Heroes Fans: Which Heroes Would You Most Like to Focus On?

This season of Heroes features more superheroes than I can count on two hands, and it sometimes feels muddled and overcrowded. I know we all have our favorites — and we have a handful of heroes we could do without. This week's episode, for example, was a bit of a relief due to the absence of Maya, Alejandro and West, though I missed Sylar!

So here's your challenge, Heroes fans: If you could whittle down the storylines to those that focus on your top five most interesting heroes, who would you pick? After much debate, here is my list of the characters I am currently most curious about; many of the others could be killed off and I wouldn't be terribly broken up about it:

  • Sylar
  • Claire
  • Peter
  • Elle
  • Monica

I know, I know, Monica is maybe an odd choice, but I'm hoping her story ends up being totally relevant and interesting. I also think her power is kind of neat. What about you? Who do you absolutely need to know about the most?

Thank you fleur85 for not seeing the appeal of Kristen Bell's acting either!

Sylar, Mohinder+Matt, Hiro, Claire, and Micah. I put Mohinder and Matt together since they interact with each other a lot and I'm interested in the encounters they jointly face. I picked Micah because he's such a deep and intuitive boy, and I am interested in seeing him deal with such heavy issues even though he's just a kid.

elle peter monica jessica mohinder i love Monica didn't think a would, cause i don't really care for her story... but she's so chearful and beautiful and i rarely find black girls beautiful, but she's amazing, and as for someone who said before that she's awful, i totally disagree. i could totally go without claire, although i like Hayden. don't care for hiro, he's cute but at the same time annoying, a like more bitchy carachters :) sylar - i just don't like Zach... if someone else was playing him, like Hugh Laurie - i would totally love Sylar.

Claire, Elle, Peter, and Hiro. My fifth slot is open as I cannot decide. I like Ali Larter as an actress, so I want to see more of her. I think the Monica/copycat thing could be cool. The old hero angle (ala Mama Petrelli) could be interesting as well.

1)Hiro in the present, please get him out of the past its stupid 2)Monica 3)The nightmare man/ Matt's dad, I am so over Syler but this guy is scary 4)Claire, the angst is getting old, but I like her and her dad 5)Peter I feel like the show is stuck is trying to move forward by adding new characters, but still leaving the old ones in ruts and thus not really letting us get to know the new ones. If they are going to kill people they need to do it and get the story moving already

1) Ali Larter's character and her son (I really wished they didn't kill off DL..I loved him on Buffy and on Heroes) 2) Claire/Her Dad/New Love Interest 3) Monica..interesting story line..and more of granny too, she seems kind of Storm from X-men or the old lady on Matrix movies, I bet she has some killer power. 4) Hiro..love Hiro! 5) Spanish-speaking Brother & Sister Team..I forgot their names. They got on my nerves at first, but I am genuinely interested in following more of their story.

I'm all about the relationships/connections between the heroes: 1) Peter & Nathan (nice to see brotherly love storyline) 2) Claire & HRG (love the daughter/dad - trust/no trust relationship) 3) Hiro & Ando (bff 4 ever!) 4) Mohinder & Matt (Mohinder is so totally hot and the 2 of them trying to care for Molly is so sweet) 5) Micah & Monica

Well I've seen none of Season 2 yet (which reminds me I need to try downloading it this weekend) so my favs are from the first series: 1. Hiro 2. Claire 3. Peter 4. Sylar I know David Anders is appearing in this season so I'd like to see him too because I loved him in Alias.

1. Peter (but get him back to NY) 2. Matt and Molly without Mohinder. 3. Claire/Noah/Elle (without West) 4. Hiro and Ando (only if it all takes place in the 21st century) 5. Niki

I'm interested only in these characters, in this order: 1. Peter 2. Nathan 3. the person killing off the members of the Company (maybe Matt's dad, maybe not) 4. Sylar 5. maybe the twins because it seems like they might be the answer to "killing" No. 3 (equivalent of Peter from last season)

I guess I'm the only one who actually liked the Jessica/Nikki storyline. I like Ali Larter just from interviews I've seen with her so I'd like to see her back in action and in control of her evil side. Really I'd just like it to go back to what it was last season. I can't stand the Hiro storyline now. On the other hand the whole storyline with Sylar creeps me out as well so I am happy when he is not on...

I really don't get the Elle thing. I didn't watch VM, so I'm only basing this on her Heroes performance, but the actress seemed very wooden and the character was pretty one-note. She didn't come off so much sassy (which is what I think they intended ... ?) as she did obnoxious. I'm a huge fan of the show, so it really pains me to dislike a character so much, but I can only hope that she gets better ... or leaves. As for who I want to see more of: 1) Sylar - love him! 2) Nathan - he's so morally gray and complex and I feel like he has a lot of potential as a character for interesting story lines. Plus, Pasdar is sooo hot! 3) Monica (and Micah) - I love her! 4) Matt (and his dad) - his storyline has gotten soo much better since last season. Grunberg is such a great actor, and the whole creepy dad thing is great. 5) Peter - because I love him. Just get him out of the Land of Bad Accents already!

Hiro/Ando Monica (loving her power so far) Clair Matt Sylar -I don't like Elle so far, I guess I figured her character would be good and not evil.

I wish the Mohinder-Parkman-Molly story would hurry up. I can't STAND Mohinder, he's just so grating on my nerves, and this story is just being draaaagged out.
