34% Of The Boys Fans Agree This Is Their Favorite Character

With the recent release of the Season 3 trailer, fans of "The Boys" have begun the countdown to the series' return on June 3. The fandom is abuzz with theories and speculation about what lies ahead for both The Seven, the corporate-owned superteam, and The Boys, the rebels working to expose The Seven's corruption. The trailer also gave first looks at a Suped-up Billy Butcher (Karl Urban) and the newest character to the series, Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles).

While Billy and Soldier Boy are understandably hogging much of the spotlight, the series showcases a sizable number of characters that fans love — or love to hate. After all, who expected to enjoy seeing an unapologetically awful, Nazi supervillain? But actor Aya Cash makes her character fascinating to watch. With so many characters — played perfectly by their actors — it's tough to pick a favorite. A couple of years back, when the series was still young, Redditor u/miskyop asked people to do just that. Their survey attracted an impressive 477 participants who made some interesting choices.

There's some love for a fighter and a swimmer

At the bottom of the pack, with only 3.1% of the vote, is Mother's Milk (Laz Alonso). As part of The Boys, Mother's Milk provides the team with his range of expertise in combat, field medicine, and deductive reasoning. Even though he lacks powers, M.M.'s size and martial talents have proven invaluable even when the gang faces a Supe. With The Boys' criminal pasts erased at the end of Season 2, it will be interesting to see how Billy pulls M.M. away from his family and back into danger.

Next up is The Deep (Chace Crawford), who only snagged 4.4% of the vote. Once The Seven's resident Aquaman, The Deep was forced from the team after Starlight (Erin Moriarty) went public with the details of The Deep sexually assaulting her. Hoping to earn back his spot on the team, The Deep embraces the teachings of the Church of the Collective — a cult with potential links to Vought International, the corporate owners of The Seven. The Deep rejected those teachings at the end of Season 2 after his re-admission to The Seven was denied.

A killer and a chemist rank higher on the list of favorites

Though not one to shout for joy, Black Noir (Nathan Mitchell) would likely be pleased to have received twice as many votes (8.8%) as his former aquatic teammate. Perhaps the most lethal of The Seven, at least when it comes to stealthier kills, Black Noir is the go-to for bloody and quiet business. Ironically, despite silent deadliness, Noir has shown considerable compassion throughout the series' two seasons, offering condolences to The Deep when Lucy the whale was killed. Seemingly impervious to most attacks, Noir was brought low by an Almond Joy candy bar at the end of Season 2. While all signs point to him being alive for Season 3, there's no telling how much damage his nut allergy inflicted on his body.

Breaking out of the single digits with a respectable 23% of the vote is Frenchie (Tomer Capone), The Boys' connection to various criminal elements and enterprises. The former assassin and self-styled jack-of-all-trades has shown himself to be quite an adept chemist, recreating the substance that made Translucent's (Alex Hassell) skin impenetrable and applying it to sniper rounds. Frenchie spent most of Season 2 trying to communicate with The Female (Karen Fukuhara) and incorporate her into the team, albeit with varying levels of success.

The leaders fight for first place

In second place, with 26.8% of the votes, is the leader of The Seven: Homelander (Antony Starr). Much like Stormfront, Homelander is as diabolical as they come, constantly preening and killing whoever dares stand in his way. Throughout the series' first two seasons, it's made abundantly clear that Homelander has two main goals. Like any true autocrat, he requires the complete adoration of the masses, which is as vital to him as oxygen. Second, Homelander is intent on forcing his young son to love him and follow in his footsteps. As Season 2 came to a close, it appears Homelander's grip on sanity — as tenuous as it was — is beginning to slip.

Given his current state, it's probably best that Homelander doesn't know that his nemesis, Karl Urban's Billy Butcher, easily claimed first place with a whopping 33.7% of the vote. As the leader of The Boys, the Supe-hating Billy's driving motivation is vengeance. He initially targeted Homelander because he believed the Supe was responsible for the death of his wife. Now, with the knowledge that Becca (Shantel VanSanten) is alive, Billy is pulling out all the stops to ensure Homelander never gets close to Becca or their son. With the reveal of his new Supe-powers in the trailer, it will be interesting to see how Billy reconciles the hate he has long held for Supes now that he's become one himself.
