The Hexagon Group was born either in 2002, when they made their first retroactive appearance in Strangers #1, or in the 1960s, depending upon how one looks at it.

Like The Justice Society of America and The Avengers, the group gathered together a single team of different heroes published by Editions Lug in their own series between 1964 and 1974.

There is Aster from the negative dimension of Zhud; Jeff Sullivan, a.k.a. the Man of Brass, descended from a long line of heroes; the powerful Dark Flyer; the beautiful Black Lys from France; Dax, the Mysterious Archer; and White Mask from the African Republic of Zambola, all brought together to fight the evil Melanos, Aster’s archenemy.

Later Hexagon finds itself in Zambola facing a terrifying new threat... A mysterious insect-like civilization threatens to overwhelm the Earth, turning its inhabitants into a hive. What past secret connects the Dark Flyer to the Hive Queen? What fateful decision must Black Lys take to save the planet? And what compels White Mask to leave Hexagon forever?
