Synopsis / Summary

The Boys is set in a universe in which superpowered people are recognized as heroes by the general public and owned by a powerful corporation, Vought International, which ensures that they are aggressively marketed and monetized. Outside of their heroic personas, most are arrogant and corrupt. The series primarily focuses on two groups: the titular Boys, vigilantes looking to keep the corrupted heroes under control, and the Seven, Vought International’s premier superhero team. The Boys are led by Billy Butcher, who despises all superpowered people, and the Seven are led by the egotistical and unstable Homelander. As a conflict ensues between the two groups, the series also follows the new members of each team: Hugh “Hughie” Campbell of the Boys, who joins the vigilantes after his girlfriend is killed in a high-speed collision by the Seven’s A-Train, and Annie January/Starlight of the Seven, a young and hopeful heroine forced to face the truth about the heroes she admires.

Top 10 most memorable quotes from The Boys

  • Billy Butcher: I just had to pop down to the shop. I was running a bit low on mind your own f*cking business.
  • Annie January: Anyone who tells you they know the answers is lying. And I know, I know, I’m supposed to be this hero-idol-symbol-whatever, but I don’t know what the hell I’m doing. I’m just as scared and confused as the rest of you. I’m done pretending, and I’m done taking any more sh*t. Thank you.
  • Queen Maeve: Everyone always asks, what’s our special weakness? Gamma rays? Iron daggers? Some ridiculous, stupid thing? The truth is, our weakness is the same as anyone’s. It’s people. The people we care about. So I say, cut them loose. For your good and for theirs. That way you’re really bulletproof.
  • Homelander: I’m the world’s greatest superhero. – Jonah Vogelbaum: You’re my greatest failure.
  • Queen Maeve: I really did want to make a difference. I really did care. I was just like you. And then… I started giving pieces of myself away and… I guess I gave away everything. So you know what? Be… just be original. For f*ck’s sake. My position is already taken. Be the annoying goody two-shoes a**hole that you are. One of us has to be.
  • Hughie Campbell: I could be the person that nobody thinks is awesome, but it turns out they’re kind of f*cking awesome.
  • Homelander: Gods… should not have to feel that kind of… yeah, pain. Because that… is what we are, Ryan. You and me. We’re gods. Son, we can do anything we want. And no one can stop us. Now, that.. That’s a good feeling. A really good feeling. And now you… and me… can share it together.
  • Stormfront (to Homelander): Emotion sells, anger sells. You have fans. I have soldiers.
  • Homelander: I got to go run lines with Noir.
  • Frenchie: Girls do get it done.
