Spawn's Angela Coming to Marvel Comics

Characters have crossed over from one comic universe to another before, but they usually fight, shake hands, band together to defeat a common enemy and then slip back into their home domain with no real excuse as to how they got their in the first place. Hell, DC and Marvel even mashed their characters together in the mess that was the Amalgam Universe (which gives me chills just thinking about it.) We won't return there. Tis' a silly place. Today, Newsrama has alerted us that a major character in the Spawn-iverse will be stepping onto Marvel Comics soil for the finale of the massive Age of Ultron event..and it seems she'll be moving in for a while!

Todd McFarlane has had his share of ownership battles over characters with the Miracleman debacle undoubtedly being the loudest. It was Neil Gaiman going head to head with Todd over those rights, and it is Neil Gaiman who now takes Angela into a new universe with plans of making her feel right at home amid the chaos of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel Comics reports: June’s AGE OF ULTRON #10 will not only conclude the epic event, but  include a special epilogue written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by the legendary Joe Quesada bringing Gaiman’s original creation Angela into the Marvel Universe. Sporting a new Quesada-designed look, Angela will have an immediate impact that carries over into GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #5 in July, written by Bendis and Gaiman.

For those of us that remember Angela more for her scantily clad action figures than her actual comic appearances, the mystery of the Joe Quesada re-design is more palpable than what the character will actually be doing in the Marvel Comics! Welp, you've got til June to think about it.
