The healing factor also did such a good job of regenerating his cells that one time it also reversed his aging, returning him to a much younger form in his 20s or 30s. Not quite sure how he aged back to his current state. They had also had a story in that era towards the end of his series where they showed us that like 20 years in the future, Deathstroke and Hawkman hadn't aged and were fighting some kind of immortal war.
