The most exciting part of the recently released trailer of The Boys Season 3 was undoubtedly the first scene where we saw Billy Butcher’s eyes first glowing and then emitting the same laser that Homelander possesses which clearly shows that ‘Monsieur Charcutier’ has undergone some serious upgrades in his powers from the last season. This heightens the excitement for season 3 even further.
The Boys posted a picture of Billy Butcher’s glowing eyes with the caption: “Soon, it’ll be time to level the playing field” on their social media handles. We also saw him throw someone away with his bare hands and this just proves his potential going on in the series. So far, we have rarely seen the full potential of Billy Butcher’s powers and it seems like he is finally ready to face the Supe that he despises the most, Homelander.
In the comic books, Billy Butcher, like all the other characters, is injected with a special variant of Compound V which gives him superhuman strength, durability and increased lifespan. That is true for the TV series as well. However, the biggest difference between the series and the comic books is that in comics, Billy Butcher never possessed such powers as laser beams in his eyes.
This means that there are now 3 supes in the Boys universe with Laser eyed superpowers – Homelander, Billy and Homelander’s son Ryan.
The trailer confirmed that Soldier Boy and Crimson Countess played by Jensen Ackles and Crimson Countess respectively will be the newest addition of supes to Boys season 3 while Annie, Klara, Hughie, Deep, Kimiko, Mother’s Milk and A-Train all return for the threequel of the much-loved series.
The first and the second episodes of The Boys season 3 will be streaming on Amazon Prime from 3rd June onwards. It is definitely one of the most awaited Superhero series of the year and fans have great expectations from it.
