Yeah Scott may have been the main character on paper, but the more I think on it the more I felt he was written as an incompetent.

I'd first argue that Scott Lang is probably the most likable character in all the MCU. Once he got his redemption, he has become a great Dad, is funny, caring, intuituve. He learned quickly in Ant-Man and fought well, could think on his feet and escaped harrowing situations. Even as the "new" guy, he held his own, and then some, in Civil War, granted he had the element of surprise work in his favor - twice.
Then comes AMatW and he gets his ass handed to him multiple times, got saddled with a faulty suit (for the slap stick laughs), and his one shining moment is as a diversion. It just felt like he was along for the ride and thats it. He never really got to shine as a super hero.
On the other hand, I really enjoyed Hank Pym's story arc and the introduction of Janet, so I walked away happy enough.
And I have a feeling AntMan is going to get great face time on Avengers 4.
