Does terror die in the comics?
In Tom Strong #12, it is revealed that the Black Terror had been killed in battle with the alien.
Later, Butcher’s dog Terror is found dead, and it is assumed by The Boys that Jack killed him.
Terror is a vicious bulldog that belongs to Billy Butcher. He somehow has been trained to sexually violate things on command. Otherwise hes a good doggy, except when he discreetly pees on the legs of the Homelander, the Ultimate Supe. All members of the Boys get on well with the lovable Bulldog, even the Female who shares an intolerance to contact with most, will affectionally scratch and play with Terror.
Butcher is extremely protective of Terror, despite the dog following him nigh everywhere and the nature of his work, there are few times when he tells Terror to run from the danger at present. Butcher also takes great offense to those that harm or threaten to harm Terror, as seen with Crimson Countess, and his meeting with Homelander in which the Truce between The Boys and The Seven is almost broken. After Butcher releases information on Jack from Jupiter, Black Noir kills Terror at the Flatiron building, with Butcher, assuming the killer to have been Jack, then killing him.
Meet Terror the dog in The Boys
Terror the dog is introduced in episode 5 of The Boys season 2.
After Billy’s offer of escape was rejected by Becca in episode 4, as she wanted to stay and raise her son, Billy is left in an even fouler mood than usual.
To help, he pays a visit to his Aunt Judy’s house where she has been looking after Billy’s dog, Terror.
However, Billy’s reunion with Terror is short-lived as the house is attacked by Black Noir, who had been tracking Billy after his meet-up with Becca.
Sadly, Terror is sent away with Judy again but it does sound like he’ll be back before too long.
Terror Explained: Billy Butcher’s Dog’s Comic Origins | The Boys (Amazon Prime)
Karl Urban has confirmed that Butchers dog Terror will be making a big impact on all-new episodes of Amazon Primes The Boys.
The first season of The Boys was a ratings and critical success for Amazon Prime, adapting Garth Enniss comic series to explore a world where having powers has turned superheroes into hedonistic psychopaths. Discussing the upcoming second season of the show at a C2E2 panel, series lead Karl Urban promised an appearance by his character Billy Butchers pitbull Terror.
Terror was a prominent part of The Boys comics from the start. He was Billys pet and the character that Billy showed the most affection for. Terror, in turn, was devoted to Billy, following him around on all his missions. Somehow, Billy had trained Terror to hump anything on command, a trick he used to humiliate supers and antagonize The Seven.
Terrors death at the hands of a super was a breaking point for Billy in the comics, causing him to go full-on scorched Earth against the entire superhero community in revenge, which lead to the murder of Jack from Jupiter and an escalation of tensions that nearly led to all-out war between The Seven and Billys crew.
In the first season of The Boys, Terror was noticeably absent from the show. Amazon Prime Series showrunner Eric Kripke had explained there was a simple reason why Terror was not included: it is incredibly difficult to work with animals on a show set and try to make them follow directions. Add in all the green screens, stunt setup and CGI machinery that was required to film the first season of The Boys, and Kripke frankly admitted the thought of adding an animal to the mix, running around the set and getting in everyones way was too much for him.
But now it seems fans will finally get to see Terror united with his master Karl Urban on-screen. It remains to be seen whether the animal will be a big part of the storyline for the upcoming season, or will simply make a cameo to honor his role in the comics.
The Boys show has not shied away from making major changes to the storyline from the comics in their adaptation. So it would not be a stretch to imagine they could do away with the entire Terror and Jack from Jupiter story arc and find some other way to make things even more personal between Billy Butcher and the main antagonist of the series, Homelander.
One major element that draws Billy and Homelander together in a major way going forward was already introduced at the end of the first season of The Boys when it was revealed (Spoilers!) that Billys presumed-dead wife Becca had been secretly raising Homelanders son, who is also superpowered.
Thus the emotional struggle for Billy in the second season will presumably be to accept the fact that his beloved wife is the mother of a super, a category of people he hates, whos father is his mortal enemy. No wonder Billy will need the emotional support of his faithful pitbull in the coming days. This news comes from ComicBook.com,
