** [[spoiler:Because Black Noir ultimately ''wants'' the Boys to continue their work of exposing supes, in order for Noir to get material to gaslight the Homelander with, to push the Homelander further out on the edge, in order to get Vaught to give the order to grease the Homelander. ]]

** IIRC in the "Super-Orgy" arc, a couple of heroes actually discuss with glee how they were originally villains until they realised that heroes could do anything that villains could do, with the added bonus that everyone loves them and is willing to look the other way for them.

** Maybe the supervillains are even more messed up then the heroes?

* Why be a supervillain when you can be a corporate sponsored hero and get away with anything and make money anyway?

**Also in the final issues it's revealed that they only had around a 60% success rate with Compound V. That would seem to imply that growing such clones would be cost prohibitive with a lot of wasted material. Not that that sort of thing is a problem for VA. "Bad product" indeed.

** Just because Black Noir is completely insane, does not mean he's stupid. His plot to gaslight the Homelander took a lot of time, and would have required careful planning and execution of individual parts, even if the plan itself might have been more of a XanatosSpeedChess plan than anything else. Point is, he was created to kill the Homelander, and killing/maiming Queen Meave would definitely be a roadblock to that end, a roadblock he was unwilling to deal with. He would never be able to hide that in the same way he did his other victims. He is probably created to be completely loyal, which is why he can't get his mind off the task, driving him nuts. But he is still focused on his sole reason for living.

[[spoiler:If Black Noir is a cannibalistic CompleteMonster given to atrocities, why would he just jam his thumb in Hughie's ass under Herogasm instead of painting the tunnel red with gore as he seems to enjoy? ]]

[[spoiler:If Black Noir is a cannibalistic CompleteMonster given to atrocities, so bad, why would he just jam his thumb in Hughie's ass under Herogasm instead of painting the tunnel red with gore as he seems to enjoy? ]]

[[WMG: Maeve and Stormfront?]]
They say that the Homelander and the Seven come from Stormfront's DNA, right? So, when Maeve and Stormfront had a relationship, it was father-daughter incest? Or what it would happen if ComicBook/{{Wolverine}} and ComicBook/{{X-23}} from X-Men had a relationship...

** There are supervillains, but they arent the point of the story so they're only mentioned in passing, such as Teenage Kix celebrating at having put a group called the Fearsome Foursome back in Rikers. However, the level of villain YOU'RE talking about are refered to as "rogue supers" because they're pretty much just superheroes with no sense for keeping the status quo. They only show one of them, a super called Professor Banzai who was killed by Homelander. Presumably, they're relatively rare and dont get the benefit of a CardboardPrison.

* One could argue that The Boys are this world's equivalent of a supervillain team.
