We know Soldier Boy is on the way in Season 3 of The Boys - but what about other characters from the comic series that haven't made the leap yet? What about Jack from Jupiter, the original Seven member who was replaced with Translucent for the television show? What about Tek Knight, the Batman-Iron Man hybrid with a fist-sized tumor in his brain?
There's a large cast of characters in The Boys' comic universe, and while there's no guarantee that they'll all make the jump from page to screen, there are some that fans are just sick of waiting for. Seriously, where is the Legend at? And could we get the real Love Sausage onto the show, please? We know adaptations are never one-to-one retellings of the source material, but there are just some things the heart wants. So, here are the comic characters from The Boys we want to see when Season 3 rolls around.
Tek Knight happens to be The Boys' amalgamation of both Iron Man and Batman, and, knowing he is from a hyper-violent satire series famous for lampooning the big boys at Marvel and DC, this character really doesn't pull any punches when it comes to making fun of both super-rich heroes. He's a technologically enhanced billionaire, but with his kid sidekick Laddio, Tek Knight has slightly more Bruce Wayne than Tony Stark in his creative DNA.
He's already been mentioned on the television show a few times and bringing him onto the series could open the door to some really solid jokes at the expense of both the Dark Knight and Ol' Shellhead. It's unclear whether the comic arc of him having a fist-sized tumor in his head that makes him want to fornicate with nearly everything he sees necessarily fits with the show's plan moving forward, but any version of the character could expand the TV show's superhero universe.Great addition?
Where do Billy Butcher and the rest of the Boys team get all of their dirty information about Vought and the Seven? Well, in the comics, a good amount of that knowledge comes from a man known as "The Legend."
The Legend is a former Vought employee who created comic book stories that sold the general public on the idea of superheroes by telling readers the kinds of stories they wanted to hear. Though he has a very close relationship with Queen Maeve, he works with the Boys to take down the evil heroes who work for Vought after faulty rifles produced by the company lead to his son's demise during the Vietnam War.Great addition?
Yes... a version of Love Sausage did technically already appear in Season 2 of The Boys when the group breaks into Sage Grove to try and figure out what Vought is up to at the facility. But that wasn't even close to the Love Sausage of the comics, and that version of the character is awesome.
This former Russian superhero was a member of the superteam known as the Glorious Five Year Plan and aids the Boys when they venture into the former USSR on a mission. Anyone who manages to get on the good side of both Billy Butcher and Hughie with their good-natured personality alone is alright in our book.Great addition?
James Godolkin And The G-Men
We know that the previously announced The Boys spinoff show is going to pull its inspiration from James Godolkin and the G-Men, who happen to be a direct parody of Charles Xavier and the X-Men. But that doesn't mean a backdoor pilot of sorts can't feature into Season 3 of the main series.
It is unclear just how faithful that TV spinoff will be to the G-Men of the comics series, but knowing Godolkin's skin-crawling history in the comic, it is safe to say the show could wade into some seriously controversial territory if the production team wants to do so. With X-Men movies having been around for two whole decades now, it's safe to say the superhero team is ripe for the picking no matter which way the show goes.Great addition?
