If you think being a teen was rough, just imagine what it would be like if you were trying to control a set of superhuman abilities. Such is the cross that the characters must bear on Prime Video’s upcoming series, Gen V. A spin-off of the streamer’s critically-acclaimed title The Boys, Gen V follows the lives of a handful of up-and-coming heroes as they learn how to perfect their powers and become productive and heroic members of society. At the same time, they’re still just kids making their way into adulthood – a fun twist that complicates the characters’ journeys. In an interview with Prime Video prior to the SAG-AFTRA strike, stars Jaz Sinclair and Sean Patrick Thomas opened up about the struggles that the young supes-in-training face and how they aren’t so different from normies.
