You might have heard by now that Disney is finalizing its purchase of 20th Century Fox -- specifically its entertainment rights to franchises like X-Men, Deadpool, Avatar, Alien, Predator and The Simpsons. On a base level it is chilling to see Disney consume yet another mega-property as we inevitably hurtle towards a dystopian future with one mega-corporation controlling a bland monoculture of every property known to man. But also the Avengers get to fight the X-Men now, so the internet has some memes.

#1 Many have made the observation that Disney buying up all these entertainment properties is a lot like Thanos collecting Infinity Stones


#2 Fans have already started mocking up posters mixing up the Avengers and X-Men universes

#4 Fox stars like Ryan Reynolds are having some fun with the news

#5 It's really odd to think about a family-friendly company like Disney owning R-rated franchises like Alien
