Gigantus - News:


A comic book writer, Charles Bentley is typing up a script for a new monster story on a type writer.  The type writer he working on happens to have a magical enchantment on it that can bring to life anything written on it.  Charles is utterly terrified when he realizes the monster X, he was writing about actually came alive.  He breaks the type writer which seemingly destroys X.

Alpha Flight / Big Hero Six
In Japan, X goes on a rampage in an amusement park called Cool World.  This is the head quarters for the super hero team Big Hero Six.  X's sudden appearance in Japan after seemingly being destroyed is when they find a child with a comic that seemed to foretell X's actions.  Big Hero Six recieves assistance from Alpha Flight to battle X.   They use the comic story to lure X to Mount Fuji where they seal him.

X has not appeared since being sealed in Mount Fuji, however he may appear in the upcoming Marvel event Monsters Unleashed.  He does tend to seem more like a magical character.

  • Super Strong - Not sure how strong relative to other monsters or heroes but was shown to have strength far surpassing a normal human.
  • Super Durable - 
  • Can change shape and seemingly mass
  • Can seemingly appear magically from mystic items like a comicbook / type writer.  His existence seems tied to these items.  Once the items are destroyed he seems to be destroyed as well.
