Re: So was anything done to Bucky in the first film?
It would be incredibly easy for them to flashback in Cap 2 to Bucky on that table and show him being experimented on to explain how he'd survive the fall and any other possible augmentations to his strength, etc.
I'd say there's a good chance we'll see that.
