Quantumania - CASSIE LANG!

Marvel Legends - Cassie Lang (Ant-Man & Wasp Quantumania BaF) - Hasbro 2023

One more glorious step towards the Young Avengers in the MCU! The Young Avengers comic is one of my favorite superhero team books of all time. In the story, the Avengers were missing and Vision initiated this failsafe protocol where a group of backup Avengers were gathered to form a replacement team. They are all young versions of the classic characters, often with some familial pedigree. Cassie Lang, the daughter of Scott Lang, joined the team as Stature. In the MCU and Disney+, there have been 8 or 9 Young Avengers characters introduced so far in unrelated projects. So, in my mind, a Young Avengers series or film is definitely coming. Cassie Lang has made a handful of MCU appearances, but it was in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania that we first met her as a young woman in a costumed role. She never adopts a codename in the movie, but in the comics she has been: Stature, Stinger, Ant-Girl, and Giant-Girl. I kind of hope she gets a new name to add to her collection. Let's check out Cassie below!

I was happy that Cassie saw release as the oversized Build-a-Figure from the Quantumania Marvel Legends wave. Of course, this means that you have to buy six figures in order to assemble her, but she's worth it. Also, it should be noted that this is the first oversized female figure in the Marvel Legends wave. There have been six female Build-a-Figures (Brood Queen, Jubilee, Mantis, Okoye, SP//dr, and Cassie) but the others were all normal scale.

Here are all the Cassie pieces when you purchase the six figure above (note: Ant-Man does not come with a Build-a-Figure piece). It's impressive that she comes with an alternate head and an extra set of hands.

Once again, these Quantumania figures have really great eye details under the visors.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is Cassie with Wasp from the Quantumania Legends line.

And here is Cassie with the Quantumania Wasp from the the Titan Hero Series line.

Here is Cassie with her 2018 Stinger figure.

And here are the MCU Young Avengers characters so far: America Chavez, Kate Bishop, Cassie Lang, and Sylvie. (Note: Sylvie is a reimagining of the young Enchantress character from the second Young Avengers roster).

  1. I actually really enjoyed the movie and her character. Not sure why there was so much hate. Been trying to buy her complete via Ebay, but I may have to just suck it up and by the figures. Some good ones there. Some repeats. Still - would cost the same as just buying her loose.
