Through its atomic design pattern, which reflects the effects of radio activity on the denizens of the Marvel Universe, this chart also demonstrates how the character sets and their stories interconnect and relate to each other.What's more, flip the chart over and it reads like a book. There are pages of fun facts and trivia, including listings of different characters who have shared the same name; characters who have changed names or identities over the years; characters who have wed each other; and characters who have seemingly died only to return.There is even a Marvel Universe brain-busting quiz! With an interior that expands to nearly 8 feet to diagram different connections, Marvel: The Expanding Universe Wall Chart will not only be cherished for its content, but will also be a visually stunning addition to every comic fan's collection.
