Good reference for all the favorite characters. Has sections on eveything, from alternate universes and "romances". It had cool illustatrations, with some copies of original drawings.

OK ,you know about the main superheroes and villains. This book, lavishly illustrated, opens the world up on the DC universe before the 52 event wrecked it.
