Prequel - Dark Matters
“Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters” Digital Prequel Series: The digital prequel “Heroes Reborn: Dark Matters” bridges the gap between the original series and “Heroes Reborn,” reintroducing viewers to the “Heroes” universe and unveiling a whole new generation of “Heroes.” It's been five years since the public became aware of the existence of evolved humans or "EVOs" who possess incredible, supernatural abilities. In that time, the public has grown to either fear or revere EVOs. An online community forms around the rallying cry of the anonymous Hero_Truther, who seeks to humanize EVOs in the wake of lies, slander and fear mongering. Among those posting their personal stories is Phoebe Frady (Aislinn Paul “Degrassi: The Next Generation”), who is encouraged to document her origin story by her brother, Quentin (Henry Zebrowski “A to Z”). But as Phoebe struggles to control her power, she attracts unwanted attention from a mysterious new company.
