Thanks for watching! If your brain feels broken, you're not alone, trust me. *IMPORTANT CORRECTION* We'll get to this in the next Footnotes, but you don't actually need to "go sub-atomic" to experience quantum effects, at least in theory, and Ant-Man wouldn't even be able to get that small, considering that no matter how close his atoms get together, he still has atoms. I apologize for furthering the common misconception that "going quantum" is simply a matter of how big you are. -- KH

If my theory is correct, then Ant-Man can indeed go sub-atomic. His atoms aren't in the plane of the universe at this point, but at the tips of tiny little cones protruding into hyperspace. Since the atoms are 3-D and Marvel spacetime is at least 9-D, probably more, his atoms could take up an infinitessimal hypervolume while the arrangement remains unaffected.
Orenotter 3 soat oldin
I believe Ant-Man's inertial mass remains the same, but not his gravitational mass, as space must be warped to get his atoms that close together, cancelling out his gravity well.

Since he needs his helmet to breathe when he's smaller, in the quantum realm wouldn't he also be blind by being smaller than a photon to enter his eye?

All of this is really cool and all, but scarlet witch still has the power to literally think beings, things and concepts out of existence. I would argue she remains the most powerful avenger. Unfortunately I cannot back this claim with science. Just my limited knowledge of her actual powers, and not the watered down version all the heroes get in the mcu.

In regards to the mass issue, Hank Pimm being a leading expert in all things quantum and growth and reduction. That would’ve been a major concern of his. So it stands to reason that he would alter the equation in doctrine for the regulator. To increase density at heightened size likely through those separate formulas. Adding necessary proteins shrunk even smaller to add appropriate mass that wouldn’t kill Scott. Obviously it still needs tweaking because it still such an adverse effect on his energy levels. This is why he has to be in the suit instead of just doing it with the discs. And the reverse would have to be true for shrinking. We can’t understand it but it’s all theoretical, otherwise we would have said technology already.

i get your theories about ant man, and yes it thought the same about him getting huge in thew movie, he would just be a big balloon! i also think the 1st ant man movie is hilarious... it's like a precursor to the deadpool sense of humour but you are wrong saying ant man is he most powerful avenger... that title goes across all superhero franchises to Legion! if Legion just blinks an eye then ant-man never existtd in any universe or dimension! lol

But if he compressed all of his human-sized mass into a space that's sub-atomic, shouldn't his density be so great that he turns into a black hole?

Dr. Strange is a Defender, not an Avenger. Ant-Man's power is simply impossible. You can't have power over the laws of physics that compose your very existence and you can't become increasingly dense yet maintain an ability to move. Hell, you wouldn't even be able to breath anything at the size of a molecule!

I always just figured a mirror worked by millions of photons bouncing back and forth between the reflective surface and the objects in front of it so that every photon that hits your eye from the mirror first had to hit your body in order to carry the image of that. So it's like the photon hitting your eye is not the first time it has interacted with your physical form. And I would assume different photons are hitting you at different times but because the speed of light is so fast we can't really tell and our brain still sees it as a single projection of perception.

There was a Punisher comic where he borrowed Ant Man's suit. He shrunk down on bad guy's pizza and then went full size in their stomach. It was bloody and messy and I wondered why Ant Man never took full advantage of his suit's powers

So love the video, but here are my problems that i think you should consider. 1) Ant-man, at least in the MCU, is not an Avenger. (2/3) you credit his power to how strong he is, and that he should have reality warping... 2) Thor would still be stronger, as an avid comic book reader, and physicist, i've done some math and thor, at least what i have witnessed can apply the force of 1.42x10^23 Pa (i believe, that is what i have written down, it has been a while, and he might of have gotten stronger since then) but to be fare that is the comic version of him. 3) if reality warping would make him the strongest, because that is essentially what you are saying, or reality hopping, the Dr. Strange would take that prize. Just things to think about. PS. I believe thor's greatest strength shown so far is lifting the midgard snake, which is like planet size. he is also known to destroy plants by punching them, and was able to move, destroy, and create black holes at specific moments in the comics. Thor is not only the strongest avenger, but second to strongest in the universe, only bested by Galactus. sorry for grammar errors XD

Marvel need to invite you to be their adviser or some-sort. Ant-man's power has so much potential yet it felt so inconsistent in the movies. They need a better job showing the control over mass/density during size changes. Just as Flash has the Speed Force to break any law of physics, Ant-man has the Quantum force. I just hope Ant-man will soon get the rise in popularity as GOTG did. More Ant-man comics please!!!!!!

Do a video on how retarded (or brilliant???) the "elevator dropping through the earth" idea in the Total Recall remake is. I mean, if they have tech and resources THAT advanced that they can overcome the engineering challenges with an elevator CARRYING HUMANS going thru the core of the Earth, wouldn't it be WAY easier to fix the poisoned parts of Earth, AND set up colonies on Mars, even Venus and Europa, and start terraforming? Seems to me they MIGHT even have some resources and tech savvy left over to start checking out exoplanets before they sunk all the massive amounts of engineering/financial eggs into the dumb "let's build an elevator thru the Earth so workers can commute" basket. I'd love to hear your thoughts or even a video on it. Am I way off? Just a little? Right on?

So in Marvel's Civil war. Where Antman turns giant.(Haven't watched Antman and Wasp) How does his power work that way since they explained his power as "The power of a 200 pound man in the size of a bullet" or something along those lines. Wouldn't that mean he'd still have the power of a 200 pound man, but in the size of a house?

I’m so sick of seeing the Thor comments on this channel’s comments sections. Why is it that when a guy has long hair, he automatically resembles another guy (in real life or fiction) that you know of that has long hair? I have long brown hair and to some other people I know, I magically look like every other long brown haired guy they’ve ever seen! It’s so annoying! Men’s hair grows long too! It doesn’t just stop growing after at gets past two inches.
Yeah, no. Time is absolutely a spatial dimension.

If ant man shrinking brings his atoms closer together, would ant man enlarging be his atoms spreading apart, and wouldn't that weaken the bonds in his molecules, basically ripping him into a cloud of particles?

Kyle if you're reading this. Won't antman be weak if he becomes large? Cuz in the movie, it said that when he shrinks, his energy will be focused on one single tiny body which makes him powerful. But if he grows bigger, his energy will be spread throughout the bigger body making him weaker.

When Bruce Banner becomes the Hulk, from where does he gets the mass to grow? Same question for the Ant-Man. Banner becomes stronger and bigger as he gets angrier, hence, his body density isn't reducing, if anything, its actually increasing. How is that possible. When Hank Pym shrunk down a giant building, how the hell he was carrying it around like a FedEx delivery box. Same question for his car collection box.
