The Boys is set in a timeline where the general public considers Supeheros as gods and super-celebrities.

They work for the influential organization Vought International, which markets and monetizes them apart from their heroic possessions; most of them are corrupt and sell-out.

This is where our anti-heroes come in the group called “The Boys”, led by Billy Butcher ( Karl Urban) and consisting of Hughie Campbell (Jack Quaid), Frenchie (Tomer Kapon), Kimiko (Karen Fukuhara) and Mother’s Milk (Laz Alonso).

Their main aim is to bring these Supes down. In the series, the Supes, especially ‘The Seven’, are all corrupt, Homelander(Antony Starr), Deep(Chace Crawford), and A-Train(Jessie Usher), but there are a few good Supes as well, such as Starlight(Erin Moriarty) and Queen Maeve(Dominique McElligott).

The Boys: Who is Starlight based on?

As per The Boys Fandom’s official page, as per Starlight’s costume design, appearance, and powers, she is a combination of DC superheroine Mary Marvel and Starfire and the Marvel superheroes Dazzler and Captain Marvel.

Starlight has powers such as the ability to Fly, the ability to control light, bioluminescence, enhanced strengths and super-hearing, which closely resembles the powers of all the four heroes mentioned.

Starlight’s costume is an amalgamation of Mary Marvel and Starfire’s costume. In contrast, her powers, such as Flying Ability, Light Attacks, super-hearing and enhanced strengths, are similar to all the four superheroes combined Dazzler, Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel and Starfire.

That is why Starlight is based on all the four characters combined (Dazzler, Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel and Starfire).
