“Memories are funny things” is the opening line to our latest and longest look at Heroes Reborn, fresh from San Diego Comic Con. Which seems to be true, because my memory keeps bringing up how after Heroes‘ truly landmark first season things kind of went off the rails and ended up…just a disaster. But wow, that familiar piano theme and a few glimpses of familiar faces later and suddenly I’m looking back at the past through some very rose-colored glasses. Memories are funny things, my friends, but it helps when they’re dosed in a heaping pile of nostalgia and nicely peppered with Hiro Nakamura wielding a sword like the time-shifting badass he is.
Also, by Heroes Reborn they apparently meant Heroes Grown the Hell Up, judging by Micah’s appearance. It’s a shame Peter Petrelli is too busy getting his deformed face blown off on Gotham and Claire Bennett traded her cheerleading outfit for…whatever country music stars wear. Nonetheless, Heroes Reborn premieres September 24. Do try and contain all that excitement.
