Supersonic was one of the most recent additions to The Seven and also had a history with Starlight in their younger days. Unfortunately, he met an untimely end at the hands of Homelander.
The former child hero looked like a promising ally to Starlight and the good guys but all the optimism was brought to a pretty gruesome end by the top supe. Let’s take a look at what led to the death of Supersonic.
Joining the cause
Supersonic went by the name ‘Drummer Boy’ as a youngster and was even part of an all-Supe boy band called Super-Sweet. It was during those days that he had a relationship with Starlight, which even made Hughie jealous for a moment.
At first, Starlight tries to discourage Supersonic from joining The Seven but he insists on staying on to help her because he’s been through so much in life, even overcoming addiction.
After officially becoming part of the team, Starlight tells him that he might need to help her and a few other like-minded supes when they eventually try to take Homelander down and he immediately agrees to it.
When Homelander belittles A-train, Supersonic tells him about the plan to take down Homelander and tries to get him on their side.
The view of a lifetime
After Homelander’s birthday celebration and Victoria Neuman’s press conference, Homelander orchestrated a hostile takeover and became the most powerful man in Vought. His ego is at an all-time high and there’s very little that can stop him.
After leaving Vought tower, Homelander suggests flying home and offers to carry Starlight but she’s hesitant. He presses her to agree and tells her that he’s got the perfect view to show her.
He takes her to a random rooftop and shows her the view that he was talking about, which turns out to be Supersonic’s body completely bludgeoned and mutilated.
He tells her he was tipped off by A-train about their plan to take him on and wanted to nip the problem in the bud as well as send a message to Starlight that no matter what she tries, she will never be a match for Homelander.
