Archangel is a fictional character and comic book superhero of Marvel Comics.
Warren Kenneth Worthington III is a fictional character, a comic book superhero who appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. 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-creator Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in X-Men (vol. 1) #1 (September 1963) as Angel and later appeared as Archangel in X-Factor (vol. 1) #24 (January 1988). A mutant, Angel originally possesses 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 results in Warren being stereotyped as an arrogant and self-absorbed playboy during his early years with the X-Men.
