The Heroes’ Symbol

Before I left New York I got into Heroes, a new series about super-powers evolving and how it affects peoples’ lives. The conclusion was expertly driven from episode to episode, building to an emotional crescendo that while fantastic, was very believable.

Having only caught the last half of the series I’m currently catching up with the way it starts, which is filling in a pile of blanks. While watching an early episode that shows a DNA sequence on the screen I noticed a weird symbol built into the text (see image above). This was pretty subtle, but it turns out to be a repeating image across most of the show’s episodes.

I love stuff like this – it makes you pay extra attention to ensure you see all the subtle detail you might otherwise miss, and makes you feel like the series’ world is more substantial. Good job Kring & team.
