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?

    I don’t know who that is but her new design is toned down which us great. I always felt that spawn characters looked too extreme.

    I do like the design better now. It was a little to much before, but then again it was comics in the 90s right. She is a good character, she’s an angle but angles aren’t pure as you would think. I wonder if there will be any nod to Spawn in her appearance?

      Yes, I don’t mean to sound obtuse, but her appearance was a bit acute before. :p I wonder why Marvel fought so hard for a character so few people remember.

    it’s toned down and more inline with today’s hero fashion but with her eye make-up and spear missing she looks more like a homage to the original. Are those elements still owned by Image? if not give them back to the girl. It’s like Kiss without make, just not complete…

    Interesting that her….scarf, I guess…has so many Xs on it. Guess we know what books she’ll be hanging out in

      Oh wait, that’s a carry over from the original, never mind
