Can someone explain to me how the writers strike of 2007-2008 prevented the original storyline of shanti virus from getting out and the original season 3 plans, why couldnt they just pick off when season 3 started production again?
What's on your mind?
I remember an episode where Adam was buried alive for a year I think, maybe more or less. How was he able to go on without pooping and peeing. Was that related to his Regenerative Healing Factor?
So if a shot the head is what kills powers similar to Claire & Adam, why did their blood heal a Noah's shot to the head?
Does Claire Bennet's Accelerated Healing Factor require brain signals to function?
This is just another what they should have done post but I think the ending of the original show before reborn came around after the memory of it came up was done a bit sloppy
First off I dont quite get what claire was trying to accomplish with what she did,had she done that decision in season 1 or 2 when her and her family were trying to stay undercover, she'd be more young and naive, okay Id get that but she's an adult now and her arc after finding out who killed her roomate became odd cause it was intertwined with the carnival thing but I didnt get her role and she decides to drag the rest of her kind with her just to make her life easier which wasnt that hard to begin with, had reborn never happened that would have been the ending of a show called heroes, its not that evil won but she completely threw her father's words out the window cause he knew humanity in general would not accept and he was right.
Secondly Im remembering that battle with samuel and peter, it was a good battle but what I didnt like is when they had the carnies teleport away they make it out that samuel was completely powerless which makes no sense, he was near peter, doyle, emma and sylar not to mention shouldnt he have some power of his own, he should have been weaker not completely drained. So while I was expecting him to lose the battle it shouldnt have gone out that way.
And finally doyles defeat and I get sylar wont kill anymore but that might be a case of where they had to do it, I think this is where you call in matt to hypnotize doyle to stop being bad or else cut off his hands or put him in a straight jacket otherwise putting him in a normal prison wont work cause he'd find an escape with his power so that was left as a cliffhanger cause he never shown up in reborn, I hate how we never find out what happened to him.
I also think the episode before that showing how hrg became whom he was, absolutely pointless, i thought company man did it better, it was an unneccesary episode and also ruins the scene of him meeting claude the first time.
Looking back in retrospect I think at most this show should have had 3 seasons, a beginning middle and end, basically it should have had the kirby plaza story then either fugitives or redemption im still conflicted on that and finally end with reborn cause the ultimate reveal of the evos/specials to the world was I guess what the show was going for since the beginning. Cause I didnt pay attention to it at the time, if anything I may have fallen for it but end of the world plots do-not-work, at least not in this type of show, we already know how things will end up in the end based on the title alone therefore why would the audience believe it will end with the world ending, this is supposed to be the smart superhero show, you arent fooling everyone so as much as I enjoyed people like adam monroe and arthur who tried to do such things, well adam did, arthur claims otherwise they werent needed, this was a case where less is more, not to mention had they shortened the series maybe for tims anthology series or whatever the old stars could have come back, more willing i mean cause im under the impression people like milo and zach didnt return in the reboot cause they were tired of those characters.
I mean I could go on all the issues this show had and maybe I will one day not cause I hated the show, I loved the show and this is more of giving out tips, pointing out error in case someone wants to remake the show at some point cause I feel it will happen, maybe 10, 50, 100, 1000 years from now but im 99% sure it will happen, hollywood loves remaking succesful franchises and despite falling over the ledge near the end it was one of the most successful shows ever, probably why nbc let the reboot happen in the first place
This site seems to have been forgotten, or wants to be forgotten. I checked this and compared to the one I've seen and the latter has more detail, no, has all the details ranging from objects, places, houses, and even minor characters.
There are minor characters that should be here, as well as some that should be in the Villains category, well, they did awful stuff and antagonize the main or other minor characters.
While Sylar has his own page with his victims, their should be a page contain the details of deaths of every character, not to mention it should be in chronological order of the episodes they appeared instead alphabetical order like the previous website I saw.
The pages are here are incomplete and there's no personality section for the characters.
If heroes stuck with their original plan do you think the show would have been better, worse or the same quality as we got.
Here are the original alternatives and some is based on the unaired pilot, some on unaired scenes and some on word of mouth
First off in the unaired pilot version we wouldnt have had ted and usutu, we would have had amid be the nuclear man and he would have been an ex terrorist who lived with matt for a while, joseph would be the character that actor played instead of usutu, he would be a terrorist leader who wanted to use amid.
You had issac cut off his hand instead of shoot heroin into him, i dont know how much that would have had effect other than a bit harder to paint
The perhaps biggest change is we would have gotten paul e sylar, you see him in the unaired version, he is in some hat and suit as opposed to the sylar we got with the baseball cap, jeans and jacket. I cant recall exactly what they were going for with him but I do recall something like he was going to be a mexican priest with criminal ties and the other someone compared to count orlock from nosferatu, i dont know how this version would have done over the sylar we got but it would have been interesting
Next scenario is if the writers strike of 2007 not happened, we would have gotten the exodus chapter which would have been if the shanti virus gotten out and we saw bits and pieces where nathan got sick and fell at the press conference as opposed to shot, we find out through interviews mayas power would have destroyed the virus and killed her in the process as a sacrifice. This is in word of mouth but originally knox and jesse, their powers were ice and seismic powers, the seismic one is pretty similar to jesses power we see anyway except his comes from his mouth, knox would totally have been different and basically tracys power and imo not as interesting as getting strength from fear
Next scenario is had they gone the anthology route with a different team each season and Id be inclined to think that is maybe what they were setting up for with angelas dream in season 3 cause it was to be included in the original season 2, where all the major heroes die off and the villians take over
Last scenario is had heroes gotten season 5 which was esentially reborn but what I mean is actual season 5 shortly after season 4, not some reboot 5 years after the show ended, meaning claire, peter, sylar and other missing faces would have been there to deal with this world that knows of the supers and we do kind of have an idea what happened next but not in the exact way it was originally intended. I for one think we wouldnt have had as many new characters
But im curious to hear your thoughts

Except of ones that inherited the Same abilities as their parent such as Matt Parkman and Murray Parkman or like Sylar and Samson Gray
If you can pick any ability from the heroes universe if you can only have one what would it be and why
Who else fell in love or horrified of Bell getting bullet to one of her beautiful legs while wearing short shorts? As well as getting killed later on?
