Fandom: Heroes

Heroes is an emerging fandom for the new series showing on Mondays on NBC.

"The human genome project has discovered that tiny variations in Man's genetic code are taking place at increasingly rapid rates. Teleportation, Levitation, Tissue Regeneration. Is this outside the realm of possibility? Or is Man entering a new gateway to evolution? Is he finally standing at the threshold to true human potential?"

Heroes is a story about people who slowly discover that they have genetically based super powers. This group of people will become important to the future of the planet and change the way the world is.

The show draws heavily on comic book mythologies and styles presenting a story that draws on ideas like The X-Men or Rising Stars. It has a solid ensemble cast including Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls), Greg Grunberg (Alias) and Ali Larter (Final Destination). Created by Tim Kring (Crossing Jordan) and drawing writers like Jeph Loeb (Smallville, Batman:The Long Halloween) and Bryan Fuller (ST:V, ST:DS9, Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls), Heroes is a mix of drama and genre. Tim Sale (Batman: The Long Halloween) is heavily involved in illustration for the series.

As the show, and fandom, is taking its first steps there isn't a crack_van outline yet, so the best place to get a rundown is to look at some of the external links listed. ninth_wonders is a good rundown of what's happening in the fandom everyday.
