The Boys Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

There are a lot of differences between Amazon's adaptation of "The Boys" and the source material. The depraved supes are little more than caricatures in the comic, and that's by design. "The Boys" co-creator Garth Ennis has vocally trashed superhero comics for years, even bemoaning their dominance in the comic book medium in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. For the Amazon series, a lot more humanity needed to be injected into the super-powered employees of Vought International. As a result, Amazon's "The Boys" features supes with a lot more depth, making the characters much more susceptible to astrological interpretation.

More now than the empty bullies they are in the comics, the members of the Seven may suffer similar deficiencies in morals, and most may be flush with corruption and abusive perversions, but they still enjoy distinct personalities. At the same time, there are plenty of characters in "The Boys" who lack any sort of superpowers, like Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and his recruits. Not to mention there's always the people working at Vought who don't have any superpowers and who — for the most part — spend most of their days praying they don't end up alone in an office with Homelander (Antony Starr) when he's in a bad mood. So, from supes to corporate tools to underground supes hunters, here are "The Boys" characters that match your zodiac sign. 

Aries: Billy Butcher

The supes of "The Boys" are not like the superheroes of Marvel and DC. Not only are they obviously corrupt and — unlike members of the Justice League or the Avengers — don't seem to care all that much about helping people, but in some ways they even seem more powerful than their Marvel and DC counterparts. Just about every supe we see in "The Boys" seems to display some level of super strength and endurance. Folks like Homelander have a lot more, obviously, but even supes whose front row powers are different, such as Starlight and Translucent, prove to be tougher and stronger than everyone else. It's almost as if super strength and endurance are part of the Vought supes' "starter package" and everything else comes later.

This is all to point out why — if you fall under the sign of Aries –  Billy Butcher is your "The Boys" character. One of the signature qualities of Aries is that they're natural, charismatic leaders that people can't help but follow. If that didn't describe Butcher perfectly, then how else would he be able to get anyone at all to work with him? Going up against any supe means going up against someone who could probably kill you with a single punch. Beyond that, as we've extensively seen in "The Boys," going along with Butcher's crusade also brings with it almost no resources, no backup, and no gratitude. The entire operation depends on Butcher's leadership.

Taurus: The Deep

We know what you're thinking — since fish represent Pisces, shouldn't that be the Deep's (Chace Crawford) sign? Well, that might fit symbolically, but not practically. The show's pathetic reflection of DC's Aquaman is your character if you're a Taurus, but don't worry — that doesn't necessarily say anything bad about you. It just means this aquatic supe takes things too far and becomes both a predator and an abject failure as a result.

People falling under the sign of the excess are all about the rewards. Sure, who doesn't like a reward? To a Taurus, though, the destination is the whole point. No silly adages about "what you learn along the way" are going to elicit anything from a Taurus but laughter. They want the prize.

His obsession with reward is precisely what makes the Deep into an awful person, and it's what makes him miserable after his fall from grace. When he sexually assaults Starlight (Erin Moriarty) early in the series, he sees it as his right — his reward for being a part of the Seven. When the word of his crime gets him booted from the team, the fact that the coveted pleasures and prizes of being a premiere Vought supe are denied him is what fuels his misery, as well as what drives him to find his way back to the limelight.

Gemini: Stan Edgar

Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito) is not the most obvious of Geminis. People falling under the sign are known for being masters of gab. Many of them never stop talking except to sleep, and some of them may actually keep going afterward. In contrast, Edgar is often depicted as stoic and saying little more than he has to, just like Esposito's signature villain, Gus Fring of "Breaking Bad" and "Better Call Saul" fame. 

However, the reason you're Stan Edgar if you're a Gemini is because of a more important aspect of that particular sign. The most talkative Gemini aren't flapping their mouths just to hear their own voices — they want to learn. Geminis are people of sharp intellects who want to know everything there is to know about the people around them, and that's where Edgar fits in. He may not talk a mile a minute, but Stan Edgar is, in his own way, just as curious of those around him as the more characteristic motormouth Geminis. 

Of course, while most who fall under the sign of the twins collect all of this information so they can share it with their friends and family, Edgar has a much more practical use for that data. Edgar uses it to make money, tear his enemies down, and shield himself and Vought from harm.

Cancer: Mother's Milk

If you were born between June 21 and July 22, falling under the Cancer sign, then your "The Boys" character is Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso). Why? Well, if you know anything about this summer sign, then it should be obvious. Actually, it's kind of in the name. 

Cancer signs are known for sticking to their roots, focusing on their families, and making those families as big as they can. Throughout "The Boys," Mother's Milk's family is all that he's about. He's desperate to get back to his wife and daughter. Even before Butcher convinces him to come back to work for him, Mother's Milk follows his caretaking urges by working with troubled kids.

Ironically, Mother's Milk's need for family is likely part of what gets him to come back to Butcher's crew and to stick with it. As much as he may not want to admit it, Mother's Milk sees Butcher, Frenchie (Tomer Capon), Hughie (Jack Quaid), and Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) as yet another extension of his family. Sure, the whole fugitive thing helps keep him underground with the rest of the Boys as well, but it's clear again and again that Mother's Milk cares about his teammates in ways that Butcher never will.

Leo: A-Train

You have to wonder if A-Train (Jessie T. Usher) realizes one of what must be the cruelest ironies of his existence. After all, he is a man concerned, above all else, with being seen and recognized. However, at the same time he is a man whose distinguishing quality is the ability to move too fast to be seen. 

Some supes want control, some want rewards, and some just like inflicting pain. A-Train isn't a sadist, and he isn't power-hungry. A-Train quite simply wants to be in the spotlight. He wants to be the best, and he wants to be recognized as the best. He knows age will eventually creep up on him and that another speedster like Shockwave (Mishka Thébaud) is destined to replace him. It's his insecurity over his inevitable fall that pushes A-Train to abuse Compound V and to hide his relationship with Popclaw (Brittany Allen), whose status as a C-Lister supe embarrasses him. 

The Leos of the world must lay claim to A-Train as their "The Boys" avatar. To many who fall under the Leo sign, nothing is more important than being seen and how they're seen. They're the performers of the zodiac. While many members of the Seven often wind up acting more like celebrities than world-savers, to A-Train, nothing is more important than the public recognition that comes with the job. 

Virgo: Ashley Barrett

If you're a Virgo, then your "The Boys" character isn't one of the Boys or one of the supes. Instead, your character is one who, in some ways, holds more power than most supes. Ashley Barrett (Colby Minifie) is often treated as little more than a nuisance in the first season, but once Homelander murders Madelyn Stillwell (Elisabeth Shue), someone needs to step into her shoes, professionally speaking. 

Sure, she can't benchpress trucks or shoot beams out of her eyes, but whenever characters like A-Train or Starlight find themselves on Vought's bad side, it's Barrett who has all the power over them. Ultimately, it is Barrett who will decide what happens when it comes to the question of whether the supes will have some chance of redemption in the corporation's eyes or if they'll end up in the same disgraceful limbo as the Deep. 

The only way Barrett can handle such a job is by being precise, thorough, and efficient. Barrett probably sleeps very little, considering how much time she spends promoting Vought's supes and covering up their indiscretions. Once Barrett accomplishes that task, she also spends time recording all those indiscretions and filing them away should she ever need to hold them over the heads of her super-powered coworkers. The critical eye and methodical thoroughness she displays are all hallmarks of the Virgo, and it remains to be seen whether they'll eventually get her killed. 

Libra: Hughie

Some people just can't be alone, and a lot of those people are Libras. People falling under the Libra sign often seem like they are exceptionally selfless individuals because so much of their lives are focused on others. If you're a Libra, then your most likely avatar on "The Boys" is Hughie Campbell, the show's everyman. 

Hughie's journey in "The Boys" starts because of a partnership. More specifically, it begins because of the death of a partner, his girlfriend Robin (Jess Salgueiro). A-Train unintentionally kills Robin while running at super-speed under the influence of Compound V. It's Robin's death that puts Hughie on the path to meet Billy Butcher, have a confrontation with Translucent (Alex Hassell), and become a fixture in "The Boys."

It is likely in part because of Hughie's terminal Libra-ness that he stays with the Boys despite the constant lies and manipulation from Billy Butcher. Hughie needs the found family he discovers with this group of fugitives, especially in the wake of Robin's death. 

Scorpio: Black Noir

If anyone in the Seven is more feared than Homelander, it's Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell). While Noir is often seen as the Batman of The Seven, he's much more physically powerful, even more enigmatic, and certainly a lot deadlier. There are few clues to the motivations behind Black Noir's actions, but one clear thing is that he's the Scorpio of "The Boys." 

To many Scorpios, there's no more objectionable idea than that of a moral "gray area." In other words, there is right and wrong. If you are an ally, Scorpios will do anything for you. If you are an enemy, you deserve whatever bad things are coming. Black Noir personifies this kind of black-and-white thinking. He shows no hesitation in killing enemies — including other supes — if he feels they're working against the interests of Vought. Scorpios are also some of the best investigators, and Noir certainly is the best investigator of the Seven as everyone from Homelander to A-Train to Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) has huge blind spots. Black Noir tracks down his prey better than anyone else because he allows for no distractions.

While it's usually his ruthlessness we see, Noir's black-and-white thinking explains the few — often hilarious — moments of sensitivity we see from him. In the Season 2 episode "Over the Hills with the Swords of a Thousand Men," Noir is the only supe to show sympathy to the Deep for the death of the sperm whale Lucy. To Noir, the Deep remains an ally. 

Sagittarius: Stormfront

We know this is not great news for anyone to receive, but the Sagittarius is the most likely home of Stormfront (Aya Cash). The social media savvy Stormfront, who is the replacement for the late Translucent, enters Season 2 of "The Boys" coming off like the most woke woman on this side of TikTok. 

However, we eventually learn the dark secret that Stormfront is not only a lot older than she looks — having been born in 1919 — but she's an unapologetic white supremacist. In fact, thanks to her advanced age, she worked hand in hand with the most abominable Nazis that World War II-era Germany had to offer. She tries to bring her brand of hate to the Seven with the ultimate plan of using it to dominate America but thankfully finds herself in no condition to dominate anyone by the end of the season. 

Obviously, being a Sagittarius is not at all synonymous with being a hateful racist. However, those falling under the sign of Sagittarius are known for their tendency to wander, as well as their search for truth. Stormfront is certainly a wanderer, having been "wandering" since the death of the Third Reich, and she did seek a deeper truth — it's just that the "truth" she's accepted is horrible, detestable lie. 

Capricorn: Madelyn Stillwell

If you're a Capricorn, then sadly your "The Boys" character is no longer a part of the show, except in the twisted fantasies of Homelander. The former Senior Vice President of Hero Management at Vought International, Stillwell is the one who used to send the members of the Seven and other supes working for Vought on the kinds of missions — such as blackmail and assassination operations — that they wouldn't ever advertise to the public. Homelander shows an unsettling fascination with Stillwell from the beginning of "The Boys," something the executive uses to her advantage. Unfortunately, it's part of what gets her murdered by Homelander in the Season 1 finale.

Capricorns are the realists of the Zodiac. They're ambitious, pragmatic, and intensely hard workers. All of these attributes perfectly describe Stillwell, who is not depraved or sadistic like many of the supes she manages. However, she is still more than willing to do horrific things if that's what will serve her, and Vought's, best interests. 

Aquarius: Starlight

When Starlight joins the Seven, she brings light, both figuratively and literally, to the team. Before her addition, the team's roster includes maniacs, unrepentant murderers, and sexual predators. Even Queen Maeve, who is generally a good person but has been cruelly dominated by Homelander's threats against her loved ones, is portrayed as little more than a cynical husk of her former self. The arrival of Starlight gives the Seven a member who genuinely wants to make the world a better place, and that's why we know if you're an Aquarius, Starlight is your "The Boys" representative.

Of course, the horrors and evils Starlight faces start to send her down the same road as Maeve. By the end of Season 2, Starlight is not the same bright-eyed, eager recruit that she is in the series premiere. However, she's also far from giving up. Just like your characteristic Aquarian who wants chiefly for the world to be a safe and forgiving place for its inhabitants, Starlight is still fighting the good fight. Considering the victory she helps realize against Stormfront and Homelander in the Season 2 finale, she's on her way to fighting even harder for a better world.

Pisces: Homelander

If you're a Pisces, then one of the hardest battles you fight on a daily basis is to not instinctively act on your feelings. Pisces are by no means inherently unintelligent, but often they feel things so passionately it can be nearly impossible not to make decisions based on the emotions that arise. A Pisces may very well be the kind of person who will quit a job on the spot over a perceived slight, even if they know they financially can't afford to do so. Sometimes that can turn out to be a good decision — although often, it does not.

That's why if you're a Pisces, then Homelander is your avatar in "The Boys." If there's one battle this dark reflection of Superman can't seem to win, it's the one he fights against his feelings. After decades of knowing himself only as the most physically powerful man on the planet, not to mention being raised in a lab, Homelander's psyche is a twisted wasteland. A single negative emotion is now all Homelander needs to murder or to make another, even more damaging decision. Like, say, deciding to go against the wishes of Vought to raise his super-powered son or starting a passionate relationship with a white supremacist.
