Whereabouts

Ok, the file at the end of this novel says that Mindy and Ted went off the grid, does this mean that Ted livid in Caracas with his mother for a while, before returning alone to the USA? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 21:13, 29 March 2010 (EDT)

  • That sounds logical and probable. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:20, 29 March 2010 (EDT)
    • So we list him as having lived there right? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 20:59, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
      • I hate to be "that guy", but it's not confirmed. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:22, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
        • Can we at least list it as a likely possibility in a notes or trivia section? Intuitive Empath - Talk - Contributions 14:40, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
          • I think we could yes. Just thought, if Mindy didn't completely get rid of all that radioactive energy, perhaps her body got rid of it bit by bit. This could have caused Ted's rule of Ted part of his ability to kick in. --mc_hammark 14:42, 31 March 2010 (EDT)

Only 6 Founders in 1978?

Bob, Angela, Charles, Arthur, Kaito, Linderman are already founders in 1978 and Maury is now only just coming into the fold? If the company is already up and running, does that mean there are really only 6 founders? daevon 23:01, 29 March 2010 (EDT)

  • No. Victoria Pratt had been working with the Company since at least February 14, 1977, and was still working with the Company on November 2, 1977, when Adam was imprisoned. It's possible she left the fold by February 1978, or that she just wasn't with everybody else on the roof that day. We just don't know about the other four at this point--whether they were working to found the Company, or whether they came later...However, it's clear now that Maury's role in helping to found the Company came later in the Company's development, as opposed to earlier, when the original six helped shape it before it was "officially" formed. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:19, 29 March 2010 (EDT)
    • No, Ryan. Maury was not one of the original 12 but the successor of the twelfth (Adam Monroe/Mindy Sprague). That is what they meant when they said founded by 12 individuals (Angela, Charles, Daniel, Bob, Kaito, Arthur, Harry, Victoria, Susan, Paula Hawkins/Gramble, Carlos and Adam). Mindy was supposed to succeed Adam as a founder. --Blood69 05:13, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
    • Makes sense to me.--BOYCOOL -- THE END IS NIGH. 07:24, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
      • Have the group of 12 ever been absolutely, undeniably confirmed as Company founders?--Gibbeynator 09:02, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
        • To me it looks like they were more like the leaders of the Company when the picture was taken, rather than exactly founders. Or, the Company hasn't been founded yet. I don't know. It's kind of confusing.--BOYCOOL -- THE END IS NIGH. 07:20, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
          • Thing is, if you think about it there are only 4 founders (Angela,Charles,Bob and Linderman). Also, as Ryan said Victoria was already working with them by this date. --Leckie -- Talk 15:11, 31 March 2010 (EDT)
            • The Victoria thing leads to a pretty serious plot hole, when you think about it.--Gibbeynator 10:29, 3 April 2010 (EDT)
              • She may have decided to take some time off after the Shanti Virus incident (and almost being killed herself), before coming back for a little while. The Group of Twelve photo is still an unknown point in time. --Ricard Desi 11:11, 3 April 2010 (EDT)
                • She may have also decided to "quit" the Company following the Shanti Virus incident. Or perhaps she wasn't in New York at the time. Or perhaps she decided not to leave her home to have a meeting on a rooftop while there were hurricane-force winds, power outages, and several feet of snow outside. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 11:22, 3 April 2010 (EDT)
                • The group of 12 photo is clearly a recent development, because all of the group members are played by their fully grown actors.--Gibbeynator 20:57, 5 April 2010 (EDT)

Blizzard

  • Which one of the 2 blizzards would fit? --Juba 08:34, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
    • Considering the GN gives dates of Feb 6th (when she's in the reactor) and Feb 7th (when the group is discussing events), it would seem intended to be this one. --Maelwys 12:46, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Art style

Am I the only person who thought that this particular GN looked weird? Everyone looks off-model and way younger than they should be at this point. Kaito and Arthur look incredibly young for people who are supposed to be in their 40s, and in fact, Kaito looks nothing like George Takei.--Gibbeynator 09:01, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

  • Yeah, the last one Angela looked like Alexa Nichols, not Cristine Rose, even though in an earlier graphic novel, War Buddies, Part 5, the character was made to look like Cristine, even though she was younger then. But I suppose, it is a graphic novel, and we are meant more to look at it with an askew view, and kinda blur the edges a bit. --mc_hammark 15:22, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Personnel Files

Just something to note. So far we have:

We know that somewhere between 05 and 113 is Victoria Pratt. What's interesting is that there are 100 people presumably between Arthur and Mindy. What's more interesting is that there are 7 people between Kaito and Arthur. Does this include Adam? Drucker? --Ricard Desi 10:37, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

  • Just so we're clear, Maury goes on with 12 of the agents to become founders of the official company. These numbers seem to represent the order of which agents joined, 121 meaning Maury was the 121st, yeah? --mc_hammark 15:18, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Mindy's report?

Should we create an article for it? I'll start a page for it in my namespace just now. --mc_hammark 12:05, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

  • Actually, hold on. There's so many files now. I think that is Angela's journel. Mindy had a journal in the previous, then Angela wrote a write-up thing on Mindy's file... uh, confusing... --mc_hammark 12:15, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

Linderman?

It's only just occurred to me that Linderman is entirely missing from this GN, despite six other founders being present. That's... odd... --Ricard Desi 17:32, 30 March 2010 (EDT)

  • Yes. There are other founders missing, too. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 21:17, 30 March 2010 (EDT)
    • What if they're (Arthur, Daniel and Maury) working with Adam, and they cause (with Telepathic suggestion) the TMI accident?

"The question is where is Linderman? When he approached Arthur sometime after Vietnam did Arthur already know the fuller story by then? Was it an elaborate plan by the company to try and get Arthur involved or was Linderman estranged from the group? Why did he come back? Was the power vampire girl a setup by the company to coax him back? Maybe he met Adam in the army. Maybe Arthur met Adam in the Army. Maybe this was not just Adam's plan but Arthur's. Has the company been made of two halves for so long? Arthur, Adam, Linderman, and Maury duping Angela, Charles, Bob and Kaito? Did Charles Deveaux have the Shanti Virus?" -- Mike the Man-child!

  • It's just a theory but this is what I reckon. Obviously, the idea of a Company was officially founded in 1961 when Angela, Charles, Bob and Linderman decided to never let the incident at Coyote Sands happen again. The Company was probably just about taking off when they recruited Kaito in 1963. Sometime after 1963, Adam must have arrived and "brought" them together by giving them the idea that could save not just evolved humans, but the whole world with their abilities. Angela would later meet and marry Arthur, where she discovered his incredible ability. Rather than risk ruining their marriage by revealing her powers, she employed Linderman to go undercover and introduce Arthurn to the world of evolved humans, starting a chain reaction that would eventually bring Arthur into the Company fold. At the same time, Linderman overcame some own personal problems during his mission and his encounter with Linda Tavara. Based on the fact that Victoria never displayed an ability, perhaps she was a normal scientist who was recruited to study the Shanti Virus. Then, when Adam discovered how powerful the virus was, he attempted to unleash it to "save" the world, at which point he was captured and imprisoned by Kaito. Linderman, who was a devoted follower of Adam, most likely distanced himself from the group. 1978 marks the incident at Three Mile Island, where Arthur introduced the rest of the group to Maury. Like I said, it's just a theory :) -- SlicinDicinEdgar
    • No SEASON 5 for Heroes...look here]!! -- TanderixUTCR

Grammatical error in Angela's addendum?

"Mindy nor Theodore have been seen since the blizzard of '78."

Shouldn't this be "Neither Mindy nor Theodore..."? I'm no English teacher, but it just sounds wrong as written. -BAGTbird 22:32, 6 April 2010 (EDT)

  • Ditto.--BOYCOOL -- THE END IS NIGH. 22:53, 6 April 2010 (EDT)
  • Hi, I'm an English teacher. Although it is usually coupled with the word "neither", the word "nor" actually can be used on its own. The sentence in question is grammatically correct. -- RyanGibsonStewart (talk) 23:07, 6 April 2010 (EDT)
