In this version Falcon is a new, younger hero and he's excited to be in the Avengers. So it's humor that comes out of his character.

In Earth's Mightiest Heroes, the Wasp enjoys being a hero and is excited about it and most of her lines are like 75% jokes.
These jokes were actually funny though. As you said, they were in character and felt organic and unforced. It wasn't humor for the sake of humor. The Falcon line comes across like the obnoxious USM humor that undercuts the moment just so the writer(s) can show us how hip or funny they are. It feels disingenuous. A kind of meta-humor in kindergarten form.

Only a week until we find out for sure.
