UsageEdit

A pair of big white bird wings with loops on them to put the user's arms through.

The wings somehow generate their own lift and create their own wind which allows the user to fly through the air. They're activated as soon as the user puts them on and starts flapping their arms.

Myka and Pete used the Wings to escape from Warehouse 2 after H.G. Wells trapped them in the building. Currently stored in Warehouse 13.

The Wings of Daedalus being used

HistoryEdit

Icarus' father, Daedalus, a talented and remarkable Athenian craftsman, attempted to escape from his exile in the palace of Crete, where he and his son were imprisoned at the hands of King Minos, the king for whom he had built the Labyrinth to imprison the Minotaur (half man, half bull). Daedalus, the superior craftsman, was exiled because he gave Minos' daughter, Ariadne, a clue in order to help Theseus, the enemy of Minos, survive the Labyrinth and defeat the Minotaur.

Daedalus fashioned two pairs of wings out of wax and feathers for himself and his son. Before they took off from the island, Daedalus warned his son not to fly too close to the sun, nor too close to the sea. Overcome by the giddiness that flying induced in him, Icarus soared through the sky curiously, but in the process he came too close to the sun, which melted the wax. Icarus kept flapping his wings but soon realized that he had no feathers left and that he was only flapping his bare arms. And so, Icarus fell into the sea in the area which bears his name, the Icarian Sea near Icaria, an island southwest of Samos.
