    Falcon #5 is a defining issue for what it means to be a hero in a post-HYDRA Cap world. Sam needed a wake-up call, and he sure as hell got one. Overall this chapter had excellent character development, a strong focus on the relevance of this cast of characters, and the wide appeal of a story with substance. This creative team never lost focus of what was engaging to the action. Read Full Review

    The strength of these last two issues and a slight obsession with vampires are enough to keep me on board going into the next arc. Now if we can get some Blade characters thrown in the mix it should be a fun ride. Read Full Review

    Falcon #5 doesnt bring the cleanest or most unexpected ending to Take Flight, but it does give a satisfying and fairly heart-warming conclusion. You know what this title will be about, and you know the cast to expect. The art is excellent to boot, and this one does get a recommendation. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Falcon #5 stumbles across the finish line as a disappointment that doesn't provide many reasons to keep reading. Read Full Review

    I enjoyed this arc and found the ending to be a solid end note for Falcon and a very interesting supporting cast. The pace remained solid but some of the corney moments still remain in the book. The art continues to suit this story well and I found it interesting that the next arc in this story will continue falcon fighting some bump in the night kind of characters. We will see if blade makes an appearance because so far Falcon is fighting all the things blade would be up against. You get a fast paced superhero story and I look forward to vampires and Misty In the next issue.

    Pick it up

    This was a great ending to this arc. I was skeptical about starting Falcon but, it has become one of my favorite books on the stands.

    Falcon brings his Chicago/Hell story to a fitting end. Some interesting scene structure choices liven up a script that's a bit short of issue-sized; things still end up a trifle too wordy. I do like spreading the focus and the heroics around ensemble-style; Sam did plenty of soul-searching in the previous issues and sharing the big win feels reasonable. The art sticks at a high level and helps pave over the weak spots, leaving me with a satisfying read.

    End of a arc who isn't link at all to Damnation. Sadly. Well not true with mephisto keeping a grudge against Sam.
    The end is a little to easy & manichean. I also have a issue with Patriot. I prefer the other Falcon or Dr Voodoo.
    I love to see Hellstorm even if he seem less powerfull than in Spirit of Vengeance.

    Cover - A nice cover with a link to the story 1.5/2
    Writing - I find this part a little disappointing. 1.5/3
    Arts - All the panel are still good. 2/3
    Feeling - I don't like this arc, but that not surprising with Mephisto & Blackheart involved.
    The fact the story is dark is logical with this two involved. But It's not what I looked for.
    Blackheart for me his a character too much powerfull more
