One man, known as Sylar, wants to gain all the power of these "heroes" so he can be the most powerful and evolved human of all, and stops at nothing to gruesomley kill these people. In order to protect themselves from him, these people must help one another before Sylar can destroyed them all, while they each deal with problems of their own.
Did You Know?
It was originally intended for Claire's friend Zach eventually to be revealed as gay, and to have his coming out serve as a parallel to Claire's coming to terms with her secret abilities. However, when the manager for Thomas Dekker
(the actor who played Zach) discovered that this development was in store for the character, she first insisted that a line identifying Zach as gay be deleted from a script, and then pulled Dekker from the show altogether. Producer and writer Bryan Fuller
gave an interview in April 2007 in which he explained that Dekker "was up for the John Connor role in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles
(2008) and [the manager] didn't want him playing a gay character because it might affect Fox's interest in hiring him. It got really ugly." Fuller also said that through Zach's last appearances on the show, "in all of our minds, the character was still gay but we couldn't say it explicitly." Several lines remain in the series in which other characters refer to Zach as gay, but it remains ambiguous as to whether they know something the audience doesn't, or are simply making derogatory insinuations.
