History:

(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 Amplifier 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 dungeons. They 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 distress 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 the 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 as over a thousand other humans internationally, by the obsessive extraterrestrial Collector 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 "Neanderthals."

(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 from the 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.
