What's on your mind?
So he can run 1000mph (season 1 episode 3) yet his shoes remain intact. I have seen race cars go 500mph and their their tires are shredded after a run. How do A-Trains magical shoes hold up against such velocity? It makes no sense at all. Just curious if anyone has a logical answer.

What is the funniest quote in all of The Boys
Hey guys, I just released a brand new video on The Boys with help from the Wiki community on Discord! It's a rankings on all supes that we see on the show, would be really interested in hearing thoughts from you guys!
As the title says, I was wondering what shows people are getting into now that the season is done, or at least shows you are looking forward to.

Wait ..... is black noir edgar’s son ?
Love or hate The Boys, there's some harsh truth behind the making of it that's just as harsh as the morals of it. The reason Ennis made it, was because he hates superheroes and the superhero industry. He also made it to promote the kinds of heroes he likes. Every member of "The Boys" is based on UK comic heroes, which are not as costumed.
But the truth about humanity is, no matter how much our values change, we need heroes. They give us hope and inspiration. And many of the best DC and Marvel comics are the ones that show that Superheroes are about kindness, decency, instead of the adolescent power fantasies that people like Ennis, critique them as. Ennis and more cynical people believe that if a person had powers beyond those of mortal men, they would become like the Seven.
So why is it that DC and Marvel superheroes manage to keep their humanity? Some cynics may say it's not realism, but I think there's something else at play. Something that I think needs to be in the spotlight more. DC and Marvel heroes have two things that most members of the Seven either DON'T have, or have only one of those things.
An empathetic environment. Every hero in the DC and Marvel universe was taught to be kind, empathetic, just, and to show restraint when exercising their powers/
They are not celebrities. Or at least not celebrities on the same level as The Seven. This allows DC and Marvel heroes to avoid corruption that can come with fame and celebrity status. Camera's are not on them nearly every day, they don't star in in-universe movies, and when their off duty, they have civilian lives that they enjoy.
Now some DC and Marvel heroes are open about their secret identities. Some do have vices and addictions, but for whatever reason, be it support from family or friends, a revelation, they bounce back. The Seven may have the power, but not the wisdom of DC and Marvel heroes. And I think that the wisdom those heroes posses needs to be emphasized more in comics.
In terms of the Seven, I could see a fight happen, but what I personally would want to see, is for the League to give the Seven a lecture about how they are complete failures as superheroes. They are failures to the people they should be caring for and protecting, and that they have no right to be heroes at all and should be locked up.
The Boys might be a harder case. I have no doubt that they'd all see the League as the Seven. Monsters heading behind cool costumes. But when they see that the League is nothing like the Seven, and that they actually are true heroes, they'll all be totally confused, especially Butch. But the League may have a bone to pick with the Boys due to the fact that they frequently resort to violence, brutality, torture, and in some cases, high body count. So I could also see a fight breaking out.
But this is just me. What about you?
In these videos, YouTuber Will "The Critical Drinker" Jordan (who is also the author of the "Ryan Drake" book series - the finale of which comes out in November) does his reviews of both Season 1 and Season 2 of The Boys.
See what you guys think and if you agree or not with his points of view.
Before you plays the videos, however, I'd recommend that you set the video speed to x1.25 as Will has a slurry Scottish accent that might grate on your nerves otherwise.
Also, spoiler alert for anyone who hasn't see all the episodes yet and some bad language/adult humour.
Here we go.
