    We have all talked about it, but it has been done. Chip Zdarsky has written a nifty comic mini-series which details what would happen in Marvel characters didn't maintain their same age in a "sliding time scale". As such, the series details, "On this Earth, many Marvel heroes such as Spider-Man began their career at the time they were first published in comics, and are unaffected by the Sliding Timescale. Additionally, one of the major divergent events in this world is Tony Stark's decision to be more involved with the Vietnam War as Iron Man, which escalated tensions between the US and the Soviet Union and led not only to an extended Vietnam War, but a war in 1984 where nuclear missiles destroyed Allentown, Pennsylvania while many US superheroes disappeared to Battleworld. This War was won by the US at some undetermined time before 1995...."

    I would like to see how the other heroes age in this world...I imagine Cap staying young through the super soldier serum.

    Old Man Parker?

    Apparently the Cliff Notes version is Captain America hasn't aged, but Tony Stark is considered a real a**hole, extending the Vietnam War and has launched a hostile takeover of the Future Foundation, a company led by Peter Parker, Reed Richards and Otto Octavian. Otto Octavian married Aunt May. Sue Richards dumped Reed Richards for Namor.

    As mentioned, consider that by the 1980s, during the Secret Wars, this is what he looks like:

    According to the series in 2019, Peter Parker is 72 years, making him roughly 15 years in 1962 whe he first gained his powers.

    Well, there is always being a lot of hint through the years that as a consequences of his powers he ages somewhat better than a normal human, not a wolverine level but in some stories he reach the 110 years but he look more like an healthy 80years old person
