After reading CW#2 and seeing Falcon backing Captain America up, two questions occured to me.

1) Falcon's identity is already publically known, is it not?
2) Is Falcon one of the 198 mutants left? Or is he powerless now?

Falcon was never a mutant.

Then how did he communicate with birds?

You're right. I think it was explained as he got the power by being messed with the Red Skull or something.

Yes he was. Professor X theorized that the cosmic cube unlocked a surpressed mutant gene, therby enhancing the psychic link Falcon had with Redwing.

He was enough of a mutant to be detectable by Sentinels scanning for mutant activity.

We've gone over this before. He was established as a mutant in his first solo series, but it was retconned.

PAD later revealed in X-Factor that the Sentinels were just playing a practical joke on Falcon.

According to this, the Red Skull used the Cosmic Cube to give Falcon his powers.

From what I vaguely recall, his only power is telepathy with his bird, and that came from the Cosmic Cube.


And I CAN'T WAIT for the Ultimate Cap and Falcon mini.

Thats going to be awesome.

Seriously? That may be the silliest retcon ever.

So is his identity still public knowledge? Or did they write that out, too?

Good joke Ben.

No T, PAD did retcon Lockjaw being a deformed humanoid Inhuman in X-factor though.

So where DID they retcon the Falcon as mutant thing?
