For a long time, it was fondly accepted among comic book fans that Bucky was one of the few [[DeathIsCheap comic book characters that actually stayed dead]], along with [[{{Franchise/Batman}} Jason Todd]] and [[{{Franchise/Spider-Man}} Uncle Ben]]. Since Jason ''also'' took a rain check on the Grim Reaper about the same time Bucky did, well...

* RedemptionDemotion: When Bucky was reintroduced as the Winter Soldier, he was presented as a cold, unerring, and efficient assassin who could eliminate the Red Skull without even batting an eyelash. [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone After regaining his memories]] and subsequently taking on the Captain America mantle, while he did fairly well, he showed an over-reliance on {{Indy Ploy}}s and a [[DistressedDude tendency to end up being saved by his buddies from harm]].

This makes a certain amount of sense, since the skill-sets of 'assassin' and 'superhero' aren't quite the same - putting a bullet in someone like the Red Skull is easier than taking them in alive.

* ArtificialLimbs: The Soviets replaced the arm he lost in UsefulNotes/WorldWar2 with a cybernetic one. After he loses his Soviet one stopping the Red Skull's Sleeper, he gets a new from Nick Fury which has a lot of handy abilities, such as an {{EMP}}. It also allows him to handle and throw Captain America's shield properly, making him (alongside ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}) one of the only two non-super soldier serum-embued person to be able to use it.

* {{Retcon}}: Creator/EdBrubaker's retooling of the Bucky character into a teen assassin, [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashed]] into becoming a Soviet agent after secretly surviving UsefulNotes/WorldWar2, paving the way for his reintroduction into modern day comics is often hailed as one of the most well done Retcons in recent history. His original death in TheSixties was a retcon as well, saying that the Captain America and Bucky from TheFifties were actually impostors. According to Brubaker, it was when he learned that this oft-flashbacked-to death was just a retcon that he determined that, if he ever got to write Captain America comics, he'd undo it.

* VitriolicBestBuds: With Namor, the ComicBook/SubMariner. Namor is proud and Bucky constantly snarks him, but they fought side by side in WorldWarII and the kind of friendship forged there means they have a much higher tolerance for each others' crap-- Steve is openly passive-aggressive and disgusted with Namor's actions with the Illuminati, but Bucky is silent on the matter and they work together with the usual banter in the first issue of his current ongoing.
