Disney Buys Marvel Entertainment

Comic Book Resources just announced that Disney has bought Marvel Entertainment, bringing the House of Ideas into the Magic Kingdom. Here's the announcement: Disney Acquires Marvel Entertainment

Egad! This is big news! Now, like DC Comics, Marvel will be under the umbrella of a larger corporate organization. That's always been a benefit to DC Comics, who has been able to fall back on the strength of Warner Brothers - but can the same be said for Marvel? Marvel has always been the independent comic company - even producing it's own movies as of late. Will everything be the same under the control of the Disney Corporation? Or could we see a declawing of Wolverine, to make him more cuddly next to Micky Mouse?
