This is Anthony Mackie.
You may recognize him from Real Steel, The Hurt Locker, or in 8 Mile as Papa Doc.
This is the Falcon.
Falcon can mentally connect with his own falcon, Red Wing and see the world through his eyes. Recently Falcon has learned how to see through the eyes of any bird. Born Sam Wilson and from Harlem NY, Falcon will fit in very well with the Brooklyn raised Captain America. He also has a super suit which allows him to fly, increases his strength and vision, and gives him many other bird based and inspired powers.
Word is that the Falcon will be a major part of the upcoming movie Captain America: Winter Soldier.
