Amid the comics boom of the 1990s, THE OFFICIAL HANDBOOK OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE evolved to meet the collector frenzy - reinvented and presented as shrink-wrapped packs of looseleaf cards, hole-punched to be assembled in dedicated binders (sold separately)! Now, at long last, these fact-filled profiles are collected in Omnibus format - and to save you the work, we've put them in alphabetical order! This inaugural volume presents the first half of the Marvel Universe as it stood in 1991-1993, from the Abomination to Lyja the Lazerfist - and the legions of heroes, villains and teams in between! Featuring front, back and side views of all your favorite characters, many making their OHOTMU debuts - including icons of the era Deadpool and Cable! Collecting material from OFFICIAL HANDBOOK OF THE MARVEL UNIVERSE: MASTER EDITION #1-36.
