It was bad enough seeing some of my favorite Squaresoft characters flounce about with Donald and Goofy, now we're going to be seeing Wolverine and Magneto do the same.

Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

So first Cthulhu retires and is seen at one of their lush golf resorts...


Now this?
I swear if I see Spidey on It's a Small World there will be hell to pay.

I have every faith in the world that this move will simultaneously ruin Marvel AND Pixar as someone in Disney is going to convince PIXAR to make a bunch of cheesy animated movies based on Marvel characters.

Does this mean DC is officially cooler than Marvel? 

Also, I wonder if Stan Lee will be cryogenically frozen next to Walt when he kicks the bucket.

So, some comics got "ruined" (which is like spraying piss on a turd, IMO).  That's BAD NEWS, right up there with the horrible landslide of shit and corruption that is heading down the mountain at us all, right now.

This opens up the possibility for a Marvel action figure to appear in Toy Story 3, does it not?  In any event, given Pixar's quality work I wouldn't terribly mind them doing a comic book movie.

So, some comics got "ruined" (which is like spraying piss on a turd, IMO).  That's BAD NEWS, right up there with the horrible landslide of shit and corruption that is heading down the mountain at us all, right now.

Well, yeah.  Which was worse, the collapse of Rome or the end of free gladiator fights?

Depends on how far you lived from the colloseum.

True. The only other thing I could think of would be Dread Cthulhu making a guest appearance on Sesame Street.

...I would actually watch that, though.
