Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero has become the biggest movie in the Shonen franchise to date, introducing some major transformations to the Z-Fighters as the manga prepares to return. With the home video release only a few days away, the movie has revealed the cover art for the Blu-Ray's Steelbook, bringing together the heroes and the villains of the film. The art itself also features Piccolo and Gohan's new forms which have taken the anime world by storm.
In the movie, Gohan and Piccolo are wrapped up in the anime criminal organization's plot for revenge, with two new androids being introduced to the Dragon Ball lore created by the grandson of Dr. Gero, Dr. Hedo. On top of the threat coming from Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, the Red Ribbon Army was also working on bringing back a familiar villain as an entirely new character in Cell Max. With the arrival of this new iteration of the Dragon Ball Z villain, Piccolo is able to rely on two new transformations thanks to a wish made on the Dragon Balls, while Gohan reaches his ultimate form thanks to an anger-filled moment similar to that of his Super Saiyan 2 awakening. Gohan Beast has fundamentally made Goku's son stronger than ever, though has yet to appear outside of this film.
Dragon Ball Steelbook: Super Hero
Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero's Blu-Ray will hit the market on December 7th, with this new Steelbook art gathering both the major heroes and villains of the film that have helped change the landscape of the Shonen series moving forward:
Dragon Ball Super is preparing for its manga's return, with a storyline that will take place before the events of Super Hero, focusing on Goten and Trunks acting as superheroes before they played their role in the fight against Cell Max. With this prequel story most likely meaning that we won't be seeing Gohan Beast and/or Orange Piccolo making their debut in Weekly Shonen Jump, the pair of young Z-Fighters might be performing the fusion dance once again.
