Avengelyne [uh-van'-jah-leen] is a fictional comic book character created by Rob Liefeld and Cathy Christian. Avengelyne is an angel who fights the forces of evil and often finds herself face-to-face with demons and monsters. The original character design for Avengelyne was based on the likeness of former Vampirella model Cathy Christian. Originally published in 1995 by Maximum Press, she was also inspired by Ben Dunn's comic Warrior Nun Areala from Antarctic Press.

By the end of the 1990s, Avengelyne had been used in comics by Awesome Entertainment (only one issue published) and Avatar Press. Avengelyne more recently returned to comics in the Arcana Studio one-shot Avengelyne vs. Koni Waves in February 2010. In July 2011, a new ongoing Avengelyne series debuted at Image Comics under the creative team of Mark Poulton and Owen Gieni.


In July 2013, co-creator Rob Liefeld and Gina Carano announced that they were working on a big-screen adaptation of the series in which Carano would star as Avengelyne.[1] In November 2016, it was announced that Paramount Pictures had purchased the film rights for Avengelyne with Akiva Goldsman as the intended producer.[2]
