Characters Appearing: Ant-Man (Scott Lang), Stature
Marvel Comics Presents #81 (Ant-Man)
Issue(s): Marvel Comics Presents #81 (Ant-Man story only)
Meanwhile, his daughter Cassie is stuck with a babysitter.
Ant-Man calls in some reinforcements...
...and defuses the bomb.
Some nice art, a little reminiscent of Marvel's attempts in the late 60s of spicing up their house style with Steranko elements. But honestly there is no story here.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: It's said that it's not possible to contact Iron Man, although it's not said why.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
The babysitter says Scott is trying to defuse a bomb. How does she know that? Scott's ID is supposed to be a secret at this point.

The story is that the bomb squad is stuck in traffic, so Stark Enterprises is not confirming or denying the existence of a bomb but has evacuated all personnel except for (per a reporter) "one of its research developers, Scott Long" (the reporter gets his name wrong). So as far as the world is concerned, it's Scott that is disabling the bomb, not Ant-Man.
I suppose it's a placement consideration that Scott is called a research developer for Stark, but he could just be a hired contractor, and since the reporter gets the name wrong she could have his employment details wrong as well.
