> 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.

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.

> 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.

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

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

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