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?

They did occasionally run art for new costumes that weren't ultimately used - memorably there was Hawkeye's costume in the first OHOTMU and Angel & Cyclops' in the Deluxe.

"The Initiative removes the moral choice implied in Stan Lee's 'power and responsibility' formulation and replaces it with shades of grey that subvert heroism in favor of quid pro quos, fear of banishment or disempowerment, and subtle corruption of both the superheroic and supervillainous ideals." - Omar Karindu
