After the ending of The Boys Season 3 Episode 4, we saw Hughie got some new powers after injecting himself with the Temp V, which is known as Compound V.24 or Temporary Compound V.  

In The Boys Season 3 Episode 4, Billy Butcher, Hughie Campbell, Frenchie, Kimiko and Mother’s Milk went to Russia to track down the ‘Supe Gun,’ which could be used to kill Homelander. 

During their mission, when Russian guards tried to kill Mother’s Milk that time Hughie to save his friend, used the powers of Temp V for the first time. 

He quickly teleported in front of the Russian Guard and punched a hole in his chest, after which the Russian guard died. 

So what are Hughie’s powers? And What powers and abilities Hughie will have in the future? Well, let’s read along to know the details. 

Hughie Campbell’s Powers and Abilities Explained: What are Hughie’s powers in The Boys?

In The Boys Season 3 Episode 4, Billy Butcher, Hughie Campbell, Frenchie, Kimiko and Mother’s Milk went to Russia to track down the ‘Supe Gun,’ which could be used to take down Homelander. 

During their mission, they found out that Russian guards guarded the lab, and inside the lab, they kept Soldier Boy cause they were doing some experiments on him. 

In Episode 4, the Russian Guards were notified that the lab was breached, so they straight went to the floor where Solider Boy was kept when the guards charged down there, Billy and others were present. 

Soon the fight broke in between them, and Billy used his powers to kill a few of the guards first, but one of the Guards was close to Mother’s Milk and was about to shoot him. 

That time Hughie used Temp V’s powers and saved Mother’s Milk.

He quickly teleported in front of the Russian Guard and punched a hole in his chest, after which the Russian guard died. 

As we witnessed earlier in episode 4, Hughie told Billy to inject him with some of Temp V. Cause he has had enough of being a loser. 

He also told Billy about when he was insulted in front of Starlight by Homelander, who threatened him that he would kill him if required. 

But Billy replied that the Temp V powers are not gifts but punishments, and such sort of punishments Hughie doesn’t deserve. 

But somehow, Hughie managed to sneak out some of the portions of the Temp V from Billy’s vile and injected himself with the Temp V, after which he got his powers. 

We have also done a deep dive analysis based on what we witnessed in The Boys Season 3 Episode 4 and the comics and found out that Hughie will have the following powers in the series.

So below are the powers of Hughie Campbell in The Boys

Teleportation Ability 

With the powers of Temp V, Hughie can teleport from one location to another location quickly, but there is a catch when he uses this teleportation power. 

He will only be able to move his body means his clothes won’t teleport with him. So whenever he uses this power, he will turn naked. 

Superhuman Strength

Hughie also got Superhuman Strengths, as we witnessed after teleported in front of the Russian Guard. 

He landed a heavy blow on the Russian Guard’s chest, which punched a hole in the guard’s chest, after which the guard died.

Powerful Regenerative and Healing abilities

Hughie has also got regenerative healing abilities after injecting himself with the Temp V. 

The reason is we witnessed in The Boys Episode 3 that Hughie insisted Kimiko break his arm so that he could stay away from Victoria Neuman for some time and work with Billy Butcher to find the ‘Supe Gun.’ 

Hence, Kimiko broke Hughie’s arm in Episode 3. In Episode 4, before the usage of Temp V powers, Hughie’s arm remained broken. 

But when he used the powers of Temp V for the first time to save his friend, his broken arm was healed instantly. 

So the above mentioned were Hughie’s powers in The Boys Season 3. Let us know what you think about Hughie Campbell’s Powers in The Boys.
