5 Things To Know About Sam Wilson, The New Captain America
The Falcon Can Soar With (And Talks With) The Birds Of The WorldAs stated before, Sam Wilson and his pet falcon Redwing forged a strong mental link after the Red Skull had used the Cosmic Cube on the two of them. However, that's just the tip of the iceberg. Not only do the trainer and the animal have a mental link, but Sam can also see through the eyes of Redwing. Eventually, he hones his abilities and becomes able to do this with any bird in the world, as well as gaining the power to access the memories of the birds of the world. Fanciful powers aside, Wilson does have a lot of practical skills he can use. The Falcon is also proficient in hand-to-hand combat, as well as gymnastics.
As for his flight abilities, they are a feat of man-made engineering. The Falcon's original flight harness had detachable wings that were powered by jets and solar energy, but as any good hero will tell you though, that first suit never lasts forever. Surely enough the harness was destroyed in Captain America and the Falcon #2. Thanks to some help from the Black Panther, The Falcon got a costume upgrade with all sorts of gadgets (such as GPS jamming, a grappling hook, and Vibranium micro-weave fiber, which is resistant to "small arms fire").
