I continue to think that Time Warner is a great way to play the comic book cycle. Disney's (DIS) Marvel unit has had key success with several of its properties. DC Comics is now following close behind and will see several of its characters join forces in 2016's Batman vs. Superman.

In the cosmic battle between DC and Marvel Comics, Time Warner's DC currently seems to hold the advantage over Disney's Marvel. DC Comics also does not have the same character problem as Marvel does. As I have discussed before, Marvel licensed out several of its most known characters (Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, X-Men) to other studios and now sees minimal revenue impact from those key names. Time Warner shares should see a boost if shows like iZombie, Gotham, and The Flash see full seasons and renewals.
