It seems that even by comic standards Franklin Richards ages far slower than any other character. I mean, Kitty Pryde was introduced as a fourteen year old several years after Franklin's birth, and was a young adult while Frank was still a child. Was Frank actually still an infant when Kitty first appeared. I mean, it just isn't making that much sense.
Franklin Richards: Does He Age??
Alex has made it to college & I believe Julie is in her late teens... but I don't think Jack & Katie have been seen in a looong time :(
" Franklin's friends in Power Pack have all aged to adulthood."
Anyway, don't get me started on the ages of comic characters. It winds me up so much.
he does and doesnt, thats about the only way to put it. in otherwords he is whatever age whatever
writer feels like at the time, usually young. same with Val. Power Pack isnt a good guage either
since they appear in one in continuity series aged while in another at the same time as children
(not to mention their entire own continuity fell into an abyss somewhere apparently- Kofi anyone?)

Power Pack recent appearances as children were in Marvel Adventures. This is probably why you are confused.
other that time travel franklin and val will always stay bellow 10. that is until Fantastic Four One More Day buh buh buh!!!! heh dramatic music in the form of buhs :p"
haha Fantastic Four One More Day would be a story that symbolizes the end of good comics and will eliminate 100% of readers. In fact, Fox would probably sue because the movies they are making for F4 would be useless people would hate the characters so much.
" his warping abilities warp all individuals perceptions. in actuality he is time itself an choses this form :D "@Edamame said:
" He can will himself to be ageless. "i like these explanations and actually i think they should incorporate them into the book, like have Reed note that he ages alot slow then he should be and that it's because he dosen't want to grow up because he views the adult world as dangerous and even with his powers he dosen't feel safe and that his parents won't be their to protect him, but as he slowly gets older his views change and he becomes more confident, so speeds his age up to what it should be, but he can still age slow or stay the same age as long as he wants
If he gets older, he get's more powerful and will actually use his powers... then he becomes too powerful and Marvel would have to do something as a plot device (see Superman, Sentry, Spawn, Jean Gray etc)
Keep him as a kid... or there will be consequesnces!
I like to think that Hyperstorm has something to do with his aging... Remember he went to the future with his Grandfather and grew to become Psi-lord and when he came back Hyperstorm de-aged him back to the age he was before he left, maybe Hyperstorm knew Franklin would be a threat to his plans and psionically slowed or stopped Franklin's aging... That would be kinda awesome because they would need a being with power which matches that of Hypestorm or Franklin, like Rachel Grey, to reverse the process...
