Sam Wilson was born to Paul and Darlene Wilson. As a child Sam took a interest in birds. Sam's Grandfather Fredrick used to take him to the bird house where Sam would draw the birds he saw.
When Sam was in High School he realised that his dream was to fly and to draw and he dropped out. Sam became a Freelance Artist and painted for money as his parents didn't forgive him for dropping out. Sam then saw a innocent man getting beaten up and acted quickly, Sam saved the man who told him his name was Blake Delmar. Sam took Delmar to the local hospital after Delmar told him that he worked for the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division and that they could use someone like him.
Sam Wilson now a member of S.H.I.E.L.D, was called to Nick Fury's office where he told him that he would go under a operation called Project: Wingspan. Sam was then taken to a operation room where they cut his back open and placed in a collapsable Wing in both sides. When Sam awoke he used his mind to open up the wings and he took the name Falcon.
Sam now Falcon was assigned on a mission to Russia where he would be with Captain America and Black Widow. The Captain and Sam bonded over the flight to Russia on how they both grew up in a tough neighbourhood. In Russia, Sam and Steve broke into a research Lab and found Baron Zemo trying to recreate the SSS. Sam chased after while Cap destroyed the machines but Zemo set of a grenade destroying Falcons wings and putting him in a coma. Cap grabbed Sam and left for the Hellicarrier where they put Sam on life Support and cut out the damaged wings.
Sam woke up with no wings in his back and asked Steve where they had gone to which Steve told him they were destroyed. Steve then took Sam to the Armour Room and showed him his new suit. Sam asked him where he got it from to which Steve said “From a Old Friend.
When Victor Von Doom escaped his S.H.I.E.L.D cell he suited up as Dr. Doom and began an attack on Manhattan. Sam, Steve, Clint and Natasha were sent to Manhattan where they saw Iron Man, Hank Pym in his Ant-Man alias along with his wife Janet and Thor.
The 7 Heroes battled Dr. Doom who defeated them with ease before killing them he was attacked by Hulk who knocked him. Sam told the 8 heroes that they saved the world much to Hulks annoyance as he thought of himself as saving the world. Sam said they should all become The Avengers a team that saved the world on a daily basis.
Powers and Abilities
- Telepathic link: Sam was given the ability to telepathically link with birds endowed by the Red Skull using the Cosmic Cube. This link is strongest with his companion Redwing but he is also able to extend his empathic link to other birds making it possible for him see through their eyes. He has also shown the ability to control birds. These abilities apply to the entirety of birds.
- Master Martial Artist: Sam has been trained by Captain America in multiple martial arts making him a dangerous combatant. His skills enable him to defeat some of the greatest trained and skilled martial artists in the world such as multiple elite Spetsnaz soldiers at a time and superhumans as strong as the Wrecking Crew members.
- Master Acrobat: He was was a skilled athlete in his youth to young adulthood and later underwent rigorous training in gymnastics and acrobatics with Captain America and his skills are roughly on par with Steve Rogers.
- Master Aerialist: Sam is also an extraordinary aerialist due to his training with Captain America and to his own experimentation with his "hard light harness". Due to his abilities and experience in martial arts and aerialism, he is one of the best aerial fighters in the world exceeding the skill of other flyers such as Iron Man and Ms. Marvel.
- Falcon's Wings: Captain America supplied Falcon with a new costume and wings. An emitter array on Falcon's back creates holographic "hard light" wings with a maximum wingspan of up to 50 feet (15 m). Controlled by a cybernetic link, the wings can be instantly reconfigured into "dozens of different cruise configurations". A "magnetic drive", in turn, provides the thrust needed to get Falcon airborne. The emitter also possesses GPS Jamming Devices that prevent satellite tracking, while the hard-light wings interfere with infra-red tracking. A Vibranium microweave was added to the costume itself, making Falcon resistant to small arms fire. The entire system is controlled mentally through cybernetic circuitry in the Falcon's mask. The costume has in the past featured a hidden "talon," a cybernetically controlled grappling line built into the gauntlets of his costume which he uses to entangle opponents, hook objects, or for swinging and climbing when his wings are detached. The costume's visors come equipped with various capabilities, including infrared lenses, giving him the ability to see objects by their infrared signature at night, magnification capabilities, and remote imaging sensors that allow a full 360 degree of vision when activated. The cowl also has a wide band receiver and transmitter with an unspecified range. The suit was originally built by Wakandan scientists, with costume modifications by Desmond Burrell.
