Who else is loving this show? At first I thought it would be a corny superhero show, but the having Sylar really makes it interesting to watch.

Hiro has to be my favorite character. Both because he provides comic relief, and because the ability to manipulate the space-time continuum is just pawnage.

I like it because they don't show the powers toooo tough it's more of a display of aflaunt know what I mean but personally I like peter he's so bent on helping people that he is willing to die for someone he doesn't even know and I thought it was hilarious when the cop tried to read his thoughts, oh and do you read the online comic?

Wait, is this the network television show put on by NBC, where you have individuals who go out and try to change the world or something? Or am I completely clueless here?

a little of column A and a little of column B, but it is on NBC but the show is about the theory of evolution and the fact that a select few have the powers and then on top of that one of them goes forward in time and then finds out that they can change the future but they have to get together and over come there own problems in there lives. The new season starts the 22 of this month.

No, it's live action. As I said, it isn't a plain old Superhero show. It actually has character development.

And the fact that there is actually a superhero serial killer makes it interesting as well.

Where's the comic?

Man, this show makes me glad I have the internet XD it is sooo unbelievably good. It's like they turned X-Men live action and managed to not f*ck it up 0_0

Here is a brief run-down of who's who in the show:

Peter Petrelli - The kinda main character, his power is that he can use other people's powers when he is in close proximity to them, basically Mimic from X-Men. He is the first person to get really excited about his powers and try to find others like him. Initially he thought he could fly, and tried to jump off a roof, forcing his brother to reveal his powers to save him. Peter seems to be the link between all the other characters.

Nathan Petrelli - Peter's brother, who is running for Congress. In fear that the revelation of their powers would destroy his political career, Nathan convinces Peter to pretend he is simply insane to cover for his recent weird behaviour. Nathan has completely shunned his powers of flight and is concentrating on his career.

Claire Bennet - The other 'main' character of the show. Claire is invulnerable, a lá Wolverine. She has even been killed and had an autopsy performed on her, but still managed to regenerate her cells back to life. The main plot revolves around saving her life to stop the end of the world, through some unknown reason or sequence of events. Peter, Hiro, Isaac and Claire's father are all individually trying to save her life to various degrees of success.

Mr. Bennet - Claire's adoptive father who works for an unnamed organization dealing with the abduction of people with superhuman abilities. It is unknown yet what his true intentions are, but he knows about Claire's powers.

Working with Mr Bennet is a woman with the ability of persuasion, and a man who has the ability to block other's abilities when in close proximity with them.

Isaac Mendez - A junkie artist who can predict the future through painting whilst in a usually drug-induced trance. He is now working with Mr Bennet to try to draw the future sober.

Hiro Nakamura - A Japanese man with the ability to manipulate the space-time continuum, able to jump into the past, future and various physical places. He is currently in America with his friend Ando to try to save Claire, after having read a comic written by Isaac in the future detailing Hiro's destiny. Also, a future version of Hiro came back to the present to tell Peter that he had to save the Claire. (I love twists like this XD!). Hiro hasn't managed to control his powers yet, and has to concentrate very hard just to do anything. He seems to be able to stop time efficiently, but when trying to jump in time he tends to overshoot his mark and go too far.

DL Hawkins - An escaped criminal who was set up by his wife's alter-ego. He has the power to phase through things and people.

Niki Sanders - The wife of DL, her 'power' is the strangest of them all. She has a split-personality which claims to be her dead sister Jessica. When in 'Jessica-mode', Niki seems to have the abilities to do whatever she desires - confidence, charisma and seemingly superhuman strength. Jessica has murdered, stole and set up DL to get her own way.

Micah Sanders - Son of DL and Niki, Micah has some unknown power, presumably to repair machines. So far it has only been used to temporarily repair an out-of-order pay phone.

Matt Parkman - A police officer with the ability to hear other people's thoughts. He is also having trouble controlling his power, and is currently on the hunt for the mutant Sylar, who is responsible for a variety of murders.

Mohinder Suresh - A genetics professor from India who travels to New York to investigate the death of his father, Chandra. His father was the foremost person on evolution of the human race, and has a list of people who he believes has evolved, included some of those listed above. However, Mohinder, suffering the rejection of his father, refuses to believe his theory, even when meeting some of the "heroes" himself.

Sylar - An insane mutant with the power to understand how things work internally. He previously used his power to repair watchs, but has since discovered he has the ability to absorb other people (like Rogue, only on a permanent basis) and is using this power to steal other's powers. His current target is... Claire!!

There is also a woman who can remember everything in minute detail, and a walking nuclear bomb XD love this show.

The only things I don't get, is that if Sylar kills Claire, couldn't she just regenerate herself and then he'd be back to square one?

No, because if you notice how she heals it'sd only if what she lost is near by and if it's not or something is obstructing the healing proccess, like we don't know like a piece of dirft wood *wink wink, nudge nudge* or possibly the top of her head is gone along with part of the brain she isn't comming back.

Also, another thing. If Peter was near Sylus, and then killed someone, would Peter get their powers? Makes you think.

Oh true. I never thought of that. I'd say a tag team of him and Claire could beat Sylar to a pulp.
