    Default Giant Size X-Men 2021–Which 5 Mutants Should Get Their Own?


    If Marvel and Hickman continue to give us 5 Giant Size X-Men volumes a year, what are the 5 you’d like to see next year, and why? Like the Jean and Emma GS, you can have one GS that focuses on 2 characters. Which artists would you like to see on them? All written by Hickman, or another writer of your choice? I’d like to see who everyone else wants to see, and why.

    I'm going to go with the following and add some plots I'd like to see for fun:
    • Giant Size Penance: a story about Monet, Marius and the M Twins explaining how and why Monet decided to add the Penance form to her mutant powers and exploring the past of the St.Croix family and their ties with magic and stuff (Hickman would do wonders tying all the lost subplots around Marius and the twins together). Monet has actually had a lot of interesting interactions with a lot of characters during the years, so it could have a lot of supporting appearances, from Gen-Xers such as Synch and Jubilee, to Madrox and Syrin to Rachel and Betsy.
    • Giant Size Captain Britain: I want to see a standalone story with Betsy as Captain Britain written by Hickman with a lot of Avalon myths. He gave glimpses of his knowledge of the Corps and such in Time Runs Out, so I want to see him doing something with Betsy now. This could also be called Giant Size Psylocke and have Betsy and Kwannon work together/form a bond (I don't like that they don't like each other, it's kinda of a cheap choice). Or just use Betsy to lead the Corps on a standlone mission in the multiverse as a Captain Britain would.
    • Giant Size Archangel: about Warren and his relationship with Apocalypse and the Death Seed, especially now that he can actually go and interact with Apocalypse. This could help reintroduce/talk more about some of the original Horsemen (but I think we'll start seeing them in X of Swords anyways) with some flashbacks, and also explore Tabula Rasa, since that sounds like the place for them to put an habitat in, before it eventually blows up into something bad.
    • Giant Size Gorgon: show me how they recruited him and Gorgon doing some dirty work in Madripoor or getting his hands dirty with Hydra or the Hand. Hickman writes an exceptional Gorgon and he was a great villain that I'm glad he turned into a X-Universe character (he was a Wolverine antagonist but he was more in the Hand/Hydra/Shield stuff). The Madripoor and Japan ties could also work great with some of the current Marauders stories and add some layers to them.
    • Giant Size Sunspot: a Guardians of the Galaxy style story in space with Sunspot, Cannonball and Deathbird and how Sunspot will (possibly) get on the Shi'Ar throne instead of Xavier's daughter (if he will lol but it looks like we might get to that). Add in some old stuff from his Avengers run to tie it all together, like AIM and the Zebra kids as allies because they were interesting stuff.

    Hickman on all of them. Artist I assumed would rotate.

    Emma is a Hickman favorite and would like to see a solo story with her.

    Iceman is a personal favorite and want to see Hickman's take on the character, as well as him outside of Marauders (which is hopefully still running in 2021).

    Daken and Quentin I think are more both major characters of the previous era and would like to see Hickman's take on them. Using these characters as opposed to Colossus or Rogue or Gambit who have thousands of stories seem more interesting.

    Bishop still needs to be cleaned up to me from Messiah Complex and he is one of Hickman's generals.

    Cannonball and Sunspot really seem to be Hickman's favorite characters. He writes their bromance well. I want more!

    Why those 5? I want to see some thought processes on why you’d like to see these books, and why these creative teams.

    Giant Size: Betsy Braddock (Hickman/Duaterman) I was always intrigued that Hickman used her and the Captain Britain Corps during his a Avengers run and cameos in Secret Wars. I would love to see what he would do with her. I think him writing her would definitely elevate her.

    Giant Size: Rogue (Hickman/ Clay Mann) Honestly this one is because I just want to see Hickmans take on her.

    Giant Size: New X-Men (Mike Carey/RB Silva) This is the generation that got hit the hardest with mutant hate. I'd like them to be focused on for one issue because they are now in an era where generations that come after them are going to experience life differently. I want them to delve into the characters feelings about this big shift.

    Giant Size: Exodus (Hickman/Jerome Opena) I loved that scene of him telling stories to the young mutants. I would love to see more focus on him in the Krakoa era. And I think Hickman would write him really well.

    Giant Size: Polaris (Hickman/Olivier Coipel) I just want her to be a perspective on the mutant nation. Bring up the Genosha/Krokoa similarities and get insider her headspace some more.

    I'd love a GS Polaris building off of the sentiments Hickman introduced in X-Men #1..her role on Krakoa as Magneto's daughter is really interesting to me and coupled with whatever Leah has planned for her in X-Factor this could be a big story...might not be technically necessary depending on what happens in all the books that aren't out yet though lol

    Captain Britain (Betsy Obvs) needs a GS issue and I'll gladly die on this hill. Something spinning straight out of X of Swords and delving deep into what her new title really means to her. I want showstopping art, mythical hijinks, psychological probing...the ultimate character piece

    I want a real GS Nightcrawler but idk who to actually give the title to seeing as he already got one ... but anyways this would ideally explore the "krakoan religion" stuff . We know Hickman can write a bomb ass Kurt so lets see it

    GS Sage would be an absolute serve and I didn't think of it until people suggest it here! what's wrong with me! The truly underrated queen of Krakoa keeping everything up and running...I wanna see what her life's like when no one's watching. Is it an espionage-tinted noir, is it a beguiling comedy? I don't know but I should. I see this book as having a supporting cast of the criminally underused: Cecilia, Shatterstar, etc..

    I think the problem I've had with the Giant Size issues we've gotten so far is that they primarily serve as set-up for plot points instead of giving us character-focused stories . Neither of them have been bad by a stretch it just feels a bit like a missed opportunity. I love that artists are given almost absolute free reign over the plots..seems like a fantastic opportunity for experimentation

    GS Bishop: A story dealing with Bishop investigating imprisoned mutants have Kid Cable and Hope along for the ride for pure awkwardness.

    GS Avalanche: A typical night of dealing with drunken mutants while tending bar at the Green Lagoon tiki lounge.

    GS Domino: Domino decides to take a girls weekend off to Vegas but gets interrupted by the cruel and tragic shenanigans of Deadpool.

    GS X-23: I see you could do this story one of two ways do a story prior to her venturing into the vault or do a "Tales from the Vault" story having her trying to survive.

    GS Hellion: "Fight Night" A special crucible fight is set up which gives Hellion the opportunity to get his hands back. Defeat Exodus and they'll use the Rez Protocols to bring him back whole...lose and he's excluded from the Rez Protocols forever.
    Captain, in Order to build a better world, sometimes means tearing the old one down... And that makes enemies.

    Giant Size: Penance - Monet visiting Marius where he and Selene monitor how Krakoa leeches life force energy from its mutant inhabitants, there's something wrong with the process and Monet is in charge of investigating because as Penance she is more resistant. It turns out to be Threnody, who unlike Selene or Empath craves death to sate her powers. Threnody is defeated and she says it doesn't matter because she can sense a great deal of death on the horizon.

    Giant Size: Omega Sentinel - Karima doesn't actually work for Orchis, she has no real authority in their command structure and has criticized a lot of their choices as panic fueled. I want her to see her investigate some of the Orchis bases on Earth that the X-men dismantled, running into Neal Shaara in Mumbai and they work together to stop an Orchis project from causing a major disaster. Issue ends revealing that there are a lot of Omega Sentinel sleeper agents waiting to be activated.

    Giant Size: Silver Samurai - Keniuchio Harada has been dead for a while, and since then his son has become a spoiled billionaire tech mogul. So he sets out to teach the brat a lesson and learns that he's been working with Homines Verendi to undercut Mutant businesses. Along the way Mariko and Sunfire get involved because they're annoyed by Shingen as well.

    Giant Size: Beast - A day in the life of the X-Club issue, all of the everyday emergencies that Beast manages. Sage has to deal with someone who gets drunk and walks through the wrong portal and winds up on Mars. Trinary and Cypher have to fend off a malware attack because someone (recently resurrected) downloaded porn on a secure server. A check-in with Dr. Nemesis and Kavita Rao who are acting on Krakoa's behalf in different organizations.

    Giant Size: Mirage and Siryn - Dani and Terry sense an upcoming disaster, the specter of death is on Krakoa. They may not be goddesses anymore but they can still feel it.

    Oh dude this actually sounds REALLY good. Kudos if before she dies, if she's about to, she gets taken to the Age of X-Man.

    Exodus and Penance/Monet would be great too.

    Giant Size Penance for sure -- and I absolutely love this pitch. It just seems like the beginning of a great cast for Monet specifically.

    Giant Size Multiple Man -- I have to imagine Hickman can come up with some interesting stuff for Madrox to do, especially with all the character/power building PAD has already established

    Giant Size Legion -- WHERE IS HE?!?! RESCUING RUTH FROM THE AFTERLIFE NO DOUBT

    Giant Size Shortpack -- the title itself is worth it, but I seriously liked Shortpack and want him back in a major way

    Giant Size Shatterstar -- would Hickman build on the recent mini? maybe include Longshot too, but I'd rather get more Spiral at this point (thanks to Humphries)

    Giant Size Bishop -- PLEASE HICKMAN BRING BACK THE CHRONOMANCER DYSTOPIA I MISS NOM AND THE KITH
