Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: Save The Cheerleader, Lose Your Show Edition

by

Recently, I was trolling the internet and found a darkened corner wherein someone lamented all the unfinished plot-lines and lost opportunities of Tim Kring’s ‘Heroes.’  Though initially interesting, the book coasted a bit in season 1, fell apart due to the writer’s strike in season 2 and never regained my interest enough with season 3 to bring me back for the last “volume.”  Given its ‘super-powers are genetic’ premise and the multiple similarities to the comic-book adventures of the X-Men, some have said that the end of the show was due to a case of Xavier-envy, but I wonder about what might have been, and how Claire would look in her Wolverine costume.

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) learned the most important lesson that ‘Heroes’ had to teach, which was the simple lesson that hair gel equals evil, asking: In your opinion, what property, comic or movie worst squandered the potential of its premise?
