Heroes and Marvel Comics
6 March 2007 | by See all my reviews

In the past few episodes there have been some connections between Heroes and Marvel Comics. Certainly the watchful comic book fan will have caught them, but for the rest of us, here they are:

1. When Hiro got on the bus in Ep #1.16(?), leaving Ando behind, the driver of the bus was none other than Marvel Comics founding father, Stan "The Man" Lee!

2. During this episode (#1.18) we of course were treated to a sneak peek at Marvel's upcoming SPIDER-MAN 3!

3. Two two FBI guards in this episode were named QUESADA and ALONSO ... no doubt after Marvel Comics Managing Editor, Joe Quesada, and another Marvel Comics editor,Axel Alonso.

4. All of Isaac's artwork was actually done by an artist named Tim Sale, who has worked for DC, but is also known at Marvel for his work on SPIDER-MAN BLUE, HULK GREY, and DAREDEVIL YELLOW.

There is also a HEROES graphic novel on NBC.com, and I wouldn't be a bit surprised if we eventually find Marvel Comics collecting the pages and publishing the book.

Interestingly, though, a lot of people compare HEROES to Marvel's X-MEN, and while certain similarities can be spotted, the show perhaps more closely mirrors DC's WATCHMEN - as a story of "real world" superheroes who are being killed as they try to stop the destruction of NYC.
