The Freedom Force
Voiced by: George Ledoux
An aging Nuclear physicist who helped create the Atom Bomb. He gets shot when he observes another scientist selling secrets to the Obviously Evil Sukhov. In his dying moments he touches an Energy X infused statue and is revived as... THE MINUTEMAN!
- Arbitrary Skepticism: He initially refuses to believe that Mentor is an alien, because he doesn't believe in aliens.
- Badass Bookworm: He was an old scientist before gaining his powers. His detailed knowledge of nuclear weapons still comes in handy from time to time.
- Badass Grandpa: Despite him being de-aged by the Energy X infusion he's at least 60 years old at the start of the game.
- Cane Fu: His walking cane becomes his main weapon when he gets his powers.
- Captain Ersatz: He is basically Captain America wearing an American Revolution-themed costume.
- Catchphrase: "For Freedom"
- Right Makes Might!
- "Stars and bars!"
- Determinator: He can have up to three Heroic points. In the second game, where Heroic points can be used to bring a fallen hero back on his feet, he can be quite difficult to put down for good.
- Fountain of Youth: One of the effects of his exposure to Energy X.
- Glass Cannon: Minuteman hits like a truck in melee with his decent strength and high-damage attacks, but has a below-average endurance and goes down quickly under concentrated fire.
- In a Single Bound: His enhanced strength and agility allow him to jump much higher than a normal human.
- Personality Powers: His patriotism revives him as Minuteman.
- Super Strength: He's one of the heroes who can lift and throw the heavier stuff (cars, water tanks...).
- Wearing a Flag on Your Head: His costume is a star-spangled ensemble inspired by a American Revolution-era Minuteman.
- You Have to Believe Me: Was fired for accusing a co-worker of being a soviet spy, he was right

A former advisor to Lord Dominion. However, when he learned of his master's plan for Earth, he fled with Energy X in order to gift it to the best of humanity so they may stand up to the Domain. He then takes it upon himself to guide Earth's heroes as... MENTOR!
- Captain Ersatz: Of Martian Manhunter, with bits of Professor X thrown in.
- Catchphrase: "Rings of Rexor".
- Defector from Decadence: He defected from Lord Dominion's court to prevent him conquer the Earth and ruling the whole universe.
- Evil Chancellor: Inverted, Mentor was an advisor to Lord Dominion but opposed him when he heard his plan to dump Energy-X on Earth's worst and let them destroy themselves.
- Little Green Men: His original body wasn't 100% this but it was close.
- I Love Nuclear Power: Has a couple of radiation based moves
- Mr. Exposition: Being the only one on Earth who knows about Lord Dominion and Energy X, he fills this role.
- Pstandard Psychic Pstance: One of his combat animations.
- Psychic Powers: He lacks physical strength and speed but has a lot of different powers to make up for that.

A former petty criminal that was nearly killed in neighbourhood gang warfare. When he gains his power, he learns the true scope and beauty of the world and reforms as the fiery and passionate... EL DIABLO!
- Captain Ersatz: Of the Human Torch, but Hispanic.
- Dark Is Not Evil: A guy with the nickname "El Diablo" and who wears a black and red costume with a burning pitchfork logo... Not only is he a member of the good team, but he is a genuinely nice guy instead of a Token Evil Teammate.
- Flight: As expected from the above trope.
- Foreshadowing: Tombstone claims that he will one day marry the Sea Urchin. Mind you, at he time he said it El Diablo had been erased from time, and his memory was possibly as muddled as everyone else's.
- Glass Cannon: Can't take much but his higher tier moves can decimate anything that doesn't resist fire.
- Gratuitous Spanish: Every other word he says is Spanish.
- The Lancer: The hotheaded Latin Lover to Minuteman's serious Cape.
- Latin Lover: He never misses an opportunity to voice his attraction to a woman.
- Magikarp Power: In the first game, he only has his basic attacks, none of which are upgraded and to top it off he has an elemental weakness to the enemies he's introduced to. But level him up and he becomes one of the best damage dealers in the game. In the sequel, he's nearly indispensable for the first half of the game.
- Neighborhood Friendly Gangsters: Before his empowerment with Energy X, he ran with a Latino street gang in the Barrio.
- Personality Powers: Take a guess.
- Playing with Fire: Caused by Energy X interacting with his hotheaded nature.
- Retgone: Entropy erases him from time shortly into the third act of the second game. He gets better by the end.

The prettiest girl on campus, she was disdainful of her roommate's Wiccan beliefs. But one night, her roommate's mysterious statue talks to her and gives her great powers, and instructs her to fight evil as... THE ALCHEMISS!
- Action Girl: Some of her abilities allow her to punch enemies.
- Alpha Bitch: Before gaining her powers, Alchemiss was self-centred and vain.
- Attempted Rape: What was probably going to happen to her if she did not get her powers.
- Expy: She has elements of Scarlet Witch, even her powers have similar peculiarities (Scarlet Witch is a mutant but her powers are also magic, Alchemiss got powers from the statue of a goddess imbued with Energy-X) In the sequel she gets many elements from Jean Grey although it may also count as a Scarlet Witch reference.
- Catchphrase: "Peaches and cream!"
- The Chick: Of the original members.
- Left Hanging: Her ultimate fate when she meets Energy X.
- Magical Gesture: She makes a very Doctor Strange-esque gesture when using her abilities.
- Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: It's never made clear if her powers are based on Energy X alone or were gifted to her by the Goddess.
- Skepticism Failure: She mocked her roommate for following some generic wiccanesque religion, then she gets her powers.
- Southern Belle: She speaks with a very pronounced Southern accent.

Millionaire Playboy who is struck with Energy X. He goes to his scientist brother for help when he begins to create Energy X uncontrollably, but then refuses the Powered Armor he is offered. Another blast of energy then kills his brother and destroys his lab. In penance for this, he dons the armour and becomes... THE MAN-BOT!
- Apologetic Attacker: He will often say "Sorry, I have to do this" while pummeling his opponents.
- The Big Guy: The largest of the original five members of Freedom Force.
- Break the Haughty: His extreme vanity disappears after he accidentally kills his brother with his abilities.
- Captain Ersatz: His powers and his plight are essentially those of The Human Bomb from Freedom Fighters. His armor also looks a lot like Iron Man's original set.
- Death by Origin Story: The death of his brother thanks to his powers is what caused him to become The Atoner.
- Heroic Sacrifice: At the end of the first Freedom Force, Man-Bot stays behind in the celestial clock to keep the time portal back to present day open, allowing Freedom Force to return home
- Jerk Jock: Shades of it in his backstory.
- Man in the Machine: He isn't a robot but a man wearing an armour designed to prevent the Energy-X imbuing his body from randomly exploding.
- Meaningful Name: Ted Taylor. Not only does it bring to mind Ted Kord, the Blue Beetle, but also Tim Taylor. "More power", indeed.
- Mighty Glacier: He's very resilient and punches hard, but walks slowly, although you can make him able to fly later on to improve his mobility. Leaving you able to play him as either a foot-slogging tank or a long ranged artillery/Energy battery.
- Millionaire Playboy: His backstory, he also has a little bit of Jerk Jock too.
- Name's the Same: His name is shared with that of a nuclear physicist, who is also called Ted Taylor.
- Personality Powers: He was very full of himself when he got affected by Energy X, resulting in him being literally full of energy.
- Power Incontinence: He's forced to always wear his containment suit to keep his powers in check. Even so, he'll occasionally let off destructive shockwaves when struck.
- Powered Armor: It was built to contain his unstable energy but it works just like one. Though how isn't explained, his brother built it as a mobility aid. Either he modified it himself or he powers the flight and energy blasts through the Energy X he creates alone.
- Superpower Meltdown: The Energy-X imbuing his body randomly discharges (it's what killed his brother). The armour is intended to prevent this.
- 24-Hour Armour: Justified in that, however uncomfortable wearing it may be, it's peanuts compared to what happens if he takes it off.

Bullied high school nerd who loves ants. One day, he's infused with the powers of the ants and then prevents his bullies from committing a far more serious crime. From then on he's dedicated to fighting crime as...THE ANT!
- Captain Ersatz: Spider-Man and bits of Hank Pym during his stint as Ant-Man.
- The Beastmaster: He commands ants! Not that this ability gets used much outside of cutscenes...
- Fast Tunnelling: His powers include the ability to rapidly burrow through the ground.
- Gadgeteer Genius: Makes his own acid bombs.
- Rock Beats Laser: More often than not the best way for Ant to do damage is not to use his acid bombs but to have him pick up big things (like rocks) and toss them at enemies. Especially useful and funny during the Deja Vu arc when enemies with laser pistols die from a thrown rock.
- Stone Wall: Can't inflict much outside of acid bomb or his later melee strikes but he has incredible endurance and agility.
- The Smart Guy: Often researches a way to beat the Monster of the Week.
- Wall Crawl: He can climb the walls to reach the top of buildings.

The young president of Minuteman's fan club is injured by Pinstripe while watching Freedom Force in action. A blood transfusion from his idol saves him in time, and so he decides to don a costume and aid his saviours as... LIBERTY LAD!
- Ascended Fanboy: He was the president of Minuteman's fanclub before gaining powers of his own.
- Captain Ersatz: Liberty Lad is, essentially, Bucky from Captain America.
- Fragile Speedster: He walks as fast as Minuteman and, like him, can jump on buildings from the ground he also punches quickly and can dodge attacks, but he is among the party members with the least hitpoints. After some leveling he becomes a Glass Cannon.
- I Shall Taunt You: He has the ability to enrage his foes with "Schoolyard Taunts."
- Kid Sidekick: Becomes one to Minuteman, despite the latter's protests.
- Reckless Sidekick: His recklessness is what leads to him gaining super powers in the first place, as he is injured while trying to get an up close look at Minuteman in action, resulting in the need for a Superhuman Transfusion from the latter. He continues to behave recklessly once he obtains the resulting powers, much to Minuteman's consternation.
- Superhuman Transfusion: How he got his powers.
- Throw Down the Bomblet: Many of his skills involve various types of grenades.

A deadly human hunting machine from the future possibly sent back to destroy Earth's mightiest protectors, Freedom Force themselves! Once neutralized, Mentor is able to realign the robotic rapscallion to the greater good as...MICROWAVE!
- Expy: His origin as an advanced robot built by a villain and subsequently joining the heroes is reminiscent of The Vision.
- Flight, Strength, Heart: On top of his radiation powers Microwave has the ability to retrieve fruit.
- Heel–Face Turn: Initially he's a Killer Robot from a Bad Future...
- Heel–Face Brainwashing: ...and then Mentor reprograms him to serve the forces of good.
- I Love Nuclear Power: His main weapon is a microwave beam that can irradiate targets.
- Laser-Guided Amnesia: Mentor's reprogramming, plus the damage he sustained in his first fight with Freedom Force conveniently erases his memories of the future.
- Mecha-Mooks: Microwave was one and his "Clone Self" ability allows him to make some for you.
- Pick Your Human Half: Averted in that Microwave looks and acts like a robot.
- Scissors Cuts Rock: One of Microwave's special abilities inverts the target's resistances and weaknesses, making what they could previously shrug off kill them. It's especially effective against Entropy.
- Shout-Out: Mike comes from a future where machines have usurped humanity and took over the world. Where have we heard that before?
- The Smart Guy: He's a robot from the future with highly advanced sensors. Kid knows stuff.

An ace pilot who loves speed. After his plane was shot down, he discovered he could outrun bullets and move fast enough to create whirlwinds. Though he opts for a quiet life back in Patriot City, Minuteman soons convinces him to become...BULLET!
- Blow You Away: Can create small tornadoes.
- Captain Ersatz: Of The Flash, powers-wise. His origin story is much closer to Hal Jordan's, though.
- Flash Step: One of his abilities allows him to do this.
- Healing Factor: Once he gets Fast Healing
- Lightning Bruiser: Bullet actually has good endurance and while individual punches may be weak the damage racks up pretty fast. This lets him take down groups of weaker mooks by himself.
- Personality Powers: Bullet loves speed so Energy X makes him the fastest man on Earth.
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Comes with the territory.
- Super Speed: Obviously.
- Weaksauce Weakness: He's a great character but keep him away from those radiation and acid spewing enemies.

Hank Waters was a down on his luck fisherman about to pack in the business. That is, until he discovered a stowaway on his boat and hit a storm. After the ordeal he found himself transformed into... MAN O'WAR!

- Eyepatch of Power: He wears an eyepatch over his left eye.
- Fish People: His exposure to Energy X mutated him into a piscine being with scales, fins and webbed fingers.
- Lightning Bruiser: Once he gets flight.
- Papa Wolf: Hints of it towards Sea Urchin, and the younger members of Freedom Force in general.
- Shock and Awe: His powers include bio-electricity.
- This Looks Like a Job for Aquaman: Man O' War is a pretty solid character but when the mechanical arc comes along he is practically required for his lightning attacks.
- In the sequel, his electricity and energy X-resistance makes him the best wraith-hunter bar none. He's also extremely good against the Final Boss.
- Weird Beard: It appears to be made of fish fins.
Voiced by: Emily Abercrombie
A young stowaway on Hank Water's ship. When a storm hits, she becomes the bubbly and eager...SEA URCHIN!

- Genki Girl: She's a perpetually cheerful and energetic teenager.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: As a side-effect of her Energy X exposure, she now has fuchsia-tinted hair.

A mysterious woman who appeared one day in Patriot Park. She can commune with nature, but none know her true identity. To the world she is known only as... EVE!
- Expy: She's basically a heroic Poison Ivy with Green Arrow and Hawkeye's archery skills and trick arrows.
- Garden Garment: She wears a bikini made of leaves.
- Green Thumb: She can summon entangling vines and swarms of leaves to attack her foes.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: She has an attribute called "Crack Shot" which increases her aim; since her arrow powers all have great accuracy already, her aim is pretty much perfect. She has a power called "Homing Arrow" that will follow its target even if that means changing direction mid-flight.
- Magic Kiss: So powerful that male enemies have a temporary Heel–Face Turn.
- Ms. Fanservice: Lets face it any scene Eve is in is fanservice.
- Naked on Arrival: She first arrived on Earth in the middle of a park wearing nothing at all.
- Statuesque Stunner: Is 7 feet tall.

Nathan Graves is a devoted husband, framed for his wife's murder by his slimy next door neighbour. Energy X strikes him at the moment of his execution. Nathan Graves dies, but in his place rises... TOMBSTONE!
- Anti-Hero: He's not that bad for a '90s Anti-Hero and seems more focused on people who evaded justice than just killing every bad guy that he finds (this makes sense since the Freedom Force probably wouldn't allow him around if he were a Sociopathic Hero.)
- Anti-Heroes Sound Deep
- Dark Is Not Evil: He is called Tombstone but he is a good guy.
- Darker and Edgier: Still Played for Laughs, but the guy possesses and kills people, attacks them with electricity from his own execution and causes animals to wither and die by his mere presence.
- Demonic Possession: An inverted heroic example Tombstone can possess enemies.
- Energy Being: Basically an energy x-induced ghost.
- Ghostly Chill: Tombstone's basic punches deal cold damage.
- Guns Akimbo: His "Spectre Shots" are a pair of pistols imbued with the electricity from his own execution.
- Horrifying Hero: With his skeletal motif, grim demeanor and questionable vitality, he's not only terrifying to criminals, but many of his teammates are ill at ease around him as well.
- Intangible Man: In his Secret Origins cutscene he displays this power, but it's not really a factor in gameplay.
- Lightning Bruiser: Tombstone has good stats across the board: The only thing that really stands out is his 7/10 endurance (granting him a massive 220 HP). His powers run the gamut from some decent and quickly unlocked attacks to some useful utility spells, like his possession spell, a few (mostly redundant) defensive powers, and a late-game teleport spell. His only real 'weakness' is his energy X vulnerability, which many late-game foes use, and one of his powers disables energy X attacks.
- '90s Anti-Hero: As a clash from the Silver Age of everyone else. The game still manages to play it for laughs.
- Not Too Dead to Save the Day: His "Dancing Dead" ability invokes this, temporarily resurrecting a fallen ally with a fleeting second life.
- Power Nullifier: His "Power Devour" ability.
- Shock and Awe: His pistols shoot electricity from his execution.
- That Man Is Dead:Tombstone: Run, fools, and tell the wicked that their lies shall be brought into the light. For where Nathan Graves once stood... only Tombstone remains!
- The Faceless: Never takes his execution hood off. It appears to have become his face.
- The Lancer: Never really interacts with Freedom Force's more idealistic members but his attitude is very much this when compared to Minuteman's.
- White Mask of Doom: Actually his execution hood.

- Bare Your Midriff: Her costume leaves most of her torso exposed.
- Bedlah Babe: Her costume features harem pants, gold bangles and curly-toed shoes.
- Cloudcuckoolander: She's a little off to say the least.
- Expy: She's basically Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie, but green. She even has a distinctive physical motion when doing her magic, namely snapping her fingers, and her outfit is basically identical.
- Fragile Speedster: She's extremely fast and agile, but really can't take a hit.
- Lethal Joke Character: Her only direct attack is a ranged joy buzzer that deals a mighty 4 damage and can't be set to auto-attack. With some proper micro-management, however, her utility spells and disruptive powers make her (potentially) one of the most powerful heroes in the game.
- Magic Carpet: Her main means of transportation.
- Maybe Magic, Maybe Mundane: Like with Alchemiss the source of her powers is a little ambiguous.
- Ms. Fanservice: A scantily clad female genie with a nice voice to boot!
- Reality Warper: Being a genie, this naturally comes with the territory. Her specific specialty is transforming and/or modifying allies and enemies alike.
- Shock and Awe: Her Electric Joy Buzzer and Static Zap attacks.
- Troll: In one scene, she turns Quetzalcoatl into a chicken for giggles.
Voiced by: Olga Bell (Johnny)/Keith Smith (Quetzalcoatl)

- Ship Tease: She shares some flirtatious dialogue With Bullet.

- Badass Normal: He's a normal man in a suit. In fact, he's probably more normal than the other 40's heroes.
- Except for the wrist mounted chainguns and the rocket pack with super-sonic capabilities.
- Reverse the Polarity: Invoked by Bullet to get Sky King's rocket pack working for real.

- Make Wrong What Once Went Right: He uses the Timemaster's powers to alter history so that the Nazis conquered the world.
- My Brain Is Big: Probably as a side-effect of his Psychic Powers, his head is grotesquely swollen to accommodate his overly-large cerebrum.
- No Swastikas: Despite wearing a Nazi officer's uniform, the swastika is conspicuously absent. Instead he sports an Iron Cross in its place.
- Stupid Jetpack Hitler: He uses Time Travel to invoke this trope in order to alter history to one where the Nazis won World War II.
- Those Wacky Nazis: Basically here so they didn't have to include any actual Nazi leaders.
Voiced by: Charis LeosA being of near infinite power. She thrives on the chaos of existence, and using her powers for pain and destruction only serve to heighten her abilities. Surely all the universe will not fall before the power of... ENTROPY!
- Barrier Change Boss: Her resistances to electricity, energy x and radiation are interchangeable — if she's hit by one, she becomes vulnerable to one of the two others. Bring a team of Man-Bot, Tombstone, Microwave and Man'O War and watch her crumple.
