Plot summary

What is The Boys TV series plot?

Here is a short review of "The Boys" TV series plot summary.

The Boys is set in a universe where superpowered individuals are recognized as heroes by the general public and work for the powerful corporation Vought International, which markets and monetizes them. Outside of their heroic personas, most are arrogant and corrupt. The series primarily focuses on two groups: the Seven, Vought's premier superhero team, and the eponymous Boys, vigilantes looking to bring down Vought and its corrupt superheroes.
The Boys are led by Billy (Karl Urban) Butcher, who despises all superpowered people, and the Seven are led by the narcissistic and violent Homelander. At the start of the series, the Boys are joined by Hughie (Jack Quaid) Campbell after the drug-addicted member of the Seven named A-Train accidentally kills his girlfriend, while the Seven are joined by Annie January (Erin Moriarty), a young and hopeful heroine forced to face the truth about those she admires. Other members of the Seven include the disillusioned Queen Maeve, the insecure Deep, the mysterious Black Noir, and secret white supremacist Stormfront. The Boys are rounded out by tactical planner Mother's Milk, weapons specialist Frenchie (Tomer Capone), and superpowered test subject Kimiko. Overseeing the Seven is Vought executive Madelyn Stillwell (Elisabeth Shue), who is later succeeded by publicist Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie).
