History: Harvard entomologists Mike Ross, Priscilla Conway (also an Olympic gymnast) and Bobby Crabb (also an Olympic boxer), were unwillingly mutated into insect-sized humanoids by the alien insectoid race called the Svizz. The Svizz planned to use armies of insect-sized slaves to conquer Earth, but Mikros and his friends defeated their plans and overthrew their ruler, Super-Termitor. Later in the series, the heroic trio was forced to move to France, where they encountered their arch-eneny, Raoul de Roquemaure, Count of Monsegur, a.k.a. Psi, who turned Saltarella into his queen.
