    I'd be interested in seeing if people still call it stupid if that's the case. It makes perfect sense to call her Ms. Marvel if that's the case. I guess people would just move onto the fact they're basically making her an old Marvel character and call that stupid.

    WTF? Where the heck are you getting that Angela may be Jean Grey? That idea is 100 times worse than her taking on the codename Ms. Marvel. That would be a really stupid idea if Marvel went that route

    No it wasn't stupid before; it was unnecessary. Your theory makes it stupid

    Agreement...? Who cares if there's an agreement or not...? Marvel is gonna do whatever the hell they want no matter what anyone on this board says.

    The mystical side of Marvel has been a graveyard for years now. Folks like Ghost Rider and Dr Strange have not seen any successful books in forever. The hype behind Angela's Marvel debut could have been very helpful there. But, no. Where did they put her...? Guardians of the Galaxy.

    Now, it's been a while since I read Spawn but from what I recall, Angela isn't really a sci-fi type of character. She was dropped in GotG because of 2 reasons:

    1) It's the company man Bendis' book

    2) There's more attention being paid to the book due to the upcoming movie and what it can do for the Marvel Movie-verse post Phase 1. All of the Hollywood side of Marvel wants her there to help build momentum towards the film adaption.



    I haven't read any of GotG but if any of that is true, it makes me glad I didn't. Battle of the Atom already makes my head hurt. I'm dropping the X-Men because the convoluted mess actually GOT worse and I didn't think that was possible.

    Looks like I'll be saving money this winter. :up:

    I'm pretty sure Bendis said Angela was not Jean Grey, that rumor came up on tumblr and he shot it down.

    *Puts on old man glasses*
    Back when the X-men was good....Jean Grey had a friend named Annie Richards who was killed in a hit and run. Jean's powers manifested and allowed her to telepathically link up with her dying friend. Soon after Xavier and his boy band showed up looking to add a female to the team.

    If this is true Bendis sure has a thing for picking small character from random old issues of Marvel and turning them into something. He did the same thing with Jessica Jones. It's pretty cool though. I wish he'd do that with Tuk.

    I was actually being funny since everyone was saying it was Jean but it sort of fits that a dead character would return as an angel.

    Not really. Bendis created her. She wasn't plucked from some random old issue. He created her shortly after joining Marvel and has stuck with her since. PAD is the ultimate writer when it comes to making forgotten random D-listers happen

    Well I think that's definitely what Angela is, even if it's not Jean specifically. There's no way there's not something behind Peter and Tony saying she looks familiar, and considering heaven is a place where people go when they die and angels are the reborn form of those people, it all adds up to her being an old dead Marvel character to me.

    Jessica Jones is an old Spider-Man character from issue #4 who had a crush on Peter. That said, she didn't have a name then, but she's that character.

    I looked it up and apparently it's true. Bendis did create the character and then picked some un named girl from Amazing Spider-man #4 and said it was her. It's on the Marvel wiki.

    So he created Jessica and then later said she was some unnamed girl in the panel of an old comic? That's different than how Mr. Dent made it out to seem. Like I said, Jessica is a Bendis creation.

    You keep saying that. I just reread the issue looking for that, and they never say that. They say she looks similar to humans. Not that she looks familiar.

    You're looking for things that aren't there.

    Guess you didn't look hard enough. >.>

    Pretty sure he didn't go back and do it. She was like that from the beginning in Alias iirc. She was that character and her inability to confess to Peter spurred her development. That's the way I remember it, but I haven't read the book in years.

    We (the readers) don't know her origin at the start of the Alias series.
