For those who aren’t familiar with the comic, Soldier Boy is a cowardly parody of Captain America. Basically imagine if Homelander were less powerful and just as narcissistic, but all the patriotism and dedication to being a superhero he portrayed were 100% genuine.
As far as how he’ll be portrayed in the series, we don’t have much to go on besides a few passing mentions during Season 2. Whatever the case, The Boys official Twitter account once again came through with the perfect response to Ackles’ costume reveal.
you can't spell 'Jensen Ackles' without 'snack'
