What’s in the Marvel Comics Timeline: The ’70s?

Welcome to the third chapter of the Marvel Comics timeline. This section covers all of the major comics for popular Marvel characters from the 1970s. While many of these comics are forgettable, there are a few classics that you can find. This includes comics focusing on characters like Captain America, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, and members of the Avengers. For the full list of timelines in the Marvel 616 timeline, visit our main Marvel Multiverse page.

Only comics make up this timeline. Since the contents are not a multi-media timeline like many of the other timelines on this site, there is no color coding found here. This timeline also does not include the publication year or author. We do this because Marvel releases multiple re-releases across several years, and you will often find multiple authors per trade paperback. For that reason, we do not include them. However, if you’re looking for an easy-to-follow list of books in the Marvel 616 timeline, this is the best place to start.

Be sure to let us know if you see anything that needs to be added, changed, or deleted from the timeline. You can do so on our contact page, or by contacting Jason through Twitter.
