* ComicBook/NickFury is, like Cap, 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.)

** 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. One might also wonder if the relatively uncontroversial war against the Nazis makes it easier to give Captain America his moral centre than the far less popular Gulf Wars. Compare this with the Punisher...

** And the Vietnam veteran Seymour Skinner. By now he should be as old as Grampa was at the start of the show!

This trope is invoked every time you see an adult in their forties, fifties, or sixties complain about the music the kids are listening to these days. The original fans of rock and roll, even assuming they were all fifteen back when rock began, would be in their sixties today and anyone who grew up listening to punk rock in the late 70s would think today's music tame by comparison.

* 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}}.

* 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.
