After a vague announcement way back in February 2014, NBC’s Heroes has finally made good on its threat to return as the revived Heroes Reborn. No mere teaser, our first full footage sees plenty of heroes on the run, old and familiar faces alike, while the network’s full synopsis teases a major tragedy, and not just that Heroes Reborn is actually happening.
NBC has taken its Heroes Reborn gag impressively far with the crafting of an actual trailer shown at the upfronts (though one that curiously never surfaced online), and now another returning cast member has pledged to the elaborate joke. Prior series star Greg Grunberg will turn his head and squint through NBC’s Heroes Reborn revival, at least until the network decides its ridiculous prank has gone far enough.
As somebody regrettably reminded NBC they’d announced ‘Heroes Reborn’ back in 2014, the rebirth of the once-mighty superhero drama continues powering up for its summer premiere. Enter the first trailer-teaser aired during the Super Bowl, as HRG takes on his most fearsome enemy yet: Chuck Bartowski!

Some heroes don't fade away. They just get canned.
Spinoff Online reported yesterday that NBC was leaning towards ending its superhero drama "Heroes" with a proper final season but now just may pull the plug entirely. Low ratings and low confidence have been plaguing the series for some time now and this might be a bum horse that just needs to be sh
This week saw the release of "Marvel Her-oes," a new comic where writer Grace Randolph and artist Craig Rousseau re-cast the Wasp, She-Hulk, Namora and others as high school students, each of whom is hiding her powers from the others while trying to live a "normal" student life.
I picked it up with this week's stack, and like a lot of readers, I love the comic, but hate the name, which seems to have been created f
