Class is about to be in session for Godolkin University students. The Boys spinoff Gen V is giving us more supe action combined with the oft-brash stupidity and hyper-competitive nature of college age folks. No one under the age of 21 should have all that power, tbh. Thanks to Prime Video, we finally have a final roster for all the major characters who will appear in Gen V’s upcoming season. Some of them are students fighting for a coveted spot with the Seven, while others are somehow trying to wrangle superpowered young adults. Here are all the new characters we will meet in Gen V when The Boys‘ spinoff releases in September.
Who Are The Boys Spinoff Gen V’s Main Characters?
Godolkin University Student Supes
Obviously, this series will center on Godolkin students. Let’s meet our new supes.
Marie Moreau, Gen V’s Main Character
Anyone who has seen a Gen V trailer or paid close attention to The Boys is familiar with Marie. She’s the show’s primary protagonist, an 18-year-old superhero with the power to control and weaponize her own blood. As an incoming freshman at Vought-run Godolkin University in Gen V, Marie Moreau is eager to prove she has what it takes to join The Seven, but is sidetracked by a mystery she begins to unravel at the school.

Andre is a junior at Godolkin University—and this Gen V character has magnetic powers. He’s Golden Boy’s best friend and the son of famous superhero, Polarity; Andre has big shoes to fill as he’s set to take over the Polarity name once his dad retires. When Andre realizes that something is afoot at the school, he takes it into his own hands to try and figure out the mystery.
Played by: The character of Andre Anderson is played by Chance Perdomo in Gen V.
Emma Meyer (Also known as Little Cricket)
On Gen V, Emma is also known by her superhero name, Little Cricket, thanks to her ability to get super small.

Jordan is a competitive student at Godolkin University who will do anything to get to the top.

Godolkin University Staff, Parents, and Other Gen V Characters
What’s a college supe story without alumni, professors, and other miscellaneous people?! Here are the main Gen V characters who are not college students.
The supe known as Polarity is Andre’s father and a largely celebrated Godolkin University alumnus and trustee.

Indira Shetty is the dean of Godolkin University. She doesn’t have powers, but her background in superhero psychology and her peerless ability to analyze what makes supes tick make her indispensable to the school.

Sam is a troubled supe who is desperately trying to escape his unfortunate circumstances. He’s extremely powerful, with super strength and invulnerability.

Played by: The character of Sam is played by Asa Germann on Gen V.
Of course, we will also see The Boys characters like A-Train, Vought’s Ashley Barrett, Victoria Neuman, and (terrible) filmmaker Adam Bourke cross over to Gen V. They will give the show more of a tie to the main series, but there’s a lot of exciting stuff to explore with these new characters.
Gen V will hit Prime Video on September 29 with its first three episodes followed by weekly Friday releases.
