In the world of comic books, henchmen beelining straight into a hero's gloved fists in a straight and orderly line usually results in a quick victory festooned with bam and thok sound effects. In MOBAs, it's a happy little train of gold and XP. As reported by MMO Culture (via GameSpy), Disney Interactive Studios wants the Marvel Universe's next nemesis to be the almighty lane creep, as it formalized a contract today with Korean developer Smilegate for the creation of a MOBA featuring Marvel's country-sized cast of characters.

Disney Universe has just been announced by, well, Disney. It's set to be a multiplayer action-adventure game inspired by all kinds of Disney/Pixar stuff and, if the glimpses of costume design/avatar anatomy are anything to go by, PS3's LittleBigPlanet. Expect DLC aplenty.
