Reply Subj: Do cartoons provide a better gateway for kids to the Marvel Universe?

    So I was wondering, do you think cartoons provide a better gateway for kids into the Marvel Universe, then comics? A cartoon doesn't have some of the problems a comic would, that prevent kids from reading it, ex: content parents may find unsuitable, 40 years of continuity, etc.

My answer is yes, but I more want to say they provide a better gateway to Marvel merchandise - which might be what you mean. I suspect there are plenty of kids (and grown ups) who will happily, even eagerly, watch a super-hero cartoon, yet never give a moment's thought to buying a comic book. And then, because they like the cartoon, they may purchase a super-hero toy or T-shirt.

Heck, if Marvel published monthly cartoon episodes instead of monthly comics, wouldn't it be great? How much would you pay to get a Marvel Cartoon Cable Channel with, say, fifteen brand new episodes each month plus re-runs galore?
