"Behold! The instrument of your doom! I call it: The Annihilatrix! And when it is completed, a million gigatons of thrust will propel the Earth, directly, into the Sun. So look upon my works ye mighty, and despair..."

    Xander Crews 

Xander Crews/Awesome X/Barnaby Jones

"Look, don't worry man. At his age, I was like, chronic masturbater. Kinda, kinda still am. But the point is... I like it. I would like to masturbate right now in this car. You know? If I had my stuff with me. I would! What are we even talking about?"

The pretentious and obnoxious multi-billionaire heir to the conglomerate Crews Enterprises, whose secret identity as the superhero Awesome X is in danger of being retired when he and his army of mooks, the Xtacles, defeat every super-villain in town. In Season 2, Xander is homeless and the founder of an outreach centre as a result of Killface (apparently) losing his entire fortune. He too runs for presidency when he hears that Xander is running.


  • Alien Abduction: Willingly leaves Earth to travel to Killface's planet at the end of the series.
  • Betty and Veronica: He's the Veronica to Grace's Archie.
  • Bi the Way: Is more than a little bi-curious, which becomes more evident as the series goes on. His starring in several gay pornos and obsession with Fred Dryer certainly don't help his case.
  • Character Name Alias: Late in Season 1 after losing everything and meeting a blinded Killface, he takes up the alias of Barnaby Jones. Despite getting the reference, Killface still believes him.
  • Deceased Parents Are the Best: In true superhero fashion, his parents were murdered while he was young.
  • Disappeared Dad: He has a daughter, Jenny, whom he never met until she tracked him down after her mother, Felicity "Fat Tits" Finnigan, dies of cancer.
  • Handicapped Badass: After having his neck broken by Killface at the debate.
    Dr. Stewart: Yeah, I can't give you a medical okay to... battle a cadre of supervillains on top of a giant doomsday device?
    Xander: Well, not with that attitude.
  • Hunting the Most Dangerous Game: He somehow was led to believe that pandas were the world's most dangerous game, not man.
  • Jerkass: He treats practically everyone like dirt.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: He manages to trick Killface into not recognising him without much effort, mostly due to Killface's blindness.
  • Pixellation: He ends up naked for most of the second half of Season 1, resulting in his lower half being pixelated.
  • Punched Across the Room: At the end of the presidential election arc, Killface punches him across the Hagar pants arena, resulting in the breaking of several of Xander's vertebrae.
  • Riches to Rags/Rags to Riches: Goes back and forth between these. At the start of the series he is a multi-billionaire. By the midpoint of Season 1 he has lost everything, including his fortune, his company, his secret identity and even control over the Xtacles. He manages to get it all back by the end of the series after revealing himself as Xander Crews. However, in the same episode, Killface throws away his $20 billion check, and he ends up living on the streets for almost a year as a result. Until he remembers that the check flew back in his face when he descended the Annihilatrix elevator, and regains his company once more.
  • Theme Naming: Awesome X, a.k.a. Xander Crews, the commander of the Xtacles and their ship, the Xcalibur.
  • Tragic Keepsake: The photo of his murdered parents, accompanied by a sad melody whenever shown on-screen.
  • Wig, Dress, Accent: As Barnaby Jones, he wears a blonde wig and instead of his usual tuxedo, a pair of rocket pants (until Simon steals them, then he just ends up naked). Subverted in that he never intended to use the wig and pants as a disguise, but was just wearing them when he escaped from the Xcaliber.

Major Characters

Click here to see Antagone 
"God... Still can't stay mad at him!"

Xander's red-haired reporter girlfriend who he treats with no respect. She is unaware that he is actually Awesome X, a superhero she reports on, and despises. After falling into a barrel of self-aware, radioactive ants, she develops an alter ego: the super-villain Antagone.


    Stan 

Stan

Voiced by: Stuart Culpepper

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ff4defa10e113fb89683ffaa58d712b0.png
"Yes, you'd better gasp collectively!"

Stan is the head of the Board of Directors at Crews Enterprises, and generally is left with the job of running the company, due to Xander's incompetence. He returns in "The Xtacles", now the president of the United States, giving orders to the Xtacles.


  • Action Survivor: Despite being almost the exact opposite of the Action Hero, he manages to be one of the few characters to survive the entire series.
  • Ambiguously Evil: While immoral, he's rarely given the chance to be outright evil, although he shows it when Xander goes missing in Season 1.
  • Clone Army: The Board of Directors is filled with flesh-eating clones of himself.
    Xander: I don't care what Boys From Brazil thing you got going on in there, but I'm still the boss in here.
  • The Dog Bites Back: After being treated with a complete lack of respect from Xander, Stan ends up taking over the Awesome X identity and brand in Season 1.
  • Evil Chancellor: Towards Xander Crews and the Crews Enterprise, despite briefly taking over the company in Season 1.
  • Identity Impersonator: After pronouncing Xander dead when he takes the alias Barnaby Jones, Stan takes over his company and his secret identity and costume and becoming Awesome X. This ends when Xander returns at the end of Season 1.
  • President Evil: He becomes the president in "The Xtacles", and is even referred to as "Evil President Stan" in one of the episode synopses.
  • Vice-President Who?: Ends up becoming the Vice President when Taqu'il steps up as US President.
  • The Unintelligible: His clones, who only say "Harumph!"

    Arthur Watley 

Arthur Watley/The Dread Lobster

Voiced by: Scott Lipe

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bf7a91113ced864948ee85e611f77982.png
"I think my body is rejecting the claws."

Xander's friend and a Crews Enterprises intern who volunteered for experimentation when Xander needed a super-villain to battle, suggesting to turn himself into "the Dread Lobster", a human-crab hybrid. A suggestion he most certainly did not think through.


  • The Bus Came Back: He is dredged out of the ocean in Season 2 to join the Sisterhood of Chaos.
  • Character Death: Killed in the penultimate episode of the series.
  • Didn't Think This Through: Says this about his plan to become the Dread Lobster.
  • Incredibly Lame Pun: "I like to call it Lost Wages!", even though Xander finds it funny.
  • Interspecies Romance: With Sinn, and attempted with Antagone.
  • Half-Human Hybrid: Willingly replaces his hands with giant lobster claws in an attempt to become Xander's latest arch-nemesis to make the Awesome X brand profitable. He becomes less human and more lobster as the series goes on, until he is just a giant crab with a human head.
  • Homemade Inventions: Created the ant farm keyboard all by himself.
  • Off with His Head!: Wendell slices off his head to prevent him from proposing to Antagone.
  • Put on a Bus: Flees to live underwater midway through Season 1.
  • Rape as Backstory: Downplayed. He briefly mentions getting raped at prom.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/8e3f27fd10d27f522cc263c0a1724cf5.png
"Heh, heh, heh... Boosh!"

Killface's emotionally unstable, slightly overweight, blonde-haired son.


  • Alien Abduction: Willingly returns to his father's home planet with other members of his race at the end of the series.
  • Enfant Terrible: He goes so far as to actually activate the Annihilatrix at the end of Season 1, presumably dooming the planet.
  • Suddenly Sexuality: Just when Killface becomes a devout Christian, Simon reveals to him that he is gay. He may have been lying, but he did at least date Bobo T. Baggins at some point.
  • The Unintelligible: Most of his dialogue is incoherent mumbling, although occasionally a few words are intelligible.

    Valerie 

Valerie

Voiced by: Mary Kraft ("Meet Killface"), Amber Nash

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/15637e1f767a01795f1284216f2955a1.png
"No, revenge shall be mine!"

Valerie, or Val for short, is Killface's beleaguered, restless and terrified assistant, kidnapped and forced to serve him.


  • Action Survivor: Surprisingly manages to survive the entire series despite not being entirely skilled at firearms or fighting.
  • Ambition Is Evil: She envies Sinn's position as the leader of the "Sisterhood of Chaos", and kills her to take her place.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: What she starts off as to Killface. However, it doesn't take too long for her to rebel against him after the years of abuse.
  • Bi the Way: Starts a relationship with Sinn late into the second season but betrays and kills her after seducing her, meaning it could all have been a set-up.
  • Boyish Short Hair: She has short brown hair upon her return in Season 2 to symbolise her Character Development.
  • Character Development: From Killface's scared and abused secretary to the badass assassin out to kill him at all costs by Season 2.
  • Depraved Bisexual: Apparently, though it could have been a ruse.
  • Geisha: Dresses as a geisha midway through the first episode, believing it to be an order from Killface, and keeps this look for the rest of the first season.
    Killface: ...I didn't know we were doing the geisha thing again.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Declares revenge on Killface after suffering years of abuse from him.
    Valerie: Revenge shall be mine!

    Sinn 

Sinn/Hooper

Voiced by: Kelly Jenrette

Sinn is Killface's black, female (probably) robot servant who has a mechanical arm and refers to Killface as "sire".


  • Ambiguously Human: The only tells that she is a robot are her distinctly robotic voice and mechanical arm.
  • Artificial Limbs: She has a robotic right arm, to replace one that was ripped off by Killface.
  • Bald Woman: She has no hair on her head, possibly due to her being at least part-cyborg.
  • Bi the Way: Falls for the tomboyish Val late in Season 2.
  • Character Death: Killed in the penultimate episode of the series.
  • Dramatic Unmask: At the start of the second arc of Season 2, she takes off her white helmet to reveal her identity to the world on national TV.
  • Fan Disservice: She appears naked, covering her breasts seconds before she is shot to death by Val.
  • Interspecies Romance: Her relationship with Wately, the human-lobster hybrid. If she's a robot then her relationship with the human Valerie could also count.
  • No Kill Like Overkill: Shot multiple times by Valerie after she seduced her into a gay relationship.
  • Parental Substitute: Is shocked to discover that Simon (possibly; who knows) thinks of her as a mother figure.
  • Sweet Polly Oliver: After Killface fires her, she disguises herself as "Hooper", a male Xtacle. Played with by the fact that she made virtually no effort to actually conceal her gender, and the Xtacles (and Xander) just assume she's a guy despite any evidence to the contrary (up to and including literally seeing her with her pants down).
  • Unsettling Gender Reveal: To the Xtacles, who assumed that she was male. When she reveals herself as Sinn after starting the "Sisterhood of Chaos", they are shocked... that her name isn't really Hooper. It takes her spelling it out to them for them to realise she's a woman.

    Phil 

Phillip "Phil" Mazzone

Voiced by: Michael Bell

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/65c085843af3d8433feee080cd6f8b74.png
"Operation: Bad Habit is a go."

Phil is Killface's Program Manager working on the Annihilatrix. He moves in to Killface's apartment after his wife Lorraine kicks him out when he develops cancer.


  • Acquired Poison Immunity: Killface tries to poison him with Vitoxin, but expecting this, he has built up an immunity to the poison.

  • Back for the Dead: Returns and dies in Season 1's finale.

  • Character Death: Dies on Killface's patio in the final episode of Season 1.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Relatively minor when seen early on in the series, eventually Killface's assets are frozen and then turned over to him, putting him in control of everything Killface owns.
  • The Dog Bites Back: Wasn't abused as much as, say, Valerie, or Trent and Brent, but he certainly was at least mistreated. He ends up turning against Killface and threatening to sue him over his cancer, and later taking over his assets and selling the Annihilatrix for personal gain.
  • Fat Bastard: He's not actually, but Killface often calls him one, even after he's lost weight.
    Killface: Why, you formerly-fat bastard!
  • Hollywood Pudgy: Is slightly chubby, but loses even that slight obesity by his return in the season 1 finale.
  • The Topic of Cancer: Develops cancer from working on the Annihilatrix, which he uses to sue Killface.

    Taqu'il 

Taqu'il

Voiced by: Killer Mike

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/3b85c388aa4eece0d64b3ae242ed5330.png

A famous rapper and later Killface's running mate in the election during Season 2.


  • Ascended Extra: Appears mostly as a background character in Season 1, becomes a major character in Season 2.
  • Character Death: He dies in the final episode of the series.
  • Eyepatch of Power: During the more recent interviews and in later scenes from Season 2, he wears an eyepatch for some unknown reason.
  • Famous Last Words: "Nah, [bleep] that! I got this!"
  • 15 Minutes of Fame: While he's always been a popular musician, his fame presumably skyrockets when he becomes president of the United States... only to get overthrown by Mr. Ford almost immediately.
  • Gangsta Rap: His genre of music.
  • Method Acting: He trains for an upcoming movie about the FBI by interrogating a real hostage of the Department of Labour.
  • No Such Thing as Bad Publicity: Appears to be his viewpoint - he released a rap album titled "Ballocaust", to huge amounts of controversy.
  • Stupid Sacrifice: Played for Laughs in the series finale - he dives head-first into Cody 2's mouth without hurting it at all, leaving everyone puzzled at what he was attempting.

    Wendell: I'll call you a hearse. This is for Cody.

  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: He leaves the Department of Labour to work as a bodyguard for Killface during his election, but then goes to Xander Crews’ side once he realises that he likes the idea of being “Wendell X” after trying to escort Crews to the debate, only to eventually backstab Crews to rescue Antagone and try to tame her mutant child, whom he names Cody 2.

  • Fluffy Tamer: Wendell tames Cody 2, who he watches eat his own mother at birth, after deciding to establish some boundaries.

  • Jerkass: Believing Cody to be dead, he kills one of the Force 10 News workers. Upon realising Cody survived, he immediately pins the crime on Cody, and then takes Cody to court, sending him to prison in the process.
  • Machete Mayhem: He wields a machete when employed by Xander to kill Antagone's unborn child, and claims to the Xtacles to be "Steve from Machete Squad".

"Yeah, I got your poll right here..."

A fast-speaking, marble-mouthed middle-aged black man who appears throughout the series in a variety of jobs. He appears in "The Xtacles" living aboard the Xcalibur.


  • Action Pet: His first on-screen job is as a pet store owner, and he is somewhat shocked to learn that Simon is buying rabbits from him to train as this so they can fight to the death in an illegal "death rabbits" ring in Chinatown.
  • Arms Dealer: His second seen job, owning a gun store and selling a sniper rifle to Valerie.
  • Bedlam House: We see in a flashback that he worked as an ambulance driver for the mental hospital Nearl was a patient at. In the same flashback, he mentions that the hospital is shutting down due to budget cuts and he has to open a pet store.
  • Blatant Lies: When he works as Killface's polling consultant, he blatantly makes up the statistics he gives Killface, leading to them being wildly inaccurate.
  • Continuity Cameo: Appears in "Drift Problem", a Season 3 episode of Archer, as the new owner or Archer's pawned spy car, and later as an elevator repairman in Season 4's "Legs".
  • New Job as the Plot Demands: He takes all kinds of careers throughout the series. Lampshaded by Mr. Ford himself:
    Mr. Ford: My ass is everywhere.
    • He was a mental hospital worker, and took care of Nearl before Nearl became homeless.

    • Based on his appearance in Archer, he was also an elevator repairman.
  • Our Presidents Are Different: While he starts out as the secretary for Homeland Security, following the supposed deaths of Taqui'l, Stan and his entire cabinet, Mr. Ford rises to the position of President of the United States.

Simone

Simone is a homeless transvestite Xander met while living on the streets at the start of Season 2.

    Xander: (while having a doctor check his genitals for cancer, believing it to be sexually-transmitted after learning a woman he had sex with developed cancer) Oh, real quick, also check my ass. (camera focusses on a black-and-white picture of Simone) ...unrelated.
  • Disney Death: Assumed to be dead by Xander after he shot a flare gun at her, who subsequently dumps her body in a trash can and holds a momentary funeral for her. She nevertheless survives and returns in the finale.
  • Impossibly Cool Clothes: She ends up receiving Ronnie's pair of rocket pants, which she dubs her "Kickin' Pants" from Wendell.

Nearl Crews

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/4ce21fa3d51e7aebdef1361515741ce4.png
"Thank you Ronald Reagan! Your legacy is intact!"

Also called "Nearl the local retarded wino guy", Nearl is a mentally-disabled homeless man.


  • Ambiguous Disorder: It's never said exactly what mental disability he has, and he himself explains it being "profoundly retarded".
  • Boom, Headshot!: Possibly the most clear example, he is killed by a single shot through the head, administered by Ronnie to prevent the plot from becoming any more complicated.
  • Character Death: Killed in his focal episode, "Flowers for Nearl".
  • Crazy Homeless People: He has a mental disability and is often incoherent and has been homeless, living on the streets of town, since the mental hospital closed down due to insufficient funding.
  • Evil Twin: He is Xander's long-lost brother, and turns against him after being cured from his disability.
  • Long-Lost Relative: To Xander, since he was taken away at a young age.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Or he. When the Xtacles give him a shave and a haircut, he actually looks quite sophisticated, and bears more than a passing resemblance to Xander himself. Which makes sense, considering he's Xander's brother.
  • You Won't Feel a Thing: Before the Xtacles inject the brain chemical into his brain.
    Nearl: Is this going hurt?
    Xtacle: Oh, no, no, it's not gonna hurt at all, you just might feel just a little bit of... pressure!
    Nearl: (screaming)

Bobo: "Spell of enough! With the questions!"

A group of three LARPers who manage to get caught up in the chaos of the series. They are comprised of a halfling (Bobo T. Baggins), a wizard (Kevin), and an unknown knight.


  • Character Death: Kevin is sniped from afar by Valerie at the end of Season 1.
  • Do Not Call Me "Paul": Enforced by Kevin, who insists that Bobo only refers to him by his character name.
    Kevin: Don't use my real name!!
  • I Just Shot Marvin in the Face: Bobo accidentally fires the rocket launcher he was given by Simon at Killface as he renounces Christianity.
  • MacGuffin Guardian: Technically. A plot point in the second arc of Season 2 is multiple parties trying to regain control of the Annihilatrix, and Bobo ends up with the MacGuffin of the spare coupling when Simon, who he had complained as being emotionally distant, gave it to him as a gift. He eventually trades it off to Wendell for the chance to suck him off.
  • Punny Name: The halfling’s name is revealed to be “Bobo T. Baggins”.
  • Suddenly Sexuality: In Season 2, it's revealed that Bobo T. Baggins is gay (or at least bi) and has hooked up with both Simon and Wendell.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/70a556b78c837579961483a7cac5765e.png
"We're doing really great!"

A hooker whom Xander sleeps with and accidentally reveals his secret identity to, in the second episode and makes recurring appearances throughout.


  • Irony: She uses the five million Xander pays her to buy his house when he goes missing.
  • Hooker with a Heart of Gold: Inverted. She is one of the prostitutes Wendell hires with the nine thousand dollars Killface gave him to buy a presidential bus, and ends up robbing him of all his money (and his fried chicken - bawk bawk!) with the albino prostitute he requested.
  • Secret Keeper: She discovers Xander's secret identity when he uses it to hide the fact he was sleeping with her from his girlfriend. He pays her five million dollars (a year's worth of the Xtacles' entire salary) to keep it on the down-low.
  • Three-Way Sex: At the start of Season 2, she is shown in a threesome with Tacq’uil and Old Spice.

The Xtacles

    In General 

The Xtacles/The Deceptacles

Voiced by: Various

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/28387665a7d29b7c3981f3fd0520d823.png
"Deceptacles! ...More than you bargain for!"

The Xtacles are a workforce of super-soldiers created by Xander Crews to serve Awesome X. In Season 2, they end up betraying him and following Hooper (Sinn) instead, becoming the Deceptacles. A spinoff series starring the Xtacles taking place after Season 2 was planned, but cancelled after two episodes. It involved the Xtacles taking orders directly from President Stan. Only a few are named throughout the series, but more are given personalities and names in the spinoff.


  • Anti-Climactic Unmasking: Their faces are never shown in the main series barring one moment with Jimbo at the start of Season 2, but they casually walk around unmasked in "The Xtacles".
  • Evil Costume Switch: When Hooper takes control of the Xtacles in Season 2 and renames them the "Deceptacles", they get new black armour.
  • The Faceless: Their helmets mask their faces throughout the series, and the one scene featuring Jimbo unmasked only shows him from behind. Averted in their spinoff series.
  • Leitmotif: Attempted - the Deceptacles create their own theme tune, and sing it every chance they get. "Deceptacles! More than you bargain for!"
  • Leeroy Jenkins: When enacting the plan to capture Xander Crews in Season 1, just after receiving their jet boots, one of the Xtacles attempts this while jumping from the Xcalibur. Disappointingly, not before distributing the jet boots.
    Let's do thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis...
  • Robotic Reveal/Dramatic Unmask: Inverted in-universe. Xander always thought they were robots, not just armoured humans, so when one of them takes off their helmet to show him, he's absolutely shocked... that a robot could look so lifelike.
  • Palette Swap: When upgrading to the "Deceptacles", their armour goes from orange to a sleek black. They go back to the orange armour after Season 2.
  • Share Phrase: Although it spreads to the entire cast later, they termed "boosh!"
  • Your Head Asplode: Late in Season 1, their helmets are rigged with explosive devices so that Stan has the capability to blow their heads up each hour they don't have Xander Crews in captivity.

Ronnie

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/56199dc41cebd323aee9e9022b485f98.png
"Boobs. Baby's lunch bag."

An homoerotic Xtacle with a heavy Slavic accent. His voice and use of the phrase "come on, buddy" served as the basis for Boris, KGB assistant, in Archer.


  • Black Comedy Rape: Xander accuses him of having raped him when he was in captivity. Whatever it was, he certainly did something, as Xander was left without any clothes (barring the rocket pants he stole from Ronnie himself) for most of the rest of the season.
  • Character Death: Sacrifices himself midway through Season 2.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Dies saving Xander and Wendell from a giant falling pair of pants in Season 2.
  • Pants-Free: Xander steals his rocket pants early on, so he spends much of his screen time with no pants.
  • Single-Target Sexuality: Is of ambiguous sexuality, but shows a strange fixation for Xander Crews.
  • Uniformity Exception: Identifiable among the other Xtacles at first by his lack of pants, and then by his orange armour (as he was imprisoned when the Xtacles upgraded to the black “Deceptacle” armour).

    Jack Taggart 

Jack Taggart

Voiced by: Marshall Bell

The leader of the Xtacles following Xander's disappearance, Jack Taggart is more or less the main character of "The Xtacles". Though he acts stern and by-the-book, he's just as incompetent as the rest of the Xtacles.


  • Abuse Mistake: He assumes Rapier Ape (a retired ape who wields a rapier) is an ape who has taken raping to a whole new level.
  • Mismatched Eyes: His right eye is a pale white and his left is blue.
  • Scars Are Forever: He has a scar running through his right eye.
  • Undying Loyalty: He is dangerously loyal to Xander's orders, even when the last order they received was to wait for more orders.

    A.L.E.X. 

A.L.E.X.

Voiced by: Rachael Harris

The holographic avatar aboard the Xcalibur who remained inactive before the series due to Bigby leaving his sandwich in her port, which he thought was a sandwich warmer. She is the voice of reason to the Xtacles, or would be if they ever listened to her.


  • A Form You Are Comfortable With: She insists that she doesn't have to look attractive to do her job. The Xtacles disagree.
    A.L.E.X.: It doesn't matter what I look like!
    Xtacles (simultaneously): Oh, it matters!
  • Only Sane Man: She is the only even remotely reasonable figure aboard the Xcalibur, and is rarely listened to.
  • Surrounded by Idiots: She's surrounded by the idiotic Xtacles.

    Chase Fontaine 

Chase Fontaine

Voiced by: Michael Ian Black

Another Xtacle, less responsible than Bigsby, who rarely follows orders. He is attracted to A.L.E.X., even though she's a holograph.
