With both Homelander and Butcher in despair after losing Becca, the young Ryan left to figure out his superhero skills and abilities, and Butcher and the other Boys hellbent on taking down the Supes, it’s a bigger battle than ever in the third season of this superhero series. That’s especially so now that Butcher has a way to get his own super-human abilities. Unlike other superhero shows, The Boys takes a more satrical look at the concept of superheroes who are being managed (and manufactured) by a greedy corporation. It’s all about public perception, even if these supes sometimes do horrifying things. Everything they do is carefully crafted to benefit the company and its social, economic, and political influences. The Boys is vile, violent, and crude, but fans can’t get enough of it.
