Season 3 will formally introduce Soldier Boy — the unique superhero that fought in World Warfare II who will be played by Supernatural star Jensen Ackles.
The primary episode’s title is a reference to Soldier Boy’s superhero crew, Payback, an apparent parody of The Avengers. “Payback, on this planet of our present, was the Seven earlier than the Seven,” Kripke informed EW. “We can be exploring the historical past of that crew and all of the members in it.”

“Via the historical past of the supes, we are able to inform a bit bit in regards to the historical past of America and the way we ended up within the present fraught place that we’re in. Soldier Boy offers us a chance to try this,” mentioned Kripke.Within the comedian collection, Soldier Boy’s Payback crew included Stormfront (who was launched in Season 2, a play on Thor), Eagle the Archer (additionally appeared briefly in Season 2, a Hawkeye parallel), Crimson Countess (a Scarlett Witch knockoff), Thoughts-Droid (that’s Imaginative and prescient), Swatto (Ant-Man, in fact), and Tek Knight (an in depth proxy to Iron Man).
