INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #46 - FB (14:3)
One day. Banner is in a near-coma state at Laurie's apartment.
Thursday, January 2
BLACK PANTHER v3 #59
One snowy day in New York, "a month" after BP3 50 (1-10) - which means that Gwen must be seven months pregnant and that
this issue occurs less than two months before CREW 2. Kasper Cole, T'Challa, Falcon, and Captain America attend Tork's
funeral, so it is probably several days after BP3 56 (17-21). After Falcon lectures Cole, they both go on a mission to find Sal
Anthony's son. After coming up empty, Cole tells the Panther he wants the Rite of Ascension.
Friday, January 3
WEAPON X v2 #5 (1-6)
One night. Weapon X invades Billy Taylor's house and takes him and his mutant family.
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (1-3)

Corporation and his associate in a Sunset Boulevard strip club.
Saturday, January 4
WEAPON X v2 #5 (7-18)
The day after WX2 5 (1-6). "Hours" after WX2 5 (1-6), in the early morning hours, Billy Taylor and his family, along with
Maggott, arrive at Neverland, where we see snow and cold weather. They encounter Leech and Cecilia Reyes, then Maggott is
exterminated. "The next day" (technically the same day), Billy's dad confronts Colcord and pays the price. It is "weeks" before
WX2 5 (19-20).
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (4)
The day after ELEK2 24-FB (1-3). Elektra gets on a plane to New York.
Sunday, January 5

One day. Russian authorities inject Chechen rebels with the Barbarosa virus, which kills the rebels instantly.
Tuesday, January 7

One day. At Laurie's place, Sandra Verdugo gives Banner a transfusion of her blood to keep him alive.
Thursday, January 9
SOLDIER X #12 (21-22)
One day. I propose that it is six weeks, not "six months," after SX 12 (18-20). This segment must occur after DOM2 4 and
before WX 6 (18-23). Nathan is in a house in snowy Juneau when he gets a call from Domino about the Weapon X program. He
says he'll rendezvous with Domino in "twelve hours."
Friday, January 10

Sunday, January 12
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #5
One day, "one month" after CM6 4. Captain Marvel returns to life and Entropy convinces him to help him destroy his father,
Eternity. They succeed and all creation, save for Marv, Rick Jones, Epiphany, and Entropy, ends. For Genis, it is "one month"
before CM6 6, but for the rest of the universe CM6 6 may occur just moments after this. It is "after Labor Day."
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #6
One day. For Genis, it is "one month" after CM6 5, during which time all creation has not existed. Captain Marvel assists
Entropy in recreating the universe and may arrange the space/time continuum so that mere moments may have passed for the
universe since CM6 5. Then Marv relaunches the events of CM6 1 and goes insane again. As explained in CM6 18, the
reconstruction of the universe causes rips in the space/time continuum that cause the Absorbing Man to be in two places at once
- with one Creel helping Thor in T2 55-56 and the other imprisoned in H2 55-59.
Monday, January 13
X-MEN UNLIMITED #38 (1-10)
One day, "a year to the day" after Colossus' death in UX 390. Kitty Pryde attends class at the University of Chicago, so it must
be a weekday during the college year. She thinks she sees Peter Rasputin. We see blowing leaves and coat and scarf weather in
Chicago, but the green trees must be topical.
Tuesday, January 14
X-MEN UNLIMITED #38 (11-18)
The day after XU 38 (1-10). It is "maybe three, four months" before W3 6. Kitty blows off her classes looking for the man she
thinks is Peter, so it is another weekday during the college year. After seeing "Peter" again, Kitty goes home to find
Nightcrawler there. Again, we see blowing leaves and coat and scarf weather in Chicago, but the green trees must be topical.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #1 - FB (4-5)
One day, "when school started this year," but at least a week into the semester as there is a reference to school "last week." After
getting busted for a school prank, Gennady Gavrilov is assigned a vocational training project. Snow in Moscow.
Wednesday, January 15
X-MEN UNLIMITED #38 (19-22)
The day after XU 38 (11-18). It is another day of classes at the University of Chicago. Kitty catches up with the cop who looks
like Peter. Lockheed hasn't made it back to Kitty yet. Again we see blowing leaves and coat and scarf weather in Chicago, but
the green trees must be topical.
THOR v2 #53
One day, "a hundred days" after T2 51. All this time, Asgard has been floating over Manhattan, and the reaction of Thor's
teammates in the Avengers is not seen until A3 63 - a clue that suggests that the Asgard-over-Manhattan storyline occurs after
Thursday, January 16
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #47 - FB (14:4)
One day. In bed with the unconscious Banner, Verdugo makes fake ID cards for Banner and herself.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #45 (12)
The same day as H3 47-FB (14:4). Banner awakens at "6:18" and sees the desiccating Verdugo in his bed and screams (then
may pass out again off panel).
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #47 - FB (14:5)
The same day as H3 45 (12). Verdugo drags herself out of the bed and heads to the closet to hide.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #45 (13-15)
The same day as H3 47-FB (14:5). It must be three weeks after H3 45 (9-10), since Laurie's rent is now "two weeks overdue."
Laurie's landlady and the cops she called encounter Banner alone in Laurie's apartment then see blood coming from the closet.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #47 - FB (14:6)
The same day as H3 45 (13-15). The cops and the landlady find Verdugo's desiccated body in the closet.

Banner as a Mr. Copeland of Topeka.
Friday, January 17
THOR v2 #54
One day, shortly after T2 53. The green grass and trees in Manhattan may be topical.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #7 - FB (2-7)
One day, "one year" before CA5 7 (20:1-20:2). This segment probably occurs after GK 5 (1-12). At Greendale Medical
Research Clinic, Jane Foster tells Jack Monroe that he's terminally ill and that his last months will be marked by physical and
mental degradation. We see green trees and short sleeves in New York City.
Saturday, January 18
WEAPON X v2 #5 (19-20:2)
One day, "weeks" after WX2 5 (7-18). Cecilia Reyes tends to the sick prisoners at Neverland, and Wilside and Reaper give
themselves over to the Weapon X program. It is "days" before WX2 5 (20-21).
Sunday, January 19
THOR v2 #55
One day. According to CM6 18, this story with the Absorbing Man occurs after CM6 6. The green trees in New York may be
Monday, January 20: Martin Luther King Day
BLACK PANTHER v3 #60 (1-10)
One day, shortly after BP3 59. It is presumably "years" after BP3 24 (13-22), but it is probably not that long; it is possible that
it's been "months" since scientists noted decent brain activity from Killmonger. On his day off from police work, Kasper Cole is
introduced to the rigors of the Rite of Ascension and is determined to move forward with the ritual. Killmonger wakes up from
his coma. There is no visible snow in New York.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #1 - FB (6-7)
One day, shortly after CD 1-FB (4-5). Gennady begins his vocational training as courier of documents from Moscow State
University. He works his way through the "A"s. Falling snow and coat weather in Moscow.

rightful place on the Wakandan Tribal Council. Apparently, Cole has another day off from the force here. It is "three days"
before BP3 61 (1-19).

One day, "days" after WX2 5 (19-20). Billy Taylor's mother arranges for Billy and his sister to be taken from Neverland by Dr.
THOR v2 #56
One day, long enough after T2 55 for Creel to be "grabbin' bad guys right and left" for Thor. During this time, as explained in
CM6 18, the Absorbing Man appears in different places at the same time - in T2 55-56 and in H3 55-59 - as a result of Captain
Marvel's rebuilding of the universe in CM6 6. Green trees in Ohio.
Wednesday, January 22
WEAPON X v2 #5 (22)

Neverland, where we see snow.

Thursday, January 23
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #47 - FB (15:4-15:5)
One day, "an hour" before H3 46. Verdugo awakens on a table in the morgue and causes the attendant to faint. She slits his
wrist to drain off some of his essence and makes it look like the attendant's failed suicide attempt.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #45 (19-22)
The same day as H3 47-FB (15). It is "a little over a month" after H3 45-FB (5). Banner's hair has grown back out after having
been shaved in H3 34 (1-11). Banner awakens in the hospital, where the local sheriff believes he is Mr. Copeland and has killed
his sister (based on blood work done on Verdugo's body). The sheriff and a nurse are killed by Agent Pratt.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #46
The same day as H3 45 (19-22). It cannot be "a little less than 3 weeks" after H3 45-FB (5), given that H3 45 (19-22) is a little
over a month after that scene. Pratt takes Banner out of the hospital and they go to the local morgue, where Pratt gets into a
firefight with cops. Verdugo catches up with Banner here. Green leafy trees in Colorado.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #47
The same day as H3 46. Verdugo drives Banner from the scene and tells her recent story. Pratt pursues them. Green grass and
trees in Colorado. Full moon.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #48
The same rainy night as H3 47. Verdugo and Banner (now with the strength of Hulk) battle a Hulked-up Pratt. Green grass and
trees in Colorado.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #49

affection of Aurora. Nathan Summers gathers support for a "revolution" against Weapon X and Neverland.
THOR v2 #57
One day, shortly after T2 57-FB.
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (5-6)
One night. Elektra turns up in Manhattan and kills Stuart Prebble's guards, but Prebble slips away. In ELEK2 23, Prebble says
that "in six days I went through fourteen hired hoods," and then goes on to describe this scene - thus Elektra has been pursuing
him for at least six days by this point. Prebble suggests that only after this point did he flee Manhattan, so it may be six or seven
days after ELEK2 24-FB (4), possible longer depending on how long Elektra spent preparing. In ELEK2 23, Prebble also says
that Elektra has driven him to his current condition "in the space of two and a half weeks," which would suggest that this
segment must occur a week and a half before ELEK2 23.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #61 (1-19)
One night, "three days" after BP3 60 (11-21). Cole's mother hasn't seen him in "five days." Cole quits the Rite of Ascension
and accepts Killmonger's offer to become his White Tiger in return for a synthetic herb that will give him power to take on the
66 Bridges Gang. Green trees in Manhattan. We may see a full moon in one panel.
Saturday, January 25
BLACK PANTHER v3 #61 (20-21)
The morning after BP3 61 (1-19). Cole discovers the herb has rendered him blind.
BLACK PANTHER v3 #62
The same day as BP3 61 (20-21). It is "two years" after BP3 1, and thus about a year after BP3 34. Cole's blindness lifts and he
develops heightened senses, which he uses to track Sal Anthony's son to Chicago, with the help of Everett Ross and Queen
Divine Justice. There, they discover that Tork is alive, that he and T'Challa busted up the 66 Bridges Gang, and that Cole's
situation was set up by T'Challa. Cole passes the ascension rite and is given the costume and identity of the new White Tiger,
and T'Challa resumes his Black Panther role, so this story must occur before A3 65 and CREW 1 (16-20).
Sunday, January 26
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (7-11)
One day. Elektra shows up at Prebble's mansion in the Hamptons and kills more of his guards. Prebble slips away again.
THOR v2 #58
One day, after IM3 63. Considering the negative impact of this story on Thor's relationship to Cap, this issue likely occurs after
Thor aids Cap in CA4 11. Long enough after T2 57 for Thor to recover. It's been "too long" since Thor and Iron Man were last
together, probably in M/HOL'04 1, if not M/DS 2/2. Iron Man seems to have a problem with Thor taking out the Slokovian
dictator here, but apparently this kind of action wasn't a problem for him previously in A3 59; perhaps the difference is that the
Avengers had international sanction to take action but Thor does not. Bare trees and coats in Slokovia.
IRON MAN v3 #64
The same day as T2 58. Iron Man faces off against Thor. The green grass and trees in eastern Europe may be topical.
AVENGERS v3 #63
The same day as IM3 64. Cap puts an end to the Thor-Iron Man battle and diffuses the Slokovia incident, only to have Dr.
Doom annex the country. Thor leaves the Avengers in shame. Ant-Man appears here in the old costume used before ALIAS 24
(1-16). Doom must appear here before FF3 67. Cap must appear here after CA4 23, given the alibi involving Thor that he gives
in CA4 22 (8-21).
Monday, January 27
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #61 - FB
One day. In a videotaped test of Operation: Krill, the Krill tear a man apart.
Tuesday, January 28

One day. Disguised as a tourist, Elektra cases the security at Prebble's latest house in Provence, where he must have just arrived.
That night, Elektra storms the building and kills all the guards, and Prebble flees yet again.
THOR v2 #60
On a snowy day in New York City, Jake Olson amputates the leg of the son of a Thor worshiper trapped in the wreckage of an
accident, then Sif arrives to take the boy to be healed. Thor comes to terms with the Odin Force, then Jake watches a
transmission from a Thor critic that contains a warning.
Wednesday, January 29
THOR v2 #61
Probably the day after T2 60. Jake gets suspended and confronts Thor about his recent actions. The Council Elite refuse Thor
admission to its ranks and chide him for his direct involvement in earthly affairs. We see green grass and trees in Manhattan,
which are inconsistent with the snow of T2 60. We also see long sleeves and jackets, but no coats.
Thursday, January 30
THOR v2 #62
A school day. Tensions rise as Thorists demand Thursdays off, a Thor follower kills a man for expressing his fears about Thor's
influence, and a reporter dies in Asgard after drinking an elixir meant for Asgardians. At 6 AM, a radio announcer states that it is
"thirty-eight degrees and sunny in the Big Apple today...Spring isn't here yet, but it's right around the corner." We see green
trees in Manhattan and in floating Asgard.
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (18:2)
One day. Prebble runs away as Elektra stands over dead guards in a snowbound landscape, presumably at Prebble's schloss in
Friday, January 31
THOR v2 #63 (1-6)

see green grass and trees and a mix of short-sleeve shirts and jackets in Maine, where it is lobster season.
PUNISHER v7 #27 - FB
One day, "two years" before PUN7 27 (9-22). Tiberiu and Cristu wipe out a village and take the girls with them.
Saturday, February 1
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (18:3)
One day. Prebble finds his guards killed, presumably at his house in St. Lucia.
Sunday, February 2
WOLVERINE v2 #188
A "Sunday." Detective Lester Brown is having a tough time investigating fellow cop Scott McLawry, who admits to Brown that
he has murdered innocents, not knowing that Logan is listening.
THOR v2 #63 (7-9)
We see a Catholic mass, so it is likely the Sunday following T2 63 (1-6). Lars notes a conversation about "the eternal failings of
the Red Sox," but it's not necessarily an indication that baseball season is actually underway. Green grass and trees in Maine.
Monday, February 3
CREW #1 (1-7)
Early "Monday" morning, Jim Rhodes' sister Jeanette is thrown from the roof of a Brooklyn building by Joop and Marcus. That
evening in Oakland, Jim receives a call from Brooklyn police officer Marcy Howard that his sister was killed.
THOR v2 #63 (10-12)
Probably the day after T2 63 (7-9). Lars has a bad day lobstering.
WOLVERINE v2 #189
The day after W2 188. This issue occurs before W3 1 (1-3). Logan confronts McLawry and gets him to locate the bodies of his
victims, then Logan provides Brown with the information to make the collar. Green grass and trees. Full moon.
ELEKTRA v2 #24 - FB (18:4)
One night. Prebble runs from the corpses of his guards, presumably at his villa on the Cinque Terre.
Tuesday, February 4
THOR v2 #63 (13-15)
Probably the day after T2 63 (10-12). Lars gets turned down for a loan. We see green grass and trees in Maine.
CREW #1 (8-15)
The day after CREW 1 (1-7). On a "Tuesday evening," Rhodes identifies Jeanette's body. He goes to Little Mogadishu to
investigate her death. He learns that Jeanette was a crack whore, and recovers her possessions. He gets into a fight with a local
gang. He is interrupted by Josiah X, a local missionary.
Wednesday, February 5
CREW #1 (16-20)
The day after CREW 1 (8-15). Early "Wednesday" morning, Josiah X takes Rhodes back to his mission, where they talk. At
dawn (erroneously noted as "twilight") at Brooklyn College, they hack into government surveillance satellites and obtain footage
which shows who killed Jeanette. That morning, Jim takes the evidence to Marcy, but it's rejected and Jim stalks off. That
evening, Kasper Cole (appearing here sometime after BP3 62) and his crew find Joop and Marcus tied up, with traffic
surveillance photos nearby showing them running red lights. This provides an excuse for Kasper to arrest them both.
THOR v2 #63 (16-20)
Perhaps the day after T2 63 (13-15). Thor saves Lars from an attempted suicide attempt out on the stormy sea and restores the
lobster fishery to Maine.

CREW #3 (1-5:4)
On a "Wednesday afternoon on Riverside Drive," Danny Vincent (Junta) is out of favor with the intelligence services and has
been reduced to gathering evidence for high-value divorces. Posing as an optometrist, he delays a patient and steals his car. He
and his men then search the car for evidence that Winter has been having an affair with his secretary.
The same day as CREW 3 (1-5). Gwen is still pregnant, so this story must occur less than three months after BP3 51 (15-21) and
less than two months after BP3 59. On a "Wednesday evening," Kasper returns to the Mog as White Tiger. He plans to capture
more criminals and then return as Kasper to arrest them, thus increasing his chances of promotion and a pay rise. He abducts a
man named Spike, who is a low-end mule for local drug-lord Rain Man. The White Tiger knocks Spike out and locks him in the
trunk of a car. While Spike is out, the White Tiger visits Josiah X and asks why Jim Rhodes is still hanging around in the Mog.
Meanwhile, Jim Rhodes goes underground and derails the "money train," an underground train which carries the pay-offs from
66 Bridges to corrupt officials. The Tiger's interrogation of Spike is interrupted by Rain Man and his henchmen. The Tiger
beats them all into unconsciousness and leaves a forged confession intended to provide him, as Kasper, with justification for an
arrest. Unfortunately for Kasper, he hears sirens and heads away, assuming that somebody else will get the arrest. Kasper
returns to Harlem, where his mother and girlfriend Gwen are still arguing. Cole phones Daz to find out who got the credit for
Rain Man, only to learn that everyone in the area is dealing with the underground derailment. As the White Tiger, Kasper returns
to the Mog and beats up Rain Man. Rain Man bargains his way out of the situation by telling Kasper that the derailed train is 66
Bridges' money train. White Tiger heads underground, and finds the atmosphere uncomfortable because he is still adjusting to
his enhanced senses. He is the first to reach the derailed train and considers arresting the corrupt cops who were on board.
However, Kasper realizes that if he arrests other cops, he will be transferred to Internal Affairs. On principle, he refuses to do
that, and lets the cops go. The Tiger then detects Jim Rhodes' scent and decides to leave. However, he is then caught up in a
firefight and tries to protect the police in the crossfire.
CREW #3 (5:5-14)
The same day as CREW 2, a night when David Letterman is on TV. Danny is in the course of double-crossing his divorce client
when an underground contact tells him about the derailed train and asks him to retrieve a box from the train, on behalf of 66

mission. Green grass and trees in Brooklyn.

CREW #3 (15-21)
The early morning after CREW 3 (5-14). Danny enters the tunnels and promptly blunders into the firefight between the White
Tiger and the criminals. The Tiger attacks Danny and they fight. Both are knocked out by Jim Rhodes (apparently wearing War
Machine armor incorporated into a SWAT uniform). When Danny regains consciousness, he finds that Jim has tied him to the
unconscious White Tiger and is leaving them to the mercy of the police.
The same day as CREW 3 (15-21) - a "Thursday." The cops have secured the money train and are making their way towards the
White Tiger and Danny. The White Tiger uses his claws to cut Danny's handcuffs. Danny promptly betrays him and makes a
break for it. The Tiger manages to free himself anyway, and escapes. He catches up with Jim Rhodes, who is still leaving the
tunnels. Jim addresses the Tiger as "Kasper" and leads him out of the tunnels. On the surface, Jim explains that he has disabled
the belt which controls Danny's gravity powers. Therefore, Danny will come to find them (otherwise, he will die in fifteen
minutes). It's now dawn; on Jim's instructions, the Tiger changes back into civilian gear. They both go to the Shabazz Mission,
and Josiah X is also present. Danny attacks and is quickly subdued. Jim has Josiah X get everyone else to safety while he deals
with Danny. Jim and Danny are left alone in the Mission. Jim reactivates Danny's belt. Danny asks Jim what he planted on the
train and how it would avenge his sister's death; Jim declines to answer. Jim offers to get Danny back into work with the
government. After Jim and Danny leave, and Jim casually reveals Kasper's name to Danny, Josiah X reprimands Jim for
endangering innocents and tells him to stay away. Kasper returns home and watches Gwen sleeping. Danny turns up, hovering
against the ceiling, and taunts Kasper. He escapes through the window while Kasper is fending off more complaints from Gwen
and his mother. As the White Tiger, Kasper pursued Danny over the rooftops. Danny tells the White Tiger that he believes Jim
Rhodes planted a tracer on the train. Danny proposes that he and the White Tiger try to get in on Jim's plan to bring down 66
Bridges, for their own career interests. The White Tiger tells Danny not to come near his family again, and then leaves. Danny's
theory is that Jim Rhodes placed a gel which leaves a residue on your hands if you touch the cash or dope from the money train.
Then he can track all the people involved in 66 Bridges' network and use that information to bring down the whole syndicate.
While Danny is explaining this to us, we see Jim Rhodes watching Josiah X through binoculars. Josiah drives home to his gated
community and talks about his day with his girlfriend Irenia. Josiah takes off his shirt, revealing his modified Captain America
costume beneath. Green grass and trees.

Pamela Grayson, a woman who works at a nearby facility where Crusher Creel is imprisoned in a plasma cell. The Absorbing
Man (presumably one from an alternate reality, here in the mainstream MU because of the events of CM6 6) absorbs the minds of
workers at the facility. Creel is supposed to have been in the plasma cell for "months" (according to H3 57); this doesn't

causes Pat to consider being more flexible with his newfound gift. Pat seeks out Cletus Kasady using Toxin's sense of
connection to it. Toxin and Carnage fight again and Pat, as Toxin, is unable to kill Carnage in cold blood. Pat worries that

Upon returning home, a finger from one of the old corpses smashed up that day ends up in baby Edward's clutches, freaking out Pat, who feels he's defiled his perfect home with it. He realizes it's the monster in himself that he fears most, and after chucking the finger in the river, leaves his wife and newborn child without giving any clear reason. He plans on modeling himself after Spidey and plans to learn to control what he has inside him. Leafy trees.
WOLVERINE v3 #6
One day, "three days" after W3 5 (1-21). Nightcrawler mentions to Logan that he saw Kitty "maybe three, four months ago," in
XU 38 (11-18), and the way he's speaking suggests that he saw Kitty more recently than Logan; Kurt's reference must be
inaccurate if it's just a couple of months after December, as noted in W3 2 - I have it being six weeks since XU 38 (11-18). It is
"six months" before W3 9, and so probably not "two months" or "a couple of months" before W3 7.
GHOST RIDER v5 #6 - FB (5-9)
One day, "a long time" before GR5 6. This flashback occurs after GR3 6 (6-22). Johnny is picked up outside Lynchburg,
Tennessee by Sheriff Arvis and thrown in jail with a man named Clay. Someone killed a local bartender, and all the
"undesirables" are being rounded up to find someone to pin it on. Johnny's not especially concerned, having tamed his inner
demons. Brownish, dying leaves on trees.
CREW #7 (1-19)
One "Friday evening," White Tiger, Josiah X and Junta attack Triage's office. They have "spent the evening coercing crooked
politicians to turn state's evidence." Jim Rhodes guides them by radio. Triage is actually out of the office monitoring by video
link from his car. He blows up the building, but the three attackers escape. Jim attacks the car and smashes it with the glove of
his War Machine armor. Jim is joined by the other three, and together they confront Triage. A 66 Bridges helicopter appears
and attacks. Danny and the White Tiger bring it down. Meanwhile, Josiah X saves bystanders. Triage stabs Jim Rhodes and
makes a break for it. The Tiger remains behind to save Jim. Danny captures Triage, but rather than making a deal with him, he
turns in Triage after all. The police turn up to deal with the aftermath.
Saturday, March 1
GHOST RIDER v5 #6 - FB (16-22)
The morning after GR5 6-FB (5-9). Johnny is freed on bail. He joins Clay in his limo and meets with Bedelstraum, the lawyer.
A deal is made to have Johnny provide an alibi for Clay in exchange for the lawyer's services. He learns that Clay is actually
richer than he looks, as the limo is his. He holds a high position with the Hell's Angels.
GHOST RIDER v5 #7 - FB (3-8)
The same day as GR5 6-FB (16-22). Arvis informs the District Attorney, James Strahorn, that Johnny and Clay were bailed out
by his old enemy, Bedelstraum. Annoyed, Strahorn urges Arvis to pressure Blaze until he does something stupid they can hold
him for. Elsewhere in Lynchburg, Johnny hangs out at a local garage tuning up some motorcycles. Clay owns all the bikes there,
and with Johnny's custom cycle in the impound lot, he's given his pick of any one to join Clay in taking a ride. Arvis trails the
pair as they ride around. Clay pulls a gun and prepares to shoot when Arvis smashes into both of them. The handgun ends up
near Johnny, and as it's unlicensed, Arvis is able to arrest Blaze again.
GHOST RIDER v5 #7 - FB (14-22)
The same day as GR5 7-FB (3-8). Bedelstraum bails Johnny out again. Arvis breaks the news to Strahorn, who's furious to lose
him again, but as the sheriff explains, Johnny didn't threaten him or do anything to be held. Strahorn prays, hoping his rivals
don't know how to push Johnny's buttons either. Clay joins Johnny and Bedelstraum in the lawyer's limo, and it's revealed that
the handgun was the one used to kill that fat barkeep. Bedelstraum and Clay set Blaze up, and now egg him on, urging him to
out vengeance. Johnny starts to turn into Ghost Rider, and Clay shoots him in the face. Blaze plummets through a dark void on
fire, and by the time he reaches the bottom, he's completed the change to Ghost Rider, damning both himself and his alter-ego.
Satan awaits him amid fiery building ruins, informing him it's time to pay up. Back on Earth, Clay shoots and kills himself.
Bedelstraum, confirming he was working for Satan, gets a call from Strahorn and goes to the Moore County courthouse.
Strahorn and the people for whom he works are prepared to offer a deal. Their shadows reveal Bedelstraum as a horned demon
and Strahorn as an angel.

placement). In Princeton Walk, Josiah X wonders what he will do next, and talks with Faith Bradley. In Cypress Hills, Jim has

trees in Cypress Hills.

Monday, March 3
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #54 (21-22)

the money he got from Forelli.
SPIDER-MAN & WOLVERINE #4 - FB - FB (6)
One day. Scientist Edward Brecker sells the military on the Stuff of Legends program. Brecker is clearly an older man, so this
segment must occur about 50 years after his boyhood encounter with Thor in SM&W 4-FB-FB (2-3), thus placing that flashback
before JIM 83.
X-MEN v2 #201 - FB (5:2)
One day. According to a Neverland file, it is "day 607," so it is 25 days after X 201-FB (4-5) and 34 days before X 201-FB (5:3). Rotting cadavers are removed at Neverland.
Tuesday, March 4
One day, sometime after END 6. Warlock finds Thanos, who faked his death and has decided that in order to achieve inner
tranquility, he must make amends for his past misdeeds, one of which was the destruction of the original Rigellain homeworld.
Thanos and Warlock head to New Rigel-3, where the Rigellians attack Thanos on sight, but Thanos tells the Rigellians that he is
putting himself at their service. Meanwhile, Hunger wakes.
The same day as THANOS 2. It is "months" after THANOS 3-FB. The Rigellians put Thanos in jail and he remains there
voluntarily. Rigellian general Zygo believes that the idea of taking up Thanos' offer is insane and tries to stage a military coup.
Thanos and Warlock defeat Zygo. The Grand Commissioner takes Thanos up on his offer, and asks him to deal with a crisis on
Rigel-18. Thanos, Warlock, a Recorder and the Commissioner teleport there, where Galactus showed up "three days ago," but
has not eaten the planet yet and is behaving strangely. Thanos agrees to stop Galactus. Hunger watches from another reality.
Wednesday, March 5
Perhaps the day after THANOS 2. Thanos has been joined aboard his ship by Moondragon (who must appear here before CM6
19). He uses her telepathy to make contact with Galactus. Although distrustful, Galactus agrees to meet with Thanos on the
astral plane. There, Thanos questions Galactus about his actions, but gets nowhere. Then he tries a mental attack, but is easily
rebuffed. The delay at least enables the Rigellians to finish evacuating the planet. Thanos decides that Moondragon is of no
further use to him and teleports her back to Earth, where she probably appears next in CM6 19. Pip arrives on the ship, having
planted various bugs on Galactus' ship while Galactus was distracted on the astral plane. Galactus then activates his equipment
and destroys Rigel-18's sun. He teleports into the supernova and heads for an inter-dimensional portal which has appeared
inside. He reaches in and pulls out what appears to be a human skeleton with another soul gem on its chest, then he returns to his
ship. Thanos is disappointed that he has failed to save Rigel-18. However, he is determined to investigate the situation further.
Hunger continues to watch.
The same day as THANOS 3. While Warlock and Pip discuss Warlock's recent activities, Thanos hacks into Galactus' computer
and works out that somebody is manipulating Galactus. Galactus' Punisher cyborgs attack the ship and steal Warlock's soul
gem. They teleport away with it, leaving the ship primed to explode. Pip, Thanos, and Warlock all escape and meet up at a
rendezvous point on a barren world. Meanwhile, Galactus completes his gem collection and connects them to a machine called
the Focusing Crux. Thanks to Hunger's manipulations, Galactus believes that he can use the Crux to feed off the Soul Gems.
The same day as THANOS 4. Thanos and Pip teleport aboard Galactus' ship. Galactus switches on the Crux. Thanos tries to
warn Galactus that he has been tricked, but Galactus doesn't believe him. The Crux opens a portal and Hunger emerges and
seizes control of the ship. Galactus and Thanos join forces to fight Hunger. Using explosives planted by Pip, Thanos blows up
Galactus' ship, hoping to stop the Crux. It doesn't work. Hunger continues to enter the Marvel Universe, planning to eat it.
The same day as THANOS 5. It is "months" before THANOS 7. Everyone lands on Rigel-18. Thanos retrieves Warlock's Soul
Gem from the Crux. Then he uses the Rigellians' planetary defense system to pull the ruined Rigellian homeworld towards it.
He plans to collide the planets and destroy Hunger. Thanos and Pip teleport away, leaving Galactus behind. Galactus and
Hunger are both caught in the explosion and the portal is closed. Thanos and Pip retreat to another of Thanos' ships. Thanos
asserts that the other Infinity Gems will be flung "to far distant corners of the heavens." Thanos gives Pip the Soul Gem to pass
on to Warlock and then heads back to the wreckage of Rigel-18 and finds Galactus barely alive. Thanos encourages Galactus to
continue seeking a cure for his hunger then returns to his ship, leaving Galactus to recover and reflect on events. Nobody notices
a splinter of Hunger on Galactus' glove, which flies off into space. Some time later, Warlock visits Thanos in his ship. Thanos
announces that the Rigellians have declared his debt discharged and have urged him to leave. Warlock returns to Gamora.

Piaka Loio ("Bloody Prophet"), who claims to be the reincarnation of Bara, the ancient god of death. Nobody has actually seen
him. Elektra is to kill him. All of this, of course, is unofficial. Elsewhere on the islands, Bara cultists led by General Selvi
attack and "liberate" a farm, slaughtering everyone present. Selvi awards the farm to one of the cultist soldiers, Tika. The cultist
soldiers return to their camp. There, the cultists discuss when they are to move on the capital, Naou City. One cultist decides to

The same night as H3 73 (1-4). Banner spies on Stark resetting the computer to up the test tonnage then secretly replaces the
gamma radiation in the second test bomb with RG27.
X-TREME X-MEN #20 (1-15)
One day. Bishop and Sage have returned from California to rejoin Storm and Logan in New Orleans, where Logan oversees her
(resumed) rehabilitation. Logan tells Storm that "nature has its own pace" (a lesson they've both learned now) and remarks that
she's doing "better than expected, nowhere as good as she wants." Storm also bemoans the fact that the rehab for her injury in
XX 18 is taking "so long." Sage refers to the events of X 115 as having occurred "recently." She also references the mutants
they met in XXX 1 (8-13), which may not have been very recent, given her comment, "Remember California?" Bishop talks of
rejoining Xavier's band of X-Men, and Ororo may not have shared with him her encounter with Archangel in XXX 2 (19-22).
Bishop and Sage then investigate some murders on a night with a full moon.
ELEKTRA v2 #29 (12-22)
The day after ELEK2 29 (1-11). The king's daughter is being driven to the airport (which we were told would happen "first
thing tomorrow" when Elektra was being briefed). Cultist soldiers attack and kidnap her. They take her back to the base. Now
that the heir to throne has been captured, Selvi is confident that the government will not move against them, and that they can
move on the capital. Selvi and the Piako Loio addresses the men. They will march on the capital tomorrow. Orat tries to rape
the princess, but Elektra appears and kills him.
ELEKTRA v2 #30
The same day as ELEK2 29 (12-22). A bunch of bit-part characters wander around talking about local mythology and the
prospects of success. Meanwhile, Elektra plants a whole load of bombs, and then makes her way to the Piako Loio's hut, where
she finds that he's a child. Full moon.
ELEKTRA v2 #31 (1-3)
The same night as ELEK2 30. Elektra is not prepared to kill a child, and leaves the camp. She considers this to be an ethical
dilemma: she does not want to kill a child, but she does not want to renege on her assignment now that she has accepted it.
Tuesday, March 25
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (21:3-21:4)
Probably the morning after XX 23 (1-16). In Paris, Cannonball and Lila have breakfast and read an on-line news item about the
events of XX 20-22.
ELEKTRA v2 #31 - FB
The early morning after ELEK2 31 (1-3). Elektra wakes elderly cultists Merak and tells him that the Piako Loio no longer speaks
for Bara. As Elektra plans, the superstitious Merak believes that he is experiencing a vision.
ELEKTRA v2 #31 (4-17)
The same day as ELEK2 31-FB. Elektra's bombs have destroyed most of the cultists equipment. Selvi thinks that his plans have
been destroyed, and wants to abandon the offence. But the Piako Loio insists that they proceed, as he has faith in his religious
destiny. Selvi is outraged - in fact, the Piako Loio is just a stooge who he has put up to gain political power for himself. When
Selvi confronts the Piako Loio, the other cultists consider him a traitor, and kill him. The cultists march towards the city and
camp for the night. Elektra attacks at night and slaughters all of the Piako Loio's guards. As they hear the screams, the other
cultists listen to Merak's story. The army loses its faith and disbands. Full moon.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #55 (7:4-22)
The day after ASM2 55 (1-7). Spider-Man subdues a group of thugs who rob Melissa's apartment, and Peter finds out that
Spider-Man nabbed Melissa's brother "a few months ago," in ASM2 56-FB (17:5). Ezekiel returns "quite a long time" after
ASM2 49 (1-8). It is a school day, as is the day after this one. "Eight nights" separate this segment from ASM2 56 (1-19). It is
cold enough for heat to be on inside, but not cold enough for coats. Full moon.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #9 (1-8)
On "Tuesday the 9th" (of which the date but not the day of the week may be topical), Rick Jones watches as mass murderer Karl
Coven is executed and comes back to life.
X-TREME X-MEN #20 (16-22)
The day after XX 20 (1-15). Bishop and Sage go to Xavier's, where they encounter Emma Frost and the mutant responsible for
the murders. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
X-TREME X-MEN #21
The same day as XX 20 (16-22). Bishop and Sage are teleported away from Xavier's while Emma Frost tries to deal with
Garrett, who she's harboring while Professor X is away from the mansion, perhaps on his way back from his appearance in Los
Angeles in XS 8 (1-6). Storm tries to reason with Emma from New Orleans, where we see Logan starting to grow another
goatee. The weather at Xavier's is so cold that a lake on the grounds is iced over; this is inconsistent with the green grass and
trees seen in XX 20 (16-22).
X-TREME X-MEN #22
The same night as XX 21. Although a student at Xavier's refers to the events of XX 20 (16-22) as "the other day," it must have
actually been earlier this day. Bishop and Sage storm the Xavier Institute, forcing Storm, despite her less-than-full recovery, to
fly from New Orleans to New York, where she fights Emma. We see snow on the ground at Xavier's, even before Storm's
arrival, and this is inconsistent with the green grass and trees seen not only in XX 20 but in this very issue. Perhaps it is the
beginning of spring and the different scenes co-exist.
X-TREME X-MEN #23 (1-16)
The same night as XX 22. The X-Men battle Elias Bogan in the Danger Room.
Wednesday, March 26
THUNDERBOLTS #79 (1-14)
One day. Trueno is interviewed on the radio at "12:28" on a "Wednesday morning." Cady trains Axum "two days" before the
world championship fight scheduled for "Friday night." The year "2002" on an Armadillo poster must be topical. That night,
still "Wednesday," Axum meets Trueno, who insists Axum quit his day job. Axum's mom has been giving him the silent
treatment for "two weeks."
X-TREME X-MEN #23 (17-22)
The morning after XX 23 (1-16). The X-Treme team disagree with Xavier's philosophy and leave Professor X, White Queen,
and Jean Grey at the Institute, where we see snow. Emma must appear here before her "murder" in X 139 (21-22).
ELEKTRA v2 #31 (18-22)
The day after ELEK2 31 (4-17). Elektra finds the Piako Loio, still at the site of the battle. He is determined to get revenge, but
Elektra is confident that she has achieved her job - she has destroyed the Piako Loio persona, so the insurrection is over. Elektra
returns to the capital city and assures the prime minister that the prophet is dead. Government soldiers pick up the Piako Loio.
They don't believe he's the real prophet, and tell him that he will be sent off to a state orphanage.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #73 (15-19)
One day, probably a couple of days after H3 73 (1-14). Stark works out while Banner and Rutledge perfect the armor. Rutledge
wants to test it. Green trees.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #9 (9-21)
Perhaps the day after CM6 9 (1-8). It is "three years" after an incident in which Rick Jones witnessed Karl Coven's murder of a
family. Coven is released from custody and goes after Rick. Marvel intervenes and makes Coven an offer. Full moon.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #10
The same night as CM6 9 (9-21). Rick recovers in the Microverse, where he discovers he's a rock idol. In New York, Marvel
and Coven run a sham trial involving Spider-Man and an alien couple.
Thursday, March 27
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #73 (20-22)
The "morning" after H3 73 (15-19). Stark, Banner, and Rutledge head to the armor unveiling while Richard escapes.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #74
The same day as H3 73 (20-22). The first test blast explodes and Iron Man gets gamma poisoning, which causes him to act
recklessly, forcing the Hulk to battle him. Richard forces Rutledge to detonate the second bomb, which, because of Banner's
switch, cures rather than destroys Stark. Rutledge confesses about Lisa's death. After the police mop-up, Banner leaves. Green
grass and trees.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #11
One day, shortly after CM6 10. Marvel plays adjudicator in the Microverse while Rick deals with Coven in California, where it
is warm enough for rooftop sunbathing.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #12
The same day as CM6 11. Rick tries to kill Coven, and Microverse and alien forces are out to kill Marvel. Marvel arranges for
the final death of Coven and points out Rick's hypocrisy in forcing a moral code on him.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #1 - FB (23:2)
One day. Since Ben Grimm is a civic leader here, this flashback probably occurs before FF3 68 (1:1), the start of the storyline
that leads to the FF's trouble in Latveria. Nero Rodriguez stands alongside Matt Murdock (no goatee), Foggy Nelson, the Thing,
and others as he is presented a medal for civic service.
Friday, March 28
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #13 (1-13)
One day. Genis kills Burstaar, saving the life of the Magister of Ilera, whose forces occupy a planet they've freed from the
Badoon. Genis accepts the Magister's gratitude by taking his bed.
ELEKTRA v2 #32 (1-3)
One day. Elektra returns to New York from Naou after a twenty-hour flight following ELEK2 31 (18-22). It is "three days"
before ELEK2 34 (20-22). Elektra agrees to meet a client. She notes that she's "got the weekend free," so it's likely Friday.
ELEKTRA v2 #34 - FB (5:3-7:2)
The same afternoon as ELEK2 32 (1-3). Urishka Bezzubenkov hires Elektra to kill his father, Evgeny.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #75
Probably the day after H3 74. Banner awakens in Los Angeles under the mental influence of the Leader, who reveals himself to
be the man behind the Secret Conspiracy. The Hulk rampages through the city, then drops out of sight. That night, Samson,
Betty, and Nadia gather at Stark's place. The ladies locate the Hulk in northern California and arrive on the scene via helicopter.
Tony Stark cameos. Green grass and trees in California. Full moon.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #76
The same night as H3 75. This is the end of the Secret Conspiracy story arc, so after this Doc Samson does not have to wear the
eye patch to block the camera's view; he probably appears next, without eye patch, in A3 74, so the Hulk probably appears in A3
72 after this story. Betty and Nadia escape a copter crash. They discover the Leader, now a living brain in search of a Hulk
clone for a body. Samson and Iron Man arrive on the scene and fight the mind-controlled Hulk. In the ensuing melee, the
Leader and Nadia are killed. Hulk reverts to Banner. Distraught, Betty chews out Banner, who then leaves.
THUNDERBOLTS #79 (15-22)
One night, "two days" after TB 79 (1-14). Axum beats Slag in the ring and becomes world champion. After the fight, Axum
encounters Armadillo begging for change in an alley.
Saturday, March 29
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #13 (14-17)
The day after CM6 13 (1-13), if a day on Ilera corresponds to a day on Earth. Rick and Genis decide to "help" the grateful
people of Ilera.
WEAPON X v2 #8
One day, "days" after WX2 7. Mesmero's mother dies as Soldier X and company look on, Sabretooth confronts Dr. Windsor
about his activities, Domino and Maverick battle Reaper and Wildside, Washout dehydrates, and the Director reveals his face job
to Aurora. We see green grass and trees in Westchester, and snow flurries at Neverland. It is basketball season, so it is before
WEAPON X v2 #9
The same day as WX2 8. Domino and Maverick defeat Reaper and Wildside, Mesmero has lost his mental powers and
Sabretooth is free of Weapon X control, Washout faces his impending death, Kane is sent to Neverland, and the rest of Weapon
X appear to plot against the Director and Aurora. We see green trees and short-sleeved fans at a Yankees game, so it must be
after late March.
ELEKTRA v2 #32 (4-22)
The day after ELEK2 34-FB (5-7). Elektra trails Evgeny as illness sets in. It appears to be warm enough for people to hanging
out in light clothing on the boardwalk at Barrington Beach, NJ, where we see green grass and trees. Full moon.
ELEKTRA v2 #33
The same night as ELEK2 32 (4-22). It is "five years ago, almost six" after ELEK2 33-FB. Elektra catches up with Evgeny but
WOLVERINE/CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 - FB
One day. Beast and Forge examine a mutant computer chip in the X-Men's communications systems and Forge takes the chip to
the Avengers for further examination, but he is ambushed by the Contingency, which takes the chip. Green grass and trees in
WOLVERINE/CAPTAIN AMERICA #1
The same day as W/CA 1-FB. Forge arrives at Avengers Embassy, where he tells his tale to Cap and Warbird. Xavier (BTS)
sends Wolverine after the stolen chip and Logan finds the Contingency in the sewers under Manhattan. Cap and Warbird arrive
to find Logan shot up.
WOLVERINE/CAPTAIN AMERICA #2
The same day as W/CA 1. Cap, Warbird, and a powerless Wolverine battle the Contingency in Manhattan's sewers, and Logan
is left for dead, his healing power neutralized.
WOLVERINE/CAPTAIN AMERICA #3
The same day as W/CA 2. Warbird gets Logan to the SHIELD helicarrier for medical attention while Cap goes after the
Contingency, who get away. SHIELD finds a way to restore Logan's healing factor and save him from death.
WOLVERINE/CAPTAIN AMERICA #4 (1-16)
The same night as W/CA 3. Warbird has her classic costume here, so this story must occur before A3 65. The heroes locate the
Contingency making a deal with AIM for the mutant chip. In the ensuing battle, Logan retrieves the chip and guts Rapture. Full
Sunday, March 30
WOLVERINE/CAPTAIN AMERICA #4 (17-21)
The morning after W/CA 4 (1-16). Given that the Xavier is standing and the Institute is intact and operating, this issue must
occur before X 142, and Logan does not have his tiger-stripe outfit, so this segment may occur before UX 423. Logan reports
back to Xavier, Forge, and Beast, and Cyclops. Rapture drops in on her incarcerated teammates, noting that her suit's abilities
are now fused to her nervous system. Cap confronts Sharon Carter about the Contingency program.
ELEKTRA v2 #34 (1-20:3)
The day after ELEK2 33. Hallucinating, Elektra kills Evgeny, Urishka, and everyone else around. A desk calendar reads
"September," but this must be topical.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #13 (18-21)
Perhaps the day after CM6 13 (14-17). Rick and Genis impose new ideas about government, music, and religion on the leaders
of Ilera until the Magister implores them to leave. Failing to learn Genis' lesson about the meaning of true altruism, the Magister
earns death at the hands of Burstaar, who Genis resurrects.
WEAPON X v2 #10
The day after WX2 9. Sabretooth has escaped during the night and he assigns Marrow to retrieve him. After Agent Jackson
points out the hypocrisy of loving Aurora, Colcord attacks her. Soldier X interrogates the captured Reaper and Wildside, but
ends up frying their minds. Jackson, Washout, Sauron, and Wildchild burst into the Underground's stronghold and announce
that they're there to join Soldier X's team.
WEAPON X v2 #11
The same day as WX2 10. Colcord apologizes to Aurora, questions Windsor, orders that the powerless Mesmero be taken to
Neverland, and is attacked by Washout, who dies in the attempt to kill Colcord, but not before cutting the power long enough for
the Underground to enter the facility. Sabretooth returns.
WEAPON X: DAYS OF FUTURE NOW #3 - FB (4:1-4:2)
The same day as WX2 11. It is "months" before WX:DOFN 3-FB (4:3-4:6). Jackson frees Mesmero from the transport taking
him to Neverland.
WEAPON X v2 #12
The same day as WX:DOFN 3-FB (4:1-4:2). Marrow battles Sabretooth and flushes him out of the Weapon X compound; he
probably appears next in X 142. Jackson's Weapon X team and Soldier X's Underground lay siege to the compound, and, in a
change of heart, Kane sacrifices himself to help them. Colcord disfigures himself and escapes with Jeffries. Then Jackson
double-crosses his allies and lays them all out with a mental blast from Nathan, triggered by a code Jackson gives to the Weapon
WEAPON X v2 #13 (1-4:5)
The same day as WX2 12. Colcord escapes the Weapon X compound with Jeffries and Aurora.
WEAPON X v2 #13 - FB (7:3-8:1)
The same day as WX2 13 (1-4). Marrow evacuates the captured Soldier X, Blaquesmith, Meltdown, and Domino from the
Weapon X compound.

The same day as WX2 13-FB (7-8). Maverick encounters and escapes from Agent Zero.
WEAPON X v2 #13 (4:6-7:2, 8:2-8:3)
The same day as WX2 13-FB (9-11). Agent Jackson reports to a mysterious board of directors on these escapes.
WEAPON X v2 #13 (12-21)
The same day as WX2 13 (8). It is at least six months, inclusive, before WX2 19-FB. Jackson is appointed the new director of
Weapon X. Marrow flies Soldier X and company away and tricks Nathan into thinking that Weapon X is destroyed (after which
Nathan reports to the X-Men that Neverland is a myth, not long before WX 18-FB). Dr. Windsor takes another batch of mutants
out of Neverland to a secret lab, only to subdue them and reveal himself to be Mr. Sinister.
WEAPON X v2 #22 (1-7)
The same night as WX2 13 (1-4). This segment is noted as occurring on "day 1," fifteen days - "over two weeks" - before WX2
22 (8-14). Manifesting another personality, Aurora beats Colcord and strands him and Jeffries in a secluded location. Full
Monday, March 31
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #68 (1:1)
A "Monday." This segment may occur after DD:F 1-FB (23:2). Given that this storyline leads to Reed's disfigurement, this
segment may occur after PPTSS2 8. Ben hits up Johnny for an advance to no avail.
ELEKTRA v2 #34 (20:4-22)
The day after ELEK2 34 (1-20). Elektra awakens in her hotel room, her fever broken.
NEW INVADERS #7 - FB (16:5-16:6)
One day, "years" after INV3 7-FB (15). This flashback must occur before A3 65. Dell Rusk has Bruce Dickson released from
prison to spearhead an anti-terrorist unit.
WOLVERINE/DOOP #1 (1-9:3)
One day, sometime after XS 10. Wolverine (sans goatee) is called in to investigate a missing piece of pink fur and encounters the
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #56 - FB (2:2-4:4)
The night before ASM2 56 (1-19). For the eighth night in a row after ASM2 55 (7-22), Spidey secretly looks after Mel
Coolridge as she searches for her brother.
Tuesday, April 1: April Fools' Day
WOLVERINE/DOOP #1 (9:4-11)
One day. Wolverine can't get his mind off the Pink Lady. Orphan and Doop are called in to investigate people turning pink and
talking gibberish. It is "two weeks" (perhaps inclusive) before W/D 1 (12-22).
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #68 (1:3)
A "Tuesday," the day after FF3 68 (1:1). Johnny stonewalls Ben.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #56 (1-19)
One school day that occurs before another school day. "Eight nights" separate this segment from ASM2 55 (7-22), and this
segment is referred to as having occurred "the other night" in ASM2 56-FB (21-22). Peter states, "I haven't been teaching that
long. I just started here this semester." This would mean that everything from ASM2 32 (1-20) to now occurs during one
semester, but that's highly unlikely; Peter may refer to having starting teaching this particular class only this semester. Following
a tip received in a bar, Spidey finds Josh Coolridge in a rehab program run by Ezekiel. Green trees in New York.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #14
One day. Marvel deals with temporal fault lines he created when he remade the universe. In the process, he and Rick Jones
come face to face with their former selves and cope with inner conflicts. The Thing cameos, so this story cannot occur between
FF 503 and 511; he's playing poker with former versions of himself and it's hard to tell if he has the injuries shown circa FF 502.
Wednesday, April 2
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #68 (2:1)
A "Wednesday," the day after FF3 68 (1:3). Johnny continues to stonewall Ben.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #7 - FB (11-14)
One school day, "nine months" before CA5 7 (20:1-20:2) and perhaps a few weeks rather than "a few months" before CA5 7-
FB (15-16). Jack Monroe checks in on his baby Bucky, now a young girl named Julia Winters. He then goes to a bar where he
overhears a conversation he mistakenly believes is about drug dealing at Julia's elementary school. Jack dresses up as Nomad
and beats up innocent men he believes are drug dealers. Bare trees and snow on the ground in Pittsburgh.
Thursday, April 3
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #68 (2:3)
A "Thursday," the day after FF3 68 (2:1). Johnny avoids Ben.
Friday, April 4
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #68 (1:2, 1:4, 2:2)
Probably the day after FF3 68 (2:3).
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #68 (2:4-21)
The same day as FF3 68 (2:2). It is "weeks" after FF3 61. As Reed assists Johnny with a prank on Ben, Doom begins his attack
on the Fantastic Four through Valeria, who is presumably "only a few months old," but she is of an age at which she might be
expected to talk, and certainly isn't old enough to be overdue in that respect - she's able to say "Doom;" my placement here
would make her 12 months old Johnny is shown sunbathing in Manhattan, but this isn't necessarily an indication of warm
weather, given Johnny's power - all we can conclude is that it's sunny.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #69
The same day as FF3 68 (2-21). Franklin is lost in hell as the FF discover Doom's new M.O. and take the battle to Latveria. Dr.
FANTASTIC FOUR v3 #70
The same day as FF3 69. Doom defeats the FF and incarcerates the team in Latveria. Doom puts Reed in a situation that
requires a different intellect to find a solution.
FANTASTIC FOUR #500
The same day as FF3 70. It is "one week" before FF 505 (1-3). Dr. Strange helps Reed overcome his scientific arrogance to
allow him to use magic to defeat Doom, who disfigures Reed as Franklin is freed and the FF claims victory. Green trees and
short sleeves in New York.
FANTASTIC FOUR #537 - FB (2-4)
The same day as FF 500. It must be a year to the day before FF 537-FB (8:3-8:5). Doom is cast into hell and fights the hordes
there. The laws of time in hell may be different, and although Doom's time there may seem to be short, months may pass before
he escapes in FF 537-FB (5-6).
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #56 - FB (21-22)
The afternoon of a school day. ASM2 56 (1-19) is referred to as having occurred "the other night." Mel and Josh Coolridge are
reunited. Short-sleeve weather in New York.
NYX #4 - FB (11:2-11:5)
One day. In a railway yard, Kiden says goodbye to Alex as he gets on a train and heads home. She decides to return home as
well. She phones home and somebody answers but she hangs up. She starts to hitch a lift back to New York.
Saturday, April 5
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #56 (20)
Probably the day after ASM2 56-FB (21-22). Peter tells M.J. about the Coolridges as they sit in Central Park, where we see
green trees and light clothing.
SECRET WAR #1/2
One day. Jasper Sitwell and James Woo interrogate Jack O'Lantern after the villain's failed bank robbery. During this
interrogation, Macendale admits that someone is backing the Tinkerer's operation. This scene is presented as a transcript in a
SHIELD database; no one actually appears in this feature. The date of the recording is noted as "4/5/2003;" the year, of course,
is topical, but the date may be accurate. This date is less than a year before the "February 12, 2004" date noted in
SECWAR:FFNF (2), but according to the storyline it should be more than a year before.
Sunday, April 6
FANTASTIC FOUR #501
Probably the day after FF 500. The FF deal with the effect that Franklin's visit to Hell has had on his mind, and Reed faces the
scars that the encounter with Doom has left him, physically and mentally. Sue, Ben, and Franklin visit Coney Island, where we
see warm weather.
FANTASTIC FOUR #502 (1-19)
The same day as FF 501. At Coney Island, where it is warm and green, Sue and Ben help Franklin, who thinks he's still in hell.
Reed, Johnny and Valeria travel back to Doom's youth to deal with Reed's emotional state. There, Reed takes a sample of
Doom's hair. It is a "couple of weeks" before FF 503.
X-MEN v2 #201 - FB (5:3)
One day. According to a Neverland file, it is "day 641," so it is 34 days after X 201-FB (5:2) and 60 days before X 201-FB (5:4). Neverland soldiers escort subjects to the science division.
AVENGERS v3 #64
One day. Hank and Jan have left a note saying, "off to Vegas, see you soon," so this story likely occurs a few days before A3 71.
Falcon battles Scarecrow and comes to terms with Gyrich, who unbeknownst to the Avengers, appears to be betraying them.
Gyrich has been trying to talk the U.N. out of going to war with Asgard and to convince them that the Jack of Hearts situation is
under control. The Asgard reference places this story before T2 66 and probably after T2 65. We see green grass and light
clothing in Manhattan. Full moon.
NYX #4 - FB (12-13)
One day, "a couple of days" after NYX 4-FB (11). Kiden arrives back home in Alphabet City. She meets Tyler and his friend
Jerome. Tyler tells Kiden that things have gone well for the family while she's been away. Liz Nixon has met a new man and is
about to remarry. The family will move to Long Island next month. Kiden irrationally decides that she family is better off
without her, and leaves. At night, Kiden tries to sleep in an alley and is visited for the first time by the ghost of her father Pat.
NYX #2 (17-22)
The same night as NYX 4-FB (12-13). It is "six months" after NYX 2 (1-16). Cameron is on long-term sick leave and is sitting,
depressed, in her apartment. Something has happened to Sam, but exactly what isn't specified - it's strongly implied that he's
either dead or he's left her. Principal Weissman comes by to try and persuade her to come back, but Cameron refuses. Later,
Kiden arrives at the flat and finds that Cameron has attempted suicide.
NYX #3 (1-12)
The same rainy night as NYX 2 (17-22). This segment occurs after X-23 6 (23). Cameron is taken to hospital and Kiden sits by
her bedside. Prostitute X-23 is waiting for business but is picked up by her pimp, Zebra Daddy, who takes her to a party. He is
annoyed to see that she is cutting herself. He calls over another prostitute, Jade, to deal with an important client. Jade protests
that the last time she dealt with this client, he hospitalized her. Zebra Daddy beats her up and sends her anyway.
Monday, April 7
SPIDER-MAN: BLACK & BLUE & READ ALL OVER #1 - FB (2:1, 3:5-4:1)
Early one morning. Peter Parker has a nightmare about the Vulture.
SPIDER-MAN: BLACK & BLUE & READ ALL OVER #1 (1-12)
The same day as SM:BBRAP 1-FB (2:1, 3:5-4:1). It is "almost six months" after SM:BBRAO 1-FB (5:6, 6:7). Peter Parker
tells Aunt May about his recurring nightmare about the Vulture and feels he's not making a difference as a crime-fighter. May
encourages Peter to reveal his identity to inspire others. Spidey goes to the Daily Bugle and asks Jonah to run a column in the
"Wednesday edition" of the paper that tells Spidey's story from his own perspective. In return, Spidey agrees to unmask "the day
after" the story is run. Today's edition of the Bugle has the headline, "Spider-Man Wrecks Subway." Jackets and coats in New
FANTASTIC FOUR #502 - FB
One day, probably a couple of days after FF 502 (1-19). An improving Franklin asks Ben to teach him how to shoot a free

One day. This story must occur after BP3 62, CA4 16, and W/CA 4. There is no more mention of the Asgard situation, which may be an indication that this story occurs after T2 79 (21-24); surely Lord Thor would have dealt with the Red Zone situation were he still dealing with global threats to earth. The Avengers investigate a deadly red gas that has killed people in South Dakota, where we see green grass and trees and warm, short-sleeve and shorts weather. Tourists are visiting Mount Rushmore. Ant-Man, Jack of Hearts, She-Hulk, and Warbird all appear in new costumes. Given that this story leads to Jen's mass destruction of property in A3 73-75 and the fact that she holds that kind of destruction against Juggernaut in UX 435, this
story probably occurs after UX 436. The whereabouts of Hank and Jan are unknown; the Las Vegas trip noted in A3 64 and seen
in A3 71 likely is finished by now.
AVENGERS v3 #66
The same day as A3 65. The Avengers continue to deal with the Red Zone in South Dakota, where we see green trees.
AVENGERS v3 #67
The same day as A3 66, no more than "seven hours" after A3 65. The Avengers discover that the source of the deadly bacteria is
a government facility beneath Mount Rushmore and they encounter AIM terrorists inside. After Tony Stark and T'Challa
analyze the bacteria, they are subdued by U.S. soldiers.
AVENGERS v3 #68
The same day as A3 67. It is "a few weeks" before A3 72. Exposed to the bacteria, She-Hulk mutates into a bestial form, battles
her teammates, and flees. The Avengers discover that Secretary of Defense Dell Rusk is behind the Red Zone, and when Falcon
and Gyrich get too close, they are shot by Rusk, aka the Red Skull.
AVENGERS v3 #69
The same day as A3 68. As the Avengers continue to deal with the Red Zone, Cap tracks down the Red Skull, who has Gyrich
and Falcon held prisoner. T'Challa and Iron Man break free of their captivity and confront the Skull. Green trees in South
AVENGERS v3 #70 (1-15)
The same day as A3 69. As Wanda stems the spread of the Red Zone bacteria, Black Panther defeats the Skull and takes his
blood to use its antibodies to neutralize the bacteria.
Tuesday, April 8
FANTASTIC FOUR #502 (20-21)
The day after FF 502-FB. Ben writes in his journal, noting that "this has been a pretty wild month."
AVENGERS v3 #70 (16-20)
Probably the day after A3 70 (1-15). It is "two weeks" before A3 70 (21) and "not long" before A3 84. This segment must occur
before IM3 73 (7-12). The Red Zone is neutralized, a government investigation begins into the Skull's infiltration of the
Cabinet, Ant-Man and Jack of Hearts recuperate, Iron Man and the Panther enter into a scientific sharing agreement, Warbird
accepts a presidential appointment to homeland security, and a humble Gyrich decides to stay with the Avengers.
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1 (1-9)
One day during what is probably the spring semester of a college year. Snobbish, rich college kid David Daily gets others to do
his homework for him, is a jerk to the basketball team, and gets a message from his mother threatening to cut off his funds if he
doesn't graduate this semester. He sets to work on a script for a student film, but can't think of anything to write, and falls
asleep. We see light clothing and green trees.
Wednesday, April 9
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1 (10-13)
The day after EA 1 (1-9). It is a day college classes are in session. Daily visits Carly and asks her help him think of ideas for his
student film. They spend a few hours plotting the script before falling asleep on the sofa.
AVENGERS v3 #71
One day. Hank and Jan are in Vegas, where they have been for at least "seventy-three hours." This likely puts A3 71 a few days
after A3 64. Hank proposes to Jan, but she turns him down. Whirlwind attacks and Hank and Jan make short work of him.
FANTASTIC FOUR #503 (1-16)
One day. The Fantastic Four fight back Hungarian troops looking to invade the leader-less Latveria and set to work to secure
Castle Doom against possible siege by nefarious villains. It is sometime during the school year, as someone is working on a
"term paper." It is warm enough for short sleeves in Manhattan. Full moon.
NYX #3 (13-17)
One day, perhaps a few days after NYX 3 (1-12). Cameron and Kiden eat together in her apartment. Kiden finally tries to
explain that she's a mutant and that Hector was trying to shoot her. Cameron dismisses most of this as fantasy. After some
squabbling, she lets Kiden stay the night, but threatens to call Child Services in the morning if Kiden does not visit her parents.
SPIDER-MAN: BLACK & BLUE & READ ALL OVER #1 (13-16)
The "Wednesday" after SM:BBRAO 1 (1-12). Spidey battles Mr. Hyde. Spider-Man's article runs in the Daily Bugle and
among those who read it are Cap and Iron Man. The headline reads, "Tomorrow We Reveal Who the Wall-Crawling Menace
Really Is!" The article rebuts Jameson's editorials and mentions 9-11. That night at their apartment, M.J. reads the article and
tells Peter, "you might even make the Avengers this time, Tiger.," to which Peter replies, "Avengers Mansion's going to be the
only place safe for you and Aunt May tomorrow morning, Mary Jane. I'd better freshen up my resume" - this dialog places this
entire story before Disassembled.
Thursday, April 10
NYX #3 (18-21)
The early morning after NYX 3 (13-17). Kiden has a dream where her father tells her to go to room 202 of the Hotel Brasil.
Kiden notes down the address and races off to the hotel. Cameron hears the disturbance, wakes up, and sees the address written
down. A client pulls a knife on X-23.
NYX #4 - FB (19-20)
The same early morning as NYX 3 (18-21). X-23's client kills himself with the knife.
NYX #3 (22-24)
The same early morning as NYX 4-FB (19-20). Kiden and Cameron race to room 202 and find X-23 crouched over the body of
her client. X-23 has two claws extending from her left hand, and has apparently been using them to cut her own right arm, which
is bleeding from claw marks.
NYX #5 - FB
The same early morning as NYX 3 (22-24). It is "eighteen hours" before NYX 5. Tanya, one of the prostitutes, reports to Zebra
Daddy that X-23 just shived a john. The pimp tells Tanya to follow X-23.
SPIDER-MAN: BLACK & BLUE & READ ALL OVER #1 (17-22)
The day after SM:BBRAO 1 (13-16). Peter wakes up and heads to the Daily Bugle to unmask himself, as per his deal with
Jonah. Fortunately, his article moved many people who show up in Spidey costumes and unmask before Jameson. That night at
their apartment, Peter, M.J., and May (who may be visiting for the night) read the Daily Bugle, which has the headline, "Spider-
Man Brainwashes New York City."
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1 (14-18)
The day after EA 1 (10-13). Suspecting that someone's been breaking into his room, Daily confronts the basketball players and
they beat him up. After waking from an afternoon nap, Daily realizes the window has been opened in his sleep, so he gets a
video camera and sets it to record tonight when he goes to sleep.
FANTASTIC FOUR #503 (17-21)
The day after FF 503 (1-16). It is a "couple of weeks" after FF 502 (1-19). Reed announces to his teammates that they'll be
staying in Latveria, where we see green trees.
The same day as NYX 5-FB. A girl called Tatiana tends to a large number of pet animals, one of which is a parrot that gets into
a fight with Tatiana's mother's boyfriend, Reuben. Kiden, Cameron and X-23 eat in a café and X-23 denies killing her client.
They go to Cameron's apartment, where Kiden panics as her father's ghost appears. Green trees; it's apparently spring.
NYX #5 (4-9)
The same night as NYX 4. The ghost of Kiden's dad tells her she has to get out now. Just as she, Cameron, and X-23 leave the
apartment out the fire escape, Zebra Daddy's men blast in. When they see that the girls have slipped away, Zebra Daddy suspects
Tanya of tipping them off. "Two hours later," Cameron tries to make sense of the day's events.
WOLVERINE/DOOP #1 (12-22)
One night, "two weeks" (perhaps inclusive) after W/D 1 (9-11). After working on the Pink Lady case for two weeks, Wolverine
and Doop find the Pink Lady and end up suspecting that each other has Code-X, a gene that renders mutants unstable. Orphan
and Professor X appear.
WOLVERINE/DOOP #2 (1-19)
The same night as W/D 1 (12-22). Wolverine and Doop rescue the Pink Lady from Hunter Joe. Professor X and Orphan appear.
Friday, April 11
IRON MAN v3 #70 (1-3)
Early one morning of a day the stocks are open. Since this is the beginning of a storyline that occurs right before the Stark-as-
Secretary-of-Defense storyline, it is likely that this segment occurs after INV3 0. Saige Kaufman calls Stark to ask him to help
with a missing person investigation in Las Vegas.
NYX #5 (10-26)
The day after NYX 5 (4-9). It is a school day. At "7:24 AM," a dog is hit by a car and Tatiana helps the dog. Kiden goes
dumpster diving for breakfast and sees her dad's ghost again. Tatiana gets to class at Bronx Vocational High School and there
she throws up and turns into a wolf-like creature. She flees with mutant haters in pursuit. Following the ghost's instructions,
Kiden takes X-23 and Cameron to the Bronx, where they encounter the crazed mob chasing Tatiana. The mob is frightened away
by her complete transformation and the girls help Tatiana, who is disgusted by the fact that she killed a cat. Green trees in New
NYX #6 (1-12)
The same day as NYX 5 (10-26). Felon wakes up in a hotel room and gets a phone call from Zebra Daddy, who wants Felon to
meet him. Felon hangs up and starts to head home but has trouble remembering things. Kiden, Cameron, Tatiana, and X-23 talk
about what Tatiana's been through "today." Tatiana decides to go home, and Kiden sees the ghost of her dad. Zebra Daddy
wants Felon to find X-23 and bring her back to him. Tatiana comes home to find her mother having sex with some guy on the
couch. Her mother asks her why she isn't in school, and Tatiana runs out to meet Kiden who's waiting for her.
WOLVERINE/DOOP #2 (20-22)
The day after W/D 2 (1-19). This segment probably occurs before XS 11 (1-15). After spending the night in Toronto, Wolverine
and Doop go their separate ways and share some post-op. Green trees in Toronto and in California, where we see X-Statix (but
no El Guapo).
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1 (19-22)
The day after EA 1 (14-18). Daily notices his window has been opened again and checks his film recorder, only to see footage of
Sleepwalker in his room.
FANTASTIC FOUR #504
The day after FF 503 (17-21). Nick Fury is summoned to the UN regarding the international political fallout of Reed Richards'
claim to Latveria. The FF question Reed's plans, but after they encounter an abattoir and a room full of WMDs, they dedicate
themselves to dismantling Doom's resources. A comment by Johnny suggests that he was in high school "seven, eight years
back," but it must be longer ago than that.
Saturday, April 12
FANTASTIC FOUR #505 (1-3:2)
One day, "one week" after FF 500. In a televised message, Reed invites the Latverian people to loot and pillage Doom's castle
"at dawn tomorrow."
X-STATIX #11 (1-15)
One day. El Guapo is invited to become a member of X-Statix. He goes on a risky first mission and decides to join. Logan
makes a guest appearance. We see green trees in California, where it is warm enough for an outdoor party.
NYX #6 (13-27)
The day after NYX 6 (1-12). At 7:36 AM, Felon talks to his handicapped brother when the babysitter arrives. At 8:06 AM,
Felon talks to Tanya, who gives him Cameron's address. At 8:18 AM, Felon goes to Cameron's apartment, which has been
cordoned off by the police. At 8:30 AM, Felon finds a girl at school and asks her where her friends are. Cameron gets mad at
Kiden while Tatiana and X-23 watch. Felon calls Zebra Daddy to let him know where to find X-23 and friends. Kiden goes
dumpster diving while the others try to decide what to do next. At 8:07 PM, Felon feeds his brother but can't remember what he
did today. He then sees the ghost of Kiden's dad.
NYX #7 (1-41)
The same night as NYX 6 (13-27). It is "two days" before NYX 7 (42-43). This segment occurs before UX 450. At "8:13 PM,"
Kiden's father tells Felon to help the girls. At "8:19 PM," Zebra Daddy sends his goons out after the girls. At "8:23 PM,"
Tatiana figures out that her power is activated from contact with animal blood. At "9:44 PM," Kiden's family prepares to away
"in two days," and they won't be around "on Tuesday," so it may be Saturday. At "9:52," one of Zebra Daddy's men spots the
girls returning to Cameron's building. As the others wait outside, Cameron enters her apartment as is attacked. The ghost of
Kiden's father shows up and tells Kiden to flee, but Kiden refuses. Zebra Daddy and his goons show up and the girls, joined by
Felon, fight and kill them. The girls go with Felon back to his place. The ghost of Kiden's father appears to Felon's brother.
Green trees in New York.
Sunday, April 13
FANTASTIC FOUR #505 (3:3-21)
The day after FF 505 (1-3). The U.N. decides to issue an ultimatum to Reed to withdraw from Latveria "within 48 hours" or face
war with 39 nations. Latverians ransack Doom's castle at Reed's invitation and the FF thwart a would-be suicide terrorist. Reed
promises Franklin (who is visiting while he and Valeria are being cared for by the Inhumans, perhaps during Franklin's spring
break from school) that "we won't spend your birthday" at Doom's castle, but this doesn't necessarily mean it's shortly before
Franklin's late August birthday. After the Thing challenges Reed's tactics, he and Johnny flush out the Latverian resistance, only
to be attacked by Doombots under Reed's direction.
X-STATIX #11 (16)
Perhaps the day after XS 11 (1-15). Phat suggests that Myles is falling for El Guapo.
IRON MAN v3 #70 (4)
One day. Stark drives his '57 Thunderbird across what appears to be the plains on his way to Vegas. The car has New York
plates, but that doesn't necessarily mean he's making a full cross-country trip. It is warm enough for Stark to drive in shorts with
the top down.
Monday, April 14
FANTASTIC FOUR #506
The day after FF 505 (3-21). Multinational troops converge on the borders of Latveria as Nick Fury tries in vain to get Reed to
relinquish control of Latveria. After "twelve hours, 38 minutes" in jail, Ben and Johnny awaken and bust out, then Reed
manipulates them and Sue into making a public show of saving Latverian rebels from the last of the Doombots. When they
discover the impending invasion, Sue, Ben and Johnny leave Latveria to appeal to Fury, but it's too late. Reed leaves a note for
Sue to be read following his death.
FANTASTIC FOUR #507
The same day as FF 506. As Fury and U.N. armies invade Latveria, Reed retrieves Doom from Hell and locks himself and Doom
in an other-dimensional prison. Reed's teammates find a way to access the Mobius dimension and Doom uses the opportunity to
escape in Sue's body.
FANTASTIC FOUR #508 (1-20)
The same day as FF 507. It is "six weeks" before FF 508 (21-22). The FF, Fury, and U.N. troops try to subdue Doom in Sue's
body, but Doom transfers his essence first to Johnny's body, then to Ben's. Threatening to kill everyone, Doom forces Reed's
hand into shooting Ben with a deadly weapon; the action gets rid of Doom, but kills Ben.
FANTASTIC FOUR #509 (1-3)
The same day as FF 508 (1-20). It is "six weeks" before FF 509 (7-15), and thus five weeks before FF 509 (4-6). This segment
must occur long enough before SECWAR 1-FB (19-23) for Latveria to have an election. This story probably occurs before
Stark's bid for Secretary of Defense in IM3 73. "Enough months haven't gone by" between this segment and FOES 3 (7-22).
After "an hour" of trying to revive the deceased Thing, Reed is forced to give up. Probably immediately after this, Lucia von
Bardas is installed as head of Latveria.
NYX #7 (42-43)
One day, "two days" after NYX 7 (1-41). Kiden's family moves away and Kiden's mother misses receiving a letter from Kiden.
The New York mailman is wearing shorts and a short-sleeved shirt.

One day. This story probably occurs before WX2 28-FB. As he gets ready to deal with another of his mutant test subjects, Mr.
Sinister thinks back to his days working for the Nazis in World War II.

One night. Stark arrives in Vegas, meets Saige, and helps nab some kidnappers by setting himself up as a high roller.
Tuesday, April 15
WEAPON X v2 #22 (8-14)
One day. It is "day 16," or fifteen days - "over two weeks" - after WX2 22 (1-7), and seven days before WX2 22 (15-18).
Colcord and Jeffries are now based at the old Weapon X complex, where we see bare trees and snow. Jeffries has been working
with Bot, his new creation, while Colcord, in a drunken stupor, imagines seeing Logan.
IRON MAN v3 #70 (15-22)
The night of the day after IM3 70 (5-14). After cleaning up in the casino, Stark is attacked in his hotel room by his own armor,
manipulated into a living creature by nanoplasm.
IRON MAN v3 #71 (1-4)
The same night as IM3 70 (15-22). Tony destroys the armor and takes a sample of the nanoplasm.
Wednesday, April 16
IRON MAN v3 #71 (5-21)
The day after IM3 71 (1-4). Tony examines the nanoplasm and traces its history back to the site of an old UFO crash, where he,
as Iron Man (in a new ablative armor), finds the missing person, Mo Stanton, who is infected by the alien nanoplasm. In
rescuing Stanton, Iron Man becomes infected.
IRON MAN v3 #72 (1-18)
The same day as IM3 71 (5-21). It is "four days" before IM3 72 (18-21). Iron Man is purged of the nanoplasm and defeats Marc
Vicus, who planned to infect Las Vegas with the substance.
Thursday, April 17
DAREDEVIL v2 #72 - FB (4:8-18)
One day, sometime after DD2 50 (20-23) and "years" after the Kingpin discovered DD's identity. Archie Meyers visits his
father, "Don the Bomb," in prison and agrees to do him a favor. As instructed, Archie goes to the closed Josie's Bar and meets a
thug named Gregor, who gives him a bomb to put underneath Foggy Nelson's car. Archie takes the bomb but is torn with guilt.
He goes home and looks at his sleeping son and talks to his wife about how Don abused him as a child. His wife warns him that
no matter how hard he tries, he will never get his father's love.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (43-44)
One day, sometime after Bardas became head of Latveria, following FF 509 (1-3). Jasper Sitwell interviews Debbie Bertrand's
parents. The recording date is"4/17/05."
Friday, April 18
DAREDEVIL v2 #72 - FB (19-22)
Perhaps the day after DD2 72-FB (8-18). Archie drives by Matt Murdock's law office and sees Matt standing outside talking to
other people in business suits. Archie glances back at the bomb in his back seat and drives away. Probably that night, Gregor
and another thug walk back into the back of Josie's Bar and are killed in an explosion. In a nearby alley, Archie watches the
BLACK PANTHER v4 #8 - FB (8:1)
One day. Erich Paine gives a bribe to a government official that allows him to do his experiments in Niganda without
Saturday, April 19
X-STATIX #11 (17)
One day. It is perhaps several days after XS 11 (16), long enough for El Guapo to learn Doop-speak. El Guapo is tempted to
cheat on his girlfriend but remains steadfast. "It's two weeks" before XS 11 (18).
DAREDEVIL v2 #74 - FB (7-11)
One day, "a year" after DD2 26-FB (8-22). At lunch, Milla tells Lynn that she is living with Matt Murdock and plans on
marrying him. Lynn asks if it's true that Matt is Daredevil and that he's the new Kingpin, but Milla avoids the questions.
Sunday, April 20
IRON MAN v3 #72 (19-21)
One day, "four days" after IM3 72 (1-18). Saige notes that "yo La Tengo's playing the House of Blues on Tuesday." Tony
leaves Las Vegas; he may or may not drive his car the whole way back to New York (my guess is he goes as far as the Vegas
airport). Marc Vicus hitches a ride. In IM3 74, Rumiko notes "you hardly get back from Las Vegas, and then you're out again,"
an indication that this segment occurs shortly before IM3 73 (7-12).
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #1 (1-10)
One day. It is "a month and a half" before SMU 1 (11). Peter Parker and Ben Urich cover a human interest story for the Bugle
at the Derleth House for terminally ill children. There Peter meets Stella Davis, a young Spidey fan with less than "three
months" to live. Stella refuses to talk. That night, Spidey takes her on a web ride and encounters three bad guys, which forces
Stella to talk to save her hero. Stella opens up to Spidey after they return to Derleth House. Spidey then thanks the "bad guys" -
Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Luke Cage in disguise. Green grass and trees in New York. Full moon.
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1/3 (1-4)
One day. A young couple, Rikki and Ize, are led by a woman from a New Orleans nightclub to a back alley, where they meet up
with a creepy girl named Diana who's surrounded by cats. The couple is attacked. Full moon.
Monday, April 21
AVENGERS v3 #70 (21)
One day, "two weeks" after A3 70 (16-20). Vision and Wanda visit victims of the Red Zone in a hospital. She-Hulk is still
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1/3 (5-10)
The day after EA 1/3 (1-4). A young witch named Sofia Strange diffuses a hostage situation at a New Orleans hotel and tells the
Whisperer, the ghost responsible for the situation, not to share secrets that could get people hurt. That evening, Sofia meets with
her Aunt Vesper, another witch on the run. Sofia convinces Vesper to let them stay in New Orleans so that she can help this city
with its supernatural problems, so long as Sofia gets a job. Green trees in New Orleans. Full moon.
WEAPON X v2 #22 (15-18)
One night. It is "day 23," seven days after WX2 22 (8-14) and eleven days before WX2 22 (19-22). Colcord contacts his former
superiors, who tell him that Jackson is the new director and that Colcord's no longer wanted, despite the fact that "recently things
have gotten a bit...complicated" at Weapon X (an unclear reference). Colcord's imaginary Logan tells him to get back into the
game. We see bare trees at the old Weapon X complex. Full moon.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #1 (1-13)
One night. It is long enough after CD 1-FB (6-7) for Gennady to make it from B to V in the alphabetical list (in Russian) of box
subjects. Gennady finds the Crimson Dynamo helmet in the Moscow State University warehouse and inadvertently activates the
Dynamo armor in Siberia. Bare trees and snow in Russia.
Tuesday, April 22
CRIMSON DYNAMO #1 (14-23)
The day after CD 1 (1-13). It is "five days" before CD 2 (1-3). Thinking the Dynamo helmet a video game system, Gennady
inadvertently uses it at home to make the Dynamo armor break free of a Siberian arsenal. It is a "Saturday." We see bare trees
and snow ("for no reason") in Russia.
EPIC ANTHOLOGY #1/3 (11-22)
The day after EA 1/3 (5-10). While applying for a job at a department store, Sofia apprehends Detroit Mike, a shoplifting
teenager. Mike explains that he's looking for his sister Rikki and that the Vampire Games is his only lead. Sofia decides to help
Mike and that night they go to a gathering of people pretending to be vampires in a local park. Some of the "vampires" tell Sofia
and Mike they saw Rikki a few nights ago. Sofia tells Mike she's got a spell in mind that'll help locate his sister. Meanwhile,
Diana casts a spell that revives the evil spirit of Civil War general Butler and puts it into Rikki's body. Green trees and long
sleeves and jackets in New Orleans, where it's warm enough to dine al fresco.
THUNDERBOLTS #80 (1-6)
A weekday. Man-Killer gets trounced by Spider-Man. Spidey mentions watching "a ball game" as something he has to do. Full
AVENGERS v3 #72
One day, "a few weeks" after A3 68. This story probably occurs after H3 76. A newscast mentions that the Hulk leveled a bar in
Boise "earlier this week," suggesting that this story occurs after Monday. Jennifer Walters arrives in Bone, Idaho to catch up
with her cousin Bruce, but hot on her heels are Cap, Iron Man, and Wanda. When Wanda confronts Jennifer, the latter turns into
She-Hulk. We see green grass, but we also see falling leaves, bare trees, and heavy coats and hats in Idaho, as well as a sign for a
"fall tire sale," and someone mentions that it is "winter," but all these references are probably topical.
AVENGERS v3 #73
The same day as A3 72. Ant-Man is visited at Avengers Embassy by his daughter Cassie, then he locks Jack of Hearts in the
Zero Room "for fourteen hours." She-Hulk destroys Bone, Idaho as she faces Cap, Iron Man, and Wanda, who are joined by
Hawkeye. Yellowjacket is "still absent," although this absence doesn't necessarily refer to the Vegas getaway of A3 71. Green
grass and trees, with some trees starting to change color, in New York, where it is warm enough for Cassie to wear a tank top and
AVENGERS v3 #74
The same day as A3 73. As Hawkeye tries to stop She-Hulk, Bruce Banner shows up and Hawkeye forces him to change into the
Hulk to deal with his cousin as Doc Samson (without his eyepatch) and the Army arrive on the scene. We see bare trees and
snow starting to fall in Idaho, but these references are probably topical.
AVENGERS v3 #75
The same day as A3 74. This story occurs within "a year or so" before S-H4 1 and "months" before S-H4 4-FB (9-20). The
carnage between Hulk and She-Hulk forces Cap to get Ant-Man to break Jack of Hearts (for whom "the last few months have
been hard") out of the Zero Room so he can release his pent-up radiation in a desperate bid to cure Jennifer. The strategy works
and She-Hulk reverts to normal, but she and Jack cannot be near each other ever again. Banner wanders off in the aftermath and
Hawkeye declares he's rejoining the team. Snow in Idaho and green grass and trees in Manhattan.
Wednesday, April 23
AVENGERS v3 #76
Probably the day after A3 75. This story occurs before A/TB 1 and probably before IM3 70 (1-3). This story occurs before UX
435 (1-18) and S-H3 11-FB (7:2) and must occur before MMFFF (4-5). As the Avengers debate the fate of Jack of Hearts,
Cassie Lang is kidnaped by a deranged man named Charles Cooley. Ant-Man goes to her rescue and Jack of Hearts joins him.
With his time out of the Zero Room running out, Jack grabs Cooley and soars into space, where he explodes. A 500 notes that
Jack of Hearts' file is inactive as of "May 5 of this year" - it may have taken a couple of weeks to deactivate the file. Green grass
and trees and warm weather (shorts and T-shirts) in New York.
THUNDERBOLTS #80 (7-22)
The day after TB 80 (1-6). Man-Killer is bailed out of jail by Trueno, who wants to make her into a new fight star. Recognizing
Axum as the Battler, she invites him to have drink in a bar where they meet up with Delilah and Max Gargan. Man-Killer asks
Axel to join a team to beat Spidey. Axel's mom says that going to the zoo would be good, "now that it's warm," an indication
that this story occurs in early spring.
THUNDERBOLTS #81 (1-10)
The same night as TB 80. It is "almost four years" after TB 81-FB. Axel tells Man-Killer and company that he'll think about the
offer to join them in ganging up on Spidey. He thinks about his future in the fights, considering Armadillo's fate and Man-
Killer's labeling of Trueno as a con man.
Thursday, April 24
THUNDERBOLTS #81 (11-21)
The day after TB 81 (1-10). It is another weekday. Axel tells off Trueno and helps Armadillo, and Trueno's lawyer gets the
charges against Man-Killer dismissed. Axel and Man-Killer decide against the team-up against Spidey planned for "Saturday."
Friday, April 25
IRON MAN v3 #73 - FB
One day. In this video clip, a test of new U.S. military equipment in Africa goes awry. It is the "Friday" before IM3 73 (5-6).
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6/2 (5:5-5:8)
One day. After working out, Augie becomes a prison tough guy. According to a wall calendar, it's Friday the 25th.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #9/2 - FB (6:1-6:4)
One day. Iceman plays video games with Skin, who apparently is back at Xavier's, perhaps for a visit.
Saturday, April 26
THUNDERBOLTS #81 (22)
The "Saturday night" after TB 81 (11-21). Axel enjoys quality time with his mother and child, Man-Killer celebrates her case
being dismissed, and Scorpion and Delilah get webbed up by Spider-Man.
Sunday, April 27
CRIMSON DYNAMO #2 (1-3)
One day, "five days" after CD 1 (14-23). Gennady hurries home to play with the Dynamo helmet. The snow in Moscow may be
UNCANNY X-MEN #423
One day. This story must occur after XU2 9/2-FB (6:1-6:4). It cannot be "a few weeks" after UX 422, but rather several
months, as noted in UX 424. Nightcrawler, Havok, Polaris, Cyclops, and Jean are all at Xavier's. Logan's goatee is gone and he
has a new outfit, black with yellow tiger stripes - so it's likely after W/CA 4. The Church of Humanity leaves a calling card in
front of Xavier's - a bunch of crucified mutants, including Jubilee, Skin, Jesse Bedlam, and Magma, shortly before NM2 3 (1-
19); I suggest a Sunday as a symbolic day to do this. Archangel's healing powers save some of them, but Angelo dies. Xorn and
Xavier cannot be reached; Xavier probably has left the school as he intended to do. After Cyclops chews out Kurt for not
briefing the team about the Church, they discover that someone's been messing with Kurt through his presumed life as a priest.
That night, they find slaughtered mutants beneath St. Michael's Church. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
UNCANNY X-MEN #424 (1-5:1)
The same night as UX 423. At St. Michael's church, the X-Men discover the plot of the Church of Humanity and decide to head
to Montana to fight it. It is "several months" after the destruction of Genosha in X 115.
Monday, April 28
UNCANNY X-MEN #424 (5:2-24:2)
The day after UX 424 (1-5). It is "a few months" after UX 422, and the reference that UX 423 is only "a few weeks" after UX
422 must be incorrect. The X-Men attack the Church of Humanity compound in Montana, where we see green grass. The X-
IRON MAN v3 #73 (5-6)
Perhaps the day after IM3 73-FB. Military brass review the tape of the ill-fated Africa test and conclude that they need to hire
CRIMSON DYNAMO #2 (4-7)
The day after CD 2 (1-3). After working at the university, Gennady heads home. That evening at a hockey game, Devereaux
arranges for the abduction of the Dynamo armor as it marches toward Moscow.
Tuesday, April 29
CRIMSON DYNAMO #2 (8-22)
The morning after CD 2 (4-7). Devereaux's men abduct the Dynamo armor and attempt to flee the Russian army, but Gennady
activates the armor and unwittingly foils their plan. As the armor rides atop a train heading for Moscow, Gennady reports to
school and learns that his virtual reality game was activating a real armor. Full moon.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #3 (1-21)
The same day as CD 2 (8-22). Gennady faces possible expulsion from school as he secretly frets about the armor, which he fails
to stop from continuing its trek toward Moscow. That night (early morning in Moscow but afternoon of a school day in
Louisiana) he gets advice from his American e-mail pal to see Anton Vanko. The snow in Moscow may be topical.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #1 - FB
One day, shortly after SMU2 1 (1-10). Stella has a pleasant visit from her parents at Derleth House.
IRON MAN v3 #79 - FB (1-6)
One day. It is "ten days" before IM3 79 (7-21), which refers to this flashback as having occurred "last week." Vitriol attacks
U.S. forces in Iraq.
Wednesday, April 30
CRIMSON DYNAMO #3 (22)
The day after CD 3 (1-21). Gennady shows up at Moscow University to see Vanko, but other men have the same idea.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #4
The same day as CD 3 (22). As the armor continues toward Moscow, Gennady eludes Devereaux, while Jennings tries to help by
contacting Tony Stark. Green trees, snow, and coats in Russia.
IRON MAN v3 #73 (7-12)
Perhaps the day after IM3 73 (5-6). This segment must occur after A3 70 (16-20), as there is a "current vacancy at Secretary of
Defense," following the exposure of Dell Rusk as the Red Skull. In IM3 74, Rumiko notes "you hardly get back from Las Vegas,
and then you're out again," an indication that this segment occurs shortly after IM3 72 (19-21). This storyline probably occurs
after FF 509 (1-3). The President gets Stark to meet his Chief of Staff at a Defcon East technology trade show, held at a location
(presumably the DC area) with green grass and trees. The Chief offers Tony a job as a consultant with the Department of
Defense and gives him a disk showing the Africa test. As Tony watches the video, he answers a summons from Captain America
to help rescue a Navy sub crippled by a piece of Cross equipment using a Stark design.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #5 (1-18)
The same night (in Russia) as CD 4 and IM3 73 (7-12). Gennady gets data on the Crimson Dynamo from Iron Man, who is on
his way to a rescue, between pages 12 and 13 of IM3 73. Eavesdropping, Devereaux decides to changes his plan and ensure that
the armor makes it to Moscow to explode. Snow and coats in Russia. Full moon.
IRON MAN v3 #73 (13-18:5)
The same day as CD 5 (1-18). This segment must occur after A3 70 (16-20), as there is a "current vacancy at Secretary of
Defense," following the exposure of Dell Rusk as the Red Skull. The President gets Stark to meet his Chief of Staff at a Defcon
East technology trade show, held at a location (presumably the DC area) with green grass and trees. The Chief offers Tony a job
as a consultant with the Department of Defense and gives him a disk showing the Africa test. As Tony watches the video, he
answers a summons from Captain America to help rescue a Navy sub crippled by a piece of Cross equipment using a Stark
Thursday, May 1
CRIMSON DYNAMO #5 (19-22)
The day after CD 5 (1-18). Gennady tries to lure the armor as the military bear down on it.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #6 (1-17)
The same day as CD 5 (19-22). This segment occurs "one month" before CD 6 (18-21) and must occur before IM3 79 (7-21).
The energy of the Dynamo armor is siphoned safely and Gennady takes off wearing the armor.
IRON MAN v3 #73 (18:6-21)
One day shortly after IM3 73 (13-18). Iron Man confronts Defense Under-Secretary Sonny Burch of Cross Technologies at the
Pentagon, where we see green grass and trees. Stark learns that Burch is giving Stark-patented designs to contractors legally; the
tally "hit 300 on Monday."
UNCANNY X-MEN #424 (24:3-24:8)
One day, "days" after UX 424 (5-24). Nightcrawler thinks about the Church of Humanity's pope and reflects on his own abiding
faith. We see green trees and a butterfly at Xavier's.
UNCANNY X-MEN #425 (1-4)
One night. Havok has a romantic dream about Annie.
Friday, May 2
UNCANNY X-MEN #425 (5-17:1)
The day after UX 425 (1-4). Iceman refers to having turned to solid ice "the other day." At Alex's bachelor party, Alex comes to
grips with his feelings for Annie. Forge is there, but he and Xavier probably have no opportunity to meet, given the reference in
MYS 1. At Lorna's bachelorette party, Lorna ends up with a stripper dressed like Gambit, while Iceman hooks up with Annie.
Xavier is still nowhere to be seen. Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch appear at the parties (and at the wedding). Green grass and
trees at Xavier's.
IRON MAN v3 #73 (22)
Perhaps the day after IM3 73 (18-21). Stark asks the President for the Secretary of Defense position and the President agrees.
IRON MAN v3 #74 (1-13)
The same day as IM3 73 (22). The President requests his staff to prep Stark for his confirmation hearings and Iron Man
confronts Under-Secretary Burch about the use of his technology. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
X-STATIX #11 (18)
One day, "two weeks" after XS 11 (17). El Guapo cheats on his girlfriend and Doop takes pictures of the infidelity.
WEAPON X v2 #22 (19-22)
One day. It is "day 34," eleven days after WX2 22 (15-18). Under Colcord's direction, Jeffries has created an army of robots at
the old Weapon X complex, where we see bare trees and snow.
Saturday, May 3
UNCANNY X-MEN #425 (17:2-23)
The day after UX 425 (5-16). It may be more than just "a few weeks" before XX 40. Realizing his true feelings, Alex calls a
halt to the wedding ceremony. Professor X is among the attendees, as is Forge, but they may not have had a chance to hook up,
as in MYS 1, it's been a while since they've touched base. It also appears that Soldier X and Domino are here. Rogue and
Gambit are here, but the X-Treme team doesn't seem to be, and neither does Chamber. Magma cannot be one of those present,
as she is in a coma. Cannonball is presumably here, based on remarks he makes in XX 40. Green grass and trees at Xavier's,
where it is warm enough for an outdoor wedding; in fact, Alex remarks that "it's hot today." My placement of the wedding here
means that Alex's and Lorna's engagement lasted several months.
UNCANNY X-MEN #426
The same day as UX 425 (17-23). It is "a few months" after UX 419. Havok refers to UX 424 (5-24) as having occurred
"recently." He also notes that "the last few weeks have been so chaotic." The scorned Polaris attempts to kill Havok and Annie,
but she's taken out by Juggernaut. Havok and Annie discover that they've had a relationship, thanks to the mutant power of
Annie's son Carter. Alex and Annie jet to Paris for a day to turn their fantasy relationship to reality. This issue must occur
before EX3 28. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
SHE-HULK v3 #3 - FB (1-2)
One day, "weeks" before S-H3 3 (3). Bailey Briggs is killed.
ORDER v2 #3 - FB - FB (2:5)
One day during college baseball season. Playing for LSU, James Wa is safe sliding into home plate.
Sunday, May 4
Probably the day after UX 426, since Annie tells Paige about her and Alex's time in Paris the previous night. It must be much
more than "a few weeks" before X 163. Wolf-kid Nicholas Gleason cuts Havok open and "good" Alex is replaced by a "bad"
Alex, who attacks the mutants at Xavier's. The Exiles teleport in to stop bad Alex and the Dominant Species werewolves show
up. Warren admits his love for Paige and discovers that his uncle is responsible for the shenanigans at Lobo Tech. Wolverine
has no goatee and is wearing is tiger-stripe costume. We see green grass and trees and blowing leaves and Xavier's. It is warm
enough outdoors for short sleeves.
The same day as EX3 28. The Exiles and the X-Men battle both the bad Alex and the Dominant Species werewolves. Kurt notes
that the X-Men's jets are "all out," that they "wrecked a few lately," and that "Cyclops' group has something big going." Green
grass and trees in New York.
EXILES #30 (1-21)
The same day as EX3 29. The Exiles and X-Men defeat the werewolves. Nocturne sends bad Alex to the empty void whence he
came and good Alex returns. The Tallus gives the Exiles "four days" to stay with the X-Men, until EX3 30 (22-23). During that
four days, no other X-adventures are likely to occur. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
IRON MAN v3 #74 (14-18)
One day. After spending "all weekend" rehearsing for his Senate hearing, Stark returns to his New York headquarters and
divests himself of all compromising memberships and investments.
DAREDEVIL v2 #74 - FB (1-3)
One day. Matt and Milla are wed in a secret civil ceremony, with Foggy and Milla's friend in attendance. Matt is not sporting a
goatee here; he may have shaved it for the wedding. The date is noted as "May 4" in DD2 58, which is supposed to occur "about
four months" after this. A subpoena in DD2 61 notes the wedding date as "July 23," but this is probably the incorrect reference.
WOLVERINE: XISLE #1 (1-22)
One day. Logan takes Amiko to a museum, then they go to a carnival, where we see green grass and trees and a variety of dress,
from shorts and halter tops to jackets. There, Logan gets angry and frustrated, and when he loses control, he forces Amiko to run
away from him. Logan then drowns his sorrows at a bar.
Monday, May 5
WOLVERINE: XISLE #1 (23)
The day after W:X 1 (1-22). Logan is passed out on a little island, where he paid a helicopter pilot to drop him off at "sunrise."
WOLVERINE: XISLE #2
The same day as W:X 1 (23).
WOLVERINE: XISLE #3
The same day as W:X 2. Logan dreams of being in a bar and fighting a feral monster.
WOLVERINE: XISLE #4
The same day as W:X 3.
WOLVERINE: XISLE #5
The same day as W:X 4. Logan's introspective anger management ends and the pilot arrives to pick him up at "sunset."
IRON MAN v3 #74 (19-22)
The day after IM3 74 (14-18). Tony makes an inspiring nomination speech. Green grass and autumn colors in Washington, DC.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #4 (1)
One day. David tells his parents that he is thinking of taking another course - a "summer class" - at the University of Chicago.
Tuesday, May 6
IRON MAN v3 #75
Perhaps the day after IM3 74 (19-22) but not later, given that the announcement of Stark's nomination is fresh news. Warbird is
seen in her old costume with the Avengers, but this story cannot occur before she dons her new costume in A3 65, given that the
Secretary of Defense position is open following the exposure of the Red Skull in A3 70; by this point she's supposed to be
serving in the Department of Homeland Security; she may be visiting the Avengers, and may have donned the old costume for a
workout. Stark holds a press conference then heads to his Senate hearing. We see green trees and both green trees and autumn
colors in Washington, DC. Tony's reference to Stu Conrad being there to stop him "from making any serious gaffes - like
wearing white after Labor Day" doesn't necessarily mean that this story occurs after Labor Day.
IRON MAN v3 #76
The same day as IM3 75. As Stark faces the Senate, Rumiko phones him to tell him she's flying home "tomorrow." Burch tests
more Stark technology that's being rushed into production, including a stash of old Iron Man armors. One of the ultralights
being tested goes missing. After a day-long hearing, the Senate committee votes and rejects Stark's nomination as Secretary of
Defense by one vote. Green grass and trees in leaf in Washington, DC.
WOLVERINE: SNIKT #1
One night. While walking in New York City, Logan is approached by a girl named Fusa who demands that he help her save her
people from extinction by genocide. Both are pulled into a vortex of space and time. In a future earth, Logan defends himself
against cybernetic creatures called the Mandate.
WOLVERINE: SNIKT #2
The same night as W:S 1. Logan actually spends this issue in an alternate future.
WOLVERINE: SNIKT #3
The same night as W:S 2. Logan actually spends this issue in an alternate future.
WOLVERINE: SNIKT #4
The same night as W:S 3. Logan actually spends this issue in an alternate future.
WOLVERINE: SNIKT #5
The same night as W:S 4. Logan returns from the alternate future, presumably the same night as he left.
Wednesday, May 7
IRON MAN v3 #77
The day after IM3 76. A software glitch in Sonny Birch's pirated Stark technology causes an air disaster that threatens DC, and
Birch kills himself. As the Senate defeats Stark as nominee, Iron Man goes into action. A general notes that air traffic is heavy
with people "flying out for the holiday." Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
IRON MAN v3 #78 (1-18)
The same day as IM3 77. Iron Man saves Washington, DC, where we see green grass and trees. He sustains injuries in the
IRON MAN v3 #79 - FB (19:3)
One day, "two days" before IM3 79 (7-21). The Army finds the remains of an attacked convoy in Iraq.
Thursday, May 8
IRON MAN v3 #78 (19-21)
The day after IM3 78 (1-18). Recuperating as Bethesda Naval Hospital, Stark is told that the Senate reconvened and confirmed
him as Secretary of Defense.
EXILES #30 (22-23)
One day, "four days" after EX3 30 (1-21). The Exiles say their goodbyes to the X-Men, and Warren keeps Illyana's sword.
Green trees at Xavier's.
X-STATIX #12 (1-10)
One day. Dead Girl becomes a fashion model and faces protesters while her teammates start a mission on the India/Pakistan
border. Tike fetches Dead Girl for the mission and finds her at X-Statix' morgue, where they encounter a mortician with
necrophilia. Green grass and trees in California.
NEW X-MEN #134 (1-2)
One rainy night. Mutant designer Jumbo Carnation dies in Alphabet City. This event is noted as having occurred "the other
night" in X 135 (1-14).
Friday, May 9
IRON MAN v3 #79 (7-21)
One day. It is "two days" after IM3 79-FB (19) and "ten days" after IM3 79-FB (1-6), which is referred to as having occurred
"last week." Since Tony notes that "we don't have to worry about the Russians using that Crimson Dynamo unit," this segment
must occur after CD 6 (1-17). After "days" in the hospital, Tony Stark is sworn in as Secretary of Defense. Cap, Falcon,
Panther, Gyrich, and Warbird (in her new garb) attend the ceremony. Tony then spends his first day on the job and is given an
assignment by the president to go to Iraq to investigate strange attacks there. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
UNCANNY X-MEN #427
One day. Warren, Paige, and Jubilee visit Skin's grave in Los Angeles, where we see green grass and trees. It is long enough
after UX 423 for Angelo to have been buried. In fact, this story may occur after EX3 30 (22-23). The narration notes that this
story occurs "after a month that included the attacks by the Church" of Humanity and by Polaris - I interpret this to mean that
those events occurred in the same month and that this story occurs early the following month. Husk and Jubilee deal with the
exhumation and cremation of Angelo's body because of cemetery policy regarding mutants, while Archangel uses his healing
power to save some hospitalized kids.
NEW X-MEN #134 (3-22)
The day after X 134 (1-2). Logan is not at Xavier's. Reference is made to Jean being in Hong Kong and expected "home soon"
after being away for a while; however, it seems Jean may run into unexpected delays, as she doesn't make it back home until X
138 (16-23). We see green grass and autumn leaves in Westchester and there is a reference to it being "late summer"which must
X-STATIX #12 (11-22)
The day after XS 12 (1-10). The mortician's daughter goes on a shooting spree at her high school and ends up being shot dead
by police. Dead Girl kills the mortician to protect the daughter and X-Statix finishes its work in Asia. Green grass and trees in
Saturday, May 10
IRON MAN v3 #80
Probably the day after IM3 79 (7-21). Tony arrives in Iraq and leads a military unit to Hatra, where they encounter Vitriol.
IRON MAN v3 #81 (4-12)
The same day as IM3 80. Vitriol defeats Iron Man.
X-STATIX #13 (1-10)
One day, "years" after XS 13-FB (1/2:3). Henrietta Hunter's spirit inhabits a corpse and alters its appearance to look like
herself. This news immediately spreads and Spike Freeman gets X-Statix to fetch her for the team. Once at X-Statix
headquarters, the team makes her feel unwelcome and she bolts for Lacuna's TV talk show. Xavier is shown here standing, so
this story must occur before X 146 (and thus before X 142); it is likely before Xavier announces his intention to step down as
headmaster in X 138 (10-14).
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #9/2 - FB (6:6)
One day. Bobby Drake visits Skin's grave, perhaps after hearing that Warren, Paige, and Jubilee did so in UX 427.
SHE-HULK v3 #11 - FB (7:2)
One night, after A3 76. She-Hulk is out dancing with a one-night stand.
Sunday, May 11: Mothers' Day
IRON MAN v3 #81 (13-21)
The morning after IM3 81 (4-12). His armor slagged, Tony is thrown in with the rest of Vitriol's prisoners. After Vitriol leaves
to poison Iraq's rivers, Tony and crew are seemingly rescued by Force.
IRON MAN v3 #82 (1-19)
The same day as IM3 81 (13-21). It is "two years" after IM3 82-FB. The misinformed Force attacks Stark but then when the
truth surfaces, he joins Tony in stopping Vitriol's plan to poison the Tigris.
SHE-HULK v3 #11 - FB (7:3)
The morning after SH3 11-FB (7:2). This flashback occurs "around the time" of UX 435-436 and before S-H3 1 (3-11). She-
Hulk wakes up as Jen Walters in bed with her one-night stand.
X-STATIX #13 (11-17)
Perhaps the day after SX 13 (4-10). After a foiled attempt on Henrietta's life, Spike makes her part of X-Statix and the team
expresses its displeasure with Spike's unilateral decision. Spike then signs a deal with those who want Henrietta dead to set up a
battle between X-Statix and a group of super-powered "Euro-Trash."
NEW X-MEN #135 (1-14)
A school day at Xavier's. Xavier notes that he is opening the doors to the Institute to non-mutants "in three days time." Since X
138 labels Open Day a "Wednesday," this then must be a Sunday; X 121 establishes that Xavier's doesn't hold to traditional
human school practices, so there may very well be Sunday classes. Quentin Quire has "changed considerably in recent weeks."
Quire refers to the murder of Jumbo Carnation in X 134 (1-2) as having occurred "the other night." Glob Herman probably
appears here after UX 416. We see green grass and trees in Westchester and it's seasonable enough for Xorn's Special Class
(which is convening for the first time) to go camping. Because of its special nature, Xorn's class may not follow the traditional
semester. High on kick, Quentin Quire and his Omega Gang assault a group of mutant-hating youths.
Monday, May 12
IRON MAN v3 #82 (20-21)
The day after IM3 82 (1-19). It is "a few days" before IM3 83 (1-20). While wrapping up in Iraq, Stark gets an emergency
phone call from Stu in Washington, DC, where "it's got to be 3 a.m." Stark takes a plane out of Iraq to respond.
NEW X-MEN #135 (15-22)
The day after X 135 (1-14). Xavier discusses the Quire situation telepathically with his X-Men, including Jean, who is still in
Hong Kong, and Logan, who isn't necessarily at Xavier's. Xorn continues the camping trip with the Special Class. Green grass
X-STATIX #13 (18-21)
Perhaps the day after XS 13 (11-17). While in New York to attend the opening of the new X-Statix megastore, X-Statix are
attacked by the Euro-Trash and Spider-Man joins the fray. It appears to be warm in Manhattan.
X-STATIX #14 (1-19)
The same day as XS 13 (18-21). X-Statix and Spidey battle the Euro-Trash, who retreat inside the store and hold Henrietta
hostage. X-Statix leave the scene, but after Doop shows them how Spike Freeman's been manipulating them, the team ties him
up and returns to destroy the Euro-Trash and free Henrietta. Spidey kind of gets lost in the shuffle. At a follow-up press
conference, Henrietta announces she intends to use X-Statix to continue her charitable work and to change the team's costumes.
IRON FIST v4 #1 (1-3)
One night. One of the Shadow Thieves attacks and kills a man using an ATM in Sioux Falls, SD.
Tuesday, May 13
SECRET WAR #1 - FB (8-18)
One day, probably shortly after SECWAR 1/2. It is perhaps many months after SECWAR 1-FB-FB, during which time Killer
Shrike may have been in jail awaiting trial. It is "one year" before SECWAR 1 (4-7) and "a week" before SECWAR 2-FB (9-
19). SHIELD cuts a deal with Killer Shrike to take them to his weapons supplier, the Tinkerer, in Philadelphia. As he enters the
place, Shrike is killed. SHIELD storms the place only to find Tinkerer gone and computer files torched. Black Widow reports in
to notify Fury that she's found the Tinkerer in Latveria.
IRON FIST v4 #1 (4-16)
The day after IF 1 (1-3). At twilight in New York, Iron Fist fights a bunch of generic street thugs. When he dodges a bullet, it
goes through a window and kills a woman in a nearby apartment. Iron Fist defeats the criminals. "45 minutes later," the police
arrive. Iron Fist has learned about the dead woman. A Shadow Thief watches from a nearby rooftop. At 7:55 PM, Danny
phones Misty Knight, hoping to talk about the dead woman. She is going out, but they agree to meet for breakfast the next day.
"Meanwhile," in the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation, SD, Mary Blue Cloud is tormented by precognitive visions in her sleep.
NEW X-MEN #136 (1-21)
The night of the day after X 135 (15-22). The Omega Gang attacks a group of U-Men, and a squad of U-Men attacks the Special
Class, who are still on the camping trip. Beak and Angel have sex, apparently for the first time, given the dialog. Xorn defeats
the U-Men and the class is taken back to Xavier's school, where the Omega Gang capture Xavier. It is before a "Friday." Green
grass and trees.
Wednesday, May 14
NEW X-MEN #136 (22)
The morning after X 136 (1-21). It is "Open Day" at Xavier's, the day that Xavier has invited non-mutants to tour the school for
possible enrollment, perhaps for the semester following this. The Omega Gang begin their attack on the school. According to
XX 24, this issue occurs after XX 23. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
NEW X-MEN #137 (1-10)
The same day as X 136 (22). Wolverine is sporting a goatee once more. The Omega Gang cause chaos at the Institute. Green
grass and trees in Westchester.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (16)
The same day as X 137 (1-10). Laurie Collins hides as the Omega Gang's riot rages. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
NEW X-MEN #137 (11-22)
The same day as NM2 11-FB (16). The X-Men battle the Omega Gang. In the end, Quentin Quire is defeated and Sophie of the
Stepford Cuckoos is killed. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
NEW X-MEN #138 (1-6)
The same day as X 137. The X-Men deal with the aftermath of the Omega Gang's riot on a "Wednesday." Green grass and trees
IRON MAN v3 #83 - FB
One day. Tony Stark records a message for himself, outlining the mission to knock a rogue comet from hitting earth.
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (21:5-22:1)
One day. Still in Paris, Cannonball and Lila learn of the riot at Xavier's via the internet, so this segment may occur the same day
as X 137.
IRON FIST v4 #1 (17-22:2)
The day after IF 1 (4-16). It is "days" before IF 1 (22). Iron Fist meets with Misty for breakfast. As Misty was expecting, a
bank robbery takes place across the road. Iron Fist and Misty intervene. However, during the fight, Iron Fist decides that he no
longer cares, and wishes to retire as a hero. He abandons the fight and lets the villains go. Simultaneously, in South Dakota,
Mary is still dreaming.
SECRET WAR #1 - FB (19-23)
One day. SECWAR 1-FB (8-18) is referred to as having occurred earlier "this week." Lucia Von Bardas is noted as being the
U.S.-backed, elected prime minister of Latveria, so this segment must occur after the FF are driven from Latveria in FF 509 (1-
3); it may be shortly before FF3 508 (21-22). The Secretary of Defense is cited, but unnamed. Fury reports the Widow's intel to
the president, but the politicians insist on handling things diplomatically and Fury fears that such diplomacy will get people
killed. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (5-34)
Probably the same day as SECWAR 1-FB (19-23). Nick Fury selects operatives for his unsanctioned assault on Latveria. Tony
Stark is rejected as a choice. Mystique is working undercover for Xavier. Fury makes no mention of Logan's "Enemy of the
State" adventure, so this segment must occur sometime before W3 20 (1-12). Fury notes that Peter Parker is a teacher, that
Murdock has usurped the Kingpin, and that Jessica Jones is pregnant. Fury then composes a directive for Val Fontaine to gather
operatives for a Scorched Earth operation on Latveria in the event his first strike team fails. Hawkeye is among his choices, so
this segment must occur sometime before A 500. Fury notes that Sentry is at the Raft and that Carol Danvers works for DHS.
Then Fury accesses files on Jasper Sitwell, Jimmy Woo, Grizzly, and the Tinkerer.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (42)
Probably the same day as SECWAR:FFNF (5-34). Fury enters a file on Debbie Bertrand, the new Diamondback.
Thursday, May 15
SECRET WAR #2 - FB (1-8)
Probably the day after SECWAR 1-FB (19-23). It is a day that Matt Murdock's law office is open, "one year" before SECWAR
2 and during the "week" before SECWAR 2-FB (9-19). This flashback occurs after M.J. is back together with Peter in New
York; it's not clear if they're living together. Peter makes a reference to some kind of understanding he has with Fury not to be
in his civilian life; this probably indicates that this flashback occurs after SM&W 4. Cap's identity is publicly known, so this
segment must occur after CA4 6. Nick Fury recruits Steve Rogers, Matt Murdock, Luke Cage, and Peter Parker for a secret
IRON MAN v3 #83 (1-20)
Probably the day after IM3 83-FB. It is "a few days" after IM3 82 (20-21). Aboard a rocket, Iron Man diverts the comet and
defeats Titanium Man, who had tricked his way onto the mission.
NEW X-MEN #138 (7-9)
It is presumably a "Tuesday," six days after X 138 (1-6), but Emma mentions that Sophie died "yesterday," making this segment
the day after X 137, a Thursday. The remaining Stepford Cuckoos announce that they will depart Xavier's after the upcoming
prize-giving ceremony and walk out on Emma; this notice may be months in advance - the Cuckoos may intend to stick it out for
the rest of the school year, then transfer to an exclusive school that may not have openings until the summer. Emma notes that
she is "twenty-seven;" this contradicts her being sixteen in GENX -1 and would make her a teenager at the time of her debut in
UX 129. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
X-STATIX #14 (20-22)
One day. It is probably a few days after XS 14 (1-19) - long enough for Henrietta to get lots of fan mail, design new costumes,
and raise awareness and money for various causes, but no too long, as Spike Freeman is still trussed up in his bathrobe. With
Henrietta's Q-rating outstripping the rest of the team and demands for her to become team leader, X-Statix decide that she must
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (22:2)
One day. Cannonball learns that things with the X-Treme team are "serious," though I'm not sure what the exact reference is.
FANTASTIC FOUR #509 (4-6)
One day, "one week" before FF 509 (7-15), and thus five weeks after FF 509 (1-3). Reed comes up with an idea about how to
revive the deceased Thing.
Friday, May 16
IRON MAN v3 #83 (21)
The morning after IM3 83 (1-20). This segment must occur before CD 6 (18-21), M/KSM 3, CA4 27, IM3 86-FB (17-19), and
IM3 87-FB (9-13), and probably before DD2 61 (3-5). Stark returns to earth and is told he must keep the space mission secret.
UNCANNY X-MEN #429
One day. It must be more than "a few weeks" after UX 422. It is "some time" after UX 406 (1-21). One "early morning,"
Nightcrawler inexplicably jets off from Westchester and as Xavier prepares to send a team after him, he has an altercation with
Juggernaut and a restrained Polaris spouts off at Annie. "Several hours" later, the X-Men arrive at Isla des Demonas, where they
find Kurt participating in a strange ritual. We see a full moon and green grass and trees at Xavier's and bathing suit weather off
UNCANNY X-MEN #430
The same day as UX 429. It must be more than "a few weeks" after UX 422. Sammy is abused by his father at his home in
Vancouver, where we see green trees. Xorn wants to put Carter in his special class (and reveals some Magneto-like thoughts).
Xavier and Annie explore Lorna's mind to find the reason for her recent behavior. The X-Men are attacked by demonic creatures
as they try to rescue Kurt from Isla des Demonas, Iceman is blown to bits, and the group is engulfed in a powerful telepathic
UNCANNY X-MEN #431
The same day as UX 429. Polaris shows Xavier and Annie her experience in Genosha. Juggernaut and Northstar jet to
Vancouver (where we see green trees) to see Sammy. The X-Men battle demon-like creatures. Mystique emerges from Abyss'
dimensional hole, having been trapped in there since UX 406.
UNCANNY X-MEN #432
The same day as UX 431. Given Xorn has not yet revealed is identity in UX 430 and Xavier is still walking here, this issue must
occur before X 146; indeed, since Scott is still with the X-Men, this issue must occur before X 139 (1-20).
UNCANNY X-MEN #433
The same day as UX 432. Juggernaut's battle with Alpha Flight results in the accidental injury of Sammy's mother.
Nightcrawler learns from Azazel the truth behind his teleportation power, and when Xavier, Annie, and Lorna arrive at La Isla
des Demonas to search for Carter, Polaris opens a portal to Azazel's dimension. Green trees in Vancouver.
UNCANNY X-MEN #434
The same day as UX 433. It is "three days" before UX 435 (1-18). Seeing what his battle has wrought, Juggernaut gives up the
fight with Alpha Flight. Iceman re-forms, Kurt battles Azazel, and the X-Men, Carter, Mystique, Abyss, and Kiwi Black escape
from Azazel's dimension, with Polaris' help. Given Xorn has not yet revealed is identity in UX 430 and Xavier is still walking
there, this issue must occur before X 146; indeed, since Scott is still with the X-Men in UX 429, this issue must occur before X
139 (1-20). Mystique must appear here before MYS 1 (9-23) and Jubilee is probably here before XU2 2/2 (1-10). Green grass
and trees in Vancouver and Westchester.
Saturday, May 17
IRON FIST v4 #2 - FB
One day, just before IF 1 (22). It is "three months" before IF 2. Luke Cage comes round to say goodbye before Danny leaves
IRON FIST v4 #1 (22:3-22:6)
One day, "days" after IF 1 (17-22). Danny stands in his apartment. All his belongings are in crates. He has set out an envelope
addressed to Rand-Meachum, an envelope to Misty, and his costume.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #26 - FB
One day, "a few months" after CA4 25 (14-21). Cap's private plane is attacked near Washington, DC and Steve makes an
emergency landing in the reflecting pool of the National Mall. It is a "Sunday" in "May," but the reference to "2004" must be
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #26
The same day as CA4 26-FB. In Washington, Cap visits Senator Paley, who is campaigning for president. Paley inquires about
possible political fallout associated with Cap's partnership with the teenaged Bucky in WWII. This issue occurs before a time in
which Paley has Cap call Secretary of Defense Stark to release Hedayat, as noted in CA4 27.
X-TREME X-MEN #24 (22:3-23)
One day. Cannonball calls Storm to Paris, where we see green trees. Storm wears the miniskirt we saw in XX 23. He accepts
her offer to join the X-Treme team.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #2/2 (1-10)
One rainy day, "two days" before XU2 2/2 (11). Jubilee probably appears here after UX 434. The Xavier Institute is still
standing and Cyclops is there, so this segment must occur before X 138 (16-23). In an attempt to help a friend making trouble in
a local mall, Jubilee attacks local police who are called in. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
X-STATIX #15 (3-11)
One day, "some years" after XS 15-FB (1-2). As random sniper attacks claim lives throughout the country, Henrietta Hunter
takes a break in the Caribbean "after all the chat-shows and merchandising deals." X-Statix appear on the scene to kill her, but
Lacuna makes the team think twice about that course of action. Green trees in Florida.
NEW X-MEN v2 #34 - FB
One day, "not too long" before NX 34. This story must occur before NX 1. As her dad watches, Cessily Kincaid's mutant powers manifest themselves. Green grass and trees in Oregon.
Sunday, May 18
X-STATIX #15 (12-18)
Perhaps the day after XS 15 (3-11). X-Statix hope to rid themselves of Henrietta while on a mission in Afghanistan, but Phat
ends up saving her life and El Guapo loses his legs.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #15
One day. Captain Marvel appears before an intergalactic council convened for the purpose of dealing with his threat. After
Marvel destroys the assembled armadas, the Titans arrive, including what appears to be his dead mother Elysius.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #16
The same day as CM6 15. After being caught off guard by Elysius, Marvel retreats, encounters Epiphany, resurrects Rick, and
heads for Titan, where his sister Phyla awaits.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #17
The same day as CM6 16. Genis fights Phyla, who claims the role of Captain Marvel. Genis determines that she and Elysius are
from an alternate timeline and when he sends them back to that timeline, he gets roped along for the trip.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #18
The same day as CM6 17. Marvel finds himself in Nth Space with Eros, Phyla, and Elysius, who explains Marvel's disruptions
of reality and his own psyche. There, Marvel apparently comes to his senses, and upon returning to Titan "seconds" after he left,
Marvel swears to do good. Satisfied that the universe is safe, Shi'ar, Kree, and Skrull council members leave Titan.
Monday, May 19
X-STATIX #15 (19-20)
Perhaps the day after XS 15 (12-18). The random shootings continue and Henrietta decides to stop the killing.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #2/2 (11)
One day, "two days" after XU2 2/2 (1-10). At the mall, Jubilee is dissed by a boy because she's a mutant. Some folks are seen
wearing jackets and others aren't.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #1 - FB (20-22)
One day, "four weeks" before A/TB 1 (11-19). Carol is DHS liaison here and in her new costume; this flashback must occur
after A3 70 (16-20). Cap, Wasp, and Warbird visit Abe Jenkins at a prison in Illinois to ask him for help in exposing Zemo's
true scheme. Songbird is noted as being a mole.
UNCANNY X-MEN #435 (1-18)
One day, "three days" after UX 434. This segment occurs after A 76. Among the recent events Xavier mentions in this issue is
"a student uprising," so this story must occur after X 138 (1-6). Juggernaut is incarcerated at a high-tech Canadian facility and
"She-Hulk" (an imposter Jen Walters from Earth A) reviews his case as his attorney. Alpha Jen apparently isn't aware of the mass destruction of property caused by her Earth-616 counterpart in A3 73-75, given that she holds that kind of destruction against Juggernaut. As counsel confers with Xavier (sans wheelchair), Kurt, Warren, Bobby, and Paige, the Rhino (being subjected to some kind of experiment here sometime after his apprehension in PPTSS2 50) attempts to bust out of the facility. In the melee that ensues, Cain is accidentally released from his bonds and battles and defeats Rhino, then he passes up an opportunity to flee and instead surrenders to a facility guard. Green grass and trees in Vancouver.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #1 (1:1-1:3)
One night. Deadpool watches TV between "11:28 pm" and "11:36 pm." Full moon.
Tuesday, May 20
CABLE & DEADPOOL #1 (1:4)
The morning after C&DP 1 (1:1-1:3). Deadpool watches more TV at "7:12 am."
UNCANNY X-MEN #435 (19-20)
Probably the day after UX 435 (1-18), judging by the fact that people from pages 1-18 are now wearing different clothes. Cain's
surrender and the situation with the Rhino result in a reduced sentence for Cain and his release from the Canadian facility. Cain
and the Jennifer Walters from Earth A become friendly.
X-STATIX #15 (21-22)
Perhaps the day after XS 15 (19-20). At a press conference, Henrietta announces that she will stop the random killings by
accepting the position of Secretary of Homeland Defense. Green trees in Washington, DC.
RUNAWAYS v2 #14 - FB (11-16)
One day, "eighteen months" before RUN2 14 and "a few months" before RUN2 14-FB (17-18). It is probably shortly before
RUN 1. Alex plays the Marvel Superheroes MMORPG with his circle of online friends but is interrupted by his parents.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #1 (1:5-2:2)
The same evening as C&DP 1 (1:4). Deadpool watches more TV between "6:42 pm" and "7:38 pm."
Wednesday, May 21
UNCANNY X-MEN #435 (21-23)
The morning after UX 435 (19-20). Cain and the ersatz Jen from Earth A are in bed after having spent the night together, presumably in Vancouver, where we see green grass and trees. A figure in Juggernaut gear appears outside their room.
UNCANNY X-MEN #436
The same day as UX 435 (21-23). This story occurs "around the time" of S-H3 11-FB (7:3). Since the ersatz She-Hulk does not appear here as Jennifer Walters when being an attorney, this story must occur before S-H3 1 (3-11). Cain and a disguised Jen Walters from Earth A battle the ersatz Juggernaut, who turns out to be the animal-torturing boy from XU 44. Attorneys debate the fate of Juggernaut and when Sammy Pare's mother testifies on Cain's behalf, Juggernaut's sentence is reduced and he is extradited. Because Xavier is without his wheelchair here, and because the list of things he relates as overwhelming in UX 435 does not include Magneto's destruction of the school, this story must occur before X 142. Green grass and trees in Vancouver.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #1 (2:3-21)
The day after C&DP 1 (1-2). It may be a weekday, since "The New Adventures of Lois & Clark" is on TNN. Cable refers a
German mutant to Charles Xavier at the X-Corporation. The One World Church invites Deadpool to Paris for a high-paying gig.
He flies from New York to Paris, where we see green grass, warm weather, and autumn colors (which may be topical). He's
asked to retrieve a toxin, the Facade Virus, from a German pharmaceutical facility. Deadpool arrives at the facility, only to meet
Cable, who's received some intel from Irene Merryweather.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #2 (1-19)
The same day as C&DP 1 (2-21). It must be more than just "a few days" before C&DP 4. Nathan takes down would-be student
anarchists who stole the Facade Virus, but Wade takes the bioweapon from weakened Nathan. We see snow (topical) and bare
and green trees in Frankfurt.
SECRET WAR #2 - FB (9-13)
One day during the "week" after SECWAR 2-FB (1-8). It is "a week" after SECWAR 1-FB (8-18). According to
SECWAR:FFNF (3:1), this segment occurs on a "Friday." Fury's recruits, joined by Logan and Daisy Johnson, board a plane to
The same day as SECWAR 2-FB (9-13). According to SECWAR:FFNF (36-39), Parker and Logan have a confrontation on the
SECRET WAR #2 - FB (14-19)
The same day as BTS. It is "six months" before SECWAR:FFNF (39-40). In Latveria, Fury's recruits meet up with Fury and
Black Widow. Fury explains that Latveria is funding a bunch of tech-themed villains who are planning a huge act of terrorism
and that the team is to overthrow Latveria's government. We see people wearing jackets.
SECRET WAR #5 - FB - FB (17-22:1, 23/24:1, 23/24:3-23/24:5)
The same day as SECWAR 2-FB (14-19). It is exactly "one year" before SECWAR 5-FB. Fury's strike team battles Von
Barda's technologically based allies and on Fury's command, Daisy Johnson destroys Von Doom's castle, presumably
assassinating Von Bardas. The heroes are disturbed and disgusted by this action.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (35-38)
The same day as SECWAR 2-FB (9-19). SHIELD agents discuss the plane trip they took with Fury's strike team.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (3:1)
One day shortly after SECWAR 2-FB (9-19). Daily Bugle staffer Julie Slott reports on Dazzler at Club M, on Pym and Wasp at
the restaurant opening, and on Steve Rogers and Luke Cage leaving on a plane for Latveria.
Thursday, May 22
CABLE & DEADPOOL #2 (20-21)
The day after C&DP 2 (1-19). It is "three days" before C&DP 3 (1-11). Wade delivers the Facade Virus to the One World
Church in France, where we see autumn leaves, which may be topical.
NEW X-MEN #138 (10-14)
A "Thursday." Xorn helps Quentin Quire cast off his physical body and achieve another plane of existence; it is not known how
long Quire may have spent at Xavier's in a catatonic state; it is presumed that this is the Thursday of the week following X 138
(7-9), but isn't necessarily so. Xavier notes that "the school will be closing for the summer in exactly six days" - this may be the
date that all students who attend Xavier's during the regular academic year should be gone; as we see in NM2, the school does
remain open for relatively few students in the summer. He also notes that after the break, he will step down as headmaster.
Green grass and trees in Westchester.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #57 (1-7)
One school day. Peter notes that it is getting "closer to summer vacation" and that he only works as a teacher "every Tuesday
and Thursday"; the latter reference may be just to his schedule for this semester, not for his entire teaching job to this point -
regardless, this implies that it is either Tuesday or Thursday. Peter's birthday is "in a day or two." We see a lightning storm at
FANTASTIC FOUR #509 (7-15:4)
One day. It is "one week" after FF 509 (4-6) and "six weeks" after FF 509 (1-3). With FF assets frozen, Johnny has a job as an
auto mechanic in Fairfield, CT and Sue and the kids are staying with Alicia, who, overcome with grief over Ben's death, makes
sculpture after sculpture of the Thing. Reed phones Sue to tell her he's sold all his patents to have the charges against the FF
dropped. He also notes that Johnny hasn't spoken to him since Ben died and that he's learned his lesson about having private
agendas. He intends to bring Ben back to life.
FANTASTIC FOUR #508 (21-22:3)
The same day as FF 509 (7-15). It is "six weeks" after FF 508 (1-20). The TV news reports that Latveria is enjoying a
democratic regime (with Lucia Von Bardas as a hastily elected prime minister, as revealed in SECWAR 1-FB). Sue listens to
Reed's voice mail message.
FANTASTIC FOUR #508 (22:4) ~ FANTASTIC FOUR #509 (15:5-15:6)
The same day as FF 508 (21-22). Sue finishes listening to the message.
FANTASTIC FOUR #508 (22:5)
The same day as FF 508 (22:4). Sue holds the phone.
FANTASTIC FOUR #509 (15:7-21)
The same day as FF 509 (22:5). Sue and Johnny head to Reed's place, where they discover that Reed has taken Ben's body from
the military and detected a faint brainwave. Reed intends find Ben by using the machine Dr. Doom originally designed to reach
his mother in the afterlife. The three agree to venture to the afterlife.
FANTASTIC FOUR #510
The same day as FF 509 (15-21). Reed, Sue, and Johnny find Ben at the gates of heaven with his deceased brother Daniel,
unable to enter because of a locked door built by Reed.
FANTASTIC FOUR #511
The same day as FF 510. This story occurs before S-H3 3 (5-10) and must occur before TB2 2 (10-22). This story may occur
before ASM 500 and DD2 56-FB (10-22), occasions in which Reed is seen without a scarred face, and before HT 12, in which
Ben is alive and well. The FF convince Ben not to give up on life. They meet a Jack Kirby manifestation of God, who erases
Reed's disfiguration and sends the team back home, with Ben back to full health.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #1
One night. Sage breaks into the New York office of a former shareholder in the Hellfire Club to retrieve a dossier about her.
Green trees in New York. Full moon.
Friday, May 23
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #57 (8-23)
The rainy early morning after ASM2 57 (1-7). Spider-Man joins the Fantastic Four (Reed's and Sue's costumes are mismatched
color-wise, but they both conform to the design introduced in FF3 40), Iron Man (in an armor not seen elsewhere), and Thor (in
classic costume, so after T2 79 (21-24), given that he appears in PPTSS2 53 during the Asgard-over-Manhattan storyline) in a
battle with the Mindless Ones in Manhattan. Dr. Strange shows up too late to prevent the return of Dormammu.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #58 (1-10)
The same early morning as ASM2 57. As the heroes battle the Mindless Ones, Strange attempts to destroy Dormammu.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #503 - FB (1-2:2)
The same early morning as ASM2 58 (1-10). A woman gets caught in the melee.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #58 (11)
The same early morning as ASM 503-FB (1-2). Spidey finds himself in the middle of the Strange-Dormammu battle and an
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #503 - FB (2:4-3)
The same early morning as ASM2 58 (11). Morwen takes over the woman's body.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN v2 #58 (12-22)
The same early morning as ASM 503-FB (2-4). Strange and Spidey end up in a plane outside of time and space and Spidey
witnesses scenes from the past and future.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #500
The same day as ASM2 58. Led by Strange, Spidey battles his way through time to end up moments before the arrival of
Dormammu and saves the day, helping the heroes drive the Mindless Ones back to their dimension. Reed is not disfigured, so
this story may occur after FF 511. Cyclops probably appears here before X 138 (16-23). It is Peter's birthday (so this story
should occur at the same time of year as S-M 21), and Strange gives him a present - five minutes to speak to Uncle Ben, who's
been snatched out of time. We see a full moon, and M.J. mentions the "moonlight" specifically.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #1 (10-25)
One school day. Rejected on her sixteenth birthday by her father and her classmates, Sofia Mantega destroys one of her father's
supermarkets and is thrown in jail. Dani Moonstar shows up to take Sofia to Xavier's, which is publicly known as a school for
mutants with "bad publicity," a clue that this segment occurs after the riot in X 138 (1-6). It is clear that Dani does not live at
Xavier's, but rather in Colorado. It is a "Friday" in "May." We see green grass and trees in Boulder.
NEW X-MEN #138 (15)
The day after X 138 (10-14), a "Friday." Emma Frost goes clothes shopping with Angel. According to X 140, this segment
occurs "a few days" before X 139 (21-22).
X-TREME X-MEN #32 - FB (20:2-20:3)
One night. Marie D'ancanto rides in a car with her family. Short sleeves and shorts in southern California.
X-TREME X-MEN #31 (1-2)
The same night as XX 32-FB (20). In Los Angeles, Cutter, Porous, Dervish and company cause a car accident in which a girl
Marie D'ancanto is seriously injured and her family killed. Mention is made of "the state championship" for cheerleading.
Saturday, May 24
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #501 - FB - FB (7)
One morning. Peter reads the newspaper in bed and M.J. brings him coffee.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #501 - FB (1:2-1:4, 2:2-2:5, 3:1-4:1)
The same day as ASM 501-FB-FB. It must be the day after ASM 500, as we see a Daily Bugle headline blaming Spider-Man for
the "Times [Square] Horr[or]" of ASM 500. Peter leaves home to play Spidey and May goes for a walk. A reference is made to
Thor being "God," but the context is uncertain.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #501 - FB - FB (11:2-12:3)
The same day as ASM 501-FB (3-4). Spidey encounters the Shaker robbing a bank. It is a "Saturday."
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #501 - FB (4:2-6, 8-11:1, 12:4-13, 14:5-19)
The same day as ASM 501-FB-FB (11-12). Spidey defeats the Shaker and May gets a cell phone. It is "Saturday."
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #501
The same day as ASM 501-FB. May talks about the day's events and her coping with Peter's super-hero life in front of her
husband's grave (which curiously looks different from previous depictions). It is "Saturday." We see green grass in New York,
but the bare trees, falling leaves, and the cold weather suggested by May's coat and hat must be topical.
X-TREME X-MEN #31 (3-4)
Probably the day after XX 31 (1-2). A Genoshan survivor slays a group of black marketeers in east Africa, and Marie D'ancanto
recovers in a Los Angeles hospital.
The FF may hold their annual open house on this day (see FOUR 30).
NEW X-MEN #138 (16-23)
The day after X 138 (15), a "Saturday." Given Scott's presence in WX 15, W/CA 4 (17-21), and XU2 2/2 (1-10), those stories
must occur before this segment. We see a prize-giving ceremony at Xavier's - this is a year-end ceremony that probably occurs
between the end of the spring session and the beginning of the summer session shown in NM2 2. Angel informs Beak that she's
pregnant with his child; this revelation so soon after their apparent first sexual encounter in X 136 (1-21) is an indication that
Angel's physiology is radically different from a normal human's; this is confirmed by Beak's statement in X 141 that "there is a
life cycle of, like, only five days between the sex and the birth," but this doesn't mean that Angel's pregnancy lasts only that long
- it can't be less than five days after X 136 (1-21), given the other temporal references in this run of issues. That night, Jean
Grey returns to Xavier's with Dust, who she may have retrieved after Dust spent some time in India after X 133. Jean finds Scott
and Emma in a compromising situation; this segment probably occurs after ASM 500. That Jean is fetching mutants for Xavier's
may be a clue that this segment occurs before NM2 2, in which Dani gets the job of recruiter. Green grass and trees in
NEW X-MEN #139 (1-20)
The same night as X 138 (16-23). An angry Jean mucks around with Emma's mind and the X-Men grow concerned about Jean's
Phoenix power. Cyclops takes off (and probably doesn't return until just before NM2 10). The Stepford Cuckoos state that
"school is over for the summer," implying that, while the school itself is to close on the upcoming Wednesday, classes are
already over. We see green grass and trees at Xavier's.
Sunday, May 25
CABLE & DEADPOOL #3 (1-11:3)
One day, "three days" after C&DP 2 (20-21). It is a "few days" before C&DP 3 (11-15). Recuperating in Switzerland, Nathan is
visited by Xavier, who is in his Morrison outfit and is standing, so this story must occur before his appearance in X 146, which
leads to Xavier's crippling. In France, the One World Church injects Wade with the Facade Virus. Snow and bare trees in the
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1
One day. J. Jonah Jameson takes a nap during a "holiday office party" and has a Dickensian dream. Peter Parker is present as a
"freelancer" for the Bugle. Norman Osborn shows up in the dream in his Green Goblin costume, but this isn't necessarily an
indication that this story occurs after PULSE 5 (22) - JJJ had made the connection before, if for no other reason than Ben Urich's
published speculation about it. Spider-Man and the Avengers - Cap, Iron Man, Thor (clean-shaven and in classic costume),
Wasp, Yellowjacket, and Hawkeye - battle the Wrecker, the real Thunderball, and Bulldozer, who are subdued and handed over
to police. Many references to "Christmas," but character chronologies force me to place this around Memorial Day.
One day, "four days" before RUN 10. This story probably occurs shortly after RUN2 14-FB (11-16) and exactly a year after
RUN 17-FB (4). The Runaways gather for the party and see their parents as the Pride. Karolina is sent away with Molly and the
others see the Pride kill a hooker.
RUNAWAYS #2 (1-11)
The same day as RUN 1. The Runaways conceal everything from Molly and agree to meet up again overnight. Alex has been
playing the computer game "all day," and Molly is expecting to go to school the next day, so it's Sunday. The full moon is
inconsistent with crescent moons shown in this storyline and may be inaccurate.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #502 (1-17)
One day. It must be more than "five, six years" after ASM 502-FB (12:2-12:5). Peter and M.J. have brunch to chat about their
relationship and M.J.'s intention to return to modeling, so this segment must occur shortly before they resume the conversation in
ASM 505-FB. Tailor Leo Zelinsky finishes a job for Killshot and overhears the hitman planning to kill the D.A. "tomorrow."
That night, Zelinsky reports this to Spidey. The bare trees in New York must be topical.
Monday, May 26: Memorial Day
RUNAWAYS #2 (12-23)
Early the morning after RUN 2 (1-11). At 1:03 AM at the Griffith Observatory, the Runaways (minus Molly) meet up to discuss
what to do. By a majority they vote to call the police, but the officer who takes the call does not believe them. At 2 AM, they
are on the Santa Monica freeway and at 2:45 AM they arrive at the Yorkes' house and find a hidden compartment in the
basement containing Gertrude's trained velociraptor.
The same early morning as RUN 2 (12-23). The Runaways continue to deal with the raptor, and then head along the Ventura
freeway to Karolina's house. They arrive there at 4:15 AM. Searching the Dean's papers, they find a message which leads
Karolina to remove the MedAlert bracelet that has been suppressing her powers. Meanwhile, the Wilders are phoned by a
corrupt police officer to whom Alex's call has been reported.
The same early morning as RUN 3. The Wilders are afraid to warn the other members of the Pride. Meanwhile, the Runaways
ponder how to save Molly. They decide to head to Chase's home, which is en route. The Runaways arrive at 5 AM and go into
the Steins' workshop, where they find various Kirbytech; Chase finds his Fistigons. The Steins and the Minorus interrupt and
attack. Nico absorbs the Staff of One when her mother attacks her. With the raptor's aid, the Runaways escape and head for the
San Bernardino Freeway. The Yorkes and Hayes phone, and threaten to hurt Molly if the Runaways do not return home.
The same early morning as RUN 4. Leslie Dean returns to Malibu and joins the Yorkes and Steins. At 6:30 AM, the Runaways
attack the home, and the Staff emerges from Nico to give her her powers. When Nico reaches Molly, Molly's mutant powers
emerge. Green grass and trees in California. Full moon.
The same morning as RUN 5. It is "two days" before RUN 7 (1-12). Molly is confused but sees off Mrs. Dean. The Runaways
flee into downtown LA. There, they learn that Mr. Wilder controls the police and media, so there is no point going to the
authorities. While the Pride find a note from an anonymous Runaway professing loyalty, the Runaways head to an abandoned
cave, the Hostel, which is going to be their base. They arrive at 10:30 AM. The Runaways assign themselves codenames:
Arsenic (Gertrude), Old Lace (her raptor), Lucy in the Sky (Karolina), Sister Grimm (Nico), Neo (Chase), and Bruiser (Molly).
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #502 (18-22)
The day after ASM 502 (1-17). Spidey prevents Killshot from shooting the D.A. at a Boys Club awards ceremony. Killshot
escapes and, concluding that Zelinsky snitched on him, tries to kill the tailor, but Spidey subdues the hitman. Zelinsky gives
Spidey a design for a new costume.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #3 (11:4)
Probably the day after C&DP 3 (1-11). Nathan spies on the One World Church.
ALIAS #24 (1-16)
One day. Ant-Man is seen in the new costume shown in A3 65, so this segment must occur after the old costume's last
appearance in A3 63; the new costume must make its first chronological appearance here. Matt Murdock tries to get Jessica to
help Ka-Zar find Zabu, but she refuses; Matt is not sporting a goatee here during a period when he should have one, so he may
have shaved it then decided to regrow it. Jessica then confronts Warbird about referring a potential client to her since that client
wants to find information about the Purple Man. Cap appears too. Green grass and trees in New York.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #2 (1-20:1)
One day shortly after NM2 1 (10-25) - at least long enough for a train ride from Colorado to New York; it is unlikely that NM2 1
(10-25) occurred "yesterday," as noted in this issue. NM2 2-FB is noted as having occurred "last year." This story occurs after
NM2 11-FB (16), and so after the riot at Xavier's. Dani and Sofia arrive at Xavier's, where they meet Professor X, who notes
that "it is the start of the summer session" and that some students "have gone home for the summer." This is an indication that
this issue occurs after the prize-giving ceremony in X 138 (16-23). The fact that some students remain for classes appears to
contradict the statement in X 138 (10-14) that the school would close for the summer. Xavier is still here, apparently before the
time he planned to leave the school, as noted in X 138 (10-14). Dani is no longer a teenager, but "it wasn't long ago" that she
was. Dani arranges for Sofia to room with Laurie Collins. Northstar appears here. Green grass and trees and jacket weather at
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (18:1)
The same day as NM2 2 (1-20). Laurie finds Sofia unpacking in her room.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #2 (20:2-22)
The same day as NM2 11-FB (18:1). Laurie meets Sofia. Dani agrees to be Xavier's recruiter - presumably after Jean's
assumption of that role through X 138 (16-23).
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #503
One night shortly after ASM 500. Asgard is in space, not above Manhattan, and Loki mentions "the Allfather" (Odin) as if he
were alive. Morwen finally manages to take command of the woman in her sleep and and certain gods and elder beings detect
her presence. Loki heads to earth to investigate. Morwen meets up with Spidey and gives him "a night to decide" on a choice: to
let her thank him for setting her free or be destroyed. Spidey goes to Strange for help, but he has disappeared and Loki offers to
assist Spidey in defeating her. Spidey notes that his "senses started going crazy the night she manifested" (meaning the time of
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #504 (1-18)
The same night as ASM 503. The woman possessed by Morwen is revealed to be Tess Black, a daughter of Loki. Spidey and
Loki team up to drive Morwen from Tess.
Tuesday, May 27
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #504 (19-22)
The day after ASM 504 (1-18). This story probably occurs before TP:RTR. Spidey does some checking on Morwen and Tess at
the library. He runs into Loki, who gives him a rune with which he can summon him. Spidey agrees to look after Tess. We see
bare trees in New York.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #3 (11:5)
Probably the day after C&DP 3 (11:4). Nathan continues to spy on the One World Church.
SHE-HULK v3 #2 - FB
One day, "a couple weeks" before S-H3 2 (1-13). Dan Jermain becomes Danger Man in an industrial accident at Roxxon.
One day. This scene likely occurs after IM3 83 (21). During the "last time" Cap and Senator Paley talk before CA4 27, Paley
has Cap call Secretary of State Stark to release Fernand Hedayat, whose charges from CA4 21-25 have been dismissed, but who's
still being held by terms of the Patriot Act.
RUNAWAYS SAGA - FB (3-8)
One day, shortly after RUN 6. Molly writes in her diary about her recent adventures with the Runaways.
NEW X-MEN #139 (21-22)
One night. According to X 140, this segment occurs "a few days" after X 138 (15). Beast finds Emma's diamond body smashed
Wednesday, May 28
NEW X-MEN #140 (1-14)
The day after X 139 (21-22). It is sometime after XX 23 (17-22). "Summer vacation is cancelled until further notice," while
Bishop and Sage are called in to investigate Emma Frost's "murder." That summer vacation reference may be for the benefit of
those students who haven't yet left for the summer; I have summer classes actually having just started (in NM2 2) by this time.
Late this day, the Stepford Cuckoos note that "school ought to have closed for summer" by now (at least for those who don't take
summer classes), so it is likely that this is the day the school was scheduled to close, six days after X 138 (10-14). Scott is still
absent and Nightcrawler is here. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #3 (11:6-15)
Probably the day after C&DP 3 (11:5). It is a "few days" after C&DP 3 (1-11) and "days" before C&DP 3 (16-21). Nathan's
presence among the One World Church is exposed and he agrees to stay and see more.
ALIAS #24 (17-23)
One day, shortly after ALIAS 24 (1-16). Jessica meets with the families of the Purple Man's victims and agrees to help them get
an admission of culpability from him. Green grass and trees.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #505 - FB
One day, shortly after ASM2 502 (1-17). It is "two weeks" before ASM 505 (1-9). Peter and M.J. resume their conversation
about M.J.'s getting back to her career, so this flashback must occur before the photo shoot mentioned in PPTSS2 11. We see
green grass, long sleeves but no coats, and what appear to be autumn colors on trees, which may be topical.
IRON MAN v3 #86 - FB (17:5-19)
One day, "several months" before IM3 86. Since Stark is Secretary of State here, this flashback must occur after IM3 83 (21).
At a Washington soiree, Tony apologizes to Rumiko for not being around much.
RUNAWAYS #7 (1-12)
One night, "two days" after RUN 6. At the Minoru residence at 10:55 PM, the Pride discuss the Runaways' disappearance. At
the Hostel at 11 PM, the Runaways despatch Sister Grimm, Lucy in the Sky, Alex, and Talkback to go into town and get food
with their remaining money. Green trees.
Thursday, May 29
RUNAWAYS #7 (13-22)
The early morning after RUN 7 (1-12). At 1:39 AM in Los Feliz, California, Alex Wilder, Sister Grimm, Lucy in the Sky, and
Talkback arrive at the convenience store to find that it's being robbed. The Runaways stop the robbery and pick up Topher, who
claims to be the victim of evil parents.
The same early morning as RUN 7 (13-22). Alex Wilder, Lucy in the Sky, Sister Grimm, and Talkback invite Topher to return
with them to the Hostel. Topher accepts. The Runaways leave in Talkback's van, and shake off the police who give chase. At
2:13 AM, the Wilders have been e-mailed security camera footage of the Runaways in the store, by a contact in the police. The
Wilders agree that if the kids are going to play super-hero, it is particularly important to find them before they take on somebody
out of their league. At 2:24 AM, Topher and the four Runaways arrive back at the Hostel and meet the other Runaways.
Talkback and Arsenic aren't entirely happy about Topher, and Old Lace attacks him on sight, before being subdued by Bruiser.
Sister Grimm talks with Topher in her room. Alex watches through a spyhole and sees them kissing.
The same early morning as RUN 8. At 2:35 AM, Alex interrupts Sister Grimm and Topher, and Topher leaves. Alex tells Sister
Grimm that he was watching her, and she is furious. Alex tries to explain that he discovered the tunnels earlier, but was only
watching her for the first time tonight, because he distrusts Topher. Meanwhile, Topher heads off to have a similar conversation
with Lucy in the Sky. They also kiss. Sister Grimm interrupts, and a catfight breaks out until Arsenic breaks them up.
Meanwhile, the various Pride members discuss the convenience store fight by conference call. They have worked out who the
criminals were. Sister Grimm heads out of the hostel to sulk. Topher follows her and attacks her, revealing himself as a vampire.
The same morning as RUN 9. It is "four days" after RUN 1 and shortly before MYS 11-FB. At 2:58 AM, Topher gives a
version of his origin, claiming to be a teenager who was turned into a vampire in 1916. He wants to turn Sister Grimm into a
vampire. Alex turns up and saves Sister Grimm. They retreat to the Hostel, but Topher recovers and follows. Topher fights the
Runaways. Lucy asks him to turn her into a vampire, claiming to be suicidal. Topher bites her, only to find that her alien
physiology is lethal to him. Topher is destroyed. The other Runaways assume that Lucy made a correct guess; Lucy's demeanor
indicates that she may in fact have been sincere. "The next morning" (after dawn), the other two vampires are interrogated in a
warehouse by Dale Yorkes, the female Dr Hayes, and Mr. Minoru. The vampires explain that Topher has been destroyed, which
they can sense because of their link with him as their sire. Having no further use for the vampires, the Pride members destroy
them. They are proud of their children's achievement in destroying a vampire.
NEW X-MEN #140 (15-22)
The day after X 140 (1-14). Bishop and Sage continue their investigation, and Angel's brood of larvae are discovered.
NEW X-MEN #141
The same day as X 140 (15-22). This story probably occurs before TP:RTR. Angel's brood hatches. The X-Men discover that
Angel and Beak were set up to take the fall for Emma's "murder" by Esme and a partner whose identity remains unknown, as
Esme mind-wipes Bishop and Sage to escape. Phoenix fuses Emma's diamond pieces back together, allowing Emma's
disembodied spirit to return to her body. The missing Scott is now the prime suspect. Although not shown, presumably the
lockdown at Xavier's is lifted at this point, and Xavier may relieve Bishop and Sage of their services. Green grass and trees at
Xavier's. Esme makes another reference to "summer."
The day after ALIAS 24 (17-23). Jessica awakens at Luke Cage's place, where she crashed (literally) after having had too much
to drink the night before. She tells Cage about her past encounter with Killgrave "a few years ago" in ALIAS 25-FB.
The same day as ALIAS 25. Jessica finishes telling Cage her story, then goes to see Killgrave at the high-security prison called
ALIAS #27 (1-19:7)
The same day as ALIAS 26. Jessica visits with Killgrave, and "an hour after" she leaves, he escapes from the Raft and carnage
ensues. The Avengers, the FF, and SHIELD are noted as being on the scene and involved in a manhunt in a news broadcast.
Afraid to return home, Jessica goes to Scott Lang's apartment. Green grass and trees.
RUNAWAYS SAGA - FB (9-11)
The same day as RUN 10. Molly writes in her diary about her recent adventures with the Runaways.
Friday, May 30
ALIAS #27 (19:8-22)
The morning after ALIAS 27 (1-19). Jessica awakens only to find a bloodied, apparently dead Scott covered in ants by her side.
The same day as ALIAS 27 (19-22). As Cage and Jessica officially become a couple after this issue, this story must occur before
SECWAR 1 (1-3). Jessica faces Killgrave, who tells her that Scott's condition is imagined by her at his instigation. As Killgrave
proceeds to order Manhattanites to kill one another, Jean Grey appears to Jessica in a psychic projection and tells her about the
psychic defense trigger she planted in Jessica's mind. When the Avengers arrive on the scene and Killgrave orders Jessica to kill
Cap, she activates the trigger and beats up Killgrave. As the defeated villain is carried away, Jessica breaks up with Scott, as she
is "three months pregnant" with a child that could have been Scott's (thus it's at least three months after ALIAS 14?), but isn't.
That night, the Bugle proclaims Jessica a hero, Cage confesses his feelings for Jessica, and she informs him that she's pregnant
with his child. Warbird is with the Avengers and she's not in the new costume she adopted in A3 65, but this story may not occur
before A3 65; Carol may be switching between costumes, as seen in IM3 75. This means that the new costumes worn by Jack of Hearts and She-Hulk are seen here first, before A3 65. Jan wears the costume seen in A3 71. This also means that Subby's appearance with the Avengers here must occur after his departure from the team in A3 61; it is not known why he would have returned for this appearance. Jean notes that "we have our hands full where my actual body is"; this may be a reference to the continuing investigation of Emma Frost's "murder" after X 141; Jean's very presence here indicates that this story occurs before X 142. Green grass and trees in New York.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #3 (1-19)
One day. While Magma lays in a coma (where she's been since just after UX 423), Dani recruits a mutant with decaying power
in Atlanta, where we see green grass and trees. School is in session, both at Xavier's (where Beast is teaching as part of summer
session) and at a public high school (it's not summer vacation yet, and it can't be a holiday), where student Kevin Ford hasn't
reported "for the last two days." There is a reference to "finals" at the high school, and Dani claims to represent a "summer
program." We see short sleeves at Xavier's.
X-TREME X-MEN #25
One day. It is probably a weekday during the college year. Given Kurt's conversation with Logan in W3 6, it appears that W3 6
must occur before this issue. In freeing Stryker from incarceration, Deathstrike makes it appear that Stryker was killed in an
airplane explosion by the X-Men. We see snow in the Rockies and green trees in Kentucky, where Cannonball has invited
Storm, Bishop, Sage, and Wolverine (sans goatee, perhaps after X 141). The X-Men investigate the site of the plane crash. Kitty
sees her school psychologist, and that night, she is abducted from the Belles of Hell by Deathstrike and Stryker.
X-TREME X-MEN #26
The same day as XX 25. The X-Treme team battle Stryker's troops in the snowy Rockies and take captives as they try to figure
out what Stryker is up to. Stryker tries to break Kitty's will, but fails. Deathstrike is forced to try to kill Stryker by the man who
runs Mount Haven, who views Stryker as a threat. Stryker escapes with Kitty in hand.
X-TREME X-MEN #27 (1-13)
The same night as XX 26. Shadowcat phases cross-country as the earth as it spins on its axis, causing Storm to lose control in
the Rockies, creating a blizzard and undoing "all the good work....accomplished these past months" in physical therapy. Waning
Saturday, May 31
One early morning, shortly after RUN 10. At "9:09 PM" (Pacific time), Cloak and Dagger (their powers restored somehow) are
in LA, having been called in by Lt. Flores, the corrupt police officer working for the Pride. He gives them the Pride's cover story
that the older Runaways abducted the younger ones, and sends them off to catch the team. Meanwhile, the Runaways decide to
go out on a supply run into town. Flores meets with the Pride and tells them what he's done. They're furious, as he's just invited
super-heroes into their territory. Mrs. Wilder shoots him in the knee. At 12:12 AM (Pacific time), the Runaways drive into town
and stop to fight some vandals. Cloak and Dagger attack. Cloak consumes Alex, Lucy in the Sky, Talkback, and Sister Grimm
in his cloak. Full moon.
The same early morning as RUN 11. It is three weeks before RUN 13. Bruiser manages to tear off Cloak's cloak. Arsenic and
Bruiser persuade Cloak and Dagger that they've been duped. The heroes manage to reattach the cloak, and Cloak brings back
Alex, Lucy, Talkback, and Sister Grimm. Cloak and Dagger tell the Runaways that they will return to New York and alert the
Avengers to the Pride. The Runaways refuse to go with them, but agree to lie low until the Avengers arrive. At "1:23 AM"
(Pacific time), the Runaways stop to buy food on their way home. Alex breaks away and phones Flores to tip him off about
Cloak and Dagger's whereabouts. Flores alerts the Pride. The Pride (well, four of them) attack and defeat Cloak and Dagger.
They wipe Cloak's and Dagger's memories and send them back to New York with no recollection of meeting of the Runaways.
Green trees in California. Full moon.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #3 (20-22)
The day after NM2 3 (1-19). According to NX 2, this segment occurs "a couple of weeks" before NM 6 (4-24), but it may be
just a few days before. Kevin Ford is examined at Xavier's and Xavier reveals the comatose Magma to Dani, who is wearing the
same clothes she wore the previous day - an indication that this scene may occur in the wee hours of the morning after NM2 3
(1-19), technically "the next day."
X-TREME X-MEN #27 (14-23)
The day after XX 27 (1-13). Kitty finds herself in Mt. Haven, where we see green grass and trees and warm weather.
X-TREME X-MEN #28
The same day as XX 27 (14-23). Stryker and Deathstrike defeat Kitty and the X-Treme team at Mt. Haven, where we see green
trees and warm weather. Cannonball vows to save the day.
X-TREME X-MEN #29
The same day as XX 28. Cannonball fights Deathstrike after she seemingly kills Logan, then he faces a brainwashed Storm.
Bishop faces a brainwashed Sage. Stryker shows Kitty the truth behind Mt. Haven, then strikes her and Reverend Paul down.
Green grass and trees and warm weather in Washington state.
X-TREME X-MEN #30
The same day as XX 29. This story occurs before NX 26-FB (1) and must occur sometime before NX 21-FB. Logan recovers
and many of Mt. Haven's nannite-infested residents die when Paul is out of commission. Stryker and Kitty discover that Paul is
a cybernetic sentient and Stryker sacrifices his freedom to keep Paul contained. That night in Chicago, the X-Men hang at the
Belles of Hell and Kitty considers running for alderman in "a municipal election this fall." Green grass and trees in Washington
CABLE & DEADPOOL #3 (16-21)
One day, "days" after C&DP 3 (11-15). Nathan falls into a trap laid by the One World Church and the converted Wade attacks
CABLE & DEADPOOL #4
The same day as C&DP 3 (16-21). It must be more than just "a few days" after C&DP 2 (1-19). Cable battles Deadpool and the
One World Church. The Facade Virus inhibits Nathan's power and causes the techno-organic virus to take over, and the Facade
Virus causes Wade to start melting. The autumn leaves in France may be topical.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #5 (1-12:4)
The same day as C&DP 4. Nathan and Wade cure each other, then Nathan leaves Wade to stop a Singapore facility from
brewing a new batch of Facade Virus. Green trees in Chicago.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #1 (11)
One day, "a month and a half" after SMU2 1 (1-10). Peter Parker attends Stella Davis' funeral. Green grass and trees.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #4 (2-11)
One day. This segment may well occur the same day as NM2 3 (20-22). Xavier sends Dani (in a change of clothing from NM2
3) to Chicago to recruit David Alleyne, who turns out to be an acquaintance of Karma. (It must be after the lockdown from X
140-141 has been lifted.) Shan graduates from the University of Chicago, where we see light clothing and a "commencement"
ceremony. Xavier checks up on Magma, who is still in a coma. Kevin Ford is given a clean bill of health; it may be quite a
while after his arrival at Xavier's, given the comment, "It's about time we got you into class." Green grass and trees and light
clothing at Xavier's. Shan notes that "summer session starts Monday."
FANTASTIC FOUR #512 (1-10)
One day. The Statue of Liberty is standing; I have it here before its destruction in "Magneto's" attack of X 147. Reed instructs
Johnny to show his new cure for acne to Revlon and get a check "by Friday;" Johnny may have resumed a managerial position at
FF Inc. following the Latverian incident and its aftermath, but not necessary the position of CFO, given that the restoration of the
company may have had to be handled by a new money manager (the one who ends up embezzling funds as noted in FOUR 1).
Johnny talks about the FF's bad press with Spider-Man. Noting her sensitivity to cold, Alicia says that it's a "warm day. Spring
finally sprung. Was it last week it was freezing out?"
RUNAWAYS SAGA - FB (11-14)
The same day as RUN 12. Molly writes in her diary about her recent adventures with the Runaways.
Sunday, June 1
SHE-HULK v3 #1 (3-11)
A "Monday" that cannot be a holiday. I've placed this story after A3 76. This segment must occur after UX 436. After
attending Janet Van Dyne's "spring fashion show" the night before, She-Hulk awakens in bed with a model at Avengers
"Mansion" (likely Embassy at this point), where she has had "frequent overnight guests." She then goes to court and argues a
case against a corporation before being summoned by the Avengers (including Hercules) to battle Modok, Blizzard, and AIM in
space. After her team's victory, She-Hulk throws a usual party at the mansion. We see green trees and a weather report expects
"clear skies through Wednesday."
FANTASTIC FOUR #512 (11-18)
The "warm day" after FF 512 (1-10). Spidey and Johnny battle Hydro-Man at a water park during its "opening weekend." We
see green trees and outdoor water fun.
FANTASTIC FOUR #513
The same "brutally hot day" as FF 512 (11-18). Spidey and Johnny defeat Hydro-Man, who gets away with the Wizard's assistance. We see green trees at the water park.
GET KRAVEN #6 (20-24)
One day, "six months" after GK 6 (19). Al Kraven and the Vulture do some superheroing by helping an old couple from being
assaulted. Spider-Man talks to Tymby who tells him they've been at it for "three months."
CABLE & DEADPOOL #5 (12:5-21)
Probably the day after C&DP 5 (1-12), given that Wade's on a plane that left "about seven hours" after C&DP 5 (1-12). Cable
arrives in Singapore but fails to stop the Facade Virus from being released, thanks to Lightmaster.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #6 (1-16)
The same day as C&DP 5 (12-21). It is "weeks" before C&DP 6 (17-21) and C&DP 7. There is no evidence of "Magneto's"
destruction in Manhattan, so this segment likely occurs before X 147-FB (2-3). Nathan briefly turns the skin color of the entire
world pink here; this means that this segment must occur on a day that allows everyone in the MU to be pink for an hour or so -
that is, no conflict with any other storyline. Nathan finds the remnants of his space station and puts them back together. He
restores his teleport matrix and discovers that he and Deadpool are bonded on a genetic level. Cable saves the world from the
Facade Virus, but Deadpool reverts back to his normal deformity. Nick Fury appears.
Monday, June 2
SHE-HULK v3 #1 (12-13)
The day after S-H3 1 (3-11). Jen wins the court case and more partying ensues. Green grass and trees in New York.
CRIMSON DYNAMO #6 (18-21)
One day, "one month" after CD 6 (1-17). Gennady is keeping the armor as a keepsake in the basement of the warehouse where
he found the helmet, and has decorated it to his own taste. Tony Stark is "in politics now" and hasn't had time to follow up - we
see Stark in the Oval Office with President Bush and Stu Conrad and giving a press conference; Tony must be Secretary of
Defense by this point, so this segment likely occurs after IM3 83 (21). Light jackets in Moscow.
X-STATIX #16 (1-3)
One day, long enough after XS 15 (12-18) for El Guapo to recover from the loss of his legs. As the random killings continue,
Henrietta introduces new X-Statix costumes. Her photo is taken for the Time Magazine cover seen in XS 16 (4-7).
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #1/2
One day. In a "new" black costume, Slyde, undergoing a mid-life crisis at "forty," takes on Spidey just for the sake of doing it. Spidey beats him.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #4 (12-24)
The "Monday" after NM2 4 (2-11). It is the first day of class during summer session at the University of Chicago. David is
outed as a mutant and decides to accompany Dani back to Xavier's. Shan and her siblings decide to join them. Green grass and
trees in Chicago.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (18:2)
Probably the same night as NM2 4 (12-24). We see Laurie, Sofia, Kevin, and David at a table in the cafeteria at Xavier's. I
interpret this scene as a dinner occurring right after David arrives at the school; these four are seen again, in different clothes, at
the same cafeteria table in NM2 5 (5-24).
NEW MUTANTS v2 #5 (1-4)
Probably the same night as NM2 4 (12-24). Donald Pierce has a meeting of the Reavers, now a group of mutant-hating humans.
Among their recruits is Josh Foley. Sofia's father is in New York on business and wants no contact with his daughter.
Tuesday, June 3
SHE-HULK v3 #1 (14-22)
The day after S-H3 1 (12-13). It is "two days" after S-H 1 (3-11) and "a year" before S-H4 1. On a "beautiful day," Cap kicks
Jen out of the mansion and takes away her privileges. Then Jen gets fired from her job and goes to a bar, where she drinks
Blizzard under the table. Holden Holliway then offers Jen a job with his law firm, starting "Monday," provided she give up
being She-Hulk. The Wasp is seen here in the costume first seen in A3 71.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #5 (5-23:1)
The day after NM2 5 (1-4). Logan instructs a class in self-defense at the Institute, while Xavier offers Shan a job there. Shan
suggests that her siblings get "the summer off" before returning to school and Xavier notes that "things are fairly quiet during the
summer." Dani and Shan take Sofia, Laurie, Kevin, and David into Manhattan and the four kids are lured into an ambush by the
Reavers. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (18:3-18:4)
The same night as NM2 5 (5-23). Laurie uses her power to scare away Reavers.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #5 (23:2-23:6)
The same night as NM2 11-FB (18:2-18:4). Laurie's power affects Kevin.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (18:5)
The same night as NM2 5 (23). Pierce stabs Laurie through the heart.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #5 (24)
The same night as NM2 11-FB (18:5). Josh and Kevin watch the stabbing.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #6 (1-3:2)
The same night as NM2 5 (24). As Sofia, David, and Shan fight the Reavers, Pierce drops the stabbed Laurie to the floor.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (20:1)
The same night as NM2 6 (1-3). Laurie lies at the feet of Pierce.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #6 (3:3-4:5)
The same night as NM2 11-FB (20:1). Kevin attacks Pierce and Josh tries to heal Laurie.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (20:2-20:3)
The same night as NM2 6 (3-4). Josh saves Laurie.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #6 (4:6-24)
The same night as NM2 11-FB (20:2-20:3). According to NX 2, this segment occurs "a couple of weeks" after NM2 3 (20-22),
but it may be just a few days after. This segment presumably occurs "months" before NM 13 (1-2), but it may only be weeks
before. Kevin uses his death touch on Pierce and Dani stops him from killing the cyborg by using her illusion power. Pierce is
taken into custody and the kids return to Xavier's, where we see green grass and trees. Josh returns home, but is spurned by
friends and family as a mutant and, with nowhere else to go, arrives at Xavier's. Frightened by his actions, Kevin leaves Xavier's
and Dani decides to quit, branding herself a failure as a teacher. But Shan, Xavier, and the remaining kids convince her to stay.
Since Xavier is walking here, this segment must occur before X 146 and thus probably before X 142.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #2
One school day. "Tomorrow" is noted as being another school day, and the test that Peter has corrected was given after a
"weekend," likely on a Monday. He comments that a student has gone from Ds to an A "in one semester," a clue that this may be
the end of a semester. Spidey nearly loses a bunch of corrected chemistry exams when he saves a man who falls off a building.
Peter is shown teaching at "P.S. 108," not Midtown High (an error?). Green grass in New York.
Wednesday, June 4
NEW MUTANTS v2 #7 - FB
One school day at Xavier's, sometime between NM2 6 (4-24) and NM2 7 (1-15). Josh Foley attends classes taught by Warren
Worthington, Dani Moonstar, and Shan Coy Manh. Xavier's school is whole and functioning, so this story must occur before X
142, the beginning of the story that leads to the destruction of the school.
X-STATIX #16 (4-7)
One day, long enough after XS 16 (1-3) for Time Magazine to publish Henrietta's photo. Henrietta hopes to stumble upon the
X-TREME X-MEN #32 - FB (22-23)
One day, long enough after XX 32-FB (20) for Marie to recover from the accident and have a series of nightmares probably
spanning several days. An X-Corp representative gets Marie D'ancanto's uncle to sign over their house and reports back to
Roberto da Costa. Green grass and trees in southern California.
PUNISHER v6 #37 (18-22)
One day, some time after PUN6 37 (1-17), long enough for Soap to have moved to Los Angeles and become "a major star in the
adult film industry." It is "four years" after PUN5 1. The Punisher takes Innskipp to the top of the Empire State Building and
throws him off. As Innskipp falls to his death, the Punisher reflects on the World Trade Center disaster. He believes that since
9/11, America has finally come to see the world his way.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #27
One day. This story must occur after IM3 83 (21), as Stark is Secretary of State here. Lester Paley and hundreds of others are
killed in a terrorist attack in Cleveland, and Cap and Iron Man head there to investigate. They discover that the attack is from the
future. Then a temporal anomaly restores everything, including Paley. The terrorist from the future, Becky Barnes, comes
looking for her father Isaiah Bradley and attacks Rebecca before disappearing. There are references to 9-11. It is "June," but the
reference to "2004" is topical. It is a presidential election year and Paley is campaigning.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #28 (1-19)
The same day as CA4 27. It is "some weeks" before CA4 28 (20-22). An Isaiah Bradley of an alternate time line takes Cap and
Rebecca into an alternate future to stop his daughter Becky. Rebecca breaks up with Steve. It is "June," but the reference to
"2004" is topical.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS SUPER SUMMER SPECTACULAR #1/2 (1-5:3)
One school day. To research his science homework, Franklin takes the Fantasti-Sub into the ocean where he and Herbie are attacked by a giant squid. They're saved by Squid Kid, who follows them home.
Thursday, June 5
FRANKLIN RICHARDS SUPER SUMMER SPECTACULAR #1/2 (5:4-5:6)
The day after FRSSS 1/2 (1-5). This segment occurs before FR:HF 1/4 (1). It is a school day before another school day.
Franklin gets an "F" on his science assignment because he wrote about Squid Kid and not squids, but he plans to bring Squid Kid
to show-and-tell tomorrow.
One day. Henrietta tries to get the dead to help her find the random killers, but Dead Girl blocks her attempt.
TARGET PRESENTS: READING TO THE RESCUE! #1
One school day. This story likely occurs between X 141 and 142 and after ASM 504 (19-22). A group of school kids (including
Sharon, Russ, and Austin) on a field trip to a fairgrounds defeats a villain by reading Loki's spells. Among the heroes present
are: Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor (in classic costume), and Jean Grey (in Morrison-era outfit and manifesting the Phoenix
raptor). The narrative incorrectly identifies Mary Jane as Peter Parker's "girlfriend," not wife.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #7 (1-15)
One school day at Xavier's, where we see green grass and autumn leaves (which must be topical). This segment occurs "some
days" before XX 34 and during the "week" before NM2 8 (1-5). Josh Foley writes home about his life at Xavier's (he mentions
classes with Hank McCoy, Emma Frost - post-X 141 - and Tom Corsi). He notes that he hasn't written since coming to
Xavier's (implying a while has passed) and that he saved Laurie's life "this summer," more clues that some time has passed since
NM2 6, but given Xavier's chronology, this story is more likely to occur very shortly after NM2 6. Josh uses his healing power
to jump-start Magma's brain, lifting her out of her coma. Unfortunately, when she awakens she blasts a big hole in the school
and runs away.
IRON MAN v3 #84
One day, "a few years" after A@ 9. Force helps Stark develop a new R&D lab. Three senators debrief Stark on the existence of
another Arsenal unit beneath Avengers Embassy and Iron Man calls a meeting of the Avengers (Falcon, Panther, Ant-Man, and
Wasp, who is now in a light blue costume). The government swears Shellhead to secrecy, but the Avengers follow Iron Man and
discover the alpha Arsenal. Green trees in New York.
IRON MAN v3 #85 (1-18)
The same day as IM3 84. The Avengers, joined by the Vision, Warbird (in her DHS uniform), and DHS troops, subdue the alpha
Arsenal and Gyrich confronts Tony about his conflicting duties as Avenger and Secretary of Defense. Green grass and trees in
New York and Washington, DC.
X-MEN v2 #201 - FB (5:4)
One day. According to a Neverland file, it is "day 701," so it must be 60 days after X 201-FB (5:3) and 23 days before X 201-FB (6:3). Neverland soldiers terminate prisoner resistance in the yard of the camp.
Friday, June 6
IRON MAN v3 #85 (19-21)
The day after IM3 85 (1-18). Stark gives a speech at the National D-Day Museum "on this anniversary of the Normandy
Invasion"; this means the date is June 6. Stu tells Tony he still has time in his job as Secretary of Defense and that he might be
popular enough to "still be here whatever happens in November"; this is an indication that this segment occurs before November.
It also means, of course, that a presidential election is coming just two years after the presidential election involving Robert
Kelly. Green trees in New Orleans.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #7 (16-18)
The day after NM2 7 (1-15). It is "two weeks" before NM2 7 (19-22). With Jean and Northstar present, Xavier gives Josh
detention for his reckless act of the day before. We see green grass and the last of autumn leaves falling from bare trees at
X-STATIX #16 (10-14)
One day. The random killings have been going on for "a few weeks," and Henrietta is held accountable for the lack of progress
in apprehending the killers. Lacuna makes a pass at Guy and is rebuffed, then she receives documents that would destroy Spike
NEW X-MEN v2 #26 - FB (1)
One day, after XX 30. It is supposed to be "several years" before NX 26, but it may be just the year before. At Mount Haven,
Stryker's capsule opens and Reverend Paul's essence escapes. Stryker believes himself punished by God for his perceived
Saturday, June 7
X-STATIX #16 (15-22)
One day. Lacuna tells Guy about the documents she received and how they would implicate not only Spike, but Edie as well.
Guy confronts Spike about it and ends up killing him. Guy catches up to Lacuna, who gets shot by a sniper working for Mister
Code. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC and California, where it is warm enough for outdoor swimming.
X-STATIX #17 (1-9)
The same day as XS 16 (15-22). Because Henrietta is Secretary of Homeland Defense, it is likely that this story occurs before
IM3 73, the storyline that leads to Tony Stark's bid for Secretary of Defense. Orphan catches the sniper, who kills himself. X-
Statix ports to the law offices where they try to steal incriminating documents linking them to illegal arms and drug trades and
X-TREME X-MEN #31 (5-22)
One day. Val Cooper gives a presentation on the mutant threat at the presidential ranch in Texas, where Storm and Remy are
undercover and we see green grass and trees and a barbecue. On assignment for the L.A. Division of X-Corp, Bishop and Sage
deal with a dangerous mutant, then the duo check in on Rogue and the new life she's adopted in L.A., where we see green grass
and trees as well. That night, they go to a club and meet up with Sam, Lila Cheney, and an anti-mutant terrorist with a bomb.
X-TREME X-MEN #32 (1-17)
The same night as XX 31 (3-22). This segment is referred to as having occurred "the other night" in XX 33 (5-13). Sam
removes the terrorist from the club, then takes off with Lila. Rogue apprehends the terrorist, Marie D'ancanto. Storm and Remy
blow their cover at the presidential ranch. Green grass and trees in L.A and Texas. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #33 (14-16)
The same night as XX 32 (1-17). At the presidential compound, Storm outlines her plan for diffusing the growing rift between
human and mutant. As it picks up right from the scene in Texas in XX 32, this scene must occur out of sequence from the rest of
this issue because more time passes in the Marie D'ancanto storyline. From the conversation, it appears obvious that this
segment occurs before X 142, the storyline that leads to Magneto's victory. Green trees and warm weather in Texas. Full moon.
Sunday, June 8
X-TREME X-MEN #32 (18-23)
The morning after XX 32 (1-17). Marie D'ancanto tells Rogue her story of hatred for mutants.
X-STATIX #17 (10-22)
Probably the day after XS 17 (1-9). The X-Statix scandal breaks and the team decides to go after Mister Code to redeem
themselves. With help from the dead Spike Freeman, the team locates Code and defeats him. A boy wishes for a scooter for
Christmas in his prayers, but this doesn't necessarily mean that the holiday is approaching.
X-STATIX #18 (1-4)
The same day as XS 17 (10-22). Code's body explodes, killing Henrietta and Phat. Henrietta's record company decides to
exploit her death by releasing a new CD called "Back from the Dead."
FANTASTIC FOUR #512/2 (1)
One day. Sue talks to Alicia on the phone about her relationship with Reed since their return from Latveria.
WEAPON X: DAYS OF FUTURE NOW #3 - FB (4:3-4:6)
One day, "months" after WX:DOFN 3-FB (4:1-4:2). This flashback occurs before WX:DOFN 3-FB (6-7). Mesmero's powers
return and Weapon X Director Jackson gives him an assignment to control Agent Zero.
NEW X-MEN v2 #20 - FB
One night, shortly after NX 26-FB (1) and "two years" before NX 20 (4). When a down-and-out William Stryker returns to his
ruined church, an apparition appears to him.
NEW X-MEN v2 #26 - FB (2:4)
The same day as NX 20-FB. It is supposed to be "two years before M-Day," but it may be just the year before. Nimrod appears
NEW X-MEN v2 #29 - FB (9:1-9:2)
The same day as NX 26-FB (2:4). Nimrod sees Stryker and starts to shut down.
NEW X-MEN v2 #26 (3:1-3:3)
The same day as NX 29-FB (9:1-9:2). Nimrod collapses and Stryker considers him a sign from God.
Monday, June 9
X-TREME X-MEN #33 (1, 3-4)
Perhaps the day after XX 32 (18-23) - enough time has to have passed for groups of people to organize support of and
opposition to Marie D'ancanto, who appears in court to plead "not guilty" to her attempted suicide bombing in XX 32 (1-17).
FANTASTIC FOUR #512/2 (2:1)
On a "Monday," Sue ropes Reed into going shopping with her.
SHE-HULK v3 #2 (1-13)
The "Monday" after S-H3 1 (14-22). It is "a couple weeks" after S-H3 2-FB, "years" after She-Hulk first became an Avenger (in
A 221), a "few months" before S-H3 6 (1-20), and during the "year" before S-H4 4-FB (2-8). Wanda puts a spell on Jennifer
that prevents anyone wishing She-Hulk harm to recognize her in her Jennifer Walters form. Jennifer packs for her move out of
Avengers' "Mansion" (actually Embassy), then reports to her first day on the job at Goodman, Lieber, Kurtzberg & Holliway,
where she is added to the "superhuman law" staff and given Danger Man's case. Cameos by Awesome Android and Wasp (in
the costume first seen in A3 71). Green trees in New York.
HULK/WOLVERINE: SIX HOURS #1
One day. On board a plane to Canada, fugitive Bruce Banner encounters a boy named Kyle who has been poisoned by a snake,
and the prospect of turning the plane around for medical help forces the hand of drug dealers Sid and Whitie. Their actions lead
to Banner's change into the Hulk, who sends the plane plummeting. Banner has a full head of hair and is a fugitive, so this story
must occur sometime after H3 54. Green grass and trees and coat weather in Canada. Since Kyle is on his way to a "summer
camp," it is likely June.
HULK/WOLVERINE: SIX HOURS #2
The same day as HW:SH 1. After the plane crash, Banner encounters Logan and they team up to save Kyle. A crime boss sends
Shredder after Sid and Whitie, who have taken Kyle and pilot Margie White hostage in an attempt to find the buyer for their
drugs. Green grass and trees in Canada.
HULK/WOLVERINE: SIX HOURS #3
The same day as HW:SH 2. It is "two years" after H/W:SH 3-FB. Whitie dies in a vehicle crash. Shredder kills Sid and comes
close to killing Margie and Kyle when Logan and Banner arrive on the scene. It is a time of year in which sunset arrives before
6:15 PM, but that conflicts with the summer camp reference in HW:SH 1. Green grass and trees in Canada.
HULK/WOLVERINE: SIX HOURS #4
The same day as HW:SH 3. Publication order would place this issue before W/CA 1. Shredder is killed and Logan and Banner
save Kyle with a coral snake and a transfusion from the Hulk.
MYSTIQUE #1 (1-8)
One night. It must be a weeknight, as Charles Xavier appears on Nightline. Jean is at Xavier's. We learn that Xavier has covert
operatives in the world and that one has been killed on a mission.
Tuesday, June 10
MYSTIQUE #1 (9-23)
The early morning after MYS 1 (1-8). At 2:54 AM, Xavier arrives at Forge's apartment in Baltimore to ask him to find
Mystique; it is likely that the two men last saw each other at the near-wedding in UX 425. At 3:12 AM, Mystique is on a mission
in Washington DC. She must appear here following the Draco storyline in UX 434.
The same early morning as MYS 1 (9-23). It is "a few months" before MYS 11-FB. At 3:27 AM, Forge discovers the
whereabouts of Mystique, who is captured by government agents at 3:29 AM. At 4:36 AM, the captive Mystique awakens in a
DHS flying "justice unit," where she faces Johnny Kitano, a mutant whose mission is to eliminate mutant threats to the
government. Mystique is rescued by Xavier, who is disguised as Magneto. Full moon.
The same day as MYS 2. Xavier and Forge send Mystique to Cuba on a clandestine mission to destroy two mutant-killing
robots. Once there, she meets her handler, Shortpack. Green vegetation in New York.
The same day as MYS 3. Mystique insinuates her way to Luis Disovil, the man who purchased the Sentinels and is conducting
experiments on Cuban mutants. She assumes his identity, only to face a band of freedom fighters, led by Lazaro Rivera.
The same night as MYS 4. Mystique sides with the freedom fighters and battles Disovil's soldiers. She finds the kidnaped
children, only to learn that she must kill Lazaro's little sister Evangelina to stop the Sentinels.
MYSTIQUE #6 (1-15)
The same night as MYS 5. Lazaro kills Evangelina and kills himself. Mystique, the rebels, and the freed mutants evacuate
Disovil's base before the Sentinels destoy it. Mystique reports back to Shortpack.
SHE-HULK v3 #2 (14-20)
The day after S-H3 2 (1-13). It is "weeks" before S-H3 2 (21). On a "Tuesday," She-Hulk visits Danger Man and his family and
resolves to do good by them.
X-TREME X-MEN #33 (5-13)
Perhaps the day after XX 33 (3-4). XX 32 (1-17) is referred to as having occurred "the other night." Rogue has a nightmare
early this morning, then the X-Corp lawyer shows up to try to talk Rogue and Sam (who has returned with Lila), who he believes
to be baseline human, into selling Rogue's home. Lila ports Bishop to New York.
X-TREME X-MEN #33 (17-23)
The same night as XX 33 (5-13). Rogue and Sam attack Cutter, Porous, Dervish and company at their beach hangout while Sage
arrives at X-Corp Los Angeles, which she discovers is the employer of the lawyer. Full moon.

On the "Wednesday" after FF 512/2 (2:1), Franklin returns home from going swimming in Namor-type swim trunks.
X-TREME X-MEN #34
Probably the day after XX 33 (17-23). It is "some days" after NM2 7 (1-15). Magma arrives in L.A. and she and Sam visit
Roberto at X-Corp. The charges against Cutter, Porous, Dervish, and company are dismissed in court, an indication that it's a
weekday. That night, Rogue fights Revenant and Manacle and tails them back to X-Corp, where she confronts Roberto. Green
trees in southern California. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #35 (1-22)
The same night as XX 34. Roberto uses X-Corp employees Skitz and Stringfellow to keep Rogue and Sam occupied while he
and Amara investigate X-Corp's link to the shady deals in Valle Soleada. Elias Bogan, who is calling the shots behind the
scenes, sends Cutter, Porous and Dervish against Rogue and Sam, but they are defeated. Vazhin informs Storm that the
government has provisionally accepted her proposal to form the XSE strike force, but first she and Remy must infiltrate a mutant
gladiator arena run by Tullemore Voge in Tokyo. Green grass and trees in California and Texas. Full moon.
Thursday, June 12
NEW MUTANTS v2 #8 (1-5)
One day, during the "week" after NM2 7 (1-15) - that places this segment before NM2 7 (19-22). We see bare trees and green
grass at Xavier's, where the Institute is preparing for "Parents Week," apparently for parents of the summer session students.
X-STATIX #18 (5-21)
One day. It must be several days after XS 18 (1-4). Phat is buried. The deceased Henrietta fatally curses all those who start to
sing her newly released song, and one of the victims is El Guapo. The team helps Henrietta get her revenge on those responsible
for her first death so she can rest in peace and lift the curse. Green grass and trees.

rest of the X-Treme team, and Storm informs them they are now XSE - mutant police. She also informs the team she's going
solo to infiltrate Voge's Tokyo arena. Green trees and warm weather in southern California.
Friday, June 13
FANTASTIC FOUR #512/2 (2:3)
On the "Friday" after FF 512 (2:2), Sue dusts a statue of Namor.
PUNISHER v7 #1
One day, "five days" and the "week" before PUN7 2. It is "one year" before PUN7 19 (4-22). It is Don Cesare's 100th birthday,
so this story must occur 14 or 15 years after PUN7 20-FB (15), in which Cesare was 85. Frank visits his family's graves, as he
supposedly does "once a year" on a predictable date; if it is the anniversary of his family's deaths, then it is June ("six months"
prior to ASM 129, "a summer's day," although according to P:YO 1, that day featured "spring air"). In PUN7 13, however, this
story is noted as having occurred "early last year." That evening, as the CIA and a resurrected Microchip monitor him, Frank
wipes out Don Cesare and his mobsters. A CIA agent notes that Castle is "in great shape for a guy his age." Green grass and
green and bare trees.
GHOST RIDER v4 #.5 (2-15)
The "Friday, June 15" after GR .5 (1). Nathan King's parents lose a court battle to the Red Rocket motorcycle's manufacturer,
Maxa Corp. Maxa CEO Edsel Mohr addresses the public. That night, Johnny Blaze, bum at large, reads a newspaper account
about the Maxa court win. Johnny turns into Ghost Rider, drives to the Maxa Corp. building, fights his way through lots of
guards, heads up the elevator, and snatches Mohr. On the roof, Mohr confesses to letting the explosive bikes through, since it'd
be cheaper to let a few people die and lawyers handle lawsuits than to fix them. With guards and Maxa VP Malker watching,
Ghost Rider tosses Edsel off the side of the skyscraper, and tells them to do better. The reference to "2001" must be topical.
X-TREME X-MEN #36 - FB (7-36)
One night shortly after XX 36-FB (2-6). Storm meets up with Yukio in Tokyo and they infiltrate Voge's mutant gladiator arena,
where they meet Masato Koga, who knows their identities. Koga tricks Storm into entering the arena battle between Silkworm
and Musclehead, only to become the exalted champ. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #37 - FB (2-15)
The same night as XX 36-FB (7-36). After tasting victory in the arena, Storm snatches Yukio and flees back to Yukio's
apartment, where they talk about the state of affairs between humans and mutants.

Saturday, June 14
GHOST RIDER v4 #.5 (16)
The day after GR .5 (2-15). Johnny awakens on a park bench just in time to see Malker, the new CEO, ordering a recall and
giving $600,000 to Nathan King's family. Maxa Corp. comes out of the whole ordeal better than ever, which Johnny seems to
dislike. It is "Saturday, June 16." The reference to "2001" must be topical.
X-TREME X-MEN #37 - FB (16-36)
The day after XX 37-FB (2-15). Strong Guy shows up at Yukio's apartment and tries to dissuade Storm from joining the
Fellowship of the Arena, in which he has been involved since X-Factor broke up. Storm does not heed his advice and joins the
Fellowship, only to face Callisto.
X-TREME X-MEN #38 - FB (2-28)
The same day as XX 37-FB (16-36). After Storm fights Callisto, it is revealed that Masque runs the show at the Arena and that
she has broken Callisto's will, just as she intends to do with Storm.
FANTASTIC FOUR #512/2 (3-4)
The day after FF 512/2 (2:3). On a "Saturday," Reed promises to pay more attention to Sue, and Alyssa Moy shows up.
FANTASTIC FOUR #513/2
The same day as FF 512/2 (3-4). Alyssa and Sue go back in time to check out a monster that Alyssa and Reed fought. Sue
discovers that Reed asked Alyssa to marry him back then.
ORDER v2 #3 - FB - FB (2:10)
One "Saturday." On "the same day as the opening of the College World Series," which occurs in June, James Wa has a state finals baseball meet, but he gets into a car accident that causes the loss of his legs. This flashback occurs before Wa is "twenty-two."
One night. According to SECWAR:FFNF (3:1), Dazzler goes to Club M and reportedly leaves with a cop who works in Mutant
Town; this isn't necessarily Bishop.
Sunday, June 15: Fathers' Day
X-TREME X-MEN #38 - FB (29-36)
Probably the day after XX 38-FB (2-28). In the Arena, Storm fights Paradise, disguised as Yukio, but Ororo refuses to kill her.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #8 (6-9)
One day during "Parents Week" at Xavier's. Given the presence of the Parents Week sign, up since NM2 8 (1-5), this segment
probably occurs before NM2 7 (19-22). A standing Xavier greets parents. Bare trees, green shrubs and green grass at Xavier's.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #1 (1-13)
One "Father's Day." This segment occurs after DD2 50. Daredevil (on a rare occasion of being in costume; no goatee) is on

Keller switches advisors from Northstar to Emma Frost. David decides to stay at Xavier's. Autumn trees (the leaves have
apparently risen back onto the trees) and green grass.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #1 (14-15)
The day after DD:F 1 (1-13). It is two weeks before DD:F 2 (1-13). A Daily Bugle headline reads, "Hell's Kitchen Spotless:
Crime Rate continues to fall. Daredevil cooks crooks good." At "9 AM," Matt arrives at the office and Foggy tells him his new
client, Maggie Farrell, is in his office.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #6 - FB (6:2-6:5)
The same day as DD:F 1 (14-15). Inside Matt's office, Maggie finds Matt's client address book and pockets it for herself.

The same day as DD:F 6-FB (6:2-6:5). Matt and Foggy meet with Sean and Maggie Farrell, who are out to sue the New Jersey
Power and Light Company because Maggie got cancer from chemicals the company has been dumping chemicals in the river
near her house. Matt and Foggy take the case. Despite Sean's denial, Matt suspects he's met him before. That night, Nero
Rodriguez sits at home watching his own biography on television. Meanwhile, Daredevil beats up a thug and gets him to turn

The same day as A/TB 1 (4-5). The Thunderbolts dismantle an illegal fusion reactor in Carnelia.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #1 (6-10)
The same day as A/TB 1-FB (6-9). Since Hawkeye is with the Avengers, this segment must occur after A3 76. The Avengers
view TV news coverage of the Carnelia incident, then jet to a Topeka research lab to battle the presumed Cobalt Man. The
narration refers to Avengers Embassy as "Avengers Mansion." We see suit jackets and short sleeves in New York.

The same day as A/TB 1 (6-10). The Avengers battle Cobalt Man, who escapes.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #1 (11-19)

a failed air attack on the Thunderbolts headquarters in Scotland.
THANOS #10 - FB
One day. The Shi'ar lose contact with a colony, and Gladiator, Oracle, Electron, and Quasar go to investigate. They find the
planet entirely eradicated, and one comatose woman, the cause of the salughter, as the sole survivor. She is arrested and
imprisoned in suspended animation in the Kyln, a maximum security prison at the edge of the universe. Soon after, however,
Oracle begins to go insane as a result of making telepathic contact with the woman. Oracle and Gladiator realize that the woman
is the Beyonder, having inexplicably taken mortal form. Gladiator goes to the Kyln himself as a prisoner, hoping to kill the Beyonder.

Probably the night of the day after XX 38-FB (29-36). Storm and Callisto battle four challengers in the GWA's London arena,
then Tullamore Voge arranges to buy Storm from Masque. Yukio and Guido talk Koga into staging a rebellion. Full moon.
Tuesday, June 17
X-TREME X-MEN #39 - FB (23-24:1)
Probably the day after XX 39-FB (21-18). Storm and Callisto fight challengers in the GWA's Hong Kong arena.
Perhaps the day after THANOS 10-FB. It is "months" after THANOS 6. Thanos arrives on the planet Eden, where he plans to
visit the Kyln prison, which has become a regular site for pilgrims thanks to its excellent view of the Crunch, an energy
phenomenon associated with the expansion of the universe. Thanos meets the three local cops, Cole, Kika and Swad, agents of
Omega Core. Cole takes Thanos to a teleporter which transports him to the Kyln. Thanos meditates over the Kyln and discusses
the direction of his life with a hologram of his deity, Death.
The same day as THANOS 7. Cole, Kika and Swad continue to argue about Thanos. On the Kyln, while Thanos was meditating,
there has been a major breakout. The Beyonder has woken from her coma and has shut down the nanotech which kept the
inmates under control. Thanos meets prisoner Moloka Dar, who brings him to meet inmates Gladiator and Starlord, who try to
enlist Thanos' help in controlling the Beyonder. Thanos gets the cleric to take him to the Beyonder.
The same day as THANOS 8. Omega Core officers arrive to help deal with the chaos on the Kyln. Thanos and the Cleric are
attacked by a gang led by Mynx. Meanwhile, the Beyonder emerges from the cocoon in which she was held. There are two other
cocoons in the cell. She opens one, and releases Skreet. The Beyonder heads outside and interrupts Thanos and Mynx. Unable
to remember her past, she asks Thanos about herself. She finds the answers annoying, and throws a tantrum. She causes a huge
explosion that knocks out Thanos, and then shrinks Mynx and her gang to tiny size.
The same day as THANOS 9. Skreet captures Mynx and wakes Thanos. With Skreet and Mynx in tow, Thanos confronts the
Beyonder again. He defeats the Beyonder by causing brain damage to its mortal body. Afterwards, he tells Gladiator to keep the
Beyonder alive - so long as the body remains alive, the Beyonder will be trapped and harmless, but if the body dies, the
Beyonder will resume its normal cosmic state.
The same day as THANOS 10. Thanos, Skreet and Mynx return to the cocoon chamber to find that the third inmate has escaped.
Thanos learns that this cocoon contained the Fallen One, the first herald of Galactus, who wants revenge on Galactus for
abandoning him. Mynx is returned to the authorities and Starlord arranges for her to be restored to her proper size. Gladiator
conscripts Starlord into the Imperial Guard. Thanos researches the Fallen One and determines that the Fallen One will head
straight for Galactus and might succeed in killing him, given that Galactus is still recovering from THANOS 6. Thanos contacts
Galactus by astral projection to warn him.
The same day as THANOS 11. This story occurs before SH4 12. Thanos is too far away from Galactus to reach him in time but
interferes telepathically as the Fallen One attacks Galactus. The Fallen One attacks Thanos' ship, and Thanos tricks the Fallen
One into blowing up a star, knocking him out. With the Fallen unconscious, Thanos telepathically alters his mind and declares
the Fallen One to be his herald.
SHE-HULK v3 #2 (21)
One day, "weeks" after S-H3 2 (14-20). This segment must occur before S-H4 3/2. She-Hulk winds up Danger Man's case and

NEW MUTANTS v2 #7 (19-22)
One day, "two weeks" after NM2 7 (16-18), and so after NM2 8 (1-5). The Parents Week sign is not up, so this segment
probably occurs after NM2 8 (10-24). Josh's parents arrive at Xavier's, but instead of retrieving him, they name the school his
guardian and leave without him. Xavier is still standing. Trees are now bare, with the last leaves falling from them, but the grass
at Xavier's is still green.
SHE-HULK v3 #3 (3)
One day, "weeks" after S-H3 3-FB (1-2). Mallory is assigned to the Briggs murder case and asks for assistance from "the new
girl," Jennifer Walters. Dr. Strange appears.
PUNISHER v7 #2
One day, "five days" after PUN7 1, which occurred "last week." It is after Tuesday, so it's probably a Wednesday or Thursday.
Castle massacres more mobsters at Don Cesare's funeral. Then he kills a pimp who employs a teenage hooker. Nick Cavella
arrives to take over as mob leader. Microchip (who notes that he worked with Frank for "ten years") and the CIA make their
move on Frank.
MYSTIQUE #7 (1-10)
One night. Mystique and Shortpack steal information from the palace of North Korea's Kim Jong Il. Full moon.
Thursday, June 19
MYSTIQUE #7 (11-21)
The morning after MYS 7 (1-10). At Mystique's Brooklyn safehouse, Xavier tells her that the North Koreans were planning to
steal "bigpox" from Harrison Taylor, a scientist in South Africa, her next destination. On her way out at JFK Airport, Mystique
again encounters Shepard, the man she met at the Cuban bar, who offers her another chance to be a double agent; she refuses and
the man reports to his boss, the Quiet Man. Xavier is standing in this segment (even though it's a telepathic projection, Mystique
had to ask if he were real), so this story must occur before X 146 (and thus before X 142). Green grass and trees in Westchester.
X-TREME X-MEN #39 - FB (24:4-25:2)
Probably the day after XX 39-FB (24). Storm and Callisto fight challengers in the GWA's Riyadh arena.

Roth and interrogate him about Castle.

NEW MUTANTS v2 #9 (1-10)

"tomorrow" is referred to as a school day as well. After stopping Avalanche in Manhattan, a de-powered Rahne Sinclair arrives
at Xavier's. Havok and Nightcrawler cameo. Someone wonders where the Avengers are.

David, and Josh bring Surge to the school, where she's put under the Beast's care. Dani gives her students "a week's detention"
for breaking curfew and putting themselves in danger. Full moon.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (19:3)
The same night as NM2 10 (1-9). Dani and Rahne argue.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #10 (10-11)
The same night as NM2 11-FB (19:3). Josh argues with his classmates and Dani.
UNCANNY X-MEN #437
One "summah" day. The Xavier Institute is not destroyed, so this story must occur before X 142. Tired of being pushed around
by Abe Cabot, Jeb Guthrie provokes Cabot into a fight in which Guthrie can let loose with his new powers in "self defense."
Sheriff Pete shoots Guthrie when he refuses to stand down. Paige is called, and she and Warren head to Cumberland, KY to be
with her family. Meanwhile, musician Josh Guthrie performs at a local restaurant where he enchants waitress Julia Cabot.
School is out and we see green grass and trees in Kentucky and Westchester. We see the bottom portion of what appears to be a
UNCANNY X-MEN #438
The same night as UX 437. As Josh and Julia rekindle their feelings for each other, the Guthrie/Cabot feud escalates into an
armed altercation at the Guthrie farm. Later, as the Cabots plan to kill the Guthries with accomplice Sheriff Pete, the X-Men
(Archangel, Husk, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine) arrive at the Guthrie farm. Green grass and trees in Kentucky. Full moon.
UNCANNY X-MEN #439
The same night as UX 438. It is "eight years" after UX 439-FB. This story occurs before X 157. Julia Cabot (and presumably
Josh Guthrie) is "eighteen." Julia and Josh rendezvous as Chester Cabot plans to use some abandoned armor to kill the Guthries.
Warren apologizes to Logan for his past animosity. Green grass and trees in Kentucky. Full moon.
The same night as MYS 7 (11-21). As the Quiet Man and Shepard track her, Mystique arrives in Johannesburg at 10:14 PM
SAST. After reconnoitering with Shortpack, she infiltrates Taylor's compound, only to discover him dead. She battles the killer,
the Host, who infects Mystique with a biological agent and takes off with Taylor's bigpox. Green grass and trees in South
Friday, June 20
The early morning after MYS 8 (starting 1:46 AM, Johannesburg time). Mystique staggers back to the hotel and partially
recovers while Shortpack tracks the Host with a tracer Mystique put on her. Mystique pursues the Host and considers her beaten
when the Host is hit by a car, but Host recovers and makes it back to Mystique's hotel before she does. When Raven arrives, the
Host threatens to kill Shortpack.
MYSTIQUE #10 (1-18)
The same early morning as MYS 9. Mystique saves Shortpack and defeats the Host. She meets up with Shepard, who reports
back to the Quiet Man. Full moon.

PUNISHER v7 #6
The same day as PUN7 5 (13-22). It is the "year" before PUN7 13-24. It is "18 months" before PUN7 23 (12-22). It cannot be
"eight years" since Frank last saw Microchip. The crooked CIA agent Bethel is killed, most of the mob is killed, and Frank kills
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #28 (20-22)
One day, "some weeks" after CA4 28 (1-19). Steve and Rebecca meet in a mailing center. Rebecca plans to move back to
Seattle in "September."
NEW MUTANTS v2 #10 (12-22:1)
The day after NM2 10 (10-11). It's a school day at Xavier's. Beast gives Surge gloves to regulate her electrical power. Rahne
withdraws from Dani and links up with Josh. Cyclops is back at the mansion, lifting weights - he may have just returned to the
mansion after being gone since X 139 (1-20). He notes that Rahne is "several years" younger than Dani and Shan and Josh says
Rahne is "underage" for drinking, "only a couple of years older than" him, but this can't be right. Green grass and green and
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11 - FB (19:4)
The same night as NM2 10 (12-22). Rahne and Josh kiss. Full moon.

The same night as NM2 10 (22). Rahne slashes Josh.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #10 (23)
The same night as NM2 11-FB (19:5). Rahne has turned back into her wolf girl form. The bare trees may be topical.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #11
The same night as NM2 10 (23). Laurie scares off Wolfsbane and Josh lies critically wounded in her arms from injuries inflicted
by Rahne. The bare trees may be topical.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #12 (1-18)
The same night as NM2 11. It is "a few days" before NM2 12 (19-22). The Beast tries to keep Josh alive while the word goes
out for Archangel, who is not available, but is an hour away; he may be on his way back from Kentucky after UX 441 (1-23).
Xavier is not here, and he may be contacted off-panel, providing an emergency for him to leave Forge as noted in MYS 10 (19-
22). Surge saves Josh by allowing him to heal himself, and Josh turns gold in the process. Dani retrieves Rahne, who manages to
control her power. Dani reveals to Josh that she's his legal guardian. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #36 (1)
X-TREME X-MEN #37 (1)
X-TREME X-MEN #38 (1)

Las Vegas arena for a contest.
X-TREME X-MEN #39 (25:3-39)
The same day as XX 39 (1). With help from Yukio, Guido, and Koga, Storm and Callisto rebel against Masque and defeat her in
Las Vegas. Storm and company celebrate their victory over Masque. Storm decides to leave the Arena life, but not before
setting the arenas up as safe havens for mutants.
One day, three weeks after RUN 12. It is "twenty years" after RUN 13-FB (3-10, 13-17) and eighteen years after RUN 13-FB
(19-21). The Runaways have been hiding out at their Hostel base. It's finally dawning on them that the Avengers aren't coming.
Alex announces that he's finished decoding the Abstract, and relates the origin of the Pride. Flores arrives with the police in tow,
having been tipped off by Alex. Green grass and trees in California. The full moon is inconsistent with that shown in RUN 11-12.
The same day ("4:33 PM"-"7:30 PM," Pacific time) as RUN 13. The Runaways fight Flores and his police officers. The Hostel
collapses in the fight. The Runaways use their powers to dig their way to freedom. They regroup and decide to go after their
parents that night, now that they have nowhere to hide out. Mr Wilder and Mr Stein show up at the Hostel's wreckage. Finally
fed up of Flores' incompetence, they kill him. Meanwhile, other members of the Pride prepare for that night's Rite of Thunder,
in which they will travel to the Vivarium again and present the Gibborim with the soul of the girl they killed in RUN 1. The
Deans and the Hayes are planning to kill the other members of the Pride that night.
RUNAWAYS #15 (1-7)
The same evening ("7:58 PM"-"8:08 PM," Pacific time) as RUN 14. The Pride gather at the Wilders' house. They board a
vehicle called the Leapfrog which has been designed by the Steins; it flies and travels underwater. With the Pride aboard, the
Leapfrog sets off for the Gibborim's undersea Vivarium off the west coast of California.
MYSTIQUE #10 (19-22)
One night, "twelve hours" after MYS 10 (1-18). Mystique reports back to her Brooklyn safehouse, where she meets Forge, who
notes that Xavier is "indisposed right now...I'm not sure if you've seen the news, but there's some drama over at the school" -
this reference is unclear and doesn't necessarily mean that Xavier led Forge to believe he'd be at the mansion. Nonetheless,
Xavier may have been contacted regarding Rahne's attack on Josh in NM2 11 and news reports may have come in regarding a
wolf-girl running around in the woods of Westchester.
SHE-HULK v3 #3 (4-5:5)
The "Friday night" after S-H3 3 (3). Mallory asks Jennifer to get help for their case from the Thing.
Saturday, June 21: Summer Solstice
RUNAWAYS #15 (8-22)
The early morning ("9:43 PM"-"10:51 PM," Pacific time) after RUN 15 (1-7). The Runaways follow and Sister Grimm casts a
spell to get them to the Vivarium. When they arrive, they are attacked by an animated statue which serves as a guard. Alex
deliberately delays in using the password which shuts it down, and Talkback is seemingly killed.
The same early morning (starting at "11:02 PM," Pacific time) as RUN 15 (8-22). CPR saves Talkback's life, but he is in no
condition to fight, so the Runaways leave him behind and go on to face their parents. The Runaways fight the Pride. During the
fight, Alex reveals himself as the traitor. Ultimately, only Alex and his parents are left standing.
RUNAWAYS #17 (1-16)
The same early morning (starting at "11:49 PM," Pacific time) as RUN 16. It is "more than a year" after RUN 17-FB (4) and
"three months" before RUN 18-FB. Alex explains his hidden agenda. He and his parents invite Sister Grimm and her parents to
join them in utopia, and kill the rest of the Pride. Sister Grimm refuses. The Steins and the Yorkes realize that everyone else in
the Pride is trying to kill them, and the fight breaks out again. Talkback arrives, piloting the Leapfrog. Bruiser destroys the
vessel which holds the girl's soul, and it disappears into the ether. The Pride realize that they're screwed, but too late.
SHE-HULK v3 #3 (5:6-10)
Probably the day after S-H3 3 (4-5). Jennifer moves into her new apartment, with help from the Thing, who appears here after
FF 511. We see robot arms as part of the security at Avengers Embassy; they do not exist in M/KSM 2. Green grass and trees in
MYSTIQUE #11 - FB
One night. This flashback occurs shortly after RUN 10 and a "few months" after MYS 2. Forge mentions that Xavier "isn't at
the mansion tonight," as if Xavier would normally be there; this clue places MYS 11-12 before the destruction of the Institute,
not after the reconstruction. Xavier could possibly be in Switzerland visiting Cable in C&DP 3. Forge takes Mystique out for
coffee, then they respond to a live news story about the abduction of a mutant boy, Spencer Bronson. They discover that
Spencer, a mind controller, is in charge, and he sets Forge against Mystique.
The same night as MYS 11-FB. Forge takes a swing a Mystique.
MYSTIQUE #12 (1-18)
The same night as MYS 11. After battling each other, Forge and Mystique defeat Spencer. The authorities agree to have the boy
enrolled at Xavier's, which is an indication that this segment occurs before the destruction of the mansion in X 147-FB (20-21).
Green trees in Brooklyn. The waning crescent moon is inconsistent with the full moon of MYS 7.
Sunday, June 22
MYSTIQUE #12 (19-22)
The early morning after MYS 12 (1-18). Back at Mystique's safehouse, Forge forces Mystique to face the fact that she can't
stand to see her true reflection. Waning crescent moon.
RUNAWAYS #17 (17-22:3)
The early morning after RUN 17 (1-16). This story occurs "three months" before RUN 18-FB and before RUN2 14-FB (17-18).
It must be more than just "a few weeks" before JUB 4 (6-19). The Gibborim appear and they're not happy. Where's their food?
Alex tries to show how grown-up he is by accepting responsibility. The Gibborim promptly vaporize him. The Pride fight the
Gibborim in order to buy the remaining Runaways time to escape. The Runaways board the Leapfrog and escape the Vivarium, which explodes moments later. The Pride are presumably killed. The Leapfrog lads on a beach.
MYSTIC ARCANA: SISTER GRIMM #1/2 - FB (1:5)
The same day as RUN 17 (17-22). Nico cries on the beach.
RUNAWAYS #17 (22:4-23)
The same day as MYSARC:SG 1/2-FB (1:5). This story occurs before MYSARC:SG 1/2. The five remaining Runaways are met on the beach by Captain America.
RUNAWAYS SAGA - FB (15-20)
The same day as RUN 17 (22-23). Molly writes in her diary about her recent adventures with the Runaways.
FANTASTIC FOUR #514
One day. The Wizard assembles a new Frightful Four, featuring Hydro-Man (in a new costume that Wizard apparently made for him) and Salamandra, whose 19-year-old daughter Cole befriends Johnny as a way to provide the villains access to the FF's headquarters. Wizard is revealed as Cole's father. Green trees in New York.
FANTASTIC FOUR #515
The same day as FF 514. The Frightful Four defeat the FF and the Wizard broadcasts his humiliation of the heroes on TV. Cole
rebels against her father and when the FF find her, they offer to help her deal with her power. It appears to be warm in New
York. Full moon.
FANTASTIC FOUR #516
The same night as FF 515. This story probably occurs before M/KSM 6 (4-22). The FF and Cole invade the Wizard's headquarters and in the ensuing battle, Cole increases her mass to crash the villains into the harbor, where they all disappear. Full moon.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #2 - FB
One night. Tildie Soames' mutant power to manifest her own nightmares becomes active, killing her parents and a police officer.
Monday, June 23
SHE-HULK v3 #3 (11-21)
The "Monday" after S-H3 3 (5-10). FF 511 is referred to as being a "recent" adventure. The ghost of Bailey Briggs testifies at
the trial of his murderer, but perjures himself and Jennifer and Mallory discover the truth. The Thing and Dr. Strange appear.
NEW MUTANTS v2 #12 (19-22)
One day, "a few days" after NM2 12 (1-18). The Institute is still standing, so this segment must occur before X 147-FB (20-21).
Surge gets a job at the café to repay Luna DePaula.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #505 (1-9)
One day. Peter sees M.J. off at the airport. She's off to an acting gig in California, and this is the first time she and Peter have
had to say goodbye since her return to New York. After arriving in California, M.J. fails to get the job. Green trees in New
MYSTIQUE #13 (1-20)
One night. Since Mystique is on another "errand run" for Xavier and Shortpack believes Xavier to be reachable by Shepard, this
story may occur before the "Magneto" disaster of X 146-150. Mystique retrieves the stolen severed hand of a dead mutant
named the Alchemist. Shepard, who has been in contact with Shortpack, asks Raven to help kill Xavier. We see "Carnival" in
Rio de Janeiro, but it may be the wrong time of year for that celebration; instead we may be seeing the Brazilian national holiday
of Festas Juninas.
NEW X-MEN #142
One night. The narration notes Emma's murder in X 139 (21-22) as having occurred "last month." As this issue leads to
Xavier's crippling in X 146, it must occur after C&DP 3 (1-11), MYS 7 (11-21), UX 436, NM2 7, XU21/2, and W/CA 4 (17-
21). This story probably occurs after TP:RTR. As this issue leads to the death of Jean Grey in X 150, it must occur after ALIAS
28. Wolverine (sans goatee, and probably wearing the new outfit with yellow stripes under his jacket) happens to find Scott at
the Hellfire Club trying to get drunk, probably right after his return to the mansion in NM2 10. He tells Scott the "right after" he
left [actually it was "a few days" after, as noted in X 139 (21-22)], Emma was shot, and that Scott's the prime suspect.
Sabretooth is also at the club, and it appears that he's on his own reconnaissance - he may be here after WX2 12 and must be
here more than "two weeks" before W3 13 (1-10). Logan is at the Hellfire Club to meet with Fantomex to begin a mission to
take down the Weapon Plus program, and he tries to get Cyclops to join them.
Tuesday, June 24
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #505 (10-21)
The early morning after ASM 505 (1-9). Spidey talks a kid with a gun into surrendering to police. M.J. calls Peter and tells him
she turned down the job.
NEW X-MEN #143
Probably the early morning after X 142; since Scott is expected to have a hangover, it is likely several hours after X 142, but it is
still dark out. Logan, Scott, and Fantomex infiltrate the evolutionary engineering facility, the World. There they encounter AIM
agents who have been attacked by Weapon XV.
NEW X-MEN #144
The same early morning as X 143. Inside the World, Logan, Scott, and Fantomex encounter Weapon XV, who breaks free and
heads for the Weapon Plus space station. Full moon.
MYSTIQUE #13 (21-23)
The morning after MYS 13 (1-20). Mystique and Shortpack ride a train in Brazil. Raven notes that she "won't be working for
SHE-HULK v3 #11 - FB (10:4)
One day. The staff of GLK&H get their photograph taken.
NEW X-MEN #145
The same day as X 144. It is "mere days" before X 148 (6-22). Logan, Scott, and Fantomex follow Weapon XV to the Weapon
Plus space station, where Logan accesses files concerning his identity, then, desperate and disturbed, he blows up the station.
NEW X-MEN #146
The same day as X 145. It is "days" before X 149 and "three days" before X 150 (1-31). This story may occur after MYS 13 (1-
20). Having escaped the satellite in a spacecraft, Scott and Fantomex crash into the Pacific Ocean. Beast and Emma head out to
retrieve them, but their aircraft is sabotaged. Phoenix departs for space to retrieve Logan, who she finds alive. Jean and
Wolverine discover that the Weapon Plus space program is Asteroid M, which also is rigged to explode. Xavier formally meets
Dust, so this issue can't occur long after UX 138 (16-23). Dust attacks and disables Cerebra at the order of Xorn, who cripples
Xavier and reveals himself to be "Magneto." Xavier states that he still hopes to "step down this summer" as headmaster of the
Institute. Green grass and trees at Xavier's.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #9 - FB
The same day as X 146. Dani and Shan get kids out of the Institute during Xorneto's attack.
EXILES #46 - FB
The same day as NX 9-FB. It is "weeks" before EX3 46. Xorneto hovers above the Institute as the top floor explodes and
begins to burn.
NEW X-MEN #147 - FB (20-21)
The same day as EX3 46-FB. This flashback must occur after NM2 12 (19-22). After taking Xavier prisoner, Xorneto destroys
the Xavier Institute.
X-TREME X-MEN #40
The same day as X 147-FB (20-21). It is "a few weeks" (more like seven) after UX 425 (17-23). Marie is now working for
Vange. Sage notes that the Xavier Institute is totally off-line and we see the school destroyed; the X-Treme team don't know the
reason so Magneto has not yet gone public with his Manhattan conquest. Rogue notes that Paige is "nineteen." Sam notes that
Paige "sounds way serious about being with Warren Worthington." Storm is back in Tokyo. As the rest of the X-Treme team
enjoy an evening clambake, Bishop fights Manacle, Rolling Thunder, Cudgel, Bludgeon, Revenant, and a telepath under Bogan's
control. Green grass and trees in Westchester. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #41
The same night as XX 40. There still is no news from New York concerning the fate of the X-Men and the Xavier Institute. The
captured Bishop is given Rave and falls under the control of Bogan. The X-Treme team discover Bishop's and Sage's plot to
deal with Bogan, then they plan to fight Bogan. Storm says that things in Tokyo are "confused, potentially serious." Green grass
and trees in California Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #42
The same night as XX 41. The X-Treme team, joined by X-Corp reps, go up against Bogan and his minions, including Bishop.
X-TREME X-MEN #43
The same night as XX 42. Rogue, Sage, Magma, and Shadowcat infiltrate X-Corp headquarters and face Bogan, his minions,
and possessed teammates. Full moon.
X-TREME X-MEN #44
The same night as XX 43. After trying to go against Bogan alone, Sage realizes that she needs to work with her teammates to
drive Bogan away. The mysterious telepath is freed from Bogan's control and turns out to be Rachel Summers.
X-TREME X-MEN #45 (1)
The same night as XX 44. Kitty cradles Rachel.
Wednesday, June 25
X-TREME X-MEN #45 (2-24)
The day after XX 45 (1). Storm and Callisto arrive in California. The X-Treme team defeat Bogan and destroy the X-Corp
building in the process. It is "months" after Rachel was abducted by Bogan, which occurred after C2 95.
NEW X-MEN #147 - FB (2-3)
The day after X 147-FB (20-21). This flashback likely occurs after C&DP 6 (1-16). The presumptive Magneto tears Manhattan
NEW X-MEN #147
The same day as X 147-FB (2-3). The presumptive Magneto notes that it's taken "one day" to take over Manhattan, a good bit of
which he destroys in this issue at great cost of human life. There is no sign of Asgard above Manhattan, and surely Thor would
have opposed the carnage wrought by "Magneto" in this issue if he were around, so this issue must occur after the Reigning
storyline in T2; one might argue that "Magneto" used the disappearance of Asgard as an opportunity to play his final hand. He
refers to the time he spent masquerading as Xorn as "all those months" - indeed, I've placed this story a little over a year after
Xorn was invited to Xavier's in X '01 (30-42). It is not known where New York's heroes or the other X-Men are all this time.
NEW X-MEN #148 (1-5)
It must be the same day as X 147. Aboard the hurtling Asteroid M, Logan and Jean have "24 hours" before the station hits the
surface of the sun.
Thursday, June 26
NEW X-MEN #148 (6-22)
The day ("24 hours") after X 148 (1-5). It is "mere days" after X 145, but perhaps at least two days after X 147, since the
presumptive Magneto notes that "each day, more and more mutants flock to my cause." No other stories can occur in New York
during the time "Magneto" has converted it to New Genosha. "Magneto" gloats over his victory, orders Esme to find the
remaining X-Men via Cerebra, and orders the mass extermination of all remaining humans in New Genosha "tomorrow."
Meanwhile, Logan guts Jean to put an end to her pain as Asteroid M burns up at the sun.
IRON MAN v3 #87 - FB (9:2-13:2)
One day. It is "three months" before IM3 87 (3-21). Stark is Secretary of Defense at this time, so this flashback must occur after
IM3 83 (21). Iron Man fights weapons in Iraq supplied by Clarence Ward.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #506 (1-7/8:3)
One night, shortly before ASM 506 (7/8-22). Ezekiel is bled in Peru.
Friday, June 27
NEW X-MEN #149
The rainy day after X 148 (6-22). It is "days" after X 142. As the presumptive Magneto drives New York's humans to their
deaths, he accidentally kills Basilisk and loses the support of Angel and Beak, the latter of whom is sent to his death. Beak
survives and is taken in by a mutant resistance force that includes Esme's sisters, Dust, Cyclops, and Fantomex. As "Magneto"
gloats before the imprisoned Xavier, Charles is contacted telepathically by Jean. Green trees in New York.
NEW X-MEN #150 (1-29)
The same day as X 149. This segment occurs "three days" after X 146 and "days" before UX 442. It occurs before WX2 16 and
XS 19 (1-5), and probably before MYS 11-FB. It is supposed to be the "year" before NC3 5 (1-18), but the October 24 date in
NC3 6 places that story later this same year. Logan and Jean are resurrected by the release of the Phoenix Consciousness and
they hie back to earth, pick up Emma and Hank in the Pacific Ocean, and head to Manhattan, where the presumptive Magneto
faces restless followers, mutineering sidekicks, and an attack by Fantomex and Cyclops. In the ensuing melee, Xavier is freed
and Esme is killed by "Magneto." "Magneto" sends an electromagnetic pulse through Jean's body. We see green grass and trees
and rain in New York and Washington, DC.
X-TREME X-MEN #46 - FB (5:2)
The same day as X 150 (1-29). Logan decapitates the presumptive Magneto in this televised video clip.
NEW X-MEN #150 (30-31)
The same day as XX 46-FB (5:2). This segment must occur before WX2 18-FB, as in that flashback Logan refers to the events
of X 142-146. It must be much longer than mere "weeks" before UX 468 (1-18). Jean dies in Scott's arms.
X-TREME X-MEN #46 - FB (5:4)
The same day as X 150 (1-31). Cyclops cries over Jean's dead body in his arms in this televised video clip.
Saturday, June 28
X-TREME X-MEN #46 - FB (3-4)
Perhaps the day after X 150 (30-31). Scenes of devastation and death in New York are shown in televised video clips. A
destroyed Statue of Liberty is seen.
WEAPON X: DAYS OF FUTURE NOW #3 - FB (6-7:2)
One day, after WX:DOFN 3-FB (4:3-4:6). This flashback likely occurs before WX2 18-FB. Director Jackson takes his pick of
prisoners at Neverland to be reprogrammed into agents of Weapon X; these include Diamond Lil and Random. Jackson has the
many of the rest of Neverland's prisoners executed by a mesmerized Agent Zero.
X-MEN v2 #201 - FB (6:3, 6:5-6:6)
The same day as WX:DOFN 3-FB (6-7). According to a Neverland file, it is "day 724," so it is 23 days after X 201-FB (5:4). A squad of Neverland soldiers execute remaining prisoners and pile them in a mass grave.
Sunday, June 29
NEW MUTANTS v2 #13 (1-2)
One day. This segment presumably occurs "months" after NM2 6 (4-24), but it may only be weeks later. Donald Pierce's
nephew, FBI agent Justin Pierce, arranges the commutation of his death sentence and a prison transfer from France to the U.S. in
return for testimony against Kevin Ford.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #506 (7/8:4-22)
One day shortly after ASM 506 (1-7/8). Events from ASM2 46 (2-8) on are referred to as having occurred in "the past year."
Aunt May is still living in her Queens house, so this segment must occur before M/KSM 1 (1-15). Ezekiel returns to New York.
He and Aunt May encourage M.J. to keep looking for an acting job. Ezekiel warns Spidey of the coming of the Gatekeeper. It is
supposedly "after July" and people are shown in long sleeves.
WOLVERINE ANNUAL #1 - FB (6:3-6:4)
One day. Patrick Smitty (about 16 years old) steals a purse. Later, he confesses.
Monday, June 30
UNCANNY X-MEN #442
One day shortly after X 150 (30-31). This story must occur before X 151 (22). In the wake of Magneto's destruction of New
York, Emma and Juggernaut assist with rescue efforts on Liberty Island, probably before XX 46 (1-15). They are assisted by
She-Hulk, who is not wearing the costume first seen in A3 65. Other X-Men and the Avengers are involved in the rescues
behind the scenes. Meanwhile, Xavier and Logan arrive in Genosha with Nick Fury to bury "Magneto." Logan shows his
objection to Xavier's eulogy by destroying a monument to Magneto, which incurs the ire of a group of Magneto followers.
Lorna reveals to Pietro and Wanda that she is Magneto's daughter and the three arrive in Genosha to attend the burial (although
it's strange that the latter two aren't assisting the Avengers in saving lives). Green trees in Genosha.
UNCANNY X-MEN #443
The same day as UX 442. This story must occur before MYS 14 (6-10). Lorna refers to "the Big Brother Watchers of Asgard
hovering above New York"; it is presumed that this is a reference to the recent past, not the present, since the Asgardians were
not around during Magneto's attack on Manhattan. Amid the ruins of Genosha, Lorna challenges Xavier's belief in fighting war
with peace, then she, Logan, Pietro, and Wanda leave Xavier in Genosha with "Magneto's corpse," which has fallen out of its
casket. Logan probably appears next in WX2 16.
EXCALIBUR v3 #1
The same day as UX 443. Xavier places "Magneto's" corpse back in the casket and meets two surviving Genoshans, Wicked and
Freakshow, who help him defeat Unus and his associates. After they leave, the real Magneto emerges and shakes hands with
EXCALIBUR v3 #2
The same day as XCAL3 1. The destruction of Genosha in X 115 occurred less than "a few short years ago." Xavier and
Magneto plan to rebuild Genosha and Callisto shows up. As Unus vows to slay Xavier and his charges, Hub infiltrates his group.
Hub's associate Hack detects an Omega Sentinel, Karima Shapandar, heading for Genosha.
X-TREME X-MEN #46 (1-11)
One day. TV journalists report on the "recent" destruction of New York. The X-Treme team, joined by residents of Valle
Soleada, decide to assist in the recovery efforts. After Sage and Rogue reactivate Gambit's powers, Lila teleports everyone to
New York; apparently they split up upon arrival, with Sam, Roberto and Amara heading for Xavier's and the rest staying in the
NEW MUTANTS v2 #13 (3-23)
Probably the same day as XX 46 (1-11). During his prison transfer, Donald Pierce escapes outside New York City. The original
New Mutants are reunited at the ruins of the Institute, hang at the Grind Stone, and convene at a temporary shelter set up at the
Salem Center headquarters of X-Corp, where, with Justin Pierce, they plan to bait Donald Pierce at Xavier's; the shelter is in
good shape, placing this segment before X 155. The plan works, and Donald and the Reavers are defeated. Sam asks Dani to
join the X-Men and she tells him she'll think about it. Green trees and jacket weather in New York.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #507
One day. M.J. auditions for an off-Broadway play as the Gatekeeper and his horde of spiders attacks New York. Spidey and
Ezekiel arrive on the scene and Peter learns that he was chosen to be Spider-Man and that fate has cast Ezekiel against him.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #508 - FB
The same day as ASM 507. Ezekiel defeats Spidey.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #508
The same day as ASM 508-FB. Ezekiel prepares Spidey to be slain by the supernatural spider-force from which he received his
power, but realizing that he's wasted his power all his life, Ezekiel sacrifices himself to save Spidey.
One day, a "few weeks" after A/TB 1 (11-19) and "months" before TB 103 (1-6). The Cobalt Man strikes his third nuclear
power plant "in as many days," but in reality, it's Tony Stark posing as Cobalt Man to bait the Thunderbolts into retrieving him
out from under the Avengers' noses, placing Tony in a position to spy on the T-Bolts. Given the references to the Packers and
the Vikings, it is football season.
EXCALIBUR v3 #3
The same day as XCAL3 2. Hub, Hack, and Purge teleport onto a plane carrying Karima and Shola in canisters. They fight
those aboard the plane and end up exploding the aircraft. Hub, Hack, and Purge land with the canisters in the ocean off Genosha
and Xavier, Magneto, and Callisto arrive on the scene, as do an armed squad of Magistrates looking to retrieve the Omega
Sentinel. We see what appears to be a full moon behind clouds.
EXCALIBUR v3 #4
The same night as XCAL3 3. Xavier and Magneto find the Omega Sentinel and erase her operating system, restoring Karima's
human soul. She in turn helps Shola, Callisto and the rest subdue the Magistrates.
