Seven Heroes of Victory
Wired Magazine’s Annalee Newitz believes the plotline of Heroes bears more than a few similarities to that of the recent Grant Morrison-written DC series 7 Soldiers of Victory. Because, you know, nobody’s ever done assemble-the-squad plotlines in the history of television or comic books.
Actually, her point is "the fact that I could fruitfully compare them means that Heroes is finally coming into its own as a good comic book story". Or as, one would assume, a good dramatic story — period.
