My MCU+ Timeline (+ X + FF)

The following list of news headlines only includes events as the general public on “Earth-19444” would understand, which may or may not be accurate to events shown in the movies. For example, many people don’t realize the “elemental giants” of 2024 were faked or that Mysterio was a fraud (see the “we beleive Mysterio” brick). Minor events happening to individuals also don’t rise to general knowledge unless likely reported in mass media (so Frank Castle’s trial yes, young Matt Murdock getting blinded no.)

Outside the official MCU, this list lumps in the revised timeline that erased Bryan Singer’s X-Men movies (X-Men and X2) with the updated events extending from Matthew Vaughn’s X-Men: First Class and time travel consequences by Wolverine in X-Men: Days of Future Past and Wade Wilson in Deadpool 2. Backstory events from Logan are also included.

This timeline also includes events from David S. Goyer’s original Blade film trilogy and Tim Story’s two Fantastic Four movies, but NOT Josh Trank’s dour 2015 Fant4stic movie. The Netflix series (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist) are included, but the 2003 Daredevil and 2005 Elektra movies are not part of this universe. The “canon” here includes some parts of the series that appeared on ABC (Peggy Carter, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Inhumans), as well as the Blade and Ghost Rider films.

Lastly, commonly known events of interstellar or cosmic origin (Thanos attacking Knowhere and Xandar, the destruction of Ego, D’Bari agents pursuing the Phoenix energy force to Earth) are omitted as outside the purview of ordinary Earthlings.

The public generally believes the giant celestial in the Indian Ocean died while accidentally teleporting into Earth from another dimension, not that it has been dormant within the Earth for millenia. (The Eternals remain unknown.)

In the United States, S.H.I.E.L.D. has largely been dismantled, but S.W.O.R.D. – the Sentient Weapon Observation and Response Division – is extremely active following 2018’s “Blip,” 2023’s “hex” incident in New Jersey, and President Ritson’s 2025 announcement of Skrull infiltrators active on Earth. The Strategic Aerospace Biophysics and Exolinguistic Response (S.A.B.E.R.) space station has also become operational, staffed by humans and alien species such as Skrulls and Asgardians.

In other espionage fields, Valentina Allegra de Fontaine is putting together her Thunderbolts team, and M.I.6’s Sonya Falsworth has allied herself with G’iah and the remaining Skrulls on Earth.

In the corporate world, Roxxon Corp. continues to thrive, as does Stark Industries and its troubled rival Hammer Industries. Transigen Corp. is under investigation for illegal genetic research involving human DNA and cloning. Rand Enterprises has lost most of its influence. Von Doom Industries is long since defunct, but Dr. Doom continues to pursue super-science back in Latavia. (Oscorp and Alchemax do not exist in this timeline.) Advanced Idea Mechanics (A.I.M.) operates at the fringes of industry, dodging regulation and oversight as best as it can.


The Fantastic Four are experimenting with multiversal travel, having begun tracking evidence of universe crossovers and timeline manipulation: the T.V.A.’s retcon of Loki in 2018, Doctor Strange’s spell and America Chavez’s visits in 2024, and various meddling by the Chronicoms. (Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Loki: Season One, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.: Season Seven)

The Avengers are no longer a formal group, though in a crisis it would be possible to enlist Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man, the Wasp, Captain America Sam Wilson, and possibly a few other superheroes back into united action.

Sorcerer Supreme Wong is rebuilding Kamar-Taj and training replacement sorcerers, including America Chavez. Doctor Strange remains keeper of New York’s sanctum.

The X-Men no longer exist, and super-powered mutants in the United States and Europe have become rare. However, a small group of young mutants have founded a new sanctuary for themselves in northern Canada, and Magneto’s small Genosha island still exists. (Magneto’s attacks on New York from the X-Men movie never happened due to time travel revisions.) Despite Wolverine’s comment that “all the X-Men are dead,” a few might still survive in isolation. (X-Men: Days of Future Past, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, Logan)

Although U.S. President Ritson essentially declared war on offworld-born species, other places on Earth – notably New Asgard in Norway – continue to welcome extraterrestials looking to resettle on Earth.


The Watchdogs remain a right-wing domestic terrorist group, targeting all manner of super-powered “mutants, Inhumans, aliens, freaks and other threats to pure strain humans.” The Indian Ocean celestial and President Ritson’s rhetoric fuel public fears that play into Watchdog propaganda.

HYDRA is a shadow of its former self, having lost its Inhuman hive-mind leader and several senior masterminds who vanished between The Blip and The Return.

The Ten Rings remain active as a criminal syndicate, sometimes with and sometimes against The Power Broker’s network out of Madripoor.
