Publication history

To understand just how important this decision is, and why it was one that many fans were waiting for, let's look back at the comics that inspired MCU. Sam Wilson and Captain America have long been inextricably connected in comics. From Falcons ' first appearance in 1969s Captain America 117, two characters have had deep connection. Steve Rogers was the one who encouraged Sam to take on the heroic mantle, taking inspiration from wild bird hed train. The connection between the pair was so strong that in 1971, Marvel changed the publication title of flagship Cap book to Captain America and Falcon. It stay that way for seven whole years. Their close relationship, along with Sams heroism and moral compass, lead to large segment of fans wondering whether Falcon would ever take on the mantle of Captain America. In 2014, he finally did just that.

The "Anti-Cap"

The main supporting character around which most of the storylines in Captain America and Falcon revolve was known as Anti-Cap. The name Anti-Cap for this character came from line in issue 2: no official in-Universe real name or code name was ever revealed and this nickname became the character's de facto name. Anti-Cap is Navy SEAL operative of the Office of Naval Intelligence. He first attempted to join the United States armed forces after his girlfriend was killed in the Oklahoma City bombing, but was rejected for health reasons. After this failure, he was recruited by ONI in order to take part in a black op program designed to create a secret Super operative to be used exclusively by ONI. His superhuman strength and endurance come from the drug name Acetovaxidol, which is regulated in his system via computer graft to his spine. Acetovaxidol is a drug that had appeared previously in the Marvel Universe, as the source of Luke Cage's powers. Unlike Cage's constant internal supply, Anti-Cap gets his Acetovaxidol via skin patches. Without fixes these patches give him, Anti-Cap would lapse in possibly fatal withdrawal symptoms.
