Superheroes are a huge part of American culture. They fill our favorite comics, inhabit our posters and billboards, and are immortalized on our clothing. They’re on our TVs, in our movies, and coming out of our phones. Meant to represent all things good and pure in the face of evil, their heroic intentions are never questioned, but what if, besides being real, they were bigger deviants than anyone knew? What if the most depraved beings in the world were the ones our kids looked up to? What if one major corporation controlled them all? Well, those are the questions that Amazon Prime’s The Boys both ask and answer and, thanks to creators Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg, the results couldn’t be more entertaining -- especially for those of us who think we've seen it all. Because after any given episode of this mad thing it's clear we haven't seen anything yet.
