Originally created to be Captain America’s younger sidekick, Bucky Barnes has taken on a life of his own. As the Winter Soldier, his skill is second to none. Like Cap, Bucky was put into cryogenic stasis following the end of the Second World War. His cybernetic arm helps give him superhuman strength, which HYDRA used to turn him into a ruthless assassin.

While the Winter Soldier has become synonymous with Sebastian Stan’s on-screen portrayal in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there have been a handful of different Bucky Barnes actors over the years. From Carl Banas, who first played Bucky in The Marvel Super Heroes cartoon in the ‘60s, to Scott Menville’s and Bob Bergen’s roles in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Avengers Assemble, there have been many different actors to play Bucky Barnes.
