Dan Markstein’s Toonopedia is an online comic book nerd’s Rosetta Stone. Everybody’s here; from The All-Star Squadron to the Zoo Crew.  Hell, even guys like Black Lightning, Blue Falcon and Dynomutt made the cut! 

Some nice stuff here as each hero/group is given their own page that details their origin, first appearance, legal issues (see Captain Marvel, Marvelman, or hell anything with Marvel in the title), a short look at the career(s), current status and more. 

It’s a Wikipedia just for comic book junkies.  Sure all the big names are here like Batman and Spider-Man, but the cool part about the site is how many of the lower level comic characters are represented here (how many of you out there remember Shang-Chi Master of Kung-Fu, Moon Knight, and the Mighty Mightor?).  And of course with an entry for Underdog, it gets my instant stamp of approval.  Check it out.

    Loved it! Nice resource to have when you want to know the background info on a hero.
