Disney Acquires Marvel Comics

Holy poop, this one just popped outta now where. Disney has acquired Marvel Comics for a staggering $4 billion. Disney head Robert A Iger commented:
“This transaction combines Marvel’s strong global brand and world-renowned library of characters including Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Fantastic Four and Thor with Disney’s creative skills, unparalleled global portfolio of entertainment properties, and a business structure that maximizes the value of creative properties across multiple platforms and territories."

“Ike Perlmutter and his team have done an impressive job of nurturing these properties and have created significant value. We are pleased to bring this talent and these great assets to Disney.”
So Disney now has all the Marvel characters in its lineup. Expect a multitude of videogames to release. Wonder if we see Disney Vs Marvel, or Disney Vs Capcom...?
