NBC has announced it has ordered another 18-20 episodes Heroes.  While the show has stumbled a bit this season as far as ratings go, it is tied with The Office as the network’s top rated series for the 18-49 crowd.

What do you want to see in season 4?  The introduction of a character with magical powers that turns back time to a point where none of the mutants Heroes exist?  Giant robots programmed by the gov’ment that are released into society to hunt down those mutants Heroes who haven’t registered?  Or maybe the mutants Heroes will have some infighting amongst themselves forcing them to choose sides, which eventually leads to them shooting Sylar into space, who later returns to take down those who did him wrong, but instead a rival alien force invades the planet, thus setting up the bad guys to rule the world?  Eighteen to twenty episodes?  Yeah, I think they could get all that in.

    LOL! The bitterness is strong in this one…

    What happened to the little girl that Matt was looking after? She had the ability to track “mutants” kind of like a human cerebro.

    And wouldn’t Nikki’s little boy, with the ability to control electronics/machines come in handy for Peter and Co.? Perhaps, they don’t want to endanger a minor. I also liked the cousin in New Orleans, who could watch something physcial, and replicate it… kind of like Taskmaster? Right?

    The little girl was adopted.
    Sidenote: Arthur found her and took away her power.

    Micah and the cousin are if you look at the evidence probably working with REBEL:
    Though one of the two could also simply be REBEL: but i dont know if they could organize this kind of resistance alone….Micah is a genius, but i wouldnt be surprised if Claude or the Haitian is involved.

    Thanks for the info. Arthur is Pete and Nathans Dad right?

    Good thought on who REBEL is… I kind of thought it might be the Petrelli’s Mom, and perhaps the Haitian, working together.

    Also when will we see the 3rd sister… Nikki and Freeze Girl (can’t remember her name) are 2 of the 3 triplets, experimented on, by the doctor… ?

    What I really want to now is were is Claire’s old boyfriend, you know the one who could fly?

    @OS Perry: The third sister who is, at least supposed to be, dead was named Jessica. Jessica is also the alter ego of Nikki’s second personality…

    Clair, Matt, Hiro, Ando, and Peter all start trying to be heroes, henceforth known as the good guys. Sylar (because they won’t kill him) becomes a Magneto type character, with basically the same philosophy “We’re better than humans, they want to kill us, so we’ll take them out first.”

    Sylar will be the leader of a ‘brotherhood’ if you will in trying to achieve his goals. Which will attract the attention of our good guys, who must rally and save humanity, again.

    Granted this should have been Season 2, but what do I know.

    Also, a side note: I keep envisioning the Heroes being closer to the JLA, even thought they’re basically X-Men rip offs. Where as any and all bad guys should be more out of the Marvel play book of fighting back against a society that hates and fears them.

    I’d personally like to see a total move away from all the dystopian crap that everything seems to doing lately.

    What do you think, does the 18-20 episodes order (instead of 22-24) reflect the disappointing ratings this season or the “bad economy”?

    Yeah but remember The german genetecist who thought Tracy was someone named Barbera… O_o
    CLONE MADNESS!!!
    And West(flying boy) is probably just living regular life in california..until he is found out dun dun dun.

    @OS Perry
    Yup he is their dad.

    Oh and i want the next season too be about the “good guys” trying to setup the company again. Seeing as how the most effective, responsible and human way to control powers so far seems to be a type of selfcontrol. I dont want them exposed i want to see Claude train young mutants, Matt and HRG track down rogue power abusers and Sylar starting a gang…Knox, Flint and the German had so much promise.

    Supposedly, one of the original group is going to bite it this season. It might be a cop out and be Nikki Strauss and just bring back Ali Larter as someone else. Her current character is pretty boring so that would probably be okay.

    Don’t care what they do next season, as long as they do something that doesn’t feel like it’s been done a million times. This season hasn’t been all that bad (way better than the Pinehurst trainwreck) but I just feel like I’ve seen the “superpowered hunted by the gov’t” thing so many times, it doesn’t really make me all that invested this season.

    One of the “Behind the Eclipse” on ComicBookResources interviews stated that since it was cut, Molly’s depowering doesn’t count.
