Good thing we got a revolution of Marvel films this decade rather than later or they could never get away with that idea.
It's not unrealistic that Howard Stark was involved in WWII yet fathered a child in the late 60s. Even if he had been 35 in 1945, he would only have been 55 in 1965. Plenty of men father children into their fifties, sixties and beyond, so that is not unrealistic. Sometimes it seems that the richer a man is, the longer he goes on having children. Many billionaires keep churning out kids with their younger wives up through their golden years.
