> I know due to the sliding time scale Marvel characters age is not reflecting of real world age, but how old would you say the following are based on looks, comments, etc.
> Ex. Hercules is around 3,500 years old based on the dates given in his current series. Franklin Richards appears to be about 10.
Franklin is probably around 8 (though he regresses in age sometimes).

I prefer to use the 10 year rule, but I know others like to use the 12 or higher year guide.

In thinking of their ages, I try to think what age they were when first introduced, and when they were introduced in the Marvel U. For me, Spider-Man was introduced at the beginning, and was 16 at the time. So I would add 10 to that age.

> The Fantastic Four individual members

Mr. Fanastic- 40
Thing- 40
Invisible Woman- 34
Human Torch- 26

> Nick Fury

Around 28 when WW2 hit. Add the years up for his real age. I would say he is in his 50s by appearance.

> Spider-Man


> Wolverine

Late 30s by looks.

> Daisy Johnson

20. I think she was stated to be 18 recently though.

> Amadeus Cho


> Ghost Rider

Johnny Blaze- 35

> the Wasp


> The Sentry


> Iron Man

Late 30s.
