WEAPON X #0.5 - FB
Sauron attacks and drains a young couple on a night with a full moon. This is probably a taped segment that appears on one of
the Director's screens.
ELEKTRA v2 #8 (11-12)
One day. Elektra takes her second victim in Los Angeles. A bystander suggests he went to school that day, implying it is a
PUNISHER v6 #21 (2-22)
One day during the week after PUN6 21 (1). The Punisher gets to one of Pearse and Seifert's raids before they do and burns
down the building. Seifert confesses that he is hopelessly in debt to crime lord Bobby Cestone and desperately needs the money.
The Punisher listens in to this conversation. Now he knows that Seifert is corrupt, whereas Pearse is merely a wife-beating
alcoholic. Seifert goes to see Leary. Leary agrees to give him until "the end of the week" to pay up. Fortunately, Big Pete has
disappeared , which has delayed the deal anyway. That evening, Punisher goes to see Fonseca again, and kills him. Pearse visits
his priest, Billy, and confesses to beating his wife. Billy encourages Pearse to quit the force; he believes that Pearse can't handle
the stress of the job. That night, Becky returns home. Pearse is drunk and beats her again. After she crawls out of the house,
Pearse considers suicide, but collapses in tears instead. The reference to the weather being "freezing" is probably topical.
DAREDEVIL v2 #36 (5-6:1)
One day, "three weeks" after DD2 36 (1-4). The Black Widow takes a cab to Matt's law office.
DAREDEVIL v2 #36 (6:2-6:4) ~ ALIAS #15 (1:1-1:3)
The same day as DD2 36 (5-6). It must be after CAGE2 5. The Black Widow pays a visit to Matt at his law office and Jessica
Jones and Luke Cage let her in.
ALIAS #15 (1:4-1:5)
The same day as DD2 36 (6). Natasha enters Matt's office and Jessica and Luke are silent.
DAREDEVIL v2 #36 (6:5-10)
The same day as ALIAS 15 (1:4-1:5). Widow urges Matt to go put his costume on and let them jump around on some roofs.
Matt denies her.
ALIAS #15 (2-9)
The same day as DD2 36 (6-10). As Natasha speaks to Matt, outside the office Jessica and Luke have a discussion about their
relationship. Jessica mentions having a date with Scott Lang "tonight." Then Natasha exits Matt's office.
DAREDEVIL v2 #36 (11-13)
The same day as ALIAS 15 (2-9). Natasha then talks to Foggy and he tells her to leave him alone. Then she places a personal
phone call, using a SHIELD priority code.
DAREDEVIL v2 #36 (14-21)
The same night as DD2 36 (5-13). Matt has a private dinner with Vanessa Fisk, in the Fisk Towers. Vanessa tells Matt she's
leaving America, that she's sold Fisk Towers to Donald Trump and the Kingpin is still in a coma, then gives Matt a card with the
name of the FBI agent who sold his identity to the newspaper. When he gets home he finds Elektra on the rooftop. Full moon.
DAREDEVIL v2 #37 (2-6)
The same night as DD2 36 (5-21). It must be more than "twelve years" after the college scene involving Matt and Elektra in
DD2 37-FB (1). Matt and Elektra chat.
ALIAS #15 (10-21)
The same night as ALIAS 15 (1-9). ALIAS 13 is referred to as having occurred "the other day." Scott Lang and Jessica Jones
have a date at a restaurant as Spider-Man and the Human Torch go after Dr. Octopus (he is probably not captured). During the
date, Scott tells Jessica about his daughter, Cassie: "She's my reason for everything. Seriously - I'd do anything for her. Don't
know what my life would be without her." This dialog is an indication that this scene occurs while Scott is in the midst of the
custody battle mentioned in A3 58 (1-16) and before he loses custody of Cassie in A3 62.
IRON MAN v3 #56
The night of the day after IM3 55/2. Full moon.
IRON MAN v3 #57
The same night as IM3 56.
IRON MAN v3 #58
The same night as IM3 57.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #55
A night with a full moon, right after the Richards' anniversary in FF3 50/4 (6-8). It is "256 months" -- 21 years and four months
-- after Reed and Sue first met. This puts Sue at about age 40, or at the youngest in her late thirties. This fits in with my estimate
of time since FF 1 (about 20 years), despite Franklin Richards' apparent age.
DEADPOOL v3 #69 (9-22)
The night of the day after DP3 69 (1-8). Deadpool and Ratbag arrive in Germany to kick Black swan's butt. Black Swan fixes
Ratbag's mind and kills Nijo. Deadpool detonates an explosive device that destroys Swan's castle.
The same night as DP3 69 (9-22). It is sometime before AX 1 (1-11). As related in AX 14, Deadpool, Black Swan, and Nijo end
up having their minds melded and reapportioned as the bomb goes off, resulting in the reanimation of Nijo's corpse as Agent X.
Tuesday, July 2
PUNISHER v6 #22 (1-19)
The day after PUN6 21 (2-22). Pearse follows Becky to a women's refuge. The Punisher turns up and drives him off. Later,
Billy visits Pearse again. In the evening, Pearse and Seifert go to Cestone's office. Pearse goes in alone, and hands over some of
his own money to go towards Seifert's debt. Cestone realises that Seifert doesn't have the coke which he was going to sell in
settlement of the debt. The mobsters mock Pearse. Pearse finally snaps and opens fire on everyone. Seifert runs in to help (after
the Punisher fends off a henchman for him). Everyone kills one another. The Punisher remains outside and plays no part in the
fight. DAREDEVIL v2 #37 (7-12)
The day after DD2 37 (2-6). Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson deal with a Daily Globe lawyer. Daredevil confronts the FBI
agent who sold him out.
AVENGERS v3 #56
One day. Stark has only recently revealed his identity, and it's not quite common knowledge yet, thus putting this shortly after
the end of IM3 55/2. Thor is in the costume he was first seen wearing in T2 45, the events of T2 46-50 leave little room for gaps,
and Thor brings Asgard to earth at the end of T2 50. That memorable event should postdate A3 61. So I place A3 56-62
between T2 45 and 46.
(BLACK PANTHER v3 #46)
Panther and company are actually in the nineteenth century here. Loki of that time learns from T'Challa's future self that Odin is
dead and Thor has assumed the throne; this doesn't necessarily mean that the present-day Panther and his contemporaries know
this at the time of this adventure.
(BLACK PANTHER v3 #47)
Panther and company are still in the past.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48-FB (4:2-5)
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48-FB (3:2)
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48-FB (3:4-3:6)
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48-FB (11:3-14)
These flashbacks occur on the day that the Panther and company return from the past, the week before BP3 48-FB (2). Given
the placement of IM3 55/2 and 53-58 and A3 56 between BP2 45 and A3 57, the only way for only a week to exist between these
flashbacks and BP3-FB (2) is for T'Challa and crew to return to the present more than two weeks after the point they left the
present. T'Challa's future self collapses and must be returned to his chamber.
WOLVERINE v2 #179
One day. Shaman summons Wolverine from Westchester (where we see green grass and trees) to Canada to battle a demon who
has taken over Alpha Flight's headquarters and possessed Sasquatch, Puck, and Snowbird. Shaman mentions that Heather and
Mac are "occupied with the joyousness of Heather's pregnancy." Logan defeats the demon and frees Alpha Flight. Shaman tells
Logan that the demon wanted his protege, Chuck Moss, who Shaman asks Logan to train.
Wednesday, July 3
DAREDEVIL v2 #37 (13-21)
Probably the day after DD2 37 (7-12). Matt and Foggy meet with a Daily Globe exec, who vows to prove that Matt is Daredevil.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #15
One day. Heather Krolnek, a Spidey fan, learns her father is a criminal as Spider-Man shows up to capture him when he is
robbing a bank under the costumed identity of the Stag Beetle. Heather mentions her father has been leaving home at dawn
"every other night this week;" she also mentions the Scorpion to be in jail, so it's probably during the time Scorpion spends in
jail after his capture in SM:SC 1. The Beetle is also believed to be in jail (she doesn't know he is out as Mach 2).
AVENGERS v3 #57
One day. We see White House reconstruction, probably following the Panther-Iron Man battle in BP3 45 (not necessarily Kang
War destruction as implied). The Falcon is back with the Avengers, sporting a new costume; Cap's remarks about it suggest that
this is the first time it's been seen - thus this story must occur before M/DS 2/2. The Black Panther rejoins the Avengers,
probably after BP3 47, since Gyrich is still with him. Given that Scott Lang loses custody of his daughter in A3 62, and that
continuity from A3 57 to A3 62 is fairly tight, A3 57 probably occurs after MDS 3/2. Washington, where Yellowjacket and the
Wasp are, and earth's other capital cities are swallowed up by energy portals. Responding to the ensuing panic and anarchy, the
U.N. declares a state of emergency and asks the Avengers to restore order. The Eiffel Tower is shown here, apparently repaired
from its destruction in UX 406 (1-21).
ELEKTRA v2 #8 (13-16)
One day. Elektra's two victims arrive by freight in Crete. She nabs a third in Houston.
AVENGERS v3 #58 (1-16)
The same day as A3 57. As the Avengers deal with the fallout of the capital disappearances around the world, Iron Man/Tony
Stark addresses the U.N. Ant-Man mentions his child custody battle, and Namor shows up to rejoin the Avengers because the
void problem is wreaking havoc with the world's oceans.
WOLVERINE v2 #180 (1-19)
The day after W2 179. Logan trains Chuck Moss in British Columbia, where we see green grass and trees. Full moon.
Thursday, July 4: Independence Day
AVENGERS v3 #58 (17-22)
Early the morning after A3 58 (1-16). At 3:32 AM, She-Hulk and Warbird encounter the Scarlet Witch channeling the In-
Betweener. Yellowjacket and the Wasp survey the missing cities in the 13th dimension and are attacked by Scorpio.
WOLVERINE v2 #180 (20-23)
The morning after W2 180 (1-19). Chuck Moss passes his training and Logan gives him his totem, a worm, and calls him an
"Earthmover." This segment must occur sometime before XU 45 (1-24).
Friday, July 5
PUNISHER v6 #22 (20-21)
One day, a few days after PUN6 22 (1-19). The Punisher watches from a distance as Pearse and Seifert are buried. We see green
grass and trees and a few bare trees.
X-FACTOR v2 #2 (8-12)
One day. Aaron Kearse and Catherine Gray begin their investigation of "two months" of death threats against Tony Robb, so it
has been at least that long that baseball season as been going on. Green grass and trees.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #56
One night, before T:F 1 (5-16).
ELEKTRA v2 #8 (17-18)
One day. Elektra takes her fourth victim in Manhattan.
Saturday, July 6
X-MEN UNLIMITED #50 (1-22)
One night. In Tokyo, Logan defeats Azuma, a man out to get the mystical sword of a girl named Renge.
This entire reality-bending, 'Nuff Said story occurs in one second at midnight as X-Force relax at their headquarters.
BLADE v7 #3 -- FB (16:4-18:5)
Sunday, July 7
X-MEN UNLIMITED #50 (23-24)
The day after XU 50 (1-22). Logan and Renge part ways and Logan destroys her sword. If Logan does not return to Japan after
XU 39/2, then this segment must occur sometime before XU 39/2.
AVENGERS v3 #59
One day, enough "days" after A3 58 (1-16) for the Avengers to round up seventeen would-be dictators. Lord Thor appears here
in the costume first seen in T2 45. Jack of Hearts enters the Zero Room at 3:32 AM and is supposed to stay in there for "ten
hours." Green grass and trees in Virginia.
AVENGERS v3 #60 (1-24)
Same day as A3 59. Two teams of Avengers succeed in reuniting Order and Chaos into the In-Betweener. They defeat Scorpio
and the lost capital cities are returned to their rightful places.
Monday, July 8
AVENGERS v3 #60 (25-28)
The day after A3 60 (1-24). After the Avengers turn political power back to the U.N., the Secretary General calls with a
proposal. Meanwhile, Scorpio reports back to the Zodiac with data about the Avengers. I've placed this story before WX2 1, in
which Weapon X destroys Zodiac's headquarters. The Vision does not have the appearance he acquires in AI:V 1-4, so this must
occur before AI:V 1. The Eiffel Tower must appear here before its destruction in UX 406 (1-21).
AVENGERS ICONS: THE VISION #1
One night, perhaps the same night as A3 60 (25-28). Green grass and trees in Queens. The full moon may be topical. It must be
AVENGERS ICONS: THE VISION #2 (1-17)
Same night as AI:V 1.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #17 (20-22)
One day, "seven weeks" after TW 17 (1-19). The Spot shows up to see Tombstone (who has been operated for his heart
condition) for some retribution after helping him to get out of prison. Tombstone breaks the Spot's neck, killing him. The Spot
mentions Spidey to be "currently embroiled in a bout with that Octavius fellow...or was it Mysterio?" - this isn't necessarily a
reference to a published battle.
ELEKTRA v2 #8 (19-21)
One day. Elektra arrives in Crete with her third and fourth captives.
ELEKTRA v2 #9
The same day as ELEK2 8 (19-21). Electra refuses to torture and kill the men she's brought to Ione, but rather frees one of them
and leaves the others for Ione to torture and kill. Elektra blackmails Valance through Olson and Megaera.
SHE-HULK v4 #14 - FB (13:4-13:5)
One day. This flashback must occur before S-H3 6-FB (17:4). Mallory gives Awesome Android a slate on which to
Tuesday, July 9
AVENGERS ICONS: THE VISION #2 (18-22)
The day after AI:V 2 (1-17), a "Tuesday." We see warm weather (judging by clothing) and green grass and trees at Penn State,
where college is in session and was so the preceding week as well. This is probably a summer session.
AVENGERS ICONS: THE VISION #3
The same night as AI:V 2 (18-22). It is "a month" since Gremlin arrived in the U.S. Apparently Penn State students like to party
on a Tuesday night. Green grass and trees. Topical full moon.
AVENGERS ICONS: THE VISION #4
The same night as AI:V 3. Green trees in Philadelphia and Queens.
THING: FREAKSHOW #1 (5-14)
One day, after FF3 56. During the second parade held for the Fantastic Four this month, the FF battle the Wrecking Crew and
Wrecker pries off a small chunk of the Thing's hide. Afterward, the Thing gets honked off and leaves the Baxter Building. We
see green grass and trees in New York on "the fifteenth" of the month, but the appearance of a waning crescent moon in TW 18
places this segment a week earlier.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #18
The same day as T:F 1 (5-14). Spellcheck tries to ally Typeface when the later tries to capture the Penny-Ante gang. Then
Spider-Man finds Spellcheck hanging from a pole at the train station. The Thing is seen sitting at a train station, linked this issue
to T:F 1, and presumably placing it on "the fifteenth" of the month, but I'll go with the waning crescent moon here and place T:F
in this spot instead of the fifteenth. Ghost Rider is also at that train station. Coat weather in New York.
THING: FREAKSHOW #1 (15-16)
The same day as TW 18. The Thing hops a train for Myrtle Beach to get away from it all and falls asleep.
SECRET WAR #1 - FB - FB
One day. Killer Shrike is defeated by Iron Man and Thor, who appears in his Lord Thor raiment. I've placed this videotaped
flashback between A3 60 and 61, a time during which Lord Thor was hanging with the Avengers. This scene may occur many
months before SECWAR 1-FB (8-18).
Wednesday, July 10
AVENGERS v3 #61
One day, perhaps the day after AI:V 4. It is probably a couple of days after the end of A3 60, as news of the Avengers' new
status from the end of A3 60 is getting news coverage, and it's hard to believe that Thor would stick around for long after A3 60.
During this period of a couple of days, Ant-Man hangs around Avengers Mansion. Thor (to whom Wasp refers as a "king")
leaves for Asgard, not by walking out the door and flying up to his floating kingdom, but through inter-dimensional teleportation;
this suggests that A3 61 occurs before T2 46, the storyline that leads to Asgard over Manhattan. The Vision has a new
appearance here, resulting from his encounter with the Gremlin in AI:V 1-4, so enough time must pass between A3 60 and 61 for
that miniseries to occur. T'Challa probably appears here before the death of his future self in BP3 48-FB (2). It looks like Jack
of Hearts has 8 hours and 14 minutes left of being locked in the Zero Room, but it can't be less than two hours after A3 59 - this
must be a different period of confinement from that begun in A3 59; indeed the ten-hour lock-down must occur each day, as
revealed in A3 62. Green grass and trees in Manhattan.
THING: FREAKSHOW #1 (17-23)
The day after T:F 1 (15-16). The Thing awakens in Michigan, where we see green grass and trees. He stumbles upon a small
town and encounters a freak show.
THING: FREAKSHOW #2
The same day as T:F 1 (17-23). The Thing discovers that the townspeople are Kree and the freak show consists of Skrulls led by
Paibok. Green grass and trees in Michigan.
THING: FREAKSHOW #3
The same day as T:F 2. Caught in a square-off between Kree and Skrulls, Ben regurgitates an egg that hatches into Staak the
Evolver, then discovers a baby Watcher. Green grass and trees in Michigan.
THUNDERBOLTS #67 (5:3-16)
One day. It is "eight weeks" after TB 64 (22-23) and "twelve weeks" after TB 67-FB (4). In his search for Justin Hammer's
secret weapon, Hawkeye leads his new team of Thunderbolts to Symkaria, where they encounter Silver Sable and where we see
green grass and trees.
MARVEL DOUBLE SHOT #2 (1-9)
One day. Doom entertains a Russian symphony and talks with reporter Karen Sutter that has altered to look like his lost love,
Valeria. Doom appears here sometime after his return from Counter-Earth.
CAGE v2 #1
One day. Luke Cage drinks and gets hired to find a victim's killer. Given Cage's costume, this story must occur after M/K 15.
CAGE v2 #2
The same day as CAGE2 1. Full moon.
PUNISHER v6 #23 (1-7)
One night. At a mob poker game in New York, the other players tease Sid Saggio for his bizarre hobby - hunting for giant squid
in Brooklyn. The Punisher bursts in and kills everyone; Sid is in the toilet and escapes through the window. As he runs down
the street, he is confronted by the ghosts of the other players.
Thursday, July 11
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #39 (6-22:2)
Mary Jane attends a movie premiere at night of the same day of ASM2 39 (1-5) (probably past midnight in New York at this
point) and later at home watches the repeat of the Spider-Man news before going to sleep which she doesn't get to do until is time
to get up already. That morning in New York, aunt May cancels subscriptions to papers that don't like Spidey, she decides not to
e-mail the Bugle though (in ASM2 40 May states she didn't cancel her Bugle subscription because she wanted to do it personally
having known Jonah for so long), then tries to improve Spider-Man's image by writing to different TV shows. At night Spider-Man rescues people from fire and after seeing M.J. in a Times Square screen thinks about calling her but doesn't do it.
Later Peter has dinner with his aunt.
CAGE v2 #3
The early morning after CAGE2 2. Luke heads over to a bar and stays until it closes. He has sex with the bartender before finally
MARVEL DOUBLE SHOT #2 (10-11)
The morning after M/DS 2 (1-9). Doom has breakfast and Karen Sutter commits suicide.
THING: FREAKSHOW #4
The morning after T:F 3. Ben is last seen starting an 80-mile walk back to Manhattan in the rain. It is shortly before FF3 57.
UNCANNY X-MEN #407 (16-23)
The day after UX 407 (1-15). The X-Men pick up Nightcrawler and Chamber in the snowy Bavarian Alps.
THUNDERBOLTS #67 (17-22)
The day after TB 67 (5-16). Hawkeye's Thunderbolts face off against Crimson Cowl's Masters of Evil in Symkaria.
The same day as TB 67 (17-22). Hawkeye's Thunderbolts defeat Crimson Cowl and the Masters and SHIELD shows up to claim
Plantman. Green grass and trees in Symkaria.

MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END #3
MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END #4
MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END #5
MARVEL UNIVERSE: THE END #6
One day. This series occurs during the span of a few moments, as just prior to the end of END 6, the Marvel Universe is re-
booted to a point in time just prior to END 1. The Surfer refers to Strange, Namor, and the green-skinned Hulk as his "once-
fellow Defenders," an indication that this segment occurs after ORDER 6. Beast is cat-like and the X-Men are in their Morrison
outfits. Xavier is in a wheelchair, which seemingly places this segment before X 126 - however, since this is probably the real
Xavier (not Cassandra Nova) and Angel is with the X-Men, that places this segment after X 126, and since Chamber and Stacy X
are with the X-Men, that places this segment after X 400 - Xavier may still be using the wheelchair at times, as he did in
ORDER 5-6, during weeks of physical therapy (helping him get used to the use of his legs), but this segment must definitely
occur before X 127, in which Xavier walks without difficulty. Peter Parker is in the apartment into which he moved in PPSM2
30. Ant-Man is with the Avengers and Yellowjacket and Wasp are present as well, so this segment must occur after A3 60 (1-24)
- and since a bearded Lord Thor is shown on his throne in Asgard, this segment must occur after his departure from the Avengers
in A3 61. Archangel has white skin, but this story must occur before UX 413, while he had blue skin; this may be chalked up to
a coloring error or an image inducer used for no good reason. Gambit is with the X-Treme team and Sage is not catatonic, so this
segment must occur after XX 9. Storm is not in a wheelchair in the few panels in which she appears, but even more significantly,
Rogue and Gambit have their powers (Rogue is hovering in air and Gambit has a deck of charged cards in one two-page spread in
END 1), placing this before the Khan storyline in XX 10. T'Challa still has the Panther identity, so this segment must occur
before his future self is slain in BP3 48-FB (2:3-2:5). Spider-Woman is shown in the costume worn by Spider-Girl and must
appear here before ALIAS 16. Captain Marvel is not insane, so this segment must occur before CM6 1. Aurora must be
summoned from the institution in which she's been housed since W2 173/2. Erik Josten and Dallas Riordan are not separated, so
this story must occur before TB 74. All these clues lead me to place this segment on July 11, right after the Thing's return to the
FF from T:F 4, right after the X-Men's return from the Alps in UX 407 (16-23), and right before the slaying of T'Challa's future
self in BP3 48-FB (2:3-2:5). This would mean that both Xavier and Storm have been in physical therapy for more than a month
by this point. Green grass and trees.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48-FB (15-22:1)
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48-FB (2:3-2:5)
These two flashbacks occur one day during the week after other flashbacks in BP3 48, as noted by the narrative statement, "next
week." A3 57-61 occupy that week nicely. T'Challa's future self is slain by M'Baku. This likely occurs after the Panther's
appearance in A3 61, since he spends the three days after this brooding and then gives up his Panther identity in BP3 49.
PUNISHER v6 #23 (8-9)
The day after PUN6 23 (1-7). Sid is still tormented by the ghosts as he tries to get on with his life.
One day, "weeks" after TB 64 (13-21). Zemo's Thunderbolts investigate Paris of Counter-Earth (annihilated by the arrival of the
Rip "sixteen months ago") and encounter the Rip and the Anomaly. Full moon on Counter-Earth.
The same day as TB 69. I have Citizen V here after CV&VB:E 4 (21-23). Hawkeye's Thunderbolts battle SHIELD and claim
Plantman for themselves.
The same night as TB 70. Zemo's Thunderbolts deal with the Anomaly, meet up with the Young Allies, and are faced with
determining the fate of Counter-Earth. Full moon on Counter-Earth.
THUNDERBOLTS #73 (1-22:2)
The same night as TB 71. Citizen V calls on Hawkeye's Thunderbolts to deal with a white hole being created around the V-
THUNDERBOLTS #74 (1-21:2)
The same night as TB 72. Zemo's Thunderbolts deal with the void on Counter-Earth and end up getting shuttled back to earth,
THUNDERBOLTS #73 (22:3-22:4) ~ THUNDERBOLTS #74 (21:3-21:4)
The same night as TB 74 (1-21). The Thunderbolts are reunited.
THUNDERBOLTS #74 (22)
The same night as TB 74 (21).
THUNDERBOLTS #75 (1-23)
The same night as TB 74 (22). Members of the Thunderbolts catch up and make decisions about their future. Nice weather on
the Canary Islands. Full moon.
Friday, July 12
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #39 (22:3-22:8)
Early one morning. Mary Jane, Aunt May and Peter are shown sleeping (it's 3:33 AM on Peter's clock).
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #40
One day. Spider-Man catches two bank robbers before school. May tells Jonah that she's canceling her Bugle subscription. At
night Spider-Man battles the Shade after learning he has been abducting people to the Astral Plane, the Shade escapes. May
informs Peter Mary Jane will be in town next week. Warm weather.
CAGE v2 #4
The day after CAGE2 3. There's mention of a recently announced "second quarter earnings report" on the TV, so this series
must occur no earlier than July. Placement here also ties in with the full moon shown in CAGE2 2. Luke is beaten up pretty badly
at the end of this issue.
The night of high school graduation, a "couple of months" before BS 1. Placement here is roughly consistent with the placement
of ASM2 43 (1-6) a week later, which assumes a late school year because of the disruptions of the Kang War. Feeva uses
Fateball, Mize, and Jughandle to complete a test to get into the Pegasus Institute, foe which she needs to leave "tomorrow" to
take "summer classes." We see a waning crescent moon.
THUNDERBOLTS #75 (24-37)
The day after TB 75 (1-23). It is "all these months" before A/TB 3 (6-22). Songbird makes reference to Skein having been
involved with the Thunderbolts for "months,"but it can't be that long since TB 65. After reuniting, the Thunderbolts roster is
shaken up, and Hawkeye, after being duped into handing the team over to Zemo, is brought to Washington DC by Moonstone.
After this, Clint is free to participate in M/DS 2/2 and shoot Batroc with an arrow (DL 2). Nice weather in the Canary Islands.
X-TREME X-MEN #10
X-TREME X-MEN #11 (1-10)
The same night as XX 10. Given that we have the introduction of the Grell-Ryan armor so close before the Kang War proper,
Khan's invasion almost has to occur afterwards. The White House has been restored by this point. The Avengers appear here.
Thor is shown behind a word balloon in one panel; if his presence here is canon, then this depiction of him in his classic costume
must be an error because this story leads to the injury of Storm and the loss of power for Gambit and Rogue and thus must occur
after END, in which Thor appears in his Lord Thor costume. My theory is that word of the Khan situation forced Thor to leave
Asgard to re-join the Avengers (so soon - a day - after his departure in A3 61) to help deal with it; he is still with the team in
M/DS 2/2 after the assignment is done. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #1 - FB (2:1-2:2)

WOLVERINE v2 #181 - FB
One night. According to the narration in W2 186, it is "a few weeks" after PUN6 17. Logan kills Freddo Mazzo's mobsters,
who hold a young girl hostage in a bar.
WOLVERINE v2 #181
The same night as W2 181-FB. Logan frees the girl.
Saturday, July 13
WOLVERINE v2 #182
The day after W2 181, judging from the newspaper coverage, although Johnny refers to W2 181 as having occurred "that night,"
rather than "last night." It is "one week" before W2 183 (19-21). Wolverine arrives at the home of Freddo Mazzo with the hand
of one of the mobsters he killed and offers to destroy rival mob boss, the Roman, if Freddo forgives a $20K marker against the
father of the girl. Freddo accepts. Green grass and trees in New Jersey.
CAGE v2 #5
The day after CAGE2 4. The bartender mentions sleeping with Luke "the other night," confirming that the entire limited series
lasts no more than a few days. This story must occur before Cage's appearance as Murdock's bodyguard in DD2 36 (5-13).
PUNISHER v6 #23 (10-11)
The "Saturday" after PUN6 23 (8-9). The ghosts plague Sid as he hunts for squid. They demand that he avenges their deaths.
X-TREME X-MEN #14
The night of the day after XX 13 (5-22).
X-TREME X-MEN #15
The same night as XX 14.
X-TREME X-MEN #16

X-TREME X-MEN #18
The same night as XXX 1-FB (1:2). It is "a few weeks" before XXX 1 (1-4) and "not long" before XX 20. Storm, Rogue, and
Gambit are gravely injured. Cap, Iron Man, and Thing appear, as do Nightcrawler (probably before UX 408) and Beast and Jean
MARVEL DOUBLE SHOT #2/2 (1-7)
One day. I theorize that the Avengers are returning from dealing with the Khan situation in Madripoor and that this story begins
the same day as XX 18. Concerned for her beloved Thor, the Enchantress convinces Loki to play pranks on Thor and his friends
rather than launch a wicked scheme to subdue the thunder god. Invisible, Loki plays his pranks at Avengers Mansion, where we
see green trees. Among those present are: Thor, who I suggest is still here after helping the Avengers with the Khan situation in
XX 11-18, and wearing (correctly this time) the costume first seen in T2 45; Hawkeye is apparently here after TB 75 (24-37) -
he's still wearing his Thunderbolts belt buckle here; Iron Man, in Grell-Ryan armor; and Falcon, who is wearing the costume
introduced in A3 57. Black Panther is not present, suggesting placement after BP3 48-FB (2). Ant-Man is not present,
suggesting placement before A3 62. Now that Clint is back, he and Cap may have their "date" with
Sunday, July 14
MARVEL DOUBLE SHOT #2/2 (8-11)
The morning after M/DS 2/2 (1-7). Jarvis exposes Loki as the prankster and Thor wallops the god of mischief. Since Thor was
rendered bald here, we must allow enough time between now and his next appearance (I suggest T2 46) for his hair to grow back.
It will be "too long" before Thor and Iron Man meet again, in T2 58.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #48
One day, "three days" after BP3 49-FB (2), during which time T'Challa broods over the death of his future self.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #49
The same day as BP3 48. T'Challa gives up his Panther identity and is missing and presumed dead during the "months" between
BP3 49 and BP3 52.
ELEKTRA v2 #10
One day. Elektra arrives in New York City and meets with a contractor who warns her that she is drawing too much attention
before he is shot dead by a sniper. The high profile could help explain how Black Widow was able to contact her so quickly
between DD 36 (5-13) and DD 37 (2-6).
UNCANNY X-MEN #408 (1-18)
One day. The events of UX 407 are noted as "recent." I place Nightcrawler here after XX 18. Indeed, Warren is asked when
Paris will be rebuilt, placing this issue sometime before X 128, where the Eiffel Tower is shown rebuilt. The X-Men mop up the
Vanisher's drug operation from UX '01 ("remember Cuba?").
Monday, July 15
UNCANNY X-MEN #408 (19-23)
The morning after UX 408 (1-18), "a week" before UX 409 (1-11).
MARVEL ADVENTURES #1
One day. Given Hawkeye's appearance here in classic costume, this story probably occurs after TB 75 (24-37) and perhaps
around the time Clint hangs with the Avengers briefly in M/DS 2/2. According to a newspaper headline, "Hulk Rampage Causes
Rush Hour Gridlock!" - if this story is from earlier in the day, then it must be a weekday. A man named Dunn is released from
Riker's Island after a ten-year incarceration. In all that time the police never found where he stashed his stolen loot. He wants to
retrieve it, but the police will be keeping a close eye on him, so he unleashes several robots, the location of which was given to
him by "his cellmate, a criminal mastermind," as a distraction. The robots rampage through midtown Manhattan and Chinatown
and are defeated by Daredevil, Stupid Hulk, the Invisible Woman, Hawkeye, and Captain America. One smashed robot begins to
display a recording, taken unbeknownst to Dunn, of him musing out loud about the location of his loot, and when Dunn surfaces
from a large hole he's dug in Central Park, he finds all five heroes waiting for him. Green grass and trees in New York.
PUNISHER v6 #23 (12-22)
One day during the week after PUN6 23 (10-11). At Lucky's Bar, Soap tells the Punisher that Sid phoned him at work that
morning and left details of a time and place where it would happen. Soap gives the Punisher the details. The Punisher duly turns
up, and fights a bunch of henchmen in an abandoned warehouse. After killing them all, he realizes that Saggio isn't there. In
fact, Saggio has wired the building with explosives, and detonates them from outside. The Punisher escapes in time. Saggio
confronts him on the docks. He is about to shoot the Punisher when a giant squid yanks him into the sea and kills him. The other
ghosts aren't too impressed with Sid's "revenge." But Sid doesn't care because he's been proved right - there really are giant
squid in New York.
NEW AVENGERS: ILLUMINATI v2 #4
One day. This story occurs after M/BOY 6 (22-23). The Illuminati gather and Strange tells them that Clea left him; she may have stayed with him for several weeks following ORDER 6 and returned to the Dark Dimension just before this story. Iron Man is in his Grell armor, Namor in his trunks, and Xavier in a wheelchair, perhaps during the time he's in physical therapy prior to X 127. The Illuminati visit Noh-Varr in his cell at the Cube and offer him a chance to earn his way out of prison and serve humanity. They cite Mar-Vell as a role model. Reed returns to the Baxter Building and asks Sue if she would like to go on a date or have a picnic "tomorrow" with the "kids," placing this story after FF3 54. Leafy tree in New York.
BLADE v7 #6 -- FB (5:4-5:6)
One day. Spider-Man talks to a police Lieutenant to help him find out about the Shade. As she writes letters to different
publications, before having dinner, May tells Peter Mary Jane called to confirm she'll be flying in on "Tuesday," which must be
tomorrow. Green grass and trees and light clothing. Full moon.
Tuesday, July 16
AVENGERS v3 #62
One day, sometime shortly after A3 61. Pym concludes that Jack must stay in the containment room fourteen hours a day instead
of ten, and he notes that Jack "spent the last few years in space." Scott Lang loses his daughter in a custody hearing (it must be a
weekday), so this issue must occur after ALIAS 15 (10-21), in which he tells Jessica that he doesn't know what his life would be
like without Cassie. Ant-Man officially joins the Avengers in this issue; his absence from M/DS 2/2 suggests that that issue
occurs before now. The Black Panther is not seen in this issue. Green grass and trees in Manhattan.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #41 (10:6-20/21:6)
The rainy day after ASM2 41 (10-22). Spider-Man learns the Shade might have gotten his powers from a jail mate called
Richard Cranston, who is now in a mental institution. Then he goes to see Dr. Strange.

The same day as ASM2 41 (10-21). From a point in the future, a non-corporeal Dr. Strange takes an injured, non-material Spidey to his Sanctum Sanctorum to treat him. Strange restores them to physical form.

The same day as FNSM 24 (21-22). On "Tuesday," the day Peter is supposed to pick up M.J. at the airport, Spidey goes to the Astral Plabe after the Shade abducts Jennifer Hardesty. Since time doesn't work the same in the Astral Plane as in reality, according to the Shade, at some point during their stay in the Astral Plane (say, page 12) it's past midnight.
PUNISHER v6 #24
One night. The Punisher attacks Monk Macchio's crew at their "Tuesday night" pool game. His gun jams, and the mobsters flee
onto the street. The Punisher follows them and kills all but one. He follows the survivor into the subway, where he encounters
"the man down below," a homicidal maniac who's been killing homeless people. Punisher also encounters social worker Jen,
who was led to the underground lair by a homeless man from her soup kitchen. Frank battles the MDB's henchmen and Jen falls
down a hole and lands on the pile of corpses.
PUNISHER v6 #25
The same night as PUN6 24. The Punisher escapes the henchmen and returns to the surface. He goes home to get more
equipment. He returns to the tunnels and meets Jen climbing out. She directs him to the corpse pile. The Punisher promptly sets

The same night as PUN6 25. Jen follows the Punisher back into the tunnels. The Punisher fights off the henchmen and then
torches the corpse pile, killing "the man down below." The Punisher and Jen return to the surface.
Wednesday, July 17
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #42 (13-22)
One day. Spider-Man fights the Shade in the astral plane and after being thrown to where his abducted people had been staying,
the Shade explodes. Spidey then helps people to get out of astral plane but lets himself to be drawn to a place where he finds a
gigantic Spider, when he leaves he is still in Astral form and realizes it's already "Wednesday, July 17." Mary Jane can't see him
in astral form when he finds her boarding a plane to go back to LA. After school being canceled by snow, probably the Kang
War, and an Osborn Industries truck collision against 108 PS's wall, school must be still in session by this time of year, as it
probably still is in XU 36.
CAPTAIN AMERICA: WHAT PRICE GLORY #1 (1-21:7)
One evening. Steve Rogers drops in on old friends Kate and Sal (who is celebrating a birthday), then he checks on reports of
mob violence and ends up being escorted to the home of Charles Frizini. Frizini asks Steve to rescue his daughter Pasha from the
life she's made with mobster Nicoli Spano in Las Vegas. Frizini notes Steve's "anonymity," so this limited series must occur
before CA4 1 (21-32). We see long sleeves and a reference to there being "a cold wind coming" in New York. The full moon is
inconsistent with the lunar phases elsewhere in this story.
Thursday, July 18
CAPTAIN AMERICA: WHAT PRICE GLORY #1 (21:8-21:10)

Friday, July 19
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #43 (1:1-1:6)
One day. Peter is figuring out a way to apologize to Mary Jane for presumably standing her up in ASM2 42. It is the last day of
school before a "holiday break," probably summer break, since we see a banner that looks like it says, "Have a great summer."
(This may be the end of a school year that is extended a month because of the disruptions of the Kang War.) Peter's
conversation with a fellow teacher indicates that the break is lengthy enough for a trip or for finding a way to earn extra money.
UNCANNY X-MEN #409 (1-11)

is revealed to be Pasha's father and Cap discovers that Sal and Kate manipulated him into the entire situation. Spano notes that
"it looks to be a promising summer." Green grass and trees in New York. There is a reference to the Twin Towers being gone,
so this story occurs after 9-11.

The day after DD2 38 (7-9). Matt Murdock visits Hector Ayala at Ryker's and takes his case.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #60 (3-9)

dimension. Johnny has broken up with a celebrity named Jennifer. Sue refers to Franklin as a "seven-year-old" (yeah, sure...);
this may be an internal reference to the fact that this segment occurs before Franklin's purported eighth birthday in FOUR 1 (1-

phone with Matt.
SOLDIER X #2
Probably the night of the day after SX 1. Nathan and Blaquesmith are now in Moscow.
PUNISHER v6 #27 (1-4)
One "Monday evening." Elektra probably appears in this story between ELEK2 10 and 11, when she's in New York without
work and going mad from the lack of conflict; even Frank comments that she's insane. Punisher tries to kill mobster Figsy
Goleano, but Elektra shows up and kills him first. Leafy trees.

Tony Ditello. Freddo shows Wolvie that day's edition of the Daily Bugle; its front page article is titled, "Freddie Got Fingered.

GHOST RIDER v3 #2 (14:2-22)
The day after GR3 2 (1-14). On a "Saturday morning," an injured Johnny Blaze awakens and demands an exorcism from a
priest. On "Saturday afternoon," Johnny tells Gunmetal Gray, a mercenary killer biker, that he wants Ghost Rider dead. Green
grass and trees in Maryland.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #60 (19-22)
On a "Saturday," the day after FF3 60 (18), Schertzer reports back on his week with the FF and Reed tells Valeria the reason he
wants the FF to be celebrities.
X-MEN UNLIMITED #36 (1-12)
A "Saturday" during a college semester, which I conclude is a short summer quarter during which some classes are held,
including the physics tutorial shown later in MEK; a number of students are hanging around campus during this time. Kitty
refers to her life before the X-Men as having been "five years ago," but it must be longer than that, especially given that: she
tends bar, an indication that she's at least 21; and that she was noted as being 13 ½ in UX 129. We see green grass and trees as
Kitty walks across the campus of the University of Chicago, mulling over the destruction of Genosha and passing the booths of
advocacy groups, including Citizens for Humanity. She goes to her apartment (last seen in XX '01/2) and that night, she tends
bar at the Belles of Hell. On the way home, she witnesses an explosion in a high-rise and helps victims escape the fire.
X-FORCE #125 (10-22)
Perhaps the day after XFO 125 (4-9). X-Force are set up on a mission to reclaim a space station taken over by prison inmates
mutated by the CIA, under the guise of a mission to save earth from aliens. Dead Girl joins the team.
The same day as XFO 125 (10-22).
The same day as XFO 126.
The same day as XFO 127. Edie Sawyer dies. It is "weeks" before XS 1 (16-23), "months" before XS 10, and presumably just
under "four months" before XS 2 (14-22), but that last reference may be wrong.
PUNISHER v3 #27 (13)
The day after PUN6 27 (12:3) - a "Saturday." Elektra kills Don Alberto Luigi Pariani before Punisher can do it.
WEAPON X: ZERO #1 (14-22)
Zero finally goes on his mission to kill Wolverine, probably after months of other missions for Weapon X. He fails, and is
punished by the Director. The Director sits in his office watching multiple monitors, on which we see Agent Zero, Spider-Man,
Captain America, Four Freedoms Plaza, and what are probably an Avengers Quinjet and the Hulk. The Agent Zero feed is live,
but the shot of Four Freedoms Plaza is clearly taped (the Plaza hasn't existed on earth since FF3 15 or so). In WX 0.5 we see this
same set-up, and several of the Director's monitor feeds are clearly taped there too. The Director has a folder on his desk in
which we see photos of Wolvie and Deadpool. We see this exact same folder on his desk, with the exact same photos, in WX 0.5,
implying, possibly, that this sequence takes place around the same time period as WX 0.5. This is probably the only clue we
have to placing this sequence, other than the fact that Wolvie has two good eyes here, placing it after W2 169. I have Logan here
between pages of UX 409, which would make sense, as Logan is in New York at this time.
Sunday, July 28
X-MEN UNLIMITED #36 (13-15)
The day after XU 36 (1-12). Kitty fights a bunch of anti-mutant students and gets academic probation and an order to undergo
mandatory psychological counseling, which we see begin in MEK 1 (3-14). Kitty's appearance in XX 19 must be after this story,
as this occurrence of "trouble at school" is mentioned in XX 19. And given that the psychological counseling that is supposed to
begin "immediately" starts in MEK 1, both XX 19 and the MEK series must span a short amount of time after this.
X-FORCE #129 (1-10)
Probably the day after XFO 128. Orphan announces that Edie Sawyer is dead and the media have a field day. Spike notes that
X-Force will be looking at replacements "tomorrow." Green grass and trees.
WEAPON X #0.5 (1-13)
Probably the same day as XFO 129, since Orphan announces the X-Force tryouts on TV. The issue opens with the Director
going through the folder we saw in WX:ZERO, musing about the men who have given him trouble -- Wolvie, Deadpool...and
Sabretooth, who we see is the third photo in the folder. The Director ruminates on past events up through W2 176which places
WX 0.5 after W2 176, and likely places WX:Z (14-22) after W2 176 as well. We see several scenes on the Director's screens on
page 12, but nothing all that "current" to indicate what other events might be taking place "now." We see Iron Man in his Grell-
Ryan armor, indicating that this issue takes place after the wrap of the Kang War. The Director decides that it's time for a draft of
new operatives in this issue (p.12), which places it before the rest of the "Draft" one-shots.
AGENT X #1 (1-11)
One day, sometime after DP3 69 (9-22). Agent X arrives badly injured at Sandi's apartment. He is given the name "Alex
Hayden" and Sandi asks Taskmaster to train him. Meanwhile, Higaski struggles to assert his authority as the new leader of the
Four Winds organization.
PUNISHER v6 #27 (14-23)
The day after PUN6 27 (13) - a "Sunday." Elektra kills Skinny Vic Strega and waits for Punisher to show up. Elektra explains
that she's been killing out of boredom and invites Frank to dinner "tomorrow night."
CALL OF DUTY #1 (1-9:6)
One day. Police sergeant Frank Gunzer enters a hostage situation in which a man kills his daughter and shoots Gunzer's partner
Sammy before being killed by backup cops. Gunz then sees a blond girl who speaks an ominous message of death before
CALL OF DUTY: THE BROTHERHOOD #1 (1-19)
The same night as COD 1 (1-9). While fighting a fire, fireman James MacDonald sees the blond girl, who gives the same
ominous message of death before mysteriously vanishing again. The injured MacDonald is taken from the scene in an ambulance
with EMT Jennifer Montez, but the ambulance encounters a car wreck.
CALL OF DUTY: THE BROTHERHOOD #1 (20-21:3) ~ CALL OF DUTY #1 (9:7-10)
The same night as COD:B 1 (1-19). Montez encounters the blond girl and her disappearing act at the car wreck. Gunz shows up
and they start to compare notes with MacDonald. This segment is noted in COD:W 1 as having occurred "the other day."
CALL OF DUTY: THE BROTHERHOOD #1 (21:4-27:2)
The same night as COD:B 1 (20-21). At the hospital, Montez, MacDonald, and Gunz compare notes about the blond girl. "9-
11" is referenced in a scene with MacDonald and fellow firefighter Mick.
GHOST RIDER v3 #3
The day after GR3 2 (14-22). On a "Sunday afternoon," Gunmetal Gray catches up with Ghost Rider and blows his head off, but
Ghost Rider's head reassembles and he gets away. On "Sunday evening," Gunmetal uses a truck full of liquid nitrogen on Ghost
Rider, but fails to kill him. Johnny Blaze reveals to Gunmetal that he himself is Ghost Rider. Green grass and trees in Maryland.
GHOST RIDER v3 #4 (1-13)
The same night as GR3 3. Just as Gunmetal is about to pop Johnny, the police show up, and Gunmetal goes one way and Johnny
goes another with a guy named Juneau. Green grass and trees in Maryland. Full moon.
Monday, July 29
GHOST RIDER v3 #4 (14-22)
The morning after GR3 4 (1-13). On a "Monday morning," Gunmetal Gray shows up at a Chicago precinct to warn Detective
Harlan Smith that he's Ghost Rider's next target. Juneau leads Johnny to an encampment in Illinois, but Johnny turns to Ghost
Rider and heads to Chicago, where he finds that Gunmetal has roughed up Smith, creating a grudge match with Ghost Rider.
GHOST RIDER v3 #5 (1-2)
The same morning as GR3 4 (14-22). Gunmetal kills Detective Smith.
AGENT X #1 (12-13:2)
The day after AX 1 (1-11). Taskmaster begins to train Agent X on "training day one."
X-FORCE #129 (11-19)
The day after XFO 129 (1-10). Washout and other hopefuls audition for a spot on X-Force in the Mohave Desert. The Orphan
then appears on Lacuna's TV show to talk about Edie.
WEAPON X #0.5 (13-16)
Probably the same day as XFO 129 (11-19), since the Director recruits Washout from the X-Force open tryout shown in that
issue. Washout is transformed into a water-based life form.
CALL OF DUTY: THE BROTHERHOOD #1 (27:3-29)
The day after COD:B 1 (21-27). MacDonald is placed off duty for "seven days" and he watches his "brothers" go out on a call.
Green trees in New York.
ELEKTRA v2 #11 - FB (5-6)
One day, "three weeks" before ELEK2 11. This segment should occur after PUN6 27 (14-23). Elektra is now in Miami, still job
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #19 (1-4)
One day. A few days after getting out of prison, the Grizzly gets his first welfare check and puts his ad in the personals looking
for an "animal lover picnic partner." Later finds out Rhino lives at the same apartment complex Grizzly asks Rhino to keep out
of his way because he's now going straight.
Tuesday, July 30
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - SAURON #1 (1-7)
One day, sometime after WX.5 (13-16), according to Jeph. The Director informs Kane, Mesmero, Sauron, Wild Child, and
Agent Jackson that they have assignments to bring new recruits into the Weapon X program. Marrow is not present, presumably
because her surgery of WX:M 1 (1-18) has not yet occurred. Sauron flies to Xavier's to recruit Emma Frost, who is seen with
the diamond-like skin she acquires in X 116. Frost takes control of Sauron's mind and sends him away to fetch his "plan B"
recruit. Green grass and trees in New York.
AGENT X #1 (13:3-13:4)
The day after AX 1 (12-13). It is Agent X's "training day two."
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #19 (5-13)
The Grizzly finds he has no messages for his personal, a "summer" day with hot temperatures, the day after TW 19 (1-4). He
then sees the Rhino everywhere he goes, later that night he has a few drinks at the V-Bar and after the Rhino steals his last little
piece of toilet paper they start fighting and break the wall; outside Spider-Man beats them and leaves them tied up. Full moon.
WOLVERINE v2 #186
One day, shortly after W2 185 (9-21). This story is a follow-up to PUN6 17, and it's clear that Logan and the Punisher haven't
seen each other since then, so this story must occur before PUN6 33. Upset about Logan's handling of Johnny Delacavva, the
Punisher goes after the mutant, who defeats him. Green grass and bushes.
One day, two years before ("the year before last") X:ES 1. While traveling for "six weeks" recruiting mutants for the Institute, Scott Summers meets a boy surnamed Landru.
UNCANNY X-MEN #409 (12-13)
One night, "two weeks" after UX 409 (1-11). All that time, Stacy X has used her power to distract the Vanisher. Shortly before
the arranged meeting seen in UX 409 (14-24).
Wednesday, July 31
AGENT X #1 (13:5-13:6)
The day after AX 1 (13:3-13:4). On "training day three," Agent X gets beaten up by Taskmaster. It is "a few days" before AX
GHOST RIDER v3 #5 (3)
One day, two days after GR3 5 (1-2). On "Wednesday" at "3:26 A.M.," Gunmetal catches up with Johnny Blaze in Sioux Falls
but Johnny escapes.
UNCANNY X-MEN #409 (14-24)
The narrative tells us that it's "Wednesday, July 3." I suggest that a digit is missing and that it's actually Wednesday, July 31. It
is shortly after UX 409 (12-13). The X-Men put the Vanisher out of business.
SOLDIER X #7 (1-21)
One day, "a week" after SX 6. Nathan saves a bunch of children from death at the order of Pakistani General Daid-Khan, who is
killed. Nathan encounters Nigel Novotny, aka Blaquesmith. Snow on the ground in the mountains of Kashmir. Full moon.
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - SAURON #1 (8-19)
Probably the day after WX:S 1 (1-7), given the fact that Sauron comes to his senses and realizes that he has flown from New
York to Australia. While Sauron recruits Jack in Australia (where we see green grass and trees), the Director, Agent Jackson,
and Kane discuss the probability of success for other Weapon X members on a night with a full moon.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #19 (14-17)
The night after TW 19. Grizzly gets somebody answering for his personal ad but realizes he's out of practice. Later the Rhino,
who also just got a date, cheers him up telling him a thing he learned "lately" (in TW 5-6) don't try to be something you're not
and just be yourself. Grizzly goes back and sets up a date for "tomorrow at 3:00" at the zoo.
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - WILD CHILD #1 (1-4:4)
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - WILD CHILD #1 (10:4-17)
On a night with a full moon, Wild Child breaks Aurora out of a psychiatric hospital in Manitoba (where she has been since W2
173/2), where it is snowing. This segment must occur after Aurora's appearance with Alpha Flight in W2 172. It is "six months"
after WX:WC 1-FB.
Thursday, August 1
SOLDIER X #7 (22)
Early the morning after SX 7 (1-21). Nathan and Blaquesmith leave the Kashmir village at sunrise.
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - WILD CHILD #1 (18-20)
Early the morning after WX:WC 1 (10-17). Agent Jackson retrieves Wild Child and Aurora in snowy Manitoba. It is "three
months" before WX:WC 1 (21-23).
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - SAURON #1 (20-22)
The morning after WX:S 1 (8-19). Sauron returns from Australia with Jack in a box. We see an uninjured Kane here, so this
segment occurs before WX:M 1 (1-18).
INHUMANS v4 #1 (1-7)
One day. The Inhumans play ball on the moon. The snow and bare trees in New York must be topical. Full moon.
NEW X-MEN #127
One day. A mutant community is starting to grow in Alphabet City. Professor X is walking without difficulty, so this story must
occur after entries we've slated to occur during a period of weeks of his physical therapy - ORDER 5-6, END 6 (20-22), and NA:I2 4. Paris is probably rebuilding BTS.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #19 (18-20:3)
One day. The Grizzly hides thinking his date is an approaching fat lady and a zoo guard fires him a dart putting him to sleep,
thus missing his date. At night the Grizzly apologizes through the internet and manages to get another date.
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - MARROW #1 (1-18)
One day. Given the full moon in WX:M 1 (19-22), this segment probably occurs the same day as WX:S 1 (20-22). The
Weapon X program transforms Marrow's body to pass for normal. It is right after her surgery that Marrow is given her orders,
which other Weapon X inductees already received in WX:S 1 (1-19). "Hours" after the surgery, she goes on assignment and
wounds Agent Kane badly enough that he needs "minor rehab," and possibly badly enough to delay his own "Draft" assignment,
so placement here is between WX:S 1 (20-22) and WX:K 1.
GHOST RIDER v3 #5 (4-22)
The night of the day after GR3 5 (3). Johnny meets a girl named Piston and they go to a bar. Gunmetal catches up with Johnny
and a chase ensues, culminating in the death of Gunmetal's friend Magnus.

compound and becomes a member of the group.

The morning after GR3 6 (1-4). Johnny calls Chloe to say goodbye. Green trees in South Dakota.

San assumes a smaller, weaker form.
X-FORCE #129 (20-22)
One day, probably a few days after XFO 129 (11-19), long enough for X-Force to be inundated with calls, e-mails and letters
about the group's new name. Orphan announces that X-Force is now X-Statix.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #19 (20:4-22)
Probably the day after TW 19 (18-20:3). The Grizzly finds out his "cyber date" is actually the Rhino. The Grizzly decides to go
back to crime.

One night. Al Kraven tries to stop the Punisher from killing a couple of guys but the Punisher knock him out and proceeds to kill
GET KRAVEN #1/2
The same night as GK 1/2-FB. Al Kraven gets to the V-Bar to meet somebody "at nine," the bartender hopes it's not the Green
Goblin again (as in TW 13). Spider-Man shows up and after fighting another villains (the Grizzly among them, back in crime
after TW 19), he meets Timber Hughs (Kraven's girlfriend), Al reveals knowing Peter's identity. Later somebody claiming to be
the real Kraven states he got them both there, then leaves. Thinking that it was the Chameleon, Spidey and Alyosha head to the
facility where he is being kept and find him there. Later at the zoo, as Spidey explains Alyosha why his wife left him, the fake
Kraven shows up again and again escapes after a fight. Later they find it was the Chameleon disguised as Kraven. Al and Spidey
leave as friends. Full moon.
GHOST RIDER v3 #6 (6-22)
The same night as GR3 6 (5). This story must occur before GR5 6-FB (5-9). On a "Friday evening," Johnny arrives at the
Sturgis Rally, an event held in early August. There, he has a final showdown with Gunmetal and comes to terms with hosting
Ghost Rider. Then he hooks up with Piston. Full moon.
Saturday, August 3
X-TREME X-MEN #19 (1-18)
One day, not long after XX 18. The Beast comments that Xavier is walking again, putting this issue after X 126. Mention is
made of the "trouble" that Kitty got into at school in XU 36. Storm is in a wheelchair here, still recovering from injuries
sustained in XX 18, so this story must occur before X 131, and most likely before X 128. According to Jeph, Logan is here after
DP3 69. The reference to "Thanksgiving season" in the opening narrative must be topical - there is no reference to the holiday
in the story, so it can be interpreted as meaning the X-Men's thanksgiving for surviving the Khan invasion.
X-FACTOR v2 #2 (13-14)
One day. Tony Robb has his 72nd homer of the season on "a balmy summer night in Baltimore."
ELEKTRA v2 #11 - FB (7-10)

One night, sometime before ASM 509 and more than "a year" before SPECSM 25. Sarah and Gabriel do a job for Bruce.
Sunday, August 4
X-TREME X-MEN #19 (19-21)
The morning after XX 19 (1-18). The reunited X-Men go their separate ways, with Kitty heading back to Chicago for "classes"
(probably summer classes, in MEK 1), Neal and Heather leaving to find her brother, Rogue and Gambit deciding to take some
R&R, and Jean, Kurt, and Hank going back to Westchester. Logan stays with Ororo in New Orleans after this, and we see them
next in XXX 1 (8-13).

new TV show starring O-Force. Green trees in California.
MEKANIX #1 (1-2)
In the aftermath of Kitty's altercation in XU 36, she and her entire advanced physics tutorial class appear as targets on the Purity
website on a "Wednesday night," although given the passage of time in this story, this segment must occur on a Tuesday night.
This segment probably occurs after XX 19 (19-21).
AGENT X #1 (20-22:3)
Probably the day after AX 1 (18-19). On "job hunting, day one," a theme park owner hires Agent X to retrieve his park animals,

The day after MEK 1 (1-2). It must be shortly after XU 36, as the psychological counseling mandated by the probation she is
granted in that issue begins here. Kitty's letter of probation, shown here, refers to her discussion with the dean in XU 36 (13-15)
as being "recent" and her counseling as being "effective immediately." Classes are in session at the University of Chicago, where
it is cold at night. I propose that what we see here is a short summer quarter. Kitty and Shan Coy Manh, now a fellow University
of Chicago student, reunite. Full moon.
AGENT X #1 (22:4-30)
The day after AX 1 (20-22). Agent X retrieves the park animals and warns Four Winds to stay clear of the park, which is now
deeded to Agent X. Taskmaster refers a job to pursue the Punisher to Alex.
AGENT X #2 (1-15)
The same night as AX 1 (22-30). Agent X and Outlaw pursue the Punisher but lose him.

homeland. Kitty and her fellow students in Dr. Benes' physics tutorial run a test, but the experiment is sabotaged by anti-mutant
students so that the mutant they suspect will be exposed.
MEKANIX #2 (1-16)
The same night as MEK 1 (15-23). Kitty, Shan, and Shola contain the disaster caused by the lab sabotage and Shola is revealed
publicly as a mutant in the process. Full moon.

session in one day (continuity glitch?!), and then she pulls a double shift at the Belles of Hell. Shan and her siblings are thrown
out of their apartment after the FBI snoops around there. Anti-mutant students attempt to kill Shola, but he, Kitty, and Shan rout

about the blond girl to report to the Knox Building, out of which a drug dealer ran, ablaze. Gunz' brother Joey, a priest, talks
about quitting the priesthood with Gunz' wife, Matty, at Coney Island Amusement Park, which is open and where we see green
grass and trees. That night at his church, Joey sees the blond girl, then is saved by Gunz from an attack by drug dealers who were
using the church as a communication point. Joey and Gunz tell each other about their encounters with the blond girl. Full moon.

Mick jump on board to stop him. After making the ambulance crash, the firemen see the burning man heading to the Knox
Building, where Savannah, who appears to Montez, says MacDonald will die today, "Friday, August 12." The day and date
combination doesn't make sense, given that this story is supposed to occur a year after 9-11, which occurred on a Tuesday; so

exposure to the biotoxin even though she herself doesn't die. In other facility locations, Tony Stark checks on McDonald and
Mick is interrogated. At the precinct, Gunz mentions that he starts his detective position on Monday." Then he starts to itch and

SPIDER-MAN: QUALITY OF LIFE #1
One day. A Doctor Octopus tired of fighting Spider-Man and decided to "finish once and for all this time" is eventually captured
by Spidey. Later Peter is assigned to take pictures of protesters at the Monnano (a food chain company) building. There he spots
the Lizard who wants to kill Arliss Clifton, the C.E.O. of the company, holding him responsible for a tumor his wife has obtained
from their house's proximity to Monnano's lab in Florida. Yith shows up to kill the Lizard.
SPIDER-MAN: QUALITY OF LIFE #2
The same day as SM:QL 1. Yith, a serpent-like woman who's been hired to kill the Lizard, fails to do so inside the Monnano
buiding, Spider-Man shows up and Lizard escapes. Later Peter looks for information against Monnano in the Bugle computers.
At the hospital Billy Connors collapses apparently for the same reason his mother is sick.
WEAPON X: THE DRAFT - KANE #1
This issue takes place on a night with a waning crescent moon. Since Kane, good soldier that he is, wouldn't dawdle in his
mission (and indeed, Agent Jackson says that he ran off half-cocked without completely reading the target's profile), then one
might conclude that this issue takes place after Kane's injuries in WX:M and his subsequent rehab. We see Kane getting his
assignment at the same time as the others in WX:S (1-3), but he and Brent Jackson go on their mission in this issue as a group,
and both WX:S 1 and WX:WC 1 show us that Jackson is hanging around the compound the night of the full moon -- implying
that he and Kane aren't out on their mission that same night. So we're inclined to go by the evidence of the moons, place this
issue nearly two weeks after the other "Draft" missions, and claim that it takes place after Kane's rehab. Kane and Jackson fail to
recruit Rapture. This issue must occur before WX2 1.
Wednesday, August 14
SPIDER-MAN: QUALITY OF LIFE #3
Early morning of the day after SM:QL 2, Spider-Man breaks into Monnano's offices and learns a leak in their Florida labs has
contaminated water supplies causing Martha Connors' cancer. Yith stops Spidey from taking the information. At his hotel room
Curt Connors tells Spidey his son collapsed "last night" and that his wife will have surgery; upset, he changes to Lizard and
attacks Spider-Man; Yith shows up in the middle of their fight and begins to strangle the Lizard. Spider-Man theorizes the
chemicals causing Martha's cancer might have triggered Curt's change to the Lizard (he regained his arm and was cured by
Hammerhead using the lifeline formula in SM:L 3). Billy Connors is revealed to be 16 in this story; thus it must be five years
after the eleventh birthday seen in ASM 365.
SPIDER-MAN: QUALITY OF LIFE #4
The same day as SM:QL 3. It is shortly before PPTSS2 11-FB (1:3). Spider-Man stops Yith from killing the Lizard, who

PUNISHER v6 #31 (1-8)
The day after PUN6 30. The Punisher cuts Steve down from where he as left by his attackers. Steve is mortally wounded.
Meanwhile, Rachel and her men survey the remnants of their camp. Gerry is distraught about Steve's death; the Punisher sends
him to deal with the murderer. That evening, the Punisher again picks a fight with Rachel's men in a local bar, and leaves a
message for Rachel to face him in the main street at noon tomorrow.
SOLDIER X #9 (10-22)
The day after SX 9 (9). This segment takes place from 4:08 AM to 9:00 PM in Washington State, North Dakota, Georgia, the
Pentagon, and Dallas, Texas. Nathan Summers returns to the USA (and the "previously" box in SX 10 claims that he's been
away from the USA and traveling the globe for a "lengthy period of time" - he was last in the USA in DP3 61 at Deadpool's
funeral) and, after interrogating a general at the Pentagon, arrives at WAR's base of operations. Green grass and trees in DC.
SOLDIER X #10 (1-7)
The same night as SX 9 (10-22), starting at 9:02 PM in Dallas, Texas, where we see green grass. A bunch of WAR members
blow themselves up when Nathan shows up. Full moon.
ELEKTRA v2 #17 (4-9)
The day after ELEK2 17 (1-3). Elektra waits some more. Warm weather in Los Angeles.
X-FACTOR v2 #3
One day? I don't have this issue, but according to a recap in XF2 4, there is a raid on the home of church-bombing, mutant-hater
Kyle Nakamura, and the X-Men (including Jean Grey, Cyclops, and Beast) are present. Details?
Friday, August 23
SOLDIER X #10 (8-22)
The day after SX 10 (1-7), starting at 6:17 AM. It is "three days" after SX 9 (3-8). Nathan faces the head of WAR, Jonas Keller,
whose precognitive abilities Nathan removes. Then Keller kills himself. Gray skies and green grass in Texas.
ELEKTRA v2 #17 (10-13)
The day after ELEK2 17 (4-9). Elektra waits still more. Warm weather in Los Angeles.
DAREDEVIL v2 #38 (18)
One day during the period between Hector Ayala's arrest and trial. Matt discourages Hector's wife from divorcing him.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #1 (5)
One day. Reporters visit X-Corp in Paris, presumably because Xavier and Worthington are there, although they do not appear
the whole day, so we don't know if their information is accurate. Probably shortly before X 128-130, as these reporters make no
mention of the Chunnel incident, and the lobby (attacked by troops in X 129) is spotless. Also, by X 131, five days from now,
Archangel is back at the school.
X-FACTOR v2 #4 (2-4/5:5)
The day after XF2 3. Aaron Kearse and Catherine Gray return to Washington DC from the raid on Nakamura's home. The
publication date of the new News Time magazine is hard to read, but may be "August 25, 2002."
PUNISHER v6 #31 (9-22)
The day after PUN6 31 (1-8). Rachel and her men duly turn up at noon; the Punisher fights and kills them all. Gerry arrests
McCarthy for the murder; McCarthy makes no attempt to deny his responsibility. That evening, with Gerry's blessing, the
Punisher drives out of town, dragging McCarthy behind him.
FANTASTIC FOUR #507 - FB (2/3:9
One nice day, Reed (before disfigurement) and Sue spend quality time with their children outdoors.
Saturday, August 24
X-FACTOR v2 #4 (4/5:6-13)
In the early morning hours of the day after XF2 4 (2-4/5), Kearse and Gray go to Kendall Green's home in Reston, VA and
uncover a plot to bomb Xavier's School. There is a reference to "Sept. 11" here.
MARVEL DOUBLE SHOT #4 (11)
One day, a "week" after M/DS 4 (2-10). Tony Stark reads of Gabriel MacGregor's suicide in the newspaper.
AGENT X #8 (1-13)

One day. After getting new batteries, Peter continues tape-recording his memories of how he fell in love with Gwen Stacy, which
he has been doing "for so long."
X-FACTOR v2 #4 (14-19:3)
On the night of XF2 4 (2-13), Kearse and Gray arrive at Xavier's by car from Reston, VA. They try to stop the bomber as the X-
Men are watching the Osbournes on TV. If that program airs the same time in the MU as in the real world, and assuming they're
not watching a taped episode, then it's Sunday night. As related later, Phoenix disassembles the bomb telekinetically and knocks
out the bomber. Then, while Kearse is unconscious, Hank McCoy provides him with a more natural prosthesis.
SOLDIER X #11 (1-2)
One night during the "August" before SX 11 (15-22). "Thirty-six hours" before SX 11 (4-8), in Miami, Magda Ramirez's father
flips out when he discovers she's a mutant.
SOLDIER X #12 - FB (7-8)
The same night as SX 11 (1-2). Magda's father tries to shoot her, but her mother jumps in the way and is killed. Magda's father
SOLDIER X #11 (3)
The same night as SX 12 (7-8). "Fifty-three" minutes after the murder-suicide, Magda is arrested.
Sunday, August 25
"Several hours" after XF2 4 (14-19), the X-Men release Kearse and Gray at a press conference at which Nightcrawler is a
AGENT X #8 (14-22)
The early morning after AX 8 (1-13). Agent X severs Dante's other hand, discovers that the invisible man is Gallagher's father,
and pursues the father into a store which the invisible man blows up.
AGENT X #9
The same day as AX 8 (14-22). Hayden survives the explosion and catches the invisible man, choosing to delay his hit to hear
the story of the man's life. Impatient, Christine Gallagher and Dante (now with hooks for hands) show up. Hayden gets fed up
with the father and daughter and blows them up on a boat, getting away with their money, which he shares with Dante.
CHAMBER #1 (1-12)
One day. CHAMBER 4-FB (12:3-12:5) is referred to as having been "recent." Chamber and Cyclops rescue a mutant boy and
bring him to Xavier's. They find out about mutant murders in a recent explosion at ESU, at which "the fall session's probably
starting soon." (This explosion is probably the one referenced in HOOD 1.) Jono convinces Scott that he investigate the
murders undercover as a newly enrolled student.
Monday, August 26
v2 #4 (19:4-20)
"A whole day" after the BTS in XF2 4, Kearse awakens in the hospital and Gray reconciles with her mother. It is "two days"
before XF2 4 (21-23).
SOLDIER X #11 (4-8)
One day, starting "thirty-six hours" after SX 11 (1-3). It is "two days" before SX 11 (9). Soldier X stops would-be terrorists
from releasing a lethal nerve agent in Tokyo and convinces one of them to follow the Askani religion. Full moon.
NEW X-MEN #128
One night, most likely after XX 19. Paris is rebuilt, placing this story sometime after UX 408. Xavier and Jean are in Paris
while on their first worldwide trip for X-Corp.
NEW X-MEN #129
The same night as X 128.
NEW X-MEN #130
The same night as X 129. Darkstar dies. This issue is referred to as having occurred "yesterday" in XX 24 (1-14).
Tuesday, August 27
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (1-6)
The day after X 130. Cannonball assists with rescue and salvage efforts in the Chunnel and stays after the X-Men leave.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #1 (6-7)
One day, "a whole week" after XXX 1 (1-4). "The incident in the Channel Tunnel" is mentioned, so this segment must occur
after X 130. Conan and Wetherell get a tip to go to New Orleans. At around 1:30 PM, according to the camera in XXX 2-FB
(2-3), other reporters visit Emma Frost at Xavier's, where we see green foliage and warm weather; they are dumped in the lake.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #2-FB (2-3)
The same day as XXX 1 (5-7). The dunked reporters retreat from Xavier's amid taunts from the students there. Time-code on
the camera footage reads "13:34.27.03," which may be a reference to it being 1:34 PM.
Wednesday, August 28
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #1 (8-13)
Probably the day after XXX 1 (6-7), given that the reporters' clothes are different and Logan says that it's "morning." Conan
and Wetherell visit Ororo and Logan in New Orleans, where the two X-Men have been since XX 19. Manoli still has an
appointment with Val Cooper today, so it's unlikely that they traveled directly out to California from here. Ororo is still
wheelchair-bound, but she manages to stand and try to fly, despite the fact that she can't yet walk. Some time should pass
between this point and the point at which Logan leaves Ororo for Madripoor (before X 131) and Storm goes to Genosha ("three
days" before X 132) - obviously it would take a while for Storm to get from the point she's at here to the apparent fitness (which
we see in X 132) that makes it easier for Logan to leave her.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #2 - FB (19:3-19:4)
The same day as XXX 1 (8-13). Storm continues her interview with Conan and Wetherell, this portion seen on videotape.
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (7-14)
Cannonball is still volunteering. News reports say that no survivors have been found for over 24 hours, and a survivor was found
on page 4, so this is likely the day after XX 24 (1-6), two days after X 130.
X-FACTOR v2 #4 (21-23)
One day, "two days" after XF2 4 (19-20). An epilog for Kearse and Gray. Green grass and trees.
SOLDIER X #11 (9)
One day, "two days" after SX 11 (4-8). It is "three days" before SX 11 (10). Magda is urged to confess to the murder of her
Thursday, August 29
WOLVERINE v2 #183/2
Using the passage of time the books give us, Storm leaves for Genosha on this date, three days before X 132. Therefore, one can
assume Logan left for Madripoor on the same date. It's odd, given that Ororo is portrayed as unwell in XXX 1 (8-13) and
walking in X 132, but it is consistent with all her other appearances showing her to be healing but impatient, and constantly
overexerting herself (walking, trying to fly, etc.). In any event, we need a rationale for Logan to travel to the Madripoor area of
the world. Having him hear of the whereabouts of Lady Deathstrike, whom he'd vowed to find and kill for what she did in W2
173-176, seemed like a good impetus. He could have then traveled to Madripoor the next day or later that same day.
GET KRAVEN #1 (1-21)
One day. Ben Charles, a movie screen writer decides to buy back his script to a couple of producers after he finds they hired
somebody else to rewrite it, he promises the money by the end of the week. Kraven feels empty with his life and goes out
looking for answers, finds Spider-Man fighting Cobra and Mr. Hyde. After defeating them they talk at the zoo (Spidey says he
hates that "you always wanna chitchat here," as they did first in GK 1/2) and Spidey gives the idea to Kraven to go to
Hollywood. Timby gets her hair back to its original color (red) from the blond she was using. Full moon.
Friday, August 30
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (15-16)
The day after XX 24 (1-14). Cannonball finishes his work at the Chunnel and leaves the scene. Given the time-references
between Storm appearing in New Orleans in XXX 1 (8-13) and "three days later" in Genosha in X 132, this sequence must be
two days after XX 24 (7-14).
GET KRAVEN #1 (22-23)
One day, shortly after GK 1 (1-21). Al Kraven and Timby arrive in Los Angeles.
X-TREME X-MEN #38 - FB - FB (15:1)
One day. Storm surveys the annihilation in Genosha. This flashback must occur sometime during the three days between XXX 1
(8-13) and X 132. The narration makes it seem as though this panel occurs at the time the X-Men "help bury the dead" in X 116,
but Storm was not with the X-Men at that time. One problem here is that the costume worn by Storm in this flashback does not
match the one worn by her in X 132, but then again, the clothes she wears in XX 38-FB-FB (14:1) don't match her attire from
the same scene in GSX 1.
SPIDER-MAN'S TANGLED WEB #20 (4-22)
One day, "two weeks" after TW 20-FB (5). Jameson talks to a psychiatrist about his past, then goes to the Daily Bugle, where
"it's casual Friday."
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (12:1-12:4)
One day. Laurie Collins and her mother move to Westchester and Xavier welcomes Laurie to the Institute, perhaps at the
beginning of a new school year. Green grass and trees and light clothing.
SOLDIER X #11 (10)
One day, "three days" after SX 11 (9). I propose that it is four weeks, not "four months," before SX 11 (11). On a flight out of
Seoul, Nathan reads a paper and takes an interest in Magda's case.
PUNISHER v6 #32 - FB (14:4-16:4, 17:1-19:4)
One day. Soap tags along to see the Punisher in action, much to the Punisher's annoyance. According to Soap, later that
evening he receives a phone message from his "girlfriend," dumping him.
Saturday, August 31
NEW X-MEN #131 (1)
One morning, probably a few days after X2 130. Scott and Emma are flying in an X-jet.
NEW X-MEN #131 (2/3) ~ X-TREME X-MEN #24 (17:1-17:3)
The same morning as X 131 (1) and the morning after XX 24 (15-16), so it is four days after X 130. The X-Men attend
Darkstar's funeral in a rainy Paris.
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (17:4-18:2)
The same morning as XX 24 (17:1-17:3). After the funeral, Cannonball quits X-Corp and Xavier gives him a playbill for a gig
by Lila Cheney in Paris that night.
NEW X-MEN #131 (4-21)
The same day as X 131 (2/3). Since Archangel (who is back at Xavier's now) is still blue here, this issue must occur before UX
410. Logan has most recently been in Madripoor, according to Cyclops (and he's likely being dropped off in Afghanistan here).
It's the first time Scott and Jean have been together for "weeks " since X 127. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
X-STATIX #2 (2-13)
One day, shortly after XS 2 (1). Arnie Lundberg menaces his Minnesota town, where we see green grass and trees. While on a
mission with X-Statix, Venus Dee Milo explodes.
GET KRAVEN #2 (1-7)
One day, shortly after GK 1 (22-23), Al Kraven meets "Ned Tannengarden," the "boss" at National Studios, who seems glad to
have Al work for him. Later, Ben Charles' girlfriend leaves him for buying back his script (there's a "Garage Sale This
Saturday" sign outside of his house, so it may be Saturday night as the house is pretty much empty and his girlfriend seems to be
taking the rest of her stuff).
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (18:3-19)
The same night as XX 24 (17-18). Cannonball reconnects with Lila Cheney and they teleport off Earth for some R&R. It is
"months" before XX 24 (20-21).
PUNISHER v6 #32
The day after PUN6 32-FB (17-19). It may not be "a couple of years" after "nine-eleven," but rather the year after. In Kevin's
bar, Soap talks about his life to a bizarre transvestite. He states that he was with his girlfriend for "two years," but it cannot be
that long since PUN6 1. He also states that he was assigned to the Punisher task force "in the spring of two thousand;" while the
year must be topical, the season may not be.
Sunday, September 1
MEKANIX #6 - FB
The morning after MEK 6 (1-20).
MEKANIX #6 (21-23)
The same day as MEK 6-FB.
NEW X-MEN #132
Probably the day after X 131. A group of X-Men are on their way from the Paris funeral of Darkstar to India when the stop in
Genosha, where Storm has been for "three days" (thus missing the funeral), so it is more than three days since XXX 1 (8-13).
Storm appears to have recovered, or so she may deceive herself into believing - and with Logan having left her for an important
reason (Vatican or Madripoor), she has decided to go off to Genosha, A comment by Sabra about this being the worst
"weekend" of her life suggests that X 131 occurs on Saturday and this issue on a Sunday. Polaris returns. According to the
introductory notes in X 133, it is "one year" after the destruction of Genosha in X 115, but that length of time may be too long -
six months may be more appropriate; this is corroborated by the narration in UX 424, which occurs "several months" after X
GET KRAVEN #2 (8-20)
One day. Al Kraven talks to Namor in a Malibu beach and later rents Scott Baio's house. Ben Charles tries to hang himself but
the ceiling falls down. Swimming and sunbathing weather in Malibu.
X-STATIX #2 (14-22)
The night of the day after XS 2 (2-13). Reference is made to Edie not being "dead four months," but the reference may be to four
weeks since XFO 128. Guy and Venus have an unpleasant dinner in a restaurant, then Sharon Ginsburg serves X-Statix a court
order forbidding Venus from being on the team. O-Force prepares to battle Arnie Lundberg.
X-STATIX #3 (1-7)
The same night as XS 2. Sharon threatens to take X-Statix to court over Venus, Anarchist and Dead Girl leave to go on tour, and
Vivisector has troubles.
Monday, September 2: Labor Day

The day after XS 3 (1-7). Phat spends time at home, where we see green grass and trees and warm, outdoor grilling weather.
Orphan tries to talk O-Force out of their mission against Arnie Lundberg, who blows up his school, liberating the kids from the
classroom. This may be the first day of school for a new year in Arnie's Minnesota town, where we see green grass and trees.
Orphan then checks out what must be the first performance of the Tike Alicar and Dead Girl Road Show.
GET KRAVEN #2 (21-23)
Probably the day after GK 2 (8-20), since that segment presents a California summer night (it's already dark) and given the time
zone difference they wouldn't be serving dinner past midnight in a prison in New York. Chameleon escapes the facility where
he's staying after killing two guards that brought him "dinner."
ELEKTRA v2 #18
One day. The people Elektra killed in ELEK2 14 are found in a somewhat decomposed state. Elektra and Drake spend the day
cleaning and fixing up a playground in LA. Sean thought dropping this on Labor Day seemed appropriate.
NEW X-MEN #133
Probably the day after X 132, as the X-Men arrive in India via commercial aircraft. Wolverine travels separately from
Afghanistan to meet them there. Both Logan and Sunfire appear here, and it is likely this is before their encounter in XU 39/2. I
have Xavier here before XS 4 (19-22). Jean is seen flying to Mumbai with Professor Xavier when they prevent the hijacking of
their plane. Jean saves Xavier from an assassination attempt by Lilandra. Charles leaves to meet the Shi'ar and Jean inspects the
X-Corporation Mumbai. There she meets and apparently takes Dust under her protection, but Dust may have remained at X-
Corp Mumbai for a time after this. Full moon.

GET KRAVEN #3
Probably the day after GK 2 (21-23). The Rothsteins Brothers decide to get rid of Al Kraven, Timby gets her first audition and

One day. Doc Ock is captured by an Mr. Carlyle, an Ock wannabe. Peter tries to reach Mary Jane to apologize to no avail. Dr.
Octopus is shown with grey hair here for the first time, which probably means he had it dyed prior to this issue.

One day. It is "the first day of classes" at the University of Wisconsin, which typically occurs right after Labor Day. Nahrees has
an altercation with a bus while Alaris is conned into spending a wad of money, and both incidents put the Inhumans into

Tannengarden" mentions that "in the last two days," Al has had a fight with the Chameleon and "last night" with more costumed
freaks (by "last night" he must be referring to early morning the same day before Kraven went to sleep). Ben Charles decides to

GET KRAVEN #5 (13-22)
One day, probably a few days after GK 5 (1-12). Al Kraven gets beat up by Stitch Williams and the Chameleon, the Rothsteins
brothers abuse Timby and Nickel gets shot, when Al recovers he gives a number to the Vulture to call Spider-Man and leaves for
SENTINEL #1 (4-22)
The day after SENT 1 (1-3). At school, sophomore Juston is picked on by senior bullies and meets a girl named Jessie. That
night he discovers a Sentinel in the junkyard. Full moon.

week" of INH4 6 (1-5). Full moon.
Tuesday, September 10
GET KRAVEN #6 (1-18)
Late the same night as GK 5 (13-22) (which, given the 3 hours Time Zone difference could be early morning of the next day in
New York). Kraven cuts the Rothstein brothers' tongues, and helped by the Vulture beats up Stitch Williams, Gerbil and Doctor
Script, the Vulture cuts the Rothstein brothers' intimate parts. Then Spider-Man shows up and they fight a cyborg who reveals
"Ned Tannengarden" is also the late Kraven's son and Al's brother, and is behind all the attacks to Al. Alyosha goes to see
"Ned" who gets killed accidentally by a mad Chameleon for nobody believing he is the real Kraven. Spider-Man excuses himself
for taking so long, he was busy with his "ex, a guy in a lobster suit and Doc Ock -- well, actually two of them" (in ASM2 44-45).
MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS v2 #1/3
Perhaps the early morning after ASM2 45. Spidey returns to what may be an L.A. hotel room in his battered classic costume, thinking that it "feels like Doc Ock actually grew extra arms for that fight." Spidey falls asleep and has what appears to be a dream about a gathering of the Galactic Alliance of Spider-Men.
X-STATIX #5 (18-22)
One day, probably a few days after XS 5 (14-17), as we see Arnie's funeral here. Orphan and Lacuna argue on the beach and
Orphan quits X-Statix. Green trees in California.
INHUMANS v4 #7 (1-13)
One day. It is "days" before INH4 7 (14-15). San creates a sculpture that he claims will last "18 days," so it may be that long
before INH4 7 (17-21). As a rush for the sorority she wants to join, Stacey asks San out on a date. "That night," they go to a
restaurant and Stacey gets to know San. We see green trees and leaves blowing in Madison, Wisconsin. Full moon.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #62 (1-9)
One day, shortly after FF3 61. Reed finally thinks to run tests on Valeria while Franklin feels ignored. Johnny gets his feet wet
with the financial operations of FF, Inc (it doesn't appear to be his first day on the job). We see jacket weather and green
vegetation in New York. There is no apparent sign of Asgard over Manhattan; I've placed this segment before T2 46.
AGENT X #10 (8-21)
The day after AX 10 (1-7). Agency X's hit wasn't successful, and Lacoco forces Hayden to finish the hit by kidnapping Sandi.
Hayden discovers that his target is the indestructible Fight Man, and he and Fight Man spend the day trying to kill the retired
hero. Then a trio of robots attacks. Green grass and trees and warm weather. Full moon.
AGENT X #11
The same night as AX 10 (8-21). After defeating the robots, Agent X and Fight Man take on a horde of Delta City villains. Full
Wednesday, September 11
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #62 (10-21)
The day after FF3 62 (1-9). Modulus becomes sentient.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #63
The same day as FF3 62 (10-21). Johnny signs a contract for the licensed use of unstable molecules. The FF battle Modulus.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #64
The same day as FF3 63. The FF defeat Modulus. It appears that Valeria is sitting up on her own in one panel, which means
she's probably at least six months old at this point.
SHE-HULK v3 #6 - FB (17:4)
One day. This flashback must occur after S-H4 14-FB (13:4-13:5). The Awesome Android delivers coffee to coworkers at
Thursday, September 12

One day. Rahne gets into a barroom brawl.
PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL v2 #5 - FB (2)

Friday, September 13
INHUMANS v4 #7 (14-15)
One day, "days" after INH4 7 (1-13). Instead of attending a sorority function, Stacey goes miniature golfing with San. Green
grass and trees in Wisconsin.

One day. On "September 13th," S-3 is in her last day of post-op following the facial surgery.

deadly chain reaction ensues when Johnny's wallet of unstable molecules is tampered with. Green trees.

The same day as FF3 65. With coaching from Johnny, Sue Storm arrests the chain reaction. It is "one week" before FF3 66 (20-
21). Green grass and trees.
Saturday, September 14
GET KRAVEN #6 (19)
One day, probably a few days after GK 6 (1-18), enough time for the Rothstein brothers to be out of the hospital and back in
business now as the "Rothstein sisters," Timby goes to see them to get one last revenge. It is "six months" before GK 6 (20-23).
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #515 - FB (9:5)
One day. Charlie Wiederman's experiments with his military skinsuit results in the deaths of canine subjects.
Sunday, September 15
INHUMANS v4 #8 (1-3)

killed them in INH4 6.

One night. Peter goes to bed reflecting about "this week's" events in California.
Monday, September 16

in "the past year." Doctor Strange visits Peter in his sleep to talk about their last encounter in ASM2 42 and to warn him of the
consequences. Then Peter wakes up in the middle of the night and reads about the spider wasp.

One night, a "few nights" before W:N 1. Mariko appears to Logan in a dream.
Tuesday, September 17

One day. San shows Stacey how he makes art.
Wednesday, September 18
DEADLINE #2 - FB
One day, "about three months" before DL 2 and "three months" before DL 3. The Tinkerer saves Judge Hart.
SENTINEL #2 (1-20)
One day. Juston's father takes his brother on an overnight trip to Chicago, but Juston is left behind because he's "missed too
much school from these Chicago trips already" - an indication that at least a few weeks of the school year have passed. Juston
runs afoul of bullies in school and Jessie ends up driving him home. After Jessie leaves, the Sentinel in his barn activates and
Juston resolves to get the robot fully functional. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
Thursday, September 19
SENTINEL #2 (21)
The morning after SENT 2 (1-20). Juston's father and brother return from Chicago and drive him to school.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #66 (20-21)

WOLVERINE: NETSUKE #2
The same day as W:N 1. Logan spends what feels like "months" in the spiritual realm, although only "seconds" pass in real time.
WOLVERINE: NETSUKE #3
The same day as W:N 2. Logan continues his journey in the spiritual realm. The seasonal references do not apply to real time.
WOLVERINE: NETSUKE #4
The same day as W:N 3. Wolverine acquires a set of four carved figurines. This series must be placed before Wolverine is
ordered out of Japan in XU 39/2.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #46 (8:4-20:2)
One day. Shathra appears from Astral Plane and attacks a bum. Later, "three days" after Peter's dream in ASM2 46 (2-8),
Spider-Man meets and battles Shathra. Spidey gets away. The moon shown partially covered in this issue must be a waxing
Friday, September 20
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #46 (20:3-22)
The day after ASM2 46 (8-20). Spidey stays up waiting in costume "for hours" until it's time to go to school. Shathra decides
on a new kind of play and implements her change in strategy to harm Spider-Man by telling lies about him to a newspaper
reporter. School is back in session after the break during which Peter was in California.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #47
The same school day as ASM2 46 (20-22), during a month preceding a month in which school is held (a field trip is being
planned for "next month"). Someone says "see you Monday." Shathra's lies hit the media (Fantastic Four, MJ, Aunt May and
JJJ hear the news) and Spidey battles her again, then escapes and collapses inside a museum. It's already 10:55 PM on the news
coverage of Spidey's fight with Shathra. There's a banner saying "December is Arachna-Mania Month!" at the museum in
which Spidey finds himself.
INHUMANS v4 #7 (16:2)
One night. Stacey and friends are at a nightclub. Stacy has met San within the last "two weeks."
Saturday, September 21
CREW #5 - FB (19:4-20)
On a "Saturday morning," Josiah X gets a package containing his father's Captain America costume. This flashback, with its
topical year of "2002," presumably occurs the year before CREW 5, which was published in 2003. Josiah is wearing a short-
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #48
Probably the day after ASM2 47, Ezekiel rescues Spider-Man from the museum (where kids are watching with their teacher, so
it's probably morning), takes him to Ghana in a private jet; after telling him about Kwaku Anansi takes him to the ruins of the
spider and leaves him to battle Shathra who's followed them all the way. Ezekiel sends spiders to attack and defeat Shathra.
Then MJ, who's listening the news still talking about Shathra's lies (on a dark LA morning, probably because of the announced
coming storm), calls for a cab to the airport, her departure is scheduled for 11:45 AM (2:45 PM in New York). The time
difference between New York and Ghana is 5 hours, Ghana's time being ahead, so it's probably around 6 to 7 PM in Ghana at
the time Spidey battles Shathra.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #49 (1-8)
Right after his battle with Shathra in ASM2 48, Ezekiel tries to explain Peter about the mystic nature of his spider powers and
warns him about a third danger coming, then Peter heads to the airport in Ghana as MJ's plane departs to New York.
At the airport Peter changes his flight to New York for one to LA "leaving in two hours." Later MJ gets to Peter's apartment in
NY and meets Caryn (who is probably visiting a friend since she doesn't live at the same building than Peter s but at the one
across the street), as Peter flies to LA. It is "quite a long time" before ASM2 55 (7-22).
INHUMANS v4 #7 (16:3-16:4)
One day. Stacey daydreams about San and they both go to a movie.
X-MEN UNLIMITED #39/2
One day. Storm and Logan rendezvous in Japan (where we see green grass and trees), but are ordered out by Sunfire, who likely
appears here after X 133, given that he and Logan don't seem to be at odds with each other then. Sunfire, citing new laws
against mutants, gives them 24 hours to leave. If Logan observes this ban, then this story occurs after XU 50. The costume
Storm wears here is never seen again. She can fly and maneuver quite well, but just like in X 132, she seems to need her cape to
catch the winds.
Sunday, September 22
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #49 (9-17)
After flying all night from Ghana, Peter's flight gets to LA probably the "morning" after ASM2 49 (1-8). At M.J.'s apartment
they refuse to confirm if she lives there. He calls her phone and finds M.J. is out for a "few days" to see someone special. He
calls his own apartment then and his phone hasn't been reconnected after being late with a payment. Peter then uses the rear
window to get inside M.J.'s apartment. After probably waiting for hours until dark at each other's apartments, Peter and Mary
Jane decide to go back to their respective homes.
INHUMANS v4 #7 (16:5)
One day. San and Stacey are on a boat on a lake.
SENTINEL #3 (1-9)
One day. After working on the Sentinel for "four days" after SENT 2 (1-20), Juston discovers that his robot is dangerous. His
dad says that he hasn't seen Alex or Matt "in a couple weeks."
Monday, September 23: Autumnal Equinox
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #49 (18-22)
The early morning after ASM2 49 (9-17). M.J.'s flight back to LA makes a stop in Denver and Peter's flight lands there too for
precaution after a thunder grazes the plane. At the Denver airport Peter finds M.J. and they decide to miss their flights so they
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #50
The same early morning as ASM2 49 (18-22). At the Denver airport, Spider-Man and Captain America protect Dr. Doom from a
violent group of anti-Doom activists. Doom must appear here before T2 58. Peter and M.J. reconcile. Presumably after this,
M.J. returns to California for a couple of months to wrap up some loose ends in her life there before go back to New York.
Green grass and trees in Colorado.
SENTINEL #3 (10-21)
The day after SENT 3 (1-9). At school, Juston discovers that his robot is a Sentinel. He asks Jessie to a dance scheduled for
"Friday night," but she declines. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
UNCANNY X-MEN #410
One school day. Xavier and Logan are here, back from their travels. Chamber has gone off to college, so this occurs between
CHAMBER 1 and 4. After being picked on by his schoolmates and considering a drastic solution with a gun, Sammy Pare is
invited by Xavier to his school. In response to a distress signal, a team of X-Men head to Cassidy Keep, only to crash at the site.
Green grass and trees and jackets in Vancouver.
UNCANNY X-MEN #411
The same night as UX 410. It is a "year" after XF 149. The downed X-Men mistakenly see Juggernaut as the threat and fight
him before he informs them that it was he who contacted them for help. Then the lot of them are attacked and captured by a
mutated Black Tom Cassidy. Havok is staying at a convalescent home in upstate New York, where we see green grass and trees;
his nurse Annie Ghazikhanian, realizes who he is from a newspaper article and photo and contacts Xavier's, where Scott and
Jean (back from her trip) receive the message.
UNCANNY X-MEN #412 (1-3)
The same night as UX 411. The X-Men at Cassidy Keep are trussed up by Black Tom.
SENTINEL #4 (1)
The same night as SENT 3 (10-21). The bullies resolve to get back at Juston.
Tuesday, September 24
UNCANNY X-MEN #412 (4-24)
The morning after UX 412 (1-3). It is "quite some time" before X 161. Scott picks up Alex at the convalescent home and Annie
requests to accompany them back to Xavier's so she can continue to be Alex's nurse. The X-Men defeat the mutated Black Tom;
in the process, Sammy saves Juggernaut's life and Warren breaks an arm and a leg and loses his blue skin, placing this story after
X 131. On the way back to Westchester, Xavier offers Juggernaut a home at the school and Cain accepts. Green grass and trees
in upstate New York.
UNCANNY X-MEN #413
The same day as UX 412 (4-24). It is "a few weeks" before UX 417. The reference to calling Lorna would place this story after
X 132. Annie arrives at Xavier's with son Carter and gets pulled into being a triage nurse for the wounded X-Men returning
from Cassidy Keep. Xavier invites her to join his staff. Husk, now working and living at the school, gets into an argument with
Stacy. Juggernaut is probably here before he gets an "X" tattoo in DL 1. Green grass and trees and warm weather at Xavier's,
where it is a school day.
SENTINEL #4 (2-6)
The day after SENT 4 (1). Justin works on the Sentinel on a school day.
Wednesday, September 25
SOLDIER X #11 (11)
One day. I propose that it is four weeks, not "four months," after SX 11 (10). I propose that it is six weeks, "six months," before
SX 11 (12-13). Nathan is in a bar in Denver watching TV news coverage of the Magda Ramirez case.
INHUMANS v4 #7 (16:6)
One day. Stacey examines the art San made for her.
WOLVERINE v3 #26 - FB
One day, "eighteen months" before W3 20 (15-20) and W3 26 (8-10). Tomi Shishido seeks an audience with the Hand and kills
himself so that he may be resurrected and serve them as the Gorgon. We see autumn leaves in Japan.
Thursday, September 26
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (14:3)
One day. Angel walks out on Laurie, the school's attempt at pairing them up as roommates having failed.
DAREDEVIL: THE TARGET #1
One night, "over a year" after 9-11. Rubble is still present at the Twin Towers site. Matt notes that "it's been three years" since
DD2 5, but this can't be right, unless he means three years inclusive; my calculations indicate that it's less than two years after
DD2 5. Matt visits Karen's grave on a special night he observes each year; this may not be the anniversary of Karen's death -
perhaps it's her birthday. Since the Owl is not a crime lord here, this story must occur before DD2 41. Bullseye appears here in
his new non-costume for the first time, before DD2 49. Daredevil beats up on the Owl, who is robbing a bank. Bullseye takes a
job from some Middle Eastern terrorists. Green grass and trees.
Friday, September 27
B-SIDES #1 (1-14)
One school day, a "couple of months" after BS 1/2. Fateball, Mize, and Jughandle get invitations to form a new superhero team.
We see football season in high school and fall colors in New Jersey.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #1 (14-23)
One day, perhaps a month after XXX 1 (8-13), during which time reporters have been gathering intel on the X-Men. The
executive producer of "Spotlight" is now working on a rough cut of the expose. Conan and Manoli interview Bishop and Sage in
Valle Soleada (outside Los Angeles), a meeting set up by Storm.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #2 (1-18)
Probably the evening of XXX 1 (14-23). Conan and Wetherell are still in Valle Soleada, talking to the same cop they rescued in
XXX 1. By huge coincidence, they run into Gambit and Rogue in the same town as Bishop and Sage. Gambit and Rogue have
been "on the road for weeks" following XX 19. It is "about a week" before XXX 2 (19-22).
SENTINEL #4 (7-21)
The Friday after SENT 4 (2-6). Juston completes work on the Sentinel and takes it for a test drive. The bullies beat on Juston's
friend Alex to send a message to Juston. Crescent moon.
SENTINEL #5 (1-4)
The same night as SENT 4. Juston visits Alex, who says that his wounds are a warning from the bullies. Juston "can't wait until
Monday," when Jessie is back from visiting her boyfriend in Madison. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
AGENT X #12 (1-6)
One night. Wannabe super-villain Mr. Murder destroys Agent X's amusement park office, mutilates Agent X and dumps him in
the East River to remove potential competition for an open contract. Full moon.
Saturday, September 28
AGENT X #12 (7-17)
The day after AX 12 (1-6). It is "several days" before AX 12 (18-22). Agent X kills Mr. Murder and a TV producer with a
contract on his head. It is "several days" before AX 12 (18-22). We see green trees and lovely weather, and an angler plans to
spend the day with his son, suggesting that it's a school vacation or a weekend day. A "county fair's comin' up."
INHUMANS v4 #7 (17-21)
One day. It may be "18 days" after INH4 7 (1-13), as the art that San made appears to break down, mirroring San's rejection of
Stacey. A sorority induction party occurs. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
B-SIDES #1 (15-22)
The night of the day after BS 1 (1-14). Charley Huckle meets with Fateball, Mize, and Jughandle and convinces them to form
the B-Sides. Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, and the Thing make an appearance.
Sunday, September 29
X-MEN UNLIMITED #42
One night with a full moon. Krystal Van Heiden has captured Emma Frost to use her mutated DNA to create a diamond-like
environment at her Crystal Palace in Antarctica. Emma defeats her.
PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN v2 #50 (2-9)
A rainy Sunday night. Spider-Man nabs bad guys, tagging them with a note that says: "Happy Thanksgiving - Enjoy the
turkeys." Then Spidey returns to his apartment to find Aunt May there, wanting to know more about Peter's life as Spidey. May
notes that she's "had a lot to think about these last few weeks. About you being Spider-Man, that is." This implies that it is a few
weeks after ASM2 35 (16-23), but this can't be right; more likely, May's been thinking more about Peter's alter-ego since the
encounter with Doc Ock a few weeks back in ASM2 45. May also notes that it's forty degrees. The reference to Thanksgiving
must be purely humor about the bad guys being turkeys, not an actual reference to the time of year.
Monday, September 30
PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN v2 #50 (10-13)
The day after PPSM2 50 (2-9). On a Monday, Peter teaches school, then fights more bad guys as Spider-Man that night ruining
SENTINEL #5 (5-15)
The "Monday" after SENT 5 (1-4). The bullies spread a rumor in school that causes Jessie to terminate her friendship with
Juston. Then they beat him up and leave him crying. Juston gives the Sentinel a mission to make the bullies pay. Green grass
and trees in Wisconsin.
INHUMANS v4 #8 (1-4)
One day. The Inhuman students try to relate to a group of international students. A representative of Terry Haller tries to buy
Tonaja's genetic secrets to no avail. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
INHUMANS v4 #8 - FB
One day. Cap, Iron Man, and Thor save hundreds of people from a tunnel collapse, as reported in a newspaper. It's hard to tell
because he's in silhouette, but Thor appears to be classic costume; I've placed Thor here before T2 46, the storyline that leads to
Asgard-over-Manhattan. Thor's last appearance with the Avengers before now would be M/DS 2/2, which should occur long
enough before now for Thor's hair to grow back (which wouldn't be long at all).
Tuesday, October 1
PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN v2 #50 (14-21)
The day after PPSM2 50 (10-13), Tuesday, Peter talks more with Aunt May in the park (May wears a coat), where we see green
grass and blowing leaves. That night, Spidey busts more bad guys, Hammerhead among them, in the middle of an illicit vodka
SENTINEL #5 (16-21)
The day after SENT 5 (5-15). The Sentinel arrives at Juston's high school to carry out its mission. We see short sleeves and
jackets. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
SENTINEL #6 (1-12)
The same day as SENT 5 (16-21). It is "nearly one month" before SENT 7. The Sentinel attacks the school, but Juston arrives
and crashes a jeep into the robot, sending it away. Juston is praised as a hero. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
UNCANNY X-MEN #414
One day, "months" after X 113. Stacy X refers to UX 412 as having occurred "the other day," but she's always practiced lazy
language - clues in UX 415 tell us it's been more than a week since UX 413. Archangel is still in a cast. Northstar accepts a
teaching position at Xavier's, but is injured in an explosion that puts him in the infirmary. If we wish to use XS 6-8 as the reason
for Xavier's absence in UX 415, then we have to allow enough time between UX 414 and 415 for XS 6-8 to occur. Green grass
and trees in Ontario.
INHUMANS v4 #8 (5-21)
The day after INH4 8 (4) and INH4 8-FB. There is TV news coverage of a "school attacked by alien robot," which probably
refers to SENT 6 (1-12), an event that may occur earlier this day. Alaris tries out for the UW Badgers football team but instead is
given the job of mascot. Green grass and trees in Wisconsin.
Wednesday, October 2
PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN v2 #50 (22-27)
The day after PPSM2 50 (14-21). On a Wednesday (Peter says he has school tomorrow and that he's out early on Friday for
career day), Peter talks more with May as they check Peter's photo album. Later he and busts more bad guys as Spider-Man.
May's discussion with Peter about Doc Ock does not include any mention of the events of ASM2 43-45, but May bringing up the
knowledge of both Peter's and Doc Ock's identities for the first time in ASM2 45 puts that issue before this one. Green grass
SENTINEL #6 (13-21)
The day after SENT 6 (1-12). It is a "month" before SENT 11. The evening news reports on the Sentinel attack of the day
before, perhaps more of the news coverage we see in INH6 8 (5-21). Juston is hailed as a hero, but he feels like a phony. The
Sentinel discovers its mutant hunting protocols.
X-STATIX #6 (1-8)
One day. Orphan has been missing for a while, since XS 5 (18-22). Professor X helps Venus Dee Milo with her powers while
the rest of the team appear on Lacuna's show. It is long enough before XS 6 (9-15) for profits at X-Statix cafes to be tallied as
having declined two percent.
Thursday, October 3
AGENT X #12 (18-22)
One day, "several days and much healing" after AX 12 (7-17). It is at least "three days" before AX 13 (5-21). Agent X kills a
man who refuses to pay the bounty he's earned. Alex decides to close his agency to protect Sandi.
THOR v2 #46
A school day. Because this issue leads into the Asgard-over-Manhattan storyline, it is most likely that this issue occurs after
Thor's appearance in A3 61, especially given his teleportation in that issue, and given the fact that Tarene starts to take over for
Thor as earth's defender here. It is likely that Thor appears in both M/DS 2/2 and INH4 (5-21) before now, as he has his classic
costume in those appearances. Even though we see green grass and warm weather in New York, someone says that it's
"February." I'll go with the green and warmth.
THOR v2 #47
The same day as T2 46. Green grass and short-sleeve weather in New York.
THOR v2 #48
The same day as T2 47.
THOR v2 #49
The same day as T2 48.
THOR v2 #50
The same day as T2 49.
THOR v2 #50/2
The same day as T2 50.
THOR v2 #51
The same day as T2 50/2. Spidey checks in with Thor to find out what s going on when Asgard appears over Manhattan. It is "a
hundred days" before T2 53. From here on out, Asgard floats over Manhattan, so placement of stories set in Manhattan around
this time must consider the presence or absence of Asgard.
Friday, October 4
AGENT X #14 - FB (1-2)
One day. Outlaw attends her father's funeral in Harlington, Texas. Subsequently, she drives out of Texas.
PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN v2 #50 (28-35)
One day. This segment probably occurs before SM:BO 3-FB (16-18). On Friday , Peter meets with Aunt May (both wearing
coats) in the park (where we see autumn colors and blowing leaves) and reveals to her Norman Osborn is the Green Goblin, she
notes that if Peter still feels responsible for uncle Ben s death, he won't come back to life as hard as Peter tries to fix things being
Spider-Man. That night, Spidey fights the Rhino and the Uber-Machine to later find out that Hammerhead has set him up to
clean up the guys that are giving trouble to Hammerhead's organization.
DAREDEVIL v2 #38 (19-22)
One day. We see jury selection for Hector Ayala's trial, probably on the last weekday before the "Monday" the trial starts - thus
a Friday. It may have taken several weeks for Ayala's case to go to trial. The events of DD2 20-25 are referred to as having
occurred "last year." Short-sleeve weather. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN: X-POSE #2 (19-22)
One evening,"about a week" after XXX 2 (1-18). Warren has white skin and no casts, so this segment must occur after UX 414.
It may occur shortly before Iceman discovers that Warren is out of his casts in UX 415. Warren also sports cropped hair and a
goatee, which he would had to have grown in the few days since UX 414. The snow falling in Manhattan starts when Ororo
confronts Warren, so it may be a subconscious manifestation of her mood. Warren gives her a speech about the X-Men needing
to portray a united front, with which Ororo disagrees. Storm appears recovered here, but I theorize that she collapses right after
this scene, and Logan realizes that they were kidding themselves into believing she was okay; he returns her to New Orleans for
more rehabilitation. The TV Guide on page 1 is for "June," but a newspaper reads "Friday, October" something.
Saturday, October 5
PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN v2 #50 (36-38)
The early morning after PPSM2 50 (28-35). Peter has returned home and falls asleep watching TV, then heads back out at 1:34
in the morning to deal with a gelatinous blob reported on the news. This event is noted as having occurred "just last month" in
PPTSS2 3 (1-5).
One day, shortly after B-S 1. Charley Huckle get the B-Sides a headquarters and bowling shirts and has them go after Doctor
Dark. The Fantastic Four show up. Green grass and trees in New Jersey.
The same day as BS 2. The B-Sides and the Fantastic Four deal with Skrulls in New Jersey, where we see green grass and trees.
X-STATIX #6 (9-15)
One day, long enough after the Lacuna Good Guy/Bad Guy broadcast in XS 6 (1-8) for it to be noted that takings at X-Statix
cafes have declined two percent. Spike Freeman notes that X-Statix will have to kill the missing Orphan. Meanwhile, Professor
X deals with the theft of some costumes and then the thief, appearing as Bad Guy, trashes Lacuna's studio.
One day. Kat Farrell interviews Johnny Storm after he sets fire to Union Square Park, then she gets "a week" to prove herself for
a crime desk job; this is an indication that DL 4 (22-23) probably occurs a week after this issue. The content of a rumor web site,
"Captain America: Who's Under the Mask Now?," suggests that Cap has resurfaced publicly after his presumed "death," which
he would have done in the Kang War, and before the revelation of Cap's ID in CA4 3. Juggernaut appears here getting an "X"
tattoo, so this story likely occurs after UX 413. A reference is made to it being "six months" since "June," but this reference is
inconsistent with the October newspaper date shown in DL 4. Coat weather.
UNCANNY X-MEN #415
One day, "weeks" after UX 413, although this reference is inconsistent with the one in UX 414 that UX 412 was "the other day,"
given that UX 414 is referred to here as having occurred "the other day." It is "a few days" before UX 416. Archangel is out of
his casts, which surprises Iceman as it's "too soon" for Warren to be healed. Warren's goatee does not appear here; he may have
shaved it since XXX 2 (19-22). Northstar is in the infirmary. Wolverine is not here, perhaps because he's tending to Storm in
New Orleans. Green grass and trees at Westchester. Full moon.
AGENT X #13 (1-4)
One night. Aboard the cargo vessel Golfinho, "three hundred nautical miles from the eastern seaboard," the Black Swan and an
uncommunicative hooded man (obviously Deadpool) are attacked by thugs, but the Swan easily sees them off.
Sunday, October 6
X-STATIX #6 (16-22)
The day after XS 6 (9-15). X-Statix battle Bad Guy.
X-STATIX #7 (1-8)
The same day as XS 6 (16-22). Bad Guy retreats from the battle and Venus publicly discloses being a virgin. Orphan comes to
Professor X for a new suit.
AGENT X #13 (5-21)
The day after AX 13 (1-4). It is at least "three days" after AX 12 (18-22). At his amusement park, Agent X has just fended off
an attack from a group of inexperienced mercenaries hired by the mob. The Taskmaster comes by to tell Agent X that Sandi has
got them a job which they need to take. "Soon," Agent X and the Taskmaster meet up with Higashi and Sandi. Higashi is going
to a meeting of the Four Winds factions; by hiring Agency X as his bodyguards he hopes to send the message that Agency X are
no longer enemies of the Four Winds. All four get into a limousine and drive off to the dinner. Two unnamed assassins attack
and try to kill Higashi on behalf of the Northern Wind. Agent X and the Taskmaster defeat the assassins. They make it to the
party, where Higashi heads off to deal with the Northern Wind leaders. Agent X talks to Sandi about the time they slept together
(in AX 10) and is pleasantly surprised to find that she's quite happy about it. After the party, Agent X, Taskmaster and Sandi
return to Sandi's apartment. The Black Swan and Deadpool are waiting for them, much to everyone's surprise, since the Agency
X characters all assumed that Agent X was Deadpool. On impulse, Agent X draws his gun and shoots Deadpool in the head.
The day after DL 1. It is "about three months" after DL 2-FB. Kat continues to investigate a story about a super-villain killer.
Batroc has been struck by an arrow fired by Hawkeye, so this story must occur after TB 75 (24-37). Since Mr. Fear is not in
prison here, this story must occur before SM:BO 3-FB (16-18). The battle between Spidey and Doc Ock on the Flatiron
Building is not the one shown in PPSM2 41 - the setting and choreography don't match. So what's the scoop? Coat weather
and rain. DEADLINE #3
The same night as DL 2. It is "three months" after DL 2-FB. Judge Hart takes Kat to Zeitgeist, a ghost realm where they are
forced to watch people's sudden deaths. We see green shrubs in New York and a waxing crescent moon.
DEADLINE #4 (1-4)
The same night as DL 3.
Monday, October 7
AGENT X #14 (3-9)
The early morning after AX 13 (5-21). Sandi and the Taskmaster leave Deadpool to heal. The Black Swan delivers a lengthy
expository spiel; the gist is that in the explosion in the final issue of DP3, the personalities of Deadpool, the Swan and Nijo (the
Swan's henchmen) got intermingled, and Deadpool's healing powers were also spread among the three of them. Agent X is a
bunch of stray personality traits from the Swan and Deadpool, reanimating the corpse of Nijo. Deadpool, meanwhile, has been
left as a virtual blank. The Swan wants to use his powers to put everyone's minds back to normal.
DAREDEVIL v2 #39 (1-12)
The "Monday" after DD2 38 (19-22). It is "a few days" before DD2 40. The trial of Hector Ayala begins, so this segment occurs
before ALIAS 16 (13-22).
X-STATIX #7 (9-22)
The day after XS 7 (1-8). Bad Guy injures Sharon Ginsberg then faces X-Statix. Green grass and trees.
X-STATIX #8 (1-6)
The same day as XS 7 (9-22). Bad Guy appears as Venus' cousin Jamal and Professor X helps Venus and Orphan make sense of
AGENT X #14 (10-14)
The same night as AX 14 (3-9). The Swan, Sandi, Taskmaster, Agent X and Deadpool head to the amusement park so that the
Swan can restore everyone's minds undisturbed. Meanwhile, Outlaw returns to New York and arrives at Sandi's apartment,
where she finds fairly obvious evidence that Sandi has been sleeping with Alex. We see green trees and a full moon.
NYX #1 (5-7)
One night. Kiden Nixon and her friend Kara take drugs and dance in an unspecified nightclub.
Tuesday, October 8
AGENT X #14 (15-21)
The early morning after AX 14 (10-14). At the amusement park, the Black Swan does indeed restore everyone's minds, but one
his own personality is restored, he immediately betrays the others and sets about trying to kill anyone. Agent X is on the back
foot when Deadpool pops up, now restored to...well, to his usual level of sanity. Deadpool attacks the Black Swan.
AGENT X #15
The same early morning as AX 4 (15-21). Agent X, Sandi, Taskmaster and Deadpool join forces against the Black Swan, joined
by Outlaw and a bunch of henchmen sent as a favour by Higashi. The Swan is killed. As he dies, the X scars disappear from
Agent X's head and appear on the Black Swan's head. Agent X remains alive (though apparently loses some of the personality
traits that he had copied from Deadpool). In order to avoid any possibility of the Black Swan's healing powers returning him to
life again, Agent X decides to take the corpse to a taxidermist. Agent X invites Deadpool to join Agency X; he declines. Agent
X and Deadpool squabble comedically as the supporting cast stroll off to celebrate victory by buying breakfast. Full moon.
NYX #1 (8-24)
The day after NYX 1 (5-7). It is a school day, but it can't be Friday because Kiden's class is given an assignment for
"tomorrow." At school, Kiden gets into a fight with the school bully, Hector Morales. After school, on their way home, they are
attacked by Hector and his thugs. Kiden's mutant powers emerge, freezing time. When she touches Hector, time restarts, but
Hector's arm is broken. Green trees.
DAREDEVIL v2 #39 (13-22)
The day after DD2 39 (1-12). Hector Ayala's trial continues. Among the people appearing at the trial are Reed Richards,
Stephen Strange, Luke Cage, Danny Rand, Robert Diamond, and Jessica Jones.
X-STATIX #8 (7-11)
Probably the day after XS 8 (1-6). Orphan is back with X-Statix and Anarchist becomes team leader.
DEADLINE #4 (5-21)
One day. DL 3 is referred to as having occurred "the other day." The Tinkerer probably appears here before SECWAR 1. The
Bugle headline today reads, "Hellfire Club Sex Scandal." The newspaper date is "---sday, October 8." Kat busts Paul Swanson,
and Ben Urich helps Kat think about the story she's investigating. Kat solves the mystery of Alice Hart's death, Judge Hart and
Tinkerer come to terms with the truth, and Kat decides to scrap her story for their benefit. We see autumn colors and coats here,
and Kat has "a freezing tush" jogging in New York; these references must be topical.
ALIAS #16 (1-12)
One day. It is "a couple of days" before ALIAS 19. Jessica stops a minor robbery and meets Spider-Woman, who must appear
here after END.
Wednesday, October 9
ALIAS #16 (13-22)
The early morning after ALIAS 16 (2-12). This segment occurs before a Thursday during the White Tiger trial, so it's during the
"few days" between DD2 39 (1-12) and DD2 40. Scott Lang comes over to talk. They go back to his place. Jessica calls Clay
Quartermain at SHIELD to get information on Spider-Woman. The clock reads 4:44 AM.
NYX #2 (1-16)
The day after NYX 1 (8-24). It is "six months" before NYX 2 (17-22). Out for revenge, Hector brings a gun into school and
fires at Kiden, who uses her powers to stop time. She sidesteps the bullet but when she touches Hector, time restarts. The bullet
resumes moving and hits teacher Cameron Palmer instead.
NYX #4 - FB (5:4-6:3)
The same day as NYX 2 (1-16). Kiden flees the school in panic. She goes to the hospital, intending to check on Cameron's
condition, but there are too many school staff there. Believing that the police will be looking for her at home and at school,
Kiden decides to live on the streets.
X-STATIX #8 (12-22)
The day after XS 8 (7-11). X-Statix fight and defeat Bad Guy. Solomon delivers a dying Sharon Ginsberg to X-Statix. Venus
takes Orphan to the dimension where she teleported her family.
DAREDEVIL v2 #40
The day after DD2 39 (13-22), and thus a Wednesday. It is a "few days" after DD2 39 (1-12) and a "few months" after DD2 38
(1-6). The final day of Hector's trial, so it's after ALIAS 16 (13-22). The trial ends with Hector's death in front of the
courthouse, with Matt, Cage, and Danny Rand present. Green shrubs and blowing leaves. Rain that night.
DAREDEVIL v2 #68 - FB (3-4)
The same day as DD2 40. It is during the "year" before DD2 68. Matt Murdock kneels next to the slain body of Hector Ayala on
the steps of the courthouse.
UNCANNY X-MEN #416
One day, "a few days" after UX 415. Sammy hasn't been assigned a room at Xavier's yet and Xavier still hasn't given him an
orientation, presumably "because everyone's so busy," even though it's been weeks since he came on board in UX 410. Sammy
hasn't made friends yet, but he and Juggernaut start to bond. Given his awe of X-Men, Glob Herman's appearance here probably
predates his joining the Omega Gang in X 135. Stacy X is released from the infirmary while Northstar is still recuperating.
Lorna has been called about Alex and is expected to arrive at Xavier's "in the morning" (it is not known where she has been
since hooking back up with the X-Men in X 132). We see green grass and trees at Westchester. It is cool enough for jackets and
UNCANNY X-MEN #417 (1-7)
It must be the same night as UX 416. As Warren sleeps, dreaming of Psylocke, Paige makes a discovery on the internet about
one of Warren's businesses.
Thursday, October 10
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #1
One day, "days" before CM6 2-FB (6-13) and "one month" (also noted as "approximately a month") before CM6 2. Unable to
cope with his cosmic awareness, Captain Marvel goes insane. Full moon.
UNCANNY X-MEN #417 (8-22)
The day after UX 417 (1-7). It is "a few weeks" after UX 410-413. The weather is nice enough for a game of catch. Husk is
dwelling on her past relationship with Chamber; this suggests that this issue must occur before Jonathon's return to Xavier's in
CHAMBER 4 (19-22). Wolverine is with the group in New York (suggesting that he and Ororo have separated, at least
temporarily ). He has the goatee seen in XX 21, and he gets slashed up by Maximus Lobo.
UNCANNY X-MEN #418
The same day as the UX 417 (8-22). Lorna arrives at Xavier's, so it must be the day after UX 416. Archangel and Husk try to
take on Maximus Lobo. Green trees in Westchester County.
UNCANNY X-MEN #419
The same day as UX 418. It is "a few months" before UX 426. Archangel and Husk have a respite from Maximus Lobo's attack
while Havok awakens at Xavier's and Nightcrawler questions God. Green grass and trees in New York.
UNCANNY X-MEN #420
The same day as UX 419. Warren discovers that his blood has healing powers as the X-Men defeat Maximus Lobo and his
Dominant Species werewolves. Given Warren's discovery, this story must occur before XU 45 (24). Green grass and trees in
X-STATIX #9 (1-15)
Probably the day after XS 8 (12-22). X-Statix finishes a mission in Africa, then watch the dailies of "X-Statix: The Movie" in
California. Sharon Ginsberg awakens in a hospital to find her wings removed and goes berserk.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #1 (21-32)
One day, presumably on "Easter," "seven months" after CA4 1 (1-20), but this, unfortunately, must be a topical reference.
Besides, why all the time between these issues and the Independence Day setting of CA4 4? It's extremely unlikely that Cap
would wait any more than a few days (never mind three months) to confront Fury about the SHIELD technology found on
terrorists. This story must occur after CA '01, in which Cap's ID is still secret, and probably after DL 1, in which Cap's identity
is a matter of speculation.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #2
The same day as CA4 1 (21-32).
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #3
The same day as CA4 2. Cap unmasks on national television. This revelation has also been placed after the revelation of
Daredevil's identity in DD2 32-33, as determined by ALIAS chronology. It is "four months" before CA4 7.
DAREDEVIL v2 #41
One day. This story must occur after DD:T 1. Daredevil rescues a blind woman named Milla, who becomes infatuated with him.
The Owl is setting up shop as the new kingpin of crime in New York now that Wilson Fisk is out of the picture. Jacket weather
and green trees in Manhattan. Crescent moon.
ALIAS #17-FB (4-7)
Late one night, perhaps the night of the day after ALIAS 16 (13-22), Jessica meets with J. Jonah Jameson about Mattie Franklin's
Friday, October 11
ALIAS #17-FB (9-21)
The early morning after ALIAS 17-FB (4-7). Jessica learns about Captain America being outed, which is all over the TV, so it
must be the early morning after CA4 3. Later she encounters Madame Web. Jessica Drew's answering machine suggests that it's
"April," but this can't be right.
The same early morning as ALIAS 17-FB (9-21). Jessica stops having sex with Scott Lang to tell him about her day.
DAREDEVIL v2 #42 (1-17)
The morning after DD2 41. Milla has DD on her mind. Daredevil finds the Owl and intimidates him and his crony. Ingersoll
talks to Rosenthal about the newspaper's case against Matt Murdock. "The judge is going to set a trial start date next week." We
see green grass and trees at Rosenthal's place, where he is taking a swim.
ALIAS #18 (1-7)
The same morning as ALIAS 17. Jessica goes home and reports to work for Matt Murdock.
DAREDEVIL v2 #42 (18) ~ ALIAS 18 (8)
The same morning as DD2 42 (17) and ALIAS 18 (1-7). Tara Woods tries to interview Matt Murdock and Jessica Jones. We see
bare trees in Manhattan.
DAREDEVIL v2 #42 (19-23)
The same morning as DD2 42 (18). Matt and Jessica arrive at Matt's office, where Milla waits. Rosenthal is murdered in his
ALIAS #18 (9-16)
The same day as ALIAS 18 (8). Jessica interviews the last person to see Mattie Franklin.
DAREDEVIL v2 #43
The same day as DD2 42 (19-23). Mr. Rosenthal's lawyer arrives back at Rosenthal's mansion, to find the police swarming the
place. Milla meets with Matt alone in his office and they hit it off. She asks him out on a date, and he asks for time to think it
over. Foggy chews Matt out, saying another woman in his life is the last thing he needs right now. The discussion turns to the
Owl, and how he's spreading the MGH drug on the street. Matt wants to take him out, but Foggy still urges secrecy. He asks
Matt to let someone else handle it. Matt says Spider-Man is out of town, and Luke Cage won't return his phone calls. Matt goes
to Luke's apartment later that day. Luke says he's been avoiding Matt since the White Tiger trial, not because Hector died, but
because he's fed up with Matt lying to everyone about not being DD. After Luke refuses to help him, a stressed-out DD beats up
drug dealers on the street. That evening, Matt shows up at Milla's. Foggy is shown getting ready for an ACLU fund raiser being
held downtown, when suddenly, the two cops from Rosenthal's mansion appear at the doorstep to their law office, a search
warrant in their hands. Spidey is out of town, which means he is not teaching school today.
X-STATIX #9 (16-22)
The day after XS 9 (1-15). X-Statix defeat Sharon Ginsberg at the movie studio then report to the press on their African
UNCANNY X-MEN #421 (1-21:1)
Probably the day after UX 420. Scott and Jean seem to be on friendly terms, so this segment should occur prior to Jean's trip to
Hong Kong, first referenced in X 134 (3-22). Juggernaut asks to stay with the X-Men. Professor X fills Havok in on what he
missed during his coma, then Polaris proposes to Havok and they plan to leave on an archaeological dig. Nightcrawler decides to
join them. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
DAREDEVIL v2 #44
The same evening as DD2 43. Milla and Matt are our walking the streets having a good time, till they get close to Matt's house
and find the cops swarming it. Matt talks to the cops swarming his house. They believe he's a suspect in Rosenthal's murder.
The cops inform him that Rosenthal was murdered this morning ''between 9 and 12 noon." They take Matt and Milla down to
the police station for questioning. Milla says she was with Matt this morning in his law office, so he couldn't have murdered
anyone, but she doesn't let the cops know she's figured out Matt's DD. Foggy stops by, but Matt says he can handle the cops on
his own. As the interrogation heats up, one of the out of town cops gets angry and rips open Matt's shirt, hoping to expose a
costume beneath. He's bare-chested though. The Chief of the Precinct has seen enough, and is scared of being sued by Matt, so
she stops the interrogation and lets Matt and company go. The cops report that they found nothing in Matt's house or office,
though his home basement was clean. Matt and Foggy leave the Police Precinct, to find the Press swarming outside. That same
night, Mr. Anad confronts the Owl, holding up a newspaper talking about Rosanthal's murder, and showing Matt being escorted
by police (it must be a late extra edition). Anad asks if the Owl was behind this. Owl playfully likes to think he was, and thinks
DD is out of the picture. In the opening pages, as Matt and Milla walk the street, they were long sleeve coats and scarfs,
suggesting it's cold, but considering Rosenthal was swimming outside that morning, it must be that time of year where it's warm
during the day, and cold at night.
ALIAS #18 (13-16)
The same night as ALIAS 18 (1-12). Jessica and tries to get into the club where she was hanging out.
Saturday, October 12
ALIAS #18 (17-22)
The early morning after ALIAS 18 (9-16). Jessica gets into the club to find Mattie being used for creating drugs.
The same day as ALIAS 18 (17-22). It is "a couple of days" after ALIAS 16 (1-12). Jessica gets thrown out of the club, checks
herself into a hospital briefly, and goes home, only to meet Jessica Drew. Mattie is "sixteen."
HUMAN TORCH #2 - FB
One morning. Johnny's Storm's high school classmate Mike Snow watches fellow firefighter Vinnie Costellow burst into flame
at their station.
HUMAN TORCH #2
Same day as HT 2-FB. Johnny Storm and Jian appear here after they are put in administrative positions at FF Inc. in FF3 66 (20-
21). Johnny sets out to break a new land-speed record in the southern Oregon desert, but a reporter from the Public Eye throws a
wrench into the attempt; this event is noted as having occurred "the other day" in HT 7. When Johnny returns to the Baxter
Building, Mike Snow is there to ask him to investigate Vinnie's combustion.
HUMAN TORCH #3 (1-7:2)
The same evening as HT 2. Snow and Johnny check out Vinnie's corpse. It is "forty-four hours" before HT 3 (7-21).
X-MEN UNLIMITED #44
One "hot day," with green grass and trees in Westchester. Given the relationship that has grown between Sammy and
Juggernaut, this story likely occurs after UX 421 (1-21) and before Sammy's departure in UX 422. Jean is at Xavier's in this
story, and she meets Sammy for the first time, so it can't be very long after UX 410. Kurt appears here, but he doesn't appear to
be in a position of leadership, which is consistent with his status between UX 421 (1-21) and UX 421 (21-22). Logan is here
without a goatee; apparently he's shaved the goatee he sported in XX 21 and UX 417-420. Juggernaut learns a lesson as the X-
Men deal with some local boys who torture animals. There appears to be no school today, so it is likely a weekend day if this
occurs during the school season (although there are apparently Sunday classes, as in X 135).
NYX #4 - FB (6:4-8)
One day, perhaps a few days after NYX 4-FB (5-6). Kiden is sleeping in an alley when she's attacked by muggers. She freezes
time and finally works out how to turn her powers on and off at will. Kiden finds that the longer she freezes time, the more
euphoric she becomes. She decides to simply leave her powers on.
One day, sometime before W/D 1. While helping Orphan clean out Edie Sawyer's room, Venus Dee Milo reads Edie's diary. It
is "months" after Edie's death in XFO 128. As a note of irony, I've placed this issue on what I posit would be Edie's twenty-first
birthday, a year after XS 10-FB (21) and two years after XS 10-FB (4).
AGENT X #15/2 (1:1)
One day. The staff of Agency X ride a roller coaster during their "first company vacation." This isn't necessarily at the
amusement park at which they're headquartered (that wouldn't be much of a vacation); it could be at a Florida resort destination.
DAREDEVIL v2 #45 (1-8)
The day after DD2 44. The Kingpin (still heavily scarred from all the stab wounds, but not wearing his dark glasses) visits
Sammy Silke in prison to kill him. Matt and Foggy are hiding from the press at the New Yorker Hotel. Matt calls Milla up and
leaves an apology on her answering machine. Foggy then apologizes to Matt, saying everyone's been giving Matt hell lately, and
says Matt can now do whatever he wants to, Foggy won't coach him anymore, he'll just offer support. Matt suddenly realizes
that with their having to lay low, the Owl will try to make his move that night. Green grass in Pennsylvania, where we see some
people wearing jackets but others don't.
Sunday, October 13
DAREDEVIL v2 #45 (9-21)
Early the morning after DD2 45 (1-8). The Owl is meeting with Anad and an illegal doctor who is manufacturing the MGH. The
FBI burst in, and confront all of them. FBI Agent Driver casually lets slide to Mr. Anad that Sammy Silke was murdered in
prison this morning. The Owl starts to escape, the stash of MGH in his hands, when suddenly DD appears out in the street as the
Owl flees the building. They fight and DD defeats him. DD hands the drugs to Agent Driver and leaves. Full moon.
DAREDEVIL v2 #46 (1-10)
The same day as DD2 45 (9-21). On the set of a soap opera film stage, actress Typhoid Mary is visited by the Kingpin (wearing
his dark glasses), who she doesn't recognize in her persona of Mary. He slaps her and breaks the hypnotism responsible for the
multiple-personality Mary leading a normal life, resulting in the return of Typhoid. Meanwhile, Milla hears on the radio about
how DD broke up the Owl's crime ring "last night." She's amazed that Matt can go on a date, answer questions by the police,
and turn around and go fight crime. Flowers arrive with an apology from Matt, and she decides to see him again.
X-MEN UNLIMITED #45 (1-24:2)
One day. A jealous co-worker nearly slays Guardian, and during the ensuing battle, Heather Hudson gives birth to a girl. It is
"days" before XU 45 (24). Earthmover, who must appear here after W2 180 (21-23), wants to go to a Canadiens game, so it
must be after the pre-season begins in late September. Green grass and trees in Canada.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #4
One night. We see fireworks in Washington DC, but given the crossover with the chronology of DD2 and ALIAS, it may be a
Columbus Day celebration; the references to "July 4" are in the narration only, not in story dialog or visuals. It's likely within
days after CA4 1-3, given the urgency of the terrorists' SHIELD technology.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #5 (1-15)
Same night as CA4 4. Cap defeats some terrorists and has a discussion with Nick Fury. We see more fireworks and narrative
reference to "July 4."
Monday, October 14: Columbus Day
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #5 (16-22)
The day after CA4 5 (1-15). The reference to "July the fifth" must be topical. There's another reference here to the events of
terrorist attacks of "September the Eleventh, 2001." Steve Rogers flies to Dresden and walks into a building rigged with
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #6
The same day as CA4 5 (16-22). This story must occur before SECWAR 2-FB (1-8).
AGENT X #15/2 (1:2)
One day. The staff of Agency X are at a tourist spot in crocodile country during their "first company vacation."
DAREDEVIL v2 #46 (11-15)
The night of the day after DD2 46 (1-10). The Kingpin shows up in Bolivia, where he finds Mr. Dini, who was last seen helping
Vanessa Fisk sell off Kingpin's empire. Kingpin relates how he woke up alone in a hospital in the mountains of Jabal Katrina,
found out his wife had left him there, and returned to America to find his wife gone, his son murdered, his empire divided up and
sold off, and his ''trump card," DD's identity, blown. He then shoots and kills Dini.

"tribe," a group of homeless kids.
DEADLINE #4 (22-23)
One day. Kat's substitute newspaper column appears in the Daily Bugle, seen with a date of "Tuesday, October 8, 2002." The
same date, October 8, is seen on another issue of the Bugle the previous week, in DL 4 (5-21), and this reference may be the
incorrect one, although "Tuesday" may be right. Since Kat was given a week to come up with the story in DL 1, it should be a
week after DL 1 here. Johnny Storm cameos here.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #2 - FB (6-13)
One day, "days" after CM6 1. Captain Marvel approaches the Punisher to learn discipline from him. According to the
Punisher's War Journal, it is "October 15, 2002." The year is topical, but I'll accept the month and day. It is "two weeks" before
CM6 2-FB (16-20).

X-MEN UNLIMITED #45 (24:3-24:7)
One day, "days" after XU 45 (1-24). Archangel has used his new healing power to save Guardian, so this segment must occur
between UX 420 and UX 421 (23-24). Jean and Logan (sans goatee) are here too. The three X-Men may have been summoned
the day of Mac's near death in XU 45 (1-24) and have remained with Alpha Flight until Angel's healing allowed Mac to regain
consciousness in this segment.

One day. The staff of Agency X surf.

Wisconsin having "nice foliage this time of year," suggesting that it's autumn.
INHUMANS v4 #10 (1-2)
It must be the same night as INH4 9 (12-21), as Chase is at a rest stop eight miles from Madison.
Friday, October 18

Probably the day after INH4 10 (1-2). Chase attacks and abducts Nahrees and shoots Damon Hart. Everyone is partying,
suggesting it's a weekend. Green grass and trees in Madison, where it is warm enough at night for light clothing. The moon is
out, but it's hard to tell the phase.
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #3 - FB (5:1-5:3)
One day, sometime before AAF2 1. It must be a year before AHOS 3. Anya and Lynn are a couple of wallflowers at their "8th

Probably the day after INH4 10 (3-20), as Nahrees is in Chicago, a prisoner of Terry Haller.
INHUMANS v4 #11 (6-11)
Presumably the same day as INH4 10 (20-23). It is "one month" after INH4 11-FB (5:5-5:6). The students consult with
Medusa via hologram while Terry Haller considers killing Nahrees to gain the genetic information to save his son. Green grass
and trees in Madison.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #2 - FB (15:2)
One day. Rick Jones cleans the stalls of rare intergalactic animals aboard the cargo transporter.

The early morning after INH4 11 (6-11). The students arrive at Haller Labs in "the middle of the night." Chase shoots Jolen in

PUNISHER v6 #33
One early morning. Daredevil enlists Spider-Man and Wolverine to help him capture the Punisher. Meanwhile, across town, the
Punisher goes looking for mobster Mickey Cloonan and ends up slaughtering large numbers of the Irish mob in a warehouse
shootout. In the aftermath, a dying mobster tells the Punisher that there is a big auction coming, where everyone will be present.
The Punisher goes to Kevin's bar and asks Martin Soap about the auction. Soap has heard of a big event but doesn't know much
more. The Punisher goes to the streets and beats up snitches until he gets information - the auction is at 3 AM that morning.
Punisher goes to interrogate another informant, Inskipp, who is allied with Daredevil. Daredevil, Spidey and Wolverine confront
the Punisher, who baffles them by suggesting that they go to a diner.
PUNISHER v6 #34
The same early morning as PUN6 33. In a diner, the Punisher provokes Wolverine into a berserker rage and then escapes in the
confusion. Once Daredevil and Spider-Man calm Wolverine down, they start to plan again. The Punisher attends the auction and
slaughters everyone present. He makes off with the prize - an unconscious man in the back of a truck. At first the Punisher
cannot understand what the fuss was all about, but when he gets home and watches a video which was to have been shown at the
auction, he realizes that it's Banner. We see a leafy tree.
PUNISHER v6 #35
The same day as PUN6 34. This issue occurs "eight days" before PUN6 37 (1-17). The Punisher feeds stew laced with
explosives to the baffled, amnesiac Bruce Banner. Soap waits for Lucky's Bar to open when he is mugged by schoolgirls. Kevin
arrives to open up and mentions that Soap has been in the bar drinking, and not turning up for work , for four days now. On a
rooftop, Daredevil, Spider-Man and Wolverine discuss strategy again. The Punisher needs to buy "a couple of days" before his
plan will be ready., so he goes to Hell's Kitchen and tortures a criminal, Tim McKinney, whose screams draw Daredevil's
attention, and the three heroes duly respond. The Punisher ambushes them and leads them into a booby-trapped house.
Wolverine and Spider-Man both fall into the Punisher's traps, but Daredevil evades the traps and reaches the Punisher. They
fight, and Daredevil gets the upper hand. It is warm enough for a group of Girl Scouts to wear short skirts.
PUNISHER v6 #36 (1-13)
The same day as PUN6 35. It is "eight days" before PUN6 36 (14-17). The Punisher defeats Daredevil and dislocates both his
shoulders before leaving. He figures that the heroes will need a couple of days to recover before they'll be in a state to come
after him. He returns to his hideout and continues plying Banner with stew. Kevin finds Soap in the toilets of Lucky's Bar,
about to commit suicide. Kevin stops him, and sends Soap home to kill himself there. Soap finally snaps and threatens to kill
Kevin. When Kevin begs for his life, Soap decides to do his job properly and actually arrest the Punisher.
INHUMANS v4 #12 (13-20:1)
The same afternoon and evening as INH4 12 (1-12). Nahrees checks on the hospitalized Damon Hart. Tonaja tells Alaris she's
in love with Dewoz. Tonaja asks Medusa why she and her friends were sent to Earth. Green trees in Madison.
HUMAN TORCH #5 (6-9)
One day. HT 5 (1-5) is noted as having occurred "the other day." There is no sign of Asgard in a panoramic view of the
Manhattan skyline; I've placed this segment before T2 46. Johnny enjoys a cookout with Mike Snow and Rose Delany (so it
may be a weekend day). Donner calls Delany to investigate the fires. Green grass and trees in New York.
HUMAN TORCH #6 - FB (4)
The same day as HT 5 (6-9). After Donner's call, Delany confronts the fact that she's the one responsible for the fires.
HUMAN TORCH #5 (10-21)
The same day as HT 6-FB (4). As Johnny and Donner follow up on their investigation, they suspect Mike Snow, but Johnny
discovers that Rose with the flame power. Green grass and trees in New York.
HUMAN TORCH #6 (1-17)
The same night as HT 5 (6-21). Johnny tries to take Rose in to the authorities but she kills herself. Green grass and trees in New

airing of the TV show Alias, suggesting it's a Monday.
DAREDEVIL v2 #65 - FB (12-16)
One day, perhaps less than "13 months" before DD2 65. This flashback must occur after CA4 3, since Cap's identity is known.
Inside Central Park, Matt Murdock meets up with Captain America, who tries to offer assistance and comfort regarding the
public knowledge of DD's identity.
Tuesday, October 22
AGENT X #15/2 (1:5)
One day. The staff of Agency X pose in front of the Eiffel Tower during their "first company vacation." This segment may
occur after UX 408 (1-18), the first time the tower we see it rebuilt after the destruction of Paris in UX 406 (1-21).
CHAMBER #4 (19-22)
One day, "one month" after CHAMBER 4 (1-18) - long enough for Gigi Martin to be sentenced. Chamber has returned to
Xavier's from ESU, so this segment must occur after UX 421 (1-21), given that Paige was brooding about the absent Chamber in
UX 417. Given that Scott congratulates Jono on his mission and Jono then quits the X-Men to be a teacher at the school, it is
presumed that he has just returned, and that this segment occurs shortly before UX 422, where it's clear that Jono and Paige have
not had much opportunity to clear the air. Since Walter has enrolled at Xavier's as the school's first non-mutant student and
Jono is surprised at his ability to do so, this segment must occur a while before X 134 (3-22). Falling leaves and jacket weather.
The newspaper date here is "Tuesday, November 2, 2002" - the year is topical, the day of the week may be correct, and the date
may just be close; the weather noted on the paper is "partly cloudy, chance of snow, high 25-30."
HUMAN TORCH #6 (19:4-21)
One day, not long after HT 6 (18-19). Mike Snow packs up to move to Oregon. Green grass and trees in New York.
Wednesday, October 23
THE HOOD #1
One day. 9-11 is referenced here, so this issue occurs after ASM236. Small-time crook Parker Robbins visits his
institutionalized mother, sees Electro picking up women in a bar, rejects an offer from Hydra, sleeps with his mistress, and
returns home to his pregnant girlfriend. With the help of his cousin, recovering drug addict John King, Parker breaks into a
Brooklyn warehouse in the hopes of obtaining a rumored "major shipment." They encounter an otherwordly creature and Parker
kills it, taking its boots and hooded cape. Later that night, Parker discovers that the mystical footwear allows him to walk on air.
There is a reference to Rudy Giuliani being "gone five months."
SPIDER-MAN: BLACK & BLUE & READ ALL OVER #1 - FB (5:6, 6:7)
One day, "almost six months" before SM:BBRAO 1 (1-12). As Spidey watches, a fearful cop encounters the Vulture committing
a crime and lets him go, figuring it was Spidey's job to stop the villain.
HUMAN TORCH #7
One rainy night in the Balkans. Given that HT 2 is referred to as having occurred "the other day," this story must occur very
shortly after HT 6 (19-21). Johnny and Jian travel to eastern Europe to investigate a mystery surrounding the Locust Project, a
grant applicant to FF Inc. After meeting contact Hugo Novick, the two enter the castle headquarters of the project, only to be
Thursday, October 24
HUMAN TORCH #8
The day after HT 7. Johnny awakens to discover that he has been shrunk to an inch tall and lives in a miniature land in the castle
headquarters of the Locust Project, which he learns from project leader Ambrose is an effort to solve hunger by shrinking
HUMAN TORCH #9
The same day as HT 8. Shyla kills Ambrose and makes it look like Johnny is the assassin. Johnny, joined by Jian and Hugo, is
taken to the pit.
HUMAN TORCH #10 (1-19)
The same day as HT 9. It is "days" before HT 10 (20-21). Johnny, Jian, and Hugo escape the pit. Hugo sacrifices himself in the
battle against Shyla, and Johnny, Jian and a number of other Project Locust folks are enlarged to normal height.
THE HOOD #2
The day after HOOD 1. The Golem, a former underboss for the Kingpin, tries to recruit a bruiser named Mosh, but when Mosh
refuses, he has Rapier dispatch him. Parker shows up at John's place to show off his ability to fly and they discover that the
cloak makes Parker invisible when he holds his breath. Armed with his newfound powers, Parker robs a firearms store and plans
with John to steal a shipment of black-market diamonds coming "this weekend" on "Saturday." Golem, the importer of the
diamonds, hires Shocker, Constrictor, and Jack O' Lantern to protect the shipment.
SHE-HULK v3 #6 - FB (17:6)
One day. The Awesome Android lends a coworker a helping hand at GLK&H.
Friday, October 25
One rainy day in Washington, DC, Congresswoman Libby Shaughnessy decides to vote against a war resolution.
UNCANNY X-MEN #421 (21:2-23:6)
One day. Havok and Polaris leave with Nightcrawler for Bermuda. Cyclops is among those who see them off, but Jean is not.
Scott tells Alex that Alex "just got back" from his coma, so the time between UX 419 and this segment must be fairly short. It is
two days before UX 421 (23-24). Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
PUNISHER v7 #10 - FB (5:2)
One day, shortly before PUN7 10-FB (4:3). It is the "year" before PUN7 10. Ol' Man Nesbitt lies on his deathbed with his
lawyer by his side.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #3 - FB (16-18:2)
One day. This flashback probably occurs after PPSM2 50 (28-35) and AX 6 (1-15). Since Mr. Fear is incarcerated here, this
flashback must occur after DL 2. Vault officer Rozalyn Backus reviews the files of her prisoners. In the prison workout room
are Crossfire, Mandrill, Corruptor, Controller, Mr. Fear, Rhino, and Armadillo. Crossfire talks his cellmate into hanging himself.
Saturday, October 26
THE HOOD #3
The "Saturday" after HOOD 2. When Parker tries to heist the black-market diamonds, he is attacked by Constrictor, Shocker,
Rapier, and Jack O' Lantern. During his escape, Parker accidentally shoots NYPD officer Eric Bondi, while John is apprehended
by authorities. Dubbed "the Hood," Parker is now the fugitive most wanted by FBI agents Victor Infante and Wyatt Sobel, who
hope to restore public confidence in the FBI by taking the Hood down. The date of "July 14" for this incident, seen on the cover
of HOOD 5, contradicts the Halloween reference in HOOD 6 and must be topical.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #3 - FB (18:3, 18:5-19:3)
One day, shortly after SM:BO 3-FB (16-18). Armadillo attacks Crossfire for killing his friend, but Crossfire uses a homemade
shiv to activate Armadillo's inhibitor collar, incapacitating his attacker.
X-23 #6 (23)
One day, "two years" after X-23 6 (1-22). This segment occurs before NYX 3 (1-12). X-23 wears an X-jacket, but that doesn't
mean she's already met the X-Men. She gets off a bus in New York City, where we see brown leaves and coat weather.
MACHINE TEEN #4 - FB
One day, "about a year" before MTEEN 4. J.T. works in Dr. Isaacs' shop and finds the prototype body for Adam.
Sunday, October 27
THE HOOD #4 (1-9)
The early morning after HOOD 3. Constrictor, Shocker, Rapier, and Jack O'Lantern report back to Golem. Bondi is in a coma
at the hospital, while Parker tries to lay low at his mistress' place and John gets interrogated by Infante and Sobel.
One day. Confusion leads to a beacon of hope amidst terrorist activity in Haida, Israel.
One day. A crippled journalist dwells on his love of dance.
UNCANNY X-MEN #422 - FB
One day. Stacy X makes a risque video for Warren before leaving Xavier's.
UNCANNY X-MEN #421 (23:7-24)
Probably the same night as UX 422-FB. "2 nights" after UX 421 (21-23), Alpha Flight barges into Xavier's school to take the
children. Heather Hudson is no longer pregnant and James Hudson is healed, so this segment must occur after XU 45 (24) - and
apparently the Hudsons' gratefulness for Warren saving James has waned. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
UNCANNY X-MEN #422
The same night as UX 421 (23-24). Nightcrawler, Havok, and Polaris discover an ancient mutant city on an archaeological dig
and encounter the Church of Humanity. Warren watches Stacy's video. Chamber appears here at Xavier's after his return in
ESU, and likely afer he quit the X-Men in CHAMBER 4 (19-22). Alpha Flight have come to retrieve the children at Xavier's
school in the wake of the "recent riot," but that reference may not be to X 135-137. The X-Men battle Alpha Flight and only
Squidboy ends up leaving Xavier's in the end. A conversation between Juggernaut and Squidboy leads one to assume that Emma
is alive, so this issue must occur before X 139 (21-22). It is "a few weeks" before UX 423 and 429, but also presumably "a few
months" before UX 424 - only one can be correct, probably the former. Green grass and trees in Westchester. Full moon.
THE HOOD #4 (10-22)
The same evening as HOOD 4 (1-9). The TV news reports on Captain America and the Avengers recovering some canisters that
turned out not to contain sarin. Also in the news is the Hood's shooting of Bondi and John's arrest. Infante and Sobel try to find
the Hood, with the assistance of fellow FBI employees dressed in AIM gear that was confiscated "during that big Hydra sting
back in '99." Parker attempts to break John out of jail and in fighting the FBI, discovers that he can shoot bolts of electricity.
John refuses to be broken out and insists that Parker use the stolen gems to buy an expensive lawyer who can defend him.
Meanwhile, Golem warns every fence in town to be on the lookout for anyone trying to peddle his missing gems.
THE HOOD #5 (1-3)
The same night as HOOD 4 (10-22). Bondi's wife reads to her comatose husband in the hospital, while the Hood checks on the
subdued FBI agents.
HUMAN TORCH #10 (20-21)
One night, "days" after HT 10 (1-19). Still in the Balkans, Johnny and Jian pay their respects to the deceased Hugo.
Monday, October 28
THE HOOD #5 (4-10)
The day after HOOD 5 (1-3). A reference is made to Matt Murdock maybe being Daredevil, so this story occurs sometime after
DD2 32 (20-22). Parker returns home and tells his girlfriend about John's plight, then he goes out to see if he can sell the stolen
diamonds. Before he reveals the gems, he encounters the Shocker in a pawn shop and discovers the danger of selling them. He
also learns about the FBI's bounty on his head.
X-STATIX #6 (1-8)
One day. Orphan has been missing for a while, since XS 5 (18-22). Professor X helps Venus Dee Milo with her powers while
the rest of the team appear on Lacuna's show. It is long enough before XS 6 (9-15) for profits at X-Statix cafes to be tallied as
having declined two percent.
PUNISHER v6 #36 (14-17)
One day, "eight days" after PUN6 36 (1-13) and "a while" after DD2 32 (20-32). The Punisher challenges the three heroes to
meet him at his warehouse hideout in Red Hook at 4 PM. As Spidey, Daredevil, and Wolverine arrive, the Punisher beats up
Banner, who turns into the savage Hulk.
PUNISHER v6 #37 - FB
The same day as PUN6 36 (14-17). After transforming, the Hulk reads a note the Punisher left him: "You are the Hulk. You like
PUNISHER v6 #36 (18-22)
The same day as PUN6 37-FB. The Punisher escapes down a manhole and the Hulk attacks Daredevil, Spidey, and Wolverine.
PUNISHER v6 #37 (1-17)
The same day as PUN6 36 (18-22). It is "eight days" after PUN6 35. Because this story involves Savage Hulk, this segment
must occur before H3 34 (1-11). Given that Matt denies to the Punisher that he's Daredevil in PUN6 36, this segment must
occur before DD2 50 - and so before DD2 46 (16-21) - because public knowledge of his secret identity doesn't seem to be a
concern to Matt after that point. Spider-Man, Daredevil and Wolverine struggle to contain the Hulk. The Hulk hurls Wolverine
away, and Wolverine lands in Boston. The Punisher fights and defeats Daredevil, tying him up. Eventually the Punisher
detonates the explosives in the Hulk's stomach, which knocks the Hulk out. The explosion also knocks out Spider-Man. The
Punisher berates Daredevil for wasting his time and leaves. Meanwhile, Martin Soap beats up Inskipp and demands to know
where the Punisher is. He arrives in time to catch the Punisher leaving the scene and attempts to arrest him. Soap says that he
plans to turn himself in as well. The Punisher ignores him, and Soap shoots him in the chest, to no avail, since Frank's costume
is bulletproof. A broken man, Soap collapses in tears. The Punisher wanders off. As night falls, Wolverine is on a train which
he thinks is taking him back to New York, but he's heading to Philadelphia in the wrong train.
Tuesday, October 29
HUMAN TORCH #11
One day. Johnny responds to a distress call from a lab off the Virginia coast, only to discover that Namorita and a group of
scientists have been mucking with the Negative Zone. Johnny and Nita avert disaster and talk about their ill-fated relationship.
Nita's last birthday was before she and Johnny broke up, and Johnny has had at least one girlfriend since the breakup.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #3 - FB (15:1)
One day during the "year" before M/KSM 3 (1-18). The Kingpin reads about a failed movie that he helped finance. This
flashback must occur before Fisk's defeat in DD2 50, and so perhaps before DD2 47-FB (1-13).
THE HOOD #5 (11-22).
Perhaps the day after HOOD 4 (4-10). In a clandestine phone call from John, Parker learns all about Golem and decides to drop
in on the crime boss to offer the gems to him for a "finder's fee." They agree to an exchange at Coney Island "in two hours."
THE HOOD #6 (1-13)
The same night as HOOD 5 (11-22). Parker shows up at Coney Island to make the exchange and gets the jump on Rapier, whom
he dresses in a cape and on whom he plants both the reward money and the gun used to shoot Bondi, so that when the FBI show
up, they shoot and kill her instead of him. Parker leaves the diamonds and eludes Shocker, Constrictor, and Jack O' Lantern, the
last of whom probably appears here before SECWAR 1/2. It is "two days before Halloween" and a reference is made to a Doop
costume. Blowing leaves and green trees.
Wednesday, October 30
THE HOOD #6 (14-23)
The day after HOOD 6 (1-13). John is cleared of all charges. Eric Bondi dies and Tony Stark leaves a message on his widow's
answering machine. Bondi's partner at the precinct calls to say that the Hood was not the woman who was killed last night.
Golem grieves over Rapier, his wife. Parker visits his institutionalized mother. The White Fang is born. Green trees.
X-MEN UNLIMITED #47/2 - FB
One day. Cyclops is attached and captured by a goon squad at a market. It is a "Wednesday," the day that Cyclops presumably
stocks up the groceries for Xavier's. This likely occurs before Scott takes off in X 139 (1-20). The weather is mild, judging by
the short sleeve shirts worn outdoors.
X-MEN UNLIMITED #47/2
The same day as XU 47/2-FB. A doctor prepares to remove the captive Cyclops' eyes for implantation into a client who wants
Scott's power (in a move similar to the tactics of the U-Men), but Cyclops scares the doc into releasing him.
DAREDEVIL v2 #47 - FB (1-13)
One day, "two days" before DD2 46 (16-21). This flashback may occur after M/KSM 3-FB (15:1). An Asian gang raids one of
the Owl's drug distribution centers, but is slaughtered by Typhoid Mary, who is accompanied by the Kingpin. We see short
sleeves and light jackets. Full moon.
One school day. It is "nearly one month" after SENT 6 (1-12). Juston uses the Sentinel to help a truck driver and Agent
Rinehart of the CSA investigates recent robot sightings in Antigo. Juston and the Sentinel respond to a plane crash. Green grass
and trees in Wisconsin. Full moon.
The same night as SENT 7. As Juston and the Sentinel help plane crash survivors, Rinehart and his squad attack.
SENTINEL #9 (1-17)
The same night as SENT 8. Juston and the Sentinel keep the CSA at bay while completing the rescue, then they depart.

The early morning after SENT 9 (1-17). Juston returns home and sees news coverage of the crash. His brother Chris has a
SENTINEL #10 (1-17)
The same day as SENT 9 (18-21). Juston and his dad rush Chris to the hospital. Juston's friends are at school when they learn
about Chris and go to the hospital. That night, Juston returns home and encounters Rinehart, then finds the Sentinel, which is
recovering data from its mutant hunting files.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #2 - FB (15:3)
One day. Rick Jones arrives at the Galaxion Center and starts looking for answers to the Captain Marvel dilemma.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #2 - FB (16-20)
The same day as CM6 2-FB (15:3). According to the Punisher's War Journal, it is "October 31," "Halloween," "two weeks"
after CM6 2-FB (6-13), during which time Captain Marvel has been staying with the Punisher. There are also dialog references
to "trick or treat" and a kid in a Halloween costume.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #1/2

One day, after WX:K 1. Early one morning, Weapon X invades Zodiac's fortress to retrieve a brainwashed Madison Jeffries,
who appears as Gemini. Weapon X appears to have slain Zodiac by destroying their headquarters (we'll see...), so I've placed

Probably the day after PPSM2 53 (1-3). On the "Monday" following PPSM2 52, Peter Parker is sporting bruises from the battle

Asgard floats over Manhattan. Green trees and heavy jacket weather in New York.

The day after SENTINEL2 5 (1-12). Juston visits his father at the hospital. Full moon.

only to discover Hana alive, an agent of Namor. Cap separates the Interrogator from his hand, inadvertently killing him. He

(XP2000) against Spidey, who wind in battle against them. Peter informs Aunt May that he won't make it to dinner, a clue that
this story occurs before the string of ASM2 issues that lead to MJ's return.

One day, long enough after ELEK2 22 for a new offshoot of the Hand to grow. It is "ten years" after EG&E 1-FB. Elektra visits
the grave of her father (where?), where she's attacked by a ninja who tells her to go to Moonshine's (a nightclub) and ask for
Rick. At Moonshine's, Elektra learns the story of a jazz musician who used to work there and his son, a basketball playing
college student who was recruited by the Hand. Elektra is told to return to the nightclub "at 9:45 tonight" and "take care" of a
man whose photo she is shown, then to go to an address on a sheet of paper for her "thank you." Upon leaving, she's is taunted
by the ninja who says this is a "big job."

The day after PPSM2 54 (5-21). Johnny Storm and Reed and Sue Richards guest star; Johnny is shown at the Baxter Building in
a suit and a secretary calls him "Mr. Storm," but no reference is made to his being in an administrative position at FF Inc., so this
story could occur before FF3 66 (20-21). With the help of XP2000 and Rocket Racer, Spidey shuts down the CEOs' betting

The day after E:G&E 3 (1-13). Elektra follows the basketball player after a game and overhears plans for a ceremony for tomorrow. She lets them know she knows about them.

The same day as IM3 60.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #54-FB

One day. Jenkins explains to the Livewires that, while it'd scare the "suits," he understands that they need to mod themselves,

Monday, November 18

Island," but they (along with enemy Mandrill) must end up getting reassigned temporarily to the Big House, where they are seen
next in S-H3 5-6.
LIVEWIRES #5 - FB (21)
One day. Jenkins explains to the Livewires that, despite the "suits'" obsession with making sure they won't go rogue, they'd
have to disobey their lesser directives...and that there's another glaring flaw with programming someone for loyalty, but the suits
haven't noticed it yet.
Tuesday, November 19

The day after PPTSS2 1 (1-3). This segment probably occurs after SENSM2 38-FB (3:2). It is a "Saturday." The bandages are removed from Flash's face, so this story probably occurs after PPSM2 57. Investigating a rash of vampire-like attacks, Spidey encounters Venom, who has been separated from Eddie Brock. We see a combination of jackets, shorts, green grass and trees, falling autumn leaves, and a brief shower in New York. It is warm enough for a rooftop party.

Probably the early morning (New York time) of the day after H3 35. Banner is haunted by the footage of the Hulk's Chicago
rampage. The Secret Conspiracy hires assassin Jink Slater to hunt down Banner, arranges the abduction of the body of just-
executed inmate Sandra Verdugo, and tries to persuade Doc Samson to join in the hunt for Banner, giving him "24 hours" to

executed "last week." In the aftermath, Verdugo ends up with Banner's laptop. Verdugo notes that it's "the hottest day of the
year" there in Kansas, but this may be an exaggeration to get Banner to buy her a drink; it may be the hottest day of the season,
part of an unusual warm spell.

Aviv firefight, but he sees a broadcast about Magda's impending execution. Although no postponement of the execution is
mentioned or implied in the story, it had to have been postponed from its announcement as being the next day in SX 11 (12-13).

The day after H3 38. It is "months" before H3 60 and "a year" after Verdugo was accused of murdering her own child. A
drugged Hulk encounters Verdugo in a cabin. Verdugo explains that Ricky Myers is still alive and that he is her and Doc

his lab and manages to contact Banner by computer, telling him to meet him in Motherlode, Colorado at 2 PM. The camera goes
dark and the Conspiracy believes that Samson is sleeping, when he has actually placed a patch over the eye, suspecting that the
camera is there.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #21 (1-6)

It is "a few years" after Reed tried to study the roots of Sue's invisibility powers. Spidey catches up with Eddie Brock, who reveals that he has cancer. Given that Peter was supposed to take Flash to a "monster truck rally" today, it is most likely a Sunday, a day that Peter would have off from school.

51-FB (4-5) appears in New York to exact revenge.

the Kingpin is "no longer an issue" and that he (Matt) has moved on in his life. Daredevil does not have a goatee here, so this

terror" following DD2 50. Daredevil busts some hoods in a warehouse who are doing some weapons smuggling. Punisher
appears and he and DD get into a fight. Daredevil kicks Frank's butt, knocking him out cold. DD calls the FBI to come and
arrest Frank; the implication here is that Frank is taken into custody, but either he escaped shortly after being brought in, or he
wakes up and escapes before the cops arrive after the end of this scene, as Frank has to be free for the events in PUN7 to take

the White Wolf, who offers Cole counsel in his journey to enlightenment as Black Panther. Kasper rejects it, seeing his stint as

suit and warns him he's in over his head. Green trees in New York. It is basketball season, judging from the reference that Tork
makes to the Knicks.

options about what to do about Sal Anthony.

Anthony away, but decides against both actions. It is a "week" after BP3 51-FB. Green grass and trees in New York.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #6 (8-22)
The day after PPTSS2 6 (1-7). M.J. meets Peter in a café and asks about the identity of his neighbor Karen, an indication that
M.J. hasn't been back very long. Indeed, Peter thinks to himself about his and M.J.'s reunion as if it's recent, so this story must
occur not long after ASM2 54 (1-20). He also notes his healing shoulder, which he dislocated in PPTSS2 5, so this story can't
occur long after that issue. Spidey encounters a more powerful Doc Ock (sometime after DL 2), who defeats the web-slinger,
dislocating his shoulder again - an event noted as having occurred "recently" in PPTSS2 14 (1-9). The villain tells Spidey to
reveal his true identity or face certain death. It is a "Wednesday." Full moon.

The same day as PPTSS2 7 (9-21). Doc Ock issues his demand for the safe return of the Palestinian foreign minister: the
unmasking of Spider-Man at "11:58 AM Eastern Standard Time on Saturday" - an indication that this story occurs sometime
between the last Sunday in October and the last Sunday in April. Peter grapples with the ultimatum, to which he must decide an
answer "in the next day or so." Discussing the situation on TV are a number of pundits, including Reed Richards, who probably
appears here sometime before FF3 68, since his face is unscarred. Green grass and trees in Manhattan.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #51 (8-14)
The night of the day after BP3 51 (1-7). The caption, "day three of a five-day rip," should read "day four." Dressed as Panther,

response, Cole decides to walk away from the Black Panther identity, burning the costume in Dre's car, which had been re-ID'd

WEAPON X v2 #3 (1-9)
One day. Agent Zero is in New York, on the trail of Sabretooth, who has killed eight people there in the last "three weeks," so it
is likely at least three weeks after WX2 2 (18-21), during which time Aurora has been hospitalized for the injuries caused by

CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #22 (1-7)
One night, shortly after CA4 21 (7-21). Cap and Rebecca go to an exhibit opening at an art gallery. We see snow, bare trees,
and coats in New York. The narrative states that it's "December, 2003" and Rebecca wishes "Feliz Navidad" to Steve - these are
indications that this story occurs shortly before Christmas, and given the placement before A3 63, this must be the same
Christmas seen in IM3 62-63.

There she fends off an attack by Armajesuits. In her hotel room, she meets with Jonathan about a mission in Somalia. There's a
link between her mother and something called Project Armageddon. She asks Nathan Summers for help, but he shrugs her off,
saying he has "too many other problems to deal with;" this segment may occur during the weeks between pages 20 and 21 of SX
12, while Nathan is grieving over the loss Magda. Jonathan is attacked and killed by the Armajesuits. Full moon.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #22 (8-21)
The day after CA4 22 (1-7). This story must occur before A3 63 - when Cap gets a call from Rebecca, he pretends it's a priority
call for the Avengers and suggests that Thor handle the situation, but mentioning Thor would not make for a credible alibi after
the thunder god's very public falling out with the Avengers in A3 63. At Camp Hasmat in Guantanamo Bay, Cap gets into an
argument with Colonel Boyle over the treatment of prisoners at the camp. After Cap meets Senator Paley, the camp is attacked
and General Oliver is found strung up with barbed wire. Prior to this, Cap tells Oliver that they met "at the 9-11 memorial at the
Pentagon last year." Full moon.

The same night as CA4 22 (8-21). Fourteen detainees escape from Camp Hasmat, including Hedayat. The narrative notes that
it's "December, 2003," with the year, of course, being topical.

INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #45 (9-10)
The same day as H3 46-FB (14:2). Banner wakes up again at Laurie's, where the rent isn't due for another week; I'm
hypothesizing that her rent is due at the end of each month. It must be three weeks before H3 45 (12-18). Laurie tells Banner
that she's going to Kansas City to see her sick mother.
SHE-HULK v3 #6 - FB (17:8)
One day. "Santa" gives the Awesome Android a present at a GLK&H office Christmas party.
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/3 - FB - FB (3:2)
One day. As she does "every year," Sue Richards attends a "holiday party" for Blue House, a shelter for women and children in
trouble. We see a Christmas tree and someone dressed as Santa. As usual, the media is covering the event; Sue's use of her
celebrity to call attention to Blue House may mean that this story occurs before FF3 68, the story that leads to the FF's decline in
IRON MAN v3 #62
One night during the Christmas season; we see holiday shopping, a store Santa, Christmas trees, an office holiday party, and
IRON MAN v3 #63

weapons in "eight minutes."

The same day as CA4 24 (10-21). It is "a few days" before CA4 25 (6-13). SHIELD neutralizes the bio-weapon and the Cuban
operatives deliver the neutralized bomb to Castro. It is "December, 2003," although the year must be topical.

(although the year must be topical) in Havana with Rebecca, the Cuban operatives, and Senator Paley, who asks Steve to be his
running mate in a presidential bid "in '04" (topical year). According to my calculations, it is now the end of the year after the
last presidential election, in which Robert Kelly ran (see X 108); Paley may be making plans very early. Steve declines the offer.
We see fireworks.
