Stan Lee Totally Stoked About Disney/Marvel Deal

Okay, maybe saying he’s “totally stoked” is a bit paraphrasey, but when it comes to Disney’s unprecedented upcoming Marvel purchase, words start to fail us comic bloggers. Fortunately for fans, words never fail Stan “The Man” Lee, whose countless Marvel creations (Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, etc.) have been scooped up by the House of Mouse.

The New York Time’s MediaCoder blog has a statement from Lee via his publicist:

“I couldn’t be happier with this agreement. It’s a great move for Disney, for Marvel and for my company Pow! Entertainment since Pow! has a first-look deal with Disney. From every possible point of view, the merger of Disney and Marvel is a match made in heaven. Just imagine, with this deal Marvel gives Disney a library of literally hundreds of unique and colorful characters that have the potential to make great, high-concept movies and long-lasting franchises – and nobody knows how to play in that ball park better than Disney. This is a great day for the two companies and for the entertainment community as a whole. To sum it up as simply as possible, when you combine the best with the best, everyone wins!”

Of course, Lee’s enthusiasm comes after decades of complications with his former super hero home. As Newsarama points out, there’s been a fair share of lawsuits between the entities over the years, resulting in some pretty significant settlement money floating Lee’s way.

Whatever the case, Marvel’s rich, Disney’s rich and Lee’s rich – seriously, Marvel stock shot up like $12/share yesterday.

Like he said, “When you combine the best with the best, everyone wins!”
