Captain America Poster #28 w Bucky vs Hydra by Jim Steranko


SKU: 13506 Category:


The original Bucky, James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes, was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby as a sidekick character in Captain America Comics #1 (cover-dated March 1941), published by Timely Comics (Marvel’s 1940s predecessor). Decades later, the original Bucky was brought back from supposed death as the Winter Soldier and then he becomes Captain America in 2008 after Steve Rogers was presumed to be dead, before returning as the Winter Soldier once more. Hydra is a world-wide subversive organization dedicated to global domination. At its height, Hydra was the most extensive, powerful, and dangerous such organization in history. Hydra is almost entirely composed of men, with some notable exceptions, such as former member Lara Brown, the daughter of a Supreme Hydra, and so-called Madame Hydra, who later became known as the Viper. Hydra agents wear green costumes with cowls concealing the entire head except for the mouth and chin. Their organization takes its name from the many-headed serpent-like monster known for its ability to grow two heads immediately to replace any head that was severed. Hydra prides itself on its ability to regroup and rebuild itself, allegedly mightier than before, after any major defeat. Indeed, the organization has now endured for four decades.
