So just who is James “Bucky” Barnes a.k.a. The Winter Soldier? We explore his origins and here is the Top 10 Facts about the Winter Soldier.

Like most comic book characters, there are often different versions to a character’s past. We have chosen to  follow the storyline that unfolded in Captain America (vol. 5). The series was best known for reviving Captain America’s World War II partner Bucky as Winter Soldier in issue #6, the presumed death of Steve Rogers in issue #25, and Bucky taking over the mantle of Captain America in issue #34.

  1. I bet 1000 bucks this movie has a big twist!!! What it is? Eh after Ironman 3 my guess is as good as anyone’s. I would like to see modern Redskull show up. Although this is supposed to be a lead in for AV2 sooooo…… Perhaps a jail break scenario? Very curious to see what goes down.

    • I’d hope it does have a twist outside of the one comic book fans know of because otherwise, how boring would that be? That’s a massive reason I loved IM3, it took a story that we’ve all known and read and changed things around to keep us all on our toes instead of being bored throughout and turning to someone and telling them what happens next.

    • Victor Krumluk (ex-KGB and current Mall Cop) is actually pretending to be Bucky Barnes to lure Captain America into a trap set by Black Widow, who has been working for the Spetsnas the whole time. What a twist!

      • And then she will tell him that he is the clone of original Cap.
        BW: we couldn’t restore yourself the brain was already dead but we could reanimate some cells and made a few clones. Remember that room and a nurse at the end of the first movie? We’ve used hypnosis to inesrt some of the lost memories. We made sure that you will be in more comfortable place and maybe even restore your memory more. And maybe you will known that you were a spy for us all this time, you needed to get the formula for us, you are formula. And SHIELD there were never such government organisation its driven by few rich as hell people including your enemy Red Skull. They wanted to get their hands on all supernatural stuff and to know exactly their place in this universe, their enemies, their allies. Thanks to you and that cube we know whats coming and how to stop it.
        Cap: Well f**k!
        BW: Oh and…meet your daughter, son and his boyfriend.
