A select number of unsuspecting people awake to find they have developed superpowers overnight. They become reluctant superheroes with unique powers, from regeneration to mind control, charged with saving the world. Heroes takes the comic book format and seamlessly incorporates it into a live action TV series.
A great show that took a slight tumble in later seasons, Heroes is a great superhero show. Telling the narrative of multiple heroes at a time, the show creates some very exciting heroes and villains. The first season was insanely popular.
