I'm not a long time Avengers fan so am wondering why a character like the Falcon who is a human who can fly and communicate with birds (I think) is still around. Surely he's had a long stint as being another of Captain America's side-kick buddies, but does anyone else find him utterly useless? Sorry if I'm harshing any Falcon fan's mellow. Just very confused as to why he's around when the Avengers have a slew of characters who are skilled humans with far more appeal (etc. Hawkeye, Mockingbird, Black Widow, Shang-Chi).
