Somebody actually made a Chuck Norris joke. Is that supposed to be a bannable offense or something?
Anyway. let's look at the evidence.
Evidence that would suggest Human Torch killed Hitler.
Evidence that would suggest Bucky killed Hitler.

It's now Bucky who really killed Hitler, right?
As I mentioned earlier, Hitler does return as Hate Monger and is killed again and again and again. So in theory it's possible that Bucky as Winter Soldier at some point killed Hitler at some point in time.
Brock Samson killed Hitler.
I kind of see how Bucky could have been joking there. It was a really tense moment, and he could have been trying to break the ice. Seems more like a awkward Spidey type joke.
I'll just believe Jim Hammond killed Hitler, though. Awesomely, might I add.
If I have learned anything about history, it's that Nazis are always trying to clone and bring back Hitler. Sure the Human Torch killed him the first time, but later Hellboy killed him as well. Bucky as the Winter Soldier offed Hitler another time upon his return, and whoever's killed Hate Monger in Marvel or Brain Ape in Savage Dragon has offed the guy too. And most recently, Brock Samson killed Hitler, with a knife, he now gets to be on the not too long, but still growing list of "People who have killed Hitler".
Noh-Varr Reviews: The Silence of Our Friends by Mark Long, Jim Demonakos, and Nate Powell.
Even though it turned out to be a VR program or something similar, this story was pretty awesome as Fury tried to kill Hitler.
I rule me.
they both killed him a little too late. they must have been working on CPT (Costumed People Time).
60% percent of the time, Ant-Man beats Doom every time
yeah i can see the soviets sending the winter solider out to kill a clone of hitler...they have a huge reason to hate him obviously as the russians suffered more casualties in wwII than any other nation...so they got wind of a hitler clone and sent buck to snuff him...end of post lol
Thinking about it more, I could almost understand if they did want to retcon things so that Bucky killed Hitler instead. I don't agree with it... but I would understand it.
Killing Hitler is sort of a big deal, and Bucky is a more usable character. They could potentially do all sorts of things with Bucky being Hitlers killer... with Torch I'm not sure if that's not somewhat wasted on him. Though Torch is back too, so I might be speaking too soon.
But honestly, this whole thing could be one of several things. It could be a retcon. Or it could simply be a joke Bendis threw in there. It could be a situation where BOTH killed Hitler at different times (because of Hitler coming back after he suppossedly died). Or perhaps it's just a flat out mistake on Bendis part. It's tough to tell right now, since it was just a single line on Buckys part.
I choose to accept the Human Torch killing Hitler and ignore Bendis' poor research Bucky theory. Bucky has enough retcon kewlness tacked onto him without needing hitler's death added to his resume.
EDIT: You know what, no. I'm just not...I can't post that. I really can't.
I rule me.
