Brief Summary:

Commentary:

Well, despite Stan's claims, the Porcupine is less than a startling villain. He's a man in a goofy suit after some cash.

This was a less than stellar affair. Stan seems to be running thin of ideas for his miniature heroes. There's some of the usual problems that result in being tiny, and there's of course the normal ass kicking of the bad guy, but not much else to comment on from this one.


Favorite Panel:

Stan Lee as comic book Nostradamus again.

Favorite Quote:

"If this was an adventure story, it would say 'The Tension Mounts' at this point!" - Wasp.

Runner up goes to Ant Man's "Like I always say, you can't please a female!"
