A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 296

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

Due to popular demand, here’s the rest of Ant-Man’s “fantastic voyage” from Avengers #93…

Okay, as you saw yesterday, the Vision collapses, seemingly dead. So Ant-Man shows up and decides to go into the Vision’s body to help him…

The journey is so long that I actually have to skip ahead to the middle of the voyage, which was written by Roy Thomas and drawn by Neal Adams…

Pretty darn cool stuff!

What would you term “the” moment here?

“Next stop: HEAD CITY!” is the moment, for me.

If I had to choose one, “the” moment would be when he escapes from the metal plates, but i think the whole journey is one great moment.

Thank for posting it.

I know it dates the book, but Hank’s ants being named Crosby, Stills & Nash fills me with glee.

have to go with the moment of hank wondering if he dares repair the broken brain cable in the vision. plus also love when the vision awakes and scolds iron man cap and thor for dismissing some avengers

“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a hydroelectric dam.”

I must use this sentence accompanied with a deadly serious facial expression within the next week.

A bit of fridge logic with the bubbles not affecting the antibodies… wouldn’t they be ejected from the Vision’s body when he went through something if they weren’t also intangible?

Hank Pym sure has an inferiority complex. Doesn’t he think he could take on Hawkeye or the Black Panther? Does he also think the Wasp is unqualified to be an Avenger?

I like the bit where Roy leaves room for future story ideas, without specifying what they were. I wonder if he had in mind the eventual revelation that Vision had the original Torch’s android body? Anyone read any interviews to that effect?

Best Ant-Man story EVER. The Atom only dreams of being that cool.

“The” moment for me is the closeup after Pym reaches the cranium and we get a closeup of his eyes, as he “analyzes…dissects…probes…reconstructs”.

That right there is Hank Pym’s finest moment: the scientist of the impossible. When I read scene in this month’s Avengers where Eternity tells Hank that he’s the ‘Scientist Supreme’, this scene is what came to my mind.

And in the previous comment I wrote “closeup” twice in the same sentence, so I’m clearly not “Commenter Supreme”. :-(

(that would be Omar Karindu, of course)

The reference to Al Feldstein is clearly the moment.

Now THIS is cool!

I don’t know if I’ll ever be convinced that Hank Pym is the ‘Scientist Supreme’, but he is so much this whole sequence is an awesome moment. Yeah, the Atom will never be this cool…

So was Hank Pym originally Ant Man because he accidentally shrunk himself and couldn’t reverse it for a while or is that just what happened here? I could never figure out how he went from Giant Man and Yellowjacket to.. Ant Man.
Adams’ art is amazingly fun art to stare at.
I’d say that last panel is the moment.

Both one of the best avengers to this day,as well as best marvel books Adams drew. A true classic!
