"Heroes" web site on NBC

My cousin Neil dropped a reference to the new Heroes TV and noted that on the TV show’s website, there’s a weekly comic version (PDF). Most appropriate!

I’ve enjoyed the first four episodes and actually like the slow pace of revealing just what the heck is going on. What’s going to be the challenge is “What happens after they are self-aware and able to use their powers?” A small comparison: when I was in school, the TV show “The Greatest American Hero” was on. The real charm in that show was the main character learning his new powers (like being told by a kid that to talk off to fly you had to do three big running steps and leap – sure enough, that worked!). Right now in Heroes, it’s wonderful to see their powers and journey begin.

What next?

Hopefully not super-hero angst.
