- "Uh, for me, my aha moment came with a hostage situation at Kroger. Multiple shooters. I showed up, I'm letting arrows fly, my aim is perfect. But... there's only so many arrows a quiver can hold. I just ran out. And then, we lost a lot of good people that day. Then you start to question like, fucking arrows against TEC-9s? But I came to see that archery isn't irrelevant, it's timeless. It's a pure and ancient art. Carol helped me see that."

The Boys Series[edit | edit source]
In The Boys, Eagle the Archer is first seen when he finds and saves The Deep. He introduces him to a woman named Carol and together they introduce The Deep to the Church of the Collective, where they help The Deep find himself and sort out his personal issues. In return for completing the process, they promise Deep he'll earn his place back in The Seven.
Eagle later leaves the Church after refusing to isolate his mother from his life and realizing they didn't help his career. In response, the Church denounces and publicly smears him by leaking his sex tape. They also forbid any of their members from associating with him.
In the comics[edit | edit source]
Eagle the Archer is mentioned, but seen only on the cover of a Vought-American comic shown to Hughie in issue #20. In issue #9 Butcher informs Tek Knight that six years ago Eagle the Archer "got coked off his tits" and beat his girlfriend into a coma. Butcher blackmailed him in exchange for information on all of his teammates.
An earlier character to hold the identity appeared in The Boys #52 and was killed during his first mission in issue #53 by a German ambush, when he tried to fly above the fight and was hit by a friendly plane who exclaims "YOU STUPID FUCKING BASTARD AAAAAAAAAHHH!!!" as Eagle's body is shredded by a propellor. His torso falls to the earth and is crushed under a German Panzer tank.
Personality[edit | edit source]
Eagle is a very nice, positive person, who seems eager to help those around him.
He does however become resentful towards the Church of the Collective after refusing to continue with the program, which would've required him to excommunicate and shun his mother. Eagle refused and openly spoke out against the Church and their program, despite the Church's attempts to silence and discredit him.
Powers and Abilities[edit | edit source]
- Archery Proficiency: Eagle is highly skilled with a bow and arrow, reportedly having perfect aim.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
