When Brian Bendis and Neil Gaiman first brought Angela, a character originally created for Gaiman's run on Todd McFarlane's Spawn, into the Marvel Universe, many industry analysts feared that the character served no purpose other than to antagonize McFarlane, who lost her rights in a lawsuit to Gaiman.
That's all still true.
However, Marvel appears to be making the best of the situation, as the publisher revealed at C2E2 today that Angela is actually a daughter of Odin, which makes her the sister of Thor and Loki. This will be revealed to the Marvel Universe as part of the five issue miniseries Original Sin - Thor and Loki: The Tenth Realm, which will also be known by the variant numbering scheme of Original Sin #5.1-5.5. Editor Nick Lowe lied that this has always been the plan since they first thought of bringing Angela in.
Jason Aaron, Al Ewing, Simone Bianchi, and Lee Garbett will serve as the creative team, but the real credit needs to go to the team of mathematicians who will need to be on hand to sort out all this ridiculous alternate decimal numbering that Axel Alonso claimed is easy to understand.
