I'm currently reading Ultimate X-men and everyone is in their teens, and yet Emma had already had some Lovin with professor x and now she is the Leader of the Academy of tomorrow....i thought she was in the same age range as Scott and all of them....

Probably 'cause they wanted her to be the leader for her own team of mutants, which would be weird if she was 16. ;P

I always assumed Emma was always a few years older then Scott and Jean. But that is just me. I assume in Ultimate they made her older then she is in the other series because of the story line.

Maybe Emma is a craddle robber?....

#13 Posted by pixelized (62882 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah now that i think about it i think Emma Might be a good decade older then what we believe her to be...i wouldnt be surprised. Whatevs though.

you can't base her 616 age on her ultimate age. it's 2 different universes where things can be and usually are significatly different

Who really knows. Comics in general slow down aging, she could range from late 20s to early 30s

Old enough to be an Auntie, but not old enough to have children, until Fraction is DC Exclusive.

Does that make her younger than Scott? I figured him to be in his mid to late 30's now.

#35 Edited by PhoenixoftheTides (3453 posts) - - Show Bio

I always thought of her as being in her thirties - 30-35, and slightly older than Scott, Jean and Ororo, who would be in their late twenties/early thirties. She seemed older in her initial appearance and during the "New Mutants", she almost seemed a contemporary for Magneto and Charles Xavier. 
 
I guess those scans corrected me LOL, but that was actually one of the few things I didn't like about Morrisons' run, even though I understand that the characters are perpetually young. 

#36 Posted by thestepfordcuckoos (147 posts) - - Show Bio

Emma has to be in her thirties but I think I remember her stating the fact that she lies about her age or many be it was someone else. Lol. But it is known that she is older than Scott.

#37 Posted by riri4life (7189 posts) - - Show Bio

Y'all are delusional if u think she's still in her 20s. lol

 

....I'd say she's pushing 67.

#38 Posted by HexThis (884 posts) - - Show Bio

In her solo series, Emma watches the X-men on a newscast on TV while still in highschool but it appears it's during the original 5's time so she's probably either a bit older or the same age as the X-men.

Though recently in Generation Hope or Uncanny or something she did mention finding gray hairs....

@HexThis:@thestepfordcuckoos:   I think she is in her late 20's early 30's, as for her being older or younger than Scott i don't think she is older purely because in her solo series when she was still in High School she saw the original 5 in their own costumes not the xavier institute ones so id guess at that point they are in their late teens or early 20's there and Jean "died" at the age of 24 this is in issue 138 of uncanny, and they graduated when they got their own costumes didn't they?

#41 Posted by John Valentine (16307 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd estimate early 30s by now, assuming that Scott, Jean and Warren are maybe 30-32, Hank is maybe 34/35, Bobby is 28-30 and Storm is 37-40.

Sounds quite consistent with the flashback story from Generation X Minus 1 where she was stated to be 16. Marvel published such a -1 issue for most titles back in July 1997, and they were intended to take place 13 years in the past; 3 years before the FF and Spidey got their powers, which was 10 years in the past at that time. Now it's very recently been stated that FF's space flight took place 13 years ago, so about 3 years should have passed in the Marvel Universe since then, making her ca 32 years old right now.

Well, assuming you can rely on stated ages which you generally cannot, since there will always be contradictions and characters that age at different rates (like soaps). Marvel stated in the letter pages of Generation X that Emma's flashback took place only 10 years ago for instance.

At least early thirties matches the view of the current Uncanny writer Kieron Gillen quite well: http://www.formspring.me/KieronGillen/q/2123209771

Edit: Don't know about the other ages you stated though. I'd say Cyclops is about the same age as Spider-Man, which should be around 27-29. At least they both started out at the same age, 15-16 or so. Beast maybe a few years older. Jean's "real" age is pretty much up for grabs considering her many years as dead and occasionally resurrected.

@The Dark Huntress: How can anyone really know? Writers portray the character really at any age see fitting the generation of comic reader. That is why Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman aren't portrayed as 70 years old or older. So it really depends on the generation, writer, and continuity of a comic book

Because her age has been stated on panel before as being 28. There's no way she's in her late thirties at this point. It would make sense for her to be in her early thirties, though. 

Writers portray the character really at any age see fitting the generation of comic reader. That is why Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman aren't portrayed as 70 years old or older. 

No, the sliding timescale is why they aren't portrayed as that old. Writers don't get to just say "Hey, let's have Wonder Woman be thirty three today" and then in the next run a writer decides to make her mid-twenties. You're making it sound like they just play around with ages all willy nilly and that's not what happens at all.    

So it really depends on the generation, writer, and continuity of a comic book  

Yes, and in current continuity and going by the person who is currently writing her (Kieron Gillen), Emma is in her early thirties.

Emma's is. She was said to be 28 during Morrison's New X-Men run, placing her around her early thirties now, a few years younger than Scott.

I always picture her as 30 .

#50 Posted by MutieLover (100 posts) - - Show Bio

I was always under the impression that she was a bit older than Hank, Scott, etc. based on her earlier appearances- a little younger than Sebastian Shaw and much younger than Xavier and Magneto. But like Rogue, she was de-aged when she became a good guy.
