Things that make you say "Whaaaat?" - Disney is buying Marvel.

A feeling of dread has come over me. A little voice in the back of my head is saying, "What if they disnify my favorite comic book heroes?"

Surely they wouldn't. They couldn't! Right? Yet, I can't wrap my mind around how they will honor what Marvel is about, because it isn't the same, *pretty, pretty* that Disney is about.

Don't get me wrong, I like Disney. I feel like I'm one of those weirdos (and let's face it, we're all weirdos in some way) who doesn't want her mashed potatoes to be touching her peas. FOOD MUST NOT TOUCH! I don't want my Marvel touching my Disney. It'll get infected!

Hopefully they will be smart about it and not screw up the things Marvel does well. So far they haven't screwed up Pixar, so maybe it will be ok.

I think I just saw that Disney owns ABC (tv channel). How much stuff does that company own???

Looks like they own ABC, ESPN, Touchstone Pictures, Miramax Films, Pixar, New Horizon Interactive, Hollywood Records, and a bunch of other small companies.
