Her tattoos read, "Dark Angel" on one side and "Hell's Angel" on the opposite. Myself and several volunteers met her under a bridge in Nashville, TN as we were handing out food. She walked away with enough groceries to last for about a week.
After I looked back at the photo, I got to thinking about those tattoo's. I wondered if she had a significant other who was a member of the notorious biker gang. I later realized that her tattoo's were most likely referring to Marvel Comic characters after noticing Tweety Bird.
Dark Angel (Shevaun Haldane) was originally known as Hell's Angel. She is a fictional super-heroine from the United Kingdom’s Marvel Comics. She first appeared in 1992 as “Hell’s Angel,” but after a mere 5-issues, her name changed to Dark Angel due to legal threats by the original Hells Angels (without an apostrophe s in Hells) bikers based in California. A filed lawsuit was later dropped when Marvel donated $35,000 to the Ronald McDonald House in the name of both Marvel and Hells Angels.
The Hells Angels have always acted fast in protecting their name, in fact the name has been trademarked since the 1970’s. Prior to that in the 60’s, gang members would literally beat up anyone using their name when they shouldn't, according to a March 2011 article in Intellectual Property magazine. Attorney Fritz Clapp represented the Hells Angels at the time of the suit.
