The OHOTMU Master List (also Files, Guidebooks, and Related Works)

This is a complete list of all entries in the various Handbooks, Files Books, and Guidebooks. As this is a masive amount of information well beyond what can easily be captured onsite with its character limits of just over 64K per post, the Master List is now in a Google document that can be viewed in the link below. Additions and corrections welcomed and encouraged. Apologies for this extra step to view, but the list was becoming a huge pain to keep up to date on site.

A couple of minor mistakes I spotted:

BDead: Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Book of The BDead 2004

DP7 - DP7Del: Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Deluxe Edition

Sidney: Thx. I made the corrections. The Book of the Dead typo probably happened because my original abbreviation was Dead, but then I realized that people might think that referred to the Deadpool book, so I did a bulk find and replace.

Stuart: Glad you like the new list.

I didn't know how the number and letter headers were going to look until I first did a preview. My gut just said to make them "+2". Very happy with the result.

More changes to come but unless I go ahead with hyperlinking all the cross-references, the additional changes probably won't affect the new design much. Rather they will be more along the lines of adding more stuff like the encyclopedia appendices, i.e. stuff that's nice to have but not as important as the newer handbooks.

Thx! And oops; well, at least it was a good test of the intuitiveness of that abbreviation. I've fixed that now.

I've also now added the text sections in Contest of Champions to the above. As I've mentioned in other threads I consider those text pieces to be the true start what soon because the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe and therefore those capsule entries deserve a spot above.

That's actually something I've been meaning to run by people: given that there's also the sister list, the Sightings Outside the Handbooks list, I wanted to get a consensus on people's thoughts on the degree to which there should or should not be overlap betweenn the two lists. What are people's thoughts on this? I won't take anyone out of course regardless of where things land.

Glad you like it. Luckily I had all of Eric's work as a starting point, but definitely all the reformatting (including the look, the cross-references, and of course the research of what names characters were under in a given entry plus determining all the shared entries) took many hours. But I'm not complaining because seeing it all come together has made it worth it.

I'd include them. The Sightings Outside thread allows people to easily learn about entries that appear other than the handbooks, but I feel the Master List should include all entries, so that people can easily find every place a person has had any type of entry.

I certainly agree, at least in terms of unique entries like those listed. Listing reprints is redundant, I think, but when an entry provides new information, I think it should be here.




Andy E. Nystrom

Sep 17, 2011, 11:19 pm


Okay. I'll add those in the next couple of days since there seems to be some interest there.

Two more questions: As noted above, some select cross-references (e.g. Beetle and Ariel) are hyperlinked. Would people find it useful for me to hyperlink all the cross-references, or is that more, nice but not terribly useful? I can do it easily enough, but since it's a time investment (every entry being linked to will need to have a unique link name I'll need to keep track of) I thought I'd check first.

Another idea I wanted to run by people, and I realize that this would be a different system than the current Handbooks, is to re-alphabetize the entries in such a way to ignore hyphens, spaces, and apostrophes. As things currently stand, for example, Star-Lord and Starlord wind up in different places alphabetically due to the hyphen. My thought is that there would be less risk of confusion if Star-Lord, Starlord, and a hypothetical future character named Star Lord (and perhaps a future character name S'tarlord) were all placed in the same location alphabetically. What are people's thoughts on alphabetization that ignores hyphens and spaces?

If it were me, I would ignore hyphens and spaces, since I do the same with my comic collection. To me, it doesn't make sense for Star-Dancer to be after Star Wauugh!, and Starblast to be after both.

I also found another error:
Brothers Grimm (Nathan Dolly/Mister Doll) Orig#2 App as MD; Orig #8 App as BG


The Brothers Grimm's entry was actually in #2 while Mister Doll's was in #8.




Andy E. Nystrom

I've just made two more sets of additions.

The first: I've added the Appendix from the Spider-Man Encyclopedia (took the better part of the day to do that).

The other set of additions... well those are a bit more unusual. I think I'll make a game out of it. First person to figure it, I'll send a No-Prize to in PM (do make your guesses here). If you want a clue, ask a question that can be answered yes or no (ask here again). Don't ask which entries have the new additions, but okay to ask if one of the new entries appears under A'askvarii, since that's something I can answer yes or no to.

Anti-Venom (Venom/Eddie Brock) U89 #8 3, Mas #10 2, ME1 1, ME4S 3, SpM04 2 as Venom; BND #1 3, Hardc #14 4, HeroH 1/3 as AV

I know you had a lot to do, and it can be forgiven, but I think you should refrain from using abbreviations for the actual entry name. Unless the article is actually "AV" rather than "Anti-Venom" I think you should be clear. But that's just my exacting nature.

Here's the problem: the more information there is, the slower it takes to save. Now I could split the post into two posts as Eric used to do, basically writing over my second post. But then I don't think the hyperlinks that let you jump to particular letters of the alphabet will work in the second post (and I'm still also hoping to add in hyperlinks to cross-references, which will also take up space, albeit space invisible to the reader). I plan to add a lot more stuff to make it as complete as possible, but I don't want to crash the page in the process. So I'm sacrificing a small amount of clarity (and I think it's still pretty clear) to be as complete as possible without crashing the post.

So, here's what's known so far re: the mystery additions contest:

Mostly yes to the entries being from a Handbook, but there's a caveat of some sort
No to any of the entries being updates of previous entries.

The contest from the previous page seems to died off so I'll reveal the caveat I referred to on the previous page. If there's been no more guesses (either for clues or the for answer) by Monday I'll just reveal it then, but there's something fun about the answer in my mind so I want to keep it going a little longer.

The caveat was that in terms if it being <b>a</b> Handbook. The new set of additions gathered info from multiple Handbooks. The Handbooks are all proper Handbooks though.

So to summarize:
There's a mystery set of additions.
The additions are not anything that was previously on Eric's version of the list nor anything I've announced by name.
They are from multiple Handbooks but can be seen as a set of some sort.
None of them are updates of previous entries.

Okay to ask for clues that can be answered yes or no or of course to guess the answer. Winner will get a no-prize from me.

Oh, ah well. I probably helped speed things along. I was concerned that the caveat reference might mislead people into thinking it was a single volume that has elements of a Handbook but isn't (like Academy X or Encyclopaedia Mythologia, either of which may or may not be part of this set but definitely aren't by themselves if they are).

No, the additions are from earlier than the past year. This are still some stuff from the past year I hope to add later, such as the Appendix from Thor: Asgard's Avenger, but that's still to come.

Actually the hardcovers started in 2008. I'd going to make an assumption about the spirit of your question and answer the pre-hardcover question as opposed to the date question and treat your date question as 2004-2007, which might yield the same results as the 2004-2006 range but then again it might not: Yes.

No one seemed to object to my idea of re-alphabetizing to ignore hyphens, spaces, and apostrophes and one person liked the idea so will start on that.

Even if people are still guessing, will end the contest this coming Monday rain or shine as I think it's run its course. I'll throw in a big clue Thurs or Fri (I want to allow discussion of Wednesday's FF Handbook to breathe before I toss in my biggest clue, as that's will be the more important discussion topic at that time).




Andy E. Nystrom

Sep 27, 2011, 10:25 pm


Now updated to include the Fantastic Four Encyclopedia. I predict that more than a couple of the entries I added for the first time today will reappear in tomorrow's Handbook.

Also, I re-alphabetized the entries according to the new system (ignoring spaces, hyphens, apostrophes). Unfortunately my eyes tend to glaze over if I look at 1000s of entries at once. If you notice any alphabetizing error, even ones that were incorrect even with the old system, let me know and will fix.




Andy E. Nystrom

Sep 30, 2011, 08:13 am


Now includes the new FF and A-Z tpb Handbooks.

In the latter case, I eye-balled the sizes. If anyone actually wants to take a ruler and get a more accurate "page count", I'll defer to ther figures, but it should be pretty close. For entries less than 1/6 of a page I used "capsule".

Here's the big clue I was promising with the contest. All the entries I added as part of that contest have never been seen before or since in any Handbook. Prior to the contest I did add a similar wave of entries and one of those has another entry that Eric put in, but the ones in the parameters of the contest are strictly one-shot deals.

We have a winner! Your no-prize will arrive shortly after I send this.

Eric had previously added the Mark Gruenwald entry from the hardcover, thus setting a precedent. So when I was overhauling the Master List it made sense to add the similar material from the Deluxe Edition, which I did at that stage. But if I was going to add the original creative team entries, I needed to add the modern team to be consistent. But those required a bit of hunting down since there's no numerical order to the later ones except the Update series, and I wanted to get the overhauled list sooner than later, plus I had hit upon the contest idea.

I didn't announce previously that I had added the Deluxe entries because I knew the contest was coming and didn't want to make the contest too easy. Nor did I want to raise questions as to why the Deluxe team was added while the modern team wasn't, particularly since that was always going to be a temporary situation.

One nice outcome of this is that Eric, who created the original list, is now himself in the list!




Andy E. Nystrom

You may have found the old version which did close once the new one became live. Part of the reason was that you can't move posts within a thread, and we wanted the list itself to be at the top of the thread. Also, you'll recall that the original thread devoted to Handbook-like stuff that isn't official accidentally got erased and then had to be rebuilt. So closing threads and starting new ones instead of creating new threads and merging them with the old eliminates the risk of another accidental deletion. The latter was also the reason that I closed Eric's old version of this thread (that and he did things a bit differently than me, so this preserves his material for archive reasons).

The Master List has been updated to include the Marvel Knights Encyclopedia's Appendix. I don't have v1 but I think coverage of the 6-volume official encyclopedia series is now complete. The X-Man volume doesn't have an Appendix and to my knowledge there's no entries at all in the Hulk volume.

Given the amount of evidence that Conan's Marvel adventures take place in 616 (e.g. the Marvel Team-Up issue involving Red Sonja), I decided to add Conan's Handbook to the mix.

I'm on the fence re: the Transformers Universe books. Marvel unfortunately did a 180 and went from treating Transformers as part of the Marvel Universe to treating them as not. What are people's thoughts on including them?

Conan (and Kull) are in 616 - Marvel Saga included them, and we've got multiple cases of Conan characters turning up in modern day 616 by dint of simply surviving through the ages (e.g. not time travel, which we'd have to discount as proof because you can go sideways into parallel worlds). Transformers are not 616 - there's some counterparts to regular Marvel characters in the Transformers timelines, but that's something different.

Oh Definitely it's appreciated!

Given the amount of evidence that Conan's Marvel adventures take place in 616 (e.g. the Marvel Team-Up issue involving Red Sonja), I decided to add Conan's Handbook to the mix.

I'm on the fence re: the Transformers Universe books. Marvel unfortunately did a 180 and went from treating Transformers as part of the Marvel Universe to treating them as not. What are people's thoughts on including them?

You have a handbooks on alternate dimensions an Age of Apocalypse, even though they are not 616 the Transformers/GI Joe Universe has a semi-official designation in the Marvel Multiverse so it could go either way. I would definitely add the Conan one though.

That's fair. I figured I was on pretty secure ground with Conan, which is why I went ahead and added his Handbook, but Transformers I thought I'd better ask. I'd wager that the early creative teams probably thought they were writing/drawing/etc 616 adventures in those earliest issues but obviously plans change. Mind you there's plenty of non-616 characters in the various Handbooks but obviously a line has to be drawn somewhere or this list could start to get a bit absurd.

Don't think this list is complete enough? Well, how's this for additions:
Agent X#1
Defenders: Strange Heroes
Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe tpb #2 (update section)
X-Factor#65-66
X-Force#1 & 6

Note that trying to determine "page count" for the tpb update section is more than a little tricky. If anyone thinks they have more accurate measurements, I'll take them at their word and adjust accordingly.

I think unfortunately they've been taken down. I did suggest to Stuart when I took over the list that they be removed from that entry for that reason but he wanted them to stay for historical reasons. Plus they may reappear at some point. I should add a note to that effect in the abbreviations. For that reason, for those characters who've had multiple names, the entry names indicated are educated guesses based on them coming out around the time of the Encyclopedias.

Thank you, RVcousin. I'm doing the updates now. Will treat Holocaust as 616 unless I hear an official note otherwise since there doesn't seem to be any other Age of Apocalypse references in the Stryfe book.

Are the MacTaggert and Gamemaster typos in the original entries? Should be MacTaggart and Gamesmaster. If so will note that in the Master List.

Gamesmaster was a typo on the list, but it was spelled Mactaggert in the book.

Also, later today when I get home from work, I will submit the content list for Spider-Man Unmasked.

It's the only place where X-Cutioner and the Externals were really profiled for the moment.


The X-Cutioner got a profile in last year's X-Men: Earth's Mutant Heroes Handbook.

One question about Spider-Man Unmasked: which Rose is covered in that entry? By 1996 I think there were already a few of them. Also, does Harry Osborn have two entries or is someone else supposed to be Green Goblin II in that book? And can I assume that the Hobgoblin covered is Macendale? Thx in advance.

That`s three questions. [img]file:///C:\Users\Andy\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.gif[/img]
In order:

Most of the entry did cover Richard Fisk, although it did mention the current Rose, whose identity was unrevealed at the time.

Yes, Harry did have two entries.

The Hodgoblin entry did mention Macendale`s time as the vilain, but most of the entry covered the original, whose ID was also unrevealed at the time.

Also, I don't think the first Iron Manual and the Punisher Armory belong on this list. Both are about Tony Stark and Frank Castle (respectively) musing about the weapons, tools, and methods they use. The style they're done in isn't close to what is seen in the Files books.

I've fixed those errors. If the weapons are divided into separate listings I'll allow them. OHOTMU#15 pretty much guaranteed that that particular door will always be open.

The following entries are also accompanied by facing full-page portraits: Mother Askani, Apocalypse, Rachel Summers, Askani Sisterhood, Blaquesmith, Unit: Dayspring, Ch'Vayre, Turin, Askani'son, Tetherblood, Stryfe, Zero.

Actually, looking it over again, it's more like Daegon and Wysp share a single 2-page entry.
All-in-all a somewhat odd volume. Sort of files-ish, definitely NOT a handbook—maybe "primer" would be the most apt term. I haven't read it yet, nor am I familiar with the original Askani storyline.

Lots of changes:

Update entries in A-Z softcover added (as usual, "page count" open to interpretation; will be happy to adjust if anyone wants to take a ruler to all the updates)

Entries in the Mystic Arcana hardcover but not the Mystic Arcana handbook added

Knights of Pendragon #14 added

Entries previously unlisted from New Avengers #1 Director's Cut added

Non-existent 1-page solo entries for U-Foes members in New Avengers: Most Wanted removed (Eric apparently confused this with the Director's Cut, which apparently does have 1/5 page entries on the individual U-Foes members; in Most Wanted there's a group entry instead).

I don't have that trade but my understanding is a number of characters have minor updating in that book but many do not. If enough of the entries have some changes, I can try to track down a copy and list the characters therein. If I include Voyant, I pretty much also have to include everyone else with comparable amounts of updating.

Added softcover#4 plus Battletide#1. Tomorrow I'll most likely get to some more fun additions!

Apr 25, 2012, 07:22 pm


Sorry, I was hoping to add the new material the same day Avengers Roll Call came out, but as noted in another thread the dastardly Diamond thwarted my plans. I like to be surprised in terms of who is in the issue so while I could get the page count from the other thread, I'll wait instead until I have the issue in hand to do so. Hope everyone understands. I'm going to Toronto in June so more than likely if I don't have the issue beforehand I'll get it there and update the list upon my return.

Finally got in Avengers Roll Call. Master List now updated accordingly.

Jun 4, 2012, 02:36 pm

Added in softcover #5 plus the Genealogy sub-entry from the first series. As always the small updates are tricky to measure and will be happy to consider others' measurements.

Still to come:
The remaining hardcover appendices, including the rest of the Earths
Capsule sub-entries 2007-onward, such as the individual demons listed under Demons
I also want to go through Deluxe again and see if any equipment's missing.
The "Files" books mentioned by rvcousin on page 3 that haven't yet been catalogued (will need to know the contents/page count)

Any other thoughts of material that still needs to be catalogued?

Iron Manual 1 (i.e. the 1990s one), Punisher Armory 1-10, Wolverine Encyclopedia 1-2 (in the unlikely event that a legal copy of the material planned for 3 is out there, I'd love to include that too, but that's most likely wishful thinking), Beast Files from Marvel Vision

Yes, they were published and reprinted in that order, but Magneto was in #7and Emplate was in #9.
You can either consider the entries with characters/teams in () as one or as separate entries (example : The Original X-Men one global entry or 5 individual entries. For me it's 5 individual entries).

More historical text from Comixfan:

Jul 13, 2012, 05:49 pm

It's time to (try to) continue with the Iron Manual.
For this one, it's very hard to consider entries or not, just like the Marvel tarot. For me it's just Iron Man Armor (32 pages), but here is the details (if I don't mention the page count, then it's one page). Since there is no really entry names here are the ones given directly by Eliot R. Brown in his blog :

Major Head Sub-Assembly
Head#2, IM mod I
Eyepiece Simulated View
Right Palm Repulsor
Tessellation Failure
Average Suit Tile Arrangement
EMP Test Stand
General Arrangement Suit Mod IX (2 pages)
Particle Beam Weapons
Variable Geometry Wind Tunnel
Satellite Office (2 pages)
I called him HOMER
Mark III, Mod I
FOD (Foreign Object Damage)
Retreat
MID IX Boot Display
Ex-Atmosphere Project
Variable Threat Response Battle Suit Mod XI-Mk I
Titanic Wheelhouse – Trip 101
Stealth Suit
Laser Guided Munitions
Minigun Mod I MK I
Gauntlet Mini Cannon MOD III – MK I
Final Assembly Tank (2 pages)
Suit Maturation (2 pages)
Space Travel (2 pages)
Suite Support Vehicle Mod I

Hope it's understandable and you can consult Brown's blog for more details : http://www.eliotrbrown.com/wp/iron-manual.html

I'll take care of all these in a couple weeks but have been meaning to ask: is this kind of like a Deluxe Edition entry like Circus of Crime, where there's a broad entry with a bit of history about the broad entry, and then smaller sub-entries within, so about 1/3 of a page per sub-entry? If so, once my schedule clears up I'll treat them like I would the other sub-entries.

In the meantime, adding the kid-friendly entries from Marvel Super-Heroes Magazine. I'll tackle the rest in a couple weeks.

It is not necessary to be sorry, Andy, you do a magnificent work for us all and I will never stop to thank you for it.

Two things, for now:
1) the list ends now "Tiamat", I hope you will be able to fix the list until the Z because I really love and enjoy to look at it every day

2) I have all the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Deluxe Edition Trade Paperbacks" and there are other updated entries:
a) Angel (with the right costume) on #1
b) Cyclops (with the right costume) on #2
c) Hawkeye (with the right costume) on #3
d) Nomad (with another costume) on #5
e) Wonder Man (with the new costume) on #8

other 2 little things about the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Deluxe Edition Trade Paperbacks":
- the entry about the Masters of Evil, on the Deluxe Edition #8, had the two Baron Zemo's heads wrongly exchanged; the Trade Paperback fixed it putting the two heads on the right places on #4
- on the Trade Paperbacks sometimes Marvel omitted some entries existing in the Deluxe Edition; the first two ones omitted are the entries of Arnim Zola and Cloud (nebula); I will write soon to add other things...

Okay. this is very strange. In both cases I used ctrl-A to select the whole document before copying and pasting. With try this again and check carefully to see if the problem happens right away or if some of the list disappears some time after saving.

I do know my computer has had memory dump issues of late. Hopefully that's just a coincidence.

EDIT: Just did another copy/paste. Right now the list goes to Z. If you notice any letter cut-off now it's happening after the fact.

I am sorry but I am going crazy but your list ends with "Rhz’Arr ME5MK App" now...
If you say you see that the list goes to Z, how is it possible that it ends before now? I really can't understand why this is happening.
I hope you can fix the problem and I am sorry for the disturb you are having... and I really hope we don't lose the important work you did.

It was definitely up to Z after I initially saved it, which means the issue is on Comixfan's end and not my end, making it beyond my ability to fix. Will try to find out who the right people are to look into this. The list as a whole is on my computer so as long as my own unrelated computer issues don't fry my hard drive I can retrieve the info. Will save an extra copy on my external hard drive to be safe.

EDIT: I just sent a message off to the site's Editor in Chief. I won't try to paste the list again just yet because of the time delay before the cutting off occurs, and because I want the tech people to be able to see what the problem is. Once I get some answers will make another attempt to paste it in.

Baxter Building
Orig #2 App, Orig #4 2 as Fantastic Four Headquarters, ME6FF 1

because the entry: "Fantastic Four Headquarters" on the #4 of the Original series talks about the original Baxter Building

I just followed up by way of a different means since I realized too late that the first means might not get his attention. Will follow up again in a week if I haven't heard anything.

Groupings like these and weapons are tricky because sometimes they're divided up, sometimes not and they can be a bit of a headache determining if two similar entries are quite the same focus or not. Generally I tend to treat them as the item equivalent of teams vs individuals so in this instance FF HQ would be the "team" and Baxter Building would be the "individual". Having said that, once the current mess is taken care of will look at the FF HQ entry and see if a Baxter Building sub-entry can logically be derived from that, without opening up a larger can of worms in the process.


mal32
Aug 13, 2012, 03:06 am

You are right, Andy, if the "Fantastic Four headquarters" entry (on #4 of the Original series) talked also about other FF's headquarters it would be different, but Marvel talked only about the original Baxter Building (I checked it).
The important thing to remember is that their next headquarters, the Four Freedoms Plaza, first appeared in FF#289 (April, 1986) and OHotMU first series #4 is dated April, 1983, so they could talk only about the first Baxter Building.

About the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Deluxe Edition Trade Paperbacks (1986)" I verified everything.
In addition to the updaptes you already listed in your list, under the "Dtpb" voice, there are also the following things to add, if possible:

Marvel omitted, on the Trade Paperbacks, the following ones existing on the Deluxe Edition:
Arnim Zola on #1
Cloud (Nebula) on #2
Kraven on #4
Primus on #5
Sin Eater on #6
Tower on #7
appendix: Alien Races on #8
Ghaur on #9

Marvel changed, on the Trade Paperbacks, also the following ones:

Masters of Evil on #4 - a minor fix: the original entry, on the Deluxe Edition #8, had the two Baron Zemo's heads wrongly exchanged; the Trade Paperback fixed it putting the two heads on the right places on #4
Nomad on#5
Ghost Rider (western) changed to Phantom Rider on #5 (to avoid confusion with Johnny Blaze, I presume)
Red Ronin on #6
Wonder Man on #8


About the 2 following ones Marvel omitted, on the Trade Paperbacks, the original entries about the living ones and they printed only the dead ones entries (Marvel originally printed 2 entries about each character on the Deluxe Editions):
Blackout omitted on #1 and printed only in #8
Spymaster omitted in #6 and printed only in #10

I would like to add a little information:
Marvel reprinted almost all the updated entries from the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Deluxe Edition Trade Paperbacks" (1986) at the end of the "Essential Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Update 89" (2006), in black and white, as a bonus.
The funny thing is they made a little mistake: on the Essential they reprinted also the entry of Angel (Warren Worthington III) but instead of the updated one with the right costume, they reprinted the wrong one from #1 of the Deluxe Edition...

Another little thing:
in the list you wrote this:
Young Allies (WW2) GAge App, Hardc #13 1
Young Allies (Counter-Earth) ANew #12 1

but the entry about the Young Allies on the Hardcover #13 doesn't talk about the World War II ones, it talks only about the Counter-Earth ones

so I think it would be better write this, in the list, if possible:
Young Allies (WW2) GAge App
Young Allies (Counter-Earth) ANew #12 1, Hardc #13 1

Getting caught up on these. Still need the following information regarding the Beast Files entry on the X-Men, which apparently had info on individual members:

First here's the original Marvel Vision post

Hi guys,
I was a little bit busy but here we go with the Beast Files first :
Each entries are two pages. It was published in Marvel Vision from #5 to #30 (with the exception of the #8) and reprinted in Wolverine : Weapon X Files TPB in the following order :
Genesis A.K.A. Tolliver
Holocaust / Nemesis
Magneto
Emplate
The Original X-Men (Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel, Beast)
Wolverine / Weapon X
Professor X / Onslaught
Operation : Zero Tolerance (Humanity's Last Stand/Friends of Humanity, Senator Robert Kelly, Trask, Sentinels, Bastion)
Colossus
Spider-Man
Mister Sinister / Essex
Dark Beast
Rogue
Cable
Apocalypse
Henchmen (Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, Dark Riders, Marauders, Nasty Boys, MLF, Press Gang, Upstarts, Acolytes)
Havok
Storm
Nightcrawler
Juggernaut
Quicksilver
Captain America
Hulk
Marrow
Fantastic Four



Then my earlier question

  Andy E. Nystrom wrote:

I'll take care of all these in a couple weeks but have been meaning to ask: is this kind of like a Deluxe Edition entry like Circus of Crime, where there's a broad entry with a bit of history about the broad entry, and then smaller sub-entries within, so about 1/3 of a page per sub-entry?

I admit I find the X-Men sub-universe a bit confusing (it's only a matter of time before the Iceman of Earth-295 is revealed to actually be the small intestine of the Colossus of Earth-616 or some such thing) so more questions:
1. Is the Holocaust/Nemesis entry a case of two characters sharing the same entry? That was my original thought but then the Mr Sinister entry threw me off (see below)
2. Is the "Weapon X" in "Wolverine / Weapon X" the team or the alias of Wolverine?
3. Does the "Professor X / Onslaught" entry teat Onslaught as an alias of Prof X (ie his evil self) or as two characters sharing the same entry?
4.Are the individual Operation: Zero Tolerance characters given appendix style entries within the larger entry?
5. Can I assume that Essex refers to Mister Sinister himself and not a separate character sharing the entry?
6. Are the individual Henchmen given Appendix style entries within the larger entry?

On another note: is the Deathlok in Wolverine Encyclopedia #1 Manning?
While it's disappointing that the final volume of the Wolverine Encyclopedia never got published, I have to admit it's amusing that as a result there's an entry for Wolverine as Patch in that series but not for one for him as Wolverine.




Andy E. Nystrom

Oct 18, 2012, 04:20 pm


Added Fear Itself, Marvel Super-Heroes #3 from the Sightings thread. Added Marvel Vision (except those that may have sub-entries; awaiting clarification on those). Added the Wolverine Encyclopedia stuff. Holding off on the Iron Manual and Punisher Armory entries as I decide how best to catalogue those (though they will appear at some point). Ditto the Deluxe trade info. Amended Baxter Building and Young Allies (the latter error was a carry-over from the older version of the Master List).

Wait until you see what's next. I'll give everyone a hint: they've been added in the past while in appendices (while Eric was in charge of the list) but not when they've been in the body, so the rest probably ought to be added to be consistent.




Andy E. Nystrom

Oct 18, 2012, 08:57 pm


Okay, I've now added the "headshots" type sub-entries and all similar entries from the original edition and will soon be doing the same for later volumes. I felt that was important because quite a few characters only get their due in the headshots, or only get their due in a particular incarnation (the headshots are for example the closest we have for an Ant-Man [Henry Pym] entry, while his other aliases have gotten their due in regular or Appendix entries).

Sadly, I think the original edition has now been catalogued for anything that could be considered an entry or sub-entry. If anyone is eagle eyed to spot anything else from that edition that could be added (or if you notice I've missed an entry or two), let me know. But I think that's it for the original series!

X-Men: Earth’s Mutant Heroes: Neo and Vaklyrior headshots, Warpies capsule entries




Andy E. Nystrom

Oct 21, 2012, 03:41 pm


Newest additions:
Wolverine 2004: added in headshots from Alpha Flight, Madripoor. Reavers, Weapon X
Mighty Avengers: Most Wanted: added headshots from Yakuza
Gamma Files: added capsule entries from Gamma Mutates, headshots form Initiative, Renegades, Tribbitites, Changelings
Messiah Complex: added headshots from Exiles et al, Marauders, New X-Men, Savage Land Mutates, Shi’ar, Starjammers, SWORD, X-Cell, X-Men Update

Lots of characters added for the first time. If you notice any errors/things you think need clarification, let me know.

One thing I'm thinking of doing is adding in alter egos even for those characters who don't share their code name with anyone. The reason is twofold: to ensure I haven't overlooked any cases where two or more people share the same name (or conversely to ensure the same character isn't on the list twice) and also so the info is handy when adding in new stuff, if I'm not sure if it's the same person as someone already listed. However, that is a huge project in of itself, so before I embark on this, is this an addition people would find helpful?

About: "Major Victory (Vance Astro)",
I think we could add also:
U89 #1 2

Thank you, Mal. I decided to treat it as a shared entry (so U89 #1 2 w/the other character), albeit a highly unusual instance of one given that prior to the Marvel Two-in-One story they were in fact the same person.

Other changes
Vampires: Headshots from Silvereye added
X-Men 2005: Headshots from X-Men added
Marvel Zombies: Capsule sub-entries from Angels and headshots from Darkhold and Demons from added

1. It is an entry for the character who was originally known as Nemesis and then "reborn" as Holocaust.
2. The alias.
3. The entry is primarily about Professor X and treats Onslaught as Xavier's "dark side".
4. See below.
5. Yes, Essex refers to Mister Sinister's original identity.
6. See below.
The Deathlok entry is for the Michael Collins incarnation who fought alongside Wolverine against MechaDoom.

Regarding #4, #6, and your earlier question: The group entries (Original X-Men, Operation: Zero Tolerance, Henchmen) are somewhat like the DE entries, but these are in a much more informal "Files" format and the sub-entries vary in length.

Also, the Operation: Zero Tolerance subentries should include Graydon Creed (situated between Humanity's Last Stand/Friends of Humanity and Senator Robert Kelly)

Okay: I've added in the remaining Marvel Visiion material and moved the one Deathlok listing. I've also added a notte at the top about the original Deluxe trades.

I've decided what I want to do about the pin-up matter. Details to come.

I'm also thinking it would be nice to do a DC version of this list with the same parameters, just the official stuff (Who's Who, Secret Files, JLA-Z), completely DK free. Is this something there would be interest in and if so, are people okay with see it here despite the Marvel focus of this section? I have editing privileges here but not in the DC threads. I know there's the Sightings thread but this would have a much narrower focus.

I've deleted the accidentally pased second Master List post but checked the first page and it's also the most current list. I'll correctly the Tode issue once I make a few more additions.

In terms of your list, would you be okay if instead I compiled things from scratch and then if there's anything missing you can suggest it? I realize you've already done all that work but my reasoning is two fold: I have a very specific way I was hoping to format such a list that might require a bit of reworking anyway. The other, perhaps more important reason is it gives me an excuse to look through my old Who's Who copies again page by page [img]file:///C:\Users\Andy\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image002.gif[/img]. Apparently there were plans to do a new Who's Who, with Robert Greenberger back on board, and the first issue was made, but then DC came up with Flashpoint so it didn't make sense to publish Who's Who books that would be quickly invalidated.

My suspicion is it was a page count issue; that is, the trades had fewer pages than needed to fill two issues each. Why they went with that page number is bigger mystery. Maybe to stay within a particular page printing rate? It's a shame that Jim Shooter stopped blogging because he might have known the answer to that.

At least the Essential volumes have all the entries; when updating the Master List I find them easier to flip through than the colour comics because there's only three volumes to grab.

Made the Fantastic Four and Brother Tode corrections. Today I added in headshots in the first hardcover. Of course there’s still lots of older material to cover, but I’m housecleaning as well and it seemed simplest to tackle a single volume of something today, so I only need the one volume out.




Andy E. Nystrom

Huh. They did change the art for Red Ronin. I didn't notice when I was looking through the books. It's strange, too. The art they replaced was better than the art they used instead, and the character's appearance didn't really change. I wonder if there was an issue with the artist at the time?

I'll include a few of your corrections before the end of the day (after I take care of a few household tasks).

In terms of updates in the original trades, I'm trying to decide how best to handle those so that's been on a backburner until I decide the best approach. The issue is that the trades are a huge can of worms and I'm trying to decide how much detail to go into without bogging down the introduction. If I gave the trades the space they truly deserve in the introduction, people might get frustrated and give up on the list before they even reach the letter A. So they updates will get covered once I decide what the right balance is in terms of detail vs. getting to the actual list sooner.

In the case of the omitted entries, that was a higher priority for two reasons: they don't take up that much space to detail, since for all those the change is exactly the same (i.e. the entries don't exist). Also, it's more critical that people know if a potentially desired entry is not in the volume.

Thank you for your kind replies, guys.

Another little thing for you, Andy: I don't want to annoy you but Marvel mispelled the name of Ereshkigal everywhere both in the Original series and in the Deluxe series. They called her Erishkigel but they corrected it in the Annunaki entry (I checked the name everywhere...)

so, instead of:
Erishkigel (Allatu) Orig #14 head, Hardc #1 caps
Erishkigel (Deviant) Orig #3 head, Del #3 head

it should be:
Ereshkigal (Allatu) Orig #14 head, Hardc #1 caps (mispelled Erishkigel)
Ereshkigal (Deviant) Orig #3 head, Del #3 head (Erishkigel)

ciao and thankyouverymuch ;-)

Andy E. Nystrom

Nov 4, 2012, 09:12 pm


Okay: A number of changes, mostly but not entirely to the introduction.

Added in most of the latest corrections (in the process merging the two places where Ereshkigal (Deviant) was listed); the Power Prism correction showed up too late for this batch but will make the next one
Corrected the Deluxe trade Headmen entry and sub-entries
Converted the Deluxe trades omissions section into a general Deluxe trade notes section
Added a new section clarifying the Essential trades
Updated the "Changes from the old version" list and added a much smaller "In progress" list

Is this something there would be interest in and if so, are people okay with see it here despite the Marvel focus of this section? I have editing privileges here but not in the DC threads. I know there's the Sightings thread but this would have a much narrower focus.

Fixed that and added in the characters from the Sightings thread. Ms. Marvel/Captain Marvel cross-references amended accordingly.

Mar 13, 2013, 07:30 pm


Headshots added from Cap: America's Avenger, FF50, Legacy 1960s; capsule entries added from Pets (during which I noticed that that Mole Man's Giganto needed to be separated from Namor's Gigantos)

Re: The OHOTMU Master List (also Files, Guidebooks, and Related Works)

Final historical text from Comixfan:

Andy E. Nystrom

Mar 23, 2013, 09:28 pm

Most of the headshots and some of the body shots (not all) from Hardcover #5 now added. Appendix to follow. Now 203 pages.

Lots of new additions. If you are aware of any listings that should be split off or merged, let me know.

I'm already aware that Jake Fury's listing needs fixing, but since this is a Phoenix-like situation where what was once believed to be one character is actually two, I'll have to look at each entry separately to make sure I get this one right. So that one I already know about and just need to do the research.




Andy E. Nystrom

Mar 25, 2013, 10:38 pm


Hardcover v5's alternate Earths now added. So for those of you who have been anxiously wondering when Earth-989192 would finally make the Master List, your wait is over!

207 pages now.




Andy E. Nystrom

Mar 26, 2013, 12:51 pm

Hardcover #6 material inc. headshots and appendices now added, making the list now 209 pages.




Andy E. Nystrom

Mar 29, 2013, 10:41 am


Hardcover #7 material inc. headshots and appendices now added, making the list now 212 pages.

Meant to mention previously: The Legion of the Unliving entry suggests that even when the body of the member isn't the actual person, the spirit may be (certainly the presence of Arno Stark suggests a temporal component). Therefore I've given the members depicted in headshots the benefit of the doubt and included them with the core character. If any are known to be imposters in both body AND mind, let me know and I'll separate those ones out.




Andy E. Nystrom

Mar 30, 2013, 01:02 pm


Headshots, Appendix entries, etc., Hardcover #8 now added (plus Marvel Superheroes Magazine #7), bringing the total to 214 pages. Quite a few additions, though many of these to characters who had one previous headshot "entry", thus not affecting line count as much.




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 12, 2013, 11:02 pm


Headshots and appendices (Olympians, politicians) from Hardcover #9 added, as well as material from Hulk #50. List now 216 pages.




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 13, 2013, 09:29 pm


Added in All New #10, Avengers Roll Call, and Hardcover #10, bringing the total to 221. I left out the Appendix in the Hardcover this time around because it's a list of book titles with descriptions and thus arguably closer to an Index than a Handbook section.

By the way, for entries that are within other entries (headshots, 1/4 page entries in the Deluxe Edition, etc.), do people find it easy enough to find the entries or would people like me to clarify what the core entries are? Keep in mind that this of course would make the list a lot bigger!




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 14, 2013, 02:48 pm


Added in Avengers Infinity Classic as per Sightings and headshots/capsule entries from Hardcover #11. Most additions this time around were to characters who had had a few entries before, so no effect on the page count this time around. As with Hardcover #10, the Appendix was book listings, so nothing that could easily be added in.

Headshots, capsule entries, Appendix material added, bringing the total page count to 223.

There's still a fair bit to be added in the future, but the well of material is admittedly slowly drying up. So, let me open it up:

1. What material not already in the Master List would you like to see included? I've been thinking of the Glossary, but that might be pushing it a bit, even though a few Glossary terms like Adamantium do have existing entries. But if there's an interest there for this or other ideas, I can add.

2. What would you like to see changed to make this easier to read?

Related to #2, though feel free to add suggestions beyond the below:

a. One person a while back stated a reference for no abbreviations related to a specific entry (e.g. not using SM as an abbreviation for Spider-Man or MM for Ms. Marvel). What are other people's thoughts?

b. I could add in alter egos to almost everyone. Would this make it less confusing for people, since characters do change names a lot or share names?

c. I can hyperlink cross-references so you jump straight to the actual entry info, so for example, the Ariel cross-reference takes you to Kitty Pryde. Would people like to see this?

d. For sub-entries (e.g. headshots and Deluxe Edition-style quarter-pagers) I can indicate what the core entry is. Would people like me to add that info?

Actually I have a fair bit of free time right now, so volunteering is good for my resume. I'm thinking long term, stuff that will keep the list active during the Handbook drought. Any changes I make will be gradually rolled out, and once the drought ends, will shift to low priority as I focus on getting the new entries in.




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 18, 2013, 11:58 am


Hardcover v13 added, bringing the total page count to 227. I finally figured out a way to bring in group shots with stats without being overly wordy (see the new bodyg abbreviation). Those will be added to such sub-entries the first 12 hardcovers later.




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 18, 2013, 09:00 pm

Apr 27, 2013, 08:45 pm


Headshots from Deadpool added. Hardcover #2 material that I previously put off until I decided what to do with it added. Softcover #2 material added. Now 233 pages.




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 28, 2013, 02:35 pm


A little bit of material from Hardcover #3 added, plus a lot from the Softcover, the latter mostly headshots from Daily Bugle and Demons; page count now 236. So if you've been wondering when Buttview would finally make it into the Master List, the wait is finally over!




Andy E. Nystrom

Apr 30, 2013, 02:43 pm


A fair bit of material (headshots, bodyshots, capsule entries) from A-Z softcover and a little bit from A-Z hardcover added, bringing the page count to 238. Fans of Elf with a Gun and Grasshopper will be glad to know I've expanded their coverage, clarifying the different versions.

2b. yes, having the alter egos added woul be better
2c. I don't think the hyperlinks are necessary

The usual additions from Hardcover #5 and Softcover #5 (the latter series I'm putting aside for now, though there is still material I can add later).

Also, Jungle Action #6 and 8 have a map of Wakanda which was obviously used as the basis for the maps in the original Handbooks (#8 has an additional page of text). These interesting Handbook precursors have been added.

Since the Dark Tower isn't connected to the Marvel universe, they would go here: http://www.comixfan.net/forums/showthread.php?t=47448

Andy E. Nystrom

Aug 29, 2013, 09:01 pm

Yes, that's the reason: they're licensed characters that are not part of the Marvel Universe. It would also be fun to include the GI Joe and Transformers books but they can't be included for the same reason. The Conan Handbook, however, makes it in because Conan's Marvel adventures take place in the 616 (main Marvel Earth) past.

The Star-Lord entry, however, was an oversight and will be folded in with the next set of additions.




Andy E. Nystrom

Thank you Mal. I've started working on additions to the Master List and hope to have them up tomorrow (Friday at the very latest). I'll correct that in the process. On a related note (and this also applies to the Sightings thread), unfortunately I've confirmed that jumping to a letter doesn't work in CX Pulp (that is, you can no longer click on the letter L and jump to the start of the entries beginning with the letter L). So anyone wanting to jump to a particularly place on the list will have to do a Find. I plan to start adding more alter egos and hopefully that will make it easier still to jump to a particular spot by doing a keyword search.

There are probably a number of ones out of chronology, particular 1990s Files books, but this one is actually in the correct order. Note that everything before the semi-colon is for listings as Shanna the She-Devil and everything after is for listings as Shanna. So that encyclopedia was the first of two instances of the "She-Devil part being dropped". Actually I'm not sure where I got the Wom7D 2 info as I don't own the trade, so that one may be placed incorrectly but the ME5MK is correct.

Correct, Eduardo. The Deluxe Edition speculated that pre-existing character Carson Collier Jr (not Coolier) might have been the Scourge
http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix2/enfo ... htm#Carson

Eugene Colorito is Eugene Patilio, a.k.a. Frog-Man. He's been given the wrong surname in a few comics, hence the confusion

Edward Marlowe is one of Dr. Faustus' aliases.

Right on Faustus and Froggy. And I did make a typo on Collier's name, plus Collier Jr. was previously mentioned as a Scourge alias. However, Scourge hadn't appeared at the time of the first Handbooks (nor would he have made #3 or 4 even had he been). So there was another time that "Carson Collier Jr." was used in error, in fact the Handbook definitely stated this character was Collier. Collier Jr. just can't get a break.

Added in alter egos from original series #5-6. Added in one other alter ego in quotes from an earlier issue that was later changed, plus two more from #5-6.

So do you know who "Carson Collier Jr." (error in original Handbooks), "Frank Schlichting" (probable changed premise), "Jack Smith" (probable changed premise) and "Merton Meke" (probable error) were?

Frank Schlichting was supposed to be the real name of Constrictor. his name was later changed to Frank Payne with Schlichting being an alias.

Yes, that one's correct. Anyone want to try for the other three? I suspect there will be some head slapping when the answer to the Collier one is revealed. It's one of those ones where when you consider who all is in original Handbooks #3-4, there is only one character who is likely to have been misnamed Carson Collier Jr.

Enforcer - Carson Collier, Jr.

Isbisa - Merton Meke

Yes to all three! So the Scourge answer was close as he claimed to have killed the Enforcer out of family shame.

Hello, I am always so sorry because I would like to be more active and present...
however I would like to tell 2 little things:

1) about:
Planes of Pohldark Del #11 App
I have controlled Doctor Strange vol2 #65 (June, 1984) and the right word is Pohldahk, Marvel wrote it in a wrong way in the Deluxe Edition.
I think we could write it this way:
Planes of Pohldahk (mispelled Planes of Pohldark) Del #11 App
so people can find it both ways

2) about the Atlantean Kormok, in the list he is listed this way:
Kormox Del #1 head
it should be:
Kormok Orig #1 head, Del #1 head

P.S. have everybody a beautiful 2014!

Thx. I made those corrections. Also, I'm alternating between adding in alter egos from the hardcovers and the originals and have now added v7-9 of the hardcovers. In the process I corrected misfiling of at least three sets of characters (Midnight/Wilde and Midnight Sun, Protector/Marsh and Protector/Rul, Red Queen/Grey-9575 and Red Queen/Pryor). I also did at least one merger (Elixir and Josh Foley). As I go through these I'll also be attempting to unravel the mess caused by the revelation that Jacob Fury was never Scorpio (whimper).

I was wondering if someone could tell me who the interior artist was for the Gamer's Handbook of the Marvel Universe 1990 volume 6? The handbook had some new art (like Alchemy and Malice), but the artist was never named, like in the other Gamer's Handbook issues (in those issues Jeff Butler, Mark Bagley or Mark Heike were credited). Only the cover artist was credited (Jeff Butler) and the "Marvel Bullpen" was credited for interior art. I'd really like to know if which artist was responsible for volume 6.

Also in the All-New OHOTMU A-Z hardcover vol. 11 the picture of Slayback's profile wasn't credited. I found out on the internet the picture was taken from the backboard of the Slayback action figure from Toy Biz (1994), but no reference of the artist. Does anybody know who the artist is?

A few quick things:

1) about Marrina, from Alpha Flight, in the first original O.H.oftheM.U. series and in the Deluxe Edition, Marvel made a mistake in the Alpha Flight profile:
in the Original #1 they called her Marina, in the Deluxe #1 Marinna,
you, Andy, noted the first mistake but not the second one, so we should write it this way, if you agree:

Marrina Orig #1 head (misspelled Marina); Orig #7 1, Del #1 head (mispelled Marinna), Del #8 3, Mas #19 2, AvLog, ME2X 1/3, Av04 head, Hardc #1 head, AvAs 2, AZsc #1 head

2) Tiamut Deadpool Team-Up v2 tpb ½ R
should be:
Tiamat Deadpool Team-Up v2 tpb ½ R

3) about X-Factor (X-Terminators)
also they were updated in the "Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe - Deluxe Edition Trade Paperbacks" #8, Marvel changed the image of Angel in the one when he was Death, before Archangel, and they updated the history taking off a few original images, so we should have this:

X-Factor (X-Terminators) Del #15 2, Dtpb #8 2, Cer 1, Team 1, ME4S App, Hardc #13 1

4) about Crusader (Marvel Boy imposter)
I think we could write it this way:
Crusader (Marvel Boy imposter) Del #18 3, Mas #7 2, ME6FF 2/3 [above entries include informations that actually refers also to Marvel Boy (Robert Grayson)]; FF50 ½
adding also the Deluxe informations to the ones alread written

Thank you for the suggestions,
I haven't tackled the alter egos for the Deluxe Edition yet, which is why I hadn't spotted the Marina/Marrina there yet, but will fix that accordingly, as well as #2 and 3.

In the case of Crusader, however, the encyclopedia entry actually uses both names in the heading, which is why that bit looks a bit odd.

Added in alter egos and Earth designations using info from hardcovers #10-11. Saving the list on this site is getting slower and slower (on my computer at home, 11 font Calibri it's 307 pages) so I might have to eventually split the list again into three sections instead of two. If the Handbooks do start up again (and that CBR article suggested an online version might be happening - see this thread http://www.cxpulp.com/showthread.php...ndbooks-Coming) I may have to start a new thread to allow for greater splitting.

Thank you for the most recent corrections and additions in the recent threads. Will update when I get a chance.

I should probably explain while I haven't been around for a while: there was a fire in my building that while bad in the room it started from was not unusual for my apartment complex; entirely the fault of the occupant. But this time asbestos was found, extreme reactions occurred and around 100 people throughout that wing including myself suddenly found themselves kicked out off their suites. So my energies have been focussed on survival, finding a new place, packing etc; I haven't even had much time to focus on a previously booked two-week trip that begins next week. I move into my new place in July and will have more time and energy to deal with less critical more fun stuff after that.

So the lists will be revised and expanded, just not as soon as I had planned. Sorry to go of topic, just wanted to let people know why I haven't be able to tackle list duties in the last little bit.

Just about to finally update these. On this particular point however, except in a small number of cases grandfathered in from Eric's days in charge of this list, we only list aliases where a character has had an entry under that name; it's not intended to be a comprehensive list. That's why Henry Pym's Ant-Man alias only appeared on the list when I started adding headshots even though he spent a lot of time as Ant-Man. Should even a capsule entry/headshot of Gremlin as Titanium Man appear, I would update the list accordingly.

Completed all the corrections aside from anything noted in the Sightings and Posters thread which I'll get too later. Also shuffled things around a bit to make the list three posts instead of two; CX Pulp can't handle larger posts the way Comixfan could, sadly. In fact even to edit this specific post there was a noticeable time delay. Eventually I might have to start a new Master List and split the list into 10 posts, but let's see how long CX Pulp can handle things the way they are.

I understand, Andy, but I see that in the Deluxe Edition #12 Kondrati Topolov is listed, under the Soviet Super-Soldiers profile, both as Gremlin and as Titanium Man in two separated headshots, so I think we could add the Titanium Man reference.

THOR ANNUAL #10 has a "pre-handbook" entry in a similar vein as those in Jungle Action #6 and 8: a 2-page Map of Asgard (virtually the same as the one that appeared later in the original handbook series) along with a one-page "Gazetteer of Asgard and Environs". I would ordinarily suggest placing these three issues in the pin-ups thread, but, since the maps reappeared virtually unchanged in the handbooks, I'm not sure.

I'm working on adding in the Avengers stuff and am almost done but wanted to toss out an idea and see what people think: the Master List is bursting at the seams and frankly saving the list each time characters etc are added is getting slower and slower (minutes to turn on the editor and minutes more to save). At the same time I know people don't like abbreviations that aren't in the key. So here's what I propose: for characters that have had entries under multiple names, I keep the "as ..." but in the parenthesis only leave in the real name/best descriptor.

Example:
Iron Man (Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark/Cobalt Man) CoC #1, Orig #1 head, Del #1 head, Del #6 4, U89 #4 3, Mas #15 2, AvLog, ME1 4, Av04 2, Av04 head, SWar ½, ML60 1, CivF 1, ML80 2, CWBat ½, MAvMW 8, WGam head, ANIr 11, Hardc #1 head, Hardc #5 head, Hardc #5 11, Hardc #6 head, Iron3 1, HeroH 1/3, SStor 1, ARCal 1 upd, AZsc #4 bodyg, AZsc #5 3/8, AvNow App as Iron Man; ANIr head, Hardc #11 head as Tony Stark; Hardc #12 head as Cobalt Man

Change to:
Iron Man (Anthony Edward Stark) CoC #1, Orig #1 head, Del #1 head, Del #6 4, U89 #4 3, Mas #15 2, AvLog, ME1 4, Av04 2, Av04 head, SWar ½, ML60 1, CivF 1, ML80 2, CWBat ½, MAvMW 8, WGam head, ANIr 11, Hardc #1 head, Hardc #5 head, Hardc #5 11, Hardc #6 head, Iron3 1, HeroH 1/3, SStor 1, ARCal 1 upd, AZsc #4 bodyg, AZsc #5 3/8, AvNow App as Iron Man; ANIr head, Hardc #11 head as Tony Stark; Hardc #12 head as Cobalt Man

Not ideal, I realize, but it will keep the list manageable a bit longer. What do people think?

It's not so much an aesthetic thing for me as recognizing that the list is a bit of a memory guzzler. The only other option I can think of is to close this thread and start a new one that is broken up into 10 sections instead of the current three. But I'm open to other suggestions for making the list better able to handle future additions.

I understand it is not an eastheti thing and I want only you do this magnificent thing without much stress so for me it is ok everything you will decide, Andy.

Two other things:
1) about Red Wolf:
there is this:
Red Wolf (William Talltrees) CoC #2, Orig #9 head, Orig #9 1, Del #10 1, U89 #6 2, Mas #21 2, AvLog, ANew #9 3, CWBat App, Hardc #5 head, Hardc #9 2
Red Wolf (Johnny Wakeley) MWes 1, Hardc #9 1

but in the Original #9 and the Deluxe #10 profile is for both Wakeley and Talltress so, I think, it is better to write it this way:
Red Wolf (William Talltrees) CoC #2; Orig #9 head; Orig #9 1, Del #10 1 w/Wakeley; U89 #6 2, Mas #21 2, AvLog, ANew #9 3, CWBat App, Hardc #5 head, Hardc #9 2
Red Wolf (Johnny Wakeley) Orig #9 1, Del #10 1 w/Talltress; MWes 1; Hardc #9 1
do you agree?

2) I wish a happy 2015 to EVERYBODY!!!!

Like the Red Wolf above also the Eel has the same problem, now there is this:
Eel (Edward Lavell) Orig #4, Del #4 1, Mas #2 2, ME5MK 1/3 w/Stryke; Del #7 head, ME4S App, Hardc #7 head, Hardc #12 head, MUUp 5 head

but also in the Deluxe #4 Stryke and Lavel shared the entry so it should be this way:
Eel (Edward Lavell) Orig #4, Del #4 1 w/Stryke, Mas #2 2, ME5MK 1/3 w/Stryke; Del #7 head, ME4S App, Hardc #7 head, Hardc #12 head, MUUp 5 head

I don't want to annoy anyone but also Mister Fear has the same problem, not it is this:

Mister Fear (Zoltan Drago) Mas #25 2, ME5MK 1 w/Machinesmith, Cranston, Fagan; Hardc #8 ½
Mister Fear (Starr Saxon) see Machinesmith

but in the Original #7 and the Deluxe #8 the Entry of Mister Fear is not only for Fagan but also for the other three so I think it should be this way:

Mister Fear (Lawrence Cranston) Orig #7 ¾, Del #8 1, Mas #25 2, ME5MK 1 w/Drago, Machinesmith, Fagan; Hardc #7 2
Mister Fear (Zoltan Drago) Orig #7 ¾, Del #8 1, Mas #25 2, ME5MK 1 w/Machinesmith, Cranston, Fagan; Hardc #8 ½

Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) Orig #5 App, Mas #27 2 w/Everbest; Del #4 1, ME4S 1/3, ME5MK App, DefSH 2

Foolkiller (Greg Salinger) Orig #5 App, Mas #27 2 w/Everbest; Del #4 1 w/Everbest, ME4S 1/3, ME5MK App, DefSH 2

Thank you for all those suggestions, Angelo. I'll pull out my Essential copies over the weekend and go through them.

A general rule I go by though: unless a character is subsequently revealed to be two characters (e.g. Marvel Girl/Phoenix Force or Marvel Boy/Crusader), I let the Vital Statistics section (Real Name, Occupation et al) be my guide. If the Vital Statistics section only gives stats for one character or only references other versions under First Appearance, I treat the entry as only being for that version of the character, albeit with supplementary info on other versions. I do however count other versions if they appear under Real Name, Occupation, etc. So when I look at the above, that will be the deciding factor in terms of splitting an entry on the Master List.

I agree with you, Andy, I controlled and I believe that every suggestion I made is about profiles talking of every version in the History sections, not only in the First Appearance sections.

In the Valkyrie's profile in the Original #12 and Deluxe #14 the entry talks abou her three versions (Enchantress, Parrington and Brunnhilde), so I think instead of:

Looking at Angelo’s suggestions (as noted before, to count as a separate entry, stats for another incarnation have to appear in the “Vital Statistics” section other than First Appearance, even if other versions are discussed in the History):

Red Wolf, Mister Fear, Foolkiller, Black Talon, Ghost Rider (Slade), Guardsman, Air-Walker, Nomad, Ringmaster, Valkyrie, Vulture, Iron Man, Scarlet Scarab, Union Jack, Saturnyne:
All are examples of the First Appearance/History exemption (I do realize how problematic the Iron Man case is but we have to draw the line somewhere).
Verdict: Leave as is.

Eel:
There appears here to be confusion between comma and semi-colon. All listings before the first semi-colon are shared entries, so the shared entries in Deluxe #4 are already factored in.
Verdict: Leave as is.

Crimson Dynamo:
There are two issues here, the shared entries aspect and the spelling of Bukharin’s first name. The first is another example of the First Appearance/History exemption. In the second case, as far as I can tell, his first name really is Dimitri, even though that’s wrong from a real world perspective. One possible explanation: maybe some celebrity/pop culture character in Russia-616 had an altered spelling to seem cool, and Dimitri’s parents were fans and decided to use that spelling. Regardless of why though, it’s Dimitri. As with Sunspot, we’re stuck with a weird looking real name until and when it’s retconned.
Verdict: Leave as is.

Hate-Monger
This is definitely an error
Verdict: Fixed. Change will appear when I do the next upload.

Wildboys
Hmm, I don’t always list members for groups but since there are only two, why not?
Verdict: Added. Change will appear when I do the next upload.

Subterraneans
This entry is largely a broad overview and is not easily divided into individual types of Subterraneans. I see this as analogous to Europe and individual countries having separate entries.
Verdict: Leave as is.

SHIELD
This one’s a bit tricky because subsequently the SHIELD II history is generally folded into SHIELD. Having said that this entry is clearly just the post-Nick Fury vs SHIELD team
Verdict: I’ll fine tune the SHIELD listing to note this. Change will appear when I do the next upload.

I'll announce here when the upload happens. Other editing in progress.

Dear Andy, I am sorry if you lost your time because of me to control everything but I really was sure my suggestions could be useful... I hope you can forgive me...
however I accept, respect and understand your decisions.

May I only try to ask you to think about two of my suggestions, please?

1) about the Subterraneans, I really think it would be better to to count the four races as separate entries because the profiles don't have “Vital Statistics” sections, they have only the First Appearances where they are separated, like in the Hate-Monger's profile where you counted the "Adolf Hitler clone" and "H.M. Unger/Psycho-Man construct" as separated.
And in the Subterranens Deluxe profile the four races are well divided in the history and the Moloids and the Tyrannoids have two good illustrations, too.

2) about Red Wolf, in the list we have now Red Wolf (William Talltrees) listed in two profiles (Deluxe #10 and Update '89 #6) and nothing for Red Wolf (Johnny Wakeley) but in the Updated he is called "Red Wolf II", why? I am sure Marvel wanted to make clear that in the Update '89 they wanted to talk more about Talltress and that the profile on Deluxe #10 was more for both of them, if not why call him "Red Wolf II" if the first profile was for Talltress too?

I insist not because I want to annoy but only because I really think that Johnny Wakeley, the Moloids, the Tyrannoids, the Lava Men and the Gortokians deserve it, thank you for your patience

Hi Angelo First off, no problem about making some suggestions. I'd rather check somethihng out and determine that it didn't need changing than to have some errors remain because people were afraid to point them out.  Second off, I have no idea why meta-tags are showing up.

1 a. I neglected to mention before but probably should have, but when looking at the Subterrraneans entry I did skim through the initial paragraphs and it appearedd to be talking about Subterreans as a whole. From that I determined that it was the author's intent that this was a broad look at the Subterreans, albeit with some paragraphs going into detail on specific races once the broad strokes were out of the way.

1 b. The Hate-Monger entry that you mention is in the Deluxe Book of the Dead. You are correct in notingn that there are no Vital Statistics other than First Appearance. That having been said, the entry is titled Hate-Monger I, III and as per the conventions of that series of Handbooks depicts the deaths of the Hitler and Unger versions (II being the still-alive Man-Beast). I think it's pretty clear that the author's intent was that this was a shared Hitler/Unger entry.

2. What I believe happened here was the original and Deluxe Handbooks used the roman numerals fairly infrequently, mostly just the Appendices and Books of the Dead except in cases where it was unavoidable such as Deluxe's Iron Man I and II, where both versions were activer at the same time. However, with Update '89 Roman numerals started to appear a biot more often, perhaps because Mark Gruenwald was taking a lesser role and others wanted to use the Roman numerals more often, perhaps because of the perceived greater need for them as multiple versions of characters started to appear more often either due to succesors of characters who had entries in the past (Blizzard) or earlier versions of characters returning (Human Torch). So Talltrees was Red Wolf in Original and Deluxe, but Red Wolf II in Update '89 and how that Roman numerals are mostly abandoned these days, is now Red Wolf (Talltrees). Again, looking at Vital Statistics, the author's intent is clear that it was a Talltrees entry. Agreedn that Wakeley could have been fleshed out more into his own entry, but it was a different time and Gruenwald other than in the Books of the Dead seemed pretty focussed on characters active in the present day.  Happily the Handcovers gave all the Red Wolf incarnations their due at last.

I am not sure I understand, does this mean that you agree with me about the Subterraneans suggestions?

No I meant that that the initial paragraphs seemed to be taking a look at the Subterraneans as a whole. I see this as a clear case of the author trying to provide a broad general history of the Subterraneans and not a history of the races separately. So, sorry, I don't see anything that could be split off here without going against the original author's intent. Had the entry provided the Deluxe Edition style quarter pagers with stats (see for example Circus of Crime, Squadron Supreme, or, more directly analogous, Savage Land Races from the Book of the Dead) it would be a different matter. But from an objective point of view it's an entry on the Subterraneans as a whole.

Subjectively, however I agree that they need more individual coverage. The Moloids and Tyrannoids have only been covered in the Fantastic Four encyclopedia and the Gortokians have never been covered at all. The Lava Men are the teacher's pet.

Dear Andy, I understand your reasons and I don't want to make you nervous but I ask you to admit the four following exceptions to the rule:

1) about the Subterraneans (Gortokians / Lava Men / Moloids / Tyrannoids)

2) about:
Iron Man (Anthony Edward “Tony” Stark/Cobalt Man) Orig #5 1 w/Rhodes
Iron Patriot (James Rupert Rhodes/Iron Man/War Machine) Orig #5 1 w/Stark

3) about Saturnyne (Opal Luna Saturnyne/Earth-9) / Sat-Yr9 (Opal Lun Sat-Yr-Nin/Earth-794) / Ross, Courtney

4) and also about a new one:
Giants of Jotunheim U89 #3 2
that I think it should be this:
Giants of Jotunheim (Storm Giants, Ice Giants, Rime Giants, Frost Giants) U89 #3 2
Frost Giants see Giants of Jotunheim
Ice Giants see Giants of Jotunheim
Rime Giants see Giants of Jotunheim
Storm Giants see Giants of Jotunheim

I ask it for the following reasons:
1) I love the Subterraneans and I really think they deserve it
2) the profile of Iron Man on the Original #5 is 99% about Tony Stark
3) the profile of Saturnyne on the Update #6 shows three full illustrations of Saturnine, of Courtney Ross and of Sat-Yr9, and they are the same person from three different dimensions, so the vital statistics could not be different because they are identical
4) the Giants of Asgard are very nice

I repeat I don't want to annoy you and this is the last time I ask it to you but I do it only because I love the O.H.o.t.M.U. and I love your list here and we are not robots and we can decide exceptions to make us more happy... if possible...
thank you all for the patience with me, guys

I think one difference here is you're taking a subjective approach whereas I'm taking an objective approach so as to ensure consistency. If I allow exceptions in such borderline cases. then we could quick get mired in minutiae in terms of what constitutes an entry/sub-entry. If we could go back in time I might agree to try to convince Gru to rework some of the older entries but we can't change the past. So:

1-3 (as well as any similar cases discussed in the past few weeks). No. Final answer. Maybe my successor will feel otherwise but I have no plans to step down at this time so you're stuck with my answer for the foreseeable future. That said, if you noticed any shared entries not already in the list that do meet my objective criteria, do pass them along.

4. The list only uses cross-references if a character/item etc has an entry/sub-entry under the alternative name. Prior to headshots being added there wasn't even a cross-reference for Ant-Man (Henry Pym) if memory serves. Should the Rime Giants etc get their own entry, even if it's just an appendix, we can revisit at that time.

Okay. Future History added. I may have accidentally split versions of the same character variant or merged two variants of the same basic character in error. In fact adding these reminded my why I don't revisit X-Men comics as much as other stuff I've bailed from. If such errors did occur let me know and will fix.

I may at some point have to merge posts on the first page together and put them on the second page. The second of the three parts of the actual list took about ten minutes to save (CX Pulp simply can't handle posts the size of the Master List the way Comixfan could) so in the near future I might need to split the list up some more.

If you mean can I update the Master List, I can and will add next time I do a batch update. As for the "why", the previous Master List writer, Eric Moreels put the entries in before it was decided that putting in official webpages was a bad idea given the tendency for pages to disappear eventually, so they got grandfathered in (keep in mind they were probably put in around 2004, and while pages disappearing from the Internet was not unknown then it's a lot more common now).

I don't think they were around very long. I started posting to the Who Watches the Watchers boards around 2006 and I think they were already gone by then (I could be wrong about this; at first I assumed they were a Files type published book that I needed to seek out). I'm not too worried about missing profiles from them: we don't include online profiles anymore and if they're not online now they can't be hunted down anyway the way hard copies can be.

On another note, since it came up earlier in this thread while I was on vacation and I've seen it come up since then, fair use rules are a bit tricky with Handbooks. Two pages might not be an issue with a regular story because it's a small percentage of the tale but an entire entry might not fall under fair use as it's considered complete. Also "fair use" usually applies to educational/review type matters. So what I'm trying to say is, if you want scans of entries, be sure to fly under the radar of the Mouse who owns Marvel. Be discrete or at least give a clear educational reason why you need those specific profiles. If you want to PM people about scans, that's between you and them. I won't personally accept requests for scans by PM but if you want me to look up a specific bit of information in a profile for you I can do that as there's no legal grey area there. If and when I learn more about how copyright laws apply specifically to Handbook entries I'll make a formal statement at that point. But since it's a bit grey I say let sleeping dogs lie there. Just be discrete unless you're certain you're on solid legal ground. I don't want this to suffer the fate of other sites that have closed due to copyright infringement.

I'll correct that when I do the next update.

In terms of nicknames, which I believe is what you meant, I've only been putting in nicknames when there's an entry under that name or when the given name has never been confirmed. If we eventually get on a faster server I'll continue adding them in. However, and this is the reason I've been splitting the posts, as the list increases in size it's become. A. Lot. Slower. To. Save. I've made some concessions with abbreviations because of strong demand and adding in alter egos as that reduces a lot of confusion (and I've spotted entries that needed merging as a result), but clicking Edit, pasting a single portion over the portion it's replacing, click Save, and waiting for that section to reappear as freshly saved can take five or ten minutes; if memory serves it's even timed out a few times. I could start a new thread and split it into ten sections but sooner or later it would grow until it became a problem again.

So unfortunately, nicknames are so minor I'm leaving them out until a viable solution to the resource issue emerges. In fact if anyone has any suggestions for reducing the memory needed for each section, that's what's really needed at the moment.

Different characters, actually (I just doublechecked their first appearances to be sure). Alas we're living in the Marvel Age of Recycled Concepts. When I do the next update I'll try to find a way to clarify this further. Basically the first one posed as the real Madame Masque for an extended period of time after killing another MM duplicate, while the latter rejected her legacy and chose to be a hero, earning here the respect of the Avengers.

Not a problem. There have been cases where two characters on the list have proven to be the same person and there might very well be more. If you don't ask, we'll never weed those out.

According to Iron Man: Official Index to the Marvel Universe, the MM that the earlier bio-duplicate killed was herself a bio-duplicate, so there appears to be a Dr Doom thing happening on a smaller scale. Don't like an appearance by MM? That was just a bio-duplicate and not the real MM.

Dear Andy, I have a question (maybe you already talked about it but I don't remember, sorry): we have
Wrecker (Dirk Garthwaite) Orig #12 1, Del #8 head, Del #15 2, Mas #3 2, AvLog, ME4S App, Hardc #6 head, Hardc #7 head, AvNow 2
and
Wrecking Crew Orig #12 1, AvLog, ME5MK App, ME6FF App, NAvMW 2, Hardc #13 2, DReig 1/3

why we don't add the Wrecker's presence in the Wrecking Crew's profile in Hardc #13?
I mean: is it a small oversight or you decided to not add it?
I ask it because I saw the same thing about other characters but before to search and to list them I would like to understand more, thank you.

I'll correct Zaladane, Zartra, and Zemu in the next update. I see the Mansion and the Institute as slightly different (and the X-Men encyclopedia agrees with me as it includes both separately). I just checked the Wrecking Crew entry and couldn't find any head or body shots with First Appearance or First Joined info for any individual members. A caption by itself is not enough to count. Some might even claim that the headshots that I do include are too little, but I'm adding them because otherwise some interesting characters would not make the list at all and because some Appendix entries are almost as brief. That's why in some cases the softcover rather than the hardcover is noted: First appearances got added to a number of head and body shots. Had the softcover completed its run chances are the Wrecker would have been noted but that's pure speculation.

Soviet Super-Soldiers Orig #10 1/3, Del #12 1

but the Winter Guard's profile talks also about the Soviet Super-Soldiers, the Supreme Soviets and the People's Protectorate

Hmm that's one's a tricky one. The headshots for Darkstar, Vanguard etc.'s Active issues are for the Winter Guard but there is indeed a capsule second for the other two teams under members and three of the headshots are more for the People's Protectorate/Supreme Soviets. Probably the best way to handle this is I'll treat the earlier two teams as capsule sub-entries of Winter Guard. It's not a perfect solution but probably as good a solution as we're going to get.

Thank you! Is Alexandra Station the same as Alexandria in hardcover #6's Appendix? Ditto Goseye and hardcover 6's Godseye? The latter in particular sounds like a simple typo but the first one with the word Station could suggest a different satellite. Also, just to confirm, while I'm sure it's the same satellite, the Atlas lists Star Well I as just Star Well, no Roman numeral?

Alexandra Station is the same as Alexandria. "Goseye" was a typo on my part. Star Well is listed without the numeral in the Atlas but is the same satellite.

Fair enough, but the rules we're playing by is that they need to be formal or Files type, so we do allow in a few things not by the OHOTMU team, as long as the style fits and Marvel actually published it. A good example of why we need that level of flexibility is the map of Wakanda found in issues of Jungle Action. it preceeded the Handbooks by years, but was included more or less verbatim when Wakanda showed up in first series #4. It would be silly to exclude something that was larter used by Handbook people. So if it's pretty close in style I'll allow them; the Spider-Gwen stuff is so close that, if included in a future hardcover, unless the decision was made to ignore the originals, the necessary rewrites would probably be less than Encyclopaedia Mythologica.

This is actually less broad than it could have been. if you check the original Master list thread (I'll update the link to that at the top by the weekend at the latest; it's in the Reference Thread Finder), even the DK books were planned to be added at one point (having reformatted most of the threads in 2013 and 2016 I've memorized quite a bit of the older discussions).

I hope I didn't come across as discounting them. They're certainly legitimate, but just wanted to state for the record that the current OHotMU team had nothing to do with producing them. I believe they're being written by the series writer, so they're factually sound, though the "voice" used is slightly less Handbook style.

Added in All-New All-Different Marvel Universe. Most of the lands in Battleworld I treated as new listings. However, for MC2, the classic Reality number was given without "or variant" so gave it the benefit of the doubt and folded it into the earlier listing. I won't give the various Parker Industries their own separate '"body shot" listings or cross references (I doubt anyone searching for Parker Industries will look under "L" for "London Office", but I did note them under Parker Industries itself.

I haven't done the singles yet because there's a bit of overlap with Sightings and want to do those at the same time. i did however fix the keyword search typo that Angelo spotted.

Here's the question that came up: previously the 616/Prime Peter Quill was believed to be the Star-Lord who first appeared in Marvel Preview and was treated as such in the Handbooks. But then the Guardians of the Galaxy's Guidebook noted that the 616/Prime version didn't appear until Thanos #4, with the earlier stories being Reality-731. Stuart confirmed this on the thread to that volume (in part due to Bendis changing his origin). This means I've had to split the listings as there's a couple places where it's just 616/Prime. So the question is whether the Hollow Crown entry covers both versions (with the two versions' history intermingled) or if it uses the the Bendis origin (or conversely just the 731 history). If it lists his first appearance as Marvel Preview but also mentions his Guardians history it's probably a merged version. It it mentions Marvel Preview but no Guardians it's just 731. If it lists Thanos as his first appearance it's 616/Prime.

His first appearance is listed as Marvel Preview #4.
There is a long note at the end of the History section:

Star-Lord recently related an account of his origins that varied significantly in numerous respects from previous accounts.... Assuming this is a truthful account, the name discrepancies may simply be different Anglicizations of alien words, but the extensive history differences suggest that the Star-Lord sired by Jason of Sparta was from alternate Reality-791, while the offspring of J'Son of Spartax is the Reality-616 Star-Lord....

Thank you. Assuming that everything other than the note at the end of the History uses the original account (so Jason not J'Son etc) , I'll treat it as a merged entry, albeit one eying the new continuity. Bendis writes some great character moments but he's murder on continuity, including resurrecting characters during the Raft breakout apparently without realizing it. I don't think that his origin for Spider-Woman is easily reconciled with her earlier origin either.

"Jason" is used at the beginning of the history section, and "J'Son" is used near the end.

Corrected the Menelaus error plus a Leviathan error (two different versions were together). Added in the material from Agents of SHIELD Season 2/Agent Carter Season 1 (quite a few new additions including the In the Comics versions); since the 616/Prime Isabelle's surname has not been confirmed as Hartley, I've placed her in the I's for now.

Okay, there's a decision to be made:
I have a way of making the entry names stand out a lot more, way more appealing. BUT in order to do so I'd have to split the text again and push the historical text down one. This will make saving updates a bit slower (I'll save to save two halves instead of one whole) but it looks a lot nicer in my opinion.

So here's the deal: if people don't like the potential new look or are neutral, I'll leave the format as is for now. But if people love the new look, I'll do the split. This is the new look I'm thinking of:

Valkyrie (Brunnhilde) Orig #2 App, Hardc #14 caps, XEarM head as Brunnhilde; CoC #2, Orig #3 head, Orig #12 1, Del #14 3, U89 #2 head, EncM ½, Hardc #3 head, Hardc #12 3, HeroH 1/3, Wom7D 3, ARCal head x2, AZsc #1 head, AvNow App as Valkyrie
Valkyrie (Samantha Parrington) Wom05 1, Hardc #3 head, Hardc #12 2, Wom7D 2 as Valkyrie; XEarM head as Samantha Parrington
Valkyrior Orig #12 App, Hardc #14 caps, XEarM 2
Valkyrior Steeds Pets ½, Hardc #13 ½
Valley of Doom (Reality-51920) ANADiff caps

Thoughts?

I corrected the coding errors and added the Doctor Strange Guidebook. With this volume, I've started using the new InCom abbreviation for In the Comics, as In the Comics entries are a little different than normal Appendix entries (e.g. no real title). I'll adjust the earlier InCom entries later.

Doctor Spectrum (William Roberts/Martha Gomes/Alice Nugent) DefSH 3 w/Krimmon and Obatu
Doctor Spectrum's Power Prism see Doctor Spectrum (Krimmon)

with Krimmon instead of Krimonn
but wer are sure that is true name is Krimonn also watching his entry on the SKRULLS! (2008)'s Official Handbook,
in fact you named him Krimonn in the list here:
Krimonn Skr 1

I'll be updating this post soon, including that Dr Spectrum error I forgot about. One question: the Master List is bursting at the seams and causing this thread to be slow to load. Would people be okay with the list itself being in its own closed thread, while keeping the discussion here? That way I could tweak the list to make it easier to read (making the entry names yellow), and this would likely speed up loading for both the list itself and the commentary. But I realize it's a bit of a pain to have the list in one location and the discussion somewhere else, though of course each would be linked to the other. What are people's preferences?

I'll pin this one. Just added all the core entries from Spider-Geddon and about half the Appendix entries. Will add more from Appendix after I've moved some more threads over.

Added the rest of the Appendix. Too much to do with the move so since the Appendix lacks captions, I only included code names and real names if they explicitly appeared in the text; feel free to supply missing real names. I'm aware that bits of size coding appears above, plus some unwanted underlining. I can't do any more tonight so will take care of those next week at the latest.

Okay, thank you. Here's what I need from the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 section, which I believe  is the only new section.

For core entries:
Exact entry name, including "update" if applicable
Any real names unless already noted in prior listings. Sometimes real names are only found in the History for Guidebooks
Page count (include sub-entries, usually In the Comics in page count; so if a 1 pager has a 1/4 page sub-entry, just say 1 page, not 3/4 page)

There probably won't be any sub-entries that aren't In the comics. If there are, let me know and I'll clarify what to do.

For In the Comics:
Make it clear which profile they're connected to.
List page counts if 1/6 page or larger, otherwise say "capsule". Okay to eyeball and give a reasonable estimate. I don't care if a profile is 3 mm off from 1/4 page; common sense rounding is fine. Include the cover reproductions as part of the page count.
If there are two distinct sections within a core profile (so text-cover, text-cover), treat as separate sub-entries.
Since these are untitled, quote the sentence or phrase listing character name(s). If there is more than one character etc in the same sub-entry, quote enough to give me a sense of who all is covered. I'll decide from the quote what to list them under.

Funny, I've been thinking of doing a complete comparison between Deluxe and the trades.
For Headmen, they didn't get an entry at all in Deluxe. After the trades, they got an entry in Update '89, but it's completely rewritten, 1 page in Deluxe trade, 2 in Update '89. Both have sub-entries but for Nagan and Morgan they're under code name in the trade, real name in Update '89. Ruby only has a sub-entry in Update '89.

At a quick glance it appears the main difference in the case of Red Ronin is the main illo has been redrawn. And of course the colours are nicer in the trade due to the whiter paper..

If you mean comparing the hardcovers to the main body of the trades, you should check the original tpb threads first. I believe Sidney listed off changes shortly after they came out, but you might be able to expand on his work.

Re: The OHOTMU Master List (also Files, Guidebooks, and Related Works)

I have found some creators profiles (including a file called the Office Handbook of the Marvel Universe).
Where can I publish that list ?

I have a few thoughts here. The Master List captures such profiles that appear in the Handbooks themselves. There was briefly discussion of adding in profiles from other sources but it quickly became apparent that this would be a huge can of worms (e.g. Bullpen Bulletins has some of these). So I have a couple thoughts. 1. Just post the list here or in Sightings with the understanding that they might not get folded in. OR if you would like a challenge, you could start a new thread on that topic. In such a case I would give you a few broad guidelines but otherwise let you format the list as you saw fit. Is this something you would like to take on?

Okay. At the very least you want who is the profile for and the original source of the profile. For Bullpen Bulletin profiles, you can either list the individual titles or "all titles with an indicia date of ____". Up to you if you want to list the article name or just the name of the person covered, though the former would be nice. For example, I did a little research yesterday and it appears that there was only one Office Handbook profile (for Jim Shooter) and that it came from Marvel Age. At the very least we'd want that it's for Shooter and the issue of Marvel Age, but including the Office Handbook bit would be nice. Page counts optional; I doubt any run longer than a page. Artist optional. At the very least list by subject covered or by source comic but you can do both if you'd like. Note instances of the profile being reprinted. Definitely include the people from the Handbooks listed in the Master List. Feel free to include as much or as little additional info as you want people to know. Come up with an eye please format. I generally use title case and bold the first part, but whatever you come up with that's eye appealing is fine. Images are optional. Each individual post has size limits. You probably won't run into them with just text but if you scan in an image and try to place it in the post directly instead of copying and pasting images from another source, you'll reach them. In case the project proves to be larger than expected, I'd include a placeholder post after the first post in case you have to break the post up later.

Updated the entries to include Empyre Handbook. I'm assuming that Phil (Kree cameraman) and Phil (Skrull cameraman) are separate characters. If Phil is a Kree-Skrull hybrid, I'll merge those.
