The problem is that Bendis thought that if he used the characters, that he'd automatically get the fans and critical acclaim that went with them, without putting forth any meaningful effort. He's like Loeb like that, only with less his pet characters beating up the popular ones to make his seem cool.
So BM nds a writer hw actually understands d xcter & also has a proper compelling devlpmnt & progression 4 d xcter.
I don't know if I agree with that. It can be done, but it has to be gradual process. Bendis tended to just have guys show up and be significantly different.

Ah well. It's all a waiting game of some form I'd say. Someone as cool as Blue Marvel won't stay out of the limelight forever. We just have to wait for the inevitable story someone decides he'd be good for.
I would've liked to see him as a member of the expanded roster in the recent Avengers series. It'd be fun to see how he might react on a team where he's a rookie on the team but otherwise super experienced himself since he seems to be a lone wolf (and his team up with the Avengers in his mini was a small and quick one by all regards).
Bring back the Blue Marvel!
My Adam, the Blue Marvel youtube video!
We have to wait until the writers of both DC and Marvel remember that they are professional writers. For editors to remember that they need to develop their properties as a whole and instead of waiting until Kevin G comes back, someone is told to use the character.
They need to stop with the glorified fanfiction, already.
There's no need or obligation to use him specifically... he's just an option among many.
I think if Marvel ran itself like a business, BM's chances of appearing would greatly increase, instead of having to wait until a writer who liked BM as a kid (or Kevin G or Dan Slott) get around to using them.
His chances would probably decrease if we did the numbers as well. How many Marvel characters are there? Thousands. Thousands that have only a small room to share the limelight with others.
Marvel does remember that it is a business. That is why we see business-like decisions in a lot of Marvel's recent creative processes. The same decisions that have seemingly enraged some fans.
