WHY HASNT ARCHANGEL GOTTEN HIS OWN SERIES?

I THINK ARCHANGEL CAN HOLD DOWN A SERIES BY HIMSELF. WHAT ARE YOU THOUGHTS

Nah, he lacks the things needed to be a good character.  Cool powers (oohh I'm Angel I can fly....good for you, so can Miss Marvel, Superman, and hundreds of others, although all you can do is fly, everyone else with flight has a secondary power they can use), and a good personality (rich boy with a split personality, you can't really develop from that).
 
I like what they're doing with him in Uncanny X-Force and from the looks of it, it isn't going to end well for Angel. So I highly doubt you'll get an Archangel series cause all signs are pointing to his death.

I'd love for him to have his own series, but Archangel aside, Warren's personality has fizzled to nothing more than being Psylocke obsessed.

Caps button stuck?

I don't really get the whole "Let's give this or that guy his own series". With someone like Archangel, or most other team characters, the thing that makes them good, is seeing them interact with the other teammembers. I love Beast, but i almost garantee i would not buy a solo series with him, because those types of series just tend to not be very good

I agree.

Some people prefer team books while others prefer solo titles. It's really not that complicated and you certainly shouldn't expect everyone to feel the same way. When characters have their own series they can be explored more deeply and grow into even better characters.

I think he lacks the appeal to hold his own series, unless it's a one shot or limited series exploring further his current situation in uncanny x-force.

@IrishX
True, but when you take a member of a team and give them a solo title, you take them away from there team members thus stripping them of those personal relationsships....Theres also the case of which book "Matters". I just hate the thinking behind those kind of solo titles: "This or that X book is popular now, and people seem to really like this character from the book, so lets take him out of the book, and give him his own, removing him of all the elements that made him a great character in the first place, and give him a suporting cast that no one will care about, because they will all be gone ones the title is cannceled 12 issues from now."

@comix christian: I hear ya and understand your pov but unless a character is given a chance we'll never know if they can carry their own series. For the record I do think there are many better choices for a solo series from the X-Men or Marvel.

CAPS LOCK THREAD.

I'm the biggest Angel fan in the world but even I think he works better as a supporting character. And to answer your question - because he's not popular enough.

He seems to be getting his due in the X-Force books if you ask me.

agreed. though a mini dealing with his psyche before the x force book might be pretty cool.

Wolverine seems to be the only X-person who ever gets a solo anything

It wouldn't last long

Would never last, even when Gambit was the most popular thang going, his solo series didn't last that long. 
 
 
And Gambit is way more interesting than Angel. 
 
Plus, I don't think Warren's gonna be around for much longer...

As much as Warren is one of my all-time favourite characters (and I still crush on him when he's blue ;) he's not interesting enough to carry his own solo series.  Writers either make him a frivolent playboy or an emo psychopath.  Both aspects get very boring very quickly.

I think Archangel would sell better on arts amagazine

He should be a cowboy with a British accent in an alternate reality 1800's American West. Man, there are so many possibilities.
