Wearing the traditional battle regalia one must don in order to battle demons, Rob Liefeld’s Avengelyne leaped into battle with only bathing suits and oddly placed clothing straps to serve as protection. Sure, that makes sense. Actually, it was the ‘90s over at Image, so it makes perfect sense. What

use do warrior women/angels of God have for armor that covers, at the very least, 50 percent of their body? None!

Despite her skimpy and otherwise hideous outfits, Avengelyne lasted quite a while in comics. She appeared not just in Image Comics, but Awesome Entertainment and Avatar Press. Throughout it all, she kept experiencing costume changes with each change only helping the heroine come across as a lady of the night who just so happened to wield swords.
