    Without character-driven titles, there will be no more comics... at all. Characters are what drive all fiction.

This is so true. I forget who they are, but there was some wolf pack group of famous writers and one of them said that characters are the most important cause they're the ones that people relate to. I take it a step further and say that people don't randomly pick comics to see SOMEBODY fight SOME villian or one of the other finite scenarios that get recycled, they specifically pick up Spider-man comics to see Spider-man fight Venom or the Lizard. The joy of stories is seeing how Captain America would deal with a alien scenario as opposed to Ironman's reaction in which case the character is still more important.

This is something Marvel doesn't seem to get which is why, IMO, the events and Bendis stuff never really lives up to the hype.
