Go To

Hexagon Death Squad is an ongoing webcomic by the troper known as [AOD]. Started in 2008, it stars a six-woman assassination squad and their adventures as they take out "criminals" for a totalitarian Police State world government in an alternate timeline Earth where the Cuban Missile Crisis led to a nuclear war.

The comic can be found here.


  • Alternate History: In the HDS storyline, the world is ruled by the AEGIS police state, which took power after the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis escalated into a nuclear war.
  • Anti-Hero: Jennifer Ruiz can be thought of as this.
  • Eye Scream: Jenna pulls one of these in Chapter 1 in a fight scene against an enemy Mook.
  • Heroic BSoD: Kaycee has a moment of this after she steals Jenna's thunder by stabbing the Big Bad in the back at the climax of the last Fight Scene in that chapter.
  • Hollywood Healing: Somehow Jenna had no bruises on her face, despite being punched in the face by a battle-nurse in Chapter 5.
  • Hot-Blooded: When the blood starts pumping in this comic it runs very hot.
    • Also, Jason of the local Goldfish Poop Gang is almost an expy of Kamina.
  • Made of Iron: Subverted in Chapter 2 as Allison takes four arrows to her gut and is out of commission for the next three months as she recovers.
  • Male Gaze: This is very much a "guy's" comic. I mean, c'mon. Pretty girls with swords?

  • Martial Pacifist Kaycee adopts an oath against killing because she just can't deal with it.

  • Out of the Inferno: Coral does this after surviving a car crash while standing atop a humvee that EXPLODES. Oh, and did I mention that she just CHOPPED THE ROOF OPEN WITH A GIGANTIC SWORD?!
  • Panty Fighter: Averted, as the HDS women - in general - tend to wear modest, functional clothing.
  • Police State: Willing to sacrifice a few hundred people to get a few "terrorists"
  • Power Limiter: Subverted in Chapter 3, where Arundhati just flat out lies that she was fighting without holding back.
