The Boys controversy surrounding a particular Starlight storyline proves how the show was smart to change it from the source material. When a live-action version of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson’s The Boys was first announced, some fans were understandably concerned that Amazon’s series would shy away from the near-the-knuckle humor, gross-out violence and controversial themes that made the comic famous. However, with Eric Kripke as showrunner, The Boys has been visceral, socially relevant and unflinchingly bloody in its first two seasons. When show does tone down its source material, there’s usually a good reason, as with The Boys controversy about Starlight’s disturbing introduction into The Seven.
