Hobbes: How will these be so rare and valuable if every kid in America has five copies?
Calvin: We're all counting on the other guys' moms to throw them away.

First thing that came to mind was Fantastic Four, but I'm not convinced it would be all that great just for being published. That concept is going to require someone who really understands the family dynamics at the core of what ever made that book work past the Silver Age.
Journey Into Mystery (starring Sylvie Lushton)
An Amora the Enchantress book (Special, Annual, Limited Series or an Ongoing explaining Amora´s past, present and future)
A new Fantastic Four book (A total Priority, returning to the amazing journeys to the Unknown that were so classical with these characters, being a modern Homage to Lee and Kirby with Top Writers and Top Artists)
1)Fantastic Four would be the first thing that pops into mind, while the traditional lineup would be amazing, even if Reed and Sue are off the table, they could have Johnny, Ben, She-Hulk and Crystal be a new version of the FF and still be honoring members from the past. Having a modern book where Ben and Johnny are fighting over leadership and dealing with Reed and Sue being gone would be a good read.
2)Taskmaster, marvel could use more villain books and given the success that Deathstroke has enjoyed over at DC, a well written book on a character like taskmaster would be interesting for me, I know recent events in Captain America and All new Wolverine have not exactly shown him in the best light so a reinvention of him as a the top assassin in the Marvel Universe could be interesting. Obviously this book would need a good creative team and a real push from marvel to succeed but I think there would be some potential with taskmaster. Given how good the Bullseye book has been Ed Brisson would be a good fit for Taskmaster.
3) Daughters of the Dragon or Heroes for Hire, with Misty Knight and Colleen Wing being well portrayed on Netflix, not sure how this actually has not been announced yet( unless I missed something) They have always been great characters but they are more popular than ever right now and I am surprised that marvel hasn't used them all that much. (Although misty might be tough to use given her use in Sam Wilson's book and in the new Black Panther and the crew book)
4)Emma Frost- While many were not pleased with her new role/look after IVX, if Marvel really is going to make her the big bad of the X-men then a solo book would be a good way to build up the character and really bring out her motivations better, having emma be the stock upset grieving girlfriend that she was portrayed as in IVX was no good and a solo book could really help her character.
5)Red-Hulks- If Banner is really off the table for now, a book with Betty and Thunderbolt Ross would be a good fill in. I really tried to like Amadeus Cho as hulk but after about 10 issues I just could not support the book any more ( the Jeremy Lin crossover issue was the nail in the coffin for me), so a more traditional hulk book would be nice to see. I know they were depowered during the Doc Green run but it could easily be explained for them to come back and it's not like marvel is real strict with continuity anyway.

DC-Mr. Miracle, Big Barda, Batman, Green Arrow, Black Canary, Superman, Wonder Woman, Cyborg, Flash(Barry), Deathstroke
Marvel- Thor (Odinson), Wolverine(Logan), Storm, Daredevil, Elektra, Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, She-Hulk, Spider-Man (Peter), Vision
We need a kitty pryde solo series and a medusa solo series both long overdue for a ongoing solo series.
Off to C2E2!
Invisible Woman - Should of been done years ago
Storm - this time with a better direction and consistent art
Fantastic Four/Future Foundation - With a writer who gets the family dynamic, but isn't afraid to do new things too
Check out : The Invisible Woman Appreciation thread!
I NEED a Invisible Woman solo! It's got to happen sometime right?......right?
Anyway, the only acceptable artist for an Emma Frost solo is Kris Anka. Obviously.
I would honestly like to see a lot more of Spencer's John Walker, though I'm not sure whether it ought to be a solo or a team book. A Beast solo would be good too. Character needs to be redeemed and running back to the Avengers or only showing up for the next event won't do it.
Team book: X-Force, but I think the new Weapon X title will be a great substitute. After that I'd like more of the most recent Squadron Supreme. If I'm dreaming I want the JMS series back, off in it's own universe being awesome again.
Solo: Sticking with the theme before, Nighthawk. This character has always been great to read for me. Super gritty and violent and you are never quite sure if Nighthawk is actually one of the good guys.
Please bring back any Wolverine.
Yeah, I'd very much enjoy any (or all ) of the following:
The Aforementioned "Mighty Avengers" (using the Academy cadets -- or the Young Avengers crew -- or a combination of the two factions)
Illyana "Magik" Rasputin
Billy "Wiccan" Kaplan
Teddy "Hulkling/Dorrek" Altman
"Um, blah, blah, blah. And, Girl Power. Feminism, d'you know what I mean?"
