Pym Particles are subatomic particles discovered by Dr. Henry Pym which can increase or decrease the size and mass of objects or living beings, the mass being extracted from or shunted into a subatomic dimension known as the Microverse. It is used in the Ant-Man suit, Wasp suit and Yellowjacket suit. The process of altering size compresses force and energy, manifesting as brief shockwaves of vibration around the target, which enhances the amount of force the target can generate. It also enhances the density and resilience of a target, making them stronger and harder than normal. Living subjects of this develop inhuman effort and exertion capabilities, notably giving them the force of a bullet while shrunk.



Doctor Hank Pym discovered a rare subatomic particles he labels "Pym Particles" that reduce the distance between atoms. The Pym Particles allow a person or object to shrink to the size of an insect while increasing density and strength. Hank created a suit that could harness the Pym Particles and designed a helmet that let him communicate with ants. Hank used the Pym Particles against the soviets during the cold war, Hank became known as the "Ant-Man". In 1989, S.H.I.E.L.D. attempts to replicate particles with no success. Hank than vowed that no one would ever know how to create the Pym Particles. Years later, Darren Cross who was Hank former protégé recreate the Pym Particles. Darren also build a suit, The Yellowjacket his own version of Hank's suit designed for the military. Hank and his daughter, Hope van Dyne both realized the danger an army of equipped with Pym Particles would pose to the world. However, Darren still haven't found a way to shrink a person with the Pym Particles without dying. They planned a heist to steal the Yellowjacket. Hank than secretly hired Scott Lang to break into his house to steal the Ant-Man suit.
