In a world of instant love or hatred, fans seemed to instantly take to the new design, with the response coming in waves from Twitter; with most fans sharing their love for the new design and the character’s fresh new take.
There's so much I love about this. Has shades of Kamen Rider, Radiant Black and a bit of Tom Whalen's aesthetic yet also feels wholly fresh and yet instantly recognisable as Ant-Man.

The sleek black and red design make beautiful use of minimalistic ideas, and seems to be slightly inspired by Kamen Riders; a Japanese superhero whose design was crafted to mimic various insects.
The inspiration is fitting and we cannot wait to see how Reilly and Ewing utilize this new design to bring us the brand new Ant-Man of the future!
Tom, this rules so hard. Congrats, man! Can't wait to read this.
