Warren Kenneth Worthington III, originally known as Angel
and later as Archangel, was born in Centerport,
New York, to Kathryn Worthington
and Warren Worthington Jr.
In his adolescence his feathered wings begin to grow from
his shoulder blades.
At first, Warren
feels he is a freak and an outsider, but he soon learns that he can use his
wings to fly and help people. When there is a fire in his dormitory, he borrows
some props from the school's drama department, dresses up as a heavenly angel,
and rescues his friends.
He soon learns that he is in fact a mutant. He dons a mask
and costume, calls himself the Avenging Angel, and becomes a solo adventurer,
before being recruited by Professor Charles Xavier for the X-Men.
A spin-off of Angel’s story could focus on his misadventures
during his schooling years, long before he met ‘the Creator’ or became
Archangel, focusing on the mischief that originally came alongside his powers,
and his struggle to do good as a lone hero.
Warren's status as a wealthy playboy, as well as being an
outspoken individual who chafes at the notion of being told what to do, would
make him to ideal protagonist to his own story. An Iron Man-type persona, with
an x-gene for extra awesomeness.
