Marvel's forgetting a couple things--first--it's not 1993--and second--nobody gives a shit about Angela if she's not being drawn by Todd McFarlane and she's not hunting Spawns. Remember when Marvel bought Marvelman and everybody went ape-shit for his triumphant return?
Neither do I!
To nobody's surprise--when you take away everything about a character that made them fresh, cool and exciting--they're no longer fresh, cool and exciting!
Maybe they could arrange to have WildC.A.T.S. drop by too. What an absolute thrill THAT would be--to see it drawn by somebody other than Jim Lee and published in a year other than 1992.
But seriously--how does Neil or Marvel come out of this looking good? How do they spin this as a genuinely good and creative idea and not have it look as though they're doing this just to be dicks to Todd?
Yeah, can't really see how angela works in the marvel U. I guess if they were going to do a major relaunch of doctor strange/blade/tomb of dracula they could involve Mephisto but then he becomes the malebolgia. I don't see how angela fits in with the avengers or ultron and is still angela. Makes about as much sense as Vampirella in an avengers book. Why not just create a new character worth a crap?
I guess this will really assure we never see another Todd Mcfarlane/marvel project. Always wanted to see todd do a spidey/venom story.
