Amazon’s The Boys takes the superhero production and eschews its norms (with gory enthusiasm). The show subverts the good vs. evil trope inherent to the genre via a capitalistic lens, lending way to sadistic, morally ambiguous, and downright stomach-flipping violence.

What would happen if a major company owned superheroes — owned their image, controlled their actions, made excuses for their poor behavior? Simply put: they wouldn’t be the Avengers. They would be property, with varying opinions toward wealth and society. Season 2 of The Boys recently premiered, making the first three episodes of the Amazon original’s second outing available for viewing. Yet, this Amazon series is not a screenwriters’ original concept; it’s based on a comic book series by the same name.
