    The Associated Press: Disney to buy comic book powerhouse Marvel for $4B

    Walt Disney Corporation has bought Marvel Entertainment, Inc. for a reported $4 billion.

    Marvel now as a huge cash lifeline that they had lacked for years that rival DC Comics has had in the hand of their owners, Warner Brothers.

    This is an extension of their prior purchase of the Marvel Productions backlog that were purchased when the company bought Saban Entertainment and Fox Family Channel in 2001 from Fox. The contents of the purchase were pretty great works which included their 1990s X Men, Fantastic Four, Iron Man, and Spider-Man series as well as the earlier Spider-Woman, 1978 Fantast Four series, and 1981 Spider-Man series and 1981 Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends series.

    They won't get them, AOL/Time Warner owns Warner Brothers and all the Warmer Brothers properties including Marvel's rival: DC Comics. No way in hell that they ever sell Warner Brothers or any of their properties...especially not to their rival company.

    True...but they would sell of their Turner networks and properties before they sell off their Warner Brothers properties.
