People can choose between being good and evil. He didn’t have a choice. He didn’t have free will. He was made to be evil, but he’s not a villain. Bucky was as much a victim as the people the Winter Soldier killed.
Not only that, it’s not like he was treated well either. He wasn’t some petted and favored assassin. He was abused. Horribly so. So not only does he not have free will and not only is he used for evil against his will and without his knowledge, he’s abused, imprisoned and dehumanized on top of it. And he doesn’t even have the free will to hate.
If we’re looking for one of the most mistreated, tragic figures in comics, Bucky is it.

Born in England but spending some of her early years in India, Pauline Baynes became most famous for her pen and ink drawings that graced the pages of many children’s literature. After a job in the Ministry of Defence drawing demonstration models, she was soon moved to the map making department. This was an obvious boon to her career when she went on to create maps for both C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. She is most well known for illustrating the entire Chronicles of Narnia, even doing different covers for various editions throughout her entire life.
"This is no time to be ashamed of the Gospel. It is the time to preach it from the rooftops. Do not be afraid to break out of comfortable and routine modes of living in order to take up the challenge of making Christ known in the modern metropolis." ~ Pope John Paul II
