07.11.15 - Or perhaps he's wondering why someone would shoot a man before throwing him out of the plane.

I'm Gotham's reckoning. It'll end the ball of damns you've all been living on. A necessary evil.

05.11.15 - You fight like a younger man, there's nothing held back. It's admirable, but mistaken. I am the League of Shadows.

Powers/Strengths/Weakness
powers: Artificially Enhanced Physiology: Barnes was one of many prisoners of war used in Zola's quest to recreate the Super Soldier Serum. There were no apparent effects at the time of his rescue by Steve Rogers, but the changes wrought on Barnes' body were sufficient to let him survive plunging into an icy river at the bottom of a fall that should have killed him. Zola further refined Barns' body in the Winter Soldier Program, ultimately creating an enhanced soldier with physical abilities equal to that of Captain America- albeit from a stronger starting point.

Superhuman Strength: As the Winter Soldier, Barnes's physical strength is immensely enhanced to the early levels of superhuman condition by a series of treatments performed on him by HYDRA scientists. He has used his legs and right arm to strike enemies with tremendous force and his physical might is easily on par with Captain America but was matched and exceeded when he faced off against Black Panther and Spider-Man respectively.

Bionic Arm: HYDRA removed the remnants of his severed left arm and replaced the missing limb with a cybernetic one. The bionic arm gives him extraordinary superhuman strength superior to that of Captain America, though not quite on par with that of Spider-Man. Winter Soldier was able to rip open a S.H.I.E.L.D. armored SUV, rip apart Falcon's EXO-7 suit, and smash concrete by punching it.

Enhanced Speed: Winter Soldier's speed is tremendously enhanced beyond the peak of human potential, moving into the early levels of superhuman condition. Bucky's speed is equal to both Black Panther and Captain America, as he was able to stay ahead of them with a slight head start . In combat, he can easily keep up with the extremely agile Black Widow and Black Panther.

Enhanced Durability: Winter Soldier's bones and muscles are apparently vastly denser and more resilient than a normal human's. He even managed to survive a seemingly fatal fall from immense heights into Daube River in the Swiss Alps. Arnim Zola's further experiments greatly fortified his physique to the extent that he routinely leaps from significant heights onto hard surfaces and lands without any apparent injury.

Enhanced Stamina: Winter Soldier's musculature produces far less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human, allowing him to exert himself at peak capacity for hours before tiring.

Enhanced Agility: Winter Soldier's vastly enhanced agility is superior to even Olympic gold medalists. He could quickly leap on top of midsize cars in a single bound and do complicated acrobatic flips to avoid gunfire into cover.

Enhanced Reflexes: Winter Soldier's reflexes are enhanced to extraordinary levels. His reflexes are responsive enough to catch Captain America's shield being thrown at him at a high velocity. He was also able to catch enemy grenades thrown at him, dodge fire from Falcon's Steyr SPPs, and leap on top of a moving car accelerating towards him with pinpoint accuracy.

Regenerative Healing Factor: Winter Soldier's body is able to heal with extraordinary speed and efficiency beyond a regular human being, though he is unable to regenerate missing limbs.
strengths:
Master Martial Artist: Winter Soldier is an extremely skilled and formidable martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant, excelling at improvisation and weapons handling. Originally, Barnes was a three-time YMCA welterweight boxing champion. Later, as the first Winter Soldier, Barnes received vast training from HYDRA, as well as the United States Armed Forces. He employs a mixed martial arts that include elements of Kali knife fighting, Boxing, Taekwondo, and Krav Maga.

Master Marksman: Barnes is highly proficient in handling firearms with remarkable precision, even prior to being turned into the Winter Soldier. After becoming the Winter Soldier- his abilities were honed even further- to the point of being able to hit a target through a building- and in a particularly notable occurrence- hit a target through another person.

Master Assassin: Winter Soldier is a master assassin. Ever since he's been brainwashed, Winter Soldier has lived in complete anonymity with most of the intelligence community not even believing he exists. He's been credited with over two dozen of HYDRA's most crucial assassinations in the last 50 years.

Master Acrobat: Due to his extraordinarily enhanced agility and reflexes, Winter Soldier has shown immense capability in using flips to evade fire. He could also maintain balance of a moving motorcycle while engaged in a fight.

Expert Pilot: Winter Soldier was able to hijack a Quinjet. Also points to his intelligence considering the technological differences he has had to constantly adapt to. (The quinjet obviously being quite peak of the edge of technology.)
weaknesses: Steve Rogers. Also despite all his enhancements, he is only human- and no more resilient to a bullet to the head.
equipment: So many guns.
history
James Buchanan Barnes was born to a loving family where he quickly added to the number with his best friend Steven Grant Rogers. In fact, to separate the two is to cut out a significant part of Bucky's life- and a large number of his motivations. Being an excellent athlete already when the two met, they established their roles of fighter and defender (respectively Steve, and Bucky) quickly. Steve would not back down from injustice- and that brought out the best in his friend.

Bucky was ready to protect his friend from one end of the world to the next- and when Steve was unable to enlist, Bucky found himself grateful that he'd be the only one risking his life. Certainly he had never had the most intense of morals- a good guy- but not a superhuman one- but he knew he would do the best he could. If he had learned anything from his friend it was bravery and a willingness to die for his family and home.

He had accepted his own death when he was taken by hydra- he understood that the life of James Barnes would end quietly in a nondescript factory in the middle of the European countryside. He allowed himself a few nostalgic dreams of his home while he waited for them to finish the process of his loss of life. Seeing Steve seemed unreal at first- it seemed as though he had simply conjured his friend, with the strength he had always known the man possessed- only now externalized.

The choice to become a howling commando was one that he would never regret- he had been given a second chance at life- and Bucky was comfortable offering that to the man who had always been at his side and had given him that second chance. Falling from the train was yet another moment of accepting his death- accepting that he had done the best he could with the time he had.

In a way, it was the death of Bucky Barnes- because he was then reset to a blank state- forced to become a tool for an enemy. Part of him wishes that he could avoid taking responsibility for his actions during that time period- but it was him, regardless of whether or not his memories persisted. He was unbelievably lucky that his friend had also survived- no man other than Steve Rogers could have pulled Bucky from that state- saving him, and giving him yet another shot at being the man his friend saw him as. If it weren't for the exceedingly unlikely case of his friend surviving to meet him again- the man known as Bucky would have been gone forever.

Tearing himself free of Hydra, Bucky ran from his best friend- unable to yet face what he had done. He was content to live in isolation as he rediscovered who he was- until he was brought back in to the fight again. Steve once again gave up more of himself than Bucky could ever hope to repay- being willing to give up everything to give Bucky another chance, no matter the evidence against him. It was no wonder he was so afraid to fail the other man.

Bucky fought relentlessly for his freedom- but the moment when he was brought face to face with someone who had lost people because of what he had done. It was- a lot to accept. He knew he couldn't let himself have his hard won freedom- not if he was still in danger of doing the same thing again.

He very nearly began panicking when he awoke again- feeling no different- but he was faced with a man that he had never met before. A magician- someone who claimed he could free Bucky from the control he was afraid he'd never escape. With that new freedom came a mission- their world was being attacked, and they needed every able bodied individual they could muster. And when that was done- he needed to see about finding his friend.

A fight that seemed to take forever later- Bucky found himself once again face to face with the man known as Doctor Strange- though this time with a spell of a different sort. A form of- of a locating portal. Two parts- one to find Bucky's best friend- and a second to send Bucky to him, with the assumption that if Steve had not returned on his own, then he needed help. Of course- arriving in the hub was not the outcome Bucky had been expecting. Nor had he been expecting to see so many of his friend's face.

Hub Information
landmarks in hub: Nope!
knowledge level of multiverse: None. (Upon entrance)
RP Sample
You may have noticed- but once again I take your photo sizes as guidelines- whoops.

about
Bucky is an interesting being- in that he's trying to merge his two existences into one. To deny his time as Bucky is to turn his back on his friends and family- to deny his time as the winter soldier is to put no value on the lives he took. Basically, he's occasionally the funny flirty guy from Brooklyn- and the rest of the time he's the brooding assassin.
shipper
Friends: if you're friends with Steve.

Enemies: if you're mean to Steve

Lovers: if you are also in love with Steve(joking. (mostly)) Bucky used to be quite the charmer, and he's slowly starting to learn how to again- but relationships aren't his priority and likely won't be. Up until he has one.

nicknames: Moon
age: 22
pronouns: They/Them but super bad at referring to myself that way so I will accept She/Her
timezone: EST
contact: Discord is the best but I do have hipchat, and skype.
triggers: I don't know that I have any- but please do ask if you are uncertain.
mature threading: Sure!... Though I haven't written the male side yet, admittedly.
other characters: Quethadia Nyx, Castiel, Kailani Mahelona, Sombra, Nala.
about: You will regret writing with me. I am the worst. And pretend to be unapologetic- but I am so apologetic.
100. Superhero. Marvel. Sebastian Stan.
