Gerald Nubian, better known as Nubian Prince, is a Supe seen in the first season of the Amazon series The Boys. He was also featured in The Boys Presents: Diabolical.

The Boys Series[]


Gerald Nubian was born in Detroit at some point. He later was injected with Compound V and became a Supe. He became a superhero and gained a lot of popularity with the black community and a 59% approval rating with Caucasians.

The Boys Presents: Diabolical[]

Season One[]

During a meeting with the Mayor of Baltimore, Madelyn Stillwell recommends Nubian Prince as an adequate hero for the city. She states that he is from Detroit and would fit right in Baltimore, offering to have him transferred to the city to deal with the increasing crime rate. The mayor was willing to offer $200 million for his services but Madelyn was requesting $300 million. The mayor said he knew about Compound V and threatened to expose her if he didn't take the deal. Madelyn denied the existence of Compound V and threatened to send Nubian Prince to Atlanta instead. They later agreed on $230 million, although the deal most likely did not come to fruition as the mayor was later killed by Homelander, who severely laser beamed his private jet.


Like most superheroes, Nubian puts on a persona in front of the public to gain more popularity. His facade consists of a prince like personality, managing to put on a fake African accent and behaving in a royal-like way.

While Madelyn Stillwell described him as "not too militant", this statement is questionable since he brutally wounded Groundhawk during their two encounters, attacking him even after defeating him.
