Disney exploits Marvel for promoting Tron's sequel

And how do they go about doing this? By getting Marvel to draw and publish several covers for their own comics output that depict Marvel heroes as they would supposedly look in a computerized world. Wired has at least 10 scans of these. But ugh, do they look awful! Even the one with Ms. Marvel is simply dreadful. Though it does tell what the Disney Corp's real intentions are with Marvel, and that's to milk it for little more than insipid promos.

Tron was actually a very dull movie when it was first produced in 1982, and the special effects didn't help. If anything, it was a precursor for movies that overindulge in FX (I'd sooner get bitten by a Texas rattlesnake that be lost in The Matrix again. I made a big mistake viewing that film almost a decade ago). I certainly don't see what the point is of making a sequel to it now.

I think this very blatant misuse by Disney just shows how their purchase of Marvel is really turning out to be a bad thing, and variant covers this bad are only going to precipitate their downfall.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
