Disney Acquires Marvel Comics

Watch out Spider-Man, here comes Mickey!

In a reported $4-billion deal, the Walt Disney Co. is purchasing Marvel Entertainment.  Disney hopes that the action heroes of Marvel will appeal to boys who are not that taken with the ever-so-popular Hannah Montana, Jonas Brothers and Disney Princesses (I can hear my 5-year-old niece squealing with glee at the mere mention).

Does this mean Cinderella is going to go all Ninja on us?

Not to be missed is the Telegraph‘s picture gallery of Marvel Disney mashups! This image of “Logald Duckerine” is just one example of the clever mashups presented there.
