Following the unification of the League of Villains and the Meta Liberation Army into the biggest villain organization to date with the Paranormal Liberation Front, the heroes of UA Academy are being asked to step up to the new challenges arising across the globe. With Midoriya and the rest of the students looking to grow up fast, work studies have still managed to elude both Izuku and Bakugo, their "salvation" may have arrived in one of the most unlikely of places. Who will be the new mentor to this fiery pair of rivals?
Following the UA Academy being given some much needed down time with a Christmas celebration, the brief respite was short for both Midoriya and Bakugo who were still attempting to figure out what they were going to do for their work studies. With Nighteye and Gran Torino not being an option for Izuku and Best Jeanist out of the picture for Bakugo, Todoroki arrives to offer them a spot with the current number one hero, and his father, Endeavor.
As we've seen in the past, the relationship between Endeavor and his son Todoroki is a rocky one at best, with the training that the father underwent with his son was intense. The pain that Todoroki was met with, as well as the harsh criticisms of his father, caused the son to reject his flame based abilities for a time, instead relying entirely on the ice powers he inherited from his mother.
With the world more dangerous then ever, Endeavor's intense training may be the best work study around for the trio of Midoriya, Bakugo, and Todoroki in order to prepare themselves for the nefarious plans of the Paranormal Liberation Front. Will the trio even manage to get along long enough for the training to take effect?
What do you think of the UA student trio falling under the tutelage of Endeavor? Will his training be enough to lead the heroes to ultimate victory? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the students of UA Academy!
