Nope, not just a collection, but far more.

-Every profile is updated as much as possible.

-There will indeed be some brand new profiles.

-Re-written/new profiles due to format changes or different style of Handbook (which would also count as new material).

-Characters that have gotten a name change since their last profile are being placed under their new codename (for example Beak is now Blackwing, Winter Soldier is now Captain America, etc.).

-New main images to update costumes if characters have changed costumes.

-Some profiles get page expansions due to previous lack of space when they were last given profiles and some 1/2 pages are being expanded to full pages.

-Data Corrections will be fixed.

You can find out even more information on it here: All-New OHotMU A-Z Vol. 1 Premiere HC.

Have a Nice Day!

I'm impressed... I'll definitely buy all of these. (Of course, I would have anyway, but now I'm far more excited, and will probably get some as gifts along as well...)
