However, sometime after Starlight joins them, she discovers that the team of The Seven is not really what she thought, not only because of their eccentric personalities. She but also because of the way each of them managed to obtain her powers thanks to the Vought International company. Which usually gives certain people Compound V when they are just babies. But, most of the members of the original Seven team didn’t get their powers in the same way, but long before they were born.

According to The Boys series comics, some of the members of The Seven think that they were born with their powers and that they are a natural part of them. But, the reality is that they also received the injection of compound V when they were in the womb of their mothers. This means that the members who believe they were born with the powers naturally, like Homelander, are wrong. Because they are living weapons for the company to contract with the government and use for profit as they please.
