CAPTAIN AMERICA #144 (1971): Falcon’s New Costume

Captain America and Falcon get a divorce.

OK, not really.

Lots happens in this issue, including an extended guest appearance by Richard M. Nixon, who is promoting updated life model decoys.  But I really like this scene…

…Where Fury is bureaucrated to death.

We also meet SHIELD’s Femme Force, which is totally unnecessary and stupid.

And a source for Cap to keep proving how backwards and sexist he is.

Here’s some combat.

And here’s the origin of Falcon’s new threads.

Much better. People love this costume.
