History: (Fantastic Four I#237) - Julie Angel was the roommate of Frankie Raye, who at that time was dating the Human Torch. She first met the Torch when he visited the apartment one evening to see Frankie, and she made a quick introduction before departing.

(Fantastic Four I#242) - The Torch and Frankie visited Julie at the Village Theatre where she was performing. The theatre was next-door to Mama Leon's Italian restaurant which resulted in a strong odor, but Julie revealed that they had provided the restaurant staff with tickets for opening night to make sure they wouldn't be open. Just then, a strange display of white light flashed in the sky, and the Torch and Frankie departed to investigate.

(Fantastic Four I#244) - As Julie was doing her aerobics that evening, Johnny arrived at her apartment to inform her that Frankie was gone. Seeing that Johnny was distraught she helped calm him down, and contacted the Fantastic Four. Mr. Fantastic and the Invisible Girl soon arrived to retrieve him, and they told Julie how Frankie had become the new herald of Galactus. Julie was stunned by this development.

(Fantastic Four I#249) - Some time later, Julie ran into Johnny and the Thing in Central Park, where she was performing as a clown. She stammered when Johnny introduced her to the Thing, and felt bad for doing so, afraid that she had hurt the Thing's feelings.

(Fantastic Four I#251) - Julie attended an acting class held by Rolf Brandis alongside Sharon Selleck, her new roommate. Julie noticed actor Grey Landers among the students, and was immediately attracted to him, although she was afraid he might be gay. Johnny Storm showed up to attend the class as well and tried to flirt with Julie, but she only had eyes for Landers.

(Fantastic Four I#253) - After Sharon gave Julie a haircut, she suggested calling Johnny to get his opinion on the cut, but Julie's call to the Baxter Building was received by the villain Annihilus, who quickly ended the conversation.

(Fantastic Four I#256) - Sharon convinced Julie to come with her to the Baxter Building to find out what had happened to the Fantastic Four, but they arrived just as Annihilus had surrounded the building with an expanding force field.

(Fantastic Four I#257) - Julie and Sharon joined Johnny as he went hunting for a new apartment with an acting friend of hers, Norm Tobin. After checking out Johnny's new place, the four friends held a celebratory dinner together.

(Fantastic Four Annual#17) - After a date with Grey Landers, Julie answered a call from Sharon, who was trapped in the town of King's Crossing. Julie was concerned by Sharon's frantic message, and contacted the Human Torch to let him know.

(Fantastic Four I#263 (fb) - BTS) - When Landers received a major film opportunity in Los Angeles, Julie went with him. The deal fell through, but Julie found work doing magazine layouts.

(Fantastic Four I#263) - Julie attended a race being held at the Wonderworld amusement park, where the Human Torch was one of the celebrity racers. She met with him before the race and gave him a kiss for good luck-- annoying the Torch, who had only just gotten over her. Johnny was seemingly killed in the race when his car crashed, but the Thing suspected foul play and Julie directed him toward Alden Maas, the man who had sponsored the race.

(Heralds#4 - BTS) - Julia was visited by Nova's incomplete spirit and decided to aid Nova in reuniting her with Frances, and therefore the rest of Nova's essence.

(Heralds#4) - Julie was visited by Invisible Woman, Monica Rambeau, She-Hulk, Hellcat, Emma Frost, Valkyrie, Valeria Richards and Frances Hyatt to talk with her about her old roommate Frankie Raye and find out if there was a connection between Frankie and Frances. Julie offered Frances to stay with her. During Julie's talk with Susan, Emma and She-Hulk Julia accidentally revealed that Nova had visited her earlier and she was going to aid her in putting Nova back together by ripping apart Frances. Nova's essence left Julia Angel and went after Frances, abducting Valeria Richards in the process.

Comments: Created by John Byrne.

Julie is clearly related to August D'Angelo, as he had a photo of her on his desk in a flashback in Alpha Flight I#12, but this relationship was not elaborated upon.

by Prime Eternal

Julie Angel should not be confused with:

Grey Landers was a handsome, popular actor who attended Rolf Brandis' acting classes as a refresher. Julie was instantly attracted to him, and the two of them eventually developed a relationship. Julie joined Grey when he moved to Los Angeles in the hopes of landing a part in a major film franchise, but when the deal fell through, he had to look for other work.
