The first Agent Axis is a Nazi spy and foe of the Boy Commandos in DC Comics. She appears in issues # 1 and 3 of Boy Commandos comics; the stories were reprinted in 1971 in issues #6 and 7 of Mister Miracle.

In one appearance, she lays a trap by approaching the team as 'Sigrid' and claiming that Agent Axis is after her. The team believes her story and promises to protect her. After some time of nothing happening, they find that Nazi forces have ransacked their headquarters. They also find a note claiming Sigrid had been kidnapped.

Clues lead the Boy Commandos to the Radcliffe Estate, where the Nazis spring a trap and capture the young heroes. Rip, the team's leader, had suspected something and brought reinforcements. The Boy Commandos manage to escape and turn the tables on their assailants. All but Sigrid are captured.

The second DC Comics Agent Axis first appeared in World's Finest Comics #250 (April/May 1979), and was created by Gerry Conway. He is a foe of the World's Finest Team: Superman, Batman, Earth-Two Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, and Black Canary. Superman, Batman, Black Canary, and Green Arrow travel from the year 1978 to the year 1942 to repair damages to the time stream caused by Ravager, a being with the ability to travel through time. Earth-Two Wonder Woman joins the heroes on Earth-One from her own Earth's 1942. Agent Axis is a Nazi agent who kills Professor Ronsom, an American scientist working on a time traveling device, turning him into the Ravager and leading to the aforementioned time stream damages. Agent Axis later captures the Ravager in order to bring the secrets of time travel to Nazi Germany. During a battle in Bavaria, the World's Finest Team manages to activate a chronal transponder near the Ravager, returning the heroes to their proper times and places. Presumably, Agent Axis is also returned to his correct place and time. It is implied that only Batman, Superman, Green Arrow, and Black Canary retain memories of the prior events.[1][2]
