Superhero fans have many options these days when it comes to television. Especially this summer the fans could choose between shows like Doom Patrol and Umbrella Academy for some super power action, and things like the Arrowverse, Netflix’s sadly canceled Marvel series (Jessica Jones, daredevil, etc.) and the upcoming Falcon and winter soldier Series offer fans more variety than ever before. These shows are all on view, and some of them are even great. But none of them is as single-handedly observable and unique as The young.
And what does The young so special is not just that it is over Superhero, but instead of being a stellar piece of the genre – the action, storyline, and effects are top notch – but it perfectly mocks the genre that has taken over not only the small screen but feature films as well. The young Takes everything you love about superhero fiction and makes you both love it even more, wondering why you love it in the first place at the exact same time.
The group of superheroes – or, as the show calls them, “supes” – at the center of The young is called The Seven. The Seven are a group of superheroes who have come together to fight crime. In this world, however, it also means they are run by a massive company called Vaught, where a man called Stan Edgar (Giancarlo Esposito, who plays a villain again) pulls the strings.
And it doesn’t take long to see what’s wrong with the Seven – it is them The young’ take on the Justice League. From being guided by an almighty, cloak-clad male superhero to individual comparisons – that’s exactly what happens. But that’s not all. And how you keep watching The young, You will notice more and more satire and ever closer observations of what is going on here. And we will keep up here.

Homelander is the main character in The young. He makes the action in motion. He is the most famous supe. He is the most powerful supe. He’s the first supe. And just because he looks at him, he’s clearly the … Superman … Supe. (He’s got a bit of Captain America in him too – just look at the Evans-esque hair). There is a huge difference between our Homelander and Superman / Cap, however, and it’s the whole … you know be angry Thing.
A-Train is the fastest man in the world, which shows his parallel with the Justice League – he’s The Flash. But only when you look at him can you tell The young has another influence. With those glasses on his face, he’s a dead alarm for Anthony Mackie’s hawks. This drugged runabout can fly so fast that it literally ran right through Hughie’s friend Robin in season 1.
Maeve has an Amazonian look and super strength – it’s clear her parallel is Wonder Woman. Unfortunately no golden lasso or invisible jet for them.
Black Noir could be a ton of different superheroes, but if we stick to the Justice League parallels, he’s definitely the Batman of Seven. The young Viewers will see very early in Season 2 how deadly this guy is with his hand-to-hand combat and gadgets, and it won’t stay that way until the season progresses. While its primary comparison might be The Dark Knight, its costume is also reminiscent of Black Panther, Deadpool, and possibly Deathstroke. Arguments could be made.
Starlight has the twang of a pair of female DC superheroes in the Midwest: Supergirl (as seen in the Arrowverse) and Stargirl (who recently got her own DC Universe standalone series). Harnessing the world’s energy and shooting it with their hands or eyes, Starlight is one of the most powerful members of the Seven. For Hughie, one of our heroes, it’s great that they have such a close bond.
Look, no pun intended, but we don’t need to get into this too deeply. The deep has gills. He talks to fish, dolphins and all kinds of marine and marine animals. It’s Aquaman.
Mesmer isn’t exactly a direct parody of any particular superhero. He also serves as a replacement for any child star that has washed ashore (which is what makes the casting of Haley Joel Osment so perfect). But his ability to telepathy is similar to some of the X-Men like Professor X or Jean Gray, although his physical appearance obviously has nothing to do with either of these.
Fun fact – Translucent doesn’t exist in the original comic The young based on. In the comic, his place in The Seven Jack From belongs to Jupiter, who is basically an alien. Translucent, which has the power of invisibility thanks to its carbon fiber skin – but only when completely naked – has basically the same power as Sue Storm / The Invisible Woman from the Fantastic Four.
The latest addition to The Seven in Season 2 is Stormfront, played by You are the worst Star Aya Cash (an interesting change from the source material as Stormfront was a man The young Comics). Stormfront doesn’t take anything away from anyone, even Homelander who you would probably think is everyone’s boss. But it also has a pretty dark side. As you can tell by her name and her power – she can shoot lightning from her fingers – she’s basically a version of Storm by the X-Men.
