    Here are the Giant Rules from the HeroClix rules:

    A character with the giant damage symbol is a giant character. Giant characters loom over the battlefield, and they have a much longer reach than other characters do.

    A giant character is adjacent to standard characters (those with the damage
    symbol), colossal characters, and other giant characters when those characters are up
    to 2 squares away for movement and close combat attack purposes, regardless of the
    other characters’ elevation or flight mode (as shown in Figure 25), but an elevated giant
    character is not adjacent to a grounded standard character.

    Standard and colossal characters
    are adjacent to giant characters up to 2
    squares away for movement purposes
    but not for close combat attack purposes.
    A standard or colossal character must be
    within 1 square of a giant character to
    make a close combat attack against it.
    Characters 2 squares away from a giant
    character are not considered adjacent for
    ranged combat purposes.

    To determine if a character 2 squares
    away has become adjacent to a giant
    character, use a straight edge or draw
    an imaginary line from the center of the
    giant character’s square to the center of
    the target’s square. If the line crosses
    blocking terrain and the target is grounded
    or elevated, then the characters are not
    adjacent, or if the line crosses elevated
    terrain and both characters are grounded,
    then the characters are not adjacent.
    Otherwise the characters are adjacent.
    Giant characters ignore hindering,
    elevated, and outdoor blocking terrain
    on movement. Giant characters can’t
    be moved by Telekinesis, and they
    ignore other characters’ Force Blast and
    Plasticity.

    Standard characters do not block
    line of fire to or from a giant character.
    Colossal characters and giant characters
    block line of fire to or from a giant
    character. Hindering terrain, blocking
    terrain, and elevated terrain affect line
    of fire to a giant character as normal. A
    grounded giant character and a grounded
    character draw line of fire and make ranged combat attacks against each other as if they
    were both grounded.

    A giant character and a character on elevated terrain draw line of
    fire and make ranged combat attacks against each other as if they were both elevated. A
    giant character and a soaring character draw lines of fire and attack each other as if they
    were both soaring and using their full range values.

    Thanks for the info, I'm also curious though, aren't there some type of special damage rules for giant and/or colosal characters? If anyone could fill me in, I've been unable to simply google up and answer. thanks
