The main group of cadets the story is focusing on, they're introduced in 2009, their first year of training.
The main protagonist, Kaycee is a normal girl with a troubled past who wants to be a superhero for personal reasons, despite having no powers herself.
And I Must Scream: Is forced to endure about ten minutes of a "psychic horror" version of this in order to be in position to stop DragonKlaw.
Badass Normal: What she is trying to become, possibly the first one to try since the very first generation of superheroes.
Bad Dreams: About her kidnapping. She gets over them eventually, with some psychic help.
Broken Pedestal: Briefly sees Go!Anna as this, due to her Jerkass attempt at dissuading Kaycee from becoming a hero. The two patch it up later after Kaycee proves what she's really capable of.
Charles Atlas Superpower: Her fighting prowess is severely underestimated by those around her. She beats herself up for not being able to jump four meters (13 feet), a hard task for any normal human being.
Death by Origin Story: A big part of what drove her to super heroics is her older sister getting killed by the mass murderer that abducted both of them. (The other part is being saved from this by Go!Anna.)
Determinator: She will not give up, despite everything that she goes through.
Future Me Scares Me: The knowledge that her future self, Maverick, became a vigilante hero unsettles her deeply.
Glory Seeker: She's not actually this, but quite a few other cadets see her this way.
Indy Ploy: Her mastery of this under pressure, coupled with her Determinator nature, is why she is somehow more successful than both her fellow cadets and established super heroes, despite her lack of powers.
Oblivious to Love: She never caught on that her friend Brian had a crush on her. Even after he all but spells it out as Brelvis, she doesn't quite catch on.
Sherlock Scan: Kaycee is able to grasp what's going on in a situation and react accordingly much faster than other cadets and even superheroes. She's able to tell there's a threat coming from a vent just from a few grains of sand falling out of it.
Your Worst Nightmare: She has two. Being attacked by her would-be killer and survivor's guilt at being alive instead of her older sister Alexis.
Despite the Arabic-sounding name, Fatima is actually an half-octopus-like merperson, and is one of Kaycee's closest friend at Magellan.
Bizarre Alien Biology: Her upper half is humanoid with gills and pointed ears, and her lower half is mainly octopus-like tentacles, complete with ink squirting action.
Naked on Arrival: In her introduction, she's topless, with only the strategic rim of her fishbowl-like tank there to prevent the audience from seeing everything.
New Powers as the Plot Demands: She already had tentacles that give her an iron grip, help her to move faster than a normal human being, and could shoot out ink, plus one-way telepathy that works underwater. Then it was revealed during a fight that the spurs on her arms had poison that could paralyze a human being.
Noble Fugitive: She was sent to Earth to keep her safe from political enemies of her family back home.
Orphan's Ordeal: Her worst fears during the Lock(e)down arc show her mother and father were killed right in front of her by the queen. Directly Lampshaded by the author in the notes section below the comic.
Flying Brick: Just like Epoch, this is basically her main superpower.
Freudian Excuse: During Lock(e)down, it's revealed that her mother Evangaline, was a Loony Fan of Epoch who stole his sperm so she could have his daughter. From a small flashback, it appears she was more concerned about Charisma being a little trophy than as a child. Eventually, she had a mental breakdown and ended up in an insane asylum, at which point Epoch finally found out he had a daughter. No wonder the poor girl has so many issues that can be exploited.
Half-Human Hybrid: Her powers aren't as strong as her father's due to her age and the fact her mother was a normal human being.
Heroic BSOD: Has one after learning that she died in the alternate timeline. Luckily, someone slaps her out of it.
Missing Mom: Her mother is never talked about. She's finally introduced via flashback in Lock(e)down.
Required Secondary Powers: Word of God is that her reflexes are tuned slightly faster than a normal human being, allowing her to make split-second changes when she's running so that she doesn't run into anything and turn her body into Jello.
A Flying Brick-type cadet whose powers developed during puberty, he has a lot of self-esteem issues. One of the many revolves around his inability to get intimate with those he cares about, including Kaycee.
Power Incontinence: Since his power developed during puberty instead of being born with them, he's still getting used to his super strength. He manages to smash a desk during a heated exercise with his other cadets. Word of God states that some items at the school are specifically reinforced so that he doesn't have to use kid gloves on the entire world all the time.
Prematurely Bald: After meeting his alternate self Victory Man II, his greatest fear is losing his hair early. It's eventually revealed in Lock(e)down that his fixation with his hair is really just the beginning of deep-seated issues regarding his self esteem.
A light-hearted cadet with powers over controlling mass, he enjoys playing pranks and making other cadets laugh.
Gravity Master: He can both makes objects heavier and lighter with his powers, with the latter shown being easier than the former.
I Believe I Can Fly: He can hover through reducing his mass and move faster through low-powered "moon walk."
Let's Get Dangerous: When he had to help take down a dragon when Magellan was under attack, all the joking was put aside.
Yin-Yang Bomb: Not his power set by himself. But when he and Louis combined their powers during a training exercise, he was able to lighten Louis' mass to the point where he could make extreme jumps that would otherwise not have been possible.
A Southern girl who is from a family of witches. Her guilt in her part of Chang's death has had some serious consequences.
From Nobody to Nightmare: Not herself personally, but whatever hitched along a ride inside her body after she tried to revive Chang has used her to cause serious mental damage to everyone on Lockedown.
Hairstyle Inertia: Lampshaded by present-day characters who note a decades-older future version of her has the exact same hairstyle as her present counterpart. She reveals she changes her hairstyle weekly and any similarities are just coincidental.
In the Blood: Her aunt was also a superheroine and witch before she was killed by the Evil Weevil.
Magic A Is Magic A: Her brand of magic is shown to need specific words and incantations, lest a mishap happen. Saying "Take me to the top of the tower" was supposed to take her to the top of a training tower....instead she ends up on top of the building.
Your Worst Nightmare: Her worst fear is, or is at least represented by bugs crawling all over her, even inside her body.
A wizard cadet fro, Hong Kong, he's shown to have a romantic interest in Maya. When his alternate self DragonKlaw shows up, he drains his lifeforce dry, though Chang manages to revive long enough to stop DragonKlaw and seal them both in an alternate dimensional portal. It's unclear if his spirit is alive or dead at this point.
Running on All Fours: He naturally runs this way, going fast enough to keep up with his partner, the speedster Nadine, in one exercise.
Tiny Guy, Huge Girl: Not just with girls, but with all cadets. Gifford's shown to only come up to most character's knees.
The Lost Lenore: He greatly misses his girl back home, Jin, who most likely thinks he's dead.
Your Worst Nightmare: Possibly because of his alien mindset, Gifford's worst fear keeps changing each time he tries to escape it. They include being rejected by his home, being lost forever between dimensions, and returning home to find everyone slaughtered without him being there to protect them. Rochelle diagnoses them all as being manifestations of his paranoid-guilt complex.
She's a Buddhist cadet with one of the highest IQs on the planet. Though she's often impatient with what she sees as stupidity from other cadets around her, she's trying become emotionally ready to be a superhero.
Always Someone Better: A positive example. Mindmistress is even smarter than Rochelle and is therefore one of the few adults she respects, even to the point of subconsciously wanting to design her future costume to be like her's.
Bald of Awesome: Rochelle gained her bald head, save for a tiny beaded rattail, when her genetic mutation kicked and she became super-smart. Before then, she had a full head of hair and a normal IQ.
Cut Lex Luthor a Check: It's mentioned by Rochelle herself that she could make her father's company billions of dollars, but instead is following her Buddhist faith and own moral code to better the world by becoming a superhero.
Insufferable Genius: Rochelle Kwan, thanks to being one of the smartest people, teenager, adult, or alien, comes off as one of these. It takes meeting Mindmistress' alter ego Lorelai to get her a taste of humble pie.
No Social Skills: Part of her cadet training is merely getting her to relate to her peers and not isolate herself.
The Sleepless: She meditates instead of sleeping to keep her mind from crashing.
A Touch Telepathy cadet, his powers can show psychic memory holograms of whatever he touches. He's one of the stranger cadets.
Covert Pervert: He's shown to steal underwear from the girls in his dorm and hold it as a way to telepathically masturbate.
Loners Are Freaks: Among the cadets, he's shown to have almost no friends or any meaningful relationships.
Power Incontinence: His powers are shown to cause him immense pain when he uses them. He's worse off than even Billy is, shown to be unable to even touch a girl. In the alternate universe, he was tutored by Gola Beh to eventually overcome this mental block.
A cadet with jumping powers, he's very serious-minded.
"Stop Having Fun" Guys: He's the cadet who immediately takes failing a mission harder than anyone else, blaming it on a lack of control from other cadets and their powers. He's also one of the few to never shown use his powers frivolously.
Your Worst Nightmare: His is represented by the word "Stuck", representing another cadet who has fears relating to his powers.
Yin-Yang Bomb: Not his power set by himself. But when he and Siono combined their powers during a training exercise, his mass was able to lightened to the point where he could make extreme jumps that would otherwise not have been possible.
A cadet who has control over his own density, allowing him to become a cloud of living tissue and gas or become super-dense like a small tower of living concrete. Since he has no control over his clothes whenever he transforms, he becomes naked. This has led him to become a joke among the other cadets.
Naked on Arrival: The first significant bit of interaction he has involves him being forced to lose all his clothes.
Took a Level in Badass: Manages to save Maya's life by learning what happens when electricity is conducted through a cloud of living tissue and also finally goes solid for the first time to break a villain's hand in the same arc.
A quiet Forn demon, at first Jenna disapproves of Kaycee being a cadet, feeling she only coasts to victory on the hard work of others. Later on, she warms up to her after Kaycee takes her to Alexis' gravesite. She reveals her own older sisters were killed by religious fanatics and asks to be Kaycee's sister instead.
Dark Is Not Evil: She looks like a stereotypical devil-style demon, but she's really just a teenage girl underneath the horns and tail.
A demi-goddess warrior from the realm Arkan, she's got a wicked temper that often manifests in forms of threats both verbal and physical towards her fellow cadets. She's got a slight rivalry with Charisma, mainly due to their similar powers.
Cowardly Lion: Her greatest nightmare is shown to be the fear she showed when facing a horrible monster during a ritual in her home realm.
Rapunzel Hair: Her people consider their hair to be sacred and never cut any of it....including their armpit hair. That isn't really her true hair in the pic on the main page. Word of God is that she braids her hair many times, folds it up, and wraps green bits of cloth around it to make it that short.
A Russian from their colony on Mars, he can shoot plasma bolts. He and Joe get taken down by Kaycee and Fatima in their training exercise.
Your Worst Nightmare: She confides in Freya that she feels ugly, due to having to wear an oxygen mask all the time, and even needing a fireproof bed. This comes out in Lock(e)down as her worst fear.
A cocky, stuffy French cadet who can fly. He's only been shown properly once in a side-strip with Montana-Rose.
Demoted to Extra: Originally, he was supposed to have a "bit" with Montana-Rose where she would flirt with him continuously and he would disdain her advances. This fell by the wayside and he's never gotten any real characterization since.
Flying Brick: Subverted. He's only got the power to fly and in their first year, doesn't even possess the muscle mass to carry another person with him.
French Jerk: In his brief appearance, he's shown to be more concerned with how his ego will be bruised than working together with his teammate to complete their mission.
Ambiguous Gender: Due to his ambiguous sounding name, lack of facial features due to his opaque bio-suit, and six breasts, many readers thought he was a she. This got Lampshaded in the comic proper when Charisma, whom after spending living quarters with chiq for a year and a half, is corrected by Billy for not knowing his gender.
Gender-Blender Name: Despite the female-sounding pronunciation of "Chick", he is, in fact, biologically male.
Genre Savvy: Billy tries to smash his bio-suit during a training exercise, since the gravity of Earth is too dangerous for him to spend any period of time in. Too bad he stole Billy's invincibility along with all his other power set.
Raised by Wolves: Word of God says he was raised on Earth (or rather, hatched on Earth) by humans. His powers are unique even among his own people.
Though not much has been shown of Hugh, judging from the expression on his face when his team fails a mission and what Olga can read off of him, he's been having some tough times romantically.
Out of Focus: Along with Jesus and Fabian, he's never directly spoken in the proper comic.
Your Worst Nightmare: His is represented by the word "Broken", possibly referring to his recent break-up.
Not much is known about this cadet. What Olga reads off of him on the plane shows he's thinking of quitting Magellan.
Out of Focus: Along with Hugh and Fabian, he's never spoken in the comic, let along received any meaningful characterization.
The group of cadets behind the class of 2014, this group focuses mainly on the cadets Brelvis Lonsdog and Olga Beh. The rest were introduced through the humorous side segments known as Olga and Brelvis.
The secondary protagonist, Brelvis is an amalgamation of Kaycee's childhood friend Brian Lonsdale and his pet dog Elvis, a result of a botched effort to give himself super powers.
Big Damn Heroes: How he gets the attention of Magellan is by pulling this to save Go!Anna.
Calling the Old Man Out: Gets to do this after he learns his father tried to duplicate the creation of Brelvis, only with innocent people and alien species.
Deuteragonist: His personal story arc is mostly separate from Kaycee's at first, but it eventually leads to him planning to enroll in Magellan alongside her.
Fusion Dance: Brian's original plan to merge with Elvis. It didn't quite work out as planned.
Your Worst Nightmare: A humorous one in comparison to other cadets, Brelvis is merely afraid neither of them is getting to be the dominate personality enough.
A new cadet who is the grand-niece of the deceased Magellan Council member Gola Beh. She's inherited her aunt's telepathic abilities. In reality, "Olga" is really a de-aged Gola, who is missing a large portion of her memories. She's decided to become a cadet and train to be a superhero again. She often finds it difficult to relate to her peers, being a thirty-four year old from the seventies stuck in a fifteen-year old body.
A Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Read: Being unused to her powers, being surrounded by teenagers who think a lot mostly of sex is not a fun experience. When she tries to read the mind of an old man that knew her before, she sees way more than she wants to involving their sexual relationship. Hilarity Ensues. So does Squick.
Outdated Outfit: Her clothes, including her superhero outfit, resemble those of the 70s more than present day. Justified in that she's mentally from that era.
An Italian cadet who has control over the elements. specifically over light emission.
Jerkass Has a Point: She may be very blunt and angry when talking to Olga, but she gives her a much-needed wake-up call regarding how Olga's reading the minds of everyone around her and receiving special treatment.
A Kenyan cadet who can split into multiple versions of himself.
Power Incontinence: He can't do the full-blown lantern yet, only a small one around his head.
There's fourteen other freshman who make a cameo appearance in Olga and Brelvis, though they don't get any lines or character development.
Magellan Cadets: Class of 2013
Ascended Extra: Originally just seen running away during a crowd scene, fans were so eager to know more about the centuaress that xmung included her during a meeting of the "Understanding Terran Culture Support Group."
Magellan Cadets: Class of 2012
V'ries bol-lob Sier'v
Expy: Though possibly not intentional, being an arrogant speedster with white hair makes him strongly resemble Quicksilver.
Fetish Fuel: She talks about having to practice turning invisible naked around Joe, who has a huge crush on her.
Freya Foster (Vybe)
She's the faculty head for Psychology, a reserve member of Force Magellan, and works as the student counselor. Her powers allow her to sense and control emotions, something she calls a 'vybe'. She and Tom are in a relationship.
Meaningful Name: Freya is the Norse goddess of motherhood and love, a fitting first name for someone who works with and essentially mothers a bunch of teenagers. Her last name Foster attests to the fact that she's 'fostering' them, while none are truly her own children.
What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: Averted hard. While at first all she does is passively use her powers to stop fights and sense what's going on around her, when a brainwashed Tom comes after her, she unleashes her full powers on him. It's not a pretty sight and nearly fries his brain.
Expy: Of the droning Professor Binns from Harry Potter.
Lord Psiot VIII (Infinite8)
A mystical magician from Latvia, he's taciturn and a little strange in his ways. When faced with the presence causing all the troubles in Lock(e)down, he recognizes it, but keeps it to himself. The only one he informs are the students who caused the mess in the first place.
Retired Badass: A former superhero, she retired after a battle with Evil Weevil.
Mary Gemmas (Glamour; ret.)
My Greatest Failure: Miasma exploits the secret guilt she carried over Magellan's death to send her into an illusion where she got to rescue him.
Ken Spence (Nitro-Man; ret.)
Formerly the superhero Nitro-Man, Ken now is part of the Magellan Council and part-time drill sergeant for the cadets. He and Gola go way back, having teamed up on their mission together when they were in their early twenties.
Drill Sergeant Nasty: He's mean enough to get even the whiny Charisma to shut up and makes Sioni carry Maya (pre-weight loss) all the way to their destination.
Handicapped Badass: Lost both his legs in his last mission as Nitro-Man. He uses a hover-chair to get around, but this doesn't stop him from being the first one to want to attack the dragons that are plaguing Magellan.
I Work Alone: His initial stance on teaming up with the rest of the IJF. However, readers know how that worked out.
My Greatest Failure: Subconsciously, he still blames himself for Gola losing her eyesight and then later on her memories.
Retired Badass: He is STILL the goddamn Nitro-Man and don't you forget it.
A telepath formerly of the IJF, at the beginning of the story, she's supposedly on sabbatical. Not all is as it seems, as she's still on the island, and possibly working for the bad guys.
Taking the Bullet: She pushed Ken out of the way on their first mission when Vlax fired a psychic blast at him. It resulted in her losing her eyesight.
Karma Joffe (Premonitia; ret.)
A philanthropic former superhero, she joins the Magellan Council at the beginning of the story to replace Gola Beh, who is on sabbatical. She has a grudge against Kaycee Jones. In reality, Karma was killed by DragonKlaw and Miasma, with her identity stolen by the latter. To see all tropes relating to her real identity, look under Villains on Miasma.
Bad Future: She seeks to prevent these from happening with her premonitions.
Uncle Pennybags: She uses her powers to play the stock market and give away millions of dollars to help people all over the world.
Alfred Burfett (Dr Logarythm; ret.)

Yuri Mantovic (Green Pope; ret.)
Out of Focus: Not much is known or has been done in-story with Mantovic.
Dr Alonzo Zee (Dr Zee; ret.)
Janje Ruff (Cyberia; ret.)
Kendra Dern (Vertigo)
Vlad Epoch (Epoch)
Vlad Epoch is a Flying Brick superhero, one of the most well-known in the world. That's saying something considering how many are running around this version of Earth. He's the father of Charisma, who has him wrapped around her finger.
To see the current identities and tropes associated with the later versions of most of the IJF, look under Magellan Council. Only those who never appeared later in the storyline will be detailed here.
Magnus Magellan (Magellan)
Yin Zang (Chinese Lantern 2)
The first generation of superheroes, they worked separately, but came together in WWII to fight the Nazis. More information about them can be found here.
Lance Magellan (Victory-Man)
A police-officer who gained powers when an alien meteor crashed through his house. Fearing rejection when he found out he had superpowers, he donned a costume and became the world's first superhero. He was active from 1930-1959, when his nemesis the Evil Weevil was able to permanently nullify his powers. He married Lady Lariat in 1936 and they had a son, Magnus Magellan, in 1942. He was killed in a car crash in 1962 at age 52.
Career-Ending Injury: He had been shot in the knee in the line of duty and was looking at working behind a desk for the rest of his life when he gained his powers.
Never Found the Body: Though he never officially retired or was killed in the line of duty, he's most likely died of old age by the time the main story begins.
Helga Lasser (Lady Lariat)
A circus star inspired by stories of Victory-Man, she ran into him after busting up a crime. They fought in the Victorious together and eventually married. Her career lasted from 1932-1942. When she had their son Magnus, she effectively retired from crime-fighting to raise her family. She died in a car crash in 1962 at age 51.
Absolute Cleavage: Already having an ample bosom, she fought crime in a slinky tube top.
Americans Are Cowboys: What her costume was invoking. Justified, since she started out as a circus performer.
Punny Name: Her last name, Lasser, sounds a lot like lasso.
Sally Young (Gizmo Girl/Gizmo Woman)
The youngest member of the Victorious at age 15, she invented gizmos such as an explosive yo-yo and a personal anti-gravity device. Not much of a fighter and never taken too seriously by her enemies, she retired at age 28 to raise her twin daughters, whom she claimed were fathered by Victory-Man. She published her autobiography in 1962.The first half of her career lasted from 1942-1955. The second short-lived attempt as Gizmo Woman lasted from 1969-1972. Currently, at age 83, she makes a living out waring the costume to charity events and conventions.
Expy: Her story reads like any number of goofy Golden-Age superheroes who have been tried to be revamped into something less silly.
Cloud Cuckoolander: Claimed to have invented her gadgets by channeling the brain of a futuristic inventor from an alternate Earth. Um...
Used to Be a Sweet Kid: She started off as a goofy superhero. Later on in life, she battled depression and an addiction to painkillers.
Jake Spanner (The Streaker)
A nude superhero with the powers of Super Speed. He was a biochemist who wanted to find the secret to invisibility and instead gained a different superpower. He was and still holds the record for being the fastest man alive, even among modern-day speedsters. His career lasted from 1938-1951, until his disappearance at age 39.
Fascinated by the idea of the Red Light, which could only be harnessed by the greatest practictioners of the Golden Lotus martial art, he trained for many years before accomplishing his goal. One of the longest serving superheroes, his career lasted from 1942-1988. Currently, he's 95, though quite frail and not completely mentally stable.
Expy: Of most token "ethnic characters" that Golden-Age comics had.
Shrug of God: Crowley has stated that most of the information about Xuan has been privately retconned into two different characters, as he felt one man having a career that long and serving on two teams was unrealistic. Until officially announced in the comics, both characters are being put on the character page.
Traumatic Superpower Awakening: His powers activated when he and many of his townsfolk were trapped under a landslide. He used his powers to save them all.
A group of heroes from the alternate future. They are made up of present-day cadets and are all that is left of that world's group of heroes. The rest were killed in an explosion trying to stop Miasma and DragonKlaw. Once they apprehend Miasma, they go home, but not before meeting with their present-day selves to give them some much needed advice. All other spoilers about the team will be unmarked.
A future version of the cadet Kaycee Jones, she eventually executed Alan Brunton, the man who had previously kidnapped her and killed her older sister, after he kidnapped and killed her mother. Force Magellan kicked her out of the organization. She continued to work alone until a villain named Boilerplate burned her face severely. Rochelle developed a life-support system in her mask so she could continue working as a superhero.
A future version of the cadet Montana-Rose Touchwood.
A future version of the cadet Mudge Wilson.
A future version of Brelvis.
Butterfly of Doom: This version of Brelvis was trained by Wombat-Man on the streets of Sydney instead of being trained as a Magellan cadet. He also doesn't meet Kaycee again until they are both adults.
Several other superheroes are mentioned, including future versions of Jemima Castlemaine (Gothika), Rochelle Kwan, and Charisma Epoch.
Heel-Face Turn: Two of the rudest and most unlikable cadets, Rochelle and Charisma, eventually became trusted, valuable allies of Magellan.
Important Haircut: Charisma underwent one gaining a short, pixie haircut, around the same time she and Kaycee became friends.
Killed Off for Real: Most of the superheroes of their world, including Charisma, Rochelle, Gifford, Jemima, V'ries, and Janice.
Reed Richards Is Useless: Averted. Rochelle invented many useful devices, including the life-support in Maverick's mask, the opaque visor Speedlines uses, and the devices the team uses to cancel out Miasma's illusions.
A mysterious warlock who plans to use a set of Mac Guffins to open a portal to a demon planet.
Bigger Bad: While other villains are more active (he's only directly appeared once), he's the greatest threat by far. The entire first story arc was just cleaning up the spillover from the failed efforts of his alternate timeline counterpart.
An alternate timeline version of the student Chang Chong, he turned to villainy after getting expelled from Magellan. Eventually, he and Miasma attempted to ascend to a higher plane in a plan that almost destroyed both the alternate and original Earths.
Story Breaker Power: A villainous example, Miasma can use her powers of illusion-casting on anyone to escape almost any situation. Not even telepaths have minds strong enough to keep her powers at bay. As it turns out, the only person she doesn't have a defense against is herself. Younger Maya claims she's the easiest mind-mojo she's ever done.
Older than They Look: He fought the original Victory-Man in the 30s, which means he has to be pushing one-hundred years old. Yet he's still going strong and is a frequent foe of Force Magellan.
Your Worst Nightmare: His thought balloon reads "Human", which can be taken as him either being horrified at what he's become or horrified at the thought of returning to such a weak, pathetic human state of being.
Evil Clown: Always shown wearing a creepy clown mask.
Red Path Ninjas
Master Assassin (Wolfgang Kruger)
The Baxter Gang
Prof. George Lonsdale
A Mad Scientist who also happens to be Brelvis' father. He experimented on people and turned them into the Hybrids. When one of them tries to kill him, it's revealed he experimented on himself too. The mutation consumes him until all that is left is a barely-sentient sponge.
I Have No Son: He declares Brelvis to be nothing more than a freak of nature to him.
Your Worst Nightmare: Most disturbing of all the villains, he doesn't have a worst fear, because there's nothing left in his mind that's human enough to be afraid.
Created by Prof. Lonsdale, they were once ordinary people before being experimented on, creating half-human, half-animal monsters.
A man who had his mind embedded into a stable energy pattern. He outlived everything, including the end of his universe, leaving him alone in the dark for countless centuries. He tried to possess Epoch, but was foiled by Mindmistress and Rochelle.
A woman in the 1500s who unleashed a genie that granted her wishes in a sideways fashion.
Be Careful What You Wish For: Her first wish of "wanting to be younger" caused her to continuously age backwards. Her second wish allowed her to control the condition, but only at the cost of draining years off from others, erasing their memories in the process. The third wish of "wanting to be free" killed her.
An old supervillainess from the 50s, she was responsible for permanently blinding Gola Beh. She was imprisoned on Locke Island and served out fifty-two life sentences. In the present day, she's an old woman dying of cancer.
Cooland Unusual Punishment: For someone who permanently shattered the minds of over fifty-two people, dying of cancer is a fitting end.
Not So Harmless: After whatever is affecting Locke Island gets done with her, she's even more powerful than ever before.
Annie Summers (Go!Anna)
A superhero who saved a young Kaycee Jones from Al Brunton, subsequently becoming her idol. She was dating Wombat-Man until Brelvis spilled the beans about Luke and Captain Victoria cheating behind her back. Since then, she's been training Brelvis to become a cadet, though she worries she may have lost sight of how to still be an active superhero. In the alternate future, Epoch never saved the plane she was on, resulting in her death.
A superhero who was expelled from Magellan before he could complete his six years, Luke has been on the sidelines after a severe injury. His relationship with Annie became strained and then broke once he cheated on her. They later made up to the point of becoming friends. In the alternate universe, he became so shocked upon Annie's death that he never cheated with Captain Victoria. Instead, he took a young Brelvis in and trained him to become Mongrel.
The Atoner: Implied to be his role in the alternate timeline as penance for never repairing his relationship with Annie before she died.
Everyone Went to School Together: She, Annie, and Freya all went to the same school. Justified, as there's only one school for powered individuals, regardless of whether or not they're going into superheroics.
