Is Marvel Buying DC Comics?

This week Chris and Walt poke at the rumor that Disney wants to buy DC Comics.

What would that look like? Is it a good thing or is it a bad thing?

It sure does open a lot of doors for discussion and debate.

Please let us know what you thought of the show in the comments field below.

  1. I hope not. I don’t want to see Marvel-ized versions of DC characters. DC is so much more optimistic and I don’t want to see them turned into the doom and gloom of Marvel.

  2. If said acquisition takes place it would only be healthy for the comics industry both in hopefully keeping ‘floppies’ in print and its impact on the back issue market. How said merger would integrate the respective hero’s will be up to the creativity of those making the books! I wonder if the different existing titles would have a Disney logo or an amalgamation…
    While Marvel has excelled at bringing less popular hero’s to the forefront in the MCU… DC could do it as well… but seems to prefer the small screen! I could however envision films starring lesser known hero’s…Challengers of the Unknown, the Elongated Mann, Metal Men… could all be made into exciting movies given the right creators!
    Its a lot to think about… so don’t worry how your beer is brewed… just pop the top and enjoy while speculating on the next possible change in the industry!

  3. See Amalgam Comics. A DC/Marvel mashup series that mashed up characters from both sides. I had great fun reading it, one of my keepers.

  4. For all the successes of Disney’s Guardians, Ant Man and Captain Marvel – Marvel Comics have 2000 heroes that are unfilmable. If you take Marvels and DCs top 25 each – that is the future of comic books
