A more difficult Super to achieve. write than others?

After a wait that lasted two long years, fans can finally discover the rest of The Boys with season 4.

And it This is precisely the characteristic that made it difficult to write the character. In any case, this is what was recently revealed by Eric Kripke, the creator of the Prime Video series, during his interview with Variety.

And then Sage became a very interesting character, because someone had the idea to “make her an African-American that no one listens to”. And there it is who has the ability to to save all humanity and everyone thinks she's invisible, which seemed like something to me. be a very interesting social commentary on this character. And then Susan brings it to life, and she's so smart.

Indeed, in just four episodes, Sister Sage proved that she could be a strong ally for Homelander, providing him with valuable help in a very short time. It is in particular she who will find a way to thwart Starlight's (or Stella's) plans, thus overturning public opinion about the latter. However, this extraordinary intelligence also seems to come at a cost.

Because in episode 4, the character revealed his that his brain was capable of regenerating itself. This is why she performs temporary lobotomies to “relax”, to the great pleasure of The Deep (or the Fishman). This then gave; place at this scene which shocked some more than one in the latest episode, àgrave; so much so that it is for many one of the worst scenes ever seen in the Prime Video series until then. today.
