"I concentrated on the time when Archangel was still under Apocalypse's influence, and by influence, I mean physical and mental torture, and altering his appearance a little beyond making his skin blue. I always thought that Apocalypse saw himself as a(n) (Egyptian) god, so I decided to redesign Archangel "In [his] image." Since Archangel's original metal wings covered his feathered ones, I made an exoskeleton concept that is similar to the idea of bionic legs, which strengthen Archangel's wings, but designed to look like a bat or dragon's wings are built, reflecting a bit of his demonic side, the opposite of angelic. Since he has no bladed feathers to shoot, I gave him a spear, because they're cool. "As for the ridiculous helmet, I wanted to make an interesting silhouette that looks creepy, war-like and un-ordinary so that when he flies in at night to kill the X-Men, he looks a little more intimidating than somebody wearing a tight, blue hood."
