The Boys, starring Antony Starr, captivated audiences worldwide with its morally ambiguous characters, emphasis on gore and brutality, and stellar performances from the cast. Adapted from the comic book of the same name, the show has taken creative liberties while retaining what made the source material so good. That said, Antony Starr ended up suffering a lifelong scar for a very unfortunate reason.

The show came at a time when superhero movies and shows became one-note and very monotonous, making it a wonderful subversion to all the tropes fans had gotten used to when it came to the superhero genre at that point in time.

Antony Starr Is Truly The Star In The Boys

The Boys stars Antony Starr as Homelander – the most complex and mentally deranged character in the show, whose homicidal tendencies have led to the show’s most shocking yet iconic moments. After all, he was a manufactured super soldier – something that set the source for all the horrors he would commit in the series.

Antony Starr Permanently Scarred Himself After A Mishap At A Supermarket

I had a job when I was 15 working at a supermarket, and I knocked over a stack of plastic coffee cups. In my anger, I threw one at a concrete wall, and it rebounded back into my head and cut my head open. Stupidest way to get a scar, but it’s one that I have.

The Boys‘ fourth season is expected to come out sometime next year, and it promises to be the most diabolical season of the show yet. It remains to be seen whether the fourth season will end up breaking all kinds of records and possibly hearts.
