Prime Video, the streaming platform, is building anticipation for the next chapter of The Boys with character introductions that shed light on the upcoming college-aged supes. Among them, one stands out for its unique and chilling ability that promises to redefine the level of gore in the series.
Portrayed by Jaz Sinclair, Marie Moreau is an 18-year-old supe with a macabre power – the ability to manipulate and weaponize her own blood. The eerie yet formidable power aligns perfectly with the imagery seen in promotional shots released so far. As The Boys continues its legacy of introducing supes with unconventional abilities, Marie’s inclusion is bound to leave a lasting impact.
A Roster of Distinct Powers
The new generation of supes includes several other intriguing characters, each with their own set of extraordinary abilities:
- Chance Perdomo portrays Andre Anderson, a junior at Godolkin University, who possesses magnetic powers and carries the lineage of the famous superhero Polarity.
- Lizze Broadway takes on the role of Emma Meyer, also known as Little Cricket, who can shrink herself to miniature proportions.
- Maddie Phillips embodies Cate Dunlap, a junior at Godolkin University, with the power to manipulate and control individuals through a touch of her hands.
London Thor and Derek Luh collaboratively portray Jordan Li, a competitive student whose shape-shifting ability allows him to change between male and female forms, each with unique powers. Asa Germann’s character, Sam, grapples with internal struggles while possessing super strength and invulnerability. Patrick Schwarzenegger enters the fray as Luke Riordan, alias Golden Boy, whose fiery ability turns his entire body into a blazing spectacle.
The Creative Force Behind the Show
Created by Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, The Boys draws inspiration from “We Gotta Go Now,” a comic book story arc by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. This series cleverly satirizes both the X-Men universe and the iconic Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters. The upcoming Gen V promises an R-rated experience that delves into the lives of competitive supes, testing the boundaries of their physical, sexual, and moral limits.
Mark your calendars, as The Boys Gen V is set to debut on Prime Video on September 29. Prepare for an irreverent, boundary-pushing exploration of the lives of these hormonal and fierce supes as they navigate a world filled with darkness and carnage.
