Marvel today released a new API to help developers leverage the vast database that Marvel has developed over the past 75 years. With this new API, developers will be able to link their apps, websites, and blogs to the Marvel database. This database will include covers, character histories, story lines, and major events. This is a big deal, and a first from the comic book industry. You can read more about it here. This is definitely something we at Vixen Varsity will be looking into and possibly leveraging to enhance our comic classes.
