History: (Marvel Universe Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Hank Pym created a bridge between Earth's Macroverse and the Microns' home in the Microverse.

(Marvel Universe Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes I#7 (fb)) - In recent times, the Microns' home was conquered by the Psycho-Man, who enslaved most of the Microns and began conquering other worlds within the Microverse. When Pym's shrinking experiments began raining down Macroverse items onto Psycho-Man's kingdom, Psycho-Man sent an invasion force to the Macroverse to destroy Pym while the remaining Microns followed.

(Marvel Universe Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes I#7) - When the Avengers' Wasp, Iron Man and Captain America were trapped by the Evil Microns, they were rescued by the arrival of the true, heroic Microns, led by Arcturus Rann. Introducing themselves, the Microns explained their origins and Psycho-Man's conquering of the Microverse. After assuring the Avengers that Psycho-Man and his Evil Microns were their responsibility, the Microns promised to help the Avengers push Psycho-Man back into the Microverse. Teaming with the Avengers, the Microns attacked the Evil Microns while Wasp retrieved Pym Particles to shrink Captain America and Iron Man out of their bindings. The Evil Microns soon began to overwhelm the Microns and the Avengers until Wasp grow to normal size, appearing gigantic to the Microns, and stepped on the Evil Microns to defeat them. With a victory won, the Microns prepared to return to the Microverse despite Wasp trying to accompany them to help against Psycho-Man. Arcturus Rann declined the Avengers' help and the Micron Bug suggested if they wanted to help, they could stop shrinking Macroverse items into the Microverse. The Microns then shrunk out of the Macroverse back down into the Microverse.

Comments: Created by Chris Yost, Christopher Jones and Victor Olazaba.

The Microns were never seen on the actual Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes cartoon series but they appeared in one of the original comic book stories (prior to the comic series changing over to adaptations of the episodes).

While not specifically explained, one could assume that the Evil Microns were Microns that had been enslaved by Psycho-Man. We don't see the Psycho-Man's emotion-manipulating device at all in the story but it seems plausible that the Psycho-Man could have used the device to transform normal Microns into Evil Microns.

Bug

Bug was an insectoid member of the Microns who often spoke with a speed impediment involving the periodic interruption of his words with the sound "chk!" He joined the other Microns in traveling to the Macroverse, where he remarked on how he thought humans would be bigger. During the fight against Psycho-Man's Evil Microns, Bug fought while commenting on how big everything was in the Macroverse, suggesting the Microns let Psycho-Man have the Macroverse. Once the Evil Microns were defeated, Bug said his goodbyes to their Avenger allies by suggesting that if they wanted to help against Psycho-Man, they could stop shrinking Macroverse items into the Microverse. Bug then accompanied the Microns back to the Microverse.

Bug appeared to be more agile than a human and carried a battle staff.

Evil Microns

The Evil Microns were Microverse natives that were enslaved into servitude by the Psycho-Man. They remained ever-loyal to their dictator and were the chief invasion force into the Macroverse when the Psycho-Man ordered the destruction of Hank Pym. Quickly trapping the nearby Avengers, the Evil Microns were soon driven back by the arriving Microns. Renewing their attack, the Evil Microns soon overwhelmed the Microns until the Avengers' Wasp grew to her normal size, appearing gigantic to the Evil Microns, which she defeated by stepping on.

The Evil Microns all carried varying types of weaponry, including spools of hard atomic roping to bind larger creatures.

Flare

Flare was a female member of the Microns who appeared close to her teammate Quark. She accompanied the Microns in traveling to the Macroverse to stop Psycho-Man's Evil Microns and during the subsequent, she was hit by one of the Evil Microns' blasters before the Evil Microns were defeated. She then joined the Microns in returning to the Microverse.

Flare had butterfly-like wings that enabled flight, a sonic scream and she could project what appeared to be some sort of "fairy dust" that harmed the Evil Microns.

Psycho-Man

Psycho-Man was a Microverse conquerer who took over Inner Space, enslaving the Microns there before moving outward to conquer other territories within the Microverse. When Hank Pym's shrinking experiments began depositing Macroverse items into Psycho-Man's territory, he became aware of the Macroverse and ordered his Evil Microns armies to invade the Macroverse and destroy Pym. When the Evil Microns were defeated by the combined might of the Avengers and the heroic Microns, the Microns returned to the Microverse to continue their war against Psycho-Man

Psycho-Man was an exceptional conqueror and commanded legions of Evil Microns.

Quark

Quark was a rock-like member of the Microns who seemed especially fond of his teammate Flare. He accompanied the Microns to the Macroverse, where he aided against the Evil Microns until Flare was hit by a stray energy blast. Once the Evil Microns were defeated, Quark returned to the Microverse with his teammates.

Quark appeared to be able to extend his rock-like body, which also granted him superhuman strength and durability.

During his time in the Macroverse, Rann teamed with the Avengers to defeat the Evil Microns before choosing to return to the Microverse without the Avengers' help.
