The Deep is a character in the Dynamite series The Boys.
The Deep is a long-time member of the Seven, and known to the public as the "King of the Seas". The Deep is the most mature, civilized member of the team and often bears the brunt of other characters' contempt, disregard, and racism. Occasionally finding himself in embarrassing happenstance that steal his metaphorical thunder, such as arriving at The Boys Flatiron HQ to confront them and Butcher slamming the door in his face after telling him to leave.
Despite him being one of the more mature members of The Seven, he is not above lowering himself—as he, along with A-Train, Jack From Jupiter and Black Noir wanted to sexually assault Starlight. He is the only remaining "lab grown" (original) member of the Seven after the events in Washington after he declined to take part in Homelander's attempted coup d'etat against the U.S. government.
He appears in Issue #72, as a part of a new team of superheroes that American Consolidated is attempting to create, called 'True'. Stillwell identifies him immediately, as his new costume, which includes a large, cone-shaped hood resembling a Klan hood still incorporates his helmet's porthole.
- The Deep appears to be a parody of Black Manta, rather than the better-known aquatic superhero Aquaman.
