Disney to buy Marvel Entertainment for $4 billion US... Will Spiderman get therapy?

Will Spidey get psychotherapy? Will Bruce Banner get suppressed? Will any more characters get to die and then get better? Will comics get special, even longer copyright than other forms of entertainment? Stay tuned, as goody-two-shoes Disney will be soon be owning all the neurotic and stressed out characters of Marvel.

Stan - my heart goes out to you......

Oh dear lord, please tell me it isn't so! Wolverine wearing mouse-ears and having to quit smoking his stoogies?

Why is there no justice in the world!

Yeah, I'm sure he's moaning all the way to the bank...

Anyway, the article points out that the existing movie rights to the characters haven't been transferred away from the rival studios of Fox, Paramount and Sony... and that happens to include Marvel's most popular characters. So Disney gets the rights to make movies of... what? Hawkeye? The Falcon? Moon Knight?

With Disney's prospects already fading, adding a bunch of B- and C-list superheroes to their fold won't accomplish much. They'd be better off making an Incredibles sequel...

Think of the possibilities

Aw, c'mon. Think of where this can go!

Ariel and the Beast as the newest members of the X-Men (she even has red hair like Phoenix!).

Wolverine in the reboot of Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolverine?

The new Fantastic Four - the Incredibles (oh wait - that was the what they were modeled on).

Now for Time-Warner to buy DC - Flash vs Speedy Gonzales, Daffy Duck vs Green Lantern.

Oohhh - my head is spinning!

I had heard that a contingent of low-life criminal types have been hanging out in the Hundred Acre Wood and so now Spidey can go help Pooh and Piglet and the gang.

You know, that's already happened. Thankfully, we haven't seen much of that other than marketing merchandise.

And every so often the entire Marvel Universe can be threatened by Hook and the Lost Boyz.
