Playing with the Marvel API.

Looking at comic book character co-occurrences (two characters showing up in the same comic) across the history of Marvel Comics. This visualization is just the Top 100 characters based on overall appearances, a subset of the full dataset which can be viewed here. Please be patient if you load that one - it's a lot of co-occurrences.

Code for this chart is on github, and a description of the impetus to this project is on Medium. This visualization is based on Mike Bostock's Les Misérables co-occurrence matrix diagram. Data provided by Marvel © 2018 MARVEL via Marvel Developer.

Comments and suggestions are welcome on github, Medium, or here. Note: I've intentionally not shared the cached data pulled from Marvel Developer, only the directed graph data to build this visualization.
