If the X-Men aged like us

#1 Posted by Hysteria (536 posts) - - Show Bio

I was thinking today about what would happen if the X-Men aged like us. For example lets say Cyclops was 18 when he debueted back in 1963 that would mean he was born in 1945. So if he aged like us now he would be 67. Here a few more examples for you.

Original X-Men- Late teens, early 20s in 1963 so now they would be late 60s early 70s.

Storm- early to mid 20s in 1975 so now would be around the early 60s by now.

Gambit- mid to late 20s in 1990 so now would be Late 40s early 50s

Kitty Pryde- 13 1/2 in 1980 so now would be 45/46.

I would like Marvel to make a universe/whatever based on this concept, with ageing, successors and people staying dead. I think they tried to do that with the Ultimate stuff but its time for a redo.

@Misterkyle91: I agree that would be a cool universe to see

A six issue mini would be cool, but I don't think I would read it if it was an on going. Something in the style of the Watchmen.

I've seen a story with them old before. I can't remember which one though.... I remember that Storm evolved into an embodiment of weather, Rouge had a braid, and was quite old like 60 and I think Cyclops was in a wheel chair....

- I really do not care about comic characters aging in real time, but they do need to do a better job of at least making the characters age relative to the others better.
