2000 AD in Stages

The A.B.C. Warriors

Seven military-grade robots deliver justice for those who can't defend themselves from the predations of corporate fascism.

As part of the complex Millsverse, the original series was a spin-off from Ro-Busters and first resurfaced as a crossover with Nemesis the Warlock. Prototype versions of the Warriors show up in Savage, which also has strong crossover links with Ro-Busters. Millsverse cross-pollination is not necessarily linear!

Who makes up the seven is often in flux, with a variety of line-ups over the years as some are killed off, some resurrected - and loyalty is never guaranteed.

Spread the word!
