Vernon is he child of both Ant-Man and Wasp.
Powers and Abilities
- Pym Particle Manipulation: He is able to use then for a variety of effects:
- Size Reduction: As Yellowjacket, Vernon Pym possesses the power to reduce himself to the size of an ant, approximately one-half inch in height, by means of the subatomic particles known as the Pym Particles. The extra mass is shunted to an unknown extradimension. He retains the strength of his normal size while shrunken.
- Size Addition: Pym also has Pym Particles which interacted with his brain to enable him to grow to gigantic height. The growth process required the rapid acquisition of bodily mass, presumably from an extradimensional source. This extradimensional mass fortified all of his cellular tissue, including his bones and muscles, enabling him to support his increased weight, and giving him superhuman strength.
- Size Alteration of Others: With practice, concentration, and energy, he is able to use the pym particles to alter the size of other people, animals, plants, or inanimate objects. This does cause him more strain.
- Insect Communication and Control: Pym's ability allows him to communicate with and control insect life by attuning to proper psionic/electrical wavelengths.
- Wasp's Sting: A powerful bioelectric blast from his hand that is capable of cutting through concrete.
- Insect Mimicry: Vernon is able to mimic the characteristics of any insect that he comes across. He is able to revert back to normal, and he is able to recall characteristics that he has mimicked.
- Skilled Combatant: Vernon is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant using special styles of unarmed combat depending on his size that he had learned from his father. If he is small, he takes advantage of the opponent's larger form by assaulting points of his/her body that they would not expect and move to another before they detected him. If he was giant, he would take advantage of his own massive form and use attacks that would either throw them off balance or render them unconscious before they could concoct a better strategy against him. He was also trained by both parents in multiple martial arts and unarmed combat forms making him a very formidable fighter.
- Scientific Genius-Level Intellect: Dr. Henry Pym is one of the world's foremost biochemists and also possesses considerable expertise in subatomic physics, robotics, cybernetics, programming, and entomology.
- Bi-Lingual: He is able to fluently speak both English and Spanish.
