Heroes Reborn: Animated Character Posters Reveal the Newbies' Powers

Heroes Reborn Cast

The next generation of NBC’s Heroes is already springing into action.

The network has unveiled 11 animated character posters — because still images are for suckers — giving us our first clues as to what some of Heroes Reborn‘s newcomers will bring to the table.

Robbie Kay’s Tommy, for example, is seen releasing some sort of energy from his hand, while Danika Yarosh’s Malina appears to be blowing a less-than-friendly kiss.

In typical Heroes fashion, most of the new characters’ powers remain a mystery, but we expect to know more as the show’s Sept. 24 premiere creeps ever closer.

Browse the new Heroes cast below, then drop a comment: Who are you most excited to see in action?

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Nice. Zachary Levi looks hot and angry. I was hoping more of these would be more telling of their powers, but it looks cool. I need to rewatch the original series. I watched the first season and was an extra at the carnival in the last season, but IDK what happened between all that.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    They’re freakin’ awesome. Hope Tim Kring and his writing staff better not screw us over like it did in Seasons 2-4.

    • Kacey Mcnatt says:

      At that time I think u can blame the writer’s strike as one of the main problems on how that series went. The 1st season was great and then the writer’s strike hit and it all went downhill from there.

      • Mr. Tran K says:

        Yeah right. We know why Heroes was a disappointment is because of that freakin’ writer’s strike they had years ago.

      • Robert says:

        I would agree with you if only the 2nd or maybe even the 3rd season suffered but I cannot use that excuse for the 4th season.

        • Brad says:

          How so? All the episodes were written and filmed before the strike happened. Are you trying to say they purposely wrote crappy 6 months before the strike happened?

          • johnhelvete says:

            I would agree that the writers strike is not an excuse for the lack of interesting or compelling new characters added to season 2, which for me was the main problem after season 1.

      • rinaex says:

        As others have said, the episodes were filmed before the writer’s strike, and that was when the discontent really set in. Season 3 aired as normal in the fall of 2008, so they had plenty of time to make things better, and they didn’t.

        • Glen says:

          Actually the writers had written some of the story for season 2 and only a handful of episodes were filmed prior to the strike.
          They could still film during the strike. Just no more writers, hence the season was cut in half, storylines never fully resolved, characters not fully developed.
          Season 2 was to end with the virus released. Maya was to play a big role in saving the world and Kaitlyn lost in time, well enough said.
          I loved all 4 seasons. Its like having a favorite sports team, they may not always win, but you don’t give up on them, at least true fans don’t.

          • rinaex says:

            The writer’s strike began on November 7th. The last episode for that season aired on December 3rd.

          • Nadia says:

            Just because youre opinionated and prefer some seasons over others doesn’t mean you’re not a true fan. You can be a big fan of Heroes and still not like seasons 2-4, and that has no correlation with how big of a fan you are.

      • isosim says:

        The writer’s strike tanked a lot of shows not only Heroes.

  3. Mark says:

    I want to know if the Molly that Francesca Eastwood is playing is Molly Walker from Seasons 1 and 2, played then by Adair Tishler.

  4. LK says:

    So, they don’t really tell us anything about their powers do they?

  5. therealmollyg says:

    Don’t worry, Comic Con is almost here

  6. AngelWasHere says:

    Ooo this looks promising! :)

  7. A.M says:

    super excited for Zachary Levi and Robbie Kay…

  8. Crystal says:

    Arranged in a slideshow like that, those taglines are unbelievably cheesy.

  9. greysfan says:

    Oh no! Its the Peter Pan guy from Once….not a fan of him. The rest look great though. Can’t wait for Heroes to return.

    • isosim says:

      Of course not because you have the hots for Henry, however he is a fantastic actor who pulled off being Henry being possessed.

  10. Arin says:

    Is there gonna be another impath like Peter, good hearted too.

  11. Arin says:

    Is there going to be another impath like peter, good hearted too.

  12. Michael says:
