Bucky Barnes was the best friend of Steve Rogers, the man who would eventually become Captain America after receiving the Super Soldier Serum. They grew up together, both enlisted into the military, and many years later, were both members of The Avengers. The character has been around for decades; but there was a very violent and pivotal time in Bucky's life, when he first became the Winter Soldier. That was something that they kind of dealt with in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
We never really got to see the decades worth of missions the Winter Soldier was sent out on, but we definitely got a sense of them. In Captain America: The First Avenger, Bucky was the best friend of Steve Rogers, and they went into battle together - when Bucky seemingly died, falling to his death. Only Steve had no idea that his best friend was still alive, being taken by Russians who brainwashed him to be an assassin. They also gave him a version of the Super Soldier Serum, making his physically equal to Cap. He's really the perfect adversary. They kept him on ice and kept him alive and young for several decades.
Just like in the comics, Captain America comes across the Winter Soldier, revealed to be Bucky, and is confronted with the inevitability of having to take him out. But he couldn't and by the end of the movie, the two parted ways, though Cap is still looking for him. He finds him in Captain America: Civil War, coming out this summer. From the looks of the trailer, the two will be rebuilding their friendship and no longer seeing the other as an enemy. If you don't know that much about Bucky/the Winter Soldier, this is definitely a must-read.

The Red Room is an espionage training facility at Department X, a covert Soviet agency that produced super-soldiers. It was here that Black Widow (Natalia/Natasha Romanoff) received her training, and the Winter Soldier trained her as part of the Black Widow Ops Program. As they spent more time together, they grew close and fell in love. Natasha was promised to another man, Alexi Shostakov, but she loved Bucky more. Plus, he would often sneak into her sleeping quarters in the middle of the night for some late-night training.
