All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z

 ANOZ   (Marvel, 2006)

™ and © Marvel Characters, Inc.

With a library of over 10,000 costumed characters, it would take a thousand issues or more to cover them all in depth. This 2006 Official Handbook extends its coverage to Marvel’s main characters, teams, objects, events and places, including past, future, and alternate Earths. Each subject entry features a portrait of the character, vital statistics, full origin and powers, and a seven-point Power Grid grading that character on everything from Intelligence and Strength to Energy Projection and Fighting Skills. Who’s stronger? Who’s faster? Who has the best wisecracks? It’s all here in dizzying detail.

With twelve-issues and very tiny type to work with, this series is meant to cover everything you need to know about the current Marvel Universe.
