Here are three analysis pieces about Monday's news that Disney is buying Marvel for $4 billion.

First up is Dorothy Pomerantz's piece for Forbes, "Marvel: How Good a Deal For Disney?"

Next is Rick Marshall's blog on MTV's Splash Page: "Three Burning Questions Surrounding Disney and Marvel's Deal." 

Finally, we have Julia Boorstin of CNBC writing "Why Disney's Surprise $4 Billion Marvel Acquisition Makes Sense"

Oh, oh, it's Tuesday morning and let's add this fun piece to the mix:

Jeffrey Anderson'a "Potential Changes in the New Disney-Marvel"...this one's a hoot!

Please leave a comment on my blog page here and let us know what you think about the deal. One facet that both DIsney management and others are emphasizing is the TV aspect of the deal, expecially how Marvel can make Disney's male-targeted XD channel be even more successful.
