1991 Character Updates (1991)

Love that the 1991 Character Updates to the Gamer’s Handbook of the Marvel Universe has Thor and Asgard stuff on the cover, because that was definitely the most important thing going on in Marvel comics that year. Not, like, the massive shift in the X-books where characters like Cable, Gambit and the Mutant Liberation Front first showed up, or the introduction of the new Ghostrider. Catching up continues, with a bunch of entries focusing on Set and the Serpent Crown, a crossover event that played out in Marvel’s 1989 annuals. It’s weird seeing the then new school and old school side by side in this book.
