Heroes is a science-fiction drama series that follows the stories of several people who are developing inexplicable superpowers, possibly the result of a common genetic anomaly. As they explore their new abilities – some eagerly, some less so – their paths cross. The first season saw the characters focused on averting a nuclear explosion predicted to occur in New York City on Wednesday, November 8, 2006, and on stopping the villain Sylar.

Within the scope of Heroes, people have developed and displayed superpowers – usually referred to simply as "special abilities" or "gifts" – for centuries, with no apparent instigating cause. For instance, Takezo Kensei, a 16th century samurai, had the ability to heal from physical wounds, suggesting that these abilities are a long-established aspect of the world.
