Kalnestk Oblast Posted June 7, 2022 Share Posted June 7, 2022 32 minutes ago, dbunting said: Homelander is a toned down Donald Trump, or maybe thats' backwards!? The worse he behaves the better his numbers and the more fringe people come out to support him. Homelander isn't exactly a toned down Trump; he's a massive narcissistic psychopath. That Trump and him share some things is somewhat coincidental and based entirely on that psychological profile. Trump isn't special in that regard. Homelander has his own unique things - his need for a mother figure, his obsessive need for approval from authority figures, his actual desire to fit in - but him behaving as a narcissist with no ability to form relationships or understand other humans beyond if they hurt him or not is entirely textbook, and pretty much par for the course from psychology and from the comic. It's also a pretty standard trope about superman-as-evil: if you had the power of a god, how would you view people? Invincible, Injustice, Kingdom Come, tons of different runs of various comics over the years all play on that. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
