How old is Tony Stark?

Marissa brought up a major hole I'd completely missed in Iron Man, movie version (+ Iron Man 2, and Captain America for that matter.)

If Stark Sr. helped in WW2, then he's, what, 25 in 1945? If he had Tony at age 40, then Tony Stark would be 50 in 2010--- much older than portrayed (and not leaving a lot of room for the older mentor/villain.)

It looks like the continuity is supposed to be that Howard dies when Tony is 17, with the movies "more than two decades" later. So Tony is approaching 40, but that means he had to be born when his father was close to 50.
