    First thing that came to mind was Fantastic Four, but I'm not convinced it would be all that great just for being published. That concept is going to require someone who really understands the family dynamics at the core of what ever made that book work past the Silver Age.

    Journey Into Mystery (starring Sylvie Lushton)

    An Amora the Enchantress book (Special, Annual, Limited Series or an Ongoing explaining Amora´s past, present and future)

    A new Fantastic Four book (A total Priority, returning to the amazing journeys to the Unknown that were so classical with these characters, being a modern Homage to Lee and Kirby with Top Writers and Top Artists)

    1)Fantastic Four would be the first thing that pops into mind, while the traditional lineup would be amazing, even if Reed and Sue are off the table, they could have Johnny, Ben, She-Hulk and Crystal be a new version of the FF and still be honoring members from the past. Having a modern book where Ben and Johnny are fighting over leadership and dealing with Reed and Sue being gone would be a good read.

    2)Taskmaster, marvel could use more villain books and given the success that Deathstroke has enjoyed over at DC, a well written book on a character like taskmaster would be interesting for me, I know recent events in Captain America and All new Wolverine have not exactly shown him in the best light so a reinvention of him as a the top assassin in the Marvel Universe could be interesting. Obviously this book would need a good creative team and a real push from marvel to succeed but I think there would be some potential with taskmaster. Given how good the Bullseye book has been Ed Brisson would be a good fit for Taskmaster.

    3) Daughters of the Dragon or Heroes for Hire, with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing being well portrayed on Netflix, not sure how this actually has not been announced yet( unless I missed something) They have always been great characters but they are more popular than ever right now and I am surprised that marvel hasn't used them all that much. (Although misty might be tough to use given her use in Sam Wilson's book and in the new Black Panther and the crew book)

    4)Emma Frost- While many were not pleased with her new role/look after IVX, if Marvel really is going to make her the big bad of the X-men then a solo book would be a good way to build up the character and really bring out her motivations better, having emma be the stock upset grieving girlfriend that she was portrayed as in IVX was no good and a solo book could really help her character.

    5)Red-Hulks- If Banner is really off the table for now, a book with Betty and Thunderbolt Ross would be a good fill in. I really tried to like Amadeus Cho as hulk but after about 10 issues I just could not support the book any more ( the Jeremy Lin crossover issue was the nail in the coffin for me), so a more traditional hulk book would be nice to see. I know they were depowered during the Doc Green run but it could easily be explained for them to come back and it's not like marvel is real strict with continuity anyway.

    Invisible Woman - Should of been done years ago
    Elsa Bloodstone
    Storm - this time with a better direction and consistent art
    Fantastic Four/Future Foundation - With a writer who gets the family dynamic, but isn't afraid to do new things too
    Check out : The Invisible Woman Appreciation thread!

    I NEED a Invisible Woman solo! It's got to happen sometime right?......right?

    Unlikely. There's apparently some weird legal complications with the Ultraverse characters, which no one can talk about because of a non-disclosure agreement. So apparently, they're just not an option, even when Brevoort really wanted to do something with them.

    Magdalene Visaggio. I'm convinced she would blow readers away if she got to do Fantastic Four. Kim & Kim, for all it was crazy and ridiculous and weird, still showed the elements that are necessary for Fantastic Four. Second choice: Jen Van Meter. The Hopeless Savages series was all about family. And was also brilliant. (Vols. 2 and 4 are AMAZING. Vol. 2 had Bryan Lee O'Malley as the primary artist, and it was one of the best teen love stories you'll find. Vol. 4 had Meredith McClaren as the primary artist, and it was one of the best road trip stories you'll find. Read them!)

    Just . . . don't do what they did with her first solo. With the horrible cheesecake covers that in no way reflected the college drama the story actually was. Sweet hell, I have no idea what editorial was thinking there. The book's contents suggested a target audience of young women, while the covers were damned near softcore porn that would just turn women away. I do not get how anyone thought it was a good idea.

    Anyway, the only acceptable artist for an Emma Frost solo is Kris Anka. Obviously.

    I would honestly like to see a lot more of Spencer's John Walker, though I'm not sure whether it ought to be a solo or a team book. A Beast solo would be good too. Character needs to be redeemed and running back to the Avengers or only showing up for the next event won't do it.

    I would really like to ready that book

    Team book: X-Force, but I think the new Weapon X title will be a great substitute. After that I'd like more of the most recent Squadron Supreme. If I'm dreaming I want the JMS series back, off in it's own universe being awesome again.

    Solo: Sticking with the theme before, Nighthawk. This character has always been great to read for me. Super gritty and violent and you are never quite sure if Nighthawk is actually one of the good guys.
    Please bring back any Wolverine.

    Yeah, I'd very much enjoy any (or all ) of the following:

    Teams:
    The Aforementioned "Mighty Avengers" (using the Academy cadets -- or the Young Avengers crew -- or a combination of the two factions)
    Runaways
    X-Factor

    Solos:
    Illyana "Magik" Rasputin
    Namor
    Nico Minoru
    Billy "Wiccan" Kaplan
    Teddy "Hulkling/Dorrek" Altman
    "Um, blah, blah, blah. And, Girl Power. Feminism, d'you know what I mean?"
