MAJOR SPOILERS POLL OF THE WEEK

Major Spoilers Poll of the Week: Adventures in Time and Space (and age) – Major Spoilers – Comic Book Reviews, News, Previews, and Podcasts

Traveling from one place to another takes up a lot of time, and honestly, that time could be spent doing other things. Over the last year, I’ve aged three months just for travel alone. While time travel would allow us to skip that aging bit, we’re still going to age at a normal rate over time.
