I think looking over the Marvel Universe and taking a little bit of time to see how things are being run on the inside to get a better feel of things.
1) Fire Joe Quesada. Quesada has pretty much killed Spider-Man. Spidey revealing his ID to everyone in the Civil War was just a violation of everything that Peter Parker/Spider-Man was about. And then the whole One More Day crap that occurred was even worse. When Quesada said that MJ and Spidey being together made it tough to tell some stories, that is when I knew he was being lazy.
2) Pretty simple as well. Don't really mess with the movies too much. Now there needs to be times when Marvel steps in and stops some awful things from happening (Cyclops and Professor X dying the first 5 minutes of X3), but when they have a successful director and franchise let him to his thing don't force other things on top of it (Gwen Stacy and Venom in Spidey 3).
3) Focus on the characters and not gimmicks. One of the beauty in the initial stages of the Ultimate Universe is that Marvel for the most part got back to their characters though they updated some of it. And there seemed to be a lot of fun that the writers and artists were having. That makes for better work.
