G-Man recently reported some cool news: Giant-Man will be returning to the Marvel Universe in issue 7 of Avengers Academy, the problem is we don't know who will be behind the mask but I think I have an idea of who it might be...
Recap: The "Giant-Man" persona has been worn by Hank Pym. Bill Foster and Clint Barton have taken on a similar identity as Goliath. This was a title that Pym took on when he thought being small in the Avengers made him less important to the group...
Facts: From what we can tell on the promos Marvel released this Giant Man has blue eyes and is wearing a very similar costume as that from the original. Also there is November's Ant-Man and the Wasp #1 Solicit:
At first I thought that Marvel would make it more interesting in making Eric O' Grady take not only Ant-Man away from Hank Pym but also Giant Man, and I thought it made sense since Ant-Man is not mentioned in any of the Secret Avengers' solicits after the current story arc, but then I thought that whoever is behind the Giant Man mask has to be important to the story. If O' Grady was Giant Man then the big reveal would happen either in the Ant-Man and Wasp book or in the Secret Avengers book and since he's being revealed in the Avengers Academy book...
The Story: Two of Marvel's smallest heroes must join forces and get over one BIG elephant-in-the-room! Eric O'Grady once STOLE the Ant-Man suit from Hank Pym.

Hypothesis: Hank Pym is going back to being Giant Man... but! not indefinitely. I think he will end up going back to being Wasp, because as far as I can tell Pym's popularity grew as he took on the name of his deceased wife.
So do you all think it might be someone else? or do you agree with my hypothesis?
So the answer was not all that hard. Hank went back to his Giant Man mantle. The only thing that I got wrong with this Hypothesis is the fact that he will go back to Wasp. Since Janet might be coming back soon it's very unlikely Pym will go back to being Wasp.
