Warren Worthington Files His Wings

by Phillip Thurtle

In this clip from X Men: The Last Stand, Warren Worthington III's father catches him attempting to file off his wing buds. Warren will eventually develop wings and join the X Men as The Angel. Adolescent bodies don't always follow plans as they develop through their own capacities. Many of the capacities are potentials that deeply root our existence in a form of trans-species being, where potentials of other developmental paths are hinted at. Warren's wings are a model of adolescent development, rebellion from the father, and a sign of how easily all bilaterial beings could have had wings through developmental processes.
