The Boys Series[edit | edit source]
Blindspot is a possible contender for filling Translucent's spot in The Seven. Ashley Barrett is eager to have him join because she thinks demographically he will do great for their image, as Blindspot is differently-abled. He is blind, but possesses superhuman hearing and agility, and is proficient with using a variety of weapons. He was able to identify Homelander without the latter having spoken and is starstruck by being in Homelander's presence.
Homelander feigns interest in Blindspot before bashing his ears in, declaring that he will be useless in the field because without his hearing, he is "just another" blind person. He admonishes a terrified Ashley for considering letting a "cripple" into the Seven before departing, leaving Blindspot screaming in pain in a pool of blood.
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Superhuman Hearing (possibly gone): To compensate for his blindness, Blindspot has developed hearing that is greatly superior to that of a normal person. This power is presumably taken from him by Homelander when the latter destroys his eardrums, though being a Supe, he might have been able to get that healed.
- Martial Arts: Blindspot is a highly skilled martial artist, being proficient with both a staff and daggers.
- Fair durability: Depending on if Homelander was using his full strength, it's possible that Blindspot has decent durability as a normal human might have completely exploded.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- He is based on the Marvel Comics superhero Daredevil.
- Interestingly enough, a Marvel character also named Blindspot actually exists, who is also a blind vigilante.
