VistaCorp is a technology company specializing in security systems. VistaCorp is also the owner of the WHiH World News television channel.
Vistacorp hired Scott Lang, who eventually discovered that Vistacorp were overcharging their customers. At first, he thought it was simply a coding error and changed it. He realized the company was intentionally doing this to their customers for financial gain when Geoff Zorick ordered Lang to revert his many corrections. When Lang went to Human Resources to report this, Zorick fired him. Angered by VistaCorp's larceny, Lang broke into the Vistacorp Headquarters to hack their systems and pay back the money to Vistacorp's customers. He then broke into Geoff Zorick's Mansion and stole several items before he got carried away and drove Zorick's car into the mansion's pool, leading to his arrest.
Zorick attended court to press charges towards Lang and became pleased with Lang's sentence to prison.
WHiH World News, a subsidiary of Vistacorp, interviewed Scott Lang. They talked about the reason behind his heist at Vistacorp; however, Lang felt that the news station was being unfair, due to Vistacorp being the owner of WHiH. His animosity towards the remarks made by the seemingly biased news anchor Christine Everhart, caused him to slam his hand onto the desk in frustration, resulting in him getting tased.
Hank Pym, having heard of Scott Lang's prison sentence for breaking into the Vistacorp Headquarters, hacking their systems and paying back the money VistaCorp had been stealing from their users, Pym became fascinated by Lang's selfless act to help people being cheated by the company and his skill in hacking one of the most advanced security systems in the world. After watching him for a while, Pym decided that Scott was the man to recruit for his mission.
