Michael (Hebrew: מִיכָאֵל‎, Micha'el or Mîkhā'ēl; Greek: Μιχαήλ, Mikhaḗl; Latin: Michael or Míchaël; Arabic: میخائیل‎, Mikā'īl) is an archangel in Jewish, Christian and Islamic tradition. He is viewed as the field commander of the Army of God. He is mentioned by name in the Book of Daniel, the Book of Jude and the Book of Revelation. In the book of Daniel, Michael appears as "one of the chief princes" who in Daniel's vision comes to the angel Gabriel's aid in his contest with the angel of Persia (Dobiel), and is also described there as the advocate of Israel and "great prince who stands up for the children of your [Daniel's] people".

The Talmudic tradition rendered Michael's name as meaning "Who is like El?" ("Who is like God?"), As a question, it is understood as being rhetorical, implying the answer, "No one is like God."

Much of the late Midrashic detail about Michael was transmitted to Christianity through the Book of Enoch, whence it was taken up and further elaborated. In late medieval Christianity, Michael, together with Saint George, became the patron saint of chivalry, and of the first chivalric order of France, the Order of Saint Michael of 1469. In the British honours system, a chivalric order founded in 1818 is also named for these two saints, the Order of St Michael and St George. St Michael is also considered in many Christian circles as the patron saint of the warrior. Police officers and soldiers, particularly paratroopers and fighter pilots, regard him as their patron. He is also a patron of Germany and of the City of Brussels.

Roman Catholics refer to him as Saint Michael the Archangel and also simply as Saint Michael. Orthodox Christians refer to him as the Taxiarch Archangel Michael or simply Archangel Michael. The New Thought Movement refers to Michael as Christ Michael.

I just call him the "Dragon Slayer." ;-)

The warrior class of the angelic host are designed to terrorize the Kingdom of Darkness. I believe they use weapons, armor and technology never seen before on this earth. They love their job. =D

Sanguinius, is that you? Q.Q
Dragondash98's avatar
Sanguinius WISHES he was this bad ass.
PokeyFluffytail's avatar
If you think that, you truly don't know 40k then. xD

Michael didn't die killing his backstabbing brother unlike Sanguinius.
PokeyFluffytail's avatar
Unlike Michael, Sanguinius is more akin to Jesus, what with the whole dying for humanity thing.
Which by default, makes Sanguinius better than Michael, because Papa Sang is basically Space Jesus then.
And that's just the comparison alone, nevermind the fact he's a primarch and is a 40k character.
Dragondash98's avatar
Well then how come Sanguinius hasn't returned then if he's supposed to be Space Jesus? It took Jesus only three days. The hell's Sang doing that's taking so long?

Or in more flavorful terms.  Michael who in the Great War in Heaven was the one who personally showed Lucifer the door.
