People all over the U.S start to realize they have special abilities, like telekinesis, healing abilities, flying powers, time travel, invisibility, and the ability to absorb other's abilities. One man, known as Sylar, wants to gain all the power of these "heroes" so he can be the most powerful and evolved human of all, and stops at nothing to gruesomely kill these people. In order to protect themselves from him, these people must help one another before Sylar can destroy them all, while they each deal with problems of their own. Written by

Did You Know?
This series' premise (normal humans begin developing superpowers due to a new genetic mutation) is remarkably similar to that of Marvel Comics' long-running series "X-Men". Stan Lee
, co-creator of "X-Men", makes a cameo in season one, episode sixteen, "Unexpected", and Ray Park
, who played Toad in X-Men
(2000), played season four recurring character Edgar. Also, in one episode, the character of Micah receives a set of classic Marvel comics (Silver Surfer, Incredible Hulk, et cetera). In another, Hiro and Ando visit a comics store and Hiro mentions several Marvel characters such as Spider-Man. See more
