Ghost was a baseline human in the comics who got his powers from the suit. The MCU version is an enhanced human who got her powers from an accident; the suit helps her manage them. Janet van Dyne is a complex example of the trope. In the comics she is a baseline human who later got additional abilities to shoot bio-energy blasts, but here is a baseline human who derives her powers from the suit. Initially, at least. Her time in the Quantum Realm has given her additional powers that she cited as being "evolution". See more »
When Hank Pym is travelling into the Quantum Realm, his vehicle temporarily pauses at the microscopic level to get its bearings. He is surrounded (and nearly eaten) by floating tardigrades, a very resilient microscopic creature. Tardigrades natural habitat is in water, yet there is no indication that he has traveled into water. See more »

SPOILER: There is a scene in the closing credits: while Scott is in the Quantum Realm, the Pym family gets erased (due to Thanos's efforts in Avengers: Infinity War (2018)), leaving him trapped. This leads into Avengers: Endgame (2019).
Following this, there is a statement at the end of the closing credits: "Ant-Man and the Wasp will return?". See more »
Ant-Man and Wasp was a fun movie. Whereas I didn't see it strongly bolstering the MCU, it didn't harm the MCU at all. I like that they gave Ant-Man a partner (I dare not say sidekick) with similar, yet better abilities.
Now, as for what I wish would've been different/better: the nemesis, Ghost. Ghost has some excellent skills and abilities which I think they (the production team) could've/should've explored more. I mean, the ability to phase in and out almost at will thereby giving the person the ability to pass through solid matter (kinda like Kitty Pride of the X-Men)--that makes for some spectacular fight scenes and other mischief. I'm imagining a fight similar to the opening scene of X-Men 2 when Nightcrawler infiltrated the White House. I know that phasing in and out is different than teleporting but in tight quarters they can be used similarly.
That was my only gripe, which was a small one. Besides wanting more from the bad guy I thought the movie was funny and creative.
