How to Stop James Bond From Getting Old (via @TheMorningNews)

If James Bond aged like the rest of us, explains Scott Meslow of the The Atlantic, he'd be well into his 90s, "license to kill revoked, flirting with the night nurses in a retirement home for old spies".

But the advantage of being a fictional character is that you never age physically -- but you do grow according to the times. Meslow compares the James Bonds of then (slapping young girls' behind, smoking cigarettes and sporting laser watches) to the James Bond of now (emotionally torn, more in line with the current political climate where villains are sometimes indistinguishable from the heroes) and opines what tomorrow's Bond should be like.
