''Heroes'' burning questions

Posted on

What’s up with Mr. Sulu?
Hiro’s father (George Takei) is ”one of several puppet masters pulling the strings,” says exec producer Tim Kring. The other members of the illicit illuminati: Mr. Linderman and the Petrelli boys’ mother, Angela.

What’s the true mission of H.R.G.’s (Jack Coleman) hero-hunting company, Primatech?
”We’re talking about a black ops agency that engages in a ‘tag and release’ monitoring program of the superpowered populations,” says Kring. ”The mission won’t be explicitly spelled out until season 2.” However, he promises viewers will see ”central headquarters, where the secrets are kept, by the end of season 1.

Does Sylar (Zachary Quinto) get his power by eating brains?
”That’s the popular speculation,” laughs Kring. ”There is a connection between the poewrs and the brain — and Sylar has found [it]. Early in season 2, you’ll find out what he’s been doing with the brains.”
