For real? The first I ever heard about this.


I kid you not as absurd as it sounds. Blog entry by former Marvel UK editor John Freeman:

"Ah, Hell's Angel - the most tortured superheroine in the Marvel UK pantheon, ever. Legal threats from the Hells Angels (I kid you not) forced the name cahnge and prompted legal searches to ensure all other MUK character names weren't infringing other rights holders (it was okay to name a comic Warheads but we weren't to try copyrighting the name on a missile...)"

Renamed to Dark Angel.

I see. I would have thought that they would have been flattered that Marvel named a character after their organization but I guess not.

how about you fulfill your stereotypical gender role and make me a sandwich.


No no, not a sandwich. From the amount of time you spend on that pot, you need some more veggies.
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.
