The duo as Atomic Puppet
When AP and Joey power up, they become Atomic Puppet, Mega City’s newest hero! They possess the exact same superpowers that Captain Atomic had: supersonic flight, earthshaking strength, and lightning fast speed. Unfortunately, they've also inherited all of Captain Atomic’s enemies!

See their video profile here.


  • Action Duo: As the main superheroes of the show, all the fighting they do is a team effort.
  • Badass Cape: Joey's yellow one and AP's red one.
  • Bash Brothers: Always fighting bad guys, saving the city, and on the search for villains as a team.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Joey and AP, respectively.
  • Brains and Brawn: Who is who depends on the situation, but Joey typically acts as the brains while AP is the brawn.
  • Calling Your Attacks: "ATOMIC PUNCH!!", "ATOMIC WINDMILL!!", "ATOMIC KICK!!", "ATOMIC...",well, you get the idea.
  • Catchphrase:
    • Whenever they transform:
    "It's Atomic Time!"
    • Whenever they defeat the threat of the episode:
    "Victory pose!"
  • Chest Insignia: AP has one all the time, but Joey gains one when he transforms.
  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: If there's a problem nearby, they will immediately head to help. Though AP might need some convincing first, particularly if it involves Mookie.
  • Fusion Dance: It involves placing AP on Joey's hand. This results in both of them gaining outfits resembling Captain Atomic's outfit, alongside superpowers and, in AP's case, a more humanoid form.
  • Henshin Hero: Neither of them have superpowers until they perform their Fusion Dance, also gaining their costume in the process.
  • Let's Get Dangerous! / Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: They may be some dorky kid and his egotistical talking sock puppet, but make no mistake — when the bad guys are out and about, it's atomic time.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: An ordinary kid and a superhero-turned-sock puppet.
  • Odd Friendship: A boy is friends with a hand puppet who used to be a superhero. Yep, they qualify.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Their blue costume, inherited from Captain Atomic.
  • Rude Hero, Nice Sidekick: AP is the rude hero (or at least extremely smug) and Joey is his much nicer sidekick.
  • Victory Pose: The duo performs this whenever they win a battle.

     Joseph "Joey" Felt 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/joey_7.png
Voiced by: Eric Bauza
Through all the years Joey spent with his nose buried in comics, never in his wildest dreams did he think one day he'd actually get to be a superhero! But when his idol Captain Atomic is transformed into a puppet, Joey discovers he can reactivate the puppet's superpowers by placing him on his fist. Together, Joey and AP form Mega City's new crimefighting duo Atomic Puppet, and Joey proves to his idol that whenever villainy rears its ugly head, he can count on him to be more than just a helping hand.

See their video profile here.


  • Adorkable: Especially when it comes to anything related to superheroes, and he can get really fangirlish. Some of the faces he makes are priceless.
  • Anime Hair: Has a pretty large spiky hairdo.
  • Ascended Fanboy: Is Captain Atomic's biggest fan, and now he not only lives with him, but he gets to fight with him too.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He's a pretty friendly kid and generally willing to help others when necessary, but when the bad guys threaten those he cares about, they can expect to have their asses handed in hard.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Towards his sister Abbie on multiple occasions.
  • Consulting Mister Puppet: Joey typically makes sure to bring AP along whenever he goes out. It's more justified than most examples, since otherwise he can't turn into a superhero to save the day.
  • Distressed Dude: In several episodes, like "Erlenmeyer's Revenge" and "Private Proton". AP is usually forced to team up with Pauline to save the day.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: His mother calls him "Jo-Jo".
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Whenever he puts AP on his hand.
  • Future Badass: In the Bad Future presented in the Christmas Episode, although he gets killed by Professor Tite-Gripp.
    AP: Woah! So much for those "spaghetti arms"!
  • Heroic Host: Acts as one to AP whenever he wears him in his hand.
  • Instant Costume Change: Joey's superhero costume is the result of him putting AP on his hand, so it may be a case of Clothes Make the Superman.
  • It Must Be Mine!: How he feels about his Captain Atomic action figure collection. Once he finds out there's a 133rd action figure, he immediately does everything he can to get it, up to and including fighting Mintenberg's giant boxer robot.
  • Kid Hero: He's 12, and is basically the next Captain Atomic since AP isn't exactly capable without him.
  • Kid Sidekick: What he technically is to AP, although he (correctly) considers himself more of a partner.
  • Meaningful Name: Kid named "Felt" gets a superpowered puppet. What are the odds?
  • Nice Guy: He's a lot friendlier and more polite than AP and also really cares about his friends and family.
  • Noodle People: According to AP anyway, who is bothered by his "spaghetti arms".
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: His name is Joseph, but the only person who ever calls him that regularly is Princess War Tickle.
  • Secret Identity: Joey has to keep it secret from everyone (except Pauline, Mookie, and the other superheroes) that he and his sock puppet are Atomic Puppet.
  • Secret Keeper: Joey keeps the unfortunate event of Captain Atomic's transformation a secret from citizens and villains, and hides the fact that AP can talk and that he and AP are Atomic Puppet.
  • The Southpaw: He manually uses his left hand, though he could also be ambidextrous.
  • The Straight Man: To AP, since Joey serves to deflate AP's ego by being the only way for him to reuse his old superpowers.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: His relationship with Phil has shades of this as Phil thinks that Joey is in danger of going soft from "playing with that stupid sock". This finally changes when he reveals that he is Atomic Puppet in "The Big Shift".
  • Youthful Freckles: A couple, although they're not visible in superhero form.

Voiced by: Eric Bauza
Once Mega City's legendary hero, now just a powerless, living puppet, AP still has all the ego and swagger of Captain Atomic, but is completely dependent on Joey to access his powers. After a lifetime of being able to handle every situation with his brute strength or endless charm, AP now struggles with the idea that he needs Joey's help in order to be the hero the city needs. If AP can figure out a way to swallow his pride long enough, he'll see that Atomic Puppet has a chance to be the greatest superhero Mega City has ever known!

See their video profile here.


  • Action Hero: His typical method of dealing with almost any problem is with a good old beatdown.
  • Affectionate Nickname: AP is intended to be short for Atomic Puppet.
  • Ambiguously Bi: AP has shown interest in women several times, but his friendship with Travis and the Justice Alliance is loaded with Ho Yay.
  • Animate Inanimate Object: Despite now being a sock puppet, Captain Atomic can still talk, walk, blink, and even consume food.
  • Awesome Ego: In-Universe. Captain Atomic is awesome and he'll make sure everyone knows it. And being turned into a puppet had no effect on it.
  • Badass Baritone: Even as a sock puppet, Captain Atomic retains his manly voice.
  • Baleful Polymorph / Puppet Permutation: Thanks to Mookie, although how it was done is unexplained.
  • Blood Knight: Always eager to fight bad guys, both to save the day and because he likes to.
  • Break the Haughty: His transformation into a sock puppet was a big one for him after years of celebrity status among the people of Mega City. He slowly learns to accept his new lot in life over the series.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Captain Atomic may no longer be able to use his superpowers as AP (except when Joey is involved), but that doesn't stop him from being able to stand up against most of his enemies.
    AP: Puppet or not, I still got it!
  • Buttmonkey: Most of the slapstick in the show happens to him since he's a sock puppet.
  • Captain Superhero: Was known as "Captain Atomic" back when he was a human.
  • Companion Cube: Is sorta one to Joey, but also has one himself in the form of Travis, a Ken-like doll owned by Abbie. As he explains, it's because they're both epitomes of masculinity trapped in the bodies of kids' toys.
  • Equippable Ally: Putting him on Joey's hand transforms both of them into superpowered versions of each other.
  • Flying Brick: Which Captain Atomic passed on to Atomic Puppet.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Sure, AP will save you from any threat, but don't expect him to be particularly polite about it.
  • Good Is Not Soft: Except for that one time he got a big dose of fabric softener and became a gentle pacifist.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Annoy him? Have a fun trip to the sun!
  • Hand Puppet: Thanks to Mookie, although as far as everyone else knows, Captain Atomic just "mysteriously vanished".
  • Hurl It into the Sun: His preferred method of dealing with problems.
  • Improvised Parachute: AP is used as one sometimes since he's a sock puppet. Has saved Joey's life on more than one occasion.
  • It's All About Me: A lot. He still admires depictions of himself, even as a puppet.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he is most certainly short-tempered, egotistical, and eager to pick a fight, he also genuinely cares for the noble cause of justice, loves his city and its citizens, and sees Joey as a true partner in crime fighting, rather than just a kid sidekick (though it takes him a while to accept that).
  • Large Ham: A holdover from his Captain Atomic days, as AP is a serious drama queen and just loves to chew the scenery.
    AP: Who needs super gadgets when you've got superpowers?! (strikes a pose)
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: As Captain Atomic. He still has shades of it as a puppet.
  • Life of the Party: Considers himself to be one.
  • Manchild: He may have been protecting Mega City for over 30 years, but he sure doesn't act that way. For example, he tends to get comically overemotional over various things, such as when Joey starts hanging out with Mookie in "Private Proton".
    AP: Don't worry AP, he'll be back. (pauses and starts wailing) Oh, who am I kidding? No, he won't! Just look at me! I was once the world's greatest superhero, and now I'm nothing but a lousy, handsome puppet! (starts crying to himself)
  • The Napoleon: Not as Captain Atomic, but for a little sock puppet, AP sure is feisty, since he's still got the ego of Captain Atomic.
  • Never My Fault: Very prone to this, especially in earlier episodes, as he's too egotistical to ever admit to causing a problem.
  • Pride: Puppet or man, AP sure has an ego.
  • Pungeon Master: Frequently makes a pun after defeating a villain.
  • Smug Super: Even as a puppet, Captain Atomic is very smug to people, and his typical solution to people who annoy him is to throw them into the sun.
  • Was Once a Man: He used to be a human before being transformed into a puppet.

The Rogues Gallery

     Mookie/Sergeant Subatomic 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mookie.png
Spoiler 
Voiced by: Peter Oldring
Captain Atomic’s former sidekick. Bitter and bruised over his failed coup to control Captain Atomic, Mookie is fueled by his lust for heroic stardom. He’s tired of living in another hero’s shadow (not to mention his mom’s basement) and he won’t rest until the citizens of Mega City worship him as their one true hero: Sergeant Subatomic, the Nuclear Boy!

See their video profile here.


  • Bare Your Midriff: His usual outfit, both in superhero costume and out of it.
  • Basement-Dweller: His "secret lair" is his mother's basement (it used to be Captain Atomic's old lair, but he accidentally destroyed it).
  • Berserk Button: Hates being called Mookie. "It's Sergeant Subatomic!"
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Is the reason Captain Atomic became a puppet and seeks to replace Atomic Puppet as Mega City's protector, but at the same time, he's not seen as a villain by most people and is pretty inept for the most part.
  • Bumbling Sidekick: Used to be one for Captain Atomic. Deconstructed, as Captain Atomic's intolerance for Mookie's incompetence and the constant humiliation Mookie experienced made him envious of Captain Atomic's celebrity status, which is why he turned Captain Atomic into AP.
    Captain Atomic (in a flashback): You wanna surprise me? How about you take one step without screwing up?!
    (Mookie walks off hurt and muttering to himself)
    Hero of Holidays Past, Present, and Future (watching the flashback with AP): Oooh, harsh. And you wonder why he turned you into a puppet.
  • Buttmonkey / The Chew Toy: Although treated as Atomic Puppet's rival, he tends to suffer a lot of misfortune, such as having a toilet seat glued to his butt, being used as a human shield, swelling like a balloon from swallowing a power crystal, and being caught naked in front of everyone in Mega City.
  • Create Your Own Villain: Captain Atomic's poor attitude towards Mookie was part of what drove him to try and steal his power in the first place. Later on, the continued rejection and defeats from Mega City's people and Atomic Puppet respectively, turned him into a full-blown evildoer in "The Big Shift".
  • Distressed Dude: Whenever his latest scheme to outdo Atomic Puppet turns against him. "Mookie's Got the Power" is a good example.
  • Driven by Envy: The primary reason why he tried to replace Captain Atomic and continues to try and overthrow Atomic Puppet is because he wants to prove to Mega City that he is actually the greatest hero the city has seen.
  • Engineered Heroics: Many of his schemes tend to revolve around this. Typically, he releases a monster or causes some damage that he pins on a villain before coming in to "rescue" Mega City, and thus become its hero. But due to his bumbling, he usually ends up having to be saved by Atomic Puppet instead.
  • Fallen Hero: A downplayed example, as he's not considered a real villain until "The Big Shift".
  • Fat Bastard: Quite pudgy and extremely egotistical and greedy.
  • Fat Slob: When he's at home. Joey and AP are pretty revolted when they accidentally stumble upon him like that.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He's shown to be capable of building a wide variety of inventions that he uses for his schemes, such as his utility belt and whatever he had used to turn Captain Atomic into AP.
  • Gag Nose: A rotund orangey nose.
  • Glory Hound: He'll stop at nothing to prove to the citizens of Mega City that he's the hero they deserve instead, even if it means turning a superhero into a puppet or creating some villains of his own to defeat.
  • Green-Eyed Monster: His longtime bitterness towards the constant adulation that Captain Atomic received led him to try and take the glory for himself by turning Captain Atomic into a sock puppet.
  • Harmless Villain: Generally treated as one by AP. He usually lives up to it.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Barely considered a threat by Joey and AP for most of the series and generally incredibly inept, despite having successfully turned Captain Atomic into a puppet.
  • Jerkass: He's self-centered, envious, bitter, and only interested in being venerated by the people of Mega City.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Mookie always tries to replace Captain Atomic and Atomic Puppet as Mega City's hero, only to be laughed at and humiliated. "Hero Hall of Fame" is a good example, as Mookie tries to seize the opportunity for fame when Captain Atomic is inducted into the Hero Hall of Fame. Not only did Captain Atomic's fans hate him, but his plan to destroy the Captain Atomic statue ended up with him naked and being laughed at by them.
  • The Load: In "Hero Hall of Fame", a montage shows that Mookie never really helped Captain Atomic as his sidekick, implying he was only his sidekick to ride the coattails of Captain Atomic to glory.
  • Mama's Boy: When not in costume, he relies on his scooter bike-bound mother to help him out heavily.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Flashbacks show that Captain Atomic was overly-critical and dismissive of Mookie's efforts, which goes a long way towards explaining why Mookie became envious and turned against him. AP's been called out on this a few times.
    Joey (after AP talks about a superglue prank he pulled on Mookie all the time): And you wonder why he turned you into a puppet.
  • Never My Fault: In "The Big Shift", Mookie lashes out at the people of Mega City for never accepting him as a hero, despite the fact that he's usually the one causing problems by creating monsters and working together with villains so he can get credit for "defeating" them afterwards.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain / Took a Level in Badass: Elevated to the position of one in "The Big Shift" when he quits the wannabe superhero act and gets sent to jail, where he teams up with Tite-Gripp.
  • Older Than They Look: Although he appears to be around 18, his actual age is apparently about 35.
  • The Rival: To Atomic Puppet. Just barely.
  • Secondary Color Nemesis: His purple costume works in contrast to Atomic Puppet's blue one.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: In contrast to Captain Atomic, Mookie never quite lives up to his own self-perceived greatness, thanks to his incompetence and general uselessness around Captain Atomic.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With Atomic Puppet in some episodes, such as "Atomic Goo" and "Parallel Puppet".
  • Utility Belt: It's what he uses to fly, although it doesn't always do what he wants.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Professor Tite-Gripp in the Season 1 finale.
  • Villains With Good Publicity: Because nobody (except Joey and Pauline) is aware that Mookie was responsible for Captain Atomic's "disappearance", the townspeople see him mostly as just another superhero, albeit much, much less popular than Captain Atomic or the Justice Alliance. Finally lifted from him in "The Big Shift" when he tells Mega City he destroyed Captain Atomic.

     Professor Tite-Gripp 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/professor_tite_gripp.png
Voiced by: Rick Miller
Once Captain Atomic's strongest rival, now Atomic Puppet's most dangerous foe. Professor Tite-Gripp used his super-genius I.Q. to build powerful, mechanical fists to crush his opponents. Unfortunately, his genius I.Q. doesn't always translate to streets smarts, giving Atomic Puppet the 'in' they need to show Tite-Gripp that it takes a lot more than a couple of big metal mitts to snatch Mega City's control from their grasp.

See their video profile here.


  • A Degree in Useless: He's a professor in "opening things". Though in a slight twist, his degree is actually quite useful in his criminal activities — opening bank vaults, prison cells, and his enemies' skulls.
  • Ambiguously Brown: Very dark skin, but no clear confirmation. His face is pure white though, presumably face paint to imitate a skull.
  • Archenemy: Was this to Captain Atomic. Even against Atomic Puppet, he's probably their biggest enemy who poses an actual threat to them.
  • Artificial Limbs: Both of his ginormous arms.
  • Artificial Limbs Are Stronger: The source of his incredible strength is his mechanical arms, capable of crushing cars and digging holes in the sides of buildings.
  • Card-Carrying Villain: Takes a lot of delight in doing evil things and openly refers himself as the wickedest villain in Mega City.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His voice, while normally calm, still carries a menacing air to it.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Although he acts calm and honorable, Tite-Gripp will always betray his words if it benefits him. For example, in his first appearance, he "promises" to Joey and AP that he is a reformed man when they have to free him to get AP out of a pickle jar. Tite-Gripp does open the jar, but immediately breaks out of his prison to terrorize Mega City.
  • Future Badass: In a vision shown in "Hero's Holiday", he actually succeeded in conquering Mega City, and even killed Joey.
  • Genius Bruiser: As his title of "professor" would indicate. He did build his inhumanly strong mechanical arms, after all.
  • I Lied: Tite-Gripp is endlessly fond of using this trope to get the better of his enemies, though most of them wise up to it after their first deception. In "Atomic Weakness", it gets used against him when Joey and AP ask him to steal Chief Kevlar's power-draining meteorite, knowing that he would destroy it rather than give it to the duo as he promised.
  • Institutional Apparel: A large orange jumpsuit is his usual attire, due to being in prison most of the time.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Despite his enormous bionic arms and huge chest, Tite-Gripp is extremely fast, quite capable of dashing through the city and making huge leaps.
  • Mad Scientist: Which he combines with his incredible strength to make for a formidable foe.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Very fond of messing with heroes' emotions in order to deceive them. For example, in "Soft Spot", he tricks a gone-soft AP into believing he really just needs a hug and claims to have reformed after receiving one on live television. Almost immediately afterwards, he begins rampaging around the city, to the horror of the devastated AP, who Tite-Gripp is able to ruthlessly pummel with ease because of it.
  • Meaningful Name: His huge mechanical arms sure do give him a tight grip.
  • Primal Stance: His usual way of walking, which is reasonable when you consider the size of his arms.
  • Soft-Spoken Sadist: While he's perfectly capable of shouting when he wants to, Professor Tite-Gripp usually speaks in a very calm manner befitting of his Faux Affably Evil personality.
  • Tailor-Made Prison: His jail cell has him hung up on the ceiling by massive manacles, since he could simply break out of any other prison with his bionic limbs.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Tiny waist compared to his enormous arms and chest. He also has a comparatively small head to go with it.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Mookie in the Season 1 finale.

     Ms. Erlenmeyer/Queen Mindbender 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ms_erlenmeyer.png
Left: Ms. Erlenmeyer. Right: Queen Mindbender
Voiced by: Kristina Nicoll
Ms. Erlenmeyer was a cranky science teacher, who felt she had wasted her life away teaching little brats who'd rather goof off and cause trouble than listen to what she had to say. As AP tried to trick Erlenmeyer into letting Joey out of his detention sentence, the situation between Erlenmeyer and Joey grew more intense as they were both pushed to the edge of sanity. By the time AP confessed, it was too late! Ms. Erlenmeyer had unlocked her inner supervillain and ascended into a portal into another dimension. She had finally found her true purpose in life...to destroy Joey Felt!

See their video profile here.


  • Another Dimension: It's where her king comes from and where she was transformed from a bitter teacher to a superpowered evildoer.
  • Apathetic Teacher: She hated her job and the students, so the descent into supervillainy was a welcome change for her.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: "Atomic Detention" was a one-off story until her return in "Erlenmeyer's Revenge".
  • Cool Crown: Her horned gem-encrusted headdress as Queen Mindbender, which amplifies her psychic abilities.
  • Create Your Own Villain: She never really was evil in the first place, just really nasty. Unfortunately, AP didn't understand that.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Her unseen master/husband.
  • Evil Old Folks: Well, originally just really ill-tempered.
  • Evil Teacher: And they don't come much more evil than the bride of an Eldritch Abomination!
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: From simply a very harsh teacher to the queen of an Eldritch Abomination and one of Atomic Puppet's most dangerous foes.
  • God Save Us from the Queen!: Describes her master as the king.
  • Green and Mean: One of the side effects of her transformation.
  • Humanoid Abomination: As a result of her transformation.
  • Jerkass: She's the kind of teacher who sends students to hours-long detention for petty things like talking during a test.
  • Knight of Cerebus: In "Erlenmeyer's Revenge". Her reappearance in "Lil' AP" was a lot more comedic though.
  • Mind Control: What she always does to Mega City's citizens to convince them to summon her master.
  • My Brain Is Big: As a result of her encounter with her master. It increases with her power.
  • Power Floats: Always as Queen Mindbender.
  • Punny Name: An Erlenmeyer flask is a common science beaker, and Ms. Erlenmeyer was a science teacher.
  • Sadist Teacher: The display skeleton in her classroom is made from the last student who crossed her. Then she got worse.
  • Sanity Slippage: How she became evil before metamorphosing into Queen Mindbender.
  • Stupidity-Inducing Attack: In "Lil' AP", she reduces the intelligence of all the adults in Mega City to that of children in an effort to make their brains easier to manipulate. Unfortunately, it also came with all the difficulties of working with children.
  • Touched by Vorlons: Ms. Erlenmeyer became Queen Mindbender by coming in contact with an alien entity after becoming evil.
  • Unholy Matrimony: Her relationship with her king.

     Rudolph Mintenberg 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mintenberg.png
Voiced by: Scott McCord
Sure Mega City's eccentric billionaire Rudolph Mintenberg is annoying and obnoxious, but that's the kind of thing you can get away with when you're mega rich! In a perfect world, Mintenberg would be happy living a lavish life overlooking Mega City from his multi-million dollar hilltop compound, but he's bored with that. In fact, you'd have a hard time finding something that doesn't bore him! Unfortunately, the only thing that seems to keep him entertained is concocting various havoc-causing gadgets and experiments that force Atomic Puppet to come and save the day. Of course, that's until he gets bored with that too...

See their video profile here.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Considering how rich he is, he's probably just tanned.
  • Annoying Laugh: His girlish giggle, though it fits his Psychopathic Manchild personality.
  • Attention Deficit... Ooh, Shiny!: Gets bored extremely quickly.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Originally appeared only very briefly in "Ultimate Collection", where his sole purpose in the story was the owner of the 133rd Captain Atomic action figure. His return in "Something Chicken" and "AP vs. Disastro II" cemented his recurring status and gave him a more defined role and characterization.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Bored easily and just as easily entertained.
  • Eccentric Millionaire: Billionaire, and "eccentric" is an understatement (to say the least).
  • Friendly Enemy: Sometimes. Atomic Puppet doesn't like him very much, but he has helped them out too.
  • Goofy Print Underwear: Wears purple dollar sign-patterned boxers underneath his bathrobes.
  • The Hedonist: As an extremely rich, bored, and childish man, everything he does is purely for his own entertainment.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: Has expressed interest in hunting Atomic Puppet for sport a few times.
  • Mad Scientist: Most of the things he does to entertain himself could qualify him for one such as mutant chickens and superpowered robot suits.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: Highly eccentric, energetic, and easily bored all for an often problematic combination.
  • Rich Boredom: The primary motive behind all his dangerous schemes.
  • Rich Idiot with No Day Job: He seems to be generally viewed by one as most of the city, as he spends his time entertaining himself through crazy experiments that nobody is aware of.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": There's a recurring inconsistency on whether it's Mintenberg or Mintenburg, but there seems to be a preference towards the former.
  • Wild Card: Depending on the episode, he's either a kooky but non-malicious enemy, an oddball of an ally, or simply the guy who accidentally created the problem of the episode.

Voiced by: Rob Tinkler
When news of Captain Atomic's disappearance rippled across the galaxy, renowned alien space commander Zorp, assembled his crew to travel to Earth and brainwash the citizens of Mega City with one goal in mind...to capture the citizens and serve them at the Intergalactic Potluck. Instead, Zorp found out the hard way that the city had a new hero and Atomic Puppet sent him back to his galaxy to lick his wounds. Beaten and embarrassed, Zorp is determined to prove he can not only beat Atomic Puppet, but serve them on a silver platter as the main course!

Voiced by: Rob Tinkler
The news of Captain Atomic's disappearance has led to the return of one of his toughest foes, the mighty Mudman (not to be confused with Dirtbag, that's his cousin). Mudman has the ability to not only shapeshift, but to merge with new hosts, taking control of their bodies in the process. His goal is to eliminate Atomic Puppet, take control of Mega City, and prove to any hero in the galaxy that he's the stain of justice that's impossible to get out.

Voiced by: Heather Bambrick
A deceptive and stealthy "cat burglar", Naughty Kitty prowls through the shadows of Mega City in search of the rarest and most luxurious feline breeds to call her own. Unlike some of Atomic Puppet's other more obnoxious and abrasive villains, Naughty Kitty stealthily plans her attacks instead of bursting into action looking for a fight. Be warned, she's not to be taken lightly, once her back is up she's not afraid to use one of her nine lives to exact revenge.

He's not the biggest or strongest villain Mega City has ever seen, but no one fights as dirty as Mudman's cousin, Dirtbag. When this sack of filth rides into town on his giant maggot, he's got only one goal; to turn Mega City into a pig pen so dirty not even his hogs back home would want to roll around in it!

     Absorbo Lad 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/absorbo_lad_new.PNG
Voiced by: Peter Oldring
When your only superpower is the ability to steal other powers, people tend not to want to be around you. Such is life for Absorbo Lad, a wannabe superhero who grew tired of being excluded from the "superhero" side and has turned "evildoer" with plans to absorb the powers of the Justice Alliance. Once their powers course through his veins, he will prove once and for all that without their powers, the Justice Alliance is no more a hero than anyone else.

See their video profile here.


  • All Your Powers Combined: Is able to steal multiple powers at once, such as Atomic Puppet alongside the entire Justice Alliance. He also gains their physical features like Captain Atomic's muscles, Commander Cavalier's mustache, and Crimson Beacon's flaming hair.
  • Assimilation Backfire: Absorbo Lad gained all the weaknesses of the Justice Alliance along with their powers, so Joey and AP were able to subdue him with the Justice Alliance's secret stash of weaknesses.
  • Bad Powers, Bad People: The dangerous nature of his superpowers caused people to shun him, turning him evil. It also influences why he hates superheroes, as he despises how people admire them while he was feared.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite appearing as a scrawny nerdy-looking guy dressed in a cheaply-made costume, Absorbo Lad is one of the most feared and dangerous villains in the show, defeating the Justice Alliance and Atomic Puppet singlehandedly in the first few minutes of his appearance.
  • The Dreaded: The Justice Alliance are terrified of him.
  • Fallen Hero: Like Mookie, he was originally a wannabe superhero, but now feels that superheroes don't deserve the admiration they get. As he puts it, he's wants to prove they're "no more a hero than anyone else".
    Absorbo Lad (mockingly while terrorizing Mega City with stolen powers): What's the matter? All of a sudden, you people don't like superpowers?
  • Gag Nose: His big pointy honker.
  • Jerkass: His idea of using stolen superpowers isn't to take over the world, but to just be an asshole to civilians.
  • The Napoleon: He's even shorter than twelve-year-old Joey, but his hatred for superheroes is on par with a much larger villain.
  • Nerd Glasses: Wears these.
  • One-Shot Character: Despite having only appeared in a single episode, he managed to get his own character profile on the official website.
  • Power Parasite: His sole ability is to steal the powers of his foes with only a touch.
    • Energy Absorption: However, he can also apply this power drain to other forms of "power", allowing him to actually eat electricity to gain electric abilities.
  • Tailor-Made Prison: A giant juicer-like device intended to squeeze out any powers he's stolen.

Other Characters

     Pauline Bell 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pauline.png
Click here  to see Sword Sister
Voiced by: Lisa Norton
Pauline is possibly the only person who knows more inane superhero minutiae than her friend Joey and it drives him insane! In fairness, Pauline's comic knowledge is in her DNA; her uncle owns the local comic shop and she has been raised on superhero mythology since she was a tiny know-it-all. Pauline is self-assured, quick-witted, and impulsive. She loves to taunt “the puppet” and takes great pride in pushing his buttons. Pauline figured out Joey and AP’s secret early on...but promised to keep it a secret as long as the guys involve her.

See their video profile here.


  • A Day in the Limelight: "Sword Sisters".
  • Adorkable: Not to the same extent as Joey, but her cute appearance and geeky interests gives her shades of it.
  • Badass Adorable: Pretty dang cute and just as capable of helping Atomic Puppet take out the bad guys. Even moreso as Sword Sister naturally.
  • Badass Normal: Although she has no superpowers (except when she became Sword Sister), she's usually clever and resourceful enough to stand toe on toe with most of the show's villains.
  • Berserk Button: Being called a sidekick and telling her she can't be a hero.
  • Birds of a Feather: She and Joey are basically the two biggest superhero nerds in their school and probably all of Mega City. No wonder they're such good friends.
  • Boyish Short Hair: It's coloured pink though.
  • Cool Uncle: Her uncle's the owner of Cosmic Comix (where she works at) and taught her everything she knows about superheroes (which is everything).
  • Damsel in Distress: Usually averted, but she plays the role in "Mole Men".
  • Deadpan Snarker: Her typical attitude.
    Joey: If my parents show up, cover for me.
    Pauline: Don't I always...
  • The Gadfly: She loves to mess with AP as well as any villains she helps Atomic Puppet against.
  • Improbable Age: Although she's only 12, she already has a job at the local comic book store, though it's somewhat justified since her uncle owns the place.
  • Invisible Parents: Her parents have never been seen or mentioned anywhere. Her aforementioned Cool Uncle is never seen or mentioned in the show either.
  • Last-Name Basis: Usually calls Joey "Felt".
  • Muggle Best Friend: To Joey.
    Joey: If only we had a non-superhero friend who could help us.
    Pauline: Very subtle, Felt.
  • Nice Hat: Is typically seen wearing a beanie.
  • Noodle People: Even moreso than Joey.
  • Otaku Surrogate: She's a huge comic book geek, only (barely) rivaled by Joey.
  • Platonic Life-Partners: With Joey.
  • Secret Keeper: She is the only one who knows about Joey's secret identity and what happened to Captain Atomic (aside from Mookie).
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: With AP on multiple occasions, such as "Erlenmeyer's Revenge" and "Worm Boy". It probably has something to do with AP's ego not meshing well with her sassy attitude.
    AP: Just what I needed! Another kid telling me what to do!
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: Despite having pink hair and wearing purple and pink, Pauline is pretty tomboyish as seen in her short hair, clothes, personality, and interests.
  • Women Are Wiser: A downplayed example. Joey and AP aren't morons, but Pauline can be more level-headed than them and is easily the smartest of the trio, acting as the Straight Man to the duo at times ("Atomic Detention" is a good example). However, she still has her own set of quirks and flaws, like her impulsive attitude.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: She has pink hair. Probably dyed.

As Sword Sister

  • Action Girl: What she starts as.
    • Dark Action Girl: What she turns into as the Sword of Enlightenment's power corrupts her.
  • Alliterative Name: Sword Sister
  • Badass Cape: Part of her costume.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Her introduction is saving Joey and AP from Professor Tite-Gripp by slicing up a car he threw at them before defeating Tite-Gripp in about a minute.
  • Catchphrase: "Sword Sister is ready to rock!". Though she only says it once, AP calls it a catchphrase.
  • Cool Helmet: A winged one that looks sorta like Princess War Tickle's.
  • Fingerless Gloves: Wears black ones.
  • Glowing Eyes of Doom: Her eyes glow when the sword's power drives her mad.
  • Rollerblade Good: A pair of golden roller skates is part of her costume.
  • Superpowers For A Day: Due to Princess War Tickle getting the Sword of Enlightenment back and putting it safely away in its power-controlling scabbard. Pauline is a bit disappointed, but War Tickle praises her for her great potential to become a real superhero and for giving up such incredible power.
    Princess War Tickle: Using powers is easy, but giving it up is the true test.
  • Temporarily a Villain: Due to the power of the Sword of Enlightenment corrupting her. It takes the strength of Princess War Tickle and Atomic Puppet together to wrest the sword and its power away from her.
    Pauline: I guess the power of the sword kinda got to me.
    Princess War Tickle: Verily. But powers alone do not make one strong, youngling.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: On the receiving end, thanks to the Sword of Enlightenment.

     The Felt Family 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_felts.png
Clockwise beginning top left: Phil, Vivian, Bubbles, and Abbie
Voiced by: Carlos Diaz (Phil), Kristina Nicoll (Vivian), Katie Griffin (Abbie), Peter Oldring (Bubbles)
Phil, Vivian, Abbie, and of course Bubbles the family cat, each have their own unique relationship with Joey.

Phil is Joey's rugged, life advice-spewing father, always concerned that his son would rather play with a sock puppet than pull up his bootstraps and take on the world.

Vivian on the other hand is Joey's sweet, hug-fueled mom, worried that her little "Jo-Jo Bear" is going to rush out into the world and get gobbled up by the scary dangers that are out there.

Unlike her more dramatic parents, Abbie simply sees Joey as her caring and sometimes dorky older brother.

Last but certainly not least is Bubbles, Phil's pride and joy and Joey's only competition for the #2 male in the house. Joey and Bubbles get along great, it's AP who's convinced that Bubbles is secretly an undercover supervillain named "Disastro" who has plans to take out Atomic Puppet from the inside!

Each member of the family might differ in how they interact with Joey, but what they all have in common is that none of them have any idea the kind of superheroic life Joey lives when he leaves the house...or that he's the reason the roof always seems to need repairing!

See their video profile here.


Phil Felt

  • A Day in the Limelight: Gets the most appearances out of all of Joey's family, such as "Survival of the Feltest", "Monster Truck Invasion", and "Pinched Nerves".
  • Big Eater: The man has demolished about a dozen large stacks of pancakes at a breakfast restaurant, and Zorp's analysis of his body indicates he can eat 40 slices of pizza in one sitting.
  • Big Fun: He's a pretty large man, but also a really nice guy who loves his family and his pet cat.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: A big rugged man who loves to spend time with his son.
  • Cuteness Proximity: When it comes to his Bubbles, who he considers to be "the most adorable kitty-kat in the world". AP strongly disagrees.
  • Good Parents: Phil definitely cares a lot about Joey and Abigail and really enjoys spending time with his son too.
  • Happily Married: To Vivian. The two are shown to still be pretty affectionate towards each other.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: While he is tough and stern with his son (especially since he dislikes AP), he has made it clear that he genuinely enjoys spending time with him so Joey can become somebody who will make him proud.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: Really loves his cat Bubbles. In fact, more than Joey at times.
    Phil (to Bubbles): You're like the son I never had!
    Joey: Ummm, dad?
    Phil: Oh, sorry.
  • Papa Wolf: He's shown to be pretty protective of his kids. When Joey tells him in "The Big Shift" that Mookie is "some jerk who hangs outside my school and beats up kids", Phil is furious.
  • Parental Obliviousness: To the fact that Joey is Atomic Puppet and that sock puppet he keeps is actually Captain Atomic. This changes at the end of Season 1 when Joey reveals his secret identity to him.

Vivian Felt

  • A Day in the Limelight: In "Don't Track the Mudman".
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parent: She babies the kids a fair bit, so she often becomes one for Joey.
  • Good Parents: Although she is rather overprotective, Vivian does love her children very much.
  • Happily Married: To Phil. The two are shown to still be pretty affectionate towards each other.
  • Hartman Hips: Not as exaggerated as some examples, but can be seen when she's in her bathrobes.
  • Housewife: Usually seen doing laundry.
  • My Beloved Smother: Especially towards Joey.
  • Parental Obliviousness: To the fact that Joey is Atomic Puppet and that sock puppet he keeps is actually Captain Atomic. Phil decides to keep it a secret from her after he learns the truth because he doesn't need her "freaking out whenever [Joey] leaves the house".
  • Women Are Wiser: She's a lot more mellow than Phil and is usually the first to object to any of his zanier ideas (such as training Bubbles to use their toilet) or to quiet him down when he gets impatient (like when he begins complaining about slow service at a pancake house).

Abigail "Abbie" Felt

Bubbles

  • A Day in the Limelight: "AP vs. Disastro", its sequel, and "Atomic Hairball".
  • Buffoonish Tomcat: Pretty oblivious to his surroundings most of the time and rather slow as well.
  • Cats Are Mean: Averted, with the exception of "AP vs. Disastro 2", in which he becomes an evil genius after eating Mintenberg's new cat food brand.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Case in point: he once ate a ball of supercharged hair that transformed him into a giant monster.
  • Fat Cat: In the eyes of the whole family except Phil.
  • Mega Neko: Becomes one in "Atomic Hairball".
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: To AP, who claims Bubbles is a supervillain named Disastro secretly conspiring against him.

     Rex Bordeaux 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rex_bordeaux.png
Voiced by: David Huband
Rex made a career out of covering Captain Atomic's over-the-top heroics. Every night he was guaranteed a top story that would blow his viewers' socks off! Now without Captain Atomic to cover, Rex has been reduced to covering every small story he can get his hands on and is counting on Atomic Puppet to be the hero he needs to cement his spot as Mega City's #1 newsman.

See their video profile here.


  • A Day in the Limelight: He features quite prominently in "Media Darlings".
  • Companion Cube: His (secretly fake) mustache, which he refers to as "The General".
  • Expy: Bears a striking resemblance to Ron Burgundy (they even have the same initials).
  • It's All About Me / Small Name, Big Ego: Very, very egotistical. His channel's newsvan is painted with an idealized version of himself riding a tiger and carrying a warhammer in a lightning storm.
  • Kent Brockman News: A washed-up narcissist who has been unable to find any success stories since the disappearance of Captain Atomic. Also shown to have a rivalry with the weatherman.
  • Recurring Extra: His usual role in any episode, but appears frequently enough that he's considered a major character.

     The Justice Alliance 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/justice_alliance.png
Left to Right: Crimson Beacon, Commander Cavalier, and Robo-Ron
Voiced by: Rob Tinkler (Commander Cavalier), Martin Roach (Robo-Ron)
An alliance of the galaxy's fiercest defenders, sworn to bring justice to evildoers and protect the galaxy from villainy. The alliance consists of...

Commander Cavalier, a bronzed beefcake who in the absence of Captain Atomic has taken the reins as leader of the alliance. When forced into battle, Cavalier is known to crush his opponents with his brutish strength and disintegrate injustice with his scorching heat vision. His only known weakness? Being dazzled by his own reflection.

Crimson Beacon, a silent defender of justice and Cavalier's second-in-command. Using his energy spheres, Crimson Beacon has the ability to conjure an infinite amount of tools to help defend the galaxy.

Robo-Ron, the beatboxing brains of the operation and engineer of the Justice Alliance starship. Robo-Ron may not bring much to the table in terms of superheroics but his responsibilities run deep as the main strategist of the Justice Alliance's galactic travels. He's also the architect of any technology they may need along the way.

Missing from the ranks is their former leader Captain Atomic. In the wake of being transformed into a puppet, Captain Atomic went into hiding when he feared his former teammates would mock his new condition.

See their video profile here.


Commander Cavalier

  • Achilles' Heel: Reflective surfaces because he can't stop admiring himself. Show him a mirror and he'll instantly stop to take a look at his own physique.
  • Alliterative Name: Commander Cavalier.
  • Ambiguously Gay: He acts and looks somewhat camp and is often seen with his arm hoisted around Crimson Beacon's shoulder (and even holding hands with him) for unclear reasons.
  • Badass Mustache: He once got it stolen by Absorbo Lad, making him powerless.
  • Chest Insignia: The only thing on his chest.
  • Expy: Of Superman. AP briefly mentioned that he came from another planet and his primary ability is heat vision. His obsession with his appearance also brings to mind Booster Gold.
  • Eye Beams: His main superpower.
  • Flying Brick: Much like Captain Atomic.
  • Human Aliens: If AP is to be believed.
  • The Lancer: Formerly of the Justice Alliance to Captain Atomic. Has become the leader with Captain Atomic's transformation into AP.
  • Nice Guy: As if to match the colour of his body and hair, he's got the biggest heart of gold of all the superheroes in the show.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Huge chest, small waist.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: To show off his chiseled body. Whenever he does wear a shirt, he still has his chest exposed.

Robo-Ron

  • Achilles' Heel: Nanobots short-circuit him.
  • Cyber Cyclops: Has a single purple robotic visor-shaped eye.
  • Cyborg: Never explicitly called one, but his appearance makes it obvious he is.
  • Do-Anything Robot: For a cyborg superhero, he has a lot of gadgets that seem rather unpractical, like a phonograph and windshield wipers.
  • Expy: Of Cyborg for obvious reasons, with some elements of Robocop.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Most of the Justice Alliance's special weapons and tools are of his design.
  • My Brain Is Big: Contained in a large purple tank above his head.
  • The Smart Guy: Of the Justice Alliance.
  • The Unintelligible: Speaks entirely in robotic beatbox.
  • Weak, but Skilled: He is considered to be the least powerful member of the Justice Alliance, but compensates with his super-genius intellect and variety of gadgets.

Crimson Beacon

  • Achilles' Heel: His Green Lantern-esque powers mean prisms neutralize his abilities.
  • Expy: Of Green Lantern, as seen in his name and powers. His appearance does bring to mind Firestorm for some, however,
  • Flaming Hair: It's been extinguished on several occasions.
  • The Lancer: Has taken on the role after Commander Cavalier's promotion to leader of the Justice Alliance.
  • Red Is Heroic: Technically, it's crimson.
  • The Voiceless: Has never spoken a word.

     Princess War Tickle 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/princess_war_tickle_improved.PNG
Voiced by: Kristina Nicoll
A legendary warrior with lightning quick reflexes, Princess War Tickle used to fight alongside Captain Atomic, frequently leaving him in awe of her raw power. She can often be seen charging into hordes of enemies wielding a giant war axe or broadsword. She can open portals connecting Earth and her home in the Everrealm. She is a celestial guardian, a protector of dimensions. She currently defends the multi-realms.

See their video profile here.


  • Action Girl: Considered one of the most powerful superheroes and has certainly proven it more than once.
  • Always Someone Better: The reason why AP can't stand her.
    Pauline: I just got props from the greatest superhero of all time!
    AP: You mean, second greatest.
    War Tickle: Nope, she means greatest! You've got some catching up to do, Captain Atomic.
  • An Axe to Grind: When she isn't relying on the Sword of Enlightenment.
  • Atrocious Alias: Her silly name doesn't stop her from being a total badass though.
  • Battlecry: A very distinctive yodel that AP finds to be very annoying.
  • Beauty Mark: On her right cheek.
  • Big Good: Is often seen as one amongst the superheroes with the disappearance of Captain Atomic.
  • Cool Helmet: A winged one.
  • Cool Sword: The Sword of Enlightenment, which can steal power and is so strong that it can drive ordinary people who use it mad (as Pauline experienced).
  • Expy: Of Wonder Woman, right down to having a lasso of truth and reflective bracers. A few have also compared her appearance to Xena.
  • Floating Continent: Her home. Think something like Themyscira in space.
  • Guardian of the Multiverse: Her duty, hence her ability to open portals.
  • The Rival: To AP, who doesn't like her very much since she's the only superhero considered by the people to be greater than he is. War Tickle, on the other hand, merely finds AP to be somewhat obnoxious.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: AP even refers her as "an old frenemy".
  • Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Her manner of speaking.

     Warren Beasley 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/warren.png
Voiced by: Mark Edwards
Every neighborhood's got one; the nosy kid who pries around, asks too many questions, and lingers too long to try and nab any morsel of information he can use against you. Warren knows everything about everyone on his block, except for Joey Felt, who he's pretty certain is hiding something...and he plans to find out what!

See their video profile here.


  • Buttmonkey / The Chew Toy: Let's see. He's been attacked by a robot duplicate of Atomic Puppet, scared multiple times by animatronics, abducted by a malevolent A.I., gotten amnesia three times, and been arrested for "looking shifty".
  • Chekhov's Gunman: While his debut in "Bad Lair Day" did establish his snooping and nerdy characterization, his reappearance in "Atomic Android" was much more significant and it fleshed him out a little more by introducing his interest in Joey's Secret Identity and cementing his Chew Toy status.
  • Fanboy: He really idolizes Rex Bordeaux. Fitting, since Rex's media vulture behavior mirrors Warren's snooping.
  • Gag Nose: A large round pink nose holding up his glasses.
  • Insistent Terminology: He's prefers to call his snooping "eavesdropping", as he tells Pauline in "Bad Lair Day".
  • Insufferable Genius: Nerdy and complete with the snooty voice to go with it.
  • Nerd: Nerd Glasses? Check. Unpopular? Check. Snobby attitude? Check.
  • Nosy Neighbour: He even steals Phil's morning newspaper on a regular basis.
  • Secret Chaser: Is determined to prove that Joey Felt is Atomic Puppet.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: On everybody in his neighborhood, as well as his classmates. He likes to collect their secrets and personal information for future usage against them.
  • Youthful Freckles: Just like Joey.

     The Mayor of Mega City 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/the_mayor.png
Voiced by: Kevin Hanchard
The Mayor loves that the citizens of Mega City feel as safe and secure as they do. What he doesn't love is the cost that comes with achieving that. After all, he's the one on the hook for the bills racked up by all the smashing and crashing in the struggle between superheroes and supervillains, but he never gets any credit! Sure the superheroes do the fighting, but what about the guy who figures out how to pay for it? The Mayor is confident there's a better way to protect the city, whether it's the police stepping up their game or him finding a more delicate hero, he's only going to tolerate Atomic Puppet until he can find a way to replace them.

See their video profile here.


  • Ambiguously Brown: Yet another example.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: He makes a non-speaking cameo in "Bad Lair Day" before his more proper introduction in "Brawl-For-All".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite his often antagonistic relationship with Atomic Puppet and going as far as too threaten to prevent them from ever protecting Mega City again, he really cares about Mega City and is very happy with how Atomic Puppet makes everyone feel safe, despite the costs.
  • No Name Given / Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": He's simply referred to as "the mayor".
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat: Although not a bad mayor, he is most certainly not a friendly one towards Atomic Puppet.

     Chief Kevlar 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chief_kevlar.jpg
Voiced by: Joe Motiki
Mega City's new police chief doesn't care for superheroes or the criminal element they attract. Kevlar isn't old school. He's an ex-special ops commando who's all about the tech and making the police department self-sufficient. Gone are the days when trumped-up superheroes do the police department's job. He wants to rid the city of all traces of Captain Atomic, Mookie, and Atomic Puppet and prove once and for all his police force is the only protection Mega City needs.

See their video profile here.


  • Drill Sergeant Nasty: Used to be one and still acts like one.
  • Driven by Envy: Part of the reason why he hates Atomic Puppet's vigilantism is because he wants to prove that the police are as capable of dealing with supervillains as superheroes can.
    Chief Kevlar: That costumed freak's always stealing my thunder!
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Seriously, Pauline's usage of "like" when using Obfuscating Stupidity to steal a power-draining meteorite from him made him explode.
    Chief Kevlar: You say "like" one more time and I'm going to lock you up for crimes against language!
    Pauline: *gulp*
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: After the events of "Atomic Weakness", he becomes less antagonistic to Atomic Puppet, showing that despite being a Rabid Cop and Green-Eyed Monster, he's willing to forgive others. And since he's the only cop in Mega City who averts Police are Useless, he really just wants his men to be the best they can be in the end.
  • No Indoor Voice: It's hard to name an instance in which he's not screaming at the top of his lungs or sounding like he's about to lose it.
  • Punny Name: Kevlar is a type of synthetic fiber used to make bulletproof vests — fitting for a big scary cop.
  • Rabid Cop: Especially with his zero-tolerance attitude towards any form of lawbreaking.
  • Scary Black Man: As the hot-tempered head of the police.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Similar to Commander Cavalier.
