armor augmentations. He has a telepathic link with a pet falcon that
uses for mission support. Like other Avengers,

(Avengers United They Stand#3 (fb) - BTS) - Sam
Wilson was inspired to become a hero by the early movies of Simon
Williams (Wonder Man), even though they were considered tacky by some.
At some point, he gained a flying suit and a telepathic link with a
falcon he named Redwing.
(Avengers United They Stand#6
(fb) - BTS) - Falcon
adventured with Captain America.
(Avengers United They Stand#3
(fb) - BTS) - Falcon
became a local New York hero before joining the Avengers alongside the
synthezoid Vision in the wake of Wonder Man's apparent death. He moved
into Avengers Mansion
(with its attendant Jarvis) alongside other Avengers.
(Avengers United They Stand#3) - In Avengers Mansion, the Avengers' new line up ruminated over their past experiences with Wonder Man, including Falcon's fondness for Williams' action movies and they decided to watch one in memoriam.
(Avengers United They Stand#4)
- Falcon joined
the other Avengers on a mission to stop the villainous Black Knight
from selling the destructive Ultimate
to the Latverian despot Dr. Doom, but they were all captured by Doom's
robot sentries after crossing the closed borders. Doom's
power-neutralizing collars also inhibited Falcon's
connection to Redwing and the Avengers were locked in the castle
and the Black Knight managed to escape Latveria; the Falcon kept
Scarlet Witch aloft.
(Avengers United They Stand#5)
- Despite several
Avengers' doubts on the loyalty of pardoned ex-Hydra agent Black Widow
and how Hawkeye's
romantic feelings for her may have clouded his judgment over her recent
call, Falcon joined Hawkeye's team alongside Scarlet Witch and Vision
to infiltrate an A.I.M.
base in a rescue bid (as he considered himself neutral). However, while
four Avengers were able to quell the A.I.M.
science-based weapons with Falcon using his bulletproof wings, the
A.I.M. fighters fled, including Black
Widow and her presumed-dead husband. Disappointed, the Avengers escaped
the self-detonation of the A.I.M. base.
(Avengers United They Stand#6) - Falcon was
captured alongside other Avengers training at Avengers Mansion, as well
a thousand other humans internationally, by the obsessive
using his teleportation orbs and transported to his spaceship into
individual cells, where in his giant flesh form he informed them he was
saving them from an impending extinction event. Disease-cleansing gas
knocked them out before they were released into a
jungle zone. The Avengers split into two teams; Falcon stayed
with Ant-Man's group alongside Captain America and Black Panther to
explore a nearby citadel but were captured by intelligent ape-like
(Avengers United They Stand#7)
- Falcon and the rest
of his small team, plus civilians (including physicist Dr. Richard
Hawkins) accompanying them, were taken before Wise Eye and the
"Neanderthal" council, but escaped and soon met Ant-Man's team.
Aided by Moon Boy and Devil Dinosaur, they broke through the doors back
into the cell-lined
corridor where they again encountered the Collector. With the Avengers
determined to be free, Scarlet Witch and
Vision combined their hex and solar blast powers, unexpectedly
disintegrating the Collector's flesh form, but he generated a new body
ship's floor. Concerned at their destructive nature, the Collector
offered the captive humans the choice to return to Earth; only a few
chose to accompany the Avengers home in a separate spaceship.

Falcon of Earth-730834 has no known connections to:
Redwing was Falcon's faithful falcon that was linked

support in reconnaissance and battle. Redwing was left behind on Earth
when the Collector kidnapped the Avengers for his assortment of humans.
