Biography

Father Figures

Biological Father in Prison

Cassie Lang was born to Maggie and Scott Lang in July 20, 2007.[2] Her father was a petty thief who vowed to quit his life of crime when his daughter was born. When Lang was five years old however, Scott was arrested after breaking into the house of the CEO of Vistacorp and sending back money the company had stolen from its customers. While Scott was still in prison, Lang's parents divorced. Maggie soon became engaged to Jim Paxton, who raised Lang like his own daughter.[1]

Birthday Party

"Daddy!"
"Peanut! Oh! Happy birthday! I’m so sorry I’m late, I didn’t know what time your party started."
"It was on the invitation!"
―Cassie Lang and Scott Lang[src]

Lang is finally reunited with her father

Three years later, Lang had a party for her eighth birthday. Scott Lang arrived, having been released from prison. Lang was delighted to see him, and father and daughter hugged. Scott presented her with a gift of an ugly stuffed rabbit, which Lang instantly loved. Despite Scott wishing to keep his brief visit a secret, an overexcited Lang went to inform her mother of Scott's arrival; Maggie promptly spat out her drink in surprise, which Lang also happily informed her father of. Maggie and Jim Paxton spoke to Scott and, after talking in private, Scott left the party, waving goodbye to his disappointed daughter.[1]

Bedtime Story

Lang speaks to her mother

"Mommy, is Daddy a bad man? I heard some grown-ups talking. They said he was bad."
"No, he's not bad. Daddy just gets confused sometimes."
―Cassie Lang and Maggie Lang[src]

The night after the party, Lang was being tucked into bed by her mother, who asked if she really liked the gift her father had given her; Lang assured Maggie that she did because she loved the rabbit's incredible ugliness. Lang then asked her mother if her father was a bad man because of the way she and Jim Paxton had spoken about him. However, Maggie assured Lang that Scott was not, just complicated and easily confused.[1]

Discussing Daddy

"Are you trying to find my daddy?"
"Uh, yeah I am, sweetheart. I just want your daddy to be safe."
"Hope you don't catch him."
―Cassie Lang and Jim Paxton[src]

Lang joined her mother and Jim Paxton for breakfast and they discussed Scott Lang, who had just broken out of prison, with Paxton given the task of tracking him down. Lang asked if he was going to find her dad, to which Paxton told her he only wanted him to be safe. In response, Lang told Paxton that she hoped he did not find Scott.[1]

Late Night Visit

Lang is kissed by her father as she sleeps

The night before he undertook a new top-secret and highly dangerous heist under the leadership of his new employer Hank Pym, Scott Lang put on the Ant-Man Suit and snuck into Maggie Lang's house, going into Lang's bedroom and gazing at her while she was sleeping. Happy at seeing his beloved daughter again, Scott continued to watch Lang for a while before enlarging himself and kissing her forehead. Once he was satisfied with his moment of seeing his daughter, Scott left as Lang continued to sleep.[1]

Saved by Ant-Man

Yellowjacket Attacks

Lang is held hostage by Yellowjacket

"Are you a monster?"
"Do I look like a monster?"
"I want my daddy!"
"I want your daddy too."
―Cassie Lang and Yellowjacket[src]

Without warning one night, Maggie Lang's home was attacked by Darren Cross, who was wearing a weaponized Yellowjacket Suit; Cross threw Maggie out the house and took Lang hostage in her bedroom, telling the terrified child that he wanted to find and kill her father. Lang questioned if Yellowjacket was a monster, something which the super villain did not deny.

Lang learns that Ant-Man is her father

Coming to her rescue, Scott Lang arrived moments later in the Ant-Man Suit and battled Cross, both shrinking down to minuscule sizes and fighting on Lang's toy train set. Lang watched in shock as tiny explosions occurred on her train set where the two fought and hundreds of Ants arrived and attacked Yellowjacket seemingly under Scott's command. Even more shocking was when Scott used a device which caused her train set to instantly grow to gigantic sizes as well as one of the ants, which grew to the size of a large dog.

When Jim Paxton arrived, he tried to bring Lang to safety, but Yellowjacket cornered them and attempted to kill them both. With only one chance left to save them, Scott then shrunk down to the smallest size possible and attacked Cross, shrinking into his Yellowjacket Suit and damaging its internal mainframe, causing the suit to crush into itself and kill Cross and wipe him out of existence forever. For a moment, Scott was lost to the Quantum Realm, unable to stop shrinking, but he was able to repair his own suit and return to his original size. Once he did, Lang hugged her father tightly. Shortly after as the police rushed up to her room, Lang watched her father make his exit as Ant-Man before reuniting with her mother.[1]

Family Dinner

Lang has dinner with her whole family

Months later[3], Lang adopted the giant ant as her new pet, treating it like a dog. Jim Paxton and Maggie Lang invited Scott Lang to their home for dinner to show their gratitude for everything he had done to protect their family. Paxton even informed Scott that he would not be going back to jail after breaking free the last time. Scott then received a call on his phone and made a quick exit, kissing Lang on the head as he left.[1]

Father's Return

In 2016, Lang was reunited with her father after he returned home from allying with Captain America.[4] Lang frequently visited her father at his house during his two-year sentence of house arrest. They played together as he tried to keep Lang entertained without having to leave the house along with Luis who came sometimes to play with them.

Visiting Scott

"Hey, you try and entertain a 10-year-old when you can't leave the house. You know the lengths that I've gone to? Close-up magic. I learned that."
"Why can't you just leave my daddy alone?"
Scott Lang and Cassie Lang to Jimmy Woo[src]

Lang playing with her father

One day in 2018, Lang played with her father in a tunnel that he had made out of cardboard boxes for them to crawl through as they go in search of treasure. The treasure turned out to be her father's "World's Greatest Grandma" trophy that Lang gave to him. Lang asked if she can take it for show-and-tell at school, but her father refused. They then "escaped" down stairs that had been converted into a slide and ran into the fence. However, her father accidentally put his foot through the perimeter.

Lang speaks with Jimmy Woo

The FBI then arrived to search the place just as Lang's mother and Jim Paxton came to pick her up. Lang questioned why the FBI were there and asked Agent Jimmy Woo why he couldn't leave her father alone. Woo tried to explain to Lang the reason due to Lang violating the Sokovia Accords, but Lang wasn't convinced. After the FBI left, Lang left with her mom but promised to come back. Unbeknownst to Scott, Lang had secretly taken the "World's Greatest Grandma" trophy with her for show-and-tell.[2]

Wanting to be a Hero

"Don't laugh. I'd be a great partner."
"Oh, Peanut! You would be awesome. And if I let you, I would be a terrible dad."
"Fine. Have Hope be your partner. She's smart."
"She reminds me of you."
―Cassie Lang and Scott Lang[src]

Lang at her father's house

Lang called her father looking for her soccer shoes, not knowing that he was currently being held captive. As a result, she went to his house to look for the shoes. The FBI arrived just after learning that Scott wasn't in his house. Lang went upstairs and found an enlarged ant in the bathtub. She went back downstairs and tried to prevent Jimmy Woo and the other FBI agents from going upstairs by claiming that her father was sick. Luckily, Scott made it home in time so as to not raise suspicion.

Lang talking with her father about being a hero

After the agents left, Scott and Lang had a conversation about him being Ant-Man again. She told him that he needs a partner to watch his back. He found out that she was referring to herself. Scott refused, explaining that if he let her help it would make him the worst parent. Later, back at her mom’s house, she smiled as she witnessed her father, as Giant-Man, on television.

Lang hugging her father after the end of the house arrest

Scott immediately went to visit Lang after having been let out of house arrest. She hugged him which led to Paxton and her mom hugging Scott too.

Later, Lang met Hope van Dyne and shrunk down for the first time with her father and van Dyne, as they sat in a shrunken car watching the movie Them! on a laptop.[2]
