CHAMPION SPOTLIGHT – YELLOWJACKET

About Yellowjacket

After learning the science behind Hank Pym’s astonishing shrinking suit, the ruthless tech mogul Darren Cross devoted his resources to creating a prototype suit with similar abilities. Cross envisioned this high-power cybernetic rig as a means to take modern warfare to a new level, personally overseeing its retrofitting and weaponization. Cross dons the imposing armor himself in hope of achieving final victory as Yellowjacket!
