I'm a big Winter Soldier fan and love that Ed Brubaker brought a great character back like Bucky so creatively and he needs his own shot on an Avengers team. Right now most of the Marvel Universe thinks he dead but i feel like that needs to end and that he needs to start working with the Avengers. I thought he would work well on the Secret Avengers but they are ending that run. What do you think? Bucky rejoin Cap and other avengers?
Eh...I don't know. I'm a big fan of Bucky, both in his time as the Winter Soldier and as Captain America II. But I don't feel like he'll bring anything new to the team. Plus, with his history as a largely covert operative, Bucky just doesn't seem like the right fit for the Avengers. It was alright when he was carrying the shield, but I don't think the Avengers suits his present modus operandi.
That being said, I'm not entirely opposed to the idea. If Hickman can come up with a suitable justification, I'm willing to give it a chance. I don't know, maybe he could be part of a stealth division of the team? With Hawkeye, Wolverine, and Widow? Lol, I don't know, I'm just spitballing here XD
@JimmyJLocke: well thanks. I didn't know that at all. I think that fits him perfectly. it's like @Veshark said about working with hawkeye and widow. I looks like they already came up with the Secret Avengers idea. That's where i thought he really would fit in and i thought they were canceling that title all together. Guess i need to keep up with things better.
@Drummer007: Bucky is in Secret Avengers. He also might be in regular in Avengers title. If you reread Avengers #2 look for when Tony and Steve are looking over the list for candidates for the the team and James Barnes is one of the names on the list. (It is the last name on the list.)
@ThexX: That's awesome to know. I know i'm picking up Secret Avengers this week and looking to see if he shows up on Hickman's Avengers in the future. That's a good eye to catch him on the list. I'm going to look tonight. Brubaker did to great of a job to have Bucky only stay in his own title.
