    A scene that depicts women on the auction block apparently has no place in a Disneyland ride, even if the attraction is meant to depict the violence, debauchery and misogyny of a pirate’s life.

    When the Walt Disney Co. wrote a check for more than $4 billion in 2009 to acquire Marvel Entertainment Inc., Disney fans predicted a massive invasion of superheroes at the company’s Anaheim resort.
