Marvel Comics Developer API

Yes, that’s what I said: a developer API for seventy years’ worth of Marvel Comics content. You can now write your own application and make use of Marvel’s countless characters, creators, series, even story arcs.

Marvel Developer API

What a remarkable gift this is to kids (of all ages) with plenty of time on their hands and the wherewithal to expand upon the Marvel Universe’s fantastic patchwork of wonderful and ridiculous adventures. It would be even more amazing to be able to access the comic pages themselves, even on a panel-by-panel basis. But that’s getting greedy; even as it stands now, the potential to create genuinely interesting stuff from this data is already substantial. Hats off to the team who had the gumption to even think this would be a good idea.
