Actually that was a continuity mistake. If you consider the timeline, Charles is what like... 9-10 in the early 40s?? So he was born in like 1930, so he's in his early 30s in xmfc. Erik looks a little older so he's probably mid-30s.
Oh my gods thank you for clearing that up holy fucking shit I was so scared for a second that makes so much more sense I cannot thank you enough anon fucking hell
Tho I really thought he was more like 20-25 this feels much better than 17 I mean holy fucking shit (I’m sorry for such strong reaction I was just literally gobbsmacked I’m very sorry)
I cannot thank you enough for taking some precious time to send me this I don’t know what I would have done without this new information, and if you ever want to, you’re more than welcome to come off anonymous so I can thank you in person. You’re a real lovely person, thank you thank you thank you!
I’m talking about this with another couple of people too. *L* It’s such a hot topic. I’d say Charles is about 12, maybe 13 when he meets Raven. We know that he was 12 when he realized he was a telepath. And right, Erik is a little older. I think Charles is about 29 in XMFC and then 37, almost 38, in XMDOFP. The age thing, man. They do love their sliding scale in the comics.
But how about Charles and Erik being in their 90s in XMDOFP? I don’t buy that, unless Mutants age slower than humans naturally.
