Below is a partial timeline of events in the Marvel fan fiction community.

Marvel does not have a single, unified fanfiction community; instead, fans of various segments of the Marvel universe (such as the X-Men comics, the X-Men movies, Spider-Man, the Avengers, and so on) tend to form their own individual communities. There are also significant amounts of fannish discussion on various message board sites.
