    - Limit the number of characters you are trying to promote at any given time. If a series isn't going to last 12 issues, it's not worth it to create an ongoing series. So instead of pissing off Black Widow fans for cancelling her title, fans will know going in that it's just a 6 issue story. There's probably over 200 regular characters in any given month that Marvel has appearing in their titles, and that's too many to keep track of let alone be interested in. Maybe instead of Valkyre in Secret Avengers, you give that spot to the Falcon who already is in Captain America.

I agree with this as a valid point.

I'd much rather see 2-3 well crafted minis per year, featuring good characters, by top notch creators, than ongoing books that are run into the ground when "name" creators leave
