4kids 2.0 anyone?

Seriously I can't imagine Disney of all companies to deal with shows that aren't G rated.

Disney deals with plenty that isn't G rated as they own quite a few companies now that have material that doesn't fall under that category.

Yeah, fyi, Disney is one of six giant multinational media conglomerates.If you look at all the sub companies, they have plenty of adult material. They just don't put it under the Disney logo. Though still I don't see Stan Lee's anime and manga going into anything beyond teen audiences. Hell, some of this stuff might fit preteens even.

Meanwhile, I hope Stan's venture with Japanese companies fares better than some of the crap luck he got stuck with in the 90s and 00s in America. At least one company went belly up and Stan also got involved with a con artist who was involved with a scam fundraising with Hillary Clinton' senate campaign. So here's hoping Stan's business ventures are turning over a new leaf this decade.

I thought Touchstone was created to handle titles they didn't want to brand Disney like Nightmare Before Christmas.

Not sure about Touchstone, but I've noticed most (but not all) Disney movies/shows are family friendly. Can't really imagine doing wonders with that have Stan Lee involved.

I'll admit, I was a little harsher than I needed to be, based on what they did to Naruto Shippuden, I am quite skeptical.

Again, you act as if Disney is one single company. It's a whole host of companies under one conglomerate. I'm sure Disney will find an outlet for Lee's work, whether it be more for kids or more for teens. And really, I don't see Lee's manga and anime out put going any further than teens. Let's not forget Ultimo and Shonen Jump is for kids. As for Naruto, that's under Disney's Disney Anime hyper channel which was formerly ABC Family, which is under Disney's

Also, to illustrate the point, is ESPN for kids? Is ABC's Lost a children's program? Was the Meryl Streep and Philip Seymour Hoffman film Doubt kiddie fare? All these projects are distributed by parent company Disney.

Again, Disney is one of six media giants. They're not just an animation studio doing kids films.

Minor correction, but ABC Family still exists. Disney X-D is what used to be Toon Disney. They changed their name to broaden their programming, kinda like Sci-Fi/SyFy.

Ok, so almost all of Stan Lee's legacy is in hands of the Mouse now, hoping they don't screw it up too much... Rolling Eyes

Speaking of Ultimo the anime, what happened to Heroman? The Manga didn't look to bad all said.
