The Mako Brothers

The Mako Brothers

Tombulus and Tymon Mako are the very definition of sibling rivalry. Driven by supreme jealousy, each brother's main goal is to take over the Earth before the other one does. The result? A big challenge for Sporty and Harley!


Tombulus Mako is an expert on mind control. Having honed his skills on his home planet of Skerndroth, he spent over a year on Earth setting up his plan. Hidden in a secret lab deep inside Seabird Studios, he managed to manipulate the minds of everyone in Horsecitty, and would have taken over the world (on Christmas Day, no less) if the superheroes hadn't stopped him.

Tombulus is quite fascinated by Earthlings (which is a small part of the reason why he wants to take them over). Aside from the fact that he wears Earthling clothes, he also likes to use their figures of speech in his everyday conversation.


Tymon Mako hatched ten minutes after Tombulus. He is the typical bratty little brother -- except most bratty little brothers don't take over whole planets just to prove a point.

The younger Mako has a flair for the dramatic. His motto is "Go big or go home," and he certainly did go big; he used an army of laser-shooting pegasi to attempt to bring the world to its knees. And, of course, he used stolen technology from his brother to help implement his evil plot. Anything to ruin Tombulus' day!

Sporty barely registered his taunts. She was too busy staring at the villain before her, scanning his yellow face. He looked like Tombulus Mako. He sounded like Tombulus Mako. But the more she looked, the more Sporty was certain that he wasn't Tombulus Mako.
“Tombulus,” she said. “Tombulus Mako.”
The villain's gleeful expression faded. “Where did you hear that name?” he asked, coldly.
Harley frowned. “That's your name, isn't it?”
“No,” said the villain who wasn't Tombulus Mako.
Sporty smiled. “Twin brother,” she said. “I should have known.”
