"That was your friend. Sorry about that."
"I should be sad, but I'm not."
Okoye and Winter Soldier[src]

Samuel Thomas "Sam" Wilson, also known as Falcon, was a member of the Avengers. In 2018, he was infected with the Quantum Virus which turned him into a zombie. He attacked Bucky Barnes before being killed by Okoye. Later, Falcon was somehow resurrected and summoned to another world by Doctor Strange to help confront Ultron, but was swiftly killed again when the AI destroyed the planet he was on.

Hunting Down the Survivors

Falcon is sliced by Okoye

In 2018, while performing duties as an Avenger, Falcon became infected by the Quantum Virus and transformed into a zombie. Falcon, along with Hawkeye, then attacked the survivors at the Grand Central Terminal. He fought against Bucky Barnes, but had no memory of their friendship. He backed Barnes into a corner to infect him, but was killed by Okoye, who vertically bisected him with her spear.[1]

Battle for the Multiverse

Attacking Ultron

Later, another universe’s Doctor Strange summoned him alongside other zombies to an uninhabited planet on another universe to distract Ultron. However, Ultron blasted Falcon and the other zombies away and killed all of them by using the full power of the Infinity Stones to obliterate the planet.[2]

Powers and Abilities


Falcon as a zombie

  • Zombie Physiology: Wilson was infected with an encephalopathic virus that overloaded his brain's limbic system, turning him into a zombie.
    • Infection: Like any zombies, Wilson is capable of spreading encephalopathic virus to others by biting or scratching which would turn them into zombies.

EXO-7 Falcon Capabilities

  • Flight: The primary purpose of the EXO-7's wings is to facilitate powered flight. Thrust is provided by three miniaturized jet engines, housed in the backpack. They provide something on the order of 1000 lbs of thrust, which is enough rescue a grown adult from free fall, and ascend, thus countering the rescue's downward momentum. The primary control interface is a pair of hand grips, mounted on the wings themselves, and are supplemented with a cybernetic link to a pair of goggles. For safety reasons, the EXO-7 has a built-in parachute, in case it malfunctions or sustains damage.
    • Extreme Force Generation: When moving at high speeds, Falcon is capable of utilizing his momentum and weight to generate large amounts of force.
  • Enhanced Vision: The EXO-7's Combat Goggles allow Wilson to view multiple spectrum and see objects that are either too far away or too small to be seen by the naked eye.


  • Expert Martial Artist: Wilson has received basic hand-to-hand combat training. Wilson's fighting style include a combination of firearm improvisation, flight maneuvers such as swooping and aerial grappling, and modern army combatives. He retained this ability as a zombie, being able to go toe-to-toe with Winter Soldier.
  • Expert Marksman: Wilson is a highly trained marksman, as he has shown great accuracy with his retractable sidearms and U.S. military firearms.
  • Expert Acrobat: Wilson is a highly trained acrobat capable of withstanding constant equilibrium shifting during flight.
  • Master Pilot: Wilson displays the utmost skill when flying with his EXO wings; he is capable of performing many advanced and complicated maneuvers while in midair, without losing focus on his objectives, targets, or pursuers. He retained this ability as a zombie.


Other Equipment

  • EXO-7 Falcon: A jetpack with wings that enables the user to fly. The wings can also be used as defensive and offensive weapons, as they are highly flexible and bulletproof. Due to the wings length, they can be used as mid-ranged weapons, mostly for stabbing.
    • Combat Goggles: Falcon has a pair of protective goggles that not only protect his eyes during high speed flight, but also possess telescopic and microscopic vision.
