There are things from the Winter Soldier days that I'm just remembering. Weapons left in the field... Dangers I can still prevent. I think maybe that's the path... A way to the redemption I've been looking for.

History

Bucky's appearance before becoming The Winter Soldier

As James Buchanan Barnes, aka Bucky, he lost his father during WWII and was adopted by Camp Lehigh. It was there that he learned the identity of Captain America. He was trained by Captain America and was assigned to be Cap's sidekick. There he accompanyed him on many adventures, and the duo usually worked with the original Invaders.

However, on thier final mission together against Baron Zemo, both Bucky and Cap hopped on an experimental drone plane in an attempt to disarm a bomb. When the bomb detonated, It forced Cap to fall in the North Atlantic, where he would later be found frozen in time and thawed out by the Avengers. The American forces never did find Bucky's body, and he was presumed dead. Not knowing that Bucky was both found and revived by Russian General; Vasily Karpov.

As Winter Soldier

When Bucky awoke, he had no memory of his real identity, which gave Karpov an opportunity to reprogram Bucky as a Soviet assassin and was given the alias: Winter Soldier. He was sent all across the globe, committing political assassinations with huge effects on the Cold War. However, his memory implantation caused mental instability, and he was kept in stasis between missions to prevent rebellion.

Film history

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

The Winter Soldier appears as the titular secondary antagonist in the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.  Stan reprised his role as James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes, AKA, The Winter Soldier. 

Powers and Skills

Because he was originally trained by Captain America, The Winter Solider is highly skilled on nearly all forms of hand-to-hand combat. He skilled on all kinds of firearms and bombs. He's a skilled knife thrower, and an expert marksman. His entire left arm has been mechanically modified, making it cybernetic(possibly made of vibranium). This has granted the Winter Soldier both superhuman strength and some other powers. Bucky was injected with the infinity formula, which has granted him semi-immortality and superhumanly enhanced strength, speed, reflexes, healing, stamina and agility.
