Biography[edit | edit source]

Childhood[edit | edit source]

Cassie Lang was born the daughter of Scott Lang and Peggy Rae.  When Cassie was just a young child, she was the victim of a congenital heart defect, which resulted in her father, who was a former thief and an electronics expert, needing the help of Doctor Erica Sondhiem.  At the time, Dr. Sondhiem, a medical genius, was kidnapped by Darren Cross, the owner of Cross Technological Enterprises.  Scott Lang ended up becoming the new Ant-Man and after defeating Cross, brought Dr. Sondhiem to save his daughter.

When her father became the new Ant-Man, it brought Cassie into contact with the superhero community, such as the Fantastic Four and inspired a desire to become a superhero herself.  When her father became an engineer for the Fantastic Four, Cassie lived in the Four Freedom's Plaza and eventually became friends with Kristoff Vernard, a boy who was once the ward of Doctor Doom.

After the Fantastic Four went missing, Scott found himself taking a new job with the Heroes for Hire.
