Directly from the pages of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys comic book series, Soldier Boy is the original superhero. Having featured in World War II, Soldier Boy became the first celebrity hero and a mainstay of US culture for decades in the realm of The Boys.

Season 3 of The Boys is expected to air towards the end of 2021, but before that we’ve got Season 2 premiering this September 4 on Prime Video.
