Stormfront is a character in the Amazon original series, the Boys. She was formerly known as Liberty and her real name was Klara Risinger, wife of the founder of Vaught International and compound V, Dr. Frederick Vought. She and her husband used to be Nazis and she still is a closet Nazi. They were part of the Third Reich, during Hitler’s reign. As they supported the genocides that happened. Since she was born in Berlin, Germany in 1919, she is more than a century old. She also had a daughter, Chloe, who did not have Stormfront’s abilities. And hence died in her old age.
She joins the seven after Transilcent’s death comes out in the open in season 2. Although she publicly denies being a Nazi, she still promotes white supremacist agenda. Stormfront amasses a huge following, against Homelander at first but later they become lovers and a power couple of sorts. She portrays an edgy, progressive, and somewhat trendy feminist persona out in the public eye but in reality, she is a sadistic person with a racist mindset. She is one of the main two antagonists in season 2 of the boys.
Was She Dead In The Season 2 Climax Of The Boys?
No, Stormfront survives, albeit barely, and is seen in season 3. What happened was to take down Stormfront as the boys (Vigilante) gears up to destroy her with firearms, Annie and Hugie look for a more non-violent way to take her and Vaught down. They meet A-train who wants the Nazi out of the Seven and hence gives Starlight her past records from the archives in the Vought. Starlight and Hugie then release these records online, sharing Stormfront’s Nazi reality with the world which makes her very angry and she rushes toward where the boys are at. She flips over the car with Becca and Ryan. While Butcher, Ryan, and Becca run away, Annie and Kimiko face Stormfront and fight.
While the guys watch as they couldn’t do much, the ladies, Starlight, Kimiko, and Maeve, injure her badly. She flies away from there and reaches Billy, Ryan, and Becca. She holds Becca’s throat against a tree while Butcher tries to hit her in no vain. Becca even stabs a knife in her eyes and she is about to kill Becca when Ryan, scared and panicked, uses his eye lasers, a power he inherited from his dad, Homelander, and quite literally fries Stormfront. Although in doing so, he also unintentionally kills his own mother. They injure Stormfront so severely that she is almost unrecognizable. She has lost her right hand and both her legs, and she also has third-degree burns all over her body. She lays there muttering in German when Homelander rescues her and takes her back.
Why Did Stormfront Kill Herself?
Stormfront had lost everything. She just laid on a hospital bed with multiple machines in the Seven tower. She couldn’t get up or do any function. While Homelander visits her occasionally, he just uses her, and not even because he loves her, Homelander loves nothing but himself. He wants her because she understands and accepts the darkness inside him. They are both so supremely messed up people that it is too much. She obviously feels alone, and helpless and her image completely destroyed in the world. She used to be one of the most powerful people alive, for a long time and now she was nothing more than a vegetable. People used to love her, believe in her, believe in what she said and what she believed in but all that is overthrown. Everything is over now. Hence she commits suicide when she’s done with everything.
