 Comics versions:

Yellow Jacket - Hank Pym :
Yellow Jacket is a persona used by the first Ant-Man, Hank Pym.  Hank goes through a variety of mantles including; Ant-Man, Goliath, Giant Man, and Yellow Jacket.   Hank goes through a period of becoming large using the Goliath and Giant Man mantles but finds that growing large takes a great toll on his body.  He decides he should start shrinking again.  To maintain his crime fighting career Hank begins using the Yellow Jacket persona.

The period where Hank uses the Yellow Jacket persona is generally the period where he begins to mentally crumble, he gets married (under bizarre circumstances), grows increasingly depressed and begins abusing his wife and is later kicked out of the Avengers and divorced.

Yellow Jacket - Rita DeMara:


Rita DeMara is a small time criminal when she manages to steal Hank Pym's old Yellow Jacket suit.  She is captured by Janet Van Dyne the Wasp.  When DeMara used the suit to shrink in size she was not mentally prepared for the mass change and she became distraught making her capture by Janet an easy task.

She later escapes with a group of other Super Villains and joins the Masters of Evil under the control of Baron Zemo.  In this group she masters use of the suit.  She eventually turns over a new leaf and briefly serves on the Avengers before joining the future version of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
