(Marvel Double Shot#3/2 (fb)) - Michael "Stang" Stangowski arranged to take Cassie Lang to a birthday party for Lynne, a mutual friend.

(Marvel Double Shot#3/2) - Stang arrived to pick Cassie up to go to Lynne's birthday party, only to receive the third degree from a fretful Scott Lang. Lang, who had visions of Stang as a "smug spring breaker", a "stoned skateboarder", and with a shaved head, tattoos and piercings "up the wazoo", questioned Stang, going as far as to pull Stang's mouth open to check for a tongue piercing. Unfazed, Stang escorted Cassie to his mom's mini-van. Following them in his Ant-Man gear, Lang overheard Stang and Cassie discussing his tightly-wound state. Upon their arrival, Stang bid goodbye to his mother and followed Cassie into Lynne's house. They soon separated to mingle with other friends.

Marvel Double Shot was a four-issue series spotlighting different characters from the Marvel Universe in two short stories. The first story in this issue featured Franklin Richards and Mr. Fantastic.

Stang is eleven years old in the story. Assuming Cassie is roughly the same age, this story occurred several years before its publication date (although Marvel has played fast and loose with her age in other stories).

This is a really cute story by the way, and a nice showing for Scott Lang as a superhero/single father.
