My Hero Academia knows what it takes to surprise fans, but it doesn't try to upset them for th most part. That is, until the manga's chapter went live. Over the weekend, My Hero Academia put out chapter 272 to the excitement of many but no one could have expected what the update would do. It turns out Shigaraki's power boost was more deadly than expected, and the Pro Heroes were caught unaware by his new abilities. So if there was ever any doubt, it seems All For One's successor is not someone to mess with.
So you have been warned! There are some major, major spoilers for My Hero Academia below! If you have not read chapter 272 yet, then please proceed with caution:
If you head online and look up My Hero Academia posts on social media, you will see a trend. It has only been a couple of hours since the manga put out chapter 272, and it is already the talk of the fandom. Fans have been eagerly awaiting this new chapter in light of last week's release, but no one expected the chapter to be this dark.
After all, it follows Shigaraki after the man wakes up and unleashes just the tip of his new power. The power up which Dr. Garaki gave Shigaraki made him capable of decaying an entire city - and we are not exaggerating here. The boy is able to take down most of a city with his Quirk, and that means an untold number of people died despite evacuation orders. Pro Heroes, villains, and civilians alike were caught up in the aftermath which left fans truly stunned.
As you can imagine, social media has been quick to react to the turn of events, and fans are nervously comparing Shigaraki to Thanos. His ability to turn people into dust is terrifying, but the boy doesn't need the Infinity Gauntlet to do that. All Shigaraki needs is a target now, and My Hero Academia fans have never been more scared of the villain as such.
