Superheroes always provide good material for a game. By default they spend most of their time doing what we all want to do in games – flying, punching up bad guys and using super-strength to pick up buses and chuck them around like paper cups.
So new(ish) US TV series Heroes was always going to be a good choice for whoever got to sign it up. Because for one, it doesn't just have one superhero, it has a whole pack of them. And, interestingly, their superpowers are somewhat atypical, ranging from spontaneous regeneration to being able to paint the future.
