Comics that I love [3/?]: Avengers Origins: Ant-man and The WaspWhat do ants and wasps have in common? What do this ant and this wasp have in common? An emptiness…? An aloneness…? An unbearable sense of loss…? … do insects love? … these two do.
Oh but I can. Obliterating you will rid me of the failure from which my origin is derived. You may continue to spout your platitudes Dr. Pym, I will enjoy hearing them as I crush the last dregs of flawed human life from your corpse.
[laughs bitterly] You don’t get it, do you? I’ll always be remembered for bringing you into existence and with that, you will always be remembered as my monstrous creation. My science project gone wrong. You were created as a failure, something that needs fixing, even now.
Janet gasped in surprise. “You could do that?! That would be sooooooo~ AWESOME!” Janet grinned widely. “I could look good and kick ass at the same time! …not that I don’t look good kicking ass already, but still!”
“Well, I’m trying to.” After tapping a series of commands into the tablet, he turned it around to show her. “There are many options; weaving certain fibres into the material of the clothing that would reach with the particles is one way about it.” He paused in thought, his hand moving to his cheek. “That could be some sort of spray that could combine with the material. But how would you insure a complete conversion …”
I am not flawed! I suffer no failing like you organic wretches!
You were created by man, by me. There is a saying, one that you probably know of. “Like father, like son.” My brain patterns are the basis for your programming, something you know just as well as I do. No matter how many times you upgrade, you can never be rid of the fact that one of the most flawed men in the entire human race created you.
“You just give ideas is all~” She said grinning mischievously, deciding to let him take that statement however he wanted to. “And not so much, unless I’m actually interested in what you’re studying… which usually doesn’t happen.”
“Well I am supposedly an inspirational scientist in my field, yet I don’t think that is quite what you mean.” Flashing her a smile, he pulled out his small Stark-tablet from his lab coat pocket. “So if I was working on a way to get anything you wear to shrink down with you, that wouldn’t interest you?”
Perhaps you are right, but someone will. If you continue on this path Ultron then someone will take you down. Everyone has there flaws, even you.
“Pfft… I think you’re plenty fun, honey.” She said smiling. “And you entertain me just fine! Especially just by standing in the room. You’re perfect eye candy for my creativity…” She giggled and pulled back, looking at him.
“For your creativity?” he asked with a confused frown. “You are giggling too. Maybe I don’t want to know what you mean by that.” He raised an eyebrow at her, before shaking his head in amusement. “Sitting in my lab doesn’t have the same effect though, right?”
Janet pulls back and puffs out her cheeks a little. “It just seems like you’re /always/ in there…. and you know how easily bored I get…” She smiled and hugged him again. “I’m not letting you go back in there now that I’ve got you here.” Jan grinned and snuggled close to his chest.
“Uh …” he started, not exactly sure what to say. “Well yes, but surely you don’t need me to entertain you?” He cautiously hugged her back, eventually relaxing, even breaking out a smile of his own as she snuggled against him. “We both know I’m not that much fun. You might end up more bored than you were to begin with.”
J-Jan? [blinks before hugging her back] I have missed you too. [laughs] Unfortunately I kind of need my lab to further my research. If I didn’t, I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t be in there are much.
