Captain America faces an old enemy in The Heroic Age, Baron Zemo

Posted on February 9th, 2010 by The Heroic Age

The Heroic Age Captain America Promo01 Captain America faces an old enemy in The Heroic Age, Baron Zemo

As Marvel begins a new “Heroic Age” in May, Captain America by Ed Brubaker will have a semi-new artist, a newly evil villain, and a brand new status quo for the book’s main character.

In the aftermath of Captain America Reborn and Siege , James “Bucky” Barnes isn’t just filling in for Steve Rogers anymore. As of May, he becomes not only the official Captain America, but a member of the good-guy Avengers, something that’s a bit of an adjustment for the former assassin.

Along with a new sense of heroes comes a new type of villain, and in Captain America #606 , former anti-hero Baron Zemo gets a new sheen of evil as he tries to kill Bucky and finish the job his father started.  – Via Newsarama

The Heroic Age Avengers Line Up – Captain America Biography

Posted on February 2nd, 2010 by The Heroic Age

The Heroic Age Marvel Comics Captain America Bio 2 The Heroic Age Avengers Line Up   Captain America BiographyAs a young boy, James Buchanan Barnes lost his father (a soldier during WWII), and was adopted by Camp Lehigh as their mascot, and given the nickname “Bucky”. It was here that he learned the identity of Captain America. He underwent rigorous training and was assigned to be Cap’s sidekick, accompanying him on many adventures, and the two often worked with the original Invaders. However, on a final mission against Baron Zemo, Bucky and Cap hopped on an experimental drone plane in an attempt to disarm a bomb. The bomb detonated, dropping Cap in the North Atlantic, where he would later be found and thawed out by the Avengers. American forces never found Bucky’s body, and he was presumed dead. Unbeknownst to the Americans, he was found and revived by Russian General Vasily Karpov.

When Barnes awoke, he had no memory of his identity, which gave Karpov an opportunity to reprogram Barnes as a Soviet assassin called the 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.

In the present day, the Winter Soldier seemingly kills the Red Skull and Jack Monroe (Nomad) under orders from former Soviet general Aleksander Lukin (Karpov’s former protégé). The Soldier launches a terrorist attack on Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, killing hundreds, and charges the Cosmic Cube which Lukin sent him to retrieve. He kidnaps Sharon Carter, an agent of the international espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and an erstwhile paramour of Steve Rogers (Captain America). Upon her rescue, Carter tells Captain America the Soldier looked like Bucky. S.H.I.E.L.D. chief Nick Fury confirms the Winter Soldier’s existence, but cannot ascertain his identity.

Barnes learns from executive directorTony Stark that Steve Rogers had left Stark a letter asking him to watch over Barnes, and the mantle of Captain America should continue. Barnes agrees to become the new Captain America, but only if Stark guarantees him complete autonomy. As this arrangement is illegal under the Superhuman Registration Act, Stark keeps his support of the new Captain America secret. As Captain America, Barnes wears a new costume, laced with adamantium, and carries a pistol and a combat knife. He and his allies succeed in aborting the Skull’s plans, and Barnes saves the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates from assassination, winning public applause. He also restarts his relationship with Black Widow

n the aftermath of Secret Invasion, Barnes joins the New Avengers and offers his home as a base of operations. He later participates in the search for Luke and Jessica’s child, Danielle.He was considered a possible team leader but he turned it down because he didn’t have the proper team experience.

Leading up to Siege, Barnes is shown still as Captain America talking with Steve Rogers, who is in a dark body suit and standing next to him. In Invincible Iron Man #21 Rogers is back in costume and seen alongside Barnes, who is still in his own Captain America costume. The two are helping restore Tony Stark’s mind by using the shield as a conduit for Thor’s lightning.

Barnes has been confirmed to be a member of the new Avengers team formed in the aftermath of the Siege in Marvels Heroic Age.
