Mutation resulting in natural wings (16 foot wingspan) and body adaptations to flight; hollow bones, low body fat, high muscle density, acute eyesight and ocular adaptations to avoid wind drying and respiratory adaptations to extract oxygen at high altitudes and velocities.
Secondary mutation resulting in an accelerated healing factor which can be shared with other living beings via blood transfer.
Excellent hand-to-hand combatant trained to use his flight abilities in confined areas.
Above average intelligence with strengths in business tactics.
After injuries resulted in his natural wings being amputated, the mutant Apocalypse grafted razor sharp metallic wings to Worthington's back christening him as his fourth horseman Death.
Over time his natural wings grew within the artificial appendages and they were eventually shed, leaving him with his former feathered wings intact.

While attending private boarding school, Warren Worthington's mutant power developed and wings sprouted from his shoulder blades. Discovering he could fly, he came to enjoy the freedom they allowed, however he was careful to keep his newfound abilities secret.
When a fire broke out in his dormitory, Worthington disguised his identity, using his power to save his fellow students. Eyewitnesses claimed they were saved by an angel. Shortly thereafter, he took up life as a costumed crime fighter in New York City under the guise of the Avenging Angel. Eventually he would be contacted by Professor Charles Xavier and accept membership as a founding member of the X-Men as the high flying Angel.
