I see dots; I connect dots. This is A Conspiracy!
While I was a bit hesitant to buy into the conspiracy that Marvel Comics was doing away with a lot of the Fantastic Four and X-Men comics, promotion, merch, and pretty much anything else with a 4 or an X on it because of issues with movie licensing, the latest batch of news has pushed me over the edge, and I am now a believer. I guess it makes sense from a financial standpoint (although I still can’t get the numbers to add up) but, numbers aside, it seems like a pretty mean thing to do to us, the fans and readers. But, when I dug a little deeper into Marvel’s Movie history, the timeline shows just how cutthroat Marvel has been with cross-promotion in film.
