I thought I was being quite civil in my panic.

This was prompted by some absolute frothing-at-the-mouth hysteria I saw on DeviantArt.

I'm finding the overreactions to be amusing. Minnie as the Scarlet Witch? Goofy as Venom? Gizmo Duck as Iron Man? *giggle*

On a more serious note, I wouldn't put it past them to do kiddie animated versions of various comics and similar atrocities. I don't know that they'll mess with the current lineups much, but I bet there will be plenty of little merchandising opportunities and some more mainstream marketing of comics.

I love some of the crossover parodies I've seen.

They may do kiddie cartoon versions. That sort of thing doesn't bother me. And it can actually be pretty amusing. Have you seen DC's "Tiny Titans"?

I guess comics fans never realized that Marvel was sold off/sold out years ago.

Some people think that Stan Lee still owns the joint.

Haha, true!

It's just as well he doesn't. Have you seen some of the crap he's put out since? Oy vey!

My brother liked, "Now Spider-Man's gonna be MORMON because they recruit all their animators out of BYU!"

Also, how weird is it that this seemed weirdly logical? I mean, now, if they'd bought DC, THAT would be weird.

Especially since DC is owned by Time Warner.

Well, sure, but THE POINT IS.
