V-Boys, or, as they were formally known, V-Boys Defense Corps, were a group of American kids that V-Man recruited after returning to United States. The V-Boys served as V-man's all-purpose assistants. V-Man communicated with them using a two-way video link he wore as a ring on his finger. The stories never bothered to explain where he got it from.

Unlike the members of the V-Group (who weren't Father Duroc), V-Boys were aware of V-Man's secret identity. V-Boys themselves didn't have much in the way of individual identities. V-Man's second-in-command was identified as "Mickey," but that's about it.

Not so coincidentally, V-Boys Defense Corps was also the name of the real life V-Man fan club established by Fox Feature Syndicate.
