Marvel fans should be weeping!

The big news today is that Disney plans on buying Marvel for 4 billion dollars. Some people say that Marvel fans should be rejoicing since this will get Marvel out into the general market. I am saying no way! Think about the good it did Transformers by using Shia Labeouf (former Disney teen in case you never watched Even Stevens). There's so many people jumping on the Transformers bandwagon now that it's ridiculous. I can only imagine how many people would jump on the Marvel bandwagon once Disney vouched for it. I'd think that a lot of people would start reading comic books and this could be good and bad. It could be good since higher sales would hopefully mean more and better comics. It could also be terribly bad since writers might get complacent and not have as high quality comics since so many bandwagon readers wouldn't demand it. Also some Marvel characters just aren't "Disney friendly," such as Stacy X. I mean come on she can manipulate pheromones, which enables her to be the biggest whore ever.

Hopefully if this deal goes down it will be a good thing for Marvel. I can imagine a sweet animated Marvel film and get really excited. But, I can also imagine them trying to squeeze Miley Cyrus or Ashley Tisdale into roles that they really don't belong in or even deserve to be considered for.

I think we should be relativly safe, Disney owns ABC too but you don't really realize it, so hopefully this will be one of those, lots of money thrown at them, but other than that just let them go, especially since they are already successful on their own. *finger cross*
