    1) Toned down stories Family theme.

Yeah, like Pulp Fiction and Priest by Miramax Studios owned by Disney...

oh wait, that's actually contradicting your point.

    2) Prices aren't going to drop.

Who said they would, regardless of who owns what?

    3) The censors will be out. If Marvel attempts to publish a controversial storyline that might offend it's parent company can crush it because of bad publicity.

See point #1.

    4) Does Disney really have any interest in Marvel's publishing aspect. Clearly owning the licensing rights to the characters and the ability to stick Spiderman's image on anything is worth more than the publishing part. I realize Warner owns DC and they are still publishing.

Disney isn't buying a struggling property. They see a company doing very well on all fronts and want to be able to cash in on it. As long as Marvel keeps making $$, they'll be hands-off, similar to Pixar.
