Archangel and Nemesis

Today, we're staring Death in the eyes, as we'll be taking a closer look at Archangel, Apocalypse's Death Horseman, and his new ally-in-arms Nemesis. Archangel will be leading the Death Seed team, who will reign over Raid lanes, and the full team will consist of Dark Beast, Magneto, Psylocke, and Nemesis. Let's dive into the two newest Death Seed characters, starting with the Horseman of Death…


Archangel

Warren Worthington was a teenager when his mutant ability emerged in the form of a pair of large feathered wings, enhanced strength, and a healing factor. He became the hero "Angel," and fought with the X-Men and then X-Force, before a failed mission cost him his wings. The mutant tyrant Apocalypse captured Angel and offered to restore his wings in return for his service, to which Angel agreed. Apocalypse corrupted Angel's mind, augmented his body with a pair of bio-metallic wings, renamed his new acquisition "Archangel," and anointed him the Horseman of Death. Archangel eventually managed to free himself of Apocalypse's corruption, but the dark persona he was given under Apocalypse has caused him to clash with his friends and allies.


Archangel leads his Death Seed team as a Blaster with high Damage and Focus stats. He can not only level enemies with big attacks, but his Passive Ability, "Fallen Angel," brings a litany of mechanics to bend the battle to your will. On enemy Death, he attacks the most injured enemy, reduces the Speed Bar for all enemies, and, in Raids, Barriers himself. So once the Death Seed team gets rolling, the enemy won't be taking many turns. Even though Archangel is a Blaster, he has Support aspects in his kit. On kill, he generates Ability Energy for all Death Seed allies. On ally Crit, he heals himself and all Death Seed allies. As an encore, this Horseman also grants additional Armor and Crit Chance to Death Seed allies.

Nemesis

While serving as the previous Horseman of Famine, Autumn Rolfson had an affair with the mutant tyrant Apocalypse, leading to the birth of her son: William. Autumn feared that Apocalypse would view her son as a threat and kill him, so she went into hiding, raising her son by herself. William was granted immense power when his mutant powers emerged in the form of bio-furnace energies. He could generate radioactive plasma and blast bioplasma at a temperature equal to the core of the sun. But his energy was unstable, resulting in the need for William to be trapped within a suit designed to contain his essence. William and his mother remained in hiding until they were found by Archangel when he ascended as Apocalypse's replacement. Now known as "Nemesis," he agreed to help Archangel cleanse the world, resulting in confrontations with the likes of Magneto and Psylocke.


Nemesis is a Support for the Death Seed team, but he's not your typical Support.


Nemesis shows that the best defense is a good offense. All of his attacks steal enemy Health and distribute it to Death Seed allies, bypassing Heal Block. His Passive Ability, "Armor Breach," grants Death Seed allies additional Damage, along with granting himself Speed Bar and Speed Up when a Death Seed ally drops below 50% Health.
