Gen V, the highly-anticipated spinoff of The Boys, just debuted the first look at the glorious Golden Boy via the Vought International Twitter account. It also links to the Godolkin University website which offers a glimpse at campus life at the superhero university, as well as a promise for merchandise. Take a look at Golden Boy and Godolkin University down below.
Gen V Showcases Godolkin University
Gen V will focus on a superhero college, specifically Godolkin University, or God U. The series promises to include all the grit, humor, gore, and societal reflection of the original show, but with the added excitement of the raging hormones, young adult angst, and experimentation with drugs and sex that come with college life. Gen V will feature a diverse cast of young super-powered college students who attend an institution run by Vough International, competing against each other for contracts in the best cities.
Goldokin University’s website is live and looks very much like a real campus. It features shots of the facilities, professors who make you buy their books for their class because they’re colossal a-holes and even statues erected of erection-worthy alumni. Or just rich alumni who paid for their erection. Regardless, GodU has all of the trademarks of the finest higher education campuses around the world.
With its impeccable resources, esteemed faculty, and impressive alumni list, we can be sure the supers that fly out of this institution are of the highest caliber.
We can’t wait for more information on Gen V, but until then, The Boys Seasons 1-3 are now streaming on Prime Video as well as the Emmy-nominated animated anthology series The Boys Presents: Diabolical. Or take a virtual tour of God U.
