Disney Buys Marvel Comics

I do not know if people without a comic book background understand how big a deal this is. Disney has just completed a deal to purchase Marvel comics - including both comic and movie properties. This means that Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Captain America all metaphorically wear mouse ears from here on out.

This has the potential to transform the industry as Disney brings its marketing muscle behind one of the two big names in comic books. It also leaves one wondering if Disney will allow rival movie studios like Sony to continue making films of characters owned by Disney. I suspect not.
