Yellow Jacket/ Darren Cross will be Main Villian in Ant-Man Movie

If you know Ant-Man in his comic book form then you know that Henry Pym becomes Yellow Jacket during his time with the Avengers. In the upcoming Ant-Man film Yellow Jacket will be the main antagonist  to Paul Rudds Ant-Man. The man behind Yellow Jacket in the movie will be Darren Cross played by Corey Stoll.

Who is Darren Cross?
Not a long history of this character, Cross only appeared in two comic book issues, Marvel premier #47 and #48.  Marvel Premier #47 was also the first appearance of Scott Lang as Ant-Man.

Darren Cross was the CEO of Cross Technology Enterprises. He suffered from a rare heart condition and as a result underwent a radical surgical procedure which caused full mutation of  his entire body.
The Doctor who performed the surgery on Cross was Erica Sondheim who was also the only Doctor who could save Scott Langs daughter, Cassie. 
As Ant-Man Lang battles Cross to save Doctor Sondheim, during the battle Cross has a heart attack and dies.

Yes that is the whole story of Darren Cross, so obviously the movie is departing from the comic book.

You can get Darren Crosses two appearances for about $100 ungraded. So why are you sitting on your couch still get out to your local comic shop and get to hunting.

Good Luck on Your Hunt!!!
