Based on the comic series of the same name, The Boys follows the titular superpowered CIA squad who closely monitor the superhero community as their celebrity status has corrupted them and led them to engage in reckless behavior compromising the world.
The Boys takes place in an America where morally corrupt and degenerate superheroes called the “Seven” take advantage of their powers as well as the celebrity and fame they enjoy. Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher leads a group of vigilantes known informally as “the Boys” who take on the seemingly unbeatable so-called supes. Those not so heroic superheroes are managed by Vought, a giant conglomerate with Madlyn Stillwell (Elizabeth Shue) acting as VP of Hero Management.
