Fans of The Boys graphic novel were a bit sad to see that the show was seemingly going to omit covering the We Gotta Go Now arc from the original comic written by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, but it seems the X-Men parody was being saved for the upcoming spin-off show, Gen V.

In the comic, Hughie goes undercover with the G-Men to discover what's going on with the mysterious millionaire John Godolkin's band of misfits following the suicide of a team member. In typical Boys fashion, Hughie discovers that there's some really twisted stuff happening at the G-Mansion.

While the television spinoff seems to be taking a slightly different path, several of the comic's main overarching pot points seem to still be present.

Just like in the comic book, there definitely appears to be something sinister happening beneath the Godolkin University School of Crimefighting's idyllic surface.

However, the Amazon Prime comic book adaptation appears to be only loosely following the graphic novel so don't expect to lear the ins and outs of the show by reading Volume 4 of The Boys

After watching the orientation video, you can see if Godolkin is the right university for you by visiting the school's official website at https://www.godolkinuniversity.com/.

Do you plan on tuning in when Gen V debuts on September 29? Three episodes will be released on the 29th, before the show changes to a weekly-release format that will see the first season conclude on November 3, 2023.

Will the spinoff become just as popular as The Boys? Let us know in the comment section below.

From the world of ‘The Boys’ comes ‘Gen V,’ which explores the training of the first generation of superheroes to know about Compound V, and that their powers were injected into them, rather than God-given. These young, competitive heroes put their physical and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the school’s highly coveted top ranking. They quickly come to learn that ambition comes with sacrifice, and the difference between right and wrong is not as clear as they once believed. When the university’s dark secrets come to light, the students must come to grips with what type of heroes they are going to become.

Starring Jaz Sinclair, Chance Perdomo, Lizze Broadway, Shelley Conn, Maddie Phillips, London Thor, Derek Luh, Asa Germann, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sean Patrick Thomas, Marco Pigossi, Clancy Brown, Alexander Calvert and Jason Ritter. Also featuring guest appearances from Jessie T. Usher, Colby Minifie, Claudia Doumit, and P.J. Byrne reprising their roles from The Boys.

Nothing can ever be literally adapted from the source into the adaptation, there wouldn't be any creative freedom so I can why this is just as a loose inspiration for their spinoff. Especailly with something as crude as The Boys.

I gotta make a mental note to remember to check this out. Looking forward to the characters of Jazz Sinclair and Chance Perdomo.
