“So my reminiscence is it got here up within the scripts — full credit score to the writing crew on this, as a result of it was so bizarre,” he recalled to Rolling Stone. “It began with X-ray visioning my Oedipal mummy determine [Madelyn Stillwell as played by Elisabeth Shue] whereas she was breastfeeding, and me pining like that and having a jealous relationship with the newborn. After which in the beginning of Season Two, I discovered a few of her … Homelander discovered a few of her breast milk in a freezer and lasers it, begins ingesting it, will get caught.”

It’s the identical manner that you could possibly take a look at it like Superman and simply go unhealthy. I don’t wish to try this.

“However let me put it this manner. No matter parallels there are to the true world, it needs to be pushed by our characters. The narrative needs to be pushed by the wants of the character, proper? So yeah, clearly, there’s an election within the present, and there’s an actual election this yr. However that’s really a extremely pure development from Homelander’s perspective, as a result of we’ve been dabbling in politics and making an attempt to get within the navy from season one. So there’s at all times been these parts that parallel the true world. However I really feel like they at all times relate effectively to the present. It’s not like simply, oh yeah, we wish to stick that in for no different cause than simply to poke enjoyable at one thing in the true world,” added Starr.
