Costume: Shevaun’s costume is actually part of the Fabric of the Universe. It is bonded to her on a molecular level and may not be removed, however she is able to store it in a pocket dimension and call it to her when needed. The costume has become a part of her and grants her the following powers.

Phasing: Incredible
True Flight: Amazing
Telepathy: Incredible
Mental Blast: Remarkable
Energy Blast: Shevaun can fire destructive bolts of mystical energy capable of inflicting Amazing force or energy damage. These bolts ignore body armor but not force fields.
Force Field: Monstrous
Cosmic Awareness: Unearthly
Dimensional Travel: She can traverse dimensions with Amazing ability.
Time Travel: Allows Shevaun to travel to any spot in the time stream with Unearthly ability.
Energy Absorption: She is capable of absorbing Unearthly levels of mystical energy. Energy absorbed in this fashion is actually sent through the void which is her costume and arrives in a sub-dimension contained therein.

She may possess other powers that have not yet been shown.

Body Armor: Comprised of a number of metallic devices which are attached to the Fabric that she wears, the armor provides no additional defensive bonuses. It does, however, help regulate her power flow and prevents her from accidentally using too much energy. Towards the end of the series, Shevaun dispensed with wearing the armor at all, preferring to trust her own instincts when using her powers.
Graviton Phase Blast: Not used very often, this powerful device fires an energy blast that does Unearthly damage. It has a secondary blast that can slow down or speed up time in a given area. It does this with Time Control at Excellent level.

Daughter of Mys-Tech board member Ranulph Haldane, Shevaun found herself orphaned after her father was killed by the demon Mephisto, who had granted he and the other Mys-Tech board members immortality in exchange for meeting certain quotas with regards to souls sent to Hell. With Ranulph attempted to circumvent this agreement, Mephisto slew the man while Shevaun watched from afar.

As the Chief Researcher for Mys-Tech, and the most accomplished Techno-Wizard on the board, Ranulph made sure that his daughter’s education in the art of Hi-Tech Mysticism was second to none. Though he kept secret from her the details of Mys-Tech’s connections to Shevaun, she felt responsible for the evil her father and his friends committed and swore that she would see Mys-Tech destroyed.

This vow was made possible by the intervention of a being known as Darkangel, the Angel of Death. This being appeared before Shevaun and donated a fragment of the Fabric of the Universe, which attached itself to her flesh and became her costume. Contact with such a powerful element of the universe opened her mind to new possibilities and granted her enormous cosmic powers. As Hell’s Angel, Shevaun battled the forces of Mys-Tech for many months, gaining tutelage under Prof. Xavier’s X-Men and forming a close friendship with Betsy Braddock. She frequently adventured alongside a Guide from the spirit realm at this time and spent a good deal going to and from the Realm of Dead Superheroes where she sometimes gained aid.

Eventually, Shevaun came to the conclusion that Darkangel had manipulated her and not told her certain details of her powers intentionally. As a result, she abandoned the name he had given her (Hell’s Angel) and chose Dark Angel, instead. Why she’d choose the Angel of Death’s name as her own when she was, in fact, angry at the being is open to debate.

Regardless, Shevaun aided several other heroes in defeating Mys-Tech during the so-called Mys-Tech Wars and then proceeded to aid Death’s Head II in repelling the destruction of Earth. Since then, Shevaun has not appeared, but presumably she still lives in her father’s castle in Darkmoor, England and continues to protect the Earth from threats both magical and technological.
