~ Archangel's final words, as he refuses to give the orb to Psylocke

Archangel, real name Warren Kenneth Worthington III, is the main antagonist of the 2020 Marvel based fanfilm / presentation X-Men: Psylocke. He is a ruthless crime lord and the vice mayor of Mutant Town who secretly plots to assasinate both Nick Fury and Mayor Gambit, so he could steal from them the orb of Thanos and sell it to Carnage at the cost of 1 hundered million dollars.

He is portrayed by the famous young actor Mark Salling in his first villainous role.

History

He is presented as a cruel, bloodthirsty and notorious crime lord who tortures people to get what he wants and uses the Mutant Town citizens as his pawns. He at first discusses matters with his enforcer Riptide and insists that they steal the orb of Thanos from Nick Fury, S.H.I.E.L.D and Mayor Gambit whom protect it at all costs. Riptide however warns him that it shall be hard to steal that orb. He claims to Riptide that he intends to steal the orb for the good of the city's future and make it richer than ever, and that he plots to also make the citizens of Mutant Town rebel against Fury. He then goes with Riptide to visit Mayor Gambit. However, as he offers Gambit a fair amount of money for his own city, in return for the orb, Mayor Gambit cuts off the deal and tells Archangel that he is corrupt for researching it and forcing the scientists which he bribed to show that it is safe to use the orb. He was also secretly plotting to sell it to Carnage, as Nick Fury already knew. As a result of Gambit's refusal, Archangel ordered Riptide to kill them both. Fury escaped. However, the mayor was taken by Riptide and Archangel to their torture chamber. Riptide then cut off his face, behind the scenes. Archangel later recieved reports from his assistant and slave girl Rogue, whom did not find the orb of Thanos within any S.H.I.E.L.D base or other location. Archangel gave her a last chance to lead her troops and find the orb at all costs. However, he ordered Riptide to keep a close eye on her and kill her if she decides to betray his trust. After that, Riptide and Rogue lead the troops, but Rogue orders her men to leave her alone, and Riptide also stays behind for a while. Rogue then finally allies with both Psylocke and the long gone Sabertooth / Victor Creed in order to betray Archangel and finish his reign of terror. She also explains to them how Archangel forced her into being his slave after grabing her on the street and ending her life as a homeless mutant woman. Riptide then discovers that Rogue has betrayed him and Archangel, and out of envy and rage, he decides to kill her on the spot. While batteling the three protagonists, he uses his tsunami and water powers to pull Rogue's sword towards him. He succesfully does so. Cops however shoot Riptide as a result for his crimes. Riptide then kills the cops, just before Psylocke grabs his sword and strikes him down with anger. After Riptide is killed, Archangel does not see his enforcer returning, and he realizes that Rogue has betrayed him. He rallies the citizens and speaks to them, thus promising many rewards for whoever brings Psylocke's head to him. As Psylocke and her two allies fight some ruthless mutants in their journey, Archangel travels to the docks of truth and hunts Nick Fury down for the orb. He manages to cut Fury's head off with his mechanical iron wings, but unfortunately for him, Psylocke finds his whereabouts as she extracts the final piece of information from the mutant thug Juggernaut. Archangel is then confronted by Psylocke, Sabertooth and Rogue. He calls the trio idiots for coming, but Psylocke replies that he is the only idiot around the town, because he is scaring everyone and blackmailing the citizens into giving him what he wants all the time. He then claims as an excuse that he is doing it for the good of the city's future and for the citizens to become all richer than ever. However, Psylocke replies that as they know, he is only doing it for his sake of getting rich. An enraged Archangel then uses the orb's powers to shock Rogue, and as she falls down, he grabs her and points at her face a gun. He offers to give the orb to Psylocke only if she chooses to give up on Rogue's life. She chooses the orb out of the two choices. Sabertooth asks her if she is mad for choosing the orb over the life of their friend, but suprisingly, Rogue is actually proud of her decision. Rogue is then shot, and she falls into the water. After that, Archangel cuts the deal and attempts to finish Psylocke's life along with the life of Sabertooth, but in the last moments, Rogue steals enough gun fire to come back as a Phoenix bird. She rises from the ashes inside the water and uses the fire powers to burn Archangel alive. Archangel is then killed, as he presumably either gets burnt alive or falls into the river after being on fire. Despite his sure death, Rogue used all of her powers and she dies as well.

Personality

Warren Worthington is a delusional and ruthless crime lord who enjoys hurting others, even if it's in the level of torture and blood shed. However, despite his flaws, he cares for Rogue and Riptide. Despite his small amount of feelings for the two, he still manipulates them, mostly for his own gain. He only cares about himself as Psylocke has stated.
