Immediate reaction when the end credits roll

This is how you get more twisted, insane, cynical and swashbuckling entertaining in a gleefully tearing, teasing and ridiculously radical ‘blow’ to the ‘super hero’ thingies we are used to from Marvel, Disney, DC, etc. An antidote to the onslaught of Avengers, Super Hero (Sups). The Boys season 2 is better than season one without any iota of doubt.

Butcher (Karl Urban) and his gang of boys Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), The Female (Karen Fukuhara), Frenchie (Tomer Capon) and Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso) are back to take on the corporate greed. Vought International, which has created this powerful superhero team – The Seven, led by a Superman-style figure called Homelander (Antony Starr) the most arrogant and the most sadist. Stormfront (Aya Cash) is the new entrant which disturbs the comfort zone of Homelander and the world of the Seven. Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito) the CEO of Vought International and Stillwell’s superior has bigger challenges as the ‘sups’ are facing issues from the world outside and within their team inside.

The Boys Season 2 is more ambitious; it has a desire to have a full-fledged date with its prime characters. Willing to spend to make the date a memorable experience. As the night gets darker, it grows and grows on you with an intoxicating effect. This is profoundly insane, scandalous, flashy and sensational in its vision but the whole meta is super strong in its satire of our politically-divided times. A gleefully mocking mirror reflection of the prejudice, separatisms, the horror of racism, religious divide, xenophobia, corporate criminality and political posturing of our real-life world.

Making it an extraordinarily subversive, cynically entertaining piece of work. The action is gory, gruesome as a zombie/slasher flick.

The series has enough dose of explicit language, graphic violence, overt sexuality and sophisticated storytelling.

Eric Kripke’s mastery is in his ability to find the humanity in everything, no matter how bizarre, eccentric it may seem.

Yes, but this self-indulgent feeling of high handedness that supports extreme violence is not a healthy sign.

The performance of all the lead artists in this extraordinary series is exceptional.

Final words

We all have our favourite superheroes changing from time to time. While they constantly ring the corporate studios bank by topping charts worldwide. How many of us will really wait for a superhero to land from the sky and fight our battles? Reports of The Boys season 3 with Jensen Ackles as Soldier Boy, touted to be the twisted version of Captain America has been making rounds. What makes these Boys so special and a walloping threat to the super heroes? The Boys season 2 is mind-blowingly insane & incredibly awesome, it ups the ante of season 1 and yes, it’s a cult.
