The boys Season 3 episode 1, “Payback”, introduced Geddes’ Termite, a supe with the ability to grow smaller than that of an insect. During a party the titular boys were attempting to infiltrate, Termite and his lover began privately engaging in a sexual encounter that involved the hero becoming small enough to fit inside his partner’s urethra.

“These evolve into a writers room and the evolution of that sequence started with ‘We need the boys to fight a superhero,'” Kripke explained. “So we ask, ‘What great superhero haven’t we made yet?’ Someone says, “We didn’t do Ant-Man.” And then someone else says, “There’s this meme of Ant-Man climbing on Thanos’ butt and blowing him up. So we should. We should give the public what Marvel can’t give them. ” “

While Marvel Studios has been criticized by fans for its reliance on CGI as opposed to practical effects, Prime Video’s The boys leaned into using practical effects for some of his more absurd stunts. This includes using practical effects for things like building a “10-foot animatronic cock puppet” in Season 1 or using 150 gallons of fake blood for the infamous whale scene from the movie. season 2. With the show’s version of the “Herogasm” event on the horizon, fans should expect nothing less than the utmost attention to detail for the next super-powered sex orgy.
