Two years after his Marvel Cinematic Universe arrival, played by Paul Rudd, Ant-Man became the lead of his own animated series. Appropriately titled “Ant-Man,” the series of shorts would see the titular shrinking hero stand toe-to-toe against a variety of villains, such as Egghead (Sam Riegel), Yellowjacket (William Salyers), and others. Josh Keaton of “Voltron: Legendary Defender” and “Hercules” fame took on the lead role, but, as one could imagine, his two-dimensional take on Scott Lang couldn’t save the world from evil alone.
Alongside Dee Bradley Baker’s Hank Pym and Laura Bailey’s Cassie Lang, Bernadette Rostenkowski herself, Melissa Rauch, joined the fray as Hope Pym — aka the Wasp. Sadly, however, she only appeared in two of the six episodes, “Not a Date” and “Alien Invasion,” amounting to a rather disappointing run as the Marvel Comics mainstay. Thankfully, she got a much more significant spotlight under the DC banner when she got to voice fan-favorite Harley Quinn in 2017’s “Batman and Harley Quinn” animated feature.
All in all, Melissa Rauch’s legacy as the Wasp doesn’t come close to that of MCU staple Evangeline Lilly, but at least she got to try the character out for a little while. Perhaps, someday she’ll return to the world of Marvel in some form for a bit more substantial of a part.
