Item Biography

"The Falcon Fights Alone!"

Falcon stands his ground against the seemingly reunited duo of Captain America and Bucky. Anachronistic idioms and polarized racial attitudes mark the two as not who they appear to be, regardless of the fact that Falc had heard the voice, and seen the face of Steve Rogers when he had unmasked the faux Captain America.

The pair fight with a vicious, merciless intensity not previously associated with either name, and beat Falc unconscious. They leave the scene, but not before being spotted by Sam Wilson's young nephew, Jody.

Jody spreads word that the Falcon's been taken by force to Rafe Michel, street revolutionary. The Harlem community rallies behind Rafe and Leila to help out a brother in need.

Down in the Caribbean, the real Steve Rogers and Sharon Carter debate each other's tanning potential when a muscle-brained body-builder named Arnold(!) makes a grab for Sharon. She dismisses his attention forthwith, but only succeeds in getting him mad. Leaving Steve to administer the coup-de-grâce.

The false Cap takes inordinate pleasure in beating information out of the bound Falcon while Bucky eggs him on. The crew from Harlem crash down the door of the warehouse and floor Bucky. The ersatz Cap bundles his way out, dragging his partner along too. Falc gives thanks where they're due.

When the combined resources of one man and his bird fail to turn up any leads to the renegade twosome, Falcon resolves to contact Cap's other partners; the Avengers.

Sam explains that they have to get word to the real Cap on his beach holiday, when the Vision calmly announces he has just left Captain America alone in the monitor room.

The penny drops, and the Avengers dash downstairs, but find no sign of a Star-Spangled Sentinel. Tellingly, the video screen was focused on the lounge where the team had been conversing. It is evident that the imposter now knows where to find the real Cap.
