No, you haven't been remiss, you just aren't as focused on the business end of comics as I am.

Here's the basics:

Long story short: Disney spent a phenomenal amount of cash on Marvel. Reason: the movies and the resulting merchandise. So confident were they in this, in fact, that Disney bought out the movie contract with Paramount for almost half a billion dollars. The comic business, for the most part, is being left alone, I haven't noticed any significant changes there, and as long as they keep producing fodder Disney can make a buck on, it will stay that way.

You know, instead of making comics that bring in new readers and junk like that....

Ah that would make sense, since that was before I started paying attention to comics as a whole instead of just hunting through bins in hole-in-the-wall comic stores looking for vintage Captain America comics.
