Boku no Hero Academia - Part One English: My Hero Academia Japanese:
People are not born equal, a realization that four-year-old Izuku Midoriya faced when bullied by his classmates who had unique special powers. Izuku was one of the rare cases where he was born with absolutely no unique powers. This did not stop Izuku from pursuing his dream, a dream of becoming a great hero like the legendary All Might. To become the great hero he hopelessly wants to become, he now will join the ranks of one of the highest rated “Hero Academies” in the country: U.A. High School. With the help of his idol All Might, will he be able to claim the ranks and become a true hero?

Tell me what’s your favourite cover and favourite character if you’d like :D
Bruce: When you’re a part time giant rage monster, it tends to limit your social interactions and in turn your social skills out of fear. Tony’s not afraid. He’ll joke and push me around as much as anyone else. He’s got my back. And the fact the other guy likes him is nothing to sniff at either. I’ve never felt more at home than I do with him and the team. I’m happy….Don’t tell Tony that though. I’ll never hear the end of it. He’ll probably try to buy me a car again.

I didn’t go in-depth during that post though. I’ll talk about them more here.
The Internship Arc isn’t only about saving Eri. It’s about stopping the production of the Quirk-erasing drugs.
According to chapter 135, humans with Quirks have a special body mechanism called “plus alpha.” If this mechanism is stopped, Quirks are erased. Eraserhead’s Quirk temporarily halts this mechanism, but the Quirk-erasing drugs DAMAGES IT.
The stronger the Quirk-enhancing drug is, the more damage it can do to the plus alpha mechanism. Tamaki was hit with a weaker Quirk-erasing drug, so his body mechanism was able to heal.
Overhaul creates these Quirk-erasing drugs using his daughter’s blood cells because her blood cells attack the plus alpha body mechanism.
It’s horrifying to think about because Overhaul gets her blood by destroying parts of her body by using his dismantling Quirk before repairing the destroyed body part so that she doesn’t bleed to death. She wears bandages because Overhaul keeps destroying her arms to get her blood.
The horrifying child abuse alone is enough to go save Eri.
Furthermore, the Quirk-erasing drugs themselves are even more devastating. If the drugs’ production continues, Quirk-erasing drugs that permanently erases Quirks could be created. These drugs destroy the plus alpha mechanism and can permanently take the Quirks of countless heroes, causing society to lose countless heroes.
Because Overhaul is making these drugs using Eri, these Quirk-erasing drugs are spread to many different organizations. If this continues, a countless number of villains and thugs will have these drugs and take away the Quirks of many heroes and innocent individuals.
Saving Eri isn’t only about stopping child abuse. It’s about stopping the production of Quirk-erasing drugs to save the lives of potentially millions of people. If heroes lose their Quirks, then society will go into shambles and the era of heroes will end. Saving Eri is worth risking the lives of heroes and using all available resources.
The Quirk-erasing drugs are as devastating as the Quirk-enhancing drugs.
The Quirk-enhancing drugs are pretty powerful. The one this thug uses is amazingly strong.
However, according to Fat Gum, the drug he uses is an inferior type from Asia. There are stronger Quirk-enhancing drugs from America that last two hours. Two hours is a long time to be overpowered. The ones from America possibly have stronger effects too. That’s SCARY to think about.
As Kirishima says, it’s important to keep these drugs off the street.
The drug we don’t know too much about is the Quirk-enhancing drug. There has to be negative side effects to using the drug. As Bakugou has said, a Quirk is a body mechanism. Quirks can’t use their powers without consequences. The power of the Quirk has to come from somewhere.
Quirk-enhancing drugs remind me of anabolic steroids. Anabolic steroids make muscles and bones stronger. However, there are side effects. Anabolic steroids are hormones. Using them would cause the body to have an unnatural amount of hormones. As a result, anabolic steroids cause hormonal side effects. Hormones are chemical messagers that control various body mechanisms, such as hunger and sleep. Messing up with hormones can mess up all your body mechanisms, which is why steroids can give people heart attacks, high blood pressure, strokes, stomach irritation, ect.
The Quirk-enhancing drugs probably have a similar wide range of side effects. The drug probably works opposite from the Quirk-erasing drugs. Instead of inhibiting the plus alpha body mechanism, the drug enhances the plus alpha body mechanism. The side effects are probably determined by how the plus alpha mechanism is affected. It is a body mechanism, so there’s a good chance the Quirk-enhancing drug uses hormones, neurotransmitters, or other chemical messengers to affect the body mechanism. However, affecting one body mechanism affects others. The alpha body mechanism has to work with other body mechanisms in order for Quirks to work, and body mechanisms are all connected through the circulatory system, the nervous system, and other body systems.
Let’s use Momo as an example. Momo’s Quirk uses her fat cells.This means her plus alpha body mechanism works with her circulatory system and any other mechanism involved in fat usage. If the Quirk-enhancing drug hits her, her body alpha mechanism isn’t the only one affected. Her fat usage mechanism would also be affected since we know that her fat cells are used to create objects. Her fat cells could be affected in negative ways. She could lose too many fat cells, and then starve herself. Or, if her body senses her fat cells are being used too quickly, her body could eat away at her muscles for energy. Her heart in particular could also be affected because the heart is a muscle. Having her heart being eaten away could cause Momo to have a heart attack or other problems. Also, Momo having her fat and muscles being eaten away altogether could cause her body to shut down. Other body mechanisms could be affected since all body mechanisms are connected. The negative side effects are endless. Other Quirk users would suffer just as devastating side effects as Momo would.
