Description[]

"Boomer is a Hercules beetle. Boomer Coleoptera, is his name. He works for Felix Flick, he's the muscle, he just does it for the money. I mean, he, you know, he's basically a pretty decent insect and dreams of uh-- has big dreams. Big dreams that aren't necessarily in the "Thumping People's Gourds" category. He fancies himself as an actor. He thinks he's got a legitimate future on the stage. Now, the main stage that he knows about is an abandoned puppet theater that, you know, is in the backyard. But that's what kind of motivates him. And, uh, he's a great, big, physical presence, got the gigantic Hercules beetle horn stickin' out of his head, and he's dressed like a thug. He's not dressed nicely like the other ones. He's got like, the black leather jacket-- (Travis: Almost like a thug costume.) Yeah, yeah! And a, like a porkpie hat with his horn stickin' through it. And yeah, he's a big-- at first glance is very menacing, very scary looking. But inside he's just like a big bowl of warm jello." Clint McElroy

Boomer Coleoptera is a large Hercules beetle, and as such, his large stature and menacing horns make him seem very big and intimidating at first. He serves as muscle in Felix Flick 's gang, but really only does so for the money as his true desire is to be on stage. He collects monologues thrown out by Susan Little and often performs them at Garbanzo Buglass's burlesque show. He dreams of one day opening his own theater and perform his own plays, as acting is his one and only motivation and focus for his life.

Character art details

He's not as well-dressed as other members of Felix Flick's gang, and is dressed is somewhat of a thug costume. He wears a leather jacket and a porkpie hat, which his horn sticks straight through.

History[]

Big Little Crimes[]

Boomer is first introduced when he arrives at the storm drain as part of Felix Flick's entourage. Felix requests that Charger be paid for turning in Car-Go Jones, and when his brother, Marty, admits he doesn't have the payment, he defers to one of his henchmen, Speed. Furious that Speed would betray their child, Dylan Little, Car-Go lunges to attack. He scratches the paint over one of Speed's headlight eyes. Felix commands Boomer to tie Car-Go up, and Boomer does so, however reluctantly. Car-Go attempts to appeal to his better nature, but Boomer obeys, claiming that it's nothing personal because he needs the money.

Car-Go attempts to transform and escape before he can be tied up, but Boomer easily picks him up, mid-transformation and completely incapacitated. For attacking one of his men and attempting to escape, Felix threatens to remove Car-Go's face so that he can't become sentient, but Minetta, his "girlfriend", leaps out of the car to protest. Felix obliges her this time, but tells Boomer to toss him over the edge into the sewer instead.

As Boomer takes him to the edge, Car-Go pleads for him to let him go. Boomer over-acts and encourages Car-Go to do the same in order to sell it better. He gives acting advice in finding something truly scary to call back to, but they really are on the clock here as Felix tells him to get on with it. As they look down into the dark sewer below, they spot a chunk of old wood floating along the water. Boomer not to subtly hints that Car-Go should hitch a ride, and as Felix leaves with Marty, they spot him handing Marty a dossier. Then it's over the edge into the darkness he goes, but not before one last wink at Minetta.  

Relationships[]

The Tiny Thieves[]

Car-Go Jones[]

One of Dylan Little's Car-Mo-Bot toys gone rogue to take down Felix Flick. He and Boomer have had a few run-ins in the past when Boomer has been sent out to put an end to Car-Go's snooping. He knows that Car-Go is an honest man, though, and much like the rest of his job, he isn't fond of what Felix tells him to do, so when he's told to throw Car-Go down the storm drain to drown, Boomer takes pity on him. Similarly, Car-Go knows that Boomer isn't suited to the violent life he leads, and pleads with him to let him live. Boomer later joins Car-Go's mission as an inside man to steal the roll of quarters and take down Felix Flick.

Felix Flick[]

Boomer works under Felix Flick as hired muscle. Felix thinks of Boomer as purely dumb muscle.

Minetta[]

A music box figurine and Felix Flick's love interest. Boomer has known Minetta for a long time, and knows that she's a good egg. He's pretty much the only one who knows how fond Minetta is of Car-Go Jones.

Quotes[]

Big Little Crimes[]

  • (Felix: Boomer, you don't need to explain your whole plan to me.) No, I know, I know. But it makes for good narrative flow, boss.

Trivia[]

  • He enjoys reading books left out around the Littles' house, but it takes him a month to read a page because they're so long.
  • He is extremely dedicated to his craft, going so far as to perform his act as to the best of his ability to a completely empty theater.

References[]

  1. Although it is a popular theory that Boomer is a Battle Master Fighter, he does not use any of his subclass's features. Clint asks if there is "anyone to goad" in Episode 4: Breaking and Entering, but it is unclear if this refers to the Goading Attack maneuver from the Battle Master subclass. He also uses "Menacing" in Episode 6: The Great Chase, but the description he recites indicates that he is using the UA feat Menacing, not the Menacing Attack maneuver.
