One of Marvel's most beloved characters is getting a new identity.

That's right. One of the only superheroes in the Marvel universe *not* to have been played by multiple characters is finally joining the ranks. With Sam Wilson carrying the shield as Captain America, someone else will be taking his place as The Falcon in January 2016. The question is: who?

Sam Wilson is an incredibly important character

The Falcon was one of the first African-American superheroes in mainstream comics (though Black Panther predated him). While the impact of the character is different today, the significance is still very much there. So who should take up the wings? @LAVONYORK @karenorchado @Arcticfox @ RoninGaijin @MailayasiaTyler @tardisdragon7 @AimeeH @VixenViVi @MoisEsGaray @CandaceJordan @loftonc16 @GinnaL13 @BeannachtOraibh @WayneWinquist @RedWonderland @DonovanMoore @magicfalls @dustinparson @DasiaB @ChosenKnight @jeremimzy17 @animechild51 @thewolfnola @AdekolaOmole @trin1991 @ChanceGonzalez @shantalcamara @ComicGeek94 Are there any characters in a prime position to take over?

@ScriptedSoldier yeah! And since this would be the first time the role is getting reinvented they really have a lot of flexibility.

@shannonl5 Exactly! So here's hoping they don't screw it up.

@ScriptedSoldier I hope so! Since the character has so much important history it would be a shame to lose that. @Raadhiyah had you heard about this? Who do you think will take over?
