1989 Spider-Man Chronology

Post by captamr » Sun Jul 11, 2010 9:56 pm

After Spider-Man makes his way through the summer annuals of 1989, current chronology has the events of ASM 320 taking place beginning the Assassin Nation Plot. Key features here are the announcement of Mary Jane that her and Pete are going to help Harry and Liz move into their new apartment and concluding the issue is Peter overhearing Aunt May on the phone believing that she has 6 months to live. The listings squeeze in PPTSS 154 and WOSM 55 before finishing with the 6-part “Plot”. Here are the problems:

PPTSS 154 continues the Lobo brothers’ war with the Kingpin and has Peter and MJ meeting with Aunt May with no mention of impending death. They do note that Aunt May looks worried and tired. They are still apartment hunting and no mention of helping the Osborns move.

WOSM 55 continues the war with no mention of Aunt May, the Osborns and still apartment hunting. The issue concludes with Glory Grant killing Edwardo Lobo.

ASM 321 picks up the subject in a kitchen scene with Peter, MJ, and Aunt May on page 9. Page 11 has a gorgeous McFarlane MJ telling Peter she’s trying out for a part in a soap opera. The issue continues with the Osborn move and Peter and MJ taking the Soho loft as their new place and Peter leaving for Symkaria. By the end of this issue, the”Plot” storyline is in full swing, MJ is a potential actress, and they have a new loft apartment.

PPTSS 155 contains FBs to ASM 321 and a new complete FB leading to this issue’s story with the Tombstone prison break. It is here that an assumption must be made that at the conclusion of this issue, Pete, MJ, and Aunt May return to the kitchen and conclude the events of ASM 321.

PPTSS 156 picks up “days later” which would allow for the inclusion of the “Plot” storyline and MJ and Osborns are painting the new loft.

WOSM 56 has MJ first learning about the soap opera job, Peter is bruised from the Tombstone fight in PPTSS 155, references Aunt May’s misunderstood death, and Harry still calling about the upcoming move. All these issues must be included during the events of ASM 321.

WOSM 57 follows directly from #56 but still has MJ and Peter in the loft following PPTSS 156.

Let’s try this:

PPTSS @ 9/3
PPTSS 154 [Peter just sees Aunt May tired and worries, MJ has no hint at a job]
WOSM 55 [Pete and MJ still apartment hunting, no mention of Aunt May]
ASM 320 [MJ gets call from Harry to help move, issue concludes with Peter thinking Aunt May has 6
months to live, Assassin Nation Plot begins]
ASM 321 (1 – 9:3) [section concludes with MJ, Peter, and Aunt May in kitchen]
PPTSS 155 (3:6 - 7) – FB [alternate series of events which leads to PPTSS 155]
PPTSS 155 [MJ still believes Aunt May has 6 months to live]
ASM 321 (9:4 – 11:1) [It must be assumed that MJ, Peter, and Aunt May reunite in the kitchen after the
conclusion of PPTSS 155 to reveal the misunderstanding of Aunt May’s impending
death.]
WOSM 56 (1 – 14) [MJ finds out about the soap opera acting job]
ASM 321 (11:2 – 5) [MJ tells Peter about the soap opera job]
WOSM 56 (15 – 30) [Peter bruised after the Tombstone fight in #155, Harry calls again about helping to
move]
WOSM 57 (1 – 6) [story continues from #56]
ASM 321 (13 – 30) [MJ and Peter help the Osborns move and are offered the upstairs loft for their own,
continuation of the “Plot”]
ASM 322 [Spider-Man leaves the country, MJ auditions for soap opera job]
ASM 323 [“Plot” continues]
ASM 324 [“Plot” continues]

ASM 325 [“Plot” continues]
WOSM @ 5 [Spider-Man’s involvement at the end of “Atlantis Attacks”]
PPTSS 156 [“days later” from the conclusion of #155, MJ paints the new loft]
WOSM 57 (8 – 30) [MJ unpacks in the new loft]
PPTSS 157


These are the events and obviously they will affect a lot of character listings other than Spider-Man, but I’ll get to them later.
