Lost Hex[1] is a location that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by IDW Publishing. It is a location that was once visited by Sonic the Hedgehog.



For an unknown amount of time, the Lost Hex has hosted a species called the Zeti, with the most notable of them being the villainous Deadly Six. Dr. Eggman traveled to this planet with his many Badniks and enslaved the Deadly Six with an ancient relic he managed to acquire. While there, Eggman built a structure in Lava Mountain Zone as his main base of operations for the Eggman Empire. Soon, Sonic the Hedgehog arrived on the scene and unwillingly freed the Deadly Six. The Zeti turned on Eggman and used their electromagnetic powers to control Eggman's horde of Badniks against him and Sonic. Despite their effors, Sonic managed to stop both the Deadly Six and Eggman.[1][2][3] While there, he received help from the Wisps.[1] Following this defeat, the Deadly Six, took over Eggman's base in Lava Mountain Zone and remade it in their image, calling it "Zeti Castle".[4]

The Last Minute

One day at Zeti Castle, Zor reported to Zavok that the Eggnet was in chaos due to Eggman's doings on the world below. The two were soon visited by a person named Dr. Starline. He introduced himself as an assistant to Eggman and requested that the Deadly Six help them with a current crisis that they were in. Starline let Zavok know that Eggman did not actually know he was on the Lost Hex but told him that working with the Eggman Empire once again would give the Deadly Six an opportunity to make ammends with the doctor, command incredible power and destroy Sonic. Hearing all of this made Zavok accept Starline's proposal. After the doctor left however, Zavok confided in Zor how Starline made a mistake and that they would capitalize on it.[4] Zavok soon assembled the entire team to inform them of Starline's offer and how they would immediately betray him, though they all seemed to barely listen to him. Zeena initially showed dislike for the idea of going back to Eggman as it could very well be a trap. Zavok immediately snapped at this, saying that since they underestimated the doctor the first time, they were now well prepared. Zavok planned for them to punish Eggman for their humiliation, destroy Sonic for defeating them, and then destroy their world below.[5]

Some time later, Master Zik praised Zavok for his initiative on letting the Deadly Six bide their time to let their anger and hatred fester but warned that their vengeance against Sonic and Eggman must be exact. Soon, the duo were met by Starline, who told them that today's events cemented the fact that the team's help was needed. To prove that they could exert their will over machines, Zavok took control of a Moto Bug and had it drive around. Starline then told that after he made last minute preparations on his end, he would come back for the Deadly Six. After Starline left, Zik gloated as to how he was naïve and they would swiftly betray him. Zavok declared that they will use the Zombots to destroy Eggman, Sonic and the entire world below for merciless vengeance and absolute victory.[6]
