Falcon gets a lot of screen time, as he meets Spider-Man for the first time.
Falcon is trying to prove he’s up to the job of Captain America’s sidekick by taking down a vigilante. It’s a little odd that an antiestablishment hero like Falcon is so quick to believe The Daily Bugle.
#137 is Gene Colan’s last issue, and #138 begins John Romita, Sr.’s run on Captain America. Colan’s art is undeniably good, but I don’t feel like he ever gave his best to Cap. Actually, it’s probably because he’s better suited to shadowy characters like Daredevil. Conversely, Romita’s clean-cut style is perfect for Cap.
