Disney Buys Part of Stan Lee's POW! Entertainment

Posted: January 2nd, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Disney Buys Part of Stan LeeSubmit Comment
As Disney was sealing its deal with Marvel Entertainment on Thursday, it was also expanding its ties with POW! Entertainment, the company led by the man who once ran Marvel and co-created many of its signature characters, Stan Lee.

Disney is acquiring a 10% stake of POW! for $2.5 million. It is also acquiring "enhanced rights" to the company's creative side as well as exclusive consulting services. It was not clear what the rights and services entailed or the reason for expanding its relationship with POW!

Disney signed a first-look arrangement with the company in 2007. Although no projects have come to fruition on the feature side, several are in development, including lighthearted mystery tale "Nick Ratchett," action-adventure project "Blaze" and one called "Tigress." POW! is also working on several projects for the home entertainment sector.

Disney may be hoping to tap in to Lee's creative side to create concepts and stories that will work across several platforms, from gaming to the company's young male-skewing Disney XD channel. It may also hope to tap into his knowledge of the Marvel Universe, though Lee hasn't been involved with Marvel's comic books since the early 1990s.

stan looks like a retard in the pic.

And they should have waited till stan was death to make this transaction with one of his siblings, it would have been cheaper.

Stan is so f*ckin' old that I'm almost certain he is around by puppet strings.

My guess is they prob want to power position Lee at the top of Marvel again. Not a good idead considering he'll be dead before the ink dries on any contract he signes but I understand the effort.

Stan doesn't really do anything anymore. He's kind of like the Queen of England. He just writes letters and drinks tea.

Stan better be leaving some of that money to his fans when he kicks the bucket because there is no way that he'll be able to spend it all so what is the point of making new deals now?

And what new characters has Stan Lee made recently that have been any good?

POW! I can picture the meeting between Disney and Stan Lee about this settlement.
Very similar to the office scene in Step Brothers between Brennan, his older brother Derek and Randy.
POW! PA-POW!
