Guys, today I'm free, so I Will continue with this.
no, the likes of Strange, JJJ and Sheldon are subject to sliding time, they would have once been born in those years but they have slid forward tooWow, where to start, First of all, I know that marvel characters don't know they are affected by marvel time. The fact that they reference a fictional War Is true, but remain the fact that some character have tis with momento before the modern Age. Nick Fury Is not the best example, cos he has some sort of serum, that makes him younger. I'm talking about other characters Like Doctor strange which Is canonically Born in the 1910s (1911 if I Remember correctly) and became a Doctor in 1960. J. Jonah Jameson appearing as a reporter in 1939, this extend to Phil Sheldon too, etc.... what you sayed in the third pharagraph Is what I meant, and I am using a ratio of 1:3 only for the First year, if you look closely, all the others have their normal 1:4 ratio. That order Is One of the order I'm using for reference. Also It remains the fact that a lot of authors try to use real dates and reference events, which Is something they shouldn't do in this kind of universe if the sliding timeline Is 100% the true vision (another reference, yay!).
https://marvel.fandom.com/wiki/Stephen_Strange_(Earth-616)?so=search Literally Strange has fixed dates in his First part of his biographies.no, the likes of Strange, JJJ and Sheldon are subject to sliding time, they would have once been born in those years but they have slid forward too
i dont really get how its so hard to understand that fixed dates are completely irrelevant, even the wikia entry on sliding time is pretty clear as to how utterly meaningless topical references are in the sliding timeline, they arent to be taken as black and white and should be swapped out for a more fitting contemporary reference to whenever the time has compressed to. a good key is to take the referenced year, work out how many years that is before the publication date in the featured issue and then just place it as x years before Y1 or whatever, anything else is just making your timeline broken before you've even startedFirst officially referenced in 2005's Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Alternate Universes 2005 #1, the "sliding timescale" is an attempt to quantify the passage of time in Earth-616 (the Prime Marvel Universe, where all mainstream stories take place) so that characters do not age...marvel.fandom.com
the only times fixed dates should be taken seriously is for ageless characters like Fury or Logan
also Ross's Marvels series has never been 616 canon, they just canonised elements of it like Sheldon
Do you know what Is the comic that stated that date?Daredevil's origin is stated as 1950 (Matt is 8 years old). Obviously the sliding pushes these events forward in time, but in 1964 this was the canon date. Hmm... I wonder if thus should incorporate a backwards sliding timeline too? Like, you have 1950 (fixed point) the you have sliding timeline negative years. So, Daredevil's origin would be "Year -14", I guess.
1964 would be the 2nd year. So if he was 22, you would have to assume he's 35 or 36 right now.Daredevil's origin is stated as 1950 (Matt is 8 years old).
