Fandom: Heroes
by ScribeWraith (scribewraith)

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.

It was because there were already so many links that I thought it'd be worth it - I kind of like watching the fandoms grow! (I do the Supernatural guide as well)

paire_love is a much more active Peter/Claire comm than the one you have listed, and heroes_claude is a comm for (you guessed it) Claude. Also, there's heroes_sylar and mr_bennet, which are fairly self explanitory, methinks. :-)

And oops, you already had paire_love, my eye just somehow skipped over it! *sheepish grin* But the other links are still good. :-)

I made a ginormous list of Heroes Communities on LJ if you want to take a look at it. I just finished it today, so it's fairly current. I didn't include RPGs however.

Also, 100_wonders. It's similar to heroes100words, except that it's just for the Peter and Nathan.

Heroes - Ordinary People

Yes it does.

But when I first said that I couldn't do this anymore, no one put there hand up to take it over and I thought it would be better to leave it up as it was.

Do you want to do it?

heroes » peter perfects petrelli angst

If you're still looking for someone to take over maintainership of the guide, I'd be happy to help. I actually started working on one before I finally found this one, so it wouldn't be any trouble.

Heroes - Peter

I would love it if you wanted to take it over - it probably needs a major update but I could email you the code and we could see if we can get you posting access or you could send me the code and I can post it.

I hate that it's not updated regularly but I haven't been able to do it for a long while *pout*
