Bucky Barnes, day 16

Bucky blamed Tony for Steve’s death, and targeted him for revenge. But Tony had a final letter from Steve asking him to do two things: keep Cap’s legacy alive, and help Bucky. Tony decided that meant convincing Bucky to step in as Captain America.

(You can see here that Bucky’s painted his arm in Cap colors as a memorial to Steve.)
