The Skull BrothersTwo sons of the very dangerous Skull family. They are very mysterious.

- Barrier Warrior: Have a force field as a part of their many Hidden Weapons.
- Cool Bike: Kids of no more than 16 years with motorcycles.
- Creepy Children: When we see them without their masks for the first time... their eyes are just as bugged out as they were with the masks on.
- Establishing Character Moment: The first time the reader sees the Skull Brothers they are talking about how truly ignorant their bully attackers are and are defending their mother's honor.
- Family Honor: The Skull Brothers love their mother and will do anything for her. Badmouthing the Skull family in their presence would be unwise.
- Hidden Weapons: As displayed in ther Extended Disarming sequence the brothers apparently carry grenades, kunai knives, garrote, sai, and guns on their person at any given time. They also have a number of gadgets in their suits which grant them special abilities such as smoke shooting from the fingers and a fire-breathing apparatus.
- Innocence Lost: Because their father was killed by a superhero and they have known about the hero/villain armistice from a young age they've had to grow up faster than most students at Gladstone's.
- Siblings in Crime / The Family That Slays Together: They are in fact brothers from the Skull family.
- Verbal Tic: Skull Brother 2 (the younger one) doesn't talk much, but when he does it's usually a simple "Yup."
- Weapon of Choice: Brother 1 favors his Sickles and Brother 2 favors his trusty rifle. Fitting because they are both a little psycho and 2 is stoic.
