"Oh, poor little Hellspawn. You have been Hunted...Now you'll never be a captain in the Army of the Malebolgia." - Angela
Angela is an angel and a hunter of Hellspawn. She is first introduced in Spawn issue #9 and is the first Angel to be introduced in the series. A beautiful woman, fit with long red locks and a perfect figure, she is a recurring character in the Spawn Universe. Albeit cocky, she is very, very good at what she does.
12th Century ADEdit
In her first appearance, her story introduces Spawn issue #9 as she is shown in a time 800 years past where she has disguising herself as a distressed maiden. When the knightly Hellspawn passes by on his steed he offers help. Angela explains that she has been in an encounter with an ogre and the creature took her sister back to its cave under the waterfall. With eagerness the Hellspawn gallops across the glen to the supposed cave. Angela insists on following him inside as she is ‘familiar with the cavern’. When they are deep in its crevices, she transforms and initiates combat with the knight in a formidable battle. In the end, with the help of her Lance, she is able to kill the Hellspawn and collect her trophy.
Her first appearance in the present is seen just after her medieval tale is told in Spawn issue #9. She is seen, still as beautiful as 800 years past, strolling the streets of New York City. She and Gabrielle meet for the first time after a long time apart and exchange a few rusty words. It is learned here that Angela is a Freelancer and after receiving a Hunting Permit and permission from Gabrielle, she begins her hunt for Spawn. When she encounters him in the alleyway, she makes short work of him, but before her last strike can land something very strange happens and she is shot off into the sky. Spawn is left with only questions.
