My Hero Academia has done it again. When fans think the series is done laying on the surprise, creator Kohei Horikoshi takes fans for a spin and shakes up everything they know. So, if you thought you already knew everything about Izuku, then you need to think again.
So, be warned! There are spoilers for My Hero Academia chapter 213 below! Proceed carefully!
Over the weekend, My Hero Academia went live with a brand-new chapter, and it was there fans caught up with Izuku. The boy has had a rough time lately as his quirk went rogue a couple chapters back. The event forced Shinso and Ochaco to calm the boy down, and it was only then Izuku learned what really was happening.
As it turns out, Izuku has a new quirk to use, and it is all thanks to One For All.
According to the new chapter, the shadowy quirk used by Izuku belongs to a former inheritor of One For All. The vestige of the man powering Izuku appeared before the boy in his psyche, and the buff man explained few things.
“The power you released just now was my quirk,” he explained. “Earlier you were thinking, ‘Grab him’ or ‘Capture him’. You were thinking that, right?”
As Izuku had been thinking of capturing Monoma, the boy agreed.
“The appropriate quirk for that intention is my Black Whip. You’re lucky mine’s the first that came out! It’s a great quirk.”
While Izuku does wield One For All as a collective, the boy seems to have inherited the individual quirks his predecessors wielded in conjunction with One For All. Black Whip is just one of six new powers the young boy has hiding within him, and it would put things real lightly to say Izuku was shocked by the big reveal.
So, are you a fan of the boy's new power...? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
