Man, this is just ridiculous! Aside from an entire universe made of super beings, time travel, light speed, and rapid/abrupt mutation in the human genome, it's just absurd to bring the dead back to life. What does Marvel think they are doing? It's not like they are writing fiction!!!
On a tangent, I am excited to see Aaron desperate his adult team from his JGS children. WatX finally won't be so crowded.
I had to drop this title. I hated that Slott constantly made Parker look like the bad guy. I hated that every issue I look for some hint to Peter coming back. I also hate the idea that the bad guy wins. Does anyone else find it disgusting that this old crippled villain gets Parker's awesome life, with amazing friends, family, and adventures, instead of dying? Where the hell is the Karma in that? What, Peter once again is under-appreciated for the shit that he does? I am sick of that story, I get it enough in real life, I don't need it in comics. And what does Slott mean relatable? If you relate to Ock, then you probably don't collect comics; you most likely are a CEO or a Chairman for a big company that involved a long and bloody path.
Magneto - Late 60's (but physically like 40 something)
Xavier - Late 60's
Iceman - 26
Characters ages have been thrown around - unfortunately yet not surprisingly they often contradict each other. Plus writers aren't aiming for realism, rather what they feel works best for each character - allowing enough ambiguity for readers to project because ultimately how we project ages determines our own personal enjoyment and the more we individually enjoy the characters the more we are willing to give them money.
this seems about right to me, except I think it was stated that Colossus is about 7 years older than kitty
