    Grimm and Richards were shown to have served in WWII. It was Xavier and Marko who were in Korea.

    Its hard to tell.

    I think Peter Parker should be late 20's early 30's. Which makes the original X-Men to be around that age bracket as well.

    Canonball is 22.

    Jubilee is 17. (which makes no sense because Dick Grayson is in his mid twenties and they kissed/dated)

    Rogue is around 24/25

    Jessica Drew mid 30's

    Miles Morales is 19 I think.

    how fun!

    If you go by Bendis' Spider-Woman origin I'm putting Jess in her early 30s (30-33). I think Carol is older than Jess, so I'd put her in her late 30s (37ish). And seeing the most recent appearances of Crystal - I'm putting her at around 30?

    So if Kitty is 23 that would make Rogue 26-27.

    Stark, Banner and Pym are all about the same age, having started off at 30. That would make them in their early 40's now.

    Cap, according to the movie , was born on July 4 1918 (you see it on one is his application forms I think) meaning in 1944 he would be 26, 27 when he went into the ice, and between 38 and 40 now in the comics.
    If Rogue is 26-27 now, then Carol has to be 38-39 now. Carol is 12 years older than Rogue is. If Rogue was 17 in Avengers Annual #10. The Same issue states that Carol was 29 at the time.

    I believe they did in one of the earlier Marvel 2 for/in one (whatever the Thing/Torch book is called) issues

    probably. but, physically, Carol's in her prime. that's just how that kree stuff works. I thought that Rogue was the same age as Bobby Drake.

    That was the Tim Drake!Robin who she got paired with in Marvel vs. DC.

    Miles is also definitely in High School so he's 16/17.

    Last time they mentioned Tony's age was when Fraction was writing him and he stated he was 35.

    that makes sense. he was teasing Scott Lang about being old. and Scott (in his thought bubble) remarked about Tony being older. that put them at 34 and 35 respectively; depending on how much time has passed since Fraction's run.

    Marvel Knights isn't Marvel 616.

    A lot of colonels in the US military are under the age of 30.

    George Armstrong Custer was born on December 5, 1839 and promoted to Colonel on September 19, 1864. That means Custer was 24 years and 9 months (three months before his 25th birthday) when he was promoted to colonel.

    George Washington was born on February 22, 1732 and promoted to Colonel on August 14, 1755. Washington was only 23 years old when he was promoted to colonel.

    You had to go back 150 years to find prominent examples. Times when people under the age of 18 were allowed in the armed forces. That hasn't happened (legitimately) for a long long time. https://www.quora.com/What-is-the-av...he-US-military
