He's Captain America's best friend - and his worst - enemy. The Winter Soldier is pretty confusing.
Born in England and living in Florida since my teens, I’d still be in the Sunshine State if I hadn’t met the perfect woman in 2008. She lived in Durham; now I live in Durham too, with an amazing wife and two wonderful dogs. I've been hooked on movies and comics starting with an issue of Justice League of America when I was six. My CV includes ten years as a small-town reporter, twenty fantasy short stories sold, magazine articles on everything from tractors to mortgage foreclosure and five film reference books. The most recent books are Sex for Dinner, Death for Breakfast on the James Bond films, and Now and Then We Time Travel, an encyclopedic look at time travel on screen.
