The Volgan war has raged for years, spreading off of Earth and on to Mars. Now an Earth general has assembled a team of advanced robots — capable of withstanding atomic, bacterial or chemical attack — to finally conquer the 'devil planet.'
They are Hammerstein, a war-droid whose chest 'puffs' with pride when he hears the national anthem; Joe Pineapples, a secretive, ice-cool sniper; Blackblood, so evil he drinks the oil of fallen robots; Mongrol, a mindless killing machine; Happy Shrapnel, a sharp-shooting old-timer; Steelhorn, the self-styled 'greatest robot ever created'; and Deadlock, the mysterious Khaos-worshipper and wielder of the mystical Ace of Swords. They are the A.B.C. Warriors — and they've come to tame a planet. Spread the word!
