“The boys” creator isn’t sure Trump supporters realize homelander is a villain



Homelander, the leader of the 7, has done many questionable actions that would categorize him as the main antagonist of the series, but according to republican sympathizers, he embodies the patriotism of the USA.

After some Trump supporters made a mash up of homelander/Trump arresting Biden, Eric Kripke, creator of the show, pondered on wether these individuals have actually watched the show and noticed that the hero is actually a the bad guy.

He has previously said that saying that superheroes had “fascist underpinnings” and were created to protect “white, patriotic America. The myth of the superhero taken straight, that’s where it starts to become fascist. Because they’re protecting a world that doesn’t and shouldn’t exist. Superheroes are inherently MAGA,” Kripke said.
