[[WMG:Where are the supervillains?]]
Is the whole "supers fighting against evil" made up by Vought's comics and backstory division, or are there ''actual'' supervillains going around trying to TakeOverTheWorld?

\n** Yeah, it's important to note here that the only reason that the Homelander's coup failed was because Butcher gave Kathryn early warning and a line on specific anti-superhuman weapon systems. If they'd just hit out of nowhere one day, there wouldn't have been much that could stop them. Even with what little warning the U.S. was given, the superhumans still inflicted a ''lot'' of damage, including a successful decapitation strike against the U.S. government.

* Yeah, that's one of Butcher's major flaws in the narrative. He's focused entirely on the superhumans, and only engages with root causes inasmuch as it gives him intelligence and other advantages. To some extent, you can draw a parallel between him and Ennis's take on Frank Castle, where both characters view the unwinnable nature of the situation as a bonus.

This guy just totally destroys suspension of disbelief. A borderline retard who can barely speak coherently and can't even put on a condom? That's something you'd expect in {{Preacher}}, [[BerthaInTheAttic in a locked basement]] somewhere, but absolutely not in politics.

*Butcher has gone completely cuckoo-banana nutcakes and simply cannot get past his hatred of enhanced supers.

* Vic The Veep had an armed faction supporting him in the White House. The Secret Service were this close to shooting each other in the halls over the situation. Once the Boys stepped in, they did start shooting each other dead. It was Civil War writ small.

[[WMG: Butcher's Misplaced Hate?]]
I get that Butcher hates Superheros and he has every right to. But why is he more focused on taking out Superheros and not Vought-American, who's the real cause behind literally EVERYTHING?

* Because he's a power-mad psycho fed up with taking orders from Vought-American and wants to run the show, and is convinced (not entirely unreasonably) that basically being an Evil Superman means that no one's in a position to make him lose everything. This is pretty clearly established. Besides which, it's pretty clear that part of his coup involves settling scores with Butcher.

** Answered. She panicked and got scared. Legend talked her into putting them back.

[[WMG: Why did the Homelander decide to launch his coup d'tat?]]

He knows that doing so will get Butcher to release the photos, which will result in him and his fellow heroes loosing everything.

* Actually, if they guy can read lines convincingly then you could probably make it. Not trying to knock Sarah Palin here, but when she was off script, she was very incoherent, didn't stop her from being taken seriously.

** There's a video on Youtube of Barack Obama without his teleprompter. The man has a hard time stringing together a coherent sentence of three words.
