Disney Buys Marvel Comics


This is the news I woke up to this morning.

I have to admit, this is news that does not sit well with me at all. I do not like the idea of Mickey Mouse and Hannah Montana standing next to the likes of Spiderman and Wolverine. It's not cool.

As much as I love Disney, they are really getting too big and powerful for their own good, and the idea that the house of mouse now owns the creations of Stan Lee? Not cool.

I can just see the spin offs now:

The Wizards of Waverly Place Meets Doctor Strange.

The Suite Life With Zac and Cody and Jubilee

That's So Raven and Phoenix

The Avengers Meets The Jonas Brothers

Sonny and Rogue with A Chance.

Howard The Ducktales

The possibilities are endless for Disney now! And now that means Disney CAN officially get their hands on that treasured comic convention money ranging from Comic Con to grassroots conventions.

Hipsters who cosplay and hate Disney will now have to live with the fact that when they dress as their favorite Marvel Comics character, they are supporting The Walt Disney Company.

Much worse, this news fucks up Universal Orlando, who has an entire part of the park and two award winning rides dedicated to Marvel Comics characters: The Amazing Spiderman and The Hulk.

Let's not forget what this can do to the releases of future potential films like Iron Man 2 and Thor and any other marvel themed movies in the pipes.

Thank you, Disney, for fucking it up. Now let me wait in a long line to get my picture taken with Magneto in Disney's California Adventure.
