X-Men and the Avengers appear equally good answers. X-Men meets the 37-year criterion but is a year off on the release date, Avengers hits the release date but was only 36 years old at that point.

165. Gotta be summer. Lightning is the top cause of weather related deaths in the U.S., and peaks in the summer. Then you have tornados, heat related deaths among the elderly, some flash-flooding . . .

Heat-related deaths outpace fatalities in several other severe weather categories. Based on a 10-year average from 1992-2001, excessive heat claimed 219 lives each year. By contrast, floods killed 88; tornadoes, 57; lightning, 52; and hurricanes, 15. Be aware of dangerous heat conditions by following NWS's Mean Heat Index.

That blurb (with a broken link), is here (http://www.nws.noaa.gov/headline_archive.php) on the National Weather Service page. So yeah, it's definitely summer.
