Explanation of the conversion:

A-Next #1 History: Casandra Lang is the daughter of Ant-Man II, Scott Lang. When Ant-Man II spent time as an employee of the Fantastic Four, Cassie lived with them and met Kristoff Vernard, heir to Doctor Doom.

Cassie became a scientist when she grew up. She and her father built the Stinger suit as an attempt to improve on the designs for the original Wasp and Ant-Man outfits designed by Henry Pym.

After confronting Loki, Stinger V joined up with several other new heroes in forming a new rouster of the Avengers. These included J2, Mainframe and Thunderstrike (A Next #1).

Stinger V was a member of the Avengers contingent that investigated the possible return of Doctor Doom to Latveria, only to discover it was actually her old love Kristoff Vernard (A Next #5).

When Spider-Girl tried out as a member of the Avengers, Spider-Girl was beaten by Stinger V in combat. Spider-Girl was made a reserve Avenger (Spider-Girl #13).

The Avengers were asked by Tony Stark to capture the hero known as the Buzz, thinking he was a thief and murderer, but he was assisted by Spider-Girl and Raptor who thought he was innocent (Spider-Girl #31).

Note: The first Stinger appeared in Marvel Super Heroes III #7. The second Stinger appeared in Avengers #179=180. The third Stinger was a mutant with electrical powers and member of the Alliance of Evil and was a fore of X-Factor. The second was a clone of Cassie's father created by the Master of the World who appeared in Heroes for Hire.

Powers: Initially Cassie had no super powers, but later she got synthetic wings implants, similar to those used by the Wasp. The stinger armor protects her from harm, acts as a flight suit, and launch a variety of attacks and allows her to shrink in size. The suit has an independent air supply and can even allow her to survive in the vacuum of space for a short time.
