Official Cinematic Universe is the created universe that nearly all of Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s movies, comics, and more take place in. It was created in order to create new character dynamics and continuity for all of the pieces of content.
Canon Details Edit
- Canon Element Type: Official Canon
- Function: Story Structure
- Appearances: n/a
- Real or Fictional: Fictional
For Mustache Maniacs Film Co.'s first eight years, all of the films existed within their own worlds, with only a few exceptions along the way, such as Wonders of Buoyancy existing in the continuity of the Johnny Thunder Saga. This was done to create more creative freedom for each film.
However, in the 2012 film Late for the Soccer Match, the characters of Ulysses S. Powell (from When Barrels Fly) and Wendy Simmons (from A Very Patrick Christmas) were included side-by-side on-screen. This opened up a new avenue of possibilities for who could be in what film. This paved the way for what would eventually become Legends of the Universe.
In early 2013, around the time Drawn to Life Animation was formed, it was made official that, with a few exceptions, every single Mustache Maniacs Film Co. movie exists inside a single universe. Around this time was also when Project U was formed, even though it would wait another year to be announced. The saga was teased, however, in the form of the TV news report in A Friend of the Police.
Since its formulation, the cinematic universe has been constantly tweaked and updated to reflect current movie schedules and a growing need to establish new stories and develop character backgrounds. Even the fans have been given a hand in developing the universe with contests such as The Quest for Canonization and The Canon that Time Forgot. Material outside of Mustache Maniacs Film Co. has also been canonized for the universe.
The official cinematic universe works as a framing device that dictates plot details for movies, comics, and more, dictating what can and cannot be used. It tells who characters are, how certain organizations function, where certain locations are, and so forth. Because not everything is ironed out about everything currently, the canon is constantly being updated with new content.
One thing that the cinematic universe disregards is film format. Whether a film is stop-motion animation, live action, picture narrative, and so forth, it is only regarded as "looking at the universe through different lenses."
Listed here is the entire canon timeline of events. In other words, this is all of the canon films, comics, and more listed in chronological order with each item's year in which the contents take place, not the year it was produced. Anything with an asterisk is either a fan film from a canonization contest or a non Mustache Maniacs Film Co. product that is regarded as canon.

- The Mustache Maniacs Film Co. Cinematic Universe is loosely inspired by the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
- One thing that Mustache Maniacs Film Co. CEO Andrew Bermudez has lamented about are the difficulties that the universe has created. Not only does each film, comic, and more have to be written in the context of the rest of the universe, but each film has the potential to affect any future films. Because of this, a rule exists that new content is not regarded as canon until it is released.
- Not surprisingly, contradictions exist in the canon that are still in the process of being ironed out. For example, according to Lord Sinister's dialogue in Vladnichuk's shop, Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile takes place six weeks after Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo. However, A Greater Cost establishes the events of Johnny Thunder and the Gift of the Nile as being in August of 2010, two years after the events of Johnny Thunder and the Secret of Marco Polo. How the canon will be fixed to address issues like this one is currently undecided.
- Time flows slightly slower in Dimension 525 compared to the primary Cinematic Universe. For example, during the events of Rift, it is 2007 in the primary universe while it is 1998 in Dimension 525.
