Scott Lang / Ant-Man

  • I still can't believe it. None of this should have happened. But it did. It's a pretty good world. I'm glad we saved it.
    Do I miss the action? Sometimes.
    Would I be there when the Avengers need me? Absolutely.
    I'd never turn my back on them — but right now, the only job I want is being a dad.
    I love you Cassie — thanks for being my hero — and I'm sorry I missed some birthdays.
    For the rest of you kids out there — word of advice: Look out for the little guy. Make mistakes. Take chances. For if there's one thing life's taught me: There's always room to grow.
    • Opening remarks, reading to children a passage from his book.


  • You're an interesting man, Scott Lang. You've lost a lot of time. But time, it isn't what you think. It's not a straight line. But I'm sure that's not exactly important to you right now. You more-than-likely want to know why I'm here, and most of all, what I want with you. I have need of your particular skill. You've been regarded, both lauded and reviled, as a thief. And believe it or not, that's what I have need of right now. You see, someone has stolen something from me. And you, my friend, are the only one who could steal it back. So, have we an accord, Mr. Lang?
  • I can get you home and give you more time if you help me. So, what's it gonna be, Ant-Man?
  • (talking about his variants) I will burn them all out of time for what they’ve done to me!

Janet van Dyne

  • I blew up his core — cut him off from time — and trapped us both down here forever. But I gave him back enough. Now that he had his suit back, he became what he always was — a conqueror. He's got weapons and technology centuries beyond anything we can dream of. He took his prison, and made it his empire. I spent years fighting him, running from him, hiding from him — and then you saved me. You brought me home. But I didn't deserve it — I unleashed a monster on this place — and ran away.


Scott: You've made a big mistake. I'm an Avenger.
Kang: You're an Avenger? Have I killed you before?
Scott: What?
Kang: They all blend together after a while.

Darren Cross / M.O.D.O.K.: I don’t know what to be. Tell me what to be.
Cassie Lang: I don't know — just don't be a dick!
Darren Cross / M.O.D.O.K.: It's too late. Look at me. I'm such a dick.
Cassie Lang: It's never too late to stop being a dick.

Kang: You think you could win?
Scott Lang: I don't have to win. We both just have to lose.

Kang: We didn't really get a chance to talk about it last time, but I always wondered, when you touched my mind, what did you see?
Janet: A monster. Who thinks he's a god.
Kang: When you can see time the way I do, you don't get to close your eyes.
Janet: And you're the only one who sees?
Kang: I am the only one that can see it's broken.
Janet: And who broke it?
Kang: I did. Every version of me. My variants. Throughout the Multiverse. Playing with time, like children. But I saw how it ends. I saw their chaos spreading across realities. Universes colliding. Endless incursions. I saw the Multiverse. And it was dying. All because of them. So, I took control.
Janet: You mean you started a war. And now you wanna wipe away any universe that's a threat to you. That's what monsters do.
Kang: That's what conquerors do! They burn the broken world. And they make a new one.
Janet: You don't care about saving anything or anyone. You only want revenge because they beat you. Because you lost.
Kang: I have lost. You have no idea what I have lost. And I will burn them out of time for what they've done to me.
Janet: You'd be wiping out entire timelines, murdering trillions of people.
Kang: I wish that mattered, Janet.

Rama-Tut: So, the exiled one is dead. You're sure he's dead?
Scarlet Centurion: If it wasn't true, I wouldn't call you.
Rama-Tut: Must really eat you up, that you're not the one who killed him.
Immortus: None of us killed him. They did. They're beginning to touch the Multiverse. And if we let them, they will take everything we've built. So let's stop wasting time. We're late.
Scarlet Centurion: How many did you call?
Immortus: All of us.
