That scene was one of the most tense moments in recent television history. The worst part is that even though what followed was only a fantasy, the fact that he is fantasizing about such wholesale slaughter means he is only one push away from actualizing it.
@I Are Lebo, what is this from??
@Zolo, I have the same question
@Zolo, The Boys on prime video
@I Are Lebo, you could go out for ice cream with homelander and it'd be a tense moment
@Kangaroo Jacked, oh my gosh just seeing him would be terrifying.
That actor is pretty good, but if he went out in costume he’d be scary af.
@Zolo, SPOILER ALERT
The Boys, on Amazon Prime. One of the big characters is Homelander, who is essentially Superman (invulnerable, flies, laser eyes), except as a total psychopath hidden behind the hero image. He kills innocents, brutalizes people with his bare hands, slaughters with his lasers, and even raped a woman.
In this scene, the black soldier flips him off, and we jump into what is revealed after to be a fantasy scene as Homelander sweeps the crowd with his lasers, slaughtering hundreds of people in a matter of seconds.
It’s terrifying because we are expecting him to do it for real. Another character watching (who has been exposed to Homelander’s evil) was so stressed by thinking violence was going to happen that she tore some of her own hair out.
Honelander is the type of psychopath that is perpetually on the verge of extreme violence, and because of his powers, basically no one can stop him. If he wants to kill you, you’re going to die. You can’t run or hide.
@I Are Lebo, thanks for the info, I'm going to have to start watching this
@I Are Lebo, SPOILER ALERT ASSHOLES
@Zolo, if you don’t have an amazon subscription, you can find it for free on watchcartoonsonline.tv. Just make sure your ad blockers and anti virus are up to date. The site has annoying pop ups rather than malicious viruses, but still. Use protection.
@ImNotRacistBut, the scene is literally in the trailer for season 2, but I added a spoiler warning.
@I Are Lebo, this last episode was so wild, I expected the twist that stormfront would be a huge racist, did not expect her to be the original supe
@I Are Lebo, lol thanks. I didn’t see the trailer so it more or less caught me off guard and I loved it
@I Are Lebo, it’s so good. Edge of my seat the whole time. The tiny nuances of his sociopathic personality are just great. Like the thing he has with milk because he never knew a mother’s love. Just all builds into this insane and terrifying character. One of the scariest characters from any medium of fiction I can ever remember
@jouze, I called her being a Nazi after that incident in the apartment complex with Kimiko’s brother.
@ImNotRacistBut, having seen the trailer, I’d been on edge the whole season wondering when Honelander would take off the nice guy gloves.
It’s inevitable. As soon as he loses the public’s support, he will become a despotic tyrant. Although I predict that Stormfront is going to kill him, and then all the supes will have to band together to take her down.
@SquilliamFancydong, I would go so far as to say he’s the scariest fictional character I’ve ever seen.
I’d rather hang out with Darth Vader, Freddy Krueger, and Pennywise, all while making them as mad at me as possible, before I would want to meet Homelander in the most positive setting possible.
Are we talking Dino nugs and macaroni? Cuz I will straight murder someone that tried to deny me that
