Angel – Warren Worthington III
Most casual fans don’t know a lot about Warren. He does have a connection with Apocalypse as one of his Horsemen. In Fox’s Apocalypse, we saw the darker side of Angel, but we never got his true origin. In X-Men: Land Stand, we got a glimpse of his origin story, but there wasn’t enough room to dive into his backstory. A 45-60 minute episode is exactly what Warren Worthington III needs.
Of all the X-Men, Warren has more of a traditional superhero origin. He has some Ironman to him in terms of his brashness after he discovered he could fly with his wings. It took a dorm room fire to discover the mutation he hid was a gift. After saving his dorm mates, he found his new calling as a hero. He became the Avenging Angel.
When out on heroic duties, Angel runs into Cyclops and Iceman, who are out on a mission. He mistakes them for criminals since they were carrying vials that belonged to… criminals — this writes itself.
The team should battle Angel until Professor X intervenes. He of course will convince Angel to join the team of Cyclops and Iceman. In the comics, there was a bit of a one-sided love triangle where Angel crushed on Jean, who liked Cyclops, which could make for some good fun.
