P.S. it should also be said that i considered Jan to be his anchor to the Avengers book. even if he hadn't been on the team, he would have been part of Avengers lore by-proxy. he'd still create Ultron for the Avengers to deal with. he'd still get mixed up with Egghead and the Masters of Evil. the only thing changing is the status of he and Jan. they'd operate more independently of one another. he could have appeared in Spider-man's title; with Peter serving as a lab assistant to make money. maybe during the 90s, Pym would lead a rogue faction of A.I.M; scaring the hell out of his costumed acquaintances. there are plenty of ways to use him w/o the Founding Avenger title. he's Reed Richard without the family unit reigning him in.
