As one of the X-Men, Warren’s biography is so long and convoluted that it could fill multiple pages. Suffice to say that he is a mutant whose body is specially suited to flight – he has hollow bones, large wings, and enhanced vision. Later, it was learned that his blood could be used to heal others.

Warren has been a part of multiple groups over the years – he was a founding member of the X-Men, formed The Champions of Los Angeles, joined The New Defenders, founded X-Factor, was forced into joining Apocalypse’s Four Horseman, etc. Despite periodic claims that he works best solo, Warren can’t say no to joining a team.

For awhile, Warren was known as Archangel and he had metal wings, but this writeup features the ‘classic’ Angel. I’ve always been drawn to him because on the surface he seems relatively weak compared to other heroes – what’s he do? He flies. Who doesn’t? But I like playing characters like this because it forces you to be creative with your abilities.
