Angelo Bend, alias Angle Man was an Italian master thief who used his special Angler to escape authorities as Angle Man. He was caught by Donna Troy while trying to steal an ancient artifact from a museum. Even though Donna, as Troia, was trying to stop the villan, Angle Man formed a bit of a crush on the Amazon. He became so enamored with her that he instinctively transported himself to Themyscira seeking Donna's help when he was attacked by a Fury possessed Barbara Minerva. Later it was learned that he had been hired by Barbara, the previous Cheetah, who had lost her powers to Sebastian Ballesteros and needed the stolen artifacts to regain them. He was also seen grieving at Donna Troy's funeral after she was briefly killed by a Superman robot, and most recently has become a member of the latest Secret Society of Super-Villains. Whether he and the Cheetah have buried the hatchet or not remains to be seen.
In the DC Universe One Year Later, Selina Kyle has given up her mantle as Catwoman after having a child. Her associate and friend Holly Robinson has taken over the Catwoman persona.
Bend became obsessed with Catwoman and bent on revenge. He targeted Holly Robinson, her successor, not realizing that he was going after the wrong person. He has since been defeated by Holly once, but has been approached by a new villain calling himself the Film Freak.
The Angler allows Angle Man to teleport and alter space, gravity, and perceptions.
