James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes is a former soldier of the 107th Infantry Regiment and the childhood best friend of Steve Rogers. As World War II was escalating, he was recruited to become a member of the Howling Commandos. In the time between 1943 and the end of the war in 1945, they had attacked and disabled many HYDRA bases.
In 1945, Barnes tried with the Howling Commando to capture a HYDRA scientist but Barnes was attacked and promptly plummeted off the side of a HYDRA train. He was then presumed to be deceased, though unbeknownst to his teammates Barnes had actually survived due to the experiments performed on him by Zola while he was briefly captured by HYDRA with the loss of his left arm. Brainwashed and armed with a new cybernetic limb, Barnes ultimately became an enhanced HYDRA operative known as the Winter Soldier. Over the next several decades, he would eliminate anyone who posed a threat to HYDRA, including his former ally, Howard Stark along with his wife Maria. Between missions, Barnes would be put into a cryogenic stasis to preserve his longevity. Over half a century later, when he was ordered by HYDRA leader Alexander Pierce to assassinate S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury, the Winter Soldier was confronted by his old friend, Steve Rogers, triggering him to begin remembering his prior life.
In the aftermath of the Battle at the Triskelion, the Winter Soldier went on the run from HYDRA on a self-imposed mission to remember his past and end his violent history. However, during this time Barnes was accused of being the perpetrator behind a bombing of the Vienna International Centre, which claimed the lives of many individuals including the king of Wakanda, which led to T'Chaka's son T'Challa to pursue him to gain vengeance. Barnes was saved by Captain America, sparking the Avengers Civil War as he also became a target for Secretary of State Thaddeus Ross and Iron Man. When Iron Man learned that the Winter Soldier had killed his family, Barnes was once again saved by Rogers as it was revealed that Helmut Zemo had organized the entire civil war between the Avengers as revenge for incidentally killing his family a year prior during the Battle of Sokovia. Barnes was then taken to Wakanda, where he chose to be cryogenically frozen until his mind could be cured of the mental programming implanted by HYDRA.
After a year in cryo Shuri has woken up Barnes and did her best to remove his programming. He then thought side by side by his old lover and Friend Steve Rogers.
After Thanos Barnes he started to work at Shield. He had a desk job and was only on missions when needed. After a while he started dating Natasha Romanoff aka Black Widow. Later he became an Avenger.
He married Natasha and then adopted Adrian.
After a mission he had a wheelchair since Adrian shot in his knees because Barnes was possed by a demon. He suffered that he could not do mission or anything else. He was depressed and tried to kill himself. A year later he got rid of the wheel chair and learned how to walk again.
The marrige went good for a time between him and Natasha but then Barnes panicked because Natasha was pregnant and cheated on her. They broke up and filed a divorce. Since then he had a new girlfriend.
He then joined the army again and went for two tours to Iraq. They were out on the field when Barnes stepped on a land mine and his left leg is now gone. Since the army did not take him back he got a new job as an accountant.
Barnes broke up with his girlfriend and then reunited with Natasha again and took a job at Shield.
Bucky Barnes was extremely devoted, loyal, headstrong and patriotic and had a strong moral center. He was a good and close friend to Steve Rogers during their youth. He was also protective of Rogers, as when he planned to enlist in the United States Army. Barnes tried to talk him out of it, as he knew he would die because of his physical condition and poor health.
As the Winter Soldier, he was brutal and ruthless with an utter lack of conscience, and followed remorselessly on Hydra's any order. Even so, he still saved Steve Rogers from drowning after the Insight Helicarrier blew up. Although he states he did not know why he did such, it was due to Rogers reminding him of who he was, which he initially reacted with violence before finally accepting.
While he still holds a mostly serious demeanor, he is still shown to retain a sense of humor, as shown when he and Falcon both smiled with approval at Rogers' kiss with Sharon Carter and later as the two reminisced over earlier times in their friendship. His sense of humor can also be dry at times, as shown when he asked Wilson why he couldn't use his gadget on Spider-Man earlier to take him down.
Even though Barnes has regained his identity and former values, he has also developed a guilt-ridden conscience, and became deeply ashamed over his actions as the Winter Soldier. He previously stated that he has an absolute memory of every person he has killed, and knows that the fact he was brainwashed does not change the fact that he killed them.
