A sort of rematch form the first flick.

He receives a more decisive ass-kicking.

Falcon's newer gadgets in Civil War and Infinity War don't make a difference?

I don't see him doing well against her. She's going to disable his equipment and kick his ass.

I dunno. Falcon comes across as hella skilled and agile. I get the feeling that he's at least one weightclass higher in effectiveness than he is in power. Maybe that's not enough to give him the win, but he's a live underdog at least.

Wasp beats him probably every time.

I'd probably give Ant-Man odds against most everyone else except the top rank. Wasp would do just as good if not better.

So yeah Falcon loses.

To be fair, Black Widow had his number in Civil War.

Honestly I think most of the streets would do better than the mid tier guys against the two. This is because all the mid tiers rely on tech which opens them up for exploitation by shrinkers. If Ant-Man decided to get vicious he could have shrunk down And punched her in the ovaries. Now Wasp probably would take BW because she actually has weapons.

....Are you serious?

They had all but 14 seconds of directly fighting each other. She kicked him, got
him in an arm bar that he instantly reversed on her and even had her pinned to
that ground, until she used her wrist taser to knock him away.

How does ANY of that sound like "having his number." Come on AP.

Anyway, as for the fight, Scott was actually a fairly impressive for a guy with not
as much intensive HtH training as the other streets in his 1st movie (his 2nd one,
not so much), so Scott gave Falcon a decent fight all things considered.

Wasp, who seemed to be better than Scott in every way if we go by the 2nd film,
should make this a lot closer, if not outright beat him faster than Scott, who had
to use a lot of hit and run to fight Sam. She has flight, stingers, shrinking, and
is a respectable hth fighter. She has all the advantage here, other than sheer
firepower. But that's not too much of a problem for her.

Most of Scott's problems in the second weren't caused by own lacking skills but because his new suit kept malfunctioning.

They fought twice.  The first was the more one-on-one fight and the second was in the big team mashup.  In the background, you can see Widow kicking the crap out of Scott.  She was apparently predicting where he'd pop up next as well.

If Falcon was prepared for a fight, he should really have Ant-Man's number. Honestly, Wasp flying and being a better fighter bridges that gap a bit. I would they are 50/50, maybe slight edge to Wasp.

Yeah, I'm seeing this the same way.  Now that Falcon has had experience with shrinking people and has better gear, it might compensate for Wasp's flight, stingers, and hth abilities.

I don't think his gear is any better. He's wearing the same suit in Ant-Man as he is in CW.

I say Wasp wins 7/10, at least. She can do everything Scot did but has more offensive capabilities.
