The epic finale of Amazon Prime season two The boys concluded with the horrific ending of his best villain. Stormfront from the superhero show was nearly killed when his actions awakened the powers of Homelander’s young son Ryan. Still, her survival is entirely possible, and there are several reasons to believe that death wouldn’t be the end for the overpowered bigot, if she died at all.

Stormfront certainly had every reason to lose his life during the events of the Finals. Beaten up by three different Supers at once, stabbed in the eye by Becca Butcher and ultimately lasered to death by Ryan as her heat vision sawed through her limbs and left her mumbling in German on the floor, it was a miracle that she didn’t. t die on the spot. But the Nazi had already proven to be extremely resilient, and even when his body was visibly damaged by Homelander’s heat vision, his wound seemed to heal fairly quickly.
Accelerated regeneration is not an uncommon power for supes. The character introduced by Gecko earlier in the series featured the ability to regrow entire limbs after they were cut. Other heroes like Kimiko and maybe even Black Noir can bounce back from severe physical punishment. So if Stormfront truly survived her final clash and is, as Homelander has reported to the public, simply in custody, then it might only be a matter of time before she gets back on her feet to fight. for the right to hate.
But it doesn’t even scratch the surface how odd his survival could become. In The boys comic book, the substance that confers their powers, Compound V, is said to have inherently regenerative properties. When the original seven-limbed Lamplighter is killed, Vought International manages to revive him because of the V compound in his system, but for all intents and purposes he’s a zombie. It could still happen to the series’ Lamplighter, but if the series introduced this possibility, it would apply just as much to Stormfront as it does to Arsonist.
This would mean that death itself is not the end of any of the supes. Whether Stormfront really went through its ordeal is open to debate, given how easily Homelander could lie about his fate. But if the comics are any indication, then even death might not be the end of her story. And given the show’s propensity to put its own spin on the plot points of the source material, this could very well be the best way to bring it back.
In the comics, the Zombified Lamplighter accomplishes very little, but it could be drastically different for Stormfront. Stormfront’s alt-right militaristic fan base would understandably be drawn to conspiracy theories about her survival and what ‘really’ happened to her, even if she didn’t heal on her own or be resurrected. by the compound V.
If it were to really come back to the public eye, it might very well legitimize such theories. Stormfront has previously touted just how influential and dangerous its supporters can be, and while we’ve seen a hint about it before, the worst could very well be yet to come.
