Because our world is dark and full of dumbness, Homelander has been trending on Twitter all weekend thanks to a clearly moronic subset of The Boys fans who didn’t realize until five episodes into the third season that he’s the bad guy. Christ, in the first season, the dude lets a plane full of people die and raped Butcher’s wife. This is not a subtle show, folks, and that’s without even getting into the second season where Homelander falls in love with a literal Nazi. Anyway, if you want a terrifying look into how media literacy is basically non-exist, enjoy. (Ryan Broderick)
