Stormfront is actually a man, the fish-man with his head stuck in a spacesuit, A-Train with white skin … Many of The Boys characters are very different from their comic book counterparts!
If the series broadcast on Amazon Prime Video follows the plot of the comics, Black Noir could be revealed as the clone of Homelander in season 3 of The Boys. Nonetheless, it often happens that showrunners Eric Kripke, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg take creative liberties and alter certain elements of the comics. One only has to look at the look of the members of the Seven in the comics, some of whom are far removed from the protagonists featured in the series. Without further ado, discover the face that your favorite superheroes should have according to the comics!
The fish man
One of the most important changes concerns the fish man! This rejected and excluded member of the Seven team initially wears a diving suit – which is more convenient for breathing underwater. However, in the series, the latter does not need an accessory to inhale and exhale properly at the bottom of the oceans, since it takes advantage of sublime gills embedded in the belly. Regarding Black Noir, the representation of his character in The Boys is rather faithful to that of the comics: he wears a full black costume and his head is hardly ever revealed.

The most significant change in style concerns Stormfront. As this photo reveals, the Nazi character is portrayed as a surly and massive man in the comics. The showrunners chose to put a charismatic woman with a rather sympathetic face instead. It is an idea that we fully approve since it allows to offer women leading roles within the series. As for Maeve, the heroine redesign for the series The Boys is just as interesting: the protagonist is portrayed as a bimbo in the comics, the Maeve of the series is classy and just as convincing. If there are any major differences between the original story and the show aired on Amazon Prime, find out why the series The Boys so successful!
