The Many-Angled Ones are primordial cosmic entities that inhabited the spaces between universes. They were reported as the memory-echoes of the nightmares that plagued the first Daemons, but there were ancient, pestilential ghoul-worlds in dying realities still devoted to their worship. They were documented as the first beings ever to grow old.
These chthonic entities whispered their influence to the Captain Marvel on his deathbed in the universe that would eventually become known as the Cancerverse and convinced him to initiate the ritual of Necropsy that destroyed the avatar of Death and released the Angled-Ones into the universe's plane of existence.
Representatives: Among the many entities' names invoked by the denizens of the Cancerverse, and presumably those of the Many-Angled Ones, were Kthl, Yot-Soter, Shuma-Gorath, Nyerlathortech, Llehk, Yoggor, Yoth
- The many-angled ones are fictional beings linked to the Cthulhu Mythos. They first appeared in Grant Morrison's story Zenith (1987), where they were known as the Lloigor, Cthulhu Mythos creatures created by August Derleth and Mark Schorer in "The Lair of the Star Spawn" (1932).
- The Many-Angled Ones were introduced in Marvel Comics by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, in the cosmic crossover event "Realm of Kings" (2009).
- In that story, the Many-Angled Ones corrupted a reality, Earth-10011, in a Lovecraftian way, with many names of that world (at least some being those of Many-Angled Ones) evoking the Cthulhu Mythos: Kthl (Cthulhu), Yot-Soter (Yog-Sothoth), Nyerlathortech (Nyarlathotep), Llehk, Yoggor, Yoth.
- Shuma-Gorath, first appearing in The Curse of the Golden Skull by Robert E. Howard (first published in 1967) and into Marvel Comics in 1972 (mentioned in Journey into Mystery Vol 2 #1, first appeared in Marvel Premiere #5), was also mentioned in Thanos Imperative #6, seemingly as one of the Many-Angled Ones.
