If you were reading Marvel comic books in the mid-1980s, there was only one place to get all these answers and more: The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition.

Along the way, there's serious discussions about the duty of care towards child actors, less serious references to classic episodes of The Simpsons, and the anecdote of when Pandy outright lied to the recently deceased Prince Philip.
