Marvel Bigwigs Set To Make Out Like Bandits On Disney Acquisition Deal

The article is pretty much what's described in the headline there, an accounting of what some of Marvel's major players stand to make as the acquisition deal is consummated. I don't want to sound all 3 AM in the dormitory hallway about it, but I do think it's worth noting just where the money goes when a deal takes place, and that we might keep that in mind the next time someone rages about the arrogance of a creator wanting some $5K they're owed, or a family expresses sadness that the patriarch of their family negotiated himself out of a credit 50 years ago or any number of similar, depressing circumstances. The system works, sure, but for whom?
