It's an early story. You gotta cut Stan/Larry some slack on these early stories. You gotta love the catapult...haha. 

I really enjoyed the "I am not human" story. 50 years later and the concepts that Stan was trying to get us to see STILL hold today. What a visionary Stan was!

So let's see...theft, use of biological weapons (germs), evading arrest...nope, not the villain of this story, but Ant-Man is guilty of all this! Also, he kinda left a lot of the ending depending on luck (how did he know, his voice will give out at that moment? A few moments sooner or later, and Ant-Man would still or again be hated by the public! Why did the public turn on him so quickly? Sure, I get that he needed his booming voice to hypnotize, but the public wouldn't forget why they wanted him to speak in the first place, and probablywould show some concern. And last but not least: Why are both Ant-Man and Cragg sure, his voice wouldn't be hypnotic anymore, once it comes back?).

Nevertheless: One of the better Ant-Man-Stories, a dangerous villain, the need to think outside the box, and all sides are shown to act intelligent for the most part. Under different circumstances Cragg would have been a fine recurring villain.
