The Boys star Antony Starr recently addressed the debate on who would win the fight between his character Homelander and Superman.

Since the popularity of the hit Prime Video series, fans have been debating a theoretical fight between the two characters as they both have similar powers and differences in their morality.

Starr's The Boys co-star Jack Quaid, who voices the Man of Steel in My Adventures with Superman, gave his two cents on the debate and proclaimed that the DC hero would prevail in the fight.

Antony Starr Responds to Homelander vs. Superman Debuperman Debateate

In a recent interview, Starr was asked to weigh in on who would win in a fight between Homelander and Superman, especially in the aftermath of Quaid siding with the DC hero.

He argued that his The Boys character would easily win the fight as he believed that his lack of morality would give him an advantage over the Man of Steel when they face off.

"Oh, really? Is that what he thinks? Here's why Homelander would kick Superman's ass. There's no Kryptonite factor, and Homie would fight so dirty. He's the [type to go], 'Oh, you got me!' as he goes down and then comes up and throws sand in your eyes," the Homelander actor explained.

"He's a dirty dude, man. Whereas Superman is always like, 'Oh, I wouldn't do that. Oh, there's innocent children that might get hurt.' Homie's going to human shield himself with the kids."

Starr gave some valid points on his argument in the debate as the first three seasons of The Boys have proven that Homelander will do whatever he can to win a fight and is always willing to cross the line regardless of morality.

However, it is also dependent on which version of Superman is Homelander facing in the theoretical fight since there have been different interpretations of the character throughout the years and some of them have grappled with darker personalities.

It is an interesting debate that will go on for many years as more people weigh in and share different arguments that show valid points for each side.
