You gotta take whatever bleedingcool says with a grain of salt. They're wrong a lot more times than they are right.
I've seen a lot of things that they've said that were on-spot,so while it's definitely possible that it could be wrong,it's also possible that it's right.
Well, yeah, they've been right in the past. They've just also been wrong in the past too and a lot more often than they are right. Anything they say, I don't believe until DC confirms it. Just my prerogative.
Well,that's also true.
Let's just cross our fingers. Honestly,I've seen them generally right more recently,though.
@cameron83: I pretty much meant they share similarities, but 'Jason Todd and Bucky Barnes Share Similarities' wouldn't have been as juicy of a title. I think a lot of people commenting think that I really am ignorant and have never read more than two comics and really mean they're the same person. I just thought their strikingly similar stories was interest and wondered as an afterthought if one company 'ripped off' another.
Well no,no company "ripped off of another" in this regard. But you are completely right,there definitely are similarities in their stories. I'm sorry if I came off....like an ass :)
@w3bst3r: There are comparisons,but no one "ripped off of another". I f*cking hate when people say that. This isn't really directed at you,more in general.
To say that they're "basically the same person" is the most ignorant thing I've ever heard.
Both are sdekicks that are antiheroes that were resurrected......there are a few other similarities,you are definitely right in that observation,but to say that they are the same person,to say that they play the same role to Cap/Bats (which isn't true,in terms of roles,Bucky is like what Dick Grayson is to Batman. He's like the first/only son to him),isn't really true. And again,reading comics on the characters,they aren't really the similar...at all (besides the superficial similarities,which mean nothing). Might as well say that Green Arrow is the same as Hawkeye,just because they're both archers. The links are tenuous,to say the least.
