NEW X-MEN #151 (20-21)
One day. Scott stands over Jean's grave. We see bare trees and leaves on the ground, which probably are topical.
NEW X-MEN #151 (22) ~ NEW X-MEN #154 (22)
The same day as X 151 (20-21). This segment must occur after Emma's appearance in UX 442. The Xorn/Magneto affair
happened "this past year." Scott mentions that "Professor X has retired" - this may be a reference to Xavier's stepping down as
headmaster, a decision he announced in X 138 (10-14), but not to Xavier's leaving, which he does not know until X 155. At
Jean's grave, Emma Frost tries to convince Scott to reopen Xavier's school. The bare trees and autumn leaves on the ground are
probably topical, and who knows why Emma's wearing a fur coat and hat.
NEW X-MEN #154 (23)
The same day as X 154 (22). This segment probably occurs before W3 7. Thanks to the intercession of the deceased Jean Grey,
seeking to avoid a bleak future (portrayed in X 151-154), Scott accepts Emma as his lover. We see blowing autumn leaves,
which probably are topical.
NEW X-MEN #155
The same day as X 154 (23). Scott asks Hank if Xavier is "planning on rebuilding the school," which is seen in ruins after its
destruction in X 147-FB (20-21). Hank answers that "he's left that up to us, Scott. He's gone to Genosha with Logan...and I'm
not sure he's ever coming back." This dialog suggests that Xavier's departure was very recent, and Scott and Emma are probably
here right after the completion of the rescue effort referenced in UX 442; Hank may have been stationed at the Institute. Emma
wants to restart the school, but Scott and Hank aren't enthusiastic about the idea; there are no construction vehicles or any sign of
rebuilding at the Institute. Emma and the Cuckoos encounter mutant haters torching the temporary shelter for school survivors in
Salem Center - last seen in NM2 13 (3-23) - while Scott and Hank discover that Cassandra Nova was freed from her force field
prison when the school was destroyed. The falling autumn leaves are probably topical.
NEW X-MEN #156 (1-22:3)
The same day as X 155. It is "several days" before X 156 (22-24). Hank and Scott argue, then respond to Emma's summons for
help against the attack on the shelter, where a mutant boy named Germaine is killed. The experience convinces Scott to join
Emma in rebuilding the Institute. Since we see the Institute under reconstruction in XX 46 (12-23), this segment must occur
before then. Green trees in Westchester.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #2/2 - FB
One day. Spidey fights and defeats the Rhino, who endangers a school bus full of kids; the bus may not necessarily be for the
normal school year.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #2/2
The same day as SMU 2/2-FB. Mary Jane has an acting gig, so this story likely occurs after her first disastrous attempt at getting
an acting job in ASM 505 (10-22). M.J. ponders her worth as she considers Peter's contributions as Spidey; it would make sense
for this to occur after she loses the acting gig in ASM 505. Waning crescent moon.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #3 (1-5)
One night, shortly after A/TB 2. The Thunderbolts force the Wizard to give them his anti-gravity discs.
Wednesday, July 2
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #3 (6-22)
The day after A/TB 3 (1-5). It is "all these months" after TB 75 (24-37). Hawkeye discovers that the Avengers have been spying
on the Thunderbolts, and while Karla grows suspicious of "Cobalt Man," Tony starts seeing things from the Thunderbolts'
perspective. The Thunderbolts infiltrate the Magneto protocol array above the earth and construct a Liberator, a device that
drains transnormal energy across the planet. Green vegetation in New York.
The same day as A/TB 3 (6-22). The Liberator collects energy from sources all over earth and the Avengers rush to Thunderbolts
HQ to stop it. The two teams battle, Tony Stark's ruse is exposed, and the collected energy in the Liberator is transferred to
Moonstone, who unleashes it. Reed and Sue Richards cameo.
The same day as A/TB 4. It is "a few months" before TB 105. As Moonstone comes unglued and threatens the world with her
power, the Avengers and Thunderbolts try to stop her. Zemo gets burned saving Cap, then Jolt appears from Counter-Earth and
Hawkeye must decide to help or fight Karla.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #6 (1-16)
The same day as A/TB 5. It is "weeks" before A/TB 6 (17-20). The Avengers battle the Thunderbolts over Moonstone's fate,
and ultimately the threat becomes so dire that Hawkeye must sacrifice her mind to defeat her. Zemo absconds with Karla's
X-TREME X-MEN #46 (12-23)
One day, shortly after NM2 13 (3-23). This segment must occur before XU2 3 (1-2), M/KSM 6 (4-22), and EX3 46. The X-
Treme team assist with recovery, not rescue, efforts (and thus probably post-UX 442) in New York City, where we see Cyclops,
Cap, and Thor (in classic costume and thus after the Reigning); these efforts may have been going on for days since the arrival of
the X-Treme team after XX 46 (1-11). Storm flies from the city to Xavier's, where we see some reconstruction already
occurring; this places this segment after X 156 (1-22). After encountering Archangel there, Storm heads to Harry's Hideaway,
where she meets up with the original New Mutants. The X-Treme team and the New Mutants gather for dinner in the complex
beneath the destroyed mansion; this is another clue that this segment occurs after X 156 (1-22), as the Cassandra Nova situation
must have occurred before now - the basement levels may now be considered a safe place and the mutants displaced by the
torching of the Salem Center X-Corps building may now be residing here. Dani turns down Sam's offer to be an X-Man and
Storm rallies the X-Treme team to join her as XSE marshals. Rachel renames herself Marvel Girl. Green grass and trees in New
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #509
One day. It is not long after "June 23, 2004," the postmark date of a letter that Peter receives, presumably written by Gwen Stacy
around ASM 119-120. M.J. gets a part in a play that is referenced in M/KSM 5, so this story must occur before M/KSM 1. That
rainy night, Peter visits Gwen's grave and is attacked by two mysterious figures, from whom he escapes. We see green, leafy
trees and bare trees in New York. Full moon.
Thursday, July 3
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #510
The day after ASM 509. "It's Thursday." The two mysterious figures, Gabriel and Sarah, lure Spidey into a bomb trap which
Spidey survives. Spidey has Lieutenant Lamont analyze Gwen's letter for tracings of a second page; they discover that Gwen
was pregnant and delivered twins Gabriel and Sarah, who, according to my calculations are nearly 17 years old (their birth
occurring around ASM 94-98). May makes a comment that suggests that it is "June," which may be close.
WEAPON X v2 #18 - FB
One day, "several weeks" before WX 18. Cyclops notes that Cable "recently informed" the X-Men that Neverland is a myth,
following WX2 13; this flashback likely occurs after WX:DOFN 3-FB (6-7). Logan mentions the files he accessed in the
Weapon Plus compound, which places this flashback after X 146, and by extension, after X 150 (30-31). Logan tells the X-Men
that it's time to take down Weapon X and that the way to do it is to plant a mole in the organization. Among those gathered is
Xavier, who is sitting, though not in a wheelchair; he must be crippled at this point, given that this flashback must occur after X
150 (30-31). Chamber volunteers to be the mole.
WEAPON X v2 #15
Perhaps the same day as WX2 18-FB. We see one corner of the Xavier Institute, in which Chamber's room is located; this
structure must be part of the new facility, not the one destroyed in X 147-FB. Chamber's act to get him noticed by Weapon X
goes into effect: he causes trouble in a Manhattan bar and the X-Men - Cyclops, Archangel, Husk, Wolverine, and Iceman (who
must be using an image inducer to make himself look normal) - try to talk him down, but when Jono lashes out at them, they
subdue him and hand him over to the authorities. "Hours later," Brent Jackson shows up in Chamber's prison cell to offer him a
place in Weapon X. We surmise that after this point, Logan spends most of the summer away from the Institute. We see green
grass and trees and warm picnic weather at Xavier's, but we also see autumn leaves, which must be topical.
X-STATIX #19 (1-5)
One night. Vivisector and his actor boyfriend Brandon Cody attend a premiere of Cody's first movie. Dr. Finlay tells Xavier
he's terminating his employment at Xavier's lab. Xavier is in a wheelchair here, so this segment must occur after X 150 (1-31).
Friday, July 4: Independence Day
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #511
The day after ASM 510. Peter thinks that any children of Gwen's would "still be children." When Peter runs a DNA test, he
encounters Sarah and discovers she looks just like Gwen did. Peter confirms that Gabriel and Sarah are Gwen's kids, then M.J.
finds out what's going on and tells Peter she knows who the father is. Green grass and trees. Full moon.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #512 (1-21:1)
The same day as ASM 511. Mary Jane tells Peter that Norman Osborn is the father of Gwen's kids.
X-STATIX #19 (6-9)
Probably the night of the day after XS 19 (1-5). Finlay offers Vivisector a formula that will eliminate his mutant powers. Lacuna
miraculously emerges from her coma on the set of her TV show.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #2 (1-13)
One night, two weeks after DD:F 1 (16-26). Nero watches the late night news at home. The news highlight is about the serial
killer dubbed "Johnny Sockets" on the loose in New York City, having committed "the third such murder in as many weeks."
The news also notes the shift of crime from Hell's Kitchen to other parts of New York (reflective of Daredevil becoming the new
Kingpin); this shift is detailed in DD2 56. A woman enters the room and tells Nero it's time to go to the club. Matt (no goatee)
can't sleep because of the heat and quietness of his neighborhood, so he goes on patrol as Daredevil, which he admits is
pointless, since he's "kicked the bad guys out of Hell's Kitchen." He investigates a commotion in Chelsea, where he sees
criminals tied up on the ground as the police arrive. Detective Chris Gonzalez is told by another police officer that the criminals
are part of a drug ring that a group of new super-heroes called the Santerians apparently just busted up. It is "day twenty of
what's being called the deadliest heat wave in New York history."
Saturday, July 5
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #512 (21:2-22)
The morning after ASM 512 (1-21). Determining that Gwen's kids are dying, Peter vows to find and save them.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #513
The same day as ASM 512 (21-22). This story must occur before M/KSM 1 (1-15). To find Gabriel and Sarah, Spidey holds a
press conference and arranges to meet them at the Brooklyn Bridge. Spidey tells the twins the truth about their father, but while
Sarah believes Spidey, Gabriel doesn't. Spidey kicks Gabriel off the bridge and saves Sarah from falling off the bridge after she
is shot by a cop. As Spidey takes Sarah to the hospital, Gabriel heads to a subterranean chamber where he finds Goblin costumes
left for him and Sarah by Norman.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #514
The same day as ASM 513. It is "two days" before ASM 515 (1-15) and must be more than just "several weeks" before PPTSS2
23 (2). Gabriel takes up the mantle of the Green Goblin after he listens to a taped message from his father and injects himself
with the Goblin serum, which halts his accelerated aging process. Meanwhile at the hospital, Spidey saves Sarah's life by
donating his blood. When Spidey recovers, M.J. tells him that there is a five million dollar reward for a picture of him without
his mask on; this can't be the same reward as was offered in M/KSM 5-8. A now-crazed Gabriel attacks Spidey and when Sarah
steps in to help the wall-crawler, she is forced to shoot down Gabriel's glider into the harbor. Sarah leaves, Spidey passes out,
and an amnesiac Gabriel washes up on a nearby shore, where it is warm enough for a family to wear bathing suits.
X-STATIX #19 (10)
Probably the day after XS 19 (6-9). Finlay runs some tests on Vivisector.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #2 - FB (14:1-14:3, 14:5-14:7, 15:2-15:4, 16:1-16:3, 16:5-16:7, 17:2-17:4)
Perhaps the night of the day after DD:F 2 (1-13). Johnny Sockets kills a woman in a back alley behind a night club and is chased
off by a bouncer.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #2 (14-17)
The same night as DD:F 2-FB. Nero watches TV news coverage of the murder that Johnny Sockets committed.
Sunday, July 6
X-STATIX #19 (11-15)
Probably the day after XS 19 (10). Vivisector gets into an altercation with his teammates when he announces his intention to
take Finlay's formula. Anarchist's face is slashed and Guy needs to be placed in a sensory depravation chamber "for a few days."
NEW X-MEN #156 (22:4-24)
One day, "several days" after X 156 (1-22). Scott apologizes to Jean at her grave. We see green and bare trees and fallen
autumn leaves at Xavier's, which is under reconstruction and is clearly not finished, despite Scott's statement that "we've rebuilt
the school." Members of the Uncanny team appear here.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #2 (18-20)
The night of the day after DD:F 2 (14-17). Because Jessica is a private eye here, this segment must occur before PULSE 1 (3-
22). At "10:58 PM," Matt and Foggy review their latest case with client Maggie Farrell. Sitting in as well is Jessica Jones (not
visibly pregnant), who Matt is trying to bring in as a private investigator for the case. When they see that Maggie has a black
eye, Matt inquires about spousal abuse, but Maggie denies it and storms out of the office.
Monday, July 7
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #515 - FB (2:3)
One morning. Peter kisses M.J. on his way to work.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #515 (1-15)
The same day as ASM 516-FB (2:3). It is "two days" after ASM 514 and "a little over two years" after ASM 515 FB (8:4).
This segment occurs before PPTSS2 23 (1-9) and must occur before SM/RS 1. It is a school day, probably during a summer school session; this may be confirmed by the fact that Peter has to substitute teach a "remedial citizenship" class. Charlie Weiderman shows up to Peter's school and gets Peter to agree to be a reference for an interview he wants to line up with Tony Stark; Weiderman wants money to fund the development of a military skinsuit he conceived. Peter hesitantly agrees out of guilt, and Charlie tells Peter he'll send Peter "all the data I've got so far, care of your aunt, since I've still got her address" - this is likely May's Forest Hills address, an indication that this segment occurs before M/KSM 1 (1-15), especially given that ASM 509 occurs before M/KSM 5.
X-STATIX #19 (16:1-16:3)
Probably the night of the day after XS 19 (11-15). Cody states that "the first weekend box-office" for his movie was abysmal, so
it's probably early in the week following the movie opening in XS 19 (1-5). Vivisector takes Cody out to dinner.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #2 (21-30)
Probably the night after DD:F 2 (18-20). Matt spies on Maggie and Sean at their house in Hoboken. Maggie and Sean have a
fight and Sean leaves the house. Sean says he likes to go for walks in the city, but Maggie accuses him of having another lover.
Matt follows Sean to New York City and leaps from rooftop to rooftop in an effort to spy on him. Suddenly, he is blasted out of
the sky by an energy attack and falls to the ground. A bunch of costumed characters stand over the fallen Murdock, ready to kick
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #3 (1-10)
The same night as DD:F 2 (21-30). Matt has been attacked by the Santerians, a new group of NYC super-heroes whose powers
are magical/voodoo in origin. The leader of the Santerians, Eluggua, says that Matt the Kingpin has cleaned up crime in Hell's
Kitchen, but he's simply pushed all of the crime into other districts. Eluggua then asks Matt what he's going to do about Johnny
Sockets, and Matt says nothing, since Johnny Sockets isn't killing people in Hell's Kitchen. Eluggua calls Matt a fake and they
fight. The Santerians beat up Matt and leave him alone. Matt wakes up in the alley later on and hears word that Johnny Sockets
has struck again.
Tuesday, July 8
X-STATIX #19 (16:4-18)
Probably the day after XS 19 (16). Guy is in his sensory depravation chamber, so it's within "a few days" after XS 19 (11-15).
Vivisector takes Finlay's formula and demonstrates his loss of power on Lacuna's TV show.
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #1
One day. Doc Ock tries to rob a bank, but is thwarted by an impregnable vault. When he discovers that a youth named Brigham
Fontaine is responsible for the vault design, Ock goes after him at a party that night. Despite Spidey's intervention, Doc Ock
abducts Fontaine. Peter and M.J. are back together, and it is likely this story occurs after ASM 501. It is Mary Jane's birthday,
so this story must occur the same calendar day as PPTSS @ 9/3 (1-10). Peter mentions that he tutored Fontaine "last year at
Midtown High;" this indicates that Peter has been teaching for at least a year, and this placement puts this story after Peter's
second year of teaching.
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #2 (1-3)
The same day as SM/DO:OR 1. Doc Ock convinces Fontaine to help him break into the bank vault.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #3 (11-32)
The day after DD:F 3 (1-10). Matt stays home from work (so it's probably a weekday) and spends the day recovering from his
wounds. He calls up Maggie and Sean Farrell, his latest clients, and asks Maggie to meet him tomorrow. That night he goes out
and tracks down the Santerians and he starts to battle them again to show them who the boss of Hell's Kitchen is.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #4 (1-9)
The same night as DD:F 3 (11-22). Daredevil battles the Santerians again and defeats them. They call a truce and go their
Wednesday, July 9
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #2 (4-22)
The day after SM/DO:OR 2 (1-3). Dock Ock attacks the U.S. Army Center Research Lab to fetch materials that Fontaine needs,
and Spidey fails to stop them. Ock takes Fontaine to an underground lab where Fontaine whips up a belt with the power to
destroy the bank vault. Spidey finds him there, and after a tussle with Ock, "rescues" Fontaine from Ock. Later, Peter chats with
M.J. and Fontaine voluntarily returns to Ock at his Pier 75 lab.
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #3 (1-4)
The same day as SM/DO:OR 2 (4-22). Fontaine offers to help Dr. Octopus.
X-STATIX #19 (19-22)
Probably the day after XS 19 (16-18). Cody leaves Vivisector and X-Statix boots him from the team. As X-Statix battle mutated
loggers in Newfoundland, Finlay intends to become the next Vivisector with Miles' genetic material.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #4 (10-28)
The day after DD:F 4 (1-9). Matt meets with Maggie Farrell to discuss her lawsuit. Matt asks her if she's being abused by her
husband Sean. She denies it and fires Matt. That night, Johnny Sockets kills his latest victim. At Nero's residence, Nero
watches the evening news again. Barry Fling is interviewing the new Police Commissioner Chris Gonzalez about the Johnny
Sockets crime-wave. Daredevil breaks into Nero's residence and says he's figured out that Nero is Eleggua. Daredevil asks why
Nero fights crime, and Nero explains. Nero asks Daredevil to help catch Johnny Sockets, and Daredevil leaves, refusing to help.
The TV news reports that the police might have a suspect in the Johnny Sockets case. Tony Stark has a fund-raiser on this night.
It is baseball season, since a newspaper headline states, "Mets slide continues." Green shrubs and light clothing.
Thursday, July 10
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #5 (4:3-13)
The day after DD:F 4 (10-28). It is "a couple of years" after DD saved Guida from the Matador. Matt is at his office when FBI
agent Guida barges in and demands to speak with Matt. He tells Matt that the FBI has received its first lead in the Johnny
Sockets case - an old address book that belonged to Matt. It contains the addresses of many of Matt's former clients, all victims
of Sockets. Matt figures out that the book was stolen from his office. Guida returns the book to Matt and warns Matt the FBI
might be paying him a visit soon to ask him about the murders. Matt examines the book and picks up the scent of Sean Farrell's
cologne. Guida leaves and Matt calls up Maggie and tries to warn her, but Sean hangs up the phone on her.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #6 - FB (8:5)
The same day as DD:F 5 (4-13). Maggie sneaks up on Sean to stab him.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #5 (14-25)
The same day as DD:F 6-FB (8:5). Matt has a limo driver take him to the Farrells' house in New Jersey, but when he gets there,
he breaks inside to find Sean bleeding to death and talking about how he was always jealous of Matt. Matt figures out that it's
Maggie, not Sean, who is the Johnny Sockets killer. Sean tells Matt that Maggie is heading to his law office. Matt races back to
New York City. At the law office, Maggie drugs Foggy and prepares to pluck out his eyes.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #6 (1-13)
The same day as DD:F 5 (14-25). It is probably a few days before DD:F 6 (14-24). It can't be "two years" after DD:F 6-FB
(7:2-7:3). Matt races back to his law office to prevent Maggie Farrell, who he has discovered is the serial killer "Johnny
Sockets," from killing Foggy Nelson. He busts in just in time and Maggie goes into a rant about how it's Matt's fault that she's
had such a cruel life, and thus it's his fault that she's a serial killer. The FBI bursts in, and when Maggie tries to surrender, one
of the Feds accidently shoots her in a moment of panic. As she dies, she whispers a secret in Matt's ear that she's the daughter of
the blind man young Matt Murdock saved from being hit by a truck of radioactive chemicals. This man molested young Maggie
as a little girl, and this would've been prevented if Matt had not saved the old man from being hit by the truck.
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #3 (5-22)
Probably the day after SM/DO:OR 3 (1-4). Ock and Fontaine successfully break into the bank vault (on a day the bank is open)
and steal the contents. News reports force Peter to end his and M/J.'s "make-up trip." Ock and Fontaine break into Central Bank
Research Center so Fontaine can give Ock more power. Spidey intervenes but is defeated when Fontaine assist Ock. The bad
guys head back to Ock's lair where they argue. Fontaine heads to a TV station with a plot and a weapon up his sleeve. Green
trees and brown grass.
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #4
The same day as SM/DO:OR 3 (5-22). Spidey and Doc Ock show up at the TV station and in the ensuing battle, Fontaine's
mind is taken over by his weapon, which seeks a greater power source. Spidey and Ock follow Fontaine to a power plant.
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #5 (1-21)
The same night as SM/DO:OR 4. Spidey pursues Ock and Brigham to a chemical plant, then a nuclear plant, where Brigham
almost becomes one with the machine, then nearly dies before being saved by Ock, who is defeated by Spidey. Full moon.
Friday, July 11
SPIDER-MAN/DOCTOR OCTOPUS: OUT OF REACH #5 (22)
The day after SM/DO:OR 5 (1-21). Recuperating in the hospital, Brigham talks to news reporters.
PUNISHER: BLOODY VALENTINE #1 - FB (8-10)
One day, sometime before P:RX 1 (4-7). Vincent Carraciola kills Suspiria's husband and kidnaps her daughter. It's a sunny day
on the beach in Italy.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS SUPER SUMMER SPECTACULAR #1/3
One day. Franklin's parents call him for dinner, but he and Herbie have switched bodies. After flying around town they switch
back to normal, but Franklin remembers HERBIE's security codes. The FF appear in their classic costumes (blue suit with black
gloves, boots, belts, and neck-areas, and a blue 4 on the chest on a white circle). Short sleeve weather in New York City.
Saturday, July 12
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #3
One day. After a chance encounter with Spidey, a boy decides not to hold up a store.
X-STATIX #20 (1-9)
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #6 - FB (2:1)
One day, "a few months" before NC3 6 (2:2-2:3). Ghosts are starting to appear in the New York subway more frequently.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #7 - FB (15-16)
One day, "a few months" after CA5 7-FB (11-14). Nomad beats up suspected perps, then wakes up in a hotel room and feels
himself going insane.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS SUPER SUMMER SPECTACULAR #1/4
One day. After being denied a trampoline for the roof of the Baxter Building, Franklin uses a molecular density recalibrator to
simulate bouncing. He accidentally bounces of the roof and past the White House, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the St. Louis
Arch, and Mt. Rushmore, and ends up at the Grand Canyon. With the device broken, Franklin has to ride Herbie to get home.
Sunday, July 13
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #3/2
One morning. This story must occur before M/KSM 3-FB (15:2). Spidey battles and defeats the Vulture.
X-STATIX #20 (10-21)
The day after XS 20 (1-9). Myles flies to New Hampshire to attend his father's sixtieth birthday party. The new Vivisector
crashes the party and tries to kill Myles' father, but Myles saves his dad and Finlay is killed. X-Statix retrieves Myles and
teleports him to their headquarters, where Myles uses good feelings, not anger, to turn back into Vivisector.
One day. To get Franklin to stop playing so many video games, Sue gives him the comic book "Protectors of Peace" to read.
Franklin uses a machine to bring the characters to life, and when it's over he lets his mom know that it was more exciting than
video games. Sue appears in her classic FF costume.
One night, several days prior to W/P 1 (17-20). Contract killer Harvey Long breaks out of prison and learns of a sanctuary called
Erewhon from a guy named Gottlieb. Long begins his trip to Erewhon the day after this flashback, and it took Napoleon at least
three days to get there in the traveling montage before this -- so either this full moon is incorrect, or the one in the main body of
the series is, or it takes a full month for Harvey to get to Erewhon. Green grass.
DAREDEVIL: FATHER #6 (14-24:7)
One night, probably a few days after DD:F 6 (1-13). Matt is in costume, which must be an exception to his giving up the
costumed identity during this time. As Daredevil swings across rooftops on patrol, he spots the Santerians busting a criminal
gang. He moves on and pays a visit to Maggie Farrell's dad, who he informs of his daughter's death. Matt tells him he knows he
molested her, and the old man breaks down crying.
Monday, July 14
One day, "weeks" after EX3 46-FB. New York City appears normal, so this story must occur after XX 46 (12-23) and the city's
rebuilding likely took a remarkably short time. The Institute is a building site; they've made considerable headway on rebuilding
it, but it's obviously very far from finished. The Exiles return to the mainstream Marvel Universe and are given a new member,
Namora, and a mission to leave their possessions and earn their wings. Namora rebels and seeks aid from Namor, who brings her
to the Fantastic Four, who in turn imprison her. The Exiles drop by the Xavier Institute and run into Beak. The Tallus informs
them that they must rescue Namora. Also appearing are Angel Salvadore and her brood, Beast, Nightcrawler, and Juggernaut in
his gray and gold costume. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #4 (1-10)
One day. Powerhouse and Masterblaster try to rob a bank, but Spidey defeats them. A bystander falls for Powerhouse. Green
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #4/2
One day, "two years" after SMU2 4/2-FB. Thomas Mitford tries in vain to get Joseph Waking-Bear to join his hospital staff.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #6 (17-20)
One day, "weeks" after A/TB 6 (1-16). This segment occurs "two months" before TB2 1 and "months" before TB2 8 (7-21).
Given the presence of Hawkeye with no armored sleeve, this segment must occur before DD2 61 (3-5), M/KSM 2, HAWK3 1 (3-
17), and A3 77. The catatonic Karla is in the Avengers' infirmary. Jolt decides to return to Counter-Earth. Smithers returns to
Seagate Penitentiary and Jenkins is released from prison, vowing to start up the Thunderbolts again. Melissa turns down an offer
to join the Avengers and Eric gives up his powers. Warbird offers Dallas a job with the DHS.
AVENGERS/THUNDERBOLTS #6 (23)
Probably the same day as A/TB 6 (17-20). This segment occurs before TB2 17-FB (16:3), TB 101-FB, and TB 106-FB. In
Germany, Zemo takes up his mask and a resolves to fulfill a mission.
X-STATIX #20 (22)
Perhaps the night of the day after XS 20 (10-21). X-Statix attends a charity gala, their first appearance with the re-formed
Tuesday, July 15
The day after EX3 46. The Exiles and Beak head to the Baxter Building, where they fight the Fantastic Four and Namor.
The same day as EX3 47. It is "a few months" before X 162, but also "a few weeks" before X 163; the former is probably right.
Reed Richards determines that the Exiles' mission is to leave Nocturne behind and take Beak with them. Because Beak is phased
out of time, Angel believes that he up and left her. That morning the Exiles and Beak leave Nocturne behind, and Nocturne is
approached by Exodus to join his brotherhood (where she shows up in X 161). Sub-Mariner, the FF, Angel and the brood,
Beast, Northstar, and Nightcrawler appear.
One day, sometime after T2 79 (21-24). Given the press questions about Spike's death, this story cannot occur long after XS 20
(22). Russian terrorists abduct Doop and turn him into a super-weapon. X-Statix enlists the aid of the Avengers, consisting of
Cap, Iron Man, Hawkeye (without the armored sleeve introduced in A3 77), Scarlet Witch (back in classic costume), Ant-Man
(also back in classic costume), and Thor (back with the team and in classic costume). In the ensuing battle, Doop's brain
explodes into six pieces that end up in different locations around the globe and in Asgard, which is back in its own dimension.
Both teams vow to retrieve the pieces, which must be done within "three days" (thus three days before XS 25), or Doop will die.
Green grass and trees in New York. Full moon.
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (1)
One "Tuesday" night. She-Hulk and her colleague, Pug, summon Spidey to offer him a chance to file suit against J. Jonah
Wednesday, July 16
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (2)
On a "Wednesday," a process server informs JJJ that he's being sued by Spidey. The Daily Bugle spread on the recap page,
along with its date of "June 9, 2004," is just a page format; I don't consider it to be "real."
Probably the day after XS 21. Cap fights the Anarchist in Thailand and gets a piece of Doop's brain. Dead Girl fights the Scarlet
Witch on a ship in the Atlantic and gets another piece.
Probably the same day as XS 22. After tricking Vivisector, Hawkeye gets a piece of Doop's brain in Azania. Venus Dee Milo
wins another piece of the brain from Ant-Man in Antarctica. Full moon.
Thursday, July 17
Probably the day after XS 23. Guy Smith battles Iron Man in France, where we see green grass and trees and weather warm
enough to be naked. Guy beats Shellhead, but gives him his piece of Doop's brain.
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (3:1-3:4)
On a "Thursday," Peter and M.J. discuss Spidey's lawsuit against Jameson.
WEAPON X v2 #28 - FB
One day. This flashback occurs before WX2 26 (1-10) and probably occurs after WX2 14. Mr. Sinister shows Scalphunter his
latest creation, Hans.
Friday, July 18
It must be the day after XS 24., as it is "three days" after XS 21. Given Hawkeye's costume, this story must occur before DD2
61 (3-5), M/KSM 2, HAWK3 1 (3-17), and A3 77. Thor must appear here before T2 80 (7-22). Thor battles Doop in Asgard,
but when the Valkyrior awaken, the Avengers and X-Statix team up. When Doop starts to die, the two teams restore his brain
and Cap determines that X-Statix is responsible enough to care for Doop. Later, back at their headquarters, the members of X-
Statix, figuring they've lost their edge, decide to break up.
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (3:5-4)
On a "Friday," She-Hulk and Pug discuss Spidey's lawsuit against Jameson.
Saturday, July 19
MARVEL PREVIEWS #32
One "Saturday," the "19th" of a summer month that follows a month with 30 days (so it must be July). Franklin's "at camp," so it's Herbie's day off. He spends the day getting buffed, playing video games, getting a tan, saving the city from aliens, and receiving the key to the city from the mayor. When Franklin returns home early, Herbie sadly glances at his key to the city.
GLA #1 - FB (12:2-16:1)
One day. The appearance of Vision and Hawkeye here places this flashback before A 500, and Thor's presence in classic
costume places the flashback between T2 79 (21-24) and T2 80 (7-22) - perhaps around the time he was with the Avengers in
XS 21-26. On an animal rights tear, the new Ani-Men attack a modeling shoot in Milwaukee. The Great Lakes Avengers
respond, but they're sidelined by the Avengers.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #3 (1-2)
One night. In New Orleans, Gambit accepts a job from a Mr. Green to retrieve some discs from Tyler Winn, a man he is told is a
rogue CIA agent. Full moon.
WOLVERINE/PUNISHER #1 (17-20)
One afternoon, probably several days after W/P 1-FB (18). It is "ten years" after W/P 1-FB (16). Erewhon has grown
tremendously, and the town's ruling Council announces the arrival of a great prize in "a matter of days" - the Punisher.
Currently Erewhon is made up almost exclusively of criminals hiding from him, and they all want vengeance.
Sunday, July 20
WOLVERINE/PUNISHER #1 (21-22)
The early morning after W/P 1 (17-20). I've placed this series between PUN7 6 and 7; if this is right, then this segment should
occur long enough after PUN7 6 for Castle to heal from injuries sustained in that issue (which I've placed on June 20). Pursued
by the Punisher, Harvey Long runs through the jungle and encounters Wolverine. Full moon.
The same day as W/P 1 (21-22). It is "ten years" after W/P 2-FB (15-16) and "years" after W/P 2-FB (18). Wolverine, hired to
ensure Harvey Long testifies against his former bosses, clashes with the Punisher. As the two fight, Harvey runs away, arriving
in Erewhon at sunrise. Logan and Frank call a truce and follow his trail into the town, but there's no sign of him. The Lady
takes Wolverine aside and implores him to help her escape from Erewhon, and that night the Atheist and the Demon plead their
cases to the Council, that they should each be the one to kill the Punisher. The Council discovers that the Lady has skipped town
with Logan. The Atheist is dispatched to kill them both, and Gottlieb makes an offering, the head of Harvey Long, to a shadowy
figure he calls "the founding father."
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #3 (3-11)
The day after XU2 3 (1-2). Gambit discovers the true story of the discs, saves Winn from CIA operatives, and loses his earnings
in the process. He says that the discs will go to "a schoolmaster in Westchester," but that may be a reference to Cyclops, not
X-STATIX #26 - FB (5-6:2)
One night. X-Statix is disbanding, and at their farewell party, Guy has a premonition about their final mission. We see a number
of guests dressed up like Silver Age Marvel heroes; if these are the real heroes (who may have been requested to wear classic
costumes to the event), then Thor must appear here before T2 80 (7-22) and I have the Surfer here prior to SS4 14.
X-STATIX #26 - FB (7-11:3)
The same night as XS 26-FB (5-6). X-Statix leave their party and meet to review their mission: taking out armed gunmen who
have overrun a mansion. Green grass and trees in California.
X-STATIX #26 - FB (22-23)
The same night as XS 26-FB (7-11). X-Statix teleport to their mission.
The same night as XS 26-FB (22-23). X-Statix is slaughtered by the gunmen at the mansion.
Monday, July 21
The early morning after W/P 2. Wolverine and the Lady are ambushed by the Atheist and a party of men; the Lady is fatally shot
and Logan escapes. Books sneaks into the Punisher's hotel room and Frank stops him from stealing his weapons. Frank sees the
entire town of Erewhon standing outside, and they open fire, causing Frank to be caught under a collapsing ceiling. As Frank
considers sawing off his own leg to escape, Wolverine stumbles into a trap laid by the Atheist and ends up strung up between two
trees, with the Atheist preparing to fire a crossbow bolt at him. Full moon.
The same early morning as W/P 3. Logan is shot through the head with an arrow, but manages to string up the Atheist. Van
Daemon can't bring himself to shoot the Punisher, and Castle kills him. Punisher goes on a killing spree and Logan and Castle
reconnoiter. The citizens of Erewhon revolt when they discover that Punisher was lured to the sanctuary to "cull the herd." The
"founding father" turns out to be the corpse of Hitler. Full moon.
WOLVERINE/PUNISHER #5 (1-17)
The same day as W/P 4. Logan and Castle battle Napoleon, Gottlieb, and the revolting mob and are subdued. Gottlieb dies and
the Atheist escapes. Napoleon sets Wolverine and Punisher up to fight each other, but Castle kills Napoleon. Frank and Logan
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #3 (12)
The day after XU2 3 (3-11). Gambit reports back to Mr. Green.
X-FORCE: SHATTERSTAR #1
One day. Shatterstar, who has spent the last "two whole months" fighting in a Madripoor gladiatorial arena, is approached by a
hooded woman and asked to kill a villain she calls the Destroyer. That night, Shatterstar is attacked in his apartment by a trio of
ninjas, the leader of which is Dominicus Pierce, Shatterstar's target. He claims he is a sacred guardian of an ancient blade called
the Five Fingers of Annihilation. The hooded woman desires the blade, which is the only thing that can defeat a creature called
the Skornn, who feeds on mutants. Pierce entrusts the blade to Shatterstar. Elsewhere, later, one of Pierce's ninjas reveals
himself to be a traitor, working alongside the hooded woman, who is revealed to be Spiral. Full moon.
Tuesday, July 22
WOLVERINE/PUNISHER #5 (18-23)
The early morning after W/P 5 (1-17). Just before sunrise, Books sneaks in to release Frank and Logan. Later that morning,
Wolverine and the Punisher head to civilization. Logan notes that the Atheist escaped the trap he'd left him in, and the Punisher
promises to promptly return with enough weaponry to kill them all. In Erewhon, Books explains to the remaining townspeople
that without the Punisher, they'd be free men and that none of them wants that.
X-FORCE: SHATTERSTAR #2
Probably the day after XFOR:SH 1. Shatterstar, Pierce and his men assault Spiral's headquarters, little realizing they are walking
into a trap. Four female warriors attack and the turncoat ninja shows his true colors. During the battle, Shatterstar realizes that
the walls are holographic and he locates the way into Spiral's command center, a "dimensional womb" where platforms float in a
starry void. Shatterstar and Spiral duel, and Spiral gains the Annihilation blade and knocks Pierce off a platform, condemning
him to fall for eternity. Shatterstar knocks the blade out of her hand and she leaps after it. Shatterstar leaps after her as she
conjures a dimensional portal in their path and Shatterstar wakes up somewhere else. He is sucker-punched by a towering figure
who looks almost exactly like Cable. We see long sleeves in Madripoor.
X-FORCE: SHATTERSTAR #3
The same day as XFOR:SH 2. It is "several months" before XFOR2 1. Shatterstar discovers that he has landed on a parallel
earth and that Spiral rigged her dimensional portal so that he arrived here three years after she did. In that time, she has
conquered almost all of this world and has slain its Shatterstar. This Cable believes him to be an assassin in disguise, but when
they are both ambushed by Spiral's troops, Cable changes his mind and brings Shatterstar back to their base. Cable's small strike
force is the last rebellion against Spiral, who has now taken the name Apocalypse. Cable suddenly receives a psychic
transmission from Sunspot, who has spent the last six months infiltrating Spiral's castle; he almost stole back the Annihilation
blade, but was discovered and captured. Hoping to rescue him, Cable's force mounts up the Lockheeds for a last, desperate
assault on Spiral's floating fortress.
X-FORCE: SHATTERSTAR #4 (1-21)
The same day as XFOR:SH 3. Spiral throws Sunspot over the side of her floating castle, but he is rescued by Boomer on her
Lockheed. While Cable's forces attack Spiral's troops, Shatterstar engages her in a sword fight. He is on the verge of defeating
her when he is attacked by Dominicus Pierce. Using her time-manipulation powers, Spiral had let Pierce fall through the void for
over a hundred years, then retrieved him, and now he owes her his life. While Shatterstar battles Pierce, Spiral jumps to
Boomer's Lockheed and kills it with the Annihilation blade. The dying creature smashes into the castle, knocking Boomer,
Spiral, and Pierce over the side. Sunspot catches the former two while Pierce is fried by a blast of fire from Cable's mount.
Later, with Spiral captured and her reign over, Cable prepares to send Shatterstar and the Annihilation blade home. After some
questioning by Boomer, Spiral provides the technology to open the portal and Cable sends Shatterstar through, a final psychic
message ringing in his head as he returns to Madripoor.
HAWKEYE v3 #1 (3-17)
One day. Given the new Hawkeye costume in this story arc, this segment must occur after A/TB 6 (17-20). Clint Barton drives
his motorcycle "twelve hours" from New York to Myrtle Beach, where he gets pries into the life of a stripper named Peppermint
who is accosted by a guy named Jimmy Muscles. We see fireworks at night.
Wednesday, July 23
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #11 - FB (8:3)
One day. Curt Connors sees his son mourning his mother.
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (5)
One "Wednesday." The newspaper date of "June 23, 2004" may be close (although the year is topical). It also suggests two
weeks after the supposed June 9 setting of S-H3 4 (2). Smythe agrees to supply Scorpion with Spider-Slayers for an attack on
Spidey and JJJ during the courtroom proceedings.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #17 - FB (16:3)
One day, after A/TB 6 (23) and "months" before TB2 2 (1-9). Baron Zemo sends Killgrave after Andreas Von Strucker. The
depiction of Zemo and Andreas together in this panel is confusing, since Andreas would be unaware of Zemo's hand in this.
Thursday, July 24
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (6-18)
The day after S-H3 4 (5). On day one of the courtroom proceedings, Scorpion attacks and his defeated by Shulkie and Spidey.
The date "June 24, 2004" may not be quite right; I have it as July 24.
THOR v2 #80 (5-6)
One day, "one month" ("thirty days") before T2 80 (7-22). On their way to Gunin-Gap to destroy the mold for Mjolnir, Eitri and
two of his associate dwarves are drowned in the river Vuluspa and Loki locates the mold, a powerful tool he has been seeking.
HAWKEYE v3 #1 (18-25)
One day, a "couple" of days after HAWK3 1 (1-17). Clint confronts Peppermint's boyfriend Bailey, but discovers he didn't send
Jimmy Muscles after Peppermint. Suspecting Bailey's wife Belinda, Clint buys some archery equipment that night at Wal-Mart.
It is "kinda warm out to be wearin' jackets."
HAWKEYE v3 #2 (1-14)
The same day as HAWK3 1 (18-25). Clint uses his archery skills to follow up his investigation. We see fireworks again in
Myrtle Beach. Full moon.
Friday, July 25
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (19)
The day after S-H3 4 (6-18). On day two of the court proceedings, Pug extends Spidey's lawsuit to Peter Parker. The date "June
25, 2004" may not be quite right; I have it as July 25.
HAWKEYE v3 #2 (15-22)
The day after HAWK3 2 (1-14). Clint visits Belinda and follows up with further investigation.
HAWKEYE v3 #3 (4-5)
Probably the same day as HAWK3 2 (15-22). It is a day a public library would be open. Clint gets a Myrtle Beach librarian to
hack into Army personnel records and pays her with dinner and sex, which is a clue that this story arc should occur before Clint
hooks up with the Wasp in A3 83; that means that HAWK3 6 (21-23) should occur before A3 77. Full moon.
X-FORCE: SHATTERSTAR #4 (22)
One day, probably a few days after XFOR:SH 4 (1-21). Shatterstar thinks about the alternate Cable's inspiring words as he
climbs Mount Xixabangma towards a sacred temple.
Saturday, July 26
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (20)
The morning after S-H3 4 (19). Spidey settles the lawsuit at the GLK&H law offices, which must be open on a Saturday.
HAWKEYE v3 #3 (6-22)
The day after HAWK3 3 (4-5). Hawkeye heads to Miami to confront Alex Kreiter about the real reason for Peppermint's being
threatened - her discovery of a secret from Bailey's and Kreiter's Vietnam War experience. That night, Kreiter sends his goons
after Clint, who defeats them and delivers them back to Kreiter. When Clint gets too close to the truth, Kreiter commits suicide.
Bailey finds Peppermint and encourages her to kill Clint upon his return to Myrtle Beach. Full moon.
SHE-HULK v3 #10 - FB (21:2)
One day. Titania trains to battle She-Hulk.
DAREDEVIL v2 #56 - FB (9)
One day. Matt (with goatee) and Milla walk down a block of Hell's Kitchen that's been renovated, thanks to their efforts. The
renovation of Hell's Kitchen is also noted in PUN7 7 (1-11).
Sunday, July 27
HAWKEYE v3 #4
The day after HAWK3 3 (6-22). Clint returns to Myrtle Beach, where Peppermint is accidentally killed. Finding out more about
the Laos massacre, Clint suits up and confronts Scully, then decides to go to Laos. Full moon.
HAWKEYE v3 #6 - FB (4)
The same day as HAWK3 4. Clint, Bailey, and Scully prepare to leave for Laos.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6/2 (5:9-6)
On the night of the day Augie is released from prison, he auditions for a position as a thug for the Mercenary. According to a
wall calendar, it's either Sunday, the 29th day of a 31-day month or Sunday, the 28th day of a 30-day month.
Monday, July 28
SHE-HULK v3 #4 (21)
A "business day" shortly after S-H3 4 (20). Peter Parker and JJJ issue public apologies to Spidey while dressed in chicken suits.
HAWKEYE v3 #5
Probably the day after HAWK3 4. Hawkeye, Bailey, and Scully reach the sight of the Laos massacre, where Clint discovers the
reason for the massacre - the soldiers' greed for the contents of a temple that opens every forty years. Hawkeye uses a flare
arrow to cause the temple to open and an army of archers descends upon them. The reference to 2007 being forty years after the
Vietnam flashback must be topical. Full moon.
HAWKEYE v3 #6 (5-14)
The same night as HAWK3 5. It is "years" after HAWK3 6-FB (1-3) and a "week" before HAWK3 6 (15-16). Hawkeye dons
his costume for the first time in this story arc - it is a new costume featuring an armored left arm, so this story must occur after
XS 25 and A/TB 6 (17-20). Bailey dies and Hawkeye defeats the archers, but his hit by a poison arrow. Scully takes off with the
prized column from the temple.
WEAPON X v2 #16
One day, long enough after WX 15 for the doctors at Weapon X to give Chamber a new face through "surgery" (as noted in
WX2 19). It is "several years" after WX 16-FB. This story must occur after X 150 (1-31), as monitors in the Weapon X
compound show a recorded video of Weapon XV's attack on Magneto. Brent Jackson shows Jono around the Weapon X
compound and offers him a trial assignment, to kill John Sublime. Logan, probably here after UX 443, is seen doing surveillance
on Jono. Green trees.
WEAPON X v2 #17
The same day as WX2 16. Chamber meets Logan in a movie theater (in a place where it's raining) and discuss Jono's
assignment to infiltrate Weapon X for the X-Men. "Hours later," Jono agrees to kill Sublime, and that evening, he, Jackson,
Sauron, and Wild Child attack Sublime's headquarters, where it appears to be a normal business day. Sublime and his U-Men
root out the skulking Jono.
WEAPON X v2 #18
The same night as WX2 17. It is "several weeks" after WX2 18-FB. Jackson, Sauron, and Wild Child save Chamber, who then
finds and supposedly kills John Sublime and reports back to Wolverine.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6/2 (7)
Perhaps the night after ASMU2 6/2 (5:9-6). Augie tries to find Vivian, only to discover that her grandmother died while he was
in prison "last year" and that Vivian is married now.
SPIDER-MAN/RED SONJA #1
One night. Because M.J. is a stage actress, this story must occur after ASM 509 and so after ASM 515 (1-15). While he beats up
some burglars, Spider-Man chats with Mary Jane on the phone. Meanwhile, a senator goes to a museum and sees a necklace.
When he puts it on he's possessed by Kulan Gath, who turns the city medieval. Everyone is affected but Spider-Man. As he
makes his way to the museum, Kulan Gath, remembers that the last time he was in this era Red Sonja bonded with Mary Jane.
He calls Mary Jane to kill Spider-Man. She's bonded with Red Sonja through her sword just as Spider-Man finds her. The snow
may be topical.
The same night as SM/RS 1. As Kulan Gath changes the city, Venom (Eddie Brock) is hit by the wave. Elsewhere, Red Sonja
fights Spider-Man. J ust as he starts to calm her down, Venom attacks. Meanwhile, Kulan Gath and Jonah chat while Robbie
saves a kid from Vermin. Spider-Man and Red Sonja escape from Venom, but Spidey is taken away by a group of Kulan Gath's
The same night as SM/RS 2. Venom reports to Kulan Gath, who attacks him for his symbiote. Meanwhile, Spider-Man wakes up in a prison and sees Roobbie. Elsewhere, Red Sonja assembles an army, and they free Spider-Man during their attack. While Kulan Gath steals the symbiote, Red Sonja and Spidey defeat Vermin. Then they're attacked by the Lizard, the Scorpion, and the new Hobgoblin.
SPIDER-MAN/RED SONJA #4
The same night as SM/RS 3. Spider-Man and Red Sonja fight the villains, and Hobgoblin grabs Red Sonja and flies away. They
pass through the energy barrier and Hobgoblin reverts to his normal self. Meanwhile, Kulan Gath, bonded with the Venom
symbiote, attacks and captures Spidey. Red Sonja starts to remember some of Mary Jane's memories while she fights Hobgoblin.
After she defeats him she's shot by the police.
The same night as SM/RS 4. Kulan Gath has strung Spider-Man up in a tree. He expands the energy wave to transform more of New York, and it reaches Red Sonja. The policemen around her turn into his men and they take her to Kulan Gath. As he's about to kill them both, Brock attacks to get his symbiote back. Red Sonja breaks free and destroys Kulan Gath's necklace, turning New York back to normal. Red Sonja is sent back to Hyboria.
Tuesday, July 29
SPIDER-MAN/RED SONJA #5 (22)
The day after SM/RS 5 (1-20). Because Brock is Venom in SM/RS 5 (1-20), this segment must occur before M/KSM 1 (1-9).
Peter and Mary Jane get some Chinese food. Only Peter remembers the Red Sonja/Kulan Gath affair.
One day. Footage of a nice private zoo in Salina, Kansas.
SHE-HULK v4 #3/2
One day. Because Jen is on earth and appears to be in control of her power, and because GLK&H's comic book library is still
intact, this story must occur before S-H3 7. Jen returns some comic books she borrowed from GLK&H in S-H3 2.
DAREDEVIL v2 #73 - FB (5-6)
One night, "a few months" before DD2 73. Jennifer Norton spies her husband talking to a demonic imp on his shoulder.
Wednesday, July 30
WOLVERINE v3 #7
One day. It cannot be "two months" or "a couple months" after W3 6, but rather six months, as noted in W3 9; given Logan's
dream about the deceased Jean in W3 12, this issue probably occurs after X 154 (23). Blaine's reference to having served in
Vietnam with Logan "over thirty years ago, now" must be topical. Outside of El Paso, Wolverine interrupts a convenience store
robbery and discovers a tractor trailer full of the corpses of illegal Mexican immigrants who died of heatstroke. Logan heads into
El Paso to enlist the help of an old friend, Garcia Nestor, in tracking down the immigrant smuggling ring. Meanwhile, in
Portland, ATF agent Cassie Lathrop tries fruitlessly to track Logan down, and just as she's given up, she spies his El Paso
activities on the evening news. Green grass in Oregon.
One day, the day before PULSE 1. The Bugle's Terri Kidder does a piece on the Avengers and Jameson chews her out. Later
that day she is scooped by Fox News on a Spider-Man/Vulture battle. That evening, Terri hears that a few Oscorp staffers have
gone missing over the last week. She gets a quick interview with Norman Osborn before a reception he has at 8 PM, but when
she asks him about the missing people, he strangles her to death and, as the Green Goblin, dumps her body in the Central Park
reservoir. Leafy trees and jackets in New York. Full moon.
DAREDEVIL v2 #56 - FB (10-17)
One day, "months" before A4 9-FB. Reed Richards appears here with an unscarred face; this flashback likely occurs after FF
511. The Democratic Party of New York asks Matt (with goatee) to run for mayor of the city on their ticket and tell him that an
official request will come at a dinner "tomorrow." Matt then meets Reed Richards, Luke Cage, Peter Parker, and Stephen
Strange in a park, where we see short sleeves, green trees, and what appears to be warm weather. As the FBI surveys the
situation, the four chastize Matt for going too far and an argument ensues; they feel Matt has become a dictator, something about
which Reed should know.
DAREDEVIL v2 #65 - FB (26:4-32)
The same rainy day as DD2 56-FB (10-17). It must be much less than "12 months" before DD2 65. It is "a while" after DD2 5.
After Matt leaves the other heroes, he walks around town and finally goes to Dr. Strange's house for advice and assistance.
Mention of Karen Page's death seems to surprise Strange, who should know better, as he attended Karen's funeral. Matt's facial
hair doesn't quite match his goatee in DD2 56-FB (10-17).
DAREDEVIL v2 #56 - FB (18-22)
The same rainy night as DD2 65-FB (26-32). During a thunderstorm, Matt is attacked by a gang of Yakuza thugs.
DAREDEVIL v2 #57 - FB
The same rainy night as DD2 56-FB (18-22). Matt battles the Yakuza, sustaining heavy injury. When the FBI arrive on the
scene, Matt is gone.
Thursday, July 31
PULSE #1 (1-2)
The morning after DD2 57-FB. Ben Urich reads the Bugle coverage of the Yakuza battle of the night before.
DAREDEVIL v2 #56
The day after DD2 57-FB, so it must be the same day as PULSE 1 (1-2). It cannot be "almost a year to the day" after DD2 50.
Ben Urich talks to Milla in a diner about Daredevil's past year.
DAREDEVIL v2 #57
The same day as DD2 56. It is the day after DD2 57-FB, "a year" after DD2 50, and "a year or two" after the MGH drug started
on the East Coast. Ben continues talking to Milla, who notes that Matt is her husband.
DAREDEVIL v2 #58
The same day as DD2 57. It is supposed to be "about four months" after Matt's and Milla's wedding in DD2 74-FB (1-3) on
"May 4," but I have it as three months (just barely four months inclusive). It is "a year and a half" after DD2 35 (19-20), but this
may be an approximation signifying a time period of more than a year. Ben tells Milla he'll find out what happened to Matt.
After checking with Foggy, Ben finds Matt (with goatee) recuperating at the Waterfront Medical Center. FBI agents Driver and
Del Toro interrogate Yakuza member Sano Orii.
DAREDEVIL v2 #59 (1-9)
The same day as DD2 58. It is "9 days" before DD2 59 (10-22). As Orii is released, the Yakuza assassinate Agent Driver. The
news reaches Ben, who with Foggy has just witnessed Matt fall unconscious from a nervous breakdown.
WOLVERINE v3 #8
The day after W3 7. Cassie Lathrop has traveled to El Paso, where she shows Logan's sketch to the Border Patrol. Meanwhile,
Logan tracks down Ian Ritter, the man who organized the truckload of immigrants, but when he confronts him, Ritter is killed by
his assistant, who then sets the building on fire. The Border Patrol shows up, and Cassie leaps into the fire to save Logan, who
then has to save her. That night, acting on the information he got from Ritter's assistant, Logan swims the Rio into Mexico.
Friday, August 1
WOLVERINE v3 #9
The early morning after W3 8. It is "six months" after W3 6 (which I already placed in February). In Mexico, Logan confronts
some of Rojas' men, while in El Paso, Cassie tracks down Nestor's bar. Logan forces one of the men to drive him to Rojas'
estate. but the other two call ahead and many armed guards are waiting when Logan arrives. He cuts them all down and comes
face-to-face with Rojas, who is revealed to be a pregnant woman.
WOLVERINE v3 #10 (1-17)
The same early morning as W3 9. It's closing time at Nestor's bar, but Cassie continues to drink and refuses to leave.
Meanwhile in Mexico, Logan confronts Rojas, who reveals that the immigrants had all swallowed heroin-filled condoms and
were smuggling them into the US. She taunts Logan, daring him to kill her, but he refuses, struggling to control himself. As
soon as he storms out, Rojas goes into labor. Logan returns to Nestor's bar to sleep, and finds Cassie waiting. She asks to stay,
and he offers her the couch.
PULSE #1 (3-22)
The day after DD2 57-FB and PULSE 2. This segment must occur after DD:F 2 (18-20). Jessica Jones is not yet visibly
pregnant, yet according to my calculations she's over five months pregnant. She interviews for a job at the Daily Bugle, where
Jameson pitches a new section of the paper spotlighting super-heroes called "The Pulse," to which Ben Urich is assigned. Terri
Kidder's body is fished out of the reservoir.
WOLVERINE v3 #11 - FB
The same night ("twenty hours" after) as W3 10 (1-17). Logan returns to Rojas' estate, where he helps deliver her baby.
Saturday, August 2
WOLVERINE v3 #10 (18-21)
The early morning after W3 11-FB. When Cassie awakens, Logan is gone; Nestor said he went back across the river, with
"unfinished business" and at that moment, Logan bursts through the door of the bar, holding a crying newborn.
WOLVERINE v3 #11 (1-13)
The same day as W3 10 (18-21). Logan returns to Rojas' estate and searches for personal information, discovering that she has a
sister who is married and living in Illinois. Green trees and bushes in El Paso.
The day after PULSE 1 (3-22). References to "last night" and "yesterday" seem to suggest that PULSE 2 occurred the day before
this issue, but it may be three days after. Jessica (still not showing) and Luke argue about her new job at the Bugle, whose
reporters investigate Terri Kidder's murder. Ben Urich concludes that Norman Osborn is the murderer and contacts Peter Parker.
Iron Man cameos. Green, leafy trees in New York. We see people wearing coats, hats and scarves, but this may be topical.
The same day as PULSE 3. Ben and Peter discuss Ben's knowledge of Peter's secret identity and Peter tells Ben that Osborn is
the Green Goblin. Suspecting Osborn to be a killer, they vow to bring him down. The Bugle decides to expose Osborn and
notifies police. That night, the police, with Ben Urich and Jessica Jones, arrive at Oscorp to see Osborn and the Green Goblin
explodes onto the scene.
PULSE #5 (1-12)
The same day as PULSE 4. This segment must occur after SM/BC 5-FB (17). Spidey arrives and battles the Goblin, who gets
away. Jessica (still not looking pregnant; Spidey can't tell) thinks that the Goblin killed her fetus, but a doctor confirms that it's
alive and well. The doctor also states that the fetus "doesn't have any bones yet," but this can't be right, as this story occurs after
ALIAS 28, in which Jessica was already "three months pregnant." A news reporter states, "I didn't think we'd get a bigger news
story this year than the fall of Wilson Fisk;" the reference may not be to DD2 50 but to Fisk's conviction, which probably did
occur earlier this year. The reference apparently doesn't consider "Magneto's" attack on Manhattan, surely a bigger news item.
The "this year" statement does contradict the statement that DD2 56 (which ties into PULSE 1-2) occurs "almost a year to the
day" after DD2 50.
HAWKEYE v3 #6 (15-16)
One night. HAWK3 6 (5-14) is referred to as having occurred "last week." Hawkeye has tracked Scully to Hong Kong, where
he convinces him to help take down Belinda. The full moon is inconsistent with that in HAWK3 5.
Sunday, August 3
PULSE #5 (13-19)
Perhaps the morning after PULSE 5 (1-12), given that Cage was determined to get Osborn and that he wears different clothes
here than in PULSE 5 (1-12). This segment occurs "two or three months" before M/KSM 9. The Bugle reports that Osborn is
the Goblin and Osborn surrenders himself to police to appear as a victim. Cage publicly attacks Osborn, forcing Osborn to don
the Goblin mask and battle him. Spidey arrives and Cage subdues Osborn.
The same morning as PULSE 5 (13-19). The Goblin escapes from Cage (according to M/KSM 12) and takes people hostage in a
church, presumably during a Sunday morning service. "Four hours" later, Spidey catches up with him.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #1 (1-9)
The same "Sunday morning" as PULSE 5 (13-19). This story probably occurs after ASM 515 (1-15). This story occurs sometime after Iron Man's identity becomes public knowledge (IM3 55/2) and must occur after ASM 514, SMF2 2 (22), and SM/RS 5 (22). It is "three months" before M/KSM 10 (1-10). Spidey battles and defeats the Green Goblin.
PULSE #5 (20-21)
The same day as M/KSM 1 (1-9). The press has a field day with the capture of Osborn and his exposure as the Goblin and the
Bugle staff is delighted.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #1 (10-15)
The same day as PULSE 5 (20-21). A battered Peter arrives by cab at Aunt May's house in Queens, where he helps Aunt May
move out to a Manhattan apartment, unaware he's being watched. We see green and bare trees in New York.
WOLVERINE v3 #11 (14-18)
The day after W3 11 (1-13). Logan tracks down the sister and convinces her to adopt Rojas' baby. We see snow on the ground
in Illinois, but this must be topical.
Monday, August 4
PULSE #5 (22)
The day after PULSE 5 (13-21). This segment must occur before M/HOLSPEC '04. The Bugle's headline reads "Osborn
Jailed!!" Jessica reports to work.
MYSTIC ARCANA: SISTER GRIMM #1/2
One day, between RUN 17 (23) and RUN 18. Nico is residing at Father Flanagan's home for unwanted Goth kids. One night, she is confronted by Marie LaVeau, who retrieved the Black Mirror from the Minorus. She needs Nico's blood to deactivate a spell blocking its usage. After some fighting, Nico breaks the mirror and Marie LaVeau gets the final page of the Darkhold hidden inside.
HAWKEYE v3 #6 (17-21:4)
One night, shortly after HAWK3 6 (15-16). In Myrtle Beach, Hawkeye foils Belinda's scheme.
Tuesday, August 5
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #5 - FB (3:4-4)
One day, two days before ASMU2 5. Spidey nabs a robber but bystander John Murray is apprehended by police.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #5 - FB - FB
The same day as ASMU2 5-FB (3-4). Police find the robber all webbed up.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #5 - FB (5:2-5:3)

Then the real robber is brought into the station.

Myrtle Beach, while Belinda and Scully try to piece the column back together in Laos.
Wednesday, August 6
WOLVERINE v3 #11 (19-20)
One day, probably a few days after W3 11 (14-18). The Murillos have traveled to El Paso from Illinois.

SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #5
One day. ASMU2 5-FB (3-4) is referred to as having occurred "the day before yesterday." John Murray's son holds the Bugle
staff hostage in an effort to clear his father's name. Robbie Robertson gets the kid to hand over his gun and the police take the
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #5/2 (1-10)
One day, "a few weeks" before ASMU2 5/2 (11). Spidey thwarts some bank robbers and saves a hostage who nearly dies. We
see green trees and a little autumn color in New York.
WOLVERINE v3 #11 (21)
Perhaps the night of the day after W3 11 (19-20). Logan shows up at Cassie Lathrop's house, and is invited in for the night.
Green grass and green trees and rain in Portland. Logan is wearing his dog tags in this arc, suggesting that this is before he
returns to his Reload costume in AX3 1.
Friday, August 8
WOLVERINE v3 #12
One early morning, shortly after W3 11 (21). Logan has a dream about Jean while staying at Cassie Lathrop's place. A
newspaper headline reads "Capt. America captures Osama," with a picture of Cap, but this is probably an artist joke.
Leafy trees in Oregon. Full moon.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #6 - FB (11:1-11:2)
One day, "a little while" before M/KSM 6-FB (12). Osborn, jailed here after M/KSM 1 (1-9), diagnoses his guard's wife's
condition and prescribes something that will kill her. An incarcerated Rhino is shown here, probably before his miniaturization
in S-H3 5.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #11 (1-3)
One day. Curt Connors visits his psychiatrist. He "can't remember" how long it's been since his wife's death in SM:QL 4. The
doctor refers to Billy as a "ten-year-old boy," but she must be mistaken, as Billy is noted as being 16 in SM:QL 3.
ORDER v2 #2 - FB - FB (1/2:9-1/2:10)
One night. Becky Ryan performs on stage before screaming young fans.
Saturday, August 9
WOLVERINE v3 #13 (1-10)
One day, shortly after W3 12 and more than "two weeks" after Sabretooth's previous appearance (likely X 142). Hired by a
shady company, Sabretooth hunts a feral woman known as the Native in British Columbia. When she slaughters his hunting
party and defeats him, Sabretooth decides to try to get Wolverine to do the hard work for him. It is "supposed to be spring," and
we see gray skies and snow in B.C.
DAREDEVIL v2 #59 (10-22)
One day, "9 days" after DD2 59 (1-9). After nine days drifting in and out of consciousness (and thus unavailable for other
appearances), Matt awakens, clean shaven, in a safe house that Foggy arranged. Matt dons the costume for the first time "in a
long time" and goes to apologize to Luke and Jessica, who apparently have just moved in together. Luke tells Matt that Jessica is
pregnant, reinforcing the fact that she still doesn't show (although she does have a loose shirt on). That night, Daredevil, Cage,
Spider-Man, and Iron Fist invade the Yakuza's base.
DAREDEVIL v2 #60 (1-21)
The same night as DD2 59 (10-22). It is indeed a "couple of years" after DD2 21 (18-22). This segment occurs a "week" before
DD2 64 (1-12) and must occur before DD2 55 (17-22), CM6 19, and M/KSM 11. The four heroes kick Yakuza butt and Matt
tells his comrades that he's back in the super-hero business. He then sees Milla who confronts him about his state of mind and
its link to their relationship. We see falling leaves and a full moon.
Sunday, August 10
WOLVERINE v3 #13 (11-16)
The day after W3 13 (1-10). In the early hours of morning, Logan sneaks out of Cassie Lathrop's house and speeds away.
Presumably that night, Sabretooth gives his report to the shady company that hired him. We see evergreens, green bushes, and
rain in Oregon.
DAREDEVIL v2 #60 (22)
The rainy morning after DD2 60 (1-21). Ben Urich checks out his Pulse article about Daredevil's return and the Yakuza
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6/2 (8)
One day. At an early point in Augie's training as one of the Mercenary's thugs, he is humbled by the villain.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #11 (4-9)
The "Sunday" after PPTSS2 11 (1-3). Curt Connors tells his troubles to Peter Parker, but notes that a research grant he's to
discuss with the Montalbetti Foundation "tomorrow" could be a turning point for him. We see green grass and trees, warm
weather clothing, and people playing baseball in Queens.
Monday, August 11
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #11 (10-23)
The day after PPTSS2 11 (4-9). Mary Jane is "away for a week on a photo shoot," so this story must occur after ASM 505-FB.
Billy Connors is staying at his aunt's house at 2:30 PM, so it's likely that this story occurs during summer vacation. On a
"Monday," Curt is rejected by the Montalbetti Foundation. In anger, Curt goes to the Richardson Institute, the workplace of his
rival for the grant and an explosion ensues. He turns into the Lizard and he and Spidey fight.
WOLVERINE v3 #13 (17-22)
Possibly the day after W3 13 (11-16). Sabretooth tracks Logan to a Montana diner and gives him a file on the Native. Green
grass and bushes in Montana.
AVENGERS v3 #77
One day. Hawkeye (in his new costume with the armored sleeve) must appear here after HAWK3 6 (21-23), given that his casual
sex with the librarian in HAWK3 3 (4-5) should occur before his liaison with Jan in A3 83. A man is seen reading a newspaper
with a headline, "Red Skull Stopped!;" this suggests that this issue occurs right after A3 70 (1-15), but if this issue occurs in
sequential order with other issues of A3, then at least a few weeks must have passed, given that A3 72 occurs "a few weeks" after
A3 68. Cap, Hawkeye, and the Wasp fight the Wrecking Crew in England, where we see green grass and trees and people
wearing coats and jackets.
AVENGERS v3 #78
The same day as A3 77. It is "days" before A3 82. The Avengers defeat the Wrecking Crew, but local resident Kelsey Leigh
dies from injuries she sustains while defending Captain America from "Thunderball." Green grass and trees in England.
AVENGERS v3 #79
The same day as A3 78. Tensions run high as the Avengers deal with the death of Kelsey Leigh - Cap and Hawkeye argue about
the latter's inadvertent exposure of Leigh's corpse to her kids, Cap and She-Hulk try to console the kids, and Jan and Hank have
an argument about Hank's past physical abuse of her. Angry about "Thunderball"'s brutality, Hawkeye pays a visit to the jailed
Wrecking Crew, only to be savagely beaten by them. Green grass and trees in England.
AVENGERS v3 #80
The same day as A3 79. Poised between life and death, Kelsey meets Brian Braddock and Meggan and chooses the sword of
might over the amulet of right, turning her into the new Captain Britain. As the Wrecking Crew flees the Avengers, she
intercepts and skewers "Thunderball," who seeks to draw strength from a mysterious master. The three of them and Wanda
disappear. Green grass and trees in England.
AVENGERS v3 #81
The same day as A3 80. This story must occur before ASMU2 7-FB (4:2), probably before S-H3 5, and I have Brian Braddock
here before X 444. The new Captain Britain and Wanda, joined by Cap, defeat Morgan Le Fey and her black knight, the ersatz
"Thunderball," and free Braddock and Meggan from captivity. The Avengers return to New York with new member Captain
Britain and her family, who take residence at Avengers Embassy and cannot be told that Kelsey is the new hero in their midst.
Wasp and Hawkeye are sent to the infirmary. Green grass and trees in England.
Tuesday, August 12
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN v2 #3 - FB (15:2)
One day. This flashback must occur after ASMU2 3/2. The Owl, "fresh out of jail" (perhaps after having been put there after his
defeat in DD2 45), is "re-establishing himself" and "doesn't have a decent gang together yet." He sends Electro and Vulture out
to collect an debt for the Kingpin.
SPELLBINDERS #5 - FB
One day during the "August" before SPELLBINDERS 4 (9:6). After breaking up with Chad, Sally's powers are turned against
her and she freezes to death.
WONDER MAN v3 #1 - FB
One day. Simon considers Captain America, not himself, as "a super hero." Simon has lunch with his former agent Neal, who asks him how the Scarlet Witch is. Simon tells Neal about how Wanda went nuts and people were killed, but this can't be a reference to the events of Disassembled - rather, it must be a reference to a previous event with details manipulated by Neal. Simon tries to convince Neal that it's possible to turn folks from evil to good. After lunch, they are fiercely attacked by Ladykiller. She and Simon battle and Simon wins. Neal bets Simon that he can't reform Ladykiller and proposes to make a documentary about his effort to do so. Ladykiller awakens to discover she's been collared with a device that causes her pain when she's hostile. Simon proposes that she cooperate and introduces her to Hank McCoy and Carol Danvers.
WONDER MAN v3 #2 - FB (4-7)
The same night as WM3 1-FB. Simon shows Ladykiller her quarters and tells her he's going to rehabilitate her. Inhibited by a
restraining collar that prevents her from trying to hurt others, Ladykiller tries to escape, but winds up in Beast's presence.
Wednesday, August 13
One day, "just a few weeks" before M/KSM 6 (4-22). Tigra and Wonder Man fight Boomerang, according to Sandman.
WONDER MAN v3 #2 - FB (8-22)
The day after WM3 2-FB (4-7). Ladykiller tells Simon about being sold into sexual slavery at age twelve. Simon talks to Carol
Danvers about his charge. That night, Ladykiller attempts to escape, only to end up again in Beast's presence. In the billiard
room, she tells Simon about her encounter with the Mandarin. Then, Ladykiller successfully escapes, but returns. Beast sees
hope for her.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #12 (1-12)
It is "Wednesday," so it must be "two days" after SPECSM2 11 (10-23); Curt may have been unconscious for much of that time,
while Peter tended to him. At "7:18 PM," Peter takes Curt to a "safe place" in the sewers to chill while Peter does some
investigating. At "10:33 PM," a security guard delivers to the Bugle a surveillance camera videotape showing Spidey and the
Lizard's transformation into a man.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #19
One day. Because Daredevil cameos here, this story must occur after DD2 60 (1-21). Marlo decides to leave Moondragon (who
must appear here after THANOS 3) to return to Rick. Genis broadcasts a recording by Rick to all of earth from Titan. Phyla
argues for assuming the name Captain Marvel. A future version of Marlo shows up on Titan and fights Genis before dying.
CAPTAIN MARVEL v6 #20
The same day as CM6 19. Genis travels to the future to prevent the events leading to Marlo's death. Meanwhile, Phyla drops in
on Marlo and Moondragon.

driven back by Phyla.

WOLVERINE v3 #14 (1-11)
One day, probably a couple of days after W3 13 (17-22). Sabretooth reports back to the shady company that Wolverine is on the
Native's trail. Meanwhile, in British Columbia, Logan tracks down the Native's burrow and discovers cave painting-style art that
indicates that she escaped the Weapon X project at the same time he did. We see leafless trees and green grass and bushes in
B.C. Full moon.
Thursday, August 14
WOLVERINE v3 #14 (12-22)
The morning after W3 14 (1-11). Logan and the Native encounter one another and, after a savage fight, they kiss. We see
leafless trees and green grass and bushes in B.C.
AVENGERS v3 #82
One day, "days" after A3 78. Hawkeye (his leg and hand in casts) and the Wasp are still recovering from injuries sustained in A3
79-81 and Hank Pym reverts to his Giant-Man identity. There is no reference to Tony being Secretary of State. The new Captain
Britain gives Captain America a piece of her mind at a memorial service for Kelsey Leigh, leading Cap, Hank, and Iron Man to
suspect that Britain is Kelsey. Clint and Jan share a kiss. Meanwhile in the Middle East, in an effort to reform the Invaders,
Union Jack, Spitfire, and John Walker (now resuming a Captain America identity) retrieve Blazing Skull from captivity. Green
grass and trees in New York.
AVENGERS v3 #83
The same day as A3 82. The new Invaders ally themselves with Namor against the nation of Mazikhandar. Hank Pym discovers
Jan and Clint sharing a romantic moment. If this is the only time that Jan and Clint have sex, then it's roughly anywhere from a
week or so to about three weeks before A 503-FB (1-3). Green grass and trees in New York.
AVENGERS v3 #84
The same day as A3 83. It is "not long" after A3 70 (16-20). The Avengers fight the Invaders in Mazikhandar and Walker learns
he was set up by Dell Rusk a while back. The Mazikhandarian despot is overthrown and his successor assassinates him before
the heroes' eyes. Hawkeye no longer has his casts (that was a quick healing). Green grass and shrubs in Manhattan.
NEW INVADERS #0
The same day as A3 84. It is "months" before INV3 6 and long enough before INV3 1 for attacks on Mazikhandar to occur "at
regular intervals." The Invaders and Avengers deal with the situation as the Thin Man hints at an unknown agenda behind
everything. Namor makes Mazikhandar an Atlantean protectorate and installs Sulumor as advisor.
WONDER MAN v3 #3 - FB
Perhaps the day after W3 2-FB (8-22). Huan calls Carol "Ms. Marvel," but this story must occur during the time Carol was Warbird; either this was an accident or an intentional misnomer, as the name appears in quotes. Simon has a training session with Ladykiller, who shows him and Carol that she has an impulse for unnecessary killing. Lord Thunder and two associates fly on a plane, aiming to get Ladykiller. Ladykiller tells Carol she's tired of Simon's moralizing "day after day." Carol gets Ladykiller to talk about her parents, as Simon and Hank listen in. They are relieved to discover that Ladykiller didn't kill her parents but feels responsible for their deaths. This encourages Simon, who reports to Neal Saroyan that things with Ladykiller are progressing. Neal is visited by Lord Thunder and his associates. A day of rain and clear weather in L.A., where we see green grass and trees.
WONDER MAN v3 #4 - FB
The same night as WM3 3-FB. It is a "week" before WM3 5-FB. Simon releases Ladykiller from her control collar. Saroyan, the head of the Nobility, discusses the Ladykiller situation with Lord Thunder and his associates, all members of the Nobility. Beast and Carol express their concern to Simon about Ladykiller's release. Ladykiller plays hero by busting up a gang and a police marksman tries to take a shot at her. Simon arrives and takes Ladykiller from the scene. Lord Thunder shows up and kills the marksman. Ladykiller tells Simon she played hero for him, and Simon asks her to be his date at a "gathering at Stark Towers that celebrates the anniversary of Captain America's joining" the Avengers "next week;" this reference does not correlate with the same calendar date as A 4. Carol and Hank believe the date idea is a bad one. The Nobility regroup and Saroyan reveals his plan to use Ladykiller to destroy the Avengers. Green grass and trees. Full moon.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #12 (13-21)
The day after PPTSS2 12 (1-12). M.J. is back from her photo shoot. That rainy evening, Spidey checks in on Curt in the sewer
hideout and tells him they made the paper. Curt turns into the Lizard and attacks Spidey. We see green trees and light, long-
sleeve clothing in New York.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #13 (1-16)
The same night as PPTSS2 12 (13-21). Spidey battles the Lizard and both realize that a desperate Curt was in control of the
Lizard the whole time. After an unsuccessful abduction of his "nine-year-old" son, the Lizard escapes.
Friday, August 15
WOLVERINE v3 #15
The morning after W3 14 (12-22). Sabretooth tracks Wolverine and the Native down, and although he gets the drop on them, the
Native defeats him again and drives him off. She then leads Logan to her "home," a cabin in the woods, that he vaguely
remembers. We see evergreens and snow-capped bushes in B.C.
DAREDEVIL v2 #55 (17:2-22)
One day, probably months after DD2 55 (15-17), long enough for Maya to become a noted figure in the New York arts world.
Since Daredevil is in costume and does not have a goatee here, this segment must occur after DD2 60 (1-21). Maya (wearing a
fur coat) and Daredevil meet on a rooftop. We see blowing leaves.
WOLVERINE v3 #16
The same day as W3 15. Logan tries to get answers about their shared past from the Native, but they are interrupted by three
helicopters full of strike troops from the shady company. Logan destroys two of the 'copters and their men, but the third captures
the Native, and Logan is hit with a high-voltage taser. Hours later, he regains consciousness to find Sabretooth standing over
him. Green grass in B.C. Full moon.
WOLVERINE v3 #17 (1-6)
The same night as W3 16. Native arrives at the Workshop, Dr. Vapor quotes "a day at least" for decontamination and "the better
part of a week" for a successful operation, but is told to rush things. Logan awakens and examines the dead company men, and
Sabretooth explains that they both want vengeance on the company. Full moon.
Saturday, August 16
WOLVERINE v3 #17 (7-12)
The day after W3 17 (1-6). Logan reaches Sabretooth's humvee and disables the bomb the company had left underneath it. They
begin to drive. "97 minutes later," Dr. Vapor cuts at Native's neck with a scalpel. Later, Dr. Vapor inserts a radioactive pellet
into the Native's side. After coming out of surgery, Vapor claims that they'll be ready to operate "by morning." Green grass and
trees in British Columbia.
RUNAWAYS v2 #14 - FB (17-18)
One day, after RUN 17 (17-23), "a few months" after RUN2 14-FB (11-16), and "months" before RUN2 14-FB (19-22).
Sometime after Alex's disappearance, his gamer friends have a reunion where Hunter says he's hacked into Alex's old account
and seen a (biased) presentation of the Pride, as well as instructions to bring him back.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS SUPER SUMMER SPECTACULAR #1
One day. As the FF (in street clothes) and Herbie watch his last baseball game of the season, Franklin tries to get an edge by
using Impacto Kinetic Amplification Gel on his bat. He eventually hits a home run, but in the bottom of the ninth he drops a pop
fly when his glove explodes. Peewee football starts in "a few weeks."
Sunday, August 17
WOLVERINE v3 #17 (13-21)
The early morning after W3 17 (7-12). Sabretooth shows Logan where the Workshop is located, but when they arrive, Logan
runs him over with their Humvee and proceeds to storm the Workshop alone. Dr. Vapor successfully harvests the Native's
ovaries. Green grass and trees in Montana. Full moon.

The same early morning as W3 17 (7-12). Wolverine kills a bunch of guards at the Workshop and reaches the Native. He
removes the radiation pellet and kills Dr. Vapor, and the two escape. Sabretooth kills Murray and Willoughby, and decides to
go after the Native and kill her too. Green grass and trees in Montana. Full moon.
IRON FIST v4 #2
One day, "three months" after IF 2-FB. In the Himalayas, a Shadow Thief reports back to his master, Chi, with Iron Fist's
abandoned mask. Danny is at his new home in Colorado. Mary Blue Cloud arrives and asks for Iron Fist's help. Danny tells
that he's retired and that she should go away. He reluctantly listens to her story, but isn't interested. However, the weather's
terrible, so he agrees to let her stay the night. During the night, the house is attacked by Shadow Thieves. Iron Fist fights them.
Green trees in Colorado.
IRON FIST v4 #3 (1-11:2)
The same night as IF 2. Iron Fist defeats the Shadow Thieves and leaves with Mary in his car. Green trees in Colorado.

The day after IF 3 (1-11). Another victim of the Shadow Thieves is delivered to the office of coroner Karen Hildebrande in
Sioux Falls, SD. In Colorado, Danny takes Mary to the bus station and puts her on a bus back home. Then he phones his NYPD

is full of Shadow Thieves, and he breaks off to rescue her. After defeating the Shadow Thieves again, Danny reluctantly agrees
to drive Mary back home himself. Green grass and trees in Colorado.

Vladimir Pradov, a former Soviet colonel responsible for 2000 civilian deaths in Afghanistan. That night, Clint encounters Black
Widow, who claims to have killed Krylenko.
HAWKEYE v3 #8 (4-5)
The same night as HAWK3 7. It is "years" after HAWK3 8-FB. The Widow escapes from Clint.
Tuesday, August 19
IRON FIST v4 #4 (4:4-21:3)
The day after IF 3 (11-22). Early in the morning "somewhere in South Dakota," Danny watches over Mary as she sleeps at the
roadside. That day, Danny and Mary drive on and arrive at the Blue Cloud home, where Mary's parents happily greet Iron Fist.
The Shadow Thieves carry out another random killing at a motel. After dinner, Danny chats with Mary's mother, who talks
about Mary's powers. Yet another corpse is delivered to Karen Hildebrande. A Shadow Thief attacks the Blue Cloud home and
Iron Fist defeats it. Green grass and trees in South Dakota. Full moon.
HAWKEYE v3 #8 (6-8:3)
The day after HAWK3 8 (4-5). At Avengers "Mansion" (should be "Embassy"), Clint talks to Gyrich about the Krylenko killing,

begins in the early morning - "two days, three hours, forty-one minutes" before W3 19 - and ends at night - "one day, five
hours, seventeen minutes ago" before W3 19. Green grass and trees in B.C.
SHE-HULK v3 #5
One day. Nova is probably here after A/TB 3, the Wrecking Crew after A3 81, the Rhino after M/KSM 6-FB (11), and Night
Thrasher before NW3 3-FB (15:2). On a day that GLH&H offices are open, the New Warriors defeat Southpaw, who is sent to
the Big House, where a bunch of villains are kept shrunken in size. Southpaw turns out to be Holden Holliway's granddaughter
and when he and She-Hulk go to see her, the miniaturized, incarcerated villains break free and hitch a ride on Shulkie. Green
trees in New York.
SHE-HULK v3 #6 (1-20)
The same day as S-H3 5. It is a "few months" after S-H3 2 (1-13). Sandman may appear here before ID 1 (3-8), Electro (in
classic costume) before M/KSM 2, Rhino before ASMU2 6 (1-7), and the Wrecking Crew before TB2 2 (1-9). Holloway and
Jennifer return to the GLH&H offices, where Hank Pym enlarges the shrunken Southpaw and the escaped villains enlarge as
well. She-Hulk and Yellowjacket, assisted by Awesome Android and Southpaw, defeat the villains. Andy rejects the
programming of the Mad Thinker, whose android body is decapitated.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #14 (1-9)
One day. The dislocation of Spidey's shoulder in PPTSS2 6 (8-22) is noted as having occurred "recently." CP victim Joey Beal
watches New York from the rooftop of his building. The weather is warm enough for him to wear a short-sleeved shirt.
Wednesday, August 20
IRON FIST v4 #4 (21:4-21:6)
The morning after IF 4 (4-21). Danny leaves with Mary, having reluctantly accepted that he needs to stick with her in order to
fulfil her visions. Mary's parents watch them leave. Green grass and trees in South Dakota.
SHE-HULK v3 #6 (21-22)
The day after S-H3 6 (1-20). Damage Control shows up to repair the damage to the GLH&H offices. Awesome Android takes
the day off. There is a reference to a "Yankees" game, so this story must occur before late October. Pug says it "must be
HAWKEYE v3 #8 (8:4-19)
The day after HAWK3 8 (6-8). It is "days" before HAWK3 8 (20-22). Hawkeye gets a new bow and arrows in Moscow (from a
contact of Marc Spector's) and heads by train to Siberia, where we see bare trees and snow. He meets up with the Widow and
they both prevent the theft of sarin-filled missiles from an old weapon silo. Hawkeye's bow arm is injured in the process.

The day after PPTSS2 14 (1-9). Spidey saves Joey Beal from an attack by Morbius.
SON OF A GENIUS: EVERYBODY LOVES FRANKLIN #1/4
One day. This story may occur days before the birthday depicted in FOUR 1 (1-6). Franklin sneaks into his mom's closet, where
he finds Herbie guarding some presents. Herbie says, "These presents are not to be touched until your birthday, this weekend."
Franklin, though, has an invso-ray gun to get a peek inside. Unfortunately, he has the gun pointed backwards and makes himself
(and the gun) invisible. In a panic he fires a few mores times at random. He trips over an invisible stool and loses the gun.
Herbie flies to the kitchen (past Sue) to grab a bag of powdered sugar, with which he covers the room so the two can see the gun.
They re-inviso-ray everything and clean up the powered sugar. Sue pokes her head in as Franklin tries to suggest that he wasn't
looking for his presents. Sue responds "What presents?" as she makes them invisible, confusing poor Franklin.
Thursday, August 21
WOLVERINE v3 #19 - FB (1-2)
One early morning, two days after W3 19-FB (5-19). Nightcrawler (in street clothes) waits for Logan at Jo's bar in Manhattan.
WOLVERINE v3 #19
The same rainy early morning (before "dawn") as ("twenty-six minutes" after) W3 19-FB (1-2). Logan arrives at Jo's bar to have
Kurt give the Native last rites.
WEAPON X v2 #19 - FB
One morning. Marrow's Gene Nation conducts their "sixth attack on a Weapon X-related facility in as many months." This
means that this flashback occurs at least six months, inclusive, after WX2 13 (12-21).
IRON FIST v4 #5 (1:1-1:2)
One day. A Shadow Thief in South Sioux Falls begins to glow with energy and then turns into a bolt of energy which flies
DAREDEVIL v2 #65 - FB (34)
One day. Daredevil appears with the Hulk in a pin-up that is seen at FBI headquarters in DD2 65.

One day. Dream Beasts appear in Mississippi and Campbell St. Ange investigates their origin by traveling to the Far Banks,
where he discovers a malevolent force, Rogue's mother.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #5/2 (11)
One day, "a few weeks" after ASMU2 5/2 (1-10). Peter Parker checks up on the hostage that he rescued. We see falling autumn
WONDER MAN v3 #5 - FB
One day, a "week" after WM3 4-FB. Avengers Mansion is intact, so this story must occur before A 500 (1-8). Thor is shown here in his classic costume, so this story must occur before T2 80 (7-22). Genis is shown here in his classic Captain Marvel garb, so this story must occur after CM6 24. Hawkeye is not seen here; perhaps he is out of the country as shown in HAWK3. The Avengers throw a bash at Avengers Mansion "celebrating the anniversary of Captain America joining the team;" this does not line up calendar-wise with the anniversary of A 4. The Beast is seen in his Reload "diaper" costume here; apparently Hank is switching between this and his Morrison leathers at this point, as he appears in the latter in "Disassembled." Huan becomes Ladyfair and Carol questions Simon's relationship with her. The Nobility count on Huan's true nature resurfacing in a planned attack on the Avengers at their party that night. Wonder Man introduces Ladyfair to the party's attendees, which include She-Hulk, Justice, Thor, Dr. strange, the FF, Wolverine, Shadowcat, Cyclops, Spider-Man, Cage, Wasp, Iron Man, Daredevil, Warbird, Beast, Black Panther, Songbird, Moondragon, Quicksilver, Valkyrie, Yellowjacket, Falcon, and Spider-Woman (apparently Jessica Drew decked out in her costume, but without her powers fully restored). Through a tiny receiver in her jaw, Huan gets a command from Neal to poison the punch, which she does. But when Cap goes to drink it, Huan knocks it away. Fearing what she might do under Neal's mind control, Huan spills the beans about Neal and mortally stabs herself. Simon flies across the country and bursts into Neal's office, only to find him killed by his associates. Green tree in New York.
Friday, August 22
IRON FIST v4 #5 (1:3-22)
The day after IF 5 (1). Other Shadow Thieves turn into energy bolts in Paris, Rio, London and New York. All of the energy flies
to the Himalayas and energizes Chi. Following a lead from Scarfe, Danny and Mary go to visit Karen. Karen agrees to talk to
them and reveals that she herself was once a Shadow Thief. Karen has traced one of the Shadow Thieves to a warehouse address,
and she invites Iron Fist to join her in visiting it. In the Himalayas, Chi talks with the Whispers on the Wind. Iron Fist drops
Karen off in a motel, and then heads to the warehouse. Meanwhile, Karen goes to the motel and abducts Mary, with
encouragement from the Whispers on the Wind. Iron Fist soon realizes that he has been tricked, but by the time he gets back to
the motel, Karen and Mary are gone. Iron Fist improvises a costume for himself and puts on a makeshift mask.
IRON FIST v4 #6 (1)
The same day as IF 5 (1-22). It is "eight days" before IF 6 (2-22). Mary and Karen teleport to the Himalayas.
SHE-HULK v3 #8 - FB (4:1-4:4)
One day. The Champion has taken over the planet Skardon and challenges the cosmos to dethrone him through combat in a
cosmic boxing arena. Adam Warlock answers the call and beats Champion, but because Warlock violated the rules, the Skard
nurse Champion back to health.
WEAPON X v2 #19
The day after WX2 19-FB. Maverick infiltrates an old safehouse of Cable's, only to discover that it's been taken over by
Marrow and her Gene Nation, the terrorist successors to Nathan's underground movement. Marrow convinces Maverick to join
Gene Nation. Unbeknownst to them, Agent Zero is in the facility. At Weapon X headquarters, Chamber discovers a room of
WEAPON X v2 #20
The same day as WX2 19. Chamber contacts Logan, who is at the Hellfire Club, and reports on the telepaths; he plans to stow
away on a transport about to leave for Neverland. Agent Zero forces Marrow to divulge Grand Central Station as the location of
Gene Nation's current job, and Zero hurries there to face Maverick, who he believes to be the terrorist. In reality, the terrorist is
a living bomb who explodes herself. In the rubble, Weapon Zero unmasks Maverick. Logan does not appear in any costume
during this story arc.
WEAPON X v2 #21
The same day as WX2 20. Maverick turns out to be Bolt, and Weapon Zero turns our to be Maverick. Bolt dies and Agent Zero
hunts down Gene Nation, slaying hordes of operatives, but sparing Marrow. Zero reports back to Weapon X headquarters, which
he finds deserted. Logan tracks Chamber to Neverland, which he finds deserted. Full moon.
WEAPON X v2 #23
The same night as WX2 21. The message "Roanoke" is discovered by Logan at Neverland, Agent Zero at Weapon X
headquarters, and Fantomex at the empty grave of John Sublime. Full moon.
WEAPON X v2 #24 (1-16)
The same night as WX2 23. Fantomex goes to Weapon X headquarters, where he battles Agent Zero until they decide to work
together. Logan takes a train to Roanoke.
Saturday, August 23
WEAPON X v2 #24 (17-22)
The morning after WX2 24 (1-16). Fantomex and Agent Zero arrive at Roanoke, where they encounter Logan.
WEAPON X v2 #25 (1-21)
The same day as WX2 24 (17-22). It is a "year" before WX:DOFN 1 (13-24). Logan recounts his unsuppressed memories of
killing innocents as a Weapon X operative. John Sublime emerges alive and well. He tells Logan, Fantomex, and Agent Zero of
a war between the Weapon X and Weapon Plus programs and sends the U-Men to kill them. The heroes escape. Green grass
and trees in Roanoke.
HAWKEYE v3 #8 (20-22)
One day, "days" after HAWK3 8 (8-19). Clint has his arm in a sling from his injury, and I've placed this segment long enough
before A 503-FB (1-3) for the arm to heal. He talks to Natasha about Krylenko's family. Then he visits Eden, a girlfriend from
his circus days who is being released from prison after what must be more than a "ten-hitch."
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6 (1-7)
One day, "three days" before ASMU 6 (9-11). Spidey gets his clock cleaned by the Rhino, who I presume appears here after S-
H3 6 (1-20). Spidey ends up with a fractured forearm in a sling, plus other injuries.
FOUR #1 (1-6)
A "Saturday," a "few months" before FOUR 12. It is Franklin's "8th" birthday, so it must be the same day of the year as FF @6,
which was established in OMITFF 5 as occurring in late August. Naturally, Franklin must be quite a bit older than eight, but the
age clue does place this story after FF3 60 (3-9), in which he is noted as being "seven." This may be the birthday that was noted
as approaching in FF 505, and given that the team is together and Reed's face is fine in this story, it may be after FF 511; and
given the references in FF 512-513 to the story arc that ended in FF 511, and given the late August setting here and the water
park opening in FF 512, this story likely occurs after FF 513. This may also be the birthday referenced as approaching in
SG:ELF 1/4; if so, then this segment occurs during the "weekend." Cap and She-Hulk appear at Franklin's party. The FF are
told that the federal government's funding has dried up, and that the "money manager" that Reed hired, Terry Giocometti,
embezzled their funds, left them broke, and fled the country. (The same manager also stole funds from Stark Industries and
Osborn Corporation, but neither of those losses was as devastating as the FF's). The FF now have to find jobs or declare
bankruptcy; nothing is mentioned about Reed's patent income. Johnny has a girlfriend named Kourtney, and Valeria must be
nearly eighteen months old here.
THOR v2 #80 (7-22)
One day, "one month" ("thirty days") after T2 80 (5-6). This segment must occur after XS 25, XS 26-FB (5-6), and WM3 5-FB. Thor notes that he's killed Fin Fang Foom. Loki, Surtur, Ulik, Fenris, the Midgard Serpent, and Hymer the Giant, armed with weapons forged from Mjolnir's mold, attack Asgard. They kill Amora and slice off Sif's arm. Thor smashes his hammer as he vanquishes Loki's allies and is nearly killed by Loki before teleporting to New York to enlist the aid of the Avengers.
THOR v2 #81
The same day as T2 80 (7-22). As Thor, Cap, and Iron Man survey the death and destruction in Asgard, they are attacked by
Loki and his allies. After the heroes drive off their foes, they discover that Balder has been killed. Thor vows to avenge Balder's
death, but refuses the Avengers' help and sends Cap and Iron Man back to earth.
THOR v2 #82 (1-5)
The same day as T2 81. It is "two months" before T2 82 (6-9) and before T2 82-FB. The Warriors Three and the wounded Sif
are attacked by the ship Naglfar.
Sunday, August 24
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6 (8:1-8:5)
The day after ASMU2 6 (1-7). Peter Parker thinks about his battle with the Rhino, which is reported in a newspaper that states
that the (probably topical) weather forecast is "partly cloudy, chance of snow. High 25-30."
DAREDEVIL v2 #65 - FB (35)
One day. Daredevil fights a bunch of ninjas atop a building in a pin-up that is seen in FBI headquarters in DD2 65.
SHE-HULK v3 #8 - FB (4:5-4:6)
One day. Adam Warlock and company teleport around the universe and find cosmic strongmen to fight the Champion.
Champion defeats them all, including Drax.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #11
One day, "around" UX 444. Rachel is upset about Scott's being with Emma Frost so soon after Jean's demise and has a heart-to-
heart talk with Alex about her feelings. Green grass and trees at Westchester. Full moon.
GRAVITY #1 (1-20)
One day. Greg Willis arrives in New York City from Wisconsin via bus, thinking about the accident last summer that gave him
his gravity powers and his high school graduation. He's come to make a name for himself as a super-hero and to go to college at
New York University, where it is "the day before classes" start. After seeing some of the city, he meets with his advisor, James
Whitemore. Their meeting is interrupted by a fight between Rage and Black Death. Greg changes to Gravity and decks Rage,
not realizing he's the good guy. Black Death holds Gravity in a dark energy, but Rage comes to and Black Death escapes,
promising he'll see Gravity again. Greg returns to his dorm room and meets his roommate, Frog, who's been at NYU for
"orientation" for "a week." That evening, Gravity goes on patrol, and although he helps a few people, it doesn't go well. He also
comes across the Thing battling Man-Bull, and Ben tells Gravity to buzz off. Ready to give up for the night, Gravity rushes an
elderly woman to the hospital and falls asleep in the waiting room. Iron Man cameos. Full moon.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #1 (1-3)
One night, sometime after ASM 508. After determining that the "chosen one" is not in Los Angeles, the mage Miguel is attacked
by a gunman, who Miguel puts to sleep with a spell. Full moon.
Monday, August 25
GRAVITY #1 (21-22)
The day after GRAV 1 (1-20). At 7:30 AM, a nurse wakes Gravity and notes that the old woman would be dead if he hadn't
brought her to the hospital. Late for class, Gravity heads to NYU and meets classmate Lauren Singh, who races him to class. It
is the first day of classes of the academic year.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6 (8:6-9:3)
Perhaps the day after ASMU2 6 (8). Wearing an arm sling, Peter Parker teaches a school class and obsesses about the Rhino.
Peter's class seems to have students younger than high-school age; this may be a special summer class that Peter agreed to teach
for the school district.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #1 (1-11:3)
One day. Kitty arrives at the Institute with her luggage and her hair cut (an inaccurate artist interpretation?) - she remarks to
herself, "Nothing has changed. The place was destroyed, and now it looks like nothing happened. No time has passed." There
is no obvious construction happening at the Institute. Kitty immediately walks into an indoor school assembly at which (after an
introductory speech by Scott) Emma introduces the senior staff (all in civilian clothing) - "Since Professor Xavier is away on
sabbatical, Mr. Summers and myself will be acting heads of school. Doctor McCoy and Miss Pryde will round out the senior
staff along with Logan, who is...elsewhere" (perhaps not back from WX2 25?). Emma pulls a stunt at the assembly that she
labels "the first lesson" - presumably classes begin after this point.
FOUR #1 (7-22)
One day, probably two days after FOUR 1 (1-6), as it is a school day for Franklin (probably the very beginning of a new school
year) and the Pembroke Academy (where Alicia teaches art) is open. Valeria is old enough to sit up in a high chair. Sue gets a
job substitute teaching, Ben finds a job, and Johnny struggles to find an acting job. Reed tells Sue that the mayor is evicting the
FF from the Baxter Building. Green grass and trees and light clothing in New York.
SHE-HULK v3 #7 (1-18)
One day. This story must occur after S-H4 3/2. Beta Ray Bill probably appears here before T2 85. As She-Hulk and Southpaw
argue about Holloway sticking them together for the past "few days," the Living Tribunal's agents, the Magistrati, materialize at
GLK&H and offer Jennifer a place in their order. She accepts, and she and Southpaw are whisked across the cosmos. She-Hulk
finds herself presiding over the Star Chamber, a cosmic claims court. One such case involves the Watchers. Green trees in New York. Meanwhile, Champion defeats Beta Ray Bill and Gladiator in battle on Skardon.
SHE-HULK v4 #20 - FB (9:5)
The same day as S-H3 7 (1-18). She-Hulk presides over the case of a Watcher who witnesses the Recluses, a race that wishes to remain anonymous.
SHE-HULK v3 #7 (19:1-19:4)
The same day as S-H4 20-FB (9:5). Watchers Zoma, Uatu, and Qyre present their case.
SHE-HULK v4 #20 - FB (9:6)
The same day as S-H3 7 (19:1-19:4). She-Hulk considers the testimony.
SHE-HULK v3 #7 (19:5-20:4)
The same day as S-H4 20-FB (9:6). She-Hulk renders a decision that the Recluses find acceptable. Qyre loses his mouth so he can tell no one of the true nature of the Recluses.
SHE-HULK v4 #20 - FB (10:1-10:3)
The same day as S-H3 7 (19-20). She-Hulk dismisses the case. The Recluses are afraid that She-Hulk might someday reverse the decision and decide to have RT-Z9 watch her.
SHE-HULK v3 #7 (20:5-22)
The same day as S-H4 20-FB (10:1-10:3). Champion defeats Adam Warlock on Skardon. RT-Z9 tells She-Hulk her next assignment is on Skardon.
SHE-HULK v3 #8 (1-12)
The same day as S-H3 7 (20-22). It is supposed to be "almost three months" before S-H3 8 (13-14), "three months" before S-H3 8 (15-18), and "three solar months" before S-H3 8 (18-22), but it may actually be three weeks. Pip summons She-Hulk to Skardon, where she finds Gladiator, Drax, Beta Ray Bill, and Silver Surfer - here after SS4 14, and perhaps C&DP 10 - hospitalized with injuries inflicted by Champion. Warlock cocoons himself (something he shouldn't be able to do at this point). Champion defeats She-Hulk, but she files an appeal.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #1 (4-22)
The day after AAF2 1 (1-3). It is "the first day of school" at a high school in Brooklyn, probably 11 or 12 years after AAF2 1-
FB. Freshman Anya Corazon gets into a fight with a bully named Trent. That night, she goes to meet the bully in the park and
encounters Miguel battling the Sisterhood of the Wasp. Miguel realizes that Anya is the initiate, and seeks to protect her, but she
is stabbed by one of the thugs. Miguel dispatches the thugs with a spell. Green trees in New York.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #2 (1-3)
The same night as AAF2 1 (4-22). Miguel performs a spell, saving Anya's life, and officially making her "the initiate." As part
of the spell, Miguel takes Anya's locket and Anya falls unconscious. Green trees in New York.
Tuesday, August 26
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #1 (11:4-17, 18:3-18:5)
The morning after ASTONX3 1 (1-11). Logan shows up in Scott's and Emma's bedroom and a brawl ensues over Jean. The
fuss raised by Logan over the prospect of costumes places this segment before any of his appearances in his Reload costume (e.g.
X 157). Scott notes that "Avengers, Fantastic Four - they don't get chased through the streets with torches." (Apparently the Avengers haven't disbanded yet, since Scott refers to them in the present tense; the impression is that Disassembled hasn't happened yet.) Later, Logan and Kitty wait for Lockheed to arrive. Kitty notes that "Lockheed wanted to fly on his own. I thought he'd beat me here..." Logan says, "The dragon'll show. I did." Kitty responds, "Big entrance," and Logan replies "Sorry about that. Wasn't planning it, I just...sometimes I go off." This dialog implies that this segment occurs later the same day as ASTONX3 1 (14-17). Green grass and trees at Westchester.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #2 (4-22)
The day after AAF2 1 (1-3). Anya wakes up to find herself hatching from a cocoon above her bed with her wound healed and a
tattoo of a spider on her arm. At school, she discovers her locket missing and starts to remember the previous night's events.
Miguel shows up and watches her practice gymnastics after school. Then Anya goes to the park to look for her locket and
encounters Miguel, who tells her to stop by WebCorps tomorrow afternoon after school. He quickly disappears, leaving Anya
confused. We see green grass and trees and sporadic rain in New York.
Probably the day after FOUR 1 (7-22), given the newspaper headline. Sue, Ben, and Johnny search for an apartment before Sue
begins her first day teaching English at Pembrooke Academy. Kourtney ditches Johnny. Ben stops jewel thieves on his break.
Reed forgets to pick up Franklin from school. Green grass and trees in New York. The narration notes that the night brings "the
first cold rain of the season" and that "tomorrow, the leaves in Central Park will start to change colors," but given Franklin's
August birthday, this reference must be topical.
UNCANNY X-MEN #444 (1-7)
One "sunny summer afternoon". We see green grass and trees. Baseball game between "Storm's team" ("the visitors," with
Cannonball, Wolverine, Magma, Sage, Rogue, Gambit) and "the home team" (Beast, Cyclops, Husk, Kitty Pryde, Emma Frost,
and "Rachel Grey - the newly-minted Marvel Girl"), with Dani and Shan in the ersatz broadcast booth - everyone's in civilian
clothing. Kitty has long hair (wow, that haircut grew out fast!). Lockheed is present, Gambit is sighted, and students are present
in the stands. Scott: "Why are you on Storm's team, Wolverine? Isn't your place here, with the Institute?" Logan: "I make my
own place, bub. Just like I choose my own friends." Scott: "What's that supposed to mean?" Logan: "Stay focused, Scotty." (It
appears that Logan is irked at Scott, quite possibly still holding a grudge about Scott's relationship with Emma following Jean's
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #7 - FB (4:2)
One day. This flashback must occur after A3 81. The new Captain Britain stops the Rhino, as pictured on a web site presumably
the next day.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6 - FB
Probably the day after ASMU2 6 (8-9) and the same day as ASMU 7-FB (4:2). The Avengers (Cap and Iron Man) apprehend
the Rhino after a stand-off at Queens Mall; this presumably follows his defeat by Captain Britain.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6 (9:4-11)
The same night as ASMU2 6-FB. Probably the night of the day after ASMU2 6 (8-9), as it is "three days" after ASMU2 6 (1-7).
Peter thinks more about Rhino, then he sees the TV coverage of the Rhino's capture and goes out again as Spider-Man.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #7 - FB (4:3)
It must be the same night as ASMU 7-FB (4:2). Moon Knight is back in action, as pictured on a web site the next day. Full
Wednesday, August 27
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #7
Presumably the morning after ASMU 7-FB (4:2) and (4:3) and thus the day after ASMU2 6 (9-11). An office worker helps
Spidey defeat Mysterio. According to a calendar and web site, it is "August 1" (the month may be right) and the calendar
indicates that it's a Wednesday (but if it's not, it should be another weekday).
A windy day following "three months of oppressive heat" in New York. Sue oversees the FF's move out of the Baxter Building
(perhaps at the end of a month). Reed pays a visit to the unemployment office and is late picking up Franklin from school. Ben
is asked by his co-workers to slow down on the job. Johnny turns down a reality TV show. We see green grass and trees but
also many trees with autumn leaves; the narration notes "a change in the seasons."
X-MEN v2 #157 (1-22)
One morning. Early rumblings of the coming of Xorn II occur in China, where someone "references a local Chinese superstition
revolving around the month of August." Alex (in Reload costume) is having coffee (and presumably breakfast) and Annie
suggests to him, "Let's play hooky today and go to the park." Alex tells Annie, "Scott's setting up the new teams, and he put me
in charge of one of them...so we have to make sure everyone's cool with the switch-ups...start drills and practices..." With a taxi
waiting, Mrs. Guthrie leaves Jay at the Institute with his luggage - apparently Jay is being dropped off at the Institute and, if this
occurs after ASTONX3 (1-11), then Jay already has missed one assembly, the one in which the senior staff was introduced,
which explains why he doesn't know who Scott Summers is. (No mention of Melody here as having been enrolled previously, so
she may be attending for the first time now. Mrs. G. may already have bid her goodbye prior to this scene just before leaving.)
Throughout, Jay is called "Josh." Maybe Cannonball is showing Melody around and given the friction between Sam and Jay,
Scott suggested Alex as tour guide for Jay. This is not an official tour, organized for groups of students - like that shown in NX
1 - this is probably a special courtesy to a member of the Guthrie family; it still didn't excuse Jay from having to take the tour in
NX 1. Touring the Danger Room, Jay sees Juggernaut (back in his classic brown costume) for the first time and is introduced to
Iceman, who argues with Alex about Juggernaut. This prompts Alex to say, "Let's go talk to Scott about changing your
assignment to one of the other teams, shall we? Bobby: "What do you mean, you're going to talk to Scott about changing me to
another team? You don't have that kind of authority. You're not team leader." Alex: "As of today, yes I am. As one of the
'original students,' I'm surprised you don't check the school bulletin board more frequently." The tour passes by the gym, where
we see Rachel and Bishop working out in gym clothes. The tour goes through the greenhouse, where they see Storm - Jay: "She
was hot. Who was she?" Sammy: "That was Ororo - Storm. Awesome, isn't she?...But if you think she's hot, wait until you see
Emma Frost. Woof." The greenhouse has been finished "for weeks." The tour passes through the cafeteria, where Rogue and
Gambit (in costume) are getting "gumbo" (so it's not breakfast - probably lunch) - the two join along and ask to be "unassigned"
from Alex's team as they want time for themselves and not be running missions. In Scott's office, everyone has problems with
the team assignments - Nightcrawler (in Reload costume) says, "-Scott, my friend, you know this can't work --" (so it's
apparently before the Danger Room scene in UX 444 in which he thinks he should work with Ororo and Logan more often);
Archangel says, "Genosha?! I don't want to go to Genosha!"; Beast (in Morrison leather) says, "This is an untenable situation,
Scott --" (probably because Hank feels that Gambit should not be assigned to a team, given his remarks in examining Remy in
UX 444); Kitty (in long hair and pre-Reload leather) says, "Wait, I thought you didn't need me anymore?" This may be a
reference to an unseen conversation in which Kitty was told that she'd be on the Institute staff - the reason for her moving back
to Westchester in ASTONX3 1 (1-11) - but would not be needed on a combat team; Wolverine (in his Reload costume) says,
"Listen, bub, I appreciate the faith in me, but I can't be on all teams" (perhaps Scott made the decision to add Logan to the XSE
team after the baseball game in UX 444); Jubilee says, "Please, please, please let me be on Paige's team" (Paige has a team?);
Sage says, "Why am I even here?"; Northstar says, "Am I expected just to teach?!"; others present are Polaris, Husk, and
Lockheed. Scott replies, "...No adjustments will be made to the team assignments! Period!" Scott is wearing his Reload costume
(minus the cowl). Right from there, the tour proceeds to Cerebra, where Emma (in Morrison costume) tells them, "I have an
assignment that will take all your minds off this current nonsense....A five-hour flight on a X-plane should bring you all together
harmoniously, don't you think?" Green grass and trees at Westchester.
UNCANNY X-MEN #444 (8-11)
Perhaps the same day as X 157 (1-22). The Institute is mostly completed, but we do see scaffolding and construction equipment
there. Sage uses her cyber glasses to call up web database icons, incl. the Avengers, the FF, the Hellfire Club, Purity, White
House; no implications that she actually enters those databases. Beast, Sunspot, Vange Whedon, and assorted students are
poolside at Xavier's. Melody and Jay Guthrie mug for a TV camera (presumably a live broadcast by "MBS-TV," since the
reporter's name is on screen) and Sam (in XSE costume) shoos the media away - Sam: "You, Jay, should know better!" Jay:
"You're not the boss of me, not now, not ever!" (Jay should be here after he was dropped off at the Institute in X 157.) Beast (I
suppose fresh from his swim) examines Gambit (no bandage) - Gambit: "I check out perfect, n'est-ce pas?" Beast: "I'm sorry,
Gambit. But both Storm and I feel you need more time in rehab. Just to be sure your restored powers are as 'perfect' as you
claim." The implication is that the exam is entirely related to Remy's powers, not to blindness. Our theory: Storm requested
Beast to examine Gambit because Remy was determined to join his team on the China assignment given just prior to this in X
157. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
X-MEN v2 #157 (23-25)
The same day as X 157 (1-22) and perhaps as UX 444 (8-11). After that "five-hour flight," Havok, Polaris, Iceman, Juggernaut,
Wolverine, Rogue, and Gambit (who we determine has ignored Beast's advice) head to China where a tear in the magnetic field
leads them to Xorn II.
X-MEN v2 #158
The same day as X 157 (7-25). The China adventure continues - the X-Men battle and defeat eight Chinese immortals. In the
melee, Gambit is blinded and Xorn II's head cracks open, creating a black hole. Sammy tries to interest Jay in socializing at the
Institute - Sammy: "So, uh, Josh...I don't know, you wanna play catch or something?" Jay: "Call me 'Jay,' Sammy. My life as
'Josh' is over. 'Jay' is what the guys in my band call me." (Apparently brother Sam also calls him that, but the name probably
originated with the band.) Jay talks to Sammy about his dead girlfriend. Jay and Sammy catch fellow students talking to a tree
(Black Tom). Green grass and trees at Westchester.
X-MEN v2 #159
The same day as X 158. Havok manages to contain Xorn and sends most of his team, except the bickering Cain and Bobby, to
find Xorn's helmet. Both groups encounter the Collective Man and the Chinese army. Gambit's eyes are bandaged. Jay
familiarizes himself with Xavier's. Sammy reports to Emma that he thinks Black Tom is on the grounds. Green grass and trees
X-MEN v2 #160
The same day as X 159. Thanks in large part to Iceman and Polaris, the two groups of X-Men defeat the Collective Man and the
Chinese army. They find the containment helmet and get it on Xorn. That night, Alex and Annie have a talk (picking up from X
157) and Sammy shows Cain where he thought he saw Black Tom - it's now dinner time: they're serving lasagna in the cafeteria.
Green grass and trees at Westchester. Full moon.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #3
The day after AAF2 2 (4-22). Anya arrives at WebCorps and Miguel introduces her to his boss, Mr. Sanderson, who pulls
Miguel aside to dispute young Anya's status as "the One." After grilling Sanderson, Anya suspects something fishy about WebCorps.
On the way out, WebCorps computer guy Ted gives Anya a cell phone, saying they'll call her when they need her. That night,
Anya meets her friend Lynn at a nightclub, where Anya flirts with gymnastics captain Paul Townsend. A WebCorps helicopter
picks her up to take her on a rescue mission for Miguel, who is in danger at a Wasps' Nest. Miguel tries to escape a gang of
thugs by climbing the copter ladder, but the Wasps fly up after him.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #4 (1-8)
The same night as AAF2 3. Anya, Miguel, Ted, and Nina try and fly away in the helicopter but it gets shot down by the Wasps.
The Wasps nearly kill Anya, but Miguel saves her and casts a sleep spell on her, putting her to sleep.
Thursday, August 28
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #4 (9-22)
The day after AAF2 4 (1-8). Anya wakes up in bed and goes to school. After school, she attends field hockey practice and her
powers start to manifest. A teammate suggests they practice "later this week." Anya gets a call from Miguel to come to
WebCorps, where she learns that she's the new hunter who is to work with Miguel to fight the Wasps. WebCorps board
members agree to put Anya through "the Trials." Miguel tells Anya she needs to prepare to go on a training trip over the weekend.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #5 (1)
Probably the same day as AAF2 4 (7-22). Anya gets her dad's permission to attend an "internship training" for the weekend.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #1
One day. This story must occur after NX 34-FB. The Institute appears fully constructed. Cyclops and Emma (in their new costumes, so it's likely after ASTONX3 6) introduce themselves to a group of "new students," which include Jay (who wears an X shirt), and they give the kids a tour (this would be Jay's second tour, following X 157; although Scott was the one who arranged for Jay's first tour, apparently the overly organized, "anal retentive" Cyclops figured another tour was necessary - he even slated Noriko Ashida for this tour, even though she's been around for months!) - the tour includes the Danger Room (don't they all?). Luna: "Don't you have orientation for the new semester?" Noriko: "I don't know why I even need to be there! I've been at the school for weeks now...and I watched it being rebuilt." Cyclops: "There will be a school-wide assembly on Monday." Sofia has been in the States for "what? Only a year?" - since NM2 1 (5-7). David Alleyne and Noriko Ashida are "17," Sofia Mantega and Josh Foley are "16," and Laurie Collins is "15," making this story occur between one and three years after NM2 11-FB (8), in which Laurie is 13. The kids sneak into the Danger Room and run into trouble. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #2 (1-9)
The same day as NX 1. Surge and Dust get off on the wrong foot as roommates. Cyclops (in his Reload costume) confronts
Surge about the Danger Room escapade and tells her she must have her gauntlets looked at "tomorrow." Afraid that the students
are being trained to be X-Men, David intends to leave Xavier's.
FOUR #4 - FB (6:3-6:6)
One day. The FF pays their debt to the City of New York.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #6/2 (9-11)
One night, probably after ASMU2 6 (9-11). After spending the day in Brooklyn breaking up a bank heist and rescuing folks
from a fire, Spidey busts a caper by the Mercenary and his henchmen. Spidey webs up Augie.
Friday, August 29
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #2 (10-17)
The morning after NX 2 (1-9). Jay Guthrie meets Dani's and Emma's students. Dani reassures her students about new school
policies to be announced at "Monday's assembly." Julian: "Hey, you the new guy? Josh Guthrie?" Jay: "It's Jay. I'm not Josh
anymore. My old life is over." Jay thinks of Icarus as his code name and meets the soon-to-be New Mutants and Hellions.
Iceman introduces himself to the soon-to-be New Mutants and Hellions. Dani gives her students training costumes. Green grass
and trees at Westchester.
The day after FOUR 4-FB (6). It is a school day. "Valeria started teething today," and she drinks from a bottle and sleeps in a
crib; she should be at least several months old by now (my calculations put her at over a year old). Johnny is getting in shape to
become a fireman. Hammerhead tries to enlist Reed's help in going after Giocometti. On his way to his temp job, Reed saves
the life of a would-be suicide jumper. The references to Reed's grandfather serving in World War II must be topical, a nod to a
2004 reference point that doesn't necessarily exist in the MU; from the original reference point of FF 1 occurring in 1961, it
could be Reed's older brother who served in WWII, but that would change Reed's recollections drastically. Autumn leaves on
the trees in Manhattan.
GRAVITY #2 (1-10:3)
One day. Greg and Lauren's breakfast is interrupted by Rhino robbing an armored car. After a rough start, Gravity throws Rhino
out of sight. The Black Knight rides his atomic steed in the background. That evening, Greg watches the news, hoping for a
story on Gravity. He's disappointed but does catch a story about Spider-Man and "what appears to be a talking duck"
DAREDEVIL v2 #61 (1-2)
One day. Milla seeks the annulment of her marriage to Matt.
AVENGERS #503 - FB (1-3)
One day. Hawkeye is shown here without his arm in a sling, and he is working on his archery, perhaps to limber up the bow arm
that was injured in HAWK3 8 (8-19), so this flashback probably occurs after HAWK3 8 (20-22), in which the arm was still in a
sling. Jan tells Wanda that she had a pregnancy scare (with Clint as the presumed father) because her period came late, so this
flashback should occur anywhere from a week or so to about three weeks after the tryst in A3 83. Jan inadvertently mentions
Wanda's children. We see warm, bathing weather and green grass and trees in Manhattan.
AVENGERS #503 - FB (6)
Probably the same night as A 503-FB (1-3). This flashback occurs a "long time" before A 503 and must occur before CA&F 1-
FB (11-12). Wanda visits Agatha Harkness to inquire about her children (and ends up slaying the old woman).
Saturday, August 30
GRAVITY #2 (10:4-16)
The day after GRAV 2 (1-10). From 3:00 to 5:00 AM Greg waits for the day's paper at a newsstand. He's rewarded by a small
story which reveals Rhino was later apprehended by SHIELD. The Greenwich Guardian appears on a rooftop and Gravity
investigates. They talk and agree to meet at midnight. The Guardian bounds off into what appears to be the beginnings of
sunrise. Greg returns to his dorm room, briefly talks to Frog, and then has class with Lauren. Full moon.
IRON FIST v4 #6 (2-22)
One day, "eight days" after IF 6 (1). In Central Park, Iron Fist defeats some Shadow Thieves. Afterwards, he compares notes
with Scarfe again. Eventually the Whispers on the Wind appear and teleport him to the Himalayas to confront Chi. Outside
Chi's mountain headquarters, Iron Fist is attacked by Karen, who he defeats. He fights past the Shadow Thieves, defeats Chi and
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #5 (2-20)
A day during the weekend after AAF2 5 (1). A WebCorps helicopter takes Anya to a desert in the Yucatan, where she is
supposed to survive on her own. Anya is attacked by a pack of wolves, her powers emerge, and she defeats the wolves. Miguel
and the helicopter return and pick her up. Anya is now the Brotherhood's new hunter and she chooses the name "Araña" as a
UNCANNY X-MEN #444 (12-23)
One day. Sage uses her cyber glasses to call up a camera shot of the Danger Room, where we see Rogue (in a generic X-training
costume) escorting students for a session that was booked for them, but Storm, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine (all in standard X-
training costumes) are running through a session themselves; if students are signed up for the Danger Room, the implication is
that the school year has begun. (There is no evidence that this scene has to occur at the same time as the previous scenes in
Sage's cyber glasses. The two different scenes with the Beast - poolside and in the med lab - suggest that Sage may be checking
in at different times.) Nightcrawler to Storm and Logan: "Perhaps we should work together more often, ja?" Logan: "Tell me
more about this XSE, Ororo." Storm: "Someone has to keep the peace, Logan. The first generation of mutants needs to take
responsibility for their heirs." Sage: "Forgive the interruption, my friends. You have missions." (Sage's statement implies that
Logan and Kurt are officially part of the XSE team. This means that: they've already been assigned to work with Sage; that
Kurt's statement was probably a tongue-in-cheek remark made after he knew they were to work together - if so it's a change of
heart from his objection in X 157; and that Logan's inquiry about the XSE - after months of XSE members hanging with the X-
Men - was prompted by the fact that he was now part of the team, as of X 157. The whole Danger Room session may have been
prompted by the fact that Ororo, Kurt, and Logan all were put on the same team and they felt it necessary to conduct one of those
drills Alex mentioned in X 157.) Since the African mission was in reaction to an attack that happened "today," then UX 444 (15-
23) should occur the same day as UX 444 (12-14). Storm, Bishop, Marvel Girl, and Cannonball (all in XSE costumes) rout an
attack by the Weaponeers, high-tech raiders working for Achmed Al-Khalad; the Weaponeers appear next in XCAL3 11 (9-22).
Meanwhile, Sage calls Brian Braddock to arrange a visit to Braddock Manor. Meanwhile, Wolverine and Nightcrawler (both in
their new Reload costumes) arrive in Washington State to deal with an alpha-level mutant who has taken hostages. Logan: "The
local law won't accept our XSE badges." Nightcrawler: "We represent the XSE." (Both statements confirm that Kurt and Logan
are on the XSE team.) Green grass and trees in Britain and Washington State
UNCANNY X-MEN #445 (1-10)
The same day as UX 444 (12-23). Logan's and Kurt's Washington mission results in the death of Tommy Reichert, the
threatening mutant boy, and the arrest of Logan and Kurt. Arriving on the scene are Storm and Carol Danvers, who introduces
herself to local law enforcement as "Warbird of the Avengers. Chief of Tactical Operations, Department of Homeland Security"
and gets them to stand down. Sage uses her cyber glasses to see Logan (still in tattered costume) interrogated by FBI in Seattle,
the press reporting that the X-Men will not be charged, a press conference by Vange, and reactions to the event seen on TV and
the web Green grass and trees in Washington State.
DAREDEVIL v2 #61 (3-5)
One day. Because Hawkeye is shown with his armored sleeve, this segment must occur after XS 25, A/TB 6 (17-20), and A3 76.
Falcon's presence with the Avengers suggests that this segment occurs before CA&F 1-FB-FB (5:2). The Avengers (Cap,
Falcon, Iron Man, Wanda, and Hawkeye) stop Viper's terrorist scheme in Bulgaria. The Bulgarian army assume custody of
Viper from the team.
DAREDEVIL v2 #69 (14)
One day, "a few days" before DD2 65. It is "14 days" before DD2 68. Inside the prison courtyard, Bont gets some MGH in a
drug deal. Bont says he's "out of here in a few days."
One day. Reed, Sue, and Ben take Franklin and his friends camping (so it's probably a weekend) and encounter some
extraterrestrials. After having taken written tests, Johnny seeks a job as an apprentice firefighter. We see autumn leaves on trees
and someone mentions that it's "late in the season to be camping" in the New Jersey Pine Barrens and suggests that it's almost
time for snow.
The same night as FOUR 5. Sue tries to protect the boys while Reed impersonates an extraterrestrial to investigate the strange
visitors to the Pine Barrens. We see green grass and leafy trees, but it's also just before what is expected to be "the first snowfall
of the season" in New Jersey.
The same night as FOUR 6. It is a "few weeks" before FOUR 8. Sue saves Reed and some of the kids from captivity before the
aliens in the Pine Barrens leave earth. Johnny tells girlfriend Kourtney that he got his paid internship with the fire department.
We see "the first snow of the season" in New York and New Jersey, but no accumulation is seen.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #7/2
One night. Spidey leaves a perp hanging in a web net. Waning crescent moon.
Sunday, August 31
UNCANNY X-MEN #445 (11-22)
The early morning after UX 445 (1-10). "Later...after the end of a hard day," Nightcrawler is lamenting Reichert's death and
Storm arrives to comfort him and they dance in the sky above the Institute. "Pretty much simultaneously" (confirmed by Sage's
monitor screens), Bishop, Marvel Girl, and Cannonball arrive via car at Braddock Manor, where it's daytime - it must be before
sunrise at Westchester and after sunrise in England. Bishop: "Hey, Sam, apropos of nothing special - when do you Guthries get
to form your own team of X-Men?" Rachel: "Yeah! How many of you are active mutants?" Sam: "Well, I got a brother with
wings, can you believe it?" Rachel: "Not to mention your two sisters. How's your mom feel about that?" Sam: "She enrolled
Jay at the Institute, and of course he totally hates it, which means he hates me." (That places this segment before X/U 3/2.)
Rachel: "He'll get over it." Sam: "Oh man, you do not want to know how mama reacted when she saw us on TV. When she
called, I felt like a kid again. On my way out to the woodshed." (Mrs. Guthrie may have seen a TV rebroadcast after departing
the Institute in X 157, since she had to call to ream Sam out.) Bishop, Rachel, and Sam battle the cybernetic creature, the Fury,
under Braddock Manor. Believing himself to be in mortal danger, Sam thinks, "Paige - you'll be the oldest now. Look after Jay
an' Melody, sis. Make me proud!" (This implies that Melody is a student at Xavier's instead of at home with mom and the other
siblings, Jedediah, Lewis, Joelle, et al, plus Ray Jr.) Green grass and trees in Britain. Full moon.
UNCANNY X-MEN #446
The same day as UX 445 (11-22). The Fury uses Sam's cyber glasses to remotely possess Sage and send her on a rampage
through the Institute. Storm, Nightcrawler, and Wolverine free Sage of the Fury's influence and set off at once to Braddock
Manor to help their teammates defeat the Fury. Among the occupants of the Institute downed by the release of interdiction gas in
the melee - Scott and Emma (who must be having a very late elegant dinner); Dani, Beast and Gambit (without bandage),
presumably in the med lab (we can surmise that Beast is checking on Remy's eyesight this time); Rogue and the students from
that same Danger Room class from UX 444, all in standard X-training costumes and presumably in the Danger Room (in what
must be a new session). Sam's leg is "broken." Green grass and trees in Britain.
UNCANNY X-MEN #447
The same day as UX 446. The XSE team defeat the Fury and Braddock Manor is destroyed in the battle. In the aftermath, Storm
says: "What matters now is getting Sam to a hospital (presumably local). Then, we'll worry about Brian and the rest."
(Apparently, Sam quits the X-Men after recovering from the injury and appears next in XFOR2 2.) Logan: "You did good today,
Red." Kurt: "We all did. We may have some rough edges but we came together as a team." (The implication is that this was the
new XSE team's first mission together.) Green grass and trees in Britain
UNCANNY X-MEN #448
The same day as UX 447. The XSE team (without the injured Cannonball) return to Braddock Manor to find it in fine shape -
Brian says, "I'm sorry I wasn't here when the attack happened. As ruler of Otherworld, my responsibilities keep me so busy I
don't get back here often. The manor can usually take care of itself." Right after visiting the manor, Logan tells Rachel, "It's
what I was tryin' t' tell ya. We've been invited t' Buckingham Palace, for dinner with the Queen." (So this visit doesn't
necessarily have to occur right after UX 447.) That night, the XSE team prepares for their dinner and Rachel talks to Kitty (BTS)
on the phone. The XSE team is kidnaped by Viper, who infests them with power-stripping nannites and traps them in a twisted
version of Murderworld and apparently shoots Sage. Green grass and trees in Britain.
UNCANNY X-MEN #449
The same night as UX 448. After Viper leaves, "Sage" is revealed to be Logan in disguise, whose healing factor makes him
recover from the bullet wound. Kurt and Ororo crash a Purity meeting. Viper forces the X-Men into a choice - allow one of the
queen's housemaids to be blown up or force the detonation of a baby nuke. The heroes manage to save the day. Storm and
Rachel are injured and are taken away in an ambulance. Viper and Courtney Ross join Sebastian Shaw as the new Hellfire Club.
Green trees in London.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #5 (21-22)
The day after AAF2 5 (2-20). Anya returns home on a "Sunday." Her dad , upset that she didn't call him at all, grounds her, but
Anya asks to keep her internship at WebCorps. He demands to speak to her "supervisor" Miguel. Light clothing, green trees and
a few blowing leaves in New York.
GRAVITY #2 (17-18)
The day after GRAV 2 (10-16). Gravity meets the Greenwich Guardian and they patrol together.
DAREDEVIL v2 #61 (6-11)
One day, not long after DD2 61 (3-5). It is "two days" before DD2 62 (1-2). Bulgarian authorities agree to hand Viper over to
the U.S. if the U.S. hands over the Black Widow. Fury is ordered to recall Natasha from a field assignment in London, but he
tells her to disappear for a while. Waning crescent moon.
Monday, September 1: Labor Day
SPELLBINDERS #1 (1-9)
One day. At "5 minutes after midnight," Knox and Foley attempt a summoning spell to call the "fulcrum." The spell backfires
and Knox is transmuted into a swarm of lizards. Kim, napping in the moving truck, dreams Knox's death. That morning, Paul,
Renata and Mason discuss Knox's death, while Kim moves into her new house in Salem. Chad drops by Kim's house to
introduce himself, and warns her to keep her head down and not hang out with the "wicks." Green trees in Massachusetts.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #6
Perhaps the day after AAF2 5 (21-22). This story occurs before AHOS 1 (1-6). Miguel convinces Anya's father to let her keep
her "internship" at WebCorps. Anya shops for a "costume" at the mall, then she and Miguel rush off to disrupt the initiation
ceremony of the Wasps' own "Chosen One." They find the Wasps' mage Vincent performing a spell over a cocoon. Anya kicks
many of the Wasps' butts and Miguel casts a spell destroying the railcar, but they can't find Vincent or the cocoon amidst the
debris. Anya goes home and practices her new abilities, happy with her new role as a super-hero. A lot seems to happen on this
day with no reference to school; perhaps it is Labor Day.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #2 (18-23)
The "Monday morning" after NX 2 (10-17). At an outdoor orientation meeting for the students - clearly different from the
assembly in ASTONX3 1 - this assembly is specifically aimed at the formation of squads for combat training "in light of recent
dangers faced by the school." (This orientation may occur after classes have started; after all, the educational mission of the
Institute is more important than the combat training.) Cyclops, Emma, and Dani introduce their student training squads, the
Corsairs, the Hellions, and the New Mutants. (The other senior staff - Beast, Kitty, and Logan - are not here.) Cyclops: "I'm
happy to have you all back to the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning for a new semester. We've had some setbacks. But we're
still here. As you all know by now, Miss Frost and I will be running the school as headmasters. Professor Xavier is away,
pursuing other aspects of his dream." Cyclops: "Those squads that have already been chosen will be introduced today. But all of
you will be in a squad before the month is over." The students now have costumes and code names. Green grass and trees at
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #3 (1-19)
The same day as NX 2 (18-23). The New Mutants and Hellions argue and Cyclops decides to have them compete in field day
exercises. "Nineteen"-year-old Rahne tells "sixteen"-year-old Josh she's too old for him; age really should be an issue, as Rahne
must be older than 19 by now. Emma and Dani find and recruit Kevin Ford for the school; Kevin is "a fifteen-year-old who was
a student here last summer for a couple of weeks" (in NM2 3-6). Gambit cameos here without a bandage around his eyes, but it
is not known for sure that he is sighted. (Given all the other clues, I think this is going to have to happen while Remy is blind;
maybe he's taking a short break from the bandages or we can chalk this up to an art error.) Green grass and trees at Westchester.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #1 (16-23)
One day. This segment must occur after PPTSS 19. It is a "few months" before M/KSM 12 (1-18). It is probably more than
"four weeks and five days" before M/KSM 7 (4-21). It is a school day; Peter has a new class to teach, so it may be the start of a
new school year. CNN is showing a live battle involving Captain America and perhaps the Avengers, but it's hard to tell what's
going on. After Peter discovers that someone has vandalized Uncle Ben's tombstone, the culprit phones Peter and tells him he
knows Peter's secret identity and makes a veiled threat to harm Aunt May. Peter rushes to May's new apartment, only to
discover it trashed and May gone.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #2
The same stormy night as M/KSM 1 (16-23). Stark is shown as Secretary of Defense here, so this story must occur between IM3
83 (21) and A 500. Hawkeye has his armored sleeve, so it's sometime after XS 25, A/TB 6 (17-20), and A3 76, and Quicksilver
is with the group; we also see Wasp, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, Cap, and Ant-Man II; Falcon is not present, and neither is She-
Hulk (perhaps because she's off-world). Electro may appear here after S-H3 6. After ushering M.J. out of the city, Spidey tries
to track down Aunt May, who is in her "early seventies." He tries to recruit Black Cat, who's busy in Florida, then he tries to
shake down Osborn at Ryker's in a scene that I've placed after the revelation of Gwen's and Osborn's kids, although no mention
is made of that here. Desperate to locate Nick Fury, Spidey drops in on Avengers Embassy, where no security restraining system
exists as seen in S-H3 3 (5-10). After alienating the Assemblers, Spidey drops in on the Owl, who is working his way up in
organized crime in the wake of Kingpin's defeat in DD2 50. He tells Spidey that Vulture and Electro kidnaped May and Spidey
tracks them to a nightclub. Spidey's visit to Avengers Embassy may be the story reported in the Bugle in DD2 61 (22).
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #3 (1-18)
The same night as M/KSM 2. It is a "year" after M/KSM 3-FB (15:1). The Vulture probably appears here after ID 5. Spidey
battles Electro, who brags about his new costume and tells him that the Owl set him up because the villains absconded with
Owl's money, which they still have here, so it must be within a couple of days after M/KSM 3-FB (15:2). Spidey is seriously
injured and taken to the hospital, where doctors remove his mask. Peter is identified by an EMT as "male. twenties," but the age
could be an error attributable to Peter's youthful physique. Green trees in New York.
DAREDEVIL v2 #65
One day. It must be much less than "12 months" after DD2 65-FB (27-32). It is "10 months" (probably inclusive) after DD2 65-
FB (20-25) and is probably less than "13 months" after DD2 65-FB (12-16). It must be more than "14 months" after DD2 65-FB
(1-6). Agent Del Toro is standing around the FBI headquarters going over the Murdock file. Her boss hands her a memo (dated
a topical "5/7/2005") stating that Alexander Bont, the Kingpin's predecessor, is being released from prison. The boss notes that
Matt Murdock was his lawyer.
DAREDEVIL v2 #61 (12-21)
It must be the day after DD2 61 (6-11). It is "a year" after DD2 36 (1-4) and "39 hours" before DD2 64 (13-15). A scene from
this segment is repeated in DD2 66-FB (18), in which Alexander Bont is present, thus showing that this segment occurs after
DD2 65-FB (27-32). On what is presumably a slow news day, Matt chews Ben Urich out for a Pulse piece by Kat Farrell about
Daredevil. Matt finds Natasha (who has been doing SHIELD assignments "for over a year") in his apartment seeking a place to
stay, then they both go off to bust up an arms shipment by Jigsaw.
DAREDEVIL v2 #61 - FB
The same night as DD2 61. In this newspaper photo, Daredevil and Black Widow swing into action.
DAREDEVIL v2 #62 - FB
The same night as DD2 61-FB. DD and Black Widow beat up Jigsaw down at the Pier before heading back home to Matt's
place, There, Natasha hits on Matt, but he declines to respond to her seduction.
Tuesday, September 2
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #3 (20-23)
The morning after NX 3 (1-19). The Hellions and the New Mutants compete in their field day exercise. Green grass and trees at
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #4
The same day as NX 3 (20-23). The Hellions defeat the New Mutants at field day and Josh blames Sofia's lack of leadership.
Later that day, we see a love polygon develop involving Cessily, Kevin, Laurie, Josh, and Rahne. At dinner, Agent Pierce of the
FBI shows up to arrest Kevin for the murder of his father. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #5 (1-14)
The same day as NX 4. Pierce tries to get Kevin to surrender himself for questioning. The New Mutants attempt to sneak Kevin
out of the Institute, but they are caught. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
DAREDEVIL v2 #61 (22)
The morning after DD2 61-FB. The Daily Bugle reports on Daredevil and the Black Widow and also reports "trouble at
Avengers Mansion?", which may be a reference to M/KSM 2; this same newspaper edition appears as an old newspaper in
PULSE 7, so this segment must occur sometime before PULSE 7. When the arms shipment bust hits the press, a furious
Pentagon director demands to talk to Nick Fury.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #3 (19-22)
The day after M/KSM 3 (1-18). After spending "all night" in a distant motel (where we see green grass and trees), M.J. sees a
TV report on Spidey's battle with Electro. The hospital has not instituted a media blackout and so Vulture, in a new costume,
bursts into Peter's hospital room.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #4
The same day as M/KSM 3 (19-22). It is "two and a half days" before M/KSM 5. The Vulture abducts Peter and drops him
from the sky, and Peter is unable to save himself without his web shooters - this is either an indication that M/KSM 1-12 must
occur before PPTSS2 15-20 (in which he gains the ability to shoot webs organically) or an indication that Peter wasn't thinking
straight; it may actually be the latter. Peter is saved by Black Cat, who is working for the Owl, who notes that he's rebuilding his
career "from that Daredevil fiasco" in DD2 45. Felicia delivers Vulture to Owl, who tortures him and Electro. Peter is returned
to the hospital and an orderly submits photos of the unmasked Spidey to the Bugle.
SPELLBINDERS #1 (10-23)
The day after SPELLBINDERS 1 (1-9). At her "first day at John Hathorne High School" (apparently, school has already started
for the other kids), Kim is attacked by an air elemental and is saved by Mink and Liza Beth. Liza Beth covers the attack to the
principal by claiming it was a fight, but all the students appear to be aware of the elemental and take such things in stride. At
lunch, Kim ticks off Mason by claiming not to know anything about magic, and she gets invited to a no-wicks-allowed party on
Saturday by Kris. That afternoon, Knox's ghost appears and orders Kim to make the others into "a seven," but she is
immediately attacked magically again and apparently killed. Green grass and trees in Massachusetts.
SPELLBINDERS #2 (1-5)
The same day as SPELLBINDERS 1 (10-23). Kim finds herself in ghost form, surrounded by other ghosts, many of which seem
to revere her. Sally's ghost points out that her body isn't dead and suggests that she's just spirit-walking. Kim commands the
ghosts away, just as Sally warns her to avoid the Pillar of Smoke. Kim returns to her body where her parents are fretting over
her, and claims she just fell and hit her head.
DAREDEVIL v2 #62 (1-2)
The same day as DD2 61 (22). It is "two days" after DD2 61 (6-11). Director Wallace of the CIA is ticked off at Fury, who has
apparently allowed the Black Widow to remain free. "It's an election year," and the implication is that it's campaign season
before a presidential election.
DAREDEVIL v2 #62 (11-20:6)
The same day as DD2 62 (1-2). At their law office, Foggy holds up the newspaper showing the Widow/DD story and asks Matt
if he slept with Natasha, but Matt says no and that he still loves Milla. Foggy notes that Milla wants an annulment and Matt says
he doesn't care. Jigsaw bursts into Matt's office and asks what he did wrong to bring Daredevil down upon his weapons
smuggling operation. Jigsaw offers to give Matt a cut of the money, but Matt rejects Jigsaw. Later, Matt has lunch with Natasha
and explains he's legally married and still in love with Milla. Matt asks Natasha why she's really here. Green trees in New
York, where it's warm enough to eat al fresco.
DAREDEVIL v2 #63 (1-2:2)
The same day as DD2 62 (11-20). From two blocks away, a sniper gets Matt and Natasha in his sights.
DAREDEVIL v2 #62 (20:7-22)
The same day as DD2 63 (1-2). Natasha starts to explain she thinks someone's put a price on her head, but just then, the sniper
opens fire on the café where they're having lunch. Green trees in New York, where it's warm enough to eat al fresco.
DAREDEVIL v2 #63 (2:3-23)
The same day as DD2 62 (20-22). Matt and Natasha duck the gunfire. Daredevil jumps to the rooftop and pummels the assassin,
a CIA operative named Quinn. Quinn disables Daredevil with an ultra-sonic device and shoots Natasha through the shoulder.
Quinn escapes, Natasha destroys the device, and she and DD help the people wounded in the assassination attempt. That
evening, back at Matt's house, Matt dresses Natasha's wound and Natasha discusses her reason for being at Matt's. Jigsaw and a
group of thugs break into Matt's house, determined to make Murdock pay.
DAREDEVIL v2 #64 (1-12)
The same night as DD2 63 (2-23). Nick Fury looks at the online addition of the Daily Bugle, the headline of which reads:
"Murdock Mowdown: Gunfire rings out for lunchtime lawyer and his mystery gal pal." He concludes that the Widow is hiding
in plain sight with Murdock. Natasha kicks Jigsaw's butt and the police take him away. Later that night, Natasha and Matt
prepare to leave Matt's house, but Natasha gets a message on her wristwatch from Fury, telling the two of them to sit tight, and
be bait to draw Quinn out. The web site notes that date is "7/26/04" (which may be topical) and the temperature in New York
today was"85 degrees." The site also infers that it's a presidential election season. Full moon.
Wednesday, September 3
DAREDEVIL v2 #64 (13-15)
The morning after DD2 64 (1-12), "39 hours" after DD2 61 (6-11). As Matt and Natasha step out the front door, Quinn taking
aim from a nearby rooftop, but Fury and SHIELD shoot him with a tranquilizer dart and take him into custody. The danger now
over with, Natasha kisses Matt goodbye and they go their separate ways. Blowing leaves in New York.
SPELLBINDERS #2 (6-18)
The morning after SPELLBINDERS 2 (1-5). Over breakfast, Paul's coven discusses the idea of merging with Foley's. Mason is
very against the idea. Kim is late for school again, having apparently been at the hospital for a checkup. During science class,
Kim presses Foley for an explanation, and learns about the magical bloodlines in the town. Foley's explanation is interrupted by
the science lab bursting into flame. Everyone gets out safely except Kim, who has to rescue herself by putting out the fire with a
mixture of ammonium salts and baking soda. Chad asks Kim to Kris' party as a date. Kim reveals that she's adopted and places
the party on her (strangely arranged) calendar for Saturday, the first of a month with 30 days. Green grass and trees in
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #5 (15-23)
The "morning" after NX 5 (1-14). The school gives Kevin up to the FBI, but the Hellions vow to bring him back and recruit
Sofia to help them. It is a class day at Xavier's, where we see green trees.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #6 (1-18)
The same day as NX 5 (15-23). It is "two weeks" before NX 6 (19-22). Jay alerts the New Mutants and they go stop the
Hellions from fighting the FBI. Alerted by Rahne, Scott and Emma arrive on the scene and send all the students back to the
Institute. Kevin goes off with the FBI. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
IDENTITY DISC #5 - FB (14:3-14:5)
One day. SHIELD agent Valerie Jessup gets a copy of a disc from AIM that proves she tampered with SHIELD files to
disassociate herself with the Vulture.
IDENTITY DISC #5 - FB (3:3-3:4)
One night. Bullseye is shot at by members of two rival syndicates with whom he has signed exclusive contracts. Deadpool looks
at a photo of his ex-wife.
IDENTITY DISC #5 - FB (3:6)
Perhaps the same night as ID 5-FB (3:3-3:4). Sandman spends an evening at home with his mother.
Thursday, September 4
DAREDEVIL v2 #64 (16-22)
The day after DD2 64 (13-15). This segment occurs "months" before DD2 77 (7-22). Fury calls up CIA Director Wallace and
tells him that he knows Wallace hired Quinn and that he's not to do anything unlawful like this again or he'll send a file on
Wallace to J. Jonah Jameson. Madame Hydra is set free from her Bulgarian prison and Natasha confronts the Bulgarian diplomat
who asked for her in exchange for Madame Hydra. It turns out to be Natasha's former husband, Alexi. SHIELD and an
Avengers quinjet arrive on the scene to take Alexi into custody. Meanwhile, Matt hands Milla the signed annulment paper after
making one last failed attempt to ask for her back. We see falling leaves in a rainy New York. Full moon.
SHE-HULK v3 #9 - FB (1-2)
One "chilly autumn morn," "two weeks" before S-H3 9 (3-16). Hercules stops an armored car robbery by Armadillo, Jack
O'Lantern, and Constrictor, the latter of whom Herc injures severely.
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1 - FB (10:1-10:3)
One day, perhaps near the beginning of a school year. Teddy Altman meets Greg Norris in the school locker room.
Friday, September 5
SHE-HULK v3 #9 - FB (17:2-18:1)
The day after S-H3 9-FB (1-2). In a bar, Hercules sings a song about his defeat of the Constrictor.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #5
One day, whose morning (before "lunch") occurs "two and a half days" after M/KSM 4. It must be more than just "a few weeks"
before M/KSM 9 as it is "two entire months" before M/KSM 12 (1-18). M.J. mentions the "big part" she got in ASM 509.
Eddie Brock arrives in New York. Peter awakens in his apartment (having missed "a few days" of school), where M.J. and
Felicia have been caring for him. They show him the Bugle article featuring his unmasked photo. Because his face was beaten
up, he is not recognized, so Jameson has offered a reward (donated by a mystery person) for identifying him; this reward must be
different from and probably occurs after that noted in ASM 514, judging by the "What? Again?" remark. M.J. notes that Matt
Murdock, Nick Fury, and Dr. Strange have been working on locating Aunt May. M.J. confesses to Peter that they are in financial
trouble. That evening, Spidey defeats Doc Ock, who has escaped from a convoy escorting him from prison. The cops then attack
Spidey to collect on the reward money. Green grass and trees in New York, and it is warm enough for M.J. to be outdoors in a
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #6 (1-3)
The same evening as M/KSM 5. Spidey escapes from the horde of cops.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #6 - FB (12:1)
One night, "a little while" after M/KSM 6-FB (11). The guard rushes his wife to the hospital.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #12/2
One night. Logan is in Canada to see "if any of the old gang's about," an indication that this story probably occurs before AF3
2-FB-FB (20:2). He runs into a drunk, self-pitying Puck in a bar. Logan gives Eugene advice before Puck is arrested for having
beat up a bunch of bar patrons and having caused property damage. The Christmas lights in the bar may be a year-round
decoration as the trees outside are leafy.
Saturday, September 6
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #6 (4-22)
The day after M/KSM 6 (1-3). It may be more than just "three weeks," before M/KSM 7 (4-21) and the "month" before M/KSM
9. It is the "week" after the woman Osborn treated first got sick from the treatment. This segment must occur after XX 46 (12-
23) and probably after FF 516, given that Hydro-Man appears here in his new costume. Given that the Xavier Institute appears rebuilt with students hanging around, this segment should occur either after X 157 or very shortly before. According to Sandman, "Tigra's been living in L.A. for the last six months" and "she teamed up with Wonder Man against Boomerang just a few weeks ago." On a day that "isn't April first," Peter learns about an auction uptown "tonight" involving Eddie Brock. In his search for Aunt May, Spidey turns to the imprisoned Osborn and then goes to the Xavier Institute, where Rachel Summers tells him she thinks May is dead. Emma and Scott are in San Antonio dealing with a kid with thermonuclear powers. That night, a bunch of villains shows up at the auction, where Eddie Brock offers to sell Venom for charity money. Peter notes that "Aunt May is seventy-two years old." Green grass and trees in Westchester.
SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN v2 #38 - FB (3:3)

IDENTITY DISC #1 (3-8)
One day, shortly after ID 5-FB (14) and ID 5-FB (3). It is "one week" before ID 5. It must be more than "twenty years" after ID
1-FB (1-2) and more than "sixteen years" after ID 1-FB (13). Sandman may appear here after S-H3 6. Juggernaut is here in his
gray costume and Sabretooth in classic orange and brown costume with fur (his first costume). Valerie Jessup, claiming to be an
agent of Tristram Silver named Valeria Merrick, recruits Vulture, Sandman, Juggernaut, and Sabretooth for a job.
GRAVITY #2 (19:1)
One day. Gravity and the Greenwich Guardian take out a gang dressed in skeleton costumes.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #3/2 (1-2:1)
One evening, between "8:30 PM" and "9:07," "Jay" Guthrie broods about his dead girlfriend at Xavier's and calls his mother.
Students abound at the Institute and there's a reference to "flying class," so classes must have started. Green grass and trees at
SPELLBINDERS #2 (19-22)
A Saturday, at least two days after, but less than a week after, SPELLBINDERS 2 (6-18). Kim arrives at Chad's house and meets
his crazy mother, also learning that Sally is dead and has a connection to Chad. They leave for the party, watched by Foley and
Liza Beth, who are weaving a protection over Kim in case she's attacked at the party with no wicks around to protect her. Green
grass and trees in Massachusetts.
The same evening as SPELLBINDERS #2 (19-22). Kim has known Chad for "like 6 days." The guys are watching a pro-
football game, Patriots v Giants (the NFL apparently plays on Saturdays in the MU). Out at a park, Paul points out to Renata that
even if Kim is warded, she could still be attacked by mundane means. Renata immediately rushes off towards the party, where
the power has gone out, and one kid attacked with magical lightning. In the panic, a cloaked figure attacks Kim with a knife.
Mason calls in Foley's coven as backup to make sure that Renata doesn't get hurt. At the house, Sally's ghost appears to Kim
again, and shows her how to spirit walk deliberately. Kim scouts a path and knocks down the cloaked figure, which becomes a
werewolf and continues chasing her. Faced with all seven witches though, the werewolf changes again and escapes. The witches
decide that Kim should go to the Pillar of Smoke and unlock her power, but she declines because of Sally's advice. When she
gets home, though, all her stuff has been trashed, and she changes her mind, wanting whatever power is coming to her. Finally,
the villain is revealed to be Chad. Green grass and trees in Massachusetts. Full moon.
Sunday, September 7
X-MEN UNLIMITED #3/2 (2:2-12)
The early morning ("a nice night") after XU2 3/2 (1-2). At "3:07" AM, Cannonball checks in on brother Jay, in response to
Paige's concerns about Jay - this appears to be the first time they've really talked since Jay's arrival. They fly to Manhattan,
rescue people from a burning building, and have a talk in which Sam encourages Jay. (This may not be on a school night, since
it's unlikely Sam would wake up his brother in the middle of the night to go to New York if it were.) Jay: "I don't want to be a
mutant anymore." (No mention of Dr. Rao's serum here, so maybe it hasn't been announced yet.) Jay mentions that Sam called
his family once "two months ago." Cannonball's leg is fine; if this indeed occurs after UX 449, then his broken leg was probably
healed by Archangel or Elixir by now. Jay has not heard of the Hellfire Club before now. Green grass and trees in New York.
The day after SPELLBINDERS 3. Kim and both covens hike through the woods to the Pillar of Smoke. Chad follows, easily
bypassing all the wards they set behind them. Chad kills the Pillar's guardian and attacks them just as they realize that their
opponent has been using their own magic powers against them. Foley and Kim escape, arriving at the Pillar just at sundown, but
when Kim touches it, she doesn't gain any power. Chad absorbs power directly from the Pillar, then shatters it and consumes a
large piece. He travels away, arriving back in town sometime after dark. Green grass and trees in Massachusetts. Full or
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #1 - FB (9:4)
One day. Cap watches Hawkeye (shown in his armored sleeve) practice his archery.
Monday, September 8
IDENTITY DISC #1 (9-22)
One early morning, starting at "midnight" of the night after the day of ID 1 (3-8). Deadpool and Bullseye join the others
recruited Valeria, who assigns them with obtaining what she claims is the Identity Disc from AIM. Sandman refuses to cooperate
and is discorporated (as planned).
IDENTITY DISC #2 (1-14)
The same day as ID 1 (9-22). It is a day that the offices of Koenig & Strey are open. Valeria prepares the five remaining villains
for the AIM raid by assigning them to do surveillance and obtain items that will facilitate the raid. We see green trees and
Brooklyn Tech College is in session.
The morning after SPELLBINDERS 4. Banished by Chad to the Salem Witches' home-world, the witches are unable to get
home, because the Thief has absorbed almost all the magic out of the world. Back on Earth, Chad begins mind controlling all the
other witches and gathering them in the school, while Sally's ghost tells Kim that the foundation of the Pillar still stands. The
original Thief on the witches' world attacks, but they combine their powers long enough to travel back to Earth. Right at dawn,
the pillar reveals its foundation to Kim, and she finds the right sigil to unlock her powers, transporting herself and Foley to the
land of the dead. In the school gym, Chad combines all the town's witches in order to bring Sally back to life, but is interrupted
by the two covens. Green grass and trees in Massachusetts.
The same day as SPELLBINDERS #5 (1-22). In the land of the dead, Kim learns that she is a Necromancer, and her job is to
heal breaches like the one Chad created in resurrecting Sally. Back at the gym, Chad defeats the witches quickly again, but is
rejected by the resurrected Sally, and decides to kill everyone. Kim and Foley arrive, and with everyone else's help, hold Chad
off long enough for Kim to banish Sally's soul. Since Chad used his own soul as an anchor, he is also dragged off into the
Underworld. Everybody picks themselves up, and Kim finds one of the lizards that got made out of Knox, promising to help him
next. Green grass and trees in Massachusetts.
Tuesday, September 9

The same rainy night as ID 4 (20-22). Fury interrogates Vulture, believing that Sabretooth was the mastermind behind the
operation. As Vulture is led away by a SHIELD agent, it is revealed that the agent is Valeria, that Valeria is Vulture's daughter,
and that the operation was to retrieve the disc that linked Valeria with Vulture. Fury and Dum Dum can't figure out the reason
for the villains' AIM operation since SHIELD possesses the Identity Disc.
Wednesday, September 10
IDENTITY DISC #5 (21-22)
The day after ID 5 (1-20). Sandman is alive and well in St. Lucia, having been paid to fake his death at Valeria's hand. Tristram

DAREDEVIL v2 #66 (1-3/4:1)
One day. Alexander Bont steps out of a taxi onto the streets of Hell's Kitchen, which he doesn't recognize anymore. Newspaper
headlines read "Mutant terrorism on the rise" and "Captain America speaks out against war." It's snowing hard in New York;
temporal references throughout DD are inconsistent and this one may be topical.
DAREDEVIL v2 #69 (20-21)
The same day as DD2 66 (1-3/4). It is "two days" before DD2 68. Bont visits Melvin Potter at his costume store and threatens
to kill his "four year old daughter" unless he puts on his Gladiator costume and gets Daredevil. Snow, likely topical, is falling in

DAREDEVIL v2 #66 (19-22)
The same day as DD2 66 (17). Bont visits his wife's grave then pays a visit to a strip club owner Slick Saul and accuses him of
being one of the gang who took over his territory after he went to jail. Bont takes a MGH pill and gains momentary super-
strength, which he uses to kill Saul. It is snowing in New York and snow has accumulated on the ground; this may be topical.
DAREDEVIL v2 #67 - FB (14-15)
The same day as DD2 66 (19-22). Special Agent Del Toro of the FBI stops by the strip club to investigate the murder of Saul.
She examines the body and figures out from the strippers that it must've been Bont who killed Saul.

One night during the school year. This segment occurs after AAF2 6. While on patrol, Arana and Miguel beat up some
hoodlums and get them to squeal on Thomas Bander, an apparently corrupt judge working with the Sisterhood of the Wasp. The
hoodlums say that Bander is paying a secret visit to Court of Appeals at "midnight" tonight. Miguel calls up Ted and gets him to
hack into the Court's security systems. Miguel also calls Nina, telling her to come for back up.
Saturday, September 13
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #1 (7-22)
The day after AHOS 1 (1-6). At "midnight," Arana, Miguel, and Nina catch Bander sneaking into the Court of Appeals to steal
files for the Sisterhood. They capture him and knock him unconscious, but several Wasp agents burst in. Miguel and Arana beat
them up, Arana throws the unconscious judge into Nina's car, and they escape. "Later," Anya sits on a rooftop recovering from
the battle. Miguel calls in and reports they have Bander in custody. He tells Anya to take the next few days off because she's
coming down with a cold. Anya goes home to find her father cooking dinner (apparently early in the morning!). He tells her to
get on with her homework. As they sit down for dinner, he gets a phone call from his reporter partner Dan. After hanging up the
phone, Gil mentions he's working on a piece investigating corrupt Bander. Green grass, leafy trees, and short sleeves in New York.
DAREDEVIL v2 #67
The morning after DD2 70-FB (2-15). Matt Murdock, his costume visible beneath his shirt, is tied up in a chair at Fogwell's
Gym and is punched repeatedly by Gladiator in the presence of Alexander Bont, who decides to videotape the scene.
DAREDEVIL v2 #68
The same morning as DD2 67. It is the day after DD2 68-FB (13-19), "two days" after DD2 69 (20-21), "years" after DD2 69
(3-6), and apparently "twenty years" after DD2 68-FB (13). It is "14 days" after DD2 69-FB (14) and must be more than "14
months" after DD2 69-FB (1-2). Melvin pleads with Bont to let him slay Murdock now, but Bont says he wants to torture Matt
some more. Bont stops videotaping Murdock being beaten up and he and Melvin drag Matt outside to show Hell's Kitchen its
"Kingpin." Bont is "93 years old."
DAREDEVIL v2 #70
The same morning as DD2 68. Bont and Melvin toss the beaten up Matt Murdock out onto the street. The people of Hell's
Kitchen start standing around the spectacle and see Matt's costume under his shirt. As Del Toro gives a statement to the police
about the robbery, a cop runs in exclaiming that "some maniac chained up Matt Murdock and is parading him up and down the
damn street." Bont tells Melvin to execute Matt, but Del Toro bursts onto the scene and kicks Gladiator's butt. Bont pops
another MGH pill and throws Matt back inside the gym. As Bont beats Matt up, his heart explodes and he dies at Matt's feet.
The Feds question Matt in the hospital. Foggy Nelson explains that Bont captured Matt, dressed him up in a Daredevil costume
because of the media smear against Matt, and had Melvin beat Matt up. The Feds say SHIELD has Melvin in custody and that
he's going back to jail.
GRAVITY #2 (19:2)
One day. Gravity and the Greenwich Guardian save people from a burning building.
Sunday, September 14
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #2 (1-15:4)
One day, shortly after AHOS 1 (7-22). Anya, Miguel, and Ted interrogate Bander at Webcorps. They learn from him that
Vincent, the leader of the Wasps, is hiring an assassin named Amun to help the Wasps out in criminal endeavors. Amun is to
meet Vincent tonight at a secret rendezvous place in an abandoned warehouse. Anya heads home for a few hours and catches her
father writing up a story on Bander for the newspaper. Anya tries to read the story when he's not looking, but doesn't learn
much. She soon gets a phone call from Ted that it's time to hook up with Miguel to break up Vincent's meeting with Amun.
Miguel arrives before Arana and tries to break up the meeting between Vincent and Amun, but Vincent says that he purposefully
had Bander leak the information on this meeting to Webcorps, and that this is a trap to give Amun a chance to prove himself by
killing Miguel. Arana arrives and all four battle. All four retreat when the battle becomes a stalemate. When Arana tells Miguel
that she saw the face of Amun during the battle, he says that she is now marked for death by Amun, and must be on guard. Green
trees in New York.
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #2 - FB
The same night as AHOS 2 (1-15). Miguel walks Arana home. He does a perimeter check but determines that Amun didn't
follow them. He tells her to come directly to Webcorps after she gets out of school tomorrow and warns that her life is still in
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #2 - FB - FB (20:2)
One day, "three days" before AF3 2 (18-21). This flashback probably occurs after XU 12/2. Alpha Flight is called on to
investigate an occurrence. Sasquatch, his memory wiped of the incident, is the only one to make it back.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #1 - FB (3-8)
It must be the same night as AF3 2-FB-FB (20). During the college season at McGill University, Walter Langkowski tries to
recruit Yukon Jack and Zuzha Yu into a new Alpha Flight. Green trees and jackets in Canada.
WEAPON X v2 #26 (1-10)
One night, after WX2 28-FB. After hanging out with fellow bad guys in a bar, Sabretooth reports to Michael Grand, his
employer at Megacorp (who is actually John Sublime in disguise). Grand wants Creed to retrieve Sinister, who as Dr. Windsor
now runs a medical research facility. I have Constrictor here, well and in civilian garb, shortly before his beating in S-H3 9-FB
Monday, September 15

but Sinister's lackey Hans mops the floor with Creed.
WEAPON X v2 #27
The same day as WX2 26 (11-22). Creed faces nine more Hans-type individuals and is defeated. Sinister disappears and when
Creed comes to, his Megacorp employers express their dissatisfaction. As Creed leaves Megacorp on a stormy night, he
WEAPON X v2 #28 (1-18)
The same day as WX2 27. Concerned that the Hans army makes him dispensable, Scalphunter gives Sabretooth information that
allows him to get to Sinister and take out the Hanses. As Creed and Essex prepare to battle, Grand shows up and pays
Sabretooth, who leaves. Grand reveals himself as Sublime to Sinister and wants to make a deal with him - the Hans army in
exchange for a peek at the mutant files that Creed stole from Weapon X.
One day, a "few weeks" after FOUR 7. It is a school day at Pembroke Academy. Johnny complains that all he's done at the
firehouse is clean, and the chief tells him that "these last few years have been rough on the firemen," a reference that must
include 9-11. Namor shows up to woo Sue yet again, and he gets into a fight with Reed. The recap states that "winter blankets
Manhattan," and we do see snow on the ground, along with bare trees and trees still featuring autumn colors. Also, the Hudson
River is noted as being "half-frozen." These, unfortunately, are probably topical references.
The same day as FOUR 8. It is "one month" before FOUR 10 (9-22). Reed's fight with Namor is interrupted when Johnny
recruits them to help find a boy suspected of having fallen into the icy Hudson River. Namor finds the boy dead in the river and
returns him to his mother. Meanwhile, Psycho-Man shows up on a bus at Port Authority vowing revenge on Susan. We see
snow and bare trees, and "the temperature only plummeted a few days ago," making ice on the Hudson still thin in places - these
are probably topical references.
FOUR #11 - FB (1-2:1)
The same day as FOUR 9. It is "one month" before FOUR 11. Psycho-Man walks down the snowy streets of New York.
RUNAWAYS #18 - FB
One day, "three months" after RUN 17 (17-23). Captain America, the Scarlet Witch, and the Vision are at L.A. City Hall, where
they've apparently just arrested some Pride agents. Accompanying narration suggests that this has been happening fairly
regularly over the last few months. Journalists ask Cap whether it's true that the Runaways stopped the Pride. Cap dodges the
question and lectures everyone about the dangers of underage super-heroics.
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #2 (15:5-22)
The day after AHOS 2-FB. Anya walks to school with her best friend Lynn. They go to class and have a quiz, when into the
classroom walks Amun, who's posing as an Egyptian transfer student named Jon Kasiya. Green grass and trees in New York.
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #3
The same day as AHOS 2 (15-22). It must be a year after AHOS 3-FB (5:1-5:3). Kasiya sits down in class next to Anya,
notices the spider tattoo on her arm, and figures out that Anya is Arana. After school, Amun starts snooping into Anya's private
life. Webcorps plans to move Bander to a safe house at "10:00 pm tonight." Both sides prepare for action - Miguel and Nina at
Webcorps, and Vincent and Sam at the Wasps headquarters. Anya goes home to find her father going out on an assignment,
realizes he's investigating Bander, and thinks that she might run into him tonight. She tries to find out all her father knows by
getting Ted to hack into his computer, but she doesn't learn much. That night the Wasps attack the armed escort going from
Webcorps to the safe house. Sam kills Bander and Amun wounds Miguel with a dagger. Amun tells Arana that he knows her
secret identity and tells her to surrender or he will kill everyone close to her. Just then, she sees her father videotaping the battle
nearby. She grabs him, carries him to safety, and destroys the video card for his digital camera. When she gets back, the battle is
over and the Wasps have fled. Miguel is rushed to a medical facility at Webcorps and Arana feels like she's failed.
Tuesday, September 16
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #2 - FB (3-17)
The day after AF3 1-FB (9-21). According to the recap page of AF3 9, this story occurs "little more than two weeks" before AF3

Mapleleaf. Green grass and trees in Canada.

Ulik, Thor fights Loki's ally Geirrodeur in his "last" battle before T2 82 (6-9), while leading the Asgardians to Vanaheim.
WEAPON X v2 #28 (19-21)
Perhaps the rainy night of the day after WX2 28 (1-18). Sublime talks about his deal with Sinister as a Hans is being tested.
Creed plays poker with Scalphunter when he is called away to join the Brotherhood, so this segment must occur before X 161.
Sabretooth notes that Sinister was leaving for Genosha "this morning," and that places this segment before XCAL3 5.
SHE-HULK v3 #8 (13-15)
One night. It may not be "almost three months" after S-H3 8 (1-12), but rather only almost three weeks. Guardsmen arrive at
GLK&H to check up on Southpaw and leave after being fooled by Ditto's impersonation of Southpaw. Full moon.

winning the fight.
Thursday, September 18
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #1 - FB (11-12:2)
The early morning after CA&F 1-FB (4-6). This flashback must occur after A 503-FB (6). At "12:32 PM" (should be AM) at
Avengers "Mansion" (should be "Embassy"), Cap tells the Scarlet Witch that he's going to Cuba, where a hurricane is about to
hit. This places this story during hurricane season, between June 1 and November 30. Wanda is wearing the costume she first
was seen wearing in A3 65.

and saves the Skard. Pip takes her and Southpaw back to earth. Beta Ray Bill probably appears here before T2 82 (15-23).
SHE-HULK v3 #9 (3-14)
The same day as S-H3 8 (18-22). It is "two weeks" after S-H3 9-FB (1-2) and "a while" before A 500 (9-37). It may be over
three weeks, not "over three months," after S-H3 8 (1-12). She-Hulk and Southpaw return to earth and Jen exclaims that she
hasn't "checked in with the Avengers" in all the time she was gone; this is an indication that this segment must occur before she
leaves the team in A:FINALE. Jen touches base with John Jameson and they go to the Baxter Building to have Reed Richards
whip up a costume that helps Jen control her new strength as She-Hulk. Meanwhile, Mallory at GLK&H is representing
Hercules in a lawsuit filed by the injured Constrictor. Green trees in Manhattan.

One day, shortly after AHOS 4 (1-2). At Webcorps, Miguel's health is declining; he and Arana are linked and his health will
continue to fade until Arana comes back. In a letter, Anya informs Webcorps that she's staying away until she figures out how to
deal with Amun. Ted goes looking for her. That evening, Spider-Man encounters Arana for the first time. Arana explains she's
going to stop being a crime fighter because a villain learned her secret identity and now everyone is in danger around her. Spidey
tells her she can't quit when the going gets tough. Just then, Ted drives by on his bicycle below, chased by some thugs in a car.
Arana leaps to the rescue, kicking the thugs' butts, and Spider-Man swings off, wishing her good luck. After the thugs are
beaten, Ted begs Arana to come back to Webcorps, but then Amun shows up and starts to attack Arana again. He has the upper
hand at first, but Arana becomes angry, her eyes start to glow, and she starts kicking Amun's butt. Ted warns that she's releasing
the "spirit of the hunter" in her, and that she could go out of control. Amun retreats and Arana snaps out of it, not remembering
her rage. Green trees and short sleeves in New York. Full moon.

The same night as AHOS 4 (3-23). It is "two weeks" before AHOS 7. Anya and Ted arrive back at Webcorps and check on
Miguel, who is still in the medical facility, where "Nina's been staying over every night," keeping vigil. When Anya gets near
Miguel, he recovers. Meanwhile, Vincent tells Amun they are pleased with his work so far. Amun then asks about the origin of
the Sisterhood of the Wasps, while at the exact same time, Anya asks about the history of the Brotherhood of the Spider. To
protect Anya's identity, Miguel casts a spell and makes her tattoo vanish. He tells her it will reappear in times of crisis. The
waning crescent moon is inconsistent with the full moons of AHOS 4 and 6.

plaintiffs play a tape of Herc singing about his beating of Constrictor (now in full body cast), then Jen convinces Herc to do the
right thing and pay Constrictor, much to Mallory's chagrin.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #9
The day after AF3 8 (22). Sunpyre, who apparently died in UX 405, is here alive and well. A mind-controlled Big Hero 6
attacks Alpha Flight as they picnic in a park where we see green grass and trees. As the Flight defeats the Japanese heroes,
Flashback arrives on the scene to ask Alpha Flight for help. They go to Flight's headquarters, where we see snow. Flashback
wants the Flight to go back in time and prevent his future self from getting killed in the past. Nemesis uses her magic blade to
send Major Mapleleaf back, and he prevents James Hudson from taking his job with Roxxon, an action that will indirectly save
Flashback. In the present, Alpha Flight is attacked by Box robots.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #10
The same day as AF3 9. After Sasquatch determines that Mapleleaf's efforts created an undesirable present, Nemesis dispatches
Centennial to the past, via a weigh-station at which Nemesis reveals to him that she's his wife. Rutherford changes history again,
this time in such a way as to turn Alpha Flight's new present into an acid rain bath.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #11
The same day as AF3 10. After determining that Rutherford's efforts created a nuked Canada, Nemesis dispatches Zuzha and
Yukon to the past. Their meddling creates a present in which super-heroes are outlawed.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #12 (1-20)
The same day as AF3 11. Nemesis dispatches herself to the past but things end up getting messed up yet again. Sasquatch then
dispatches himself to the past and convinces the past Shaman to use magic to set things right. Everything is rebooted to the battle
with Big Hero 6 and Flashback arrives with Shaman's bag. From the bag emerges Alpha Flight from around AF 9, and while the
original Alpha Flight are still in space, their time-traveling versions join the current team.
One school day during the college year, presumably a Friday since a professor tells his class to "have a great weekend." At the
New York Public Library, Jennifer Kale's brother Andy is introduced to his new job bagging and boxing books in the rare book
collection by his boss, Lou, who is actually Satan. When Andy opens one of the books, he's transformed into a demon. Across
the Marvel Universe, mystics are shocked by the realization that the tome of Zhered-Na has been opened. Dr. Strange tells
Topaz that a creature known as the Hellphyr has been loosed and will feed upon all the world's mystics. Strange locates Jennifer
Kale and gets her to help in exchange for letting her keep the book. When Jennifer arrives at Strange's house, she and Topaz
watch Strange resurrect Satana. We see a combination of T-shirts, halter tops, and jackets.
One day, shortly after RUN 18-FB. This story occurs after MYSARC:SG 1/2. The five remaining Runaways meet up at the observatory again. We're told that Gert and Nico have been in orphanages, Molly has been in the custody of the X-Corporation, Karolina has been placed with foster parents, and Chase has already run away, though he turns up for this meeting. None of them are happy with the situation. Chase announces that he has found out where Old Lace is being held. They go there, a warehouse in downtown LA, fight their way past robot guards, and free Old Lace. They also recover the Leapfrog. The Runaways decide not to return to their new homes. Instead they board the Leapfrog and go on the run.

The day after AHOS 5 (1-10). Anya gets out of school and meets up with Lynn, who has flowers for Jon because his absence
from school leads her to believe he's sick. They go to Jon's house and try to go inside, but Jon has his assassin weapons
sprawled out all over the floor, so he suggests going out instead. They go to a coffee shop, where Jon and Anya glare at each
other, while Lynn chats with Anya and flirts with Jon. An argument between two other guys in the coffee shop turns into an
armed attack. Anya leg sweeps the gunman, and the gunman starts firing at Anya, who ducks behind a table with Lynn. Green
grass and trees in New York.
ARANA: THE HEART OF THE SPIDER #6
The same day as AHOS 5 (11-22). Anya subdues the gunman, saving Jon's life. Protecting her identity, Anya makes it look like
Jon is the hero, which increases Lynn's crush. The police arrive and take Anya, Jon, and Lynn to the police station to file
statements. Jon privately tells Anya that since she saved his life, he will not attack her friends and relatives, but they are still
enemies. Vincent arrives and takes Jon home, and Gil arrives and checks up on Lynn and Anya. Meanwhile, Nina takes Miguel
home, from Webcorps' medical facility and calls Anya to ask her to keep watch over Miguel's place as Arana. Later that night,
Vincent, Amun, and a bunch of Wasp thugs break into Miguel's house and attack Miguel. Arana arrives, kicks butt, and escapes
with Miguel to Webcorps, where Arana explains to Miguel that Amun won't attack her in her personal life. Miguel is told to stay
at Webcorps until he is fully recovered, and Arana goes home. Full moon.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #1 (1-3)
One stormy night. Barney Franks, security guard at the children's psychiatric ward of Metro-General Hospital, takes an
unscheduled bathroom break. When he returns four minutes later, 13 of the 14 children he was watching over have been
violently murdered. The remaining child, Seth Walker, sits silently on the floor knotting a piece of string.
Saturday, September 20
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #7
The morning after CA&F 6. At "2:15 AM," with Navy Intelligence looking for him, Falcon decides to hole up at Leila's place,
in part to protect her. Cap wakes up from hallucinating that he and Wanda were together "last night," only to find Falcon in his
apartment. They discuss the anti-Cap situation before Cap goes to the U.N., where at "8:38 AM" we see Pym and Wanda (in
classic costume), preparing to listen to Stark's address, the very one that he gives in A 500, judging by the text that Tony
practices here - this is an indication that this issue occurs before A 500, but given the events in CA4 29, and the discrepancies in
Wanda's and Hank's attire here and in A 500, Tony's address must be postponed. Pym tells Cap that the bug is actually the
DNA of Modok. Green grass and trees in New Jersey.
RUNAWAYS SAGA - FB (21)
One day, shortly after RUN 18. Molly writes in her diary about her recent adventures with the Runaways.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #1 (4-6)
The day after NC3 1 (1-3). At the Xavier Institute, Scott gives Logan a box containing a new mask. Logan grudgingly puts it
on, then punches Scott out; this may be residual resentment about Scott's fairly recent decision to have the team wear costumes
in ASTONX3 1 (1-18) - Logan must have worn his Reload costume before now and the mask may be a replacement. Storm
briefs Kurt on the events and asks him to look into it, fearing that a mutant is behind the deaths of 13 human children. Kurt is a
member of Storm's XSE team, placing this segment after UX 444. Green trees and green falling leaves in New York and weather
warm enough for an evening outdoor swim for Ororo.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #8 (1-12:4)
Probably the same night as CA&F 7. It is a "week" before CA&F 9. In clamping down on the Rivas drug cartel in Columbia,
Cap discovers that their pilot is a Navy Seal working for Westbrook. Meanwhile ("10:24 PM"), Sam, who still has the goatee
from CA&F 7, shakes things up in Chinatown. Modok resurfaces and kills an AIM agent. At "11:12 PM," someone shoots at
Robbie Robertson as he stands in his bathroom.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #8 - FB (18:6)
The same night as CA&F 8 (1-12). Robbie thinks he sees something in his shattered bathroom mirror.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #8 (12:5)
The same night as CA&F 8-FB (18:6). Robbie goes to the window.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #8 - FB (18:7-19:1)
The same night as CA&F 8 (12:5). Robbie looks out the window. Leafy trees in Manhattan.
One day, long enough after WITCHES 1 for the Hellphyr to attack three psychics and a shaman. The Hellphyr attacks and
injures Glamour in her home. Using the Orb of Agamotto, Dr. Strange, Wong, Jennifer, Topaz, and Satana view the aftermath of
the Hellphyr's attack on Glamour. Strange explains why he has called the three women together, but, unimpressed with how the
three are working together, he leaves. The three women snipe at each other. Lilith, who has been watching the three witches
bickering, gives birth to a demon and sends it to attack the witches. Strange visits Glamour's hospital room and warns Illusion
that if he tries to interfere, he'll die. He leaves, commenting that he has "others to visit." Andy is met by two friends on the
street who convince him to provide some money so they can buy some stolen CDs. He offers to take them back to his apartment.
Wong spars with the two witches, and during the exercise, Satana accidentally injures Jennifer. Wong warns them they must
work together. Illusion arrives at his magic shop and comforts Lizzie, his cat. He lights a candle in an effort to track the
Hellphyr, but the spell conjures the Hellphyr, and it attacks and apparently kills him. Lou watches from the sidewalk outside the
shop. Strange arrives at Lilith's base, in time to witness Illusion's death, scried by Lilith. Strange warns Lilith to stay away from
the witches. She assures him she will, but cautions that other bad things can happen, and shows him an image of her demon
stalking the three witches, back at Strange's house.
The same night as WITCHES 2. Lilith's demon attacks the witches. During the battle, Jennifer accidentally injures Satana.
Lilith taunts Strange, while they watch the battle. The witches destroy Lilith's demon. Satana and Jennifer argue, and Jennifer
rushes out, leaving the house. Jennifer calls Andy and leaves a message saying she's on her way over. Andy tries to reach the
answering machine to stop her, but he inadvertently partially transforms into Hellphyr and destroys the answering phone. When
Andy wonders what's happening to him, Lou steps out of the shadows, offering answers. Strange arrives home, and compares
notes with Satana. Lou taunts Andy and watches through a window as Jennifer's cab arrives. Strange divines that Jennifer has
gone to Andy's apartment. Lou explains to Andy what's happening to him, while Andy gradually transforms into Hellphyr.
The same night as WITCHES 3. The Hellphyr attacks Jennifer in Andy's apartment. Jennifer thinks the Hellphyr has injured
Andy, but Lou reveals that the Hellphyr is Andy. Strange, Satana, and Topaz arrive, and while the three witches battle the
Hellphyr, Strange battles Lilith. Satan entices Satana to quit the team and join him, revealing that the book is inside the
Hellphyr, and the only way to get the book is to kill the Hellphyr. Satana refuses the offer and the witches destroy the Hellphyr
with Andy's encouragement, gaining possession of the book. Strange defeats Lilith and she teleports away. In Andy's
apartment, Strange insists that the witches give the book to him. They remind him of his promise to Jennifer, and they leave him,
taking the book with them.
Sunday, September 21
GRAVITY #3 (12-13:2)
Early one morning, several days before GRAV 3 (13-17). Greg goes out in costume, presumably to meet Greenwich Guardian.
He still has a wound on his forehead, but the bandage is gone. He ends up standing on a rooftop till sunrise.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #8 (13-21)
The morning after CA&F 8-FB (18-19). At "8:15 AM," Cap considers his encounter with Wanda and Pym (presumably the day
before) and thinks that Modok's mental powers could be causing his hallucinations. At "9:32 AM," Cap and Sam see the Anti-
Cap at the Wakandan Consulate to ask him about Westbrook's plan for the Modok DNA and the Rivas cover, to no avail. When
Cap and Sam go to Robbie for help at "10:36 AM," Robbie questions Cap about Sam's strange behavior, then Cap is called back
to the Consulate, where he witnesses the Anti-Cap's death, presumably from a reaction to the AVX substitute.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #12 (21:1)
One day. Alpha Flight members transported from the past reclaim their team name.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #1 (7-22)
Probably the night of the day after NC3 1 (4-6), as NC3 1 (1-3) is referred to as having occurred"that night," not "last night."
Kurt meets night nurse Christine Palmer, who introduces him to Barney. Barney begins to intimate that "true evil" is behind the
childrens' deaths, but they are interrupted by Dr. Childs, who objects to Kurt's presence and removes Barney. Kurt then goes to
visit Seth, who is making small figurines out of clay and has not spoken since the night his friends were killed. Kurt's
appearance frightens Seth, so he teleports away, ending up on the roof, where he discovers hoofprints burned into the surface,
leading across the roofs of the city and ending at the Dakota Building. There Kurt spots Dr. Childs hosting a party, which is
interrupted by Barney shouting from the street that Dr. Childs lied to him when he promised the children wouldn't be hurt. Dr.
Childs stares impassively down at Barney, who suddenly bursts into flames. Full moon.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #2 (1-6)
The same night as NC3 1 (7-22). Kurt teleports the burning Barney Franks into the Central Park Reservoir, but the magical
flames continue to burn underwater and Kurt watches in horror as Barney dies. He reports in to Storm, who suggests contacting
Dr. Strange, but Kurt says he'd like to try someone else first. Full moon.
Monday, September 22
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #29 (1-18)
One day, "a couple days" before CA4 30 (14-22). This segment must occur after PPTSS2 20. After defeating Mr. Hyde (who
escaped from the Raft), Cap runs into someone he thinks is Diamondback and the two are recruited by Nolan, a rogue SHIELD
agent impersonating Nick Fury, to rescue Senator Winslow (who's expected "to run for president in 2008") from the clutches of
Hydra in Florida. The heroes complete their mission. Spidey and Moon Knight (who apparently has returned to action) cameo.
The waning crescent moon is inconsistent with the full moon of CA4 30 (14-22).
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #2 (7-22)
Probably the day after NC3 2 (1-6). It is likely two days before NC3 3. In Limbo, Kurt asks Amanda Sefton's advice on the
case. She suggests that Seth may have an innate knowledge of magic and that the knots in his string may be locking spells,
keeping him from talking. That stormy night, Kurt visits Seth again and unties one of the knots in his string, enabling Seth to
talk. Seth begins to describe the night his friends died, saying that he felt hot inside and tied a knot to stop the feeling. Dr.
Childs bursts in, ordering Kurt out of his hospital and bringing a woman, who he claims is Seth's only living relative, to take
custody of him. On the way out of the hospital, Kurt is found by Nurse Palmer, who brings him to the morgue, where she shows
him that the bodies of all the children have burned down to ash.
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1 - FB (15-16)
One school day, probably very shortly before A 500 (1-8). The Scarlet Witch finds Billy Kaplan outside the grounds of
Avengers Mansion, nursing a wound inflicted by a bully at school. Wanda gives Billy a pep talk and tells him to stand up to the
bully. Falling autumn leaves in New York.
EXCALIBUR v3 #5
One day. X-Corp headquarters in Mumbai, Singapore, and Nairobi are simultaneously bombed, and as Xavier tries to get a sense
of those responsible, his telepathic link is violently broken. Haunted by visions of the destruction of Genosha, Shola unleashes
his power, which is detected by the U.S. military. Then Stripmine, Appraiser, and their band of trolls attack, looking to pillage
Genosha. The attack on X-Corp is referenced in XFOR2 2, which must occur after this. Xavier detects the presence of Mr.
Sinister, so this story must occur after WX2 28.
EXCALIBUR v3 #6
The same day as XCAL3 5. Their powers neutralized, Xavier, Magneto, Callisto, Wicked, Shola, and Karima are held captive by
the pillagers, who are in league with Unus. Freakshow remains free, chased by trolls. Shola's power returns and he subdues
trolls and Unus, but is blindsided by Black Beast. Xavier, Magneto, Callisto, and Wicked escape captivity.
EXCALIBUR v3 #7
The same night as XCAL3 6. While Black Beast attempts to tap into Karima's Omega Sentinel capabilities, Xavier leaves
Magneto to neutralize Wicked's nannites and he, Callisto, and Freakshow battle Black Beast, Stripmine, Appraiser, and the
trolls. The villains are defeated when Karima is freed. "Two hours later," Xavier and Magneto pledge to rebuild the Republic of
IRON MAN v3 #87 - FB (3:4-5:1)
One night, which must occur more than "a couple of days" before IM3 87 (3-21). Tony and Rumiko have dinner in Japan and
run into Clarence Ward. Rumiko finds an engagement ring in Tony's jacket pocket.
Tuesday, September 23: Autumnal Equinox
EXCALIBUR v3 #8 (1-16)
Perhaps the day after XCAL3 7. Seeking to rebuild Genosha, Xavier tries to enlist help. Unus and his gang turn him down, but
the jailed Magistrates, Black Beast, Stripmine, Appraiser, and trolls agree to work in exchange for parole. The rebuilding begins,
and Xavier aims to find every living person still on the island.
AVENGERS #500 (1-8)
One morning, probably very shortly after YAS 1-FB (15-16) and within a month after S-H4 5-FB. This segment occurs after S-
H4 5-FB and must occur after SM:BBRAO 1 (17-22) and WM3 5-FB. According to Jen's dialog in S-H3 11, this segment occurs after S-H3 9 (16-21). Jack of Hearts shows up at Avengers Embassy and blows up the place. Ant-Man is killed but the other Avengers present survive. Green grass and trees in Manhattan. The embassy's computer notes that Jack's file is "inactive as of May 5th of this year," suggesting that Jack perished before May 5; this may not be right, but it is the same year as A3 76.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #29 (19-22)
The morning after CA4 29 (1-18) and the same morning as A 500 (1-8). Winslow and Nolan discuss the rescue, which was a set-
up. Cap and the Diamondback LMD return to New York, where Cap answers a "priority white alert" from the Avengers and the
Diamondback LMD goes home to report to her boss, the Red Skull. We see green trees in New York and folks wearing
everything from shorts to jackets.
AVENGERS #500 (9-37)
The same morning as CA4 29 (19-22). It is "a while" after S-H3 9 (3-14). While addressing the U.N., Tony Stark verbally
attacks the Latverian delegate, snaps at Yellowjacket, and tells Wanda (back in current costume) he feels drunk before they get a
"code white" alert from the Avengers. Cap shows up at the burning embassy, as does the Vision, who rams his quinjet into the
building's remains and attacks his teammates with Ultron robots that emerge from pods that eject from his body. The Avengers
beat the robots, but Wasp and Captain Britain are injured and hospitalized, and She-Hulk goes savage and tears the Vision apart.
The Falcon, for some reason, does not appear in the high-tech costume he wore in CA&F 6-8 and he is clean shaven. Green trees
The same day as A 500 (9-37). Tony is asked to resign as Secretary of Defense, then responds to the Avengers emergency and
knocks out She-Hulk, who is turned over to SHIELD custody. The Vision's parts are sent to Stark Enterprises. Captain Britain
and Wasp are hospitalized and Pym pours out his feelings. After getting no show of support from his teammates on the U.N.
debacle, Iron Man leaves in a huff. Cap, Falcon, and Hawkeye return to the Embassy to find a horde of Avengers and other
heroes. Green grass and trees in Manhattan.
AVENGERS #502 (1-3)
The same day as A 501. The assembled Avengers try to make sense of the chaos. Jocasta's presence in her original body is
unexplained. Warbird is back in her classic costume.
IRON MAN v3 #86 - FB (3-4)
The same day as A 502 (1-3). CNN reports on Stark's U.N. scene and Stark's being relieved of his duties as Secretary of State.
Rumiko tries in vain to contact Tony from Japan.
AVENGERS #502 (4-22)
The CNN report continues, noting that the UN has disavowed the Avengers. The assembled Avengers are attacked by a fleet of
Kree warriors and Hawkeye sacrifices himself to destroy one of the attacking alien ships. The Kree retreat and Dr. Strange
AVENGERS #503 (4-5, 7-15)
The same day as A 502 (4-22). Dr. Strange explains to the Avengers that Wanda is behind all the chaos and when she attacks,
Strange is forced to shut her mind down.
EXCALIBUR v3 #8 (17-20)
The same day as A 503 (7-15). Thanks to Broadband, Magneto catches a "live" news television report on the destruction of
"Avengers Mansion" (no longer "Avengers Embassy" since the UN disavowed the Avengers in A 502) and "casualties among
earth's mightiest heroes." According to a statement by Xavier in XCAL3 11, it is "barely a night" since Xavier left to find
survivors on Genosha. The waning crescent moon is consistent with that shown in CA4 29.
AVENGERS #503 (16-30:5)
The same day as XCAL3 8 (17-20). It is a "long time" after A 503-FB (6) - long in terms of an unattended corpse hanging
around. This segment occurs before S-H3 11 and must occur before CA5 1-FB (9:5) and shortly before CA&F 13. It is "three
months" before A:FINALE. This story must occur before CA&F 9, although that would mean the Falcon appears in A 500-503
in his old costume between appearances in CA&F in his new costume; it also means that he's a wanted man in A 500-503. The
Beast is wearing his Morrison-era outfit, so this story should occur before such stories as ROGUE3 2, XU 6/2, and C&DP 6 (17-
21). The Quicksilver who appears in this story arc is a creation of Wanda; the same might be true of the Spider-Woman who
appears here, as it cannot be Jessica Drew, unless Julia Carpenter has donned the classic togs she never wore before. The
Avengers find and battle Wanda, who is defeated by Dr. Strange when he is forced to shut her mind down. Fury finds the
deceased Agatha Harkness. Then Magneto (who as far as the Avengers know should be a dead mass murderer) just shows up and
takes her. Green trees in Manhattan.
EXCALIBUR v3 #9 - FB
The same day as A 503 (16-30). Magneto flies away with Wanda as Cap looks on. Green grass and tress in Manhattan.
AVENGERS #503 (30:6-31)
The same day as XCAL3 9-FB. This segment occurs before GSSW 1, must occur before NC3 3, and probably occurs before
BW4 1 (1-11) and S-H4 13-FB (3:4~16:1). It is "a while" before M/TU3 6. According to Tom Brevoort, this story occurs
before M/KSM 11. After Magneto and Wanda leave, the Avengers disperse.
EXCALIBUR v3 #8 (21-23)
The same day as A 503 (30-31). Magneto teleports back to Genosha with Wanda in tow.
GLA #1 - FB (16:2-22:3)
The same night as A 503 (30-31). It must be much more than just "a couple weeks" before GLA 1-FB (22:4). The Great Lakes
Avengers see and hear news coverage of the deaths of Ant-Man, Hawkeye, and Vision and the disbanding of the Avengers
(which must be a premature and erroneous report, as the disbanding doesn't occur until A:FINALE). Mr. Immortal picks up the
mantle and has his team go out on patrol. They encounter Maelstrom, who kills Dinah Soar and takes off with a large device.
Deathurge comes to claim the slain Dinah Soar and Mr. Immortal is distraught. Full moon.
YOUNG AVENGERS #2 - FB (10:1)
One rainy night, probably very shortly after A 503 (30-31). Young Kang travels to the present only to find that "the Avengers
had disbanded" - at this time, the disbanding could not have been official, since this flashback must occur before A:FINALE.
Wednesday, September 24
YOUNG AVENGERS #2 - FB (10:2-11)
Perhaps the day after YA 2-FB (10:1). This flashback must occur before YAS 1-FB (17-18) and A:FINALE. When he fails to
contact former Avengers (including Tony Stark, who appears here), Young Kang sneaks into Stark Industries and discovers the
Vision's torn-up body, whose processing system and data files he downloads. Vision must be here before HERC 1-FB (7-9).
IRON MAN v3 #86
The day after IM3 86-FB (3-4). It is probably less than "several months" after IM3 86-FB (17-19) - it may just be several days
after - and probably just two years, not "three years," after IM3 86-FB (1-2). A fake Iron Man slays the Stark-Fujikawa board of
directors and attacks Happy and Pepper.
IRON MAN v3 #87 (1-2)
The same day as IM3 86. Pepper and Happy are informed about the murder of the board.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #30 (1-13)
One day. Cap and the Diamondback LMD foil Batroc and his gang at a Yankees game, where we see folks in light clothing and
jackets. The Red Skull gets an armor from Nolan and refuses to pay. That night, the Diamondback LMD sleeps with Steve.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #3
One afternoon and night, likely two days after NC3 2 (7-22). Beast is wearing his Reload costume (perhaps for the first time), so
this story must occur after A 503 (30-31). Storm interrupts a fencing match between Kurt and Kitty, chastising him for taking a
"time-out" on Seth's case. Kurt tells her that he's had the Beast do some detective work and discovered that all fourteen children
were orphans, their care sponsored by residents of the Dakota Building. That night, Kurt visits Seth again to find that he has
almost finished sculpting fourteen clay figurines he calls "jars." They are interrupted by Christine's cry that Seth's aunt is
attacking Dr. Childs outside. Kurt intervenes and at Dr. Childs' urging, teleports the woman into a nearby church, where, to his
astonishment, thirteen demons are exorcized from her body. Kurt takes her to Limbo, and he and Amanda discover that Dr.
Childs put the demons into the woman's body, forcing her to pretend to be Seth's aunt, but the demons were too strong and
forced her to attack the doctor. Amanda reveals that Brad and Roger have heard rumors that most of Satan's inner circle have
been freed from hell with the exception of one, the demon Pazuzu, who remains locked somewhere between hell and earth. Kurt
begins to put the pieces together and realizes that the demons were freed by bursting through the bodies and souls of the children,
except Seth, who used his innate magical knowledge to "lock" Pazuzu inside himself. Meanwhile, at the hospital, Dr. Childs
enters Seth's room, dagger in hand, ready to cut Pazuzu free.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #4 - FB
The same night as NC3 3. A lightning storm has begun. Kurt learns from Christine that Dr. Childs has taken Seth from the
hospital and he asks to borrow her phone. Meanwhile, Dr. Childs brings Seth to the Dakota Building, explaining that he's
magically disrupted Kurt's teleporting powers and thrown protective wards around the building. They arrive and enter a room
with thirteen smiling patrons and thirteen demons trapped in a magic circle. Dr. Childs tells Seth that his pact with the devil,
freeing the fourteen demons in exchange for fourteen years of servitude to them, is not complete until all fourteen demons have
been freed and all fourteen children have died. Suddenly, Kurt reveals himself as one of the patrons, disguised by his image-
inducer. He punches Dr. Childs, trying to keep him from cutting Seth, but all Dr. Childs needs to cut is the knot in Seth's string,
which he does. Suddenly Seth's stomach starts bulging and Kitty leaps out of the crowd as well. She phases Seth, allowing the
demon Pazuzu to pass through him. Pazuzu is freed, but since Seth's blood was not spilled, Dr. Childs' pact is incomplete and
Pazuzu turns on him, ripping him to shreds as the circle binding the other demons dissolves. At that moment, Amanda teleports
in with Nurse Palmer holding Seth's fourteen clay statues. Combining her spells with the magic Seth imbued into the statues,
Amanda is able to trap all fourteen demons inside them, and as the X-Men collect the fleeing patrons, the demons vanish in a
burst of flame. Green trees. Full moon.
Thursday, September 25
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #4
The day after NC3 4-FB. Kurt tells Storm how he got into the warded building (Kitty simply phased him in) and they discuss the
fallout of the case. The patrons are in jail, Kurt has regained his ability to teleport, Amanda has the fourteen clay statues lined up
on her hearth, and Seth is now living at the Xavier Institute, studying under Emma Frost. Storm congratulates Kurt on a job well
done. Green trees and green falling leaves.
IRON MAN v3 #87 (3-21)
The day after IM3 87 (1-2). This segment must occur more than "a couple of days" after IM3 87-FB (3-5). It is "three months"
after IM3 87-FB (9-13). A 500 is referred to as having occurred "the other day." Pepper and Happy are concerned about Stark
as a senate investigating committee reviews the murder of the Stark-Fujikawa board. Rumiko and friend Oshima arrive at Tony's
place and are killed by the fake Iron Man. Tony emerges from a self-examination, discovers Rumiko, and is attacked by the fake
Iron Man. Green grass and trees in New York.
IRON MAN v3 #88
The same day as IM3 87. Tony dons armor and battles the fake Iron Man. The media and the military gather at the battle scene,
the Stark estate in Virginia, where we see green grass.
IRON MAN v3 #89 (1-12:4)
The same day as IM3 88. It is "one week" before IM3 89 (12-14). The fake Iron Man, revealed to be Clarence Ward, is
defeated. Pepper activates a failsafe that disarms Tony and the military, thereby averting a showdown. After Tony leaves, the
military commander kills Ward. Green trees in Virginia. "It's not even Halloween."
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1 - FB (17-19:3)
One day, after YA 2-FB (10-11). Billy avoids the bully at school, but when he sees him picking on another student, Billy stands
up to him and exhibits his powers for the first time. After almost killing the bully, Billy heads to Avengers Mansion to seek out
Wanda for help, but he finds the building destroyed - the fact that this is a surprise to him indicates that it must be shortly after A
503, and that means that young Kang must have arrived from the future immediately after A 503, because as Billy stands at the
ruins, he is approached by young Kang as Iron Lad.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #30 (14-22)
The day after CA4 30 (1-13). It is "a couple days" after CA4 29 (1-18). I have placed Anaconda here after her stint in Six Pack
in C&DP 7-8. Fury orders Nolan to investigate the goings-on at Hydra Island. The Red Skull gets the Diamondback LMD to
pour poison in Steve's drink on their date tonight, but before Cap can drink it, the two are attacked and captured by the Serpent
Society. Full moon.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #31 (1-2)
The same night as CA4 30 (14-22). Cap and the Diamondback LMD are chained up by the Serpent Society.
Friday, September 26
GLA #2 - FB (2:2-4)
One day, probably a few days after GLA 1-FB (16-22). It must be much more than just "a couple weeks" before GLA 2. In rainy
Milwaukee, the GLA attend Dinah Soar's funeral and Mr. Immortal fights Deathurge.
GRAVITY #3 (13:3-17)
One day, several days after GRAV 3 (12-13). Greg has been skipping classes hasn't been speaking much to people for some
time. Finally Lauren comes to his dorm room and makes him go with her to a boat parade on the East River. Greg's bruises have
faded. We see long sleeves, an outdoor boating event, and green trees in New York.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #31 (3-22)
The day ("16 hours") after CA4 31 (1-2). Cap infers that the events of A 500-503 occur in the past "week." Cap's enemies
gather to bid on the captured hero, but Cap and the Diamondback LMD free themselves and defeat the Serpent Society. Nick
Fury apprehends Nolan and his followers. Spidey arrives at Cap's apartment seeking help, but swings away when he sees Cap
isn't there. Cap deals with the destruction of his apartment, assists Paladin on a mission behind the scenes, and heads over to
Diamondback's place for dinner. Just before he arrives, the Red Skull kills the Diamondback LMD because she refuses to follow
up on the plan to kill Cap.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v4 #32
The same night as CA4 31 (3-22). This story occurs before M/TU3 6, "months" before CA5 1, and probably occurs before
CA&F 9. The Skull attacks Cap, but is defeated by the resurrected "Diamondback," who is revealed to be an LMD. Nick Fury
and SHIELD arrive an explain the entire situation, which turns out to have been a plot by Nolan, with the Red Skull as a pawn.
Cap is reunited with the real Diamondback. The Diamondback LMD is next seen in stasis in the SHIELD hellicarrier in FOES 4.
Saturday, September 27
EXCALIBUR v3 #9
One day. The title of this story is "Saturday Night Fever," so I suppose it's a Saturday. It is long enough after XCAL3 8 (21-23)
for Xavier's charges to have built some habitats, to have continued to convert the ruins of Hammer Bay to arable land, and for
Karima to note to Magneto, "We haven't seen you in so long, we were starting to worry." Magneto maintains vigil over Wanda
and wishes to summon Xavier, who is still with Callisto up-country, where they discover some child survivors. Karima fetches
Hub, who teleports to Xavier and returns with Callisto and the children. Black Beast leads the Magistrates on a mission to
retrieve a cache of supplies and encounter a clawed creature, who decimates the Magistrates. Black Beast escapes and makes his
way back to Callisto and company before collapsing.
EXCALIBUR v3 #10
The same day as XCAL3 9. It is "only days" after Xavier left between pages 16 and 17 of XCAL3 8. Hub teleports to Xavier's
house to get a medical kit for Black Beast, but Magneto has encased the place in a force field and orders Hub to fetch Xavier. As
Wicked watches over McCoy, Callisto and Karima investigate the Magistrates' slaughter and encounter the Sugar Man and

about Erik's fetching of Wanda, but Xavier agrees to help.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #9
One day. This story must occur after A 503 (16-31), and so likely after CA4 32. It must be more than "eight years" after CA&F
9-FB. At "7:43 AM," the Navy gives the anti-Cap a burial at sea, but the Falcon retrieves the anti-Cap from the water and
revives him from a death-like paralysis at "9:12 AM" to set him against Westbrook. Modok kills the sixth AIM agent "in the last
week," since CA&F 8 (1-12). Cap believes that the Falcon's erratic behavior of late is, like his own hallucinations, the result of
Wanda's de-stabilization. That evening, Cap and SHIELD agent Morales attend a yacht party held by Westbrook, then they
infiltrate the Rivas Compound in New Jersey at "8:41 PM." Green trees in the New York area.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #10
The same night as CA&F 9, between "8:42 PM" and "9:10 PM." Cap encounters Modok at the Rivas Compound and discovers
that Damocles Rivas (the Saint) is trapped in Modok's body. Falcon shakes down a senator who's in bed with the Rivas Cartel.
The anti-Cap confronts Westbrook but can't bring himself to kill him. Falcon arrives, subdues Westbrook, and fires the anti-
Cap, and all three are attacked by the Saint, who now has Modok's mind. Green grass and trees in New Jersey.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #11
The same night as CA&F 10. At "9:26 PM," Cap and Morales investigate Westbrook's sunken yacht while Modok (in the
Saint's body) messes with the minds of Falcon and the Anti-Cap. At "10:02 PM," Cap and Morales return to the Rivas
Compound, where SHIELD is investigating. At "10:08 PM," they coax the Saint (in Modok's body) to the compound, the anti-
Cap kills the Saint's body, and at "10:14 PM," Morales injects Modok with the virus, but to no avail. Struggling inside Modok,
the suicidal Saint teleports away and Cap follows him to Singapore, where the Hulk is.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #12
The same night as CA&F 11. Morales refers to CA&F 9 and 10 as having occurred "last week," but this can't be right. Knowing
that the death of Modok will release an airborne genetic mutation that will threaten the planet, Cap tries to keep Hulk from killing
the Saint. A mind blast from Modok causes the Banner personality in the Hulk to emerge so that a way to neutralize the virus
can be found. Banner links up with Hank Pym and Reed Richards to hastily concoct an experimental compound that Cap feels
compelled to administer even after Modok is placed in stasis. Banner reverts to Savage Hulk. The Falcon has Redwing destroy
the compound and insists that a new batch be prepared and tested. Full moon.

Monday, September 29
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #13
Early one morning, shortly after CA&F 12. Sam's remark about starting "a quest to find the Scarlet Witch" is probably an
indication that this story occurs shortly after A 503 (30-31). At "2:49 AM," the anti-Cap dispatches a Dr. Trevian. At "2:52
AM," the Falcon is shacked up with Morales when Cap arrives to inquire about Sam's recent behavior. After Steve and Sam call
their partnership quits, Leila's boyfriend shows up with a gun and ends up shooting Cap. Cap is rushed into the hospital at "3:08
AM" and presumably dies in the E.R. At "3:42 AM (?)," the anti-Cap bombs the Baud Olan Embassy and kills its occupants.
When Anti-Cap returns to Chelsea at "3:24 AM," Falcon meets him. Green trees in New York. Full moon.

resembling death, Cap regains consciousness and he and Morales head at "3:24 AM" to the Wakandan Consulate, where they
learn of the killing of the Baud Olan royal family "a few minutes ago." Morales detects Falcon's flying rig in Baud Olan and she
and Cap arrive there "a couple hours" later. There they encounter Admiral Westbrook, who offers Cap a deal. Cap refuses and
resolves to find Falcon and the anti-Cap on his own.

mentions Juggernaut's "bust-up with Spider-Man last year" (sometime before UX 411) and Juggernaut's tossing Logan through a
car "two years back"; these events may not match up to any published story. Scott gives him the job of gym teacher, with his
first class scheduled for "tomorrow" and a "semester's lesson plans" due "by next Monday" (an indication that it may still be
fairly early in the semester).

Webcorps for some training and a meeting. Webcorps' new mission is to stop the Sisterhood of the Wasp from hosting a crime
boss conference over the next few days. Apparently the first crime organization to arrive is the Clan Fei, a Chinese Triad gang
led by Nataku Fei and his daughter Chi Fei (AKA Lady Chi, who has poison touch powers). Lady Chi has refused the
Sisterhood's offer of protection while in NYC, but Vincent tells his assassin Amun to watch over her from afar while she tours
the city. Miguel and Arana attack them, with Miguel capturing the elder Fei and defeating Amun when the assassin tries to
interfere. Arana takes down Lady Chi.

in his brown costume, and after he suffers a heart attack in the field, Havok proclaims him "out for a few weeks minimum"
(however, the vestiges of the heart attack must fade away, along with memories of what happened, at the conclusion of this story
line). She goes on a mission with Havok, Polaris, Iceman, and Juggernaut to find a presumed reality-warping mutant girl in
Mississippi. Rogue calms the girl and absorbs her powers. The X-Men take the girl back to Westchester while Rogue stays in
Mississippi to find the girl's family. Rogue encounters Campbell St. Ange, a man who knew Rogue's mother and is immune
from Rogue's powers. Green grass and trees and blowing leaves at Westchester.

The same day as DD2 74-FB (14). Daredevil battles the Jester at the bank.. After getting his butt kicked, the Jester shows
renewed strength and throws Daredevil out the bank windows. Daredevil realizes that something is different about the Jester and
races back in to fight him. Most of the hostages escape while the two of them battle, but the Jester grabs Lynn's daughter and
pulls her back into the bank vault. The Jester soon vomits up a demonic imp, the source of his enhanced strength. Daredevil
can't see the demon, which starts to attack Lynn's daughter before Daredevil scares it away. Lynn's daughter is traumatized by

One day, "three weeks" before XU2 8 (6-7). Warren notes to himself, "When was the last time I was actually in an honest-to-

and Matt changes into his Daredevil costume and chases after him. As Lawrence starts to vomit up the demon, he shoots himself
in the head, killing himself and the demon. Matt changes back into civilian clothes and returns to the church basement. He says
it's over and that he simply wanted to give all of them closure, and to explain why he does the things he does. Having said his

Anya to discuss the next crime lord coming into town to meet with the Sisterhood of the Wasp. Next on their list to capture is
Felix Jade, a Mexican crime lord. Anya immediately recognizes the picture of Jade from her dream; this is the man supposedly
responsible for the death of her mother. That evening, Jade arrives in NYC and meets up with the Sisterhood of the Wasp. As
Vincent and Amun escort him around town, they are being followed by CIA and FBI, but Vincent and Amun elude the Feds. At
Webcorps, Miguel has put off the attempt to capture Jade for a couple of days, but he catches Anya sneaking out to try and take
out Jade on her own. They have an argument and Miguel casts a web spell, pinning her to the wall. She threatens to break out
and go after Jade and Miguel knows he can't truly stop her, so he calls up Ted and Nina and says they're going to go ahead and
try and take down Jade tonight. Bare and leafy trees. "Snow" early in the day does not accumulate in New York - it may be
topical. Apparently there is no school today even though it's a weekday.

The same night as AHOS 8. Arana calls upon the power of the Hunter, which she has been told to never let fully out, and she

One day, shortly after FOUR 10 (1-8). It is "one month" after FOUR 9 (20-22). Sue tells Alicia that she's had a feeling of dread
"for the last month. Since it started warming up." The warmth may be an illusion. Alicia shows Sue a sculpture she made of the

older than a toddler) to Reed, who appears to be in his temp job. Ben is shown at his construction job. Psycho-Man causes a

since "Franklin's birthday party" in FOUR 1 (1-6). it is revealed that Reed did not try to regain the FF's fortune so that the FF
could assume normal lives, but Sue convinces Reed that their lives as adventurers are meant to be. Sue suggests that the FF
broker a deal with the mayor to get the home back and that Reed invent a cure for acne to build up their fortune - this could be
an indication that this story occurs before FF 512 (1-10), or the statement may reflect Sue's unawareness that Reed has already
done it or Sue's meaning an idea like his cure for acne. Full moon.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #5 (1-18)
One evening. The events of X 150 (1-29) are noted by the mayor as having occurred "last year," but if the centennial celebration
in NC3 6 actually does occur on "October 24," then X 150 would have occurred earlier this year; perhaps the reference is to a
fiscal year that runs from July through June - one of the mayor's big concerns about Magneto's destruction would have been the
impact on the city's annual budget and so he might frame the event temporally in that context. Kurt and Christine and Logan and
Ororo wait for a subway train while on a double date in New York when an army of rats runs by, followed by an out-of-control
train. They all teleport aboard to help. Kurt and Christine check on the conductor, who died of fright. Logan makes sure that
the passengers are all right and Ororo stops the train by short-circuiting the third rail with lightning. Kurt discovers a ghost on
the tracks and it slimes him. When it disappears, Logan and Ororo decide to go home and call Cyclops for a ride, while Kurt
goes to Christine's place for a shower. At her apartment, Christine and Kurt start to have a discussion about their relationship
when Ororo calls from the Blackbird, telling him to go to the Mayor's office to talk about the ghosts. After leaving the Mayor's

occasionally looks around the city for people she knew from her childhood. She sneaks into a familiar building and realizes that
she was experimented upon as a child there. She escapes from guards there with the help of Grigor Ivanovich Pchelintsov, who
reveals that he was one of the scientists who experimented on her and 26 other Black Widow agents years ago. All of them were
put through a psycho-chemical regimen which implanted fake memories into their minds, and which gave them headaches and
vomiting if they try to remember the truth. Grigor tells her about the field station in the Ural Mountains where they worked on
the Medusagen chemical. Natasha steals a jeep and forces Grigor to guide her to the field station. In Langley, Virginia, Max and
Kestrel try to get ICT Monitoring to cooperate with them but get nowhere. On their boat, McMasters and Vassily discuss who's
fault it is that the Black Widow hasn't been caught yet; Vassily blames Max and Kestrel and McMasters blames the Russians.

concludes that the station is just a lure for old agents and that the real facility is inside a nearby mountain. Meanwhile, Max and
Kestrel head back to New Mexico, to talk to the local sheriff near where they found the Widow's car. He says that some people
saw a strange car stopping along the side of the road near where they found the Widow's car and that they got a partial license
plate number. That night, McMasters' boat is docked at Freeport, Bahamas for some reloading. A mysterious assassin tries to get
onto the boat to kill McMasters, but Vassily kills the assassin. Back in the Urals, Natasha has waited for nightfall, but has now
slipped into the real Red Room facility inside a nearby mountain. She sees that this place is a full-fledged operational laboratory.
Breaking into the office of the woman who runs the place, she meets Lyudmila Kudrin, former head of biotech at the Red Room,
and another of the scientists who worked on the Widow program years ago. Natasha gets many answers from her. Lyudmila
explains that she had all of the Widow's genetic structure altered to allow for fast healing, slow aging, skin toughness, and
resistance to illness. Natasha also learns that she can't have babies; if she gets pregnant, her body automatically has a
miscarriage. She learns that Stacy was taking Medusagen pills to lower her immune and repair functions and allow her fetus to
survive. Natasha also learns that the Red Room sold most of their biotech to Gynacon. In New Mexico, Max and Kestrel finally

Constrictor, Anaconda, Solo, and Hammer) to take down Cable. I have Anaconda here after CA4 31 and Constrictor here after
S-H3 9-FB (22:1), following a recovery from the injuries he sustained in that title; the theory behind the quick recovery - he
found a superhuman healer and used some of his settlement to pay for his restoration to health.

in Oregon, where they meet with Nick Fury. Fury takes them to a nearby SHIELD hospital, where Phil Dexter lies unconscious,
recovering from several gunshot wounds. Natasha asks where Sally Anne is, but Fury says there was no one else there when they
found Phil. Fury says he believes North is behind the attack but refuses to aid her more beyond that. He walks away and
Natasha states she always feels like punching Nick Fury but never does. Lyudmila explains that the reason for that is that Fury
uses a "pheromonal lock and key" that prevents attack by any Black Widow operative. That evening, Fury calls and gives
Natasha a hint about where Max and Kestrel are staying.

interviews Inger Rinefeld, a young woman who impresses Nina with her frank attitude. Nina also notices that Inger has
experience handling predatory animals. Nina says she'll let Inger know if she has the job tomorrow. Inger decides to secretly
follow Nina around, thinking she's hiding something. As sunset approaches, Nina checks herself into the quarantine section of
the zoo. Inger follows a couple of nosy night custodians into the quarantined area and sees Nina in her wolf form attack them
and scare them away. Inger uses a tranquilizer gun on the wolf and gets the wolf back into her cage. Full moon.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #10 (5-11)
One night, "two weeks" after ASMU2 10 (1-3). Because JJJ is noted as a Spidey-hater, this segment probably occurs before
M/KSM 8 (16-21). Peter gets a photo to the Bugle, where Crane has a front-page Spidey-bashing story lined up on a mock-up
dated "Tuesday, October 8, 2005" - the day of the week and the month may not be topical. Crane discusses his dislike for
costumed heroes. On his way to press, Crane encounters the Rhino on a rampage and is saved by Spidey; Rhino may still be on
the loose following the battle with Spidey in M/KSM 7 (3:3). Spidey defeats Rhino, who is taken away; my next appearance for
Rhino is at Ryker's in M/KSM 10 (1-10), at least a "week" after this. Crane changes his mind about super-heroes.
MACHINE TEEN #3
The same night as MTEEN 2 (3-23). It is "a long time" after MTEEN 1-FB. Isaacs tells Adam that he's a robot and that his
seizures are caused by a programming glitch that occurs whenever Adam sees evidence that he's not a normal boy. Upset, Adam
storms out of the house and is ambushed by Radcliffe's men. After defeating his attackers, a shot-up Adam stumbles to the house
of his friend J.T., who reveals his knowledge of Adam's being a robot. J.T. tells Adam that Radcliffe must be after Isaacs, and
indeed, Radcliffe shows up at Isaacs' house. Green grass and trees.
MACHINE TEEN #4
The same night as MTEEN 3. It is "about a year" after MTEEN 4-FB. Adam and J.T. go to Adam's house to find his dad is
missing and the place is wrecked. Elsewhere, Dr. Isaacs is tortured by one of Radcliffe's goons. Radcliffe appears with two
henchmen and makes some cryptic comments. At the Aaronson residence, Adam asks J.T. some questions. J.T. finds a hard
drive and Adam tries to download it. They're attacked by one of Radcliffe's goons, but they escape. J.T.'s house is being
watched by more of Radcliffe's people, so they go to the football field instead. Adam calls Carly to meet them. At the football
field, Adam and J.T. have a heart-to-heart, then Carly shows up. She's been fooled by Officer Michaels who accompanies her.
Michaels reveals that he works for Radcliffe and captures Adam, J.T., and Carly.
MACHINE TEEN #5 (1-20)
The same night as MTEEN 4. It is "one year" before MTEEN 5 (21-22). With Isaacs, Carly, and J.T. locked up, Radcliffe's men
try to extract the data they need from Adam's data core. Adam tricks Radcliffe into believing that he's been reprogrammed to
turn on Isaacs, but it's a ruse to free the captives. When Radcliffe encounters Adam and company, Adam threatens to destroy
himself and the needed data if Radcliffe doesn't allow the others to go free. Adam has Isaacs secretly remove the data core and
take it with him as he, Carly, and J.T. get free. Adam then blows himself up, destroying Radcliffe and his men as well. Isaacs is
forced to move again and start a new life elsewhere.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #2
One night, "a few weeks" before DX 7. This story occurs between XX 46 and DX 1. Bishop reports to his new beat in
Manhattan's District X and helps Dzemal, a Bosnian mutant, get out of a gang run by Filthy Frankie Zapruder. We see people
wearing jackets. Full moon.
DISTRICT X #10 - FB
The same night as XU2 2. Dzemal brings the money he got from Bishop home to his father, but his father refuses it.
Wednesday, October 29
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #11/2 (8)
The morning after AAF2 11/2 (1-7). It is "over a month" before AAF2 12/2. Nina reverts to normal and Inger lets her out of her
cage. Nina hires Inger.
BULLSEYE: GREATEST HITS #1
One day. Agent Hoskins and NSA/CIA agent Marcus Baldry enter a maximum security prison for seven former NSA operatives
who went rogue and had to be taken down. En route to Bullseye's cell Baldry explains that he intends to use a good cop/bad cop
scenario on the prisoner, getting Bullseye to talk about his past to soften him up and eventually get him to tell where the nukes
are. Bullseye seems to respond to this approach and tells a story of his childhood in the Bronx, while the warden receives a call
that the missiles have been found, but the plutonium is missing.
BULLSEYE: GREATEST HITS #2
The same day as B:GH 1. The police find the warheads cut up and placed on a playground, where kids have been playing on it
for "at least a week." Baldry and Hoskins ask Bullseye about his baseball career.
BULLSEYE: GREATEST HITS #3
The same day as B:GH 2. Some of the plutonium is found in a railcar in Mexico City, along with the corpse of the nuclear
engineer who assisted Bullseye. Baldry and Hoskins ask Bullseye about an old CIA assignment he had in Nicaragua.
BULLSEYE: GREATEST HITS #4
The same day as B:GH 3. Bullseye tells the agents how he came to New York, donned a costume, and became a notorious super-
villain in the media. When he taunts them about the warheads, Hoskins loses his cool and has to go talk with the warden.
Bullseye tells Baldry a story about how the NSA actually set the Kingpin up in New York in order to keep super-powered beings
in check, then he admits he made the whole thing up. Baldry is defeated at his own game and the warden agress to let Hoskins
into Bullseye's cell to use harsher methods to get the location of the plutonium out of him.
BULLSEYE: GREATEST HITS #5
The same day as B:GH 4. Hoskins and Baldry enter Bullseye's cell, with Horace backing them up. Meanwhile, the warden gets
a call that, contrary to previous theory, Bullseye does not have a tumor, but rather some scarring from an old surgery and
therefore must have faked the seizure that got him captured. Hoskins begins working him over and Bullseye keeps antagonizing
him. With cold dread the feds realize that Hoskins has knocked one of Bullseye's teeth out. Bullseye kills Hoskins with a tooth
between the eyes and when Horace tries to shoot him, Bullseye uses his manacles to deflect the shot right back through the
cyborg's cybernetic eye. The prison staff sets the self destruct and tries to evacuate, but they are assassinated by men in suits
who intend to buy the plutonium from Bullseye. Bullseye tells Baldry that a lot of the family history he gave was bull. Bullseye
lets Baldry run away, but the agent gets trapped in containment foam meant to keep the prisoners from escaping. Using Horace's
handprint, Bullseye tracks down his bedridden father, who is one of the other prisoners. He tells his father that mom's dead as he
rolls his bed to the glass door of a fireproof cell. Bullseye gets inside the cell and watches his father burn with the rest of the
installation. After the fire burns down, Bullseye makes his way out to the snipers outside and completes the sale of the remaining
plutonium for $3 million. Then he drives away smiling.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #11 (1-19:5)
One day, "three days" after C&DP 10. Modok probably appears here after CA&F 12. Irene and Fury talk about Cable. To
protect his physical body, Nathan traps the Six Pack in his mind. Deadpool obtains a techno-organic embryo from AIM, then he
gets the Fixer to agree to try to figure out a way to merge the embryo with Nathan's body to save Cable. Bare trees in London
and apparently nice weather in Florida. Waxing half moon.
Thursday, October 30
DISTRICT X #1 - FB
One day. While under the influence of a mutant siren in District X, New York cop Gus Kucharsky shoots two people dead and
wounds himself with a shot to the head. To help Gus, his partner, Izzy Ortega covers up the incident. Green trees and light
clothing in New York.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #11 (19:6-22)
The day after C&DP 11 (1-19). As Fixer and Deadpool work with the embryo, Agent X attacks.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #12 (1-21:3)
The same day as C&DP 11 (19-22). It is "one week" after C&DP 12 (21-22). It must be more than just "a month" before C&DP
13 and "a few months" before C&DP 18 and C&DP 20 (2-13). Deadpool defeats Agent X and, with Weasel and the Fixer, gets
the techno-organic embryo to Cable. Cable merges with the embryo, which restores Nathan with a new techno-organic arm and
frees the Six Pack. We see a waxing half moon but the whole moon is visible.
One night, sometime after the "May 24" noted on a newspaper clipping. One of Jamie Madrox's duplicates, dying from a
stabbing he must have received the day before, catches a taxi back to Mutant Town, where Rahne Sinclair is visiting Jamie, who
is now a private investigator. As Rahne and Jamie get reacquainted, another duplicate arrives, dressed as a Buddhist Monk.
Jamie says he needs to reabsorb this duplicate to learn what all the dupe has learned in his travels. He asks Rahne to go to a local
bar, where she meets Guido Carosella, who explains what Jamie is up to. The wounded Jamie duplicate enters the bar and
collapses on the floor. Guido yells for the real Jamie, who arrives and looks at his dying duplicate. Jamie reabsorbs the dying
duplicate and is knocked out from the pain. When he awakens in his apartment, he tells Rahne and Guido that the limited
memories he got seemed to involve Chicago and a pretty woman. He creates a new duplicate of himself, whom he asks to stay
with Rahne and Strong Guy while he goes off to investigate in Chicago. Jamie refers to Rahne as a teacher at Xavier's, so this
story must occur sometime after NM2 10. Rahne is under 21, not old enough to drink legally. Rahne notes that Jamie has quit
his job at X-Corp in Paris, placing this story sometime after X 131. Rahne notes that Guido and Lila Cheney were an item, but
they apparently have broken up. Green, leafy trees. It is warm enough for outdoor swimming in Chicago. Waxing crescent
Friday, October 31: Halloween
DISTRICT X #1
The day after DX 1-FB. Izzy visits Gus in the hospital and continues the cover-up. Izzy returns to the precinct and meets
Bishop, who's been called in to check out rumors of an impending mutant gang war in District X.
DISTRICT X #2
The same day as DX 1. As Internal Affairs investigates the Gus shooting, Bishop goes out on patrol with Izzy and during a
fracas with a bug-hatching mutant, Bishop displays his mutant power. Local crime boss Shaky Kaufman finds out from Jazz
about a new street drug called "Toad Juice" and the mutant who secretes it, who is controlled by rival crimelord, Frankie
Zapruder. That night, Izzy goes home to his mutant wife. Short-sleeve shorts worn by New Yorkers
FANTASTIC FOUR #517
One evening. It is a day on which the Today show broadcast a story on the disbanding of the Avengers; Ben mentions that "th'
lucky ones are in the hospital," but that he still doesn't know exactly what happened; this is an indication that this story occurs
during the "three months" between A 503 (16-31) and A:FINALE, and before the FF appear with the Avengers, including a
healed Wasp, in M/KSM 11. Fantastic Four, Inc. is working its way out of the red with revenues from trademarks and patents.
Mysterious obelisks appear around Manhattan and the island is levitated. "It is Halloween" - we see trick or treaters, but for
some reason the trees are still leafy and green. Valeria is a toddler and appears to be about 18 months old here, and that fits in
nicely with calendar placement.
FANTASTIC FOUR #518
The same night as FF 517. Reed stops Manhattan from levitating and the rest of the team discover the culprit, an alien named
Zius who seeks to eject the island into the sun because it contains something that can thwart the cloaking device he's been using
to shield planets from Galactus. That something turns out to be Sue, who surrenders herself to save Manhattan.
FANTASTIC FOUR #519
The same night as FF 518. According to FF 525, it is "a few days" before FF 523. Reed uses a new device to remove Sue's
powers, which forces Zius to restore Manhattan and leave. Reed explains that the device actually caused Sue and Johnny to
switch powers. Before Reed can switch the powers back, Galactus shows up to claim the being with Sue's invisibility powers -
FANTASTIC FOUR #520
The same night as FF 519. I've placed this story before PPTSS2 21 (1-15). Galactus leaves for space with Johnny, then
dispatches him to battle a challenger named Karragan. Johnny freaks himself out when he accidentally takes Karragan apart with
Sue's power, boosted by the power cosmic. Meanwhile, the rest of the FF regroup and head for space with Quasar to pursue
Galactus and Johnny.
MADROX #2 (1-6)
The night of the day after MADROX 1. Jamie arrives in Chicago, just in time to save an old friend named Stringer, a Chicago
Tribune reporter and mind-reading mutant, from being beaten up by a group of thugs. Jamie spends the night at Stringer's place
and asks to use the newspaper database in the morning. The waning crescent moon is inconsistent with the waxing crescent
moon shown in MADROX 2 (7-22).
Saturday, November 1
FANTASTIC FOUR #521
Probably the day after FF 520. As the FF and Quasar near Galactus' ship, Johnny tries in vain to find a green but uninhabited
planet for Galactus to eat. Johnny gets Galactus' attention by deducing why he needs heralds.
FANTASTIC FOUR #522
The same day as FF 521. Johnny recounts Galactus' origin. When Quasar and the FF arrive, Johnny hatches a plan to stop
Galactus from eating a planet. With the help of a gizmo whipped up by Reed, Johnny unleashes his power cosmic at Galactus,
causing both Johnny and Galactus to revert to human.
DISTRICT X #3
The day after DX 2. Kaufman finds and seizes the toad boy and Zapruder is furious. Absolon Mercator visits Gus in the hospital
to let him know that he witnessed the shooting. That night, Jazz pushes Toad Juice at a nightclub and encounters Mr. Mercator.
A non-mutant woman suffers a disfiguring death after taking the Toad Juice. There is no sign of there being school for Izzy's
kids, but Izzy's wife is a teacher who is grading assignments, so it's probably a weekend day during the school year. It's also a
day with mail delivery, so it's likely a Saturday.
MADROX #2 (7-22)
The day after MADROX 2 (1-6). It is "a couple days" after MADROX 1 and "three days" after the stabbing of the first Jamie
duplicate. A newspaper headline reads, "Magneto Alive Again?!?," which may mean that this segment occurs the day after A
503, in which Magneto made a public appearance. Jamie and Stringer head to the archives of the Tribune and look for the May
24th newspaper headline which Jamie remembers from absorbing the dying duplicate's memories. Stringer recognizes the girl
pictured in the article as Sheila Desoto, fiancee of millionaire industrialist Edward Vance, who has alleged ties to organized
crime. Jamie decides to head to Vance's mansion. Back in New York, mysterious assassin Clay is notified that Madrox is back
in Chicago and agrees to hunt him down. At Jamie's detective agency, a woman named Carol Campbell wants the duplicate
Jamie to investigate her quadriplegic mutant husband, who she believes is cheating on her via astral projection. In Chicago,
Madrox comes upon an outdoor pool outside the Vance mansion, and finds Desoto swimming in it. Sheila gets out and kisses
Jamie. Back in New York, Clay shoots the duplicate Jamie and the real Jamie in Chicago cries out in pain and falls into the pool.
Green grass and trees in Chicago. The waxing crescent moon is inconsistent with the waning crescent moon shown in
MADROX 2 (1-6).
The same night as MADROX 2 (7-22). The Jamie duplicate in New York survived the bullet, which merely grazed his head.
Guido tries to nab the assassin Clay, but a disturbed neighbor blows Guido out the building and Clay gets away. Rahne, on a
stakeout outside the Campbell apartment, sees Ned Campbell's astral projection leave and she follows. In Chicago, Jamie
resurfaces from the Vance pool and faints. Jamie is tossed into a closet in Vance's mansion and Sheila pleads innocence about
his presence. Jamie frees himself and overhears Vance speaking on the phone in Russian to someone. Jamie is caught
eavesdropping by Clay, who leads Jamie into the room to see Vance. When Jamie pleads ignorance about knowing what Vance
was talking about, an evil duplicate of Vance's emerges and says that Jamie knows Russian. Bishop appears in a police car with
Izzy, who is in uniform, so this story must occur after DX 2. Green, leafy trees. Waxing crescent moon.
MADROX #4 - FB (4-18)
The same night as MADROX 3. It is "a few hours" before MADROX 4. Because of Izzy's uniform in DX 3, Bishop must
appear here before DX 4. Jamie confronts his evil duplicate, who he realizes he created when his head hit the bottom of the pool.
Jamie realizes this duplicate is his self-loathing manifesting itself. Sheila admits to Vance that she married the duplicate Jamie
some time back. Vance tells Clay to give the evil duplicate a gun, to kill Jamie but Jamie remembers the memories of his
Buddhist monk duplicate and reabsorbs the evil duplicate without having to touch him. He escapes with Sheila and they drive
away. Jamie tells her of the death of her husband and Shiela concludes the killer was Clay. Shiela explains that Vance, feeling
threatened by rumors of a mystery mutant who's taking down all of Chicago's crime-lords, believed Jamie was this mystery
mutant and sought to have him killed. Jamie suspects Stringer being the mystery mutant, so he arranges to meet with Stringer at
a newspaper warehouse. In New York, Rahne, follows Ned's astral projection and sees that Ned's having an affair with a man.
Ned spots Rahne and his astral projection form battles her. Rahne claws the projection, causing Ned to have a seizure in his bed.
Jamie confronts Stringer, who denies he's the mutant trying to take over the crime gangs in Chicago. Just then, a flare gun sets
the warehouse up in flames and Jamie and Stringer get separated as they try to flee. Green, leafy trees. Waxing crescent moon.
The same night as MADROX 4-FB. As Jamie searches for Stringer, a piece of burning ceiling falls down on him and the impact
creates another duplicate, who flees, leaving Jamie trapped in the debris. Stringer almost makes it to the exit, when he is
confronted by Sheila, who turns into a monster and slays Stringer. Clay appears and it becomes clear these two are the ones
taking over the crime gangs. Sheila tells Clay to go hunt down Jamie and finish him off. Green, leafy trees. Waxing crescent
MADROX #5 (1-8)
The same night as MADROX 4. Rahne, Guido, and Jamie's duplicate are back at Jamie's office when Carol Campbell calls to
tell them that Ned passed away in his sleep. Rahne blames herself. In Chicago, Clay finds Jamie trapped under the fallen debris.
Clay admits he killed Jamie's duplicate on Sheila's orders because the duplicate figured out her plans to control the crime gangs.
The duplicate who abandoned the building returns, whacks Clay over the head, and frees Jamie. Jamie discovers that Clay is
capable of duplicating himself as well. The floor collapses around them, separating Jamie from Clay. Jamie flees the building,
carrying Stringer, who dies in his arms. Green, leafy trees. Waxing crescent moon.
GRAVITY #4 (16-23)
One night. Greg goes with Frog to a party, where Greg sees Lauren with another guy and leaves. Outside, the Greenwich
Guardian calls for Gravity again. Frog reveals the Guardian was soundly defeated by the Jester on the NYU campus a couple
years ago. He hadn't been seen since, until recently. Guardian reveals he heard from Black Death. They're meeting him at an
abandoned warehouse. While talking, the Guardian puts on the device and reveals it's actually a graviton trap. He suspends
Gravity and reveals himself to be Black Death. Green trees in New York.
GRAVITY #5 (4-19)
The same night as GRAV 4 (16-23). It is the "year" after GRAV 5-FB. Gravity awakens from a reverie still captive of Black
Death and now in the middle of the NYU campus. Black Death goes on a tirade while he starts tearing up parts of the campus,
using the graviton trap to harness Gravity's powers against his will. Gravity eventually reasserts control and destroys the trap.
He and Black Death fight and Gravity wins. Black Death then melts away before Gravity's eyes. After seeing that Gravity
needed no help, Spider-Man makes his presence known, then he leaves for a date, presumably with M.J. Green grass and trees in
New York. Full moon.
Sunday, November 2
GRAVITY #5 (20-21)
Probably the morning after GRAV 5 (4-19). As Quasar flies by, Lauren is with a guy at the bakery when she spots Greg. He
tells her he's going back home to re-evaluate his plans. She tells him to stay and not give up. Quasar may appear here during the
day or two he's in New York between FF 522 and 523. Green trees in New York.
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #12 (21:3)
One "weekend" day. Zuzha and Major Mapleleaf spend time with family.
DISTRICT X #4
The day after DX 3. Bishop and Izzy investigate the nightclub death and learn that they must find the girl's boyfriend, who stole
a bag of Toad Juice tablets from Jazz. Izzy learns he's getting a promotion while Gus is let go from the force. Mercator rescues
the toad boy from Kaufman's compound and cures him of his mutation. That night, Bishop and Izzy track the Toad Juice thief to
a party. Izzy switches from uniform to plain clothes here. It is "thirty years" after DX 4-FB.
DISTRICT X #5 (1-3)
The same day as DX 4. Bishop and Izzy are too late; a bunch of non-mutant partygoers dies from taking the Toad Juice. Green
grass and shrubs in New York
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12/2 - FB (2:2)
One day. Inger points to a criminal who is walking out of a door onto the street. Inger has come up with the idea of tracking
down wanted criminals to ensure that Nina doesn't kill an innocent person.
MADROX #5 (9-21)
The day after MADROX 5 (1-8). This segment occurs before XF3 1-FB (14). In New York, Jamie's duplicate, Rahne, and
Guido are in the mutant bar with Carol Campbell, helping her cope with the death of her husband. There Carol confronts the
man with who Ned had an affair and she sets him and herself on fire. The duplicate puts them out with a fire extinguisher and
they call 911. In Chicago, Jamie returns to Vance's place and breaks in on a scene in which Sheila is trying to console Vance,
saying Jamie must have used a mutant power to force Jamie into marrying her. Clay stands in the background. Jamie confronts
them and, after explaining the truth about Sheila, dupes her into confirming the truth. Vance kills Sheila and Clay and lets Jamie
live. Jamie returns to New York on a bus. Late that night, Jamie arrives back in his office and meets back up with his duplicate,
Rahne, and Guido. Nobody wants to talk about the disasters their first cases were, but Guido reveals they've renamed Jamie's
detective agency "X-Factor Investigations." Green, leafy trees. Waxing crescent moon.
Monday, November 3
FANTASTIC FOUR #523
Perhaps a day or two after FF 522. According to FF 525, it is "a few days" after FF 519 and "a little while" before FF 525 (12-
21). According to the FF Handbook, this story occurs before SSBRB 2-FB (13-16). It is a school day (Sister Mary Catherine
may be teaching an after-school class given that we see kids out of school earlier in the day). Quasar attunes himself to sense the
location of Galactus' essence and takes off. The FF and Alicia teach Galen something about humanity and he exiles himself to
another dimension to hide from the essence and save worlds. Then Reed tries to switch Sue's and Johnny's powers back, but the
attempt strips the FF of their powers and gives them to four other people. It is snowing in New York, where we see both bare
and green trees and people skating outdoors; this is inconsistent with the Halloween setting of FF 517.
FANTASTIC FOUR #524
The same day as FF 523. The FF's powers go bouncing from person to person in Manhattan. Reed devises gauntlets that allow
his team to regain their powers by touching the people who have them. Reed gives fake gauntlets to Ben and plans to absorb the
Thing's power himself to spare Ben further time in monstrous form. Ben catches on and accepts the Thing's power. The team
returns home and joyfully responds to a trouble alarm from the Microverse. We see green shrubbery and people wearing coats in
DISTRICT X #5 (4-17)
The day after DX 5 (1-3). It is "three days" before DX 7-FB. Zapruder bombs Kaufman's club. Bishop and Izzy investigate and
encounter Mercator, who they fight and barely escape with their lives. That evening, Bishop has dinner at Izzy's.
Tuesday, November 4
DISTRICT X #5 (18-23)
The day after DX 5 (4-17). A violent gang war breaks out between Zapruder's and Kaufman's crews. Bishop and Izzy race to
the scene, but Izzy has forgotten his gun at home, where Mercator shows up and fails to stop Izzy's son from accidentally
shooting his sister. Green trees and light clothing in New York.
DISTRICT X #6
The same day as DX 5 (18-23). Mercator heals Izzy's daughter but flees when Izzy arrives and believes Mercator attacked his
family. Bishop and the police arrest Zapruder, Kaufman, and their crews, then they go after Mercator, who's determined to
destroy District X. Mercator is defeated and jailed. Izzy's son confesses to the shooting of his sister.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #12 (21:4-22)
One day, "one week" after C&DP 12 (1-21). Nick Fury visits Cable at Nathan's South Pacific island, Providence. Nathan is
receiving thousands of applications for immigration to the island.

One day. Ken and Sally notice that Minnie is getting smaller.
Wednesday, November 5
FANTASTIC FOUR #525 (1-11)
One day, probably a couple of days after FF 524. No sooner do the FF return from the Microverse than they are lured into a trap
by Diablo, who insists that Reed let him use the FF's time machine to right some wrongs during the Spanish Inquisition. Diablo
gives Reed "two days" to consider and threatens to turn the city to gold if he refuses.
GRAVITY #5 (22:1-22:2)
One day. Greg is berated by Prof. Busha, but is going to class again, even though he's no longer sitting with Lauren.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #1 (1-12)
One day, shortly after BW4 6 (9-22). This segment occurs during the "week" before BW5 1 (13-23). In Texas, a man named
Mikey urges Jason Williams to exact revenge on the Black Widow for crippling him and killing Jason's dad. At the White
House, Nick Fury is called on the carpet for the "retired" Black Widow's assassination of McMasters. Presumably that night in
Havana, Natasha (who's "nearly forty") seeks refuge with Yelena Belova (who's "not yet thirty"). Fury visits Daredevil in New
York and tells him that Natasha will top the most wanted list "as of tomorrow." Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
Thursday, November 6
FANTASTIC FOUR #525 (12-21)
The day after FF 525 (1-11). It is "a little while" after FF 523. It is a mail delivery day. Reed works on a way to track Diablo
and Sue subs for the cranky Johnny in handling the FF's business affairs with Jian. The FF experience unusual dreams that Reed
determines are one another's.

AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12/2 (1:1-1:2)

him never to tell this story to anyone ever again.
ELEKTRA v2 #35
One night. It is supposed to be "three years to the day" after DD 181, but while this may indeed be the anniversary of Elektra's
"death," it must be much more than three years after. Elektra and Matt encounter each other at her grave site.
Friday, November 7
FANTASTIC FOUR #526
The day after FF 525 (12-21). Reed determines that the dream fever the FF and Alicia are experiencing is something they
brought back with them from the Microverse. Afflicted with the fever himself, Diablo uses the Philosopher's Stone to eliminate
it. Reed takes the stone and uses it to cure himself and his friends, but Diablo uses the capture of the stone as a way to access the
Baxter Building, which he's turned to stone. Diablo mistakes an inter-dimensional transporter for the FF's time machine and
inadvertently sends himself to another world. The Baxter Building reverts to normal and Sue talks to Johnny about his dreams.
This story probably occurs before M/KSM 11 and HERC 1-FB (7-9).
GRAVITY #5 (22:3)
One day. Greg walks by some of the damage on the NYU campus from his fight with Black Death in GRAV 5 (4-19). Green
tree and jacket and hat weather in New York.
GENERATION M #5 - FB (6:3)
One day. Sally takes Minnie in for a check-up.
Saturday, November 8
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #7 (4:2-21)
One day, "two weeks" after M/KSM 7 (4:1). It is "three weeks" after M/KSM 6 (4-22) and is probably more than just "four
weeks and five days" after M/KSM 1 (16-23). Given that this storyline culminates in the end of Mac Gargan's career as the
Scorpion, this segment must occur after SECWAR 5. Early one morning, Black Cat tells Spidey that Fortunato bought the
Venom symbiote for his son Angelo. That day, Angelo receives the symbiote. That night, Peter and M.J. attend Peter's high
school reunion (thus I place this segment on a Saturday), where Angelo as Venom attacks Peter. Peter is noted as being in his
"twenties," but that can't be right. Full moon.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #8 (1-16:2)
The same night as M/KSM 7 (4-21). It is "two days" before M/KSM 8 (22-23). Peter still has his mechanical web-shooters here,
another clue that places M/KSM 1-12 before PPTSS2 15-20. Spidey fights the new Venom and Angelo dies after the symbiote
abandons him. During the battle, an innocent man dressed as Spidey is killed.

Sunday, November 9
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #8 (16:5-21)
Probably the day after M/KSM 8 (1-16). Because JJJ is a Spidey fan after this segment, I place this segment after ASMU2 10 (5-
11). Peter dupes Jameson into thinking that his son John is Spider-Man and Jameson gives Peter half a million dollars for the
information. Peter gives the money to a struggling waitress.
THOR v2 #82 (15:2-23)
One day, "many days" after T2 82 (14-15). This segment probably occurs after S-H3 8 (18-22). Thor and company, joined by
Valkyrie and the one-armed Sif, battle Durok and Fenris Wolf. Durok and Valkyrie fall and Beta Ray Bill - probably here after
S-H3 8 - enters the fray.
THOR v2 #83
The same day as T2 82 (15-23). Beta Ray Bill slays Fenris Wolf and Loki's hordes flee. Thor appoints Bill king of the
Asgardians while he goes to Hildstalf to find Odin's wisdom. There Thor encounters the Odin Force in the form of a ghost boy
who has Thor pluck out his eyes to find wisdom. After Thor discovers that Ragnarok is a cycle, the Odin Power tells him he
must die and be reborn.
THOR v2 #84
The same day as T 83. Thor regains the Odinforce and defies Those Who Sit Above in Shadow. He defeats Mangog and Loki
and destroys the Asgard that Loki magically rebuilt for himself. Then Thor declares that he will bring Ragnarok.
THOR v2 #85 (1-9)

FANTASTIC FOUR #537 - FB (5-6)
The same day as T2 85 (10-11). The laws of time in hell may be different, and although Doom's time there may seem to be
short, months may have passed since he was trapped there in FF 537-FB (1-4). Ragnarok rends tears in the fabric of hell, from
which Doom is able to see the Asgardians' battle, which includes Loki, Balder, and Volstagg. Doom leaps into a tear in the

The same day as SSBRB 1-FB (14:7). The battle continues to rage.
THOR v2 #85 (12:3-24)
The same day as T3 1 (4). This segment occurs before HERC 1-FB (7-9) and ARES 1 (12-22). Thor removes Beta Ray Bill from the scene and then destroys the tapestry thread that causes the Ragnarok cycle. In doing so, he makes the destruction of Asgard permanent. The remaining Norse gods die, except for Thor, who appears to transcend corporeal form and enters a great sleep.
THOR v3 #1 (5)
The same day as T2 85 (12-24). Thor joins Don Blake in the void.
FANTASTIC FOUR #537 - FB (7-8:2)
The same day as T2 85 (12-24). Doom sees Thor's hammer in the dimensional rift and tries to reach it but fails. The
dimensional rift must be a tear in time; both Doom and the hammer likely are deposited back on earth months after this point,
with Doom's return in FF 537-FB (8:3-8:5) occurring exactly a year after FF 537-FB (1-4).
Monday, November 10
One day, probably right after T2 85 (12-24). This event occurs "two years" before T3 4 (3-23). Hogun, Fandral, and Volstagg show up at a refugee camp in Africa as mortal guards with new identities and no memories of their former lives.
CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #14 - FB (8-21:4)
One day, "six weeks" after CA&F 14-FB (2-7), during which time Cap has searched for Falcon and the anti-Cap to no avail.
Leila's finished her expose on Westbrook and Congress will hold hearings "in a few weeks." Joe Robertson gives Cap a lead that
takes him to Paris, where he finds and fights the anti-Cap. Upon being defeated, the anti-Cap kills himself with a speeding
subway train. Redwing leads Cap to what he hopes will be Sam.

CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON v2 #14 (21:5-23)
The same night as CA&F 14 (1). I've placed this segment before A:FINALE. At the cemetery at "4:21 AM" local time, Cap
finds the Falcon's costume. A Falcon mini-series was supposed to have followed this issue, but it has not been published; Sam is
back in A:FINALE, which presumably follows that unpublished series. Green grass and trees and rain in Paris.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #8 (22-23)
One night, "two days" after M/KSM 8 (1-16). The man behind the abduction of Aunt May and the reward for Spidey's identity

One night. At a restaurant, Nina tells her waiter her steak is not rare as she ordered.
Tuesday, November 11
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #9
The day after M/KSM 8 (22-23). It may be more than just a "month" after M/KSM 6 (4-22) and "a few weeks" after M/KSM 5.
Osborn has "been locked up for two or three months" since PULSE 5 (22). This story must occur before BEYOND 1. Peter
meets the mystery man and learns it's Mac Gargan, the Scorpion. Gargan tells Peter he's known his secret identity for "coming
up on a year this Christmas." Gargan tells Peter about a large, long-standing super-villain program involving a corporate cabal
and tells him Osborn's knowledge of it puts him in danger at prison. Gargan asks Peter to break Osborn out of prison "tomorrow
at midnight," before Doc Ock has a chance to kill him "this weekend." A student shows up at Peter's for help with a paper "due
tomorrow." Gargan returns to his place, only to encounter the Venom symbiote. Bare trees in New York. People are wearing
jackets and it's cold enough to see people's breaths, but a bistro is still serving patrons lunch outdoors.
MYSTIQUE #20 (7-8)
One day, "more than three weeks" after MYS 20 (1-6). Xavier has Forge and Mystique abandon a mission in Tokyo to come to
GRAVITY #5 (22:4)
One day. Greg plays video games with Frog.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #1 (13-23)
One day during the "week" after BW5 1 (1-12). After a visit with a psychiatrist, Martin Ferris is given a proposition by Kestrel.
Yelena, who hasn't even fired a gun in "years," sends Natasha on a mission to go back to Florida to free up the black market
supply of medical supplies for Cuban prostitutes suffering from AIDS. Presumably that night, Natasha and a squad of Cuban
special forces raids the black market warehouse. There she finds a shipment of Gynacon Medusagen and discovers that it came
from a place near Miami Beach. The black market guys are killed and the special forces head back to Cuba with the medicine,
while Natasha elects to remain in Florida "for a few days" to investigate. Meanwhile, Kestrel and Ferris are on the lookout for
Black Widow. Green grass and autumn and bare trees.
Wednesday, November 12

and "three, four weeks" before BW5 (18-22). Natasha breaks into the doctor's house and gets the doctor to confess to operating
on Sally Anne.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #10 (1-10)
The rainy night of the day after M/KSM 9. Felicia suggests that it's been "three months" since M/KSM 1 (1-15) but it may be
only two months (three months inclusive). Despite M.J.'s objections, Spidey and Black Cat go to Ryker's to break Osborn out of
prison, where the Rhino has been for at least a "week," perhaps following his capture in ASMU2 10 (5-11). I presume that
Rhino is released from Ryker's after this and appears next in ASMU2 13, a story in which it appears he has no outstanding
Thursday, November 13
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #10 (11-23)
The early morning after M/KSM 10 (1-10). At "ninety seconds" after midnight, Spidey and Black Cat spring Osborn and the
three escape, but the heroes are double-crossed by Osborn and ambushed by the Sinister Twelve, including Scorpion/Venom.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #11
The same early morning as M/KSM 10 (11-23). According to Tom Brevoort, this story is intended to occur after A 503; the
Wasp must appear here after her recovery from Disassembled, and since the FF are also here, this story must occur after FF 526
because of the Thing's remarks in FF 517. The Wasp is probably here shortly before PPTSS2 20, following the travel abroad
mentioned in A:FINALE. As the villains gang up on Spidey, the Goblin goes off to kill M.J. Cap, Iron Man, Yellowjacket,
Wasp, FF, and Daredevil (here after DD2 60) show up and relieve Spidey, who hastens to save M.J. After getting waylaid by
Scorpion/Venom, Spidey encounters the Goblin with the unconscious M.J. on a bridge. Full moon.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #12 (1-18)
The same rainy morning as M/KSM 11. It is a "few months" after M/KSM 1 and "two entire months" after M/KSM 5. Spidey
and the Goblin fight, M.J. shoots Norman, and Spidey saves M.J. from a fall off the bridge. Doc Ock attacks Norman and they
both fall off the bridge. Spidey deduces where Aunt May is and digs her out of a grave, where Norman has kept her alive and
anesthetized. After sunrise, Captain America fishes the surviving Doc Ock out of the river; Norman is not found. Spidey visits
Black Cat in the hospital.
GRAVITY #5 (22:5)
One day. Greg visits the still-hospitalized woman he saved in GRAV 1.

casino. Then, Forge and Mystique encounter Fantomex, who tells them that Shortpack has gone after Steinbeck. Mystique runs
off and Xavier has Forge cut the scrambler that shields Mystique from detection by her enemies. Shortpack is held captive by
Shepard and the Quiet Man, who reveals himself to be Steinbeck. Waning crescent moon.

FRANKLIN RICHARDS: HAPPY FRANKSGIVING! #1
One day, sometime before FR:MM 1/4. Reed and Sue decide to give Franklin a present because he's been so well-behaved lately. Although Franklin was hoping for a dog, it turns out to be a hamster and Franklin's disappointed. "Later" in his lab, Reed talks with the mayor about his "instant reconstructor." HERBIE finds Franklin about to use Reed's transmutanator on the hamster to turn him into dog, but the settings aren't right and the hamster grows to enormous size. HERBIE captures the monster hamster in a force field and sends it to the roof where it won't damage Reed's lab. By the time HERBIE and Franklin reach the roof, the hamster has burst out of the force field and is now wreaking havoc through the city. HERBIE steals the instant reconstructor out from under Reed's nose, zaps the hamster wheel and provides it, skyscraper-size, to the monster hamster, who happily starts running in it. "Soon" Reed comes up to the roof looking for his instant reconstructor only to find HERBIE and Franklin playing with the returned-to-normal-size hamster.
The day after MYS 20 (11-22). Xavier has Forge follow up on finding Shortpack in Monte Carlo. In Cannes, Fantomex learns
of Mystique's mission for Shepard and in return for his silence he has Mystique go to the Virgin Islands to steal a discarded
Spider-Man costume from a man who bought it online. To ensure Fantomex's silence, Mystique stabs him, infects him with a
techno-organic virus, and dumps him into the ocean. With her scrambler now shut off, Mystique is found by U.S. authorities.
The same night as MYS 21. Steinbeck reveals his motives to Shortpack. Mystique escapes the authorities and is rescued by
Shepard, who orders her to go to Genosha and kill Xavier "tonight" or Shortpack will be killed. Mystique teleports to Genosha
and, posing as Prudence, wakes Xavier. The full moon conflicts with the waning crescent moon shown in MYS 20 (11-22).
The same night as MYS 22. Since Logan is in his Reload costume here, this story must occur after ASTONX3 1 (18:3-18:5).
Mystique stabs and wounds Xavier before being driven away by Forge. Raven returns to her New York pad at supersonic speed
and encounters Logan and Rogue. A battle and explosion ensues and Mystique escapes and gets to a Brooklyn hospital, where
she is detected by the Quiet Man and Shepard.
MYSTIQUE #24 (1-17)
The same night as MYS 23. It is "days" before MYS 24 (18-22). This segment must occur before WX:DOFN 1-FB (15:3-
15:4). Shepard shows up at the hospital but is sandbagged by Mystique and a recovered Fantomex. After severing Shepard's left
hand, Mystique teleports to the Quiet Man in Niagara Falls. After a battle, Quiet Man blows up and Mystique and Shortpack are
separated. Shepard escapes from Fantomex. Green grass and trees in New York.
Saturday, November 15
FRANKLIN RICHARDS: HAPPY FRANKSGIVING! #1/2
One day. Franklin is frustrated because he's not sure whether a girl named Katie likes him or not. He realizes that he'd be able
to figure out what she thinks about him if he borrows his dad's telepathy helmet, which he finds in the lab. As soon as Franklin
turns the helmet on, he starts receiving an image of himself tied to a chair. Worried about "who's got it in for" him, he checks
out other people in the building. Sue enjoys a cup of coffee in the kitchen and is thinking about the beach. Reed's in the lab
thinking of equations. Ben's watching TV and thinking about steak and root beer. Johnny's playing video games and listening
to tunes. Franklin is even more frustrated and starts picking up images of him duct taped to a bed. HERBIE tries to calm him
down, but then Franklin gets an image of himself strapped to the outside of a rocket and being blasted towards the moon.
Franklin continues concentrating until he discovers that his captor is HERBIE. Franklin's upset but HERBIE reminds him that
his prime directive is to protect him and he can't override his programming. Franklin then remembers that he wanted to read
Katie's thoughts in the first place and dashes off to find her.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #2 (8:4-9:1)
One day during the "week and a half" between BW5 2 (3-7) and BW5 2 (12-17). Natasha beats up a thug in a back alley.
One day, "quite some time" after UX 412 (4-24). Sabretooth tells Logan, "can't I go anywhere without runnin' into you, runt?"
(an indication that this story occurs shortly after W3 19). Juggernaut now appears in a new gray/yellow costume, which places
this story after ROGUE 1 and XU2 4 (5-12). Led by Exodus and Black Tom, and including Sabretooth - fresh from WX2 28
(19-21) - and the extra-dimensional Nocturne, the new Brotherhood of Evil Mutants strikes in Philadelphia. The X-Men,
without the Juggernaut and the still blind Gambit, show up and battle the villains, who retreat. The X-Men return to the Institute,
where we see green grass and trees. Sammy's mother thinks about going out with Cain and Annie leaves the Institute, fearing for
the safety of her son. The Brotherhood plan to attack the Institute and Tom introduces his secret weapon, Juggernaut. Green
grass and trees and autumn leaves in Philadelphia.
X-MEN v2 #162
The same day as X 161. It is "a few months" after EX3 48. Xorn (revealed as the brother of the original Xorn, he must have
been hanging around Xavier's BTS for a while now) tells Alex and Emma that Magneto was not responsible for the destruction
of Manhattan, but rather someone else in their midst who he has yet to determine. Sammy discovers Juggernaut hanging with the
Brotherhood and when the villains attack the boy, Cain retaliates. The X-Men arrive on the scene and are defeated by the
Brotherhood. Green trees at Westchester. Full moon.
X-MEN v2 #163
The same night as X 162. It must be more than "a few weeks" after EX3 48. As Annie leaves, Carter detects that Sammy's dead.
Gambit, Rogue, Northstar, and Mindee defend the Institute against an attack by the Brotherhood. Havok's team, joined by
Nocturne, regroup. Green, leafy trees at Westchester.
X-MEN v2 #164
The same night as X 163. This story occurs before A4 20. The X-Men battle the Brotherhood, and when a cook from Xavier's is
killed, Nocturne phases into Black Tom and Xorn decides to suck the villains into his black hole mind. Mindee mind-wipes the
Brotherhood and Juggernaut volunteers to get sucked along with the villains so he can look after Nocturne. After getting rid of
the threat, Xorn leaves to meditate on his action. Annie and Carter drive away with an evil, invisible passenger. Sabretooth (in
his second costume) does not get sucked into the black hole; rather, Logan carves him up. I would say that this leaves Creed free
to pop up next in SABRETOOTH2 1. The events of this issue are referenced in NX 7. Green, leafy trees at Westchester.

Korbinite scientist named Ven spots an image of what appears to be Ashta in distant space heading towards his planet. He is
afraid to tell anyone at first, thinking they'll believe him insane. He goes home and tells his girlfriend Sala and she convinces
him to tell the head scientists. Ven goes reports his findings to his superiors, who agree to look over his work. They take their
findings to the head scientists, who hold a council meeting about Ven's work. The military barges in and says that if it is Ashta
approaching, they're taking over, as it's a military threat now.
GRAVITY #5 (23:1-23:3)
One day. Greg does a computer search and finds his name.
UNCANNY X-MEN #450

Room exercise. The X-Men are called to investigate a series of mutant-related murders in District X. The daughter of a mob
boss named Parisi appears to have been kidnaped by the killer. The team has barely hours to find the killer and return Jade Parisi
to her father before the resulting media frenzy brings mutant-human relations to a boiling point. Following the evidence to a
nightclub, the X-Men discover that the killer is X-23, a 15-year-old girl with adamantium claws like Logan's. Green trees and
light clothing in Manhattan.
UNCANNY X-MEN #451

One school day. Franklin digs out Reed's "speed enhancer" from the lab. He explains to HERBIE that he "lost a race in gym
class today - to a girl" and he doesn't want the incident to be repeated. He tries the harness on and starts racing around his room
a few times before darting out the door. Franklin races across the continent, but he can't slow down because the speed enhancer
goes on the fritz. After "less than two minutes," he races back to the Baxter Building, running circles around HERBIE as he tries
to explain his dilemma. HERBIE captures Franklin in a force field and removes the harness. Franklin decides to go to bed early
because he's so tired.

and Rachel attracts the attention of Selene. "Meanwhile," the other X-Men find themselves in a Paris sewer, where Bishop
shoots his teammates. Green grass and trees in Manhattan.
UNCANNY X-MEN #453
The same day as UX 452. After Nightcrawler teleports the team out of the sewer, it is revealed that Bishop shot his teammates to
neutralize nannite spores that infected them upon arrival. The nannites do a number on Logan's healing factor, and Bishop
instructs Kurt to get him to X-Corp Paris to recover, but they stop at a coffee house where they discuss relationships and are then
attacked. Rachel encounters Red Lotus, who notes that he's working with Courtney and Viper to shut down the mutant slave
trade. Bishop and Storm track Sage to a Hellfire Club facility where they find Sebastian Shaw and Roberto da Costa, who has
joined the Club as Black King. Roberto tells the X-Men that they're trying to shut down the slave trade. Everyone at the Club is
subdued in an attack by Donald Pierce. Storm believes that Roberto has "rejoined Cable's cause" - this is not necessarily a
reference to Roberto rejoining X-Force, but rather Nathan the Savior's movement, likely before XFOR2 1. Green trees in Paris.

Gargan is locked up in Norman's old cell and his Scorpion costume is put up for auction among bad guys; the winner of that
auction may be the person who appears in the Scorpion costume in SECWAR 4-5. J. Jonah Jameson now is a Spidey supporter,
Aunt May gives Peter a pep talk, and Norman sends a letter to Peter. Peter and M.J. have sold May's condo and May is moving

The same night as PPTSS2 17. Despite Peter's appearance, M.J. tells him they have to attend a wedding that she mentioned
"three weeks ago."
Friday, November 21
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #18 (4-21)
The day after PPTSS2 18 (1-3). Peter and M.J. attend a wedding, which Peter flees when he feels himself continuing to morph.
Cap tells Nick Fury about the Queen's back story and her plan to detonate a bomb that will kill every human within a 600-mile
radius and thus create a utopia for insects and folks with an insect gene. Green grass and trees in New York.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #19
The same night as PPTSS2 18 (4-21). Cyclops appears here in his new costume. May Parker is here, so I've placed this story after M/KSM 12 (19-23). Spidey morphs into a spider-creature and the Queen subdues him. Cap tells Nick Fury about the origin of the bomb. Cap calls in Thunderbolt Ross, Mr. Fantastic, Human Torch II, Iron Man, Wasp, and Cyclops to find Spidey and the Queen. SHIELD intercepts a message by the Queen warning people to evacuate the east coast before the bomb is detonated "this Thursday, but Cap figures that a successful evacuation can begin in "two days," giving the heroes that long to find the bomb. It is the "Friday night" before "Thursday the twenty-third," making this the 17th of the month, but this may be topical. The Torch alludes to there being a ball game at Yankee Stadium tonight. We see green grass and trees and falling leaves and the weather is nice enough for a rooftop cookout in Manhattan.
Saturday, November 22
BLACK PANTHER v4 #8 - FB (9:2)
One day. Fearing that the X-Men will come for him one day, Erich Paine gives himself a mimicking ability.
GENERATION M #5 - FB (7:1)
One day. Doctors watch over Minnie in the hospital.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12/2 (1:5)
One night. Nina Price butts in front of other people waiting in line for a party.
Sunday, November 23
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #20
Probably early morning, two days after PPTSS2 19 - Fury notes that they have "about five hours left," presumably before they
can begin a successful evacuation of the east coast, which Cap noted could begin in "two days" in PPTSS2 19, and which would
presumably occur at dawn; this is reinforced by Peter's mention of "breakfast" at the end of this story. Cyclops, Storm, and
Nightcrawler (in their Reload costumes) appear, as do Iron Man and two other flying heroes with capes, neither of whom is
positively identified. Aunt May's appearance here places this story after M/KSM 12, and since the Wasp is here, I'd place this
story shortly after M/KSM 12, following the travel abroad that occurs just prior to A:FINALE. Fury's presence as SHIELD head
probably places this story before SECWAR 1 (1-2). This story occurs "ages" (an exaggeration) before IHM:WOR 1 (1-10).
Super heroes and law enforcement work together to locate the Queen's bomb. The spider into which Peter has mutated dies, but
from its carcass emerges a mutated Peter Parker, now able to shoot webs naturally - placing this story sometime before TB2 3.
Peter disarms the bomb, touches base with Cap and Fury, and returns to M.J. as it starts to rain. Green trees in New York.
Monday, November 24
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (39-40)
One day, "six months" after SECWAR 2-FB (14-19). Cap tries to talk Fury into disclosing the nature of the Latverian mission
with the other operatives.
LIVEWIRES #6 - FB (6:1-6:2)
One day. Amongst a burning mess, Jenkins reflects that they'll run out of team members before targets, so they're all destined
LIVEWIRES #6 - FB (21:2-22)
The same day as LW 6-FB (6:1-6:2). It is at least "six months" before LW 6 (1-18). Amongst the burning wreckage of Project
Livewire, destroyed by the Livewires themselves, Jenkins reflects that only the programmed-for-loyalty constructs could be
trusted - and that he himself defined their goals differently from how the suits would like, setting them on their fellow covert
research programs, since they deserved it. And the revised objectives mean the Project Livewire humans have to die. Before
Social crushes his head, he asks that his glasses be given to one of their yet-to-be-activated Stem Cells.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS: HAPPY FRANKSGIVING #1/4 (2-5)
One day, "one week" after FR:HF 1/4 (1). Franklin has received his Super Ocean-Apes and has them in a fish bowl. HERBIE
inadvertently reminds Franklin of Reed's "accelerated growth powder" and Franklin's off to the lab, where Reed runs tests on
Squid Kid. Franklin and HERBIE then race by with an enlarged brine shrimp chasing them. Reed's oblivious, but Squid Kid
sees the danger and leaps out after them. The monster corners Franklin and HERBIE in the hangar when Squid Kid grabs the
giant shrimp from behind. There's a slight tussle, but then Squid Kid and the shrimp fall in love and begin kissing. "Later"
Franklin and HERBIE wave goodbye to the happy couple as the Fantasticar flies them on autopilot out to the ocean. Franklin
then turns to admire the ad in another comic book for x-ray specs.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #2 (12-17)
One day, "a week and a half" after BW5 2 (3-7). Natasha calls up Rafael Perez, the head of organized crime in Miami, and says
she's making his life a living hell because she wants info on where they took Sally Anne to. Matt is back inside his office, and he
plays Natasha's audiotape for Nick Fury. They make the connection that Natasha is attacking organized crime in Miami. Agents
Kestrel and Martin Ferris are in Miami interrogating some of the local drug dealers about what they know about Natasha
attacking organized crime there.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #21 - FB
One night. Spidey encounters the Marauders, a group of guys who try to get beaten up by super-heroes. Full moon.
Tuesday, November 25
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #2 (18-22)
The early morning after BW5 2 (12-17). It is "three, four weeks" after BW5 2 (3-7). Rafael Perez has just finished having
dinner with Bobby Campero, a corrupt corporate guy who's in bed with the sinister agents who kidnaped Sally Anne. Perez asks
Campero to just tell Natasha where Sally Anne is, but Campero is afraid he'll be killed if he gives up that info. He leaves Perez's
house and drives off, but is ambushed by Natasha. They pull over along the side of the road and she starts to interrogate him, but
she doesn't know that there's a sniper's bead on her from above.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #3
The same day as BW5 2 (18-22). This segment occurs "30 years" after BW5 3-FB. Just before "3 A.M.," Ferris tries to strafe
Natasha from his helicopter, but he's attacked and forced to land by Fury in another chopper. Kestrel loses Natasha, but Bobby
gets shot. Daredevil shows up, but Natasha tells him to go home to Hells' Kitchen, which she notes as "gentrified." As Sally
Anne McMasters recuperates at Darien Gap, she befriends a Chilean woman named Mariela, who gives her a history lesson about
Ochoa and his role in torture in Chile. Fury is captured and beaten by Ferris. He's up for a Congressional hearing "in his near
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #4 (1-4)
The same day as BW5 3. Rafael Perez, tells Bobby Campero's wife that he will get Bobby back alive. They are suddenly
interrupted by Jason Williams, who says he's hunting Natasha on his own personal vendetta and is willing to work for Rafael. At
Darien Gap, Sally Anne and Mariela witness another prisoner being taken to an interrogation room.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #1 - FB (9:5)
One day, sometime after A 503 (16-31). Dressed in an overcoat, Steve Rogers visits Hawkeye's grave. We see bare trees.
SHE-HULK v3 #11
One day, after A 503 (16-31). This story occurs during the "year" before S-H4 7. Given that in S-H3 12, Hank Pym has "come
back stateside" (maybe for Thanksgiving), this story probably occurs during the time just before A:FINALE that Hank and Jan
are back from being abroad following her recovery - a time that also includes M/KSM 11 and PPTSS2 19-20. It is supposed to
be "just a couple of weeks" after S-H3 8 (18-22) and a "few weeks" after S-H3 9 (16-21), but also "many weeks" after S-H3 10
(4-22); the source for the latter reference is an alien Elder and it may, oddly, be most accurate. The Mad Thinker is not
incarcerated in this issue. Now trained in the use of her power gem, Titania disposes of Champion and attacks GLK&H, severely
injuring Mallory Book. Titania then finds She-Hulk, who is talking to Doc Samson (here without eyepatch) about her
transformations. During her attack, She-Hulk turns back to Jen Walters. Green grass and trees in New York.
SHE-HULK v3 #12 (1-19)
The same day as S-H3 11. It is a "year" before S-H4 2 (4-20). Southpaw escapes the ruins of GLK&H. Unable to see She-Hulk
in her Jen form, Titania ends up battling Doc Samson, Spidey, the FF, Cap, Iron Man, Yellowjacket, Wasp (in fine health),
Hercules (now working for Damage Control and apparently copacetic with Cap and Shellhead), and Awesome Android (who is
severely injured). Jen, enlisting the aid of comic fans and Ditto, finds a way to trick Titania and take her power gem. Green trees
in New York.
SHE-HULK v4 #14 - FB (14:1)
The same day as S-H3 12 (1-19). Awesome Andy observes as the EMS and fire department respond to the carnage at GLK&H.
It must be the same day as S-H3 12 (1-19). This event occurs before NA:I2 2. She-Hulk hands the power gem over to Reed
Wednesday, November 26
SHE-HULK v3 #12 (20-22)
Probably the day after S-H3 12 (1-19). This segment occurs before S-H4 4-FB (2-8). Mallory is in the hospital, Southpaw is on
the lam with the Mad Thinker's severed head, Awesome Andy won't talk to Ditto, and Hercules works with Damage Control.
Titania is shrunken and imprisoned in the successor to the Big House, the Lang Memorial Penitentiary. Jennifer can no longer
turn into She-Hulk; Doc Samson says it's a mental thing and to give it time - so some time must pass between now and stories in
which Jen can change into She-Hulk again, such as M/TU3 11 and FOES 2-6. GLK&H plan to rebuild and be back in business
in "eight months," so if things stayed on schedule, it's eight months before S-H4 1.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #4 (5-22)
The day after BW5 4 (1-4). After having bad dreams all night, Sally Anne awakens to find the evil scientists who run the place
have come for her. Natasha and Bobby Campero are on a boat in the swamp waterways of Cuba heading to the Darien Gap
facility. Matt is at Guantanamo Bay checking on Nick Fury, who's showing signs of having been tortured. Blair taunts Matt,
saying they're going to keep Fury there forever. Matt attacks Blair and the guards, knocking them out. (One of the guards
doesn't make the widely known connection between Matt and Daredevil.) Fury tells Matt to escape, and he promptly does just as
more guards burst in. Rafael and Jason have come to an agreement to have Jason hunt down Natasha and rescue Bobby
Campero. Natasha breaks into the Darien Gap facility and rescues Sally Anne, who's been experimented on and is in a drug
induced stupor. Natasha sets off some explosives to provide cover for their escape, but some of the guards spot her.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS: HAPPY FRANKSGIVING! #1/5 (1-5:4)
One day. It is the day before Thanksgiving. In looking for his dad, Franklin walks through a dimensional gateway and finds an
alternate reality Reed who's a turkey in a world populated by intelligent turkeys. As Franklin and HERBIE try to return to their
reality, they are captured by the Turkey Universe FF show. Turkey Universe Reed kicks on his universal translator and offers to
have Franklin be a part of their annual Thanksgiving feast tomorrow. "Soon" Franklin and HERBIE are isolated in force field
chambers and realize that they're to be part of the Thanksgiving meal itself. Turkey Universe Franklin and Turkey Universe
HERBIE (called TURKIE) enter, as Turkey Universe Franklin wants to play with a real live human. 616 Franklin and HERBIE
make a quick escape.
Thursday, November 27: Thanksgiving Day
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #5
The early morning after BW5 4. Matt Murdock jumps over the fence at Gauntanamo Bay and arrives in Cuban territory, only to
be picked up by Yelena Belova (who knows about Matt's DD identity). Back at the base, Blair is sending soldiers and
helicopters out to find Murdock, but Murdock fools a copter pilot into thinking he's been killed. At the Darien Gap facility,
Natasha has been captured by Dr. Ochoa and his men. Agent Kestrel and Martin Ferris arrive and start torturing her. When they
see that Natasha doesn't fear pain, they decide to capture Sally Anne and torture her in front of Natasha. Dawn arrives, and Sally
Anne comes out of her drug stupor out in the jungle alongside Bobby Campero. Sally Anne can't decide how to rescue Natasha,
when she and Bobby are suddenly confronted by soldiers. A short bit later, soldiers drag Sally Anne into the cell with Natasha.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #6 (1-20)
The same morning as BW5 5. It turns out that Sally Anne was rescued by soldiers loyal to Yelena, who break in and rescue
Natasha. Yelena and Matt are leading the raid, and they set Natasha free. Agent Kestrel and Martin Ferris make a run for it into
the jungle, but they are quickly tracked down by Natasha and killed. Natasha makes her way back to the Darien Gap facility,
which is now under the control of Yelena and her forces. Bobby Campero died in the crossfire. Matt makes a comment that he
is still a wanted man, but says that he'll head back to the states. Yelena and Natasha rescue all of the women being help prisoner
at Darien Gap. Natasha and Sally Anne agree to stay with Yelena in Cuba, where they will have safe asylum.
FRANKLIN RICHARDS: HAPPY FRANKGSIVING! #1/5 (5:5-5:6)
The day after FR:HF 1/5 (1-5). The FF sit down for Thanksgiving dinner and Franklin notes that he's thankful that he's not the
main course. Ben brings out the cooked bird and Franklin starts to become nauseous.

One night. Wolf Nina Price attacks a thug. There must be a full moon.
Friday, November 28
GENERATION M #5 - FB (7:2)
One day. Sally and Ken wait as Minnie gets younger.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #21 (1-15)
One "Friday" night. Warren's reference to Xavier sending his regards is an indication that this segment probably occurs
sometime after X 157; Warren may be in New York while arranging a deal for his Wings Over the World idea. The FF, Spidey,
Black Cat, Dr. Strange, and Archangel gather to play poker. That no one from the Avengers is here may be an indication that this
story occurs after A 503 (16-31). I've placed the FF here after FF 522. The Kingpin (possibly out on bail as he awaits trial)
arrives and challenges the group to play him.
Saturday, November 29
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #12 (22:2)
One day. Thunder is a member of the League of Super-Pets.
One day. The FF, Spidey, Black Cat, Dr. Strange, Archangel, and Kingpin continue playing poker all day.
Sunday, November 30
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #21 (16-22)
The "Sunday" morning after PPTSS2 21 (1-15). Spidey beats the Kingpin at poker. Archangel and Black Cat flirt, but his
relationship with Paige may be still be on.
BLACK WIDOW: THE THINGS THEY SAY ABOUT HER #6 (21-22)
One day, perhaps a few days after BW5 6 (1-20). This segment must occur before SECWAR 1 (1-2). Sally Anne and Natasha
are still in Cuba, resting up and relaxing. The President is on the TV making a speech about terrorism. Matt is in his Daredevil
costume back in Hell's Kitchen, where there are "Wanted" posters for Matt and Natasha. Nick Fury is still in Guantanamo
prison. Rafael Perez is having Bobby Campero buried. Jason Williams gets ready to hunt Natasha.
Monday, December 1
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #8 (8:1)
One day. Warren Worthington meets with Gilbane Construction to plan the building of the Wings Over the World facility.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12/2 (1:7)
One day. Nina Price speeds through traffic without regard to other people on the street.
PUNISHER v7 #7 (1-11)
One day, long enough after PUN7 6 for Frank to heal from his injuries. Frank deals with a bomb explosion in Hell's Kitchen,
which has been cleaned up, as referenced in DD2 56-FB (9). We see bare trees, leaves on the ground, windy weather, and coats.
Tuesday, December 2
PUNISHER v7 #7 (12-18)
The day after PUN7 7 (1-11). It is "three days" before PUN7 10. Finn, Michael, and Peter discuss the ramifications of having
let a bomb off in NYC. Frank sees Tommy Toner abducted by Maginty's men.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #22 (1-9)
One day with a rainy evening. It is more than "a year or so" after PPTSS2 22-FB (7:2). Spidey encounters a homeless man who
he realizes is the Mindworm. Green trees in New York. We see a variety of clothing, from short sleeved shirts to padded jackets.
One night, "three months" after A 503 (16-31) and, I'd argue, "six months" (inclusive) before A4 1 (1-8). It must be more than
just "a few months" before A4 15-FB and more than "six months" before MSM2 1. This story must occur before M/TU3 1, TB2
1, CA5 1, YA 2-FB (10-11), and SSO 1 (1-7). This story must occur after IM3 89 (15-21), since Stark notes that the public
considers Iron Man to be someone else now. Captain Britain has been released from the hospital and She-Hulk is back to
normal, probably following S-H3 12 (20-22). The Wasp has returned from abroad after her recovery; my theory is that she
appeared in M/KSM 11-12, PPTSS2 19-20, and S-H3 12 during a short time between her return from travel abroad and this
story - and that only a few of the Avengers assembled in this story (Cap, Iron Man, YJ, Jen) knew of the travel and return until
now. Beast appears in his Reload costume. Stark tells the team that he and his company will not "be in a position to finance the
Avengers anymore" - this means that this story must occur before XFOR2 5. After "months," the Avengers gather at the ruins of
Avengers Embassy to discuss Disassembled. Stark notes that he's keeping the place in ruins as a memorial. Quicksilver notes
that Magneto has taken Wanda out of the country to Charles Xavier. Pym announces that he has accepted a fellowship at Oxford
and that he and Jan are "leaving in a month" (perhaps to begin the new year at Oxford). She-Hulk, Falcon (presumably here after
an unpublished story following CA&F 14), and Captain Britain leave the team. The rest greet a crowd of supporters who have
gathered at the site. The Avengers disband. After this story, or perhaps beginning before this story and after A 503, Jennifer
spends most of "8 months" in Bone, Idaho.
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1 - FB (11:3-14:3)
The same night as A:FINALE. This flashback must occur between YA 2-FB (10-11) and YA 8-FB. While posing as Tony Stark
for fun, Teddy Altman sees a TV broadcast of Iron Man (with Cap, Wasp, and Beast visible) announcing the disbanding of the
Avengers. He and his friend Greg go to the wrecked Avengers Mansion. Teddy discourages Greg from looting the place. Then
Young Kang shows up as Iron Lad.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #7 - FB (17)
The same night as A:FINALE. It may not be "three months" before CA5 7-FB (18-19). In a bar outside Pittsburgh, Jack
Monroe sees a TV news report about the Avengers disbanding "earlier today."

DISTRICT X #7
One night, "a few weeks" after XU2 2. Matti Falcone and his brother are selling vermin for twenty bucks a pop. They run when
they see a squad car, but Matti drops one into a gutter drain. As Matti reaches in for it, we see the Worm in the sewer
underneath. Ortega and his new partner Nancy confront the boys to ask how their father is doing. Izzy and Nancy talk in the squad car. At the Ortegas' apartment, Izzy and Armena get ready to go to the O-Zone for an art exhibit, but Armena finds Izzy's diary and they fight. Carrie the babysitter shows up and they leave. In front of the O-Zone, they run into Bishop, who joins them. They meet Izzy's sister Laline, who's running the exhibit. She introduces them to Nemesio, whose paintings predict the future. Nemesio gets a flash of blood on Izzy's hand then shows them a picture of Winston Hobbes, the Worm. Bishop, Izzy, and Armena leave the exhibit, and run into Dzemal outside. Bishop catches up with him, but is leery of the company he's keeping. They leave, but Dzemal is given a hard time by Jazz, who then gives him some drugs. Bishop drives Izzy and Armena home, and they talk about Mr. M. At Dante's Inferno bar, Mr. M talks to the bartender about how business has slowed since Kaufman left. Mr. M leaves with a lady, who then shoots him in the head at the East River. We see cold weather, with people wearing hats and coats, and people's breath can be seen. Full moon.
Thursday, December 4
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #22 (12:1-12:3)
Probably the day (during the "next couple of days") after PPTSS2 22 (10-11). Spidey foils a heist while thinking about
Mindworm. Then Peter attends a rooftop party.

One day. Warren Worthington meets with Scalar Tensils to design wing equipment for his Wings Over the World project.
DISTRICT X #8
The day after DX 7. Mr. M is with Hanna at a New York hospital while Izzy talks with the doctor. Mr. M survived last night's
gunshot wound. As Mr. M and Hanna leave, Izzy calls Bishop. At the Precinct 11 station house, Izzy accuses Bishop's boss
Vazhin of hiring a professional to kill Mr. M. Bishop confronts and threatens Vazhin, who admits hiring the assassin. Bishop
leaves and calls Izzy, but he isn't home. Armena invites him up anyway. Izzy is at the park with Hanna, Mr. M, Esteban, and
Chamayra. Izzy and Hanna run into Gregor, who tells them about the ''tunnel rats,'' mutants who live in the sewers. Izzy isn't
happy to hear about families living underground, but the tunnel rats are armed and don't want to leave. At the Ortegas'
Armena and Bishop are talking when Izzy and the kids return. Bishop comforts a crying Armena. Izzy's ticked, Bishop leaves,
Armena goads Izzy, and then he chokes her. He leaves and runs into Bishop, who's waiting outside. Izzy slugs him and keeps
walking. At the Wildkat Klub, Izzy asks Lara the Illusionist to look like his wife. Underground, the Worm watches a meeting
Melek has called with all of the tunnel rats. They decide that the surface people won't leave them alone, so he decides to shut off
their power. Nemesio is seen, worried about what's going to happen. The Worm enters St. Jerome's Children's Hospital and
kills a security guard. We see autumn trees, daytime grass, nighttime snow, and people wearing coats, hats, and gloves.

but Peter is captured by Yorkie and Andy. One leafy tree is shown in silhouette.
Friday, December 5
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12/2
The early morning after AAF2 12/2-FB (2:3-2:4). This segment occurs "over a month" after AAF2 11/2 (8) and before NFHC
1. Nina and Inger track a dangerous criminal to a shack in the woods. Vampire Nina attacks but discovers it's an ambush; the
criminal is really a SHIELD operative, and he and another SHIELD agent attempt to capture Nina. They nearly succeed, but the
Werewolf by Night jumps in and attacks the SHIELD agents. Nina and Jack Russell team up and defeat the SHIELD agents.
Back at SHIELD headquarters, Dugan says that it's time to ask Nina to join SHIELD. At dawn, Nina and Jack transform back
into humans and walk off together with Inger. Jack tells niece Nina he has a lot to tell her about her mother. People are wearing
coats in Toronto. There cannot be a full moon.
PUNISHER v7 #9 (19-22)
The morning after PUN7 9 (1-18). Maginty tells Napper to continue cutting up Tommy. He says he wants 6 or 7 packages of
body parts going out in the mail "today," which puts this segment after midnight. Frank interrogates the now awake Peter.
PUNISHER v7 #10
The same day as PUN7 9 (19-22). It is "two days" after PUN7 8 (1-19) and "three days" after PUN7 7 (12-18). It is the "year"
after PUN7 10-FB (4:3) and PUN7 10-FB (5:2). Peter tells Frank all he knows about the Irish gang war, the efforts of warring
factions to get the estate left by deceased mob boss Ol' Man Nesbitt.
PUNISHER v7 #11 (1-10)
The same day as PUN7 10. The gun battle continues. Punisher figures out Maginty is sneaking up on him, and turns around and
fires, missing Maginty, but killing all of Maginty's men. Everyone flees the scene as the cops show up. Maginty tosses the
severed head of Tommy Toner out in front of the remaining Westies, scaring many of them off. Maginty kills Brenda's right
hand man Gerry. As Frank, Yorkie, and Andy get down to their escape boat, they run into the River Rats. They wound Eamon
and kill Bunk. The wounded Brenda falls into the bay, and gets fished out by Finn Cooley, who offers up a peace treaty between
DISTRICT X #9
The day after DX 8. It is "years" after DX 9-FB (21:3-21:4). Izzy comes home to Armena watching the news at dawn. They
talk briefly and start to patch things up when Izzy is called to the station, where Izzy has been re-partnered with Bishop. Nancy
gives Izzy a hard time. They read a note from Melek and Bishop says they have three days before SWAT teams move into the
sewers. A witness from the children's hospital describes the Worm, who Bishop recognizes from Nemesio's painting. Izzy calls
his sister. Bishop, Izzy, and Laline look around Nemesio's apartment, where there are more prophetic paintings. Nemesio is
gone and Izzy gets more agitated. Nemesio is with the tunnel rats, but transit cops are trying to run them out. This upsets Melek.
At the station house, Bishop and Izzy discuss the case when Gregor's sister comes to see Izzy. She thinks Gregor is with
Nemesio. Another message arrives from Melek, threatening another blackout. Melek and Ahmed combine their powers to
sabotage power lines from underground, instead of going up to do it personally. Dzemal watches. The blackout happens and
Millicent Ferrall is killed by the Worm in her apartment. An hour later, Bishop and Izzy show up and discover Millicent used to
work at St. Jerome's. They talk to Millicent's boss, who gives them a history lesson on the Worm. They decide to visit the
parents. Snow blankets Manhattan.

Saturday, December 6
PUNISHER v7 #11 (11-22)
The morning after PUN7 11 (1-10). Maginty heads back to the his hideout, and walks inside, only to be knocked out cold by
Napper French. Napper straps Maginty into the same bed that he was cutting up Tommy Toner in earlier, and prepares to start
cutting up Maginty. At dawn, Brenda, Finn, and Michael arrive back at the Westies' hideout, where they agree to share their
portions of the code with each other. All of the remaining River Rats abandon Polly and Eamon, leaving them to fend for
themselves. Back at the Punisher's base, they get ready for the next round. Yorkie has a talk with the still helpless prisoner
Peter, and Punisher reloads all his weapons.
PUNISHER v7 #12
The same day as PUN7 11 (11-22). Maginty wakes up to find himself tied to the bed. Napper French starts cutting off a couple
of Maginty's fingers when the last two of Maginty's remaining thugs burst in and kill Napper. They untie Maginty, who decides
it's time to call a truce. He heads out to the Westies hideout, where they meet up with Brenda, Michael, and Finn. Eamon and
Polly arrive a short time later, and they all declare truce and give up their sides of the code. They get the coordinates to the
money that' Nesbitt hid away for them, and take off for a rusted tanker in New York harbor. Frank, Yorkie, and Andy follow
them out there. As they get inside, Punisher and company launch their attack. Michael and Eamon are killed. Frank is wounded
by a shrapnel grenade tossed by Finn, and Yorkie has to rescue Frank. Maginty, Finn, Brenda, and Polly all make it into the
lower part of the old tanker and find a treasure chest. They open it up and find not money, but a bomb waiting for them. The
tanker explodes, knocking Frank and Yorkie into the water. Andy pulls them out, and they leave before the cops arrive. Later, as
they're driving out to the airport, they pull over to the side of the road. Andy pulls out Peter from the trunk, takes him into a
back alley and kills him. Frank thanks Yorkie for saving him at the tanker but not to come back to New York anytime soon.
Frank gets out of the car and walks home. Andy gets back in and they drive off to the airport, heading home to England.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #22 (13:2-13:3)
Perhaps the day after PPTSS2 22 (12-13). Spidey battles Electro.
HERCULES #1 - FB (7-9)
One day, after T2 85 (12-24). The Avengers hold a memorial service for Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Jack of Hearts, and Vision. Reed,
Sue, and Ben are probably here after FF 526. Cyclops, Logan, and Beast (in his Reload costume) are here. Also here are Nick
Fury (not in prison), Spidey, Subby, Shellhead, Daredevil, Moon Knight, Quasar, the Surfer, Warbird, Spider-Woman
(costumed, but probably de-powered), Darkhawk, the Panther, Stingray, Wonder Man, and Tigra. Wasp and YJ are notably
absent. If the Vision's body is in the casket, then this flashback must occur after YA 2-FB (10-11). A drunk Hercules crashes
the service and chastises the group for not memorializing the dead Thor. Thor's death is news to Iron Man, who claims that
Thor's "been gone for a few weeks" (although it must be longer than that since Iron Man has seen him).
DISTRICT X #10
The day after DX 9. It is a "Saturday." At dawn, Bishop and Izzy talk to the Hobbeses and decide to move them to a safe house.
Bishop calls Mr. Vazhin to give him an update. Izzy goes home to clean up and pop some pills, then gives Carrie the babysitter a
hard time about shedding her skin in front of his kids. Bishop and Izzy investigate the sewers, then get attacked by some of the
tunnel rats, then talk to Melek, who says they won't leave the sewers. Then they run into Dzemal. Bishop and Izzy wait for the
Worm to arrive at the Hobbes residence and Izzy pops more pills. Nemesio watches the Worm go through the sewers. Izzy calls
Lara while watching for the Worm, but he becomes distracted and doesn't see him approach. The Worm attacks Bishop. Snow
and bare trees in New York.
DISTRICT X #11 (1-6)
The same night as DX 10. Bishop is thrown through the window. Izzy hangs up on Lara and calls for backup. Inside, the Worm
screams at photographs. Nancy shows up as the Worm comes out, but he escapes. Later that night, Izzy talks to Armena about
the Worm getting away, but she scolds him about upsetting the babysitter.
Sunday, December 7
ALPHA FLIGHT v3 #12 (22:3-22:4)
One day. Walter Langkowski experiments in his lab.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #8 (8:3)
One day. Warren Worthington arranges to use SHIELD anti-gravity units for his project. Nick Fury appears here aboard the
heli-carrier, so this segment likely occurs before SECWAR 1 (1-2).
DISTRICT X #11 (7-22)
The day after DX 11 (1-6). At the Ortega's apartment, Izzy makes Esteban feel like crap, and Armena confronts Izzy about his
pills, then kicks him out. She also lets him know that she knows that he's sleeping around. At the station house, Mitya asks Izzy
if he's found Gregor yet, but he had forgotten. His boss tells him to go home as he's not needed for the raid in the sewers, but
Ortega shows up anyway, and Bishop agrees to let him come along. Most of the tunnel rats inform Melek that they're going to
Bishop introduces Izzy to Wilma Parks from child welfare. They go into the sewers and meet the group going to the surface.
Nemesio runs through the sewers and meets the group. He tells them he knows where the Worm is and takes them there.
DISTRICT X #12 (1-17)
The same night as DX 11 (7-22). Bishop, Izzy, and Nemesio look around the Worm's place and discover that he's been eating
people. They stumble across Melek fighting the Worm, who's already killed Sarah. Everyone fights, the Worm impales
Nemesio, Bishop shoots the Worm with energy, the Worm attacks Bishop, and Izzy shoots and kills the Worm. Bishop and Izzy
recover and Melek wanders off with Sarah's corpse. Nemesio reveals that he knew he would die down here, then he dies. Izzy
blames himself for everything and Bishop tells him to go home. Instead, Izzy goes to Lara's place.
Monday, December 8
GENERATION M #5 - FB (7:4-7:5)
One day. On Minnie's "fourth birthday," her body turns six months old. Sally argues with Ken.
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #1 (1-7)
One day, "5 months" before SSO 1 (8-22). Since "the Avengers are dead or disbanded," this story must occur sometime between
A:FINALE and A4 1 (1-8). Valerie Cooper requests funding for a new human-driven Sentinel project run by the Office of
National Emergency and engineered by Jim Rhodes. Green trees.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #22 (13:4-22)
One rainy night, "a week" after PPTSS2 22 (10-11). Spidey swings in on the Mindworm, who's being hassled by a gang. In the
ensuing melee, Mindworm is killed.
Tuesday, December 9
GIANT-SIZE SPIDER-WOMAN #1
One day, "six months" before A4 7 and after A 503 (30-31). Jessica Drew is working on a private eye job, waiting outside a
convenience store for troublemakers. While she waits, she reflects on her career downturn and muses that even if she had made it
to the Avengers, she would almost certainly have been killed by "whatever the hell happened at Avengers Mansion that killed
half the team." The troublemakers show up and Jessica defeats them with her SHIELD training and malfunctioning powers,
earning $800 from her client. Jessica returns to her apartment and finds a man called Connely waiting for her, carrying her old
Spider-Woman costume. After a brief altercation, he subdues her. He claims to be a fan of hers and offers to restore her powers
and give her life direction purpose again. She asks what he wants, and he replies "See, well, there's the rub." Green trees in San
NEW AVENGERS #14 - FB (9:5-11)
The same day as GSSW 1. Connely tells Jessica that Hydra will give her her powers back if she gets reinstated by SHIELD and
agrees to be a double agent for the bad guys. Jessica meets with Fury, who asks her work against Hydra as a double agent for
SHIELD. It is cold enough in San Francisco for jackets and trenchcoats.
Wednesday, December 10
NEW AVENGERS #14 - FB (12)
Perhaps the day after A4 14-FB (9-11). In a Hydra lab, Jessica begins the procedure that will restore her powers. The procedure
may take seventeen weeks rather than "seventeen months."
Thursday, December 11
GENERATION M #5 - FB (8-9)
One day, "a few months" before GENM 1 (1-5). This flashback occurs during the "year" before CW:FL 1 (6-13). Minnie dies.
Friday, December 12
NEW WARRIORS v3 #3 - FB (15:2)
One day. This flashback probably occurs after S-H3 5. Dwayne Taylor uses his fortune to fund research for a cure to cancer. He
finds Zachary Smith who has found a cancer-eating bacteria, as shown in this newspaper photo.
LONERS #2 - FB (13:1-13:2)
One night. As Johnny Gallo watches news coverage of a battle involving Iron Fist and Moon Knight, Eddie McDonough calls him and tries in vain to get him to get back together as Hornet and Ricochet.
Saturday, December 13
FOUR #14 - FB (2:1-2:2)
One day. Alicia works on a sculpture of Captain America and the Thing visits. The full moon shown here is probably the one
before that shown in FOUR 14 (1-21).
Sunday, December 14
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #1 (18:1-18:2)
One day. Dr. Rao prepares for a presentation in which she's "about to change the world."
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #1 (19-24)
The same day as ASTONX3 1 (18:1-18:2). Dr. Rao, wearing the same clothing as in ASTONX3 1 (18:1-18:2), announces a
cure for the mutant gene. Ord and his group of mutant terrorists take hostages in the Chapman Building and Scott's team
responds, donning the Reload costumes). Green grass and trees at Westchester
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #2
The same day as ASTONX3 1 (18-24). The X-Men defeat Ord and his gang and save the hostages at an annual fund-raiser
which Emma hasn't attended for the first time; it's because her identity as a mutant is now publicly known, an indication that this
story may occur the year after X 116 (although I have it as two years). Tension builds between Emma and Kitty and Beast visits
Kavita Rao. Lockheed finds Kitty. Green grass and trees in New York. Full moon.
Monday, December 15
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #3
It seems to be late the day after ASTONX3 2; Beast informs his teammates: "I went to see Kavita. She agreed I should verify her
results and gave me a sample. I'll be a day at most."; and Rao tells Ord: "I saw your 'diversion' on the news. Mercenaries.
Hired thugs in a room full of innocent people. It's inexcusable." Yet it's long enough after ASTONX3 2 for "over sixteen
hundred alleged mutants" to have lined up outside Benetech Labs demanding Dr. Rao's "cure." Cyclops gets a meeting with
Nick Fury and tells him: "You know about this 'cure' thing, right? 'Mutants are a disease.'? This monster shows up right when
all that comes out, running a crew carrying your ordnance, and the best you can do is accuse him of being one of us?" (Again, it
seems to be late the day after ASTONX3 2.) It's a school day in which Emma taught an ethics class and Kitty counsels a student
(Wing). After getting into a fight with Logan over the serum, Beast makes a discovery about a Benetech test subject and insists
on going there "tonight." Green grass and trees at Westchester. Full moon.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #4
The same night as ASTONX3 3. As the X-Men case Genetech, Ord shows up at the Xavier Institute and battles Wing and
Hisako. He injects Wing with serum. At Benetech, the X-Men fight security and Kitty encounters Colossus. Full moon.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #5
The same night as ASTONX3 4. Elixir heals Wing, who discovers that his powers are gone. The Beast confronts Dr. Rao about
her experiments on mutants, the X-Men fight Genetech security, and Colossus smashes Ord, who has returned to Genetech from
the Institute. Nick Fury and SHIELD show up.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #6 (3-19)
The same night as ASTONX3 5. SHIELD Agent Brand explains Ord's mission to rid the world of mutants. The X-Men defeat
Ord and destroy most of Rao's work in the process. Fury doesn't appear to trust the Astonishing team very much; that probably
places this issue before C&D 6 (17-21). Full moon.
Tuesday, December 16
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #6 (20-23)
The morning after ASTONX3 6 (3-19). This segment must occur before M/TU3 1-FB and HERC 1-FB (7-9). Scott and Hank
discuss Rao's cure and Kitty and Peter get reacquainted. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
Wednesday, December 17
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/3 - FB (2:3-4)
One day during "the week before Christmas." Franklin goes holiday shopping with Johnny and his girlfriend Kourtney
(introduced in FOUR 1, and with whom he's been going out for "months" now). Then Franklin accompanies his mother and
Valeria (who is in a stroller) to St. Patrick's Cathedral, where Sue lights a few candles. We see snow and bare trees in New
Thursday, December 18
FOUR #14 - FB (2:3-2:4)
One day, probably shortly after FOUR 14-FB (2:1-2:2). This flashback occurs before FOUR 13 (1-5) and "a month" before
FOUR 14 (1-21). Philip Masters shows up at Alicia's apartment and promises to restore her eyesight.
Friday, December 19
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/3 - FB (5-8)
One day, "later" in the "week" of M/HOL2004/3-FB (2-4). Franklin asks Ben about Hanukkah, then he asks his father if he
believes in God, just like he did back in M/DS 3. It is not known why neither Franklin nor Reed remember that previous
X-MEN v2 #165 (1-8)
One day. X-23 is now with the X-Men; Logan states, "It took courage for X-23 to come to our school," and he assigns her to
share a room with Kitty and Rachel (who X-23 meets for the first time here). Iceman asks X-23, "What kind of a name is X-23?"
as if he has just recently met her. These are clues that this story occurs very shortly after UX 454. The X-Men handle rescue
operations at the scene of a major highway accident.
Saturday, December 20
DISTRICT X #12 (18-22)
One day, long enough after DX 12 (1-17) for Izzy to have set up visitation times with his kids. It is likely a weekend, since the
kids are not in school. Izzy wakes up next to Lara in her apartment. He mentions that he's taking his kids to see a movie and do
"dad stuff." On the way to pick up his kids, Izzy stops to see Gregor. It's revealed that he fell asleep in the sewers while he was
missing and grew roots into the ground. Now he's stuck here, more plant than human. He's even growing fruit. Mikhail reads to
him. Jacket weather.
Sunday, December 21
X-MEN v2 #165 (9-24)
One day. This segment probably occurs before GAM4 1 and must occur before M/TU3 1-FB. X 165 (1-8) is referred to as
having occurred "the other day." Warren and Paige are back from "hanging on the coast." Elixir has been trying to cure Gambit's blindness with no luck, so Sage does another "jump-start" on the Cajun's powers, restoring his sight (why this wasn't done earlier is beyond me). Sam Guthrie is here, "playing hookie from X-Force," according to the narration - so it must be after XFOR2 6; and he must be here before C&DP 15 (6-11), given his off-world adventures from then until House of M. Jubilee is here too, but Colossus and Psylocke are not. Julian Keller refers to "my man Icarus," but that doesn't necessarily mean that Jay is still a member of the Hellions. Xavier and Magneto appear unnoticed as projections at the Institute - Magneto: "You could join them, you know. They're your students, Charles - your house, your legacy." Xavier: "This isn't the time, old friend. There are too many questions I'm not prepared to answer just yet..." The X-Men help out at a hospice, and Warren states the X-Men "try to do this every year." "'Tis the season" of "Christmas," "the season of joy," but it's before the students leave for holiday break (so before M/HOL'04 1/2) - we see the Institute decorated with holiday greenery (including "mistletoe" and a Christmas tree), Beast and Rachel dressed up like Santa Claus and an elf and wish folks a "season's greetings," Sage wishes Gambit a "Joyeux Noel," and Scott and Emma wish Rachel a "Merry Christmas" by introducing her to her grandparents John and Elaine Grey. We see autumn leaves on trees that should be bare as well as green grass in the Westchester area, but enough snow at Xavier's for a snowball fight (probably courtesy of Iceman and Storm). Noriko states that "it's cold enough outside," and during a concert by Lila Cheney, Storm warms things up at the Institute so "nobody needs coats."
PUNISHER: RED XMAS #1 (1-3)
One snowy day, probably a few days before PRX 1 (4-7). Dressed as Santa Claus, the Punisher kills some mobsters in New
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2005 #1 - FB (4:3-4:8)
One day. In Subterranea, the Moloids offer their Christmas gifts to the Mole Man. When he receives a snow globe, Mole Man
says "Santa..." and wanders off.
One day. Sue Richards meets Bethany Palmer at a "holiday party" that Fantastic Enterprises hosts during the "year" before
FOUR 28 (1-22).
Monday, December 22: Winter Solstice
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/2 (1-6)
On "December 22nd," the faculty of the Xavier Institute dismiss the students for "holiday break." All the faculty and students
have places to go except Kevin Ford, so Scott and Emma decide to stay at the Institute with him for the holidays. Beast appears
to have reunited with Trish Tilby. We see bare trees at Xavier's, as well as snow created by Iceman, who does not appear here in
ice form (probably because he's using an image inducer).
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2005 #1
One day, shortly after M/HOL05 1-FB (4:3-4:8). Hoping to draw out their master, the Moloids kidnap department store Santas.
The FF intervene and Reed decides to launch an expedition against the Moloids, but Ben decides to help the Moloids draw out
Mole Man. Ben asks Spidey (who's fought Mole Man "once or twice"), Hulk (who talks dumb and apparently can be reached by
phone booth in the southwestern desert), and She-Hulk for clues. Jen appears here in her She-Hulk form in a law office with files on super-humans, so it may not be GLK&H per se, which may be rebuilding in the wake of S-H3 12 (20-22).
Ben talks to the dancer the Mole Man dumped and to Mole Man's grandmother. Finally, he gets Namor to dress as Santa and
brings him to Subterranea because of a resemblance Namor has to a Santa from Mole Man's youth. When this fails to draw out
Mole Man, the FF leave with the kidnaped Santas. Meanwhile, Mole Man enjoys a vacation in Santa Barbara.
Tuesday, December 23
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/2 (7)
On a snowy "December 23rd," Scott and Emma take Kevin Christmas shopping and to a movie. We see a Christmas tree at FAO
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2006 #1/3
One snowy day during the "Christmas" and "Chanukah" season. Uatu spies on Ben Grimm, who mopes around the Baxter
Building and kicks HERBIE, depressed because everyone else is out. Ben wanders into a lab and touches a polarized energy
lattice with his finger. The ground shorts out, sending Ben careening into an insect-o-cutor and allowing Annihilus to step
through from the Negative Zone. Uatu holds a koala and watches as Annihilus lunges at Ben trying to murder him. Uatu stands
with a quetzal and a manta ray, watching the fray. Annihilus wallops Ben, who picks up a "turbulence gun." The gun doesn't do
much good and Annihilus breaks it. He then notices the TV and says that he caught part of the episode in the Negative Zone but
never learned how it ends. Ben offers to let him watch if he surrenders. Reed (in his current/classic costume) and Sue (in a new
costume with thigh-high boots, evening-gown length gloves and no belt) return home with Christmas presents to find Annihilus
and Ben asleep in front of the TV with a half-eaten pizza, some popcorn and soda.
Wednesday, December 24: Christmas Eve
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/2 (8-11)
On a snowy "December 24th," Scott and Emma take Kevin skating at Rockefeller Plaza, then they pick a Christmas tree. That
night, they sit by the fireplace at the Institute. Full moon.
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2004 #1/3 - FB (9:3-9:5)
One night. The FF celebrate what is probably Christmas Eve in the Baxter Building. We see a Christmas tree and wrapped gifts.
Kourtney is probably here before FOUR 13 (6-11).
MARVEL HOLIDAY SPECIAL 2005 #1/3 (1-10:3)
One "Christmas Eve" night, "a year" before M/HOL05 1, and so probably the same night as M/HOL04 1/3-FB (9:3-9:5).
Desperate to get his kids Christmas gifts, Albert Potter dons his Hurricane costume and breaks into a department store. The FF
subdue him and discover his motives. Full moon.
X-MEN v2 #181/2 (1-5:4)
One "Christmas Eve" night. Perhaps as the FF are busy in M/HOL05 1/3 (1-10), Franklin realizes he forgot to get his family
presents. He and Herbie use Reed's time platform to travel to different time periods and collect gifts, but while they make it back
to the present, they lose the gifts and ruin the platform.
GLX-MAS SPECIAL #1/2 - FB (6:3-7:3)
Probably the night of Christmas Eve. It is "1 year" before GLX 1/2. The GLA fight the giant robot snowman of Dr.
Tannenbaum, who is "out to destroy Christmas." Snow in Muskego, Wisconsin.
GLA #3 - FB - FB (14:3-15:3)

The morning after M/HOL05 1/3 (1-10). On "Christmas Day," Potter's kids awaken to find that the FF have brought them a
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #27
It is a snowy "Christmas" in this standalone story that probably occurs out of sequence with other issues of PPTSS2. Peter visits
Uncle Ben's grave and imagines having a talk with him about responsibility and guilt. After Peter leaves, Aunt May shows up.
Bare trees. Waning crescent moon.
PUNISHER: RED XMAS #1 (4-7:4)
One snowy day, probably a few days after PRX 1 (1-3). This segment occurs after P:BV 1-FB (8-9). It is "48 hours" before
PRX 1 (7:5). At the mobsters' funeral on "Christmas Day," the mobsters' wives discuss how Dominick, the surviving member
of the family, is flying into town and that they should keep the businesses running like normal, with them running things in place
of their husbands. They decide to pool some money to call Suspiria to kill the Punisher.
Friday, December 26

WOLVERINE: SOULTAKER #1
One day. Wolverine arrives in Japan to visit Amiko and meets Yukio at a restaurant. Yukio reveals a necklace she stole. They
decide to investigate its origins, so they bring it to Logan's old friend, Kenichiro, who recognizes it as the "Mark of Mana" and
freaks out. They are subsequently attacked by ninjas and Kenichiro dies in the fight. Wolverine grabs the necklace and has
visions of an ancient battle. Logan makes a topical reference to the upcoming "Girl's Day" on March 3.
WOLVERINE: SOULTAKER #2 (1-18)
The same day as W:S 1. Wolverine visits the shrine in question. That night he calls Yukio then infiltrates the shrine in costume.
He finds the body of Mana Yanowa surrounded by monks. They are then attacked by more ninjas, all the monks are killed, and
Wolverine takes Mana and leaves. Green trees in Japan.
Tuesday, December 30

PUNISHER: RED XMAS #1 (8-19)
The "New Year's Eve" after PRX 1 (7:5). Punisher kills Dominick and his goons. At "11:40 PM," Suspiria shoots civilians in
Times Square during the New Year's Eve countdown to draw out the Punisher. The cops can't do anything because she's
threatened to detonate bombs that she claims to have planted. Punisher sees it on the news, heads over, and is fooled by a sniper
decoy as Suspiria watches.
