The Boys is the answer to the long-standing question of many superhero fans, what if superheroes were actually just perverts and operating for self-interest?

Hughie is gentle and honest, but later on, he gets older because he is taught by the brothers in the group to the right place. He can both gossip, blackmail and even murder (the situation has to be killed).

M.M and Frenchie clash.

Billy Butcher is exactly a brute, careless young man, ready to give his brothers good work to achieve his goals and look at life with sunglasses that can't be darker.

As for the members of The Seven, most of them are a collection of a bunch of gangsters, living only on their own fame, depraved mind.
A-Train (Flash in some universe), the fastest superhero on the planet is addicted to drugs in order to achieve achievements.
Translucent (Male version of a certain quartet of the M family), a special stealth ability used to peek into the women's restroom.
The Deep (Aquaman weak version), is almost useless in the group because the mind only thinks about saving dolphins locked in the zoo and when they land, they are considered waste.
