Heroes: Part 2, The Revengeance

Heroes is back! And thankfully we are now in the second season, which means no more tedious character introductions and explanations of the world's workings. Except for all the tedious introductions of new characters, that is.

The new season begins four months after the conclusion of last season, with an episode aptly titled "Four Months Later". Some new characters introduced:

Apparently there was not enough teen angst last season, so the show introduces us to West, a boy that Claire meets at her new school.

West is creepy and likes to judge people.

Mirroring current events, the show has also started taking on illegal immigrants.

Maya and Alejandro, a brother and sister pair, are making their way to America. I wonder what a pair of deadly mutants would do for the immigration debate?

Next we have a new face for "The Company", which is apparently still around despite last season's setbacks.

I didn't catch this guy's name, but I'm going to nickname him Midas.

Finally, my personal favorite, new cast member Takezo Kensei, who is... a gaijin?!?

Japanese pride hits a new low.

So, I have to confess that after letting things stew for a few months, I wasn't sure I was going to be excited about Heroes again, but this season opener really pulled me back in. Anyone else feel the same way?

    Some really good questions that the first episode raises:
    Spoiler:

    I might rewatch the episode to see what else I missed. Not much in the way of action here, just a whole lot of mystery and setting up. Ando has a part to play, but what will it be? And where's DL, Niki, and Micah?

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Because of scheduling conflicts I was never able to continuously watch Season one of Heroes, so admittedly I am confused on certain aspects. However it was still enjoyable to watch and understandable within the new seasons own context. I am looking forward to seeing more.

    Sure call him creepy, but if you could fly by the power of will alone, you'd probably be hanging out around the hot chicks bedroom window too.

    Well, I would.

    I'd use it for other stuff too, getting to work without paying for gas and the like.
    But mostly just being a creepy ass flying peeping tom.

    Werner Brandes.


    For some reason the guy who plays Kensei reminds me of Malcolm McDowell.

    Wait, this kid has the same power as Nathan? Thats kind of lazy.

    He appears to have the same power, but really strong telekinesis or gravity manipulation can mimic the flight power pretty easily.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Don't Peter's powers work on him having to think specifically about the person who's power he's trying to mimic?
    Spoiler:

    Probably not, actually.

    In the last season Nikki learned to use the strength by herself. My interpretation is that the split personality ghosting was Jessica's power.

    Really the ghosting/personality splitting is an oddly specific and generally useless power if you think about it.

    Do we have any idea what powers Nathan's Mom and Papa Hiro have/had?

  • ScooterScooter Registered User regular
    edited September 2007
    I seem to remember there being hints that Mom had a similar power to someone else, but less complicated, which was mostly taken as being future-vision without needing to paint.
