Marvels 1980s Handbooks set a benchmark in classification and guidebooks for the medium but I hope you can help me out by telling me in what ways did they get certain facts wrong?
I'm familiar with their reasoning Gladiator employed Shi'ar tech to help perform his feats (Not!) but what else did they in fact 'make up' or was simply untrue at the time?

The biggy was that Captain America's Shield contained Adamantium. There are a few wrong real names in some entries, most notably the original Handbook's entries for the Squadron Supreme. (Largely because they had been made up for that handbook, and would be changed before Gruenwald's awesome miniseries.) A few relatives were left out. No first appearance entries prior to FF #1. That sort of thing.
