    My comment about Madelyn Stillwell being “both a chilly ‘wire mother’ and an incestuous ‘cloth mother’ to the emotionally crippled Homelander” alludes to his having been raised in a lab instead of having been allowed to bond with a mother, to psychologist Harry Harlow’s maternal bonding/deprivation experiments with rhesus macaques (monkeys), and to Stillwell’s supervisory (“wire mother”) relationship and disturbing sexual and mommy surrogate (“cloth mother”) relationship with Homelander. Harlow took infant rhesus monkeys away from their mothers and raised them in a laboratory setting with two mother substitutes: a “wire mother” (made only of wire and wood) and a “cloth mother” (covered with foam rubber and terry cloth). He discovered that no matter which “mother” had and provided their nourishment, the infant monkeys “bonded” with the “cloth mother.”

    I like what they did with the series. It’s actually better than the comic book I think.
