Fairly new, created in 2008 and recently used again in a couple stories. About as powerful as the Sentry, but not ruined by bad writing yet (to my knowledge). Have a wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Marvel_%28Marvel_Comics%29
you have single-handedly pointed out that if someone goes to play archangel, he could be important to the plot in the long run. I think if we upgraded apoc at all, it would be a near-impossible fight come the "endgame" for act 1 [yes, i have ideas for what comes after apoc, i really want this game to go for a while, and by while i mean years, if possible, ambitious? maybe, but w/e]. for now they are operating under the premise of "rule without consequence, second only to me" He is asserting stronger telepathic influence than before, but these are very strong willed people,
True, true, Archangel would be quite interesting! Though if you really go with the A vs. X point of the timeline, he'd probably be ... Angel, right now? Dead? One of those. X-Men has gotten even more confusing to keep track of of late. Re: Apocalypse, I was mostly asking because Red Hulk and Mandarin could probably already give him a run for his money in top form -- well, mostly Mandarin, if you went with the more reasonable later Red Hulk that doesn't punch out The Watcher.
Though I admittedly haven't seen much of him during his X-Factor days aside from some trade paperbacks, which is probably when he was at the height of his shown power ... mostly going off of what we saw from him in Age of Apocalypse. Which reminds me: did Mr. Sinister make an appearance in the past game? I imagine he's being his usual magnificently treacherous self?
