"The Boys"- Enter 'Starlight'

The first episode of "The Boys" Season Three is "Payback", starring Erin Moriarty as 'Starlight', Antony Starr as 'Homelander', Jessie T Usher as 'A-Train', Nate Mitchell as 'Black Noir', Jack Quaid as 'Hughie Campbell', Laz Alonso as 'Mother's Milk', Karen Fukuhara as 'Kimiko' and Karl Urban as 'Billy Butcher', streaming in 2021 on Amazon Prime Video:

'Starlight' (aka 'Annie January') is a member of 'The Seven', group of superheroes. She was briefly excommunicated from the group after she was discovered to be a mole and ally of 'The Boys'. Annie January is as down-to-earth and sincere as they come; the girl next door with superpowers. 

And as Starlight, 'Defender of Des Moines', all she’s ever wanted to do is save the world. So when she’s selected to join The Seven, it’s every dream she’s ever had come true. However that dream becomes her worst nightmare when this fresh-faced Midwesterner arrives in New York, and learns that the old adage is true: 'never meet your heroes'.

Jensen Ackles plays 'Soldier Boy', a former acquaintance of 'Stormfront', from her 'Liberty' days. 

"There's a history of 'Vought' that we're starting to map out because 'Soldier Boy' has been a mainstay of Vought for decades," said series creator Eric Kripke.

"He was like John Wayne there, and so as a result, we're writing the history of Vought and how all the characters weave in together. And yeah, now Liberty is definitely a part of that."
