The story opens with Your Character flying through the devastated city of Northbridge, confronting a mysterious figure engulfed by energy.

The story flashes back to 6 months earlier, where it is revealed the young man/woman is the executive assistant to Grayson Prescott at Prescott Industries. After fixing a catering error with Marjorie Miles and checking in with engineer Dax and security guard Santiago, your character convinces Grayson to allow your best friend Poppy Patel, a junior editor at a fashion magazine called Motif, to attend a gala at Prescott Industries that night.

Billionaire Silas Prescott reveals a device called The Prism Gate, which will provide clean and inexhaustible energy, putting an end to pollution, famine, and inequality.

The event is then interrupted by a group of four heavily armed criminals, most likely behind a series of Jewelry heists mentioned by Santiago earlier in the chapter, intending to commit a robbery.

Trivia

  • The drawing style of this book is similar to that of "Endless Summer" in that it uses its own comic book-esque style rather than the style used in majority of the other books.
  • In what appears to be unique to the Hero series, Book 1 was put on hiatus following the release of Chapter 9. This was what Choices called a "midseason break", and it occurred during September 2017.[1][2]
  • The book's cover art shows the subheading "Vol. 1" instead of "Book 1" as would be expected of other Choices stories. This was most likely done to reflect the typical style of a comic book.
  • Pixelberry introduced a new genre, Superheroes, with this story. In the in-game menu however, it is listed under "Fantastic Adventure" along with The Crown and the Flame.
  • Some characters have alliterative names. This is a trope found in various comic books and is most often associated with characters created by famous comic-book writer Stan Lee.
  • Plotwise, it is very similar to the CW TV show "The Flash". Such as the Prism Gate being similar to The Particle Accelerator, Dax being based off the character Cisco Ramon, and Poppy being based off the characters Caitlin Snow and Iris West. Another way it is similar to CW's The Flash is that the Prism Crystal acts almost, if not exactly the same as the Philosopher's Stone from Season 3 giving people superhuman abilities
  • Pixelberry has referred to Hero as their first Superhero story, hinting that there may be more Superhero themed series in the future.
  • There is a strong possibility the stories of Hero and that of Endless Summer will become intertwined. The Hero character Silas Prescott has been referenced in Endless Summer, as the Endless Summer character Everett Rourke has been referenced in Hero. Since Silas and Everett are both businessmen, it is implied they have an ongoing feud. They have even more similarities than meets the eye; both of them are the primary antagonists of their respective series, both have sons who disapprove of their actions, and both of them are concocting schemes to take control of the world.
  • The final chapter of the book, Chapter 15, was initially meant to be released on November 1st 2017, but was reportedly delayed due to technical issues, and thus the release date was pushed back by exactly one week.[3][4]
