Plot

Hughie Campbell was shocked when he saw the remains of his beloved scattered all over the street. He realized that there is a second side to superheroism, which does not look very beautiful in public and therefore is hushed up. Over the years, he got used to the fact that superheroes are everywhere. People have abilities and they are trying to become leaders so that the world knows them.

Deciding to declare war on such an attitude towards people, Hughie negotiates with lawyers who defend the interests of superheroes. But Campbell knows very well that his rights have been violated. Instead of an apology, he receives a bank check, but this outcome does not suit him. He decides to join Billy Butcher – a few years ago his wife disappeared without a trace after she was raped by Homelander.

Billy also hates superheroes, but most of all – Homelander. He is so important, in a suit that looks like a superman outfit, Homelander has similar abilities. People adore him, they consider him a guiding star, send letters and simply do not react to conversations about his dishonor. There is no one better than Homelander, he is number one in the superhero team.

Butcher is no doubt willing to sacrifice his life just to get revenge on Homelander. It is best to kill him and a couple of supers. Hughie is happy to join him, but it doesn’t work the first time.

Campbell doesn’t think all superheroes are the same. This is especially proven by his meeting with Annie, a superhero girl who recently became popular.

Several more people join Butcher and Hughie. Everyone has a grudge against superheroes and wants to reveal the truth to people. Hughie may be right, and not all supers are the same, but every hero will defend the camp they belong to. The main enemy of the boys is still Homelander. And having learned that Billy’s wife is alive, the boys need him alive…

Interesting Facts

  1. Antony Starr said that he felt sorry for his hero, because he had become such that he could isolate himself from the whole world and did not know how to change now. This is evidenced by his desire to seem good, which is limited only to unfamiliar people. Relatives know what kind of person he is, which often saddens Homelander.
  2. Erin Moriarty had to dye her straw-colored hair pure blonde for the role. Considering that it took Erin a long time to get a real sun shine on her hair, she did not want to lose this privilege, and at first it was even about wigs. But the director was categorical, especially since the wig would often fall off in complex tricks.
  3. Among the directors of the TV show is Philip Sgriccia, who has been working on the “Supernatural” project for several years. As the TV series drew to a close, Philip was on the lookout for a new massive project. So his eyes settled on “The Boys”, as Sgriccia prefers science fiction.
