In a class of the best of the best when it comes to aspiring heroes, it can sometimes be difficult for some students to shine brighter than their classmates. Such is usually the case with Sero, the young student who has the quirk that allows him to dispense sticky tape from his elbows, using them to trap enemies and zip around any environment. While there are plenty of different heroes to choose from, one My Hero Academia fan decided to make an amazingly on point cosplay for the grinning scotch tape master.
Twitter User RageGearProps created a pitch perfect interpretation of the UA Academy student's hero costume, bringing Hanta Sero's hero persona of Cellophane to life, looking ready to zip across the training course with the rest of his classmates:

While Sero hasn't necessarily had an amazing break out moment that endears him with fans in the same way that Midoriya, Todoroki, and others have had, his versatile use of his quirk has certainly been ingenuous and shows how much he's managed to grow over time. Originally using his power to swing from place to place like he was Spider-Man, Cellophane managed to train his power into an "ultimate attack" he dubbed "Barricade Tape". Said attack can wrap up his enemies and act as a quick way to protect both himself and his team mates if need be.
With My Hero Academia coming back this fall for its fourth season later this fall, Sero will hopefully have some more opportunities to prove himself in the fight against Overhaul and the super powered Yakuza under his thrall. We know one thing for sure though, he'll be grinning throughout every episode!

My Hero Academia was created by Kohei Horikoshi and has been running in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump since July 2014. The story follows Izuku Midoriya, who lives in a world where everyone has powers, even though he was born without them. Dreaming to become a superhero anyway, he's eventually scouted by the world's best hero All Might and enrolls in a school for professional heroes. The series has been licensed by Viz Media for an English language release since 2015. My Hero Academia is gearing up for an even bigger end of 2019 with both a fourth season of the anime and second big anime film too.
