"This isn't about fighting wars. It's about ending them."
Ego leaves Earth one final time, realizing he has to return to his planet, and has nearly been gone too long. He knows that if he were to return for a fourth time, he would choose never to leave, which he cannot allow of himself, and reluctantly plants a cancerous tumor in Meredith to kill her in approximately 8 years' time.
The early 1980s recession, instigated by HYDRA, draws to a close.
After he was experimented on and held in prison for thirty years, a nurse takes pity on Isaiah Bradley. She falsifies documents which say that he is dead and gives him a box of the letters that Bradley's wife tried to send him until she was told that he was dead. Bradley breaks out of the facility where he was being held.
Young nun novitiate Maggie Grace, 3 weeks from taking her vows, goes with two friends to watch a boxing match in Fogwell's Gym, wanting to have some fun before becoming a nun. As a round of the fight ends, one of the fighters, Jack Murdock, requests for her to get him some water and wipe his face during the break. She steps up to help him, despite her friends wanting them to leave, and he explains he trusted her not to put anything in his drink, being a nun.
In the break between rounds, Grace helps Murdock, giving him his water and wiping his face. She starts to become romantically interested in him.
As he walks, he overhears his mother Gwen McIver, arguing with Mabel and Peter Stokes. Gwen asks for her fair share of her late husband, Quincy's estate. The Stokes' lawyer for the case, Benjamin Donovan, says they owe nothing. Gwen's lawyer reveals that he has the signed napkin from Quincy's agreement with Buggy Stokes for a 50:50 split of everything. When Gwen's lawyer requests 50% of the profits, the Stokeses laugh. Mariah Stokes finds John eavesdropping and tells him to get her something to drink.
Destruction of McIver Residence: The Stokes family throw Molotov cocktails of Bushmaster Rum into Gwen and John McIver's home. Gwen ushers John to safety, but she does not make it herself, and he is left to watch as his house burns, his mother inside. Mabel Stokes walks past throws the paperwork from the deal into the fire, and tells John that she told his mother she would not deal with any lawyers, walking away.
Since the moment he was born, Kevin Thompson quickly developed a serious brain malfunction which required a great deal of treatment. Thompson spent much of his young life going through seemingly never ending tests alongside extremely painful treatments which included injections into the back of his neck by his parents Albert and Louise. On June 29, 1985, his parents filmed one of several videos of the results of their test on him.
A girl named Tilda is born to Mariah Stokes, the father being Mariah's uncle Peter Stokes, having raped his niece. Tilda is given to the Johnson family and given the surname Johnson, but still sees her mother. Mariah would later lie to her daughter about when she was born, claiming she was not born for some years after so as to hide her real father's identity.
Mariah Stokes and Jackson Dillard agree to a mutually beneficial fake relationship, as it helps Stokes give her daughter, Tilda, a proper father figure, and makes it seem to Dillard's homophobic parents that he is not homosexual, which he in fact is. Dillard's parents are so pleased that he is seemingly heterosexual that they do not even mind that Stokes already has a child with another man.
Mariah Stokes and Jackson Dillard get engaged, furthering their mutually beneficial fake relationship. Dillard can further convince his family he is not homosexual, and Stokes is eager to take the Dillard surname and get away from her family legacy, as well as wanting her daughter, Tilda, to think Jackson is her father, rather than learn she was born of her own great uncle raping her mother.
Cornell Stokes plays the keyboard, and Peter Stokes states that he is talented and should go to a top school. Mama Mabel is unimpressed, however, saying he should keep it down, as Mariah Stokes is trying to study to be a lawyer. Pop arrives to pick up Cornell, with a young man called Donnie. When Mabel notices Donnie, she tells Pop to go so she can deal with him. She angrily asks him why he sold drugs for her, when drugs were always the thing that the Stokes family stayed away from. Mabel cuts off his finger, then says that it is time for Cornell to learn their ways, having him follow Pete as they take Donnie out to kill him. Cornell then returns, shocked at the murder, and Mabel clasps his bloodied hands.
Anansi and McIver's aunt, Ingrid, rush to help McIver. They take him to a bushwoman, who uses Nightshade to help him. The process is excruciating for McIver, but the plant helps his body push out the bullet shrapnel and hardens his skin, leading to his recovery.
Infiltration into East Berlin: Pym begins his mission in Berlin using his Ant-Man Suit. Having shrunken down to about the size of an ant, Pym is able to easily break into the facility. Unfortunately, a guard dog finds Pym. Pym comes up with an immediate plan that helps him escape the dog. He soon finds a flying ant and rides on it in order to find the radicals more easily. All he finds though are the blueprints for a HYDRA weapon. He soon hears screams and follows them to find HYDRA operatives testing on a man. In order to stop the tests, Hank jumps onto the shoulders of one of the soldiers and makes him think he is going insane by speaking into his ear. Pym then causes a small explosion in the lab, startling all who were present. He also frees the prisoner and defeats all the soldiers in the room.
Hank Pym, using his Ant-Man Suit and Janet van Dyne in her Wasp Suit, try to stop a Soviet ICBM from hitting the United States. After finding no way to disarm the missile, Janet turns her suit's regulator off to make herself small enough to enter the missile. Janet managed to turn the missile off, at the cost of shrinking indefinitely into the Quantum Realm, supposedly leading to her death. Due to the loss of Janet, Pym stored his suit in his basement vault in the Pym Residence, and sends his daughter Hope off to boarding school. This causes a strain in their relationship.
After Kevin Thompson uses his powers to control his mother Louise and make her burn her own face with an iron, she and her husband Albert leave their home in England, forced to abandon their 10-year-old son for the safety of all three involved.
T'Challa tells his father, T'Chaka that he wants to explore the world, but T'Chaka insists that it has nothing to offer but violence. T'Challa insists on searching for more, and T'Chaka explains that T'Challa is an explorer and that he would only find destruction of pain from people who do not understand Wakandan way of life.
During training for the United States Air Force, Carol Danvers partakes in an exercise wherein she has to jump from one rope to another and catch onto it. She is taunted by her male colleagues, who say she does not have the strength and will end up killing herself.
Despite her best attempt, Danvers does not manage the jump and falls to the dirt below. The other trainees laugh, with one standing over her and saying they will never let her fly.
Refusing to let herself be humiliated, she picks herself up to stand up to the other trainees.
Carol Danvers sits in Pancho's Bar when one of her colleagues from the Air Force approaches her and belittles her, saying that being a pilot is for men. Danvers ignores his attempt to hurt her.
Men claiming to be S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, but who were in truth members of HYDRA, go to China to Calvin Johnson's clinic and demand that Jiaying be handed over. Johnson and Jiaying resist, but their efforts are in vain, as she is kidnapped nonetheless. He then leaves his daughter Daisy among people he trusts, and sets off to search for his beloved wife.
In this base, HYDRA is holding the elders of a Chinese village in the Hunan Province, including Jiaying, whom Reinhardt recognizes as the same woman he wanted to experiment on 44 years earlier. After noticing Jiaying had not aged in all these years, he experiments on her body, trying to discover what made her special. In the process, Jiaying is supposedly killed. After the experiments, he tells his men to dispose of her corpse. With the results of the experiments, he turns his body back to how it was in 1945. Reinhardt changes his name to Daniel Whitehall and loses his German accent.
Calvin Johnson travels to Austria in search of his wife, Jiaying. He finds her body in a forest. Johnson refuses to allow his beloved wife to die and puts her body back together by using his medical skills.
In an attempt to find his daughter, Calvin Johnson comes across a gifted individual, Wendell Levi. With Levi, Johnson was able to look at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Index, but could not find Daisy on it. With all his attempts failed, Johnson returns to his wife.
Carol Danvers and 5-year-old Monica Rambeau look at the stars together. Maria calls them in to eat, and Danvers plays with Monica, pretending she's a pilot and saying to prepare to take off. Calling her Lieutenant Trouble, she picks up Monica and carries her, allowing Monica to pretend she is flying.
Early in the morning, Carol Danvers talks to Dr. Wendy Lawson at Edwards Air Force Base. Lawson points out that her "cat", Goose, likes Danvers, and says she did not sleep in the night, too absorbed with her work that needed to be done. She notes the wonderful view, though Danvers points out she prefers the view when flying.
Carol Danvers steps out to do a test flight for Dr. Lawson. Maria Rambeau joins her and the duo agree they are ready to show the other, male pilots that they are more than good enough. Danvers reminds Rambeau of their motto to always go "higher, further, faster", and they get into their respective planes, Rambeau sporting the call-sign "Photon" and Danvers "Avenger".
The two women each fly their jet planes for the test.
Hank Pym resigns from S.H.I.E.L.D., after discovering that the organization attempted to replicate his technology.
Carol Danvers does a test flight with Dr. Wendy Lawson in the back. Lawson gives her coordinates to fly to her "laboratory", which Danvers does not understand. As they fly, a ship appears behind them and starts firing at their jet.
Lawson explains that their attackers want her and her work, saying she should never have brought Danvers along. Danvers expertly maneuvers the jet to avoid the attackers and manages to slip around them and get behind. However, as she lines up a shot, the attackers fire backwards and the jet begins to fail.
As Danvers crash-lands, she does her best to lessen the impact. With the jet destroyed, she climbs out and checks on Lawson, who is bleeding blue blood.
Lawson tells Danvers she has to destroy the jet before the attackers get to them. She admits that while their work strives to end wars, the wars are bigger than just Earth - she is really called Mar-Vell, and comes from a planet called Hala.
Mar-Vell implores Danvers to remember the coordinates, saying she has to save "them" without her. As Danvers asks who, Mar-Vell goes to shoot the jet's engine, but is shot in the chest.
Danvers grabs a gun as a figure, Yon-Rogg, steps out from the dust clouds and asks where the energy core is. Trusting Mar-Vell, Danvers takes it upon herself to destroy the energy core by her side and shoots it. As the core blows, the energy it contained, which had come from the Tesseract, imbues itself in Danvers, leaving her unconscious and teeming with power.
Minn-Erva arrives to help Yon-Rogg and fire, but he tells her not to. Walking over to Danvers, he finds half of her broken dog tag, saying the latter half of her surname "vers", and sees the power coursing through her. He decides they will take her with them back to Hala.
Yon-Rogg gives Carol Danvers a blood transfusion using his Kree blood. Knowing Danvers does not remember her past, the Kree put a Photon Inhibitor in her neck and decide to claim the device in her neck is a gift they have given her that in fact provides her with the powers, unique among Kree. They choose to train her for Starforce as "Vers", and utilize her powers in their war against the Skrulls.
Eight-year-old Krista Dumont finds an injured bird in her backyard and assumes it hit one of the house's windows. She shows the bird to her father, who tells her that the bird is too injured to be saved. Upset by this, Dumont puts the bird in a shoebox and takes it into her bedroom. She feeds it water from an eyedropper and talks to the bird, beginning to nurse it back to health.
Dumont's bird, having been nursed fully back to health, flies away. Dumont becomes inspired to help people.
↑Jay Klaitz began high school in Florida in 1991, meaning he was born between September 2, 1979 and September 1, 1980 - approximately March 2-3, 1980. He only appears alive in AKA Start at the Beginning, the middle of filming for which was approximately April 9-10, 2017, meaning he was approximately 13,552 days old. The average date of Whizzer's scenes is April 25, 2017, which, working back 13,552 days, would make his date of birth roughly March 1980.
↑ 8.08.18.28.3In Guardians of the Galaxy, it is shown that the Kidnapping of Peter Quill was "1988," and then the Battle of Morag was "26 years later." The Battle of Morag is dated as August 1, 2014, ideally putting the Kidnapping of Peter Quill around August 1, 1988. In Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, it is shown that Ego and Meredith spent a day together in "1980," and then the Battle on Sovereign was "34 years later." The Battle on Sovereign is dated as October 17, 2014, ideally putting this scene around October 17, 1980. However, Quill is at least 8 years old at his kidnapping, plus realistically at least two weeks to keep his mother's death clear from his birthday. At a realistic maximum, Meredith Quill is 8 weeks pregnant in the 1980 scene, putting at least 30 weeks between that scene and Peter's birth. If the 1980 scene were October 17th, the earliest Peter could be born is May 15, 1981. If the 1988 scene were August 1st, the latest Peter could be born is July 18, 1980. The average of these two dates is December 15, 1980, putting the date of the 1980 scene as May 19th, and the 1988 scene as December 29th. Peter's clothing at his kidnapping indicates the 1988 scene should not be any earlier than early-to-mid-November. So with that at the latest date of November 10, 1988, this would put Peter's birthday around October 27, 1980, and the 1980 scene at March 31, 1980. This is all somewhat corroborated by James Gunn in a Twitter post.
↑In You Know My Steez, a flashback is shown of Willis training Carl at boxing. In the background is a notice about an event coming up on "Friday November 15" (which would be 1996) and then "Monday 6-10 January" (1997), placing this around early November 1996. It is shown in Take It Personal that in May of whichever year (it refers to the car being a "1993" model, so at least 1994 or 1995 to refer to it as such), when Willis was 18 and Carl was 17, they stole a 1993 corvette. It can be assumed, considering the fact that the actors already look older than 16 and 18 in the November 1996 flashback and Mike Colter's age at the times of filming suggesting Luke would have turned 17 around the early 1990s, as well as the way the brothers' story is told, it can be assumed that they stole the car in the first May after the November 1996 flashback, May 1997. In Take It Personal, Luke says, "He was 2 years older than me," and in Now You're Mine, Willis says, "And everything was good until the preacher's wife, 2 years later, had a baby boy." With the paper saying they are 17 and 18 in May 1997, it can be assumed that they are about 1 year and 10 months apart in age, with Carl having just turned 17 and Willis about to turn 19, placing their dates of birth in April 1980 and June 1978 respectively.
↑Based on a weighted calculation from Chadwick Boseman's age at the time of filming Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther, and Avengers: Infinity War and working back from his scenes, and from Ashton Tyler's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from his scenes. 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.
↑In Code of the Streets, Pop says that he last saw Reva Connors, until 2014, when he was "5". With her date of birth approximated to February 1975 (see 1970s references), specifically February 28, 1975, the middle of Connors' time as a 5-year-old (as an approximation for when she last saw Pop) would be August 28, 1980.
↑In The Basement, it is said that Ridenhour and Dillard were in a relationship when Ridenhour was in "ninth, tenth, and eleventh" grade. With Ridenhour's date of birth approximated to January 1964 (see 1960s references), by the New York system, he would be in ninth grade from early September 1980 to late June 1981. Approximating when they broke up by using the middle of the school year, they would have broken up around approximately January 28, 1981.
↑Based on Floriana Lima's age at the time of filming The Punisher: Season 2, working back from the setting of the season, Krista Dumont would have been born around March 1981.
↑Based on a weighted calculation from Lupita Nyong'o's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from her scenes, and from Lidya Jewett's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from her deleted scene. 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.
↑In Black Panther, it is shown that T'Chaka's reign lasted 35 years. With his death dated to June 22, 2016 (see references on 2016), taking into account the possibility of the simple math of "2016 - 1981 = 35" as well, a weighted average for 35 years prior gives approximately June 25, 1981.
↑In Kandahar, Micro says to Castle, "Happy birthday, Frank. It's the 15th. Happy birthday." 1½ days later, in Resupply, Curtis specifies that it is "November." Therefore, Castle's birthday is November 15th. In a promotional image for the first season is revealed that Castle is 35 years old, and the series started in 2016 chronologically (2016-35 = 1981). So, Castle was born on November 15, 1981.
↑In The Star-Spangled Man and Truth, it is said that Isaiah Bradley was held in prison for "thirty years" after his imprisonment in 1952. Since Bradley was broken out of prison rather than released, this does not necessarily refer to "exactly thirty years," but could also refer to "three decades later," so in the 1980s, or "during the thirtieth year after," so during 1982. A weighted calculation would place his escape on approximately November 20, 1982.
↑ 83.083.183.283.383.483.583.683.783.883.9Through a series of calculations, taking into account actor ages working back from present events and flashback settings, and evidence from Luke Cage, it can be found that Nandi Tyler was born around April 1983, Misty Knight was born around April 1984 (fitting with her being said in Wig Out to have been 5 when Mike Tyson first lost on February 11, 1990, and with it being said in Straighten It Out that Tyler was the school year above Misty Knight), the "mid 80's [sic]" The Creator flashbacks are set around February 11, 1985, Tilda Johnson was born around August 1985 (fitting with it being said in For Pete's Sake that she was 3 at some point after Peter Stokes' death, dated to April 6, 1987 (see 1980s references)), Pop visiting Mama Mabel's and Cornell having to kill Donnie is set around January 13, 1987, the "two years later" The Creator flashbacks are set around March 18, 1987 (fitting as "two years later" after February 11, 1985 but before Peter Stokes' April 6, 1987 death), and Pop and his crew being photographed by Jamel Shabazz is set around February 14, 1988. The full calculations can be found here.
↑Based on a weighted calculation from Michael B. Jordan's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from his scenes, and from Seth Carr's age at the time of filming Black Panther and working back from his scenes. 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.
↑In Fifteen, Brooks Watten is shown to have been "17" when he died. With his death dated to June 2001 (see 2000s references), Watten would have been born between June 1983 and June 1984, so approximately December 1983. Josh Pafcheck was 25 at the time of filming, however, suggesting Watten was born earlier in that range, so his date of birth may ultimately be approximated to September 1983.
↑In Captain Marvel, Akira Akbar, who plays Rambeau in the main events (1995), is credited as "Monica Rambeau (11 Years Old)" (with this also externally confirmed), making Rambeau approximately 11.5. Akira Akbar herself was 11.6 years old during filming, suggesting Rambeau is slightly closer to 11.99 than 11.0. Overall, 1995 Rambeau's appearances would suggest she was born around December 1983. Azari Akbar, who plays Rambeau in flashbacks (late 1980s), is credited as "Monica Rambeau (5 Years Old)", making Rambeau approximately 5.5. Azari Akbar herself was 6.7 years old during filming, suggesting Rambeau is slightly closer to 5.99 than 5.0. Working forwards from December 1989, her appearances would then be around mid-1989. They cannot be later than June 21, 1989, with Danvers disappearing on June 22, 1989 (see 1980s references) and the appearances set before then. Two photos are shown of Azari Akbar's 5-year-old Monica Rambeau in the film: one from a Halloween, and one from a Christmas, both before Danvers' disappearance. So, the closest Halloween and Christmas to the ideal mid-1989 placement for Azari Akbar's appearances, while still being pre-June 22, 1989, are Halloween 1988 and Christmas 1988. With these then firmly placed, working back from Rambeau being roughly a little over 5.5, this would then suggest Rambeau was born around April 1983. Combined with the aforementioned evidence for around December 1983, taking a weighted calculation, Rambeau's date of birth can then overall be approximated to September 1983. The full details of the calculations may be found here.
↑ 98.098.1In Cold Steel, Sarah Lieberman says on November 28, 2016 that she has kissed no one other than David for "15 years", implying that her first kiss with David was 15 years ago, in 2001. David later says that their first kiss was in "junior year", implying they would have been born around 1985. However, Ebon Moss-Bachrach was 39 and Jaime Ray Newman was 38 at the time of filming The Punisher: Season 1, set in late 2016, suggesting they were born closer to 1977-1978. Overall, it can be calculated that they were born around February 1984, juniors 2000-2001, and first kissed around February 7, 2001. The details of the calculations can be found here.
↑ 107.0107.1107.2107.3107.4107.5107.6107.7It is said in Stick and The Perfect Game that Matt Murdock was "9" when he lost his sight. With that dated to May 12, 1994 (see 1990s references), he would have been born between May 13, 1984 and May 12, 1985. Him starting college is dated to Fall 2003 (see 2000s references), which would imply he was around 18 at the time, suggesting he was born between September 1, 1984 and August 31, 1985, so overall likely between September 1, 1984 and May 12, 1985. It is implied in Stick that Murdock is no longer 9 by his first meeting with Stick, as he refers to being blinded when he was 9. With that scene dated to January 12, 1995 (see 1990s references), this would mean he was 10 by then, so born no later than January 12, 1985, and thus likely between September 1, 1984 and January 12, 1985. In Revelations, Maggie Grace is said in flashbacks to be 3 weeks from taking her vows as a nun when she meets Jack Murdock, and in present day explains when she conceived Matt, she had not yet taken her vows. So, Grace becoming a nun must have been shortly after Matt's conception, about 9 months before his birth. This would mean she became a nun approximately between December 1983 and April 1984. She states in September 2017 (see 2017 references), in Resurrection, that she has been a nun for "30 years". So, while she must be rounding down whatever the case, April 1984 works best, and therefore an approximate early January 1985 date of birth for Matt Murdock. Assuming Murdock's 30th birthday must occur in January 2015 before the events of Daredevil: Season 1, the latest Murdock could have been born is January 8, 1985. Assuming his date of birth is around then, 267 days earlier (an average pregnancy from conception to birth) would put Jack Murdock and Maggie Grace sleeping together as around April 16, 1984. Assuming that this was later in the 3-week span between them meeting and Grace becoming a nun, rather than earlier, it can be estimated to around 2 days before her vows (not the day before, as she would likely mention that detail when saying it was before her vows, were that the case). So, Grace becoming a nun can be approximated to April 18, 1984, and her meeting Jack Murdock therefore March 28, 1984. With Murdock appearing to be roughly 3-4 months old in the scene showing Grace's post-partum depression, this is estimated to 3.5 months after his approximate date of birth, so April 23, 1985.
↑In Black Widow, an ultrasound image of Natasha Romanoff is shown. Romanoff is slightly bigger than a twelve-week old fetus. The average pregnancy lasts 280 days, and Romanoff can be taken to be roughly 12.5 weeks into her development in the ultrasound. The ultrasound can therefore be placed 194 days before Romanoff's December 3, 1984 date of birth (see other references), on May 24, 1984.
↑Based on weighted calculations from Zoe Saldana's age at the time of filming Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and Avengers: Infinity War working back from the dates each film is set, and Ariana Greenblatt's age at the time of filming Avengers: Infinity War working back from when the Massacre of the Zehoberei takes place. The Massacre of the Zehoberei's placement is also connected to these calculations, all explained here.
↑In Fifteen, Adam Cooper is shown to have been "18" when he died. With his death dated to December 6, 2002 (see 2000s references), Cooper would have been born between December 7, 1983 and December 6, 1984, so approximately June 1984.
↑In Front Toward Enemy, it is shown that Dinah Madani graduated in "2005", suggesting (by the New York schooling system) she was most likely born in 1984. Based on Amber Rose Revah's ages at the times of filming The Punisher: Season 1 and 2, working back from the settings of each season, Dinah Madani would have been born around May 1986. So, it can be approximated that she was born in the slightly later part of 1984 rather than earlier. A calculation would suggest around August 1984.
↑In All Souled Out, Cockroach Hamilton says he started fighting when he was "8". With his date of birth approximated to March 1976 (see 1970s references), specifically March 4, 1976, the middle of Hamilton's time as an 8-year-old (as an approximation for when he started fighting) would be September 2, 1984.
↑Using Deborah Ann Woll's ages at the times of filming Daredevil: Seasons 1 and 2, The Defenders: Season 1, The Punisher: Season 1, Daredevil: Season 3, and The Punisher: Season 2 and working back from the settings, Karen Page would have been born around February 1985. This partially informs the dating of the flashback events of Karen to March 2004 (see 2000s references), with it said to be her gap year, but at the same time other evidence also places it in March 2004, thus suggesting Page graduated high school in Spring 2003, making her most likely born between September 1984 and August 1985, so also around early 1985. On Marvel Television Live Auction Lot #368: Karen Page's New York Bulletin Press Badge and News Agency Identification, it is shown that Page is supposed to be "31" (even though the ID says male, it is intended to be hers) during the main events of Daredevil: Season 2 in October-November 2015 (see 2015 references), so likely born around the first half of 1984. Overall, a calculation gives approximately October 1984 for Page's date of birth.
↑In If It Ain't Rough, It Ain't Right, it is said that Shades and Comanche met when they were both "7". With Shades being born on May 11, 1977 (stated in Can't Front on Me) and Comanche's date of birth approximated to May 1977 (see 1970s references), specifically May 21, 1977, the period when they were both 7 would be May 21, 1984 to May 10, 1985. Approximating with the middle of this period, they likely met around November 14, 1984.
↑Leah Gibson was born on January 3, 1985, making her 11,860 days old at the middle of filming for Jessica Jones: Season 2 on June 24, 2017. The middle of the season is set on May 22, 2017, which, working back 11,860 days, would make her date of birth roughly December 1984.
↑In The Creator, it is said that Bushmaster and Sheldon met when they were "11". With both dates of birth approximated to June 1973 (see 1970s references), specifically June 16, 1973 for Sheldon and June 23, 1973 for Bushmaster, the time when they were both 11 would be June 23, 1984-June 15, 1985, so the middle of their shared time as 11-year-olds (as an approximation for when they met) would be December 19, 1984.
↑ 139.0139.1139.2139.3139.4139.5Throughout Loki, various alternate timelines are presented which were created as a result of time travel, with the histories of those timelines being identical until the arrival of the time travelers. It can therefore be taken that certain events after the arrival, which are unaffected by the intervention of the time travelers, happened in the main timeline of the MCU as well.
↑Based on Olli Haaskivi's age at the time of filming The Falcon and The Winter Soldier and working backward from the setting of his episode, Power Broker, considering his disappearance in the Snap for 5 years, 4 months, and 18 days, Wilfred Nagel would have been born in approximately May 1985.
↑Trish Walker is in the same New York school year as Jessica Jones. With Jones born in 1985 (see other references) and the New York school years being based on calendar year of birth, this means Walker would also be born in 1985, making her date of birth approximately mid-1985 (July 2, 1985). However, a calculation based on Rachael Taylor's age at the times of filming Jessica Jones: Season 1, The Defenders: Season 1, and Jessica Jones: Season 2 and working back from each season's timeline setting, then taking a weighted average, would place Walker's date of birth around March 1984. Since this is a little earlier than mid-1985 and Walker's date of birth is flexible within 1985, it can be assumed that she was born slightly earlier than the approximation of the middle of 1985, around June 1985.
↑ 144.0144.1In Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff is briefly shown as a baby. She appears to be approximately six months old. A weighted average would place this within the sixth month after she was born on December 24, 1984 (see other references), so on June 7, 1985.
↑In AKA Take a Bloody Number, it is shown that the medical bills for Jessica following her family's car crash are from "04/13/00", meaning the crash was in April 2000, presumably leaving for an Easter holiday. In AKA You're a Winner!, it is shown that the least time the Jones family updated Jessica's height on the height chart was at "Jessica 14 yrs", and in AKA WWJD?, Kilgrave discusses how he returned everything to how the family left it on the day of the crash, and says, "Just imagine little 14-year-old you." With her being 14 in April 2000, this would mean she was born around October 1985.
↑In Fifteen, Jamie Baxter is shown to have been "18" when he died. With his death dated to June 8, 2004 (see 2000s references), Baxter would have been born between June 9, 1985 and June 8, 1986, so approximately December 1985.
↑In AKA The Double Half-Wappinger, it is said that when Sallinger killed Silva in April 2003 (see 2000s references), he was in "senior year". So, Sallinger's date of birth, by the New York school year cutoff system, would be in 1985. In AKA I Wish, Jessica Jones has a file for a "John Smith" among the Sallinger files, with a "12/12/1985" date of birth. Given it is part of Sallinger's files and matches his 1985 year of birth, it can be taken that the "John Smith" name is for an unidentified male subject and refers to Sallinger, making his date of birth December 12, 1985.
↑Brian 'Sene' Marc was born in February 1986, with the middle of filming for Luke Cage: Season 1 being December 2015. Chico's scenes are set in November 2015, so working back, he would have been born around January 1986. In Moment of Truth, Chico says, "[my father] walked out on me and moms when I was 9," placing this around July 1995.
↑Using Meredith Salenger's age at the time of filming No Good Deed, working back from the setting, Lily Ellison would have been born around January 1970. However, using Chris Carfizzi's age at the time of filming No Good Deed, working back from the setting, Jason Ellison would have been born around April 1975. Jason says Mitchell and Lily Ellison renewed their wedding vows when he was 8, but, using these ages, Lily would have only been around 13. So, Lily Ellison must have been born earlier than January 1970, and Jason later than April 1975. Adjusting so that Lily was at least 18, it can be calculated that Lily was born around January 1968 and Jason late January 1977, with the vows renewed around January 28, 1986, just after Lily turned 18 and before Jason turned 9. The details of the calculation may be found here.
↑ 163.0163.1In For Pete's Sake, Mariah Dillard reveals that her previous comment about only becoming pregnant with Tilda just before Jackson's death was a lie, and that as Tom Ridenhour commented in On and On, her age is also a lie. She reveals that Tilda was already born when she got together with Jackson, just that Jackson's parents did not care as they were delighted that he seemingly was not homosexual. She also reveals that she was engaged at the time of Peter Stokes' death. So, them entering into the relationship and getting engaged is between Tilda's date of birth, approximated to August 1985 (see other references), specifically August 20, 1985, and Peter Stokes' death on April 6, 1987 (see other references). Therefore, them entering into the relationship can be dated to approximately ⅓ between these dates: March 6, 1986, and them getting engaged can be dated to approximately ⅔ between these dates: September 20, 1986.
↑In Captain Marvel, a photo is shown of Carol Danvers with a drink after she "graduated". While this could be taken as graduating high school, Danvers looks to be at least in her 20s, and seems to have an alcoholic drink, which would make her at least 21 since she is in California. It can therefore be taken as graduating college, and since this is likely spring, at least 1986 (with Danvers' date of birth approximated to August 1964, see 1960s references). Using 1986, since this is already 4 years after finishing high school - plausible for finishing college, but any later years become decreasingly plausible. So, approximately May 1986.
↑In Danger Close, Marion James says on December 13, 2016 that she has worked for the country for "30 years". This would specifically suggest December 1986 (30 years before December 2016), if not generally (so approximately mid) 1986 (30 years before 2016), if not even more generally (so approximately mid) 1980s (30 years before the 2010s). Putting more weight in specifically December 1986 than mid-1986, and more weight in mid-1986 than the mid-1980s, it can be calculated that James began her work around August 30, 1986.
↑In The Mistress of All Agonies, Harold Meachum enters the passcode for a Rand Enterprises door, remembering it to be "Ward's birthday." He enters "091986", meaning Ward's birthday is 09/19/86 - September 19, 1986. In Snow Gives Way, Ward says, "I was 15 when [the Rands] died." This definitively places the air crash between September 19, 2001 and September 18, 2002.
↑In The Star-Spangled Man, John Walker says that he was "two years out of West Point when Steve Came back on the scene," referring to when Steve Rogers was unfrozen in December 2011 (see 2011 references). This would mean that Walker graduated from West Point in May 2009. West Point is a four-year school without a graduate program, so Walker was likely in the high school graduating class of 2005, meaning he was in kindergarten in the 1992-1993 school year. In Georgia, where Walker went to high school, the cutoff date to join kindergarten in the 1990s was to be five years old by September 1. This means that Walker was born between September 2, 1987 and September 1, 1988. Walker's birth can therefore be approximated to March 2, 1987.
↑In For Pete's Sake, on August 30, 2017 (see 2017 references), James Lucas says it has "been 30 years" since he "thumped anything harder than a Bible". This would suggest approximately August 30, 1987. However, it may more roughly just mean "2017 - 1987 = 30", so any time in 1987 (using mid-1987 as an approximation), or even more roughly just mean "2010s - 1980s = 30", so any time in the 1980s (using mid-1980s as an approximation). Putting more weight in the specific date than just the year, and more weight in the year than the decade, a weighted calculation gives roughly March 27, 1987 for the last time he threw a punch.
↑In Cold Steel, it is shown that Rawlins finished post-graduate college in 1987. Most college post-graduates finish around late May.
↑In The Fury of Iron Fist, Albert says, "When I was 12 years old, I almost joined the Hatchets." With Albert's date of birth approximated to November 1975 (see 1970s references), specifically November 28, 1975, the middle of his time as a 12-year-old (as an approximation for this event) would have been roughly May 29, 1987.
↑ 195.0195.1195.2In Wig Out, Mariah Dillard says, "The day I found out I was pregnant was the day that [Jackson Dillard] was shot and killed by the Contras." It is later revealed that this is a lie, and Tilda Johnson does not know her real age either. However, the timeline must approximately line up with Johnson's fake date of birth to not arouse suspicion. It is said in For Pete's Sake that Mariah and Jackson were engage at the time of Peter Stokes' death, which is dated to April 6, 1987 (see other references). So, their wedding, Jackson starting his work in Nicaragua, and Jackson being killed all occur after April 6, 1987, and then about 8 further months occur before Johnson's fake date of birth, meaning that date of birth cannot be earlier than December 1987. Assuming Johnson's birthday was kept the same, just the year changed, then with her real date of birth approximated to August 1985 (see other references), specifically August 20th, then her fake date of birth can be assumed as the first available August 20th after December 1987: August 20, 1988. If Jackson was killed about 242 days prior (the approximate amount of time between a woman finding out she is pregnant and giving birth), for Mariah's lie to be believable, then he would have died around December 21, 1987. The wedding and move to Nicaragua can then be distributed evenly between April 6, 1987 and December 21, 1987, giving approximately July 3, 1987 for the wedding and September 30, 1987 for the move to Nicaragua.
↑In One Bad Day, Wendy says on May 9, 2018 (see 2018 references) that she is "30", meaning she was born between May 10, 1987 and May 9, 1988. Her month of birth can therefore be approximated to November 1987.
↑In Fifteen, James Braswyck is shown to have been "20" when he died. With his death dated to December 5, 2008 (see 2000s references), Braswyck would have been born between December 6, 1987 and December 5, 1988, so approximately June 1988.
↑In Ant-Man and the Wasp, Bill Foster is shown to be approximately 56 (Laurence Fishburne's age at the time of filming) in Spring 2018, and Ava Starr is shown to be approximately 28 (Hannah John-Kamen's age at the time of filming) in Spring 2018. The flashbacks showing a young Ava show Bill Foster through a mix of Laurence Fishburne's son, Langston, 29 at the time of filming, and deageing Laurence Fishburne to how he looked c. 1986, aged 25. Ava is shown to be approximately 7 (RaeLynn Bratten's age at the time of filming). Overall, it can be calculated that Foster was born around July 1965 and Starr around August 1988, and the flashbacks are approximately November 2-4, 1995, when Foster is 30 and Starr is 7.
↑In The Whole World Is Watching, Sam Wilson says his aunt passed away "when I was a kid." Wilson's birth is dated to September 23, 1978 (see 1970s references), and since Wilson remembers the incident, it would not be before explicit memories started forming, which happens at two years old. Since Wilson refers to himself as a "kid," the absolute oldest Wilson could have been is 18. Using Wilson's second and eighteenth birthdays as the minimum and maximum, Wilson's aunt's death can be approximated to September 23.
↑ 206.0206.1In The Whole World Is Watching, Sam Wilson says that ceremony for his aunt lasted "about a week." Since Wilson's aunt's death is approximated to Friday, September 23, 1988 (see other references), the ceremony can be approximated to the during of the following week, Sunday, September 25-Saturday, October 1, 1988.
↑ 208.0208.1208.2In Captain Marvel, three instances are shown of a young child Monica Rambeau: a photo of her with Carol Danvers at Halloween, a photo of her with Danvers at Christmas, and a memory of her with Danvers looking at the stars. Judging from Rambeau being credited as 11 in June 1995 and actress Akira Akbar being 11.6 at the time of filming, Rambeau's date of birth would be approximated to December 1983 (see final approximated date of birth, September 1983, references for further explanation). Azari Akbar is credited as "Monica Rambeau (5 Years Old)", making Rambeau approximately 5.5. Azari Akbar herself was 6.7 years old during filming, suggesting Rambeau is slightly closer to 5.99 than 5.0. Working forwards from December 1989, her appearances would then be around mid-1989. They cannot be later than June 21, 1989, with Danvers disappearing on June 22, 1989 (see other references) and the appearances set before then. So, the closest Halloween and Christmas to the ideal mid-1989 placement for Azari Akbar's appearances, while still being pre-June 22, 1989, are Halloween 1988 and Christmas 1988. This then also had an effect on finally placing Rambeau's date of birth as September 1983 (see other references). Finally, placing the memory with the stars, with Azari Akbar credited as playing "Monica Rambeau (5 Years Old)", Rambeau would be approximately 5.5. Again, Azari Akbar herself was 6.7 years old during filming, suggesting Rambeau is slightly closer to 5.99 than 5.0. With Rambeau's date of birth dated to September 1983, so it can be calculated that this scene takes place around roughly April 25, 1989. The full details of the calculations may be found here.
↑ 210.0210.1In What If... T'Challa Became a Star-Lord?, the Watcher says that the timeline in which T'Challa became Star-Lord only began to differ from the MCU reality on the day Peter Quill was supposed to be kidnapped. However, this does not affect T'Challa and T'Chaka's conversation. Therefore, it can be assumed that this also happened in the main timeline.
↑ 211.00211.01211.02211.03211.04211.05211.06211.07211.08211.09211.10211.11211.12211.13211.14211.15211.16211.17In Captain Marvel, as the Skrulls cycle through Carol Danvers' memories, they first see the memory of Danvers with Maria Rambeau about to perform a test flight. They then go back to Danvers as a child, but have gone too far back, so go forward and see her doing rope training, presumably some time before the test flight because it is at the training stage, but also because they are trying to narrow down to the right memory. This memory then continues into one with Danvers being belittled in Pancho's Bar and, seemingly the same day (Danvers is in the same T-shirt), her playing pool with Rambeau. This continues into another memory of Pancho's Bar, karaoke. Following this, there is a memory of Danvers as a child watching the stars, then her with the Rambeaus watching the stars. There is no reason the Skrulls would have gone further back than the go karting to see an ever younger Danvers, knowing this to be too far back, so her as a child can be taken as a memory within Danvers' memory of watching the stars with Monica Rambeau, something she recalled as she did it, in which case the stars follows on from the karaoke and is still before the test flight with Maria Rambeau. Norex then finds the moment of Danvers with "Lawson". Since they are narrowing down where the memory is, it should presumably still be between the stars and the test flight. So, the chronology is the rope scene, then the man and pool at Pancho's, then karaoke at Pancho's, then watching the stars, then Lawson, then the test flight. And we know that, after all of this, was Danvers' crash with Lawson/Mar-Vell and her being abducted by Starforce. The abduction is said through the film, mostly on June 12, 1995 (see other references), and through external sources, to be both "6 years ago" and in "1989". So, it can be taken to be somewhere between exactly 6 years prior - June 12, 1989 - and the approximation for "1989" of the exact middle of 1989 - July 2, 1989 - making the crash and abduction roughly June 22, 1989. With the watching the stars dated to April 25, 1989 (see other references) and the abduction dated to June 22, 1989, Lawson and the test flight can be approximated as ⅓ and ⅔ between the two, so May 14, 1989 and June 3, 1989 respectively. So, with Danvers flying the planes by May 14, 1989, the rope training scene can be approximated to be 6 months or so prior - roughly November 14, 1988. This then means that the man and pool at Pancho's and karaoke at Pancho's can be approximated as ⅓ and ⅔ between November 14, 1988 and April 25, 1989, so January 7, 1989 and March 2, 1989 respectively.
↑In On a Very Special Episode..., Wanda Maximoff is said to have been born in "1989", though shown on a file to have been born in "1988". The dialogue takes precedence, but it can be assumed that the Maximoffs were born early in 1989 to be as close as possible to fitting both. It is is also shown that their parents died the day before "March 31, 1999", and stated in the episode and in Avengers: Age of Ultron that the twins were "10" at the time, meaning they were born between March 31, 1988 and March 30, 1989. This would suggest c. September 1988 as an approximation, but again, the "1989" dialogue takes precedence, so early 1989 may be taken as a best approximation.
↑In For Pete's Sake, Mariah Dillard says Mama Mabel had her first stroke when Tilda Johnson was "3". With her date of birth approximated to August 1985 (see other references), specifically August 20, 1985, the middle of Johnson's time as a 3-year-old (as an approximation for when the stroke happened) would be February 18, 1989.
↑In Black Panther, on July 1, 2016 (see references on 2016), T'Challa says that Klaue "escaped our pursuits for almost 30 years". W'Kabi later says, "For 30 years your father was in power and did nothing," referring to Klaue, and to the time that spanned between his attack and T'Chaka's death, dated to June 22, 2016. As well as this, W'Kabi says in a deleted scene, on July 4, 2016, that when it comes to Klaue, for "30 years, there's been no justice". While these pieces of dialogue would imply the attack was around 1987, the film also shows scenes set in "1992" which depict the attack as having been recent. Weighted calculations from all the evidence and factors gives April 24, 1989 as the approximate best-fitting date for the attack, and January 15, 1992 as the approximate best-fitting date for the "1992" scenes. The calculations for these dates and the other events are all relative to each other, and can be found in detail here.
↑In Fifteen, Xavier Marquez is shown to have been "17" when he died. With his death dated to December 8, 2006 (see 2000s references), Marquez would have been born between December 9, 1988 and December 8, 1989, so approximately June 1989.
↑In Fifteen, Tim Bennett is shown to have been "16" when he died. With his death dated to December 9, 2005 (see 2000s references), Bennett would have been born between December 10, 1988 and December 9, 1989, so approximately June 1989.
↑In Captain Marvel, Nick Fury says on June 12, 1995 (see 1990s references) that he has "been riding a desk for the past 6 years". This could specifically refer to 6 years prior, roughly June 12, 1989, or more generally "1995 - 6 = 1989", so approximated with mid-1989, July 2, 1989. Putting more weight on specifically 6 years rather than just general, a weighted average gives him starting the job as approximately June 19, 1989.
↑In On and On, Shades and Comanche discuss the time they stole hot dogs from Coney Island. Shades and Comanche met on November 14, 1984. This would therefore be the earliest possible date for them to have stolen the hot dogs. The story involves Comanche’s mother beating him, implying that Comanche has not yet turned 18, meaning his 18th birthday, May 5, 1994, is the latest possible date for it to happen. Using these two dates as the minimum and maximum, respectively, they would have stolen the hot dogs on August 14, 1989.
↑ 232.0232.1In The Dark Hearts of Men, Krista Dumont talks about when she nursed a bird back to health. She says she found the bird when she was "eight, maybe," meaning she was likely between seven and nine years old. With Dumont born in approximately March 1981 (see other references), she would have found the bird int he middle of her seventh and ninth birthdays, approximately September 15, 1989. Dumont says that the bird flew away "a week later," which could either refer to an exact seven days, September 22, or the latter half of the following week calendar week (since September 15, 1989 was a Friday), September 20-23. A weighted calculation, placing greater weight on the more specific, would place the bird flying away on September 21, 1989.
