Disney team-up should mean a Marvel-ous Main Street, USA

By Steve Crum

The newspaper headline tells all: Spidey hangs in Disney's web now. Mega entertainment buzz is all a twitter and a blog over the Walt Disney Company’s announcement Monday of its purchase of Marvel Enterprises for $4 billion. No MIckey Mousing about it, this adds nearly 5,000 Marvel characters to the Magic Kingdom conglomerate.

Does this sound like a set-up for strained, corny jokes about Marvel superheroes and villains changing the venue of Disneyland and Disney World? You bet your Spidey sense it does. Therefore, with Marvel’s main artist/creator Stan Lee in mind, welcome to...DISLEELAND & DISLEE WORLD!
