A open discussion about the TV show Heroes on NBC
10:16 PM 4/27/09 · If you follow any of the X·Men titles then you're probably familiar with the Exiles, a band of dimension hopping X·Men from multiple realities that try to fix things on different Earths. One of them was a guy named Morph, that guy on my icon, who was possessed along the way by a major baddie (to such an extent that his actual personality died) but the rest of the team used an advanced behavioral modification device to make the baddie think he was actually Morph...
...but on some levels it never fully took. There were lots of little subtle things that Morph couldn't do, turns of phrase he never used, that were all from the bad guy just under the surface.
This isn't the only time this sort of thing has happened in any number of fandoms but it is the one up front in my head at the moment. Given the mutant theme and the various similarities to the emo·sapiens of Heroes, I've been looking for any number of similar themes from that series to this one pretty much since it began.
So, how things went down at the end of the past chapter hit me as a possibility earlier in the day before I saw the episode but I hadn't worked out how, or even if, it could be applied.
See, Morph was a shapeshifter.
( So, the eternal question remains...Collapse )
