Disney buys Marvel: How long before we see this?


Disney, parent company of the World Wide Shitstorm, bought Marvel Entertainment in a $4 billion deal.  So honestly, how long before The Hulk smashes the Sportscenter desk when his beloved Gang Green coughs up a fumble, or Marvel characters fight college mascots or Chris Berman just literally turns into The Blob?

Skip Bayless will obviously be engaging in heated debates on First Take with his comic book lookalike and bitter rival, Nightcrawler, but which SportsCenter anchor matches up best with a Marvel character? 

For starters, Stuart Scott is clearly Cyclops, Van Pelt is Professor X, Hannah Storm might already be dressed up as Mystique, and Linda Cohn would make a fine Lady Deathstrike.

Here's to hoping they move ESPN The Weekend to the island of Genosha.  Or perhaps in a bid to save the day, the Marvel superheros, being superheros, will rebel and send the Silver Surfer to destroy Bristol.

    Hey, the Hannah Storm as Mystique isn’t such a bad idea. All the blue paint would hide her face.
