Spider-Man (616) 52nd Anniversary Sliding Timeline

A 7000 word Spider-Man timeline that celebrates 52 years of Spider-Man history and consolidates it into 13 years as per Marvel Time. I didn't simply divide by 4 and call it a day though, went back over hundreds of comics in order to place things as precisely as possible in their place using Spider-Man milestones.

Hey there, True Believers. You might remember a couple of months ago, I released the X-Men Film Timeline. (http://www.reddit.com/r/movies/comments/26vlql/xmen_visual_timeline_oc/) In celebration of Spider-
Man’s 52nd Anniversary, I decided to build a timeline to document Peter Parker’s 14 years as Spider
Man. I’ve spent the last few months
reading literally hundreds and hundreds of comics so that I could make this as accurate as possible. Unfortunately, this is going to be a wall of plain text before I get the opportunity to do something on imgur. I kept on finding more and more events to include in the timeline, and it just sort of spiraled out of control! I will lay out some of my headcanon before hand, and hopefully you all enjoy! Peter Parker/Spider-
Man’s birthday will be considered August 10th, 1985 (for the
purposes of the timeline). His debut, Amazing Fantasy #15, was released on August 10th, 1962. This will give us a fram
e of reference for Peter’s age, and from the details we have been given, it’s very likely Peter has a summer birthday. Amazing
Spider-Man (Vol 1
 3) will be the main reference for details as the longest running Spider-Man title. Midtown High is a fictio
nal high school, but it’s definitely located in Forest Hills,
Queens, New York. With this in mind, the school calendars for Bayside High and Forest Hills High let school out at the end of June and start back up in September. I will also take this time to explain that it is a fact that Empire State University is based off of New York University. Keeping that in mind, the Spring Semester usually ends in May, graduations in May, and Fall Semester beginning in September. This acted as a guideline for where certain issues took place. Now, to get us started off, Amazing Spider-Man Vol 3 #1 (published June 2014, and taking place during Late April 2014) establishes that Peter has been Spidey for 13 years. While this fits well with Marvel Time (where every 4 years in the real world equals 1 year in comics, so 13 x 4 = 52. 1952 + 52 + 2014), it causes problems with
Spidey’s earlier years because of milestones such as graduations. So, the way we fix
it is that we use Marvel Time for the later years the best we can, while also staying true to the fixed points in Spider-
Man’s life.
Here we go. - Anthony L.
