Payback are the "Second most popular superteam" in the universe organization created by Vought-American and an antagonistic faction in the adult comic-book series The Boys. They are an obvious parody of the Avengers.
The Payback will be in Season 2 of the Amazon adaptation of the same name.
Although technically the team leader is Soldier Boy, the heavy weight of the team Stormfront an original Nazi survivor from World War 2 and one of the first people ever exposed to Compound V he has other ideas and completely disrespects his other teammates at every opportunity. They were approached by a Vought-American representative who asked them to attack the Boys. The ensuing fight did not go well for Payback, with all of the members either dead or badly injured mostly by Billy Butcher himself. Every member of Payback had at one time or another tried to join the Seven, the premier super team, but been denied.
Payback is a Dynamite Entertainment team created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Darick Robertson. The team first appears in The Boys #7. The team is parody of the Marvels Avengers, with Tek Knight an analogue of Iron Man, Stormfront taking cue from Thor, the Crimson Countess inspired by the Scarlet Witch, Mind-Droid inspired by Vision, Swatto drawing inspiration from Hank Pym, and the patriotic Soldier Boy parodying Avengers leader Captain America. Playing up on the Marvel and DC competitiveness, Payback is often referenced as a second rate Seven team.
