The Falcon and the end of the winter season saw the death of Karli Morgenthau, who was holding something until her last breath – this is what it was.
The end of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier saw Sam Wilson officially become Captain America, Sharon Carter’s new identity, and Karli Morgenthau’s death, but what was the leader of the Flag Smashers holding when he died? Now that the Infinity Saga has come to an end, the Marvel Cinematic Universe is finally moving forward with its Phase 4, which in addition to the movies will also cover the TV shows that will air on Disney +. Launching this new phase was WandaVision, and now that it’s over, fans continued to get their fix of Marvel content with The Falcon and the Winter Soldier.
Established approximately six months after the events of Avengers Endgame, where old Steve Rogers passed Captain America’s mantle to Sam Wilson (Anthony Mackie), The Falcon and the Winter Soldier He followed Sam as he decided whether or not to fulfill Rogers’ plans, and Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), who continued to struggle with his past as the Winter Soldier and the consequences of it. Sam and Bucky teamed up to bring down a radical group known as the Flag Smashers, led by Karli Morgenthau (Erin Kellyman), who were causing mayhem around the world. After several encounters that did not end well, one of which caused the death of Lemar Hoskins / Battlestar (Clé Bennett), Karli and the rest were stopped, but that did not go well either.

Towards the end of the first season of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Karli and the Flag Smashers plotted an attack on a Global Repatriation Council (GRC) conference in New York City, joined by Batroc (Georges St-Pierre). Sam, now wearing his new Captain America outfit, courtesy of Wakanda, and Bucky flew to New York to stop the Flag Smashers, with Sharon Carter (Emily VanCamp) and John Walker (Wyatt Russell) arriving to help. However, Sharon had different plans as it was revealed that she was the mysterious Power Broker, and she separated Karli from the rest of her group, who were arrested. After a confrontation between Sharon, Karli and Batroc, the latter was shot and killed by Sharon after he threatened to expose her, and when Sam arrived, Karli pointed his gun at him. Sharon proceeded to shoot Karli, who died in Sam’s arms, and held onto something until her last breath.
The object that Karli was holding when she died was the pendant from her hand, which had a hand (similar to Hamsa or Hand of Fatima) with a sun and the Earth on it. This is most likely what the Flag Smashers logo was based on, as they wore black masks with a red handprint on them where the palm forms the silhouette of the Earth. The Flag Smashers were an anti-nationalist group that believed that the world was much better after Thanos’ snap. Avengers: Infinity WarAs when the problem was reversed five years later and half the life in the universe returned, billions of people around the world were affected and left homeless and homeless. The GRC was formed to help those who had been displaced, but Karli and company believed that they only cared for those who had been detained. The group’s motto was “one world, one people,” and the pendant Karli was wearing is a good representation of that mentality, with the hand holding the Earth representing unification.
Karli stayed true to the Flag Smashers cause until the last second of her life, as seen in the way she held her pendant while dying in Sam’s arms. It will be seen what the impact of Karli’s actions will be on the MCU beyond the events of The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and if Flag Smashers, like HYDRA, have secret allies scattered and hidden in plain sight.
