here are the 5 new Supers and their equivalences at Marvel / DC

Season 3 of The Boys is expected more than ever by fans, who see the release date (namely June 3) getting closer than ever. We would like to present to you today the Supers that may replace Stormfront in your heart, sinceas you certainly know, the latter will not part of the cast for the next season.

1) Soldier Boy (Captain America equivalent)

We start by introducing you one of the most anticipated Supes of the coming season. As you probably already know if you follow news related to The Boys, Jensen Ackles will take on the role of Soldier Boy. The Soldier Boy is a patriotic leader who fought in World War II after being one of the first to benefit from Compound V, a chemical that gives superpowers. He is what we can call a “failed” version of Captain America, and besides, the latter even sports a beard similar to the one Steve Rogers sports at the end of his career in the MCU. How patriotic the Soldier Boy will be on screen remains to be seen, but his comic book origins show him as loyal to the country’s cause as Captain America. even if he is not nearly so noble and brave.

2) the Scarlet Countess (equivalent to Scarlet Witch)

The Scarlet Countessplayed by Laurie Holden, will also be a character to follow closely. Although her fire manipulation powers are not particularly similar to those of “classic” members of the Avengers, her clothes and red hair make her an unmistakable reflection of Scarlet Witch. In the comics, The Scarlet Countess has also become infatuated with a robotic superhero, and this couple can then be mistaken for the Scarlet Witch/Vision couple. Also, in the trailer for season 3 of The Boys, we can see him blowing up a statue (unless it’s a person…). This type of ability is similar to chaos magick and power manipulation abilities. the reality that Scarlet Witch possesses in the MCU.

3) Blue Hawk (Wolverine equivalent)

Blue Hawk, a character played by Nick Wechsler, is a character that does not explicitly appear in the comics The Boys. According to certain rumours, launched in particular by insider Daniel Ritchman, it would be a Super racist, as well as a friend of A-Train. It is also possible that this character is close to that of Ground Hawk, which does exist in the comics. The latter is a member of the G-Men, and a parody of Wolverine with a similar costume, an aggressive personality, and hammers for hands. It’s for now the preferred hypothesis.

4) Supersonic (possible équivalent de Quicksilver)

We have for the moment few elements in our possession concerning the supersonic characterplayed by Miles Gaston Villanueva in season 3 of The Boys, as this character does not appear in the comics either. The latter, however, is rumored to have had a relationship with Starlight before the events of the series, but his powers are not explicitly mentioned in the promotional material. However, with a name like “Supersonic”, it is quite possible that it is a Supe with powers close to those of A-Train. In this case, its equivalent at Marvel would obviously be Quicksilver.

5) Gunpowder (équivalent de Judge Dredd & Deadshot)

Patrick Flannery will play the role ofa Supe named “Gunpowder”and who was briefly introduced in the first season (but played by a different actor), thanks to an interviewhere is an interview:

This character, in the comics, makes his first appearance during the Herogasm (episode that we detail in a previous article. It is basically a superhero orgy that Eric Kripke will adapt for the third season of The Boys). He is a member of the corrupt superhero team (and less known than the Seven) dubbed “Teenage Kix”. Regarding his powers, Gunpowder can breathe fire, and he also uses firearms. Therefore, it is sponsored by the National Rifle Agency (NRA), the United States gun rights group. We imagine very well how this character, in the hands of Eric Kripkecan become in itself a real criticism of armaments and defense policy in the United States.

According to rumours, season 3 of The Boys may have taken inspiration from two different superheroes to create Gunpowder: Judge Dredd (a character from comic books and an eponymous science fiction film released in 1995) and Deadshot (from DC). We are already looking forward, on our side, to see if these new characters will be at the level of those presented in previous seasons, and in the comics.
