Three average kids dared entering a haunted mansion and freed a phantasm who granted them their wish to be their favorite comic book superheroes. But Flabber also released evil demon monsters from the comic, who plan to take over the world. The evil Vexor summons evil warrior monsters from the comic books to fight for him. After all his failed attempts, he creates his own Shadowborg to take away their powers but thanks to the help of the White Blaster he was defeated. Vexor was sent back to the comic after his friend Nukus betrays him. Nukus is then left to fight the new Beetleborgs Metallix and the Astral borgs.
|Nukus discovers that his creator was actually Art Fortune's incarcerated brother, Les Fortunes. Nukus busts Les out of prison and Les now serves him by creating new villains and monsters for him. In turn, Art creates new powers, armor, and weapons for the kids, they rename themselves Beetleborgs Metallix. They are later assisted by the Astralborgs, four Beetleborgs created by Art Fortunes as a child when he and Les worked together on their only collaboration, the Lost Comic. Nukus formed his own evil group, named the Crustaceans. He would later recruit more faithful followers from the Lost Comic in the form of the Mantrons.
Nukus and Vilor eventually gained upgraded Mega forms and to counteract this, the Beetleborgs were given an upgrade by Roboborg, who fused their Metallix powers with their original powers, creating the Mega Spectra Beetleborgs. The Beetleborgs gaining the enemy Roboborg Boron as an ally, stripping Nukus of his greatest weapon, and Les Fortunes made the decision to return willingly to Charterville prison, disabling Nukus' ability to create new monsters out of illustrations. With no known way of returning the Crustaceans to the comic world, the Beetleborgs were left with an unresolved final battle with what was left of their foes.
