My Hero Academia S5 Episode 10 Cover

Deku Is Turning Into an Anime Spider-Man, and I Love it!

Do you guys know who Kohei Horikoshi, the creator of My Hero Academia, cited as a major influence when he created Izuku Midoriya. None other than the wall-crawler himself, Spider-Man. And it really shows; both start out as these nerdy kids that people look down on, only to become this incredibly inspiring heroes. However, the Spider-Man inspiration just kicked things up a notch. In the Last episode, we saw Deku suddenly manifest a new Quirk, courtesy of One For All’s ability to stockpile and pass on the Quirks of previous users. As a result, Deku’s got an even bigger arsenal of powers to draw from. As the fifth match of the Joint Training Session reaches its climax, though, he has to learn to control his powers, and fast!

Star Wars: The Bad Batch Episode 6-Omega's Packing Heat

Some got reactivated or repurposed in the decades that followed, but the rest just dropped off the face of the Galaxy. Which begs the question: what did the Empire do with all the Battle Droids? We finally get to see what happened onscreen in the new episode of The Bad Batch.

Edens Zero Chapter 145-Homura's Overdrive Form

Homura’s Inner Fox Spirit Awakens! The Power of Overdrive!

Super Saiyan, Tailed Beast Mode, Dragon Force, Second Gear, Overdrive. It seems like a prerequisite for a lot of Shonen manga to give the heroes some sort of super-powered form. Edens Zero established one some time ago in the form of Overdrive, and Shiki’s already attained it. However, this chapter of Edens Zero sees another hero reach that status. Amidst her fight against the first of the Ocean’s 6, Homura awakens Overdrive, and her inner fox spirit!
