SKU: 14098 Category:


James Buchanan “Bucky” Barnes…sidekick to Captain America, later a Russian operative named Winter Soldier and most recently, Cap’s replacement when he was assassinated. Barnes’ left arm is a cybernetic prosthetic with superhuman strength and enhanced reaction time. The arm can function when not in contact with Barnes and can discharge bolts of electrical energy from its palm. The arm can discharge an EMP causing electronics to either shutdown or become useless. The use of Barnes’ EMP is shown when Barnes uses it to shutdown a Nick Fury LMD and when he attempts to use it on Iron Man. The arm has a holographic function to disguise it as a flesh and blood arm. After Steve Rogers is assassinated in the aftermath of Marvel’s Civil War, Tony Stark tells Winter Soldier (Bucky) that Steve Rogers had left Stark a letter asking Stark to watch over Barnes and that the mantle of Captain America should continue. Stark suggests that Barnes become the new Captain America. Barnes agrees to become the new Captain America only if Stark guarantees him complete autonomy. As this arrangement is illegal under the Superhuman Registration Act, Stark keeps his support of the new Captain America secret. As Captain America, Barnes wears a new costume laced with adamantium, and carries a pistol and a combat knife. Barnes’ first major adventure as the new Captain America has him, Falcon, Sharon Carter and S.H.I.E.L.D. fighting against the original Red Skull and Dr. Faustus who have revived the 1950s Captain America in a plot to secure one of their pawns attaining the U.S. presidency.
