The past history of Archangel of Earth-21993 mirrors that of his Earth-616 counterpart up until the point prior to the members of X-Factor aiding the X-Men in stopping the Shadow King's invasion of Muir Island. In this reality, Archangel and the rest of X-Factor would be called along with the X-Men and New Mutants to answer to Charles Xavier's criticisms of their efforts to improve human/mutant relations while he was in space. The meeting would devolve into a full out battle between the New Mutants and the other X-teams when Xavier would demand that Cable be detained for his extreme and countering opinions to Xavier's dream. Archangel would join the battle against the New Mutants but the Mutants would escape. Eventually, Cable would assassinate Xavier along with Cyclops and Marvel Girl.

Archangel being killed by a Sentinel

Their deaths would divide the X-Men in half, and Archangel would join with Wolverine's faction, who were bent on getting vengeance on Cable. They would ultimately track down Cable and the New Mutants to their base. While Archangel and the other X-Men would be busy battling the New Mutants, Wolverine would slay Cable.[1]

Wolverine would lead his X-Men on other missions to eliminate other X-Men foes, and Archangel would assist in eliminated Mr. Sinister and his Nasty Boys. Later when the US government would deploy the Sentinels in response to Magneto taking over Washington D.C., Wolverine's team would fend themselves against a team of the mutant-hunting robots. During the battle, Archangel would be killed after taking a direct laser blast to the chest.[2]
