She is an Asgardian.  Cast out of her home and wanting nothing to do with Asgard, Angela must now strike out on her own!  But what does Angela have that both Asgard and Heven want?

“Priceless” pt 2 (of 6)
What on Earth has made runaway Angela return to grimy old Earth?  Is it fighting? It's probably fighting. It's usually fighting. You know what she's like.  (Spoilers: It's not fighting. More spoilers: it does involve fighting, but she honestly wasn't planning it, no, really, honest.)
Angela; Asgard's Assassin (2014 series) #3 (of 6)
By Kieron Gillen & Phil Jimenez / Lebeau Underwood and Marguerite Bennett / Kieron Gillen & Stephanie Hans. 
“Priceless” pt 3 (of 6)
The Tenth Realm of Heven crashes into... wait, which number is Vanaheim? Well, Vanaheim. We’re going to Vanaheim for adventures, fun and bleak existential horror!  Does Loki join the pursuit of Angela and her tiny, diaper-wearing charge? Well, we’d have to be really cruel to mention him here if he’s not going to turn up. Loki Lies, not solicits. Solicits are always 100% honest.  Plus, find out why saying “All good angels go to heaven” would get you stabbed by Angela. She’s a little touchy on the topic of the afterlife. 
Angela; Asgard's Assassin (2014 series) #4 (of 6)
By Kieron Gillen & Phil Jimenez / Lebeau Underwood and Marguerite Bennett / Kieron Gillen & Stephanie Hans. 
“Priceless” pt 4 (of 6)
We’ve been to Earth for street level Marvel fun. We’ve been to the Nine Realms for fantasy Marvel fun. Next up: deep space, for (er) deep space Marvel fun.  Can Kieron and Marguerite resist the chance to write the characters from last year’s awesome summer blockbuster? Clue: Rhymes with Nardians of the Galaxy.  (Of course not, you silly bears.) 
Angela; Asgard's Assassin (2014 series) #5 (of 6)
By Kieron Gillen & Phil Jimenez / Lebeau Underwood and Marguerite Bennett / Kieron Gillen & Stephanie Hans. 
“Priceless” pt 5 (of 6)
Superheroic to-do lists are quite the thing. Today, Angela’s read “INVADE MY HOMELAND, WHILST PURSUED BY ASGARDIANS, CARRYING A DEMONIC CHILD WITH ONLY MY SARCASTIC SPACE FRIENDS FOR COMPANY.”  What will Starlord do when he discovers that Belinda Carlisle has totally lied to him? BECAUSE HEVEN IS A PLACE FULL OF ANGELS OUT TO KILL HIM.  Angela makes a difficult decision. Also some easier ones, primarily involving stabbing.

ANGELA DID WHAT!?!?!?  (Aside from get a new costume.)  In the climax of a battle between Heven and Asgard, both their futures are changed forever.  So... how is Sera alive? Clue: :(
