May 1988 - West Coast Avengers#32 -
is back from vacation and joins to the West Coast Avengers. Her
continues with her partners only to meet: Yetrigar! Don't worry, she's
dealing with giants...
The first costume appeared was a classic yellow/black costume.
Note: for the first time Tony De Zuniga inks Wasp (and, for what I remember, an Avenger's issue)!
- West Coast Avengers#33/37 - A 6 inches Wasp battles some talking apes? And Dr.
Pym helps her to re-grow her antennaes? It can happen if you fight in
Note: between WCA#37 and WCA#42, Wasp appears in Solo Avengers#12 (2nd story) but this issue was never printed in Italy (and if you send me a scan it would be very appreciated).
- Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe Master
- Not easy to place this costume in the right chronology order because
appear in any regular issue. Wasp appears together the West Coast
second line-up, with members like Moon Knight and Tigra.
Feb 1989 -
Solo Avengers#15 - "THE WASP versus RED RONIN?" is
the incredible match announced by the title. A very sexy costume, the
during the battle (the 2nd), but different from the one on the cover
Thanks to Fonzie Mondoza for the contribution.
|Mar 1989 - West Coast Avengers#42/45 - John Byrne invented this costume and Janet wore it just in time to fight... Ultron!?||
- West Coast Avengers#43 Cover - A very beautiful cover (and story) from John
Byrne showing the West Coast Avengers. But this Wasp's costume doesn't
the story. An error in colouring it?
|Jun/Jul 1989 - Avengers Spotlight#23 - This was a Vision's story, but Janet appears in the last page, only, in the last cartoon, laughing sitted on Viz' head. For me, the model is equal to the previous one and probably it wasn't properly coloured.|
|Jul/Oct 1989 - Avengers#305/308 - In the first issue there are just two pictures of Wasp: in the double splash-page (second table) and in the following cartoon. From just one cartoon in Avengers#306 only the head and the shoulders are drawn and the costume seems to be blue but it is impossible to reproduce. In Avengers#307 she doesn't appear. In Avengers#308 the same costume (my opinion) appears with very little differences (errors in the colouring process?).|
|Half nov. 1989 - Fantastic Four#333 - There are very few cartoons showing Wasp, guest star in the story with other Avengers. For this reason, I think the colorist didn't pay enough attention to the correct colours. The Marvel Chronology Project lists this appearance after Avengers#308, so don't look at the date of the issue.|
|Jul 1989 - West Coast Avengers#46/49 - Simon Williams confesses to Jan his love for Wanda. But she knew it yet.||
- Avengers West Coast#50/52 - In this
issue: the original Human Torch! ...okay, okay, the colours used are
the same of the previos costume but i think that the model is different
enough to consider it another costume.
Also used in Avengers Spotlight #30.
|1989 - Avengers Annual #18 Cover - A part of the ATLANTIS ATTACK saga. The cover from John Byrne shows Wasp from a backview. In the story Wasp is always drawn tiny and in a way that doesn't let understand anything of the costume but the colour (yellow/orange). Certainly the costume is not like the one on the cover.|
|1989 - West Coast Avengers Annual#4 - Another part of ATLANTIS ATTACK! This is probably a previous described costume with some changes. And is probably the base model used by the penciler of the next costume. However, there are too many differences.|
1989 - Thor Annual#14 and Fantastic Four Annual#22- Atlantis Attack ends here! The same time, the same story, the same universe, the same costumes?
|Dec 1989 - West Coast Avengers#53 - West Coast Avengers#53 - Naked shoulders, naked arms. Is this model a summer costume? Or the original Human Torch is too hot? Very simple design. Another chapter of the "Acts of Vengeance" saga: Loki deceives the U-Foes and drive them against the West Coast Avengers. Byrne continues to draw marvelous tables, here helped by Keith Williams.|
Mid Dec 1989
- The Mutant Misadventures of Cloak and Dagger#9 - In the middle of the "Acts of Vengeance", Wasp fights
unusual adversaries such as Jester, the Fenris, Hydro-Man, the Rock and
robotic Hulk. She also visits the dark depths inside Cloak, guided by
The costume is a well-known model with still different colours. It will also be seen in The Ultron Imperative (almost identical) and in other occasions.
|Jan 1990 - Avengers#312, West Coast Avengers#54/55 - A "W" shape remember us what is her battle name. The black suit is still present. In Avengers#312 the costume is magenta, and on the cover of West Coast Avengers#55 the costume is yellow and not orange. Note: the stories tell the final chapters of "Acts of Vengeance". The Avengers vs the Mole Man and the Avengers vs Loki, are two very beautiful proofs of Byrne's ability in using the pencil.||
- West Coast Avengers#55/62 - A change!
Finally! The black goes and the white comes!
But comes Magneto, too! And the Dark Scarlet! Agatha Harkness! Tempus!
The costume was also used in Avengers West Coast #5 - first story.
|Feb 1990 - Avengers#315 - The Universe ceases to exist for a fragment of a second... and the event strikes also on the West Coast.|
|May 1990 - Avengers West Coast#58 - Vibro is going mad, creating tremenduous earthquakes, and the whole East Coast is in danger!|
|Aug 1990 - Marvel Comics Presents#48 - This costume is like a sport suit but in the issues you will find lots of other costumes of the past. Why? Because this could happen if you enter in the room of a super-fan of Wasp! But what could also happen if the fan is a mutant, with electric powers, and rather psichopatic?|
- Marvel Super Heroes vol.3#3
Summer Special Cover - A very interesting costume and a
Kingsize problem for
Wasp. But, don't hope to find this costume in the story (a classic
one), this beautiful costume appears only on the cover.
Thanks to Matt of the Dakota North site for the info about the inside story.
|Aug 1990 - Avengers West Coast Annual#5 - 3rd story - The Atlantean SURF attack and the Avengers have to defend... a bunch of whales.||
- Avengers West Coast Annual#5
- 4th story - A little story, a big proof of Wonder Man's
- Avengers Annual#19 - Incredible battle vs
Terminus, again, with the first costume.
The second costume belongs to the 4th story in the Annual that happens after the Terminus affair. Thanks to Brian and Susan for the informations and the scan about the 4th story.
|Oct 1990 - Avengers West Coast#63-65 - Mmmh! This is my favourite costume! "Sexy", you say? Yes, I think so. And who is the artist? John Buscema? John Byrne? George Pérez? Nooo, Paul Ryan! Thank you very much Paul!||
|Jan 1991 - Avengers West Coast#66 - Two costumes in the same story! Ultron 13!|
|Feb 1991 - Avengers West Coast#67 - Paul Ryan continues to draw The Avengers. But they must fight against... the Avengers? Yes, Hawkeye, Quicksilver and Tigra are now metallic super-pawns of Ultron!|
Mar 1991 - Avengers West Coast#68/71 & Avengers West Coaast #68 Cover - Appears the Doctor Demonicus and the Pacific Overlords. And Pele, the Goddess of Fire, strikes!
|Feb 1991 - Avengers#329 - A costume with further variations (see below).|
|Mar 1991 - Captain America#383 - Wasp, Iron Man, Thor, Wonder Man, Hawkeye, She-Hulk, Scarlet Witch, Quasar, Falcon, Henry Pym, Vision, Sersi and the Avengers crew party Captain America for his 50 years of activity! Wasp appears just in the last splash-page. The costume was probably never coloured, for an oversight or because the authors didn't know what costume was wearing Janet in that month? However a similar costume was seen later in Captain America #401, another "non-coloured" one?|
Apr 1991 -
Avengers West Coast#69, Avengers#332 Cover - In the
Avengers West Coast issue there are not images
showing the boots/shoes. Probably they were made in the same dark-green
material of the body-suit and gloves, but now who can say it?
The Marvel Chronology Project puts Infinity Gauntlet betwees Avengers West Coast #69 and Avengers#332, but I think this is not, because of this Wasp's costume "continuity".
1991 - Infinity Gauntlet#2 - The
few particulars on the cover
suggest that the costume (the first one) is different from all the
costumes previously seen. Wasp does not actually appear in the story
because she is as "dead" as the half
of the population of the entire universe, but she appears on a little
the second costume among the "disappeared" heroes.
