Exclusive Preview: Winter Soldier #1 Gives Bucky a New Mission

Kyle Higgins and artist Rod Reis are giving Bucky Barnes a new lease on life. Cap’s former sidekick has been an assassin, a hero, “the Man on the Wall,” and even Captain America himself. However, Bucky’s long road to redemption has led to a different path. Now, Bucky wants to give others the same chance that he received to turn his life around. But it’s not going to be easy for the Winter Soldier.

In Superhero Hype’s exclusive preview for Winter Soldier #1, the five-issue miniseries kicks off by introducing Bucky’s new client. His name is Arthur, and he’s a police officer who’s in way over his head. Only Bucky can get him out alive, but Arthur’s friends on the force are more than they appear to be. And they’re not about to let Arthur escape without a fight.

Here’s the official description from Marvel: “Bucky Barnes believes in second chances. Having escaped death, the loss of identity, and a life of murder, the man known as the Winter Soldier has worked hard to atone for his sins. But now…he’s going to go one step further. What do you do when you’ve found redemption? You help others do the same. From KYLE HIGGINS (Nightwing, Power Rangers, C.O.W.L.) and ROD REIS (SECRET EMPIRE, DOCTOR STRANGE: DAMNATION, C.O.W.L.) comes the next chapter in the saga of the Winter Soldier. He’s becoming a “fixer,” working to help others leave behind lives of crime. It’s Bucky’s way of channeling his own pain in a productive, personal way…by helping others find the redemption that he found. However, as Bucky is going to learn, not all paths are the same…and not everyone can be ‘saved.'”
