Default Re: The Official X-Related Questions and Answers Thread

Hey everyone
This is my first post here. I've been reading old and current issues of X-men and X-men related books for a little over a year. Which is enough time to have read A LOT, but still only make a dent in everything that's out there.
Anyways, I have a question for some of the more hardcore fans about the timeline:

Just how much time is supposed to have passed from the first issue to present day? It's been about 40 years in real life, right? So if Cyclops was a teenager when the comics started, how old is he supposed to be now? Obviously not in his 50's? I'm assuming he's supposed to be about 30?
And is that length of time the same throughout all of Marvel comics? (ie: Has the same amount of time passed for Spiderman that has for the X-men, since they're live through the same events?)

Just curious if anyone has an answer, or just a little info about the whole 'comic time/ real life time' subject.

Thanks a lot!
