Spawn‘s Angela to Enter the Marvel Universe

Hsin Ho

The half-naked angel warrior best known for (a) an action figure with unpainted undies and (b) a lawsuit between Neil Gaiman and Todd McFarlane is changing her Image in a way we can Marvel at – she’ll be making a cameo in Age of Ultron, then appearing in a Gaiman-penned issue of Guardians of the Galaxy.

Does it matter, though? I mean, the overtly sexual nature of the character and the fact that she banged Spawn was pretty much the primary appeal (and in my teens, it was a biggie – she’s horny enough to do a zombified dude just to keep warm), but can Gaiman make her interesting again in a less R-rated universe than Todd McFarlane’s?
