Marvel Comics has released in beta an API for access to part of its character and comic book database. Currently, it covers 30,000 comic books across 7,000 series and 8,000 characters in work by 5,000 creators, and provides results to queries in standard JSON format.
The Marvel API and developer platform, currently limited to 1,000 API calls per day per key holder, is designed to allow fan sites in particular to create data visualisations and queries based around Marvel history, and as a resource for partners and retailers, but has an obvious application in trivia-offs also - although it has yet to be demonstrated whether it can judge who would win a fight between $hero and $villain.
