Disney bought Marvel!!

r4274226156Let me just say right off the bat, I know nothing about business.  I do however, know a thing or two about common sense.  Yahoo reports say that Marvel has been bought out by what I consider a ‘cheap’ $4 Billion.  You can read the full article here.  With the recent explosion of comic-book related films in the last 10 years alone, Marvel has banked quite a profit margin.  Not to mention continuing comic book series, television shows, video games, and other marketable merchandise.  This is all somewhat related to an essay I submitted earlier this month about comic books as film adaptations.  You can read that here.

If you own Marvel shares, as of this morning (Aug. 31, 2009) they went up a whopping 26%, will receive and extra $30 in cash from every share you own, and were given 0.745 shares of Disney for every Marvel share you own!  Disney shares have dropped about 3% on this day but don’t worry.  I’m sure that prices in those stocks will rise very soon.  The deal takes full effect by the end of the year.

  1. Holy broken english, Dark Raven! I believe you mean ‘right off the bat,’ not ‘right off the back.’ The phrase originates from a game called baseball you earthlings play. In my home, planet Webster, we mostly play Scrabble. Worry not! For we can’t all be perfect.

    Grammar Avenger…Awaaaaaaaaay!!!!

  2. I have the right mind to pick up a baseball back and beat u guys over the head until you take bat those silly comments you left. Just bat off and leave dark raven alone.
