The Virgin Group, owned by business tycoon Richard Branson has his hands in everything. His Virgin trademark logo is the biggest and most profitable brand to come out of the UK. Branson who is the arch enemy of another business tycoon, Donald Trump (which is pretty much Trump being jealous of Branson being more successful, in every which way). Branson's two big money making ventures were Virgin Atlantic Airways and Virgin Records (bought by EMI in '92). But Branson really does have his hands in everything. He's got Virgin Mobile, Virgin Games, Virgin Drinks, Virgin Media, Virgin Radio, Virgin Comics, the list goes on. This guy has is smart, he's never satisfied with having enough money, he wants more.

Virgin Comics is one of his most recent ventures. In 2006 Virgin Comics is born. Partnering with Deepak Chopra they plan to capitalize on the growing Asian market, mostly India. Chopra who's been capitalizing on his own culture predicts that within the next decade the market in India will boom. So establishing him now is a good business move, cause if and when it does boom Virgin Comics will have been established for sometime now and will reap in the benefits, and eventually will become a huge entity in India. Especially since Virgin Comics is the celebrities comic company. The company has celebrities such as Guy Ritchie, John Woo, Jenna Jameson, Nicolas Cage, Ed Burns, and Deepak Chopra pumping out comic books. Pretty soon any celebrity that was a comic book fan growing up will release a comic book based on their ideas. And people will buy it, because we worship celebrities. And Branson and Chopra will be laughing all the way to the bank.
