Today let’s break down the so-called Superhero’s character and know what makes Homelander so scary and evil.
When you look at Homelander, who’s the first superhero that comes to your mind? Most probably the answer will be Superman.
Homelander and Superman have a lot of similarities. The characters are almost identical at first glance. It is believed that Homelander’s character was initially created as a parody of Superman.
Homelander is extremely ambitious. He wants to be at the top. The so-called superhero strives to showcase himself as the savior of mankind.
Homelander wants full control of the team of superheroes (Supes) and also wants to establish his control on other institutional bodies.
The Supe’s ego is another big problem and threat for the world. Over time Homelander’s powers, potential, public praises have developed him into an ulta egoistic individual.
From killing his close associates to young team members, Homelander can do anything to satisfy his ego.
Even the cruelest of villains show some empathy. But our so-called superhero even lacks basic empathy for people.
You must be thinking how a traumatic childhood can be the reason for being scary and evil. But Homelander’s traumatic childhood is the root cause of everything.
