Ah, Mutant X. Man, that was such a 90s comicbook. One that I enjoyed immensely! Diamond Comics’ catalogue Previews offered figures of four members of the books main team “The Six”(No, I don’t really know why they didn’t offer all six. Seems a little odd, doesn’t it. It’s like only releasing three of the Fantastic Four!). Being a fan of the comic and a fan of action figures, particularly 90s Marvel figures, I of course wound up with a set. Today, I’ll be looking at The Fallen, who was an alternate universe version of Warren Worthington III, aka Archangel.
THE FIGURE ITSELF
The Fallen stands about 5 inches tall, and has 13 points of articulation. He also had his signature wings, which could be snapped onto his back, and were made of a soft translucent green material, with wire running through to allow them to be posed. The wires honestly didn’t offer much poseability, but it’s the thought that counts, I suppose. Fallen also included an X-Logo shaped stand, which is good, because he can’t stand without it due to his top heavy nature.
THE ME HALF OF THE EQUATION
Fallen, along with the other figures from the Mutant X line, was a Christmas gift from my parents. I recall being fairly excited to open him, as he was my favorite character from the series. Yay!
