As someone who read almost the entire comic, they did alter the nature of certain events and how certain characters are introduced and *woke-ify the show but the story is just too good to not experience.
*=genderswapping, raceswapping, feeling the need to have a character always callout something that is or might be sexist, changing a villains reason for destroying Mount Rushmore to "because they were racists, etc."

Warning show is rather violent though.

I love that JK Simmons voices Omni-man.

Though its got everything you could possibly want from a superhero story, robots, aliens, alternate dimensions, evil super-geniuses, talking dinosaurs. It comes from the creator of Walking Dead and totally deserves attention because it is probably my hands down favorite super hero comic.

I hope the voice acting steps up a bit as the actors get more into their characters.

Even good ol JK Simmons sounds a bit flat in a few scenes.

Understatement. It is an accurate depiction of living in a world with superheroes.

Never read the comics because of the early tracing scandal, and then because what we heard coming out about the plot was wierd and brutal and conveyed in a way that was off-putting; gave the first season a shot, really liked it, really like what they did with what they had.

I watched the entire season over the course of 2 days. Really good. I'm really glad they made it animated instead of live action

They still plan on going ahead with the live action adaptation.

Why? Why make 2 adaptations of the same comic?

Well I'll watch it probably. But I wonder how different it will be. Is it also a series or is it a movie?

As far as I know the plan is to bring it to the big screen.

I binged the whole thing starting Sunday night but mostly yesterday. It was very good. I didn't realise they changed plot stuff (and straight up omitted parts entirely) until after I finished. I don't care about spoilers and went ahead reading all the plot summaries of the comic. Some of the changes annoyed me in hindsight, but I think they'll have to change stuff later for sure because shit gets wacky. Even by comic standards. Its extreme to the point of parody at some parts and I did not see that coming from what we've seen so far. As crazy as this season got (the last 2 episodes were fantastic) it still had this seriousness overall that left you properly shocked. I can't take some of the things later seriously it broke my suspension of disbelief. The alternate dimension saga is extremely silly and convoluted.

Side-note, I got serious Vegeta vibes from Omni-Man. The Viltrumites are pretty much sophisticated Saiyans. It was hilarious how at the beginning they were talking about how hot he was. And I was like no shit, daddy got a phat booty tho. The animators seemed to delight in showing it off any chance they got too with some dramatic JoJo's style poses.

Does it have rape as a plot point, still?
If that was skipped over, I'll check it out, but if it hasn't shown up yet, I'll pass.

I think a live action version would have to cut out a ton of stuff or have a huge budget for special effects or it would look like crap

and even though Invincible is a MUCH better comic from what Ive read so far, The Boys kinda tells a vaguely similar story and beat them to the punch

I could imagine a lot of people reacting like Oh so this is the OTHER show about superheroes being really flawed individuals and how terrifying that would be

That comes much later on. I have no idea if they'll change that, it would actually fit the tone of the current show. Some of the other stuff though is ridiculous, hard to take seriously. I only read overall summaries for arcs so maybe I missed the nuance behind later events, but it looked like the writing went off a cliff.
