Seraph / Warren Worthington III (Earth-9009)
Warren Kenneth Worthington III, originally known as Angel and later as Archangel, and finally as Seraph is one of the five founding X-Men who Professor X assembled to overcome the threat of evil mutants and fight for the dream of peaceful coexistence and equality between humans and mutants.
Angel is a member of a subspecies of humans known as mutants, also colloquially known as Homo superior who are born with superhuman abilities derivatives of the "Gene X" also known as "X-Factor" or "Gene Mutant". Warren Worthington III originally possesses a pair of large feathered wings extending from his back, enabling him to fly. He is the heir of the Worthington family fortune, and this privileged background results in Warren being stereotyped as self-absorbed and unable to deal with hardships during his early years with the X-Men. This personality was ultimately replaced with a more introspective and brooding personality in the late 1980s, when the Warren Worthington III was changed into the darker "Archangel" persona. While Angel's wings were originally feathered, his transition to Archangel resulted in metallic wings and newfound powers. Recently as a result of a new set of secondary mutations Warren Worthington III gained new mutant powers as the ability to cast wings of psychic light upon his back that gave him a whole new range of all-new mutant powers.Realizing that he had evolved enormously in both power and responsibility Warren Worthington III took on the new superheroic identity of Seraph (one of the Supreme Angels surrounding God's throne according to the Kabbalah of Angels).He once again gained the joy of life he once had mixed with a personality who is a figure of responsibility and leadership worthy of respect among the X-Men of his Multiverse reality.
