Disney Buys Marvel

Whoa! I wasn’t expecting to read in the New York Times this morning that Disney is buying Marvel (Comics) Entertainment:

The Walt Disney Company said Monday that it would buy the comic book giant Marvel Entertainment for about $4 billion.

I guess something like this was inevitable after Marvel went public in the 1990s and its subsequent economic fumbles and successes. There is one downside to this merger that I fear these kinds of mashups loom in the future: Hannah Montana fights crime with Spider-Man, The Mickey Mouse Club becomes a front for Xavier’s School for Gifted Children, Iron Man will spin off the Iron Mouse, etc.

Read about the acquisition here on the New York Times.
