Disney Buys Marvel for $4 Billion

I'm hardly breaking the story here. The newscaster this morning rattled it off like a footnote but it still jumped out at me and made me scream "What?" out loud at the radio.

The reactions on Twitter have been funny. Punisher's emblem will change to a flower. "This Man, This Muppet". Mickey Mouse telling Bendis that Ultimate Avengers need to be a lot nicer.

I'm more curious about what this will do to the BOOM! license with Disney. And I'm morbidly curious what will the new mascots be at Universal Studios, right down the road there from Disney World.
