My main complaint about this series was that I could never believe the Flag-Smashers were capable of taking on Bucky or even US Agent in a fight. Bucky is a trained assassin and far more experienced in combat and US Agent has military combat training. The Flag-Smashers were largely teenagers who took the super serum. Sure that may make you as strong as Bucky, but he has technique and fighting experience to trump these kids. Something needed to be done to level the playing field or explain how these kids suddenly had fighting skills downloaded to their brains like The Matrix. Or play up the lack of skill in the fight choreography, the flag-smashers aren't so great fighters but can keep taking punches and getting back up to interfere with Bucky.
