One inspiring idea Jeb Bush had in a recent interview about comic publishers

GOP candidate Jeb Bush may not know much about superhero comics, and he's not the candidate I'd want to support, but if there's something worthwhile to take away from the recent interview he gave in Las Vegas, it's the following:
"And I wish I owned Marvel, as somebody who believes in capitalism."
Now isn't that an interesting idea! Imagine that, being the owner and manager of a comics company. Something I'm sure a lot of people would want to do. But then, we'd have to prove we could restructure to a better business format, one that would rely on direct-to-paperback/hardcover format, and stop wasting so much money producing company wide crossovers that allow no creative freedom. If a sensible person were to fulfill those steps for starters, it could avail tremendously, as could ceasing with all the abusive storytelling that's become a terrible staple of superhero comics for over 2 decades now.

I'd definitely like to see some conservatives willing to step up to plate and offer to buy ownership of Marvel and DC comics as book publishing companies, and Bush's comments are something to ponder seriously. Because there is all sorts of potential in trying to own a comics company and hire the best writers who can conceive tasteful storytelling that doesn't mire itself in the kind of revolting ideas we've seen over the past decade. So maybe some businessmen and women would be willing to step forward and offer to buy or at least license the use of the Big Two for a good cause? Maybe Sheldon Adelson, for example? If anybody can convince bigshots with a tasteful view of what makes good entertainment to give it a try, I think they'd be helping an undermined art form tremendously.

Maybe, but what would you put first, saying the glories of conservatism or entertaining others?
