History: (Captain America I#220/2) - Trying to make a name for himself in the super-villain underworld, Mortimer Freebish decided to kidnap Redwing, Falcon's pet partner. While waiting for Falcon to show himself, Mortimer tried to find a cool super-villain name, but he couldn't decide between Arrow Ace and Arrowmaster. Before he could decide, Falcon showed up, and the two of them began to fight. Falcon was the smarter and more experienced of the two, and he managed to easily defeat the super-villain wannabe.
