  1. Haven't discovered wikipedia yet?

    Warren Kenneth Worthington III is a fictional character, a comic book superhero who first appears in the Marvel Comics universe. Originally known as Angel and later Archangel, Worthington is one of the founding members of the X-Men. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby, he first appeared in X-Men (vol. 1) #1 (September 1963).

    A mutant, Angel is gifted with a pair of large feathered wings extending from his back enabling him to fly. He is the heir and CEO of the multi-billion dollar Worthington Industries. This privileged background resulted in Warren being stereotyped as an arrogant and fun-loving playboy during his early years with the X-Men, but the trials and tribulations of personal experience have tempered him with humility and deepened his character over the course of time.

    One of the original X-Men, Angel has had a frequent presence in X-Men-related comic books throughout the years. He appeared occasionally in X-Men animated series and video games. Angel also appeared in the third film of the X-Men franchise, X-Men: The Last Stand; he was portrayed by Ben Foster.

    Publication history

    From his debut in X-Men vol. 1 #1, Angel has frequently appeared throughout most X-Men titles as well as the first series of the Defenders', Champions and the second series of Excalibur.

    In the late 1990s he appeared alongside Psylocke in a limited series called Psylocke & Archangel: Crimson Dawn.

    He is also one of the main stars in the series X-Men: The Hidden Years which is set in the original X-Men's early days.

    In 1996, Marvel also published a one-shot story simply called Archangel, which was written by Peter Milligan.

    [edit] Angel

    Warren Worthington III was born in Centerport, New York to Kathryn Worthington and Warren Worthington Jr. He was attending a private school in his adolescence when white, feathered wings began to grow from his shoulder blades. At first Warren felt he was a freak, but he soon learned that he could use his wings to fly and to help people. When there was a fire in his dormitory, he borrowed some props from the school's drama department, dressed up as a "heavenly" angel and rescued his friends. He soon learned that he in fact was a mutant. He donned a mask and costume and called himself the Avenging Angel and became a solo adventurer.

    He then began attending the Xavier School For Gifted Youngsters, where Professor Charles Xavier trained young mutants to control their powers and use them for good. Taking the code name Angel, Worthington became one of the original members of the superhero team the X-Men. Along with the rest of the original team, he battled Magneto in the team's first mission.[1]

    For a time, he was romantically interested in Jean Grey, but eventually he realized that Jean was in love with Scott Summers and gave up the pursuit.

    While pursuing Sauron in the Savage Land, Angel was attacked by Pteranodons and fell to his death. He was brought back to life by an un-costumed Magneto, who was known as Creator in the Savage Land. Presumed dead, Magneto had been gathering a mutant army.

    Not long after this, Warren took vengeance upon his uncle, Burt Worthington (who went by the name the Dazzler), who had killed Warren's father, Warren Worthington, Jr.[2]

    When the original X-Men were captured by the mutant island Krakoa, Professor X created a new team of X-Men to rescue them. When this new team of X-Men decided to stay, Angel and the rest of the original team, with the exception of Cyclops, left the team. He and Iceman went to Los Angeles, where they founded the Champions with Hercules, the Black Widow, and the original Ghost Rider.[3] Following the apparent death of Jean Grey and Cyclops' subsequent exile from the team, Warren rejoined the X-Men to help pick up the slack.[4] During this time, Angel grew increasingly disturbed by the behavior and actions of Wolverine, and after some time quit the team in protest.

    He was once kidnapped by the Morlock leader Callisto and stripped of most of his clothing. Callisto attempted to humiliate him. He could not remember anything else at the time as he was unconscious. Just then, Storm, Nightcrawler, Colossus, and Sprite arrived to stop Callisto, but they were also captured by the Morlocks and tied to stakes. Storm struck a deal with Callisto: a battle to the death without powers. They would duel with knives, with the winner keeping Angel and having the leadership of the Morlocks. Storm won, but spared Callisto's life. Shortly thereafter, Angel joined the Defenders.
