Profile

Born into extreme wealth and privilege, Warren wanted for nothing. His world changed when his mutant powers emerged and he grew his trademark wings. After initally trying to deny and hide his mutation, Warren embraced it. First as the independent Avenging Angel, then as the X-Men's Angel, Warren put his talents to help others. Carefree, arrogant, charming and outspoken, he often tried the patience of some of his more serious X-Men partners.

In 2024, following Jean Grey's death, Warren took an absence from the X-Men, heading overseas to work with mutant philanthropist organizations and recover from his ordeals. Even after Jean's amazing return, he has stayed away, living as a wealthy playboy philanthropist, particularly for causes that promote mutant-Human relations.

Description:

Angel

Six feet tall, clean shaven, blue-eyed, with wavy blond hair that hangs over his ears, Angel is a very handsome 20-something year-old man. He is lightly tanned and has a lean swimmer's build. Smiling and playful, he carries himself with an easy confidence and charm. Warren is immaculately dressed for the occasion, whatever it is. His clothing choices are decidedly upper-class private school, tending more to classic, tailored and high quality than to trendy or bleeding edge fashion. As an X-Man, he wears a blue skin-tight suit with white accents along the torso and chest, with white gloves.

There is no overlooking the wings. Beautiful, massive, white, feathered wings stretch out from Warren's back. They reach easily over 16 feet from tip to tip. He looks like a modern-day angel.

Archangel

Tall, black-haired, with black pupiless eyes, Archangel is a decidedly menacing counterpart to Angel. Though he has the same physique, his bearing and expression are aggressive, even malevolent. Archangel invariable appears in a skin-tight black outfit with deep purple accents across the chest and limbs.

His wings are massive, metallic and deep silver in colour. They are stylized, sleek, razor sharp and techno-organic, Archangel's wings carry none of the beauty of his other persona's.

History

History:

Warren was born to Warren and Kathryn Worthington, of the wealthy and influential Worthingtons. As their only child, he was the heir to their family fortune and was groomed from a young age to inherit control of the multi-billion dollar conglomerate Worthington Industries. His parents doted on him and he wanted for nothing. Warren attended various boarding schools for the super wealthy in New York and was a carefree youngster.

His life changed when his mutant abilities manifested. Initially horrified when he grew wings, Warren did his best to hide the mutation from everyone, especially his parents. But the change in Warren was not to be denied. Thinking it was best for him, Warren's parents did their best to find a 'cure' for his condition, but to no avail. While is parents were trying in vain to help their son, Warren discovered the beauty of wings; he could fly. This began a lifelong fascination and enjoyment of flight, in all its forms. Over time, Warren came to realize he could use his talents to help others. He dressed up in costume and called himself the Avenging Angel.

Before long, the Avenging Angel came to the attention of Professor Xavier. Under the Professor's tutelage Warren trained to become one of the founding X-Men and took the name Angel.

Not long after becoming one of the X-Men, Warren's father was killed by Burtram Worthington in a plot wrestle control of the Worthington family fortune. Before Burtram could be stopped by the X-Men, Burtram was able to poison and kill Warren's mother.

After his parents' deaths, Warren moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts to study at Harvard. During this time he became a public mutant and inherited his family's fortune. Worthington Industries was placed in the stewardship of trusted family advisors until Warren became ready to take on the massive responsibilities of running the conglomerate.

Warren became increasingly involved in pro-mutant, mutant-human relations and mutant welfare causes during his time at Harvard. After graduating, he came back to New York to rejoin his team mates. In a battle against Harpoon, Warren's wings were mutilated and later forcibly amputated when a former classmate, Cameron Hodge, planted false evidence that amputation was necessary and got a court order. Hodge then attempted murder Warren and make it look like a suicide.

Warren was saved from the murder plot, a bomb on his private jet, by the ancient mutant Apocalypse. Apocalypse brainwashed Warren and had Warren serve his as Death, one of the four horsemen. Iceman broke Apocalypse's control over Warren during a battle in New York. Warren could not face his teammates after what he had done as Death and struggling with the killer instincts Apocalypse had implanted in him. He left the team to live with his girlfriend out of the public eye. Unfortunately, Hodge kidnapped and killed her, and Warren attacked Hodge in retaliation.

After a short time away, Warren returned to the X-Men and was dubbed Archangel by Beast. Brooding and troubled by his past and his instincts, Warren remained with the X-Men until Jean's death. This along with everything else proved too much for Warren, and he left the X-Men again and went overseas. He lived a public life as a philanthropist, still championing his chosen causes, and buried his troubles in a playboy lifestyle. Even after Jean was discovered to be alive, he stayed away and had little contact with his former teammates.

Now, a year and a half after Jean's return, Warren has come back to Xavier's and the X-Men hoping to start a new chapter in his life.

Personality

Click to expand.

Personality:

Warren used to be a carefree, extroverted young man, and he plays the facade well. Outwardly charming, glib and witty (at least to his mind), Warren is an incorrigible flirt who loves parties and adventure. He is often arrogant and outspoken, and chafes when expected to be under the authority of anyone else. Having lost his parents and the only girlfriend he ever truly connected with in circumstances he blames himself for, and deeply ashamed of his past as Death, Warren keeps others at a distance. He is, however, deeply passionate about the causes he believes in and uses his considerable resources and talents to further them. He also shown time and again with the X-Men that he willing to risk and sacrifice to protect others.

Warren does not believe in killing except in the most extreme and unavoidable circumstances. The destruction he wrought during his time as Death and the killer instincts of his Archangel persona trouble him deeply and he fights to keep them in check. In many ways, what he does now to further and protect others are not just expressions of his values but penance for his wrongs. He is prone to fits of brooding and temper when these overwhelm him. As a result, he is considerably more introverted than he was, though he plays the part of his old self well in public and private.

Abilities

Click to expand.

Aerial Adaptation:
Warren's entire anatomy is naturally adapted to flying. His bones are hollow, his body processes food more efficiently than a normal human body and does not store any excess fat, and he possesses a greater proportionate muscle mass than normal. As a result, his strength, speed, agility, flexibility, endurance, reflexes, coordination, balance, eyesight and hearing are at their peak. Elements of his anatomy are comparable to those of birds, especially birds of prey. His eyes can withstand high-speed winds which would damage the average human eye. He can breathe at high velocities or altitudes, and he can cope with the reduced temperatures at high altitudes for prolonged periods of time, giving him a greater-than-normal capacity to endure low temperatures in areas such as the Arctic.

Peak Human Strength:
Due to his body's natural mutation, Warren possesses greater physical strength than an ordinary human equal to him in body weight and can lift about 500 lbs.

Regenerative Healing Factor:
Warren's blood has a potent healing factor. It allows him to heal injuries extremely quickly, including regenerating his wings. He is able to heal minor injuries almost immediately, broken bones within days. Transfusions of his blood grant his regenerative abilities to others, though with mixed results. With one person his blood might be able to heal fatal injuries, with another they might not work at all.

Superhuman Durability:
The tissues of Warren's body are somewhat harder and more durable than that of an ordinary human, though he is far from invulnerable. While he can be injured in ways comparable to an ordinary human, his body is structured to withstand the friction caused by flying at high speeds. He can also withstand impact forces that would severely injure or kill an ordinary human with only mild to moderate discomfort.

Superhuman Stamina:
Warren's musculature produces less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. He can physically exert himself at peak capacity for several hours before the build up of fatigue toxins in his blood begins to impair him. His physical stamina while in flight is considerably greater. Warren can fly non-stop under his own power for a maximum of approximately twelve hours. Contrary to some reports, he couldn't make a transatlantic flight solely on his own power. During his one attempt to do so, he hitched a ride on an airplane for part of the way.

Techno-Organic Wings:

Warren has a pair of large techno-organic wings, with a wingspan of about 16 feet. In his normal form, they appear to be his old white feathered wings. These grant him the ability to fly at up to almost 300 km/h up to heights of 10,000 feet. He can reach heights of 29,000 feet for a few minutes.

When he is in his Archangel form, his wings take on a stylized metallic appearance grant him several abilities. In this form Warren can fly at hypersonic speeds. The wings develop razor sharp mono-molecular edges. The wings are formidable weapons, capable of cutting through even tempered steel. Also, the wings harden in this form and are capable of shielding Warren from bullets, missles and even radioactive plasma. Finally, this form allows Warren to discharge feathers as flechettes that are coated in a neurotoxin. This neurotoxin paralyzes victims without poison resistance or immunity for several hours.

Skills

Click to expand.

Als Technician:
During his time training with the X-Men, Warren has received extensive paramedic and field medical training. He is able to triage life threatening injuries and stand in as a combat medic. His skills are equivalent to an advanced life support technician, and include knowing how to start IV's and administer life saving drugs. This is particularly useful since the healing factor in his blood can be imparted on others through transfusion.

Executive:
Warren has been groomed from a young age to inherit Worthington Industries. This grooming continued into his early adult years with an accelerated BComm/MBA program at Harvard. He has honed his skills with a variety of senior roles in foundations and charitable organizations. Warren is a savvy executive and a capable leader.

Expert Combatant:
Warren has received extensive hand-to-hand and weapons training in the Danger Room with Professor X and other X-Men. His training also included developing specific strategies to use and take advantage of his mutant abilities. His particular specialty is aerial hand-to-hand combat. In addition to his training, his time with the X-Men has given him plenty of opportunities to hone his skills and gather experience.

Pilot:

Warren's fascination with flight has led him to seek training and certification with rotary and fixed-wing aircraft, including jet ratings. Also he has had training flying the X-Men's jet.

Resources

Click to expand.

Extensive Ties:
Warren inherited his father's membership in the Hellfire Club. While Warren is an infrequent attender, he has the ability to work through the club to draw on extensive ties across the world. Also, as the Worthington heir and future CEO of Worthington Industries, Warren has a global network of family and personal connections that he can draw on, and sometimes draw on him in return.

Worthington Fortune:
The Worthington family fortune is worth several billion dollars and is now under Warren's control.

Worthington Industries:
Currently, Worthington Industries is being handled by a group of trusted family advisors. These people steward the company, update and continue to prepare Warren and generally manage things until Warren is ready to take over. While he is not currently the controlling executive, by virtue of who he is, Warren has access to various corporate resources across the world.

X-Men:
Warren is one of the founding members of the X-Men and has returned to that team after being away. He has access to X-Men uniforms, equipment and vehicles. More importantly, he has the backing and support of his teammates.

Xavier's School:

Warren is an advisor at Xavier's School. This gives him access to the school's extensive grounds and resources, as well contacts with its faculty and students.

Weaknesses

Click to expand.

Death:
Warren's time as Death in service to Apocalypse has left its mark. Warren battles ruthless, lethal instincts that seek domination and destruction when in his altered form. Even in his normal form, these urges have their pull, goading him toward uncontrolled transformation and disastrous consequences.

Also, Warren does not have full control of his form. He is not able to transform at will; rather, times of great stress and anger can cause him to transform. This can leave him battling his worst instincts at times when he needs that control the most. And he knows that he is always only one slip from another stain on his soul.

Public Persona:
Warren has been a public mutant and outspoken activist for a few years now. His particularly obvious mutation has also meant that he is known to be the X-Men member Angel/Archangel. He is also the face of the Worthington name and is on the board of directors for a number of non-profit organizations that push his causes. Finally, as a prominent public mutant, many young mutants look up to him. This puts his actions under a great deal of scrutiny, and missteps can have very real costs well beyond him. There also limits to what he can have as a personal life. For instance, anything more serious than a passing dalliance draws media attention. So Warren has to be very careful to maintain this public persona, whether he wants to or not; too much depends on it.

Women:

Warren is an absolute sucker for a pretty face, and it has gotten him in trouble any number of times. A terrible flirt to begin with, he can't seem to resist. Beautiful damsels, particularly those in (or feigning) distress, are a danger and have proven to be an easy route to manipulate him.
