Preview: CAPTAIN AMERICA #34 from Marvel Comics
As two Captain America storylines draw to a close, a momentous comic book event occurs as a new Captain America is chosen. But will it be Cap’s old partner, Bucky Barnes, aka The Winter Soldier, Corporal James Newman of the US Marine Corps or perhaps Clint Barton, formerly known as Hawkeye?
After being captured by the Red Skull, Bucky escaped into SHIELD custody, where Tony Stark, AKA Iron Man, revealed that Cap’s final wish was for Bucky to take up the mantle. But first, Bucky must undergo extensive psychiatric treatment to determine whether his assassin persona, The Winter Soldier, is still controlling his actions.
Is Bucky Barnes up to the task? Will he become the NEW Captain America?
