Welcome to the latest episode of THN Cover to Cover, the weekly, comic book call-in show where YOU control the topics! In Cover to Cover, we answer the Question of the Week and talk about whatever nerdy subjects come to mind!
This week’s question comes from Kettnerd via the THN Forums: “So I was thinking a bit in regards to generational characters, and superheroes aging. DC has a tradition of legacy characters and Marvel has been catching on recently. However, because mainstream comics can never truly move forward we’ll still return to Barry Allen as the Flash, Peter Parker as Spidey, etc. Since this seems to be the way it will always be, getting new versions of the characters, only to have the originals come back and have multiple generations of heroes exist side by side…How OLD should certain heroes tap out at? Like what’s a reasonable status quo age for a given character? What is the maximum age that we’ll accept Bruce Wayne? Peter Parker? How old is Kitty Pryde? This is a sort of convoluted train of thought, and perhaps I’ll rephrase when I boil down the idea a bit more, but this was just something I was legitimately curious about.”
