Mine is Hiro without a doubt! Masi is just an amazing actor and makes me giggle every time he does his little face scrunchies. Also really wanna see more of future Hiro! He's cool! :D

But I also like Hiros sidekick Ando and Mohinder, have a thing for Asians I suppose ;) lol nah but Ando is real fun and Mohinder is a very interesting character even tho he doesn't have a power... well that we know of yet anyway!

In case you don't remember all of their powers:

Mohinder Suresh (father's legacy cab driver)

Hiro Nakamura (space-time mover)

Ando Masahashi (sidekick)

Claire Bennett (invulnerable cheerleader)

Niki Sanders (dark twin)

Peter Petrelli (copycat nurse)

Nathan Petrelli (flying politician)

Isaac Mendez (pre-cog artist)

Matt Parkman (mind reader cop)

D.L. Hawkins (phase-thru criminal)

Micah Sanders (fix-it boy)

Eden McCain (mind control)

Mr Bennett (non?)

Sylar (steal powers)

Hiro is my favorite aswell, he is just so damn cute! His power is also the coolest IMO. Healing yourself, yea ok, could be fun. Flying is alright aswell but bending space and time is just plain cool.

Ronja
December 1st, 2006, 04:59 PM
Yeah he has my fave power aswell! Imagine the things u could do! :D He can teleport himself to right? It's not just a part of the time manipulation thingy?

_WraithQueen_
December 1st, 2006, 05:02 PM
He can manipulate time and space, and so yes he an teleport himself places :P

Ronja
December 1st, 2006, 05:15 PM

Yeah I most definitely want that power! :P *snap* you're in Thailand *snap* you're in Mexico. :D Always been my fave

December 1st, 2006, 05:37 PM
Hehe nah don't stand a chance against the Velociraptor :P

Mind control would be cool too tho! ;)

Anyways characters I've never really liked are Claire and Matt... they're just annoying most of the time, sorry to those who like them!

Also interesting when we got to know more about Sylar and his background, made me understand him a bit more.

_WraithQueen_
December 1st, 2006, 05:51 PM
Aww i like Matt, he has cool powers too. Claire is cute aswell :P

Ronja
December 1st, 2006, 06:07 PM
Nah Matt is so ... lifeless I dunno :S Claire is getting a bit better I have to admit, she's growing on me... but she's not cute :P

Also wanna know more about that black guy.. like ... does he even speak? :S Hmm he's a bit spooky... but I like him!

December 1st, 2006, 07:03 PM
I'm looking forward to 'The Haitian'/Eraser getting an actual name onscreen so I don't have to read "that black guy" anymore. Nothing personal, Ronja, honestly; it just bugs a bit.

My Favourite Character = Niki.

Favorite character : Hiro
Favorite power : Eden's

As much as i like teleporting, controlling people like Eden can have some interesting applications.... :D

As much as I like Hiro, Claire, and Matt....I got to go with Peter. And no, I'm not one of those people who likes him because he's "dreamy," although I'll admit that he did look good in that coat in "Homecoming." I'm not sure what it is exactly that makes me like the character so much but I'm really interested in seeing what happens with him and his power...I read that he
...ends up in a coma after absorbing/mimicking too many powers at once. He also might play a bigger part in the destruction of NY than we may expect, according to the latest issue of TV Guide.

If I really had to pick someone I'd say it would be Peter. But I think the show is more about relationships (pairings, however, not at all in a sexual way) than just single individuals doing their own thing. The Petrelli brothers dynamic is my favourite, followed by Hiro and Ando. I quite like Claire and Zach as well.
None of these characters exist in a vacuum... they are only as interesting as the characters that they interact with.
Niki on her own isn't too crash hot but Niki with Nathan, for instance, works very well.

December 2nd, 2006, 07:11 AM
Fav power: Empathic persuasion using my mind. A cross between Peter + Eden + The Haitian

Fav character: This one's harder unlike Stargate where I have clear preferences. The casting, writing and acting has been spot on for the most part, and characters have stood out at different times with different relationships. Anyhooo... at the moment, it's Masi and HRG for me. Masi lets me embrace my "inner freak" :mckay: and HRG is so complex, sinister yet loving! Bet y'all thought I'd say Peter, eh? Yeah, he appeals to me most for his potential...

Hmmm... Hubby just chimed in to say I'm like Jessica/Niki. Huh. Should I be worried?!

Yep... my favorite 'hero' is Hiro too... :D :p He's just so endearing. :) Not to mention of all the characters, his powers are ones I'd want most of all. His ability to alter space and time, ought to theoretically allow him to fly as well, but If he can ever perfect the teleporting, I guess he wouldn't need to fly. Although, it seems he ought to be able to levitate anything by altering the space-time around it to negate gravity.

theonebluegecko
December 2nd, 2006, 10:04 AM
My favorite hero is Peter.

My favorite hero because of their power is Nathan. His character is not my favorite but I have always wanted to fly. To me that is cooler that bending space and time.

Trek_Girl42
December 2nd, 2006, 11:02 AM
My absolute favourite Hero is Hiro as well- he's so endearing, there's nothing not to like. The great thing about this show, is that there isn't a single character that I don't like. I love that I never have to cringe when "so-and-so" appears on screen, and my order of favourites often changes from episode to episode. :)

Other favourites after Hiro are Peter, Claire, Ando, Mohinder, Matt, and Zack.

NubianQueen
December 2nd, 2006, 06:08 PM
No surprise my favorite hero is Hiro. He is just so awesome. I love this guy.

And of all the powers that I have seen so far, I would love to have the Haitian's power.

He is totally badass and cool.

Everyone seems to like Hiro.

Personally, I'm partial to Matt Parker (only partly because I think Greg Grunberg's such a cutie... I was a big fan of his on Alias). Its a shame the way his character takes a back seat to fan favorites such Hiro and Peter.

Non taken.. you're right... it would be good if he was given a name sometimes soon. "'The Haitian'/Eraser" is that his name in the... graphic novels? Whats his powers there? :D

I used that threat once on a guy.. boy did he grumble and complain but I got my wish at last ;) :P :D

Yeah for me he's not an intersting character atm... with the "normal" family problems and working as a cop. Hopefully he'll meet the others soon and have more comtrol over his powers, so he can become more of a hero ;)

December 3rd, 2006, 11:17 AM
you're right... it would be good if he was given a name sometimes soon. "'The Haitian'/Eraser" is that his name in the... graphic novels?'Haitian' is his name in the official cast list. The exact nature of his power is still a subject of debate.

Claire's dad is actually 'HRG' (for Horned-Rimmed Glasses). By the way, Claire's name is spelt 'Bennet'.

I've only read one of the online comics; the formatting is wonky and hard to deal with.

Oh okay thanks.

Yeah see some sites spell it Bennett and some Bennet... so I don't know which one is right :S I just went with IMDb's version. Same with Mr Bennet instead of HRG

Think everyone gets who I mean anyway ;)

December 5th, 2006, 08:25 AM
I voted Peter. He is an empath in essence I think. That empathy just translates into power mimicing when he is around 'heroes'. Peter's character is just the really good guy that you can't help but root for and I think his power is one of the most interesting. Especially now that he will apparently be Retaining the abilities he absorbs and the new guy on the Jan. 22 ep will apparently start to teach him how to control it. I smell a Sylar ass-kicker!

soooo true.... i like them all, they are normal people caught into something big.
only reason i picked Hiro is the way he accepts his destiny and acts...

that doesnt mean i think any less about any other char in the show... i was acctually really sad when i saw hero X die in 1x11....


i think writers are doing great job getting people to connect to chars in the show.... i don't think any show managed this as well as this one (at this point in it's history)... after just 11 eps we acctually like ALL of them....

there is even something in Sylar to like... there is no black and white here... i think that is the most important thing about this show.

Ronja
December 5th, 2006, 01:33 PM
Uh oh looks like I have to watch 1x11 soon! :eek:

Mhm I agree, I like when things aren't always what they seem and there's always a story behind the characters...


I'm glad someone voted for Mohinder, he's a great character!

THE HAITIAN, lol

He is just so mysterious and uber obsevervant. Only talks when he has too. And he is just too much of a [email protected] to care, cuz he is just cool like that.

Dude the Haitian Rocks, I hope we never get to know his real name, lol. Because "the Haitian" sound so much cooler, I can tell y'all that already, mawahahaha.

I like Ando the best. He's the perfect foil for Hiro's character and I think there's more to Ando than meets the eye. Second best...um, Isaac or Mohinder, I think.

My favorite power would be Nathan's power.

My least favorite character--Nikki. She irritates me intensely!

I voted for HRG, cause he is so cool! I love his character, he isn't really bad, but he isn't really good either. I think he's really interesting, so definatly my favorite.
I like Nathan too, cause he has the same sort of not good but not bad vibe too, but he cheated on his wife, so i like him less.
I think Peter comes in a close second though cause I really like him, followed by Claire, Zack and Mohinder.

I vote DL because how cool is his power. when Nikki/Jessica was shooting him the bullet went right through him and be able to phase out and walk through walls he can also use his power to go through people and most likely pinch off certain veins effectively killing someone. That power would be great when he plays hide and seek lol hide in the walls no matter how hard they tried to find you they couldn't lol...and of course other uses too

As a mere mortal, he gives us 'our' viewpoint on the show!

Also, just interviewed James Kyson Lee on SCI FI PI, so probably a wee bit biased. How can you not love a character that is half way between Dr Watson and, as he puts it, Han Solo!

His character appeals to me in that he's a bit like an underdog, your typical downtrodden guy but with latent courage and a sense of duty. And he seems so nice, especially with Molly. :)

HRG a close second, because despite being a litttttle Dark Side, I really liked his relationship with Claire. Company Man made me cry.

I'm aaaaaaaalmost one of those people. I still like Peter but it's become very annoying. But it's all the writings fault, when Peter shud be Superman without the kryptonite, the writers turned him into a complete whimp and a stupid one at at that, no fun at all :(

But thats just me, I can't stand it when people have powers and don't use them...
