    It’s the deep he can’t (likely can but won’t ) take off his diving helm so they gave him a cone hood which is pointed out right after the that panel is incredibly stupid.

    Been watching a lot of youtube videos recent on the backstories, both in the series and in the comics. Next time I get the chance, gonna binge both seasons again
    In the comics, The Deep is like a deep-sea diver. If I recall correctly, Starlight performs oral sex on Homeland, Noir, and Lamplighter when she joins The Seven. There is that iconic cover of Starlight wiping her mouth.

    No one interested in the entertainment business would ask Chace Crawford to cover his face. They made the right call on this version of The Deep.

    He can't remove it. The Helmet is a "curse" because he tried to steal Atlantis treasure or something.

    I think the only really messed up part is The kid Ryan I do feel bad for him, that kids going to need some serious fucking therapy after that shit, I mean he is likely to need it anyways, but as much of a Vile POS Stormfront was, I would feel bad for any kid having to witness that kind of shit especially knowing he was responsible.

    If they go where I think they are going to go with this- that kid is already fucked beyond repair. And it will get worse...

    Well ya but that’s likely all psychosomatic and he could take it off if he got past that as there’s no real magic or curses or any thing in the setting.

    That's The Deep in the comics. Can't take off his diving helmet. In that white outfit it makes him look like a member of the KKK.

    They're not even the same character really. Ennis never took the character seriously and he almost never appears. Its one area where the show is better than the comic.

    Yeah, I can see what you mean, I thought that the whole point of getting him away from Homelander was about giving him a chance. Even as much as it was deserved IMO, I am guessing that image is going to be burned in his mind for a very long time without therapy.

    Hahaha yeah that is what I thought, but then I wondered why it was only one.

    From what I see so far, they made a ton of right decisions with this TV series (in regards of diverting from the comics)

It's not really "sudden".
    Haha, i was thinking the same thing. It was so obvious to me a, there are a lot of allusions to our RL all the time.

    Absolutely loved Stormfront being the personification of alt right and then get rejected wholesale at the end. They even had her bust out the term white genocide with a straight face. Not sure if the character is a white supremacist in the comics but even the name Stormfront is so on the nose.

    In the comic Stormfront is an honest to god Nazi, born in the early 30's. Came to the US as part of operation paperclip, was the base genetics for Homelander.

    Garth Ennis makes fun of superheroes sometimes.

    In the comics it was Homelander, Noir, and A-Train, not Lamplighter.

    Totally agree. The series has a lot more depth and complexity to it than the comic- which was all plot at times in place of characterization.

    Ah, gotcha. Thanks for the correction. Its been a long time. I read this in issues.

    If you didnt know there is a 6 issue mini-series of The Boys called Dear Becky set some 10+ years after the main comic ended.

    The Deep is exactly how I would think Aquaman would feel if Justice League was in any way realistic.
