The Omega Men hail from the Vegan system, a planetary system with twenty-five habitable planets, which as of the early 1980s had been ruled for millennia by the Citadelians, a race of warriors cloned from the First Citadelian the demigod-like son of X'Hal.
The Citadelians established a tyrannical regime based in a fortress moon known as the Citadel. The citadel then set about to conquer the younger races of Vega. Originally there were only two races in the Vegan system, the primitive Branx and the warlike Okaarans, but the Psions used Okaaran DNA to create the other twenty-three races of Vega such as the Tamaraneans, Euphorixians, Aelloans, Karnans, and the Changralyns.
The Omega Men were assembled as a group of renegades and representatives of conquered Vegan worlds to fight Citadelian aggression. Pre-Infinite Crisis the team was based on the planet Kuraq. The Omega Men are important peacekeepers in their sector because the Green Lantern Corps is not allowed into Vegan space, due to a long standing agreement between the Guardians of the Universe and Agent Orange.
The Omega Men made a return appearance in the Adam Strange mini-series, Planet Heist. Still led by Tigorr, with veteran members Broot, Doc, Elu, Artin, and Harpis. They were joined by a group of new members whose names were given, but not identified in the book. They were still fighting the Spider Guild. One of their new members, a precog, leads them to wait in a Rannian space station with the ultimate purpose of meeting Adam Strange. The first Doc was killed by a Durlan assassin and impersonated.
