Batman and Superman ARE NOT MARVEL!
They are DC, which itself has been owned by Warner since the early 70’s.
That’s why all Batman and Superman movies are Warner, as well as every other member of the Justice League of America. (Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash, et al).
Marvel, on the other hand, is Iron Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four, The Hulk, Captain America, Nick Fury, and S.H.E.I.L.D., among others.
Six Flags has had the rights to all the Looney Tunes and DC characters since the late 70’s, in part because for a time, Warner was a part owner of Six Flags Inc.
This is one of the reasons that Cedar Fair was stuck licensing Peanuts. Between what Universal owned and licensed, Paramount’s rights to Hanna Barbera, Six Flags controlling Bugs Bunny and friends, and Disney’s properties, that’s about all that was left.
It’s also why Cedar Fair had to change the names of most of the coasters at Gueaga Lake when they bought it from Six Flags, and again why they’ve had to rename many rides in the parks they bought from Paramount.
They just don’t have rights to things like Star Trek, Top Gun, and Scooby Doo.[/QUOTE]
Adding my 3 cents.
And since Marvel has the better superheroes with much more believable lives and issues this was one of the wisest purchases that Dis ever did. Xmen alone could have a whole park devoted just to itself.
