We have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph.

Godwin's law is an Internet adage which asserts that as an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hitler approaches 1.

NAME. James Buchanan Barnes
CANON. Marvel 616
DOB/AGE. March 25, 1925. 20.
HAIR/EYE. Brown / brown 1
HEIGHT/WEIGHT. 5′9″, 160lbs
CANONPOINT. c. April, 1945

APPEARANCE. Wavy brown hair, a John Q. Public smile, clothes that might be hip if they weren't so square. Bucky is in superhero shape but isn't particularly tall or thick and could pass for a few years younger than he is. Somehow exudes "America" in his general bearing, this is #canon but idek.

LANGUAGE. Speaks American. Also German, French, and Russian, but American first. A fast talker with an expressive face, he will use words like “cripes” unironically. He drops his g's a lot in comics which I don't always write out because it looks dumb. Assume his diction ain't great.

GESTURES. Bucky typically carries himself with military posture and can probably be recognized as a trained fighter if you're character has that kind of eye. Otherwise, he speaks with his hands and has an expressive face.

⚠︎ ALERT! Currently much of Bucky's history has been rewritten by a sentient cosmic cube in order to turn Steve Rogers into a life-long fascist collaborator. In this altered reality, Bucky kills Heinrich Zemo, but is later confronted by his son Helmut, who reveals that Steve is really his BFF. They offer Bucky the choice of joining HYDRA or being sent off on a drone plane to die, and as always, Bucky chooses the drone plane. I'm ignoring this because 1) it's gonna be put back to normal by October and 2) it's pretty stupid.
And to you, and to all Americans who dedicate themselves with us to the making of an abiding peace, I say: The only limit to our realization of tomorrow will be our doubts of today. — Franklin Delano Roosevelt, prepared for April 13, 1945
Let us move forward with strong and active faith. )
