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.

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.  

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.

How about a The Incredibles/Fantastic Four crossover. Oh wait... they were the same goddamn thing in the first place!!!
You cannot fathom the immensity of the fuck i do not give.

We appear to be doomed by our DNA to repeat the same destructive behaviors our forebears have repeated for millenia. If anything our problem solving skills have actually diminished with the advent of technology & our ubiquitous modern conveniences. & yet despite our predisposition towards fear-driven hostility; towards what we anachronistically term primitive behavior another instinct is just as firmly encoded in our make-up. We are capable as our ancestors were of incredible breathtaking acts of kindness. Every hour of every day a man risks his life at a moments notice to save another. Forget for a moment the belligerent benevolent billionaires who grant the unfortunate a crumb of costfree cake. I speak of pure acts of selflessness. A Mother who rushes into the street to save a child from a speeding vehicle. A person who runs into a burning building to reach a family trapped on the upper story. Such actions,such moments,such unconscious selfless decisions,define what it is to be human

Maybe Marvel will screw Disney up.

We might be approaching this from entirely the wrong direction.

Maybe the comination of deadpool and mickey mouse will result in a sort of particle/anti-particle annihilation, leaving us disney free and squid with a huge hole where Kissimmee used to be.

Also, there will be no more marvel comics but also no more marvel comic /movies/.

I was just thinking what Joe Quesada would've done to Snow White and the Seven Dwarves.

I laughed, a lot.

Optimist.  Disneyland and Disneyworld will survive the death of our species.

It's a dead world, after all...

Snow White would have ENORMOUS breasts, wear spandex, and constantly strike poses that shove said breasts 3 feet forward?

Well that too.  I was referring to the infamous Spiderman plot where Quesada made Spiderman make a deal with the devil, whereby his aunt was cured of cancer, but he never got married.  It led to much (fairly well justified, considering the character derailment) fanboi angst.

Just imagine a remake where Snow White finds out Doc is dying, and makes a pact with Satan whereby she never gets married to The Prince, but Doc is cured.  What a great story for the kids.

Now I'm picturing Zombie Disneyland.
