Re: James Buchanan Barnes aka The Winter Solider
I hate to come across as an Ultimates cheerleader, but I really liked how they portrayed Bucky in that. A childhood friend of Steve Rogers that used to look out for him as a kid. (protecting him from bullies, etc.) He tags along with Cap's platoon in a journalistic capacity as a promise to Steve's ailing mother. I think that would work well and also help along Roger's pre-SSS back-story. I hope that they spend a fair amount of time setting it up, show where Cap's patriotic morals come from, his great strategic mind and his drive to do his duty despite his frail physique. In my minds eye I can see a scene where Steve is being beat up by bigger kids in an alley and Bucky jumps in to help. Steve fights back too and uses a lid from a garbage can as a shield...maybe even throws it? Ya know, Bucky could even be the popular captain of their high school football team. They could be called the Patriots and have wings emblazoned on the sides of their helmets. Hmmmm....
It's a damn good time to be a comicbook fan!
