Amazon has always welcomed explicit content and allowed for more freedom than some other retailers, but on the side of caution, they self-regulate some reviews with certain guidelines in place. Earlier this week, Amazon decided to change its policies and now determines if a review is suitable for its site by looking at the text as well as getting feedback from an internal team of reviewers.
The change in guidelines is causing a lot of reviewers to be banned, but some are not going quietly. Amazon’s new policy, that their guidelines now go beyond the reviewer and into the review itself, has affected several reviews, but none more than the fake “Bernie Sanders” review. The text was changed to remove all mention of Donald Trump or any other political figures.
Introduction to The Boys
The Boys is a comic book series written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Darick Robertson. It’s set in a world where superheroes have become corrupted and abusive of their powers, so someone creates “the Boys”, a group that monitors superhero activity to make sure they don’t get out of hand. This article will introduce you to the main players: Hughie, Wee Hughie, Frenchie, Mother’s Milk, The Female (aka Annie), Billy Butcher, and the rest of the group.

The first volume, titled The Name of the Game, covers the first year or so of the group’s activities. In this arc, we are introduced to the group and find out how each member became involved. Hughie is a young man who finds himself living in a world where superheroes can’t be trusted. A series of tragic events lead him to join. The Boys take their revenge on Starlight, who was responsible for Hughie’s father’s death. Frenchie is an eccentric French psychopath who aspires to work in film.
The storyline of The Boys
It concerns the titular group of vigilantes as a superhero team who have been corrupted to the point that they have individually taken to villainous pursuits. Combating corrupt superheroes with their violent methods, they set out to take down celebrities, politicians, and other powerful figures who are secretly super-powered. It has also been suggested that their cause reflects the real-world ideals of the American far-right. Ennis draws on his experiences as a member of the British armed forces in the Falklands War and conflicts in Northern Ireland, in his depictions of war. The Boys was initially published by Vertigo. In 2014, Dynamite Entertainment licensed several projects from the series including its titular characters and a spin-off book entitled The Boys: Old Friends.

The storyline of The Boys
The Boys tells the story of a private military contractor in Washington, D.C., during the height of the Iraq War. The series revolves around “the Seven,” seven otherwise ordinary Americans with extraordinary powers who are employed by this private military contractor for what seems like their day-to-day jobs. . . . These boys are employed by The Seven, “a team of the world’s most powerful mercenaries,” to fight global terrorism and prevent anarchy. They are ordinary people, but they have a secret.
They are all “gifted,” with special powers, which they use as needed to complete their mission. These boys’ special skills range from manipulating gravity (Barry in particular) to creating fire out of thin air (Blaine). But it seems that these abilities don’t make them super-heroes. . . .
Antony Starr of The Boys responds to the MCU Wolverine fan castings
Recently, rumors surfaced that there was a new Wolverine in town and that actor Tom Hardy might be stepping into the role. The news understandably caused some waves among fans who were excited and unsure of what to think. But one person we didn’t expect to hear from is Antony Starr, who played the Boys’ Hughie in season one on FX. He had this to say about the rumored casting:
“I’m intrigued by it,” Starr said of Hardy playing Logan. “I’m intrigued by it, but who knows until we see him on set. I’ve only had one conversation with [director James Mangold], but he’s like, ‘Don’t hold back, man. Tell me what you think if it’s not working.'”
