Marvel Comics Timeline: Classic Origins

What’s in the Marvel Comics Timeline: Classic Origins?


Welcome to the second chapter of the Marvel Comics timeline. This section covers all of the early origins for popular Marvel characters from the Golden/Silver ages of Marvel. This includes comics focusing on characters like Captain America, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, and members of the Avengers. For the full list of timelines in the Marvel 616 timeline, visit our main Marvel Multiverse page.

Only comics make up this timeline. Since the contents are not multi-media like many of our other timelines, there is no color coding found here. This timeline also does not include the publication year or author. We do this because Marvel releases multiple re-releases across several years, and you will often find multiple authors per trade paperback. For that reason, we do not include them. However, if you’re looking for an easy-to-follow list of books in the Marvel 616 timeline, this is the best place to start. We hope you enjoy!

Be sure to let us know if you see anything that needs to be added, changed, or deleted from the timeline. You can do so on our contact page, or by contacting Jason through Twitter.
