In episode 6, “Herogasm,” Black Noir came to know that his former teammate at Payback, Soldier Boy was killing the members of the team, just to take revenge for them selling the once-hero out to the Russians, which ended in his imprisonment.

Black Noir cut out his tracking chip and went dark, hiding in an unknown location, waiting out for the potential conflict. This goes on to upset Homelander, who believed that Black Noir was among the few supes he could rely on.

Black Noir was introduced in the first season of The Boys and is a significant supe serving on The Seven team, which is Vought International’s most important and useful team.

Earlier in episode 5, fans finally got a look at what Black Noir looked like without his mask and how he received a fatal facial injury in Nicaragua. When working alongside Payback, Black Noir’s teammates included Crimson Countess, Mindstorm, the TNT Twins, Swatto, Gunpowder, and Soldier Boy. Many f those characters have died since Black Noir’s time with them.
