Re: James Buchanan Barnes
The Barnes boy has proven more than capable. I know it's unorthodox, but I'd like your permission to bring him in for training. He's learned a lot from Captain America, but I think he can be a powerful asset in his own right. He's a talented figher, and he's got a certain moral flexibility that makes him a better fit for certain missions than Cap.
Let's face it. Our super soldier won't live forever, but if we start working with him now, the boy could be a worthy heir to the shield.

I came across this memo filed in the National Archives. If my hunch is correct, we need to act quickly on this. I'll set up a briefing ASAP!
