The second season of The Boys is already available from September 4th on Amazon Prime platforms.
The Boys is a satire on the world of pop culture strengthened by the intrusion of new technologies, which have popularized characters and behaviors previously hidden and protected by fans of the old comic book era, who were the first to understand the transformative and powerful magnificence hidden in their onomatopoeia of the history of superheroes.
While the program can be read as a story about an evil Superman, it is more broadly interested in the power and toxicity of celebrities and popular culture. The Seven are flawed in ways that only make their superhero status worse; the layers and tights that keep them in their vices also keep them miserable. And normal people encourage so-called heroes while taking everything away from them.
The series doesn’t pretend to make profound comments, but it’s smart about what it has to say. Superheroes, and the corporate empires built around them, are an extremely American invention, both in The Boys’ fiction and in real life. AndJoshua Rivera – The Verge.com
As season 2 progresses, personality cults prove to be a more cheering force than any superpower, as fans can be motivated in ways as toxic as any political party can imagine.

Popular culture has entered a golden age where the great productions of cinema and television are somehow tied to what is requested by the great public eager for reflective stories that lead us to imagine that we are those heroes. From that hypothesis, this series breaks with the dangerous idealization of the magnitude of having super powers and nothing else applies to real life than the madness that comes from having resources and powers without limits of control.
Could it be that the second season solves the eternal question: are heroes born or are they made?
