An amazing piece of work!
The show’s first season revealed a bitter truth that the heroes mostly seek fame by abusing their powers in ways covered up by Vought. The greed of the corporation was exposed who ants to earn billions by licensing the heroes to the military — exaggerating a terrorism threat for providing a justice action. While the second addition to the world of ‘the boys’ is complete entertainment. There are also few moments in the season which make a wider reflection of the racism, corporate criminality, xenophobia, and political-posturing of the real world. It’s a close satire to the greed of the political and corporate world. With amazing twists and turns, psychopathic revelation, and a realistic approach, The Boys successfully becomes a subversive entertaining piece of work.
