Making his mark as the third big villain of the Dragon Ball Super series, Zamasu has returned working with the villainous Hearts for reasons that have yet to be revealed. Clearly suffering battle damage following his "death" at the hands of the Omni-King at the end of his arc, the fused deity has found himself not only fighting Goku, Vegeta, and Trunks, but Jiren as well during these first thirteen episodes of the Toei Animation spin-off. However, does this return mean we may be seeing a new side of Zamasu?
Zamasu, when he had first appeared, had promised to "eradicate all mortals", believing them to be a blight on the universe. Taking over the body of Goku from an alternate timeline, Zamasu teamed up with "himself" and the duo fused into one being, creating more than a few headaches for the trio of Saiyans in the main Dragon Ball Super series. One of the oaths that Zamasu had made was to never associate with mortals and do everything in his power to erase them from existence, so why is he teaming up with Hearts?
Trunks asks this very same question in Episode 13 of the spin-off series, wondering why the battered Kaioshin had decided to now team up with a mortal. Whether this means that Zamasu is simply using Hearts as a means to an end or if his goals have changed ever so slightly, we don't necessarily see this as a heroic turn coming down the pike for the Super antagonist. It should be interesting to see how exactly Zamasu was brought back and whether he has change any further from the character he once was following his resurrection.
