I have started the twentieth chapter of my new superhero book and things are starting to heat up. We get to see the aftermath of a big battle and the beginning of another one. Something unnatural awakens and threatens the city. The stakes will be higher and the superhero won’t walk away unscathed.
I have reached the nineteenth chapter of my new superhero book and things are starting to heat up. We get to see a grotesque experiment being performed during a meeting of supervillains. At the same time, the superheroes are on their way to break up the meeting. It is going to be a dark and intense chapter as good and evil begin to clash behind a grim background of madness.

Now that Tomura Shigaraki is awake, we finally got to see a small taste of his new power. For now, all we got to see was his augmented Decay quirk and none of the quirks he got from All For One. Even so, the power of that one quirk was more than enough to cause all-out chaos on the superheroes. After he woke up, Shigaraki wasted no time using his Decay quirk to disintegrate the hospital, the surrounding area, and all heroes present. A lot of superheroes died by Shigaraki’s hand in a matter of moments. The whole scene looked like something from an earthquake as the superheroes frantically tried to save as many people as they could while desperately trying to escape Shigaraki’s wrath. Those who failed to escape were turned to dust. As the superheroes ran for their lives and evacuated the area, they tried using their quirks to stop Shigaraki’s rampage, but it was useless as his Decay quirk disintegrated everything in its path. While this was happening, Doctor Ujiko laughed maniacally at the heroes, saying all their efforts to stop Shigaraki have been in vain. Meanwhile, Izuku Midoriya could sense what was happening long before the city disintegrated and he started using One For All at 45%, which is the highest he has been able to activate on his own so far. In the epicenter of the destruction is Shigaraki himself, laughing with joy while claiming a hero’s cape as his own. I think we are about to see the first round of Izuku and Shigaraki’s grudge match. I can imagine it being similar to when Batman first fought Bane, which resulted in Batman getting his spine snapped in two. Overall, this was a satisfactory taste of what the new and improved Tomura Shigaraki is capable of and I look forward to seeing what other quirks he has gained from All For One in the next chapter.

Unfortunately, we did not get to see Tomura Shigaraki unleashed this week. However, it still looks like the tide of the battle is still turning in the supervillains’ favor for two reasons. First, the ice villain known as Geten is rallying the Paranormal Liberation Front against the superheroes. When the battle at the mansion started, the supervillains were completely caught off guard and were in disarray. Because of this, the superheroes gained a lot of ground before the supervillains could regain their composure. Now, the supervillains have a strong leadership figure to rally behind and regroup. Due to this, the supervillains can finally unleash everything they have at the superheroes with a renewed sense of tenacity they did not have before.
Second, now that Tomura Shigaraki is awake and out of his capsule, Gigantomachia can smell his scent. Gigantomachia is a devout loyalist to All For One and has accepted Shigaraki has All For One’s successor. Now that Shigaraki is awake and in the presence of several superheroes, Gigantomachia will know his new master needs him. This is a clear sign that Gigantomachia will come for Shigaraki even if he has to plow through the superheroes’ ranks to do so. Gigantomachia has proven to be strong enough to collapse a mountain, fight nonstop for two days, and fight multiple superhumans at the same time. Based on these capabilities, Gigantomachia can singlehandedly destroy all momentum the superheroes have gained so far. Once out of the mansion, Gigantomachia will quickly make his way to the hospital Shigaraki is at. When he arrives, Gigantomachia can break the hospital siege by himself and rescue both Shigaraki and Ujiko. Gigantomachia has it in him to destroy all the superheroes’ efforts both at the mansion and the hospital.
Overall, the tide of the battle is slowly turning in favor of the Paranormal Liberation Front. Shigaraki is awake and more powerful than ever, the Paranormal Liberation Front is regrouping with renewed determination, and Gigantomachia is about to unleash hell on the superheroes to get to Shigaraki. We will find out what happens next when the next chapter comes out.
I have reached the eighteenth chapter of my new superhero book. This is where the superhero will interact with future supervillains through his civilian persona. Meanwhile, we get to have a closer look at the mental and emotional state of some of the characters. In addition, the superhero will receive a vital clue that will lead him to the first supervillain of the story. Overall, this will be an intense chapter full of charged dialogue.
Now that we know what kind of power Tomura Shigaraki has gained from Doctor Ujiko’s surgery, it is time to theorize what to expect. It has been revealed that Shigaraki gained the original version of All For One’s quirk while All For One himself kept a duplicate. Now that we know that All For One had a copy of his original power, the pieces are starting to fit together.
When All For One revealed his ultimate quirk combination in his final fight with All Might, I thought something was fishy. Despite the strength the combination possessed, it seemed underwhelming. The reason it seemed underwhelming is because All For One spent over a century stealing the quirks of others. If that combination was truly the ultimate combination of his strongest quirks, it should have been something much bigger and more powerful. The quirks All For One used to form his ultimate combination largely consisted of muscle manipulation, bone manipulation, and arm transformation based quirks. Based on his history, that combination seemed more limited than it should have been.
Based on these facts, it is obvious now that All For One’s quirk was limited not just because he was weakened by his first fight with All Might. It was also because the copy he gave himself was the default setting, which means he had to steal and accumulate quirks all over again. In order to make the superheroes think he was the ultimate threat, All For One needed to gather enough quirks to make himself formidable enough. Meanwhile, his original quirk was safely in Ujiko’s care until Shigaraki was ready to receive it.
Now, Tomura Shigaraki has the original version of All For One’s quirk. However, we still don’t know what to expect on how it will manifest in Shigaraki. Will Shigaraki gain all the strongest quirks All For One stole over the past century or will he have the default setting of the quirk? If Shigaraki got the default setting, that means he will have to start stealing and accumulating quirks all over again. With so many superheroes in his presence right now, Shigaraki will have a golden opportunity to start stockpiling a truckload of quirks in one fell swoop. However, if Shigaraki gains all the quirks All For One stole over the past century, he will be as strong as All For One was in his prime.
We got a glimpse of All For One’s power in his prime during his fight with Nana Shimura. During that battle, All For One’s accumulated quirks had the power to not only summon unnatural abominations to do his bidding, but it also made the sky darken and the ground shatter. The fractured streets would be set ablaze with purple fire, fragments of concrete would levitate in the air, and the atmosphere crackled with black electricity. Overall, All For One’s original quirk had the power to summon hell on earth and that same power is inside Tomura Shigaraki and about to be unleashed upon the world once again!
Have you ever been dissatisfied with how your arms are? What if you could change your arms into whatever form you wish? The ability to transform your arms is a limited version of shapeshifting. You can enlarge your arms’ size to increase your strength. You can have several arms sprout from your original limbs in order to multiply your grabbing and punching power. You can alter the shape of your arms to create weapons such as swords or hammers or whips. The possibilities of transforming your arms are nearly limitless. I will be featuring at least two characters who possess this ability in my new superhero book.
