> Recently I purchased some back issues, trying to fill holes, but now I have a couple questions. In Avengers #36-39, of the Heroes Return series, why was Iron Man in his classic armor?
I think that was just after his modern armor came alive and started killing people, so Tony went retro to avoid it happening again.
> Also, why were there two Hank Pym's, and what came of both of them?
I don't remember what caused it, but for a time Hank was two people: the scientific and emotionally detached Hank Pym and the emotional and impulsive Yellowjacket. The two halves were eventually brought together to stop either Hank from fading away.
I liked the storyline, but I really hated that Hank permanently became Yellowjacket after that. The rationale was that he could be both emotional and scientific, but the negative implications of the name and costume are a bit much for me.
> And finally, what happened to Triathalon, the Triune, Pagan & Master Templar?
The Triune guys haven't been seen since, but Triathlon had a few guest appearances and is now a regular on Avengers Initiative. Supposedly he'll be taking on the name "3-D Man" soon to be a full-fledged Skrull-hunter.
