For starters the book as a whole is very light on X-Men content, with only a single two-page spread devoted to the entire team, which has had many revisions over the years. Major characters like Storm, Kitty Pride, Psylocke, and Bishop are hardly mentioned aside from in a laundry list of members (if at all), and iconic villains like Magneto, Apocalypse, and Juggernaut are relegated to single-sentence summaries.
Most of the other Marvel properties get better treatment, except for their other dream team, the Fantastic Four. Being just a group of four, two pages was probably enough for the heroes, but some of the major villains they've spawned were omitted almost entirely. Galactus gets a minor reference, but it's Dr. Doom who is seriously snubbed (no dedicated villain page for either). It's a shame to see such little content devoted to the original Marvel super villain who would form the archetype for all others to come.
Finally, the events section is pretty light as well; the 2015 Secret Wars remake is listed but the '80s classic is ignored. The same goes for the Contest of Champions and Age of Apocalypse, and likewise for more recent major events and alternate universes like "House of M" and its aftermath in Avengers vs. X-Men.
So overall, there's a decent amount of content and it's well presented, but I feel like the book could have standed to be another 20 or so pages and include some of these more glaring omissions.
