'My Hero Academia' Reveals Shoot-On-Sight Orders For One Villain

My Hero Academia does its best to live by the law, but there are some who just cannot keep in line. Sure, the franchise has plenty of law-breaking baddies, but there are heroes who will do the same in the name of justice. However, it looks like one vigilante is ready to take things to the next level.

After all, Knuckleduster is advocating a shoot-on-sight response for one villain, and he will be the one to pull the trigger if need be.

Recently, My Hero Academia: Vigilantes published a new chapter, and it was there fans met up with a favorite vigilante. Knuckleduster came back after some time away, and he was confronted by a detective asking after a new villain. It was then the vigilante learned a man is going around Tokyo with the acceleration quirk he wielded once, and it takes him no time at all to tell the police they got to take the baddie out — for good.

"If you come across this villain again, don't hesitate. Just open fire," the scarred vigilante says.

"Forget warning shots. Aim for the vitals and shoot. Gotta catch this guy off guard or else he'll dodge."

Naturally, the detective says the police cannot gun someone down just because, but Knuckleduster has no such reservations.

"Then the police can't get the job done. You need someone who can work around the law. I guess taking down guys like that is why I'm here," he promises.

So far, fans know very little about the man going around Tokyo with Knuckleduster's old quirk, but fans know he is dangerous. Not only has the villain encountered the police a few times, but he nearly killed a fellow baddie known as Octoid just for the fun of it. Now, Knuckleduster is ready to take out the guy marring his quirk's legacy, but the hero might not be expecting to learn his former pupil is the one behind this whole mess.

Do you think this villain will actually get taken out...? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
