Plot Summary

The Boys is set in a universe where superpowered people are recognized as heroes by the general public and owned by 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.

Edit
Trivia American actor Jack Quaid plays the part of Hughie in the series. In the comic book, Hughie is from Scotland and he resembles English actor and writer Simon Pegg. Pegg was "super chuffed" to be "immortalized as a comic book character" and also wrote the introduction for The Boys Vol.1 collection, "The Name of the Game." Pegg is also known for his role as Montgomery "Scotty" Scott in the rebooted Star Trek (2009) film trilogy, alongside Karl Urban who plays Doctor "Bones" McCoy. Karl Urban stars as Billy Butcher in The Boys. Pegg was originally supposed to play Little Hughie when the comic was made into a movie or series, but because it took so long to make the jump, he will be playing Hughie's father instead. See more »
