All The Primary Timelines In The Marvel Universe

Over the years, the Marvel Multiverse has expanded from one reality into hundreds, if not thousands more mirror universes. With each new story delving into a new alternate reality, be it the familiar What If...? storyline or something entirely different, the creators over at Marvel Comics establish an entirely new world. As each new universe is created, it is given a number in the vein of Earth-616, Earth-12123, etc...

There have been hundreds of these Earths listed in detail throughout Marvel's history (many of them just dedicated to the X-Men), but only a small number could be considered to be primary timelines within the overall Marvel Universe. These typically feature a Marvel imprint or a universe that is so important, it plays a major role in the development of a new book or established series. Here are all of the main Marvel Universe timelines listed with their first appearances (or mentions), who lives or comes from them, and why they are important.
