"Two weeks earlier, Dr. Hank Pym journeyed into the Quantum Realm, searching for his long-lost wife. But in this universe, Janet van Dyne contracted a Quantum Virus that corrupted her brain. So when she finally reunited with her husband after thirty long years..."
The Watcher[src]

Doctor Henry Jonathan "Hank" Pym is the husband of Janet van Dyne and the father of Hope van Dyne. Once he traveled to the Quantum Realm in order to rescue Janet, Pym was turned into a zombie by his zombified wife, who had contracted a quantum virus, and the infected couple started a Zombie Apocalypse in an alternative 2018.


Zombie Apocalypse

Rescuing his Wife

Pym arrives inside of the Quantum Realm

In 2018, once Scott Lang received a message from Janet van Dyne after having entangled with her previously, Hank Pym and his daughter Hope van Dyne reunited with Lang at the Mobile Laboratory. Pym and his daughter had been making a Quantum Tunnel and Quantum Vehicle to travel into the Quantum Realm. Pym via the Quantum Vehicle and Quantum Tunnel travelled into the Quantum Realm. He was able to find his wife, but to his shock, she had been turned into a zombie by the Quantum Virus.[1]

Before Pym could react appropriately, he was attacked and infected by his zombified wife. The infected couple then returned via Quantum Vehicle to the Mobile Laboratory and caught his daughter and Scott Lang by surprise. His daughter escaped after shrinking as the Wasp, but Lang wasn’t fast enough and became infected.

Zombified Pym attacking Captain America

Within hours, the United States of America was fully infected by the virus. When members of the Avengers arrived on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, Pym shrunk down and infected Captain America. Pym then grew to normal size and tackled Rogers to the ground, infecting him, while a huge zombie horde approached to attack the other Avengers.[1]
