Was "he" supposed to be in Iron Man #20?

I don't want to give anything away, but was Iron Man #20 (out today) the first appearance of a certain person of interest outside of his own venue?

SPOILERS BELOW in invisi-text (though context will probably give it away anyway):

The person of interest, of course, is Steve Rogers, the original Captain America, who shows up, with little fanfare, to help Pepper, Rhodey, Maria Hill, Black Widow, Bucky, and Thor revive Tony.

This reminds me of when Hal Jordan started showing up in various DC books, such as the Countdown to Infinite Crisis one-shot (and, IIRC, an issue of Blue Beetle featuring the Justice League) before Green Lantern: Rebirth was finished. (Barry Allen's a little different, since he officially came back during Final Crisis and only then had his very own Rebirth mini-series.)
