Description: Since even small ants can be dangerous, a nest of mutants the size of a car can be a real incident. The largest Giant Ants encountered as of yet were in New Mexico (USA). This infestation was suppressed with flame throwers and machine guns. These insects are excellent burrowers and live underground, leaving their nest to forage for food.

Description: In the Florida (USA) swamps years later another Giant Ant nest was encountered. These mutated insects were smaller, but just as deadly as their predecessors. The army was ruled by a queen of exceptional ability, a master of chemical control through pheromones; she could even enthrall humans as drones to feed and protect her colony.

Description: Turned into something about the size of a dog by Ant-Man during his battle with Yellowjacket, this critter took to the family quickly, and is surely not waiting for them to fall asleep so that she can lay eggs in them.
