MARVELOUS MARVEL LADIES MONTH: STATURE
first appeared: Marvel Premiere #47; Young Avengers #2 (as Stature)
who is she? Cassie Lang was the daughter of Scott Lang, the second Ant-Man. Scott first stole Hank Pym’s Ant-Man suit in order to save Cassie after the only doctor who could save her from a congenital heart defect had been kidnapped and held by Cross Technological Enterprise. When her father joined the Avengers after her parents’ divorce, Cassie used the advantage to secretly expose herself to Pym Particles, hoping to be a hero like her father. The effect of the long-term exposure became apparent when she ran into the newly-formed Young Avengers and, in a burst of anger, grew several feet.
Cassie joined the Young Avengers as Stature and quickly became best friends with Kate Bishop, or “Hawkingbird” (later Hawkeye). She grew romantically attached to Iron Lad, or the young Kang the Conqueror, and when he left she at first transferred this affection onto the Vision II, though she soon came to like Vision (or Jonas) for him. Cassie remained on the Young Avengers, thought she was also part of the Initiative after the superhero Civil War and for a time split her hero work between the Young Avengers and the Mighty Avengers.
During the Avengers: Children’s Crusade miniseries, Cassie was reunited with her dad when she and the other Young Avengers were taken by Iron Lad (returned with the intent of restoring Wanda Maximoff’s memories) into the timestream to the moment when Scott Lang was killed by Jack of Hearts. Cassie and her father were happy to be together again, though it was all shattered when Doctor Doom killed Cassie soon after. As of Marvel NOW!, Cassie is still deceased.
She is, however, as far as I know, still alive in the Ultimates universe (not that anyone wants to read that).
what can she do? Several years of exposing herself to Pym Particles has given Cassie the ability to alter her size at will, either becoming extremely small or growing as large as a building. As she is young and mostly inexperienced, her emotions can at times effect when and how she changes; this happened when her mother and stepfather found out she was Stature, and her stepfather’s feelings upset her so much she almost shrank out of existence.
