    If you think that The Boys was trying to do the same thing as Man of Steel with Superman/superheroes in general, than you missed the point of either project, and likely both. Man of Steel was about the media hating Superman even though he was a good guy.


    The Boys is about the media promoting superheroes even though they are bad people.


    You even said that The Boys is really corporations. Man of Steel is not about corporations in the slightest. On the surface, the two projects share similarities, but they don't share similarities at the creative heart of either.

          No mention of using a baby as a laser-gun like in The Incredibles? I couldn't believe it. So great.

            Didn't the way to kill Translucent was sort of a nod to the way the Internet wanted Ant Man to kill Thanos?

              Cucked by Homelander....so fucked up. What a horrible "wife" felt soooooo bad for Butcher. Great acting from litterally everyone involved 10/10

                Karl Urban using that laser-baby as a gun was a highlight, also. I love how he then tenderly puts the baby back in its crib and says "keep your nose clean, or i'm coming for you." Anthony Starr is pretty riveting as Homelander. Really great performance. I also love how sincere and believable the relationships all are. Starlight and Hughie, Frenchie and the X-23 type girl, heck even A-Train and Popclaw. They all have very believable relationships.

                  one of the best shows out there, the best about super heroes - way better than Watchmen so far and with probably half the budget , if not less.

                        You can just feel the pure contempt they don’t have for each other. It’s so obvious that Jay can stand being around Rich and vice versa.

                          "Garth Ennis" is all I needed to hear. I predict this show contains gratuitous swearing, child abuse, violence in general and various forms of implied or explicit sodomy, and quite a few tips of the ol' fedora. And every single person in it is a complete tool.


                          I am intrigued.

                                    The pretty much eats shit from the get go. His friends with benefits dolphin goes splat while he was trying to rescue it. Mr lobsters gets the knife, he pretty much gets finger fucked in the gills against his will. Everyone in the 7thinks he’s a joke, he gets kicked out of the 7 and sent to a mid west town where there is only a small shallow lake. Had a mental breakdown and shaved his head and on top of all that he is noticeably scared shitless of starlight. He knows he can’t take her in a 1v1 . By the end of the season, despite knowing what a piece of shit he is I started to kinda feel sorry for him.

                                      Are you kidding me? Blac Noir has the perfect comedic timing. The scene with him bogart'ing the pianist, and to go on playing classical music? Perfection. Or the scene where Homelander gives him kudos for doing a good job while he's on the verge of ripping the entire room to shreds. Everyone is in fear, and Black Noir is just there all calm and stoic. Hilarious.

                                                Preacher ain't too bad honestly the hype just died down really quickly for some reason.

I dont think this is a spoiler because the show kind of combined the two into Homelander's character. HOWEVER, his character may be more than he appears, which actually works with his, behind-the-scenes nature.

I absolutely loved The Boys- most notably in its allusions/homages and winks/nods to Snyder’s amazing films (especially Watchmen and Batman V Superman).
