Y is for Yellowjacket
Am I a huge Yellowjacket fan ? Eh, not really. But there aren’t a lot of superheroes whose names begin with "Y", so he was pretty much my first pick. I remember this great story in Avengers #217 where Yellowjacket, who had been kicked off the team and was down on his luck, was tricked by a super-villain into fighting his former teammates in order to save a young girl. Written by Jim Shooter with art by Bob Hall, it was a really good comic. Also, points go to Yellowjacket for being the superhero formerly known as Giant-Man, another favorite of mine. There ya go.
