Notes

  1. ^ a The game "Suresh's Loft" was actually introduced by the channel BBC Two in July 11, 2007, exactly 14 days ago they aired the pilot of Heroes in July 25. BBC Two has created the content, its own version of Heroes Evolutions, in collaboration with NBC. Every week's content is in fact correlated with the content of the week's aired episode. In order to also integrate the British version of the experience to this Release and Arc Order therefore, together with informing the release date, these contents are localized in-between episodes, in the same order BBC Two has done. As such, it will be possible to see simultaneously how both of the evolutions contents were released in both the USA and the UK.
  2. ^ a b c d e f g These graphic novels are different in the way that they all occurred in a possible future timeline where no present-day character was involved. Thus, these do not go anywhere further then to let us know what could happen if so-and-so occurred or why and how some characters could change their personality if so-and-so would happen. Further it also provides us with new character information. However as they do not occur according to the original timeline and as no present-day character appears, it's worth mentioning that they never actually happened.

Colored media

  • On Season Three, Week 10 of CBR's Behind the Eclipse, Heroes writers Aron Coleite and Joe Pokaski confirmed that NBC used "scabs," or Non-WGA writers, to produce content during the 2008 Writers Strike without the consent or oversight of the Heroes creative staff, who were prohibited from exercising any control during the strike. This calls into question the canoncy of GN's published during this period. Suspect GNs are highlighted in the colors pink and red.
    • The canoncy of the GNs in pink is in limbo in my opinion. Their content has yet to be recognized by other media or confirmed canon/not canon by the Heroes creative staff to my satisfaction.
    • GN's in red have been confirmed not canon to my satisfaction by Coleite and Pokaski by their following statement in the afore mentioned issue of Behind the Eclipse:
...So things like the Sanjog arc or “Ben Franklin as a Hero,” that so had nothing to do with us
