Quote:His new bulletproof costume looks whatever the current street slang is for cool.
Quote:20 pages of the ex-Captain Samerica's personality/motivation reclaiming his signature Falcon role is more of the same we saw all through Secret Empire. Good for new readers but somewhat rehash for faithful followers. Except, that bit about his father, the pastor, being a lying landlord was new, right?
Quote:Redwing yanking that handgun was such a cool moment that barely distracted the ignoring of his lazer-eyed vampire-bird status.
Quote:Raytriot comes across as nothing special as of yet. Will he be like Mircochip was to Punisher only more athletic? Hopefully we can assume that Avengers Academy has long since been retroactively been closed - 'cuz why wouldn't he just join that program rather than continue as sidekick for an active Avenger? And speaking of sidekicks, please please please have Joaquin officially and immediately find just cause to give up his "Falcon" codename!!!
Quote:They really should've given more details to this "Headquarters" that Sam mentions and credence to Misty still being Team Sam after Secret Empire and after The Jane Affair. Also, Falc's off panel team up with disbanded Unity Squad Avenger Doc Voodoo was unfulfilling if not just lazy namedropping - specifically/deliberately using another black superhero.
Quote:The gang violence plot pitch came across as... average. Same grade as this premiere gets. With the exception of the last page surprise of who's behind it all. At least this Return of Blackheart seems to offer more story potential than his stint as the premiere foe in current the volume's Spider-Miles #1.
Quote:This panel is crazy and the most... curious thing to this relaunch:
That comment is extremely curious and potentially outrageous panel. So, Sam seemingly suggests that Kobik's (whacky) S.E. history rewrite is still real to him? That's whack. It might be true by Marvel's direction - probably the "Icer" thing: https://www.comicboards.com/php/show.php?msg=camb-2017101020210932 - but it's still just whack.

It's a shame that you don't like the comics Falcon, ...the movie Falcon, Ex-fighter pilot/soldier turned therapist, ...liken to Hawkeye and Blackwidow origins.
Wings built by Black Panther, working in a Welfare or Employment office and dealing with people and the community. He originally started fighting some Ex-Nazi soldiers with only a bird and whatever he could find on a tropical island, until the Red Skull messed with him with the cosmic cube. Likes girls who is abrasive to him or unattainable, Leah was always dumping him for a guy named Ralf, Misty is hostile to him, ...yet he likes them.
However, there is that new Patriot, ...how's Falcon going to react when he realizes that it's Roscoe Captain America. The kid that Falcon trained to fight badguys until the Red Skull showed up and killed Roscoe. I know Steve Rogers took the blame, but that kid must have affected Sam Wilson.
I think there's a lot of story and character there to build upon a long lasting comic series.
