The problem is that a lot of these books like Flash and Green Arrow ended up getting diluted. You're not just reading about that character, you're reading about a whole family. It removes what makes the main guy special and it's confusing for people new to comics.

the new Aqualad DOES need to be reintroduced soon because as you said he's really recognizable now but Id want him to operate as Aquaman's partner for awhile in the Aquaman book before he get's shoveled onto a team. Especially a team like the current Titans which Aquaman really has no connection with, in the old universe it would have made more sense as Lorena was a Titan and Aquaman was connected in that way. But now it'd be pretty much be "Ok you Aqualad now, go hang out with these people I don't know in Batman's ex-sidekick's penthouse". I would rather Jackson/Kaldur you know whatever they end up calling him in the new universe just be in Aquaman and maybe occasionally have guest appearances for a year or two before joining a team.
Miss Martian, again really recognizable now, needs to be reintroduced. Id be cool with her in the Titans (you know provided it was better than it is now, as it is now Im not sure I want to stick any other teen hero's in there) but Id rather her be in that supposedly upcoming Raven led team book where she wouldn't have to compete with 4 other bigger name legacy hero's for awesome moments and could be the clear most powerful member of the team, kinda mirroring Martian Manhunter in the JLA you know? That or she could have an action-comedyish backup or something.
O and don't hate on Bunker, his powers might not be the most creative but he's still really entertaining and one of the parts of the current Titans book that I actually really like.

I really don't see how people can focus on Bunker's powers being unoriginal as a particularly big negative.
No one else on the team is all that more original.
And while yes, Bunker makes constructs like Green Lantern. There's a subtle diference in that GL's constructs are hard light and Bunker's are psionic.
