arc; defenders of freedom
i’ve been meaning to do a quick rundown of this arc for ages but it’s basically bucky’s post-cacw arc — now with more Thrilling Heroics and sense of societal responsibility!
in a similar style of buckycap forming/joining the new avengers, bucky puts together a loose team of heroes/vigilantes that are willing to take on smaller, more street-level problems that might not concern the UN or overtly fall under the jurisdiction of the accords. they’re less global-level events and more local / regional level catastrophes that need a little Extra Intervention.
there’s not as much emphasis on Heroic Titles or anything but if he was going to take one on it’d be nomad because i will never let nomad bucky go
