After years of being Captain America and living as a man out of his own time, Captain America was ready to pass on his shield and settle down. So when he saw the chance to go back to his own time and live a relaxed life with his love, he took it. While it is a resolution which fits Steve Rogers but the more technical effects of his time travel have baffled fans. So much so that even the writers and directors can’t agree on Steve’s effects of time travel.
One of the most common question related to Captain America’s time travel is why didn’t he try to change some of the most horrifying events in human history. But there are some less intense questions which have perplexed the fandom as well. It is regarding the people who knew about his time travelling. But the answer to this is a little tricky
Who Knew About Captain America’s Time Travel?
It was seen in Avengers: Endgame that the Avengers went back in time and met their past selves. Captain America even ended up interacting with his past self. Right here we need to understand that regular time travelling rules don’t apply to the MCU. As a result, when Captain America went back to Peggy Carter and stayed there, the other Captain America was still alive and being a hero. To be fair, Captain America must have been everywhere at some point so it’s not possible for people who knew Steve to ignore the similarities.
But all of the above being said, it can be assumed that Peggy Carter knew about his time travel. Also their kids must have known about it too since they must have noticed later on in life that a guy looking like their father was running around saving lives. It’s also possible that Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. revealed the existence of those kids.
People From S.H.I.E.L.D And The Avengers Knew Too
As for people outside his family, it’s not unreasonable to assume that Nick Fury might have known by chance. Especially since Peggy was one of the founders of S.H.I.E.L.D. So Steve could have crossed paths with Fury at some point and explained why there was two of them. At the end of his life; Falcon, Bucky, Hulk and the rest of the heroes knew about his alternate timeline for sure.
The topic of time travel in the MCU is confusing and it will no doubt continue to baffle fans further. But people should lay this Captain America time travelling saga to rest. The aim of sending steve back was to ensure that he got the life he wanted to lead with Peggy. This was his happy ending.
