Evil Mutants

(no subject)

Heroes opened last night. What can I say?

Sure, it's a live-action amalgam of the X-men and Supreme Power, but I like them super heroes. The opening episode didn't have quite as much punch as I'd expected, but I understand that it'll come along. The speechiness and the not-so subtle lessons on Life, the Universe, and Everything I could have done without, but maybe the genre can't.

The characters I liked best were the Professor, Nathan Petrelli, and the cheerleading Wolverine. Hiro? Scary. Single mom Jekyll &Hyde? Kind of offensive, actually. Painting precog isn't very practical.

The ending was rather sweet.
