Observe, Orient, Decide, Act
I think Buried Alien made a good point about the lack of higher concept beings in the DCU as compared to Marvel. You have the Guardians, and Darkseid and the New Gods, but that's about it for characters that show up regularly in the DC Cosmic books. I do think they have a lot of characters/concepts that are just as interesting as the Surfer, Thanos (OK, maybe not Thanos), Captain Marvel, Adam Warlock, etc. but they don't seem to push them as much as Marvel. Desaad made another good point, in that DC sort of hands Marvel their behind in the mystical department (even before the New 52 "Dark" line). While I'd like to see more DC cosmic, and more Marvel mystic (though I am loving Satana and Man-Thing in "Thunderbolts"), I'm happy enough with what we do have that I can't complain.
A Fool for the Foom
I'd love an Adam Strange book though or maybe an Omega Men book. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about either of the properties but they're established names already.
Why aren't you reading Winter Soldier? You should be!
I never got DC before the reboot because no matter what you were trying to get it was space lore. It needs to stay with Green and Red Lanterns. That way Space lore fans can get their fix and people that want to read Batman...A book about a guy without powers...Can do so without the fear of space aliens forcing Bruce Wayne to make a magic star bullet to kill DarkSeid. *shudder*

^throw her on the cover and I'm buying it.
Can DC do a great cosmic series without GL or Superman in the storyline? I don't think so.
Instead of the lower-ebb titles (GI Combat, really?), there should be a comprehensive DC Cosmic book (Giffen? Yes!). Center it around Adam Strange, and give it more balls than the aborted R.E.B.E.L.S.
