A former C.I.A. operative turned vigilante, Billy Butcher is as charming as he is cunning. He’s a force of nature, who can talk almost anyone into anything, either through a smile or brute force – or sometimes both. He’s consumed by one mission in life: to destroy superheroes. But this personal vendetta is driven by his hatred for one Supe in particular: Homelander. Butcher’s determined to get revenge on Homelander, no matter the cost. And he won’t let anyone or anything stand in his way.
With the face of a movie star and the superpowers of a God, Homelander is the greatest superhero alive, and the leader of The Seven. Not only can he fly, he’s got superstrength and superhearing, and he can see through almost anything with his X-ray vision and then destroy it with his laser eyes. On the surface, he’s affable, modest, and sincere; the ultimate Boy Scout, an all-American, God-fearing patriot. But just like mere mortals, even superheroes have secrets.
