Mickey Mouse Does Whatever a Spider Can

Disney has just acquired Marvel Comics. On the downside, two massive stocks of incredibly lucrative IP monopoly have now merged. On the upside, Quesada apparently thinks this will give Marvel more freedom, though I don’t exactly see why.

(But hey, now if there’s ever a merger between Disney and Time-Warner, then DC and Marvel would be owned by the same company. On the downside – still more massive IP-sustained monopoly. On the upside: more crossovers, or even a fusion of universes. FWIW.)
