* {{Deconstruction}}: Of the underlying corporate nature of superheroes and the comic book industry. The superheroes in the world of ''The Boys'' were raised from birth with everything handed to them on a silver platter from Vought-American. Because of how MerchandiseDriven superheroes ''by nature'' are, spoiling them with [[Fiction500 all the wealth in the world]] is pretty much all Vought can do to make sure they [[BewareTheSuperman don't one day go off the deep end]]. That being said, the superheroes, as a result of all the power they've been given right from the moment they were born, end up sociopathic, immature, spoiled, and utterly hedonistic--fixated only on their own individual satisfactions without much regard for the innocents whose lives are in their hands. What's even worse is that since superheroes are such a massive investment and turn in extremely huge profits, [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Vought's management]] is very much willing to do ''whatever they deem necessary'' to ensure their business remains afloat.

-->'''Mallory''': First of all, a spy is not an impeccably-dressed assassin in an Aston-Martin. He's generally a seedy little man you wouldn't look at twice. The same quite often goes for the man who's sent to kill him. He's also bitter, spiteful, malcontent. If his life had turned out the way he wanted, he'd hardly have become a traitor in the first place, would he? Then again, he gets the job done. Because no one's looking at him twice.

* PropagandaHero: The superheroes are all created by a serum that is dispensed by a MegaCorp that desperately wants to turn said superheroes into human weapons so they can get all the money and power that comes from being a part of US defense spending. Having failed to do that so far, they settle for peddling lame, Silver Age style stories that people eat up and make them imagine the heroes are saving the world on a daily basis. Of particular note is the CaptainAmerica CaptainErsatz, who is a DirtyCoward whose WWII heroism was faked and pure propaganda. (Which is pretty meta, considering CaptainAmerica is pretty much the poster boy for this trope.)

** Their next masterpiece was the V.A.C. [=F7U=] Grizzly, which considered the worst aircraft ever flown by the US military, with thirteen being lost for every enemy aircraft they shot down. In-universe, it's stated that the Allies would have ''lost'' if Truman hadn't dropped nukes on Japan. It's named after the real-life Vought [=F7U]= Cutlass, which had a similarly dismal reputation, with nearly one-third being lost in crashes.
