The Timeline Guy
Updated for Ultimate Comics X-Men #14 and Spider-Men #3.
Definitely takes place after the last USM arc based on Miles' reaction to seeing the Prowler illusion. What's unsure is when both series takes place in the overall chronological sequence with comparison to UXM and Ultimates which depicts the entire world pretty much in the toilet. Another thing to note, Gwen and May were still rather comfortable in Paris when they found out about Miles. My understanding is that the Children wiped out Western Europe and took over, and this includes France.Like i said, i would place Spider-Men straight after the Prowler arc in Ultimate Spider-Man.
cmdrjanjalani said:Are you sure Spider-Men takes place after the last Ultimates arc? Nick Fury and the Ultimates are still in their status quo sans Captain America. SHIELD is most likely still under Flumm's control as Fury is MIA after the last arc and they captured Black Widow, Hawkeye and Falcon. This is definitely before all the crazy stuff happened in the U.S. I think USM takes place earlier than the latter half of Ultimates and UXM.
Seems that Ultimate Power should end up coming before Xavier gets kidnapped by Cable and before Spider-man and MJ get back together. Why is it after all that stuff?
Captain Canuck said:It fits perfectly with usm if you place it after Peter and MJ get back together but before kitty finds out. I assumed Peter was trying to figure out how to tell kitty when they got distracted by the attack on the Baxter building.
I actually joined this site 4 years ago to tell DiB that. Haha
Should Ultimate Iron Man and Ultimate Iron Man II really be in gray? They go over that origin of Tony Stark in the March on Ultimatum Saga as if it were part of the normal universe. Also several times his distributed neural mass is referenced like in Ultimate Human lending further credence to it being canon to the Ultimate universe itself.
Also why list the new Spider-Man as Vol2 when it has a proper title of its own "Ultimate Comics: All-New Spider-Man"?
Also looks like Spider-Men will take place after Divided We Fall (assumingly United We Stand as well). USM issue 13 picks up right after issue 12, so we can safely say that the Ultimates will be intact and Fury will be leading SHIELD again by the end of that event, or otherwise the continuity will make zero sense. Based also on this, the last arc of USM (basically the part that concentrates on Prowler and Scorpion) was running in parallel with Ultimates apparently.
There's nothing wrong with the continuity. I see what you mean because of the whole Spider-Man is a murderer thing, but that is less of s screw up in terms of continuity then the whole Fury still being in charge situation.
