As pathetic as the fight was on the last show between Peter and Sylar, I actually thought it was really well done. I mean, I really doubt 2 superpowered people had ever actually fought before so it must've been really awkward for the both of them. Well done, pig.

But...no kamehameha battle? Come on. We should have had that atleast.

Steve

So Sylar eats the brains of his victims to gain their powers permanently, or what? It seems that he is 'improving' himself by taking the broken parts (as he seems to call them) and adding them to his own workings...

After reviewing the Wiki article on him it seems that he gets the powers of the people he kills. Still don't know why he has to take their brains tho...

AAAhmed46

What is his original power?

I dont think he was a normal person really, because of the way the camera was working for him, did some wonky split personality crap.

He's going to die. I mean that's just what happens in comic books. Which is what's great about this show, it's such a Silver-age comic book as far as plot twist styles go. It's awesome! I mean if/when Ando dies, that's when Hiro will turn all emo-goth and get a sword and start stopping time and cut some bitches up with his Katana with +3 of awesome.

I bet the bullet meant for DL hits Ando. That's just my bet.

It would be poetic, because Nikki/Jessica is his dream girl. Plus it would conflict Hiro deeply as he goes out of his way to get justice for Ando. It would draw Hiro to the front of just about every conflict except the one with the US government.

Ando is so gonna bite it.

Eden dies... >_<

I think maybe, just maybe Mr. Bennet himself has an ability, he can "mute" the powers of those around him; Eden's voice did nothing to him, but it seemed to be geting to the Haitian. He told Sylar his powers wouldn't work in the cell, and they apparently didn't untill Bennet was gone and Eden faced him alone. Unfortunately the Haitian was around when Bennet and Claire were talking to whatsherface and the cop tried to read their minds, so that doesn't really help us. Also, has Claire ever healed when her father was near by?

Plus, that was sorta fucked up when Bennet wiped Zack and his son's memories of Claire.... that was pretty fucked up indeed. I wonder why the Haitian is refusing to follow orders this time, speak, and why it's so important that Claire remembers.

Also, what the fuck was that gun that Eden had? That thing was weird.

T3hJudoChop
5th December 06, 12:35 PM
In a sporadic nutshell.

Eden is dead, or at least that's we are left to believe. She was going to try to kill Sylar, but Sylar went all Evil Jedi on her, and killed her. Somehow he was able to resist her persuasion abilities.

Everyone who knew about Claire's abilities had their memories wiped. Claire calls her Daddy. Daddy apparently did not know this was happening. Mysterious Mind Guy shows up in Claire's room and tells her that he was sent to wipe her memory, but he will not do that. Instead, he will let her remember everything and tells her "Claire, can you keep a secret". Yes, the mute has finally spoken.

After a brief chase involving Micah, DL, and Niki/Jessica, Niki realizes she cant trust herself because of Jessica, so she turns herself in to the cops, tells them she is a murderer.

Peter has a vision/dream as he is leaving the police station that he is the cause of the giant bomb explosion.

Mind-Reading cop and partner interrogate Claire and her daddy about the events at the school. Actually, it was the partner who asked the questions, and Matt tried to read his mind. Matt was blocked because The Mysterious Mind Guy was outside of the room blocking Matt's skills. Later, trying to track them, Matt sees Mysterious Mind Guy and Claire's dad walking together, and recognizes Mind Guy. Matt tries to read their minds, but can only get one word "Sylar"

That's all I remember, and the events didnt happen in that order. Probably the best bet for a quick recap is the wiki for Heroes.

Buzman
5th December 06, 03:58 PM
It was pretty obvious she blew her own brains out. Sklar says "That won't work on me" thinking she was gonna shoot him in the face, but she was just turning the gun on herself to prevent Sklar from taking her power.

Yeah, I didn't see that happening but why in the hell did they write that extremely cute girl out of the show? Of that I had no idea.

Since sylar's power is apparently figuring out how things work and altering his DNA to mimic it then maybe he figured out a way fix his DNA to block out the girls persuasion powers.

At any rate, Sylar's out on the prowl again.

Since Peter absorbs other peoples powers and can use them when other 'heroes' are around maybe if he's around alot of them all at once then it'll cause him to meltdown? That's what it looked like to me.

No idea really, this show kinda keeps you guessing.

GreenHornet
7th December 06, 08:27 AM
Peter seems to have an extra lucid ability since its the 4rth time he has visions (remember at the begining of the serie when he sees himself flying, then when he has a dream about the old man hes taking of, and in the 10th episode when he had a dream about Nathan accident).

I don't think he will be responsible for the explosion but rather that as the center of his vision he represents himself as the protagonist...
The radioactive redneck will blowout N.Y.
Cause now that his wife is dead he has nothing to lose and I see him going crazy over the world.

Sun Wukong
7th December 06, 03:52 PM
See, i was thinking it might be the radioactive redneck at first because he has the radioactive powers.

But, then i thought he could just be a red herring... or maybe peter is the red herring. Damn it.

So...peters powers evolve so he can absorb powers from farther away?

Osiris
7th December 06, 08:37 PM
His range hasn't ever been tested. Thats the most logical solution. What elements are there?

A. An exploding guy.
B. Peter exploding.
C. Peters ability to absorb powers.

This COULD be a misdirection, but as is, it aint rocket science.

Jessica shoots up DL. He's hit once. Fights back, the kid is hurt and Nicky turns herself into the police. Hiro meets Isaac. Claire and Peter meet. Claire's father has everyone who knows about her mind wiped. The haitian comes for her, but double crosses the father, asking if she can keep a secret. The cute chick with Claire's father goes to kill Sylar. Alone. She gets her ass beat and is about to get brain snatched when she blows her head off. Peter has a vision of the future where he realizes that HE causes the explosion in NYC.

Oh, forgot to mention that George Takei will be playing Hiro's dad.

Go Sulu!

http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.tvsquad.com/media/2006/11/takei.jpgSuperman had Jor-El. Batman has Wayne Manor. And now Hiro Nakamura has Captain Sulu.

Figuring all great Heroes need to have come from somewhere, the hit NBC series has tapped Star Trek icon George Takei to play the father of Hiro Nakamura, the plucky Japanese office worker who happens to be able to bend the space-time continuum.

E! Online's Kristin Veitch reported Monday that a new character "who has been around a lot longer" was joining the serialized drama, which has become one of the few solid new hits of the 2006 television season, attracting more than 14.4 million viewers a week. (For more Heroes scoop, including more about the show's mysterious killer Sylar, check out E! Online TV columnist Kristin Veitch's blog.)

"This is absolutely brilliant," Masi Oka, who plays Hiro, told TV Guide. "Hiro's father is this big honcho who shows up in America with his bodyguard. He has this whole elaborate scheme to kidnap his son and take him back to Japan."

Which probably won't go over too well with Hiro, who, after traveling five weeks into the future just in time to see New York go boom, has journeyed to the States to save the world.

"I just hope I get to say, 'Dad! Sulu is my hero, not you!' The sci-fi fans would love it!" Oka said.

Takei, 69, a cult figure among Trekkies and currently the unlikely official voice of The Howard Stern Show, will show up on Heroes in a Jan. 29 cliffhanger episode.

"It was just one of those lightning-bolt ideas," series creator Tim Kring told TV Guide.

After his steady gig piloting the starship Enterprise came to an end after 1991's Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, Takei busied himself with a host of voiceover work in TV, films and videogames and guest spots on shows ranging from The Simpsons and Malcolm in the Middle to Scrubs and Will & Grace.

In fact, it was Takei's trademark deep voice and flair for enunciation that made him a favorite on The Howard Stern Show back when the morning shock-jock was still on terrestrial radio. After a few engaging interviews that proved just how open-minded Takei's sense of humor is, he was tapped to be the show's announcer when it made the jump to Sirius Satellite Radio.

Well that makes Peter about a billion times more powerful: he can call up people's powers at will with a little training.

Maybe he'll get to seriously throwdown with Syler after all.

Seriously, this makes him like the Ubber Mench to end all. He doesn't even have to hurt any one, just be near them for a little while.

So, right here's what Peter can do:

Fly
Regenerate from death
Turn invisible
Stop time
Teleport
See and record the future
Read minds
Nuetralize powers
Anything Syler can do

What. The. Fuck.

Theory based on last Monday. Nathan gets killed by Syler. Peter gets pissed, but thinking about Claire stops him from going nuclear (save the cheerleader save the world; this was in reference to peter saving her from Syler).

Question?
How come Syler didn't die from getting shot and falling off the building? He didn't get Claire's healing factor.

AAAhmed46
7th February 07, 11:57 AM
I have a feeling that OTHER THEN the immoratlity desire Syler has, another reason he wants to go after Claire is so he can go nuclear while getting put back together.

20th February 07, 11:27 AM
Yeah, it's all coming to pass, Peter is going to be fucking unstoppable.

Stan Lee showing up, that was great.

I have to say, Mr. Bennet really impresses me- the actor and the character- I mean I actually got a little teary eyed when he was like begging Clare for forgiveness in the hallways. He really does think what he's doing is for the best, that he's a good guy- hell in some ways he really is.

It's sad that Ando's gone.

So we figure Hiro can now sort of selectivly reverse time too? What the hell was that? If he'd reversed time all together, it would've just gone back to the second before they got shot and they'd be shot only a moment later, the cops wouldn't have made it. However, if he'd simply reversed time, why would she recoil as the the bullet had slammed back into the gun? How odd.

Maybe Stan Lee did it.

Also, Parkman really needs to read some comic books or scifi or something, cause seriously.... he can read people's minds and he can't figure out how t truly exploit that power in business or- fuck he could just go play poker professionally. Professor X is not impressed.

mrblackmagic
20th February 07, 12:40 PM
I didn't realize how crazy Syler really was until last night. He heard the woman complaining about how much of a pain the ass her powers were and he still took them. It's going to bite him in the ass within the next three episodes. No, two and in the finale.

Stick
20th February 07, 02:10 PM
Yeah, it seems Syler's too greedy for his own good. He's taking powers just to take them, without regard for what effect they may have on him or how they could interact. He's gonna OD.

It's gearing up nicely with Peter swiftly becoming a match for Sylar. Should be a great fight.

Now that I think about it, it will be a great fight.

Hrrmmm. Yes, interesting indeed.

They share only one power (unless there will be the ultimate pwnage having Peter have all of Sylar's powers that he had when they ran into each other at the highschool).

Peter's powers:

Flight, precognition (expressed through paintings and drawings), time manipulation, regeneration, telepathy, invisibility, and telekinesis.

Sylar's powers:

Telekinesis, eidetic memory, molecular manipulation, freezing, superhuman durability, and enhanced hearing.

This filled in a few gaps about Sylar for me:


Original power

When Sylar first meets Chandra Suresh six months prior to the series' starting point, he describes having intuitive aptitude, the ability to "know when things are broken, and how to fix them." This is the ability to see and manipulate patterns within complex systems made him an expert watchmaker, as he could discern any problems with any given watch almost instantly. Upon meeting Brian Davis and learning of his telekinetic abilities, he was able to see the genetic difference in Davis. He promised to "fix" what Davis perceived as a problem and killed him.

Acquired powers

After killing Davis, Sylar acquired his telekinetic powers. Bennet mentions that Sylar's powers are a product of using foreign DNA to alter his own, but the mechanism behind this change remains unshown in the television series. According to an interview with Heroes writer Bryan Fuller, "[Sylar] kills people and eats their brains and [...] digests their powers," but this wasn't stated in the series because it seemed "silly" and zombie-like. Bennet confirms that Sylar has gained multiple powers by mixing other people's DNA with his own.

In the six months since he acquired telekinesis, Sylar has become far more proficient than Brian Davis was when he demonstrated his abilities to Sylar. Sylar was able to fling Claire Bennet several feet horizontally into a wall with enough force to break her arm and severely lacerate her face, yet he has enough control over his power to smoothly cut open the skulls of his victims. Despite the number of powers he has at his disposal, Sylar is usually shown using telekinesis during the TV series. When tested by Bennet's associate, Hank, Sylar shows no overt signs of any power besides telekinesis.

Other powers

The freezing abilities referenced in "Don't Look Back" and Charlie Andrews' eidetic memory have been confirmed. With his freezing powers, he is able to freeze human beings solid, leaving their bodies in a very fragile, icy state. He can also create a layer of frost on flat surfaces, making them too slippery for vehicles such as cars to drive on safely. Though it didn't seem to "kick in" very fast, Charlie's superhuman memory has also prevented Sylar from forgetting information.

Sylar posesses some sort of superhuman durability. These include the ability to walk away from a fall that crippled Peter in "Homecoming", claims that Eden's gun wouldn't kill him in "Fallout", and the ability to run away after being shot by several bullets and being propelled backwards with enough force to leave a significant dent in what appeared to be a stainless steel refrigerator. In the Heroes graphic novel Road Kill his skin seems to slowly regenerate after the bullets are taken out.

More recently, Sylar has stolen Zane Taylor's power to quickly liquefy objects into pools of fluid. Both Taylor and Sylar recommended that others stand back when they use this ability. In "Unexpected", Sylar kills Dale, a woman who had superhuman hearing. Before he does so, Dale asks him why she didn't hear any footsteps, and Sylar responds with "That's because there weren't any" (alluding to being able to levitate using the telekinesis). After he acquires Dale's power, however, he cannot control it. Thus, every sound becomes much louder, and he has painful headaches just as Dale did before she learned to control it.

So he alters his DNA using his telekinesis and his ability to fix things (kinda like Niki's kid, but with organics)??? Now that's impressive.

I always thought Sylar used his Telekinesis to ward off damage. Silly me.

Os3y3ris (10:37:04 PM): so wtf was the deal with bennet anyways? i didnt get the ending
Tenshi Risu (10:38:22 PM): he told his superiors that the Haitian ahd been wiping his memory for months and keeping Clair's abilities secret from him, on the trip to turn Clair over to his superiors he entrusted her to the Haitian's care, had him shoot him in the torso but not a major organ, and had him take the memory of the last like day or two
Os3y3ris (10:39:07 PM): so why did the haitian shoot him at that spot?
Tenshi Risu (10:40:26 PM): it wasn't an organ. Bennet set it up, he helped Clair and the Haitian escape from the organization he worked for, and the only way to do that and still save his wife and son was to make it appear that he had nothing to do with it
Os3y3ris (10:40:44 PM): no, that location
Os3y3ris (10:41:13 PM): why'd he drive him to the same bridge? just symbolism?
Tenshi Risu (10:41:48 PM): I'm guessing because it's on the way between his house and wherever the facility is, chances are wen he shot what-his-face they were going to or from the same facility
Os3y3ris (10:42:09 PM): heh
Tenshi Risu (10:42:09 PM): bridges are just a good place to ambush someone
Os3y3ris (10:42:30 PM): that makes sense i guess
Tenshi Risu (10:42:26 PM): they have no where to go but back or forward and that's sometimes difficult
Os3y3ris (10:43:17 PM): anyways, i like that they're actually moving the story at a good clip
Tenshi Risu (10:43:30 PM): yeah, it's great that this story like, well, advances
Os3y3ris (10:43:46 PM): who's bennet? now we know all the details on that. they can add a little more, but not much
Tenshi Risu (10:43:48 PM): for a while I was afraid this was gonna be like lost, be nothing but a bunch of red herrings and crap
Os3y3ris (10:44:01 PM): radioactive man's story is up and he's been blown up.
Os3y3ris (10:44:14 PM): claire is now on the run. GREAT DEVELOPMENT.
Tenshi Risu (10:44:19 PM): yup
Tenshi Risu (10:44:37 PM): and Parkman as Bennet's new partner- fucking awesome
Os3y3ris (10:44:49 PM): yeh
Os3y3ris (10:45:07 PM): why do they both smack of the 70s though
Tenshi Risu (10:45:12 PM): parkman and bennet?
Os3y3ris (10:45:20 PM): yeh
Os3y3ris (10:45:27 PM): dont they?
Tenshi Risu (10:45:41 PM): Bennet: hair, age, glasses. Parkman: overweight cop, all he's missing is the moustache
Tenshi Risu (10:46:24 PM): oh, and Parkman's wardrobe, it sucks
Os3y3ris (10:46:42 PM): thats the main element i think. jesus
Tenshi Risu (10:46:42 PM): I wouldn't be surprised if he wore a leisure suit or members only jacket
Os3y3ris (10:46:57 PM): im telling you, 70s
Tenshi Risu (10:47:05 PM): he didn't look so bad in his suit as a body guard
Os3y3ris (10:47:25 PM): lol
Tenshi Risu (10:47:46 PM): oh, and fuck niki/jessica- we've learned something for a certainty tonight; episodes where Nikki/Jess don't show up are fucking awesome
Os3y3ris (10:48:00 PM): yeh, they're annoying
Os3y3ris (10:48:12 PM): not terribly so, but enough so i dont miss themOs3y3ris (10:48:19 PM): in fact, that whole arch sucks ass
Os3y3ris (10:48:21 PM): DL?
Os3y3ris (10:48:28 PM): just for having that name...
Tenshi Risu (10:48:54 PM): I like her son, I think there's potential there if his mom is written off and he wants to like avenge her or something, but god I can't stand her attempts at acting out a multiple personality
Tenshi Risu (10:49:10 PM): yeah, both of his parents should die
Tenshi Risu (10:49:22 PM): DL's not as bad as his wife, but he's not all that great either
Os3y3ris (10:50:01 PM): the son i dont really like. he's too much an idiot and a tad too cocky
Tenshi Risu (10:50:07 PM): oh, and something I totally forgot about- we all compiled a list of Peter's powers now that we know he's... well, god. We forgot his encounter with Future Hiro; Peter can freeze time, travel through time, teleport
Os3y3ris (10:50:13 PM): how does he not realize his mother is batshit insane?

Tenshi Risu (10:50:56 PM): yeah, but I bet she hulk could act

Os3y3ris (10:51:07 PM): his dad
Tenshi Risu (10:51:28 PM): yeah, he doesn't want to admit it
Os3y3ris (10:51:47 PM): dude, c'mon, his reaction is WAY understated
Tenshi Risu (10:52:13 PM): it may also be that they didn't hit the jackpot on the child actor pot luck
Os3y3ris (10:52:29 PM): also possible
Os3y3ris (10:52:41 PM): he seems WAY nonchalant
Tenshi Risu (10:52:44 PM): yeah

Tenshi Risu (10:53:56 PM): all 3 should meet sylar

Not to be a prick but I mentioned that one earlier:


Peter's powers:

Flight, precognition (expressed through paintings and drawings), time manipulation, regeneration, telepathy, invisibility, and telekinesis.

BTW, 7% killed on my first try without knowing what the hell I was doing. Pure luck.

Steve

I am.

All I know is that he is:


Described as a man with "real power" by his underlings

I wonder what this "real power" is. Whether it is power in a head of an organization sense or if it means that he has a special power too.

Judging by Claire being born of two people that have powers, I imagine the latter is the case.

Yes, you do.

Peter will live due to his exposure to Claire's power, but Sylar will now have Claire's healing power too.Claire couldn't regenerate with the stick in her brain. I doubt Peter will lose his brain, and that seems to be where Sylar gets his power from.

IGN-TV rated the first episode of Painkiller Jane a 3.5 out of 10. (http://tv.ign.com/articles/779/779781p1.html)


Painkiller Jane is simply clunky. The dialogue is extremely silly, and filled with forced tough guy banter. Jane is given to make proclamations like, "You said you wanna play by the rules. It looks like they've just been broken!" McBride's team is filled with a generic group of cliché types, including the computer geek (Sean O. Roberts), who gets to say stuff like, "There's a sub-encrypted firewall, like nothing I've ever seen before. Man, these guys are good… but not good enough." In addition, there are a lot of awkward moments throughout the pilot, such as Maureen's first glimpse of Connor (Noah Danby) during the drug bust that opens the show. Okay, fine, she's attracted to him, but the way she overtly smiles and nodes to him right in the midst of a gun wielding chase is pretty laughable.

The tall and beautiful Loken, best known for Terminator 3, is a striking presence, but she's also a fairly wooden performer. While she's certainly not helped by lines like, "I called it the Emerald City, partially because it was green," Loken, who narrates the story, gives a lot of stilted line deliveries. Jane as a character also feels like a bunch of stock tough girl traits that fail to resonate. We're told that she lost her mother at a young age and learned to live with the pain (get it?) and that she's the requisite character who's not a "by the book kind of girl" and thinks "outside the box," but she fails to register as a genuine person or hero worth rooting for.

The rest of the cast is serviceable, but the entire enterprise feels like one of SCI FI Channel's silly TV movies - there was actually a Painkiller Jane SCI FI Movie a couple of years ago with a different cast -- and not up to the level of their fun series like the Stargate shows, much less something great like Battlestar Galactica. This lifelong comic book fan certainly has nothing against another series about people with super powers being on the air, but when you compare the quality of Painkiller Jane to shows like The 4400 and Heroes, it's lacking in a big way.

Osiris

Huh, I thought the dude that Hiro runs into in the future is the guy that the painter gave his sketch book to... Um, here:


Isaac Mendez, meanwhile, has finished the final issue of 9th Wonders! and is meeting with his usual courier to discuss the importance of getting this manuscript to the publisher and not losing it under any circumstances. When the courier asks why Isaac keeps saying this is the final issue of 9th Wonders!, Isaac does not answer, but instead asks for the courier's promise not to reveal that this will be the last issue. He also gives the courier his sketch book as a personal gift.

But then the Wiki article goes on to say that it's Hiro.

You know what the funny thing about deja vu is? The more you try to avoid it the more you end up fufilling it. The bomb will happen because their trying to stop it. How tragic is that?

I think I solved the explosion riddle, but their are still some holes in it. Sylar gets ahold of Candice's power and makes Peter see something that triggers it. That's why Simone who is dead was there and everybody else was in their idealized clothes.

I didn't like Sylars character development. As it was, he was an insane monster. Then they humanized him. IMO that was the best character. Showed he had a purpose and a mission as opposed to being a mindless killing machine. However, they didn't go so far as to make him particularly sympathetic. He was still a major asshole and a clear, irredeemable villain. To then just randomly go "ZOMG T3H EVIL!!!11" after all that is a lame cop out. Can we have a completely villainous villain without excessive evil or a lame antihero angle? Just someone with a really shitty agenda?

Nathan and Peter's mom needs to get smacked in the face. What a bitch.

Heh, Claire with a Colt 1911. Imagine like 2 season from now she carries like a pair of customized 1911's at the small of her back wherever she goes. Well, maybe not, that gun looked kinda big for her dainty little hands.

As for Sylar.... that was kind of fucked up. I just had a hard time believing him being all that upset with the idea that he'd kill half the city. All the stuff with his mom was actually really well done, I just, that first scene where he calls Mohinder and is all scared just didn't sit right. After he killed his own mother, I think he realized rather quickly what he'd done and it just put him right back into "fucking kill you" mode, so when he snapped at Hiro tht didn't seem out of place or anything.

Also, Hiro is a fucking pussy. It took Ando letting Hiro know that he, Hiro's best friend, would die to get Hiro to go in there, and even then with time stopped and everything he fuckign lost his nerve and let time snap back. Twit.

I don't really see how Petter can't fucking end Sylar now. Peter has the regenerative powers from Claire and Ted's ability to generate like nuclear blasts- assuming he can control it- how can he not just fry Sylar like a kitten in a microwave?

Ugh, whatever.

Heroes: Origins is an upcoming American science fiction drama television series. It is a spinoff of NBC's hit show Heroes. Heroes: Origins will introduce one new Hero per episode, and viewers will choose which Hero will join the main cast at the end of the run. The second season of Heroes and the first season of Heroes: Origins will include a total of 30 episodes.

The reason given for the spin-off was to remove the mid-season hiatus, which caused the ratings to falter when Heroes returned in Season 1. "We've got something I call the 'bulk-up challenge' for next year, which is trying to stay more consistent in our scheduling for the audience," NBC chief Kevin Reilly told reporters Monday (5/14) at a press conference announcing the network's 2007-08 schedule. "We asked ['Heroes' creator] Tim Kring to come up with an idea, and what I love is not only did we bulk up with 30 hours next season, but also a whole new idea which I think is going to take the show to the next level." While not all scheduling details have been hashed out, Reilly says, "I'll tell you one thing you won't see is 'Origins' peppered throughout, I think that would be difficult for the audience to navigate."

He made a pretty good manipulative villain of sorts. He didnt seem entirely bad, just very misguided. I still hope we hear the back story to him, the Petrellis, and Hiro's dad.

I couldnt quite figure out why he didnt just fly either. Maybe he can only use one power at a time? Or maybe Peter's other power is to conveniently forget what other powers he has in order to make a dramatic ending possible. Sort of like how Sylar conveniently stood there and let Hiro kill him when just moments ago he stopped bullets in the air.

As your Hero increases in levels , he will be able to Absorb any other Heroes power (NOTE!! Your Hero may only ever have access to 4 powers at any one time, regardless of how many powers he/she/it knows) . It should also be noted that some powers your Hero gains are in essence, upgrades to existing powers . We leave it to the player to work out what they are.

Aye, in this Monday's episode Kensei was 'killed' but came back to life, so clearly he has some Claire type powers in him. So that storyline will run into Hiro becoming a badass. Maybe not as badass as Future Peter, but badass on a far superior level.

T3hJudoChop

http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20158840,00.html

The good stuff:

THE WORLD-SAVING STAKES SHOULD HAVE BEEN ESTABLISHED SOONER The premonition of nuclear apocalypse created a larger context that unified every story line last season. Kring now sees that Volume 2 (the first 11 episodes of season 2) would have been better served if Peter's vision of viral Armageddon had appeared in the season premiere rather than episode 7. ''We took too long to get to the big-picture story,'' he says.

THE ROOKIES DIDN'T GREET THEMSELVES PROPERLY New Heroes Monica (Dana Davis), Maya (Dania Ramirez), and Alejandro (Shalim Ortiz) ''shouldn't have been introduced in separate story lines that felt unattached to the show. The way we introduced Elle (Kristen Bell) — by weaving her in via Peter's story line — is a more logical way to bring new characters into the show.'' (That said, Kring says a few newbies won't make it beyond this second volume, which wraps Dec. 3.)

HIRO WAS IN JAPAN WAY TOO LONG Hiro's (Masi Oka) time-bending adventure in 17th-century Japan — where he mentored samurai hero Takezo Kensei (David Anders) — finally came to an end on Nov. 5. But Kring says it ''should have [lasted] three episodes. We didn't give the audience enough story to justify the time we allotted it.''

YOUNG LOVE STINKS Kring regrets sticking Claire (Hayden Panettiere) with a super-dud boyfriend and forcing Hiro to moon over a cutesy princess. ''I've seen more convincing romances on TV,'' he admits. ''In retrospect, I don't think romance is a natural fit for us.''

Yet while Heroes has finally found some dramatic traction, this second volume is pretty much a wash. The Dec. 3 episode has been retooled to function as a potential season finale — a move inspired by the writers' strike and a desire to give the show ''a clean slate'' when it goes back into production for Volume 3. At that point, Kring wants to craft a rebooted Heroes that can attract new fans and win back those who've tuned out: ''The message is that we've heard the complaints — and we're doing something about it.''

He may be tempted, but ultimately, his character make-up (he is a cop, hates his father) will prevent him from doing so.

Definition of anti-hero: A main character (read, protagonist, would be hero in this case) in a dramatic or narrative work who is characterized by a lack of traditional heroic qualities, such as idealism or courage. Examples: Punisher, wolverine, deadpool, the Hulk. The non-conventional, hero by default in the comic book world.

Sylar isn't an anti-hero because he's one of the central antagonists. He's evil, and the story doesn't revolve around him so much as it revolves around the good guys.

Maybe anti hero is not the title for him. Maybe he is Peter's juxtaposition, Peter is good, and in reflection gets abilities without action. Sylar, just the same, except he has to kill, i.e. be evil.
