The Boys is an American media franchise based on the original comic book series The Boys created by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson. The franchise consists of several television series, short film, web series, and other forms of media. The most notable The Boys adaptation is the first television series created for Amazon Prime. The story is set in a world where superheroes are artificially created by the Vought corporation and instead of harboring all the best traits that humanity has to offer they are incredibly corrupt, dangerous, selfish, and overall terrible human beings. The only real resistance the so-called Supes have is through a group of people dubbed “The Boys”.
