With its darkly humorous one-liners and in-depth reflections on the arbitrary nature of virtue and evil, The Boys is one of the most quotable series in recent memory.
The characters that make up the universe of The Boys are capable of making statements that are both humorous and clever, as well as thoughtful and insightful. Of course, The Deep is in a league of his own as the author of unintentionally funny dialogue. All of it is related to the essence of the show, which frequently parodies the genre it is based in.
Billy Butcher may have the best lines on the show thanks to his don’t care attitude. Pop culture allusions abound in his unfiltered language. Then there is Homelander, his sworn nemesis, whose arrogance frequently manifests itself in the most revealing ways in both his words and deeds. It becomes clear after a few minutes of hearing him speak that his main concern is for himself. There are several renowned orators in The Boys, so these two aren’t the only ones with memorable statements.
“Sometimes It’s Hard Being Superior To Every Single Other Person On The Planet.”
Homelander warns his son Ryan that becoming a superhero is a lonely profession in what he believes to be wise fatherly counsel. And that despite being such a well-liked public person, he occasionally feels incredibly lonely.
Homelander qualifies this comment by asserting that he and Ryan, as well as other Supes, are gods and should not be made to feel so alone. Had he explored his feelings of loneliness more deeply, it may have been incredibly enlightening. Homelander hammers home the concept that they are superior than everyone else in the world, whereas some other parents would encourage their children to have greater humility.
“I’m The Diversity Hire. I’m A Joke.”
Considering how The Deep abused Starlight in the very first episode, it’s difficult to feel sorry for him. But eventually, when every one of his well-intentioned actions ends in a darkly humorous failure, it becomes conceivable to feel a little sympathy for him. He is a bad person and not very intelligent, but there is no question that he genuinely cares for sea creatures. But the fact that no one takes him seriously is the issue.
Because of his unique physiology (he has gills on his lower stomach) and his love for the water and its animals, he feels excluded and overlooked, like a token Supe in the Seven.
“Since When Did ‘Hopeful’ And ‘Naïve’ Become The Same Thing?”
The only time the series approaches a moral compass is with Starlight. Others might desire to join the Seven in order to gain influence and strength, but Starlight has only one motivation: fighting injustice. She holds onto her thoughts and principles even after learning the reality about the Seven.
She doesn’t like it when others assume that her youthfulness and inexperience are the cause of her optimism. She believes that having hope is a result of her abilities, or at the very least that she can use her platform to improve the world.
“Hughie, You’ve Done A Murder. Comparatively Speaking, This Will Be A Piece Of Cake.”
Hughie’s murder of Translucent is one of the most horrifying episodes in The Boys’ first season and a turning point in his life. Hughie pushes the button that launches the Supe into the walls and the floor, even though Frenchie sets everything up.
Butcher remarks that he pretty much has everything under control, even if it takes coercing Ezekiel into aiding them. He is specifically referring to this occurrence. Hughie is obviously a little anxious about the mission, so Butcher gives him a little pep talk to help him get over his nervousness (in his customary, taunting fashion).
“Well, A Stranger Is Just A Friend You Ain’t Met Yet.”
Butcher exudes a self-assured swagger that is evident in all of his deeds, whether they are legal or illegal. He borrows a boat and pretends to be borrowing it from a friend when the Boys need one in order to remain covert and hide from both the government and Supes. His deception is delivered with such conviction that Frenchie falls for it.
When the true purpose of the boat’s purchase is revealed later, when they are at sea, Butcher says the aforementioned phrase extremely casually. There are no restrictions on what he can do to complete a mission. By all means necessary, he will complete the task at hand.
“The Bad Guys Don’t Get Punished. What We Do Means Nothing. It’s Just All For Money, And I Am In The Middle Of All Of It.”
The bond between the two is severely strained when it is discovered that all Supes were given Compound V injections as children and that it was not a god-given gift, as Starlight’s mother had taught her to believe. The fact that her mother merely assumes she is having fun in the Seven and that Homelander and the other are as perfect as they seem on screen makes the situation even worse.
The two of them get back together after a few episodes of being estranged after Starlight reveals to her the real story of Vought’s superhero team.
“You See: Companies, They Come And Go, But Talent Is Forever.”
Homelander struggles a little with being in charge because he dislikes being told what to do. He values his independence over following the marketing team at Vought since he believes he is considerably more clever and superior to everyone around him.
When Stormfront is added to the team in season two, he is beyond furious that he wasn’t contacted before the appointment. He meets with Stan Edgar, the CEO of Vought, to voice these and other complaints, and he subtly threatens to leave the company permanently.
“I Don’t Think It’s Morgan Freeman Up There Or Anything But It All Can’t Be Random Chaos.”
In the episode where Starlight steals the show at the Believe Expo, a gathering dedicated to religion and faith, Butcher strikes up a casual discussion with Hughie and inquires as to his religious beliefs.
Butcher pokes fun of the younger man when he appears hesitant to respond, and Hughie eventually replies, “I’m not sure.” He doesn’t believe in an all-powerful God like the one Morgan Freeman has occasionally portrayed, but he also doesn’t believe that life has no purpose or significance. This is consistent with Hughie’s broader mental state, where he is still determining what his precise place in The Boys is.
“Yeah, I Can Talk To Fish. So What? How Often Do You Need To Be Saved By A School Of Salmon?”
The Deep bemoans the fact that Vought only gives him sponsorships or rescue operations involving water. He solves every aquatic mystery by asking the fish, whale, and shark population if there’s any trouble around because he has the ability to comprehend and converse with all kinds of sea creatures. As an example, he might ask a school of fish to carry out a rescue operation. He also sends them to handle the work for him.
Despite the fact that he had some success with these strategies, he still feels as though his full potential isn’t being utilized. But despite all his gripes, he just manages to seem ridiculous and funny.
“I Really Did Want To Make A Difference…And Then I Started Giving Pieces Of Myself Away And I Guess I Gave Away Everything.”
Maeve is the only Supe in the Seven, aside from Starlight, who aspires to do good deeds because she views it as her life’s work. She is not like Homelander or the other rescuers who utilize every opportunity to enhance their brand and who even conduct their lives in accordance with a marketing plan chosen by Vought.
However, she has given up trying to change the world and the Seven itself after years of fruitless attempts and has just allowed Vought to control at least her public persona. Starlight expresses her unhappiness with Maeve’s apathy and suggests that Starlight might have the same fate after she tells the same to her.
The Boys: Erin Moriarty Teases Shocking Season 4 Storylines

Season 4 of Prime Video’s The Boys has already begun production, and the group is already teasing spectators with all of the surprises in store. Specifically, actress Erin Moriarty, who teased something unusual on social media.
Moriarty remarked in an Instagram story, “Don’t say I didn’t warn you.” Attached was a photo showing herself and co-stars Jack Quaid, Karen Fukuhara, Tomer Capone, and Laz Alonso gazing out of a vault-like area, similar to the one they were in during Season 3.

Vernon Sanders, Amazon Studios’ head of global television, previously teased the escalation of The Boys, saying before Season 3’s release, “We knew from our first conversation with Eric Kripke and the creative team about Season Three of The Boys that the show was going to get even bolder – an impressive feat given the show’s Emmy-nominated second season… The Boys keeps pushing narrative limits while simultaneously being compulsively entertaining and threading the line on social satire that seems all too true.”
Season 4 was announced before of Season 3’s broadcast, with actor Karl Urban announcing in March, “I’m filming The Boys until the end of the year.” This followed previous claims, dating back to 2021, that Prime Video had approved a fourth season.

In Season 3, Billy Butcher and Hughie used a temporary version of Compound V to take on the Vought and members of The Seven. Butcher and the Boys, desperate to bring Homelander down, searched for and awoke a dormant supe, Soldier Boy. While specifics about the new season’s narrative are scant, actor Jensen Ackles hinted that the Seven’s previous leader may not have met his end.
Season 4 of The Boys won’t be available on Prime Video for a while, but the Vought Universe has lots more in store. Prime Video is producing a spinoff series set on a supe college in addition to a second season of the anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical! The project, dubbed Gen-V, is the franchise’s first live-action spinoff. Jaz Sinclair as Marie Moreau, Chance Perdomo as Emma Shaw, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger as Golden Boy, Sean Patrick Thomas as Polarity, and Marco Pigossi as Doctor Edison Cardosa are among the cast members.
The Boys’ first three seasons, as well as The Boys Presents: Diabolical!, are now accessible on Prime Video.
Jensen Ackles Landing The Role On The Boys Just As Supernatural Was Ending (And Beat Movie Stars To Do It)
Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new
Jensen Ackles is no longer Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and his follow-up role as Soldier Boy on The Boys took a drastically different turn. His new post resulted in a Supernatural reunion, since creator Eric Kripke also oversees the Amazon Prime program. The actor has spoken openly about how he landed Soldier Boy just as Supernatural was wrapping up. It even included defeating some Hollywood stars.
Eric Kripke described how Jensen Ackles got the part of Soldier Boy in 2021, but now it’s Ackles’ turn to tell his side of the tale. In a recent interview with Men’s Health, he discussed his experience on The Boys and how he got the part of Supe. Soldier Boy was originally intended for an older actor, but when Ackles contacted Kripke to ask his thoughts on a different project, the discussion took an unexpected turn: “I said, ‘So what’s going on over there at The Boys?” We were about to finish watching Supernatural when I realized, ‘You know, I’m going to be jobless.’ I just tossed it out there playfully. ‘Look, dude, if you want to come over to The Boys, I’ll bring you over here no problem,’ he offered right away. I’d be delighted to have you.’ ‘Sign me up!’ I said.
Given that Supernatural was nearing the end of its 15-season run, it’s no surprise that Ackles leaped at the chance to join The Boys! The actor said that Kripke gave him several audition tapes and that he instantly wanted in.
However, Ackles was skeptical that he would even receive the role. While he didn’t say who since he’d be blacklisted, he did say that after hearing who was on the shortlist, he was certain he wasn’t going to get Soldier Boy: I do know that there were certain names that I believe the network was considering. A brief list of names was provided. And when [Kripke] recited a handful of those names to me, I said to myself, ‘Oh, well, there’s no way.’ I don’t stand a chance. Those people are Hollywood stars.’
Fortunately, Jensen Ackles was cast as Soldier Boy, and the rest is history. It makes me wonder who else was up for the position and who made Ackles so concerned that he wouldn’t win it. Maybe one of those actors will appear as a different hero in The Boys Season 4, when it airs?
Meanwhile, Ackles was not the only Supernatural performer to go right into a new project once the show wrapped. Jared Padalecki agreed to play the title character in the Walker revival before the last season of Supernatural had even wrapped (and prior to the COVID shutdowns). Walker launched in SPN’s timeslot the following year, and the third season is already in the works, with prequel series Walker: Independence set to debut this autumn. In addition, Ackles’ Supernatural prequel The Winchesters will air in a few months.
There isn’t much information regarding The Boys Season 4 or if Soldier Boy will return. It’s unclear if he’ll return to cause more havoc now that he’s been taken back under and frozen in the season finale. Jensen Ackles, on the other hand, has been cast as a series regular on ABC’s Big Sky.
Season 3 of The Boys is now accessible with an Amazon Prime membership, while all 15 seasons of Supernatural are available with a Netflix subscription.
In One Important Way, The Boys’ Soldier Boy Outperforms Captain America
While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essen
While The Boys’ Soldier Boy seemed to be a crude parody of Marvel Comics’ Captain America, the copycat supe actually outperformed the original in one essential way—at least in terms of the live-action version.
Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) is a Super Soldier in the Amazon Prime Video original series The Boys who was produced via the usage of Compound V—a serum that can convert individuals into superhumans. Soldier Boy was originally only extraordinarily strong and invulnerable. However, after extensive testing in a Russian laboratory, Soldier Boy obtained the ability to take away the abilities of other superheroes with a catastrophic explosion that he can generate from inside his own body. While that powerful skill is amazing (and one that Captain America lacks), it isn’t the reason The Boys’ Soldier Boy is more impressive than Captain America. The true explanation is significantly more subtle, but immensely more helpful in combat settings.

The Avengers receive a distress call from a region of the planet that has been taken over by communist tyranny in Avengers #18 by Stan Lee and Don Heck, which was a huge matter given that this issue was published not long after the ‘Red Scare’ in the United States. Following a distress signal from a place in eastern Asia, the Avengers are met by communist officials from that region who pose as people in danger in order to deceive the Avengers into falling into their trap, all as part of their strategy to show that communism was better to capitalism. When the Avengers realize their error in taking this call, they are promptly attacked with a knockout gas that renders all of them unconscious, including Captain America.
M.M. tosses a smoke grenade at Soldier Boy in The Boys season 3 episode 6 titled ‘Herogasm,’ but Soldier Boy picks up the grenade and inhales the deadly smoke merely for the head rush, indicating that it has absolutely no effect on him at all. Captain America’s physique isn’t as powerful as Soldier Boy’s, as seen by Cap being put unconscious by the same chemical that took out Hawkeye, who is practically just an ordinary human, in Avengers #18. Being resistant to sleeper gas during a combat is very valuable since it is generally one of the first things an adversary would attempt to employ to target a group of heroes they intend to capture. Soldier Boy can only be knocked unconscious by a fatal nerve poison, therefore if he had been in Captain America’s place in this Avengers issue, the enemies would have had no idea what struck them.
Of course, this comparison is only valid between the comic book Captain America and the live-action Soldier Boy, since Soldier Boy in the comics cannot compete with any version of Captain America. Butcher immediately kills the Soldier Boy from The Boys comics after he is repeatedly insulted and molested by Homelander. Soldier Boy in the comics is the polar opposite of Captain America in terms of strength and ferocious courage. While The Boys’ live-action Soldier Boy is similarly a dark twist on a Captain America-like figure, he is more strong than the original since his body can withstand much more torture than Marvel’s top Super Soldier.
Following that, Captain America’s Avengers training is much too grueling for the MCU.
