This is the time line for the Marvel Iron Age. There is still room for improvement on this and it makes it easier to look up when and where things happened. Also is a map, also not set in stone but a nice guideline

Time Line Of The Iron Age

2012: The dawn of the Heroic Age

2017: Tony Stark & Reed Richards build a prototype armour for the San Francisco PD. This test unit becomes the inspiration for the Iron Army

2022: US army uses Sentinels covertly in Afghanistan. Death of Tony Stark.

2033: Spider-Man is revealed to be Peter Parker and is killed on television by Iron Army soldiers

2038: Economic crash of the European Union causes widespread panic. Latveria begins absorbing nearby countries some willingly and some not. Britain and Ireland begin open hostilities which turns into declarations of war

good job, I think there are a few details missing but I can't think of them at the moment but this is very helpful

@batkevin74: I'm thinking the April Incident and the last appearance of Absorbing Man should maybe be swapped. I think in a few stories people have said that they started hunting mutants before the last super-villains were dealt with.

not a big issue but the map is a bit difficult to read

@batkevin74: @joshmightbe: @batkevin74:

Wow, i have seen comics with the header stating Iron Age but i was never sure what it had to do with the current major arcs going on. Are these in TPB or even hardcover? This sounds awesome

@DEGRAAF: Actually it's just our fan-fics that we've been writing for the past few weeks. @joshmightbe came up with the concept, the rest of us chimed in some story points. Here's a collection of our stories so far: Marvel: Iron Age - Collected Stories
 
There was a series called 'Iron Age' but it was about Tony Stark traveling through time trying to prevent the return of the Phoenix Force that destroys the world.

@PrinceIMC: ah thanks. So far yours sounds pretty cool. I am definitely up for reading it

All things can be changed it was just cut and pasted from page 18 of our PM so I can edit things and add stuff. The map is a tad hard to read, I did it via word paint but if anyone wants a bigger version I can email it you (And none of the countries name are set except for New Latveria, Guatamala, Australia, Peruvador & United Argentine Penninsular)

@batkevin74: It is well put together and will be helpful the map was my only real issue but that's minor

@PrinceIMC: Swapped & edited :)

Ok we need to put the April incident before the super villain round up because the general consensus seems to be the mutant hunting started forst, and somewhere between the incident ans the last sighting of Absorbing Man we need to include Ultron's attack since it did lead to Ferrum gaining full control of America's defense

Nice job man! Thanks for putting this up.

#13 Posted by joshmightbe (24882 posts) - - Show Bio

Ignore my previous post, We need to see what is doing with the April incident to be sure where it fits on the time line

#14 Posted by batkevin74 (10608 posts) - - Show Bio

All things in this are pretty adaptable to change

When did that Ultron thing happen? And that Red Skull smashing? Erly on I guess. But a great world people, keep up the entertaining writings

#16 Posted by batkevin74 (10608 posts) - - Show Bio

Just so I can find this easier

#17 Posted by batkevin74 (10608 posts) - - Show Bio

Bumped so I can remember when stuff happened

Why is there a map at the bottom?

#19 Posted by joshmightbe (24882 posts) - - Show Bio

@TheCannon: Its supposed to be our world map, its hard to see I know but if you ask him I'm sure would email you a clearer copy

Okay. I was just curious.

@TheCannon: PM me your email and I can send you the map I've got on my computer. It's kinda small here but if you want a bigger one I can send it along to you, it's pretty much the world as we know it but some border changes, some shaved coastlines due to global warming/nuclear explosions and some renamed countries

Coolio. I'm just assuming the biggest part of the map is America :P

@batkevin74: I added a new area in the US which I referred to as the southern wastes, it stretches from the coast of south Carolina to slightly inside the Louisiana border

#28 Posted by batkevin74 (10608 posts) - - Show Bio

@joshmightbe: Sure, the actual details on the US are vague at best so I have no problems with a Southern Waste at all

#29 Posted by joshmightbe (24882 posts) - - Show Bio

@batkevin74: I needed a large relatively empty place where people wouldn't notice a lot of strange crap going on. Basically the area is the first of what will be a series of obstacles that keep them from rescuing Sam for the time being.
