Heroes Reborn TV costumes on display...

2015's Heroes Reborn mini-series was a follow-up to Tim Kring's show about people with superpowers which ran for four seasons from 2006 to 2010. This new television incarnation introduced a whole new batch of EVOs (evolved humans) and saw the return of some fan-favourites too, trying to save humanity from destruction.

Katana Girl is a digital creation that can exist in the video game world of Evernow and the real world, based on the likeness and memories of a video game designer's daughter. The lighter pink outfit is the character's street wear look, whilst this darker purple costume is based on the Evernow game fighting look.

When we first meet 'El Vengador' he is a masked East L.A. vigilante by the name of 'Oscar Gutierrez' (played by Marco Grazzini) helping EVOs escape persecution in an underground railroad with his super-strength power (a bit like a Lucha Libre Batman mashup).

When he is killed in action the mantle is taken up by his non-powered brother and troubled war veteran, 'Carlos Gutierrez' (Ryan Guzman). This is the original El Vengador costume, but after an unsuccessful mission as the masked hero, Carlos upgrades this design with kevlar and hydraulic motors to be more durable and enhance his training and strength as a soldier.

If you're a fan of the original series, be sure to enjoy these costumes and props from Heroes on display at Universal Studios Hollywood.
