** A few of Marvel's most famous heroes and villains are quite era-specific. Captain America is an actual UsefulNotes/WorldWarII PropagandaHero (albeit one made ''before'' America's entry of the war, i.e. premature anti-fascism), Red Skull is an actual Nazi, as is Baron Zemo, Arnim Zola among others. Since Captain America was thawed out of ice after more than a decade in the Silver Age, his de-thawing merely gets time-shifted and updated with the period of time in which he was a HumanPopsicle becoming extended. ComicBook/{{Magneto}}, who became an actual Holocaust survivor under Creator/ChrisClaremont's run in TheSeventies, cannot quite make use of the same gimmick, so any contemporary X-Men story going forward will age him considerably. ''ComicBook/IronMan'' originated as anti-communist capitalist ScienceHero, requiring much SettingUpdate in his new stories (the MCU updates him to TheWarOnTerror).

** The fact that the majority of Marvel's heroes, and the majority of the action therefore, is set in, and takes place in New York becomes this. Especially the case for the street-level heroes such as Spider-Man, The Punisher, and Daredevil. The rising costs of living, and greater gentrification, and the historical low crime rates of TheNineties and TheOughties makes the superhero careers of some of them very improbable and unlikely in terms of verisimilitude (especially Daredevil and The Punisher, since they largely fight non-powered villains, whereas Spider-Man's super-powered villains are purely fantastic) especially since TheBigRottenApple era, which justified much of the early action is gone. The Punisher as a VigilanteMan in New York makes even less sense with the very tough anti-gun laws of the city. Ben Grimm, a Jewish origin WorkingClassHero from Brooklyn who in his youth was part of the Yancy Street Gang is more or less a GrandfatherClause since the specific neighbourhood he is associated with is gentrified.

** Much of what is considered the classic Spider-Man story setting, i.e. Peter worried about his Aunt May, balancing his superhero career with his studies, and making a living by taking pictures of Spider-Man for J. Jonah Jameson's Daily Bugle is pretty much hard to do realistically. On account of rising costs of living, Peter can't believably operate as a low-income struggling scrapper in New York, without some form of FriendsRentControl. The development of digital and smartphones, makes the idea that Spider-Man could only be captured by a single shutterbug with inside knowledge hard to accept[[note]]In the era of film cameras where they had to be handled manually with ISO, F-Stop, and special film stock to capture light quickly, and at night, it was believable[[/note]], and the lower crime rates makes the drama of Peter balancing work with personal life feel disjointed. Recent comics, under Dan Slott have actually [[ReimaginingTheArtifact updated much of this]] but these elements are so iconic that they remain the most widely known parts of his mythos, and was adapted intact in the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy'' mostly via AnachronismStew.
