Disney Bought out Marvel ?!? NOOOOOOOOO


So Disney bought out Marvel comics for approximately $4 billion, owning now up to 5000 comic characters.
Disney CEO Robert Iger gives out the following statements:
"We believe that adding Marvel to Disney's unique portfolio of brands provides significant opportunities for long-term growth and value creation..."
"Disney is the perfect home for Marvel's fantastic library of characters given its proven ability to expand content creation and licensing businesses," said Marvel chief executive Ike Perlmutter."

They apparently believe that buying out Marvel will bring in a new audience to Disney that will appreciate more than just Miley Cyrus' nudes.

What are you guys going to do with 5000 comic characters anyways?

I swear if you bastards turn my Gambit and Wolverine into a new Jonas Brothers-type sensation, I will send Jack Bauer to hunt down your asses and steal your garden gnomes.....YOU HEARD ME?!

I just died a little inside today ._.
