The Boys showrunner Eric Kripke has been releasing photos from season three’s production on Twitter. Kripke’s latest post gives viewers a look at some delightfully tone-deaf PSA posters from Queen Maeve and Homelander encouraging the public to be respectful and positive. Check them out below:

The posters are dripping with irony since the two superheroes featured on the posters are both neither positive nor respectful, Homelander’s being particularly hypocritical given how cruel and sadistic his character is. Queen Maeve’s poster’s advice of having a positive attitude is not really reflected in her outlook either. Along with comical and over-the-top violence, social satire is a huge part of the appeal of the show. When season three of the show does finally drop to Prime Video, it’ll be fun to see how these hypocritical heroes fail to heed their own advice.
