The Marvel Database Project (MDP) is a fan-based site which relies on the Marvel Comics fan community for support. Our goal is to build a complete reference tool for all official Marvel Inc properties, and we can't do it without you! We encourage you to create an account and help us achieve this goal. This page describes some of what we are currently working on and what you can do to help.
