Steve Rogers was given the chance to live a full and peaceful life. He was never frozen in ice and was allowed to live to a ripe old age as the appreciated hero of World War II.

At least, I think that's what happened, I never read that series.

He made at least two appearances, one in the main series while they were tracking down the heroes and they discover he is as old as he should be. The Cap tie in issue has him going about his day, even going to World War II group meetings and stuff.

However, since he wasn't in the final battle, he doesn't remember anything from it. Only a select few really remember House of M, such as Ms. Marvel, Spidey, and Luke Cage.

You're quite right. It was actually really touching, I thought. He had his small defeats and setbacks and his great victories thoughout the next sixty years, and in the end, he was comfortable, he'd led a good life, and though he had the same disappointments with the upcoming generation that every old man feels, his life was a good one.

It was a nice step outside of a lot of what was going on in House of M. Wanda gave him an especially kind fate.

Cap wasn't exempt, he simply lived on after World War II ,became a guest speaker and war hero for the next sixty years. Then he became an astronaut,a politician and ultimately a vocal foe of the state. He is walking down a street (as an old but still fit man) and the last we see of him is that a group of human thugs are about to mug him.

Agreed. Maybe I'm Overthinking The Writing Or Planning . I Fully Understand It's All MARKETING and Sales. Just Wondering If It's Clever or Obvious or If I'm Missing Something that'll string Something Together.

Actually, those were the heroes who remembered the House of M reality (Spidey, Cage, Emma Frost, etc.) and had tried to recruit him earlier. I'm guessing they went back to get one last look at him (for inspiration, perhaps) before going off to fight Magneto. \:\)
