But the day he saves his young neighbor played by Javon Walton (Euphoria, Umbrella Academy) from a gang of bullies, he recognizes him and makes it his mission to get him out of hiding while a wave of crimes descends on their hometown, Granite City.
In the first explosive images unveiled by Amazon, the hero demonstrates his superhuman strength on several occasions as well as his ability to regenerate. His alter ego, the famous Samaritan, is also unveiled in a costume that is reminiscent of that of Black Noir, one of the protagonists of the series The Boys.
