Someone on facebook (I believe) mentioned, a little while ago, leaving comic books on Long Island and I couldn't help but smile. Actually, he referred to Long Island as the Isle of Long, which is something I used to say. My friends had a house on the Isle of Long and they let me stash a box of old Marvel Comics there, that I, over time, completely forgot about.

In comic book lingo, I was a Marvel with a minor in DC. As a kid I really enjoyed the Marvel characters. They were generally darker books with good writers and I had a little collection going (that has dissipated over time).

I've also been a fan of most of the movie inceptions (Ghost Rider was crap) and have been pretty enthused about movie plans for the Avengers and the tie-ins with Thor, Captain America, etc. When the news came down the Mouse bought a new piece of cheese, I grimaced. I do not want to see the mouse ears on a single Marvel comic book.

Listening to some of the comments from the big Disney fans (you know who you are...and in some cases I know who you are), they seem to share the same concerns albeit from the other perspective: "I don't want to see someone dressed as Ironman walking with Mickey at Disneyland." I concur.

On the outset it seems like a pretty good business move. The Marvel Superhero pictures are making money and Disney's got the bucks, to up the production values if need be but you have to wonder.

I hope that like with the other properties they have they leave them alone and just take the money they make. Although the next Spiderman or future Ironman movies might be released by a Disney affiliated distributor.

Actually rights to Spidey is all still Sony, which is why they are going on with the next trilogy. It's a cash cow.
