Will Billy Butcher turn evil in The Boys? Is Billy Butcher a Villain? These two questions are probably on the mind of everyone who has read the ending of Boys comics and is watching The Boys Series.
Because of the creative difference between the show and the comics, the fans have now questioned whether Billy Butcher will eventually turn evil in The Boys?
I believe I can answer that question, so let’s deep dive into the discussion.
Will Billy Butcher turn evil in The Boys? Is Billy Butcher a Villain?
Yes, we think the show will eventually follow the comics, which will follow Billy Butcher, once an anti-hero, finally turning into a villain at the ending chapter.
Billy Butcher is the main protagonist turned antagonist in The Boys Series.
Once a CIA BlackOps, Royal Marine office Billy Butcher turned Vigilante and created an Anti-Supe Group called ‘The Boys’.
Billy Butcher is the leader of ‘The Boys”, and the group consists of Hughie Campbell, Frenchie, Kimiko and Mother’s Milk, aka MM.
Billy Butcher’s archenemy is the leader of The Seven, Homelander and Stan Edger, The CEO of Vought International.
Billy had sworn to take his revenge on Homlander for what he did to his wife, Becca.
He also wants to take down other corrupt Supes ‘The Seven’ and Vought international so that they can pay for their sins.
Billy Butcher also developed his Supe abilities once he took a vile of Temp V serum called Compound V 24 (a substitute of the original Compound V).
The Temp V can turn any normal human being into a Supe for 24 hours.
Billy used the Temp V and killed several Supes at first. The list includes Translucent, Gunpowder, Black Noir and many others.
Billy’s powers are somewhat identical to Homelander, such as Heat Vision, enhanced strengths etc.
But viewers want to know whether Billy Butcher eventually turns evil in The Boys? Well, the answer to that is Yes! Billy Butcher does turn evil in the Boys comics.
At the end of The Boys comics, when Billy Butcher learns that it was Black Noir (clone of Homelander) who had assaulted his wife Becca, he kills Black Noir with a crowbar, and after taking his revenge, he doesn’t feel any better. Instead, he lost all sense of morality.
Billy then devised a plan to eradicate all the Supes from the world with compound V on their blood.
Although The Boys group, Hughie, MM, Frenchie and Kimiko, was against Billy, they wanted to stop him from committing this mass genocide.
But Billy has had enough. He didn’t care much about the world anymore.
He was ready to go to extreme circumstances in order to wipe out The Supes from the world.
He planned hundreds of Bombs which would trigger an explosive Compound V strain that would target anyone with compound V on their blood and kill them instantly.
After understanding the plan of Billy Butcher, The Boys group tried their best to stop Billy, but Billy was willing to extreme circumstances; hence he killed MM, Frenchie and Kimiko first, and then Hughie was the only one left who could stop him.
So during their final confrontation, Hughie and Billy fought each other and both fell from the top of the Empire State Building to several buildings down.
Both sustained severe injuries. Hughie drove his leg through the fence, and Billy broke his leg and was paralysed.
After failing his plan, Billy tried to provoke Hughie, telling him he had killed all his family, after which Hughie, with the leg impelled in the iron fence, drove the iron rod through Billy Butcher’s chest which ends up killing Billy.
So once an anti-hero, Billy Butcher did turn into a villain at the end of The Boys and died at the hands of Hughie.
Hughie, later on, realised that Butcher didn’t kill his family.
He just provoked Hughie so that he could kill him.
