BUT WHAT IF?
If Darkwing Duck wave 2 had made it into production then fans of Disney related superheroes would have rushed out to toy stores in order to get their hands on them, which would have instantly made the line a huge seller! This would have resulted in a third, fourth and fifth wave of figures reaching shelves within months of each other and after selling millions of units would have convinced Disney that backing superheroes was the way forward! Disney would have then looked at the leading superhero-related companies doing business at that time and with Time Warner already owning DC Comics, Disney would have bought Marvel Comics and...
Oh, wait, Disney did eventually buy Marvel Comics.
