The anti MAGA made up for a more boring season IMHO. I don't love that the CIA are objectively the good guys now.

I was pretty suspicious of that as well, but I don't think they're good guys in the show. If I remember properly, the guy ordering MM around is only concerned about the exploding-head lady because she can easily kill anyone that goes against her, without anyone knowing it's her.

Honestly it's bad writing when her power is basically controlling blood, she could kill people by giving them an aneurism / heart attack and no ome would even suspect a thing

Or, to make it funner, maybe there's a reason she can't just give people like that, like due to limitations or something idk.

Theres a moment in the Gen V spin off wheres shes threatening someone in a parking garage, I thought "ah how dangerous, he'll die of something subtle" and then his head burst like a watermelon under a tire.

Hell she could even just give people really bad hypertension and kill them slowly.

i don't think anyone in the show is a good guy. it's all self-interest and revenge, even when they pretend to be moral

The show centering on a bunch of CIA goons led by an annoying Australian who epicly swears bacon style made me hate the show after a couple episodes. I finished all 3 seasons anyway but found it all annoying.

[-] ButtBidet@hexbear.net 6 points 1 month ago

Fair enough. They do portray Butcher as the bad good guy enough times.

I like the show but I think this is a completely fair assessment that I wouldnt argue with.

[-] jackmarxist@hexbear.net 8 points 1 month ago

Not really. While Mallory and MM are fine, Butcher was absolutely psychotic and Neagley wants to turn Ryan into a weapon so basically Homelander 2.0.

In the comics they are just an end to means for butcher and the boys. CIA gets shit all over in the comics at least
