wins and binds and interrogates Suspiria. That morning, Suspiria's body is dropped on Regina's car. She calls a meeting with
the other wives and the Punisher shows up and kills Regina. He tells the rest that they have 24 hours to get out of the country,

Friday, January 2

Saturday, January 3
WOLVERINE: SOULTAKER #5 (24)
One day, a "few days" after W:S 5 (1-23). Given the reference to Sunfire and Silver Samurai in W:S 1, this segment must occur
before ROGUE3 7 (1-12). While Wolverine, Yukio, Amiko, and Mana eat, Mana reveals that Amiko is her descendant and
offers to train Amiko. It is "Girl's Day," March 3, but this reference may be topical.
One day, probably two or three days before X:KPSF 1 (1). Puff is photographed by her abductors.
Sunday, January 4

X-MEN: KITTY PRYDE - SHADOW & FLAME #1 (1)
One day. At the Xavier Institute, Scott gives Kitty a letter from Japan. It turns out to be a ransom note, with a photograph of
Puff, Lockheed's ex-girlfriend. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #7
One school day, sometime after X 161, since Sammy's death and the Brotherhood's attack are mentioned. David's kid sister,
mutant wannabe Kim, visits the school. Rahne and Josh share a kiss. Noriko calls home only to be rebuffed. The New Mutants
train the Danger Room. Weird things happen at Xavier's and Kim believes she's a mutant who can talk to the suspected ghost
responsible. Jay's statement, "after Sammy died," and Shan's statement, "We lost some rare first editions when the school was ...
attacked," indicate that this issue occurs after UX 164. Gambit is teaching a projectile class, so his sight is back - that places this
issue after X 165 (9-24) and quite likely after school reconvenes following the Christmas break in M/HOL'04 1/2. Appearing as
teachers in this issue are Gambit (whose sight must be back, since he's teaching a projectile class), Nightcrawler (in new
costume, teaching dramatic class), and Beast (who, in civilian clothes, gives out a science assignment "for next week"). "It's
freezing" and jackets are worn by some at the Institute. Kim must have a school vacation - perhaps a prolonged holiday/winter
break? Green grass and autumn leaves at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #8 (1-14)
The same day as NX 7. After the Danger Room mysteriously turns on, the New Mutants are convinced that a ghost is at the
Institute. Cyclops suspects Julian to be the culprit. Josh and Kevin get into an argument. Cyclops and Emma are here in Reload
costumes and Beast is in civilian clothes. Jacket weather at Xavier's. Both bare and leafy trees (in silhouette) are seen at
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #1 - FB
One school day. This flashback must occur after ASTONX3 6 (20-23). Given X-23's appearance in M/TU3 5-6, this storyline
must occur after UX 454 and probably after X 165 (9-24). A mutant boy, Paul Patterson, manifests his powers in Peter's high
school. Wolverine (sent by Scott) attacks and Spidey webs him up. We see trees with green and autumn leaves.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #1
The same day as M/TU3 1-FB. Logan escapes from Spidey's web while the mutant boy leads Spidey to his home, where Spidey
finds a corpse.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #2 (1-18)
The same night as M/TU3 1. Referring to Wolverine and Spider-Man, Patterson notes, "so this is what we're left with after the
Avengers disbanded"; this places this story after A:FINALE and before the New Avengers are public. Logan is still complaining
about his costume: "Friggin' Cyclops and his friggin' new costumes. 'We have to astonish them.' Give me a break." Spidey
remarks that Logan is "on so many teams" (this was written as a reference to his being on the Avengers, but it can't work that
way; Spidey must know about Logan's being on all the X-Men teams somehow). Logan catches up with Spidey at Patterson's
home and the two defeat the threat, causing an explosion. Logan calls SHIELD in to wrap up. Someone resembling Dr. Doom
materializes in Latveria. We see green trees and a full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #3 (1-3)
The same night as M/TU3 2 (1-18). Dr. Strange detects the entry of "Dr. Doom" into his plane of existence. Full moon.
Tuesday, January 6

mansion these last few weeks" - perhaps since X 165. Green trees in New York and autumn colors at Westchester.
JUBILEE #1 (1-4)
It must be the same day as M/TU3 2 (19-23). Jubilee arrives in L.A. to live with her Aunt Hope. Green grass and trees in L.A.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #3 (4-21)
The day after M/TU3 3 (1-3). The FF live in the Baxter Building, and Johnny has a date (a gallery opening) with Kourtney
"tonight," so it may be between FOUR 12 and FOUR 13 (6-11). He and Ben get in a fight over a practical joke, then "Dr.
Doom" shows up and battles the FF. Realizing that something is amiss, "Dr. Doom" leaves, then Dr. Strange arrives and leads
the team to where "Dr. Doom" is. After another skirmish, "Dr. Doom" reveals himself to be an alternate universe Tony Stark.
Patterson materializes in upstate New York, where Hulk is. Moon Knight and Hulk cameo.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #4 (1-18)
The same day as M/TU3 3 (4-21). It's a mail delivery day. The alternate Stark robs the FF of their powers and leaves after
Strange shows up. Johnny ends up in the hospital with a broken collarbone. The alternate Stark goes to Stark Enterprises to seek
a power source and, detecting Patterson, jets upstate and saves the boy from the Hulk.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #8 (15-22)
The day after NX 8 (1-14). Emma suggests that Kevin see a therapist. Laurie and Josh go to have dinner with her mom.
Suspecting that the ghost is a student who died in "Magneto's" attack, Kim and the other New Mutants try to find clues in a
nearby cemetery. There they encounter a specter of a boy who teleports them away. It is a school day at Xavier's. "It's
freezing" and jackets are worn at the Institute. Bare trees and green grass and brush at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #9 (1-9)
The same day as NX 8 (15-22). The kids return to the cemetery, where they are found by Dani and Shan. Dani tells the group
that the ghost is Jeffrey Garrett. Laurie and Josh end their date and Rahne breaks things off with Josh. Green trees at
Westchester. Full moon.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #8 (8:4)
One day. Warren Worthington visits disabled children.
X-MEN: KITTY PRYDE - SHADOW & FLAME #1 (2-14)
The day after X:KPSF 1 (1). This segment occurs "just" after Logan returns to the Institute from W:S 5 (24); I have Logan's
return in M/TU3 2 (9-23). At the airport outside Tokyo, Kitty meets Ryoko from the Japanese Department of Supernatural
Sciences and they go to their headquarters. It's revealed that a ninja group called the Path of Destiny stole Puff from the LDSS
and sent the note. Kitty goes to her hotel room, sends an e-mail to Wolverine and tries to call Yukio, but no one answers. She
decides to hit the town. Green grass and trees in Tokyo.
Wednesday, January 7
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #4 (19-20)
The early morning after M/TU3 4 (1-18). This segment occurs after M/TU3 12-FB (7-8). Titannus observes everything and is
interrupted by Sunfire. We see snow flurries in the air and accumulation on bare treetops in New York.
JUBILEE #1 (5-13)
The day after JUB 1 (1-4). On Jubilee's first day at her new school, she meets a nerd named Meg Devereux and they go the mall
afterward. There, Jubilee attracts the attention of popular guy Dale Spangler and his jealous girlfriend Missy Lopez. Jubilee is
introduced as "a new student" to the rest of her class, meaning that the school year has already started at Payton-Noble High.
Green trees in L.A.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #5
The same day as M/TU3 4 (19-20). This story must occur after UX 454 and probably after X 165 (9-24). Sunfire battles
Titannus and Spidey battles Cardiac at dawn of a school day. Storm catches X-23 watching security monitors at the Institute and
notices a blip worth investigating. Sue insists that Reed get some sleep after being up all night. Peter Parker reports to work late
and he gets a phone call at school from Patterson, who is held captive by the alternate Stark. Parker has Reed trace the call and
he heads to Stark's place, only to run into X-23. The two fight and are caught by the alternate Stark. Cyclops is seen in a "third
fitting" for his Reload costume. Johnny is noted as being released from the hospital. Green trees in New York.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #6
The same day as M/TU3 5. This story occurs between CA5 32 and FOES 4 (6-21). According to the X-Men Handbook, this
segment occurs before UX 455 (5-15). Fury is probably here before the Enemy of the State storyline. Spidey calls Cap "Steve"
and refers to himself as "a fellow Avenger" - this may be a reference to Spidey's previous stint as an Avenger, not as a New
Avenger. "It's been a while" since Cap last saw Natasha, which was probably in A 503. Cap sees Nick Fury and Black Widow
aboard the Helicarrier and they discuss the Diamondback LMD. As Spidey and X-23 battle the alternate Stark, the energy
signature from the ersatz Stark's work is picked up by SHIELD and Reed Richards notes the threat. Cap and Natasha join
Spidey and X-23 in battling the alternate Stark (apparently from an alternate future), who notes an upcoming "Titannus War."
Patterson explodes and winds up in Canada with the Wendigo. SHIELD captures the ersatz Stark and Dr. Strange makes note of
it. Titannus leaves the fallen Sunfire. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #7 (1-2)
The same night as M/TU3 6. Titannus returns to his ship and his beloved, Amissa, who is in stasis.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #9 (10-20)
The day after NX 9 (1-9). David and Noriko have a talk, Dani and Josh have a talk, and Emma takes Kevin to a psychiatrist to
have a talk. "That night," the New Mutants hold a seance and call forth Jeffrey, who tells his tale and repents. This story is
supposed to occur during the semester before NX 10, since in that issue Kevin notes that Josh and Laurie "started dating" "last
semester," but since this storyline must occur after Christmas break, Kevin may have meant "last term." Dani still thinks that it
was Magneto that destroyed the Institute in NX 9-FB. Kim Alleyne is "fourteen" It is a school day at Xavier's. Green grass and
trees at Westchester.
X-MEN: KITTY PRYDE - SHADOW & FLAME #1 (15-24)
The day after X:KPSF 1 (12-14). Kitty is attacked by four thugs in Tokyo. She beats them up, and Lockheed arrives and stops
them from attacking again. The thugs go to a nearby bar, where they meet the ninja who hired them. After killing the thugs, the
ninja talks on the phone with Nao. Green grass and trees in Japan.
X-MEN: KITTY PRYDE - SHADOW & FLAME #2
The same day as X:KPSF 1 (15-24). At JDSS headquarters, Ryoko talks to her boss, Miyashiro. Kitty is woken from a dream by
a phone call and goes to the Tokyo Tower, where she's attacked by ninjas. All escape but one, who kills himself. After cleaning
up and changing clothes, Kitty goes to the JDSS headquarters to ask Ryoko more questions. Kitty and Ryoko chat. Meanwhile,
Lockheed finds a device under the bed in Kitty's hotel room. Kitty leaves the JDSS headquarters and finds Lockheed, who's
been knocked unconscious by the device. Kitty is then approached by Nao, who's wearing an Ogun mask. Green trees in Tokyo.

leading them, to get them a second sword, the Silver Samurai's. Nao agrees. Before she leaves, Kitty visits the dragons. At
JDSS headquarters, Ryoko talks to her boss. At the Clan Yashida compound, Kitty asks Keniuchio to borrow his sword and
challenges him to a duel. Kitty wins, but she had to "kill" him to do it. In the underground lair of the Path of Destiny, Nao is
informed of the Silver Samurai's "death," then plans to betray Kitty.
X-MEN: KITTY PRYDE - SHADOW & FLAME #5
The same day as X:KPSF 4. This story must occur before ROGUE3 7 (1-12) and perhaps before A4 1. In the underground lair
of the Path of Destiny, Lockheed wakes up and plays with Puff while Nao prepares for Kitty's return, but she's already there
disguised as a ninja. They decide to trade the dragons for the Silver Samurai's sword, but Kitty shows up again. The first Kitty
is revealed as Ryoko in disguise by an image inducer. Nao is pissed, then the Silver Samurai shows up alive. This really pisses
Nao off, so she starts a big fight. Nao eventually escapes and the Path of Destiny ninjas are captured. Silver Samurai gets his
sword back and the dragons are freed. Later, Kitty gives the sword the Path of Destiny had to the JDSS. They give her some
plane tickets and she heads back to the states.

One day, probably shortly before X 166. A mutant woman gets into an argument with Butterfly-Bore at the mutant settlement at
the South Pole.
Friday, January 9
JUBILEE #2 (1-11)
The day after JUB 1 (14-23). The reference to "school tomorrow" is a joke. On a school day, kids pick on Meg and Dale tells
Jubilee that he and Missy broke up. That night, Aunt Hope gives Jubilee at moped. My guess is that this is the Monday
following JUB 1 (14-23). It is indeed "not 24 hours" before JUB 2 (15-22). Green trees in L.A.

One day, after FOUR 14-FB (2:3-2:4). It is "four days" before FOUR 13 (6-11). Philip Masters greets Alicia after an eye

space station attached to it. They enter the vessel and discover an alien language written on the walls and a cryogenic tube
containing a figure.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #14/2 - FB (1-2)
The same day as AAF2 13/2 (1-2). It is "two months" before AAF2 14/2 (3-8). Cinglet and Xennon pull the cryogenic tube onto
their spaceship and examine it further. Their ship's computer quickly translates the writing found in the ancient vessel, and they
read it to find that the figure placed in the cryogenic tube was placed there as punishment for a crime. Just then, some sort of
energy/meteor shower sweeps through the region, striking Cinglet and Xennon's spaceship.
Tuesday, January 13
FOUR #13 (6-11)
One day, "four days" after FOUR 13 (1-5). It is "two months" after FOUR 12 and thus at least two months before FOES 1.
Kourtney is planning to move to L.A., so she likely appears here after M/HOL '04 1/3 (9:3-9:5) and M/TU3 3 (4-21), and after
this Johnny probably dates Sabrina, as noted in W2 22. "It's been years since [Ben] and Alicia dated officially." The FF host a
"Welcome Back" reception to announce that "after a year of retrenchment...the Fantastic Four's corporate, philanthropic, and
educational divisions are back in business." Reed notes that "it's been a trying, confusing 12 months for Fantastic Enterprises";
this reference may be to the previous calendar year, much of which was marked by the Latveria debacle and the embezzlement.
Despite the business relaunch, the FF will continue to struggle to get ahead, as noted in FF 527. Reed also notes that he has "an
expedition scheduled for later this month" (which is seen in pages 15-16). Sue has put teaching on hold while getting business
affairs back in order, but she hopes to return to it. Cap and Iron Man appear. Alicia's body rejects her new eyes and Philip
Masters tells the surgeon he's blackmailing to proceed with another operation "tomorrow." We see green trees and roses in
bloom, but they may be topical or may be interpreted as being in an indoor nursery.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #10
One day. Logan must appear here before W3 20 (2:3-2:4). It is a school day at the Xavier Institute. It's the first day of an
elective class on leadership and tactics taught by Cyclops. Feeling a bit useless, David sees Emma Frost to investigate the limits
of his power. Emma tells him that a mental block prevents him from retaining knowledge he absorbs. David decides to have
Emma lift the blocks, but instead she and Dani show him the possible consequences of his unfettered power through a mental
illusion. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #11
The same day as NX 10. Thanks to the vision shown to him by Dani and Emma, David understands his mental block and
chooses to keep it. "Later," Kevin tells Josh to break up with Laurie or he'll tell the whole school about his relationship with
Rahne"last semester" (presumably in NX 6).
NEW INVADERS #1
One day, long enough after INV3 0 for attacks on Mazikhandar to occur "at regular intervals." With Jim Hammond, the Invaders
stop an attack of the Pterorists, an army of insectoid creatures, in Mazikhandar. Tara gets clothes. Thin Man explains his
mission to stop the Axis Mundi from replacing world leaders with synthezoid replicas by using the Invaders and a warship he
built called the Infiltrator.

Man asks Hammond to be tactical leader of the team and Walker and Chapman argue. The Blazing Skull notes that he "spent the
last decade in a Saudi prison camp." A dead, captive Pterorist sends a signal that brings the Pterorists to the presumably cloaked
ship. The horde is led by the Axis Mundi.
NEW INVADERS #3
The same day as IN3 2. The Invaders battle the Pterorists and the Axis Mundi around "11:17" Yemen time. The Pterorists are
defeated and the Axis Mundi escape, and USAgent is wounded in the melee. After securing the Infiltrator, the group reconnoiter

Friday, January 16
JUBILEE #2 (15-22)
The day after JUB 2 (12-14). It must be more than just "two days" before JUB 3 (14-17). It is indeed "not 24 hours" after JUB 2
(1-11). Jubilee makes a move on Dale, but he tells her that he and Missy got back together. Jubilee gives advice to Meg. That
night, Aunt Hope comes home hiding a wound she received at her "work." Green trees in L.A.
UNCANNY X-MEN #455 (5-15)
The day ("24 hours") after UX 455 (1-4). It is "not long" after XX 4. According to the X-Men Handbook, this segment occurs
after M/TU3 6. The XSE team practices in the Danger Room and X-23 disrupts the training when she believes Logan to be in
danger. Wolverine receives a phone call from old flame Mary McKenna and heads to Alberta, while the rest of the team are sent
to Spain. Sebastian Shaw is noted as still being in the hospital following the "recent" events of UX 454. Cyclops notes that X-
23 is "new" to the Institute. It is a school day at the Institute (and X-23 is supposed to be in Karma's class). Green trees in Spain

go after them. Snow in Alberta.
UNCANNY X-MEN #457 (1-16)
It is either the same day as UX 456 or the next day, depending on how long it takes the Hauk'ka to get from Alberta to the
Savage Land. It is "days" before UX 457 (17-22). The Hauk'ka imprison Kurt and Bishop in the Savage Land, where they meet
captive Saurians. The Hauk'ka discover that Kaidan's telepathy has triggered a genetic remodeling in Rachel, who believes
herself to be Hauk'ka. The captive Storm causes severe weather in the Savage Land and the Hauk'ka hatch a plan to use Rachel
and Ororo to cause global hyper-storms. Psylocke and X-23 arrive in the Savage Land. The Hauk'ka have been in the Savage
Land for "months."

One day. This story occurs shortly after CA5 8-FB (12:3), a "week" after CA5 1-FB (12-18), "months" after CA4 32, and "five
years" after CA5 1-FB (1-5). The intelligence community reports on the Skull's presumed death in this issue "nearly a year"
before CA5 21 (18-22). We see an old Daily Bugle headline announcing the disbanding of the Avengers, so this story must
occur after A:FINALE. Sharon Carter checks in on Cap, who notes that "it's just been a rough couple of months" - probably
references to A 500-503 and A:FINALE. Steve has a new place to live, shielded by a hologram. He is under surveillance by a
minion of the Red Skull, who now holds the Cosmic Cube. The Skull is shot dead by an assassin working for General Lukin,
who wants the Cube for himself.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #8 - FB (12:3)
Probably the same day as CA5 1. It is the "week" before CA5 8. Appearing "about three years older than he was in '76," the
Skull's assassin, the "Winter Soldier," is captured on film at Dulles Airport, where he leaves the murder weapon.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #7 - FB (18-19)
One night. It may be not be "three months" after CA5 7-FB (17); Nomad may believe it's been three months, but he's

Monroe sits in a bar outside Pittsburgh.

One day. Lucas Telling-Stone hunts down the Jumlin.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #4
Probably the day after CA5 3 (21:6-21:7). Fury (who is SHIELD head) sends Cap to Arlington National Cemetery, where
someone has destroyed the grave markers of William Naslund and Jeff Mace. There he encounters Crossbones, who says the a
Russian sent him. When strange memory flashes distract Cap in battle, Crossbones leaves. Meanwhile, SHIELD discovers the
rifle used to kill the Red Skull and detects Jack Monroe's prints on it. Using an old homing device planted on Monroe, Sharon
Carter tracks Nomad to Philadelphia and is subdued. Tony Stark is BTS. Bare and green trees and green grass in Virginia.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #5
The same night as CA5 4. Cap goes to Nick Fury aboard the Helicarrier to get some answers. Fury makes a connection to
Aleksander Lukin, a protege of Vasily Karpov. Cap relates a story about his WWII encounter with Karpov then asks for
transport to a place where he might match reality with his confusing memories. Fury refers to Cap being on ice "nearly twenty
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #6 (1)
The same night as CA5 5. Carter's assailant reports in to General Lukin.
Monday, January 19: Martin Luther King Day
JUBILEE #3 (4-13)
The day after JUB 3 (1-3). On a school day that must be Monday, Dale tells Jubilee and Meg about a fund-raising dance he's
hosting and says that he and Missy broke up again. Later that day, Jubilee counsels Charlie, who wishes he could stay out of the
gang but feels he has no options. That night, she returns a phone call from Logan, but he's too busy to talk; he's fighting ninjas
(perhaps a failed attempt by the Hand to kidnap Logan prior to their success in W3 20).
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #6 (2-21)
The day after CA5 6 (1). It is the "week" before CA5 9-FB (4-6) and CA5 9. It is "not a month" (i.e. less than a month) before
CA5 12. SHIELD agent Neal Tapper expresses concern to Fury about Sharon, who "hasn't reported in for over twenty-four
hours." Cap explores an abandoned Nazi castle in the English Channel and experiences more confusing memories. Mysteriously
sensing Sharon to be in danger, he jets to Philadelphia, where he frees Sharon in a set-up. Sharon tells Cap that she suspects her
assailant and the Skull's killer to be Bucky. The mystery assassin detonates a bomb nearby, which fully charges the cosmic cube
in Lukin's possession.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #8 - FB (4-9)
The same night as CA5 6 (2-21). Cap and Sharon try to save lives in the aftermath of the explosion. Cap encounters AIM
soldiers trying to retrieve their technology from the ruins and faces their Modoc Squad.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #8 - FB (13-16)
The same night as CA5 8-FB (4-9). Cap battles the Modoc Squad and is assisted by someone he makes out to be Bucky before
the mystery man disappears.
Tuesday, January 20
JUBILEE #3 (14-17)
The day after JUB 3 (4-13). It must be more than just "two days" after JUB 2 (15-22). After school on a day that must be
Tuesday, Shane tries to intimidate Jubilee into stopping counseling Charlie. That night, Jubilee checks in on a convalescing
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #8
The day after CA5 8-FB (13-16). It is a "week" after CA5 8-FB (12:3). Aboard the Helicarrier, Fury tells Sharon of Tapper's
death and briefs Cap on the Winter Soldier, a KGB secret weapon who has spent decades in suspended animation except for
times he'd be needed as an assassin. Fury believes him to be Bucky. Identifying Lukin as the prime suspect behind the bombing,
Fury assigns Cap and Sharon to a strike force to take him down.
SABRETOOTH v2 #1
One day, "several weeks" after Sabretooth's last appearance, which I interpret as being X 164, with Creed having survived
Logan's attack. This story may occur after AF3 12. The Coast Guard ice cutter Polar Sun receives a distress call from the
isolated Isle Dupree - a woman claims a monster is loose on the island, and is killed while on the radio. The cutter heads for the
island, where Sabretooth stands over the woman's body. He writes "Leave or Die" on the outside of the house, and stalks off.
When the Coast Guard arrive, they find massacred men everywhere, and follow some chimney smoke to a cabin where two boys
are locked in the basement. Hamilton, the landing party leader, descends to help the boys and the rest of the men are attacked and
killed by Sabretooth. Back at the dock, Sasquatch arrives to offer assistance. We see snow around Lake Superior. It is "winter,"
SABRETOOTH v2 #2
The same day as SABRE2 1. Sasquatch orders the Coast Guard men to stay aboard their ship and begins searching the island.
He is attacked by Sabretooth and, as they battle, Sasquatch falls into a pit set up by Sabretooth. Meanwhile, the Coast Guard get
fed up waiting, and another landing party goes to retrieve the first. This landing party is quickly dispatched by a looming,
shadowy creature, and later, back at the cabin, a shadowy creature approaches the front door. We see a blizzard on Lake
SABRETOOTH v2 #3 (1-15)
The same day as SABRE2 2. Hamilton machine-guns the creature at the front door, who is revealed to be a badly injured
Sasquatch. Smitty, the only survivor of the second landing party, makes his way back to the ship as Sabretooth watches and
grins. Back at the ship, the remaining Coast Guard men are attacked and massacred, and Smitty hears the battle from the dock. As
Sabretooth surveys the carnage and leaves the ship, he finds Smitty's corpse in the snow; he shot himself.
FOUR #13 (12-14)
One night, "three days" after Alicia's bandage from her second operation is removed. Ben tries to call Alicia. Alicia's body
rejects the second pair of transplanted eyes and the surgeon tells Philip that more resilient eyes are needed. Full moon.
Wednesday, January 21
JUBILEE #3 (18-22)
The morning after JUB 3 (14-17). On a school day that must be Wednesday, Shane again confronts Jubilee again, who tells him
about Charlie's good grades and desire to go to college. At school, Dale reschedules the dance for the following week, and that
night, Shane lets Charlie out of his gang, but not before revealing his mutant powers.
SABRETOOTH v2 #3 (16-20)
The morning after SABRE2 3 (1-15). As Hamilton stitches Sasquatch's wounds, Sasquatch explains that he's alone and has
been tracking Sabretooth for several weeks. Hamilton believes that Sabretooth is hunting the men of Isle Dupree, but Sasquatch
reveals that Sabretooth is only after one creature, the Wendigo.
SABRETOOTH v2 #4
The same day as SABRE2 3 (16-20). Wendigo attacks the cabin, and Sasquatch (whose "enhanced metabolism" has healed most
of his wounds) attacks him, driving them both out into the storm. Sabretooth shows up at the cabin and explains that he's been
hunting and terrorizing the Wendigo for weeks, driving him far from his natural habitat. It's the Wendigo who's been attacking
and killing the islanders and the Coast Guard out of instinct and self-preservation. Sasquatch makes an impassioned plea to
Wendigo to let him help get him home, but Wendigo mauls Sasquatch savagely. As Wendigo sees a second ship approaching
across the lake, Sabretooth finds and attacks him and the two plunge off a cliff and through the ice. They sink through the
freezing water, still fighting. Later, back at the cabin, Sabretooth shows up and tells Hamilton that it's all over and walks off
wearing a crude coat made of the Wendigo's skin. Full moon.
FOUR #13 (15-17)
Probably the day after FOUR 13 (12-14). It is later in the month of FOUR 13 (6-11). Reed, Ben, and Johnny leave on an
expedition to another dimension while Sue stays home to take "Franklin to soccer practice" among other things, but Sue is
kidding. Daredevil finds a corpse in the Hudson whose eyes have been cut out.
Thursday, January 22
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #12
One day, shortly after NX 11 and shortly before NX 13. This story probably occurs before W3 21 (14-23). The New Mutants
score a win in a field day mission that resembles a mission from David's dream in NX 10-11. David avoids Noriko for the "third
time this week." When Josh kisses Laurie on the cheek, Kevin tells Emma about Josh's tryst with Rahne. The news causes Dani
to be enraged at Rahne and she has a talk with Josh. Shamed, Rahne leaves the Institute. Brokenhearted, Laurie drives Josh
away with her fear pheromones and rebels against her mother. Emma and Scott ask Sean Garrison to be the Institute's guidance
counselor and he agrees to join, not "this semester," but "at the start of the new school year." Green grass and trees at
FOUR #13 (18-22)
The day after FOUR 13 (15-17). It is a day in which Franklin has homework to do. Possessed by the Puppet Master, Sue leaves
her kids at the Baxter Building and heads to Masters' place while Alicia undergoes a third operation. The narration mentions
that "a hunter's moon" is out.
FOUR #14 (1-21:3)
The same night as FOUR 13 (18-22). It is "a month" after FOUR 14-FB (2:3-2:4). Alicia finds Sue and, deducing her father's
scheme, tries to save Sue, who explains that Puppet Master has been driven insane by years of exposure to his radioactive clay.
Alicia defeats her father by fashioning a doll of him and crushing its hands; the doctor notes that "it will take months" for
Masters to regain the use of his hands, so this segment must occur "months" before FOES 1. Daredevil cameos. The full moon
shown here is probably the one after that shown in FOUR 14-FB (2:1-2:2).
Friday, January 23
FOUR #14 (21:4-22)
The day after FOUR 14 (1-21). The Thing checks up on Alicia, whose latest eyes will give out soon.
SHE-HULK v4 #13 - FB (16:4-17:1)
One day, shortly after S-H4 13-FB (16:2-16:3). This flashback probably occurs before S-H4 6-FB (1:1). Seductra subdues
Starfox with a potion and takes him to the Thanos dupe, who carries out Thanos' plan to give Eros and himself false memories of
Eros influencing Thanos' decision to revere Death. Starfox is back in his classic costume.
Saturday, January 24
UNCANNY X-MEN #457 (17-22)
One day, "days" after UX 457 (1-16). The Hauk'ka release Kurt and Bishop to hunt them for sport. They encounter Psylocke
and X-23, who introduce them to their new allies, Ka-Zar and the Savage Land Mutates.
UNCANNY X-MEN #458
The same day as UX 457 (17-22). As Ka-Zar and the Mutates battle the Hauk'ka, Psylocke uses her teke knife to restore
Bishop's and Nightcrawler's powers. The X-Men retreat. The mutating Rachel uses her power on Storm to trigger some nasty
UNCANNY X-MEN #459
The same day as UX 458. Storm causes global hyperstorms that cause blizzards everywhere, including the Xavier Institute,
where the Astonishing team, Havok (still with his cowl), and Iceman monitor the situation. Brainchild offers to help stop Storm
and tricks the heroes into letting him take control before X-23 decks him. Storm and Rachel themselves synch up to stop the
hyperstorms. The Hauk'ka realize their mistake and make peace with the X-Men and the people of the Savage Land. The X-
Men may remain in the Savage Land for some time after this.
Sunday, January 25
NEW WARRIORS v3 #3 - FB (16:1)
One day. As shown in a newspaper, Zachary Smith's experiments only work for himself; his unspoilable yogurt went bad as
soon as it left his presence and proves deadly in an independent study. Taylor stock plummets.
THUNDERBOLTS #101 - FB (3:3-4, 5:6-6, 9-10:2, 13, 16, 19:4-19:5)
One day (in real time). These flashbacks occur after A/TB 6 (23), shortly before TB2 1, and "several months" before TB 101.
Zemo invites Melissa from ESU to a Manhattan apartment that exists outside of time, created by the alien gems Zemo took from
Moonstone. They spend time in this timeless place and Zemo appears to earn Melissa's trust and love. She notes that Abe
invited her to join a team of Thunderbolts he's re-forming and that she declined, but Zemo urges her to accept when he asks
again. Green trees in New York.
Monday, January 26
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #9 - FB (8-9)
One night. Fury tells Steve he can't get clearance for the op against Lukin and that the authorities consider Jack Monroe to be
the prime suspect in the Red Skull's murder and the Philly bombing. Fury proposes an unofficial attack on Lukin's corporate
nation in Asia "in two days." Steve requests that Sharon not be assigned to the mission because of Tapper's death. We see coats
and jackets in New York.
Tuesday, January 27
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #9 - FB (4-6)
The day after CA5 9-FB (8-9). CA5 6 (2-21) is referred to as having occurred "last week." Sharon argues with Steve about
going on the mission "tomorrow" and about Bucky being the Winter Soldier. Green trees and light clothing in New York.
JUBILEE #4 (1-5)
One day, "a couple of days" before JUB 4 (20-22). Aunt Hope confirms that Jubilee can attend the dance.
Wednesday, January 28
JUBILEE #4 (6-19)
It must be the day after JUB 4 (1-5). It must be more than just "a few weeks" after RUN 17. At school, Missy catches Dale
flirting with another girl. Jubilee learns that Miss Kingsley's car has been stolen, and asks Shane for help tracking it down. The
two get into a gang shootout and reveal their mutant powers to each other, but have no luck returning the car. Meanwhile, Aunt
Hope and Brad wreak vengeance on a mysterious criminal organization. Later, Hope decides to look into the missing car.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #9
The night of the day after CA5 9-FB (4-6). CA5 6 (2-21) is referred to as having occurred "last week." It is "two weeks" before
CA5 15. Crossbones breaks into a secret government re-education facility and liberates a brainwashed prisoner - Synthia
Schmidt, daughter of the Red Skull. Meanwhile, Cap, Sharon, Nick, and a special ops team launch their attack on Lukin's Asian
nation (where it is daytime). The team encounters Lukin dealing with U.S. government officials and when the team cannot
justify their attack with concrete evidence about Lukin's schemes, the mission is scrubbed. Cap is furious.
Thursday, January 29
JUBILEE #4 (20-22)
The day after JUB 4 (6-19). It is "a couple of days" after JUB 4 (1-5). Jubilee arrives at school to see the car returned, and when
she bursts into Miss Kingsley's office to tell her, she finds her kissing the principal. Meanwhile, Aunt Hope and Brad suit up for
an all-out assault.
The same day as JUB 4 (20-22). Jubilee trades her silence about Principal Avery's and Miss Kingsley's fling for her release from
the peer counselor program. Shane asks her to the dance that night and she accepts, but when the time comes, they both decide
that the dance is lame, and go hang out on their own. At the dance (which I interpret as a year-end prom), Dale, single again,
asks Meg to dance. Meanwhile, Aunt Hope and Brad carve a bloody swath through a mysterious criminal organization. That
night, Jubilee brings Shane back to Aunt Hope's mansion, and just as they're about to kiss, the doorbell rings; it's Wolverine.
The Christmas decorations at the mall must be topical.
JUBILEE #6 (1-16)
The same day as JUB 5. Jubilee introduces Shane and Logan tells him to keep his hands to himself. As Shane goes to leave,
Brad bursts through the door and Jubilee demands an explanation. He tells her Hope was an assassin who was retiring, that she
got tricked into a one more job "last week," and that they'd gone to tell her boss that she was out for good. He explains how they
split up a hail of gunfire breaks the windows. Wolverine attacks a horde of henchmen in suits and bulletproof vests. Hope
crashes through a wall on a motorbike, bringing more goons with her. Hope tells Jubilee that Jubilee's parents had disowned
Hope over her career choice, and that's why they never told Jubilee about her. Brad is shot. Hope flirts with Wolverine as they
both fight goons, then she gets scratched by a bullet. The shooter offers Hope the chance to stand down and come back. Hope
agrees to negotiate only after the others are safely away. Logan, Jubilee, Brad, and Shane leave. Wolverine tells Jubilee and
Shane to get Brad to a hospital, then he doubles back to try to get Hope, but the house blows up. Waning crescent moon.
Friday, January 30
JUBILEE #6 (17-22)
The day after JUB 6 (1-16). A school day. Probably after midnight, Jubilee cries amid the wreckage and at Brad's hospital
bedside, where a policeman tells her they've found no sign of Hope. "The next morning," Jubilee and Logan leave Shane, Meg,
and Dale and return to the Institute. A jogger discovers Aunt Hope behind some bushes with her right lower leg mostly blown
off and sparks coming from the exposed mechanics.
WOLVERINE v3 #20 (2:3-2:4)
One day, "weeks" after W3 20 (1-2). This segment must occur after NX 10. Ichiro sits on a bench in the park, in grief that no
one seems to be able to help him recover his son. Not knowing to whom to turn to, he calls up Logan.
Saturday, January 31
WOLVERINE v3 #20 (3-12)
One day shortly after W3 20 (2:3-2:4). It is "one week" before W3 20 (13-14). Wolverine is in Nagasaki, carrying two duffle
bags which are supposed to be filled with the money the kidnappers want. He meets the kidnappers in a graveyard, and gives
them the duffle bags, which the kidnappers discover is not filled with money after all. Wolverine starts to kick their butt, but
then un-dead ninjas pop out of the ground, and Logan figures out this is a trap, and he's been set up. The Gorgon appears and
defeats Wolverine. As Logan blacks out, the Gorgon says they killed the boy. Logan is taken away to be brainwashed. Green
trees in Nagasaki.
Sunday, February 1
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #11
One day. A packet arrives at Steve Rogers' secret residence and Steve views its contents - evidence showing that the Winter
Soldier is Bucky. Steve calls Fury and tells him to come over with Sharon.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #12
The same day as CA5 11. It is "not a month" (i.e. less than a month) after CA5 6 (2-21). Falcon now has a mustache and goatee,
which he may be growing and shaving periodically throughout the next year. At the New York offices of Kronas Corporation,
Lukin uses the Cosmic Cube to persuade a group of corporate executives to hand over their companies to him. When Lukin
begins to show stress from being in contact with the Cube, his friend Leon notes the danger of the Cube and Lukin beats him.
Fury and Sharon visit Steve and review the Winter Soldier files. Fury takes the files and Sharon tries to tell Cap that the Winter
Soldier is no longer Bucky and that he may have to be killed. When Sharon fails to reach him, Fury contacts the Falcon, who
encounters Cap while out on patrol. Green trees in New York.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #13 (1-4)
The same night as CA5 12. Falcon talks to Cap at Steve's secret home and Cap decides to try to save Bucky. Seeing the severity
of Leon's injuries, Lukin sees the Cube as a curse and sends it away with the Winter Soldier.
Monday, February 2
NEW WARRIORS v3 #3 - FB (16:2-16:3)
One day. As noted in a newspaper, Zachary Smith's son, Microbe, is found to be mutant who can talk to germs. Smith disowns
his son and moves to Scotland to prove world wrong.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #13 (5-20)
The day after CA5 13 (1-4). Early in the morning, Cap, Falcon, and Iron Man storm an AID warehouse, battle a prototype robot,
and obtain the energy signature of the Cube. With it, they track the Cube to a research facility in West Virginia where Lukin is
having it stored in a vault. Citing a failed takeover of his company by Kronas "last month," Tony cannot go with Cap and Falcon
for fear of the mission being seen as corporate warfare and losing his company; so the fact that Cap and Sam jet to West Virginia
in a jet labeled "Stark" seems ill-advised (duh). Sam thinks it's a bad move not to have Iron Man as backup; no mention is made
of the other Avengers. Cap decides against getting Fury to help because of the attendant red tape. While on route, Cap is
radioed by Sharon and Cap tells her he's going to Cube's location to find the Winter Soldier. Cap and Falcon land and as they
approach the research facility, the Winter Soldier gets them in the sight of his rifle and fires. Green trees in New York and West
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #14
The same night as CA5 13 (5-20). This story must occur before W3 38 and thus before W3 36. It must also occur before
PULSE 12, given D-Man's comment about the Winter Soldier in PULSE 13. It is before CA5 18-FB and "six months" before
CA5 16 (5-22). It is a "year" before CA5 26. The Winter Soldier misses his target and Cap chases him inside the facility while Falcon and the newly arrived Sharon Carter and SHIELD fight Lukin's forces outside. Cap and the Winter Soldier fight and Cap tries to get his foe to realize who he really is. In the scuffle, the Cosmic Cube is loosed and it returns the Winter Soldier's memories as Bucky. Bucky grabs the Cube and disappears. He reappears at the defunct Fort Lehigh, where he despairs his fate. Lukin is chided for the failure with the Cube by the Red Skull, who's been co-habitating Lukin's body, thanks to the Cube. Bare trees at Fort Lehigh.
Tuesday, February 3
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #1
One "morning." This segment occurs shortly after TB 101-FB, "two days" before TB2 2, "a couple weeks" before TB2 9-FB,
and must be more than "two months" after A/TB 6 (17-20). The Avengers are noted as being "disassembled" (presumably
meaning disbanded), so this story must occur after A:FINALE. Mach-4 has gathered Blizzard and mechanic Erik Josten and
invites Songbird to join his new Thunderbolts, for whom he's set up a headquarters at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. They all
respond to an attack on Manhattan by Fathom 5 and are joined by Genis-Vell. Sensing an attraction between Genis and Melissa,
Josten views Genis as a threat and attacks the alien hero, spontaneously growing to Atlas size. The villains get away and Abe
reports to the team's investor, Baron Von Strucker. Green grass and trees in New York.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #18 - FB
The same day as TB2 1. As Genis lay dying in the Hudson River, a cocoon of photonic energy envelops him, opening pathways
through space and time, knitting Genis back with parts of himself from the past and future. Genis has a vision of himself tearing
Wednesday, February 4
WOLVERINE v3 #20 (13-14)
One day, "one week" after W3 20 (3-12), during which time Logan is missing. It is "one month" before W3 20 (15-17). Kitty
Pryde is at Ichiro's house, questioning Ichiro and his wife. No one has heard from Logan since he went to meet with the
kidnappers. Ichiro's wife says she feels in her heart that her son is dead. Green trees in Japan.
Thursday, February 5
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #2 (1-9)
One day, "two days" after TB2 1 and "months" after TB2 17-FB (16:3). The T-Bolts battle and defeat the Wrecking Crew and
Speed Demon shows up to join the team. The Purple Man plots against the T-Bolts.
ORDER v2 #2 - FB - FB (1/2:20)
One day. Becky Ryan has a bulimic episode.
Friday, February 6
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #2 (10-22)
Probably the day after TB2 2 (1-9). This storyline must occur after W2 20 (13-14). Reed Richards appears; a reporter notes his
being "the leader of the beleaguered Fantastic Four," and a U.N. delegate notes his "recent escapades in Latveria," clues that this
segment occurs after FF 511. Seeking justice for the terrorism of Fathom Five, the T-Bolts crash Namor's address to the U.N.
(whose building is noted as having been rebuilt after the Kang War). Seeking Namor as part of the Great Game, Joystick,
Polestar, and Tremolo attack, under observation of the Referee. When the Gaming Council activates a two-minute warning for a
failsafe explosive, the heroes try to jam the transmission and offer Joystick a spot in the T-Bolts. Their efforts fail, though, and
the U.N. building explodes. Namor is in his classic trunks.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #3
The same day as TB2 2 (10-22). This story must occur sometime after PPTSS2 20, given that Spidey suggests that his webbing
is natural ("I'm probably gonna need a truckload of Twinkies to replenish my web-supply now"). Subby may appear here (now
recovered) after INV3 9. The T-Bolts, along with Subby, Reed Richards, Spidey, and Code Blue, evacuate the UN Building and
keep it from collapsing. Radioactive Man arrives to absorb the radiation leak from the explosion and is offered membership in
the T-Bolts. Meanwhile, Atlantean troops battle Fathom Five and the new Swordsman skewers Baron Von Strucker.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #4
The same day as TB2 3. Strucker is saved by the death spore virus in him. Wolverine, brainwashed by the Dawn of the White
Light, shows up and attacks Strucker. Caught in the Hydra civil war, Swordsman defends Strucker, who gets away. Swordsman
leaves Logan and reports to the Purple Man (who must be here between ALIAS 28 and A4 1). None of this fight actually comes
to public attention, and SHIELD manages to miss the whole thing. Songbird recovers in the hospital and Captain Marvel appears
in a glowing cocoon in the Atlantic. As Jenkins meets with Warbird (back in classic costume again) to ask for clearance for
Joystick and Speed Demon, Fathom Five attacks. It is warm enough in New York for dining al fresco.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #5
The same night as TB2 4. The Thunderbolts gather to battle Fathom Five, with Jenkins having to don his old Beetle armor to
participate. As the battle rages, a fleet of Hydra ships appears in the skies over Manhattan.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #6
The same night as TB2 5. It is "a few days" before TB2 7. This story probably occurs before W3 20 (15-17). Strucker, noting
that he is "in a contentious struggle to control my organization," seeks to foment chaos with the Hydra attack on Manhattan,
which costs hundreds of lives. The New Warriors, Power Pack, Spidey, and Cap join the battle as Warbird and the Thunderbolts
save the city from destruction by all but one of a set of nuclear bombs planted by Hydra. Genis presumably rises from the dead,
starts calling himself Photon, and redirects the fallout from the last bomb into a spatial rift. The Thunderbolts learn that Mach IV
was taking money from Strucker to finance the team, which turns out to be a set-up and Speed Demon is revealed as Strucker's
spy on the team, but among the public, the new Thunderbolts are hailed as heroes. "It's Wednesday."
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #9 - FB - FB
The same night as TB2 6. Under the sea, the Atlantean army escorts the captured Llyron.
Saturday, February 7
WOLVERINE v3 #22 - FB
One day, before W3 20 (15-17) and probably after TB2 6. Defeated by the Thunderbolts, Strucker must have acquiesced to the
Gorgon's insinuation into Hydra and the civil war is ended. Gorgon and Strucker brainwash Logan, probably to reprogram him
to follow mainstream Hydra rather than just the splinter faction that was allied with Gorgon.
Sunday, February 8
NEW INVADERS #4
One day. Namor is still in his classic trunks. After terrorists attack a gay pride rally in London that is attended by Roger Aubrey,
Hammond, Tara, Jacqueline, and Joe join Roger at Falsworth Manor. That night, what appears to be the ghost of her dead son
visits Jacqueline and she disappears.
NEW INVADERS #6 - FB
Probably the same day as INV3 4. U.S., British, and Atlantean troops wage war on insurgents and Pterorists in Mazikhadar.
NEW INVADERS #5
The same night as INV3 4. Jacqueline encounters her demonic baby grandson while the Invaders fight off Baroness Blood and
her vampiric minions. The Torch asks Aubrey to resume command of the V-Battalion on a temporary basis while he remains
with the Invaders.
Monday, February 9
NEW INVADERS #6
The day after INV3 6-FB. It is "months" after INV3 0. This story must occur shortly after W3 22-FB; the Invaders have heard
rumors of Logan being brainwashed, but apparently have not been notified officially by SHIELD. Baron Von Strucker
dispatches Wolverine to kill Professor Eckhardt so that the secrets of the Pterorists do not fall into enemy hands. Logan kills
Atlantean advisor Sulumor and attacks U.S.Agent, Namor (now in his black and gold costume), and Blazing Skull, who have just
arrested Eckhardt. Walker ignores an order from Thin Man to leave Namor at the mercy of Logan and the Invaders succeed in
evacuating the scene with both Namor and Eckhardt. Hydra scrubs Logan's mission.
ORDER v2 #2 - FB (22:1)
One day. Becky Ryan makes an adult video.
Tuesday, February 10
NEW INVADERS #7
The day after INV3 6. The Invaders have reunited aboard the Infiltrator and have been trying to track Wolverine since
"yesterday." Namor is bandaged up and "will be on his feet in a few days." Jim Hammond takes over the Invaders. Thin Man
tries to extract information about the Axis Mundi from Agent Axis, who Professor Eckhardt was forced to resurrect. Captain
America arrives on the Infiltrator to shut down Thin Man's operation.
NEW INVADERS #8
The same day as INV3 7. In Antarctica, Merrano's men prepare a warhead to melt the ice caps and cause global flooding. Cap
and the Invaders arrive and battle them. Union Jack is injured and Tara is revealed to be a plant whose programmed mission is to
activate the warhead. Through her, the Invaders receive a recorded message from the Red Skull.
NEW INVADERS #9 (1-13)
The same day as INV3 8. Unable to release Tara from the Skull's programming, Jim Hammond absorbs the tremendous heat she
generates and releases it in an explosion high above earth. Jim is killed and Tara is left catatonic. Thin Man has the Infiltrator
evacuated then uses the ship to drop the warhead into sub-dimensional space.

SHE-HULK v4 #4 - FB (2-8)
One day during an 8-month period following either A:FINALE or A 503 and during the "February" before (but probably not the
year before) S-H4 4. S-H3 2 (1-13) is referred to as having occurred "last year." A guilt-ridden Jennifer Walters works as a
volunteer with the Green Cross, helping rebuild Bone, Idaho after the destruction she caused there as She-Hulk in A3 73-75. She
calls Doc Samson for counsel. Doc is working on a "gamma changer" that should help Jen change back into She-Hulk despite
the mental blocks she developed in S-H3 12 (20-22). He tells her to go to a support group for the victims in Bone, held "every
Wednesday night." Jennifer goes to the support group meeting and hears victims' stories, including one by a woman named
Kristy, who claims her husband is missing and presumed buried in the rubble. Bare trees in Idaho.
Thursday, February 12
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #7
One day. It is "a few days" after TB2 6 and "a few days" before TB2 8 (7-21). TV pundits discuss the Thunderbolts and
Joystick crashes the Today Show (an indication that it is probably a weekday). Sanders brings Gill to a bar where they meet
Herman Schultz, who offers Sanders an opportunity to get in on a five-million-dollar score. Genis can't remember anything
about his death. The Chinese government asks Chen Lu to stay with the Thunderbolts. Killgrave prepares the new Swordsman
to join the Thunderbolts and Songbird quits.
SHE-HULK v4 #4 - FB (9-20)
The day after S-H4 4-FB (2-8). It is "months" after A3 75. Haunted by nightmares of guilt, Jennifer goes outside before dawn
and joins Green Cross head Gary Swanson in digging rubble in Bone. That morning, crews discover the body of Kristy's
husband Travis. Feeling responsible for the man's death, Jennifer goes to the sheriff's office to hand herself in, but Wanda's
spell of concealment from S-H3 2 (1-13) prevents the people there from seeing her. She discovers some shady business
involving Travis and does some investigating. That night, she enters the pit in which Travis was found, then someone uses a
backhoe to dump rubble onto her. Jen partially turns into She-Hulk to hold up the rubble and dwells on all the damage she's
done "this past year" to Bone, the Avengers, and GLK&H. She is saved and shows Gary proof that Kristy murdered her
husband. After Gary tells Jen he harbors guilt for events that led to the Hulk's creation, Jen successfully changes into She-Hulk
so that the citizens of Bone can see her come clean and apologize. We see bare trees, snow flurries, and visible breath in Idaho.

Cap and the Invaders reflect on their loss as Merrano and his followers are taken away to stand trial in Atlantis. Thin Man shows
up in Tijuana.
CAPTAIN AMERICA v5 #15 (12-22)
Perhaps the day after CA5 15 (1-11). Crossbones tortures Synthia, trying to get her to throw off SHIELD's reprogramming and
become a worthy heir to the Red Skull. That night, the de-programmed Synthia escapes her cell and joins Brock in his bed.
On the Valentine's Day prior to IHM:WOR 1 (1-10), M.J. gives Peter an iPod and Peter gives M.J. a picture frame.

The day after TB2 8 (1-6). It is "a few days" after TB2 7 and "months" after A/TB 6 (17-20). Given Namor's attire, this segment
probably occurs after INV3 9 (19-21). Melissa visits Dallas Rirordan. Monica Rambeau reacts to the news of a new Photon.
Speed Demon joins Shocker in his heist of $5 million in laundered Nazi money from a Long Island mansion. (The reference to
the Nazi money being around "for sixty years" must be topical.) Blizzard tries to stop Sanders from committing the criminal act,
but the speedster defeats him. Later, Sanders sics the police on Shocker and steals the money from him, handing it over to Abe
for use in financing the Thunderbolts. Namor (in his black and gold costume) shows up at Thunderbolts HQ and demands that
Radioactive Man stop a "plague" he unleashed in Atlantis.
NEW THUNDERBOLTS #9 - FB
The same night as TB2 8 (7-21). It is "a couple weeks" after TB2 1. The Thunderbolts discover that Radioactive Man irradiated
Llyron's gills, causing radioactivity to be transmitted throughout Atlantis. Mach-4, Atlas, and Blizzard accompany Radioactive
Man and Namor back to Atlantis so that Chen Lu can absorb the stray radiation. Unbeknownst to his teammates, Chen Lu
infuses Tamara Rahn with a radiation designed to kill Fathom Five in "several weeks." Monica Rambeau confronts Genis about
adopting the name Photon and she ends up changing her codename to Pulsar. Full moon.

the cold-stricken Reed and end up being flicked out. The experience leaves Franklin ill for real.
Tuesday, February 24
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #3 - FB (12)
One day. As Ven and his fellow draftees discuss the loved ones they've left behind in the Meta-Orb, military officers burst into

says Ashta is faster than anticipated.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #1 (1-3)
The same day as SSBRB 3-FB (12). The Korbonites hold an emergency session between the priests and the military. They have
discovered that the fallen god Ashta is coming to attack their world, and they make preparations to defend their planet. The
priests want to revive Alpha Ray, the robot construct that preceded Beta Ray Bill, but the military is hesitant to release Alpha
Ray, because his mind was unstable. The session comes to an end as Ashta arrives close enough in their solar system for the
Korbinites to launch an attack..
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #3 - FB (13-14)
The same day as SSBRB 1 (1-3). Ven and the other two soldiers are on a spaceship which is part of the fleet attacking

the favored warrior of the Korbinites. Back on the lead ship of the fleet, the military is demanding the priests get Alpha Ray to
stop attacking Bill, but the priests say it cannot be stopped. Galactus knocks Alpha Ray and Beta Ray away and starts to feed on
the Korbonites' home world. Bill tries to attack Galactus again, but Galactus has his new herald Stardust attack Bill. While the
two duel, Galactus swats Bill and devours the planet. The few remaining Korbinite space ships try to flee, but Galactus blows
many of them out of the sky. Bill's home world and solar system lie in ruin.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #5 - FB (1:1-1:5)
The same day as SSBRB 1 (12-23). It is "days" before SSBRB 5. Ven makes his way through the damaged spaceship, finally

flies off to join Skuttlebutt.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #5 - FB (1:6-2)
The same day as SSBRB 2 (1-6). It is "hours" after SSBRB 5-FB (1:1-1:5). The soldiers don't hear the sound of fighting
outside anymore, and think the battle is over. Just then, into the spaceship bursts Stardust, who starts slaughtering the
Korbinites. Ven is knocked by Stardust out the hull and into deep space. His helmet cracked, slowly losing oxygen, Ven wishes
that he'll get to see his girlfriend Sala in the next life.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #2 (7-13:1)
The same day as SSBRB 5-FB (1-2). Bill hops aboard Skuttlebutt and the ship reveals that it's keeping guard over the Meta-Orb
as it journeys through space trying to find a new planet for their people to live on. As Galactus eats the last remnants of the
Korbinites' home world, Stardust kills remaining Korbinites in the wreckage of the fleet. Stardust encounters Alpha Ray's
unconscious body and asks Galactus if he can kill the construct, but Galactus says to spare him. Stardust is shocked to see that
Galactus' body suffered a minor crack from the attack Bill launched at Galactus. Stardust flies off to hunt down Beta Ray Bill to

Thursday, February 26
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #2 - FB (18-19)
One day. The priests, working with scientists of faith, create the Meta-Orb to hold the life forces of the Korbinites. They have
begun a mass evacuation, putting 80% of all of the life forces on the planet in the Meta-Orb. As Ven and Sala wait in line to be
put in the Meta-Orb, when the military separates them. Sala is put in the Meta-Orb while Ven is told he has been put in a line of
strong, healthy males to be drafted into the military to serve in the battle against Ashta.

Friday, February 27
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #2 (20-22)
One day, probably days after SSBRB 2 (7-13). As Bill sits around overwhelmed by all of the tragedy that has happened to his
people and to the Asgardians, Skuttlebutt's censors detect that the Meta-Orb is in trouble. Stardust has arrived and is holding the
Meta-Orb hostage. Bill flies out and the two prepare to do battle.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #3
The same day as SSBRB 2 (20-22). It is "several months" after SSBRB 3-FB (11). Bill rescues the Meta-Orb from the hands of
Stardust and sends it and Skuttlebutt deeper into space while he stays behind to face Stardust. They duel and Bill blows Stardust
to pieces. Stardust reforms himself and realizes he can't beat Beta Ray fair and square, so using a mystical spell, he unlocks a
doorway to a cosmic hell into which Bill barely keeps himself from being sucked. A black tentacle reaches out from the hell and
wraps around Bill, but he breaks the tentacle off. Stardust starts to panic and closes the door, but he's not fast enough - the black
tentacle mutates, transforming into a female devil-creature who calls herself Asteroth.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #4
The same day as SSBRB 3. Bill and Stardust are knocked unconscious by emergence of Asteroth. She declares that she's a
being of pure chaos and intends to devour the order of the universe and she flies off. She arrives at a nearby planet and starts to
incinerate it, feeding on the destruction. Stardust and Bill wake up, and Stardust convinces Bill they need to put aside their
fighting and destroy Asteroth. They fly off together and attack Asteroth, but she's already too powerful. Stardust casts another
dimensional spell, this time opening up a black hole, hoping to suck Asteroth in, but she turns it around on them and Stardust
and Bill start to get sucked in. Meanwhile, Galactus picks up Alpha Ray and fills the robot with the Power Cosmic, saying he
needs Alpha Ray to perform one final task.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #5 (3-9)
The same day as SSBRB 4. Stardust and Bill are being sucked into the black hole. They try to drag in Asteroth as well, but she
seems immune to the pull of the black hole. Draining energy from Bill and Stardust, Asteroth stumbles on the Meta-Orb, which
is tucked inside Bill's belt. All seems lost when Alpha Ray arrives, slamming into Asteroth and dragging her into the black hole.
Asteroth, Stardust, and Alpha Ray are sucked in, but Alpha Ray's slamming knocks Bill backwards out of the event horizon, and
the black hole closes before it can suck Bill in. Bill fades into unconsciousness.
Saturday, February 28
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #5 (10-23)
One day. Bill wakes up in a strange white place beyond time and space. A strange voice explains that Bill is in another
dimension outside of time and space, a dimension ruled by cosmic beings who locked away Asteroth and others in the cosmic
hell. They've transported Bill to their dimension to thank him for stopping Asteroth. Bill sees that Skuttlebutt is here too. The
cosmic beings tell Bill they will transport him wherever he wishes to go, and he decides he wants to go back to Asgard to check
to see if the Asgardians won the final battle of Ragnarok. So Bill gets onboard Skuttlebutt, and they leave this dimension behind.
Appearing back in real time and space, they find they're on a course for Asgard. Bill pauses to mourn the Korbinites some more.
Skuttlebutt reports that there is strange energy emitting from the Meta-Orb. This energy starts growing out of control, and Bill
grabs the Meta-Orb and busts out of the ship. The Meta-Orb emits an explosion of energy, and Bill and the Meta-Orb fall to the
ground below, which turns out to be Asgard in ruins. Bill stumbles upon Surtur's corpse. He walks back over to the Meta-Orb
and is shocked as it cracks open and a demonic version of Beta Ray Bill pops out. This creature reveals itself to be a mixture of
Asteroth and the Korbinites and calls itself Omega Ray. Before Asteroth was sucked into the black hole, she put a small portion
of her essense in the Meta-Orb. She's been feasting upon the souls in the Meta-Orb since then, and now has broken out in this
new body. Enraged, Bill immediately starts hammering away, calling upon all of the remaining power of Odin left in Asgard to
strike down this foe.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #6 - FB (16/17:2-20)
The same day as SSBRB 5 (10-23). Bill barely destroys Omega Ray, but all of the energy Bill unleashed leaves Bill dying as
well. He notices the Meta-Orb still pulses with life and realizes that not all of the souls inside were devoured by Omega Ray. He
crawls over to try to release the souls inside, but loses consciousness. He wakes up to what appears to be a glowing white female
figure standing overhead that says she will take good care of the remaining souls inside the Meta-Orb. She touches Bill, who
breathes his last breath.
STORMBREAKER: THE SAGA OF BETA RAY BILL #6
The same day as SSBRB 6-FB (16/17-20). A homeless man, Simon Walters, lies dead in the gutter on a New York street corner.
Lightning bursts, rain falls, and Walters comes back to life. He gets up and walks out onto the street, nearly getting hit by a
speeding car. The car swerves and crashes, and out of it jumps a hoodlum, who says he's fleeing Spider-Man. This hoodlum
transforms himself into a super-villain, the Boar, and he smashes up the street, then beats up Walters. Simon hits his hand on the
ground, magically transforms into Beta Ray Bill, and starts pounding on the Boar. Spider-Man arrives and the two team up and
defeat the Boar. They then go out for pizza. A short time later, Simon/Bill tells Spidey about the plight of the Korbinites, and he
thinks back to the last thing he remembers. Spider-Man tells Bill he's gotten a new lease on life, and Bill says he plans on
making the most of it. The two heroes go their separate ways.
Sunday, March 1
TOMB OF DRACULA v4 #1 (18:2-18:4)
One day. Enzo Ferrara dispatches some vampiric creatures.
Monday, March 2
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #8/2 (1-10)
One day, "one week" before ASMU2 8/2 (11). Peter accompanies M.J. on a photo shoot in San Francisco during a "vacation" -
probably spring break at his school. There, he helps victims of an earthquake but fails to save the life of the father of a baby he
rescues. Green grass and trees in San Francisco.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #13/2 - FB (3:5-4:1)
One day. Chicago beat cop Ted Simmons tries to rescue a man dangling from a ledge. The Uni-Power suddenly enters his body
and he rescues the man with ease.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #13/2 (3-8)
The same day as AAF2 13/2-FB (3-4). It is "two months" after AAF2 13/2-FB (1-2). Ted, in the Captain Universe outfit, comes
home to his wife to explain the day he had and that he's a superhero now. He goes out on patrol and encounters a group of
armed bank robbers in a firefight with other cops in the street. Ted starts to beat up the bad guys, but then his powers
malfunction, and a cop named Burns is killed in the crossfire. Ted doesn't understand why the powers failed him and he
demands the Captain Universe powers leave his body.
Tuesday, March 3
WOLVERINE v3 #20 (15-17)
One day, "one month" after W3 20 (13-14) and "eighteen months" after W3 26-FB. This segment occurs after W3 22-FB and "a
couple of days" before W3 20 (14-17). In Minneapolis, Nick Fury, Elektra, and SHIELD agents are at a Catholic church, the
apparent scene of a brutal occult ritual murder. Elektra confirms this is the work of the Hand. Fury says he's smoked out a plot
to take down "sixteen key figures in the superhuman community" and Wolverine was at the top of the list. Elektra says she'll
work for Fury again, taking the case since it involves the Hand. Just then, a SHIELD agent comes up to Fury and says that
Wolverine has just been found in South America. It's snowing hard in Minneapolis, where we see bare trees.
Wednesday, March 4
WOLVERINE v3 #20 (18-24)
The day ("12 hours") after W3 20 (15-17). It is "three or four years" after W/NF:SR. Elektra steps off a helicopter onto a
SHIELD aircraft carrier in the South Pacific, which is where they're keeping Wolverine. A soldier informs Elektra they found
Logan in Argentina, with "no hair, one eye, and ninety percent burns." They tell Elektra Logan's now in their sick bay,
unconscious and healing. As Elektra heads to sick bay, Logan wakes up. A voice in his head tells him to kill the nurse attending
him. He at first resists, but quickly submits, killing the nurse and putting on his costume. Suddenly, all the power goes out on
the security systems in the carrier. In the dark of the hallways of the carrier, Elektra is confronted by Wolverine.
WOLVERINE v3 #21 (1-13)
The same day as W3 20 (18-24). It is probably not "five weeks" before W3 23 (1-15) and perhaps three weeks rather than "three
months" before W3 28. Wolverine and Elektra do battle, with SHIELD agents getting caught in the middle and getting sliced up
by Wolverine. Elektra starts to get the upper hand on Wolverine, but just then, an explosion from a bomb planted by Logan rips
through the carrier, which starts to sink. Water floods into the carrier, separating Wolverine and Elektra and killing several
SHIELD agents. Wolverine escapes out the hole in the carrier and swims away. Elektra and the surviving SHIELD agents
evacuate the carrier. Elektra says this was a trap, and that they need to check and see if Wolverine tapped into the SHIELD
carrier's system mainframe. Logan downloaded "Defense codes, Pentagon files, White House security details." Elektra says,
"I'm afraid you didn't find Wolverine gentlemen. Wolverine found you."
Thursday, March 5
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #14/2 (3-8)
One day, "two months" after AAF2 14/2-FB (1-2). This segment occurs before CU/H. In Brooklyn, a handicapped man in a
wheelchair named Gabriel Vargas tries to stop a thief, but the thief escapes. Vargas feels useless and heads home, where he is
confronted by the Uni-Power, which appears as a glowing orb. The Uni-Power explains to Vargas that its powers are
malfunctioning for some reason and offers to bond with him if Vargas will help investigate the cause of the malfunctioning.
Vargas agrees to go on this quest with the Uni-Power, and the Uni-Power says that before it can restore the use of Vargas' legs, it
has to go bond with some of Earth's mightiest heroes, to replicate their powers. The Uni-Power states that it shall try to replicate
the powers of the Hulk first. Green trees in New York.
WOLVERINE v3 #21 (14-17)
The day ("24 hours") after W3 21 (1-13). This segment occurs "a couple of days" after W3 20 (15-17), must occur after UX 460
(1-14), and probably after NX 12. In Manhattan, Nick Fury is in conference with Elektra and top SHIELD agents aboard the
Helicarrier. Fury says that trying to locate Wolverine telepathically doesn't work as the Hand has supernatural shields in place.
Fury says they've uncovered what the Hand, Hydra, and Dawn of the White Light's plan is - to kill super-heroes and reanimate
them as un-dead warriors to go out and kill others. Fury says they're going to put all super-heroes on red alert and lock them
down until they can capture Wolverine. Air Force One lands on the helicarrier.
UNCANNY X-MEN #460 (1-14)
Perhaps the same day as W2 21 (14-17). It is "more than a year" after XX 2 and probably more than "several weeks" before UX
460 (15-22). Bishop notes that "we've been away [since UX 455 (5-15)] a lot longer than we anticipated...and out of
communication." Rachel notes that X-23 is "new around here." This segment must occur before X:PE 1. The XSE team arrive
back at the Xavier Institute, where they discover that Colossus is alive, Rachel ticks off Kitty, Psylocke learns that Jean is dead,
and Beast reacts to Betsey's being alive. Bishop learns that Wolverine has gone rogue, having been "suborned by Hydra and the
Hand and has become their premier assassin" and that "a global alert has been issued for him - to be shot on sight" - this clue,
and the fact that Storm is featured in W3 21 (14-23), likely places this segment between pages 13 and 14 of W3 21. The report
that Logan's "latest target was the President of the United States" cannot be a reference to W3 25, given Storm's chronology.
Green grass and trees at Westchester.
WOLVERINE v3 #21 (18-23)
The same evening as W3 21 (14-17) and perhaps the same evening as UX 460 (1-14). At the Xavier Institute, Kitty Pryde has
tucked all of the younger students of the school into a group room, where they're to sleep together (so school is in session;
probably the second semester). She says the whole school is in lock-down, and everyone's sharing rooms. Kitty is sleeping in
the same room as Ororo. The last of the Baxter Building employees leave the building. Sue Storm overhears these last two
employees bad mouthing the FF and complaining about the evacuation of the building. She then steps inside the Baxter
Building, and Ben puts the place into lock-down, but he doesn't know is that Wolverine's already inside the building. Emma
Frost is BTS. Kitty says to Ororo, "All those prayers worked for Peter, right? Fingers crossed they work for Logan now, too." -
this places this segment after ASTONX3 6 (20-23).
WOLVERINE v3 #22
The same evening as W3 21 (18-23). Wolverine fights the FF and manages to escape the Baxter Building with a disc containing
specs to Reed Richards' inventions, which Hydra wants to use to develop weapons. The FF are living in the Baxter Building and
Johnny is dating "Sabrina," so this story presumably occurs after Kourtney leaves for LA following FOUR 13 (6-11). Johnny
notes that "SHIELD's put the whole building into lock-down for twenty-four hours." Franklin hasn't seen Reed "in almost two
days" because Reed's been working on a terraformer for "forty-eight hours." Tony Stark and Hank Pym appear here, linked from
unknown remote locations; Pym may be in England, given that he was heading for Oxford a month after A:FINALE. Strucker

jealous, and says that his thing with Kirsten has been over at least two weeks. That evening, in Eric's room, Chris plays his X-
Box and Eric reminds him about his date. He rushes to the hydroponics bay and admits to Veronica that he was forced to tell
Eric about them by her "little display at the console," but claimed it was their first date and that she asked him out when neither
was true. They have a talk about the evil alternate Stark, Chris having seen him on the way down, and when she ends the subject

The day after IAM 1-FB (8-11). This flashback occurs after W3 25 (13/14-20). In the surveillance center, Eric bugs Chris about
his date, but Chris stonewalls until Mitch turns up; he has to pull some security agents off guard detail because of "some
classified business," but he still needs the appearance of guards on the detail. Despite being totally unqualified, he browbeats
them into doing it. Not knowing whether they're keeping someone in or out, they clonk Pym on the head when he tries to come
out before realizing their mistake. They drag him inside and panic before seeing the Ant-Man suit. Eric talks Chris into trying it
on, but he "disappears" (shrinks) when trying to take the helmet off so Eric can try it. Eric runs. Elsewhere, Logan undergoes
de-programming. Mitch looks nervous as Dum Dum Dugan mentions that he wants everyone on full alert, and is forced to admit
he's never seen Wolverine up close before. "Later," Eric hides in his room, repeating "I'm totally screwed" over and over, when
Mitch turns up, livid. Eric tells Mitch what happened, although he thinks it was a teleportation suit. Mitch says what it really is,
and that he and the other three agents are under suspicion since they were the only ones who knew about it. He tells Eric to keep
his mouth shut and vaguely threatens him. "Meanwhile," Chris gets blown about in the Helicarrier's ventilation system

IRREDEEMABLE ANT-MAN #2 - FB (6-8:1)
The same evening as W3 26 (12-23). It is "two days" after IAM 2-FB (3-5). Chris still hasn't turned up, and Veronica asks Eric
about him. He stalls and then asks her out, which gets her away. He then runs into Mitch, who's still not happy, believing Chris
should have found them by now. He accidentally mentions the Wolverine/HYDRA reprogramming in noting that the missing
Ant-Man suit has''t been a high priority. Suddenly, a Level One Emergency Alert sounds; the Helicarrier's under attack and

The same day as W3 27 (1-13/14). The Elektra-led attack is in full swing and a small explosion knocks the lost Chris out of the
vent. He spots two villains attacking three SHIELD agents and manages to beat them with the jets. He then inadvertently hits
the "full-size" button just as someone punches through the wall beside him. He runs, encounters a grey Thing lookalike and
shrinks. He then finds his way to Eric's quarters, where Eric cowers under the table. Remembering the code, Eric jumps out and
attacks Chris with a shoe before realizing who it is. They explain what's been happening to each other, then a couple of villains
blast through a wall. Eric gets the door open and pushes his way in. Before Chris can get in, however, he's blasted in the head.
Eric is upset that his friend is dying, but Chris' last words are about what Eric had lied to Veronica about.

at the tented village near the crash site, when Eric runs in, carrying the Ant-Man suit in a holdall, with the injured Fury.
Wolverine tells him he did good, but Eric's depressed over Chris' death. Veronica, arm in a sling and glasses cracked, asks if
he's seen anyone, and Eric says Chris is dead. She cries and hugs him.
WOLVERINE v3 #27 (17-23)
The same day as IAM 3-FB (4-7). It is discovered that more than 200 SHIELD agents were killed in the crash. Logan calls
Ichiro and Fukuko, who want Logan to wreak vengeance on the Hand for their son's death. Gorgon tells Elspeth that they can
unleash their arsenal upon the world in "three more weeks...two and a half if we can smuggle those materials out of Wakanda."

Thursday, April 2
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #77
Probably early one morning. Hulk makes his way toward what is referred to as "Monster Island," destroying attacking sharks
and squids and thinking back to a period in his teenage years. Hulk washes up on the island and transforms back into Banner. A
monster emerges and is about to eat Banner, when two figures named Gwen and Ripley emerge. They use a flamethrower to
drive the monster off, then Gray Hulk appears.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #78
The same early morning as H3 77. Banner transforms into Unleashed Hulk and battles Gray Hulk. Ripley and Gwen run away.
Unleashed Hulk eventually kills Gray Hulk by accident and the corpse transforms into a dead body of a Mindless One. Ripley
and Gwen take shelter deeper in the woods on the island and Ripley concludes they must be in Hell. Just then, the two of them
are approached by "Thunderbolt Ross."
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #79
The same early morning as H3 78. Standing over the corpse of the Mindless One, Unleashed Hulk is attacked by a Mindless One
masquerading as Fin Fang Foom. Hulk eventually tosses Foom into a volcano. Ripley and Gwen go with "Ross" to a secret
military compound where they will supposedly be safe from the monsters on the island. "Ross" says this is all a big military
experiment out of control. As they are about to enter the compound "Ross" is attacked by another monster and dragged away.
Prof. Yarish, the person who "Ross" says runs the island, yells at Ripley and Gwen to get inside the perimeter. Ripley does, but
Gwen runs off after "Ross" to save him.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #80
The same early morning as H3 79. Hulk reverts back to Banner to sort things out, but then he's attacked by "Wolverine."
Banner turns back into Hulk and fights his attacker. Kang appears and explains he's plucking people from the timeline to kill the
Hulk, but Hulk reverts back to Banner and demands the truth. "Wolverine" stabs him and Banner wakes up. He finds himself in
a mental asylum, wrapped up in a straight jacket and attended by "Leonard Samson," who says that everything since Bruce left
the Pantheon (in H2 425) has been a demented dream and that Betty never died. Meanwhile, Yarish explains to Ripley that this
is a military experiment, but Ripley's doesn't believe it. Yarish, another Mindless One, drugs Ripley with some tea. Gwen
stumbles across "Ross," who grabs her and drowns her in a pond. He says she's not supposed to feel sympathy for humans and
leaves. Gwen awakens a few minutes later and notices her hair has changed from black to red...she's starting to remember who
she really is.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #81
The same early morning as H3 80. Banner realizes that Samson and the Asylum are another illusion scenario. He turns into the
Hulk and starts to strangle "Samson." Hulk demands the truth, and finally gets it after Gwen reappears. She makes the illusions
disappear, and it stands revealed: Nightmare is the true master of this island and Gwen (aka Daydream) is his daughter.
Nightmare explains that the island was created because of a massive trauma that inflicted the world (presumably 9/11) and that
since that day he's been trying to weaken the line between what is real and what isn't. He tells Hulk that he's a "Prime Test
Case" and that certain memories of his aren't real. He also says that Daydream's mother is Betty Ross. Hulk rips Nightmare's
head off and rides his horse off the island. Daydream takes Ripley to take him to a special place where they can live happily ever
after. Betty Banner then washes up onto the island and a Mindless One disguised as her father greets her.
Friday, April 3
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #13 (17-22)

Sasquatch makes an appearance. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
WOLVERINE v3 #28
One rainy night, at least 25 hours after W3 27. It may be three weeks, not "three months," after W3 21 (1-13). It is "the better
part of a week" before W3 30. This story occurs "seven months" before X 189. Logan's present-time narration includes the line,
"Not the new Avengers. Avengers classic" - this indication that this story occurs after A3 6 is an error. Logan finds Northstar in
a bar and is ambushed by a horde of super-powered operatives of the Dawn of the White Light. He awakens in an abandoned
Alaskan oil refinery and summons three Sentinels to free him and smash the horde. After failing to get info on Hydra from
Northstar, Logan knocks him out and summons SHIELD. Logan takes off on a Sentinel to attack the Hand. The Rockslide in
this story cannot be the member of the Hellions. Waning crescent moon.
Saturday, April 4
WOLVERINE v3 #29
Probably the day after W3 28. Riding the Sentinel, Logan arrives at the temple of the Hand in Japan and obliterates a bunch of
Hand operatives before encountering Elektra, who surprises the Hand by teaming up with Logan against them. Elektra and
Logan wipe out the whole temple and Elektra reveals that she's been shamming the whole time. The duo is picked up by
SHIELD and set out to get Hydra. Nick Fury is seen bandaged up in a hospital bed. Green grass and trees.

Detecting her as she plummets, the second gauntlet that fell to earth from the alien collision launches itself from its landing spot in San Francisco Bay and attaches to Violet's arm. It fires a grappling hook that saves Violet. Violet sees the gauntlet as a sign of hope and a reason for being. Jacket weather.

IRREDEEMABLE ANT-MAN #3 - FB (8-16)
One day, "one week" after IAM 3-FB (4-7). It is "two days" before IAM 3-FB (17). Eric and Veronica arrive in Eric's and
Chris' childhood hometown in Vermont and meet Chris' parents, Jim and Nancy. Nancy is very distressed, wishing Eric had
died instead of Chris. Eric's parents moved away, so they stay with the McCarthys. That night, neither Eric nor Veronica can
sleep. She goes in to see him, and he says he's sorry he told her Chris was cheating on her, though he doesn't admit he made it
up. He puts his hand on her shoulder and she dashes out the room. He then puts the Ant-Man costume on, shrinks, and decides
to go for a test drive. In Arkansas, Hank Pym and Maria Hill visit the injured Mitch Carson in a hospital to ask him to use a
prototype Ant-Man suit to hunt down the person who stole the real suit, someone they suspect to be a SHIELD agent. Learning
that he would have been SHIELD's choice for Ant-Man, Mitch accepts. Back in Vermont, Eric has the basics down; he's as
strong as he is at full-size and has the jet legs figured. When he sees a guy threatening his wife, he shouts "Ant-Man to the
rescue," but overshoots the jump. Landing on his shoulder, he gives the guy "a full-sized punch from an ant-sized man." Instead
of knocking him over, his arm gets buried in the neck up to his shoulder. Then a great spurt of blood knocks him over and down
to the ground. An ambulance shows up and takes the husband to hospital. Eric returns to the McCarthy house and sees an upset
Veronica, who starts crying on his shoulder.
WOLVERINE v3 #30
One day. It is "the better part of a week" - and more than three days - after W3 28. It may be two weeks, not "two months" after
W3 25 (13/14-20); during this time, Logan has not been with the X-Men for shame over his killing Northstar. Dum Dum notes
that Nick has being fighting Hydra for "fifty years," but this must be a topical reference. Emma holds a psychic therapy session
with Kitty, Bobby, Hank, and Rachel. Northstar's de-programming is going slowly. With the help of such contracted,
incarcerated sociopaths as Tombstone and Constrictor, SHIELD attacks seven Hydra death-factories that are using Reed
Richards' stolen notes to create super-weapons. Logan and Elektra lead a SHIELD strike team in an attack on Gorgon and
Elsbeth in Manhattan. Gorgon impales Logan and acquires from Elektra's mind the location of the hospitalized Nick Fury.
WOLVERINE v3 #31 (1-18)
The same night as W3 31. It cannot be "close to eleven weeks" before W3 31 (19-23); maybe it's eleven days. It is "a couple of
months" before GSW 1 (1-17). Elektra may appear next in E:HAND 1. Gorgon shows up at SHIELD's secret New York
infirmary, prepared to kill Fury, but Logan teleports there and battles Gorgon. Logan uses his claws to reflect Gorgon's gaze
back at him, turning the Hydra leader to stone. After Logan smashes Gorgon to bits, Spidey appears and remarks on Logan's
poor physical condition.
Thursday, April 9
ELEKTRA: THE HAND #1
One day. This story may occur after Elektra took control of the Hand following W3 31 (1-18), not "years" before comics
published in 2004. Six members of the Hand perform a ritual over a body that is concealed in white wrappings, all dying in order
to return the body to life. Elektra, watching all of this with an unnamed Hand member, is told of the origins of the Hand.

The same day as E:HAND 1. The story of the Hand continues to be told to Elektra.

ELEKTRA: THE HAND #4
The same day as E:HAND 3. The story of the Hand continues to be told to Elektra.
ELEKTRA: THE HAND #5
The same day as E:HAND 4. This story may occur before W3 31 (19-23). Elektra's nameless narrator tells her that her destiny
is in her hands. Elektra and the anonymous Hand member disappear, and the resurrected figure on the slab awakens - the person
being revived was Elektra all along, and the conversation she had was a vision or hallucination that she had while being brought
back to life. Elektra discards her wrappings in favor of her white costume. If this story indeed occurs after W3 31 (1-18), then
Elektra discards the white costume following this to appear in a new red costume in M/N:I 1-6.

One day. Medusa narrates info about her life and how much she wishes to hear Black Bolt make any sort of sound. Black Bolt

The day after YA 1-FB. This story occurs after YAS 1-FB (24:1-24:2). The Avengers are noted as being disbanded, so this
story must occur after A:FINALE. J. Jonah Jameson wants Kat Farrell and the pregnant Jessica Jones to follow up on the Young
Avengers story. Cap and Iron Man meet with Jessica to discuss shutting down the new group. That evening, when gunmen
interrupt a wedding at St. Patrick's Cathedral and take people hostage, the Young Avengers show up and a battle ensues. Thanks
to bridesmaid Kate Bishop, the gunmen are defeated but the cathedral catches fire. In the aftermath, the Young Avengers escape
police arrest and go their separate ways. At the ruined Avengers Mansion, Cap, Iron Man, and Jessica catch up with Iron Lad,

One day. This segment must occur before NFHC 1, AAF2 10, and A4 14-FB (15:2, 15:4), and may occur after E:HAND 5. I
have it before C&DP 13. It cannot be "close to eleven weeks" after W3 31 (1-18) - it may be eleven days - but during this time
Logan has been "off the radar," searching for something and leaving a trail of corpses from Jersey to Japan, and Elektra has
presumably re-started the Hand as her own militia in eastern Europe. The "Helicarrier v2.0" is "still sixteen weeks from
completion;" this may not be the Helicarrier shown in A4 6 and HERC 4. A recuperating Nick Fury, left arm in a sling, narrates
a memo to Kitty Pryde reporting on Logan and lying about Northstar's situation, making her think the latter has died when he is
actually still a resurrected baddie in SHIELD custody. Logan finds the grave of Ichiro's son in Japan.

Piledriver's son, Excavator. They leave them unconscious for the cops to pick up. Excelsior, a support group for former teen
superheroes, holds its first meeting. Rick Jones phones anonymously to offer them $1 million to put the Runaways out of the
circulation. The Runaways are back at the La Brea Tar Pits Museum, an old Pride safehouse that serves as their current hideout.
Gert comes back from 20 years in the future to warn them about Victor, who will become a major supervillain and wipe out all
the heroes. Future Gert then dies. The reference to it being "2005" must be topical.

is to become very nasty indeed. The Runaways decide to go after Victor.

old, returns to Grand Falls upon word that her adopted parents were murdered. The sheriff tells her there are no suspects. She
goes to the funeral home to discuss plans for burial, then goes to the bank to retrieve her parents' safety deposit box. Inside the
box she finds a birth certificate for herself, showing that she was born and put in an orphanage in Madripoor. This comes as a
shock to Carmilla, as her adopted parents told her that they knew nothing about her real parents. According to her birth
certificate, Carmilla's real name is Thasanee Rappaccini. That night, Carmilla sits by a lakeshore talking to Janice about all of
her problems when suddenly AIM agents burst out and attempt to kidnap Carmilla. Janice flees in terror. A SHIELD vessel
arrives and the AIM agents flee. SHIELD captures Carmilla. Agents Khanata, Nagayoshi, and Sareva interrogate her to find out
where Carmilla's loyalties lie. They tell her that AIM killed her adopted parents to draw her out of hiding so they could kidnap
her. They tell her that her real mother is Monica Rappaccini, a high-ranking AIM scientist, who is apparently trying to meet up
with her daughter after all these years. Agent Khanata fears AIM is preparing for a major terrorist attack and they ask Carmilla to
help them, saying that they "have less than a week before AIM strikes." Carmilla agrees, and they dub her Scorpion. Green,
leafy trees in Vermont.

his mother. It's the Doombot who answers.

Doombot together. Meanwhile, Excelsior discover Rick Jones' gift, a ship for Phil to drive. Rick is coming by the next plane.

believes to be his father. Actually, the Runaways were trying to make Victor's mother escape, but the Doombot sees through it.

The same day as AAF2 11-FB (1:2). Carmilla retires to her room at "almost midnight" to find Khanata has left her a costume to
wear and they tell Carmilla that she'll have to break into the orphanage if they are to find info on Monica Rappaccini. Green
trees in Madripoor. Full moon.
Thursday, April 23
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #8 (9-22)
The day after AAF2 8 (7-8). Carmilla, in Scorpion costume, breaks into the orphanage. She finds her file with a list of birth
certificates of other children of AIM agents attached to it. As encounters a cell holding young girls to be traded on the black
market as sex slaves by the local crime gang. She frees them and is attacked by the girls' captors, one of whom knocks her out
with drugs. The girls escape and the thugs decide to dispose of Carmilla's body. Later that morning, Carmilla awakens inside the
coffin of a member of the royal family just as the coffin is set afire in a funeral pyre. Meanwhile, Monica Rappaccini leaves
Carmilla a note in her hotel room. Full moon.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #9 (1-6)
The same day as AAF2 8 (9-22). Carmilla breaks out of the coffin and is confronted by Madripoor police officers. Troy
witnesses the tussle and recognizes Carmilla. She escapes the police and she and Troy go to her hotel. Troy concludes she's a
superhero and Carmilla uses the idea as a cover story. She receives the note from her mother, which reads, "Observation Tower,
Petrin Park, Prague 17:00 hours." Carmilla and Troy decide to fly to Prague.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #515 (18:5)
One night. Spidey nabs some criminals.
NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #1
One night. This story occurs after AoATLAS 2-FB (3:3), AAF2 12/2 and six days before NFHC 3 (3-4). If the Fury here is genuine, then this story must occur before SECWAR 1 (1-2) and probably after W3 31 (19-23). SHIELD has recruited a strike-force of monsters consisting of Warwolf, Nina Price, Gorilla Man, the Living Mummy, Frankenstein, and the Zombie. Dubbed the Commandos, they infiltrate a terrorist group purchasing illegal software from the Lords of the Living Lightning, black market techno suppliers. Nick Fury forces Clay Quartermain to assume command of the Commandos' home base, the ultra-classified Area 13. Merlin ecapes from the holding facility at Area 13.
Friday, April 24
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #9 (7-22)
The day ("18 hours") after AAF2 9 (1-6). As Carmilla and Troy get off the plane in Prague, Khanta and colleagues, posing as
airport security, pull Carmilla aside and ask how she survived the incident in Madripoor. They tell her to be careful around Troy,
as they are wondering how he's able to afford to fly around the world. Carmilla rejoins Troy and they go to the Beer Hall. She
asks him how he's able to fly around the world and he gets defensive. They have an argument and split up. As Carmilla walks
around town, she is confronted by a group of SHIELD agents tracking a different AIM terror cell. They move to arrest her and
she flees, heading at 5:00 to the rendezvous point, where she is abducted by AIM. Khanata confronts the other SHIELD agents
and they get everything sorted out, but the SHIELD agents are unable to locate and save Carmilla, having been duped by an AIM
switcheroo. It is warm in Prague. According to Troy's blog page, it is "June 10th;" Troy's blog dated "June 11th" may be
posted the next day; the dates may be topical.
AVENGERS: THE INITIATIVE ANNUAL #1/2 - FB (4:2)
One day, between A:TI@ 1/2-FB (1-4) and ATI@ 1/2-FB (4:3) and perhaps before A4 1 (1-8). Armory (Violet Lightner) defeats the jewel-robbing Brothers Grimm, who may be sent to the Raft after this.
ANNIHILATION: SUPER-SKRULL #3 - FB (1:3-2:3)
Praxagora is tortured by Hawal in the months prior.
Saturday, April 25
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #10
Probably the day after AAF2 9 (7-22). This story must occur after W3 31 (19-23). It is "19 years" after AAF2 10-FB. Carmilla
awakens on a transport that has just landed at an AIM base in Sudan. She is greeted by Lars, who demands that as a show of
loyalty she kill some Sudanese mercenaries that have been raiding AIM supply convoys. She heads to the mercenaries outpost
and plans to get the thugs to flee the camp and to blow up the place without taking lives. The plan goes wrong when one of the
mercenaries accidentally sets off a missile of mustard gas, killing all the mercs. Blaming herself for the loss of life, Carmilla calls
Troy on a cell phone and says she's going away forever. She hangs up on Troy just as Lars and the other AIM agents retrieve
her. They take her back to base and let her watch a videotape showing her pregnant mother hosting an AIM meeting, revealing
that Carmilla's adopted parents are AIM agents. Lars says it was SHIELD, not AIM, that killed Carmilla's adopted parents. At
the Helicarrier, Khanata meets with a seemingly fit Fury while Nagayoshi and Sareva do a little more digging into Carmilla's
history. Dr. Anish Rao calls and gives them the results of a blood sample they took from Carmilla; Carmilla has been genetically
engineered to survive biological, chemical, and radiological attacks, explaining how she survived the mustard gas. Nagayoshi and
Sareva deduce that Carmilla's adopted parents were AIM agents. Khanata says that Fury now considers Carmilla an AIM ally
and has ordered Carmilla's liquidation. Troy 's remark, "Were the Avengers Assembling?," is a funny line that doesn't
necessarily indicate the Avengers' status.
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #82 (1-16)
One day. Bruce Banner walks the streets of London and is saved from getting hit by a car by a woman named Tricia. Bruce and
Tricia feel a connection, but she declines his invitation for a drink and climbs into a taxi, which explodes. Banner turns into the
Hulk and, realizing the escaping taxi driver as an assassin, chases him until the man collapses dead from fright. Hulk is
confronted by Tricia's ghost, who explains that she's a sorcerer and asks Hulk to help her find the rival sorcerer who ordered her
hit before her astral form fades away in "24 hours," and she truly passes on. Hulk then questions sorcerers throughout the city
without obtaining leads. We see trench coats and short-sleeve shirts in London.
One day, "a week" before C&DP 13. Cable has breakfast with terrorist Haji Bin Barat.
Sunday, April 26
INCREDIBLE HULK v2 #82 (17-22)
The day after H3 82 (1-16). Tricia runs out of suspects and tells Hulk to transform back to Bruce and tell her fiance that she
died. Tricia tells Bruce that she and Bruce are soulmates and hopes to be his lover in the next life. When Bruce is about to give
Tricia's fiancé the news, Tricia identifies the fiance's teenage son as the guilty party. Bruce transforms into Hulk and tells the
kid to run for his life, which the kid does.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #11 (1-7)
Perhaps the day after AAF2 10. Troy is still in Prague and wants to help Carmilla. He calls his father, the owner of Goddard
Aerospace (which explains how he can afford to fly all over the world), but Troy and his father have had a falling out. Troy asks
his father to trace the cell phone call that Carmilla called him from last issue, and his father agrees to do it if Troy will eventually
come home. Carmilla and Lars arrive in the USA just outside of Washington DC, where they meet up with other young AIM
agents who were genetically engineered. Lars secretly tells other AIM agents to keep an eye on Troy back in Prague.
Monday, April 27
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #11 (8-22)
The day ("24 hours") after AAF2 11 (1-7). Carmilla is told that the AIM terror cell plans to launch a decoy attack on the nearby
World Bank headquarters which will send the Vice President to his hiding place, where they will set off a biological virus bomb,
killing everyone in the area and infecting a good portion of Maryland. Carmilla slips out and calls Troy to warn him that a terror
attack is about to occur. Troy surprises her by arriving on the scene in person, explaining that he managed to track her down by
tracing her cell phone. As Khanata and his team prepare to snipe Carmilla from a nearby rooftop, they are attacked by the AIM
agents that have been following Troy. Lars appears and kidnaps Troy. and Carmilla checks on the wounded Khanata. An
explosion rocks the World Bank headquarters, and Carmilla and Khanata decide they've got to stop the AIM attack.
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12 (1-19:3)
The same day as AAF2 11 (8-22). The Secret Service takes the Vice President into the secret subway system below DC to his
hiding place. Monica, Lars, and the other zombie AIM agents hijack the subway train, and lock up Cheney and Troy. Carmilla
steals a motorcycle and rides it down into the subway system. She catches up with subway train and defeats most of the AIM
agents before the train arrives at its location. She uses her powers to absorb the biological bomb the AIM agents let off, saving
Cheney and Troy. Before Lars can kill Carmilla, Monica realizes this she is her daughter and kills Lars for not telling her the
truth about Carmilla. Carmilla asks why Monica killed her parents, and Monica says she didn't. The army shows up, Monica
teleports away, and Carmilla flees.
Tuesday, April 28
SHE-HULK v4 #4 - FB (21:3)
One day. She-Hulk plants some leafy trees in Bone, Idaho, where flowers are blooming.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #9 (8-11)
One day, a "few short weeks" after XU2 9 (1-7). Hank, who is wearing a sweater, sees some of his work with his students (one
of whom gets a college rejection letter) go down the tubes, but he earns the trust of the shy "Amoeba Boy."
NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #2
One night,"days" after NFHC 1 - Clay is still the "new C.O." Warwolf and Gorilla Man, joined by Abominable Snowman and a
Sasquatch, subdue Groot and SHIELD takes him into custody. A new recruit, the Glob, is introduced. Brother Voodoo arrives
and warns the Commandos that the freed Merlin has amassed an army of the dead. Green trees. Full moon.
NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #3 (1-2)
The same night as NFHC 2. The Council meets to discuss the impact of a force of unknown origin (actually the spell cast by Merlin in NFHC 2), including wiping out both SHIELD's esper force and their own.
Wednesday, April 29
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12 (19:4-20)
One day, perhaps a few days after AAF2 12 (1-19). This segment must occur before SECWAR 1 (1-2). Khanata, Sareva, and
Nagayoshi (showing wounds from the battle with AIM) stand before Fury, who is mad at the way they've handled the operation.
Khanata reports that Scorpion did save the day, and that she would make for a great addition to SHIELD's forces. Fury decides
Khanata and company did a good job after all.

NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #3 (3-4)
One day, six days after NFHC 1. Quartermain examines the results of Merlin's spell on the esper force.
Thursday, April 30
One day, after RUN2 6 and "three weeks" before RUN2 7. The Runaways fight the Tarantula.

One day. This flashback probably occurs after S-H4 13-FB (16-17). On a distant planet, Starfox (in his classic costume) saves a
space-virgin from space-monsters.
ANNIHILATION: RONAN #2 - FB (10:1)
One day. Stellaris and Spirit blow up a settlement in Gamora's name.
NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #3 (5-22)
The day ("24 hours") after NFHC 3 (3-4). It is presumably "two weeks" before NFHC 4. Quartermain tells Vampire by Night that she's going on a mission (to England) with another vampire. Vampire by Night and Lilith set out to discover the origin of the spell that wiped out the esper force and they get separated in the process. Merlin reveals to one of his elf servants, Telesti, that the realm of magic will be restored to England within "two weeks," and from there, to the world beyond. Vampire by Night battles many ogres while Lilith is treated like a queen. Lilith sees Son of Satan being escorted through the village streets by an armed guard. After defeating a slew of ogres, Vampire by Night is swarmed by other denizens of the village, who joyously dub her the "Tussle Queen." That night, Quartermain views a satellite photo of Vampire by Night being hoisted on the shoulders of the mob. The timestamp on the photo reads a topical "07/09/08 3:42 AM GMT."
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #2 - FB (10:2-18:1)
One night. Stark records an emergency message in which he states that in the event of his incapacitation or death, the new armor
will upload his consciousness and become Tony Stark 2.0. While taping, Iron Man is attacked by a mysterious strike force.
Stark is incapacitated and the armor uploads his consciousness, flees the scene, and deposits Stark in the woods. Stark's
emergency message is altered and sent to SHIELD. Green grass and trees.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #1
The same night as IM:H 2-FB (10-18). Thinking they're dealing with a sentient armor gone rogue, a squad of SHIELD cape-
killers finds and battles Iron Man. During the fight, Stark 2.0's thoughts are haunted by a mysterious tattooed and pierced
woman named Absynthe. A SHIELD strike briefly decapitates the armor, revealing the suit to be empty.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #2 - FB (7:3)
The same night as IM:H 1. A SHIELD squad finds Stark in the woods.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #2
The same night as IM:H 1. SHIELD's "Major Tom" records a sitrep for SHIELD Director Nick Fury, who's involved in an
operation in the Caribbean. Tom reviews the faked footage as SHIELD planes chase the armor and surgeons tend to Stark's
collapsed lung. SHIELD launches the Gungnir missile at the armor, which rides the missile and dumps it at sea. Absynthe
appears to Stark 2.0 again, and he concludes that he's been set up. Full moon.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #3
The same night as IM:H 2. The reference to it being "64 years" since WWII must be topical. Stark notes to himself that
"SHIELD isn't always known for its squeamishness and delicacy...as I'm now all too well aware" - this may be a clue that Stark
is head of SHIELD. Absynthe reveals herself as an avatar of the sentient intrusionware that has hacked into Stark's armor. Stark
2.0 infiltrates a group of mecha partying on the bottom of the harbor but realizes he's walked into a trap. Social Butterfly is
among the mecha shown here.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #4
The same night as IM:H 3. Absynthe cracks the armor's operating system and leaves Stark 2.0 vulnerable to and detected by
SHIELD. As SHIELD streaks to the armor's location, Absynthe starts overwriting Stark 2.0's programming code.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #5
The same night as IM:H 4. As Absynthe strips away Stark 2.0's memories, Stark 2.0 rewrites himself into Absynthe's memory space, but as they both face SHIELD's capekilling technology, an army of mechas is deployed.
IRON MAN: HYPERVELOCITY #6
The same night as IM:H 5. Stark 2.0 prevents a nuclear warhead from detonating and saves the day. Stark 1.0's condition is stabilized. This story must occur before SECWAR 1 (1-2), since Fury is noted as Director of SHIELD in this story arc. It must occur before LW 1.
Friday, May 1
AMAZING FANTASY v2 #12 (21-22)
One day, perhaps days after AAF2 12 (19-20). This segment must occur before CU/X 1 (1-20). Sareva still has a head bandage
from the AIM battle. As Troy and Carmilla enjoy a fancy dinner somewhere on the Mediterranean, she gets a call from Khanata
that it's time for action. She changes into costume and leaps into battle, jumping into a nearby AIM hideout to do battle.
Scorpion is now a SHIELD agent who poses as a super-hero and battles AIM and other terror cells while trying to track down her
INCREDIBLE HULK v3 #82 (23)
One day, probably a few days after H3 82 (17-22) - enough time for Tricia's remains to be buried. Banner visits Tricia's
tombstone and puts a letter on her grave.
Saturday, May 2
NEW AVENGERS #14 - FB (15:2, 15:4)
One day. This flashback must occur after W3 31 (19-23). Jessica Drew gives Fury some intel: "Hydra has a splinter group
setting up camp in Iraq. They want to help the Saddam Abed Dasam build his - ," to which Fury replies, "We know that."
Jessica adds, "He has the Scorpio Key," and Nick says, "That I didn't know." This would seem to place this story before ELEK
2, but that can't be, given that GSSW 1 occurs after Disassembled. This flashback must occur much later in Elektra's
chronology; according to my calculations, Elektra would now be with a Hand militia in eastern Europe, as per W3 31 (19-23).
Perhaps Dasam has somehow retrieved the Scorpio Key, last seen in ELEK 5 (19-22) in the hands of the man who shot Elektra's
father. Leafy trees.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (41)
One day. Scorcher writes his wife a letter postmarked "6/09/05" (a topical date). He warns her to leave New York because of a
job he's doing "in the next couple of days."
CABLE & DEADPOOL #13
One day. I'd argue that it's now after W3 31 (19-23). Logan is back in New York, perhaps for the first time since the end of the
whole Enemy of the State/Agent of SHIELD affair. He mops up a residual gang of Hydra agents causing trouble in a scene that's
obviously meant to be a reference to that W3 storyline. Logan's costume does not sport the diamonds down the sides of the pant
legs as it did during W3 20-31. It is "a week" after Cable's breakfast with Barat, but it cannot be just "a month," but rather
several months, after C&DP 12. As Cable researches the Skornn, Irene, Wade, and Prester John investigate the murder of
terrorist Haji Bin Barat at Providence. Wade comes to the conclusion that he himself killed Barat, and so do the others. Green
trees and coats and jackets in New York.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #14 (1-20)
The same day as C&DP 13. It may be four months, not "four days," before C&DP 14 (21-22). Prester John hunts down
Deadpool and battles him before Cable intervenes. Wade can't remember killing Barat because of his brain damage. Cable
states that he's leaving Providence to recruit X-Force for a mission and that Wade can't remain there in his absence. Deadpool
Sunday, May 3
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #1 (8-22)
One day, "5 months" after SSO 1 (1-7). Val Cooper and Jim Rhodes (in an armor that's a cross between Iron Man and Sentinels)
welcome a new batch of recruits to the Sentinel Squad O*N*E program. The recruits include squad leader Nathanial Briggs,
closet mutant Alexander Lexington, scientist Emil Winston, loudmouth Jake Slayton, Nixon, Rajani Dhama, and a mutant named
Meld. Cadet Skylark gives the recruits a demonstration of a Sentinel Brawler unit. General Lazer gives Val a mission for the
recruits - Operation: Savage Land.
HULK/THING: HARD KNOCKS #1
One day, probably after H3 76. It may be more than "fifteen years" after FF 5. The military track Banner down to a café in the
desert, but the Thing intervenes and talks to the Hulk.
HULK/THING: HARD KNOCKS #2
The same day as H/T:HK 1. Hulk and Thing talk some more.
HULK/THING: HARD KNOCKS #3
The same day as H/T:HK 2. More Hulk and Thing talk.
HULK/THING: HARD KNOCKS #4
The same day as H/T:HK 3. The events of this series are reported in the Daily Bugle in PULSE 7, so it's probably the day before
that issue. More talk and some fighting. Ben ends up with his arm in a sling.
SECRET WAR #1 (1-2)
One evening. This segment occurs after SECWAR:FFNF (40-41), must occur after BW5 6 (21-22) and IM:H 6, and probably
occurs after NFHC 1, AAF2 12/2 (19-20), PPTSS2 20, XU2 8 (8:3), and CA5 4. Given Logan's comments in PULSE 9, this
segment must occur after W3 31 (19-23). Cage and Jessica return to his apartment, where a woman waits. Jessica's pregnancy
still isn't showing.
PULSE #6 - FB - FB (8:1)
The same evening as SECWAR 1 (1-2). The woman addresses Cage.
PULSE #8 - FB (1-2)
The same evening as SECWAR 1 (1-2). The woman starts to attack and Cage tries to push Jessica out of harm's way, but an
SECRET WAR #1 (3) ~ PULSE #6 - FB (4)
The same evening as PULSE 8-FB (1-2). The explosion rips apart Cage's apartment. We see light clothing suggesting a warm
PULSE #6 - FB (5-9)
The same evening as SECWAR 1 (1-3). It is "one week" before PULSE 6. Cage and Jessica arrive at the hospital. Cage is in
serious condition, but doctors cannot treat him because of his unbreakable skin. Police question the injured Jessica.
SECRET WAR #3 (1-4)
The same night as SECWAR 1 (24). It is Peter and M.J.'s "anniversary," so this segment must occur on the same day of the year
as ASM@ 21. Peter daydreams of the Secret War as he and M.J. dine in a restaurant.
SECRET WAR #3 - FB (17:3)
The same night as SECWAR 1 (24). As Captain America returns home from "the mansion" (perhaps dealing with salvage and
security operations at the destroyed Avengers Embassy), he fends off an attack by Lady Octopus and the new Hobgoblin
SECRET WAR #3/2
The same night as SECWAR 3-FB (17:3). At "11:43 PM," Cap reports his attack to SHIELD and learns that Cage was also
attacked and is in the hospital.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (3:2)
The same night as SECWAR 3/2. Kat Farrell sends an e-mail to Robbie Robertson reporting on the attacks on Luke Cage and
Steve Rogers. Given the timing of W3 20-31, the date of the e-mail,"Thursday, February 12, 2004 5:17 PM," is probably topical.
Monday, May 4
SECRET WAR #1 (4-5)
The early morning after SECWAR 1 (1-3). The attack on Cage "last night" is reported to Nick Fury in the SHIELD Helicarrier.
There is a reference to the U.S. Secretary of Defense, but that person is unnamed; this means that this story cannot occur during
the time following A3 70 (16-20) in which Tony Stark is vying for the job, in IM3 73-86 - the unnamed secretary is probably
PULSE #6 - FB (10:1-10:3)
The early morning SECWAR 1 (4-5). Jessica and Danny sit by Cage's hospital bedside.
SECRET WAR #1 (6:1-6:4)
The same early morning as PULSE 6-FB (10:1-10:3). Danny reads a sports column that reports that the Indiana Pacers are "7
and 1 overall" and "have won six straight since losing at New Jersey on Nov. 1;" these references must be topical.
SECRET WAR #1 (6:5-7:3) ~ PULSE #6 - FB (10:4-11:2)
The same early morning as SECWAR 1 (6:1-6:4). Fury talks to Danny and Jessica asks Fury if he knows who the attacker was.

The same early morning as SECWAR 1 (6-7). A tense moment between Jessica and Nick.
SECRET WAR #1 (7:4-7:5)
The same early morning as PULSE 6-FB (11:3-11:5). It is "one year" after SECWAR 1-FB (8-18). More tenseness.
SECRET WAR #1 (24)
The same early morning as SECWAR 1 (7:4-7:5). Nick, Danny, and Jessica hover around Cage's hospital bed.
SECRET WAR #2 (20:1-20:2)
The same early morning as SECWAR 3/2. Nick, Jessica, and Danny are still gathered around Cage's bed.
SECRET WAR #2 (20:3-21) ~ PULSE #6 - FB (11:6-12)
The same early morning as SECWAR 2 (20:1-20:2). It is "one year" after SECWAR 2-FB (1-8). Cap bursts into the hospital
room and attacks and curses Fury for what he's done.
SECRET WAR #3 (5)
The same early morning as SECWAR 2 (20-21). Peter Parker is awakened from a dream about the Secret War.
SECRET WAR #3 (6:1-6:2)
The same early morning as SECWAR 3 (5). Grasping Fury, Cap yells at him.
SECRET WAR #3 (6:3) ~ PULSE #6 - FB (13:1)
The same early morning as SECWAR 3 (6:1-6:2). Fury tells Cap to stand down.
PULSE #6 - FB (13:2)

The same early morning as SECWAR 3 (6:4-6:5). Cap tries to get the "pregnant" Jessica and Danny to leave the hospital with
PULSE #6 - FB (14)
The same early morning as SECWAR 3 (6-7). Jessica calls Matt Murdock and leaves a message about the attack and the hospital
scene with Fury and Cap.
SECRET WAR #3 (8-22)
The same early morning as PULSE 6-FB (14). "Tonight's the anniversary" of the Secret War. This segment must occur after
Constrictor has had time to heal after S-H3 9-FB (22:1); he may have used some of his settlement money to see a superhuman
healer. Spidey heads to Matt Murdock's and discusses the dream with Daredevil. When Matt plays back the phone message
from Jessica, they head to the hospital. On the way, they're ambushed by Scorcher and a new Diamondback. After the villains
flee, Spidey and DD meet up with Cap and Fury at the hospital, where they are attacked by a horde of tech-based super-villains.
PULSE #6 - FB (15-21)
The same early morning as SECWAR 3 (8-22). Jessica is caught in the destruction during the attack on the hospital and she
can't find Cage.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (4)
The same day as PULSE 6-FB (15-21). NYPD officers exchange information on the hospital attack.
SECRET WAR #4
The same early morning as SECWAR 3 (5-22). Wolverine is attacked by Mandroids at the Xavier Institute. In Manhattan, the
horde of hi-tech villains battle the heroes, who are joined "at one in the frickin' morning" by the Fantastic Four, who are wearing
distinctively different costumes. The Scorpion is one of the villains, but despite the SHIELD file on him, this Scorpion may not
be Mac Gargan; it may the person who acquired the Scorpion costume in the auction shown in M/KS-M 12 (19-23). Lucia Von
Barda shows up to claim revenge on Nick Fury. She unites the villains, whose high-tech armors together form a giant bomb that
she detonates. Leafy trees at Westchester. Full moon.
SECRET WAR #5 - FB
The same early morning as SECWAR 4. It is exactly "one year" after SECWAR 5-FB-FB (19-23/24). This story must occur
before PUN7 13. Bardas is destroyed and Daredevil is injured in the explosion. The heroes are joined by the Astonishing X-
Men and they all demand an explanation from Fury. The heroes learn all about the Secret War and the brainwashing they
underwent to forget it. Logan guts Fury, only to discover that it's an LMD. Fury disappeared after the threat was over. Daisy
bids farewell to the heroes. We see the twin lights that replaced the World Trade Center.
SECRET WAR #5
The same morning as ("six hours" after) SECWAR 5-FB. It is a "couple of weeks" before SECWAR 5/2 and may be more than
just "a couple months" before W3 37 (1-15). While Sitwell and Quartermain observe, Maria Hill interrogates Daisy Johnson,
who is eighteen years old. Hill, who now has Fury's job, gets nowhere with Daisy. Fury's whereabouts are unknown, but after
the interrogation, he contacts Daisy.
The same morning as SECWAR 4. This story must occur after DD2 61 (22), given that the newspaper edition from that segment
shows up here as an old newspaper. Today's Daily Bugle headline is a story about the Hulk's destruction in Arizona, so this
story probably occurs the day after H/T:HK 4. At "six in the morning," Ben Urich finds Jessica at her destroyed apartment.
Trying to find the missing Cage, they run into obstacles with both police and the Bugle because of SHIELD involvement. Jessica
heads to Misty Knight's apartment, but she faints (because of her pregnancy) on the way and three Hydra agents find her. People
are wearing jackets and coats and we see green grass and trees in New York.
SECRET WAR: FROM THE FILES OF NICK FURY (45-46)
The same morning as PULSE 7. At "9:22 AM," a SHIELD operator reports in to Val Fontaine that SHIELD has lost contact
with Jessica Jones after she contacted Misty Knight, Danny Rand, and Agent Aspen. The recording date of "6/13/05" must be
X-FORCE v2 #1
One day, shortly after C&DP 14 (1-20). It is "several months" after XFOR:SH 3. Cable and Domino meet up with Shatterstar
and they battle time-travelers looking to steal the Five Fingers of Annihilation, a sword that is capable of killing the Skornn, a
mutant-eating creature the time-travelers seek to protect. Green grass and bare trees.
X-FORCE v2 #2
Perhaps the same day as XFOR2 1. Cable recruits Warpath, Sunspot, and Meltdown to join him, Domino, and Shatterstar; it
does appear from the dialog that they've just hooked up with Cable - to wit, Warpath notes, "But how does this affect any of us
now, Cable? Roberto and I both have responsibilities to X-Corp - especially now that they've come under attack" (a reference to
XCAL3 5). The group discovers that Jon Spectre is in Kentucky, where he tells Sam Guthrie a future tale of Nathan. Sam
apparently quit the X-Men following his injury in UX 447. Sam is sowing seeds (or maybe spreading fertilizer) in Kentucky,
where we see green grass and trees - this may be an indication of spring.
X-FORCE v2 #3
The same day as XFOR2 2. It is "a few days" before XFOR2 4. Cable and company fight Spectre and Cannonball, and when
Sam gets injured, Sunspot switches sides. Cable aborts his mission to get Sam and leaves him with Roberto and Spectre.
Meanwhile, Skornn rises at the ruins of a Bulgarian temple. Green grass and trees in Kentucky.
The same rainy night as SW:FFNF (45-46). After Ben Urich gets a call from Al Mackenzie, a SHIELD informant who wants to
expose Nick Fury and the Secret War, Jameson okays an investigation. After being asleep "all day," Jessica awakens in a Hydra
facility. Hydra agent Cohen offers her a job with Hydra, but she refuses. Then Clay Quartermain and SHIELD burst in and
NEW AVENGERS #14 - FB (16)
The same night as SECWAR 5. From Cage's hospital, Fury calls Jessica Drew and tells her he's going underground as a result
of the fallout over the Secret War.
Tuesday, May 5
PULSE #9 (1-20)
The day after PULSE 8. Jessica reams out Jameson, then she, Kat Farrell, and Urich run into Al Mackenzie, who tips them to go
upstate to find Cage. In an upstate bar, they encounter a bitter Logan, who rants about Fury, SHIELD, the Hand, and being
"raped" in body and mind - probably placing this segment, aside from SECWAR 5-FB (which occurs before this), as one of
Logan's first appearances after W3 31 (19-23), and thus before X:PE 1 and A4 1 (1-8). Logan clues them in about where to find
Cage, at a medical center that treats super-heroes. Once there, they encounter Danny Rand, who doesn't trust Jessica and refuses
to let her see Cage. After Misty Knight intervenes, Jessica sees Cage recuperating. A transmitted image of Fury appears saying
the cat's out of the bag and that no one will be hearing from him again.
ANNIHILATION: RONAN #2 - FB (10:2)
One day. Cerise and Nebula rally in the ruins of a settlement.
SENSATIONAL SPIDER-MAN v2 #38 - FB (4:2-4:3)
One day. The hospitalized Eddie Brock (bald) listens to the piece of Venom that is still inside him.
Wednesday, May 6
PULSE #9 (21-22)
The day after PULSE 9 (1-20). Jameson and Robertson debate about running a story exposing Fury but decide to run a story on
Spider-Man causing mayhem with New Jersey traffic and a piece about the possibility of Matt Murdock facing trial.
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #2
One day, long enough after SSO 1 (8-22) for intensive training to have occurred, but not too long, as the squad seems to be
getting basic orientation info. Rhodes and Val discuss the recruits as the Sentinel Squad trains. The squad is anxious to get an
assignment, and Lazer gives them one - help SHIELD protect a senator seeking re-election from a suspected assassination
attempt by Hydra. At the sight of what appears to be a campaign rally, a Hydra agent deposits a "mystery weapon" as he blows
himself up. The weapon is the Growing Man, and the Sentinel Squad fights him. Briggs gets claustrophobia inside his Sentinel
and freezes in battle while the Growing Man rips Slayton's Sentinel apart. Lex finishes off the Growing Man by secretly using
his mutant power. Val demands a debriefing "tomorrow morning," and as the team argues, Slayton is hauled away on a stretcher,
minus his legs. Green grass and trees.
Thursday, May 7
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #3
The day after SSO 2. While conducting Operation: Savage Land, Rhodey and a squad of fellow Sentinel soldiers are struck
down and taken prisoner by the Savage Land Mutates. Val Cooper asks for an accounting of the battle against Growing Man and
Meld covers for Lex. Val relieves Briggs of his command. The trashed Sentinel husks of Rhodey's team are returned to the
O*N*E base and the recruits are sent to the Savage Land, joined by recovered paraplegic Slayton. There, they meet their new
commander, John Steele and, with another squad, storm a Mutate compound that "showed up a month ago" on satellite images.
The Sentinel Squad battles telekinetic dinosaurs. Lex demonstrates his mutant power again by frying several dinos, then he
orders his squad to retreat in defiance of Steele's order to stand their ground. Steele and company get creamed and the six
recruits are the only ones left. Lex leaves his Sentinel and announces that he has a plan to rescue Rhodey and company.
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #4
The same day as SSO 3. Brainchild outlines his plans to the captive Rhodey and Agent Skylark, who head-butts the villain into
unconsciousness. Briggs, Lex, and Meld make their way across the Savage Land in a stealth Sentinel operated by Slayton. A
trio of remote-controlled decoy Sentinels keeps the telekentic dinosaurs occupied while Lex and Meld find the lab from which
the dinos are controlled. There they find and free Rhodey and Skylark. Rhodey dons his armor and the team, except for the
missing Briggs, works on building a makeshift Sentinel from spare parts used by defeated squads. They defeat the dinos. At
O*N*E headquarters, Briggs tells Lazer that Lex is a mutant.
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #5 (1-2)
The same day as SSO 4. It is "three weeks" before SSO 5 (3-17). The squad returns to O*N*E headquarters and Lazer orders
Lexington's arrest for defying orders and concealing the fact that he's a mutant. Rhodey vouches for Lexington and stays his
arrest, but Lazer replaces Lexington with Briggs as squad leader.
X-FORCE v2 #4
One day, "a few days" after XFOR2 3. Wolverine tries to free Caliban from the Watchtower, but runs into X-Force, who are also
trying to retrieve him. The heroes are attacked by the Administrator of the Watchtower and Deadpool enters the fray. Then
"Stryfe" and the Mutant Liberation Front arrive, including Cannonball and Jon Spectre.
X-FORCE v2 #5
The same day as XFOR2 4. Thing notes that Reed and Sue are off shopping today. Thing: "Great timing fer the Avengers t'get
all mealy-mouthed about their charter. Can't afford t'run the group, my butt. We've been bankrupt before, didn't stop us."
Johnny: "Actually it did." This dialog places this issue after A:FINALE and one or both of the story arcs in which the FF were
bankrupt; I have this story after both. "Stryfe" reveals himself to Cable as Domino from an alternate future and X-Force and the
MLF, with Deadpool and Wolverine, decide to join forces to fight Skornn. Skornn shows up in Manhattan and starts eating
people. The Shi'ar detect Skornn's presence and call the Imperial Guard together to teleport to earth to battle him. The Thing
and Human Torch battle Skornn, then X-Force and the MLF arrive on the scene.
X-FORCE v2 #6
The same day as XFOR2 5. This story may occur four months, not "four days," before C&DP 15 (6-11). Logan must appear
here sometime before A4 1. X-Force, the MLF, Wolverine, Thing, and Torch battle Skornn and the Helix, the modified humans
from the future who unleashed him. Cable seemingly sacrifices himself in a psimitar energy burst that dispatches Skornn. The
Imperial Guard detect Skornn's disappearance.
DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION #6 (1)
One day, "seven years" after DD:R 6-FB (2). Matt gets a letter from Emily Flood dated "May."
Friday, May 8
One "Friday morning." Nick Fury arranges to have Leon Rastovich released from prison to smoke out Frank Castle for a job for
the military, with whom Fury is dealing in order to "get SHIELD back for good," so this story probably occurs after SECWAR 5.
X-MEN: PHOENIX - ENDSONG #1
Early one morning. According to UX 460, this story must occur after W3 31 (19-23), and thus likely after PULSE 9 (1-20).
Given Colossus' presence in X:PE 5, this story must occur after UX 460 (1-14). The Phoenix Force is reborn prematurely,
occupies the corpse of Jean Grey, encounters Logan, and flies away. Beast, Cyclops, Emma, and the Cuckoos also appear. Green
grass and trees and fireflies at Xavier's.
X-MEN: PHOENIX - ENDSONG #2
The same day as X:PE 1. Logan reports back and the X-Men prepare to face Phoenix, as do the Shi'ar responsible for its rebirth.
Quentin Quire emerges from his capsule and, learning that Sophie is dead, exhumes her corpse and resolves to see if the Phoenix
Force can resurrect her. Warren appears here, and since he gets involved in the fight, this story likely occurs after XU2 8 (1-5);
Warren may actually be at Westchester in connection with the assignment that Scott gives him in XU2 8 (1-5). Scott, Emma,
Ororo, and Kurt are in their Reload costumes. Peter is mentioned as being at the Institute, so it must be after ASTONX3 6 (20-
23). The Institute is rebuilt. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
X-MEN: PHOENIX - ENDSONG #3
The same day as X:PE 2. The X-Men leave Colossus behind to go face Phoenix, but she escapes with Logan and the team faces
the Shi'ar, who want to kill Quire because his omega level power makes for an attractive Phoenix host. Logan weakens the
Phoenix enough for Jean to take over and bury herself in the Arctic. But the Phoenix tries to seize Scott. Leafy trees at
X-MEN: PHOENIX - ENDSONG #4
The same day as X:PE 3. The X-Men trick the Phoenix Force into occupying Emma's body, then they trap Emma and Scott in a
chamber constructed by Beast to contain the energy. Then Quire arrives, seeking to set the Phoenix Force free.
X-MEN: PHOENIX - ENDSONG #5
The same day as X:PE 4. This story occurs before UX 460 (15-22). Quire releases the Phoenix Force, which resurrects Sophie
momentarily, long enough for Sophie to reject Quentin. Jean rises independently and reclaims the Phoenix Force from Emma's
body. Scott deduces why Jean/Phoenix has returned - to find true love, not to satiate a hunger. Emma and the Cuckoos find all
the active X-Men, who reach out to Jean mentally and show her how much she's loved. Then the Shi'ar activate an event
horizon that whisks Jean/Phoenix away. Thanks to Jean, the X-Men are spared. Quentin returns to his to test tube. "Later," the
Phoenix Force appears to one of the Cuckoos. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION #6 (3-4)
One day. Matt meets with Emily and Constance. Matt and Constance catch up. Matt is noted as being outed as Daredevil.
GAMBIT v4 #7 - FB
One day, "three weeks" before GAM4 7 (1-20). Emery gets yelled at by his aunt for using his mutant powers to steal. She
smacks him and he leaves.
Saturday, May 9
PUNISHER v7 #13
One day, the "year" after PUN7 6. Fury says he's trying to "get SHIELD back for good," so he appears here after SECWAR 5.
After searching for "two days," Frank is in a bar looking for Leon Rastovich, who was just released from prison and who Frank
tried to kill "two years ago." An old Russian immigrant named Alexandr Baranovich Formichenko starts bemoaning the fall of
Russia and badmouths Rastovich in a drunken speech. Thugs loyal to Rastovich start to rough up the old man, but Frank pulls
them aside, interrogates them about Leon's whereabouts, and kills them. That night, Frank kills Rastovich at his mother's house.
Leaving the scene, he runs into Nick Fury, who explains that he's the one responsible for getting Leon out of jail as a way to
smoke out Frank. Castle and Fury go to a diner, where Nick explains that he wants Frank to go on a top secret mission at the
behest of the U.S. army. In exchange for completing this mission, Fury will supply Frank with access to criminal records kept by
the F.B.I., I.N.S., Coast Guard, and police. Frank takes the job and leaves Fury. Meanwhile the army brass who arranged things
with Fury authorize a CIA-type operative named Rawlins in the Mideast to initiate a plan.
DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION #6 (5-6)
One day. Matt visits Joel at Holman Correctional Center.
One day. "Nearly nine hours" after the space station Simulacra explodes "this morning," the FF arrive unannounced at the
Xavier Institute and they get into a fight with Logan before the FF ask the mutant team for help in rescuing Simulacra survivors.
A team of FF and X-Men members heads to the station and encounters the Brood. The tension between the two teams may be a
holdover from their encounter in ASTONX3 7 or it could be the result of Logan's attack in W3 22. Reed finally learns that
Xavier is no longer at the Institute. Gambit is sighted, and he, Cyclops, Emma, Nightcrawler, Logan, Storm, and Beast all appear
in their Reload costumes, so this story must occur after X 165 (9-24) and thus after the Christmas break shown in M/HOL'04
1/2. The Institute appears to be complete and intact. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
The same day as X4 1. The space-bound FF/X-Men team battle the Brood and discover that the space station crew have become
hosts for Brood eggs. Reed detects a cosmic storm and recalls the mission, but it's too late; when the heroes land back on earth,
the X-Men have developed FF-like powers.
The same day as X4 2. Reed, Johnny, Scott, Hank, and Ororo rush to the landing site and battle the mutated Logan, Emma,
Remy, and Kurt. Logan escapes, but the others are taken back to the Baxter Building for examination by Reed and Hank. The
Brood enter earth's atmosphere aboard a space shuttle from Simulacra. The FF are headquartered in the Baxter Building. Hank
notes that secondary mutation is a phenomenon that "we've been noticing over the past few years." Green trees in upstate New
The same day as X4 3. Johnny Sue, and Storm cause the shuttle to land safely in an evacuated midtown Manhattan. Hank and
Reed come up with a possible solution for the mutated X-Men. The Thing and Cyclops find Logan in Canada, subdue him, and
deliver him to the Baxter Building. Meanwhile, Brood ships appear over Manhattan. Beast notes, "given what's happened to the
Avengers of late, it's up to us to clean up here" - thus it's likely sometime between the disbanding of the Avengers in A:FINALE
and publicity of the team's reformation in A4 7 (1-6). Green trees in Canada.
X4 #5 (1-22)
The same day as X4 4. Because Reed only learned that Xavier was no longer with the Institute in X4 1, this segment must occur
before NA:I2 2. Reed cures the mutated X-Men, who then join the battle against the Brood. Reed and Emma use Cerebro to
create a mass hallucination among the Brood that Galactus and Phoenix have arrived and the aliens retreat in fear.
Sunday, May 10: Mothers' Day
PUNISHER v7 #14 - FB (2, 4, 6-8)
The day after PUN7 13. The Punisher is picked up by Fury and is flown to a military base in Rhode Island where Nick gives
Frank a briefing on the objective - go to a Siberian nuclear missile silo where Russian scientists are experimenting on a 6-year-
old Russian girl named Galina Stenkov, into whom a virus code-named Barbarosa had been injected by her scientist father. Fury
says that they have about "48 hours" to retrieve the girl and get a blood sample from her, so that they can save the virus, which is
fading from Galina's system. Fury also says the U.S. military also insists that Frank be accompanied by a Delta Force operative
named Martin Vanheim.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #10/2 - FB
One day. May Rider sees Spider-Man nab some perps and help a victim.
DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION #6 (7)
One day. Family and friends visit Joel at Holman Correctional Center one last time the day before the execution. Joel's and
Adrienne's son Daniel is there. Later that night, someone tries to call Matt at his hotel but hangs up.
DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION #6 - FB (15:2-16)
The same day as DD:R 6 (7). Karla Faye finds evidence that Howard killed their son, she tries to call Matt at his hotel, but
Howard stops her.

The same day as DD:R 6-FB (14-15). Howard goes home to re-sedate his wife, but Daredevil has freed her. Secrets are
revealed. Stonehouse and some cops arrive to arrest Howard.
PUNISHER v7 #14
The day after PUN7 14-FB. Frank and Vanheim parachute into Siberia and, posing as local peasants, make their way to Suhdek,
a town next to the missile silo. There they start a bar fight so that in the commotion they can knock out the two off-duty soldiers
present and steal their uniforms, IDs and jeep. With these stolen items, they get into the silo and take the elevator down below to
retrieve Galina. Meanwhile, Fury meets with the American generals, who tell Fury he didn't need to share all of the information
on Barbarosa with Frank, but Fury balks at this. Fury leaves the room and the army brass say they're going ahead with their own
secret plan to make sure Frank succeeds. In Saudi Arabia, Rawlins boards a plane for New York. He sees another plane taking
off, which is heading to Russia. He has put some trained operatives on that plane, and has set a plan into motion for the U.S.
Army. Snow in Siberia. Full moon.
PUNISHER v7 #15
The same day as PUN7 14. Frank and Vanheim rescue Galina and Frank gets her to trust him. They start to leave the missile
silo, but on the way out they see some Russian soldiers repairing a tank out front. Vanheim panics and shoots them, and so
Frank, Vanheim, and Galina duck back into the silo's elevator and take it back down as the Russians start to open fire on them.
Meanwhile, Colonel Lugansky and Major Yeremin, who are in charge of the missile silo, enjoy a lazy morning when a car pulls
up carrying General Zakharov and his lackey, "the Mongolian," who have come to take Galina back to Moscow. A soldier
rushes into the office to report on the gunfight at the silo. Back at the Silo, Frank loads up on weaponry , heads back up the
elevator and destroys a big chunk of the Russian military lining up outside, before retreating back down below. Meanwhile,
Fury, in bed with three hookers, gets a phone call from the U.S. generals telling him that their spy satellites have detected gunfire
at the missile silo. Fury tells them not to panic and hangs up.
PUNISHER v7 #16
The same day as PUN7 15. Frank keeps guard on the elevator shaft, killing Russian troops as they try and climb down the shaft
and get at him. Vanheim reports that the elevator appears to be the only way out. Zakharov receives reports from his soldiers
about the infiltrators and is convinced hey're Americans trying to extract the virus, but Lugansky believes they're Islamic
terrorists. Zakharov sends in the Mongolian. Meanwhile, back in America, Fury stops by the army base, to see the U.S. generals
are in a panic, knowing there's a possible international incident about to explode over in Russia. Fury tells them to calm down,
that Frank will finish the job, and he turns around and leaves. The generals aren't satisfied with that, but they reassure
themselves that Rawlins' men are about to spring into action. Just then, on a plane heading from Saudi Arabia for Moscow, a
group of men take control of the plane and bark on the radio about how Russia will pay for siding with America in the war on
terror. The Kremlin aims missiles at the plane. Back in Siberia, the Mongolian sneaks down the elevator shaft and slips by
Frank. He knocks out Vanheim and Galina calls out for help. Frank runs back to her aid, but the Mongolian gets the drop on
him and knocks Frank unconscious.
PUNISHER v7 #17
The same day as PUN7 16. Russian defense missiles shoot the plane out of the sky and Moscow sends a priority fax to Zakharov
and Lugansky about the terrorists on the airplane. Lugansky takes this as evidence that the people in the missile silo are Islamic
terrorists, but Zakharov still thinks it's Americans. Inside the silo, Frank fades in and out of consciousness and the Mongolian
tells the Russians upstairs that it's safe to come down. Galina begs the Mongolian for help, but he slaps the girl. Frank finds the
strength to get up and rip the Mongolian limb from limb. Frank then kills the Russians who are entering through the elevator
shaft. When he comes back, he finds Vanheim has woken up and is trying to inject the girl with something. Frank beats up
Vanheim and gets him to talk. Vanheim explains that if it looks like they can't get the girl out, he was told by the generals to
take a blood sample from her and kill her. Frank orders Vanheim to start operating the computer, that he's got a plan.
Meanwhile, back in America, the U.S. generals are happy that their terrorist plane attack went as planned until Fury steps back
into the room. He asks what they're up to and after they explain what their plan was, Fury repeatedly whips his belt over the
head of the general who concocted the plan. He tells the generals that they better hope the Russians don't see through this and
pray that Frank completes the job. Fury walks out. Just then, Lugansky and Zakharov get a message from the "terrorists" inside
the missile silo - the Russians are to stop their assault on the silo and let them escape, or they will set off all of the nukes inside
the silo, aiming them for Russian cities.
PUNISHER v7 #18 (1-15)
The same day as PUN7 17. It must be three days before PUN7 18 (16-21). This segment is supposed to occur "last year"
relative to PUN7 19 (4-22) and the "end of last year" relative to PUN7 23 (12-22), but this can't be right, considering that PUN7
1 is also supposed to occur "last year" relative to PUN7 19-24. Zakharov tells Moscow that he has the situation under control.
Lugansky is in disbelief and says he's relieving Zakharov from command, but Zakharov shoots and kills Lugansky. The first of
the missiles launches into the air and out of its hatch jump Frank, Galina, and Vanheim, parachuting back down to earth. The
missile lands in a snowbank and none of the missiles inside the silo go off because Frank had Vanheim reprogrammed them
before they left. Zakharov orders soldiers to search the area where the missile landed. Vanheim loses his backpack and coat
while parachuting. Frank has them draw straws to see who gets the only other coat. Frank wins, and so he, with Galina wrapped
with him in his coat, marches to the coast, where a Navy submarine waits to pick them up. Vanheim tries to follow but dies as
nighttime falls and the temperature drops to 20 below zero.
Tuesday, May 12
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #10/2
One school day. Maya Rider, who was in Peter Parker's science class "last semester," plants a bomb in her purse, intending to
kill Spider-Man, with whom she is obsessed. A would-be thief snatches the purse, but Peter subdues him. Peter talks to Maya
and becomes her new hero. We see some light clothing and green trees in New York.
UNCANNY X-MEN #460 (15-22)
One day, probably more than "several weeks" after UX 460 (1-14). This segment occurs after X:PE 5. Rachel and Kitty are still
not on good terms. Psylocke thinks she sees her brother Jamie. While Betsey trains in the Danger Room, Juggernaut and
Nocturne materialize from MojoWorld, thanks to a presumably possessed Spiral, but the inter-dimensional travel is a trick by
Spiral that allows Mojo to enter the X-Men's world. Logan is not present for this story. Green grass and trees, warm weather,
and garden planting season at Westchester.
UNCANNY X-MEN #461
The same day as UX 460 (15-22). This story must occur before CU/X-23 1 (1-20). This story may occur before XU2 9/2-FB
(5:1) and must occur before the end of the school year, since students, including Hellion, are here. Because the Danger Room is
operational in UX 460 (15-22), this story must occur before ASTONX3 7. Mojo is upset that Psylocke's bionic eyes no longer
exist. He turns Juggernaut, Nocturne, and the rest of the XSE team into X-babies and summons his Exile Legal Eagles to chase
the team around the Institute while the Astonishing team (including Colossus) and some of the cast of NX helplessly observe,
shut outside by Mojo. The heroes defeat Mojo and Spiral and return to normal. Emma states that she'll take care of Mojo.
Green trees at Westchester.
GENERATION M #5 - FB (7:6)
One day. After Ken leaves her, Sally drinks to cope with her despair.
Wednesday, May 13
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1 - FB (14:4)
One early morning, shortly after YA 6 (18-22). The Young Avengers make their debut in their new costumes with new members
Kate and Cassie. They battle the Shocker as he tries to rob a bank.
YOUNG AVENGERS #7 - FB
The same early morning as YAS 1-FB (14:4). The Young Avengers defeat the Shocker, as shown in a newspaper photo and on
YOUNG AVENGERS #7
The same day as YA 7-FB. It is a school day, "a few weeks" after YA 6 (16-17). This story probably occurs before ASMU2 12
(1-10). Cap gets upset upon seeing news reports of the Young Avengers' exploit. When Billy tries telling his parents about his
Wiccan identity, his parents assume he's coming out about a relationship with Ted. Peggy Burdick wonders if Stature is
daughter. Eli avoids telling his grandmother about his being Patriot, but his grandfather knows. Cap, Tony, and an obviously
pregnant Jessica Jones discuss the new Vision, who has the capabilities of the former Vision, but none of the experience. Cap
goes to see Eli's grandparents and Jessica sees the Burdicks to blow the whistle on the Young Avengers. Billy, Ted, Cassie, and
Kate all meet, but Eli fails to show; he's encountered a drug operation run by Mr. Hyde. The Young Avengers track him to
Hyde's place and battle the villain. Eli runs off and injects himself with the drug. We see both long- and short-sleeve shirts and
green trees and shrubs in New York.
YOUNG AVENGERS #8
The same day as YA 7. This story must occur before S-H4 1 and probably before TOXIN 1 (1-17). It is "over a year" after
CREW 7 (20-22) and "three days" before YAS 1. As the Young Avengers battle Mr. Hyde, Cap talks to Eli's grandmother and
discovers that he has no natural powers. Jessica Jones tells Cassie's mother about her Stature power and the mom expresses
concern over Cassie's heart condition. A drugged-up Patriot defeats Hyde and when the Avengers arrive at the scene, everyone
tries to get him to recognize that he needs help. Wiccan stops Eli, who later awakens in Avengers Tower, purged of the drug. Eli
admits his lie to everyone and quits the team.
X4 #5 (23)
One day, "days" after X4 5 (1-22). This segment occurs before X 166. The Thing joins the X-Men in a baseball game at the
Xavier Institute. We see green grass and trees and light clothing at Westchester.
Thursday, May 14
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #11 (1-10)
One day, "two weeks" before ASMU2 11 (11). As Spidey fights the Hulk in New York on live television, Max Dillon bets a
bunch of people in a bar that he knows Spidey's next battle moves. He cleans up. It's "the Hulk's third rampage since..."
PUNISHER v7 #18 (16-21:1)
One day, three days after PUN7 18 (1-15) and "three days" before PUN7 18 (21-22). Frank and Galina step off a military plane
at the army base where Fury and the generals are. The generals are informed that Frank wouldn't let any military scientists
aboard the submarine take a sample of Galina's blood, which means the virus is already dead in her system. The generals start to
have their soldiers escort Fury off the base and arrest Frank, but Fury walks over and tells the soldiers they're going to have to go
through both of them to get to Galina. Fury and Frank leave the base without being touched by the soldiers. Frank then gives
Galina over to Fury, saying Fury will find her a good home.
DAREDEVIL: REDEMPTION #6 (23-24)
One day. Howard is in a holding cell at Kramer County Jail. An editor's box tells us that he's eventually found guilty of killing
Bradley Gideon, and that he's now on death row.
X-MEN v2 #166
One day. Emma's reference to the X-Men's adventure with the FF in X 170 means that this story must occur after X4 5 (23). It
is "four days" after an outbreak of violence in Calvary and "one day" after the X-Men stopped getting distress signals from the
South Pole. Havok (now without a cowl), Polaris, Rogue, Gambit, and Iceman find a bunch of corpses and the word "Golgotha"
written in blood at the site of an attempted mutant utopia at the South Pole. Then they encounter mutant zombies and a bunch of
psychopaths who they battle. Emma Frost shows up and they probe the mind of one of the psychopaths before he dies. Full
X-MEN v2 #167 (1-16)
The same night as X 166. The X-Men find and subdue the monster responsible for the deaths at the South Pole. Joined by
Logan, they bring the creature back to the Institute for study and Emma assigns the team with going to Calvary. A mutant named
Boy rounds up a bunch of mutants and they kill everyone at the home of Boy's master, Jim Collins. Logan refers to "winter," but
it is not known if it is a Northern or Southern hemisphere reference. Full moon.
NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #4
One night, presumably "two weeks" after NFHC 3 (5-22), since all of England has now been converted into Merlin's world of magic. Gorilla Man puts down an escape attempt by Goom. At Stonehenge, Hellstrom attempts to form an alliance between Merlin and the Lords of the Living Lightning, but Merlin double crosses Hellstrom and attacks their stronghold, forcing the Lords to swear allegiance to Merlin. Merlin reveals that he knows all about Area 13, and Lilith's and Vampire by Night's mission. In the lounge in Area 13, Warwolf, Brother Voodoo and Beemer discuss the mission, and Brother Voodoo is surprised to learn they didn't use any "conjuries" to hide the vampires' presence from Merlin. At Stonehenge, Lilith and Hellstorm, who have joined Merlin, leave Vampire by Night staked out, awaiting sunrise. Merlin tells her she has served her purpose. At Area 13, Brother Voodoo says that if they didn't use protection, then Merlin knows everything. At Stonehenge, Merlin asks Lilith if there's anyone at Area 13 that she wants spared, and Lilith answers no. Meanwhile, Hellstorm advises Telesti that Merlin should have staked out Lilith, along with Vampire by Night, and Telesti expresses surprise that Hellstorm survived a previous encounter with Lilith. Merlin stages an all-out attack on Area 13. The Commandos raise the battle cry.
NICK FURY'S HOWLING COMMANDOS #5
The same night as NFHC 4. The Commandos fight off Merlin's forces and use the portal to travel to Stonehenge to take the
battle to the enemy. Groot and other giant monsters break free from Area 13 and follow through the portal. Merlin's forces
retreat, and the Commandos set out to track them down. They are joined by Groot, who offers to help. Meanwhile, a fairy visits
Vampire by Night and tells her he can free her, for a price. He says he knows that she's special, that the rising sun won't hurt her,
and the fairies kept that fact from Merlin. The battle over, Brother Voodoo theorizes that Merlin is controlling or influencing the
various mythical species, and that once the portal was closed, he lost control over them, and they lost the will to fight. At
Stonehenge, the fairy tells Vampire by Night that when everything is over, the fairies want to be able to "stick around." Vampire
by Night hooks up with Groot and the other Commandos. At Area 13, Beemer chastises Quartermain for rude behavior as
commander, and at Stonehenge, Merlin is ushered like royalty through the streets of the village, cheered by the masses.
The same night as NFHC 5. Area 13 sends a cadre of sorcerers to Stonehenge using captured Eraser technology. Vampire by
Night explains to the other Commandos the deal she made with the fairy. Meanwhile, in the village, Hellstorm and Telesti
continue to debate who is using whom: Lilith or Merlin. In Merlin's room, Lilith believes she has turned Merlin into a vampire,
but Merlin rises in his reflection in a mirror and presumably kills Lilith. Outside the village, the Commandos plan their attack
and are joined by Brother Voodoo and another mystic. Brother Voodoo reports that the mystics have almost shut down Merlin's
security perimeter, leading the way for a full scale attack by Area 13 forces, led by Goom and other giant monsters. Meanwhile,
Quartermain has called in some chips, and Mole Man uses his technology to create a sinkhole beneath Salisbury. Gorilla Man
and Warwolf storm Merlin's room, where he tells them that the auguries within Lilith's ashes convinced him that he can't win,
and so he quietly gives up and vanishes. Lilith revives and says she was faking it, and manipulated her ashes to trick Merlin into
believing he was doomed to fail, all according to Beemer's plan. Hellstorm turns on Telesti and apparently kills him, revealing
that he, too, has been working for Area 13 and was undercover for SHIELD in the Lords of the Living Lightning. Hellstorm
resents that Lilith was sent in behind him, and "three years, six months and seventeen days" of undercover work was ruined.
Quartermain and Beemer learn to accept working with each other. Merlin's shadow falls over the Lord's inner council.
Friday, May 15
X-MEN v2 #167 (17-23)
The day after X 167 (1-16). TV news reports on the Collins killings "last night." In probing the creature, Emma learns a
horrible truth as the X-Men encounter another "Golgotha" written in blood at Calvary, where a suicide bomb went off "two
X-MEN v2 #168
The same day as X 167 (17-23). The X-Men defeat the Golgotha at Calvary. At Emma's urging, they fly to Los Angeles to
investigate the trouble there. Polaris, Iceman, and Wolverine battle Boy and his group. They capture Boy and return him to the
Institute, where the Golgothas start to affect the X-Men's behavior. Emma places the Institute under quarantine for "twenty-four
hours" so that the X-Men can sweat the craziness out.
X-MEN v2 #169 (1-6)
The same night as X 168. Emma notes that the Golgothas are actually shells of the actual creature, which is loose in the Institute.
The students are locked in their rooms as the X-Men search for the creature. We see some green vegetation at Xavier's.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #11/2
One school day which is a day before another school day. Peter accompanies his class on a field trip to a museum, where they
encounter a battle between the Thing and the Absorbing Man. Peter is forced to use his agility to save a couple of students and
he frets that Ben has figured out his secret, but he hasn't. That places this story before SM/HT 5-FB. This story is supposed to
occur sometime during "Sept. 5th through 23rd," the dates of the exhibition that Peter's class visits, but this contradicts Peter's
boss, Lynn Nelson, head of the school science department, who tells him he used up his sick days "by the second month of the
school term." Green trees in New York.
SECRET WAR #5/3
One day. I've placed this story before A4 4 (1-15). Maria Hill gets her first presidential briefing as director of SHIELD. The
recording date of "4/15/2007" must be topical; perhaps it's 5/15.
One day, "nine months, three days" before CW:I 1. Hurricane II starts his super-hero career.
Saturday, May 16
X-MEN v2 #169 (7-22)
The day (starting "twelve hours") after X 169 (1-6). The craziness sets the X-Men against one another until they find the
creature in the hangar bay. After the X-Men incinerate the creature, Emma gets a call alerting her that an armada of Golgothas is
heading to earth from space.
X-MEN v2 #170
The same day as X 169 (7-22). This story occurs (perhaps many) "days" before X 171 (13-23) and must occur before GAM4 7
(1-20). Emma refers to the story in X4 1-5. I have this story before A4 1. The X-Men battle and defeat the Golgotha armada in
space and the White House keeps a lid on the mutants' victory. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #11 (11)
One day, "two weeks" after ASMU2 11 (1-10). Spidey subdues Electro, who is wearing his classic costume.
SHE-HULK v4 #4 - FB (21:4)
One day. This flashback must occur before S-H4 3-FB (21-22), M/TU3 11, and FOES 2 (1-9). She-Hulk attends a Green Cross
picnic in Bone, Idaho. The year "2005" must be topical.
NEW AVENGERS #14 - FB (15:3, 15:5)
One day. Apparently in India, Jessica Drew gives Connely some SHIELD intel about a defense initiative called "the God's Eye."
YOUNG AVENGERS SPECIAL #1
One day, "three days" after YA 8 and before YA 9. Jessica is still pregnant here, so this story must occur before PULSE 11 (19-
21), and since she's still working for the Bugle, this story must occur before A4 15. Kat Farrell tries to get Jessica Jones to help
her do a story on the Young Avengers. Jessica talks to Cassie, Teddy, Billy, Kate, and Eli to pave the way. Eli declines to talk to
Kat, citing a "history paper" he needs to finish (so it's during the school year). The other kids do grant the interview with Kat,
and as Jessica and Cage look on, Kang spies on them all. Cassie is "fourteen," so she hasn't yet had her fifteenth birthday, which
according to YA2 , occurs in "June." Green grass and trees and autumn leaves (which may be topical).
One day, "a month" (perhaps more) before A4 13 (1-21) and before A4 1 (1-8). SHIELD kidnaps Kenuicho Harada and
imprisons him in the Raft.
ORDER v2 #6 - FB (8:1-8:2)
One night. Mulholland Black and the Black Dahlias defeat a pimp and leave him for the cops.
Sunday, May 17
NEW X-MEN v2 #23 - FB (1-2)
One day, "eight weeks" before NX 23 (5:1-5:2). Stryker calls up Julia Cabot's name on a database.
NEW X-MEN v2 #23 - FB (3-4)
Perhaps the same day as NX 23-FB (1-2). It may be more than "almost a year" after UX 441 (1-23). On a "Sunday," Stryker
approaches Jay Guthrie in a Westchester church lighting a candle in Julia Cabot's memory. Stryker lures Jay with talk of hope
PUNISHER v7 #18 (21:2-22)
One day, "three days" after PUN7 18 (16-21). It cannot be "two years" before PUN7 37 (1-6). Frank returns to the bar from
PUN7 13, gives the bartender a bottle of vodka he swiped from the bar in Siberia, to give to the old Russian immigrant.
NEW AVENGERS: ILLUMINATI v2 #2
One day, perhaps before A4 7 (1-6) and so perhaps before A4 1 (1-8). This story occurs long enough after S-H3 12 (1-19) for
Reed to have found the Infinity Gauntlet and two more Infinity Gems. Because Reed learned in X4 1 that Xavier was no longer
with the Institute, this story must occur after X4 5 (1-22), and because Xavier is present, it probably occurs before HOM 1 (7-
17). Reed probably does not appear here during the course of FOES. Reed calls together the Illuminati - Iron Man, Xavier, Dr.
Strange, Black Bolt, and Namor (in his blue and gold costume) - to tell them that he's collected three Infinity Gems and the
Infinity Gauntlet and that they must help him collect the remaining gems and secure them. Xavier, Namor, and Strange go to the
Xavier Institute, where they use Cerebro to enter "the collective consciousness" and fetch the Mind Gem. At the same time,
Reed, Stark, and Black Bolt open a rift in reality at the Baxter Building to fetch the Reality Gem. This risky, secret effort attracts
the passing attention of the Thing and Human Torch. When Reed adds the two new gems to the gauntlet, the last gem, the Time
Gem, appears. The Watcher appears and tells Reed how disappointed he is in him. Reed removes the glove after failing to will it
to cease to exist. When the Watcher says that no one being should have it, Reed divides the gems among the Illuminati and tells
each of them to hide the gems, tell no one of their location, and never use them. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
One day, probably after YA 6 (16-17). Ty Stone is bankrolling a TV series about Hercules and the cameraman is filming
Hercules at a bar, where the Avenger sees a news broadcast that shows Captain America unveiling a statue and a plan to turn the
site of Avengers Mansion into a park (I have Memorial Day as the occasion for this event). Hercules resolves to re-form the
Avengers, then he is attacked by the man-bull Archelous and is taken to his ancient foe Eurysthenes. We see people wearing
coats in Manhattan.
The same day as HERC 1. Eurysthenes offers to restore Hercules' glory by assigning him twelve labors for reality TV. Hercules
accepts, the deal is publicly announced, and Zeus (dressed as a businessman) reacts. It may take a little time to set up the
Monday, May 18
One day, perhaps after X:KPSF 5. According to A4 11, the Silver Samurai is brought to the Raft the "very day" of the big
breakout for "international crimes involving his cousin Sunfire."
One day, after SECWAR 6. It is a day the X-Men are "teaching class." Logan must be back at Xavier's after PULSE 9 (1-20)
and after having been away from the Institute for months for the Enemy of the State and Agent of SHIELD story arcs; I have him
here after X 170. Earlier in the day of A4 1 (1-8) - technically two days before A4 5 although referred to as "yesterday" by
Logan in A4 5 - Scorcher calls the Xavier Institute to report that some Savage Land Mutates offered him money to break Sauron
out of the Raft.
NEW AVENGERS #1 (1-8:1)
One stormy night, "six months" (inclusive) after A:FINALE (rather than A 503). It must be earlier than the "month" before A4
11-FB (3-4), and must be more than just "a couple of weeks" before A4 15-FB. This segment occurs after W3 31, YA 6 (16-17),
and ASMU2 9 and must occur after XFOR2 6, RUN2 1, and SSO 1 (1-7). This segment may occur after NA:I2 2 and after the defeat of the Brothers Grimm by Armory in A:TI@ 1/2-FB (4:2). It must be more than "weeks" before CW 1 (1-7), as noted in A4 30-FB. Matt Murdock, Foggy Nelson, and Luke Cage arrive at the maximum-security prison, the Raft, to see the Sentry and are met by Jessica Drew.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (7/8:1-7/8:2)
The same night as A4 1 (1-8). It is "two years" after SM:BO 1-FB. The lights go out at the Raft.
NEW AVENGERS #1 (8:2-9)
The same night as SM:BO 1 (7/8:1-7/8:2). The Raft's generators power down and lights go out in New York City.
NEW AVENGERS #1 (10-11) ~ SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (7/8:3)
The same night as A4 1 (8-9). A blast rocks the Raft.
NEW AVENGERS #1 (12-22)
The same night as A4 1 (10-11). Electro attacks, knocking out the prison's power and freeing a horde of villains. One of the
villains is Crossbones, who may be here after CA5 17. The attack attracts the attention of Captain America and Spider-Man who
arrive at the Raft. The water in New York Harbor is "ice cold."
NEW AVENGERS #2 (1-4)
The same rainy night as A4 1 (12-22). Electro helps Sauron to escape. Then, as Count Nefaria escapes, he knocks Spidey into a
horde of freed villains, one of whom snaps Spidey's arm.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (7/8:4)
The same night as A4 2 (1-4). The horde of villains rush Spidey.
NEW AVENGERS #2 (5-18)
The same night as SM:BO 1 (1/2:4). It is generally "six months" and specifically "six months, two weeks, three days, five
hours" before TOXIN 3 (1-11). Matt, Foggy, Jessica, and Cage try to get the Sentry, an inmate at the Raft, to help as another
horde of villains attacks them. As Cap arrives to assist Spidey, Sentry saves Foggy from Carnage by flying him into space and
Jessica saves Foggy from Hydro-Man.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (9)
The same night as A4 2 (5-18). Crossfire, Mr. Fear, and Corruptor slip away from the melee as Cap and Spidey battle on.
NEW AVENGERS #2 (19/20:1-19/20:3)
The same night as SM:BO 1 (9). Matt Murdock and Jessica Drew join Cap and Spidey in the free-for-all.
NEW AVENGERS #2 (19/20:4) ~ SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (10:1)
The same night as A4 2 (19/20:1-19/20:3). Ironclad throws Cap into the air.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (10:2-10:3)
The same night as NA 2 (19/20:4). Crossfire, Mr. Fear, and Corruptor pass up the chance to nail the U-Foes in order to escape
with Controller and Mandrill.
NEW AVENGERS #2 (19/20:5-22)
The same night as SM:BO 1 (10:2-10:3). Iron Man saves Cap and Purple Man tries to take possession of Cage. Killgrave's
presence here is confounding - he was active in TB2 7, which must occur before this point because of the crossover with Enemy
of the State a "few days" earlier, and he's active in TB2 9-10, which must occur after this point because of the crossover with
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (11)
The same night as SM:BO 1 (10:2-10:3). It is "three weeks" before SM:B 1 (12-23). Crossfire, Mr. Fear, Corruptor,
Controller, and Mandrill escape the Raft in an underwater craft and set out for revenge against the Guardsman who shafted them
at the Vault.
NEW AVENGERS #3 - FB
The same night as SM:BO 1 (11). This flashback occurs shortly before FOES 2 (1-9), before NC3 7, and a day or two before
NW3 1-FB. Cage pummels Purple Man (although this may be a fake-out by Killgrave) and the heroes defeat 45 villains while 42
escape the Raft.
The same night as A4 3-FB. According to A4 11, the Silver Samurai, freed from the Raft (where he was imprisoned by his
kidnapers from a corrupt SHIELD), gets on a private plane to Japan.
One night. This story must occur after IM:H 6. The Livewires raid another covert, quasi-governmental R&D program in which
"pyromecha" are created from the original, android, Human Torch's thermogenic cells. Project Livewire's newest member, Stem
Cell, is hastily booted up to replace a fallen Livewire. At first unaware that she's a robotic "mecha" and not a human adolescent,
the stunned, bemused Stem Cell finds herself swept up in the mayhem. Stem Cell vomits up a functional version of the
component from the Humvee, and Hollowpoint Ninja plugs it into his gun.
LIVEWIRES #2 - FB (4:2)
The same night as LW 1. Hollowpoint uses his gun to cause a pyromecha to overheat, and Gothic Lolita, Stem Cell, and he flee
from the ensuing fireball.
LIVEWIRES #2 (2-6)
The same night as LW 2-FB (4:2). The Livewires destroy their target and escape. They destroy the body of their fallen
teammate. Green grass and leafy trees.
Tuesday, May 19
LIVEWIRES #2 (7-22)
The day after LW 2 (2-6). The Livewires leave intimidating messages at the homes of former AIM scientists. That night, Gothic
Lolita sabotages a plane delivering the power source for a Sentinel and ditches it at sea. Cornfed shows Stem Cell that Nannites
and LMDs are the Livewires' technological ancestors. It is a school day. Green grass and trees and light clothing.
NEW AVENGERS #3
The day after A4 3-FB. It is a school day. Jessica Jones is still pregnant, but now visibly so. Steve Rogers tries to form a new Avengers with the heroes who fought at the Raft. Daredevil refuses, but Iron Man, Cage, Spider-Man, and Spider-Woman (who is fired from SHIELD and appears to be spying for someone) meet at Stark Tower and Jarvis is called back into service. We see coats and jackets worn in New York.
NEW AVENGERS #4 (1-15)
The same night as A4 3. Nick Fury is no longer SHIELD director, so this segment must occur after SECWAR 5; I've placed this
segment after Hill's first presidential briefing in SECWAR 5/3. SHIELD has the Sentry in custody and defeated Raft prisoners
are in lockdown at Ryker's. Cap informs acting SHIELD director Maria Hill that he's re-forming the Avengers. The group
discover through surveillance footage that Electro was behind the Raft prison break. They find him in Boston (where he's been
for at least "three weeks") and their threats make the villain pass out. Spider-Woman goes to Ryker's and gets the villains there
to tell her that Karl Lykos was the one Electro broke out. We see green trees and al fresco dining in Boston.
Wednesday, May 20
NEW AVENGERS #4 (16-22)
The morning after A4 4 (1-15). The Avengers arrive in the Savage Land to search for Sauron. Their quinjet is destroyed and
they encounter Wolverine.
NEW AVENGERS #5
The same day as A4 4 (16-22). Logan explains his presence in the Savage Land, referring to the Raft breakout as having
occurred "yesterday," but technically it may be two days before. The team is attacked and taken captive by the Savage Land
Mutates. Vertigo is now blue and red. After Lykos explains that he was locked in the Raft after refusing to work for SHIELD
against fellow mutants, Tony activates his armor, which frees the heroes. The Avengers battle the Mutates and when Lykos turns
into Sauron, he's shot in the head by Yelena Belova, who's leading a shadow SHIELD battalion.
NEW AVENGERS #6
The same day as A4 5. This story occurs before TOXIN 1, WX:DOFN 1 (7-12), SM:BO 1 (12-23), and NA@ 1 (1), must occur
before ASM 515 (16-17), ASTONX3 11, ASMU2 13, ASMU2 13/2 (1-6), and CA5 16 (5-22), and probably before PPTSS2 23
(2). It must be more than "a couple'a months" before W3 42 (20-22). Spidey says he hasn't slept "in three days." The Avengers
battle the SHIELD battalion and, when threatened by Spider-Woman to divulge her bosses, Belova notes that she works for the
same people as Jessica does. Sauron rises and fries Belova before being subdued by the Avengers. The burned Belova gets
away. The Avengers discover an illegal vibranium mining operation run by a covert faction of SHIELD in which Savage Land
denizens are enslaved to acquire material for banned weapons. Just as the heroes raid the operation, the SHIELD Helicarrier
(apparently a backup for the one destroyed in W3 27 but not necessarily the "v2.0" noted as being "sixteen weeks" from
completion in W3 31) arrives and nukes the entire operation; the Avengers are saved by Iron Man's repulsor shield. The
Avengers argue about the slaughter with SHIELD commander Hill, who mentions the appreciation of the director of Weapon X
for getting Sauron back in custody. The team regroups and Iron Man tells his team that 14 of the Raft escapees are supposed to
be dead, leading him to the conclusion that someone is stockpiling super-villains in addition to weapons. Iron Man convinces
Cap to let him ask Logan to join the team. Wrapped in bandages, Belova awakens in a hospital room, where her employer offers
her an opportunity for revenge.
NEW AVENGERS #8 - FB
The same day as A4 6. It is "one week" before A4 8 and "soon" before GSA 1/5. This flashback probably occurs before GAM4 1. Tony talks Logan into joining the Avengers. Reference is made to the "Enemy of the State" storyline in W2 20-25, and so this story arc must occur after W3 31.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #14 (1-10)
One school day at the end of the school year. Logan appears here back to normal, so this segment probably occurs after W3 31
and PULSE 9 (1-20). With no mentor, the Paragons and Alpha Squadron are still having difficulty adjusting to the loss of Rahne
and Northstar. Julian gloats over the Hellions' winning the field day competition. Much to Nori's chagrin, David asks Laurie to
the Institute's year-end dance, for which the X-Men are decorating. Josh tells Nori about David's dream of a future in which she
and David are married. Fred Dukes sees a shrink. Green trees in Washington, DC.
One day, a day or two after A4 3-FB. It is "two months" before NW3 1-FB (1-23). Raft escapees (mistakenly identified as
"Vault" escapees) Tiger Shark and Armadillo rough up a pizza delivery boy, whose boss calls the cops and tries to call the
Avengers (apparently not knowing or remembering that they disbanded). A cop responds and gets his car smashed, so he calls
According to A4 7, this scene occurs the same night as A4 6. The Crusader, a Raft escapee, attacks Dr. Strange. Strange
banishes him with a spell.
LIVEWIRES #3 (1-20:5)
Probably the rainy night of the day after LW 2 (7-22). It is "six days" before LW 3 (20-22). Cornfed, Social Butterfly, and
Hollowpoint Ninja infiltrate another covert quasi-governmental program and get a lead to their target, the "white whale." In the
Livewires' rented safehouse, Gothic Lolita reviews the history of Project: Livewire for Stem Cell. When their three teammates
return, they prepare for their "white whale" mission.
Thursday, May 21
One day, the "week" before M/TU3 9. The new Stilt-Man defeats Superpro.
RUNAWAYS v2 #7
One day, "a whole month" after RUN2 6. It is "a few years" after RUN2 6-FB (5:3). The Runaways fight Swarm and defeat
him, leaving the scene before Excelsior comes (off-panel). They then split into groups of two and go shopping. One hour later,
as they return, Karolina tries to kiss Nico, but she's not interested. Suddenly, a spaceship lands near them and Xavin comes out
from it. Nico is hurt by the ricochets of Karolina's defense, and Xavin declares he's Karolina's fiancé, as per their parents'
arrangement. Green grass and trees in Los Angeles.
RUNAWAYS v2 #8
The same night as RUN2 7. It is at least "a month" before RUN2 9. Xavin explains he's a Super-Skrull in training from Tarnax
VII. The other Runaways arrive and attack him; it takes the Leapfrog landing on him to knock him out. They leave, but Xavin
pursues them and forces them to listen to him. Xavin's plan is to marry Karolina so that they can unite the peoples of Tarnax VII
and Majesdane and stop their stupid war. Karolina accepts (mainly to atone for her parents' actions) when Xavin changes gender.
They both leave Earth.
The night of the day after LW 3 (1-20). The Livewires sneak into a tanker of nanofluid that AIM is delivering to the "white
whale," which is housed in the rebuilt frame of a wrecked SHIELD Helicarrier. Once inside the structure, the Livewires emerge
and attack the mechas there. The team disperses, and as Cornfed covers them, he is destroyed by the mechas, who turn out to be
The same night as LW 4. Gothic Lolita and Social Butterfly are destroyed in their raid. Hollowpoint Ninja then stuffs Stem Cell
in a fuel pipe and tells her to shut down her commlink transmission as he goes off to continue sniping until his ammo and luck
run out. LIVEWIRES #6 (1-18:2)
The same night as LW 5. It is "six months" since LW 6-FB (21-22). Stem Cell hacks herself, blasting off her inhibitor module,
which allows her to customize her mental state. The Fury LMDs have Ninja strung up on spikes, alive but missing both legs and
his right arm, and reveal that they were created from data gathered in the botched Nick Fury assassination. Stem Cell arrives and
creates a bunch of pyromecha that fight the LMDs. Stem Cell rescues Hollowpoint Ninja and they escape as the Helicarrier
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #1 (12-23)
One night. It may be three days, not "three weeks," after SM:BO 1 (11), especially given the state of Peter's arm here, which
doesn't seem to be a problem in other appearances. In their apartment, M.J. tends to Peter, whose left forearm is still tender from
the Raft battle and is supposed to "take six weeks to heal;" there's no mention of the injury to the right arm sustained in M/TU3
13. This story must occur before A4 7 (1-6), since Peter notes that "this whole Avengers situation is still...kinda fluid...we're not
officially a team." Spidey goes out on patrol for Raft escapees and gets caught in the middle of a violent grudge match between
the U-Foes and Mr. Fear and the Controller. Green trees and sweatshirts and jackets in New York.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #2 (1-18)
The same night as SM:BO 1 (12-23). Spidey subdues Mr. Fear, who blabs about the feud between his group and the U-Foes.
The U-Foes and the Controller escape and Cap and Iron Man arrive after "the third skirmish in as many weeks" ends. When
Controller reports back to his comrades, they decide to move from their Coney Island hideout. Cap and Spidey pick up more
clues at the Raft, then Spidey calls on Black Cat to ask Owl for intel.
Friday, May 22
LIVEWIRES #6 (18:3-23)
The morning after LW 6 (1-18). Stem Cell salvages stuff from the Helicarrier debris, among which are the remains of her
teammates. Although only the sleeping Ninja is certainly fixable, she's hoping she can fix the others. She heads for Project:
Livewires' home base, where she finds only a crater in the desert. She demands Ninja wake up and tell her what happened.
RUNAWAYS SAGA - FB (27-29)
One day, shortly after RUN2 8. Molly writes in her diary about her recent adventures with the Runaways.
SECRET WAR #5/2
One day, a "couple of weeks" after SECWAR 5. At a SHIELD medical center in Atlanta, Sitwell interrogates the hospitalized
Scorcher, who asks to work underground for SHIELD. The recording date of "6/22/06" must be topical.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #2 (19-20)
The evening of the day after SM:BO 2 (1-18). Owl gives Spidey a lead on Rozalyn Backus, the Raft administrator with whom
Crossfire had a dispute.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #3 - FB (10:2)
The same night as SM:BO 2 (19-20). Spidey checks out the penthouse of "Angela Marcy," an alias of Backus, only to find it
Saturday, May 23
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #2 (21-22)
The morning after SM:BO 3-FB (10:2). After checking tax records "overnight," Spidey finds Backus, a tenement super.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #3
The same day as SM:BO 2 (21-22). At "7:46 A.M.," the U-Foes infiltrate an investment firm and enlist the services of Courtland
Whitehead, a former accountant of Vector's, to find Backus, who once cleaned out Vector's hidden financial accounts. Spidey
talks to Backus, who relates her story. Whitehead traces Backus and as the he sends the U-Foes on a wild-goose chase to deal
with her, Crossfire and his associates show up. Green trees and short sleeves in New York.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #4
The same day as SM:BO 3. It is a school day. Crossfire forces Whitehead to give him Roz's address, then Crossfire leaves
Whitehead and his employees to the mercy of the Corruptor. The U-Foes show up and subdue Corruptor. They confront
Whitehead about the false address he gave them. Roz tells Spidey her back story, including her relationship with Crossfire.
Crossfire and Controller burst into Roz's apartment at Haven House and subdue Spidey. Green trees in New York.
SPIDER-MAN: BREAKOUT #5
The same day as SM:BO 4. This story occurs before NW3 6-FB (1:1-1:3). This story must occur before A4 7 (1-6), given
Spidey's comment in SM:B 1 that the New Avengers are fluid and unofficial. Because Peter and M.J. are shown in their
apartment in SM:B 1 (12-23), this story must occur before ASM 515 (19-22). The U-Foes burst into Haven House and battle
Crossfire, Controller, and Mandrill over a power-draining chamber that Roz says she destroyed. A cell phone call to Spidey
alerts Captain America and Iron Man, who capture Crossfire, Controller, and Mandrill. The U-Foes get away and Haven House
is destroyed. Roz is arrested and Spidey comes to appreciate being part of a team. After this story, the U-Foes probably battle
the New Thunderbolts BTS between TB2 12 (19-22) and TB2 13. Green trees in New York.
DISTRICT X #14 - FB (20-21)
One day, "one month" before DX 14. Billy Bates goes to the Café des Artistes and meets a waitress on whom he develops a
One day. The New Avengers are officially formed.
Sunday, May 24
CABLE & DEADPOOL #14 (21-22)
One day, "four days" after C&DP 14 (1-20). Deadpool shows up in Moscow and shakes down one the Black Box's "think
links." Wade wants Black Box to figure out a way to kill him.
NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #1 (1:1-1:3, 2:1, 2:3, 3:1, 3:3-3:6)
One day, shortly after NX 14 (1-10). Emma tells Julian, "the X-Men have been called away on important business. I'm afraid I
won't be at the prize-giving tomorrow." She gives Hellion a lecture about his behavior and urges him to "use this summer" to
reflect on what she says. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #14 (11-20)
The same day as NXH 1 (3:3-3:6). The Institute holds its year-end dance. Julian shows up with the Stepford Cuckoos but asks
Sofia to spend the summer with him. When Laurie sees Josh dancing with Amara, she decides to make him jealous by making
David kiss her with her pheromone power. David and Sofia get ticked off and Laurie's chaperoning mother is heartbroken.
NEW AVENGERS #7 (1-6)
One day. This segment occurs "six months" after GSSW 1. It must occur after SM:B 5 and may occur after NA:I2 2.
Newspapers announce the reformation of the Avengers the day after Stark "got the Avengers back together" officially - but
details such as the group's lineup and headquarters are not yet made known to the public at large; that comes in A4 15. Iron Man
calls a meeting of the Illuminati - Dr. Strange, Reed Richards, Charles Xavier, Black Bolt, and Namor (in his blue and gold
costume) - to discuss the Sentry. They also discuss the formation of the New Avengers.
NEW AVENGERS #9 - FB
The same day as A4 7. It is "months" after DD2 56-FB (10-17). Iron Man and company learn that there is a mystery
surrounding the Sentry's existence.
HERCULES #3 (1-7)
One day. For his first labor, Hercules captures Zabu in the Savage Land, much to the dismay of Ka-Zar and Shanna.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #2 - FB (1:3)
One summer (or summer-like) day. A zoo in Salina, Kansas is taken over and the doors are shut.
Monday, May 25: Memorial Day
GIANT-SIZE AVENGERS v2 #1/5
One "Memorial Day" morning. This story occurs "soon after" A4 8-FB and "two weeks" before GSA2 1/4. This story happens
to land on the calendar between pages 6 and 7 of A4 7, which seems like a good spot. At Stark Tower, Spidey plays the latest of
a series of pranks on Logan and Cap and Iron Man decide to talk to him about his responsibility as an Avenger. They take him to
the destroyed Avengers Mansion and enlist the aid of Dr. Strange to have him experience episodes of Avengers history. Green
grass and trees in New York.
One day, sometime after WX2 28. Under the command of Malcolm Colcord, Madison Jeffries' Box Sentinels battle the U-Men.
WEAPON X: DAYS OF FUTURE NOW #1 (7-12)
The same day as WX:DOFN 1-FB (12:1). This segment must occur after A4 6. It is "three weeks" before the divergent timeline
setting of WX:DOFN 1 (13-24). Colcord, Jeffries, and the Box Sentinels stand victorious over the slaughtered U-Men. They are
joined by Sauron, whose "jailbreak" (apparently the Raft breakout in A4 1-3) turned him from an enemy to an ally.
NEW AVENGERS #7 (7-22)
The day after A4 9-FB. The Wrecker reclaims his crowbar from the home of a Long Island super-villain memorabilia collector.
Spidey, Logan, Cage, and Spider-Woman show up and fight him. Cap and Iron Man fly to Nevada, where Director Hill and
SHIELD have found the Sentry in a cave. Sentry claims that he killed his wife and that the Void is coming, but Cap and Iron
Man show him his living wife and introduce him to Paul Jenkins, the creator of the Sentry comic book character. Green grass
and trees and sunbathing weather on Long Island.
NEW AVENGERS #8 (1-5)
The same day as A4 7 (7-22). It is "one week" after A4 8-FB. In the cave (which has somehow moved from Nevada to Arizona),
Iron Man, Cap, SHIELD, Jenkins, and Lindy Reynolds try to talk to the Sentry.
NEW AVENGERS #8 (9-18)
The same day as A4 8 (1-5). It must be more than just "a few months" before A4 36 (20:5-20:7). The Sentry freaks and takes off for his home in Hartford. The rest of the Avengers defeat the Wrecker and in the process, Spider-Woman reveals her pheromone power. Iron Man then calls them to meet up in Hartford.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #14 (21-23)
The day after NX 14 (11-20). Havok's team is "away." The X-Men respond to a request by the Avengers to meet in New York
(perhaps to meet up with some Avengers before heading to Hartford to confront the Sentry). Scott and Emma put Dani in charge
of today's prize-giving ceremony. When the Blob sees the X-Men arrive in New York, he decides to head to the unguarded
Institute. Green trees in New York.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #15 (1-5)
The same day as NX 14 (21-23). Just before the prize-giving ceremony, Dani talks to Amara about joining the faculty and the
Blob arrives in Salem Center. Shan visits Rahne in New York City, where she's investigating a kidnaping case with Madrox, and
tries to convince her to return to the Institute. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #15 (6:1) ~ NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #1 (1:4)
The same day as NX 15 (1-5). Dani begins her introduction at the prize-giving ceremony. Green grass and trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #15 (6:2)
The same day as NX 15 (6:1). Dani continues her introduction.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #15 (6:3) ~ NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #1 (1:5)
The same day as NX 15 (6:2). Dani continues her introduction.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #15 (6:4-6:5)
The same day as NX 15 (6:3). Julian stands up as Dani announces the field day winners. Green trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #1 (2:2)
The same day as NX 15 (6:4-6:5). Dani identifies the members of the Hellions as they claim their prize.
NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #1 (3:2)
The same day as NX:H 1 (2:2). Julian makes an obnoxious acceptance speech. Green trees at Westchester.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X #15 (7-23)
The same day as NX:H 1 (3:2). This segment occurs before NX:AXY 1 (1-18). David notes that next year will be his senior
year. As the prize-giving ceremony continues, the Blob attacks, injuring Laurie's mother. Dani, Amara, Agent Pierce, the New
Mutants, the Hellions, and the Stepford Cuckoos battle and defeat the Blob, who is taken away by SHIELD. Amara agrees to
join the faculty, but in New York, Rahne declines Shan's offer to return. Laurie and her mother reconcile and Sofia decides to
spend the summer with them rather than go with Julian to his parents' place "for a few weeks." Noriko tells David off. Green
grass and trees at Westchester and New York City.
NEW AVENGERS #8 (19-21)
The same day as A4 8 (9-18) and perhaps the same day as NX 14 (21-23). The New Avengers, SHIELD (still run by Director
Hill), the FF, Namor (in blue and gold costume), the Astonishing X-Men, Dr. Strange, and the Inhumans confront Bob Reynolds.
Reynolds tells the group that the Void has arrived. Green grass and trees on Long Island and in Connecticut.
NEW AVENGERS #9
The same day as A4 8. As the gathered heroes battle the Void, Emma enters Bob Reynolds' mind and discovers a suppressed
memory of Mastermind getting him to forget the Sentry and to use his power to make everyone forget.
NEW AVENGERS #10
The same day as A4 9. This story must occur before DEF3 1 (1-12), SENTRY2 1 (1-13), AAF2 13, FOUR 21 (1-7), HOM 1 (7-
17), and YA 9, and likely before HERC 3 (13) and M/N:I 4. Emma uses a shared memory from Lindy to get through to Bob and
make him remember the psychic traps Mastermind set for him. Then Emma gives him back his memories, shared only by Lindy
and Reed, and Bob transforms into Sentry. Although the rest of the world still has no memory of Sentry, the Avengers accept
him into their ranks to help him take advantage of this second chance at a hero's career, and to keep an eye on him. The
Avengers return to Stark Tower, only to discover that it revealed as the Sentry's Watchtower, which had been hidden during
Bob's craziness. Iron Man debriefs Strange, Reed, Black Bolt, and Namor. Reed asks Tony about recent shadiness with
SHIELD, but Tony refuses to discuss it.
HERCULES #3 (8-12)
One day. For his second labor, Hercules plows through some Hydra goons and witnesses a cyborg Hydra creature explode.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #2 - FB (1:4)
One day. A Super Ape posing as zoo owner John Burrows gives a bizarre recorded interview about the wants of the zoo animals.
GAMBIT v4 #1
One day. This story occurs after X 165 (9-24) and may occur after A4 8-FB, given Remy's knowledge of a Stark-funded
Avengers in GAM4 2 (1-16). In Baton Rogue, Gambit destroys a Sentinel that two guys from a garage rebuilt with monster truck
parts. He then barters his silence about the embarrassing incident for their motorcycle and finishes his trip to New Orleans in
style. Upon arrival, he meets his old friend Dan Down, a psychic who gets messages through playing cards. Dan warns him that
the cards have been sending bad signals all week, but Gambit dismisses him and heads out on his "date," a meeting with Lili
Penrose, who wants to hire him to steal a deck of cards. Meanwhile, club owner Orlean Cooper wants to hire Gambit to steal the
cards as well and fires the thief he had previously hired, "Fast Jack" Jessup. Jack vows that he'll steal the cards anyway and will
kill Gambit if he gets in the way. Shorts, short sleeves, and light long-sleeved shirts in New Orleans. Full moon.
Tuesday, May 26
GAMBIT v4 #2 - FB
The "morning" after GAM4 1. Remy seeks information from a fortune teller friend, Madame Camille, about the Penrose estate
so he can break in and steal the deck of cards Lili Penrose hired him to take. Full moon.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #13
One day. Spidey's reference to "the next Avengers barbecue" places this story after A4 6. Spidey encounters the Rhino at a café.
Because Spidey and the police are not anxious to arrest Rhino, I presume that he has been released from Ryker's after M/KSM
10 (1-10) and has not yet committed another crime, as he appears to do in FNSM 5-FB (14) and M/TU3 7 (3-22).
HERCULES #3 (13)
One day. For his third labor, Hercules captures Lockjaw on the moon, much to the dismay of the Inhumans. Lockjaw remains in
lock-up until HERC 5, so his appearance in A4 8 cannot occur between now and then; I have placed this segment after A4 10.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #3 - FB (5:3-6:5)
One day. Night Thrasher recruits Speedball for the new incarnation of the New Warriors. Speedball's mom thought he was
going back to school.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #13/2 (1-6)
One day. Spidey (who has organic web-shooters) mentions "missions with the Avengers," placing this segment after A4 6 (2-20). Spidey fights Vulture, who sneezes on Spidey and gets away. Peter catches a bug and M.J. tries to convince him to get some rest and call in sick "at work tomorrow."
NEW WARRIORS v3 #2 - FB (1:5-1:6)
One day. As captured on film, animals from the Salina zoo raid a convenience store. The animal control officer is powerless to
GAMBIT v4 #2 (1-16)
The same evening as ("five hours" after) GAM4 2-FB. Remy refers to Stark International as "the tech company that bankrolls
the Avengers" - present tense; he may have learned about Stark's bankrolling of a new Avengers team from Logan, or the
formation of the team may be public knowledge as noted in A4 7 (1-6). Gambit steals a disc from a Stark International ship,
where monitors show Punisher (skulking around) and Wolverine (reading a magazine) in what are probably live feeds. Rogue is
also seen in what may be a combination of live feed and prerecorded clips. Gambit eludes Stark's security and makes his way
back to New Orleans, where he picks up the information on Morgan Penrose and begins to plan the heist with Dan Down. Short
sleeves and light long-sleeved shirts in New Orleans. Full moon.
Wednesday, May 27
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #13/2 (7-11)
The day after ASMU2 13/2 (1-6). Because Peter and M.J. are living in their apartment, not in Stark Tower, this issue of ASMU2
(or at least this story) must occur out of order with other issues; this segment must occur before ASM 515 (19-22), and thus
probably before PPTSS2 23 (1). M.J. tries to prevent the sick Peter from going out and fighting crime and eventually calls in
Aunt May to lay down the law. The Human Torch captures the Vulture BTS and a radio report announces that "the Trapster's on
the lam," probably placing this segment before FOES 1. Peter starts feeling better, but M.J. comes down with the bug.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #3 - FB (8:2-9)
One day. Night Thrasher recruits Nova, which places this flashback shortly before M/TU3 11.
SENTINEL SQUAD O*N*E #5 (3-17)
One day, "three weeks" after SSO 5 (1-2) and "one month" before SSO 5 (18-19). Lazer and Val argue over the appointment of
Briggs to leadership of the Sentinel Squad. Rhodey sends the Squad on a mission to save a mutant village in Ecuador from
attack by a mutated horde of Sentinels originally created by Cassandra Nova. After the Squad defeats the predators, Lexington
fools Briggs into going on a wild goose chase while the team fakes the death of Meld, who stays behind to live in the mutant
HERCULES #3 (14)
One day. For his fourth labor, Hercules trashes Dragon Man.
HERCULES #3 (15)
One day. For his fifth labor, Hercules drives Attuma's hordes from Atlantis...and to Florida.
GAMBIT v4 #2 (17-22)
The day after GAM4 2 (1-16). Jack Jessup scouts Morgan's estate, planning a heist of his own. That night, Dan takes Gambit
gambling, and Dan explains that the more he "sacrifices" to his playing cards - the bigger a pot he folds on - the stronger the
vision he receives. He and Gambit both fold on a large pot, and a vision of a demon flashes before them. Dan realizes that
they're not stealing playing cards, they're stealing tarot cards. Meanwhile, Orlean Cooper finalizes a deal with a familiar-looking
GAMBIT v4 #3 (1-19:6)
The same night as GAM4 2 (17-22). Morgan Penrose hosts a dinner party for New Orleans' top occultists (including Brother
Voodoo) and explains the origins of the Inficio Aquilus, possibly the world's first tarot deck, created seven hundred years ago by
monks who studied madmen. The deck contains four extra cards, with images so horrific that looking directly at them will burn
out the viewer's eyes. Gambit breaks into Morgan's estate during the party, but as he's disabling the security cameras, he's
interrupted by Lili, who seduces him into a quickie in the security office. A few minutes later he emerges, just as someone
reactivates the security cameras. Short-sleeves and light long-sleeved shirts in New Orleans. Full moon.
GAMBIT v4 #4 - FB (1:1)
The same night as GAM4 3 (1-19). Gambit is caught on tape approaching the glass case.
GAMBIT v4 #3 (19:7)
The same night as GAM4 4-FB (1:1). Gambit picks the lock.
GAMBIT v4 #4 - FB (1:3)
The same night as GAM4 3 (19:7). Gambit holds the cards in his hand.
GAMBIT v4 #3 (20-22)
The same night as GAM4 4-FB (1:3). Gambit meets up with Dan outside the estate, only to be ambushed from behind by Jack
Jessup, who electrocutes him and steals the cards himself.
Thursday, May 28
NEW WARRIORS v3 #3 - FB (11:3-13)
One day. Night Thrasher hires a deep ocean sub to take him to Atlantis and recruits Namorita, who joins because she is bored.
LIVEWIRES #3 (20:6-22)
One day, "six days" after LW 3 (1-20). A secret R&D program test-runs a Sentinel prototype and it malfunctions, thanks to the
Livewires' "cybotage" in LW 3 (1-20).
HERCULES #3 (16-18)
One day. For his sixth labor, Hercules stands up to the Red Skull's "dust of death" (the Red Skull doesn't actually appear).
Jimmy the cameraman inspires Hercules.
HERCULES #3 (19-23)
One day. For his seventh labor, Hercules trashes the Abomination before their scheduled match at Madison Square Garden. Not
pleased with the way things are going, Hera shows up and gives Eurytheus a new list of final tasks for Hercules to perform.
FRIENDLY NEIGHBORHOOD SPIDER-MAN #5 - FB (14)
One day. Spidey (in his classic costume) battles the Rhino (apparently free from Ryker's after ASMU2 13) in a coffeehouse
where Vanna is.
GAMBIT v4 #4
The day after GAM4 3 (20-22). A furious Morgan Penrose shows Orlean Cooper the security footage of Gambit stealing the
cards. Cooper introduces him to Alphonse, his right-hand man and a top-ranking member of the Assassins Guild, who has
already spread the word to every hired goon in New Orleans. Gambit is to be killed. Meanwhile, Gambit plays cards with Dan
in the middle of a pile of defeated super-villains. Dan gets a flash from the cards that it was Jack Jessup who ambushed them
both "last night," and Gambit begins to plan a way to get the tarot deck back. Jessup is trying to reach Cooper to sell him the
cards, but Cooper isn't picking up his phone. In his office, he's joined by Lili, with whom he's working. Gambit, posing as a
hot dog vendor, lifts the cards from Jessup's bag, but as he and Dan walk away, they are ambushed by Alphonse and one of his
thugs. Gambit tries to charge the tarot cards and throw them at Alphonse, but they won't hold a kinetic charge - they're
indestructible. Alphonse and the thug begin to beat Gambit, and Dan flees. Dan goes to Gambit's apartment, where he asks the
cards for help. They spell out a phone number, but as he dials it, Jack Jessup kicks the door in looking for his cards. Jessup
strangles Dan with the phone cord as, on the other end of the line, a puzzled Wolverine listens. "The O.C." is on TV, so it may
be a Thursday.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #7 (3-22)
Perhaps the same day as FNSM 5-FB (14). It is a day that Peter has off from teaching. Ringmaster obtains a ring once
commissioned by the Mandarin and made from a fragment of the Cosmic Cube. After a day spent fighting the Rhino -
apparently free from Ryker's and having committed a crime sometime after ASMU2 13 - I posit that it's the crime shown in
FNSM 5-FB (14) - Peter burns dinner and has to go for take-out as Spidey. While out, he helps Moon Knight defeat the
Constrictor, then the two heroes respond to a bank robbery and find Ringmaster testing out his reality-warping ring. With it,
Tiboldt changes Spidey's webbing to an explosive substance that detonates. Green trees in New York. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #8
The same night as M/TU3 7 (3-22). Titannus leaves his sanctuary and is confronted by Sunfire and the Japanese army. Punisher
and Blade meet on a rooftop above an arms deal between some hoods and a gang of vampires. Spidey's explosion leaves the
vampires suspicious and they kill the hoods. Blade jumps in to fight the vampires. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #9
The same night as M/TU3 8. This story probably occurs before ASMU2 12 (1-10) and perhaps after AAF2 15/4. It is "weeks"
after the new Stilt-Man started his career and the "week" after he defeated Superpro. Titannus defeats Sunfire and destroys
Tokyo. Daredevil and Luke Cage battle the new Stilt-Man while Sleepwalker tries to stop Black Cat from committing a burglary.
Spidey's explosion catches their attention. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #10
The same night as M/TU3 9. This story must occur before ROGUE3 7 (1-12). Because Peter and M.J. are in their apartment in
M/TU3 7, this story must occur before ASM 515 (19-22) and probably before PPTSS2 23 (2). This story must occur before M/TU 2-FB, but it cannot occur "two years" before MK5 3 (17-23). Cap and Logan (who Cap calls an Avenger) exchange data discs about the current status of villains; the info Cap shares includes "some updates on the Sentry" - this probably places this story after A4 10. Spidey's explosion sends them springing into action. Spidey and Moon Knight survive the explosion because Ringmaster made them invulnerable, but then the villain gives them heart attacks. Daredevil intervenes but Ringmaster puts the three heroes in a death-trap. Frenchie intercedes with a blast from Moonie's helicopter and as Ringmaster regroups, Punisher shoots off Ringmaster's ring finger. Cap and Logan arrive. An ambulance picks up Ringmaster and the heroes split up, with Cap taking the ring to SHIELD for safekeeping. Sleepwalker surveys the scene of the battle. Green trees in New York. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #20 (1-5)
The same night as M/TU3 10. This segment cannot occur the day before M/TU3 20 (6-12), since that segment must occur after
M-Day. Cap rushes to take the ring to SHIELD, but a blast causes him to drop and lose it. Cap faces the cause of the blast - a
Modoc Squad. As Cap battles the Squad, he forgets about the ring, which ends up near a Manhattan diner. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #20 (13)
It must be the same night as M/TU3 20 (1-5), not the day after, nor the same day as M/TU3 20 (6-12) as noted in the narration
("at that very moment"). After his battle with the Modoc Squad, Cap reports to the SHIELD Helicarrier, where he is patched up.
Maria Hill hopes the ring doesn't fall into the wrong hands.
Friday, May 29
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #11
The early morning after M/TU3 10 (a clock reads 12:10). Nova's reference to "the New Avengers" places this story after A4 10.
Nova also notes that "the New Warriors might be getting back together - again," which places this story after NW3 3-FB (8-9).
He also notes that his "ex-girlfriend just had a baby," and that he "might be graduating college soon." Carol notes that Jennifer
can control her transformations into She-Hulk, so this story must be after Jen's stint in Bone in S-H4 4-FB (21:4). "It's been so
long" since Jen Walters saw Bruce Banner. Nova and Spidey fight and defeat the Rhino, who apparently surrendered to Spidey
the last time they met - hours earlier in M/TU3 7. Mystically detecting the destruction of Tokyo, Dr. Strange calls together
Spidey, Nova, She-Hulk, Warbird (in classic black costume), and Bruce Banner to deal with the source of the cataclysm; Cap and
Iron Man aren't in New York (Cap must've skipped town quickly). Strange transports the group to the ruins of Tokyo, where
they see Logan battling Titannus; Logan was already in Tokyo, probably having taken a fast X-jet there right upon hearing of the
destruction on the news after defeating Ringmaster. Banner changes into Hulk and is clobbered by Titannus, who asks the heroes
for help. Full moon.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #12
The same day as M/TU3 11. Tyrannus gives the heroes a cock-and-bull story about his past and tries to convince the heroes to
help him kick the Trellions' butts, but the heroes don't buy it and attack.
MARVEL TEAM-UP v3 #13
The same day as M/TU3 12. This story must occur before ROGUE3 7 (1-12) and NW3 1-FB (1:7), and probably occurs before
PPTSS2 23 (2). I have SHIELD here before HERC 5 (21:1-21:5) and thus Cap here before HERC 5 (13-19). The heroes fight
Titannus, who breaks She-Hulk's left arm and injures Spidey's right arm; this is the arm other than the one that was injured in the
Raft breakout, and Spidey notes wanting to go home and "heal for a month." As the battle rages, Strange and Nova free Amissa
from stasis and bring her to the scene, where she confronts Titannus with the truth about their relationship. Unable to handle the
truth, Titannus blows his own head off. SHIELD arrives to wrap up, and Nick Fury (LMD) is in charge. Quasar is summoned to
take Amissa back to her home planet, but on their way through space, she cold-cocks Wendell and takes off on her own. Fury
(LMD), Logan, and Spidey follow up with the alternate Stark, who with the Diamondback LMD is still in SHIELD custody. The
alternate Stark informs the group that, in his reality, the plot to get the heroes back to Trellion was Amissa's, not Titannus'.
Meanwhile, as SHIELD inspects Titannus' body, they note that his head is growing back.
HERCULES #4 (1-12)
One day, probably before FOES 1. Zeus and Hera argue and the Olympian gods decide to let Hercules' labors continue without
Zeus' interference. For his eighth labor, Hercules defeats the Mole Man's monsters as they try to invade Hawaii.
HERCULES #4 (13-19)
One day. This segment probably occurs after A4 10; I have this after M/TU3 13. Hercules knows that the New Avengers reside
at Stark Tower, but the TV crew does not, an indication that this story occurs before A4 11-FB (3-4). Hercules meets with Cap
and they apologize to each other, then for his ninth labor, Hercules decks Cap and takes his shield. Wolverine, Spidey, Iron
Man, and Spider-Woman try in vain to stop Hercules.
GAMBIT v4 #5 (1-21:4)
The day after GAM4 4. While Alphonse presents Cooper with the tarot deck, Wolverine (wearing the costume with the
diamonds down the legs) rescues Gambit from Stone, a hired goon who has been torturing him all morning. He takes Gambit to
Madame Camille's to recover, and explains that when he arrived in New Orleans he found Dan dead at Gambit's apartment. The
two of them hatch a plan to scare Alphonse into betraying Cooper. Using props and costumes, they impersonate the entire X-
Men team and spend all afternoon busting up Cooper's underworld operations. As Cooper prepares for a midnight ceremony
involving the tarot deck, Alphonse panics and, afraid of being killed by the X-Men, brings the deck back to Gambit. Short
sleeves and light long-sleeved shirts in New Orleans.
GAMBIT v4 #6 - FB - FB
The same night as GAM4 5 (1-21). Gambit hands Alphonse the cards.
GAMBIT v4 #5 (21:5-22)
The same night as GAM4 6-FB-FB. Gambit asks Alphonse for one more favor and prepares to avenge Dan's death with the final
phase of his scheme.
GAMBIT v4 #6 - FB (19:7)
The same night as GAM4 5 (21-22). Wolverine locates the unviewable card and burns out his eyes.
Saturday, May 30
GAMBIT v4 #6 - FB (4-15)
The early morning after GAM4 6-FB (19:7). After Wolverine departs Madame Camille's with a bandaged face, telling Gambit
not to ask him any more favors, Gambit, Camille and Ginny tune in to watch Cooper's midnight ceremony on their security
camera network. Cooper summons three demons, reveals that he's a demon himself, and tries to bind them to his service using
the tarot deck, but when the case is open, all that's inside are Uno cards. The demons rebel, burning off Cooper's face, and in his
anger, he blames the thief he scorned for the card switch - Jack Jessup. Camille tells Gambit to warn Jessup, saying not even he
deserves to be attacked by a demon, but when Gambit goes to Jessup's apartment, Jessup taunts him about killing Dan and
Gambit decides to leave him to his fate. Cooper shows up just as Gambit leaves, heading for Lili's, and screams fill the air.
GAMBIT v4 #6
The same day as GAM4 6-FB (4-15). Gambit is mystically bound, floating over a pentagram as Lili Penrose prepares to cut his
heart out. She wanted him to steal the cards so she could gain their power, but she needs a human sacrifice to complete the spell.
Upon request, Gambit explains to her how he took care of Cooper and Jessup. Lili reveals that she killed her uncle, and tries to
gouge out Gambit's heart, but her blade bends on something beneath his shirt. Ripping it off, she begins to scream as her face
boils and her eyes burn - Gambit had taped one of the four unviewable tarot cards to his chest. As she writhes in pain, her
binding spell fades, freeing Gambit, who pours hydrochloric acid on the cards and says that he'll take them to the X-Men, who
hopefully can destroy them. As Gambit leaves the estate, the police arrive, surrounding him. Charging some cards, Gambit
strikes a pose and a cocky smile. Full moon.
HERCULES #4 (20)
One day. For his tenth task, Hercules retrieves a Doombot from Latveria.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #1 - FB (1:7)
One day. This flashback must occur after M/TU3 13. Night Thrasher has sold the rights to air "The New Warriors" as a reality
TV show so they can fight crime outside NYC because he can no longer afford it. The Warriors' RV is filmed 90 miles outside
Fairbury, Illinois. Green grass in Illinois.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #1 - FB (1:4)
The same night as NW3 1-FB (1:7). A shot of Fairbury is filmed by the Warriors' crew on arrival. Green trees in Illinois.
HERCULES #4 (21:1-21:5)
One night. For his eleventh labor, Hercules hijacks a SHIELD Helicarrier. Nick Fury (LMD) is on board and appears to be
director, or at least the leader of the SHIELD crew aboard this Helicarrier.
Sunday, May 31
GAMBIT v4 #7 (1-20)
The day after GAM4 6. It is "three weeks" after GAM4 7-FB and probably a few days before GAM4 7 (21-22). This story must
occur after X 170 because Alex's headpiece is gone in GAM4 10. At a New Orleans jail, Gambit is interrogated about the events
of the last storyline, and is released. Tanaka gives Gambit a ride, but they make a detour at the bank which is being robbed by
Emery. Inside, Gambit has a quick fight with Emery and then talks him down. He even convinces the guy to attend the Xavier
Institute. Suddenly, Emery is shot and killed by Tanaka. Later, Tanaka gives Gambit a ride home from the bank and reveals that
she killed Emery on purpose to further her career. She drops him off at the cemetery, where Dan Down's funeral is finishing up.
Madame Camille, Genevieve, and others are in attendance.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #1 - FB (1:5-1:6)
The day after NW3 1-FB (1:7). The Warriors' crew interview the pizza shop owner, delivery boy, and cop "two months" after
their encounter with Tiger Shark and Armadillo.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #1 - FB (2-23)
The same day as NW3 1-FB (1:5-1:6). This segment must occur before ASMU2 12-FB (6:1). The New Warriors arrive at the
residence where the pizza boy was roughed up. They send Speedball to the door as a delivery boy. He is met by Tiger Shark and
Armadillo, who smack him around. Outside, a production crew orders Namorita (who is blue once again) and Nova in. They
engage the two, who are still chained together after escaping the Raft. After flying them in the air and dropping them, Nova asks
Tiger Shark to surrender. He replies by using the unconscious Armadillo as a weapon. Tiger Shark goes after new member
Microbe but he is saved by Night Thrasher, who uses acrobatics to force Tiger Shark to become entangled in his own chain.
Nova, Namorita, and Speedball then knock him out. The camera crew was unable to get good footage for the Warriors' pilot
episode and have the Warriors pose the unconscious villains for retakes. Thrasher explains the crew and after a citizen thanks
them they agree to continue. They head to Kansas. Green grass and trees in Illinois and the crew is in shorts.
HERCULES #4 (21:6-22)
One day. Eurystheus gives Hercules his final labor - to go to Hades and retrieve a flower from the hair of Hercules' wife,
Megara, who, along with her children, were killed by Herc long ago.
The same day as HERC 4 (21-22). This story probably occurs before FOES 1, must occur before A4 11-FB (3-4), and probably
occurs before ARES 1 (12-22). When Herc decides to bow out of his final labor, Allsworth convinces him to act like a man and
complete the task. Hercules bargains with Pluto (now an underworld boss calling himself Hades again) to enter his realm. Once
in the netherworld, Herc and crew face Cerberus and a legion of soldiers. Megara arrives with her children and forgives Herc.
Hera concedes and tells Eurystheus that he's lost. Herc returns and battles Eurystheus and Archelous, who end up skewering
each other. That night, as Herc goes to Greece to pay his respects at his family's graves, everyone involved in Herc's labors -
including Cap, Iron Man, Spidey, Logan, Fury (LMD), Namor (costume not seen), Ka-Zar, and Shanna - gathers at a bar. Zabu,
the Doombot, Dragon Man, Lockjaw, and Cap's shield are still locked up in Eurystheus' basement, but they're presumably
released immediately after this.

It must be the day after NX 15 (7-23). Julian gives encouragement to Sofia before he leaves Xavier's with his team. Dani tells
Sofia that several of her teammates have requested transfers off the squad. "Classes are over" at Xavier's. Green grass and trees
NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #1 (4-20)
The day after NXH 1 (3:2). The same day as NX:AXY (1-3). When the Hellions have trouble getting on a plane for California,
Julian pulls his parents' strings and gets the DHS to let them go. When the group arrives at the Keller mansion, Julian's father is
upset about his actions at the airport. Convinced of Julian's irresponsibility, he removes his son from his will. Raiding his

outdoor swimming weather in Los Angeles.

The same night as NX:AXY 1 (1-3). As Dani, Shan, and Amara observe from a distance, the New Mutants work out their
differences during a camp-out by the lake at the Institute. Dani thanks Amara for joining the staff and Amara suggests that Dani
visit Rahne to make up with her. David and Noriko kiss. The weather must be warm enough for camping outdoors. Green grass
and trees at Westchester.
SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED v2 #14
One night. Because Felicia refers to her help in breaking Osborn out of prison, this story probably occurs after M/KSM 12 (19-
22), and Peter and M.J. are still living in their apartment, this story must occur before ASM 515 (19-22). Spidey and Black Cat
break into the Latverian Embassy and fight a Doombot to retrieve a spider-tracer with Peter's fingerprint on it.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #23 (1)
One night, "a few nights" before PPTSS2 23 (3-20). In her Paris home, Sarah lies by her toilet after having taken lots of drugs.

of what he can do for them. Meanwhile, Diamondback (Rachel Leighton) and Paladin spy on the California compound of
GenetAssist, where a lethal weapon is being designed.
YOUNG AVENGERS #9
One school day, shortly after YAS 1. This story must occur after A4 10. Captain America tells the press that the Young
Avengers are disbanded. Carol Danvers (now called Ms. Marvel again) saves a jumper. Billy, Teddy, Cassie, and Kate meet up
and worry about Eli, who hasn't responded to any of their calls, e-mails, or texts. Eli coincidentally shows up, just before Super-
Skrull arrives to claim Teddy, who he says is a Skrull. The kids escape and head to Billy's house, where they find Teddy's
worried mom. Super-Skrull bursts in, holding Eli hostage. The alien releases a probe that reveals Teddy's mom to be a Skrull,
who was assigned by the Skrull empress to protect Teddy. Super-Skrull kills her and takes off with Teddy. Green trees in New
YOUNG AVENGERS #10
The same day as YA 9. In Avengers Tower, Jarvis plays chess with the new Vision, who has not yet been allowed to go on
Avengers missions despite the fact that he's passed the requisite tests and training. They are interrupted by the Young Avengers,
who seek help against Super Skrull. "The Avengers are away on a mission" and are unavailable, so Vision locates another
Young Avenger - Tommy Shepherd, a speedster who vaporized his school "months" ago. Vision changes his appearance to look
less like Iron Lad for Cassie's sake. The Young Avengers break Tommy out of a detention center. Super Skrull tells the captive
Teddy that he's really Dorrek VIII, son of Skrull Princess Anelle and heir to the Skrull throne. The Young Avengers show up
and fight Super Skrull, then Kree soldiers burst in, claiming Teddy as their own.
YOUNG AVENGERS #11
The same day as YA 10. Because Logan and Sentry are both here, this story may occur after M/TU3 10. The Kree tell Teddy
that he's the son of Mar-Vell and must return with them to join their imperial militia. Teddy refuses and the Young Avengers
subdue the Kree soldiers and as the team contemplates hiding, the recuperating Super Skrull tells Tommy and Billy that they are
the sons of the Scarlet Witch. A Skrull warship appears and engages a backup Kree ship in battle. Caught in the middle, the
Young Avengers are joined by the Avengers (apparently back from their mission) - Cap, Iron Man, Spidey (in his classic
costume), Spider-Woman, Cage, Logan, and Sentry. The warring soldiers open fire and Eli is shot.
YOUNG AVENGERS #12 (1-17)
The same day as YA 11. This segment probably occurs before FOES 3 (7-22). Sentry takes Eli to the hospital. The Avengers
and Young Avengers battle the Skrulls and Kree until Teddy comes up with a plan to rid earth of the aliens. He has Super-Skrull
imitate him while Teddy imitates K'lrt. Disguised as Hulking, Super-Skrull agrees to go with the aliens and split his time
between the Kree and Skrulls. After the aliens leave, Teddy reveals his ruse and the two teams rush to the hospital, where they
meet up with Jessica Jones and see Eli getting a donation of blood from grandfather Isaiah. Eli will need surgery to recover.
Kate tells Cap that the Young Avengers will continue to fight crime and tries to convince him that the Avengers' support will
help protect them from future harm. Vision announces his intention to join the Young Avengers. Avengers Tower has the
Watchtower spires, which would seem to place this segment after A4 15, but this depiction could be an artistic error or a
momentary appearance noticed by few.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #23 (2)
The day after PPTSS2 23 (1). This segment probably occurs after M/TU3 13, ASMU2 13/2 (7-13), and SM:B 5. It must be
more than just "several weeks" after ASM 514. Peter Parker gets a phone call from the hospital in Paris where Sarah is and Peter
decides to go to her.
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #1
One school day. Mole Man and Dragon Man are probably here after HERC 5. A worker in the Baxter Building notes that he's
been working there "for four months" and hasn't even seen the FF, suggesting that the FF have actually been living there for that
length of time, meaning that it's at least four months after FOUR 12, and thus at least two months after FOUR 13 (6-11); Johnny
is seeing girls other than Kourtney, so perhaps that relationship is open. It has been "months" since Reed took a day off. Puppet
Master and Mad Thinker call a meeting of a bunch of FF foes as a ploy to collect their DNA samples, to be used in a new device
that enables the Puppet Master to control all their minds. The Trapster may appear here after having escaped from prison as
reported in ASMU2 13/2 (7-11). Summoning Dragon Man, Puppet Master visits Alicia just as the Thing arrives. Ben defeats
Masters and Dragon Man and when the rest of the FF arrive, Reed discovers the DNA samples. Green trees and light clothing in
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #2 (1-9)
The same day as FOES 1. Sue notes that Reed hasn't slept "in nearly two days" and that Crystal can take the kids "until
Tuesday." Reed notes that "the Raft just suffered a massive jailbreak," so this story must occur shortly after A4 3-FB. He also
notes that "Henry Pym's Big House is currently being investigated regarding the legalities of shrinking prisoners;" apparently
Reed is referring to the facility by its old name, not its current name, the Lang Memorial Penitentiary. The FF arrest the Mad
Thinker and imprison him with Puppet Master and Dragon Man at the Baxter Building. She-Hulk - big and green, and so after
her stint in Bone in S-H4 4-FB (21:4) - appears after having picked up Franklin from school and notes that she has "a big case
tomorrow." Reed plans to use the Puppet Master's control device to track all the villains and proactively defeat them.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #2 (2-21)
Probably the night of the day after NW3 1-FB (2-23). It is "two weeks" before NW3 2 (22-23). The Warriors arrive in Salina,
KS and are greeted by their producer Ashley and Erika Hopkins of the Society for the Protection of Television Animals. Erika
allows only Speedball, Microbe, Namorita, and crew member Dave to enter the zoo. Once inside, Namorita communicates with a
walrus who leads them into a trap. The Super Apes caged them with John Burrows. Night Thrasher, Nova, and crew member
Brad head to the rescue and fight a bunch of wildlife along the way. Speedball tricks the silverback and baboon into fighting so
they can distract them to escape. All the Warriors meet up and fight them, but Erika enters and wants them to stop hurting the
animals. After hearing her the Super-Apes agree to talk things out.
X-MEN UNLIMITED v2 #9 - FB (6-10)
One night, probably several days before XU2 9. Logan and his pal Johnny win a wager on a fight in a bar, and when the losers
confront them with guns outside, Johnny instinctively takes a bullet for Logan and dies.
GAMBIT v4 #11 (1-4)
The night of the day after GAM4 11-FB (2:1-2:4). It is "one week" before GAM4 11 (5-21). Tanaka interrogates the security
guard about the robbery "last night." Tanaka is sure the thief is Gambit, not Bandit. Green grass and trees in New Orleans. The
full moon is inconsistent with that shown in GAM4 11 (5-21).
Tuesday, June 2
NEW X-MEN: HELLIONS #2 (4-6)
The day after NX:H 2 (1-3). The Kingmaker gives Santo his wish of being a wrestling star.
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #2 (10-22)
The day after FOES 2 (1-9). It may be a few weeks, not a "few months," before FOES 5 (1-18). Reed gets Andrew Lewis, the
man who designed the Vault, to agree to design a new prison Reed wants to build in the Negative Zone. The FF go to the Zone
to scout out a location and battle and defeat Annihilus, only to be faced with a second Annihilus. Lewis reports back home to
discover that his "wife" is a bug-like alien. Green trees and bushes in New York.
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #3 (1-6)
The same day as FOES 2 (10-22). It is "some time" before FOES 3 (7-22). The two Annihiluses battle each other and the FF
return from the Negative Zone.
I (HEART) MARVEL: MY MUTANT HEART #1
One day. Wolverine (in his current blue and yellow costume) visits a grave at Zorgvlied Cemetery, Amsterdam, with a yellow
locket in hand. He recalls the story of the woman who gave the locket to him in 1943.
SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN v3 #23 (3-20)
One day, "a few" days after PPTSS2 23 (1) and "two days" before PPTSS2 24. Peter arrives in Paris, where we see green trees.
Sarah explains that her drug intake is to treat severe headaches unique to her condition. She is released from the hospital and she
and Peter go back to her house, where he has decided to stay. Peter calls M.J. and lies to her about his accommodations, then he
swings around Paris at night. There is an error regarding the relative times of day in Paris (night) and New York ("7 AM"). Full
SABLE & FORTUNE #1 (1-4)
One night. At Vollmond Castle in Hamburg, Germany, two of Wild Pack's operatives, Beta Unit, talk about Sable's
authoritarian leadership of the Pack. One of them mentions a rumour she threw Berecz out the window of her office for taking
her parking place. The other operative corrects this: Berecz was a mole, she had a talk with him and he jumped out of the
window. Silver Sable then calls in the Beta Unit as backup while she moves into the castle with the Alpha Unit. However, the
castle is abandoned except for a tied-up female hostage with an attached note reading: "Silver. A day late and a dollar short.
XOXO." Sable responds: "Not again."

them. Kevin receives a cure for his death touch. Green grass and trees in Oregon and California during "summer."
SABLE & FORTUNE #1 (5-7)
Presumably the day after S&F 1 (1-4). At Wild Pack headquarters in Symkaria, Sable, suspecting a leak within the organization,
requests personal files from everyone in the facility. As it turns out, Sobczak, a new operative, didn't report in "yesterday."
Sable then catches another operative eating falafel on duty and tells him he's fired. The operative identifies himself as Jaworski
and tells her she can't fire him because of a law the Symkarian parliament passed "last year" that requires documentation of at
least three written warnings before you can get fired. Sable punches him out as warning number one. She then goes on to tell the
operatives present that things have to change within the organization, as "four of [her] last ten operations [were] compromised by
betrayal or incompetence". She tells the operatives to get out of her sight as she catches one of them reading a travel catalogue
during her speech.
SHE-HULK v4 #1 - FB (9:6)

since FF 509 (1-3). Fury (LMD) gives the okay to Reed's Negative Zone prison, the beginning of whose construction is
scheduled "in six weeks." Repairs to the damage done to Alicia's apartment in FOES 1 are completed and Miranda leaves
Johnny for standing her up in FOES 1. Seeking the technology to contact his homeworld - and perhaps here after YA 12 (1-17)
- Super Skrull poses as Franklin to gain access to the Baxter Building. His cover blown, the Skrull battles the FF as Franklin
waits in the rain for someone to pick him up from school (which may be a summer semester at his private school). We see green
trees and short-sleeved shirts in New York.
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #4 (1-5)
The same rainy day as FOES 3 (7-22). Sue pummels Super-Skrull and Franklin phones home. Crystal arrives with Valeria, who
she's been babysitting. She notes that she has "a date tomorrow," but will "be free for the weekend." She suggests that She-
Hulk babysit too.
GAMBIT v4 #7 (21-22)
One day, probably a few days after GAM4 7 (1-20). On the banks of the bayou, Emery's aunt Antoinelle casts a voodoo spell to
raise the dead - Emery, Dan Downs, and a bunch of other corpses are zombified. Full moon.
GAMBIT v4 #8
The same day as GAM4 7 (21-22). The living dead attack a bayou cruise boat and run into Brother Voodoo. More zombies
attack the restaurant in which Remy is treating Ginny to dessert as thanks for her help with the Penrose heist. The battle empties
out into the street, where Gambit meets Drumm. Remy recognizes one of the zombies as Dan Down, whose funeral Remy was
"just at." Remy pauses in mid-battle, and as Jericho tries to get him back in the game, the dead Emery Arcenaux shows up.

fight some zombies at Antoinelle's place. Gambit talks some sense into her while Brother Voodoo has alligators eat zombies.
Gambit stops Tanaka from killing Antoinelle, which doesn't make Tanaka happy. Later, Gambit puts Dan Downs back into his
coffin, and Brother Voodoo offers to give Gambit psychological therapy sessions because, in his professional opinion, Gambit's
messed up. Later still, Genevieve mails a DVD to Rogue at the X-Mansion.
BLACK PANTHER v4 #1
One day, presumably "15 years" after T'Chaka's death. At a National Security Agency meeting, a general is upset that Wakanda
has declared their country a no fly zone. Everett Ross arrives to give a brief history, after which the general wants to invade
Wakanda. When Everett explains how it's already been tried, the general assaults Everett and Dondi has him thrown out. That
night in a prison cell, Cannibal says to Klaw that a presidential pardon is appealing. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
BLACK PANTHER v4 #2

is about to open it, but Emma telepathically pulls him back to consciousness. The reference to "February" is entirely in Kurt's
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #8 (1-2)
Probably the same night as NC3 7. At the Xavier Institute, Storm and Beast interrogate Vermin about why he attacked

later," Reed (now growing a beard) notes that, with SHIELD's assistance, the new Vault could be completed in "a matter of
weeks" - before FOES 5 (1-18). The FF decide to field-test Reed's device for hunting down their foes, so they drop the kids off
with She-Hulk (who's sleeping around) and head underground. The team battles and captures Mole Man and bring him to the

and the dissolution of the Wild Pack. Shortly afterwards, Sable is visited in her office by operative Andreas Vadas, who she
reminds of the four failed operations and a fifth that failed "yesterday." Vadas agrees that the Wild Pack is a bureaucratic mess
but tells her he is going to miss her. He leaves her with a plane ticket to France and a CD containing his personal case notes on
the Hamburg operation. This includes information showing a high possibility that comm/optech. Artur Sobczak and unit

that they are headed for another circus in Florida. Kurt knows this circus in Florida and has several memories about it, for it is
where he spent a short time between Germany and joining the X-Men. Wolverine radios Cyclops, who arrives with the
Blackbird and transports the injured to a hospital in Munich. While Cyclops is on the phone with Emma, Kurt, Logan, and
Christine take the Blackbird without Cyclops' knowledge and head for Florida. On the plane, Nightcrawler remembers his time
in Florida. On reaching Florida, Nightcrawler uses a special glider to make it to the swamp carnival while Logan and Christine
park the Blackbird. Once Kurt reaches the circus, he hunts for Jardine to warn him about the coming terror. In Limbo, Margali
and a wounded Magik interrogate Nightmare who does not know why he attacked her. Suspecting he was used, the three team
up to find out who's responsible. At the circus, Nightcrawler finds Jardine and warns him but he does not care. Just then an
army of possessed show up including Man-Thing, Carrion, Gator, and zombies. Green grass and trees in Germany, Florida, and
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #10
The same day as NC3 9. As Nightcrawler still tries to convince Jardine to leave the circus, the Man-Thing attacks them. Kurt
attacks Gator, then Carrion. Christine and Wolverine show up. Carrion says they are after the Soulsword, but Kurt says he does
not have it. During the battle, everyone except Kurt, Logan, Christine, and Jardine are put into a deep sleep by Nightmare,
Magik, and Margali, who arrive in the nick of time. Magik informs Kurt of an imbalance on a cosmic scale and Kurt gets
frustrated by the usual way Amanda doesn't answer his questions. Margali reveals that an incredibly powerful source is working
behind the scenes to get to the Soulsword through Kurt. Nightcrawler points out that Amanda is supposed to have the
Soulsword, but Amanda reveals that sometime ago, she hid it within him so evil could not get it. Margali withdraws the
Soulsword from Kurt and Jardine asks if he can hold it. When she refuses, millions of flies pour from him and attack the group.
Kurt warns everyone to cover their eyes and ears while the flies swarm around them. When it's all over, Wolverine stabs
Christine; he is now possessed by the entity known as Hive. He vows to kill them all to get the Soulsword. Green grass and trees
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #11
The same day as NC3 10. Given Logan's remark in NC3 8 that not everyone can revisit their past, this story likely occurs before
HOM 1 (7-17). Nightcrawler teleports the Hive-possessed Wolverine away before he can injure anyone else while Magik tends
to the wounded Christine. Kurt teleports Logan to the top of a roller-coaster and twists his neck, then teleports to check on the
others. Magik has stabilized Christine. Nightmare finds where Wolverine's displaced consciousness was sent and Margali tells
Kurt to defeat Hive with the Soulsword. Nightcrawler returns to Hive, whose Wolverine body has healed. Hive leaves Logan's
body and Nightcrawler finds the demon among the insects. Kurt tries to get info but Hive is then killed by the one orchestrating
this affair. Wolverine returns to normal and Kurt rejoins his friends. He learns Christine will be safe and the others believe it is
all over, but Kurt knows better. Green grass and trees in Germany. Full moon.

BLACK PANTHER v4 #4 (7-22)
The day after BP4 3 (22-23). The new Black Knight gives a religious speech to the group before the dawn attack on Wakanda.
W'Kabi informs the Panther that the Rhino is coming. Wakandan jets pursue the Rhino, but they're intercepted by the Black
Knight, who destroys one jet. Shuri investigates the tremors when a projectile falls into the factory. Igor comes out and kills all
the factory workers. In Washington, an aide alerts Everett Ross of the attack on Wakanda. In briefing Dondi, the general from
BP4 1 mentions that Niganda is using "Ulysses Klaw, a high-level Belgian assassin." Also involved in the attack are Batroc and
a new Russian Radioactive Man. One of the government guys urges helping their Wakandan allies, but another mentions that
U.S. troops are spread too thin already. Green grass and trees in Washington, DC.
BLACK PANTHER v4 #5
The same day as BP4 4 (7-22). In Wakanda, the Rhino defies the jets that are trying to pinpoint him. Nigandan troops enter
through the path the Rhino made, so Black Panther calls M'Butu and they insult each other. Black Panther decides to fight the
new Black Knight on his skybike. Shuri calls Uncle and tells him about Radioactive Man. Rhino is subdued with gas and the
Panther defeats Black Knight. At the United Nations in New York, Cannibal approaches T'Shan. Posing as the Radioactive
Man's wife, she tells them a story about how he ''died'' at Chernobyl and that he contacted her recently. She mentions
"...finding out your husband's not dead after 10 years?" She asks if Wakanda can cure him while someone does a background
check on her. On a aircraft carrier, Everett Ross briefs the brigade being sent in to "assist" Wakanda. On his skybike flying over
the battle, the Panther is being briefed on the situation. Instead of joining the fight he decides to go to Niganda. He finds and
attacks M'Butu. The Queen is attacked by Batroc, who is with Klaw. Klaw wears his red jumpsuit, sans hat. He still has human
features and hair, no flat nose, etc. The brigade arrives at Wakanda.
BLACK PANTHER v4 #8 - FB (8:5)
The same day as BP4 5. As war with Wakanda breaks out, the Nigandan power grid fails and Dr. Paine's mutated creatures
escape before his factory's backup generators kick in. The creatures eat people.
BLACK PANTHER v4 #6
The same day as BP4 5. Having pummeled M'Butu into unconsciousness, T'Challa talks to Klaw and the Queen via
videophone. Klaw tells Igor to make more tremors, which he does, and the brigade notices. Klaw tells the Panther to kill
himself. In New York, T'Shan, Cannibal, and the other guy leave the UN to fly to Wakanda in a trip that will last "an hour." In
Wakanda, Black Panther and Klaw are still talking through videophone when T'Challa's uncle shows up in his old Black Panther
outfit with security people. Security takes down Batroc, but Klaw shoots the uncle's leg off. Klaw hacks into Wakandan
cyberspace. He notices the brigade and tells Igor to destroy Wakanda in 15 minutes. Shuri attacks Igor. W'Kabi notices Klaw
in cyberspace and boots him out. Igor chases Shuri, who finds Black Knight's Ebony Blade. Klaw notices Batroc has been tied
up and that everyone else is gone. Outside, the uncle is carried away by security people and the Queen is carrying his leg. Klaw
takes aim at them through the window. The Panther jumps through the window and hits Klaw as he fires; the blast hits the
airborne jet, which contains T'Shan, Cannibal, and the other guy. Black Panther fights and kills Klaw. Shuri kills Igor with the
Ebony Blade. At the plane crash site, Cannibal jumps into T'Shan's body; the other guy is dead. Black Panther tells the recently
arrived brigade to go away. Everett Ross is on the aircraft carrier with the military guys on the other end of the call.
BLACK PANTHER v4 #10 - FB (10:4)
The same day as BP4 6. T'Challa has the Rhino and Black Knight in captivity.
Saturday, June 6
DEFENDERS v3 #1 (1-12)
One day, sometime after C&DP 10. Because Namor (who is back in his classic trunks) suggests that Strange consult the
Avengers, this story must occur after A4 10. Nightmare possesses Wong and warns Dr. Strange that Dormammu and Umar have
teamed up to invade earth. Strange recruits Bruce Banner, who is wandering the back roads of New Mexico, and Namor, who is
fighting off yet another barbarian invasion of Atlantis.
DEFENDERS v3 #1 - FB
The same day as DEF3 1 (1-12). Strange tries to recruit the Silver Surfer, but the Surfer declines, preferring to surf with a bunch
of young folks at Long Beach, likely making it summer.
DEFENDERS v3 #1 (13-22)
The same day as DEF3 1-FB. As he prepares for an invasion, Dormammu argues with Umar and notes that "there's been a shift
in the cosmic axis! The very laws of the universe are evaporating before our eyes." Namor and Banner bicker at Strange's
Sanctum, and when Banner turns into Hulk, Strange teleports the them and himself to the barrier between the Dark Dimension
and Dormammu's realm. A shifting of the barrier has caused Hulk to land on the side with the Mindless Ones instead of in
Dormammu's domain with Strange and Namor. Dormammu detects the Defenders and teleports his army to battle them.
DEFENDERS v3 #2
The same day as DEF3 1 (13-22). Dormammu captures Strange and Namor while Umar takes possession of the Hulk, turned to
stone. The Surfer is disillusioned by his surfer friends. Umar taunts Dormammu and the pair journey to encounter Eternity,
inending to bend him to their will and remake all creation.

The same day as DEF3 2. Dormammu absorbs some of Eternity and remakes reality in his own image. The Surfer questions the
customs of the surfers. Umar turns the Hulk back to normal and has her way with him. She gets paranoid when Hulk turns into
Banner. After he's given some water, Subby breaks free and releases Strange. They travel from the Dark Dimension to find the
earth transformed. Dormammu observes their arrival with an ersatz version of Dr. Strange.
DEFENDERS v3 #4
The same day as DEF3 3. Umar tries unsuccessfully to get Banner to change to Hulk and the ersatz Dr. Strange tortures Clea.
The ersatz Strange sends doppelgangers of MU heroes to battle Namor and the real Strange, who encounter an alternate Banner.
As Namor defeats the doppelgangers and meets his alternate self, Strange battles his ersatz counterpart and falls.
DEFENDERS v3 #5
The same day as DEF3 4. Namor allies himself with the doppelgangers and Umar to attack Dormammu, who is defeated thanks
to Strange's trickery, Umar's intervention, and the Hulk's strength. Umar wrests control of the Eternity power from Dormammu
but claims no interest in using it against earth. The Defenders' world returns to normal and the doppelgangers cease to exist.
Namor takes off and Strange and Banner discover that they have a new companion - a powerless Dormammu trapped in a small,
grotesque form. The Surfer takes his leave of the surfers. This story ends before "five o'clock" on a day the aquarium in New
York is open.

One day, probably a few days after GAM4 9. This story must occur before ROGUE3 7 (1-12). Kitty lectures Eugene, Quill, and
Winston about stealing and passes them off for instruction to Gambit, who has arrived from New Orleans. Gambit and the kids
train and encounter several X-Men, including Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler, Beast, Marvel Girl, Emma Frost, and Cyclops, who
recruits Gambit for a mission - fighting monsters in Manhattan with Cyclops, Havok, Polaris, Nightcrawler, and Emma. After
the group returns, the kids give Gambit the DVD. That night, Belladonna and Bandit watch the backup disk made by Genevieve.

with May. Weiderman kills his high school tormentor Rich. Spidey catches up with Weiderman but is distracted when innocents
are threatened. Enraged that Peter must have tipped off Spidey, Weiderman slips away to May's house in Forest Hills.
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #518
The same night as ASM 517. This story occurs "some months" before FNSM 8-FB. Spidey calls Stark "boss," an indication that
this story occurs after A4 6. This story must occur before M/KSM 13 (1-6). After battling Charlie again, Spidey comes up with
a way to defeat him. He traps Charlie in a pressure chamber and the high pressure solidifies Charlie's vibranium skin, rendering

The same day as ("two hours" after) NXH 3-FB. Diamondback and Paladin snatch the project from GenetAssist, but the
Hellions show up and fight them for it. The two mercenaries explain that they're working for SHIELD, but the Hellions don't
buy it and defeat the mercs. When they bring the project to the Kingmaker, who reveals his lie to the group and identifies the

The day after ASM 520 (1-2). M.J.'s play "opens in two nights," in ASM 521 (1-20). Logan's daily habits are well-known to
his teammates, so it appears he's been living at Avengers Tower for a while. Aunt May relieves Jarvis of breakfast duty and

newspaper is dated "Tuesday, October 8, 2005," but the weather forecast in it is "sunny and warm, High 95-100" - given the fact
that it's still summer vacation at Xavier's, the date is clearly incorrect.

One day, "years" after UX 64. It cannot be only "two days" before ROGUE3 11. This segment must occur after X:KPSF 5,
GAM4 10, and A4 13 (1-21). This segment, leading up to Sunfire's amputation in ROGUE3 10, must occur after M/TU3 10 and
W:S 5. It must be long enough after M/TU3 13 for Tokyo to have at least partially recovered from Titannus' destruction. It is
"three days" after a Tokyo newspaper printed a story about Sunfire's family ties to crime and terrorism and Sunfire has not slept
in that time. In a diner, Rogue sees a TV report noting that "today" the Japanese government suspended Sunfire's status as
national protector pending an investigation. The report shows a photo of Sunfire with Rogue and Mystique, but Rogue cannot
remember any such meeting. Logan leaves a message on Sunfire's answering machine, offering to help. Disgraced, Sunfire
instructs Silver Samurai to kill him but they are interrupted by a call from Rogue, who wants to help Shiro solve the mystery of
the photo. The Samurai offers to have a plane retrieve Rogue "within hours." Rogue is wearing a coat.

It must be the day after ASM 520 (20-22), as it's two days after ASM 520 (3-19). Peter shares his theory with Cap, who
encourages him to investigate. Cap notes that "for the last ten years, Hydra has been just one more crime cartel. It hasn't been
nearly the threat it used to be." - apparently Cap doesn't consider "Enemy of the State" to have been a threatening situation.
Peter consults intelligence databases on Stark's mainframe and discovers that SHIELD agents assigned to monitor Hydra have
been missing "in the last few weeks" and that Hydra leaders have gone missing as well. That night, Peter attends the opening of
M.J.'s play, "Cat's Always Lie." Then Peter and M.J. attend an after-party, where they encounter tabloid photographer Vincent
Chambliss. They also see pharmaceutical company head and Broadway lover Edgar Lascombe. Peter's Spidey-sense goes off
and he follows a suspicious man who wears a Hydra ring. The man is killed when struck by a car and Lascombe arranges for an
ambulance to take him away. Lascombe then goes home, where a hidden Hydra base exists. Lascombe reviews a plan with his
lieutenants to unleash biological weapons into the Ogallala Aquifer. Chambliss catches M.J. entering Stark Tower and, covering
up the fact that she lives there, notes that she's there to see Tony Stark.

Murdock and Foggy try to figure out what's going on. That evening, Daredevil uses his new senses to sniff out and attack the
agents. The agents gain the upper hand and Daredevil asks the Uni-Power to leave him. The Uni-Power complies and Daredevil

pushing his buttons. Tony reports to Peter that the Hydra gunman Spidey took out "last night" is an employee of Lascombe's
and instructs Peter to check on Lascombe. Jarvis and Aunt May get friendly. Spidey goes to Lascombe's place and discovers
and infiltrates the Hydra base below it. He sees Hydra preparing for the poisoning of the Ogallala Aquifer in "47 hours."
Swinging into action, Spidey encounters the ersatz Avengers.

One day, "two weeks" after NW3 2 (2-21). Papers are signed and the zoo reopens without cages. The Super Apes perform
shows and the Warriors are given the key to Salina. After filming, the Apes want the Warriors to take Erika with them but she is
assigned to them to make sure they're not exploited. After this, I presume that the apes rejoin Red Ghost to appear in FOES 5 (1-
18). Green trees in Kansas.
CAPTAIN UNIVERSE/DAREDEVIL #1 (18-22)
The day after CU/DD 1 (1-17). It is "weeks" after CU/H 1 (7-22). Matt and Milla are clearly separated from each other at this

Speedball and Microbe have a heart to heart. Night Thrasher, Nova, and Namorita are refused service at a gas station. They head
to a truck stop and Nova almost gets arrested for being with prostitutes. At dusk, the quartet return to the RV to find out Microbe
got some bacteria to fix the tire. Ashley calls to say the show has been picked up. That evening, executives plan for new
ROGUE v3 #9 (1-11)
The night (in Japan) of the day after ROGUE3 8. It is "a day and a half" after ROGUE7 (13-22). Rogue and Sunfire shake down
some lowlifes and discover that Kenuchio killed every Oyabun in Tokyo "last night." They also find out about a meeting of gang
chiefs "tomorrow night." It is a "Saturday." Full moon.
X-STATIX PRESENTS: DEAD GIRL #1
One day. The Pitiful One, a deceased super-villain, uses a green goo from hell to give life to the deceased Miss America,
Mysterio, Kraven, and Anarchist. Dr. Strange detects something amiss, and Wong takes him to see a shrink for depression. That
night, the reanimated dead folks storm the U.N. building, where they kill a bunch of folks. Strange makes contact with the Pitiful
One before the dead guys disappear. Strange decides to contact Dead Girl for help. Short-sleeve weather in New York.
GIANT-SIZE WOLVERINE #1 - FB (13:2)
One day. Wolverine fights a Hydra robot near the edge of the atmosphere.
GIANT-SIZE WOLVERINE #1 (1-17)
The same day as GSW 1-FB (13:2). It is "a couple of months" after W3 31 (1-18). In Waverly, North Dakota, LeeLee Buchman
checks out the robot that crashes in her lawn and finds Logan. LeeLee brings him into the barn and tries to clean him up. A
neighbor and the local sheriff check out the robot and think it's an alien spacecraft. They go to the nearby Buchman place to see
if they've seen any aliens. They ask Lee's stepfather Horace, but he's drunk. Meanwhile, Logan tells LeeLee hoe he ended up
here. The Hydra robot reactivates and destroys the barn, but Logan in turn destroys it. Meanwhile, Horace yells at LeeLee.
Elsewhere, a posse is being formed to fight the "alien invasion," and some Hydra agents are nearby to lend a hand. Bare trees
and coat weather in North Dakota.
Sunday, June 14
GIANT-SIZE WOLVERINE #1 (18-34)
The early morning after GSW 1 (1-17). This segment must occur before UJ 1 (4-22), in which Hydra is referred to as "foremost no longer." LeeLee fills Logan in on her family history and how the sheriff "killed" her deformed mother. Horace informs them
that the sheriff is coming and tries to tell the sheriff to go away. He doesn't listen, so Logan attacks. Hydra calls in reinforcements. Horace is killed, which upsets Mama, who's a tumor-monster in the basement, so she kills all the attackers.
Afterwards, Logan buries Mama's old human body and tells LeeLee that he'll take her to people who could take care of her.
They walk off into the sunrise.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #12 (1)
One "Sunday." Kurt goes to church.
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #5 (19-22)
The day after FOES 5 (1-18), and thus a Sunday. Reed finds a transmitter hidden in the wall of his lab. Andrew Lewis gives his
"wife" a tour of the Vault, then she reveals her alien nature, kills Andrew and the Guardsmen, and frees the captive villains,
including her boss, the Mad Thinker.
FANTASTIC FOUR: FOES #6
The same day as FOES 5 (19-22). This story probably occurs before BP4 9 and X 176 (9-23) and after HERC 5. The Wizard
escapes after this to appear in TB2 12 (1-19) and C&DP 25-FB (1/2:2). Reed traces the transmitter and figures everything out.
The FF, joined by She-Hulk and Hercules, show up at the Vault and stop the villains' escape. The Mad Thinker and Threska, the
alien who was posing as Lewis' wife, elude the heroes, but only temporarily. Thinker reveals that Reed's obsession with
building a prison in the Negative Zone was a set-up to return Threska to her native dimension, where she and the Thinker could
stay. The FF apprehend the Thinker. Later, aboard the SHIELD Helicarrier, Fury (LMD) tells Reed that Lewis blames Reed for
the murder of his real wife and the whole Vault episode. Reed probably shaves shortly after this story. Diablo next appears, still
in the Negative Zone prison, in FOUR 26.
X-STATIX PRESENTS: DEAD GIRL #3
The day after XSP:DG 2. It is baseball season, as the Anarchist and Miss America attack Yankee Stadium during a Major
League baseball game. Kraven rampages on Wall Street and the Pitiful One enlists the aid of the U.S. president to find Strange.
The Ancient One tortures Wong. Mr. Sensitive agrees to join Strange's team if they help him find Edie. Anarchist and Miss
America get together. Strange's team goes to hell and attacks the Pitiful One's team. U-Go Girl arrives with Moira, Gwen, and
Stacy and the good guys beat a retreat. Wong breaks down and reveals the location of Strange's body to the Ancient and Pitiful
X-STATIX PRESENTS: DEAD GIRL #4
The same day as XSP:DG 3. Strange's team searches the Level of Dead Bureaucrats in hell for the Pitiful One's address. The
Ancient One and the Pitiful One take Wong and Strange's body to a hotel on the lower east side. Wong escapes and impales the
Pitiful One on a fence. The Pitiful One goes to hell and chastises Tike for cavorting. Wong finds a medium to transmit a
message to Strange about the danger his body faces. The Ancient One breaks the protective spell around Strange's body.
X-STATIX PRESENTS: DEAD GIRL #5
The same day as XSP:DG 4. Strange is pulled from hell and battles the Ancient One, who reveals that he's gone bad from
jealousy of Strange. Strange defeats him and locks his essence in a bottle. Phantom Rider, Moira, Gwen, and Mockingbird
depart and the Piano Player returns to the land of the living. Mr. Sensitive, U-Go Girl, Dead Girl, and Ant-Man encounter
Anarchist, Miss America, Pitiful One, Kraven, and Mysterio in theHotel Self-Loathing. The good guys beat the bad guys, and
Tike and Maddie try to reform. Dead Girl visits Strange at his Sanctum Sanctorum before she slips back into the world of the
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #524 (4-22)
One day, "two days" after ASM 524 (1-3). This segment must occur before SM/HT 5-FB. Peter awakens in Stark's lab, cured
from the effects of the biotoxins. Stark tells him that his blood tests reveal anomalies and asks if Peter has been blacking out
lately. After "months" of auditions with nothing to show for it, M.J.'s getting all kinds of offers because of the tabloid coverage.
As she and Peter reunite, Peter notices May and Jarvis holding hands. Stark blackmails Chambliss into retracting his story about
his tryst with M.J. That night, Peter blacks out in the bathroom for an hour.
NEW X-MEN: ACADEMY X YEARBOOK #1/2
One day, sometime before HOM 1 (7-17). The squads at the Xavier Institute pose for their class pictures with their advisors,
including Magma. I theorize that the occasion for these photos is the beginning of a summer semester, following the return of the
Hellions in NX:H 4 (17-22). Amara appears after this in X:198 1 (1-2).
ROGUE v3 #9 (12-23)
The night (in Japan) of the day after ROGUE3 9 (1-11), so it must be Sunday. At the gang chiefs' meeting, Silver Samurai calls
for their allegiance. Rogue and Sunfire attack and Kenuchio escapes, but Rogue discovers where his safe house is.
ROGUE v3 #10
The same night (in Japan) as ROGUE3 9 (12-23). "Twenty minutes later," Rogue and Sunfire arrive at the safe house and are
defeated by Deathstrike, who amputates Shiro's legs. "Three hours later," Rogue awakens, chained to a bed near Shiro, who's on
life-support. Blindspot arrives and restores the memories of her that she had stolen from Rogue. Blindspot explains how she's
been deceiving Deathstrike to stay alive.
ROGUE v3 #11
The same night as ROGUE3 10. It cannot be only "two days" after ROGUE3 7 (1-12); the erroneous reference can be chalked
up to Sunfire's physical and mental state. Everyone learns how they've been played by Blindspot, and when Deathstrike attacks,
Blindspot forces Rogue to absorb Sunfire's last reserves of power, apparently killing him. Rogue defeats Deathstrike, and when
the X-Men (Havok, Polaris, Iceman, and Wolverine) arrive on the scene, Blindspot removes Rogue's memories of being an X-
Man, reverting her to her villain days. Rogue subdues the X-Men, who she now sees as enemies.
ROGUE v3 #12
The same night as ROGUE3 11. Rogue battles the X-Men and flees with Blindspot. Rogue realizes that she "must be pushin'
thirty" and gets Blindspot to admit what she did to her, all because Blindspot wanted Rogue's companionship. Blindspot
restores Rogue's memories, and Rogue gives Blindspot her costume as a keepsake in exchange for her old Brotherhood uniform
before letting Blindspot go. Rogue rejoins her teammates and they discover that Sunfire is missing. Rogue now has Sunfire's
powers permanently, which places this issue before X 171 (1-4).
CAPTAIN UNIVERSE/X-23 #1 (1-20)
One evening, shortly after CU/DD 1 (18-22). This segment must occur after UX 461 and AAF2 12 (21-22). The new Scorpion,
Agent Khanata, and other SHIELD agents observe AIM agents dressed as construction workers performing tests. When the AIM
team pulls out weapons to intimidate some homeless kids who interrupt them, X-23 assaults the agents. When backup AIM
agents attack X-23, she is merged with the Uni-Power. When X-23's adversaries pull out weapons meant to capture the Uni-
Power, but they are intercepted by Scorpion. The two women defeat the AIM goons. The Uni-Power asks X-23 to help destroy
the AIM info on it. She agrees and leaves. SHIELD radios Scorpion to not lose her. Scorpion offers to help and X-23 accepts.
Other SHIELD agents get info from the AIM guys who were turned over to them by Daredevil and they relay the info to
Scorpion. She and X-23 make their way into the base, which is deserted except for a lone scientist who has activated a self-
destruct mechanism. Scorpion is ordered to get the info while X-23 knocks out the scientist. Before Scorpion can download the
info, X-23 destroys it. Thinking they have been compromised, SHIELD orders Scorpion to take X-23 into custody. Scorpion
lies and says X-23 was destroyed in the explosion. We see coats and jackets and a full moon.
Monday, June 15
CAPTAIN UNIVERSE/X-23 #1 (21-22)
The morning after CU/X 1 (1-20). This segment must occur before NX 20. The Uni-Power thanks X-23 and departs for
someone smart enough to help it. Somewhere in space, Lilandra orders Gladiator to bring the Uni-Power to them for evaluation.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #13 (1-6)
One day. This segment must occur after ASM 524 (4-22). It is a school day at the beginning of "summer school." Absorbing
Man escapes from a desert prison. Peter, M.J., and Aunt May are now living with the Avengers in Stark Tower, where Peter and
Logan have a run-in.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #12 (2)
The day after BC3 12 (1). On a "Monday," Hank gives Kurt a check up. Hank mentions his injuries from NC3 7 and NC3 11, so
this segment probably occurs shortly after those issues Kurt's injuries here may be from some other cause. Hank tells Kurt he
can start training again.
GENERATION M #4 - FB (7:3)
One day, sometime before M-Day. Mutant Sarah Purser flies over New York City.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #7
One day. This story must occur after UX 461. Wing is depressed about the fact that he lost his powers in ASTONX3 4: "they
said I could stay here, still study. Dr. McCoy said he'd like to run some tests on me. Said maybe it's just temporary, the 'cure,'
maybe I'll get my powers back. He doesn't believe it. The way they all look at me, the pity...even Hisako, even Miss Pryde, with
her big new muscle-buddy." This suggests placement shortly after ASTONX3 6 (20-23). Wing commits suicide in the Danger
Room. The X-Men speculate on Peter's state of mind after "all those months trapped in that lab" and Scott notes that "he has
been quiet." This also suggests placement shortly after ASTONX3 6 (20-23). Agent Brand faces a hearing to determine her
possible removal as head of SWORD following the events of ASTONX3 1-6. The Astonishing team battles a subterranean
creature that terrorizes Manhattan and defeat the creature with the help of the Fantastic Four. Dialog between the FF and the X-
Men suggest that this story may occur sometime after FF 513 (a storyline in which the FF's reputation was still besmirched);
placement relative to X4 1-5 is inconclusive from the dialog - Reed: "Your team's saved the world more times than they know."
Sue: "But not with the Fantastic Four at your side and dozens of news cameras running." Scott: "Well, that wasn't exactly a
drawback, no..." Emma: "That came out wrong. Of course we'd be nothing but pleased if this helps the mutant community."
Johnny: "But what if it backfires? What if the press brands us a menace?" (Johnny seems sensitive about the FF's rep in light of
recent events.) The autumn colors of the Institute grounds shown here are part of a Danger Room environment.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #8
The same day as ASTONX3 7. The Institute's psychics are shut down. A Sentinel is activated and attacks the Institute. The
kids at the Institute are led into the Danger Room for safety and there they find the dead Wing, who is reanimated. The X-Men
defeat the Sentinel only to discover that they inadvertently trapped the kids with their enemy, the Danger Room itself. The cast
of NX must be here, but the only one discernable is Icarus. Green grass and trees in Westchester.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #9
The same day as ASTONX3 8. Through Wing's corpse, the Danger Room explains its mutated sentience to Kitty. As the
Astonishing team try to destroy the Danger Room's "brain," the Room assumes female form and takes control of an X-jet.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #10
The same day as ASTONX3 9. The female cyber-being mops the floor with the X-Men while another of the Danger Room's
cyber-forms, Danger, jets to Genosha to finish off Xavier.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #11
The same day as ASTONX3 10. The Beast's reference to checking with the Avengers to see if they have transportation places
this story after A4 10. It is only "days" after Beast told Colossus about the destruction of Genosha; why that took so long to do is
unknown. As Xavier battles Danger, Kitty and Emma discover that Xavier has been in Genosha. The X-Men, in radio contact
with Reed Richards, jet to Genosha and join Xavier in the battle. Just when it looks as though Danger is finished, she activates
the Sentinel that wiped out Genosha.
ASTONISHING X-MEN v3 #12
The same day as ASTONX3 11. This story must occur after UX 454 and before X 171 (1-4), NC3 12 (3), and X:CB 1 (16-22).
According to the narration, it is "one day" after ASTONX3 10, but this may be a matter of the difference in time zones between
New York and Genosha. The X-Men battle both the Sentinel and Danger, and what remains of Hammer Bay is destroyed.
Emma leaves in the middle of the fight to meet secretly with a manifestation of Sebastian Shaw and the new Hellfire Club, which
includes Cassandra Nova. Realizing that the Sentinel became a living being when reactivated by Danger, Kitty restores its
memories of destroying Genosha, and the Sentinel flies off into space to deal with his genocide. The Beast defeats Danger and
the X-Men learn that Danger was sentient for years and that Xavier knew it and kept her in captivity regardless.
X-MEN v2 #171 (1-4)
One night, "a couple of days" before X 172 and a "few days" before X 173 (5-20). Since there is a place at the Institute in this
issue that "used to be the Danger Room," this segment must occur after ASTONX3 12. Since Rogue displays her Sunfire power
in this issue, this segment must occur after ROGUE3 12. Foxx avoids hunters and arrives at the Xavier Institute. We see bare
and leafy trees and a full moon.
SABLE & FORTUNE #1 (12-16)
One night, "two weeks" after S&F 1 (8-11). While playing at a Monte Carlo casino, Sable hears a guy ordering a "single malt
sunrise." He introduces himself as Dominic Fortune, private investigator. Though Sable recognizes him as the 1930s
adventurer, he is not the original article. Fortune informs her that her contact is dead, but that he got to him before he died and
knows where the two rogue agents are. He also tells her he's not a fighter and needs her skills to get to them. He does have a
high tolerance for pain, however. He also informs her that there is only a 20- to 24-hour window before the two guys move on.
Tuesday, June 16
SABLE & FORTUNE #1 (17-22)
The day after S&F 1 (12-16). At sunrise Sable storms a barn near Toulon. She and Fortune quickly manage to overcome both
Sobczak and Boros, who are both wounded by Sable's gunfire. Fortune unties their hostage, Jasper Angevine. Sable thinks he
may have been used as a guinea pig, just like the girl in Hamburg. We first hear than see two men watching the happenings in
Toulon. They identify Fortune as an ""anomaly"". While Fortune ponders the meaning of the code word ""Single Malt
Sunrise"", we see Angevine on the TV screen grasping for a machine gun. One of the guys is adressed to as M. Albasini. The
final page reveals us the other: none other than Andreas Vadas himself. A map behind the two shows us six names marked on a
map: Alexei Zubilov in Russia, Cardinal Bayle in Rome, Tabansi Mugabe in Libya, Prime Minister Koizumi in Japan, Senator
Les Rickenbacker and Kirk Applewood in the US. Albasini and Vadas agree to do business and to ""kill some Infidels"". A
gunshot is heard from the TV set. Green trees in France.
SABLE & FORTUNE #2 (1-11)
The same day as S&F 1 (17-22). Angevine shoots at our heroes but is quickly punched out by Sable. Sable and Fortune figure
out that he was "triggered" by the phrase "Single Malt Sunrise." Sable spots the spider she had dropped earlier and suspects
who's behind all this. Sobzak and Boros are still unconscious. At a safe house in Marseilles, Angevine regains his senses. Sable
tries unsuccessfully to reach several of her contacts, including Summerville. Angevine calls his father to tell him where he is.
Sable wants to engage him as an optech expert, though Fortune is skeptical. Angevine agrees to cooperate. That night on the
flight to Symkaria, Sable and Fortune discuss the details of the upcoming operation and the morals of suckering Angevine into
X-MEN v2 #171 (5-12)
The day after X 171 (1-4). Alex and Emma discuss the continued impact of the Golgotha adventure on the team. Foxx is
introduced to Gambit and his class. Rogue kisses Gambit and drains his life energy. It is a school day at Xavier's, where it is
"mid-term" (I would say it's the start of a summer semester) and we see green grass and trees.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #12 (3)
The day after NC3 12 (2). This segment must occur after ASTONX3 12. On a "Tuesday," Kurt and Logan train in the now
defunct Danger Room until Kitty tells them to stop.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #6 - FB (1:1-1:3)
One day, sometime after SM:B 5. The town of Smyrna, Delaware elects a new mayor, John Peabody, who is secretly the
Corruptor. It doesn't need to be a regular election time, as the citizens are mind-controlled.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #13 (7-22)
The day after M/KSM 13 (1-6). On his way to work, Spidey battles the Absorbing Man, who gets away. The delay causes Peter
to lose his "summer school" teaching job, so he wrangles a full-time job at the Bugle and is teamed with new reporter Ethan
Edwards to cover Spider-Man. Promising him drugs, the Owl recruits Absorbing Man to kill every person on a hit list "in 72
hours;" the list includes Spidey, Daredevil, and Punisher. During an Avengers training session, Logan stabs Spidey.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #14 (1-8)
The same day as M/KSM 13 (7-22). Logan is reprimanded for stabbing Spidey. Creel kills one of the men on the hit list and his
female accomplice offers advice about how he can better use his power. Full moon.
CAPTAIN UNIVERSE/INVISIBLE WOMAN #1
One day, shortly after CU/X-23 1 (21-22). This story should not occur during FOES. The Uni-Power has sought out Reed
Richards to help it figure out its power fluctuations. While Reed runs tests and the FF watch, Gladiator bursts into the Baxter
Building explaining that the FF don't realize the danger and uses his heat vision to destroy the apparatus containing the Uni-
Power. When the dust clears, Gladiator's device shows that the Uni-Force is hiding in one of the FF. When Sue belts Gladiator
out the building, it's obvious that the Uni-Power has merged with her. Gladiator returns and tells Sue to fight its influence, but
as he tries to convince the rest of the FF, Thing and the Torch engage him. Not wanting to get innocents hurt, Sue tells Gladiator
to follow her and flies off. Gladiator catches her somewhere in the western U.S. She hits him with a rock and knocks him clear
into the Pacific. She follows him to the ocean floor and continues to beat him down. Knocking him out of the water she asks
him to stop so they can talk. Just then she is contacted by Reed who says there is a giant tsunami headed to the coast of
California. Sue lets the Uni-Power merge with Gladiator so they can get there in time. The Uni-Power rejoins with Sue and she
creates an invisible force field over San Francisco. That evening the two have returned to the Baxter Building and Gladiator
apologizes. After unsuccessfully running all the tests he can, Reed suggests that the Uni-Force return with Gladiator. The two
leave for space, where they are hit with an energy beam from an asteroid. A tractor beam pulls the unconscious Gladiator and the
Uni-Power inside. Jackets and green shrubs in New York. Full moon.
CAPTAIN UNIVERSE/SILVER SURFER #1 (1-20)
The same night as CU/FF 1. Gladiator is awoken by the Uni-Power, but he is trapped with other aliens in a stasis field that is
sapping his strength. The Uni-Power tries to merge with him but cannot break through the field. From a monitoring area, aliens
monitor the event. The leader, Krosakis, enters the stasis area and explains that he feeds on energy forces of others. He grabs the
Uni-Power and the two are merged. Somewhere in space, the Silver Surfer is struck when he feels a disturbance in the Power
Cosmic and rushes to find the cause. Krosakis is contacted by his crew about an approaching threat and heads into space to greet
the Surfer. The two fight. During the battle Krosakis hits his own ship and it begins to head toward a planet. The Surfer and
Krosakis plummet through the planet's atmosphere. On the planet's surface, Krosakis attempts to drain the Surfer and is
overloaded. The Uni-Power is freed and merges with the Surfer to save Gladiator and the damaged vessel. Gladiator tells the
coerced crew that Krosakis will be turned over to the authorities and that he and the Uni-Power can return on their course. The
merged Surfer says that it will no longer be necessary for his energies have made it so the Uni-Power can no longer be tampered
with. The merged Surfer heads to Earth.
Wednesday, June 17
CAPTAIN UNIVERSE/SILVER SURFER #1 (21-23)
The day after CU/SS 1 (1-20). At dawn the Surfer enters the home of Gabriel Vargas and the Uni-Power is transferred to him.
As Captain Universe, Vargas is about to embark on a great mission. He thanks the Surfer and they both leave.
X-MEN v2 #171 (13-23)
The day after X 171 (5-12). It is (perhaps many) "days" after X 170. Tensions flare in the Havok-Polaris-Iceman love triangle.
Emma revives Remy, who then trains with his class in what "used to be the Danger Room." Foxx makes a pass at Remy in the
shower. Logan appears. It is a school day before another school day at Xavier's.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #12 (4-5)
The day after NC3 12 (3). On a "Wednesday," Emma Frost gives Kurt a psychic therapy session while Scott watches. Later that
day in Limbo, Kurt and Amanda Sefton chat about a possible upcoming war/catastrophe on Earth.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #6 - FB (1:4)
One day. The citizens of Smyrna start getting attitude with each other. Short sleeves in Delaware.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #14 (9-22)
The day after M/KSM 14 (1-8). During his "first full-time day" at the Bugle, Peter Parker goes hero-hunting with Ethan
Edwards. When they encounter Creel on a hit job, Peter secretly changes to Spidey and battles him. Edwards shows up, masked
and flying, and knocks Absorbing Man to Hoboken. Edwards leaves, and Creel's accomplice slips away and finds Creel. When
Spidey recovers his civilian clothes, he discovers his wallet is missing. Green trees in New York.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #15
The same day as M/KSM 14 (9-22). Spidey and Edwards have a discussion about their secret identities. Creel and his female
accomplice show up at Aunt May's destroyed home and remark that Spidey must be "deep undercover now" - so his residence at
Avengers Tower is not publicly known - that places this story before A4 15, and thus before A4 11-FB (3-4). (Spidey's
appearance at Stark Tower in HERC 4 may not have been taped). Spidey visits Hank Pym at Pym's cabin in Cresskill; Pym must
have finished a semester at Oxford. Hank notes that he "just was in Manhattan for Avengers business," that "that chapter in my
life is finally closed," and that he has "no interest in jumping into my tights again." Hank agrees to have his ants look for
Spidey's wallet by homing in on a Spider-tracer inside it. Reporting to Owl on their way back from Forest Hills, Creel and his
companion are attacked by the Punisher, but Edwards intervenes to save innocent bystanders and the villains get away. "Later,"
at the Daily Bugle, Peter meets a new staffer, Laurie Lynton, who he knew in high school. Edwards shows up and asks to be
Spidey's apprentice. Peter reluctantly agrees. Green grass and trees in New York and New Jersey.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #16
The same day as M/KSM 15. Creel and his accomplice report back to Owl, who is not pleased. Creel is duped into absorbing
cocaine and his powdery form is blown around a room, scraped, and packaged for sale. Spidey takes Edwards, who now wears
tights and calls himself Virtue, to the Baxter Building, where Reed Richards and the FF test his powers. Pym's ants find
Spidey's wallet and Spidey and Virtue trace it to Creel's accomplice, who now knows Spidey's identity. A fight ensues, and
while Spidey retrieves the wallet, Edwards is exposed on TV. Peter and Edwards return to the Bugle and Edwards is hounded by
reporters. Reed calls Peter and lets him know that Edwards is a Skrull, the son of the creator of the Super-Skrull. Reed's call to
"Parker" indicates that he knows Peter's secret (an established fact), but given the events of M/KSM 18, the other members of
the FF likely don't know it, even though Reed's call is in front of the rest of the FF; this story probably occurs before the Torch's
discovery of Spidey's identity in SM/HT 5 (15-22).
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #17
The same day as M/KSM 16, even though there's mention of Creel cocaine being sold out "by noon the next day." JJJ demands
answers from Edwards and Spidey tries to help him, but he races to his Iowa hometown upon hearing that the FF are there
seeking answers. Creel cocaine gives its users temporary absorbing powers and sells out quickly, making the Owl the self-
proclaimed king of the underworld. Spidey battles the Owl's dealers while the FF fight Edwards, who is faced with his Skrull
identity. As the cocaine leaves the users' systems, Creel re-forms.
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #18 (1-9)
The same night as M/KSM 17. Absorbing Man bursts in on Spidey's battle with Owl and kills his female accomplice. Owl
escapes and Ethan shows up, now in black leather and calling himself the Tiller. He decks Creel and takes off. Spidey gets a call
from Richards, who is with the FF investigating Ethan's spaceship in Louisiana, where it ended up after the Thing punched it in
Iowa. Reed briefs Spidey on Ethan's current state.
SABLE & FORTUNE #2 (12-22)
Probably the evening of the day after S&F 2 (1-11). Sable confronts Vadas in his apartment. Fortune disguises himself as a
guard and asks other guards if he can use the apartment next to Vadas' as he has a lingerie model coming over. Fortune installs a
tracking unit that allows Angevine to following all of this from an unspecified location, presumably Marseilles. However four
guards break in to catch him in action with the model. Both Fortune and Sable have to flee, but Fortune only manages to get to
the toilet where he is wounded by a gunshot.
SABLE & FORTUNE #3 (1-4)
The same night as S&F 2 (12-22). Sable rescues the wounded Fortune and the guard who wounded Fortune falls to his presumed
Thursday, June 18
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #18 (10-20)
The day after M/KSM 18 (1-9). This segment must occur before C&DP 24 (7-19). Edwards returns to the Daily Bugle, where
he researches the Skrulls. The Owl tries in vain to get Tombstone to protect him from Creel. Spidey sets the Owl up as bait to
lure Absorbing Man into a trap in which Spidey makes Creel blow up from absorbing an explosive combination of chemicals.
Ethan shows up at the Baxter Building and destroys a portion of its top floor demanding to see Reed, who's still in Louisiana
with the FF. Spidey and the New Avengers (Cap, Logan, Cage, Iron Man, and Spider-Woman) arrive and battle Ethan. Seeing
the melee on TV, Aunt May and Jarvis go to the scene and May talks Ethan down from his confused rage. The Owl says that
"the Avengers don't even exist anymore," which places this story before A4 15, and thus before A4 11-FB (3-4). SHIELD Agent
Hill appears, presumably in charge of SHIELD, although she's spending time here helping Spidey nab Creel - not exactly a
major SHIELD-type operation, as Spidey actually points out. After this, Owl must return to prison, where he's seen in DD2 78.
SABLE & FORTUNE #3 (5-7)
Probably the day after S&F 3 (1-4). While Sable and Fortune discuss the failed Symkaria mission in the Marseilles safe house,
Angevine hacks into Vadas' files and discovers that Vadas is selling the serum that turns people into killers to a North African
terrorist group called the Sword of Glory"the night after tomorrow" in Victor von Doom's castle in upstate New York. Angevine
also finds out that there are six more sleepers out there who have been injected the serum who are currently on stand-by.
NIGHTCRAWLER v3 #12 (6-22)
The evening of the day after NC3 12 (4-5). On a "Thursday," Scott invites Kurt downstairs for a surprise birthday party,
attended by Hank, Logan, Emma, Peter, Betsy, Kitty, Ororo, Christine Palmer, Lorna, and possibly Alex. Time freezes, and Kurt
wanders around to find out what's going on. He runs into Mephisto in front of a fireplace. Mephisto reveals that he's been
orchestrating events since NC3 1. They have roughly the same chat that Kurt and Amanda had, but Mephisto offers to bring
Kurt's brother back to life. Kurt refuses to make a deal. Time unfreezes, and Kurt blows out his candles. Later that night, Kurt
and Christine decide to stop seeing each other. It's Kurt's birthday, but this segment may not occur on the same day of the year
as UX@ 4, which was set in late October; the birthday celebrated in UX@ 4 was the one he celebrated as an adopted child, but
in the years since Kurt has discovered the details of his birth, including his true birthday. A calendar on the wall says
"November," but this must be topical. Green grass and trees at Westchester. Full moon, partially obscured by clouds.
X-MEN v2 #172 (1-12)
It must be the day after X 171 (13-22) as it's still just "a couple of days" after X 171 (1-4). Gambit's distraction with Foxx
interrupts a mental exercise that Emma runs with him and Rogue. Remy then takes his students on an overnight field exercise,
during which Onyxx's and Bling's feelings for Foxx lead to altercations. It is a school day at Xavier's. Green grass and trees at
X-MEN: COLOSSUS - BLOODLINE #1 (5-8)
One night. Peter dreams, then wakes up and breaks through the wall of his bedroom and lands in the front yard. Kitty, Logan,
Scott, and Emma run out in their pajamas to check on him, then discuss his recent escape from imprisonment. Green grass and
trees at Westchester. Full moon.
Friday, June 19
MARVEL KNIGHTS SPIDER-MAN #18 (21-22)
The day after M/KSM 18 (10-20). Back at their damaged building, the FF play host to the New Avengers and thank them for
defending their home from Ethan. Ben and Sue wonder who the "little old lady" was who saved the day, and Spidey and the
Avengers conceal her identity from the FF; this is an indication that this segment occurs before SM/HT 5-FB. Meanwhile, Ethan
has made is way to a land in which his healing power is needed - a power that he was not given by Skrull programming.
One day, "two years" after film producer Richard Kornberg received permission from the FF to produce a movie based on the
heroes' lives. Herbie now has legs, but it has been established that there is more than one Herbie unit, and the one that is
Franklin's playmate in M/TU3 14/2, PP3 1/2, X 181/2, FF 534/2, SG:ELF 1/3, SG:ELF 1/4, M/PREV 32, X/RUN A/2, and other
stories is a different unit from the one shown here. Gorgon's daughter Alecto, with her boyfriend Reyno, an Alpha Primitive,
steal an imperial flyer and jet from Attilan on the moon to the Baxter Building to seek refuge from the Terrigen Mist ceremony.
Gorgon follows, and as Sue and Herbie fight him off, Alecto and Reyno run to the roof, where Franklin sees that Alecto has
FOUR #20 (1-19)
The same day as FOUR 19. It is "some time" before FOUR 20 (20-22). This is presumably the last time that the Inhumans visit
the FF prior to FOUR 30, but that isn't necessarily so. Franklin grabs onto the Inhuman kids as they fly away, and when he falls
he's caught by his father, who arrives with Ben. Gorgon is neutralized, and when Johnny arrives with Alecto and Reyno in tow,
Reed decides to discuss the situation. Despite Sue's protests, Reed decides to resect the Inhumans' culture and summons the
Inhumans, who take the kids away. Alecto is "thirteen years old." Green grass and trees in Manhattan.
X-MEN: COLOSSUS - BLOODLINE #1 (9-11)
One day during the "week" before X:CB 1 (16-22). Larisa talks to her editor Viktor about a piece she's working on. That night,
Mr. Sinister kills Larisa's roommate in a case of mistaken identity.
X-MEN v2 #172 (13-23)
The day after X 172 (1-12). X 171 (13-23) is referred to as having occurred "the other day." Bobby refers to Rogue's Sunfire
power as "new" and asks questions about it, so it can't be long after ROGUE3 12. Havok is still uptight about Bobby and Lorna.
Gambit returns with his class and Rogue cancels a telepathy session with him. Remy and Rogue talk and Remy becomes
determined to prove his love for her. After Remy tries to get Foxx transferred to another class, Foxx reveals herself as Mystique.
She explains that she is seeking to make Rogue happy by relieving tension in her and Remy's strained relationship by providing
Gambit a chance for physical release. She shape-shifts into Rogue's form and tries to seduce Remy. We see a full moon blocked
by something round.
X-MEN v2 #173 (1-4)
The same night as X 172 (13-23). Mystique reports in to her mystery boss. She notes that Logan "hasn't been around for a
while," meaning since she showed up as Foxx. Remy tells Rogue that he's having Foxx transferred out of his class but doesn't
divulge that Foxx is Mystique. Green grass and trees. The full moon is inconsistent with the crescent moon of X 174.
SABLE & FORTUNE #3 (8-21:3)
The night of the day after S&F 3 (5-7). At Castle Von Doom in upstate New York, Albasini and Vadas (now in his Silver Wolf
armor) conclude their deal. Vadas offers him the serum and as a bonus the program that gives the order to the sleepers to
eliminate the six targets. Angevine interrupts the execution of the program with a virus. Sable and Fortune then attack Vadas
and Albasini and their men. Fortune knocks out Angevine to prevent him from playing hero, but he is punched out by Albasini
who grasps the boy's laptop and wants to run the program from there. He is shot in the head by Sable before he can start the
program. Vadas escapes.
Saturday, June 20
SABLE & FORTUNE #3 (21:4-22)
Probably the morning after S&F 3 (8-21). It is likely that this segment occurs before Doom's return in FF 537-FB (8:3-8:5). At
a safe house in Newark, New Jersey, Sable and Fortune watch the events at Castle von Doom on TV while Angevine takes a nap.
Dominic Fortune is credited with single-handedly busting a terrorist arms deal and securing the arrest of four wanted terrorists.
Fortune is called a hero by Governor Pataki and asked to step forward. Sable and Fortune agree to team up, with her as boss and
him acting as a"bona fide media darling."
X-MEN v2 #173 (5-20)
The day after X 173 (1-4). It is a "few days" after X 171 (1-4). Polaris can't come to grips with the buried memory of what she
saw in space. Alex tells her he still loves her. With Cerebra's help, the X-Men discover Foxx's real identity and learn that
Gambit knew it. Rogue gets teed off at Remy. Mystique asks to become an X-Man, and the team puts her in a holding cell while
they consider the request. Since "some of the others are away on a special mission," Emma states that there will be a meeting of
"all available senior X-Men" to discuss Mystique "tomorrow." Green grass and trees at Westchester.
FOUR #21 (1-7)
One day, probably exactly a year to the day after FF3 50/4 (6-8), since it is Reed's and Sue's anniversary. The reference to "the
New Avengers" places this segment after A4 10. Having to spend the day without Reed, Sue keeps herself busy with battling the
Mole Man and Franklin's afternoon soccer practice. Alicia invites her for a girls' night out with She-Hulk, She-Thing, and
Emma Frost. Ben is noted as playing poker with "the boys," and Johnny's out with Kourtney, so it must be "many moons"
before FOUR 25 (4-6). Green grass and trees in New York.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #4 - FB (1px)
One day. An amateur video shows a shadowy figure at a time when pets are reported missing in Nuponder, Michigan.

The early morning after X 173 (5-20). "At two in the morning," Emma talks to Scott in bed about Raven. Rogue goes to
Mystique's cell to demand the truth. She tells Rogue that she tried to entice him by taking her form.

The same day as X 173 (21-22). To find the truth, Rogue tries to absorb Mystique's memories but encounters a barrier. Then
Rogue confronts Gambit. Later, as all the X-Men assemble to review Mystique's petition for membership, Raven gets into a
battle with Onyxx, who is infuriated that his crush Foxx was really Mystique. Nightcrawler comes upon the scene and asks
Raven to disappear for a while to give him time to get used to the concept of Mystique being an X-Man. The X-Men decide to
admit Mystique as a probationary member, only to find her gone and Onyxx needing medical treatment. That night, Raven meets
up with a mysterious colleague named Augustus. Green grass and trees in New York. The waning crescent moon is inconsistent
with the full moon of X 173 (1-4).
FOUR #21 (8-22)
The morning after FOUR 21 (1-7). While clubbing into the wee hours of the morning, Sue tells her comrades about her quasi-
romantic encounter with the Black Panther from years ago. She returns home at almost 6 AM to find Reed, who explains that he
was getting Sue's present - a plant from an alien garden - yesterday when he was waylaid. Green trees in New York.
NEW WARRIORS v3 #4
One evening. The Warriors arrive in Nuponder and are greeted by the entire town. Two executives of the car company fill them
in and show them new photos. It appears that Terrax is stealing the pets. Using a resident's pets as bait, they set and wait.
Terrax shows up and grabs the cat, but before they can react a young girl starts attacking him with metal debris. The Warriors try
to help but cannot see because of the debris and dust. "Terrax" escapes. The girl turns out to be Debrii, the executives' new
addition to the Warriors. Ashley and Night Thrasher argue, but Nova tells everyone to shut up because they are looking stupid
on TV. Microbe's germs tell him that "Terrax" is a machine. Leaving Debii and Microbe behind, the rest of the Warriors decide
to check out the plant with cameraman Brad. Debrii and Microbe follow with cameraman Dave. The Warriors make it through
the advanced security only to be greeted by Virginia Woolf and Sigmund Freud, who take them to meet Albert Einstein and
NEW WARRIORS v3 #5
The same night as NW3 4. The famous individuals introduce and explain that they were using the Terrax robot to steal the pets
to get the producers to send the Warriors there. They identify themselves as the Mad Thinker's Intellectual Robots and explain
the Warriors learn they were chosen because they were the least powerful super team (and after they deal with them they plan to
go after the Great Lakes Avengers). The Warriors square off against them. Einstein beats the tar out of Speedball and Namorita
is thrown through a wall into a molten metal station. Meanwhile, as Debrii and Microbe enter the plant they are taken out by the
defense mechanisms. They recover and find a pile of debris. As the Warriors approach the brink of defeat, they are saved by
Debrii, who takes out the male robots. Woolf destroys herself in molten metal. Namorita is upset because she feels they couldn't
help them. As the heroes depart, it appears members of the community are also robots.
FANTASTIC FOUR WEDDING SPECIAL
One night, during a time in which nothing special is going on in Reed's and Sue's lives. Reed and Sue (who has short, spiky
hair) think they invite each other for a night out. They drop off the kids with the Inhumans and head to the Tavern on the Green,
where they see Reeds and Susans from a number of time periods. They enter a portal into the courtyard where they witness Reed
propose to Sue in FF 35. Everyone goes back to their appropriate time-lines with no memory of the party. The "current" Reed
and Sue walk home and a kid offers to take their picture for five bucks.

Monday, June 22
NEW WARRIORS v3 #6
Probably the day after NW3 5. This story occurs before IHM:MI 1 (1-4) and probably before TB2 12 (1-19). On their way to
Smyrna, the Warriors get into a car accident. The old people act strangely and start hitting Speedball when he checks on their
welfare. The Warriors take off and meet up with Ashley. They believe the townsfolk are acting strangely, but Ashley believes its
because these idiots just elected a super-villain mayor. The Warriors proceed to the mayor's residence and are invited in. When
the Warriors enter the greenhouse they are immediately affected by the Corruptor and begin to fight each other. The only one not
fighting is Microbe, who talks to the Corruptor who just wants to make everyone like him so he can find a permanent home.
Microbe's germs start affecting him and as he goes to give the Corruptor a hug, he passes out on him smashing him through the
window. The fresh air revives the Warriors. Later, the police arrive and start detoxifying the town, the Warriors are informed
that their show has been cancelled, and Ashley and the crew take off. Later the Warriors all head home, leaving Night Thrasher
looking depressed because his foundation seems to be in further decline. The snow and coats in Delaware may be topical.

Sunday, June 28
HOUSE OF M #1 (7-17)
One day. This segment occurs after NX:AXY 1/2 and "several weeks" after NX:AXY 1 (19). Given Xavier's chronology, it
must occur after NA:I2 2. This segment occurs "three weeks" before NX 24. It is cited as occurring both "months" and "one
week" before A4 16; the former reference is probably the accurate one and is consistent with a reference to it being "months"
before A4 17. The Astonishing X-Men team meets the Avengers at "the new Avengers Mansion," which Carol Danvers (now
reclaiming her Ms. Marvel moniker)has not seen before now, and which is still being kept a secret from the general public. The
Avengers gathered include new and old members, including She-Hulk. Sentry is here, which places this segment after A4 10.
Charles Xavier, who has physically come to New York from Genosha, has called the teams and Dr. Strange together to discuss

NEW THUNDERBOLTS #10
The same day as TB2 9 (20:5-22). It is "ten days" before TB2 12 (1-19). This story probably occurs before Swordsman's
appearance in GLA 2-FB (8-22). With the skewering scene being nothing but a deception, Killgrave possesses Code Blue and
citizens of New York to attack Melissa and the Swordsman and thirteen ESU students die in the melee. Killgrave makes it
appear that Songbird killed the students. Controlled by Killgrave, the Thunderbolts arrive and battle Melissa and Swordsman.
Swordsman slices Atlas, who explodes from the release of ionic energy. Much destruction ensues, then Swordsman skewers both
Mach-IV and Genis. Wanda's reality warping kicks in and transforms the city. Burn to white.

fight. Josten and Gen. Dugan meet with Speed Demon to discuss the progress on a virus that will kill all Kree on the planet.
Unable to handle his new cosmic awareness, Genis freaks out and flies away. Forge notices the new photonic surges, Ronan
orders a chase. Genis crashes into a graveyard, on Rick Jones' grave. Ronan, Forge, Gen. Dugan, Killgrave, and Major Josten
discuss the seriousness of the situation. Josten, Dugan, and Killgrave get the anti-Kree virus from Speed Demon, then drive off
to get a hidden sentinel. As Genis continues to freak out, Josten attacks, piloting the sentinel. To avoid further catastrophe,

the bridge, the victim of an apparent suicide. Hulk Hogan, the Rhino, the Vulture, J. Jonah Jameson, and Norman Osborn react

Doom, and Storm (the "Council of Kings") on a holo-phone conference call. They discuss whether to stand together now that
Magneto has tried to kill T'Challa, because they're assuming that Magneto may now try to kill the rest of them. Doom declines
and hangs up. In Cairo, a smack-talkin' Apocalypse watches a pyramid being built and Magneto sends him after Black Panther.
Later, in his airplane, Apocalypse is flying to Wakanda when his pilots inform him that Storm is attacking. The plane crashes into
water. Namor rips the plane open and throws Apocalypse out. He grows gills and hits Namor, sending him out of the water,
where Iceman freezes him. Iceman is then attacked by Storm and then Sunfire. Storm refers to Iceman as one of Apocalypse's
horsemen. Off to the side, Angel and Nightcrawler argue about getting involved in the fight. Apocalypse enters the Panther's
castle, and off to the side Monica Lynne and Shanna fight over who's T'Challa's current girlfriend. Chasing Black Panther,

that Cable is still a baby, although he undergoes accelerated maturing into a teenager. As this happens, Sam and Teresa appear
and Forge determines that the teleportation harness has absorbed aspects of Nathan's being. Cable deduces that Black Box is
behind Wade's brainwashing and sends X-Force after him, but the team ends up defeating an empty shell of Black Box, who
actually resides in a computer. Nathan gets his memories back from the harness, then he cures Wade of the mental tampering.
"Hours later," "about twelve hours" before Nathan reaches his normal adult state, he and Wade spend some quality time be
teleporting to Intercourse, Pennsylvania, where we see green grass and trees.
CABLE & DEADPOOL #19
The same night as C&DP 18. In an Intercourse bar, Wade and Nathan trade stories of their youth as Cable's body matures to
adulthood. Green grass and leafy trees in Pennsylvania.
