Literary Critique of Appendages (antennae) 

Antennae come in a magic version and a scientific version.  Then scientific version suggests that character has some insect connection.  The magic version suggests the character is some sort of fairy or other magic creature.  Hank Pym (Marvel) has antennae both as Ant Man and Giant Man. As Ant Man the antennae allow him to control ants which makes no sense since ants communicate via pheromones and not electronic signals received by their antennae.

Hank Pym decides to implant antennae into his girlfriend and later abused wife Jane Pym. I don’t know a lot of gals that would want creepy insect like antennae inserted into their foreheads and why doesn’t Henry Pym implant antennae into his own forehead?
