The Marvel of Disney

I was thinking about Disney buying Marvel and really dosen't matter to me anymore, i stopped reading Marvel years ago. I was never the biggest Marvel fan out there but i had two favorite Marvel hereos, Iron Man and Daredevil. To me DD and Iron Man are Marvel's best creations, Iron Man combined super-hero action with SciFi and DD was the loner hero (not un-like Batman at times over at DC) who never stopped or gave up and he didn't whine about everything like Spider-Man. I have no clue what's going on with these two characters now but i think i enjoyed the Iron Man movie because it was like the comic back in the old days, i liked the DD movie but i think Elektra part just dragged it down.
I always wanted a DD/Batman book and paired Iron Man with the Flash (Barry Allen of course) in their own book. Would have made the young me very happy.

The two covers up there are the first DD and Iron Man comics i bought (probably had extra change from buying DC comics).


  1. It worries me some. Marvel's still doing some good stuff, like their NOT-for-kids MAX line headlined by The Punisher. That stuff could get under Mickey's skin.

  2. Maybe (like i read somewhere today...memory is the first thing to go when you get old and cranky) Disney wants to get their characters back into comics.
    Punisher is one of Marvel's better characters.

  3. I had no clue Disney was buying Marvel until I visited your blog. I do like some Marvel comics, but I was always more of a DC guy.

  4. I'm a DC guy too.
    Disney Marvel deal seems to have surprised many.

  5. I'm not sure what to think of that. Good ole Disney....they just BUY their competition!
