-Really don't think Disney is going to intrude on the comic book publishing side of things. Unless, of course, Spider-Man starts rapiing people or Thor becomes a flaming sterotype. The big problem on the publishing end will be distribution. Marvel uses Diamond....Disney uses Harper....hrrmmmm.....THIS could cause chaos!

-Disney is interested in the liscensing side of things. Captain America toothbrushes, Aunt May's Wheat Cake batter, Cartoon cartoons cartoons! Disney right now pretty much cater to just little girls. Little boys, right now, don't have much Disney interest. Hannah Montana, HSM, Wizards of whatever, etc are all marketed towards tween girls. Marvel on their side they can infiltrate the tween and teen boy market.

-Disney is interested in the movie side of things. Guess they will absorb Marvel Studios. But you have problems with some movie properties. Sony is committed towards 3 more Spider-Man movies. Fox has perpetual rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and Daredevil. Which means as long as they keep making movies, the rights are theirs. Disney lawyers will earn their pay here. Look to Disney to buyout those contracts over the next few years.

-Universal Studios: Islands of Adventure has a Marvel themed 'Island'. I live in Orlando and this is a hot topic. From what I understand they have perpetual rights to X-Men, Hulk, Fantastic Four, Captain America. NOT the Thor, Iron Man, Avengers stuff. Say Disney plays ruff (and they will) Universal could easily retheme the Hulk coaster, Dr. Doom's Fearfall, and the Storm 'teacup' ride. BIG problem is the state of the art big deal Spider-MAn ride. That will be a nightmare. Rumor has it though that Michael Bay was in town checking out the Spider-MAn ride (Transformers anyone?). Hasbro has the rights to make Marvel toys and Disney has a Hasbro themed toyshop, but maybe Universal could make a Hasbro toy Island? Transformers replacing Spider-Man, GI Joe themed coaster replacing the Hulk, Stretch Armstrong is the new Fearfall and a Mr. Potatohead teacup ride!!! Simple. A Nintendo themed island could work too!

Seriously I'm a huge fan of Donald Duck so I wouldn't mind mixing of the two continuums a bit.

My lame ideas:

1. Mickey Mouse lifts the hammer of Thor and becomes imbued with his power. Mickey & Disney World wages war against the legions of Asgard. Asgard is naturally conquered.

2. Black Pete and the Beagle Boys join the Masters of Evil.

3. Emma Frost begins a mental affair with Donald Duck.

4. Daisy Duck becomes the next Phoenix...then she turns into Dark Daisy when she finds out about Emma.

5. Pluto joins the Pet Avengers. He begins an affair with Aunt May's dog Ms. Lion.

6. Goofy becomes the newest host for the Carnage symbiote. Later that year comes the 17 part crossover Maximum Goofage.

7. The Kingpin gets Minnie Mouse hooked on heroin. A brief sex tape called One Night In Disney World is short to follow.

8. Clarabelle Cow joins the Guardians of the Galaxy. She leaves when it is discovered that she not Mantis is the Celestial Madonna.

9. Scrooge McDuck buys Stark Enterprise. As a result Tony Stark has a hard time fitting into the Gizmo Duck outfit he's forced to wear as Scrooge's bodyguard.

10. Hank Pym joins Chip and Dale's Rescue Rangers. He has to leave after he beats up Gadget.
