Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym, also known as Ant-Man, Giant-Man and Goliath, is the first character to take on the Yellowjacket codename. The character has been associated with several superhero teams in the Marvel Universe, including the Avengers and the Defenders.
Rita DeMara is the second character to go by the Yellowjacket codename. She debuted as a supervillainess, joining supervillain groups. She later becomes a superheroine, joining the Guardians of the Galaxy's ranks. She is killed by Immortus, but is later resurrected.
