Alongside Butcher, Hughie watches the Teenage Kix throw an orgy. Each member takes a turn with a whore, changing partners with a rapid fluidity. The effects on the women are pretty harsh, as one is seen inspecting herself with bloody fingers. Not to mention that the girls keep up-to-speed with the supes by using a *dum dum dum* blue fluid.
Meanwhile, amonst the Seven:
Starlight is asked to introduce herself, but stalls while A-Train makes a sexual joke towards her. This leads to him getting his ass whooped down by Homelander. There's also a big quandry over merchandising, as the Deep and Jack From Jupiter question the Big Three about their larger percentage.
Meanwhile, Mother's Milk and The Frenchman keep an eye on Teenage Kix. There's a bit of gay sex that humors Hughie, and leaves him wondering if the teams knows who screwing who.
This is where Butcher takes the initiative to inject Hughie with the *dum dum dum* blue fluid. Called Compound V, it's a drug which alters the users D.N.A. and gives them powers a'la the Supes. It's how the hookers were able to keep up in the orgy, and how The Boys are able to stand up against the Supes.
However, Hughie doesn't take kind to this. He rails off against Butcher, then stomps away; proclaiming he's going home to Glasgow...
Another fantastic issue! Haven't laughed so hard over a book since, well, #3!
Interesting to finally find out how the Boys are going to keep up against the Supes. The meeting of the Seven was cool, too. Have to admit I got a kick outta the Deep. And... and... the book was just great.
Hmm. Wonder where The Female was, though?
