Some sites report the Falcon to be reporter Flash Calvert. However, during the Falcon's one and only appearance in Pep Comics #1, the Falcon comes to Flash's rescue when he is tied up by Slug Wickum's gang, fights them in Flash's presence, and then frees Flash and hands him a confiscated gun so Flash can keep them contained until the police arrive. So Flash is the one person the Falcon cannot be. It is possible that the Falcon ditched his costume and became the less flashy looking Press Guardian, in which case he is Perry Chase, playboy son of the Daily Express' publisher.
