    “Without Me, The World Would Burn”: Homelander From ‘The Boys’ Demands Respect As Time Magazine Names Him Superhero Of The Year

    The superhero — or rather, anti hero — who has got everyone talking has just been given one of the biggest accolades that a cape wearer could get. We are talking, of course, about Homelander just being named as TIME magazine’s Superhero Of The Hero.

    The mock interview featured in the magazine is one of the PR moves for the recently released season of the show,The Boys. The interview gives fans an almost realistic interview of the villain…err.. hero. Here’s what John Gillman alias Homelander revealed in his interview, and how he feels about the accolade.

    Homelander Sits Down For An Interview Accepting The ‘Superhero Of The Year’ Accolade


    The Time interview starts with John Gillman posing as the Homelander as the interviewer asks him how he feels about the accolade. In true Homelander fashion, Gillman responds, “Don’t get me wrong, you’ve got a great magazine. Of course I’m honored, but accolades like this … Let’s just say they aren’t what gets me out of bed in the morning.”

    “Think about it—if I don’t save people, who will? Without me, the world would burn. Literally. Fire and blood,” he adds. He then talks about how he would like people to change people’s perception of him.

    “A little respect would be nice. You know, with all the hate and discrimination and just … completely baseless legal accusations being thrown at superheroes lately, I hope this makes people stop and think about all of the sacrifices we make for them,” he says.

    The superhero also talks about his son, Ryan as the bearer of his legacy after him. “Ryan is my legacy. One day—ages from now—people will have to look to him for salvation instead of me. You could say he’s my gift to the world,” he says, adding, “Can’t ride my cape his whole life.”

    The interview is simulated and is a PR move from the series that has just released it’s fourth season. Many have also pointed out that this was done before by ‘Attack On Titan’ for Eren Jaeger.
