    Sounds like it could be either Who's Who in the DC Universe or the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe.

    I had (might still have, somewhere) a book called something like "An encyclopaedia of comics", or "who's who in the comics" or something along those lines. It was a paperback, about an inch thick that contained an alphabetical list of an awful lot of comics and characters, from various companies.

    it wasnt one book.. it was a set of books, around the size of a graphic novel..
    and there was one for each letter or a small set of letters.. there were quite a few... sorry im being so difficult :p

    Who's Who and OHOTMU weren't just one book. They were both series.
    "I don't care if they have definite connections to the boy scouts. They have Weapon X - I want him back. We spent a lot of money and resources developing and training him - not to mention your group as well - I won't see it thrown away."

    Unfortunately, Wolverine escaped to the U.S. with the X-Men. Soon after this stunning debacle, Trudeau's Liberal Party would go down to defeat in the May 1979 election.

    The 1st 2 series of OHOTMU have been published as Essential Guides.

    and DC Who's Who is coming soon as Showcase Presents

    Was it The Encyclopedia of Super-Heroes by Jeff Rovin? That one fits your description.

    EDIT: Oops. Read the rest of the thread. Never mind.
