Steve Rogers saved the world on a number of events, sacrificed his happiness and misplaced rattling close to everybody he liked. As such, it was tough to begrudge his choice on the finish of Avengers: Endgame to make use of the journey to return the Infinity Stones as a possibility to journey again in time and dwell in home bliss with Peggy Carter, the love of his life. After taking the great distance spherical to get again to the current, Rogers was an aged man. Nonetheless, for somebody chronologically pushing a hundred-years-old, he was in comparatively fine condition as a result of long-term results of the super-soldier serum.
However now followers are theorizing that it wasn’t simply the serum that preserved him and that Rogers is likely to be functionally immortal. Not simply that, however there’s an opportunity that he might regain his youth.
Now, I’ve obtained to say that Rogers definitely didn’t look immortal within the finale of Endgame, so the place’s this idea coming from? Nicely, a few of it’s based mostly on Steve being worthy sufficient to wield Mjolnir when battling Thanos and that persevering with to grant him energy. This idea is predicated within the one-shot comedian ebook 2099: Manifest Future. Right here, Rogers is frozen as soon as extra, waking up within the yr 2099 and assembly Miguel O’Hara (aka Spider-Man 2099). Thor’s absent on this time, so Cap takes Mjolnir, which is proven to offer whoever wields it everlasting life. Maybe these powers stay with him even after he’s not bodily wielding the hammer?
One other manner Rogers might stay alive is that if the MCU introduces “The Apples of Idunn,” which assist maintain the Asgardian characters from ageing. Although truthfully, them being current within the MCU appears unlikely on condition that Odin was clearly ageing considerably by the point he died in Thor: Ragnarok.
However might all this lay the seeds for Chris Evans’ Steve Rogers to make a triumphant return in the future? Presumably, however Evans has repeatedly stated that he’s executed with the character, that he’s glad he obtained such an awesome ending and it’d really feel like a cash-in to deliver him again. Heroes like Iron Man and Captain America endlessly returning is an effective way to kill all pressure in your fictional universe, so I hope Marvel Studios honors the dramatic affect of Avengers: Endgame and in the event that they do return, it ought to solely be by way of small cameo appearances right here and there.
