The Avengers: The Fall of Hank Pym

In the Marvel Comics world, Henry “Hank” Pym was one of the founding members of The Avengers. And though he's conspicuously absent from Marvel's cinematic universe, this story arc is still must-read material for what it says about the group dynamic of the team and how they react when one of their own makes a terrible mistake. When Hank Pym's volatile mental state endangers the team and the people he's supposed to protect, his fate is put in the hands of the court – and his former teammates face a difficult decision. For anyone interested in how the Avengers interact with each other on a personal level, this story by former Marvel editor-in-chief Jim Shooter is absolutely essential reading material.
