About the Book

Supes Ain't Always HeroesGo deeper inside the hit TV show The Boys and its characters with psychologists, media experts, filmmakers, and more—including the original comic series’ co-creator and the actors behind Soldier Boy and Stormfront.

Supes Ain’t Always Heroes offers a fresh look at The Boys, delving into the show’s unflinching depiction of celebrity, politics, social media, corporate greed, racism, sexism, and more:

  • The true difference between Homelander and Billy Butcher—and who the show’s biggest villain really is
  • What Soldier Boy’s characterization says about how we define masculinity
  • How today’s media landscape has contributed to The Boys success
  • What the evolutions of Hughie, Starlight, A-Train, Mother’s Milk, and other show standouts reflect about addiction, family, identity, and self-acceptance

PLUS: Exclusive interviews with The Boys comics co-creator Darick Robertson and actors Jensen Ackles (Soldier Boy), Jim Beaver (Robert Singer a.k.a. Dakota Bob), Aya Cash (Stormfront), and Nathan Mitchell (Black Noir) provide a unique glimpse behind the scenes. Comments from editor interviews with more of the show’s stars give further insight into their experiences in bringing these complex characters to life.
