Any average civilian in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has probably led a more exciting life than someone in the real world, but even by that standard, Bucky Barnes's MCU life story has been a wild ride. Considering how old Bucky Barnes is, the Winter Soldier's MCU history covers more action and loss than anyone else in the franchise - even more than Steve Rogers. In a saga chock-full of unique experiences and perspectives, James Buchanan Barnes’s story is truly one of a kind.
In more than a century of life in the MCU, Bucky has gone from Brooklyn to Russia to Wakanda and back home again. In between, he's seen the world transform a hundred times over as he battled the Third Reich, super soldiers, and alien hordes. Indeed, Bucky Barnes has already lived far more than most in more ways than one - and he's far from done.
