A great image is worth using twice!

Born Angeline Marietta Salvotini to parents Marietta and Peter Salvotini, Angie married scientist Edward Thriller. She is Tony (Salvo) Salvotini’s sister. The couple has one child, Scotty.

As a result of one of her husband’s genetic experiments gone awry, Angie became merged with Edward, becoming “spirit” to his “flesh”. She gained the ability to see glimpses of possible future events, and she can become part of any inanimate object. The only living beings she can merge with and manifest herself through are her brother, due to their similar genetic structures, and Beaker Parish, due to his being an artificially created life form. When she appears, Edward disappears, a situation which Fleming had only begun to explore the ramifications of before he left the series.

Paging M.C. Escher! From #3.

She is the de facto leader of the Seven Seconds, due to her godlike nature and her precognitive glimpses that set events into motion. In the text pages that appeared in various DC books at about the time issue 4 came out, Fleming describes her as “An omnipotent, ethereal female who performs the godlike function of manipulating and coordinating Earthly events…sort of a cross between Jesus Christ and my mom”.
