STOP IT STOP IT STOP IT STOP COMPARING BUCKY TO LOKI THEY ARE NOT ONE IN THE SAME
Sigh okay it’s edumacation time apparently.
Loki is the god of mischief, he let in Asgard’s sworn enemies just for the sake of getting attention because he felt neglected, he couldn’t try and shine or try and outdo his brother, he couldn’t TALK to his parents about it, he couldn’t try and resolve the issue. His first instinct was to let in dangerous, murderous Frost Giants into Asgard and then kill them in an attempt to look like a hero. He started a war for attention, and when he wasn’t given gratification, he turned fucking nuts and tried to rule the earth to prove to daddy he could be a better king than Thor could. EVERYTHING loki does stems from sociopathic behaviour, and he feels NO remorse for what he does. Even his actions in Thor 2 are only a ploy to get his hands on the throne of Asgard. he is not being forced against his will, he is not being brainwashed, he is entirely responsible for his own actions.
Bucky, on the other hand, is 100% loyal to Steve, before and after his brainwashing. He would do ANYTHING for Steve, he would protect him to his dying breath which he DID on that train. Falling the way he did cost him more than his life, it cost him who he was, his sanity, his ability to live a life HE wanted to live. He was taken and he wasn’t just brainwashed, his mind was LITERALLY REPROGRAMMED to be the Winter Soldier. It wasn’t a choice, it wasn’t an option. If he could’ve chose, I’m sure he’d rather have frozen and died in the fucking ocean. He didn’t CHOOSE to be a villain, he didn’t WANT to be the Soviet Assassin responsible for who knows how much chaos. He never had a choice. He was forced into it, he didn’t even have a chance to FIGHT it, and when he finally started regaining fragments of who he was, they stuck him in a stasis tube and left him there. Bucky never chose any of that, Bucky was never RESPONSIBLE for the Winter Soldier. He didn’t create the Soldier, he didn’t have anything to do with it. It was all a mess in his head, forced in there to silence him, to replace him with the Soldier who would do the Soviets’ bidding. He never had a choice. And if he had, that wouldn’t be it.
Don’t compare them. Just don’t. Loki is a cold-blooded villain. Bucky is a victim.
