Codename: Kids Next Door

Xtreme Sector V Universe Part 1

Greetings, all ye fans Powerpuff Girls and Codename: Kids Next Door, it is I your old pal Antoni here with another written entry. As someone who has been growing up with Cartoon Network ever since I was four or five years old, it should come off as no surprise that The Powerpuff Girls and Codename: Kids Next Door are my personal favorite Cartoon Network superhero comedy action shows starring unconventional casts of characters. In The Powerpuff Girls’ case, it has three five-year-old superpowered young ladies who can kick lots of butts while still looking cute and lovely. In Codename: Kids Next Door, it has five tech-savvy pre-teens who use their skills in combat, artillery, and teamwork to combat adult tyranny while having a lot of fun doing so. From seven years old up until now, these were and will always be my staple Cartoon Network shows next to Teen Titans 2003, Dexter’s Laboratory, and Samurai Jack to look forward to not only for the sake of kicking back, relaxing, and enjoying each action-packed and fun moment that goes on with these shows but I can also marvel at how tight the writing was, how the voice actors embody each of their most iconic roles, and how these shows manage to balance action, comedy, and drama so effectively all thanks to the brilliant minds found respectively in Craig McCracken and Tom Warburton. Now, you are also wondering, what do these two shows have in common for me? If you have been reading my posts based on my favorite six-person teams in animation, especially when I gave a lot of special mention to the six-person superhero teams, you will automatically realize that I absolutely adore the teamed-up Rowdyruff Boys and Powerpuff Girls and Sector V plus Katie the Island Girl. Sure, these are mostly headcanon-based but I always figured that when it comes to superhero teams, six is the lucky number that shows stability, great interpersonal dynamics, and mad teamwork skills that could give even the Justice League, the Avengers, and the X-Men a run for their money. Besides, having a ragtag bunch of kids below the age of 12 saving the world from evil shows that children can be very resilient and can put their mind into anything they want to accomplish. Moreover, thanks to such awesome artists such as Bleedman, PurfectPrincessGirl, and PrincessCallyie, just to name a few, I have pretty much gotten myself into the hype that is multiple-universe building in which different characters from different fandoms co-exist in one universe. This has also gotten me to beg this particular question. What if all of the main members of Team Xtreme and Sector V co-existed in one universe? The concept might be ludicrous to some people given how each show is formatted and written. However, with a lot of imagination, creativity, and curiosity, it could be fun and awesome to have different characters finding out what makes them similar and different and just exist in a sort of weird yet wonderful harmony. As you can tell from the title above, I am mainly taking a look at the main six members of Team Xtreme, Sector V, and their main allies. What will follow is a mini-profile for each team in terms of how they were in the show’s run at the time until this very day and even, my most favorite, my most beloved OTPs from each team. Additionally, I have also updated some of the birthdays I have for each team member as well as their ages, and do not fret, for the next written entry will be saved for my other favorite thing to write about, which is the list of fan-children that I and some of my good friends have come up with. With that said, let us get cracking, ladies and gentlemen. Team Xtreme (Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles) Saving Townsville and the world since 1998, we have Team Xtreme which is a result of The Rowdyruff Boys and The Powerpuff Girls joining forces after the boys not only befriended the girls and realizing that they can work magnificently together as a superhero team but also the fact that Brick, Butch, and Boomer lovingly accepted Miss Sara Bellum as their own mother and eventually having Mr. Green join the family fray as their most beloved father. Ever since then, Brick, Butch, and Boomer have grown up to be the upstanding, charismatic, strong, handsome gentlemen that they are today and Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles have grown up to be the dynamic, brilliant, gorgeous, and athletic ladies that they are. They are not going to retire the superhero business anytime soon, seeing that it is their job and their livelihood, and their children are also doing fine of a job ensuring that they use their powers for good, therefore keeping Townsville and the world safe from all forms of harm. Moreover, the children are having the torches being passed on to them, thus making sure that their parents’ exciting legacy will live on in Townsville’s hearts. This superhero team has an exceptional ensemble with Brick’s proud and confident leadership, Butch’s brute strength and fierceness, Boomer’s complete athleticism combining super strength, unwavering endurance, lightning speed, and a great sense of humor, Blossom’s overall savviness, Buttercup’s unwavering endurance, and Bubbles’ peerless physical flexibility and pacifist nature gelling this team together until the end of time. Brick “The Bludgeoner” Green Age: 28 Birthday: March 12, 1991 Position in Team Xtreme: The Determined Leader Special Powers: Pyrokinesis and Fire Manipulation Six Words to Best Describe Brick: Determined, Large-and-in-Charge, Confident, Street Smart, Protective, Intrepid Status: Married to Buttercup since 2011.

Favorite Six-Person Cartoon Network Hero Teams Go!

Greetings, fans of The Powerpuff Girls, Codename: Kids Next Door, and Teen Titans, Antoni here with another written entry. If you saw my post regarding my favorite six-person teams from some of my favorite shows, you would already know that Team Xtreme which is my headcanon name for the Rowdyruff Boys and the Powerpuff Girls as a superhero team from “The Powerpuff Girls”, Sector V plus Katie from “Codename: Kids Next Door”, and the Teen Titans from Jump City plus Terra and Titans East plus Sarasim were my top entries. You can tell how much I admired these groups because, as you can tell, I grew up watching The Powerpuff Girls, Codename: Kids Next Door, and Teen Titans seeing that these were and will always be my favorite Cartoon Network shows of all time next to Samurai Jack, Courage the Cowardly Dog, Dexter’s Laboratory, Duck Dodgers, and I Am Weasel that also manage to hold a very special place in my heart. Today, I am going to sort out the who’s who in these particular groups, some based on some of the shows’ canon and some based on my headcanons, with their current ages. Get ready to kick some villain butt for the sake of truth, justice, liberty, and, in some cases, the last slice of pizza. Team Xtreme (My Headcanon Name for The Rowdyruff Boys and The Powerpuff Girls as one Superhero Team from “The Powerpuff Girls”) Team Xtreme Members: Brick, the 27-year-old fearless leader who rules with an iron fist, heaps of charisma, and is fiercely protective of his teammates. His special power is his signature fire breath and is a pyrokinesis user. Butch, the 27-year-old brutish muscle who is unafraid to use his Herculean strength to beat up criminals and monsters and help his teammates out in any situation. His special powers are his Tornado Punch and building a forcefield to protect and his teammates. Boomer, the 27-year-old lovable dumb muscle who is the comic relief of the group, loves to tell a good joke and has the strength of Heracles, the combat prowess of Theseus, and the charm of an Apollo. He is a lightning manipulator and can form objects out of raw energy. Blossom, the 26-year-old tech-savvy, articulate, book smart brainy beauty whose wisdom and cool sense of intellect is a great asset to the team. Her special power is her signature ice breath as well as being a cryokinesis user. Buttercup, the 26-year-old rambunctious brawler who is unafraid to let her fists fly and who is any criminal’s worst nightmare. She is a geomancer as well as being a telekinesis user. Bubbles, the 25-year-old sweet, innocent pacifist who ensures that there is unity, good vibes, and great collaboration happening in Team Xtreme. She bears sound-related attacks and is a water manipulator. My love for Brick, Butch, Boomer, Blossom, Buttercup, and Bubbles as one fine superhero team who keeps Townsville safe knows no bounds because of the many character dynamics that can occur. Combining Brick’s large-and-in-charge big brother personality, Butch’s brawny tough guy attitude, Boomer’s lovable dumb muscle funnyman antics, Blossom’s intellect, Buttercup’s fiery attitude, and Bubbles’ innocence as the pacifist is sufficient to show how much strength there is in numbers and being proof positive that with great power comes great positivity, which is the mantra they have learned ever since they were kindergarteners. As adults, they uphold this principle, as it is passed down to their children. Main Team Xtreme Ships: Brick x Buttercup (Brickercup) Boomer x Blossom (Blossoomer) Butch x Bubbles (Butchubbles) Butch x Blossom (Blossutch) Boomer x Bubbles (Boomubbles) Team Xtreme Next Generation: The Brickercup Children (Brad, Bruce, Bailee, Bea, Brett, Bridget, Baxter, Blaster, Brina, Blaze, Brent, Brooke, Brianna, Bane, Bethany, and Bona) The Blossoomer Children (Bloom, Brittney, Beau, Brian, Becky, Belladonna, Basil, and Bramley) The Butchubbles Children (Brandon, Buddy, Brea, Betty, Blithe, Bibi, Blaine, and Blair) The Blossutch Children (Bernadette, Brendan, Blake, Bradley, Belle, Brenda, Belinda, and Barbara) The Boomubbles Children (Bailey, Barley, Bonnie, Brittany, Ben, Birdie, Bali, and Belina) Sector V (Codename: Kids Next Door) Sector V Members: Nigel “Numbuh 1” Uno, the 28-year-old intellectual, articulate, savvy leader of the group who rules with precision and focus. Hoagie P. “Numbuh 2” Gilligan, the 28-year-old lively, enthusiastic comic relief of the group who loves to crack jokes. Kuki “Numbuh 3” Sanban-Beatles, the 27-year-old lovable, innocent pacifist of the group who loves to ensure unity. Wallabee “Numbuh 4” Beatles, the 28-year-old tough, impulsive, wild muscle of the group who loves to dive head-on into battle. Abigail “Numbuh 5” Lincoln-Uno, the 28-year-old cool, calm, collected brain of the group who uses reason to get through anything. Katie “Numbuh 6” Strong-Gilligan, the 27-year-old athletic, gorgeous, well-rounded sixth ranger of the group who is an exceptional combination of beauty, brains, and brawn. Canonically-speaking there have been five members in Sector V and Katie was only an illusion created by Chester to mess with Nigel’s brain. However, since this is my Codename: KND headcanon, Katie is real, alive, and well, hails from Hawaii, and was and will always be the sixth Sector V operative who has been of great use to the team. You are probably wondering why did I not put Lizzie Devine as the sixth operative and instead favored Katie. That is because I cannot stand how shrill, clingy, whiny, and vexatious Lizzie was as a character, especially when she was adamant for having Nigel to herself, and though she had her moments of competence, I highly doubt that she would ever be a reliable KND operative. Getting back to the main six members of Sector V at hand, while all five members show a great deal of interpersonal chemistry and wonderful group dynamics, adding Katie to the mix would prove to be more beneficial since, at least in my headcanon, she is an athletic, intuitive beauty who can fight like a beast with fierceness and precision. Thus, combining Nigel’s articulate leadership, Hoagie’s lovable goofball personality, Wallabee’s toughness, strength, and occasional foolhardiness, Abby’s…
