This is probably a silly question, but -- I know that the 3-part annual story this summer takes place immediately after ClanDestine 1-5 from 2008. Would you say the whole storyline takes place back in 2008 when 1-5 came out, or now when the annuals are coming out, or some other time? Is the Wolverine we'll be seeing the one we have now running the school, or from before? (Etc.) So much of Marvel's stuff the last few years has been event-driven... Is the FF annual before Johnny died or after he came back? And so on...
(Mind you, I think things are vastly better now than in 2008. The X-Men's school is back, Captain America is alive again, Iron Man isn't a jerk, etc. I'm personally eager to forget the grim/dark era as fast as I possibly can.)
Or, heck, is it mostly continuity-free and can I put it whenever I want?(Corrected misspelling in title of thread, since it's the chronology I am asking about--chromology could be interesting from an artistic perspective, of course! )
