James Barnes seemingly had a similar history as his Earth-616 counterpart. As Bucky, James was Captain America's sidekick.

Fat Boy

Circa 1945, Bucky and Captain America were summoned to Gotham City. Steve informed him that The Joker had been manipulated to attack army operations. They teamed-up with the Batman Family and went over the evidence on the Batcomputer. Commissioner Gordon of the Gotham City Police Department turned on the Bat-Signal, meaning The Joker had struck again. Not wanting to leave the program running by itself, Batman sent Rogers and Robin in his place. Once it finished, James and Bruce left to investigate a warehouse they believed to be The Joker's base; however, it turned out to be an ambush by the Red Skull. He tied them to a death trap, but the two were able to escape in time. They regrouped with Captain America and Robin, who revealed that Skull and Joker had stolen a nuclear bomb and were on their way to Washington, D.C.. he four heroes took the Batplane to intersect Skull's plane as it left the base. Bruce and Steve broke onto the plane and flew it to the Atlantic Ocean. Shmidt mocked their efforts, as they were still close enough to his target to fulfill his mission. He tried to deploy the bomb, only to find that Joker had betrayed him and damaged the dropping mechanism. Their fight caused the bomb to drop with the two madmen on top of it, exploding over Atlantic.


Towards the end of the war, Captain America and Bucky were involved in a battle that threw Rogers into the Atlantic and seemingly killed Barnes.[1]


Seemingly those of the Bucky Barnes of Earth-616.
