Unlike Earth-616, Earth-98 does not operate on a Sliding Timescale and as such the passage of time and the details of events have progressed much slower. In this reality the Modern Age of Heroes (which is identified as the birth of the Fantastic Four occurred in the year 1961. Whereas the Earth-616 universe currently[note 1] measures the Modern Age as being in existence for about fourteen years. When this reality was visited by the Thing of Earth-616, the modern age of his reality had existed for ten years, while the modern age of Earth-98 had existed for 37 years at that time. It should also be noted that while "year ten" on of the modern age of Earth-616 will always be moving forward in time, the year that Ben Grimm-616 visited this reality will always be the calendar year 1998. Events on this world appear to be more or less analogous to Earth-616, despite the differences, but the timeframe moves much slower.


The past history of Peter Parker on Earth-98 mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart although the passage of time in this reality is much slower. Peter Parker became Spider-Man in the year 1962. Later be began dating Gwen Stacy in the year 1967. In 1974, Peter's foe the Green Goblin discovered Peter's identity he kidnapped Gwen. Gwen died in the ensuing battle as did the Green Goblin. Spider-Man disappeared from the public eye shortly after. Since none knew Spider-Man's double identity, his disappearance is still considered a mystery to most.[1]
