The Boys Season 3: Why One Character Had Surprising Reaction To V-24
Boy showrunner Eric Kripke explains Hughie's shocking reaction to V-24 in Season 3, Episode 4, "Glorious Five Year Plan."
Based on comics by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys on Amazon Prime takes place in a world where superheroes inject Compound-V into children and then develop it.
In their first two seasons, Billy Butcher, Hughie Campbell and the titular boys struggle to fight Vought International and the corrupt / rude "Supes".
Boys Season 3 introduces Temp-V as V-24, which increases game levels by allowing the user 24 hours.
At the beginning of Season 3 of The Boys, Queen Maeve Butcher gave up three V-24 bowls. Despite his denial and hatred of Supes.
Hughie ignored Butcher and took part of V-24 for himself and later happily teleported.
It will be interesting to see what the impact of the V-24 was on Hughie. Before breaking with Hughie, Butcher experienced various symptoms.
In addition, it is now seen that the toxic masculinity scene, Soldier Boy, has new energy forces that abolish the effects of Compound-V in all its forms.
