Timeline!

I've had a timeline requested. Since I have one in the memories of the OOC community, locked so only existing players can see it, putting it in the Fans community like this would make it more accessible. This timeline is what I put together almost 2 years ago, when the game had been running only a couple months.

When this community started, we decided that the "modern" Marvel era was 12 years old at that point -- meaning that characters like Spider-Man or Johnny Storm, who started at 16 or so, were then 28. If we set that, then we realized that the Fantastic Four, the first team of the modern era, had their fateful encounter with cosmic rays back in 1994.

From there, I did a little time compression. Since there's a lot post Heroes-Return that's not being used, that's where I kinda broke from the formula.

I tried to note the major moments of note of most of the different characters here. If you need me to place something in here that I didn't mention, just let me know when the comic in question was released, and I can squeeze it into the approximate spot. In short, every 3.5 issues of a monthly comic is roughly equal to one month of "real time" passing. (You'll also see no "Dr. Strange appears" note, because he's one of the heroes who, in his first appearance, was already spoken of and rumored about; it's established he gained his powers before the Fantastic Four appears. Similar situation with Nick Fury.)

There remains some flexibility with this, but it can also help give you a good general rule of thumb.
