Av3v0380.gif Av3v0381.gif Jan/Mar 2001 - Avengers Vol. 3 #38 Cover - Or not? These are two different versions of the ultimate costume. Probably proofs of colouring by Tom Smith, or advertising images.  

Mar 2001 - Avengers Vol. 3 #38/40 - This is the ultimate version! ALAN DAVIS starts drawing the Avengers, Mark Farmer inks and Tom Smith colours! Do you need an advice? The cover is wonderful, but the double splash-page at the end of the first issue is great!

Note: the graphic restyling involves the costumes of two characters of the others, Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch.

The costume also appears in X-Treme X-Men #11 and Infinity Abyss#1.

Janet with CAP and Hank. Note the V shape of the costume.


Jun 2001 - Avengers Vol. 3 #41/44 - Janet was worried about Tony Stark's life. He had closed the Stark Solution, giving his fortune to the Foundation Maria Stark and he was wearing an old, ancient model of the armor. How this fact would influence the efficiency of the Avengers? Would they succeed in stopping Kang and the Scarlet Centurion?

Janet is inviting Jack of Hearts to enter in the Avengers: what do you think he'll say?


2001 - Avengers Annual 2001 Vol. 3 - The third man was Henry Pym!

A very good work by Ivan Reis, and a costume already seen for Wasp, but with different colours.


Oct 2001 - Avengers Vol. 3 #45/46 - Thanks to a post of Tom Smithon the Avengers Message Board the new Wasp's costume is here.

Tom Smith explains: "There is not one shot of her feet or boots anywhere in the issue. I would kinda like her bootless with just black leggings , But if she was drawn with boots I would color them red."

And in the following story Wasp appears with red boots.

Av3v049a.gif Av3v049b.gif Feb 2002 - Avengers Vol. 3 #49 - The "Silent Month" involves the Avengers, too. And the images are terrible to see: until the signature at the bottom of the Terms of Surrender.

Jun 2002 - Avengers Vol. 3 #52/54 - I found it on the Avengers Micro Heroes web-site, so I asked Robert Bradley more information about the costume. And now, the costume is here!

The war against Kang is so hard, that Tony Stark wears again his armor. Iron Man is back.


May 2002 - The Order #2 - I only knew that I found the scan on the Avengers Message Board but... where the Avengers came from? And what was the issue, surely not The Avengers series... but thanks to Ryan "Bynaryan" Jones I knew the truth!


Jun 2002 - The Order #3 Cover - I found the cover without titles, many months ago, and then I never heard speaking about The Order before. Only visiting the milehighcomics site I could find the right chronology of the costume. But, I don't know how is the front shape of the costumen because on the cover Wasp is seen only by e backview.


Aug/Sep 2002 - The Order #5/6 - Linked together to protect mother Gaea, reverted to their "darker" versions, the Defenders were near to the madness; they wanted to protect the Earth and claimed it as their own. This was the final effect of the Yandroth's curse! Will the heroes be able to avoid The "new" Order?

The costumes are supposed to be the same one used during the fight against the Defenders.

Thanks to Erik Elzenaar for the info and the scans about the Order's storyline.



Jul 2002 - Fantastic Four vol.3 #55 - A Fantastic familiar story for the most familiar supergroup of the Marvel Universe. And Janet is the baby-sitter.

Meanwhile, Ben and Johnny have to fight again the Skrull menace. This time their enemy has stolen... the Fantasticar!!! And Reed and Sue party their 256th (=44) anniversary month together in a special way...

Janet and Valeria Richards. What a lovely baby!

Aug 2002 - Avengers Vol. 3 #55 - Martial Court for Warbird, Asgardian Lunch for the Avengers and ... the Last Farewell.


Oct 2002 - Avengers Vol. 3 #57 - Does the new love story between Hank and Janet continue? It's too early to say it, an unknown menace involves all the world and the Avengers become the new leaders of the Earth.

On a cover of Avengers #61 found on internet, there was a different coloured version of the costume, but on the real cover the colours were original.


Nov 2002 - Avengers Vol. 3 #58/60 - In the dark dimension where are the Capitals of the world, all the thing have a different colour, and the Wasp's costume, too.


Jan 2003 - Avengers Vol. 3 #60 - The same costume, but the colours are brown/orange instead of dark brown/red. The same costume appears on the beautiful "painted" cover of Avengers Vol.3 #65, with slightly golden effects of light.


Feb 2003 - Spider-Man Tangled Web #21 - A delicious Christmas story! It was drawn in a cartoon-style but Wasp's outfit is great! There you can find a match between super-heroines, your always friendly neighborhood Web-Spinner, and JJJ who explains to a bunch of young Japanese students how Spider-Man has ruined the Christmas Eve night knocking down Santa Claus! Don't lose this story!

Nov 2003 - Avengers Vol. 3 #71-77/80 - A sweet and hard issue, speaking of sentiments and memories, with a troublesome and dangerous break caused by Dave Cannon alias Whirlwind. Wasp often used the 1st costume, in She-Hulk vol.3 #1, Marvel Team-Up vol.2 #1, Avengers/Thunderbolts #1, during Civil War, and, with a yellow pair of gloves in New Avengers#28. Moreover, it is very similar to the one used during the Avengers Forever saga.
The 2nd is a copy of a very sexy old costume drawn by George Pérez 26 years before; in this story it is not worn by Janet but by a "pretty lady" impersonating Wasp.


Sep 2004 - New Invaders #0 - Old and New Invaders vs the Avengers: superheroes!

The costume in not properly a Wasp's costume but a Giant-Wasp costume, and it is a variant of the previous one (also used in giant form), but with different colours.

Aug 2004 - Iron Man Vol. 3 #84/85 - Jorge Lucas and the Studio F (don't) care these Wasp costumes. The first one becomes the second one while fighting Arsenal. The second one becomes the dark/golden costume (see above) after some panels, the same of the cover.

2004 - Marvel Holiday Special 2004 - A Japanese artist for Wasp!

Wasp does not wear gauntlets during the battle, but after the fight she wears them, so I considered them part of the costume.

Jul 2005 - Great Lakes Avengers #2 - The Great Lakes Avengers need new members and goes to the place where there are plenty of them: New York City. But all of them refuse, why? Wasp is among them, but only on the cover.

The costume could be a modified revival of the old one used in Avengers vol.1 #71/72.

Aug 2006 - The Thing Vol.2 #8 - It is a very important event for the Marvel Universe. What? Janet in purple costume at Ben Grimm's Bar Mitzvah? No, Wasp who spied on the other players' cards and suggested them to Hank, during a poker party.

Jul 2007 - Silent War#5 - Finally a wasp costume!

The Inhumans wanted their Terrigen Crystals back from the USA government, so they assaulted the Pentagon. The Mighty Avengers intervened and Wasp felled Somnus. The result of the battle remained in balance until Black Bolt... WHISPER!!!

Jan 2009 - Mighty Avengers #8 - Janet is drawing new uniforms for the Avengers, but the group has to stop a horde of alien symbiotes. They are highly infective and Giant Woman is bitten, too, being transformed in Giant Venom!

...a new growth formula...you can go right from Giant Woman to Wasp...

But it was not Henry, who gave her the new growth formula. It was Criti Noll, a Skrull, who gave her the seed of her own destruction...

May 2010 - Mighty Avengers#35/36 - Janet is not dead! Transformed in a living explosion of Pym Particles, grown at universal size, she was found by Henry Pym in another dimension: the Underspace. The genius created the Infinite Mansion to contain her expansion and to stop her dispersion.

... 10 billions of Jocastas have the same function of the neurons in the human body... to enforce Jan's brain waves.

Apr 2012 - Secret Avengers#22, 24, 25, 33, 34 - Half of a costume already seen, but she isn't the same Wasp we know. Cold, metallic, a cyborg from an alternate reality where the one to die was Henry and where the Deathlok prosthetic add-ons could not save him.
