    In the wake of “World’s Most Wanted” and “Stark Disassembled”, Scrooge McDuck buys the remains of Stark International. Meanwhile, Tony Stark and Gyro Gearloose collaborate on the greatest suit of Iron Man armor yet.

    When Norman Osborn is finally taken down once and for all and H.A.M.M.E.R. disbanded, Donald Duck is appointed director of its successor, Q.U.A.C.K.

      I think they are one and the same, so this means any lawsuits will vanish…

    Maybe we can see Prince Charming stick a magic sword deep into the chest of Wolverine negating his ability to regenerate (even after the sword is pulled out)and piercing that adamantium ribcage.
    I do have suspicions that Disney going after the muppets helped contribute to the death of Jim Henson, so I wish for Stan Lee to please be careful.
    Michael eisner mercilessley went after the Henson kids too to get the Sesame Street Muppets as well.
    Disney will not be happy until they have DC too, then Wolverine could be in every book of both companies!!!
    Rant Finished.

    Well Actually the pixar’s getting the chance at some Marvel stuff, is not bad thing.
    Imagine Pixar’s Rocket Racoon(that would fucking rock!!!), or a FF movie that is ,ya know, watchable. Also Kingdom Heart going to have some crazy new characters, becoming at same time the most silly and awesome game at same time.

    Oh, I can see it already: “Pixar Presents: Spider-Ham”, “Pixar Presents: The X-Babies”, and “Lockjaw & The Pet Avengers” soon coming to Disney XD in glorious syndication. Of course there’s going to be all-ages crossovers with Disney characters, too.

    Give me “The Incredibles Meet The Fantastic Four”, and I won’t complain!

    For that matter
    Wolverine hunts Bambi just to touch him
    Ultimate Snow White – Black Queen Gambit
    TEAM UP – ROM and Buzz Lightyear – “when comes the dire wraiths”
    What IF: Peter Parker were bitten by a radioactive mouse (guest starring Wolverine)
    Spider-man vs Jimminy Cricket “Once there was a fiddler”
    Marvel Villain teamup – The crocodile (peter pan) and the Lizard (spiderman) VS. Wolverine (natch) and Spider-man (natch) – or maybe peter pan an peter parker… pitch still in progress

    You forgot the best team-up that becomes available:

    -Deadpool and Tigger (a la Calvin & Hobbes)

    8. The Main Street Electrical Parade can now use the Shocker to power the show, causing the company electric bill to go way down.

    I just now realized: The Shocker has vibratory powers. ELECTRO could power the show, but Shocker would just break a lotta bulbs.

    With Pixar you could have the FF and The Incredibles team up against Dr Doom.

    The Power Pack could help Peter Pan beat the croc.

    The beast VS The Beast until they find out it was a set up and go after the real
    villian (as yet unknown)

    The thing I want to know is, will Disney Orlando demand to have the Marvel rides from Universal. Also will Downtown Disney now have a Marvel comic shop.

You know you have something to say, say it in the comment section
