The Boys is an irreverent look at what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians and revered as gods, abuse their superpowers instead of using them for good. When The Boys embark on a heroic mission to uncover the truth about the Vought-backed “Seven,” a struggle begins between the powerless and the superpowered.
