Why the fuck is love an element?
Though I have a question that seeming no one wants to ask about Marvel Publishing? If there's no commitment to title diversity during the bad times when its harder to make money, what makes people think there will magically be a commitment when it the economy is better, and its even easier to be lazy?
Those who refuse to learn from History, will repeat History as they wonder "What the F*ck happened?"
Heroes For Hire, Black Widow, Spider-Girl and X23 are all recent books that had female leads.
The difference between Marvel and DC traditionally is that Marvel will USUALLY axe a book once it goes below 25K in sales.
DC kill level is something like 15K or thereabouts( and if the book has a vocal fanbase they will leave it alone even if it goes below that for a while).
DC also has the advantge of tying in its female characters to its major franchises: Batgirl, Supergirl, Batwoman.
Both Marvel and DC need to start marketing to people other that dyed in the wool fans whose reading habits will never change.
Everybody who gets a Kindle Fire is a potential Marvel customer.
I'm not sure either Marvel or DC have any idea how to read this new audience.

As someone who tried that Heroes for Hire 1 back last year , we have to remember...it was pretty bad. It was like the writers looked at DC and decided...hey we can do Birds of Prey and lift it . I jokingly called it Birds of Prey written for the Marvel Universe more or less.
