My Hero Academia's fourth season has caused some serious feels among those fans of UA Academy. With Lemillion losing his quirk seemingly forever during his battle with Overhaul, thanks to the power erasing drug that the Yakuza created, this wasn't even the heaviest blow that the heroes received following this epic struggle. With Sir Nighteye entering the fray, the one time sidekick to All Might found himself sacrificing his life in an effort to bring down Overhaul and bring his nefarious plans to a close. With Nighteye now deceased, the question of who will take up the reins of his agency has seemingly been answered and it's not who you think!
Much like Marvel's X-Men, not every citizen who receives super powers ends up looking like a handsome gentleman or beautiful woman, instead, some don't even look human any more and there is one hero that was introduced in this fourth season who perhaps looks more disturbing than any other character we've seen. Centipeder is a professional hero who has the ability to transform his arms into centipedes themselves. Alongside this bizarre Quirk, Centipeder himself doesn't have what we like to call a "human face" but rather has a giant centipede resting upon his body that would make one believe he was a villain on first glance.
Centipeder will be taking over Sir Nighteye's agency, with this information being dropped following Nighteye's funeral. With the professional hero joining forces alongside Lemillion and Bubble Girl, it's clear that the hero is looking to continue the work of the deceased crime fighter who had the ability to look into the future. With Nighteye's final use of his powers, he was able to see that Mirio, despite losing his quirk, still has a bright future as a hero and will surely learn all he can while continuing to be a hero regardless of not having powers.
While Overhaul's arc may be finished in this fourth season of the popular anime, the Cultural Festivel arc is looking to introduce a new villain pair that are looking to shake things up at UA Academy in the forms of Gentle and La Brava!
What do you think of Centipeder taking over the reins of Nighteye's agency? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and UA Academy!
