So far, both are the oldest figures in the world of Marvel superheroes.
Logan is long-lived thanks to his mutant healing factor and Steve got it from the Super Army Serum and travels through time. Well, who is the oldest among them? In the past two years, fans have witnessed the end of the fate of Logan and Captain America. Wolverine died in Logan and Captain America back in the past and allowed himself to live a normal and aging life after saving the universe in the Avengers: Endgame.
So, when the story of Logan and Steve was finished, they were Old Man Logan and Old Man Cap. Based on Logan’s birth year, Logan is older than Cap. However, the journey through time made by Steve at Endgame has closed the age gap. According to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, James Howlett — born Logan, was born in 1832 in the Northwest Territories of Canada. His healing factor and mutant claws appeared in 1845 when he was 13, when he ran away from home and became a soldier. Logan then fought in the American Civil War, two World Wars and Vietnam. Years later, although it was not clear because of the chaos of the X-Men timeline, Wolverine joined X-Men. He helped save the mutants from extinction in the post-apocalyptic future X-Men: Days of Future Past. However, Old Man Logan finally took his last breath in the alternative future of 2029 in the film Logan. This means Logan is 197 years old when he dies.
Steve Roger was born on July 4, 1918 in Brooklyn, New York. In 1942, the small patriot with a big heart entered the US Army and got the Super Army Serum. He later turned into a superhero named Captain America. After fighting in World War II, he froze on arctic ice in 1945 and was resurrected before The Avengers was formed in 2012. In Avengers: Endgame, Cap was 105 years old when the Avengers defeated Thanos in 2023. However, after returning the Stone of Immortality and exploring time, Steve decided to return to 1945 and live happily with his true love, Peggy Carter. That means, if 78 years were added between 1945-2023, old Cap was 183 years old when he handed over his shield to Sam Wilson at the end of Avengers: Endgame.
So, Wolverine is older than Captain Marvel when fans last saw it. However, Logan died in 2029. If Steve can live after 2029, then he will be 189 years old, still 8 years younger than Logan. However, because it can’t be said when Steve will die, if he can survive for another 10 years, then Steve will become Marvel’s oldest hero, not just the oldest Avenger. What’s your own theory?
