Cyber Boy was born in the final years of The Civil War of his Home Satelite. His two fathers were Coldboot and Shop, a Cybernite Lawman and Medic respectively, while his mother was eMail, a Cybernite Post Officer.When Viral came looking for any and all survivors of the Cybernite Kingdom, eMail used her teleport powers to send Cyber Boy, her “little pixel”, to a location that was far away, and rich in data and signals, that would feed him and mask his scent, ensuring Viral would never find him.Cyber Boy landed on planet earth in London in 1991, and was unable to find a sufficiently advanced system to function in. So he merged with a basic computer model belonging to Charlie Scrap, the first Data Boy. Years later in 2002, the now retired Scrap sold his old computer in a church jumble sale, the machine being bought by teenage genius Lee Yamashita. Yamashita managed to connect his iPhone to the computer, and the phone’s advanced system was good enough to allow Cyber Boy to function. The Cybernite infant managed to travel from the computer to the phone, and managed to materialize.
Tropes Relating to Cyber Boy
- Aliens Speaking English: He learned English from listing to episodes of The Archers, resulting in a really thick Brummie Accent.
- All-Loving Hero: For all his flaws, he's still very much this.
- Always Someone Better: He is this to Virus, his Evil Twin. He interests Lord Game, manages to beat Virus in every confrontation, and eventually succeeded Lord Game as ruler of all Cybernites
- An Ice Person: Like one of his fathers Coldboot, he can fire a freeze lock blast from his tail.
- Battle Couple: With Big Money.
- Beast and Beauty: The Beast to Cleo's Beauty.
- Beehive Barrier: His force-field is this.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Boy, they get a lot of mileage out this one. He only has two organs, has three parents, has a gender but apparently not a sex, has retractable holographic wings, which don't actually facilitate his flight, and is apparently made entirely out of light.
- Bizarre Alien Senses: Cyber Boy only has four, Sight, Hearing, Limited Touch, and Smission
- Cannot Spit It Out: Nurtured a very large crush on Bubble Girl for a very long time. When he finally did tell her she shot him down, unable to get passed his alien appearance.
- Combat Pragmatist: If he can do something to hurt you, he'll do it. His fighting style mostly consists of Fake Outs, Groind Attacks, Biting, ruthlessly exploiting any weak spot he finds, and when you're down, he will kick and beat you until he is SURE you can't get back up for a while.
- Dreaming of Things to Come: On a very vague sense, Cyber Boy is occasionally visited by "an angel" who may or may not be his mother, who warns of him of approaching dangers.
- Eleventh Hour Superpower: After his Plot-Relevant Age-Up in 'Invasion', he gained Aerokinesis and 360' Vision.
- Eye Beams: He can fire Cyber Shocks from his eyes.
- Fashionable Asymmetry: Subtle, but his left hand and forearm is slightly larger and more developed than his right.
- Gemstone Assault: After eating actual matter, he can create and control crystals, usually firing them from his tail and mouth, but he can also create and levitate massive crystal glaciers. This later becomes his Signature Move.
- It should be noted that he is the only Cybernite to realise they can do this.
- Good Wings, Evil Wings: Played straight by Human Standards. He has 7 angels wings, fairly average for his species.
- When he becomes a royal Cybernite, His Angel Wings become Dragonfly Wings, noting him as exceptional.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Lee Yamashita. The two outright consider eachother brothers.
- Insectoid Aliens: He's often referred to as a giant blue cockroach, but in actuality he's more like an anthropomorphic ant.
- Intangible Man: He can switch to "soft light" to phase through objects and such.
- Kid Hero: Although 6ft. 5, and with an insanely deep voice, Cyber Boy is only eight years old in earth terms. In Cybernite terms, he's still only a "Pixel"
- Make Me Wanna Shout: His sonic scream, which can shatter rock and toss people about.
- Never Gets Drunk: Due to his alien biology, Alcohol has almost no effect on him. However, his diamonds, which he creates when he ingests matter, can and do get drunk when created from alcohol.
- Plot-Relevant Age-Up: when he became a Royal Cybernite, he became roughly twenty in Cybernite terms.
- Power Glows: He glows in the dark.
- Pretty Fly For A Glowing Blue Alien: A core personality trait of his that he adopted from Earth culture is that he's such a wigger.
- This, combined with his Birmingham Accent, is just hilarious.
- Sealed Good in a Can: Was sealed inside an old PC since the eighties, and was released in 2012.
- Shock and Awe: His "Cyber Shocks" are basically beams of lightning.
- Teleporters and Transporters: He can "email" himself to different computer hubs.
- Weaksauce Weakness: He only has a finite amount of charge on him, once he runs out without recharging, he vanishes back to wherever he's downloaded to until he can recharge.
- It's probably not a good idea to let him near magnets either.
- The West Midlands: As mentioned above, he has a really thick Brummie Accent.
- Would Hit a Girl: Justified, however, in Cyber Boy coming from a race without Sexes, and initially was unsure of what a female was even supposed to be. However, nowadays he just sees "human", regardless of age, sex or ethnicity, and acts to whatever extend he feels justified, given their crime.
AKA: Data Boy II
Powers: NoneLee Yamashita was a teenaged genius who was moved from Kyoto to Essex by his family. Lee was the one who bought Old PC at a church rummage sale, and activated him. Since then the two have been inseparable, and Lee was the one who became Data Boy, sidekick to Cyber Boy.
Tropes Relating to Data Boy II
- Asian and Nerdy: Of a very Adorkable variety.
- Arch-Enemy: Although he's locked horns with more than a few Supervillains, Hot Stuff in particular seems to have it in for him.
- Badass Normal: Just because he lacks superpowers, skill, or any considerable fighting skill, doesn't mean he's not this. In fact, taking on a horde of MeatHeads with only a cannon you made out of bits and pieces you found lying around…without even being sure it would work has got to be pretty badass.
- Even the Guys Want Him: Princess Pink (the transvestite superhero), admits he's attracted to him.
- Hypercompetent Sidekick: To Cyber Boy, he's much more knowledgable
- I Just Want to Have Friends: He was very lonely guy before he met Cyber Boy.
- Legacy Character: The 2nd to wear the mantle of Data Boy, but the 1st to have no powers and be Cyber Boy's Sidekick.
- Teen Genius: He's a virtual genius in mathematics, engineering, and chemistry, with a photographic memory and advanced reasoning skills.
- Token Human: The first memorable human in the cast.
- Shapeshifter Weapon: The Crush Glove, perhaps the only invention that shows up consistently. Wearing it allows him to change his arms and legs into those of aliens and animals…and car parts.
- The Spark of Genius: Implied to be the reason why is inventions can't be replicated.
- Of Course, perhaps Dr. Tarantula might not want to admit Lee is just smarter than him.
AKA: Hypno Man
Powers: HypnosisFelix was the grandson of Manfred "The Goon" Goon, a pugilist crime lord in the eighties. Felix was a bratty, destructive teenage hellion that terrorised his parents and neighbourhood. Until he was kidnapped by the crime lord Organ Grinder, had his eyes harvested and turned into a cyborg slave.On his first job for Organ Grinder, he was attacked by Police Brutality, busting the chip in his head that made him a slave. With his identity back, he went on a rampage against Organ Grinder's organisation, beating on any criminal he could find in the process.
Tropes Relating to Hypno Man
- And I Must Scream: Hypno Man's will often use his abilities to really, really screw over his victims. This can range from commanding them to stop breathing or telling an informant to say 'pterodactyl' in place of every other word when he's not talking to him.
- Not to mention Hypno Man's own situation. Kidnapped by a crime boss to have your organs harvested, forcibly turned into a cyborg, and then having your identity stripped away. Felix hints he was conscious during that period as well.
- By that logic, all of the Chain Gang is in that boat. Loads of Teenage Boys and Girls, all with various degrees of robotisization. Theres one girl with bits of her brain and her stomach missing!
- Anime Hair: Parodying the trope, he has three great, giant prongs of hair stick out nearly twice the length of his head.
- Anti-Hero: Of the 'Unscrupulous' type. He's vicious, socially maladjusted, willing to do anything to keep criminals off the street. He'll ruin peoples lives if they break laws or antagonise other people, and even when surrounded by allies, he's thinking of ways to take them down if they cross him.
- His Story Arc both Deconstructs and Reconstructs the trope over it's course, as his unwillingness to reconnect with the world around him and his single mixed vendetta at Organ Grinder has shown to be detrimental to his health. Also, his homelessness and survival on the street has left him a Fish out of Water in a normal, non-superhero setting.
- Arch-Enemy: Above all else, he has it in for Organ Grinder.
- Badass: Definitely
- Badass Beard: Rocks a frankly magnificent Lincoln Beard.
- Bash Brothers: With Cyber Boy and Mr. Pipes.
- Big Brother Instinct: To Cyber Boy and Lee Yamashita. He knows Cyber Boy can handle himself in a fight, but he takes lengths to stop Cyber Boy making a fool of himself in public, and god help you if you threaten Lee in front of him.
- In 'Invasion', he outright calls Cyber Boy is Little Brother.
- Big Damn Kiss: With Bubble Girl after they become an Official Couple at the end of 'Those Are My Eyes'. Also at the end of 'Invasion'.
- Brooding Boy, Gentle Girl: The Brooding Boy to Bubble Girl's Gentle Girl.
- Hypnotic Eyes: He has robotic eyes that let him Hypnotise people.
- Killer Yo-Yo: Amusingly, its an Old Shame of his, that he used to use one when he first became a Superhero.
- Megaton Punch: his Grandfather's Forbidden Technique. Initally thought he and his father didn't inherit it, but during the zenith of 'Those Are My Eyes', it became an Mid-Season Upgrade.
- Morality Pet: Titanium serves as this to him, as it's their friendship and support that stop him from becoming a monster.
AKA: Bubble Girl
Powers: ChemokinesisWhen she was young, Viola ate blackberries off of a bush that belongs to a crazy farmer near her home town. After she fell violently ill, the town superhuman found out that the farmer in question was an alien, growing alien parasites called Zlugulas in the form of blackberries. The Zlugula matured and fused to Viola's stomach, the two forming a symbiotic relationship.The Zlugula feeds on Viola's calories, and in return generates a "Super Gas", that can be expelled as any gas Viola desires.

- Chemistry Can Do Anything: In any offensive, defensive, or stealth situation, she has a chemical that suits the purpose.
- Fartillery: If farting tear gas into enemy faces counts, then yes.
- Gasshole: Her only methods of expelling the gas are Belching, Farting, Blowing or Sneezing them out. It's most commonly the first 2.
- Hearing Voices: Apparently the Zlugula talks to her telepathically. We never hear what it says, but from her comments, they have a Master/Slave type deal.
- "It told me to dance for it" - Bubble Girl
- Hollywood Acid: She can belch out an acidic gas.
- Love Is in the Air / Hate Plague: She can create pheromones for all sorts of effects.
- Master Poisoner: She create choke people with clouds of toxic gas.

AKA: Mr. Pipes
Powers: Pipe Control
AKA: Big Money
Powers: Bio-Editing, Lots of Cash
Tropes Relating to Big Money
- Balloon Belly: Her Signature Attack!, she uses her power to expand her stomach rapidly to act as a crushing attack.
- Big Beautiful Woman: Her battle form, massively muscular arms, hugely fat stomach, and retaining her angelic face, which she uses to "crack bad-guy heads". Her real form is actually very waif-like.
- Birds of a Feather: With Cyber Boy, both have no immediate family, feel it's their only calling in life to be a Superhero, both into Street Culture, and are both really, really weird. It comes as no surprise to anyone when it's revealed they like each other..
- Boldly Coming: Let's see, there's her outspoken attraction to Trojan, a Cybernite, Meathead Dave, Roda Kyln'r, a Grotian and her loving boyfriend, Cyber Boy.
- Crimefighting with Cash: A rare super powered example. She bankrolls Titanium, she buys the crew gadgetry, vehicles, and hideouts, and once stopped a weapons manufacturing ring by simply buying out a few companies and cutting off the production flow. She also pays for all the property damage.
- Fiction 500: She apparently owns a massive chain of companies, which she inherited when she was eleven. She has more money than some third world countries, and owns or has a stake in just about every major enterprise in London and Essex.
- No Sell: She's completely immune to viruses and diseases, as well as any outside attempt to alter her biometrics.
- Sassy Black Woman
- Super Intelligence: A very passive Required Secondary Power. She has a very advanced knowledge of the human body and how it works.
- Voluntary Shapeshifting: A Limited version. She controls every cell in her body, but only has enough mastery to control her body frame, muscularity, fat-deposits, pigmentation and hair. Bone structure is an awful lot more difficult for her, and changing her gender is almost too hard to accomplish.
- She has THE POTENTIAL to be a very powerful shapeshifter, but to pull it off she'd need to have a working knowledge of how each cell in whatever she's transforming into is put together.
- The Xenophile: She's been shown several times to relate to aliens moreso than Human Beings. Since she's the only Earth-Native member of Titanium who was born with her abilities, she may feel a little isolated because of them.

Rockwell is largely interested in his fame and opportunity to make money of his Super Heroics, but often shows a desire to help people, or at least help Thomas. Rockwell lacks Thomas's healing ability, but compensates by being virtually indestructible.
