(Avengers I#93) – When Iron Man called together a meeting of the Avengers founders, Vision arrived and promptly fell inert. Unbeknownst to the other Avengers, Hank Pym had also arrived to the meeting in his identity of Ant-Man, carried by the three ants: Crosby, Stills and Nash. Revealing that he had the best chance of reviving the Vision, Ant-Man and the three ants ventured inside the Vision himself to learn what caused Vision’s predicament. Inside, Ant-Man and the ants were met with Vision’s defense systems which killed Crosby. Determined to save Stills and Nash, Ant-Man ordered them to vacate the Vision immediately, hurling one of them out through the Vision’s mouth himself. When Stills and Nash returned without Ant-Man, the other Avengers began to grow concerned for the safety of Ant-Man.
Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, Neal Adams and Tom Palmer.
The ants’ names were obvious references to the musicians David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash.
