Angela1pg06

 

Angelic bounty hunter Angela was co-created by writer Neil Gaiman and artist Todd McFarlane in 1993 for issue 9 of the ongoing Spawn comic series. Originally conceived as an antagonist to Spawn, they later went on to become sometime partners and occasional love interest. Though immortal and possessed of super strength and flight abilities, Angela was ultimately killed by Spawn’s Demonic adversary the Malebolgia. 

Though Angela was co-created by Gaiman and Spawn creator McFarlane, she was subject to a legal battle over the rights of the character. Neil Gaiman ultimately won the rights to Angela and took her over to Marvel Comics where her history was re-written to fit into the new universe.
