Disney has bought Marvel Entertainment. A move that will no doubt irk Marvel fans. Myself NOT among them.
For $4Billion, a company that perpetuates itself by selling and reselling tired old franchises gets access to over 1000 MORE tired old franchises.
If not already clear: I am not a fan of Marvel.
Granted; I've enjoyed the recent batch of movies that have spawned from their material, but the comics themselves are dire, convoluted and repetetive crap.
I file Disney in more or less the same column. The last half-decent thing that they produced was Kim Possible (which they succeeded in ruining by stretching its run).
Neither company has a clue how to generate new content, which is why there are so many "sequels" to Disney classics and why Marvel has started peddling translations of high-quality French comics, such as Sky Doll.
