I can dig it and despite how fanboy I am about "my things" I am reaping the benefits of how well prepared this is without being so into the comic that the slightest change annoyed me.

Very glad I read the Wiki before the spoiler tag, now I'm kinda just waiting...
Yeah, the thing is, while it does go well off the rails in a number of ways, I'm not bothered because they absolutely fucking nailed the characters. That's what's most important, imo. You can tell your own version of events as long as you capture what made the characters great in the source material.

That's why The Boys is awesome, and Jennifer Lawrence's Mystique is worthless garbage.
