Steve Rogers most trusted partner and a former Captain America, Bucky Barnes, must tackle his greatest challenge yet as Winter Soldier #1 hits store shelves everywhere this February! After going toe to toe with the Nazis and being assumed dead for decades, Bucky Barnes went through hell and back as the Soviet Union rebuilt his war torn body into their own one man army known to all as the Winter Soldier. But what if he wasn’t the only one?

From the blockbuster creative team behind Captain America, Ed Brubaker and Butch Guice send Bucky back into the shadows to take down the remaining ex-Russian sleeper agents and dismantle their diabolical plot. Teamed with the Black Widow, the former Captain America will have his hands full when he finds out that he trained them all AND that Doctor Doom is involved! With the entire Marvel Universe thinking he’s dead, Bucky will have to tackle this threat head on with limited resources. Get in on all the action this February in Winter Soldier #1!

    If you make a bionicle arm, why go throu all the trouble of making all the mucles? With servers and hydrolics you could make the arm bend in all crazy directions and still keep it strong and stable!
    Just a thought from the doc.

    I love gun toting super/anti- heroes but I don’t think I can take him seriously with a name like Bucky.

        Winter Soldier is a fine name….considering it’s origins but maybe he should have changed his name since he doesn’t work for the Soviets anymore.

        But regardless the “Winter Soldier” is a myth/legend , that’s got to be an advantage of sorts.

          I always took it as a reference to Thomas Paine, who during the America Revolution in the mid-1700’s spoke of soldiers who enlisted during the warm months but went AWOL as soon as things got wintry, i.e. “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country.”

          By that logic, Bucky as The Winter Soldier is for all intents & purposes, the eternal warrior (which Valiant still has trademarked, mind you) and poetically is destined to fight forever, no matter the season. It is, to my ears, a damn cool name.
