Yesterday Disney announced their intentions to purchase Marvel Comics. This is a weird intersection of my childhood and youth. Somehow, I just can’t reconcile the Magical World of Disney with the Amazing XMen.
There are numerous articles critiquing the buyout as well. My favourite quite by far, though, is the re-wording of the ‘Small World’ song from the Correctness blog.
It’s a world of “Hulk Smash,”
A world of “Thwipp,”
It’s a World of “Bamf,”
It’s a World of “Snikt”
I would love to see the improved dolls.
