Warren Worthington III is a mutant who had a pair of white fledged wings, which come out his upper back. As a boy, he went into his bathroom and attempted to cut off his wings to hide the mutation from his father, Worthington II, but the elder Warren found him in the bathroom and was greatly moved.

As a young man in his early twenties, his rich industrialist father was motivated by his son's mutation to create a "cure" for mutants. Warren was intended to be the first recipient, but started to have second thoughts. He eventually broke free of the restraints and fled before he could be stripped of his powers by jumping out the window and flying away, realizing he was only hiding from his father.

Warren went to the X-Men in order to enroll at the school, only to find it closed down mere seconds ago. His presence, however, inspired Storm to reopen the school. When Alcatraz Island fell under attack of the Brotherhood of Mutants, Warren's father was captured by Psylocke, Arclight and Quill. They threw him off the roof, but Warren arrived in time to save him.

Warren joined the X-Men and was a active mutant protester. He was seen flying over a park the same time Magneto regained his powers.[2]

In the year 2011, Warren was killed while protesting against the cure for mutants in front of the former X-Mansion.[3]


He had a pair of big white fledged wings, which come out his upper back. With them, he can fly at various speeds with good control.
