Today we'll be reviewing Sam Wilson from Sinister


Personally I definitely feel that the Falcon warranted making 5 versions of him in this set.  Who is more loved then Falcon?  Falcon fans will scurry to get his Rookie, Experienced and Veteran piece.  Then work hard to win the Tournament to grab that Falcon LE and THEN get the mail away Falcon as well.  Finally those rabid Falcon fans will be satisfied. 


Exclusive: 53 points, Shield Team



MOVEMENT:  10 with Charge is not too bad for a flyer I guess.  Charge is always okay, just not great.


ATTACK:  9 attack is not fabulous.  No abilities is even less fabulous.


DEFENSE:  17 with Willpower is respectable.  Energy/Shield Deflection is not really useful for a Close Combat figure.  I always like Willpower at the end.


DAMAGE:  3 Damage with Leadership.  Not too bad.  Not scary but Leadership should be on lower point figures.  Close Combat keeps him dangerous at the end.  The 2 damage in the middle is really terrible.  


SCULPT:  I’m not even sure if this is the clear wings one or not.



*       Leadership is alright

*       He is a must play for a Shield Theme Team

*       No range is bad

*       9 attack with 17 defense is… not surprising for the set.

*       What is special about him?


If you have no range you have to have amazing stats and Sam Wilson does not.  He’s brilliant if he’s in a theme team with Shield.  But for competitive play he is simply pointless.  The Willpower and semi-high defense could keep him dangerous, but he if gets hit once he’ll be useless.

Rurouni KJS Sam Wilson (LE Falcon)
wing speed
53 points
Range: 0 x 1

Powers and analysis:
1st click has Charge, Willpower and Leadership.
2nd & 3rd clicks lose Leadership and swap in Energy Shield/Deflection.
Click 4 loses Charge.
Click 5 regains Willpower, and the last two clicks gain Close Combat Expert.

Compared to the straightforward charging REV Falcons, this "first-click dial" LE is a bit more of a finesse piece better used to boost your shooters. Willpower helps his TA a lot, and he'll make a decent cleanup fighter. Don't forget also that his natural 3 damage makes him useful for breaking walls and objects. Later in his dial he's more of a brawler, but you'll probably prefer to run to get healed instead.

As part of a SHIELD swarm, INSPIRING COMMAND is all you want to use so that your E Snipers can shoot and shoot and shoot with increased damage. Minus the swarm, NANOBOTS is useful to heal up and maybe get back to his first click.

Not sure when 616 Falcon ever joined SHIELD, but the Ultimate version is a member. Team him up with Ult.
Fury, Ult. Black Widow, and Ult. Cap for some Ultimate Nightmare themery. And as stated before, Sam Wilson is golden with a SHIELD swarm and the proper feat.

Comic accurate?
Not sure where the 3 damage comes from. Otherwise OK.

In sum:
Great in SHIELD teams, just OK for others.

Rating: 3/5
