    Twitter is not canon! It doesnt matter what JDW says. If it isnt in a published book, then its not gospel bc the next editor can come in and completely contradict him and that be legit bc theres no canonical evidence to support Scott still being 27. Iceman just had a birthday and they could have shut this down by having him become 25 or 26 but they didnt so I see that bday as him becoming 31 which makes more sense

    At the end of the day, I wouldn’t hold editors any higher than the actual writers who establish the information to begin with.
    Didn't someone say at one point that Jean, Scott, and Emma were all around the same age and this was a little after Emma had said during the Utopia period just before the Phoenix 5 that she was 28. I kind of figured that made Scott, Jean, and Emma all around 28 or 29.

    Depending on the writers though Scott can really look like an experienced soldier. Maybe he is older than Jean and Emma, although Jean and Emma are the same, sometimes they seem like they are drawn in their 20's and then other times it feels like the writer and artist are portraying them in their 30's.

    Lol, they get to 35ish and they all reset like a rubber band back to 27 again.

    Those gaps eventually get compressed or ignored too. Time skips and other story conventions are only relevant for a short time.

    He will always be 35-40 on my mind.

    Mary Jane said recently in ASM Peter is in his mid 20's; if he is that age, so is Scott.

    Yeah, I feel like Scott should be in his mid 30's ideally. He is a leader and a strategist and one of the greatest leaders of the X-Men, my head-canon is that he is somewhere between 35 and 40.

    Mentally he is between 35 and 40 thanks to "The Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix"

    There was one issue on champions were someone pointed that Scott even as a teen, felt like an old man.
    Is just the way he is what makes him feel older.

    And Slott, who wrote Parker for almost a decade, also said Parker 28 before an 8 month fast forward in ASM vol 3 issue 1 IIRC. Bendis around that time said the 05 were early 30ís at one point, as did JDW to Scott specifically just a year ago. There is no consistency and I think at some point, to a degree, it comes up to reader interpretation based on info given. If you want to go with a specific number based off of Spider-Man, 28-29, because that itself is only a couple of years old. That also falls ďaround 27Ē. So there you go if you want him Spider-Manís age. Itís still not 27.

    I agree with Nicieza and JDW’s original statement of about 30-32 at the oldest. While I think Scott should be mid, timescaling roughly puts him around early 30’s. Hell, even in the 80’s he could’ve been 28-29 when he said he lost his family 20 years ago, considering he was around 7-9 IIRC at that point. And if we want Parker’s age, 29ish.

    Basically, with the last statement. Emma is about 2 years younger than Jean in canon. She herself was 27 back in Morrison’s run and had a birthday around the Utopia era, but I could see her being the same age as them, early 30’s. Shaw just recently called her old as well, which I don’t consider anyone late 20’s as old. Just my interpretation since it could’ve just been an insult. I’d say at youngest, Emma, Jean, and Scott would be 29. No older than 31-32.

    The characters are the age Marvel wants them to be. And if they're past a certain age- say, 18 or 21- does it really matter?
