A Review of The Boys Presents: Diabolical an animated TV series

The Boys Presents: Diabolical continues the tradition of Harley Quinn (animated TV series) and Invincible of depicting ultra-violence in a TV animated series.  In The Boys Presents: Diabolical there are lots depictions of ultraviolence and of course you can really go all out with the ultraviolence in an animated TV show rather than a live acting version. There is little difference in cost in drawing a peaceful scene or a violent scene. A violent scene in a live action series requires the use of props and CGI and a violent scene is more expensive than a scene without violent special effects.  The Boys Presents: Diabolical, do not press the link if you are squeamish, is the second The Boys media project. The series known simply as “The Boys”, terrible name, has Homelander, a great actor, using his Superman type power of heat/laser vision on people which is pretty horrific. Homelander is what if Superman was secretly a bad guy and a narcissist psychopath like the Joker BUT with a need to be loved i.e., an insecure joker.  The Homelander in The Boys Presents: Diabolical does the same melting flesh technique in the live actor version but in the animated version the melting flesh scenes are shown more often, for a longer period and in more detail, and close ups.  Do not press the link that follows if you have psychopathological and/or tendencies toward narcissism, The Boys Presents: Diabolical is not for children and I would give it an XXX rating or X rating in legal terms since XXX is not a thing legally. This is perhaps the most violent American animated TV series I have ever seen and I watch a lot of animated stuff both American and Japanese!  However, watching the series was great and if you are over 18 and not too impressionable then by all means watch the series!
