9thwonders.com is the "official/unofficial fan site for Heroes." On December 10, 2007, the site became used for Heroes Evolutions content. The site shares its name with the in-story comic book written by Isaac Mendez, 9th Wonders!

About

9thwonders.com takes its name from Isaac Mendez's in-world comic book, 9th Wonders. The site was started by the show's writers, who were inspired by The Fuselage, ABC's official site for the creative team behind Lost. The original intention of the site was to have a site where the creators of Heroes could communicate with fans and share behind-the-scenes tidbits. The site was launched in July 2006, before Heroes ever aired, and before Comic-Con kicked off. Craig Byrne (whom Jeph Loeb knew through Craig's Smallville fansite kryptonsite) conducted interviews, compiled content, and was the site's moderator. JG Roshell designed the site. In an interview with Roshell, he said that NBC and the writers granted free reign to do with the site as they wanted. Roshell said that he wanted to capture a "classic 60s/70s Marvel look". He also said that the pages were made to look aged "as if the comics have been around for years".

The site's purpose evolved and changed as the site quickly grew in popularity (almost immediately after Comic-Conm and certainly after the popularity of Season One of Heroes). Though the site still contained interviews and exclusive content, it was primarily used as a discussion forum for fans, both hardcore and casual. In 2007, the site was slightly redesigned to be able to incorporate advertisements, and the site became known as the "unofficial official fan forum". In December 2007, the Heroes creative team started using the site as a way to release Heroes Evolutions (then called "Heroes 360") content, with the first message containing content about Richard Drucker. The site continued to function as a forum for fans, as well as a place for Heroes Evolutions content to be released, throughout the duration of Heroes. A strong, passionate community grew, giving birth to many fan fictions and other creations, such as the popular and successful Sarmy.

After the cancellation of Heroes, the site continued to be live, with hardcore fans continuing to converse about Heroes and other topics. The site was disbanded by NBC in 2014, and around the summer of 2014 it was turned into a Japanese insurance site. On July 26, 2015, 9thwonders.com was started again, but as a completely different site. No longer a traditional forum, the new 9thwonders.com utilized Tumblr to post fan pictures, artwork, and behind-the-scenes photos. The site also promises to post "clues of what's to come" and opportunities for interaction with the creators and the cast.

Cogitoergosum Blog

Beginning December 10, 2007, the "Who is Richard Drucker?" page at NBC.com was updated:

As of 12/10/07, Drucker has not yet responded... or has he?

Discuss more here!

The link directs to a thread at 9thwonders.com, titled "A new Announcement, We Received a Mysterious letter...", which includes a link to a mysterious document under the cogitoergosum blog. ( Cogito ergo sum translates to "I think, therefore I am.")

In My Heart...

The cogitoergosum blog's first post is dated December 05, 04:37 PM. Titled "In my heart...", the letter says:

In my heart.jpg

In my heart I know she was beautiful, but I
only knew her for a moment. He was bold, I am
sure, but of him I remember nothing. Is it possible that
when passion gets stirred with violence something
Remarkable can be born? Is that what started
it all... a stolen moment beneath the
gathering clouds?

You might think of this as a new beginning, but
there are no beginnings and no endings. When we are
pulled from the loop of our lives, the order of
things becomes unbalanced, and balance is
something I have sought for years.

Those of you who find this message must
Know that I am here, but not here.
This is part of me, but not part of me.
And exposure might bring danger
to us all.

Postcard

On December 12, 2007, a postcard stamped from Bhutan was posted on the cogitoergosum blog. The postcard had no date or address.

The front of the postcard is an image of the Tiger's Nest Monastery.
The text on the back of the postcard is a JavaScript program.
The JavaScript program on the back of the postcard reads:

var keyStr = "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/=";
var output = "";
var chr1, chr2, chr3;
var enc1, enc2, enc3, enc4;
var i = 0;
var input = "WW91IGFyZSBwbGF5aW5nIHdpdGggZmlyZS4gUGxlYXNlIHN0b3AgeW91ciBpbnZlc3RpZ2F0aW9ucyBpbnRvIG15IHBhc3Qh";
do {
enc1 = keyStr.indexOf(input.charAt(i++));
enc2 = keyStr.indexOf(input.charAt(i++));
enc3 = keyStr.indexOf(input.charAt(i++));
enc4 = keyStr.indexOf(input.charAt(i++));
chr1 = (enc1 << 2 ) | (enc2 >> 4);
chr2 = ((enc2 & 15) << 4) | (enc3 >> 2);
chr3 = ((enc3 & 3) << 6) | enc4;
output = output + String.fromCharCode(chr1);
alert(output);
if ( enc3 != 64 ) {
output = output + String.fromCharCode(chr2);
}
if ( enc4 != 64 ) {
output = output + String.fromCharCode(chr3);
}
} while ( i < input.length)
alert(output);

By typing "javascript:" followed by the code above on a web browser's address bar and pressing enter, the program is executed and several alert messages pop up, with the final one being the complete message:

You are playing with fire. Please stop your investigations into my past!

William Congreve puzzle

Cogitoergosum was updated December 19, 2007, at 04:08 PM with a riddle. It reads:

The playwright William Congreve said that "music has charms to soothe a savage breast. To soften rocks or bend a knotted oak." I myself was once tamed a long time ago. My favorite things are still in this past even as I'm being drawn to the present.

Show me you understand the things I hold dear...

iv7, V7(#5), i7, vii7 III7, VI7, III7(#5), i7, VII7, iv7, i7

iv7,V7(#5), i7, vii7 III7, VI7, V7(#5), i7, II7, v7, i7

The quote is from Act 1, Scene 1 of William Congreve's 1697 play, The Mourning Bride. The code appears to be the chord progression for "Blue in Green", a Miles Davis jazz song.

Evsdropr

On March 10, 2008, an individual began sending emails and text messages to Hana Gitelman's contacts. The messages contained clues to the individual's identity, telling Hana's contacts to discern the sender's identity by decoding things found at activatingevolution.org. Eventually, on March 26, 2008, the individual messaged Hana's contacts, telling them that they had discovered the mystery sender's identity: a 9thwonders.com user with the screenname "evsdropr".

Phone Call

On April 18, 2008 evsdropr posted the phone call conducted between Donna Dunlap and evsdropr:

Donna: Hello?
Evsdroper: Listen carefully. This is not a joke.
Donna: Jeff, is that you? I don't have time for games right now.
Evsdropr: My name is evs.
Donna: Who?
Evsdropr: Evsdropr. This is not game. This is a set up. The man across from you is a killer.
Donna: What?!
Evsdropr: You're going to tell him there's a family emergency. Then, you are going to leave.
Donna: Okay, I'll be right over, give everybody my best.
Evsdropr: Wait, one more thing.
Donna: What is it?
Evsdropr: Look under the table. I've taped a gun under your table. Take it. Hopefully you won't need it.
Donna: Alright, I'm leaving right now. I'll be there as soon as possible.

Dumont's Assignment Tracker

On June 16, 2008, evsdropr posted to the "Chapter 89: Root and Branch 2 (weeding out)" thread on 9thwonders.com:

I've been quiet lately, but it's because I've been keeping a close eye on things.

Seems Agent Sabine's really in the thick of it now. Have you read Dumont's Assignment Tracker yet? http://www.primatechpaper.com/AT_2.0/assignmentTracker.php

No surprises there...the root's always the hardest to find.

She's been barking up the wrong tree.

Thompson's voicemails

On June 17, 2008, evsdropr posted this thread on 9thwonders.com:

Seems Thompson Jr. has some big shoes to fill, first his father, now Bennet. He's been receiving Bennet's forwarded voicemails. I'm mentioned a few times, but no one has a clue about my true identity, still, which is good. I'll post a few.

-Evs.

Attachments:
Voicemail #1: Evs is after you.

Voicemail #2: I know you killed Cushing.

NOTE: shorty, a user at 9thwonders.com, claims to have left voicemail #2.

On June 20, 2008, evsdropr posted another message on the same thread:

A few mentions of Primatech in here. Maybe I'm not the only one keeping an eye on Company operations.

Attachments:
Voicemail #3: Hello Thompson, this is Tarot. I know what you're Company really is. You cannot keep this secret hidden forever. I have see much already and I will be watching.

Voicemail #4: I've got it figured out. I know what you did. I finally put all the pieces together. Primatech hasn't got anything to do with paper, does it? Well, just remember: We'll be watching you very carefully from now on.

NOTE: Tarot, a user at 9thwonders.com, claims to have left voicemail #3.

Later the same day, evsdropr again posted another message on the same thread:

Thompson Jr. seems to have a few more enemies than he does friends.

What's your guys take on him?

Voicemail #5: Thompson, apparently I'm not the only one who's seen what you and the Company have tried to hide. The trouble with secrets is someone always finds out. Hope you're prepared to deal with the truth getting out. You can't hide forever.

NOTE: Tarot also claims to have left voicemail #5.

On June 25, 2008, evsdropr posted a message to the same thread only containing another two voicemails attachments:

Voicemail #6: Hello Thompson. Lets just say we know what you're doing at the Company, and we don't like it...And we're going to stop you no matter what it takes, and so you should watch your back if you know what's best for you.

Voicemail #7: Evs, I know you're watching this. I know who you are and I will find you. Watch out for the dreams.

NOTE: MikeMc and PaganDreams, users at 9thwonders.com, claim to have left voicemails #6 and #7, respectively.

On July 1, 2008, evsdropr posted a message to the same thread only containing another voicemail attachment:

Voicemail #8: Thompson. This is Dekker in Berlin. Hey, my guy over at the power company just called. He says something's started. Something is sending low-grade electromagnetic pulses into his grid. Get this: the surges come about 80 a minute. The waves are shaped like heartbeats. I was going to send my field unit to check it out but it turns out one of your tag and bag teams is already in the area. Could this be your guy? We can't make contact with your team. The EMP is degrading everything for 9 city blocks. If you have got any alternative means for getting in touch with them, let me know, stat. I'm already picking up chatter on the police band about it.

On July 3, 2008, evsdropr posted a message to the same thread only containing another voicemail attachment:

Voicemail #9: Hello, this is Jong Mao Chen of the Red Tyger Division of the Defense Department. I believe you are familiar with the truce that the two organizations [scrambled]. I'm willing to renegotiate any terms of our truce. If you would like to give me a call back I will be available at 218-5862. You may contact me in Peking, Hajin Province, Delong, in Lemuria. Thank you.

NOTE: xcfirefox of 9thwonders.comclaimed responsibility for this message, that he didn't plan for Evs to publish the message, and that he could no longer be contacted at the given number. Firefox also gave a brief summary of ongoing discord between the Red Tyger Division and the Company that began from the division's inception.

On July 7, 2008, evsdropr posted another voicemail-only message to the same thread:

Voicemail #10: Hello, Mr. Thompson. This is Steven Dodd. Regarding the application that I applied for the job, I'm currently in the military still, stationed in Virginia, but in four months I will be back in Illinois for good for when I start. And I am currently in Illinois just for today. I fly back to Virginia tommorrow, but my business hours are from 7 AM to 3 PM when I'm back in Virginia. I will be available. I'll be busy Sunday and I'll be busy tommorrow. Anytime today and starting Monday, after 3 PM, I'll be available. I'd like to talk to you. Alright, give me a call. Bye.

Later on July 7, 2008, evsdropr posted another voicemail-only message to the same thread:

Voicemail #11: Our European friend got away. There's no need for pestering. He won't bother anyone else. You need to check out this 9th Wonders thing. I think they're on to us. The mole may be getting deeper. I'll check in later.

On July 14, 2008, evsdropr posts another voicemail-only message to the same thread:

Voicemail #12: Yes, Mr. Thompson. We have found a new ability in a person in Southeast Texas, along the coast. His ability is to morph into any solid object.

The German

On June 19, 2008, 2:58AM EDT, evsdropr posted a new thread on 9thwonders.com about the German:

Been searching all day for info in the Company's database on "The German." Came up with a few photos. Check them out below.

About 8 hours later, 11:13AM EDT, evsdropr posted to the same thread:

Here's another...

TheGermanTwo.jpg

On June 28, 2008, evsdropr posted another message to this thread:

Patterson is snoopier (or more bored) than I expected. He used his PDA's camera to take some unauthorized pix of the location where the bag & tag is going to happen. I need to know what he knows.

His PDA password is four characters. If you enter the wrong password enough, you get the password hint question: "B KA****" Figure out what goes where those stars are; I'm guessing that's the PDA password.

This German is a big deal. Devin can't be getting underfoot. Let's get into that PDA.
