A question of merchandising. I would like to know why the Homelander, Black Noir and Queen Maeve are on a full one percent each, compared to the rest of us on point seven five.
~ The Deep in the comics.

The Deep is a supporting antagonist in the 2006 controversial comic book series The Boys. He is a member of The Seven, and a Super with aquatic abilities.


In the comic series, the Deep is a lesser member of the Seven and is, therefore, neglected by Vought and seen as a lower priority. He does not seem to have any of the murderous tendencies of his counterparts, nor is he particularly sexually deviant, and is usually only concerned with the amount of money he makes. But he does have the ability to fly and has displayed superhuman strength and durability. Furthermore, unlike his TV counterpart, he isn't the one who rapes Starlight with him being one of the only members who doesn't partake in the assault. However, he does allow it to happen.

He is the only surviving member along with Starlight. At the end of the comic, he joins a new superhero group called True. His appearance differs from his TV version as, aside from being of African ethnicity in the Comic, he also wears a large diving helmet, which he never takes off due to an ancient Atlantian curse.

  • The Deep is a villainous parody of Marvel's Namor and DC's Aquaman. Like Aquaman and Namor, The Deep is constantly underestimated and made fun of.
  • In the TV series, he appears to take the A-Train's mocking of Starlight.
