I think it's set in our current day myself and like you said it only "feels like" it's set older (or newer as the case may be). Personally I think that's the charm of this world.
Between First Wave #1 and Bat/Savage oneshot we have...
1920's: Wonder Wheel, Airships
1930's: Doc Savage (Batman, Avenger, Wildcat & Canary eventually)
1940's: Spirit, Blackhawks, Rafi's Finest
1950's: police cars, jet cargo planes, flash cameras, Ed Norton,
1960's: hair curlers, fro combs
1970's: football jersey's & helmets, glass framed high rise apartments
1980's: small cassette voice recorders, hazmat suits
1990's: cordless phones, televison graphics, police tape
2000's: purple mohawk haired kids, newspapers that cost 75 cents
It's a world where all this stuff exists without them being dated. I like it myself.
