Well, you kept arguing against the Falcon's suit as it's depicted in the comics as "unrealistic," so I proposed a reality based alternative. Now that's not good enough because it's "outmoded" and not flashy enough. This seems like arguing for the sake of it at this point. Marvel has gotten the technical aspects of its characters' powers right in every instance to date, so there is no reason to think that they won't nail Falcon's powers as well.

Iron Man's suit working the way that it does is not actually plausible but it works in the science fiction/science fantasy world of superhero movies and that's enough. The same can be said of Thor -- I mean, really, how could anyone fly by twirling a hammer? -- and the Helicarrier. I fully expect this to be the case for other heroes in future movies.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
