Ron Wilson, Bus Driver, is a secondary protagonist in Disney's 2005 movie, Sky High. He was played by Kevin Heffernan.

Biography

Ron Wilson was born the son of two superheroes, so he might have been expected to have had multiple superpowers. However, as Ron aged, he never did acquire any powers at all. It is likely that he attended Sky High, and studied to become a “sidekick.” Instead of becoming an unpowered sidekick, Ron became a bus driver for the school.

Ron has thrown himself into his role as a bus driver, taking great pride in the service that he provides. He keeps his bus immaculately clean, and his uniform neatly pressed. He tries to be friendly to all Sky High students, though he feels most drawn to Will Stronghold.

After the events of Royal Pain’s attempt to kidnap the staff and students of Sky High, Ron fell into a vat of toxic waste, and gained the power to grow to giant size. Now, he works for the mayor of Maxville, protecting the city from giant robots. However, even then, it is seen that Ron is still wearing his bus driver uniform, suggesting that he has not given up his prized position as bus driver.

Physical Appearance

Ron is roughly 37 years old. He stands 6’1” tall, and weighs in at about 185 lbs. He has fair skin, black hair and brown eyes.

Whenever he is seen, he is proudly wearing his Sky High bus driver’s uniform, which consists of white pants, white shirt with labels, and a khaki tie. He sometimes includes a beige Sky High staff jacket.

Personality

Ron is nice,friendly and helpful. Even though he doesn't have any super powers, he likes to help Will.

Powers and Abilities

Grown to giant size

During the bulk of the movie, Ron is conspicuous for not having powers. However, at the end of the movie, he fell into a vat of toxic waste, and gained the power to grow to giant size.

Relationships

Will Stronghold

Ron has a special reverence for Will. Will is the child of two superheroes, like Ron, but he is the son of two very famous superheroes, the Commander and Jet Stream. As such, Ron treats Will as special, and would very much like to be his friend.

Most everyone else

Ron considers himself to be important, as a Sky High bus driver, and as such he does not bother cultivating friendships with the other students.

Lash and Speed

The bully duo of Lash and Speed consider Ron to be a source of fun. Because of his lack of powers, they feel free to play tricks on him, like when Lash stole his cap.
