Welcome to the official online Data Corrections page for the Official Handbooks of the Marvel Universe. Herein we will publish official corrections and clarifications for entries in the Deluxe Edition, Update ‘89, Master Edition and the current incarnation of the OHOTMU. You will be able to find the listing of corrections on the Data Corrections Listing below.
In spite of everyone's best efforts, sometimes mistakes do still slip through. Often we spot these mistakes ourselves once a book comes out (and then we kick ourselves), other times someone points it out. We will give credit for spotting mistakes, when we are contacted directly or through Marvel, and when we know the identity of the eagle-eyed reader; however credit will only be given to the first person to bring the mistake to our attention. In addition, we also list below clarifications for things which are not necessarily mistakes, but which are regularly and erroneously thought be mistakes by some readers.
If you would like to keep us posted about any and all errors and oversights accidentally printed, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Please mention which character you are submitting, which issue the character is in and a brief explanation in the subject area. For example "Spider-Man 2004: Spider-Man's relatives", "Book of the Dead: Thor's battle with Surtur" or "Women of Marvel 2005: Scarlet Witch's powers". This will help group each e-mail together for a specific error with a character.
The House of M reality is simply a name for the unique state of existence created by the Scarlet Witch. It is indeed an altered reality (specifically, an altered Earth-616) - not an alternate reality. It is so altered that events that occurred in Earth-616-normal did not affect those in House of M or vice-versa. Reality-58163 is a core continuum designation for the unique altered reality and the events that occurred within that altered reality.
General Power Grids
