The Yellowjacket suit was created by Darren Cross who used the Ant-Man suit technology as a base, it as designed to be weaponized and more advanced version of Hank Pym's suit. However, in Darren's two confrontations against Scott Lang, it was shown that the Yellowjacket suit was far from perfect, compared to the Ant-Man suit; if the user wears the suit for too long, they will eventually go insane, due to the fact that Darren was unable to perfectly replicate the Pym Particles.
After a long and difficult fight, the suit was sabotaged by Scott, who shrunk between the molecules of the solid titanium armor to reach and destroy the suit's circuitry and inner mechanisms. The suit's now unstable shrinking function caused Darren to be crushed in the suit, imploding his body into nothingness, effectively killing himself and destroying the suit.
