Query: Doesn’t it seem reasonable that in the MCU, Maria Stark might not have been Howard Stark’s first wife? OR, if she was, he might not have married her until later in his own life? Either way, there was probably a significant age difference, right? I mean, if MCU Howard was born in 1917, and Tony was born in 1970, then Howard was 53 when Tony was born. So I should think Maria almost certainly wasn’t the same age as Howard.
I don’t know, there’s something in the tags about seeing Maria Stark in Agent Carter and I just…disagree? I mean, even if Howard married an 18 year old right after the war in 1945 (already a 10 year age difference), she would still be in her forties in the 1970s. Which…isn’t impossible, but seems less likely statistically speaking.
Also this may be relevant to my never-ending Howard/Peggy writing saga.
