Author's Notes

This is just how I feel personally, but the most exciting part of any superhero movie or comic is the process of becoming a hero. And I mean "exciting," which goes a level beyond "interesting" in how it creates a sense of anticipation. So I set out to make a story about becoming the greatest hero there ever was that would perfectly capture that excitement, even for myself as the author. The stage for that was set way earlier than I expected , but I've still got a ton of story in me so I'm going ahead at full throttle

Volume Summary

Midoriya has learned a few tricks from Gran Torino, but some things just have to be experienced to be understood. Even though he’s not ready, when the League of Villains attacks in the town of Hosu, Midoriya rushes to help Ida, who is engaged in a life-and-death struggle with Hero Killer Stain. Stain has some very particular ideas about heroes and their place in society—and he means to purge the world of every hero he can find!
