    Default Was Marvel going to buy DC's characters?

    I once heard a tale about how Marvel was offered to buy all of DC's characters except Superman and Batman...and Marvel refused.

    Did this really happen or is it a myth?

    I thought it was the other way around. Marvel was the one that went bankrupt in the 90's, and DC is backed by Warner.

    I heard rumors about that too once. It wasn't in the 90s, it was sometime before that and way before Marvel went backrupt.

    Yeah. I heard they were going to buy everything BUT the X-characters.

    Glad that didn't go through.

    This rumor was floating around in the late 70's...
