About Him

Grew Up... in 1920s New York, alongside his best friend Steve Rogers. Bucky had a more stable family life than Steve, and he was always happy to share what he had with the man he considered a brother.

Living... in New York for a few more days until he ships out to Europe as a solider in the Second World War.

Visiting... Europe. Bucky’s deployment takes him all over the continent, including England and Italy.  

Profession... Sergeant in the 107th infantry. Bucky enlisted as a solider in WWII and he quickly rose to the rank of Sergeant.

Interests... flirting with women, cracking jokes, and having a good time.

Relationship Status... dating around. Bucky isn’t seeing anyone seriously, but he’s happy to take a girl out for a night on the town. He’s used to being seen as a stud, especially compared to scrawny Steve, but he always tries to look out for his friend, too. The night before his deployment, Bucky takes Steve on a double date with his gal Bonnie and her friend Connie.

Challenge... winning the war. As an American solider, Bucky will do whatever he can to turn the tide against the Axis powers and whatever other organizations might be conspiring against freedom. And he’s willing to try unconventional methods, like serving under Steve once he’s turned into the super soldier Captain America. As Bucky explains, “The little guy from Brooklyn who was too dumb not to run away from a fight. I'm following him.”

Personality... charming, laid-back, generous, and loyal. Although Bucky has led a charmed life, he’s not at all spoiled. He’s devoted to both his friends and his country and eager to help them in anyway he can. Bucky can be a bit of a cad and he’s used to being popular and well-liked, but he never looks down on those who aren’t as well-off as he is.
