How would the characters of Amazon’s The Boys fare in the Marvel or DC Comics universes?

When people ask what The Boys is about, the answer is simple: It’s a TV series about what heroes would be like if they were real. Some of them would be happy saving the world and being good citizens, but others would see this as a job. The unfortunate part is not everyone is good and honorable at their jobs. When you’re out saving lives, you can’t do a terrible job and not expect for there to be consequences. That is, if you’re not one of The Seven.

In Amazon’s The Boys, we saw first-hand what would happen. Most of the superheroes are selfish. They only care about the money their characters generate and the celebrity that comes with it. With that in mind, what would happen if they left their own universe and ventured into the universe of Marvel or DC Comics? In this article we’ll take a look at where each of the characters would fit in and what their fates would be.

Black Noir

Black Noir is a villain plain and simple. If you have the right controls then you have yourself a weapon. In his case, it wouldn’t matter if it’s Marvel or DC Comics, Black Noir would find himself being someone’s weapon.

He’d most likely belong on the Suicide Squad. We can all agree that Amanda Waller would love to get her hands on Black Noir. We’ve seen that he’s more than capable of following instructions. All she’d need to keep him under control is an Almond Joy.
