Angon is a parasite from a race of shape-shifting parasites. They came from Earth, and their ship was boarded by a search team from the L.E.G.I.O.N. led by Layla. The parasites attacked the team that came onto the ship, until only Layla and Lobo were left. After the L.E.G.I.O.N. left, there were only six parasites left.

The parasite ship crashed on Earth. The remaining parasites hit it, then watched as a couple of motorcyclists rode up to investigate. Pritor, the leader, said to watch and observe. However, Angon just did her thing and attacked the motorcyclists. The other parasites, not wanting to leave everything to her, joined in.

After feeding on the motorcyclists spinal fluid, the parasites changed into human form, the only form that they could change into now. The others were mad at Angon. She left them, claiming the distant city she was going to go to as her own. That city was Metropolis.


When she got into the city, she knocked over an unfortunate bag lady’s hooch. The lady yelled at her, then was terrified as Angon shifted to her true form and fed. Angon decided that if she was going to get anywhere, she was going to have to keep her victims from screaming. She dumped the body down a storm drain, her eventual dumping ground.

Naturally, a number of people started disappearing. Among these was Tom O’Brien, who thought that he was saving a woman from an attacker, when the woman was actually Angon in her human form, trying to attack the “attacker”.

Angon fed on him and dumped him down into the storm drain, where he was found by the Underworlders. He was still alive, somehow, and he changed, forming blades all over his body. He took the name Edge and helped Henry Irons, the Man of Steel beat Angon, who moved on to a new city.

Sometime, she ended up in Gotham, where she slew a squad of 10 officers. One of them, officer Mao, changed like Edge. He now had a hard carapace for skin, as well as enhanced vision and other things. He helped Batman (the replacement Batman, after Bruce’s back was broken by Bane) to rid Gotham of Angon.

They thought that they had blown her up. But she survived and was rescued by a fisherman near the trap they had set.



Next, she attacked a guy named Jamm, and was transported to the future where she was up against the Legion of Super-Heroes. After the fight, she was sent back to the modern time. She traveled some more. Then she was tricked by Eclipso into attacking a laboratory in the middle of a lake that had a fusion reactor powered by one of Eclipso’s black crystals.

After the reactor was disabled, Eclipso possessed Angon and wreaked havoc with her. But they were stopped by Edge, Anima, Loose Cannon, Nightblade, and Sparx, along with the newest hero she created, Prism, the scientist who had created the fusion reactor.


In her human form, she’s attractive, with long reddish-brown hair, blue eyes, and slender.

She looks to be wearing a strange red suit, which looks like armor, but is actually her skin (it looks exactly like the skin of the parasite she becomes).


Angon acts cocky and reckless, and she’s quick to anger. She left the others because they disagreed with the way she acted. Later, when she was up against Eclipso, Eclipso tricked her into attacking the reactor with taunting words, and kept her anger up with a bunch of decoy people (he had possessed many people and was keeping the anger of Angon up by goading her on).
