If only you'd protected Janet with such ferocity, Dr. Pym.
~ Carson trying to justify of stealing Pym's particles.

Mitchell Carson is the secondary antagonist of the 2015 blockbuster superhero film Ant-Man. He is the Head of Defense for S.H.I.E.L.D - later revealed to be a representative of HYDRA.

He is portrayed by Martin Donovan, who also plays Time Master Druce in the TV series DC's Legends of Tomorrow.

Role

In 1989, during the construction of the Triskelion, Carson, with Howard Stark and Peggy Carter, attempted to replicate Hank Pym's Pym Particles, much to the anger of Pym, who berates Carson for trying to steal his work. During the argument, Carson implies that Pym is responsible for the death of his wife Janet van Dyne, but this only provokes an angry Pym to hit Carson in the face for it. Pym then resigns from S.H.I.E.L.D., taking his particles away with it, much to Carson's anger.

Eventually, Carson's true allegiance with HYDRA was exposed following the death of Alexander Pierce, but he hid himself away from being tracked down by the authorities. In 2015, Carson made a business deal with Pym Technologies CEO Darren Cross regarding the marketing of the Yellowjacket Suit and the Pym particle for HYDRA. As part of their deal, Carson was assigned to murder Pym, a task he willingly accepted.

At the presentation for the Yellowjacket, Cross secretly plans to sell the suit and the Pym particles to Carson and his arriving agents (including the HYDRA Buyer). However, this is interrupted by Scott Lang and Hope von Dyne, who was present during the presentation. During the resulting chaos, Carson's agents were take down while Carson manages to escape with Cross' replicated particles (despite being besieged by ants).

It is unknown what happened to Carson following Cross' death.
