Billy Butcher

Search for 'Billy Butcher' on Amazon

He led the original Boys, who were disbanded for as-yet-unstated reasons. At the beginning of the series, he works to reassemble the old team, with a new member filling in for Mallory. He is physically large and incredibly violent, and, like all of The Boys, possess super strength. A bulldog named Terror is his constant companion. The cause of his campaign against superheroes stems from the rape and death of his wife, Becky. Butcher woke up to find his wife disemboweled on their bed, with her prematurely born, superpowered child crawling out of her. After it attacked Butcher with its heat vision, he killed it by beating it to death with a lampstand. After reading Becky's diary he learned the identity of his wife's rapist, who is described as "one of the big boys".
