The Boys 3 on Amazon Prime, has made it very clear that Homelander (Antony Starr) is one of the best movie or TV villains in recent pop-culture history, and deserves to be up there with many of the all-time onscreen greats. This is of course thanks to Antony Starr’s great portrayal of the demented superhero, an inverse Superman who in the recent season, is now doing his best Donald Trump impression fighting against the mainstream media and “cancel culture.”
Antony Starr recently shared a fan edit of Homelander and Brightburn’s Brandon Breyer in recognition of Father’s Day. In the three seasons of The Boys, Homelander developed into a narcissistic sociopath, the definition of everything that’s wrong with superheroes (a.k.a. Supes), and perhaps the universe’s worst father, after growing up as a lab rat since childhood.
‘Have two in case you screw the first one up’ – Antony Starr
Antony Starr recently celebrated Father’s Day by reposting an edit by renowned artist Bosslogic on social media. Homelander is seen in the shot with Brightburn’s Brandon, who would be a better fit for The Boys’ antagonist than Ryan. He captioned the post –
“America at least… Paternal bonding is a wonderful thing. Just keep trying dads. Oh and have two in case you screw the first one up”
However, The Boys star didn’t just stop with the Instagram post. Starr turned around his attention to Twitter and posted a Homelander GIF there. The GIF depicts a scene from The Boys Season 2 where Homelander throws his son off the roof to check if his son has powers. A great dad trait indeed.

Homelander was revealed to be the reason Billy Butcher teamed up with Grace Mallory to form the titular squad of Supe-busting vigilantes in season one of The Boys. In brief, Homelander raped Butcher’s wife, Becca, causing her to flee after she got pregnant. While Becca was first thought to have died in childbirth—along with the baby— her Supe son, Ryan Butcher, they lived and remained in secret under the care of Vought until Homelander finds out and decides to try his hand at parenting, as seen in The Boys season 2.
