Disney is acquiring Marvel. Not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Is there any upside for Marvel, except the financial benefit to Marvel's shareholders? Just thought I'd post.


As far as movies and TV shows go, not much. Touchstone had some pretty un-Disney-like movies in the past, too.

On the comics side, though, there IS a lot of room for increased profits. Disney will move the Bullpen to China, and start demanding higher profits, refusing to pay the 7-year-olds who write the comics enough money to afford any!

(The above was written tongue-in-cheek, but one wonders...)
