Summary: Steve Rogers was blown out of a train car in the same attack that took Bucky’s arm. With Steve dead, Bucky took over trying to take down Hydra, eventually plunging to his apparent death to save the USA from an Hydra assault. But when he’s unfrozen 75 years later, he discovers that neither Steve nor Hydra ever died, his best friend has become the face of a terrible regime, and the rebel Avengers need his help to put the world right again.
