Marvel HQ going to rebrand as Super Hungama.

Pathetic move. The Walt Disney Company needs to pay attention to what former Star team is doing to their tv channels in this country. They are changing a beautiful brand like Marvel to some odd name like Super Hungama. Dunno why a revamping is required when the channel is serving it's target audience. This is one of the rare channel watched by grown ups.
