Default Re: Why doesn't Cap seem to age?

Welcome to world of comics.

Characters don't age cause comics go by a sliding timeline. 40 years ago, it was established that Cap was frozen up til the 60s. Fast-foward to today, and that's been retconned to say he's been frozen up til the 80s. In another 20-30 years, the timeline will move up to say he was unfrozen in the 90s.

These characters can't age. When they do, its one age per every 10 real life years. And when they age too much, the comics will retcon their ages. Spidey will always be in his mid-20s, Stark in his mid 30s, Cap in his mid 30s.
