The Ant-Man costume was first worn by Hank Pym. In his first appearance in the comics, Hank Pym is a scientist who discovered subatomic particles, which everyone knows as Pym particles.

Thanks to a serum, he manages to become the size of an ant. In the comics, his first experiment goes wrong as he gets trapped in an ant farm. After escaping and regaining his normal size, the scientist decides to get rid of the two serums as he feels they are too dangerous. He later becomes Ant-Man and reveals his secret to Janet Van Dyne, who becomes The Wasp.

In the comics, we learn that Pym will give up the Ant-Man suit because of the effects of the shrinking gas on his brain.

In the films :

He is a reformed thief who was convinced (or tricked) by Hank Pym to be the new Ant-Man. After committing a robbery at Hank Pym‘s house, Hank Pym convinces him to keep the suit for good use.

Scott trains with Hank Pym and his daughter Hope Van Dyne to master this new suit, but also learns to communicate with ants. The goal of all this is to steal the Yellowjacket armour from Darren Cross, which was created for an army of soldiers. This armour is similar to that of Ant-Man. The fight with Falcon on the roof of the Avengers HQ brings him to the attention of the superheroes. This led to several appearances of Ant-Man in the films.
