Re: Spider-Man and New Avengers v1 #38

In regards to the argument between Mary Jane and Spider-Man in ASM #605 (and ignoring how OOC it is) could I make an alternate suggestion? I suggest it in fact doesn't happen during this time period at all. Instead the issue is just referencing an arbitrary point during their relationship which Mary...

Why is Sins Remembered placed after Marvel Knights Spider-Man #12?

Sins Remembered (Spec vol.2 #23-26) is placed after Marvel Knights Spider-Man #12 on the chronology. In Spec v2 #24 Peter comments that Norman Osborn is locked up in a private jail cell, implying the story occurs at some point during Marvel Knights: Spider-Man #1-12 when Norman Osborn was in prison....

Re: The passage of time

Part of my questioning of this time period comes from the fact that ASM Family #4 (?) sees Harry Osborn announced as alive and well and ASM #545 depicts his welcome home party. One would presume the events happen relatively close together and yet the former depicts Peter and Aunt May living at Betty...

Re: The passage of time

Of course, the core problem with Marvel Time is that it, quite literally, doesn't add up. The rule of thumb is that it's been 12-15 years since F4 (v1) #1, and characters' aging and references to long periods of time passing (five years between 70s clone saga and 90s Clone Saga, etc) roughly reflec...

The passage of time

Does this site do any thing in regards to the AMOUNT of time that passes across Marvel issues. I am for instance trying to deduce how much actual time passed in between the end of the flashbacks in One Moment in Time (when Mary Jane left Peter whilst he was at the hospital with Aunt May) and when we...

Re: Spidey confusion. Mantlo/Wolfman and MTU

I think this might’ve simply been a case of corresponding in written text allows us to have misfires verbal conversation would avoid. Again, I wasn’t trying to re-write the chronology, just figure things out for myself. On other threads I’ve asked for clarification as to why certain things are where...

Re: Spidey confusion. Mantlo/Wolfman and MTU

Let me start with a general statement, and then I'll get to some specifics. When I started the MCP twenty years ago, I was determined that it would faithfully reflect the chronologies laid out in the Official Index. I wanted to use the Index as a skeleton, over which I could lay all the other stori...

With the greatest of respect to you and Col_Fury et al...there is perhaps some room for some error no? Absolutely. We can make mistakes. We correct mistakes every day, and if we've made one here, we want to correct it. However, if I'm following you correctly, I just don't see anything here that ris...

Re: Spidey confusion. Mantlo/Wolfman and MTU

Why was ASM #188 placed after these stories? I don't know that anyone here keeps a database of the reasoning behind the placement of every story, and why any given story is placed before or after any other story, so it may not be possible to recall the reasoning, thirty years after the fact. I can ...

What about ASM #188 and the Carrion stuff. Why does ASm #188 happen after the Carrion stuff in Spec?

Re: Spidey confusion. Mantlo/Wolfman and MTU

I can answer the M/TU 79 question -- it's because it's a Christmastime story, and it's been placed like that every since the Official Index to Marvel Team-Up came out decades ago.... I see...then let me ask...if hypothetically we ignored the fact that it was Christmas and looked at everything else,...

Spidey confusion. Mantlo/Wolfman and MTU

Looking at ASM #188 Peter Parker bumps into Mary Jane for what seems to be the first time since his failed graduation. MJ also learns that Betty Brant has seperated from ned Leeds in this issue. However this issue is according to the chronology placed after M/TU #74-75 wherein Peter is interacting w...

Re: Spidey

I’ve talked about this elsewhere but basically...we should never presume temporal/reality alterations without A LOT of clear cut evidence ala something like Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis, One More Day/One Moment in Time, Flashpoint/the New 52, etc. Apologies for all the DC references bu...

Ah ok.

But what about the other stuff I inquired about like Torment?

Spider-Man in Torment and Powerless

I noticed on the chronology page for Spider-Man ASM #340 which kicks off the Powerless arc occurs a very long time after the Revenge of the Sinister Six, even though ASm #340 claims that happened 'a few days ago'. At the same time Spider-Man Torment occurs in that time period. I'd always assumed it ...
