The difference is that Marvel is exceptionally well coordinated and they know what they want to accomplish.
DC just seems to meander for the last several years.
But when you read a Marvel book, because things are coordinated, you suffer through the occasional Rick Remender or Jeff Parker book because at least you know it's pushing things forward in the story.
DC doesn't have that. You end up reading a good book by somebody like Peter Tomasi, but you know by the end of the day it's not really going to have any impact on the DCU other than in its own book. So it gets sort of shuffled to the side.
I have to say, in regards to your first list, I love Keith Giffen I wish he was back at Marvel.
I also happen to really enjoy Remender and Parker quite a lot too, they are great up and comers.
