I think one of the saddest parts about this whole Ant-Man fridging Jan and her not getting to be an Avenger in the MCU thing is that no one would be more disappointed by this than the Avengers themselves. After all, Janet is the 5th greatest Avenger of all time- and “If the Avengers themselves voted on this list, it’s likely the Wasp would take the number one spot.” (x)
A founding Avenger, leader, fashionista, and honestly one of the Avengers that loves being an Avenger the most, Jan definitely deserved a spot on the MCU Avengers. It’s sad that we’re still in an era where Marvel Studios can’t value the woman who founded and named the Avengers.
In the hopes that Marvel will understand that Jan is an important and necessary addition to the MCU Avengers as an active superhero and not a footnote in Hank Pym’s story, we’re tweeting out on twitter using the #JanetVanCrime hashtag. Please lend your voice so Marvel can avoid this mistake, or at least be less inclined to make future ones.
For the inevitable dudebros that are going to come up to me and try to tell me Jan isn’t important to the Avengers, don’t talk to me, talk to Jan’s earrings:
