I think having new characters could be great too, but I'm tired of every character having to be a derivative of classic characters, yet they are "superior" to their original counterparts.... These characters haven't earned the greatness that is supposedly being bestowed upon them. 

I could not possibly agree more.  MARVEL did try too hard.  It reminds me of almost any commercial or TV show I see nowadays with kids or teens in them.  You MUST have a black kid, an Asian kid, a Spanish kid, an Indian kid and I think there's a rule that there must be more females than males.

With all these 'replacements', it's almost like MARVEL was apologizing for decades of white males being front and center.

All of you guys hit on several fantastic points.  If you have event after event after event, then 'events' stop being meaningful.  If you have Christmas every single month, then December 25th isn't going to be that big of a deal.
 
CHOOCH, you really nailed it when you said that DC actually has you willingly spending money to buy their books, and are trying bring back long time readers.  I honestly think MARVEL is aiming most of their canons at Movie Goers and I-Just-Got-Into-Comics-a-Few-Years-Ago-Because-of-the-Movies types.
