Marvel’s Avengers Motion Comic Features The Winter Soldier’s Debut

Next week, Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier will bring his own unique skill to Marvel’s Avengers when the game’s latest update finally makes him a playable character. Although the DLC marks its avengers debut, Bucky already has ties to at least two members of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. And thanks to a new animated comic (via IGN), fans can get a better sense of how these two characters shaped him into the man he is today.

Bucky (voiced by Scott Porter) narrates the video and takes viewers back to where his story begins. Naturally, that was in the 1940s during World War II, when he was Captain America’s sidekick. Bucky explains how Cap was “everything” he dreamed of becoming as a soldier. And though they both paid the ultimate price for their cause, Bucky’s sacrifice led him down a much darker path.

You can watch the animated comic in the player below.

After the Soviets captured him and gave him a new metal arm, Bucky was forced to train in the Red Room. There he meets and falls in love with the future Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff. However, once their handlers found out about their relationship, they immediately put Bucky to work as the Winter Soldier. He spent the next decades assassinating various targets in a series of “waking nightmares” between periods of cryosleep. Eventually, Bucky resurfaced after the tragic events of A-Day and the news that Steve Rogers had apparently been killed in action. But it wasn’t long before he was forced to serve a new master in the form of Monica Rappaccini. And for the next two years, Monica tasked him with rounding up the Inhumans for AIM’s murderous experiments.

What’s new from Square Enix avengers The update finally gives Bucky his freedom as well as his own chain of missions. Naturally, he remains haunted by the actions of his past. But as the next chapter of his story unfolds, Steve and Nat will be with him every step of the way, reminding him of his ability to do good in the world.

The Winter Soldier will join Marvel’s Avengers‘ character list on November 29.
