Set in a world where 80% of humanity has been endowed with superpowers that are known as Quirks, society has inevitably seen some people use their abilities for more nefarious means and the rise of heroes who stand against them. My hero Academia follows the powerless Izuku Midoriya after a fateful encounter with the world’s greatest hero, All Might, and how he inherits the power of that legendary hero.
