Character Relationships Edit
Kang promised Yellowjacket tech and weapons to persuade him to participate in the Armor Wars.
Yellowjacket bought technology and supplies from Vulture in order to defeat Iron Man and take Cross Technologies to the next level.
Yellowjacket is voiced by Kamran Nikhad.
- "Cross my heart."
- "Do I look like a monster?"
- "Don't cross me!"
- "Don't touch the prototype."
- "Dress for success."
- "Gotta go."
- "I'm busy."
- "I'm gonna disintegrate you!"
- "It's just business."
- "Like the suit?"
- "Nothing personal."
- "Wake up, suit up, show up."
- "You catch more flies with honey."
- Vespula squamosa is the southern yellowjacket's species name.
- One of Yellowjacket's soundbites, "Do I look like a monster?", is a reference to the Ant-Man movie, where Darren asks Cassie the same question.
