Is this actual character age as in how long since they were created or their comic book age?

I think it's how old they're supposed to be right now, story wise.

Superman: I prefer when he used to be portrayed as around 38 or so (his former classmate Pete Ross was the Vice President of the United States, making both of them certainly over 35). It can be deduced from dialogue in Action Comics that he is 25 in the present following the de-aging of all characters in the New 52. As someone who just turned 27 today, am I the only one who would prefer to look up to heroes such as Superman, almost as father-figures, rather than find them relatable? If anything, it's depressing seeing someone (even fictional) younger than myself so much more accomplished and having a life so much more adventure-filled than my own. I remember when I felt 19 slipping by, lamenting how I had no accomplishments yet nearly on par with Luke Skywalker's destruction of the Death Star at the same age.

Batman: Same as above, for similar reasons.

Wonder Woman: She was eighteen in Justice League, which took place a little over five years ago, so do the math.

Captain America: Over ninety years old at the very least (time spent frozen in ice still counts towards your age).

Wonder Woman was 18 in JL issue 1?

Superman's such a playa.

@minigunman123: Did you seriously say Thor was 32? Its cannon that he's been around for at least 2 thousand years

@RideASpaceCowboy: Pre-52 I thought it was widely considered that Superman was 29? (excluding JSA etc)

@minigunman123: He's a well known part of real world Mythology, he's covered in many history classes when they discuss Vikings. This isn't even a comics specific thing.

Comics =/= real world. Marvel could've made him 2 yeas old, for all I know.

Starfire... now? 25-26, I'll say. She grew up like the rest of the Titans. I don't know if her species is longer lived than humans, though.
