The Patriot in the purest Joker style with the face of an unstoppable sociopath.
Homelander, Patriot in Spanish, is the great villain of The Boys, just as he is one of his best characters. Both in the comics and in the Amazon Prime Video television series, Patriot attracts all the attention in each of the scenes in which he appears out of absolute terror of those around him. Seeing the aspect of Patriota in this comic cover, the truth is that it is enough to be afraid of him.
Before Antony Starr donned the Patriot suit and signed one of the best villains on television todaythe first issue of The Boys already let us see that the character was going to be a bloodthirsty and sociopathic tyrant.
It is evident in this cover by the artist Francesco Mattina where we see the Patriot with a deformed smile in the purest Joker style, surrounded by fire and with a mountain of human skulls in the background. Perhaps from there the actor took his famous smile to bring the character to life. It is quite a bit darker than Patriot’s look in the serieswith that US flag behind it that gives it an undeniable extra critical touch, although the series is also very gory and borders on the system when it wants to.
This alternate cover by artist Inhyuk Lee may be most similar to the look of Patriot in the Amazon Prime Video series. The typical handsome, blond and beefy superhero, but with the power to cut you in half with his laser gaze. A constant parody that constantly mixes Superman and Captain America.
The Boys triumphs with its third season
Patriota is undoubtedly one of the great stars of The Boys, but this third season, which is broadcast on Amazon Prime Video, promises to be totally groundbreaking with the character and the future of the show itself. “You could trace the metamythology of the series essentially like the slow unraveling of Patriot,” said writer Erik Kripke in an interview with WGA. “So the writers know, and Antony Starrr is also a big part of this, that eventually, whenever the show climaxes, this guy is going to go full sociopath, and he needs to be stopped before he some kind of apocalyptic event. That’s what we’re building toward.”
