Head honchos at the “House of Mouse” are preparing to take their mega-corporation into the realm action fantasy and urban mythology by making moves to purchase legendary comic book publisher Marvel for nearly $4 billion dollars. The move, unprecedented in today’s tumultuous financial climate, would collectively join characters like the X-Men, Spider-Man, and The Incredible Hulk and over 5,000 of Marvel’s treasured characters with Disney mainstays such as Mickey, Donald Duck and Pluto.

By utilizing the names associated with Marvel’s empire as well as banking on the success of upcoming summer blockbusters like “Iron Man 2,” “Thor” and the “Avengers,” the media empire has made a well stated power play in an attempt to wrangle in a key marketing demographic that has remained highly elusive to them, young males.

At $30 in cash per share combined with 0.745 shares of Disney stock for each share Marvel stock holders owned, the empire that Walt built is taking no expense to appease their money-hungry stock holders. The deal should be completed by the end of this calendar year.
