Character traits

Hope has a focused and determined personality proved herself a hyper-competent hero when compared to Scott Lang. Hope can also sometimes be very arrogant and snarky, as shown when she mocks Scott by calling him "princess" or "useless" when he acts incompetent. Hope is generally self-assured and blunt, being brutally honest about Scott's apparent poor hero skills and his friends' unimpressive thieving reputation. Despite her outspoken demeanor, she does try to motivate Scott by encouraging him, tutoring him, and telling him that he's not that much of a failure when he does eventually improve.

Hope initially, dislike Scott simply because of his criminal record and apparent incompetence; however, she even grows to respect Scott and becomes proud of him when he demonstrates that he learned what she has been teaching him. She eventually became romantically affectionate towards Scott, but showed slight embarrassment for it.
