How strong is Archangel?

I know he has superhuman strength and durability, but I've never been quite sure what levels they're on.

His wings are superstrong but he can only lift about half a ton (imperial), near peak human strength I think

He can lift 300 lbs. normally and his wings obviously add to that total, (an additional 200 lbs). Technically that is considered superhuman because anyone who can lift twice their own body weight gets that distinction.
 
   Now supposedly he is stronger when in his Archangel form but I don't think anybody knows exactly by how much.

he has exceptional superhuman eyesight, capable of transforming into his archangel death personal, has a healing factor. his blood is capable of healing others.

Reportedly, adamantium can cut through anything less dense than carbonadium. The exact metal that composes Archangel's wings has never been revealed, but I would think that if it were carbonadium, it would have been well worth mentioning. So we can assume they are composed of a lesser metal, and so can be cut by adamantium blades. 
Archangel has the ability to fire his razor-sharp wings as projectiles. These can be either normal projectiles, or then can be tipped with a toxin that attacks the nervous system of living organisms.

does'nt he also project explosive missile type fethers from his wings? I used to have an archangel card that said he projects missile. But then agin that was way back when this guy first hit the scene as Archangel. Alot of times things get rewritten or woven into the story plot.

varies. he seems to getting written differantly all the time. he's had quite a few upgrades/mutations and is
supposed to be pretty powerful right now. as a Horseman natural is supposed to be. but i dunno, because his 
showings are so varied and he's rarely shown accomplishing a feat of strength. best most recent i can think of was
he flew straight through a big Godzilla wannabe, which would take alot of force. he's pretty damned fast though, ive seen 
that a few times. sorry i cant come up with anything strength wise.

I assume about a ton.  Also, he can go Mach 1!
