It disturbs me the lack of fanart of Rikki Barnes as future Captain America. Rikki was Bucky, it would make sense that, in a possible future, she would take the mantle. And she’s also Bucky-I-was-Captain-America’s granddaughter. I would do some myself, in the future, perhaps. So there ya go artists, if you need a future Cap in your future Avengers AU, consider Rikki.

The Star-Spangled Children

“It’s going down… I’m yelling FREEDOM!!”
I blame you, alliealison

I’m a little late. Oopsies… This is for Steve’s birthday! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

I’ve always wanted to draw the Star-Spangled bbys. XD Maybe someday I’ll make a decent Star-Spangled family portrait with Grandpa Steve and Isaiah. I like to think that Bucky’s their big brother and Rikki is the youngest. Haha!

This is my first time drawing Rikki and oh my gosh I never drawn so much ‘murica in one artwork. HAHA!


Hope you guys like this! (´∀`)♡


↳Women of Marvel (7/10): Rikki Barnes, aka Nomad

Powers and Abilities: Rikki is very skilled at acrobatics and fighting techniques. 

Background: Rikki was originally from another world created by Franklin Richards for the heroes of Earth 616 after the events of Onslaught. There, she was Captain America’s sidekick Bucky, and fought with him and Sam Wilson. When the heroes returned home, Rikki continued fighting, and eventually her world was transported to the universe of Earth 616. There, Rikki went by Nomad, and was close friends with Anya Corazon, with whom she fought on the Young Allies team.

Why you should love her: Rikki was thrown into the world of 616 after Steve Rogers had died, meaning she was very much alone and mourning one of her very close friends, yet she doesn’t let that stop her from making friends, living her life, and becoming an unlikely hero. Rikki ended up sacrificing herself to take out Onslaught in Onslaught Unleashed, making it clear that she had grown into a hero of her own merit. 

Where you should read about her:

  • Young Allies
  • Onslaught Unleashed
