The Boys season two (spoilers)

So, Amazon dropped episodes 1-3 of The Boy's second season this week and episodes will be dropping Fridays. I haven't read the comics this is based on.

So, episode one had a creepy funny moment with Black Noir playing with the little kid's bunny while holding the super terrorist villain's head. I'm guessing storm front's powers are like storm's only without the calling out your attacks thing. Also seems to be a racist and a way to possibly keep Homelander in check.

Once again The Deep screws up (note to sea mammals,do not take a ride from The Deep) The Collective seems to be a take on Scientology or at least groups like that.

Noticed everything you mentioned.

Wonder if Stormfronts name was a clue to her racism. She seems badass.

The Deep sucks lol. Felt bad for the whale.
Wonder when it went up. I noticed the 3 episodes were up late last night (Friday) and we watched them earlier today.

If you like Antony Barr (Homelander) he was in a show called Outrageous Fortune and it's great. Think Married With Children crossed with Shameless.

Did a little research on Storm Front and, in the comics, that character was a stereotypical German racist/supremist and an result of WWII experiments with early versions of Compound V. Huge difference from the character in the Prime show, with the exception of the racism. Seems like they won't be using a conceit from the comics with respect to Homelander and Storm Front.

I couldn't figure out if Black Noir was laughing of crying, when the world learnt about Compound V, as he was sitting in the hallway on the floor. Might have to re-watch.

The Deep had about 30 seconds of maybe being redeemable, even with the whale thing, until Homelander casually crushed his soul under his boot.

Stormfront wa a website for those with views that like an Austrian dictator 1933-45.

Deep might get a redemption arc idk.

Shows clever.

Not on the series. In the comics, or so I read, Homelander was essentially
a clone of Storm Front
.
Dunno about that, but in the show she can blast people with Palpatine lighting. I read the comics a few years back, and enjoyed them, but I can't remember them much except that Billy Butcher was supposed to be English, the kid was supposed to be Simon Pegg, and Mother's Milk was supposed to be really big.

So, what do you think blew up the CIA lady's head in episode 1? A hidden super, or some kind of keyword-triggered implant? If it's an implant, how many people have Vought implanted?

I'm sorry but Black Noir is turning into the comical serious for me. I'm thinking Liberty "disappeared" and then Stormfront "appeared" with the help of Stan Edgar. Either she doesn't age at all or she's very slow aging.

Interesting. Stormfront, in the comics,
was a result of early Compound V testing by the Nazis, during WWII and was still around in 'current day.'

I'm not sure they going with that origin but i could be wrong, have you watched the episode yet?

Not yet. I'm officially "at work" (work from home) and so can't get to it until later. So far they've done the racist angle from the comics for Stormfront but they don't seem to have gone with the full origin.

Banshee was great, as well. Kai was a good, pragmatic and "realistic" villain rather than a ball of cheese.

They just revealed in the show she is at least 70 years old and used to be a superhero called Liberty. And doubled down on the racism.

Well you kind of want her to kick Homelanders ass then get her ass kicked.

Being this show they'll probably marry each other after killing Starlight and create the Uber supe baby. After killing a cute marine mammal.
