     Supercrash 
Real name Oliver Decosta, the hero of the story. A 14 year who just recently arrived at the city of Norandopolis. He joins Superhumans Inc after unintentionally making a name for himself by destroying a blob monster attacking the city.
  • Adorkable: Clumsy but an alright guy all around.
  • And Show It to You: Unintentionally pulled out Blobert's heart when fighting it.
  • Calling Your Attacks: If he wants to active his laser, he has to hold out his hands, clinch his fingers and shout "Super Duper Hyper Beam!".
  • Dragged into Drag: His dreams always seem to involve him getting turned into a girl or dressed up as one. Chapter 6 has him end up in a ballerina getup thanks to Superblam's douchery.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: He got the name Supercrash from Jude aka Superpouf after he pushed Oliver off a building again in their second day of training. The citizens of the city overheard Jude calling him this during his second fight with the blob monster and the name stuck. Oliver seems to have rolled with it regardless.
  • Freak Out!: The first time when he discovered superpowers as well as being introduced to Superhumans Inc and later finding out most of the staff of that company were working at his school.
  • Green Around the Gills: His first few times flying weren't the best. He eventually got over it and even invented a technique called the "Reverse Frog" in which he he fires his laser powers into the ground to blast off into the air.
  • Hulking Out: Somehow gained the power to turn into a huge muscled form being dubbed "Hypercrash" in chapter 6. Not only does this increase his strength but allows him to fire laser beams from his eyes!
  • Idiot Hair: His hair has an odd way of sticking up on it's own. It's even lampshaded during his date with Jennifer.
  • Improbable Weapon User: His main gimmick is that he generally fights using a road sign.
  • No Respect Guy: Somewhat, most of the heroes at Superhuman Inc think he pretty cool. But he gets no end of grief from Superpouf and the police of the city certainly don't care for him either.
  • Power Incontinence: If he doesn't clinch his fingers when doing his laser blast, the effect will backfire on him.
  • Wave Motion Gun: His main power is that he can fire huge laser blasts from his hands.
  • Weapon of Choice: A road sign that he usually grabs off the street.

Superhumans Inc.

     Superpouf 
Real name Jude. Supercrash's assigned mentor much to his charign as well as one of the older superheroes of the company.
  • Casanova Wannabe: Loves the ladies and hits on them whenever he gets the chance, with predictable results.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Cynical, has a indifferent attitude and belittles Oliver every chance he gets. But he does at least try to look out for him to the point he refuses to steal the Powersphere when Superblam suggested it.
  • Light 'em Up: Is able to fire a blinding flash from his belly button.
  • Noodle Incident: Whatever it was that caused him to lose half his powers. Apparently Darcel did it as punishment for something but it hasn't been revealed yet.
  • The Mentor: Assigned to train Oliver in his powers to which he does a pretty poor job of it.

     Superwhathisname 
Real name Edward. He's a superhero assigned to a northern city called Somma. However since that city is relatively peaceful, he usually commutes at Norandopolis when reinforcements are needed.
  • An Ice Person: Wields ice powers.
  • Mundane Utility: A in-depth file on him reveals he uses his powers at his job at a meat packing factory when not doing hero duties.
  • Power Incontinence: Isn't the best in wielding his power, mostly due to either something happening with his gloves (not insulated, hole in the glove, etc).
  • Nice Guy: Pretty pleasant person all around.
  • Speech Impediment: Has one that make it hard to most to understand what he's saying.

     Darcel 
CEO of Superhumans Inc. He had found the material which he dubs Heronium while working as a miner, becoming the first superhero of the world until the powers wore off at age 18. He then mined the material and built his company around it.
  • Genre Savvy: He knows that most of his heroes will be going to school. So he built a school that's staffed by some of his workers which will allow heroes such as Supercrash to respond to threats without have to resort to excuses.
  • Hero Insurance: The reason he charges a fee for teens to join his company. Most of it goes toward repairs that the heroes inevitably cause during their fights.
  • Heroes "R" Us: Started his company based around this.
  • Noodle Incident: Whatever it was that forced him to take away half of Superpouf's powers.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: For the most part, he's greedy but a fair boss.
  • Retired Badass: Implied, he may not do hero work, but he's a pretty sharp businessman regardless.

     Irene 
Secretary of Superhumans Inc
  • Blow You Away: Her main powers are wind based.
  • Mundane Utility: Using her powers to help open a door to Darcel's office, citing that they're pretty heavy.

A nurse at Superheroes Inc. Still don't know her name yet.
  • Action Girl: Manage to wrestle and strap down a panicking Oliver when he found out she was the school nurse.
  • Everyone Calls Him "Barkeep": Due to the story not naming her yet, she's just simply known as the Loving and Caring Nurse.
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: She's a nurse and...kinda loving and caring. To be fair, Oliver isn't exactly very helpful whenever they meet.

     Superblam 
Real name Simon. He was the superhero that crashed into Oliver's house when his mother and he had just moved in at the start of the comic. And it was his orb that Oliver finds that leads him to becoming Supercrash. He disappears through most of the story but comes back later in the 5th chapter.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Freely admits he doesn't care about Superhumans Inc or that he'll be branded a criminal. He just wants his powers back by any means necessary.
  • Jerkass: Revealed to be one when we finally meet him later in the comic. He gives Oliver no end of grief with his pranks and comments. Even Irene admits she doesn't like him, that he wasn't the best hero of the city and was actually glad he disappeared. Then he goes on and steals Jude's powersphere to get his powers back and almost kills him by kicking him off a cliff. Keep in mind, Jude and he are suppose to be best friends.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: During his Evil Gloating, he mentions that he loves to tell people to "Send Him The Bill" right in earshot of Hillary who remembers that he was the one who crashed into her house when she first moved to the city. Cue her grabbing a rocket launcher and firing it straight at him.
  • The Bully: When it comes down to it, the guy just like picking on the weak and not afraid to screw over others for his own benefit. He even freely admits it when he has Supercrash pinned down.
  • The Bus Came Back: He disapperes after the first chapter and doesn't show up till chapter 5.

    • Likewise forces Oliver to enroll in a public school after he accidentally blows up a balcony while messing with a gun she was trying to teach him how to use, ironically enough. Even more ironic, it's a school that Darcel had built to give his superheroes a cover for their activities.

  • More Dakka: Due to working at a military expo, she got a lot surplus of weapons as a welcome present.
  • Unusually Uninteresting Sight: Vector manages to locate Oliver's house and goes to it driving a mecha. When she answers the door and tells him Oliver isn't home, she doesn't even bat an eye at the sight. Thinking him as just one of Oliver's "weird friends".
  • Villainous Rescue: Well relative to Supercrash since she's against him. But her milita arrives just as Demo, Hack and Combo have Supercrash cornered as he's trying to escape Vector, claiming he's theirs. This causes both sides to start a fight and allow Supercrash to slip away in the chaos.

  • Alpha Bitch: A popular girl at school though honestly not known if she truly is one.

  • Expy: Supposedly of Mary Jane.

Real name Julius Van Vector, leader of the Vector Army. He seems to have a major grudge against superheroes and targets Supercrash in particular for his plans.

     General Janie 
The Vector army second in command and Vector's sister. She goes in disguise at school as Jennifer.

  • Cool Shades: Wears a pair.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: While she manages to find out Oliver is Supercrash, she accidentally drops her communicator which Superpouf later finds on the ground (though luckily can't bypass her password, keeping her identity safe) who later follows the henchgirls she beat up back to the Vectordome.

  • Oh, Crap!: When Supercrash shows her, in her Jennifer guise, that they found the Vectordome and him and several other heroes are about to raid it.
  • Right in Front of Me: How's she introduced into the comic: spying from a manhole on Supercrash's latest victor against the recent blob monster that attack the city. Albeit right in front of Superpouf and him. Not surprisingly they try to follow her, but she manages to escape in a rocket vehicle.
  • The Dragon: The second in command of the Vector army. Though some of the elite of the army aren't happy about it.
