Ever since the popularity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s been a lot of confusion related to the real ages of our favorite defenders of Earth in the Marvel universe. Well, not anymore.
You might be wondering, what’s the real age of the Avengers, Iron Man, Captain America, and the lot?
In this article, I’m going to talk about the avengers, their roles, and what their current ages are at this point in time.
So, make sure you read this article till the end because it is going to leave you with all the knowledge of the real ages of Marvel’s Avengers characters.
The Original Avengers debuted in 1963 by Marvel as a group of incredible heroes sworn to defend the Earth from the mightiest foes.
Over the last 6 or so decades, a lot of new superhero inclusions have been made in the Marvel Avengers lineup.
In the 2000s, the MCU started and in the 2010s, MCU released their own version of Avengers.
There have been so many Avengers that have come and went over time that talking about all of them won’t be easy.
So, I’m going to be mainly talking about the Avengers that were both seen in the movies and the comics.
These Avengers have made their mark as the most popular and important characters in the Marvel comic book and Cinematic universe and have played their roles in the team protecting the world from the strongest foes in the universe.
How Old are the Avengers Characters?
The ages in the Marvel superheroes are drastically different because of unnatural and complex story plots.
And other members of the Avengers are basically alien species so human age doesn’t compare.
Well, whether they’re humans, superhumans, or aliens, here are the most important Avengers characters and their real ages.
The brains of the Avengers team, the owner of Stark Industries, Tony Stark has always been an incredibly entertaining Marvel superhero and has always had a ton of fans on his side.
He was born into great fortune and intellect but he also spent years making his amazing suits of armor and technologies.
In the comics as well as the MCU, Iron man is a 48-year-old Genius, Billionaire, Playboy, Philanthropist, who has his funny quips, and AI armor suits to beat any Avenger if they go rogue.
That’s why our beloved Tony Stark sports a salt and pepper beard in the movies and the comics.
The big green machine in the Hulk has been around for ages and is one of the most beloved superheroes in the Avengers team.
Bruce Banner is one of the top brains in the team and works with Tony Stark on most of the scientific businesses of the alliance.
Bruce Banner in real-time is actually 45 years old.
He has been the Hulk for quite a while and has perfected his state as Dr. Hulk in the MCU.
Although fans don’t like this transition much, he still can wreck things up and smash whenever he wills to do so.
Among all the superheroes in the team of the Avengers, Thor is definitely one of the most powerful, perhaps even the Strongest Avenger.
His Mjolnir and Stormbreaker Battle Axe give him the edge to defeat any villain and protect the nine realms.
Thor Odinson is more than 1500 years old in the current timeline of Marvel’s comic book universe as well as the Marvel Cinematic universe.
So, he’s definitely the oldest of the lot as well which is evident due to his incredible stories of hundreds and thousands of battles throughout his life.
Scarlet Witch is surely one of the most powerful superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe but in the comics, she is especially deadly when it comes to powers.
However, she wasn’t very old when she was inducted in the Avengers alliance.
At this time, she might be around 23-25 years of age and even now, she has become a master sorceress.
We can only imagine how much she will evolve in the upcoming years.
Vision has different origin stories in Marvel Cinematic Universe and the comic book universe.
In the comics, he was created with the body of the Human Torch but in the movies, he was born with the intellect of J.A.R.V.I.S and the power of the mind stone with the vision to protect humankind.
Both in the comics and the movies, Vision is a synthezoid being which means that he was created and was not born.
So, at this time in the Marvel universe, he would be anywhere from 3-5 years old.
Black Widow is a spicy, strong, and skilled fighter with amazing experience in hand-to-hand combat.
She was initially a Russian spy but then joined Iron Man and Captain America in their journey as an Avenger.
Her age is quite the talk of the town. Due to her amazing physique and youthful look, she looks around 28-30 years of age but in reality, this is due to super serum enhancements.

Carol Danvers become Captain Marvel by the destruction of the Light speed engine, got exposed to the energy of the tesseract, and ended up gaining amazing cosmic powers via the blood-transfusion of Yon-Rogg, making her a Kree-Human hybrid weapon of power.

She is actually just around 35 years old both in the MCU and the Marvel Comic Book Universe.
Scott-Lang, the holder of the power of Ant-man has the ability to become a giant and reduce to a microscopic or quantum level with the help of the Pym particles.
