After the Soldier Boy (Jensen Ackles) debacle left Queen Maeve (Dominique McElligott) "dead," a whole lot of other people really dead, and a crapload of destruction, Vought++ pulled the OG supe's content to avoid the painfully bad public relations backlash Well, it appears Vought's money people have gotten into Homelander's ear because films like Red[...]
