The Ant has no super human powers however; he is an extremely skilled athlete.
Although coming from a good family, Whit and his younger brother were left orphans at an early age, and with no real job skills to speak of, Eddie turned to theft as a way of making ends meet. He was ultimately arrested, but once his circumstances were learned, he was given the option of being sent to a special facility in upstate New York called Lacklock, where teens who had gotten into trouble with the law…but were essentially good kids at heart…could work off their debt to society in an environment that was more summer camp than prison.
Upon his release from Lacklock, Whit was able to secure a job, and make enough money to support himself and his brother…not all that well, but honestly. However, his new employer was himself a crook, and when he learned of Whit's former convictions, he blackmailed the teen into committing new crimes on his behalf. To disguise himself from the police, Whit was told to wear the colourful costume of the Ant and use his athletic skills to help him in his new crimes.
