The Boys could use the famous V component in order to stand up to Vought’s superheroes.
We are almost there ! You have a little less than a week to wait before the arrival of season 2 of The Boys on Prime Video. Images already unveiled show the group led by Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) in dire straits as newcomer to the Seven, Stormfront (Aya Cash), seems more determined than ever to build his own army of superheroes. Once again, the fine team of Boys will have to use all the weapons at their disposal in order to continue to fight against Vought. Lucky for them, the Girl (Karen Fukuhara) is always on their side. Still, things would be much fairer if they all had superpowers. Could this be the case in season 2?
Whether the creator of the series, Eric Kripke, or the cast of The Boys, they warned us all: this season 2 will go even further than the first. We can expect everything (or almost) with The Boys, testifies to an excerpt in which the group impales a whale with a motor boat. So it wouldn’t be really surprising if Butcher, Cream (Laz Alonso), Hughie (Jack Quaid) or the Frenchman (Tomer Capon) ended up inheriting superpowers as well. After all, those of Vought’s heroes are not gifts from heaven, but rather the result of taking Component V. If the Boys managed to get their hands on some of the blue product, they could inject enough of it to develop superhuman abilities.
This is what they do in comic books. They use the V component in order to be able to stand up to superheroes. Hughie even gets a dose (without his consent) injected by Butcher. In addition to making the series more faithful to the comics from which it is inspired, the use of the Boys in component V would certainly create the surprise. However, so far the series presents the famous blue liquid as a dangerous drug, and not as a quick fix. Stella (Erin Moriarty) refers to it as such, and A-Train (Jessie Usher) and Popclaw (Brittany Allen) addiction to V is presented as a heroin-like addiction. The band would probably have to be really up against the wall to use it. Hopefully the Boys will find another solution during this season 2, like relying on the help of the superhero Lamplighter.
