Comments:Marvel Legacy.” “Red Ledger Part 3 (of 5)”--Cover. First appearance of the second Orphan Maker (Anya) and maybe the last. And, in a rare gag for a Marvel comic, Bucky is said to be the world's second most famous sidekick, after Robin. (“Who the $#%@ is Robin?”)

Tales of Suspense #102 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Having captured Yelena Belova, the second Black Widow, Hawkeye and Winter Soldier take her back to her apartment for questioning. To Clint's surprise, Bucky only asks a routine question about whether she has been to Russia and they leave. They wait across the street until she exits and follow her down into the subway. There's the sound of a gunshot, Bucky is knocked down and his gun stolen, and after the crowd clears they see Belova dead on the tracks, their only lead gone. Clint has someone else in mind though....

At the Vault, high-security prison for dangerous criminals, Clint interviews former Red Room operative Rodion Steshenko and shows him Bucky waiting outside the building. Fearing that the Winter Soldier is after him, Steshenko gives up a name: Alexander Cady, New York contact. The two head to Cady's home to find him dead, shot with Bucky's gun and the calling card of Winter Soldier at the scene. They get away from the police and hole up in a cheap motel. Studying a ledger found at Cady's house, Winter Soldier gets another clue and they head to a Red Room safe house. Watching from across the street they are caught by dagger-wielding assassin Orphan Maker (a new female one named Anya). After a brief scuffle, Anya tells them that a new Red Room faction is killing former agents, led by... And then she is shot in the the real Black Widow, Natasha Romanoff....
