You may get your answer at some point in the current issues of Secret Six. Bane brings her onto his version of the team along with Dwarfstar, the guy who hired Deathstroke's Titans to kill Choi in the first place.  She did mention that she was dating him in a recent issue, causing Dwarfstar a bit of surprise....

 

Me, the way I see it, she should be something along the lines of a "darker shade of grey".  Take, for example, this: in a fanfic story I'm working on, she and the Enchantress (the Thor villainess) end up fighting Stature and Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) in the middle of a shopping mall.  The two manage to convince her that Amora is only using her, prompting her to throw the Enchantress into the central fountain. She also manages to get away.

I'm reading some issues I found... and I want to kind of say she already is a hero? Take into her account her recent encounter with Wonder Woman. She was in costume, yes. She was fighting, yes. But she called "time out" to explain herself to Wonder Woman (which if you want to get technical... is responsible for most of the failed turns... ANYWAY) In the end she started to actually fight alongside Wonder Woman. Which begs to ask... maybe she's already realizing she doesn't want her face beaten in by Wonder Woman every now and again. (Then again, I'm lost to the chronology of events among her appearances. Can anyone shed some light on this one?) 
 
If Atom is dead, maybe Giganta could do what she did in the JLU visit and try to do something to get Wonder Woman's attention... and then talk to her. Say that she wants to fulfill a promise she was willing to make with Atom. Then again, from what I'm also hearing Wonder Woman really has a short tempter. So maybe not this approach.

 It would be a bit interesting.....especially if it ties back to the finale episode of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED, where she and other villains team-up with the League against Darksied's forces....and kisses Flash/Wally for a brief moment....

Giganta is is a pretty cool concept. I think she could definetly fit in that villain looking for redemption trying to prove herself arc. Plus she'd kind of funny, maybe Amanda Waller puts her on Suicide Squad or as an undercover agent for one of the super heroes like Black Lightning.

I loved to see her and the new boyscout atom! Best couple FTW. She would be a great not as your tipical superheroine, but as some sort of anti-heroine. We know she cares about good things like teaching kids, and the wellbeing of little animals... maybe she and Poison Ivy could team up and make a ECO FRIENDLIY TASK FORCE to keep the big corporations in their place. Maybe working in the grey area, fighting things most heroes aren't confortable fighting, and defending things villans just don't care about

I wanna see her as a hero rather than a villain any day of the week.

Giganta as an hero? [or simply in her own book]

YES, that is a DC Book that I will buy! [No joking!]
