Well, strap in, folks, because we're talking about the top 8 Ant-Man storylines from the comics, and let me tell you, they're about to blow your goddamn minds.

1) "To Steal an Ant-Man"

"To Steal an Ant-Man" is a fucking emotional ride of a comic book storyline that introduces Scott Lang, a down-on-his-luck thief who steals the Ant-Man suit to save his kid. The Ant-Man movie is loosely based on it and manages to capture its heart while delivering a badass ride with awesome action scenes. So, if you're a fan of the movie, be sure to check out this comic.

2) "Avengers Disassembled"

Avengers Disassembled is a huge fucking arc that'll rip your heart out. It's all about the goddamn collapse of the Avengers and the tragic death of Scott Lang. This version of Scott was a total badass and a worthy successor to Hank Pym, but he meets his fucking demise thanks to The Scarlet Witch and Jack Of Hearts.

However, Scott's death also sets up Cassie Lang, aka Stature, to continue the Ant-Man legacy, and shows just how important he was to the Marvel Universe. If you want to dive into the legacy of Ant-Man and get your heart ripped out in the process, Avengers Disassembled is a vital starting point.

3) "The Irredeemable Ant-Man"

Moving on, we've got "The Irredeemable Ant-Man" which is all about Eric O'Grady, a sleazy, womanizing douchebag who steals the Ant-Man suit for shits and giggles. But you know what? He's still a lovable asshole, and this series is a goddamn riot.

4) "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Small World"

Fourth on our list is "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Small World," which sees Scott Lang and his partner Hope van Dyne (AKA the Wasp) go on a mission to save Hank Pym's goddamn daughter from some weird-ass quantum realm shit. It's a wild ride, and it's got all the witty banter and crazy action you'd expect from a classic Ant-Man tale.

5) "Ant-Man: Last Days"

Next, we've got "Ant-Man: Last Days" which is all about the end of the world and Scott Lang trying to do the right thing one last goddamn time. It's a real tear-jerker, and it's got some of the most emotional moments in Ant-Man history.

6) "Ant-Man: Second-Chance Man"

Sixth on our list is "Ant-Man: Second-Chance Man," which sees Scott Lang trying to turn over a new goddamn leaf and become a legit superhero. Of course, things don't go as planned, and he ends up getting mixed up in some serious shit, but that's just par for the course with Ant-Man. 

7) "Ant-Man: Larger Than Life"

Seventh, we've got "Ant-Man: Larger Than Life," which sees Scott Lang going up against some goddamn cosmic-level threats. Yeah, this little dude takes on some big-ass challenges, and it's a goddamn blast to read. 

8) "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Lost and Found"

And finally, we've got "Ant-Man and the Wasp: Lost and Found," which is all about Hope van Dyne trying to find her goddamn mother in the quantum realm. It's got all the mind-bending craziness you'd expect from an Ant-Man story, and it's a great goddamn read. 

So there you have it, folks, the top 8 Ant-Man storylines from the comics. These tales are full of action, humor, heart, and goddamn curse words, and they're a must-read for any true Ant-Man fan.
