The Boys Season 4 Episode 6: Who Is Webweaver and What Are His Powers

In Short
  • Webweaver is a ripoff of Spider-Man in The Boys comics.
  • In The Boys TV show, Webweaver makes an appearance in episode 6.
  • Webweaver is being played by Dan Mousseau, a Canadian actor, in The Boys.

The Boys Season 4 is currently running on Amazon Prime and with each episode, this show is giving us something new and equally weird to talk about. However, in The Boys Season 4 Episode 6 Webweaver made an appearance, and trust me when I say it, even though he is a Spider-Man ripoff, he is nothing like Peter Parker. So, in this article, find out who Webweaver is and what his powers are.

What Are Webweaver’s Powers

In The Boys Season 4 Episode 6, we see that Webweaver is a twisted ripoff of Marvel’s Spider-Man. However, Webweaver got his powers when he was injected with Compound V and not by a spider bite.

Also, Spider-Man usually shoots synthetic webbing but in the case of Webweaver, he shoots web organically well…a bit too similar to an actual spider. If you know what I’m talking about, that’s great, and if you don’t, let’s just say he shoots the web exactly from the body part a real spider does and I’m not elaborating anymore.

Webweaver’s Real Name is Patrick Whitehall

Webweaver aka Patrick Whitehall was first introduced to us in The Boys Season 4 Episode 4. In that episode, Butcher said that he spent $50,000 on a Heroine enema that he gave to Webweaver in exchange for information about Firecracker.

We also saw him as a playable character in the Vought Tournament of Heroes that Ryan was playing in The Boys Season 4 Episode 3. After all this, Webweaver was seen at the V52 Expo, an event where the first look at the character was revealed with a statement saying,

“We can confirm he has completed his rehab stint at the Global Wellness Center in Malibu, and will be making his first public appearance next Thursday.”

And finally, Webweaver has made an appearance in The Boys season 4 Episode 6 where we saw MM (Mother’s Milk, who hasn’t been recast) help him take drugs and if you think he helped him snort or inject them, god bless your soul. After Webweaver passed out from the drug intake, Hughie and MM stole his costume to infiltrate Tek Knight’s party.

Dan Mousseau, a Canadian actor, plays the role of Webweaver in The Boys. He makes his first appearance as the web-slinging supe in Season 4 Episode 6. We see that he is a complete junkie and he passed out as soon as M.O. gives him the drugs after which Hughie and him stole his costume. Webweaver is not dead yet so there is a possibility that we might get to see more of him in the future episodes, till then stay tuned with is for further updates!
