December is usually a time for friends and family to come together drink hot chocolate and celebrate the holiday season.

However, the House of Ideas’ greatest characters will be celebrating the holidays by welcoming back long-lost heroes and titles as 2017 comes to a close. GEEKS has the inside scope on the storylines that True Believers should keep an eye and perhaps request these stories for their stocking stuffers.

The original X-Woman is back! After her departure from this plane in the conclusion of 2005’s X-Men: Phoenix Endsong, Jean Grey is back! The fiery redhead will make her reappearance for the first time in 12 years. How will the X-Men react to her return? What does Jean’s return mean for her time displaced counterpart?

Writer Chip Zdarsky and artist Jim Cheung will share that secret with fans on December 13.

'Tales of Suspense' turns 100

Marvel Comics has resurrected one of its signature titles: Tales of Suspense. The title’s first volume ran from 1959 to 1968 until Captain America took over the title in April 1968. Now, the House of Ideas has tasked the creative team of writer Matthew Rosenberg, artist Travel Foreman, and cover artist Marco Checchetto to bring the classic title to modern day. Their first story arc will focus on the loves of the late Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff) — Hawkeye and the Winter Soldier.
