|“||The point is that you are under a misconception that we are a superhero company. We are not. What we are, really, is a pharmaceutical company. And you are not our most valuable asset. That would be our confidential formula for Compound V. Which you, man-child that you are, released into the wild.||„|

|~ Stan Edgar's most famous quote.|
Stan Edgar is one of the overarching antagonists of the black comedy superhero TV series The Boys, appearing as a minor antagonist in season one and the overarching antagonist of season two.
He is the CEO of Vought International and Madelyn Stillwell's superior. He is also responsible for Compound V turning people into superhuman beings. After Stillwell's death, he decides to directly approach in managing the company and The Seven.
He is portrayed by Giancarlo Esposito, who also played Gustavo Fring in Breaking Bad, Sidney Glass in Once Upon a Time, Frank Dawson in Okja, The Dentist in PAYDAY 2 and Moff Gideon in The Mandalorian.
At some point prior to the series, he became the CEO of Vought and using Compound V for other projects to make more profits.
During at an event, Edgar approaches Stillwell, rewarding her for her good work, Edgar tells Stillwell he will have her as President of the company once he's moved to "Belize", he tells her to enjoy herself before walking away. He never gets the chance to do this after Homelander murders Stillwell.
He makes Stormfront a member of The Seven and a replacement for Translucent behind Homelander's back. He is later confronted by Homelander about hiring Stormfront without consulting with him. He later holds a press conference and denying any knowledge of Compound V, and claims to do a full investigation on it. He blames it on Stillwell and vows to get to the bottom of it. He then introduces Stormfront to the crowd as the savior of the day.
Edgar is shown to be a calm, collected, and sophisticated person, but a very enigmatic man. He seems to be very friendly towards others like his conversation with Stillwell.
|“||Hey, don't go planning my retirement yet. Just saying, someone needs to run this shitshow when I move to Belize. Enjoy yourself, Madelyn.||„|
|~ Stan to Madelyn Stillwell.|
|“||Well, let me remind you. You slipped Compound V to terrorists all over the globe to get you and your cronies into national defense. But maybe at the cost of destroying the whole company.||„|
|~ Edgar to Homelander.|
|“||And I don't appreciate that the FDA now knows about Compound V, or that it's only a matter of time before the public finds out. While you're preening at the Golden Globes we're busy, running around like maniacs, trying to clean up the mess you made. I don't have to consult you about Stormfront or anything else. Now... I believe you have a premiere of Tek Knight Lives to go to?||„|

- Ironically, much of Stan's role, personality, and character seem to be in line with and inspired by James Stillwell, the comic book version of Madelyn Stillwell. Both men were calm, cold, and were in charge of much of the Seven's gruesome acts.
- There are however some key differences between the two with the biggest being that Stilwell showed little to no human emotion while Edgar did show genuine joy as well as annoyance with Stormfront for being a Nazi, even admitting that she did bother him in the season 2 finale.
