  15. 15.0 15.1 15.2 15.3 15.4 15.5 15.6 In The Star-Spangled Man, Bucky Barnes says that his and Isaiah Bradley's altercation was in 1951. Bradley later says that he was held in prison for "thirty years." In Truth, Bradley explains that during the Korean War, he was given the Super Soldier Serum, that he was the only survivor, and that he rescued his fellow soldiers before being sent imprisoned. Distributing these events evenly does not place the fight between Barnes and Bradley in 1951, so it must be placed independently of the other two, in approximately the middle of the year, July 2, 1951. Bradley and the other soldiers receiving the serum can then be approximated to between that fight and the beginning of the Korean War on June 25, 1950, since it is implied to have happened during the war, so approximately December 28, 1950. Bradley rescuing his fellow soldiers can then be taken to have occurred between the fight between him and Barnes and the end of the Korean War on July 27, 1953, so approximately July 14, 1952.
    In Truth, Bradley mentions that the people who had taken the serum began dying off before he rescued his men, so this can be approximated to the halfway point between receiving the serum and the rescue, so approximately October 6, 1951. Bradley also says in Truth that his superiors were planning to kill his team before he rescued them, and that "one night" after he overheard the plan, Bradley broke out. Bradley overhearing the plan can be approximated to three days prior, so that both Bradley's wording works and so that Bradley isn't waiting long enough that his superiors had already enacted their plan. After describing the rescue, Bradley says, "It wasn't long before it was only me left." Since it is implied that Bradley was imprisoned shortly after he rescued the soldiers, Bradley can be taken to have been sent to prison a week later, with the rest of the serum users dying during that week. His imprisonment can then be taken to have happened on July 21, 1952, and the deaths in the middle of the time between the rescue and his imprisonment, so approximately July 17, 1952.

Brown's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from his scenes, considering that T'Chaka is older than N'Jobu. The calculations for these dates and the dates that flashbacks are set are all relative to each other, and can be found in detail here.

  50. In AKA Start at the Beginning, AKA Freak Accident, and AKA Sole Survivor, it is shown that Brian Jones was born in "1954" and died aged "46" in "2000". His date of death is April 13, 2000 (see 2000s references), meaning he was born between January 1, 1954 and April 13, 1954, making his date of birth approximately February 1954.

  60. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Yondu says that he was sold into slavery as an infant and then spent 20 years in slavery, before Stakar Ogord freed him. Based on Michael Rooker's age when filming both movies, then working back from when both movies are set and taking an average, Yondu would have been born around January 1955, and so would have been sold around February 15th. 20 years later, he would have been freed around April 2, 1975. This fits with him then spending many years collecting Ego's children from 1975 up to any point between 1979 and 1988, then the final one, Quill, in 1988.

  65. In Alien Commies from the Future!, Biff insists that he had seen a flying saucer the previous night. With this being said in the early hours of July 21, 1955, Biff would have seen the flying saucer in the night of July 19, 1955.
  66. 66.0 66.1 66.2 66.3 66.4 66.5 66.6 In Out of the Past, it is explicitly said to be "July 22nd, 1955", making the events of Alien Commies from the Future! July 21, 1955.

  68. In Wig Out, it is said that Jackson Dillard was "8 years older" than Mariah. With Mariah's date of birth approximated to December 9, 1963 (see 1960s references), it can be approximated that Jackson was born around December 9, 1955, if not more generally meaning "1963 - 1955 = 8" then any point in 1955, approximating as mid-1985. Putting more weight in the specific December 9, 1955 but considering the possibility of generally 1955, a weighted average gives roughly October 17, 1955 - or, less specifically, October 1955 for Jackson's date of birth.

Her apparent date of death is April 13, 2000 (see 2000s references), meaning she was born between January 1, 1956 and April 13, 1956, making her date of birth approximately February 1954.
  74. Based on Dikran Tulaine's age at the time of filming Nakazat, working back from the setting of the episode, Nikolai Poloznev would have been born around June 1956.
