Didja Know… The Wasp has sported over 400 different costumes?

Listen, don’t quote on that number, but if you ask certain people they’ll tell you it ain’t too far off, bunky! How? Why? Where does she find that much spandex? Those are good questions, but maybe only the Wasp herself knows for sure.

It all started way back in TALES TO ASTONISH #44, when Janet van Dyne met scientist Hank Pym and a match was made in an ant farm. As Ant-Man, Pym needed a partner and Jan filled the bill, so the Wasp went a flyin’ and lo, the costume parade began! Seemed like every time readers glommed onto her, the Wasp was showing off a new look—in the 1960's alone, she sported nearly two-dozen different costumes!

Some of her artists loved this about Jan. When Jolly George Perez became the Avengers’ artist back in the 1970's, he knuckled down and broke a plethora of pencils dream up delightful duds for the diminutive damsel, and to this day some of his designs are detailed as many a frantic fan’s favorites. Time will only tell how many new looks the Wasp will wing it through as an Agent of Wakanda, but between you and us, we can’t wait to see!
