This series follows the conflict between two superhuman groups, one named The Seven and the other names The Boys, and The Seven is one of those groups who are superheroes in the eyes of the people but end up doing very shading things and exploiting their powers and that’s where the conflict between both groups start.
The Boys decide to bring an end to their practices and the creation of superhumans through artificial fluids which give them the power to exploit the commoners.

Is Gen V Related To The Boys?
The Gen V series is actually a spin-off series to The Boys and belongs to the same universe just the time is different. For those who have watched The Boys series, you do know about the entire scenario of how Vought International has been creating superhumans using an artificial fluid that they produce and how this superhero team who are funded by Vought go on to be idolized in the eyes of people and at the same time exploit their powers and take advantage of commoners, and that is where The Boys a team of genius minds and powers, get into the scene and they start challenging the Vought Superheroes and aim at shutting the organization down. Now the superheroes that are produced by Vought are known as Supes as we all know and The Sevens which are the main Vought Superheroes of The Boys series aren’t the first ones in the universe. There have been many such teams in the previous years and will be there in the coming years and the Gen V series is supposedly going to show the stories of G-men (whom we heard about in the first season of The Boys) who are being tested to be worthy of the superhero team in a university which is being run by the Vought International Company. In this series, we will see all the shady things they are taught and what they end up doing on their journey to being the so-called superheroes.
