SAMUEL WILSON aka FALCON
Art from BLACK PANTHER MWF URBAN JUNGLE by Francesco Francavilla
Continuing this BLACK SUPERHEROES HISTORY WEEK. with the very first African-American hero: FALCON.
I said very first
cause even if Samuel Wilson
(also known as FALCON
) was created in 1969 (by writer Stan Lee
and artist Gene Colan)
, so a few years after BLACK PANTHER, his fictional nationality was African-American (whereas Black Panther’s is African).
His first appearance was in Captain America 117
, published in September of 1969.
Tune in tomorrow for more Black Superheroes!
