In this post, we’re going to discuss Billy Butcher, the show’s protagonist, who is a fervent fan of Supers and the way he got his powers in the TV show in a humorous twist.
Billy Butcher is getting superpowers in the third season of The Boys. At the moment it’s not understood what caused Butcher was able to acquire the powers, but we think it’s been a result of the temporary effects of Compound V that gave Butcher the ability. Compound V’s effects Compound V will last just 24 hours, however we’ll need to wait a few days to prove our theory.
In the remaining portion part of the article we’re going to discuss Billy Butcher getting his powers in the Boys story at least as far as the series is involved. The purpose for this post is to address the question that has been causing concern to the fans ever since Butcher was revealed to possess abilities that were not present in the previous trailer. We also want to provide some information about the character and how strong is Bully Butcher, too. Be aware, as there will be spoilers.
How Did Billy Butcher Got Powers In The Boys Comics?
One of the major characters in The Boys is Billy Butcher The character is believed as the deuteragonist of the show along with Hughie and Hughie, the main character. You could argue the fact that Butcher has been the main character who held everything together and allowed for the series the main plot to develop since he brought The Boys together for one purpose, which was to eliminate the supes from the earth because he was possessed of an enmity against them.
In the comics,, Butcher is portrayed to differ from the comics with the version that is live action of The Boys. The live-action version depicts an angry, irate man who wants to murder Homelander due to an argument regarding his partner, Butcher is a normal man who is an individual contractor. Therefore, even though he could be a risky person as compared to the rest of us but his lack of superpowers does not make him a threat to the superiors in the event of his being alone.
However, in the story, Billy Butcher had already utilized Compound V, the same substance that created the supes before meeting and enlisting Hughie. The comic book rendition is a lot more powerful. Billy Butcher is quite powerful in the sense that his headbutts can crush the skulls of supes . It is also evident that his punches are powerful enough to single-shot the most powerful character in the tale.
How can Billy Butcher get his powers in comics? Well, it’s quite simple. He was able get a particular kind that was a part of Compound V when he tracked down the scientist responsible for the development of the compound. With this strain it was possible to build himself up.
However, the issue of The Compound V that The Boys’ members The Boys use is that it gives them only short-term powers that will not last for long. Because they are taking the medication in their later years, instead of earlier in their lives the powers they gain are limited to super power. But their level of super strength is higher than every other super supe that exists other than Homelander as well as Black Noir.
So, when Billy Butcher and the rest of The Boys take the serum they develop the power of super strength that they apply against various Supes they want to take down. When they collaborate, they’re powerful enough to defeat The Seven. The Seven.
When Did Billy Got His Powers In The Comics?
It wasn’t mentioned in detail at the time Billy Butcher got his powers in the comics. But what was evident was that, at the time Billy Butcher gathered The Boys, he was already possessed of The Compound V that allowed him to increase his strength.
That means it was possible for him to obtain this Compound V strain prior to the happenings during The Boys. This was during the time it was possible that he worked as a consultant for Mallory in the capacity of an independent contractor/agent who identified the scientist who developed the formula.
Why Is Billy So Strong In The Boys Comics?
As previously mentioned, Billy Butcher is so powerful in comics. In fact, he’s so powerful that he has been able to beat a variety of super-supes in a couple of strikes, and also with his skills as an ace. This is different to the live-action shows in which he didn’t kill several the supes. When the supes were killed in the show it was due to his creativity working as an independent contractor, and not as a superhuman being.
So, what makes Billy Butcher so strong in comics? The answer is that it boils into his Compound V that he uses and the fact that he’s an experienced killer.
The comics revealed that all supes are granted some level of super strength thanks to Compound V. However, the amount varies. Some supes only get power up to the point where they’re slightly more powerful than ordinary people. This is evident in the form of Starlight, A-Train, and The Deep, who are all super strong , yet have levels of super-power that differ. Additionally, Compound V functions in a way that’s extremely random.
Butcher’s Compound V That Butcher did was specially designed for strength and strength enhancement, not to just give individuals random abilities. That means that Butcher’s Compound V is designed specifically for creating him stronger than the majority of people, and possibly even the majority of Supes as well. But the reason for him to be as powerful as he appears in comics is his history, and that’s why he’s more powerful over the rest of The Boys, who take the same Compound V.
Billy Butcher has always been depicted as a skilled killer who was previously a CIA independent contractor or agent prior living a life of killing people. He is trained and has the knowledge of a killer which means He is aware of ways to kill the opponents he faces with his hands, or any other weapon he can think of. Butcher could even take a supe’s neck and snap it by using his belt as weapon.
In this regard He has the mentality and the training to be killers and is fierce and ferocious enough to make him more powerful than the majority of superheroes featured in comics. On the other hand the supes we’ve seen in comics aren’t as well-trained or skilled when it comes to killing like Billy Butcher is because they depend too heavily on their powers. Butcher however was already an expert fighter and killer long before when he acquired his powers.
Of of course, Billy Butcher is also an extremely intelligent person who is able to think ahead prior to attempting to take on the supe. In comics, he’s no murderer who isn’t thinking, but an intelligence agent who studies each supe to ensure that he knows how to best approach them. This gives him an advantage over almost any supe , before they ever engage, which means he’s nearly always a step above them.
There’s also the fact that the man is a driven killer. His desire to take down every supe all over the world due to personal reasons propels him forward and helps him increase his strength based on determination by itself. However the supes they faced weren’t as driven as he is and this implies that he has the advantage in terms of willpower as involved.
So, Billy Butcher was always depicted in Comics in the form of a dangerous person whether he had or not his powers. That means that even if he weren’t enhanced with Compound V, he’d still be quite an opponent in any supe. this was the case in the initial two episodes in The Boys when Butcher was competent and smart enough to defeat different Supes.

- superhuman strength: Howevercher’s strength and physical power was boosted by Compound V.

He can also hit the Supe in one strike using his trademark weapon the crowbar. Butcher also smacked Soldier Boy’s nose, and broke Crimson Countess’ neck with his belt. He also drove a pickaxe through Swato’s head , and then put a shovel in Soldier Boy’s head, causing him to be killed Mind-Droid using the same tool. He almost rammed his crowbar in Stormfront’s throat before he headbutted him, which caused profuse bleeding. He also brutally struck another man’s face by kicking him in the face. He was not scared by The Deep who survived an airplane crash. Butcher was able to hold Jack at Jupiter’s throat and shackle him against the wall, before cutting him.

How did Billy Butcher get his powers in the show?
The new trailer of the season 3 episode The Boysrevealed that Billy Butcher would be getting superpowers. This is absurd considering that the man has actually earned a name for him fighting, and even killing Supes. This is a fascinating new twist, but, like we’ve established in the previous article which isn’t unique, as Butcher was a superhero in the comic book he was originally a part of and also.
However, the precise method of how Butcher is granted his powers isn’t revealed as of yet in the lead up to season three of the series, we’re only able to speculate. Based on what we know from the earlier story, Butcher seems to have been exposed to a temporary version of Compound V. This version of Compound V gives the user specific superpowers, but only for a limited duration of time. It’s believed that it lasts for 24 hours.
It’s likely what will happen during the third season however, we’re not sure of everything we know about it yet so we’ll have to keep an eye on us when the new episodes air.
How Powerful Butcher Is Compared To Homelander With Powers
The third season of The Boys shows William “Billy” Butcher finally making use of Compound V and accepting his powers, which suggests the man may be powerful enough to defeat Homelander. The story of The Boys comics, Billy and the crew are already making use of Compound V prior to issue one which is the first issue, and Hughie is the first to gain power in issue 4. Although Billy Butcher has been powerless at best in the super sense through the Boys’ first 2 seasons, he’s been able to get through every fight against the Superman-like villain who has been spoiled. Since Karl Urban’s Billy Butcher has powers too and is able to be a threat to Vought’s wealth.
The show, The Boysseries, The group that is the title was not able to use their powers for the beginning of the two seasons and Kimiko (Kara Fukuhara) being the only exception who demonstrates the normal ability to endure and be strong. The addition of these powers of other members is bound to push the already talented team to the limits of what they have to face. The first major battle The Boysencounter in the comics takes place with the team that is known as Teenage Kix that believe their superiority due to their abilities and status as superheroes, not realizing they The Boys too possess power by using Compound V. The Boys are soon to destroy the group including Hughie who was uneasy and not trained and untrained, accidently fatally killing Kix group member Blarney Cock by delivering a blow straight to the chest of the victim. This is a demonstration of the effectiveness of Compound V on a normal human being, and not even its effectiveness in human bodies like Billy Butcher, an ex-special forces soldier with a violent streak.
Due to the fact that he was subjected to Compound V from an extremely young age, Homelander is considered one of most, if not the most powerful Supes on earth. In addition to being able to Homelander fly and fly, but he also has the ability to see with lasers, super strength and super speed, which makes the The Boys’ most formidable adversary. But, Homelander has his flaws and he’s extremely emotional and easily controlled and often leads to his being a nefarious character. Although Billy Butcher isn’t a people person in his own right, he’s skilled and manipulative as well being extremely strong, even with Compounded V. In The Boys comics Butcher is, at a minimum, comparable to that of Mothers Milk The team’s muscle however, his brutality is what makes him very dangerous. Although Supe’d up Butcher might be more powerful than regular Supes But he’s not as powerful as Homelander on an equal playing field. Not just Homelander Homelander stronger and faster in comparison to Billy Butcher but he’s also more resilient, having survived some of the most brutal comics injuries. Although Billy Butcher can hold his with his own, even without his abilities however, he’s not a opponent for Homelander in a straight battle.
The Boys comic-based depiction of Billy Butcher can’t beat Homelander in a fair contest however, that’s not to say that the Amazon version of Billy Butcher is identical. Already, they’ve departed from the comics’ version with The introduction of the yellow-colored eyes, in the Boys Season 3’s trailer It’s also possible that Billy might gain extra powers, like flying or superspeed. Every person who uses Compound V gets increased strength and endurance, but it varies between individuals, how powerful Amazon creates the version they’ve created of Supe Butcher may be more powerful than the strength of comics as well as the strength of Homelander.
Although the odds of Billy defeating Homelander during a fair battle are not that great, even with Homelander gaining superpowers, the likelihood that Butcher will take on Homelander in this way are not likely since Butcher is strategic , if not else. In addition, Billy have his military background along with his brutality, and his team to back But he’s capable of manipulating his opponents to turn the odds to his advantage. What extent will the Amazon production ties in with the upcoming power of Butcher, and if it’s using the powers to the remaining Boys is not yet known And although Billy Butcher could beat Homelander in the right conditions, Homelander remains Vought’s most formidable Supe on the show, The Boys even with the newfound power of Butcher in season 3.

He was also able to determine the possibility that Homelander along with Stormfront were involved in a romantic relationship.
