Expendable Lad's gloves
Plural: pairs of Expendable Lads' gloves
Expendable Lad was a famous sidekick back in the Silver Age of Twilight. Of course, his name wasn't really Expendable Lad it was Buffy or Binkley or Sparrow or something. Nobody ever really remembered his name; all they remembered was his terrible, terrible luck. Be it being shot with a freezing ray, being reverse aged to a toddler, being turned into a newt, being launched to the moon, or any number of horrible, weird, and outright absurd things that seemed to happen to him on a nearly monthly basis. Many people think his costume didn't help, either. Regardless of what abilities they conferred, the Concentric Red Rings of Power were universally regarded as a bad idea.

These are his gloves. It was generally accepted that he had a mean right hook, even though he never really got a chance to demonstrate it. Still, through the power of legend, these gloves are imbued with the knowledge of 14 kung-fu masters. Sadly, this doesn't seem to help you all that much.

Other Uses

  • When your sidekick deals damage:
You give <sidekick> a deafening round of applause... so deafening, in fact, that it deals X damage and cracks several windows... might want to curb your enthusiasm a bit.
<sidekick> leaps into the fray like Expendable Lad and lands an ill-considered jab for Y damage.
<sidekick> jumps out in front of the attack, absorbing Z damage meant for you. Just like Expendable Lad... sniff


  • X is equal to the total damage the sidekick inflicted that round. Foe's Sonic resistance/weakness applies.
  • When bought: The shopkeeper accepts your stars in exchange for a battle-scarred pair of gloves. All the other heroes' sidekicks are going to be so jealous!
