Dr. Erskine’s volatile Vita-Rays imbued Steve Rogers with extraordinary strength and speed, transforming him into the perfect soldier, the Star Spangled Avenger, Captain America! But when he’s not fighting unspeakable Axis threats he’s hanging out with Bucky, the orphaned Camp Mascot, as dorky Private Rogers.

A Nazi sub landing will make the perfect test for the teenage sidekick. It’s sink or swim Bucky!

Avengers #4


Captain America, frozen for years in a block of ice, finds himself revived in the modern era by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Steve Rogers shows no signs of aging and proves his physical fitness and battle prowess by taking it to the Avengers, but as awesome as the technology is, as amazing as the future seems, memories of his last moments with Bucky keep bubbling to the surface. To Cap, the drone plane explosion that caused his cryogenic incarceration and Bucky's apparent death seems like it only happened yesterday. Is the hero ready to put on the mask and take up his shield again?

Captain America #14


Brainwashed into becoming Department X’s most deadly assassin, James Buchanan Barnes, a.k.a. Bucky, leaves a swath of bodies in his wake wherever he’s deployed as the Winter Soldier. Now he works for Aleksander Lukin and the Red Skull and Cap fights to free him of their devious mental programming. But can even a friendship forged in the fires of war bring Bucky back from the brink? It’s Captain America vs. the Winter Soldier, and the cosmic cube hangs in the balance! 

Captain America 65th Anniversary #1


What deadly secrets lurk beneath the ruins of Castle Eisen Lie? Well if the Red Skull wants to find out you can bet that means trouble for the Allies, so Cap, Bucky, and the Howling Commandos drop behind enemy lines to see what the Skull’s up to. Bucky teams with the resistance while Steve and the Howlers try to figure out the rouge-faced maniac’s scheme. But when Cap’s teenage sidekick discovers the Skull’s digging for a massive mechanical monstrosity that, if awakened, could turn the tide of the war, they realize just how serious their mission is, and that none of them might ever make it home.

Captain America: Who Will Wield the Shield? #1


The Sentinel of Liberty’s back from his jaunt through time, and his old sidekick-turned-villain-turned-hero, Bucky Barnes, has donned Cap's shield in the meantime. But does Steve want it back? After reliving the most horrific cruelties of World War II all over again, after facing the endless avalanche of the Nazi war machine for what seemed like an eternity in that hellish limbo, will Captain America finally pass on his legacy? Who will wield the shield?
