Between the release of Avengers: Endgame and the final season of Game of Thrones, this last month as been huge in the wide world of pop culture. Fans of both franchises have been combining content in various ways, from awesome fan art to hilarious character comparisons. The fact that both feature prominent characters named Stark has been an ongoing joke on the Internet, and has led to some interesting observations. Most recently, one fan on Reddit pointed out that Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier managed to kill more Starks than the Night King.
“When you realize Bucky killed more Starks than the Night King,” u/ZagratheWolf wrote.
While the Night King managed to die during the Battle of Winterfell without killing a single Stark, The Winter Soldier succeeding in killing Tony’s parents back in the ‘90s. Even if you count Theon Greyjoy, who died an honorary Stark, Bucky still has the higher Stark kill count.
Many fans commented on the post, which was shared to the r/freefolk subreddit.
“Bucky is the true winter soldier,” u/HoetsieFoetsie wrote.
