It's a well known fact that Stan Lee hated kid sidekicks, so when he brought back Captain America in Avengers #4, he took the opportunity to kill off Bucky, Cap's kid sidekick, via exploding plane. This was such a well known death -- and such a big motivator for Cap -- that there used to be a saying in fandom: "The only people who truly stay dead are Jason Todd, Bucky Barnes, and Uncle Ben." C'est la vie.

And that's how it was, right up until Ed Brubaker took over writing Captain America in 2005 and decided to bring Bucky Barnes back. But not as a kid sidekick -- instead, as a brainwashed assassin. Brubaker even used an entire issue -- Captain America vol 5 #11 -- to expand and explore the retcon.

Captain America and Bucky 620-000.jpg

So here's how Steve Rogers met James "Bucky" Barnes. And nothing about Bucky accidentally finding out Steve was Captain America and becoming his sidekick right then and there.

Tales of Suspense has so much subtext between Clint and Bucky and...I lowkey ship it. (I hate Jeremy Renner so screw that)

Anyway they're on a quest to find Natasha...the first Black Widow.

"You know, I’ve always loved the Old Man Logan story. That’s a beauty. Maybe in 20 years time I’ll just pop up and do that one." - Hugh Jackman, 2014

As you may or may not have heard, the upcoming 'Logan' film is loosely inspired by the storyline 'Old Man Logan', a comic that Hugh Jackman had been hoping to adapt for years. Everything indicates that the similarities will likely be thematic for obvious reasons (99% of the major characters couldn't appear in a Fox film) but if you wanted to see the launching pad for the film here it is.

Warning: This is pretty gory.

"I'm not afraid of a man who can't protect his own children."

Has anyone has ever said something similar about another character's murdered loved ones. Would anyone say this to Commissioner Gordon about how he couldn't protect Sara and Barbara from the Joker?

Wally West once shouted to Batman: "I'm getting lectured on child safety from a man who's gone through four Robins?"

(Edit: Panel moved after the cut.)

Hold the eye. And the robot head. )

"It's super-dark. You have to imagine someone like Red Skull, who is such an evil force, is so manipulative, and I've always been a believer that once you start to look for the darkness you realize it was all around you all the time. The story is very much a Heart of Darkness sort of story about how you keep going deeper and deeper into this thing and in the process of doing that, the journey to find the Red Skull, it starts to corrupt them. It starts to turn them as well. It gets kinda dark."

Ah Hitler, if any historical personality has appeared in Superhero comics more I'll be surprised (although there was a brief time when Nixon appeared in a lot of stuff, such as an actual supervillain in Captain American around the time of Watergate). Naturally as the cause of so much evil, he's been the target of the wrath of many a superhero over the years, but due to him being a real person actual depictions of him getting killed for his crimes are relatively rare.
