Time to make a stand with Heroes: Volume One

By Garrett Godwin

What would happen if you discover that you have abilities like no one else, and you were destined for something great? What would you do then?

The answers will be revealed in Heroes: Genesis, Volume One, in which ordinary people finding out that they have extraordinary powers as they slowly learn that the fate of the world lies in their hands.

Part I: Save the cheerleader....
To some, Claire Bennet (Hayden Panettiere) is just a popular high-school cheerleader.  But to her and her best friend Zach, she is something else -- indestructible.  But that is just the beginning for Claire, as not only does she discover more about herself, but also the father whom she has trusted and loved...

Part II: Are you on the list?
Continuing where his late father left off, Dr. Mohinder Suresh (Sendhil Ramamurthy) tracks down others like brothers Peter (Milo Ventimiglia) and Nathan Petrelli (Adrian Pasdar), whose genetics have been altered, leading them to have superhuman abilities-- such as the power to absorb others' abilities and the ability to fly.  However, the good doctor soon learns that he's not the only one looking for these people with extraordinary powers.  The only question that remains is: who can he trust?

Part III: ...Save the world
Blessed -- and cursed -- with their powers, the Heroes starts to come together and play their part as the battle between good and evil comes to a shocking and surprising climax.  Who will live -- and who will die?
