The Boys

"The Boys" looks interesting:

The premise is a CIA black ops team is put together to "take care" of any superheroes that get out of line. I know its based off a comic series.

--- Quote --- The series is set in a world where superheroes exist. However, most of the superheroes in the series' universe are corrupted by their celebrity status and often engage in reckless behavior, compromising the safety of the world. The story follows a small clandestine CIA squad, informally known as "The Boys", led by Butcher and also consisting of Mother's Milk, the Frenchman, the Female, and new addition "Wee" Hughie Campbell, who are charged with monitoring the superhero community, often leading to gruesome confrontations and dreadful results.

Strange as it sounds: It absolutely is ...  :?

Just watched a blonde all-American Superman-clone called "The Homelander" hover over a crowd at a pray-a-thon (or whatever those things are called) citing Psalm 58:10 to raucous cheers. Very contemporary social commentary, one could say ...

Great fun so far - that is, when the laughter isn't sticking in your throat.

The comic it's based on is awesome too. Created by Garth Ennis, the same sick fuck who gave us Preacher.

Ennis had a long run on Hellblazer as well.

Ennis always struck me as an edge-lord teenager valuing gore and spectacle over substance in the same vein as Millar.
