Diggle has fun with Ant-Man

Last week the guys at Newsarama.com got did a Q&A with Andy Diggle, the new Thunderbolts writer, and asked if Diggle has any favorites.

NRAMA: OK, then which new team member has been the most fun to write?
AD: Of the new guys, it has to be Eric O'Grady, a.k.a. Ant-Man. Robert Kirkman and Phil Hester created such a great character there; even when he's being such an unbelievably self-serving little sleazebag, somehow you still can't help but root for the guy. Plus he's funny as hell. Fans of The Losers will know what I mean when I say he's the Jensen of the team.
Let's hope that means a lot of attention to our pym particle powered protagonist. Also, I can't help but speculate what will happen when Eric O'Grady crosses paths with Wade Wilson in the upcoming Thunderbolts/Deadpool crossover arc.
