    The Falcon

    No Caption Provided

    With Sam Wilson, one of my favorite comic book characters, in line to become the new Captain America, I figure it's time that I show everyone why they should respect him. So without further ado, let's see what this underrated wingman is capable of.

    Skill

    No Caption Provided
    No Caption Provided

    Falcon has been extensively trained by Captain America and Bucky Barnes.

    No Caption Provided

    Has YEARS of field experience with Steve Rogers.

    Fights

    Falcon escapes after being captured by a corrupt militia, he then maneuvers around a train and dodges dozens of lasers before taking them all down.

    In reverse order

    A brainwashed Falcon stomps Hawkeye.

    Falcon's fight with Nuke, now even though Falcon loses this is really impressive considering Nuke is bulletproof and has literally shrugged off attacks by Daredevil and he only beat him with a surprise knife attack. Falcon was actually hurting him with punches. On top of this, Nuke had just gotten done throwing Captain America around.

    No Caption Provided

    Fights Silencer, dodging a ray gun and literally throwing him with a punch, Silencer runs away in the next panel.

    Falcon gets ambushed by a gang and singlehandily destroys them, ragdolling a few of them.

    No Caption Provided

    Fights a large group of A.I.M goons with Black Widow, even while fighting a group on his own, Falcon watches out for her.

    Fights and defeats a malfunctioning Sentinel.

    No Caption Provided

    Beats 50's Captain America, who is greatly enhanced and a multi-tonner, until being knocked out by the imposter Bucky, who also has super strength.

    No Caption Provided

    KOs a mystically enhanced being.

    No Caption Provided

    No Caption Provided

    During AvX, fights Mimic and almost wins, he only even loses because Rogue, who had absorbed She-Hulk's power, jumps up and slams him into the ground to steal his power and save Mimic.

    This is Falcon's fight with Electro during his mini, it's kinda cut up, but Falcon and Electro fight around for awhile until they eventually run into the gang he was going after in the first place, then Cap shows up, fights Electro for a bit while Falcon goes to deal with the gang, then Falcon comes out of nowhere and kos Electro.

    Reverse order.

    Falcon singlehandedly saves Bucky from the Thunderbolts, it's notable that he one shots Paladin, beats up on and basically throws Nuke, and then beats Ghost. I'm missing the a single page that is partially featured on the various Falcon reflexes and speed feats from below, and in case anyone is curious this is from Captain America: Reborn #3

    1. One hit KOs a man.
    2. Stomps Dum Dum Dugan.
    3. Again, Falcon took on and defeated Ghost during Reborn.
    4. He's also fought and defeated Crossbones.

    Durability

    @comicstooge: Hopefully, plus, I'm hoping that between that and The Winter Soldier movie, Sam will increase in popularity. He's a great character when written correctly.

    @keenko: Wow this is really good! Very impressed. My only gripes are that the order of the scans are sometimes wonky and that the captions describing what happens in the scans fluctuate from being on top and bottom. Nothing too big but it would be easier on the eyes if those two were improved upon. Anyways, nice respect thread man! Will definitely use this for reference whenever Falcon is included in a fight.

    @yourneighborhoodcomicgeek: Thanks, man! I appreciate it. I think I fixed the instances of the captions and I'm trying to fix the but every time I try and reupload them directly to the post it says something about the length and won't post them. Again, it means a lot, bud. Thank you.

    @keenko Lol. I have some feats from the (sadly underappreciated) Christopher Priest run on Captain America and the Falcon if you'd like to add them to the respect thread.
