Although taken from afar, we can already have an idea of ​​what the look of the Soldier Boy will look like in the series, which will clash a bit with the comics. He will not have his legs exposed, but his costume will still bring the colors of the American flag, as in the original.

Who is Soldier Boy?

Soldier Boy is the frontman of Payback, a group of heroes rivaling The Seven. Being an obvious parody of Captain America, he’s said to have fought in WWII against the Nazis, which is a half-truth: Soldier Boy is actually a title, and there have been two heroes with it before. name before most current.

During the war, it was the decision of the original Soldier Boy to keep the Avenger Squad supergroup alongside the American soldiers to fight the Germans, resulting in the deaths of dozens of soldiers. Despite being patriotic and dedicated to his work, the current Soldier Boy is a big coward and owner of a naivety that makes other super people always take advantage of his nobility.

Eric Kripke, showrunner of the TV series, still maintains the role of the character in the third season as a mystery, but has already said that he will talk a lot of profanity, have some pretty damnable attitudes and have a rivalry relationship with Captain Mother ( Antony Starr) who will feel threatened by him.
