    I imagine the majority of the Golden/Silver/Bronze age characters to be between 30-40. The modern age legacy characters or the former sidekicks should be 20 something.

    For those of us that are older, I wonder what ages we would have assigned the heroes when we first read them as teens or pre-teens. What defines old was different then.

    JSA - old
    JLA and Catwoman - mid-30s
    Talia and Batwoman - Early 30s
    Oracle and Power Girl - Late 20s
    Titans gen - mid-20s
    Outlaws gen - early 20s
    Young Justice and Teen Titans gen - Teens
    Super Sons and Chris - Ten
    There's literally no difference between 13-year-old Damian and 10-year-old Damian so I'm dragging him back to 10

    Side note: I will forever be amused that originally both Dick and Talia were in college when Bruce fell in love with her. I bump her up so it's less weird.

    I have to agree, there is really not much of point to age him up 13, if he is still written and drawn the same way as he was as a 10 year old.

    I still think that just based on the timeline, it is really hard to justify for Jason to be more than one year older than Tim.

    But this is less about making the math work (because in The Big Two, it won't. ever.) than about each readers sense, in their own head, of how old these characters are.

    Most of mine are 75 to 80 years old. There's a few that I dig that are around 40 to 50 and a couple that are around 20 years old as well.

    Oh, you mean the character ages in the stories? Depends. is it a year one story? a Modern tale? an Elseworlds? a cartoon? a movie? Just depends on the tale being told, really.

    Back in the 70's, pretty much everyone was 29. DC really didn't want their heroes to seem old back then and 30, WAS old back when I was 8 to 15.

    The Titans and the LSH were around 17 to 20.

    No second or third gen legacy heroes to muck up the timelines/continuity back then.

    Jason: 19
    Steph: 19

    Once upon a time, John Stewart was a bit younger than Hal Jordan & Guy Gardner.

    At least back then, he was slightly older than Dick Grayson & Kyle Rayner.

    That was my experience, also. The JSA members were about 50, while the legacy characters of Earth-2 were in their twenties/early thirties.

    If we go by what the timeline looks like now, I would say the JLA founders will have been around 15 years or so. This makes me believe Batman is right at 40 because you have to shoehorn in all the Robins. I put Hal around that age as well. Barry is probably a year or two younger, because you have to have given him time to graduate college with the ability to truly be a police scientist. So, Barry is 38. Clark is also 38, due to him traveling the world for a year and then graduating college early and starting his career as Superman at around 21.
    Dick is pushing 30, along with Wally and the other OG Teen Titans.
    Ollie is older, probably pushing 50, and Black Canary is younger than him, I’ll say 35.
    The YJ Titans are pushing 20.
    We know Damien is 13, Jon is 10.

    No matter what people think ... I’m pretty sure in current continuity Barbara as Batgirl is only 21 ... as has been stated a number of times.

    Btw. Batwoman is acording to her current series iirc just 27 or 28. Even if she was oginally 32 when she started (and is shown to be roughly the same age as Bruce in recent flashbacks ...).
