|“||Oh, wow. What a surprise. A water crime. F**k me running. I swear to God, they only call me when there's trouble at a dock. Or a river or a lake, canal. A jetty. F***ing idiots. I could be doing so much more. But no, Vought just wants me to make my big pretty dives into the water and flash my f***ing biceps for Instagram. I mean, sure, four million hits a day, but still, it's f***ing demeaning.||„|
|~ The Deep to Starlight.|
The Deep, (his full name in TV series is Kevin), is a minor antagonist of highly controversial Comic book series The Boys and supporting antagonist in it's TV series adaptation. He is a member of The Seven, and a Super with aquatic abilities.
In the Amazon series of the same name, he is portrayed by Chace Crawford.
The Deep initially believes himself to be a high ranking member of The Seven, remarking to Starlight that he is The Seven's #2. The Deep uses this to his advantage, blackmailing Starlight into oral sex with him, something she is strongly against at the time.
The Deep uses this to mock her after, however, on advice from Queen Maeve, Starlight is able to move past it and ignore him. When they are on a mission, The Deep mocks Starlight frequently, showing himself to be a superior member of The Seven and believing himself to be more valuable to The Seven.
Sabbatical from The Seven
After Starlight reveals that she was sexually assaulted at the Believe Expo, the public begins to suspect that her assailant was The Deep. Vought becomes worried that their stock will dive and they will gain negative publicity for this, leading to them forcing The Deep to publicly apologize to Starlight.
As punishment, Vought sends The Deep to Sandusky on sabbatical from The Seven. The Deep finds this difficult initially, believing himself to be so much more than a small town. He questions when he will return to the public spotlight, however is shocked to find out that Vought does not intend on him returning.
In the comics
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.
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.
- He is a parody of Aquaman. Like Aquaman, The Deep is constantly underestimated and made fun of.
- In the comics, he his affably evil, but he's greedy.
