He joined Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and became a founding member of the X-Men. Later, he was transformed by Apocalypse into the Horseman of Death, Archangel. To this day he carries the mental scars of Apocalypse's brainwashing, as well as the bio-metallic wings that replaced his feathers. Newly gifted with rejuvenating abilities, the Angel seeks to help his allies and all those unable to protect themselves.
