 Marvel Comics was just sold to Disney for $ 4 billion dollars! The deal is pending an anti-trust review and Marvel stockholders. So now those who wished for a Spider-Man & Mickey Mouse team-up will get their wish.

Disney will get 5,000 marvel characters. Disney said Monday that Marvel shareholders will receive $30 per share in cash plus 0.745 Disney shares for every Marvel share they own.

I am shocked.  Did Marvel Comics really need to sell themselves for $ 4 billion dollars. I don't understand certain deals sometimes. This is one of them. I just don't want Marvel comics to turn Disney style is all. I don't want lame tie in stories where I have to buy a Donald Duck comic book to finish the Fantastic Four story.

I know I am going overboard, was just caught off guard with this deal. What do you all think?-Dr.FB
