Gaming Resources

I would like to put up some resources for the game- in addition to official materials I'm producing, and am in the midst of trying to find the best way to do this. Here are a few options...

1. The Forum. I have a relatively empty forum where stuff can go. I'm not sure if, in the grand scheme, this will be the best way to organize things.

2. The Yahoo Group. As above. Again, this feels a bit outdated with other options that are out there.

3. A Wiki. I'm looking at wikispaces, and this seems to be the best way to go...

Really, the big issue I have is this- what can I actually create and post there as far as support for existing comic worlds? Specifically, I'm trying to figure out what appears to be a very grey area when it comes to copyright. I'd love to just go ahead and post stats for all sorts of official Marvel and DC heroes/villains, but I don't think that I (as the game's creator and the one who can make some financial gain from it) can be the one to post things there... can I? It seems like I shouldn't be able to, but then again, players can seemingly do so without any negative consequence. I feel relatively foolish even fielding the question, but if anyone has a clear answer for me, I'd love to hear it!
