Falcon and The Winter Soldier — who are the Flag Smashers and Karli Morgenthau?

The Falcon and the Winter Soldier has introduced several antagonists — including a smarmy new Captain America, racism and a woeful Avengers salary system. But the big bad looks to be the Flag Smashers, led by a young woman named Karli Morgenthau. This villainous group’s name will be familiar to readers of the comic books, but the Flag Smashers in Falcon and the Winter Soldier are otherwise quite different from the comic character.

So, who are the Flag Smashers? In the show, Sam Wilson aka Falcon (Anthony Mackie) first learned about them from his Air Force pal, Lt. Joaquin Torres (Danny Ramirez). As Torres explains, the Flag Smashers think the world was better during the Blip. “They want a world that’s unified without borders,” he says. In episode 2, we find out that formerly-Blipped refugee communities consider the Flag Smashers to be their Robin Hood.
