Created by Stan Lee in addition to Gene Colan, Sam debuted in 1969's Captain America #117. Operating under the name Falcon, he was amongst traditional comics' first African-American superheroes, developing in the identical number of years as Black Panther, Luke Cage, in addition to Blade. Able to fly with utilizing mechanical wings in addition to telepathically connect with birds, he operated as a reoccuring presence throughout the years, combating in addition to The Avengers in addition to many different other times.
