Background[edit | edit source]
Comics[edit | edit source]
James "Bucky" Barnes was an ally of Captain America and assisted him on various missions as a member of the Howling Commandos. On one mission, he was seemingly killed. However, he survived and was frozen, much like Captain America.
After being revived, he received a bionic arm, but lost his memory in turn. Because of this, he was trained to be an assassin and given the code name Winter Soldier. He eventually fought with his former partner, which lead to Captain America restoring Bucky's memories. This prompted him to rejoin his colleague. Sometime later, Bucky inherited Captain America's mantle after Steve Rogers' supposed demise.
Rogers was later brought back and Bucky became the Winter Soldier once more.
Marvel Cinematic Universe[edit | edit source]
James "Bucky" Barnes was the best friend of Captain America and assisted him on various missions as a member of the Howling Commandos. On one mission to capture Arnim Zola, he was seemingly killed. However, he survived and taken in by Hydra, replacing his mutilated arm with a bionic arm and finished the brainwashing he had started. Because of this, he was trained to be an assassin and given the code name Winter Soldier. He was placed in suspended animation until Hydra needed him over the years.
After Nick Fury had become suspicious of Project Insight, the Winter Soldier was sent to kill the director. Due to his success, Steve Rogers battled with him multiple times, eventually learning the Winter Soldier was his old friend. During their battle aboard the Helicarrier, Rogers attempted to remind Bucky who he was, and succeeded, as Bucky saved his friend.
Afterwards, he went to the Captain America museum exhibit to learn more about his past.
