A Look at the Older Generation of Heroes

at . Comments

While many of the Heroes we know and love are stuck in various locations, with seemingly unrelated story lines currently bogging them down (Peter in Ireland; Hiro in feudal Japan), the main focus of season two so far has been the older generation of Heroes.

Who are they? What do they know? And who is taking them?

With that in mind, let's take a look at the picture of who we assume to be the 12 members of this group, courtesy of Nathan's family picture album.


There are the ones we already knew about: Kaito Nakamura, Charles Deveaux, Daniel Linderman, Angela Petrelli, and Angela's husband (who the Mobile Game has informed us is named Arthur).

The other member we've already met is Bob, the Company man played by Stephen Tobolowsky who's working with Mohinder.

Then, there's Parkman's father. Molly says he's The Boogeyman. Matt says he left home when his son was 13 years old.

From there, we have five completely mysterious people in the photograph, all of whom we'll speculate about below:. First up is this guy, who looks vaguely Hispanic. As such, perhaps it's safe to assume he's Maya and Alejandro's father or relative.

Next, there's an African American woman. Could she be a younger Nana Dawson (Nichelle Nichols)? The old woman is clearly more important than she seems, acting as if she knows something she cannot reveal.

At this point, anyone older in the cast we're guessing has a connection to this generation of Heroes.

Now, things get even harder to speculate about We're left a grey-haired white guy and two white women, one blonde and one brunette. They could be anyone. Let's base our guesses on their placement in the photograph.

The brunette woman is right next to Mr. Parkman, but Matt would have mentioned if that were his mother, right? It could be another Parkman relative.

That just leaves the blonde woman, all the way on the left-hand side of the photograph. We already know Kristen Bell's character, Elle, will be working for the Company. So it doesn't seem like a stretch to say this is her mom.

Of course, what do we know? We could be mistaken in every instance. Do you have any theories? Let us know in our
