Is Supersonic dead in The Boys? Who Killed Supersonic and why? Well, the last episode of The Boys was full of cliffhangers.
First, we saw Homelander join forces with Victoria Neuman and go against the CEO of Vought Stand Edger and managed to push Edger to resign temporarily.
We also saw that Homelander was troubling Starlight from the beginning of The Boys Season 3, first by the inclusion of Deep in The Seven and then in The Boys Season 3 Episode 4 when he killed Supersonic.
So Why did Homelander kill Supersonic? Well, read along to know the details.
The Boys: Is Supersonic dead? Who Killed Supersonic?
Yes! Supersonic is dead in The Boys, and Homelander killed him.
Supersonic was one of the new recruits of The Seven after winning the reality American superhero reality show.
Supersonic’s real name was Alex. Alex(Supersonic) and Annie(Starlight) both were childhood friends, and Supersonic was Annie’s first boyfriend.
In The Boys Season 3, we witness that Homelander always tried to make things difficult for Annie and Hughie from the beginning.
First, Homelander used to pass remarks about Starlight and Supersomic’s past relationships to tease Hughie, which worked up to a certain point cause Hughie got agitated with Homelander.
Soon Hughie found out what Butcher was planning, and he thought of tagging along with him to find a weapon that could kill Homelander.
But until they find the secret weapon, Hughie tells his girlfriend Starlight to handle Homelander’s tantrums for a few more days.
But things got way out of hand when Homelander forcefully declared a relationship between him and Starlight on national television for TV ratings.
He kept poking about Starlight and Supersonic’s relationship and also passed remarks about Hughie and Starlight’s relationship.
All these made things difficult for Starlight, and she thought she must establish a team within the Seven to stop Homelander.
When Starlight reached out to Queen Maeve, she heard that it was Maeve’s idea to kill Homelander with a Supe gun which is why she had given the coordinates to the Butcher to find that gun which could end Himelander once and for all.
But Starlight and Maeve soon realized that they would soon need more Supes on their side if they were going against Homelander.
So Starlight went to Supersonic and told him that she would require his help when She, Maeve, Hughie and others would go against Homelander.
Supersonic promised to help Starlight whenever required.
But the next thing that Supersonic did cost his life.
After an internal meeting, we saw Deep and A-Train had an ugly fight that time. Homelander took Deep’s side and insulted A-Train.
A-Train was furious at that point, but Supersonic came to his rescue.
Supersonic thought of informing A-Train about the secret rebellion within The Seven that they are planning against Homelander.
But Supersonic was unaware that A-Train is nobody but Homelander’s pet dog, so he didn’t fully comprehend the internal politics inside The Seven and got himself killed by Homelander.
After hearing about the secret plan, A-Train informed everything to Homelander to be in his good books again.
Therefore, when Homelander learned about all the secret planning and plotting against him, he thought of teaching a lesson to Starlight and Maeve by killing Supersonic.
Well, if you have watched the past three seasons of The Boys, you would know that Homelander doesn’t like people planning and plotting against him.
Especially he hates Billy Butcher, Hughie, Starlight, and Maeve, who were responsible for injuring Stormfront, Homelander’s girlfriend in Season 2, who died in season 3 due to an injury she obtained on the finale of The Boys Season 2.
Therefore when Homelander hears about the secret plan, he thinks of setting an example so that the individuals in The Seven and Vought can comprehend that he was the leader and anyone who tries to go against him will have the same fate as Supersonic.
Therefore Homelander brutally killed Supersonic, and he didn’t stop there. He amputated Supersonic’s left leg and melted Supersonic face with his leaser eyes.
After killing Supersonic, Homelander took Starlight to the site and showed her what he had done to Supersonic.
After seeing the state in which Supersonic was in, Starlight was terrified.
Homelander then warned that if she ever crossed paths with him, he would do the same with Hughie.
So what do you think will happen next? Will Butcher, Starlight, Hughie, Maeve and others be able to stop Homelander? Well, let us know in the comments below and stay tuned to MediaScrolls for more such updates related to The Boys Season 3.
