At this point in the countdown it’s getting very difficult for me to decide certain moments over others. At the very end of Volume 2 Adam Monroe was threatening to decimate the entire world with the Shanti Virus, so that he could be the messiah of the next generation and lead them, being as he was immortal. He convinced Peter to join his quest even though it was through a lie, and took a few friends out along the way. When it came down to it though, Hiro arrived to save the day. He took care of Adam by teleporting him out of there, but Peter still had to catch the virus. Right as Monroe dropped the vial, we see it spinning in air, as Nathan and Peter verbally fight, Nathan finally convincing Peter that Adam was evil. Then, commercial break. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happened next. Nerds across America sighed relief when they saw the vial stop in mid-air.
Back to the very first episode of Heroes, Hiro was a man on a mission. He was determined to prove to his friend Ando that he could bend space and time, “Like Spo-ck”. Hiro was depressed by his friend’s disbelief, and on the subway ride home, he was thinking. Concentrating so hard on his power, on New York, that in the next moment he was in New York, in one of the proudest moments on the show. Hiro let out an enthusiastic “Yatta!” in Times Square, bringing his journey only to a begining.
