Needs a Better Description.

This article is in need of some MAJOR Wiki Magic. If any tropers would like to contribute, feel free.


  • Adults Are Useless: In G-Man's origin, Captain Thunderman was knocked out at the start of the fight, and G-Man and his friends defeat the villain.
  • Alternate Timeline: One story arc involves the heroes going to a parallel Earth. Mr. G is proud of his sons, Billy Demon is more powerful, etc.

  • Big Brother Instinct: When a strike team of Suntroopers blasts down G-Man, Great Man attacks them head-on.
    Great Man: You think I'm just gonna let you keep blasting my brother just because you're a Suntrooper?
  • Brought to You by the Letter "G": G-Man and Great Man both have "G" on their chests.
  • Clothes Make the Superman: Suntrooper's powers come from his uniform.
    • And Sparky's powers come from his shoes.
    • And, of course, G-Man's magic cape and Great Man's magic belt.
  • Color-Shifter Default Form: When he isn't consciously controlling what color he is, Tanman's colors are in a constant flux.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Cool Wraps is literally cursed with his powers.
    • Subverted with Parallel Earth!Billy Demon. The regular Billy starts saying that despite his enhanced powers, he wouldn't want to be a monster all the time. Then his counterpart reverts to human form.
    Prime!Billy Demon: ...My world sucks.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Great Man and Kid Thunder
  • Domino Mask: G-Man had one for a time, since he needed glasses. During the whole "alternate reality" mix-up, he says he switched to contacts.

  • Five-Man Band
  • Getting Crap Past the Radar: During the most recent arc, when Mr. G crashes his car driving his pregnant wife to the hospital.
    Cop: Looks like you had an accident.
    Mr. G: Yeah, we got two more accidents at home.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Great Man can be a real Jerkass and frequently bullies G-Man.
    • Took a Level in Kindness: His jerkassness seems to have gone down after almost dying when G-Man's cape exploded in "Cape Crisis".
  • Kid Hero
  • Kryptonite Factor: The magic from G-Man's cape and Great Man's belt causes Suntrooper's uniform to malfunction.
    • Later revealed that just magic in general has that effect.
  • Origin Story: G-Man made himself a magic cape from their old magic blanket so he could be a hero like his friends. Great Man took one of the leftover scraps and made himself a belt.
    • According to his character description, no one knows Billy Demon's origin. He just showed up at school like that one day. During the alternate reality incident, we hear him discuss this with his counterpart...
    Prime!Billy Demon: Obviously the traumatic events that made us into Billy Demon played out a little differently here.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: Suntrooper Captain Davis helps deceive the other Suntroopers to fulfill his promise of making sure the G-brothers return safely.
