Summary The Marvel Book is an exhilarating journey through the endlessly fascinating, ever-dynamic, and awe-inspiring Marvel Comics universe. From iconic superheroes such as the Avengers, Spider-Man, and the Black Panther, to amazing technology like Iron Man's armour and S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Helicarriers, to the cosmic escapades of the Guardians of the Galaxy, to unforgettable villains such as Thanos and Loki, this book explores the key concepts, characters, and events that have defined and shaped Marvel Comics over the past 80 years. Meticulously researched and expertly written, The Marvel Book is packed with vivid, carefully sourced artwork, illuminating infographics, and incisive, specially curated essays that shed new light on the myriad wonders of the Marvel Comics universe, from the microverse to the multiverse, and beyond. The book's content is divided into key subject areas - The Multiverse, Science and Technology, War and Peace, Cosmic Forces, Magic and the Supernatural, and Alternate Realities - that form the foundations of Marvel Comics. The Marvel Book is a revealing and invaluable roadmap to a boundless comics universe that no Marvel fan will want to miss!
