History: (All-New, All-Different Avengers I#10 - BTS) - When Nadia, daughter of Hank Pym, and Edwin Jarvis arrived at the Van Dyne residence to meet the Wasp (Janet Van Dyne), Janet rushed out of her home, still on the phone with Barry. Assuring Barry she was on her way, Janet claimed she could hear Barry's helicopter landing and suggested Nadia accompany her to help defuse a bomb that threatened to swallow the East Coast into the Microverse.

Comments: Created by Mark Waid and Mahmud Asrar.

All-New, All-Different Avengers I#12 showed both Wasps leaving the White House, having met with the President and remarking on how they stopped a Microverse Bomb. This tying in of the Microverse Bomb plot and the White House establishes the likelihood that Barry was intended to be Wasp's nickname for real life then-President Barack Obama, who used the nickname of "Barry" when he was younger. Without definite confirmation and with Marvel's sliding time scale, Barack Obama will eventually be considered topical, thereby making the character covered in this profile a different character instead of Barack Obama. With that in mind, I covered the character as if he were not the President. If considered a totally different character, it's unclear who exactly this separate Barry character was but one could speculate, based on Wasp's conversation with him, that he could be the helicopter pilot or just a friend of hers who had ordered the helicopter for her as a mode of travel and then after the successful mission to save the world, the Wasps were invited to meet the generic "U.S. President" afterwards.
