family: He has- er. Had. Three siblings- two parents. All of whom have since passed on. He has felt no desire to search for nieces or nephews. When Bucky was returned to himself from being the winter soldier- he had one more person on the list. Steve Rogers has since also passed away.
relationship status: Single.
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 Barnes' 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.)


Tactical Intelligence: In effort to match the image of Captain America, Bucky has spent time while in Wakanda reviewing tactics- working with programs designed by Shuri to learn how to handle more situations- with more variables. Helps him with awareness, as well as unlearning bad habits that he acquired as the winter soldier.
weaknesses: Despite all his enhancements, he is only human- and no more resilient to a bullet to the head. He also feels a certain amount of debt to Wakanda that he will put aside most things to aid them. (Or at least the royal family. (By that he means Shuri.))
equipment: A large Arsenal of Guns, A Vibranium Arm designed by Shuri, Kimoyo Beads, A Suit set in Red White and Blue (and Black because this is Bucky we're talking about) and a shield with a fancy logo.
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 the same woman who had put him under. The one who had assured him as he was put in cryostasis that she'd help him- and she had. She explained that she had more or less rebooted him (though he's still behind tech so a lot of it went over his head) but the gist of it was that Shuri had given him another shot at life- and he was incredibly grateful.

Even though having that extra shot meant that he was alive to see his best friend die. It took Bucky all of a day to ask Shuri to make him a shield, and help him design some new armor.

Because it was clear to him that even though his hope may have died with Steve Rogers- the world needed the symbol of hope that was Captain America. Bucky couldn't protect the man he considered a brother, so he settled for protecting the things that the man had valued.

Hub Information
landmarks in hub: Not from Bucky
knowledge level of multiverse: Ask Kel. Because it depends on how much Shuri talks at him about science.
fandom specific information: Nothing new other than Bucky is Captain America.
RP Sample
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. For a while, he was occasionally the funny flirty guy from Brooklyn- and the rest of the time he was the brooding assassin.

With the death of Steve, that stopped being an option for him- because the brooding assassin had to make way for the hero that is Captain America. Because of this, Bucky is still processing his grief largely through ignoring it or hiding for a couple hours to stare blankly at a wall.


Friends: If you're a good person who treats others kindly. A great number of Wakandans fall in this category- having welcomed him and helped him become whole once more when he needed it most.

Enemies: If Bucky feels Steve would want him to stop you- Otherwise, he may not like you, but he will attempt to be cordial. See enemies of Wakanda as well.

Lovers: Bucky used to be quite the charmer, and he's slowly starting to learn how to again- relationships aren't his priority in that he's not searching them out- but he will not attempt to deny emotions should they start to take root.
(and his writer ships him with Shuri big time. (at least this him))

nicknames: Moon
age: 22
pronouns: They/Them but I usually forget that and irl people use she/her so I legitimately don't care.
timezone: (b)EST
contact: Hit me up on Discord! (Or Email, or skype, or hipchat, or pm- but discord is best.)
triggers: I don't know that I have any? I may ask that we handle certain topics carefully if a thread goes a certain way- but for the most part, I don't mind anything so long as it has value in a thread. (Ask if uncertain!)
mature threading: Sure.
other characters: Quethadia Nyx, Castiel, Kailani Mahelona, Sune, Nala and James Barnes (because I ship Soviet Spouses but also Shuri and Bucky (idek what their ship name is) too much to not have them both.)
about: I am the worst but it's okay I'll only bug you with thread ideas like a lot of the time. Or random comments. It's okay, it's tolerable I swear.
100. Captain America. Marvel. Sebastian Stan.
