Description
 
Dan Raviv (au). In the late 1980s, billionaire financier Ronald Perelman bought Marvel Entertain. -- creator of Captain Amer., the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man, the X-Men, & other super-heroes. After he took the co. public, Marvelís market value ballooned to $3 bil. Perelman took advantage of the companyís inflated valuation by selling junk bonds, pocketing $500 mil., while Marvelís debt rose to $600 mil. And then the comic-book & trading-card markets collapsed. Corp. raider Carl Icahn sank a fortune into Marvelís bonds in an effort to wrest away control of Marvel. As the competing tycoons went head-to-head, Ike Perlmutter & Avi Arad, two entrepreneurs who ran Toy Biz, planed to take control themselves. Perelman declared bankruptcy, & the comic wars began. Illustrated.
