Growing closer Angel and Beak were then assigned to the “Special Class,” which was taught by the mysterious Chinese mutant known as Xorn. There, both Angel and Beak found a common acceptance and friends.
After a couple of Amorous tryst, Angel revealed to Beak that she is pregnant.
Because of her mutation, Angel's pregnancy came to full term in only 5 days. She then laid a large clutch of insect-like eggs. When they hatched the children look mostly human but with some of Angel's fly characteristics (such as insect-like wings) or Beak's chicken morphology.

Message to the CBM community:
To those who are making requests, check first [here] because I might have done an article on the character already. If I have not please be patient, I will get on it as soon as possible (but consider the fact that I spend hours writing one of these articles). Try to limit your request to characters that already have been adapted to live media, so that the feature will at least be relevant to the site – Comic Book Movie(though I include TV characters). Characters in Manga or Anime’, I am not particularly familiar of, I am not discounting these characters but it will probably take some time before I write a feature on them because I have to read up on these characters. Thank you for reading these articles! If there are errors on the feature article above, blame it on my age, humanity and ignorance. Just be sure to check the comment section for the corrections, any error I made will surely be pointed out and corrected by much bigger geeks (because there will always be a bigger geek out there). -This has been PollMaster inviting you to the geekside. MABUHAY CBM and Godspeed!
