Angor is a distant planet that is home to the Assemblers.
Angor's resident superhero team, the Assemblers, were too wrapped up in their own fame to really protect Angor from any serious threats. There was a nuclear holocaust caused by a terrorist group of supervillains called The Extremists, which eventually wiped out almost their entire world, including several of the Assemblers, and the Extremists themselves. Although the remaining heroes Wandjina, Blue Jay and Silver Sorceress saw their folly and regrouped as the nobler and more effective Champions of Angor, they were still too late to save their world. Eventually they left to save other worlds from the problems that had caused their own to fall, arriving on Earth, where they conflicted the Justice League when trying to destroy that world's nuclear weapons. Sometime later, a group of too-accurate robot duplicates of The Extremists from an amusement park also escaped to Earth, and caused trouble for Justice League Europe. Dreamslayer of Angor is revealed to have survived the holocaust, not being technically human, and while the rest of the robots were merely shut off, he was put in prison.
- Angor is a tribute to the Marvel Universe and most of its characters are close analogues of various Marvel Comics characters. For instance, the Justifiers are a stand-in for Marvel's Avengers.
- When Angor was first introduced in Justice League of America #87, it appeared to be an alien planet in the Earth-One universe. Post-Crisis (in Justice League #2), Angor was changed to be a Earth-like planet in another dimension (but not an alternate Earth).
- With the recreation of the Multiverse following the events of 52, a version of Angor has been allocated to the parallel reality known as Earth-8, and been specified as an alternate Earth. Angor is referred to as Earth-8 for the first time in Countdown #29.
