NBC (ended 2010)
|For any comic book fans, in New X-Men # 25 (came out in 1994) Professor Xaiver wipes Magneto's memory to stop him....it reminded me of this episode...Parkman wipes Sylar's memory and makes him believe he is Nathan Petrelli...they always seem to throw in little homages to X-Men lol|
At least X-Men 25 had a battle. Actually... I think if they had made it more like X-men 25, it would have been better.
Non of this Angela and HRG telling Matt to make Sylar into Nathan. Matt could've just resolved after seeing dead Nathan, not to let this happen again. And, knowing Sylar can hardly be killed, decides himself that the only way to stop him is too wipe his mind clean. So, Matt removes Sylar's memories and such... leaving us to think he is now an empty husk. But to everyone's surprise, he wakes up believing that he is Nathan, because those are the only memories left.... Oh... but I guess I forgot he'd need to shift into Nathan... whatever, maybe he was in Nathan's form when he got tranq'd (there, problem solved). After seeing him sincerely believing he is Nathan, and Matt double checking in the brain, THEN Angela feels that in some way her son is still alive and convinces herself to keep it this way.
That would have made more sense than the "We need Nathan to be alive, so make Sylar become Nathan" idea. IMO.
|X-Men and Heroes has to be connected because they have the same base story - People with Powers. And Heroes can not go inventing some powers so that they can be different then every other show (comic book) that has people with powers. They have different characters, stories, time... And if sometimes some plot or usage of some power is similar to the other show/comic book then it is because of the same power that has been used or the goal is in some way similar. Like OP said it was comic book #25 and it is issued in 1994, 15 years have passed, maybe writers like us have grown up with X-Men and upgraded their knowledge and used it in Heroes. |
Except it would have been a lot easier to have Peter shift into Nathan and end the "Hunt".
Heck the President probably would've listened to plain old Peter after Peter saved his life like that, with the Presidents co-operation I might add. They've already shook hands for Peter to be able to shift into him. Peter as himself, or as Nathan, along with HRG, could've got the same government Co-operation and funding than "Nathan" did.
Angela has just crossed from being illogical and some kind of weirdo Zealot, to being an outright Psychotic, actually. It really made very little sense... it was quite a Half-Baked scheme. Which actually kinda makes sense for her weirdo character. What irked me more was HRG's insistence. That was TOTALLY out of his character. TOTALLY.
If it was really so absolutely important for Nathan to stay alive, HRG and Angela would've insisted without stop that Nathan not leave to face Sylar in the first place.
