The Vigilantes are the main protagonists of Red Lightning. They are a few people who were not naturally inclined to rampage after gaining there powers. Led by Double-D, they make it a point to try to stop the various Super-Psychos from destroying their town.
Edd "Double-D" Waters
Power: Superhuman SpeedDouble-D was given superhuman speed, stamina and reflexes by The Storm, and is part of the minority left stable by it. Double-D has a strong morale fiber, which drives him to try and protect Peach Creek. Double-D is a fast healer, which is largely useful because he often takes the most damage in fights. Double-D tries the hardest to balance his normal life with his super hero career as Flashpoint, because his girlfriend Marie is often annoyed by his repeated absences. His powers came from his desire to move faster, to avoid the storm.
Power: Superhuman Strength, Metallic SkinEddy was given the ability to turn into a larger, stronger, metallic version of himself, a form he calls Quarterback. Eddy 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 Double-D. Eddy lacks Double-D's healing ability, but compensates by being virtually indestructible. Eddy finds it easy than Double-D to balance between his hero and normal life, but mainly because the only people he really interacts with are involved in it. His powers came from his life of desiring pieces of metal.
Finley "Finn" Trevor
Power: Telepathy, TelekinesisFinn is a newcomer to the Cul-De-Sac. Finn was also affected by the Storm, being stuck by two lightning bolts, giving him both Telepathy and Telekinesis. Finn also has a little sister, Sadie, who is a Super-Psycho. Finn helps Double-D and Eddy with fighting Super-Psychos, but does not have a super-persona, until Ed made him one on the internet, PixelFace. He's powers come from his desire to know what others think of him, and his desire for more control over things.
The Vigilantes have accumulated a generous gallery of friends who, while not part of the core team, often help out when need be. Many were introduced in season 2.

Ed films his friends exploits and uploads them under his YouRoll username iJoker!.
Power: NoneMarie Kanker is Double-D's girlfriend. She is described as having put on weight, as Double-D and Eddy's heightened metabolisms make them eat more, so Marie has gained a few pounds because of this.
