So let me see if I've got this straight...you can accept a universe inhabited
by guys with spider powers, Norse gods, an ageless super soldier, a wasp woman,
shape changers, a big green guy, and you don't think that there could be a
plausible explanation for kids being of an unusual age.
See, all you really had to do was explain it reasonably, and I'm there.
