Alternate Timelines

The concept of alternate timelines is very confusing at first. The basic assumption is that there are millions of worlds, universes and Earths existing parallel to each other. Every decision results in possible different outcomes that again affect other events, and so the histories change. Some of these alternate worlds and timelines look pretty much the same as the main Marvel Universe, but others are completely different. People long dead in the Marvel Universe might still have alive counterparts and vice versa; some of these other Earths are even changed to such a degree that they are no longer recognizable.

In our timelines section we try to keep track of recurring alternate scenarios. Some of them, like the Age of Apocalypse, or Days of Future Past, are very popular and have been referred to in many issues, but there are plenty of other timelines listed as short entries, since they were only shown a few times.

If you find any errors that need correcting, or if you would like to contribute to this section get in touch.
