A story from Suresh's childhood haunts him to this very day.

Summary

His father's death causes Mohinder to reflect on their past together. In 1982, Mohinder listens to a story his grandmother tells him about the Hindu Goddess, Kali. In the present, Mohinder is in New York, NY, claiming his father's body at the morgue. He then goes to the Chelsea Cab Company to investigate the taxi his father drove. This taxi, in which Chandra was found dead, is ripped apart and covered with blood. As Mohinder accepts a job as a taxi cab driver with his father's employer, Mr. Bennet surreptitiously follows Mohinder with a camera and a telescopic lens. In the end, Mohinder decides he will continue his father's research in hopes of finding his murderer.

Character Appearances

Notes

  • At the time of its release, Monsters was the first graphic novel in which no character was an evolved human. Since then, however, Mohinder injected himself with a Genetic modification formula and gained the power of enhanced strength.
  • Chandra's physical appearance in the flashback resembles the original, stand-in actor (see Chandra Suresh and this image).
  • The story that takes place in Monsters fills in the "holes" of Genesis. Monsters tells what happened when Mohinder first came to New York City, and continues the idea that Mr. Bennet was spying on him.
  • The first page of Monsters is mimicked in the first page of The Natural Order of Things, with a few differences. Ando replaces Hiro, Tracy replaces Niki, the flying scene is the fight between Sylar, Nathan, and Peter instead of Nathan rushing up to catch Peter falling, Claire appears in flames with Noah, and the segment with Isaac is replaced by Matt kneeling over an unconscious Sylar. It should be noted that the general layout is the same and that from a quick glance, the two covers appear mostly identical.
