Are all 'new' comic runs that aren't mini's destined to just flame out.
Yes.
The best you can hope for as a fan of a new successful book is that you get a mini series once every year or two.
The whole industry just seems to be developing bad habits that are alienating the consumer.

The Ashen Combine are the slickest new group of villains going in Marvel today.
I love Idol Alabaster and Citysmith but my favorite is Lord Ennui, who can barely be bothered to do his city-conquering.
The Impossible City is interesting, but it's obvious where that is going.
Love the art too.

Avengers #4

Battle is joined as the Avengers race to combat the Ashen Combine. But with Lord Ennui, the Citysmith, Idol Alabaster, the Dead and Meridian Diadem scattered across the planet, each with their own city for prey, have the Avengers spread themselves too thin? United, the Avengers stand. But divided...?
