Homelander is the most insane member of the existing sociopath squad since he thinks he can treat people as mere humans because he has earned such enormous power. Homelander heads the famed superhero organisation The Seven, who frequently make problems worse rather than help any situation.
According to the official narrative provided by Vought-American, the Homelander is an extraterrestrial who came to Earth as a baby but grew up with their family in a small town. Homelander was a component in a series of sinister operations to produce super troops that VA could sell to the general people as “superheroes.” He was administered large doses of Compound V during his time in the womb. He was among the seven offspring raised by the business.
Homelander was unaware that, in addition to becoming a partly clone, he further utilised his DNA to make a stronger, more potent, and even more unsettling clone that would keep an eye on him and kill him if he ever became deranged.
As the Homelander and the other members of The Seven (a superhero group designed to be a spoof of the Justice League) started their superhero careers in New York City, it became apparent that their excessive strength and lack of morality would frequently make crises worse. Homelander found himself unintentionally wreaking death and damage everywhere he went despite his initial optimism and sincere desire to do good.
Homelander and The Seven discovered that Vought America was protecting them from the repercussions of their conduct by using their lucrative government ties, pricey legal teams, and influential PR companies to cover up or clean their acts.
Being impervious to any harm made, Homelander becomes immune from his own emotions. Thus aiding others became less important. His acts got increasingly hedonistic, aggressive, and cruel as he developed an indulgent obsession, turning him into the very opposite of what an ideal superhero ought to be.
Climbing the Madness
The Homelander started extorting him with pictures of different heinous crimes he allegedly participated in after being afraid to discover an anonymous source. When he realised, he had no recollection of carrying out any of these atrocities, and became devastated. The Homelander gradually transformed from a self-centred hedonist to a full-fledged brutal killer and torturer, making him even grumpier.
The Homelander started flirting with the concept of a “superhero uprising,” in which he and his other phoney heroes would rise and overthrow all global governments, thereby seizing control of the entire planet. This thought gave him more confidence in his developing rationality and sadism.
During a heroic award event, he tried to share this message, but one of the financial elites from Vought America frightened him and made him flee in terror. These occurrences obliterated every sense of morality or sanity that The Homelander had.
Homelander first emerges as a charming superhero who is kind, compassionate and horrified by injustice. He frequently tells his supporters that they “are the genuine heroes,” which motivates them. Yet, this is merely a front for when he wants to seem reasonable; when required, he is quick to reveal his actual self.
He is a vicious, horrifying psychopath who is callous, heartless, ruthless, sadistic, tormented, cold, and arrogant. Because of his great authority, he thinks he is better than all of humanity, so he doesn’t think twice about raping women, crashing an aircraft, or allowing scores of people to perish.
