I'm outta my depth. I'm sorry. There's no way I can do this or anythin' even like it. I can't even begin to imagine the kinda things you'd have to know how to do. I've got to... you know, I've got to try an' get on with everything.
―Wee Hughie to Billy Butcher[src]

Hugh "Hughie" Campbell, also known as Wee Hughie, is the main protagonist of The Boys. A Scottish conspiracy theorist whose girlfriend, Robin Mawhinney, was accidentally killed by A-Train during a superhero battle, he was recruited by Billy Butcher to join The Boys soon after to manage and take down "supes". He worked alongside Butcher, Mother's Milk, the Frenchman, and the Female (of the Species).

Butcher injected Hughie with Compound V during their first mission, giving Hughie superhero powers but angering him, nonetheless. He received superhuman strength and durability. While part of the team, he entered a romantic relationship with the supe Starlight.

After Butcher killed Black Noir in revenge of his wife, he kills Mother's Milk, Frenchie, and The Female. Hughie confronts Butcher and kills him by stabbing him in the chest.

Sometime later, Hughie reunites with Starlight and the two eventually get married and move to Scotland.

Powers and Abilities[]


A-Train% 27s-Death
  • Superhuman Strength: After being injected with Compound V, Hughie has become strong enough to behead A-Train with a kick and punch a hole in the chest of the Blarney Cock.
  • Superhuman Durability: Hughie has been shown to survive punches from supes, sustaining only a bloody nose.


  • Intelligence: Hughie has been shown to think in such a way that solving mysteries comes naturally to him. When working on a murder case, Billy Butcher and the other Boys assumed the sexual identity of the killer was part of the motive, whereas Hughie was the first to ignore it entirely. This way of thinking likely comes from his knowledge of (and previous belief in) various conspiracy theories. Hughie works well with others and effectively follows orders, making him a great asset to The Boys.
