Does Black Noir Have a Shocking Secret Identity?

In the series, this character draws everyone’s attention all the time and there is a good reason for it. He never speaks nor sees his face. This is the biggest plot of this story that we loved all the time. Because of the secret identity we always want to know what is actually behind the black mask.

Maybe you don’t know, he is a clone of Homelander! After revealing his true face, we get stunned because he is most likely Antony Starr. That’s why we found Black Noir has all the power of Homelander.

The main focus of this character is to keep close to Homelander and wait for the final order. The order to kill his brother. Finally, the day came when Homelander tried to take over the U.S. Government.

There is no option without our mysterious dark hero. Because he is the only one who has more power than Homelander. He acts like a robot because of his silent act. That’s why we saw his eccentric behavior in the TV series.

Will Black Noir Betray Homelander?

Sometimes we need some twist in the story. So, in “The Boys” there is some genuine game-changer for fans. Following the twist, this character reveals his real identity. It works like a spark for the series.

As we know, in the TV series, Hamelander actor Antony Starr is not playing his clone character. This character is played by Nathan Mitchell (A Canadian Actor). He is not the exact Homelander replica in the series.

There was an impact needed to move the show forward and fighting against Homelander was something like that.

Why Black Noir Never Speak or Remove His Mask?

To keep the identity secret and create some mystery, this hero never speaks or removes his mask at all. As you see in the series, Billy Butcher makes Homelander main targets as well as his clone.

In the meantime, Black Noir was sent to deal with Naqib (Terrorist). We also saw him crying after returning home. He didn’t have a normal childhood. He also hunts down the person (Billy Butcher) who is actually the reason for The Seven’s Misfortune.
