A G-Wiz member explains that John Godolkin, the Professor X-like figure in the Boys universe, actually kidnaps children. They’re then promised to be turned into superheroes and all the toys, candies, money they want. At a young age they’re injected with compound v until they manifest powers. For those who don’t buy in into the program and wants to go back home are dealt with.
Added horror is it seems Godolkin is also molesting his own wards.
