In his original appearance, New York Yankee's batboy Fred Davis Jr. helped out his hero Bucky & the Liberty Legion to stop the Red Skull & free the Invaders by dressing up as Bucky as a decoy. Much later, after the loss of the original Captain America & Bucky, President F.D.R. assigned William Naslund (formerly Spirit of '76) to be the new Captain America as well as Fred Davis to be the new Bucky. As a member of the Invaders & All-Winners Squad and also as partner to both Captain America 2 (Naslund) & Captain America 3 (Jeff Mace, the Patriot), Davis had many adventures as the 2nd Bucky. Davis was shot and wounded in 1949, forcing him to retire as Bucky. Davis was then a founding member of the V-Battalion & has served on their Penance Council since it began and until he was killed by Leonard Nokonov.
This character should only be used in issues where Fred Davis appears, but DOES NOT appear as Bucky.
Fred's believed appearances as Bucky in Captain America Comics & All-Winners Comics were retconned in, so his first actual appearance is in Marvel Premiere #30, even though the golden age issues listed predate his 1st appearance.
