* Over in the DCUniverse, the ComicBook/{{Justice Society|OfAmerica}} always fought in WWII (although some of its more popular members, such as Franchise/{{Superman}} or Franchise/WonderWoman, have been retconned out in various ways), so usually there is a plot device to have had them not age in the decades between the end of the war and the beginning of the "modern" age. This sometimes causes problems in regards to their non-super supporting cast, though only ComicBook/PostCrisis (when they were placed into the same sliding-timeline-only universe as their JLA cohorts). Pre-ComicBook/{{Crisis|on Infinite Earths}}, the JSA members all aged in real time on Earth-Two (while Earth-One, like the current DCU, has a sliding timescale). Thus, Earth-Two's Franchise/{{Batman}} and Comicbook/{{Catwoman}} had a daughter in the late 50s, who grew to adulthood by the 70s stories she debuted in. As the ComicBook/{{Huntress}}.

Added DiffLines:

* The Kate Kane version of ComicBook/{{Batwoman}} is already showing signs of this, as her origin is so tied to the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" era of USA policy regarding homosexuality in the military.

* {{Magneto}}'s backstory is so entrenched in Auschwitz by this point that writers struggle with keeping him as a Holocaust survivor and still keeping him and his contemporary Charles Xavier up to date. There have been attempts to retcon this, but they always SnapBack in the end. The solution seems to be giving Xavier and Magneto anti-aging treatments periodically.

** Creator/MarkMillar originally considered averting this, doing what has been done with other Marvel characters and shift the war he is associated to something more modern [[note]]This being 2000, it would have been the first US Persian Gulf War.[[/note]] when he was creating TheUltimates. Then he realized that the World War II imagery and the sense of gravitas and historical realism was too much to give up.
* ComicBook/NickFury is likewise always a WWII vet, but he got some SuperSoldier Serum-Lite (an annual injection of the Infinity Formula) that keeps him biologically the same age. (Referring to the main MarvelComics universe.)
* Comicbook/ThePunisher is always a [[TheVietnamWar Vietnam Vet]] no matter how many years have passed. He has died and come back to life twice (once when [[Comicbook/ThePunisherPurgatory he became the Angel-Punisher]], and once with the Franken-Castle scenario), with both returns de-aging him (the Angels wanting him to suffer more and the process naturally aiding his health respectively). As of 2011, The Punisher's origin has officially been updated to make him a Gulf War vet.

far less popular Gulf Wars. Compare this with the Punisher...

As of 2011, The Punisher's origin has officially been updated to make him a Gulf War vet. Given the dirty and unpopular public image of the Vietnam War, and the importance of this to Punisher's characterisation, an update to another unpopular and ultimately failed war makes sense.

* The secret agent {{Quiller}} was mentioned in the first book written in 1965 as a veteran of clandestine service during World War II. In the last book written in 1996 ''Quiller Balalaika'', he's still a secret agent. He's been an active (very active, as he beats up young guys constantly) for over 50 years.
