According to the dictionary, a generation is defined as "all of the people born and living at about the same time, regarded collectively" and is further explained as "the average period during which children are born and grow up, becoming adults and beginning to have their own children."
The first generation to be created was the Lost Generation, which includes people who were born between 1883 and 1900. Subsequent generations include the G.I. Generation, the Baby Boomers, Generation X, the Millennials, and finally, Generation Z.
They've each had a role in making society what it is today, and they each have certain characteristics associated with them.
The original Marvel Comics company, which at the time was known as Timely Comics, was founded in 1939 during the Silent Generation. In 1961, during the latter part of the Baby Boomers' generation, they changed their name to what we know today. Many of the characters, at least the popular ones, were created a long time ago, but their fan base is ever increasing.
