    I am getting a bit confused on who started what and then which organizations got renames/abandoned/reinvented with all the new Hasbro Universe stuff.

    Is there a chart already available to help more casual readers follow along?

    If we're talking government groups, it goes something like:

    Adventure Team - 1982 to at least 1994, possibly right up until G.I. Joe's founding
    Skywatch - 1985 to 2008 (i.e. until AHM)
    G.I. Joe - 2006 to 2014, 2016 to present
    Skywatch 2.0 - 2009 (i.e. after AHM) to ~2012
    Earth Defense Command - ~2012 to 2016

    It's implied the EDC was replaced by G.I. Joe in 2016.

    There's also the Action Man Programme, which was founded in 1586 and continues today.
    Cobra is an ancient organization, with the earliest known records of it dating back to the 1300s, but it likely existed before that.
    The Coil was founded in 1992.
    Team Extreme operated in the 1990s, though the only specific year we know is 1994.
    MASK, which started as a government program, was founded in 2016.

    And there's Machination, which was from... whenever Scorponok founded it until Maximum Dinobots (2007? Shortly before All Hail Megatron).

    The Scorponok part of Spotlight: Ultra Magnus took place 29 stellar cycles before Escalation, so probably not long after that.

    2006 - [(29 x 7.5)/12] = 1987.875

    I'd imagine that the Machination would be founded at least a few years after Nebulos, to give Scorponok time to be reduced to a disembodied head.
    Maybe, like, 1992 or something?
