..but Banshee worked for Interpol for years before becoming an X-Man. ?How could he be only 40?

I'm not trying to be argumentative but......how it the possibility of him being in Interpol for years negate the possibility that he's in his 40's????

We dont know how old Sean was when he entered Interpol.

We do know he entered Interpol after graduating from Trinity College in Dublin.

Now I dont know how old the average graduating age at that College is but they start admitting students as early as age 16.

Its a good guess thast he could have been working for Interpol in his early 20's.

I doubt very much that he went straight from collage and aced all his training as a government agent to enter Interpol at age 20. ? That would make Banshee a better trained agant than Nick Fury.

I didn't say 40, I said late forties.

No offense but the reply was to Stovokor2000.

So I never said you said anything.

..unless you're a duel.

well I think I said mid 40's in my first reply as well since I was quoting his post.

So lets say he joins Interpol at 34 and leaves between 36 and 28 years of age,

Is he aging backwards? ¿:laugh:

Sorry but I'm still seeing Banshee as a man in his late 50's early 60's.

Whoops, so noted.

In any case, I still don't see how he couldn't have been those things before becoming an X-Man. If he joined the X-Men at around 40, that's about two decades of experience before X-Men. He joined Interpol after graduating, quit upon discovering his wife's death, joined the NYPD and then went undercover to infiltrate the Factor 3 before joining the X-Men. All perfectly reasonable.

Why is everyone stuck on him being only 40?
His abilities don't require him to be phyically strong or that young. ¿Why is it not possable for him to be older?
Why is it not reasonable for him to join the X-Men at 50?

You took the words right out of my mouth, Avenger. ?:p

But seriously
Disney isn't conducive to a masculine image.

Disney has pretty much said they're staying out of the creative side of Marvel, this is strictly a business deal out of which Disney was more interested in their on-screen features and distribution of content - they needed more boys programming for their alternate Disney XD channel (which is more geared for boys). Books like X-Force (arguably one of the bloodiest books currently on the stands besides the Max imprint) wouldn't still be being produced if they had a problem with it. Besides, the comics side of Marvel is a drop in the bucket to the business deal, pretty inconsequential to them.

Warner Bros has been partnered with DC for a long time now, it doesn't seem to being impairing their comics side, and has only helped their animated features. I would expect probably the same will hold true for Marvel.

The average person changes careers 3-5 times in their working lifetime. Why is it not possible for him to have been in Interpol and the NYPD both before joining the X-Men and not have him be a grandfather before doing it?

Because aren't you required to work a certain amount of years in both to earn your retirement pension? ?I believe the minimum is 25 years of service on the force. ¿Then add to that he would also need a few years to earn his teaching degree.

It's nice to be a superhero but it doesn't pay the bills or offer a retirement plan with a 401k.
Think about it, who's paying for Wolverine to fly to Madipoor every other month?  It sure ain't Xavier.

Who ever said Banshee retired from Interpol? He quit. Banshee also managed to pull money from hidden accounts from various terrorist organizations including Factor 3, Hydra and others. I'm not exactly sure what Banshee's teaching credentials are, I'm assuming Emma Frost and Xavier took care of all that background work during the time he was headmaster at Xavier School.

Several X-Men are independently wealthy, including Angel, Emma Frost, Psylocke, and of course Xavier himself. Wolverine has money invested in the Landau, Luckman, and Lake firm which gives him enough to do some world travel and insure his adopted daughter Amiko is properly cared for.

I've always been under the impression that the X Men got some kind of allowance... None of them had jobs beside teaching at the school... Maybe it's a very Xpensive school...

I must have been sleepy.Here it is corrected

"lets say he joins Interpol at 24 and leaves between 36 and 38 years of age, joins the NYPD and remains for at least 3 years, that still gives him about 9 years with the X-men......and I doubt he was with them that long as the passege of time goes in the Marvel u."

If you want a really messed up time line and Origin check out Logan's. It seems that mostly every story written about his past always turns out to be crap...
