Bad news for Comic Books!

Carl Icahn, whose attempts at buying and then shattering Marvel almost destroyed one of the "big two", is attempting to buy Warner Brothers. According to ICV2:

he reportedly wants to sell all or part of its cable TV and publishing operations.

DC Comics is a part of the Time Warner family, so if his bid is successful he may end up destroying the comics legend. Can you imagine a world without Superman?

Icahn certainly can. Having read the book Comic Book Wars (an article about it is here, I hope that someone like ToyBiz is willing to buy DC if divestiture comes. But mostly I hope that Icahn...can't.
