There have been several curiosities about the truth bomber' in The Boys, as Firecracker is shown promoting an event titled "The Truth Bomb with Firecracker." Well, we actually don't know what it is, as the show has not revealed it, but there are several theories regarding it, calling it a new character or weaponized form of information.
The first trailer for Season 4 of The Boys reveals two enigmatic and frightening new superheroes. Amazon Prime Video has finally released the first look at The Boys Season 4 after months of anticipation. Tensions between the titular vigilante squad and the deceitful Homelander (Antony Starr) remained at an all-time high in the previous season of the show. Unfortunately for the guys, Homelander is now more powerful than ever, capable of doing whatever he wants with little to no consequences. Homelander's supporters have found an adversary in Starlight (Erin Moriarty), who is sick of Vought's superheroic hijinks.
You may have heard about different names for different characters that are not related to their real names, including Homelander, Billy Butcher, and Mother's Milk. Recently, fans have been wondering about Truth Bomber, as Firecracker is shown promoting an event called "The Truth Bomb with Firecracker." So let us get into detail.

Several Theories and Details on the Truth Bomber’ in the Boys
There are several theories regarding the 'truth bomber' in The Boys. Many sites have claimed that it might be a new character as Valorie Curry's character Firecracker is shown promoting an event dubbed "the Truth Bomb." However, other sources have made other theories. So what actually is it? Let us get into detail.
However, there has not been any official statement in the series about the 'truth bomber'. Firecracker is a new character featured in Season 4 of The Boys. She, like Sister Sage, was created exclusively for the Prime Video series. Both do not appear in the original comics. So we don't know what the "truth bomb" is as well. We will have to wait until an official statement is released to know the true meaning of the word truth bomber or truth bomb.
The Truth Bomber was named by Firecracker during an event.
Well, as per Netflix Deed, according to one fan idea, "Truth Bomb" could be a weaponized type of knowledge or disclosure that reveals the evil underbelly of the superhero world in Season 4. Given the series' predilection for delving into the corrupt and ethically dubious parts of superhero culture, it's possible that "Truth Bomb" is a metaphorical explosive device designed to uncover painful truths and disrupt the Supes' carefully created public image.
The connection between Firecracker and "Truth Bomb" raises issues about her goals and how this enigmatic notion fits with her character. Although we are not sure about it, there are several questions raised, including some from a source asking: Could Firecracker be a whistleblower within the superhero community, determined to expose long-hidden secrets and lies? Does she perceive "Truth Bomb" as a tool for manipulating public perception and furthering Homelander's and his supporters' agendas? Well, again, we are not sure about it.
Also, there is another question, wondering if Truth Bomber is a new character. However, as per Blurred Reality, it is merely an incident. As seen in the teaser clip, the event is held on a stage with a large crowd in attendance. Similarly, the title "The Truth Bomb with Firecracker" implies that it is exclusively about Firecracker. The Truth Bomber is almost certainly not a new character.

The Boys is an irreverent look at what happens when superheroes, who are as popular as celebrities, as influential as politicians, and as revered as gods, abuse their superpowers rather than using them for good. It's the powerless versus the superpowerful as The Boys embark on a heroic quest to uncover the truth about "The Seven" and their formidable Vought backing.
The trailer depicts Homelander and Starlight's fandom rivalry, which mirrors real-life politics. The initial look's most fascinating feature, however, is the introduction of the new superheroes. In the trailer, audiences witness Sister Sage (Susan Heyward) and Firecracker (Valorie Curry) supporting Homelander during one of his events. Prior to the trailer's release, it was unclear where Sister Sage and Firecracker stood. While it remains to be seen how significant the two new superheroes are, it's fascinating that both are in some way connected to Homeland.
