Fans are eagerly anticipating the return of ‘Heroes’ to NBC in the form of ‘Heroes: Reborn,’ and whether the continuation of the series will still be the same train-wreck that was Season 2-4 of the original show or rise to new heights is yet to be determined. Regardless, I am sure there will be a lot of viewers coming back to see what is going on in the world of ‘Heroes,’ and to catch up with some of their favorite characters from the original series. In the featurette below, we learn what HRG (for newcomers, he got that nickname for being the man with the “Horn Rimmed Glasses”) aka Noah Bennet (played by Jack Coleman) is up to these days, and it seems quite a lot has happened to him. He was somehow involved in the tragedy in Odessa Texas (and rumor has it his daughter Claire is now dead), but he seems to have lost the memory of that day, most likely due to interference from his old friend, the Haitian (who we see at the end of the featurette). For now HRG is working in Austin, Texas as a used car salesman, which is apparently a job he had long before Primatech and his days of bagging and tagging those with powers. The story for him seems to pick up when a “Hero” conspiracy theorist approaches him, demanding information about what happened in Odessa, pulling HRG back into the world he once helped to keep in check. Whereas in the original series HRG always seemed to be one step ahead of everyone else, in this series it seems more like he will be more trying to catch up to everything going on around him, which will make for an interesting arc for the character. What do you think? Will ‘Heroes: Reborn’ help fix the tarnished legacy of the series? Will HRG still be an important player now that he has lost his daughter and has been reduced to the ordinary job of used car salesman? Share your thoughts in the comments below! ‘Heroes Reborn’ will air Thursdays on NBC with a 2 hour premiere on September 24 at 8pm.

A Southern California native (which seems to be a rarity as everyone seems to migrate here from outside the state, and everyone else born here ends up leaving for less crowded spaces), but for Nick, he loves it here. Nick has been writing since he was a teenager, self-published his first book trilogy, 'The Legacy of the Roras' back in 2011, and in 2014 published the inaugural issue of his first comic book, 'The Shadow of Aquaterra.' While not working on my own projects, he is working as a technical film editor at a major television network in their digital media division and recently began writing news and recap articles for ScienceFiction.com, a position which he has found extremely rewarding.
