    Not sure where I heard this, but I thought that, at one point, Michael Jackson wanted to buy Marvel comics.

    Anyone hear this rumor too?


Seems so. (http://splashpage.mtv.com/2009/06/25/rip-michael-jackson-comic-book-fan-collector-and-almost-the-owner-of-marvel-comics/)

So it appears that MJ did give the thought some consideration. He would still have likely been a part owner, since the cost of Marvel would still be in the couple of million of dollars. And this was in the late 90s, when the company had considerable financial negatives.

And it's not like he would have been running the company, but it would have been a business opportunity for him.
