Season 1 and Season 2 Synopsis
The Boys series is set against the backdrop in which superhumans are seen as superheroes by the common person and serve for Vought International, a strong business that promotes and commercializes them. The majority of them are arrogant and unscrupulous outside of their heroic identities. The Seven, Vought’s elite superhero squad, and the titular Boys, vigilantes seeking to bring down Vought and its fraudulent, immoral superheroes, are the main characters of the story.
Season 1 shows the first confrontation between the Boys and the Seven, which is fueled by Butcher’s belief that Homelander is responsible for the abduction of his dear wife Becca. Although Homelander and Stillwell plot to get government assistance for superheroes, the Boys try to foil their plans by delving into Vought’s secrets. Hughie and Annie, initially ignorant of one other’s loyalties, confuse the issue when they start dating, despite Butcher’s mistrust of her.
In season 2 despite becoming a target for the authorities, the Boys continue their attempts to beat Vought in season 2. After Butcher discovers Vought is holding Becca hostage with a superpowered offspring sired by Homelander, the battle takes a new turn. While Butcher tries to save his wife, Stormfront spreads her white supremacist message across the Seven superheroes, hoping that Homelander will take the lead of the superpowered members of the group and guide them in world dominance.
