    Oddly enough, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #14 (which also has Ant Man cameo) featured the Square Cube law, which Squirrel Girl takes advantage of, tricking her super villain du jour, Enigmo to become kaiju sized, but since he didn't have access to Pym particles, his ankles exploded under that kind of weight

    Yes, it's true that in the movie they SAID mass doesn't change... but every scene save a few scenes contradicts that.
    When he's small, he should still be 171lbs (or more, because of the suit) and yet he can climb on an ant and the ant can easily still fly, AND he climbs on his friend's shoulder and he doesn't even feel it.
    Plus in the new movie... they take full sized vans and store them in a tiny container (which should be thousands of pounds, and yet normal people can hold it), and he literally shrunk a BUILDING down and was able to lift it.
    So basically, that was said in the movie... but it obviously doesn't actually apply for the majority of the movie (except for the beginning, when landing on that bathroom tile and car roof somehow cause them both to bend or break)

    I thought Ant-Man's density would go down as he grew. If he were to have the same mass at a size 100 times bigger, wouldn't he have 1/100 the density, rendering him weak and frail?

    There is a problem with your theory
    In your last video adout ant-manyou said that his mass doesn't change even if he shrinks or he gets bigger

    Ant man doesn’t gain mass, only surface area so he wouldn’t have super strength but he wouldn’t collapse

    Shouldn't the mass of Antman stay the same? Because the only thing that changes is the size of the Atoms

  • Shirokuma

    Okay so, I'm confused.
    At 6:49 there's talk about Ant-man's increasing size causes an increase in mass, but in the first video explaining the density of shrunken objects, as well as blown up objects, like the actual ant and Thomas the tank engine, he explained that they would be like balloons, just floating around, because of how the pym particles spread apart the atoms with the increased size. So, wouldn't the same logic follow through with Ant-man's increase in size? And also, because he becomes lighter, assuming that is how it works, wouldn't that actually weaken him in his ability to fight?
    Can someone @Matpat for me? I want answers!! Bring me the Spiderman!!

    Mass doesn't change. Density does. Big Ant-Man is essentially a balloon, which is precisely why he can't move very quickly.

    Wouldn’t he stay the same weight in the beginning of ant man hank said the space between the atoms changed not the mass the same thing when they were teaching him to fight they said he would punch with the force of an adult man but with a smallpox surface area so it would be like a bullet

    In MatPat’s previous theory on Antman, he said that all of Antman’s atoms would still be there but would only be denser as he got smaller. That would apply to when he gets bigger right? Antman would get less dense. That doesn’t mean he gets heavier at all.

    In the other antman episode matpat said that it’s the distance between the atoms that increase/decreases. So antman dosn’t gain/lose mass, but gains/loses density

    MatPat asked a question at 3:35. If u took a mouse and blow it up, wouldn’t it retain the same abilities that allow it to scamper around? My answer: No u idiot! Because u just exploded an innocent little rodent that was about to eat a little blade of grass until u interrupted it and now it’s DEAD!! disappointment.

    There's something troubling me. It is said that by getting smaller pym particles doesn't change your mass. Shouldn't this be happening also when you get bigger. It is supposed to only change your density. Which will have some weird effects when you gain 11 times your volume. Plus if your mass stays the same same but your strength changes with your size shouldn't antman be unable to move while small?

  • Alekzander Mazzaferro

    In the other video about Ant Man.... did you NOT say that his mass DOES NOT increase????? I'm sorry, but this confused me the whole episode XD

    A tesseract is not a 3D object. Just because the MCU named their cube tesseract it will not become one. The tesseract is a 4 dimensional object. If it is a 1x1x1x1 than it's surface are would be 20. We could say that the volume is 1 but it would only be 1 in our 3D.

    Do the cells stay the same because he would explode the moment he increases in size and if he shrinks he would die still because since the mitochondria produces enegry for that specific thing then if he increases in size his cell would be would be working at the same rate so if he grows he would be run at the same speed but the cells are working till the point where they are ober heating amd exploding

  • Alexander Stephenson

    According to dr.pym’s explanation of how the pym particle works, by increasing the space between the atoms or reducing it, he would actually weigh the same 171 pounds, and he would get the 121 strength modifier, he would be MORE agile when big and LESS agile when small. Unless I’m really bad at math, so feel free to correct me.
