This looks great and I love Karl Urban in everything he shows up in .

[Red Band Trailer] F*ck superheroes. Why? Because when people score limitless power, they become a**holes. Drunk with power and fame. That’s where The Boys come in. from u/TheBoysTV

Don't be stupid, the point was whether the narrative was vague and allegorical like Star Trek, or pointed and specific like the showrunner said his intention was.

But what I do know is she's 10x as hot in a hoodie and ponytail than in that TehSeven getup with the 80s Glamour Shots hairdo.
Yeah seems like she has more to work with but leaving a lot on the table....


The woman who hosts Good Morning football is the opposite, she is working with average stuff but seems a lot hotter than she should be.

They are going to fucking ruin this show:

"One of the reasons that we're getting into Soldier Boy [in season 3] and that team, Payback, is we're interested in exploring a little bit of how we got here," Kripke said. "Through the history of the supes, we can tell a little bit about the history of America and how we ended up in the current fraught position that we're in. Soldier Boy gives us an opportunity to do that."

By "fraught position," he means our current climate in which people are fighting against white supremacy and systemic racism. “Certain politicians like to pitch this somehow idyllic ‘good old days’ where everything was perfect and calm. That is complete and utter bulls---," Kripke added. "It was never that way. So, by exploring the history of Vought in the history of America, we get to make some of those points. There was never an America when they say ‘Make America Great Again.’ It was always a struggle. That's the point. It's a struggle to make things better."

Kripke isn't well informed in comic lore saying Superman is a perfect example of white supremacy when it was written and created by two Jewish men.

Get woke, go broke. I've mostly loved the show but if the creators are gonna keep spewing this filth then I wont shed a tear when the show inevitably gets cancelled. It would be a shame because all of the pieces are there for this thing to become legendary.

The numbers for Season 2 were astronomical and it's in absolutely zero danger of being cancelled.

The funny thing is that the original author Garth Ennis, who is Northern Irish, actually really likes the idea of America as a melting pot. Something he referenced several times in his Hitman series.
