|~ James Stillwell to the Boys after slaughtering the G-Men.|
|“||Think about it. This is par for the course with you. When have you ever done anything remotely interesting or original? What have you thought of to do that the lowest speck of this pointless species couldn't, were they to be granted your level of power? And what next, destroy another airliner? Dismember more families, that kind of thing? A spoiled child's personal Auschwitz. It's so petty it's actually quite embarrassing.||„|
|~ James Stillwell berates Homelander over everything he's done.|
|~ James Stillwell's last words.|
James Stillwell is the overarching antagonist of the controversial comic book series The Boys, and a minor character in its sequel-spin-off The Boys: Dear Becky. He was a high-ranking executive within Vought-American who took charge of Supes on all advices.
The mysterious man who attended to the Seven's meetings and is described to be more professional and pragmatic than them for his coldblooded plans to save Vought-American's image. Some of these plans were the G-teams massacre, Pre-wizz locked in a container and thrown in the ocean, telling Payback to attack the Boys and involving himself in the takeover of the White House. He became Mr. Edgar's (Vought's CEO) assistant at a young age, this helped his career.
He also has a great disliking towards Homelander as he has had many conflicts with him and is disgusted and annoyed with his egotistical behavior, not to mention correctly seeing him as a potential threat to Vought's interests should he ever get out of control. An example of their antagonistic relationship is when the superhero sent him a whore to distract him while the Supes Awards was carried on during "Herogasm".
He is brilliant at planning and had met Nina in Russia to discuss the supes that had exploding heads. His only human moments are when he starts to relax around Jess Bradley and when he aided Frenchman.
He has very cold during critical situations even when an insane Homelander expressed the wish to kill him and stated that Stillwell is a real superhuman. James asked the madman to let him commit suicide and avoid all the carnage to come but Homelander told him to keep watching alive.
He is last seen being introduced to True and says Bad Product.
Twelve years later, when Wee Hughie suspects James as the individual who sent him Butcher's diary, he finds James as a breaded hermit man who wanders around a pineapple plantation while muttering good and bad products and quoting Milton Friedman repeatedly.

|~ Stillwell to Hughie.|
James Stillwell possesses no superhuman abilities or powers yet his cold and calculating demeanor and personality cast him as being exceptionally fearless even in the presence of powered men and women who can rip steel in half and throw cars like toys. As such he is also quite capable of directing them around with confidence, aided of course by his position at Vought American.
