We’ve gone through quite a few members of the No Brand Heroes in this series, but honestly the team has a very deep bench, and doing write ups on every single one of them would take forever. In this article, we’re going to cover the heroes who aren’t Duct Tape Boy, Greenboy, the Gardening Ninja, or Magical Girl Girl.
Some of these heroes have played vital, main roles over the years, while others have only played minor parts. But each and every single one of them is a full fledged member of the No Brand Heroes.
The biggest enemy every faced by the No Brand Heroes is also technically the smallest. The evil Executron has come after our heroes time and time again, usually in an attempt to take over the world, conquer the convention, or just cause havoc in general. He’s also tried to give out advice to people, and for a while actually sat on a convention committee.
One of the more recent recruits to join the illustrious No Brand Heroes is none other than Magical Girl Girl. Magical Girl Girl is… a magical girl? I mean, it’s kind of right there in the name. We’re not exactly making this hard.
With the Gardening Ninja absent, and the current Greenboy out on assignment more often than not, she’s become Duct Tape Boy’s frequent companion since showing up. So let’s talk about how she joined the team, and what exactly her role is.
So this week we’ve talked about Duct Tape Boy and Greenboy, so it’s about time we got to another well known member of the No Brand Heroes – the Gardening Ninja. While a “vital” member of the team (at least according to him), it’s rare to see him voluntarily go out on a mission.
And when you think about it, he’s actually kind of useless.
Greenboy (or ‘Green Boy’ depending on who writes it down) is one of the No Brand Heroes and Duct Tape Boy’s sidekick. But Greenboy isn’t just a single person, but a mantle passed down over the ages from one sidekick to another — and it goes back much further than you’d expect.
So in this ongoing trip through the lore of the No Brand Heroes, why don’t we sit down for a minute and explain the vague-ish history and legacy of the Greenboys.
Duct Tape Boy and the No Brand Heroes have fought off many foes over the years, but hardly any were as strange as the Egyptian Space Mummies. Apparently they are both from Egypt and from Space, and no that doesn’t make sense to us either. When pressed, the Egyptian Space Mummies admitted that they’re mostly from Space, but are a quarter Egyptian on their mother’s side.
We’re concerned that they all seem to have the same mother.
Our mascot Duct Tape Boy, superhero for the masses, and the rest of the No Brand Heroes have been fighting crime and saving the world (when everyone else is too busy to do it) for quite some time. Back in 2006, a short documentary was made about Duct Tape Boy, where some of his compatriots reminisce about their times working with him — including the then-current Greenboy.
(There have been quite a few Greenboys over the millennia.)
So sit back, enjoy the nostalgia, and learn a few things about our adhesive hero. Hopefully you can forgive the sound and video quality, since this was produced in the internet-beforetimes.

So you may have noticed things look a little bit different around these parts. Right now we’re giving the website a good old overhaul for the 2018 convention, and that means a fresh new look!
While we pick through the various bits, please let us know if we made a mistake or two though. We’re doing our best, so we ask you to please hang in there. Our mascot is made from duct tape for a reason.
