This is the owrst thing Marvel has ever done.It can go above the film Deadpool. Really Disney...Marvel has some of the most violent characters ever. Wolverine really he's a animal what are they going to do now make Wolverine into a Goofy type character. A crossover between Howard the Duck and Donald Duck. what new comics now "What if...Iron Man met Hannah Montana"???. I really think this is a bad idea. People have said that they are doing it top have Marvel rides, but they bought the Enterprises for 4 billion. That's not rides that something else.This is really just tremendously dumb and mindless desition on marvel's part....Damn
