The news about Ryan shouldn’t come as a surprise, especially after the way season three ended. With him now fully under his psychotic dad’s wing, the boy will be a major part of what drives the series’ narrative forward.
As for Sister Sage and Firecracker, neither character appears in The Boys comic by Garth Ennis (writer) and Darick Robertson (art). While this means we won’t have anything to base our predictions on, Prime Video’s adaptation has completely reworked many of the characters for the series — including Jenson Ackles’ Soldier Boy.
Showrunner Eric Kripke also took to Twitter to assure fans that the new supes leave them “absolutely horrified & a tiny bit nauseous.” While that could point to them being antagonists, they could also be part of the show’s stable of complicated “good guys.” Whatever the case, it should be fun to watch how things play out next season.
These new Supes are some of the best & craziest ever written for #TheBoys. You are going to love them. And by love, I mean be absolutely horrified & a tiny bit nauseous. WELCOME TO THE FAMILY YOU GUYS. #TheBoysTV @TheBoysTV @PrimeVideo @SPTV https://t.co/Pa9qMBFqwt
