Captain America & Bucky

A depressing, revealing, action packed origin story of Bucky Barnes, known for being the kid sidekick of Captain America. Turns out (according to this, anyway), the kid was less kid and more ward of the Army. He is trained, groomed, and recruited as a special soldier, and in this version, more bad-ass than Cap himself – Bucky didn’t need Super Soldier Serum – he just needed a reason.

I haven’t gotten chance to see the new movie Winter Soldier as of yet, so the last bit of this was a kind of a spoiler, but one I had kinda been expecting, anyway.

I guess Bucky is no longer the only comics character to have stayed dead…
