Capture of Winter Soldier

Winter Soldier goes on the run in Bucharest

"Romania was not Accords-sanctioned. Colonel Rhodes is supervising cleanup."
Tony Stark[src]

In 2016, Bucky Barnes hid in an apartment in Bucharest, Romania. While walking through the city and buying plums from a street seller, Barnes caught sight of a man staring at him. Taking the Jurnalul de Lugoj newspaper, Barnes discovered that he was considered responsible for the bombing in Vienna. Seeing this, Barnes decided to collect his belongings and escape the city.

Captain America finding the Winter Soldier

Returning into his apartment, Barnes discovered Captain America inside. Barnes had insisted that he was not responsible for the attack but Captain America noted that the people who thought he was were coming to their location not intending to take him alive. Suddenly, GSG 9 operatives charged into the building, confronting Captain America and Barnes. As more operatives charged into the hideout, Barnes and Captain America non-lethally took down the operatives.

Winter Soldier leaping away for his freedom

Leaving Captain America behind, Barnes reached the next building's rooftop, regaining his backpack and continuing to run. However just as he began running, he was attacked by Black Panther. Without a word being spoken, Barnes and Black Panther were fighting before they were distracted as a GSG 9 helicopter began shooting at them. Barnes began to run again, with Black Panther and Captain America running close behind him as they leaped down from the building and onto the street, while Falcon managed to knock the helicopter out of the way of danger to protect them all.

Black Panther chasing down Winter Soldier

Realizing that Black Panther would be able to catch up to him eventually, Barnes was able to get a hold a motorcycle and used the extra speed to get ahead in the chase while Rogers used a stolen car to try and catch up with him. Black Panther managed to catch up with Barnes and attempted to kill him, although Barnes was just able to block his attack, knocking him into the road. While also grinding his hand across the tarmac to keep from falling off his bike and had still continued to ride away from danger while the still determined GSG 9 agents followed behind.

Captain America and Winter Soldier give up

Coming to the end of the tunnel, Barnes used an explosive to destroy the roof. However, Black Panther was able to gain extra speed by jumping on Falcon's back and knocked Barnes off his bike before Captain America kept him from killing his friend. The manhunt was finished as War Machine and GSG 9 operatives apprehended them and took them into custody.[3]
