X-Men Intro(Anime Version)

The X-Men, a group of superhuman called mutants that was organized and founded by Professor Charles Xavier. His aim why he organized this mutants: First, to train mutants how to control and use of their superhuman powers, and secondly, to serve as combat team that will defend humanity against attacks by other powerful mutants aside from them who use their powers for evil purposes, as well as against other threats. The identities of the X-Men are unknown to the people. In their civilian identities the X-Men are just official students or alumni on Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters. The School, where the X-Men are based is in Charles Xavier's mansion at 1407 Graymalkin Lane, Salem Center, Westchester County, New York. The Mansion serves as the X-Men's base of operations, training center, and quarters. The true identities of two of the X-Men's founding members, the Angel and the Beast, become public known, they have apparently managed somehow to conceal the fact that they attended Xavier's school from public awareness. Each member of the X-Men is a superhuman mutant. There have been exceptions, such as the Mimic, who could duplicate the superhuman powers of mutants, and Longshot, artificially created, genetically engineered humanoid from another dimensional world...

Warren Worthington III was attending a private school in his adolescence when wings began to grow from his shoulder blade. The wings reached their full adult size within months, but Worthington kept them a secret by strapping them tightly to his back and concealing them under his clothes. At first he thought himself a freak. However, Worthington learned that he could use his wing to fly, and came to enjoy his new ability. Then, one night there was a fire in his dormitory, and he resolved to use his flying power to rescue the people inside. To conceal his identity, Worthington wore a long blond wig and a long nightshirt, so that he looked like an angel. The rescue was successful, and his identity remained a secret. Shortly thereafter Worthington became a costumed crime fighter in New York City under the name of the Avenging Angel. He was then contacted by the X-Men and agreed to join them.

Shortly after Professor Charles Xavier, the founder of the X-Men, recruited several new members for the group, the Angel decided to leave the X-Men. After his parents' deaths, Worthington inherited their vast fortune, and he used part of it to found a Los Angeles-based organization of super-human adventures the Champions. Worthington also publicly revealed that he was the Angel, although he and Xavier managed to keep secret Worthington's connection with Xavier's school, the cover and home base for the X-Men. When the Champions failed as an organization, Worthington decided to devote his time from then on to his business duties and to his renewed romance with longtime girlfriend Candace "Candy" Southern. Worthington also briefly returned to the X-Men.

His newfound relationship with his fellow X-Man, Psylocke, has been the anchor he needs while dealing with his current changes. It's no surprise that Warren is also providing the same comfort to Betsy as she deals with her own "evolution" as a result of her exposure to the life-saving Crimson Dawn.

Height: 6 Ft.
Weight: 150 lbs
Eyes: Blue
Hair: Blond

Strength Level: The Angel possesses the normal human strength of a man of his age, height and build, who exercises in intensive regular exercise. His wings can create enough lift to enable him to carry aloft at least 200 pounds in addition to his own weight.

Known Superhuman Powers: Angel is a mutant who can fly by means of his natural. Fully feathered like a bird's, the wings have a very flexible skeletal structure, enabling him to press them to the back of his torso and legs with only the slightest bulge visible under his clothing. His wings have superhuman strength and can create enough lift to enable him to carry aloft at least 500 pounds in addition to his own weight. Angel's entire anatomy is naturally adapted to flying. His bones are hollow like a bird's, making him weigh far less than usual for a man of his build. His body is virtually devoid of fat and possesses greater proportionate muscle mass than an ordinary human does.

His eyes are specially adapted to withstand high-speed winds which would hurt the average human eye. He possesses a special membrane in his respiratory system enabling him to extract oxygen from the air at high velocities or altitudes. Angel flies by flapping his wings, as a bird does. Though he generally flies below the height of clouds (6,500 feet), Angel can reach a height of 10,000 feet with little effort. With severe strain he can reach the highest recorded altitude of a bird in flight (African geese at 29,000 feet above sea level), but he can only remain that high for several minutes. He can fly nonstop under his own power for a maximum of approximately twelve hours. Contrary to some reports, he could not make a transatlantic flight solely under his own power. However, since his genetic alteration by Apocalypse, Angel may be able to fly for longer periods non-stop than he could previously.
