Indeed, in this gripping first volume of My Hero Academia, we are introduced to a fascinating world where a whopping 80% of the population possesses superpowers, known as "Alter". It is in this universe that we meet the young and determined Izuku Midoriya, a 14-year-old aspiring to become a superhero despite not having an Alter. Izuku's perseverance and keen sense of duty set him apart, making him a likable and admirable protagonist.
Izuku is a fervent admirer of the invincible All Might, the most powerful and iconic superhero, a symbol of peace and justice. Despite his lack of power, Izuku's deep aspiration is to join the prestigious Hero Academia and follow in the footsteps of his idol, to combat supervillains and protect the innocent. This dream seems unattainable until an unexpected act of bravery puts him on the path of his favorite hero.
When Izuku comes to the aid of his classmate Katsuki Bakugo, held hostage by a malevolent creature, he catches the attention of All Might. Acknowledging the young man's courage and determination, All Might offers him a unique opportunity: to become the heir to his power. This proposition alters Izuku's destiny and opens the door to a future he had never dared to imagine.
However, the path to heroism is fraught with challenges. Adapting to his new power proves to be a colossal challenge for Izuku. With each use, his body sustains considerable damage, highlighting the difficulties and sacrifices inherent to the hero's path. Nevertheless, his indomitable will and courageous heart propel him forward, illustrating his growth and learning within Yuei High School.
This initial volume of My Hero Academia lays the foundation for a story rich in action, emotion, and character development. It not only portrays the adventures of Izuku Midoriya but also explores deep themes such as courage, determination, and the very definition of what it means to be a hero.
