Angel's Aerie is a ski cabin style mansion owned by the X-Man Warren Worthington (Aka Angel/Archangel), and is located in an undisclosed location somewhere in the Colorado Rocky Mountains.[1]

Angel's Aerie was first seen when Bobby Drake took his girlfriend, Terri Sue Bottoms, there, to enjoy the pool with Warren and his girlfriend, Candy Southern. The group was attacked, by Master Mold, and Bobby was captured, with Warren following after. Later, the X-Men visited Warren and Candy and this visit, immediately, preceded the the X-Men's first encounter with the Inner Circle of the Hellfire Club.[2]

Angel's Aerie was referred to as The Defenders Mansion when it served as "New" Defenders headquarters, when Beast tried to reorganize the Defenders team.[3]

More recently, Cyclops, wanting to become proactive and remain in secret, commandeered the mansion for X-Force, as their new de facto headquarters. From this secluded location Cyclops was able to secretly supervise this strike team's covert operations (including the systematic assassination of members of the Human Council) away from the main body of the X-Men, without Warren's knowledge.[1] [4] After finding-out about X-Force's meetings in the mansion, Warren began to object, until he was attacked, by a hypnotized Wolfsbane, and was transformed in Archangel again.

All of the members of X-Force have lived at Angel's Aerie, if only briefly. Like most X-Men headquarters, Angel's Aerie has sustained large amounts of damage.[5] [6]
