'The Falcon and The Winter Soldier' was off to a breezy start and in typical Marvel fashion, the series introduced new characters who could go on to play integral roles in the future.

For those unaware, Joaquin Torres is the Falcon of Earth- 616, according to the comics. He was first introduced in 'Captain America: Sam Wilson #1' in 2015.
