Disney & Marvel. A Good Combination?

There's been a lot of speculation on Disney's purchase of Marvel Comics.  I have read positive comments as well as negative.  With the new promotion of Tron Legacy we have seen how Disney has used Marvel characters to promote the movie.  Many fans wonder what impact a company like Disney will have on our favorite characters as they move ahead in the stream of things.  While not everyone can be made happy it will prove to be an interesting development as time goes on.

For investors the move was great!  It sent Marvel stock soaring and several shareholders made money on the deal.  Not that Marvel Entertainment needed it as their stock had continued to climb throughout the recession.  The growing interest in Marvel characters has been due to some successful movies and with Marvel creating their own studio it was just a matter of time before a bigger fish came along.  It reminds me of Qui Gon Jinn's words in Episode I, "There's always a bigger fish!"  Disney certainly is that.  As to my own personal opinion over the Marvel purchase I am undecided.  As a business man and investment professional I am in agreement with it.  As a comic book fan and store owner I am not sure.  I think I will have to wait to see what directions the company goes in order to formulate an opinion.  What do you think? VoteDo you think Marvel being owned by Disney is a positive move forward?
I'm not sure. I'll have to wait and see.

  1. I Think Disney Owning Marvel Is A Good Thing! DC Has Warner Bros In Their Corner, Marvel Needed Somebody! I Heard Alot People Saying Disney Would Be The Downfall Of Marvel, And I Dont Agree With It. Disney Is A Smart Company Their Looking To Making Money Not Lose Money. If They Miss Use The Properties Its Going To Hurt Them. Yeah The Tron/Marvel Pictures Are Promotion For A Disney Property But I Thought They Were Really Cool Looking, It Be Cool If They Did A Comic With Marvel Heroes And Villians Facing Off Against Each Other In The Tron Setting, Would Make For An Interesting Read!!! I Believe Disney Will Pour Money Into Marvel And Make It Better In The Long Run.
