    Apparently only when it's Wolverine & Immortal women.

    Let Creed & Magneto hook up with someone, and the age-police show up. lol

    I keep pitching to writers that Black Widow should date age appropriate men, and none of them listen to me.

    Who's she dated that old? It wasn't Cap was it? Or is she more Cougar, and dates younger? I haven't read as much of her.

    Personally speaking my problem with Magneto and Rogue wasn't the age, is just that Magneto has done some really shitty things to Rogue (worse than almost anyone in her life).

    I didn't mind Creed because he was pretty much another man during that story, but people has different standars for shippingn there are people that simply can't stand more than 1 year difference between pairings for example.

    It is she who is old. Clint Barton was super young for her.

    I just checked and although there are contradictory versions, according to a story she was born in 1928, she is older than Magneto.

    I can understand that. But for Magneto & Creed, I have seen age listed as one of the cons.

    I never got the big deal. If a character is immortal, or close to it, then I think age shouldn't even be a factor. Because the only alternative is them living in celibacy. lol The longer they live, the bigger the age gaps are gonna keep getting between them & romantic / sexual prospects.

    Just long as they're not hooking up with children.

    Magneto is a little older. Born in 1926 according to Testament.

    Oh, I thought he was younger during World War II.

    Awww. Another cougar for the jungle. lol Didn't know she was that old. Younger than Mystique, but older than Mags.
    Plenty of people just aren't into age-gap romance. But in general i agreed, as long as the love interest isn't a kid (preferably an adult in his 20s at the very least), i see no issue, i don't want Mystique to be the only choice for Logan and Creed lol.

    The thing is that Wolverine, Mystique and Sabretooth do not have the psyche you would expect from someone over one hundred years old. They seem to have the personality of being 40 years old at best.

    Too late for the latter. He may as well have a "Property of Mystique" tattooed on him. Because it's her or nothing. All his other love interests have been one-offs that don't appear longer than 1 page. Or killed off the the minis they got introduced in.

    So he's stuck as Mystique's occasional pet. Cements his role as a loser character. lol

    Wolverine will continue to have hordes of lovers, and was smart enough to kick Mystique to the curb a long time ago. Perks of being the popular pet character.

    Put it down to their healing factors keeping their bodies (and brains) fresh.

    Or the writers not being that old.
