Disney buys Marvel - the Crossover Edition

Posted by Bushel Basket

It's all over the internet today that Disney has bought Marvel Entertainment, which includes Marvel Comics. The fanboys are in a tizzy.

Just to get them out of my system, here are some of Disney\Marvel synergies I hope develop out of this deal:

1. Punisher \ Mickey Mouse crossover. I know that Punisher already had to deal with Archie and the Riverdale gang, but this just has to happen.

2. The Incredibles Vs. the Fantastic Four. I mean, c'mon, most of the Incredibles' powers are a rip off of the Fantastic Four anyway. Invisibility, the ability to stretch, a big strong guy, and a kid that catches on fire. Hell, if it wasn't for the super fast kid, they'd be carbon copies.

3. The Nutty Professor in Marvel continuity. Oh, for one superhero who's powers are based on flubber. Wait, the character is owned by Universal? Really? Damn. Fine, the dad from Honey I Shrunk the Kids, then.

4. Goofy Vs. Dr. Doom. Actually, there's no crossover potential here, just want to see Goofy get whacked.

5. Chip N Dale and Squirrel Girl porn. Disney isn't as pure at heart as you might think.

6. Namor vs. the Little Mermaid. There can be only one Atlantis....

7. The Runaways on the Disney channel. Oh, for a mind controlled velociraptor to be let loose on the set of Miley Cyrus' new tv show....

8. The Bambi movie in Marvel Zombies. Maybe now people would want his mom to be shot.

9. Animal vs. the Hulk. That's right, Disney owns the Muppets. Oh, the beautiful, beautiful carnage.

10. Winnie the Pooh and Tony Stark going on a bender. Honey and booze. They could both get drunk on mead. They also both seem to be fond of pots, be they honey pots or Pepper Potts.

My friend Sarah forwarded this response to my last blog post. Really, Monty Python does say it best.

This was posted on fark.com by someone calling themselves Ozone, and I intend to use it the next time some tries to scare me with government interventionist propaganda.

"This morning I was awoken by my alarm clock powered by electricity generated by the public power monopoly regulated by the U.S. Department of Energy.

I then took a shower in the clean water provided by a municipal water utility.

After that, I turned on the TV to one of the FCC-regulated channels to see what the National Weather Service of the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration determined the weather was going to be like, using satellites designed, built, and launched by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

I watched this while eating my breakfast of U.S. Department of Agriculture-inspected food and taking the drugs which have been determined as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

At the appropriate time, as regulated by the U.S. Congress and kept accurate by the National Institute of Standards and Technology and the U.S. Naval Observatory, I get into my National Highway Traffic Safety Administration-approved automobile and set out to work on the roads build by the local, state, and federal Departments of Transportation, possibly stopping to purchase additional fuel of a quality level determined by the Environmental Protection Agency, using legal tender issued by the Federal Reserve Bank.

On the way out the door I deposit any mail I have to be sent out via the U.S. Postal Service and drop the kids off at the public school.

After spending another day not being maimed or killed at work thanks to the workplace regulations imposed by the Department of Labor and the Occupational Safety and Health administration, enjoying another two meals which again do not kill me because of the USDA, I drive my NHTSA car back home on the DOT roads, to my house which has not burned down in my absence because of the state and local building codes and Fire Marshal's inspection, and which has not been plundered of all its valuables thanks to the local police department.

And then I log on to the internet -- which was developed by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Administration -- and post on Freerepublic.com and Fox News forums about how SOCIALISM in medicine is BAD because the government can't do anything right."
