When Scott Lang broke back into Hank Pym's house to return the suit, he was arrested, but escaped from jail with help from a horde of ants under Pym's control, including Ant-thony. Pym and Hope van Dyne trained Scott to ride on and control Ant-thony. Ant-thony accompanied Lang in stealing a device from the New Avengers Facility and assisted Lang in fighting and evading Falcon.[2]

Death

Scott Lang would again ride Ant-thony while infiltrating Cross Technologies. Flying alongside other carpenter ants, Lang and Ant-thony pursued Darren Cross up to the building's helipad as he made his escape. However, Cross fired upon the approaching swarm with a pistol, killing Ant-thony in the ensuing gunfire. This prompted Lang to swear revenge on Cross after landing on another carpenter ant below.[2]

Behind the Scenes

  • According to Stanford biologist, Dr. Deborah Gordon, Ant-thony is portrayed in a manner that is not consistent with real world ants. It has the anatomy of a virgin queen ant, and thus would have to be a female, despite what Ant-Man calls it. Its behavior would be completely impossible, such as the ant phalanx scene, as carpenter queen ants do not attack together, and only stick with mates; and ants such as Ant-thony cannot be controlled in the manner the film portrays, since the duties carried out by ants are not instructed by any leader.[3]
