With so many different departments, is it any wonder Marvel and Disney can’t keep a secret?

After reports surfaced earlier this month that Disney, industry leader in world domination, might be in the process of purchasing Hasbro, toy maker of G.I. Joe, Transformers, and My Little Pony, grown-ass adult fans have been wondering how long it would take The Mouse to take their favorite toy and cartoon franchise aimed at preprubescent girls, turn it around, bend it over, and destroy it.
Spinning out of the shocking conclusion of Avenger Arena #3.1, MLA:IM teams Arcade up with Marvel’s newest super-villain, Farmer Jones, as they create even more dastardly ways for these characters to kill each other. From what little was leaked, we are able to piece together that, at first, each Jr. Avenger will be teamed up with a pony who possess an ability that the Avenger is missing. For example, X23 will be teamed with Rainbow Dash in order to fly above her enemies before launching herself, claws out, down into the hide of which ever pony is unlucky enough to be teamed with whomever she is hunting. Reptil, who can fly on his own, rides Rarity not only for her magical skills but also to trick Striker into getting close in order to discuss fashion and butterflies, so that Reptil can rip off his head.
As the numbers of both heroes and ponies dwindle, Arcade and Famer Jones divide up the corpses for personal use; Arcade will use his to create androids based on the fallen heroes to infiltrate the inner circles of their grown-up counterparts, whereas Farmer Jones will use his portion to start a line of designer glue marketed towards rich white girls who like that sort of thing.
Eventually, like in Survivor, the teams must turn on each other in order for there to be only one ultimate survivor who will go back to their normal life with absolutely no emotional scarring at all, unlike the readers, who will be devastated forever.
Look for My Little Avengers Arena: Its Magic #1 in Marvel’s March solicitations, and keep an eye on any of your friends who post on Tumblr, as you might need to dial the suicide hotline.

About the Author - GHERU
RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time. RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage. Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write. RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them. RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor. You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
