Minor Characters[]


  • Bug And Iggy - Joe McCarthy Elemtary's main bullies, especially in Amelia's class. They tend to act as a single entity, showing no individuality from one another, and with no complexity to their personality. They are classsic bullies, living to hurt and put down. It's possible that they were some of the bouys who picked on Reggie when he was a little kid. they're also cowards, true to the bully stereotype. After Reggie sneeze-barfed on them in "The Sneeze-Barf Incident", they mostly left everybody alone.
  • Owen - A slightly neurotic looking redhead who wears a permanently freaked out expression. He's one of the "weird ones" introduced first in "The Ugly Truth". He later becomes a bat-based superhero when Reggie recruits more kids for G.A.S.P.
  • Mary Violet - The most religious in the series, she's always nervous and shy. Her neurotic behavior, combined with her eagerness for religion and God's forgiveness may point to an over-bearingly religious family, scaring her with the consequences of God's judgement. She, too, is one of the "weird ones" introduced in "the Ugly Truth", and also joined G.A.S.P. in their time of need, becoming Ultra-Violet. Her superhero persona is notable, as rather than being an obvious extension of herself, it seems to be the opposite, agressive, composed, and with no thought of consequences. However, upon closer investigation, it may be an excuse for her to let go, an outlet.
  • Earth Dog - Reggie's cousin who is a poet. He's another "werd one" and a recruit for G.A.S.P. He's shown to be very sensitive and concerned with the earth's wellbeing.
  • Britney and the "substitute britneys"- Your stereotypical popular girls, they all look the same, except different heights. They tend to hate Amelia and her gang, but have a liking for pajama man.
