Since learning of Dixon's firing over at DC, me and my buddy started thinking of perfect books he could write for Marvel, and guess what, there's not that many to choose from.

We narrowed it down to a few.

1. Hawkeye (ongoing)

2. Gambit (Ongoing)

3. Black Panther (Ongoing)- I know that there's a new book running, but i think he would suit the title perfectly.

4. Iron Man ( Ongoing)- Same comment above

5. Wolverine ( Ongoing)- Way to many Wolverine books, but same comment above.

6. Thunderbolts (ongoing)

7. Moon Night (ongoing)- Same as above.

Anyone else think of any other books he could write?

Thoughts?

We do not know that he was fired. All that he has said is that "I did not quit".

There are many variations of leaving beyond quitting and firing, and until Mr Dixon or DC see's fit to comment on what is essentially a private matter, I'd suggest that we don't speculate on the circumstances of his leaving.

I'll play. Though in general it seems you are trying to stick him to a certain genre (anti-hero).

I would either put him on something that is low selling, or a new title with B-list character. Basically just let him do his own thing for a while without interference, to see how he holds up. I've only read a few titles by him, but I think his two strengths are character interaction and characterizations.

Those all just seem to be really bad fits to me.

Too popular of a character.

> 6. Thunderbolts (ongoing)

Possible fit, but I don't think he would do to sell with the premise. The Thunderbolts are characters you have to mostly hate, and his characters are just too likable.

> 7. Moon Night (ongoing)- Same as above.

Possible. It does need some direction, but it seems a little too dark for him. I know he did the Punisher though.

> Anyone else think of any other books he could write?

New Title: SHIELD team, possibly with Nick Fury, about a team of B-list Avengers with a proactive theme. Hawkeye, Black Widow, Falcon, Mockingbird, USAgent, Spider-Woman II, etc could all be possible members. And most of those lack any real characterizations, so he could easily fill those in.

Low Selling title: Ms. Marvel could also be a good title for him. He has written female characters pretty well in the past (Spoiler, Birds of Prey, Batgirl, etc).

Low Selling title: She-Hulk, for mostly the same reason. He would also be able to do a light-hearted series here, like he did with Nightwing, Robin, and other assorted runs.

For some other options, you have Iron Fist, generic female mercenary (Elektra, Silver Sable, etc), Alpha Flight, and a light hearted Defenders.

No. I've never really enjoyed Hawkeye solos. I think he's tailor made for group membership.

Only if it's called Gambit: The End or Death of Gambit!

Budgect cuts mean I no longer follow Hudlin's book but he's doing so good I'd hate to see him canned, especially to give the book to someone else who was canned!

> 4. Iron Man ( Ongoing)- Same comment above

Yes. Iron Man, Director of SHIELD would be perfect for Dixon's talents!

Can you imagine a Wolverine book that was routinely readable rather than occasionally?

I'd put Fabian back there as an apology for taking his book away to give it to someone allegedly cooler...

Meh. Not even Dixon could get this book past another eighteen months...

> Anyone else think of any other books he could write?

He could take over Ultimate X-Men. Maybe part of why it's so boring and stuck in retreads of 616 stories is that none of the writers used have a non-X-Men thing about their writing style. It could take a Chuck Dixon to really make this book pop as different from the 616 counterparts!

Yes as long as he doesn't transform Clint into a replica of Oliver. Mockingbird has to appear too.

No way! Don't like the character and never have!

As long as Storm is still part of the equation, I don't mind

>
> 4. Iron Man ( Ongoing)- Same comment above

I like what Faction is doing on Invicible. However, maybe Chuck can bring me back to the hohum Director of Shield book

>

Not a real fan of Wolverine anymore. I just pick up the TPBs that I find interesting

>
> 6. Thunderbolts (ongoing)

Now that is a title that needs an overhaul.

He already wrote the character in 89 and the early 90's if I recall. Can't see him going back.

If Brubaker decides to leave, maybe Captain America.

Director of SHIELD would seem a good fit.

Also, if Tony leaves SHIELD by the end of Secret Invasion then I would suggest Dixon either for a Nick Fury comic or - more interesting to me, frankly - a Maria Hill comic.


>

Chuck Dixon is pretty much the only writer who could get me to sample a Wolverine comic again. But I would want him to write the Wolverine comic that he personally wants to write, which I suspect would be a spiritual sibling to the Madripoor era, my hands down favorite.

Hulk. If I were the editor, I'd hand Chuck Dixon a picture of the Hulk smoking a cigar and ask him to free associate a proposal from that picture.

Super-Skrull.

Ronan the Accuser.

Agent Brand: Director of SWORD. But I want Deems to be in it. I think Chuck Dixon would find the autism trait an intersting one to write.

The fact that the Punisher has no regular individual writer ready after Ennis and Chuck Dixon's got free time is a message. \:\)

I'd personally love to see him do a War Machine title.

War Machine is a good candidate.
