SPOILER ALERT: DO NOT PROCEED IF YOU HAVE NOT SEEN “AVENGERS: ENDGAME”

LAST WARNING…

I MEAN IT…

I think it’s safe to say that a lot of people had to focus very hard to keep Endgame’s many plot points straight. Even though the MCU’s version of time travel removed the complexities of altering the past, it’s still hard to keep track of exactly what went down where and when, so I have sorted through the key quantum realm time jumps in order to make a timeline of the MCU’s biggest success yet.


A: 1970s, Hank Pym is working on his Pym particles in a military base in NJ where the Tesseract is stored.

B: 2012, the Battle of New York. Loki has the Mind Stone in his scepter. The Space Stone is inside the tesseract. The Ancient One is downtown with the Time Stone.

C: 2013, the Reality Stone (aka Aether) is inside Jane Foster who is in Asgard.

D: 2014, the Soul Stone remains undiscovered on Vormir.

E: 2014, Starlord discovers the Power Stone on Morag.

F: 2018, Thanos collects all of the stones and wipes out half of all life.

G: Three weeks later, Captain Marvel rescues a stranded Iron Man and the surviving Avengers find that Thanos has destroyed the stones. Thor executes him.

H: 2023: Ant-Man escapes the Quantum Realm having only perceived 5 hours. The Avengers realize they can time travel and plot the time heist.

Red: Thor and Rocket travel from 2023 to Asgard, 2013, where they steal the Aether and Thor retrieves Mjolnir. They return to 2023.

Orange: Hawkeye and Black Widow travel from 2023 to Vormir, 2014, where Black Widow sacrifices herself permanently so that they can get the Soul Stone. Hawkeye returns to 2023.

Green: Hulk, Iron Man, Ant-Man and Captain America travel from 2023 to New York 2012. Hulk obtains the Time Stone and returns to 2023. Captain America obtains the Mind Stone. Iron Man and Ant-Man fail to acquire the Space Stone, so they send Ant-Man back to 2023 with the Mind Stone.

Blue: Captain America and Iron Man travel from 2012 to the 1970s where they steal extra Pym Particles for time travel and the Tesseract. They return to 2023.

Purple: War Machine and Nebula travel from 2023 to Morag 2014, where they steal the Power Stone. War Machine returns to 2023, but Nebula is captured by 2014 Thanos.

Pink: Past Thanos sends past Nebula to 2023 where she allows past Thanos and his entire army to the future, effectively resurrecting Gamora, Thanos, and all of his forces lost in 2018.

The End: Hulk uses the stones to bring back everyone who died in the snap. Past Thanos obliterates the Avengers facility. A massive fight ensues between Thanos’  entire army and the Avengers‘ combined forces. Iron Man uses the stones to disintegrate Thanos, dying in the process.

Yellow: After Iron Man’s funeral, Captain America travels back in time to put the stones and Mjolnir (which he can wield) back in their proper times. Instead of returning, he stays in the past and marries his love, Agent Carter. An old Captain America appears to his friends and passes his shield onto Falcon.
