Queen Maeve from The Boys

Queen Maeve (Maggie Shaw) is a character in the Amazon TV series The Boys. Maeve is a member of The Seven, a group of “superheroes” who have become morally corrupt and use their powers to do more harm than good. Despite her cynicism, Maeve proves to be more self-aware and principled than the rest of her team. Her powers include super strength, agility, resilience, and stealth. Maeve’s name originates from the warrior Queen Medb of old Irish Mythology. Her armor evokes the image of an ancient warrior princess (think Xena and Wonder Woman), featuring an intertwining maroon and gunmetal breastplate design with a herringbone pattern on the skirt and cross-body straps.
