Okay so i'm not an american and i may not have been exposed to all the "horror" that is Disney nowadays, but when i was a kid i loved the Disney movies. Alladin, the Lion King etc. etc. 
Of late they have done great things with the Marvel movies, so much so that i hope they get the rights to X-men and Spiderman sooner than later.
So in my book Disney is still one of the greatest american companies out there today for which i have fond memories with the muppets, movies and pixar animations.
Adding Lucasarts to that is imo a great move, i'm truly happy about this.

its been like two months since i read an avx comic, did batman really go over to marvel and if so can someone post the issue number?

Yes actually he did in AvX #13!
The phoenix force created a portal between the MCU and the DCU so batman was able to cross, he kicked everyones ass of course.
Why did they do this? Well because Marvel has made a mess lately with their big events and needed DC to actually write a good ending to this monstrosity.
Of course this all leads up to Marvel joining the DC universe in 2013. I mean you did read the news that Disney sold Marvel to warner brothers so they could buy Lucasarts right?
So next year we will get DC NOW!! it's not a complete reboot but it will allow the marvel characters to be merged into the DCU. 
Apparently Spider-man will move to Gotham city, and get's involved with Batgirl cause he has a thing for redheads.
Hope this helps

You are so wrong, clearly this is a case of mouth to mouth resuscitation.

When I read this I thought I having a heart attack, I really don't like the idea of disney owning everything I love.

Damn right.

Could be worse, they could have been bought by EA
Actually i'm pretty happy it's disney, and i'm hopeful star wars will be a mayor franchise again. I mean if James Bond can have 23 movies, surely SW could have a few more? And 50% of the current movies were not that great.

I don't get why everybody is so hang up on continuity and if some old stories happend or not? Except maybe for fleshing out the characters involved. But to that i just say read on and new history will be made.

I'm 36 so i've been reading comics for about 25 years now, some of you might not have been born when i started reading so why care about that history. Those stories are still around and you are free to pick up an old comic and read it.

I see people say that wolfmans run was their most favorite part in DC history. Well it still can be, it's not forbidden to still read these comics and enjoy them.

The only thing i'm upset with is that imo comic stories of today are not as good as they were back then. For instance, for me nobody has come close to Claremonts run on x-men and sadly thats a lot of stories that i didn't enjoy as much as i did back then.

I feel a reboot is good from time to time, cause these universes get really restricted on what writers can do with a character because of some story that happend 25 years ago. I still want a proper reboot for marvel right now. If i'm going to be reading about the same old characters when i'm 65 (lets face it people 25 years from now cyclops will still be in his thirties and leading the x-men), i'd really prefer a clean slate now and then so we can have some great stories that otherwise couldn't happen.

I know i'm considered a nerd by reading comics, even my wife rolls her eyes at me some times but i draw the line at cosplay. Oh and collecting toys.
But more power to you who do these things.

@G-MAN: Come on man, Tin Tin? Really?
That's like reading archie comics and comparing it to something like Watchmen or Y the last man. 
If someone askes me if i read american comics i don't say something like: I sure do! i read muppet babies! 
Not saying that there is anything wrong with Tin Tin, those books have a great following but come on there is so much else out there.
So with XIII you got the right idea, but how about Storm, Murena, Thorgal or Empire USA 
You know stuff you don't read with your daughter.

it's about time! i do wish they would base it on the new series though instead of the old.
But still it's better than nothing
Would be even better if it would be based on the Blood and Chrome prequel series

Return of the Sentry? Maybe even MarvelMan?
