Angel or Archangel?

I'm digging him being Angel and Archangel when he needs to be more bad-ass.
 
But should he decide and stay as one?

Archangel looks way cooler they should split them and make them rivals :D

I never thought of that, haha that would be kinda cool. =P

I like him being able to switch, he is useful in a fight again. but i think the archangel persona is winning.  
 

 

Plus that looks really cool

I just really hate how his costume changes when he switches.

@jordama: I know, it's like they are making him to be this dark character, instead of an old loving Angel. =) but i like him being able to fight again.

It only looks cool when done by a decent artist & colorist ;) 
 
But I agree that the ability to change between the two is a better take on the character.  If he's going to be one or the other, than they have to resolve the influence Apocalypse has over him...

@xerox-kitty: I think Apocalypse influence is already over, it's just that he got so used to be this dark person he doesn't now how to get back to the millionaire playboy he was once known to be.

my thoughts exactly......its also cool to see the dichotomy between his normal self and the apocalypse fueled death self

I like him as both. Gives him an unique twist. And he has complete control over the Archangel side now as shown when he refused to kill Apocalypse when ordered to by Apocalypse.

Agreed. I wish that artist and Carey would work together. Carey does an amazing job with any character he gets handed. But too bad it was Greg Land.
