That's one of the great wonders of fantasy, and of creative art in general.
I've known a few tech CEO's, and more than a few other C-level types, back when I was an executive, and none of them were like what you describe. Sure, they had special motivations to make the company successful given their bonuses were constructed accordingly, but that was true of all of us, just to a lesser degree. Some CEO's were good at it and some sucked. But when they got drunk, they all got stupid like the rest of us.
If you wanted Homelander to be a more likeble superhero, more down to the standard image/perception we have of the "super" good guys, after almost a century of comic books and 20+ years of superhero movies and tv series, then you are looking for something wrong here.
They made Homelander (and most the other superheroes) like that on purpose, total egomaniac pieces of s*it with no empathy at all towards the other people (super or regular). Only looking for fame, prestige and money. To the point you cannot even understand who are the good guys and the villains anymore.
If you think about it, in real life, most VIPs (actors, singers, politicians etc) and other people supposed to be so too (CEO like Steve Jobs, influencers, etc) can be depicted in the same way.
Didn’t know that. Figured from the discussion that she was a new character in show. Obviously I’m not watching the show any longer.
