The Falcon - Flyin' High In The Friendly Sky - Niel Jacoby

Panel 1: we see what looks like a Predator drone the size of a Tic-Tac container hovering in the vent of an apartment building. Through the vent, we can see a HYDRA meeting adjourning.

HYDRA 1: ALRIGHT, I'LL DELIVER THE PLANS TO MAX FROM THE ASTORIA CELL, AND IT SHOULD ALL GO ACCORDING TO PLAN.

HYDRA 2: GOOD TO KNOW. SAME TIME NEXT WEEK?

HYDRA 1: YOU KNOW IT.

Panel 2: We see Sam "Falcon" Wilson in the SHIELD helicarrier's drone control bay, listening intently. There are a few other crewmen in the shot. Wilson is smirking.

RADIO: -KNOW IT.

WILSON: LOOKS LIKE WE'VE GOT ALL WE NEED. REQUESTING APPROVAL OF EXPLOSIVE STRIKE.

CREWMAN: HEH, NOT LIKE YOU NEED IT.

WILSON: FIRING.

Panel 3: we see the apartment building from P1 as it explodes from the inside.

SFX: FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOSH!

Panel 4: Sam Wilson takes off his headphones as one of the crewmen is about to throw him a beer from a cooler under one of the tables.

Sam: THAT'S ANOTHER HYDRA PLOT TAKEN CARE OF. WHAT IS THAT, 3 THIS MONTH?

Crewman: HAT TRICK!

Panel 5: Sam catches the beer as the rest of the room lifts theirs in celebration. A crewman of noticably lower rank looks apprehensive.

All: TO THE FALCON!

Younger Crewman: HEY, WEREN'T THERE PEOPLE IN THERE?

Panel 6: Wilson shrugs, beer in hand.

Wilson: COLLATERAL DAMAGE.

Crewman(OP): HEY WILSON, COMMANDER FURY WANTS TO SEE YOU!

  1. This is a surprisingly dark lighthearted piece, Niel. I would be interested to see where this would go - and also why Falcon is so cavalier about taking those lives.
