Get Everything you need to know about the Supersonic In The Boys Season 3!
Like the Justice League, the Amazon Series “The Boys” depicts a team of seven superheroes known as “The Seven.” The team is led by Homelander, the most powerful superhuman in the universe, and other less powerful beings must willingly or unwillingly follow his orders.
As the first season of ‘The Boys’ began, a supe named The Lamplighter retired, and there was an ongoing understudy to add someone to the team to take the position, and there came Starlight, aka Annie January. However, by the end of season one, we were convinced that “The Seven” would never be complete, at least not for a long time, as someone was being killed, either by their adversary Billy The Butcher or Homelander himself, who enjoys terrorizing those around him.
“The Seven” had nearly shrunk to four members in Season 1 after Translucent was killed by the boys and Deep was removed by Madelyn Stillwell after Starlight accused him of sexual assault. A-Train, on the other hand, had been abusively injecting himself with Compound V throughout to amplify his powers and, as a result, became addicted to the chemical, resulting in a heart attack at the end of Season 1.
Fortunately, Stormfront filled this large void in Season 2, managing the affairs of four other supes on his own. Vought International, on the other hand, needed to bring other supes to ‘The Seven’ for PR and branding purposes, so after an attack on Stormfront, they not only re-appointed A-train and Deep, but also elected another supe named Supersonic aka Alex to replace Stormfront after she was declared dead in Season 3.
Supersonic: Who Is He?
Alex, formerly known as the Drummer Boy, was a second-generation Mexican-American who met Starlight in college and dated her on the Capes for Christ circuit. Alex was a member of the musical group Super-Sweet, and their song “Rock My Kiss” was at the top of the charts at the time, but for some reason, the charming cute boy vanished from the scene. He re-entered Vought International’s American Hero Reality Show, the winner of which would be chosen as a member of “The Seven.” Vought International or its PR employees were more concerned with a hero’s public rating than his superhero skills or talents, and thus they would spend a large sum of money to bring on a superhero who has complete public approval.
There could be no better platform to find such talent than a reality show like ‘American Hero,’ as in ‘The Boys,’ where people are glued to their screens.
Alex changed his name to Supersonic and bulked up to increase his chances of winning a competition and landing a spot at ‘The Seven.’ The reality show’s scriptwriters didn’t pass up an opportunity to play with Starlight and Alex’s previous love affair to generate some TRP for the show. During the show’s finale, only three contestants remained, two of whom would be chosen for ‘The Seven.’ Stan Edgar had appointed Starlight as co-captain and given her the authority to make team selections, but Homelander quickly intervened.
He didn’t want another woman on the team because he thought they looked weak, so he chose Supersonic to fill one spot and re-appointed Deep to another. Starlight had to let Silver Kincaid, as well as Moonshadow, leave the show with a heavy heart.
Is Supersonic Gone?
Homelander began acting nefariously as soon as Supersonic joined the team. He never missed an opportunity to tease Hughie by making a joke about Alex and Starlight’s relationship. Hughie felt insecure as soon as Supersonic began spending more time with Starlight, but his attention was diverted when he discovered a way to permanently remove Homelander.
Queen Maeve had told Butcher about an ultimate super-gun that would blow Homelander’s head off, but the team needed time to find that weapon, so Hughie asked Starlight to put up with Homelander’s threat for a little longer. Meanwhile, Starlight became frustrated with Homelander’s remarks and constant attempts to humiliate her, and she decided to form a secret team to assist her in fighting Homelander in the event of an emergency.
Starlight initially approached Maeve to join her secret rebellion, but soon realized that they needed more supes on their side, and thus, in her eagerness, believed that the new supe as well as her ex-boyfriend, Supersonic, could be trusted.
He didn’t betray Starlight, but he was too inexperienced to understand the internal politics of the Vought International or the people who worked for it. He believed A-train could be trusted with their little secret, and so, following Deep and Argument, train’s Supersonic attempted to recruit A-train for their secret team, shortly after which A-train ratted on Starlight and Supersonic to regain Homelander’s loyalty. What Homelander despises the most is people plotting against him.
He wishes to be surrounded by people who adore, pamper, and worship him as if he were a god. There is no place for rebellion in God’s shrine, so Homelander brutally murdered Supersonic without wasting a moment. Supersonic died at the end of “The Boys” Season 3 Episode 4 when Homelander carried Starlight to a terrace following an event. Starlight finally saw Supersonic’s melted face and amputated leg on the terrace, which most likely resulted from coming into contact with Homelander’s laser eyes.
After killing Supersonic, Homelander warned Starlight that if she continued to plan and plot against him, she would face serious consequences. He wouldn’t hesitate to kill or injure Hughie in the same way he butchered Supersonic, and no one would stop him, especially after dealing with Stan Edgar, who made Starlight the co-captain in the first place. Nonetheless, what’s ironic about this situation is that no matter how hard Vought International’s PR agents try to get a complete supe-team, one or two members of ‘The Seven’ are always missing or found dead. Maybe the team is cursed, and it’s probably called Homelander.
