Mickey Mouse joins the Avengers!
Disney has bought Marvel for only 4 billion dollars! 4 billion! Marvel is a cash cow these days. With Marvel rides and characters all around Universal Studios Theme Park, I can see that. And I guess that's what they get for at temporarily keeping the entire Marvel staff. Hopefully they don't slowly fire them all and give a new line of comics. I think they want to expand from superhero comics to more of the literary graphic novels. I think it's a great idea! Marvel has been lacking in those, but definitely not great writers or critical depth. And then there's lines like X-Force and The Punisher, which is incredibly bloody and violent. Will it last? Will they demand that the creators take out a lot of the gore? If so, will it work anymore? You can't have a team of sharp objects and bullets without blood! I guarantee that at the free comic book day next year Spider-man and Goofy will have a team-up. "Garsh, Spidey!" Hopefully the animalistic cast won't touch our sweet, sweet comics.
