Son of a multimillionaire, Warren Worthington became one of Professor X's first students after his mutation manifested and caused wings to sprout from his back. Later, he was transformed by Apocalypse into an Archangel of Death, only recovering once Apocalypse had been defeated. He still carries the mental scars of Apocalypse's brainwashing, as well as the bio-metallic wings that replaced his feathers.

He was one of the many superheroes who joined S.H.I.E.L.D.'s alliance against villains after a mysterious Pulse hit the Earth and left a material called Isotope-8, desired by both heroes and villains.

When Apocalypse later abducted several X-Men and created a new team of Horsemen, it was revealed that Angel was one of several heroes to have previously fallen under his sway.[1]


Techno-Organic Wings: Angel was given techno-organic wings by Apocalypse as part of his conversion to the Horseman Death. They're feathers could be launched as flechettes which all hit like bullets able to pierce steel, due in part to their incredible endurance and composition Archangel could uses them to torpedo himself through most anything blasting through and rending it apart.

  • Flight: The wings enabled him to fly approximately at Mach 1.
  • Wing Blades: His T.O. wings have razor sharp edges running along them, most likely mono-molecular in sharpness, making them very deadly bladed weapons for him to use. It's suggested they can cleave semblances with the toughness of diamond being sharp enough cleave stone, tear through tempered steel slice and can easily cleave grown men clean in two.
  • Wing Shielding: Due to their metallic trans-organic nature, they made decent shields to protect his body by covering up in them. Able to resist an arrow barrage, bullet fire, flash flames, a missile strike, etc.

Peak Human Strength: the Angel possesses greater physical strength than an ordinary human equal to him in body weight and can lift about 500 lbs.

Essence Reading: He have gained the ability to see the true essence of whomever he looks upon.


Expert Combatant: Archangel is a skilled combatant, especially in aerial hand-to-hand combat.
