Jackson Jones is the newest member of the team. Jackson was an excellent football player- and one of the bullies- at the beginning of the first book. After he got his braces, Jackson lost his popularity and his place on the football team, due to his headgear not fitting inside the helmet.
The nano-bytes upgraded his braces into mechanical masterpiece with the ability to transform into any object at Jackson's will, though controlling them is sometimes a hard task. (Exp. In the boy's restrooms when Brett Bealer gave him a swirly, due to Jackson revealing an embarrassing secret, his braces transformed into "four metallic lobster claws")
Jackson lives with his dad and his older brother Chaz. His mother passed away before the story begins.
His father always tells Jackson to be a man, and his brother constantly teases him. During the first book, Chaz and Jackson come to understand each other, and Mr. Jones shows that he cares for Jackson when he stands up for Jackson. (Principal Devahen was considering putting Jackson through fifth grade again.) Mr. Jones seems to finally understand Jackson when Jackson reveals that he is a 'loser'.
Julio "Flinch" Escala (Friend, Teammate) Edit
In the first book "National Espionage, Rescue, and Defense Society" Flinch disagrees with Jackson being on the team, but for the rest of the series, they are seen as friends. They also have things in common. For instance, they both don't have an interest in math. They also don't really act like nerds.
Matilda "Wheezer" Choi (Friend, Teammate)Edit
In the first book, Wheezer automatically wants to kill Jackson when he creeps into the Playground, and has an excited glint in her eyes while saying so. Deeper in the book, Jackson makes her, Flinch, and Gluestick laugh. Later on in the series, it is shown that she thinks he's really funny. In book three, Jackson explains to the Hyena how becoming a cheerleader is Wheezer's worst nightmare. Earlier he calls Wheezer a spaz, which causes her to put him in a headlock. However, Wheezer asked Brand what kind of a cheerleader would put their "friend" in a headlock.
Duncan "Gluestick" Dewey (Friend, Teammate)Edit
Gluestick was the first one on the team to truly accept Jackson's arrival. He was also the only one who explained to Jackson why everyone hated him. Afterwards, Jackson realized that all he was is a bratty kid who only cared about being popular and punishing those who weren't. In book two, Jackson kindly explains to Duncan that he relies too much on technology, and tells him to "man up". This speech, and the following adventures/self-discovery, are what brings him to punch Heathcliff.
The Hyena was first hired by Dr. Jigsaw in book 1 to kidnap scientists. She later asked Jackson for his help to stop Jigsaw. She was Jackson's first and second kiss (Book 1), and thinks of him as 'cute' and 'sexy'. Chaz, Jackson's older brother, and Jackson's dad both think Mindy is Jackson's girlfriend when they first meet her.
