Any questions?
In December 2009 Disney bought Marvel for $4.3 billion dollars - the deal gave disney more than 5,000 characters and its licensing, comic book and movie business

This was an important deal for Disney in terms of reconnecting with the boy demographic that the company had lost in recent years
