Superheroes vs. The Economy

Well, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but the Walt Disney Company has just purchased Marvel Comics.

So now you can have Donald Duck hang out with Howard the Duck. Or maybe Minnie, Mickey, Pluto, and Goofy could be the next Fantastic Four. Or perhaps we'll see a Pixar version of The X-Men. Iron Man and WALL-E could hang out together.

I wonder how long it will take for the House of Marvel to ramp up an attraction at one of the Disney Worlds. (sigh) And the rich get richer.

Wolverine has had to pawn his adamantium claws and replace them with titanium sporks.

The Flash is picking up extra cash by powering the city with his gigantic hamster wheel.

Batman is riding the bus to crime scenes.
