I agree I would like to see Archangel eventually, This was when Warren really got interesting, though I like the normal one too.
But what I like about the Archangel thing is not the fact that he truns blue or has metal wings but that, (like storm when she lost her powers) really becomes depressed.

 about me
Archangel (formerly known as Angel; real name: Warren Worthington III) happened to be (and still is) my favorite marvel character (first to Iceman and Gideon).
He becomes a superhero again but finds himself unable to regain is previous form as Angel.
His character changes from good to evil to good again; but remnants of the past (especially the evil ones) remain to haunt him.

 Don Markstein's Toonopedia: The Angel
X-Men, like The Avengers (the other superhero group that debuted with a September, 1963 cover date) was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the writer and artist, respectively, who were mostly responsible for Marvel's 1960s rebirth.
The Angel, one of five team members created for this title, was named after a fairly prominent character Marvel had published in the '40s, but bore no other resemblance to anything the company had done before.
More recently, he's undergone the usual indignities that befall a superhero who doesn't appear regularly in a series and therefore can be tossed around by writers without worrying about messing with a commercially valuable property.

 Religion of Comic Book Characters (esp. Super-Heroes)
In addition to superheroes who are devout lay members of their religious faith (see above), there is another class of superhero: those that are actually active clergy or religious leaders.
A number of major superheroes are former clergy, former religious leaders or (in the case of former Catholic seminarian Frank Castle, the Punisher) former clergy-in-training.
These are writers who take their stories beyond stereotypical superheroic fisticuffs and explore fascinating, more complex themes and deeper aspects of their characters.

 Gods and Champions - HERO GAMES Discussion Boards
Maybe there would be an organization like the Church of the Archangel Michael or other mutant hate groups, but religously inspired and dedicated to putting down/debunking the false gods.
I would say the main reason that the writers are cautious about bringing in the Judeao-Christian religion is that they are afraid of being percieved as disrespectful, or as trivialising God.
In general the idea of a superhero who believes their powers come from God would be far too scary for Marvel/DC to handle.

Comment from bobbybiv - 7/26/06 1:20 AM Daredevil was DEIFINITELY one of the better superhero flicks, taking a character I have NEVER cared for, and fleshed him out to the point where I appreciated the entire movie, from beginning to end, but then again, I have the director's cut.
Comment from ddjkeys3 - 6/27/06 12:38 PM I would like to add another, under rated superhero flick, "The Shadow", I know it was based on an old radio show, but I thought they did a good job taking something that was just voices, and making a movie out of it.

 Triple A: Wonderland
Isn't it fair to say that, with regard to superhero comics, anyway, the sense of wonder is actually a sense of aspiration or even jealousy.
There's a shot of them fighting, a wrestling style shot, and you could see them straining, and Green Lantern makes a comment, "He's wrestling an archangel and he's wondering if he can live up to the myth?" But there's no sense of wonder on that page.
Whatever 'it' is. And in a comic of scale, i.e.; a superhero comic, it's got to be a sense of wonder, a moment of scale or awe.

Uplifting her was not necessarily the soundest of moves, on some levels (though she does have some subtle applications of power that are amusing).
This is a neat idea, both in the general sense(Seneschal of really powerful Tether becomes Archangel of that Tether) and the specific case mentioned here (Archangel of the Sun).
An Archangel of the Sun could well play an interesting role in a campaign: * support Divine Fire in connotations of warmth and energy (which of course that Seneschal would do, being doubtless an exceedingly powerful Servitor of Gabriel).
