“Dreams” to “Realty”!
The story of how I became the greatest hero ever.
It all began with the news of the birth of a “light-emitting baby” in the Chinese town of Qingqing. This was followed by a worldwide rash of “paranormal” events, the causes of which were never discovered.
Fast forward to the present and we find that 80 percent of the world’s population now carries some idiosyncratic mutation that has turned the world into a super-human society. While that means a rise in villains bent on using their natural-born “Quirk” for ill purposes, it also means that there are also “heroes” with the same “Quirk” ready to face down evil and overcome adversity to create a society that saves rather than destroys lives.
What person has not dreamed of becoming a superhero? But in a world where that has become a reality, one young boy, Izuku “Deku” Midoriya finds himself a castaway as one of the only 20 percent of the population devoid of any special powers whatsoever. He had aimed to enter U.A. High known for producing famous heroes, but was branded “indistinct”. Everything changes however when he meets his own personal hero, “All Might” and encounters all manner of friends, mentors, rivals and villains, as he faces down challenges on his way to becoming the greatest hero ever.
A new, passionate heroic epic for the next generation begins!
