The following timeline details the events of the A Nightmare on Elm Street series in chronological order. In the 2009 comic book "Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash: The Nightmare Warriors", Agent Wesley Carter travels back in time. In 1964, then, he signs Freddy Krueger's warrant which has not been done in the timeline established in the movies. This was one reasons why Krueger was released from prison and killed by the parents of Elm Street. This event in the comic therefore alters the entire A Nightmare on Elm Street history as we know it. Unfortunately, there is no further information by the authors of the comic about this topic.
December: While working as a nun at The Hathaway House in Springwood, Ohio under the name in Christ "Sister Mary Helena", Amanda Krueger is accidentally locked in the institute when the building is locked up for the Christmas holidays. The hundred male mental patients keep her hidden for days, raping her hundreds of times. When Amanda is found, she is barely alive and pregnant. (A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors and A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child)
(In A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, Neil Gordon says the Amanda Krueger scandal occurred in the 1940s. Based on the fact that her son Freddy had a daughter in 1961, it would make sense to allow Freddy's birth to take place as soon as possible.
