The Boys season 3: could Ryan help Butcher's group?


Becca Butcher's young son might choose to use his superpowers to help the Boys.

The end of season 2 gave the impression that the group led by Butcher was going to take a well-deserved break. However, given what we already know about season 3 of The Boys , the respite will most certainly be short-lived. Between Victoria Neuman's still well-hidden superpowers, the arrival of Soldier Boy, and Homelander's nerves on the verge of breaking down, they will have plenty to do. Even though the CIA should be on their side this time around, their past experiences have already proven to them that help from a superhero is far from negligible. Could their next ally be Ryan, Becca's son?

It is with all the love of the world that Becca Butcher raised her son Ryan, wanting at all costs to prevent him from becoming as ruthless as Homelander. Sadly, that protective bubble burst when Ryan learned of Ryan's existence, and things only got worse from that point on. The young boy was confronted with the harsh reality of a world he didn't really know, and ended up accidentally killing his mother while wanting to protect her from Stormfront. It was finally with Billy Butcher that he found refuge, and the leader of the Boys should continue to protect him throughout season 3.

As young as he is, Ryan has more of a reason to hate Vought and everything the drug company stands for. Her mother was raped by Homelander, forcibly removed from her family and held captive. The leader of the Seven then interfered in their lives despite their many refusals. If Vought had left Becca alone, or at least exposed the sexual assault she suffered, things might have been different. All these events, mixed with the guilt Ryan feels, could make him want revenge, or at least help the Boys gang fight Vought. After all, just like Starlight and Kimiko, he too has superpowers.

If despite his inexperience he was able to defeat Stormfront, he could wreak havoc among the Seven, and Vought's superheroes in general. However, even if he ends up wanting to help Butcher, there is no indication that the latter would allow it. On the one hand because he promised his wife to watch over his child, and therefore to keep him out of danger. On the other hand, because it could make Ryan lose his footing completely. From the start, Becca's goal is to do everything so that her son does not become like the other superheroes. Even if there is has good in him, letting him be consumed by his vengeance and the might of his powers could lead him down a very dark path. Ryan has all the skills needed to help Boys has to fight Vought, but his presence might not be without consequences. Despite everything, we must admit that we would not be against a scene in which he fights alongside Butcher, like a son with his father. However, we are less enthusiastic about the theory which connects Ryan to Soldier Boy in season 3 of The Boys .
