Biography

World War II

"Who are you supposed to be?"
"I'm... Captain America."
"I beg your pardon?"
Gabe Jones, Captain America, and Falsworth[src]

James Montgomery Falsworth was born in Birmingham, England.[1]

He was a member of His Majesty's 3rd Independent Parachute Brigade of the British Armed Forces. His unit was captured by the Germans in October 1943 and sent to work at the top secret HYDRA weapons facility in the Austrian Alps. There, Falsworth and his cellmates arranged a fatal "accident" for Colonel Lohmer.[2]

He was freed with the rest of the prisoners by Captain America and helped Dum Dum Dugan control a HYDRA Tank in order to cause panic in the enemy lines.

Falsworth and the rest of the freed soldiers slowly marched to the U.S. military base in Italy. Upon arrival, he and the rest of the soldiers all cheered Captain America for saving their lives.[3]

Howling Commando

"Let's get going because they're moving like the devil."
―James Montgomery Falsworth[src]

Later, Falsworth was handpicked to join the Howling Commandos, along with Dugan and Bucky Barnes to be Captain America's personal unit, and helped cleanse HYDRA from Germany. In April 1944, Falsworth and the other Commandos confronted the Red Skull and halted his research into Asgardian Runestones.[4]

He helped to raid the HYDRA Headquarters with the other Commandos; Falsworth made sure that Rogers got his shield before he chased after the Red Skull.

After Captain America's supposed death, he and the other surviving commandos drank together in memory of their supposedly fallen leader.[3] By this time, Falsworth had earned numerous service ribbons, such as the Order of Burma, Africa Star, Defence Medal, and the War Medal.[5]

After The War

Falsworth died after the war, as S.H.I.E.L.D.'s files given to Steve Rogers when he awoke in the 21st century report Falsworth's status as deceased.[6]

Trivia

  • In the comics, Falsworth becomes the masked superhero Union Jack, where he is a veteran of WWI and was an elderly man, with two grown kids, Jacqueline and Brian. After gaining powers, Jacqueline after a blood transfusion from the original Human Torch, combined with an earlier bite from her vampire uncle, which granted her super speed; and Brian from a variant of the Super Soldier Serum, both fought alongside Captain America during World War II.
    • His comics codename, Union Jack, was given to Peggy Carter by Dum Dum Dugan, modified, as Miss Union Jack.[7]
  • While Falsworth's beret is the correct maroon color, the badge has no resemblance to that of any of the Parachute Brigades. Rather it is a fictional badge that appears to resemble that of the Scots Guards albeit with a Union Flag in the center. This is likely a reference to his role in the comic books as the character Union Jack.
    • In the non-canon video game Captain America: Super Soldier, Falsworth is captured and placed in a containment device, with Arnim Zola intending to kill Captain America and drain his blood to re-create the Super Soldier Serum and use it on Falsworth to transform him into a symbol and the perfect assassin. This and the Union Jack flag located beside him are a reference to his comics codename.[8]
