The Wasp (Janet van Dyne) is a fictional superheroine appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Tales to Astonish #44 (June 1963). She is usually depicted as having the ability to shrink to a height of several centimeters, fly by means of insectoid wings, and fire bioelectric energy blasts. She is a founding member of the Avengers as well as a long time leader of the team. (From Wikipedia)

I’ve always been fascinated in the way comics characters evolve.
Character changes, storylines and most notably costume changes.
Costumes often serve as a true reflection of the times.
Look at Janet’s 1963 original Science-fiction inspired appearance.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a look at my homage to an intriguing character from the Marvel Universe.
