Now that the lawsuit is settled, many things can be done with the characters from the Spawn universe. Marvel got their hands on Neil Gaiman’s Angela, and Joe Quesada has a whole new look for her in the upcoming Age of Ultron #10.
“Angela is going to make her mark rather quickly. She’s going to hit the ground running and cut a large swath through the Marvel Universe – both literally and metaphorically,” explained Joe Quesada, Chief Creative Officer, Marvel Entertainment. “ We have huge plans for her, and the mystery of who she is and where she comes from is something I think Marvel fans are going to be blown away by. Actually, I know they will!”
Though Angela’s first appearaince will be in Age of Ultron #10 arriving in June, the character will quickly join Guardians of the Galaxy #5 in July fighting alongside Star-Lord, Iron Man, Rocket Raccoon, and of course Groot.
For those that don’t remember Angela, here is how she looked back in the day.
And here is Joe Quesada’s redesign.
As nice as the update looks, I can’t help but flashback to a certain cosplay photo I found on the Intardwebz.
So what do you think of the new Angela, and do you think this is a good idea by Marvel to bring the character into its universe?
