Oh, Deku. My Sweet Deku-chan. You’re supposed to be the next Superman, not Batman.
You’re letting All For One get in your head, dude. Not a good thing. Do you really think he expects one of the Tartarus ex-goons to take you out? Nah. It’d be a pleasant surprise but what AFO really wants is to break your spirit and wear your strength down. Then either OG AFO or AFO/Shigaraki can easily capture you. Maybe both.
Speaking of AFO making Deku suffer, let’s talk about All Might. If AFO’s leading Deku down the destitute path of disdained despair, the final nail in the coffin has to be the death of All Might. Yeah, yeah. All Might’s Gonna Die predictions are a dime a dozen but from a narrative point I can see it happening this year. Seriously, what’s left for Toshinori to do? There’s his supposed talk with Stain hinted at before the Heroes VS PLF War and…that’s it. That’s all I can think of.
All Might may convince Stain to help Deku or, in general, lead the vigilante down a path that’s key to turning the tide in the heroes favor, but that’s all I got. And Horikoshi killing All Might while his relationship with Deku’s strained just adds an extra dose of gut punch pepper to the recipe. Get ready, Y’All. Because I don’t think All Might survives 2021. Before the year ends, I predict he’ll die.
Stain. I mentioned him earlier, but let’s talk about him a bit more. I’ve always felt he’d come back into the story after being sent to Tartarus. Could we see Stain teaming up with Deku? Maybe, but Deku could just simply capture him. The guy’s an escaped convict after all (And, almost murdered Ida). So unless Stain gets the drop on Deku and forces him to listen while he’s paralyzed by Stain’s quirk, there’s not gonna be much talking. Hm… Could Stain form his own vigilante team? I guess that’s possible. Look, I don’t know, kiddies. All I can tell you is Stain will play a major role in the final arc(s), so keep your eyes peeled.
This was a good chapter! Deku’s gone full loner and Stain’s back. The heroes are desperate for answers and AFO’s having the time of his life. Going by the heroes talk at the beginning of the chapter, we may see more good guys joining Team Endeavor. Personally, I like to see Fat Gum, Rock Lock, Ryukyu, Suneater, Nejire Chan, Lemillion, and the Wild Wild Pussycats learn about One For All. Eraser Head too. Don’t forget Present Mic. You know what? Let’s just tell everyone. Ms. Joke, Monoma, Red Robin, Wolverine, Thanos, everybody.
